I'm Waiting on You, Lord!

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

 I will move ahead, bold and confident
Takeing every step in obedience
While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve you while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord

Cookie

Meet Cookie.
She is a sweet little Cocker Spaniel that I am watching over the weekend while her owner, Christie, is out of town caring for her mother who is going through chemotherapy.
 Please keep Christie and her mother in your prayers.  Most importantly for their salvation but also for health and strength.

My Thoughts

During my quiet time this morning I was reading a devotional book called A Gentle Spirit.  It was speaking on Philippians 4:8 and how we need to take each of our thoughts captive.

I'm really blogging this for myself, so I can refer back to it often.
The things we think on are the things that feed our souls.  If we think on pure and lovely things, we shall grow pure and lovely like them; and the converse is equally true.  Very few people at all realize this, and consequently there is a great deal of carelessness, even with careful people, in regard to their thoughts.  They guard their words and actions with the utmost care, but their thoughts, which, after all, are the very spring and root of everything in character and life, they neglect entirely.  So long as it is not put into spoken words, it seems of no consequence at all what goes on within the mind.  No one hears or knows, and therefore they imagine that the vagrant thoughts that come and go as they list, do not harm.  Such persons are very careless as to the food offered to their thoughts, and accept haphazardly, without discrimination, anything that comes. 
Every thought we think, in every hour we live, must be, not necessarily about Christ, but it must be the thought Christ would think were He placed in our circumstances and subject to our conditions.  This is what it means really to feed on Him and be nourished by the true bread of life that cometh down from heaven.

The Man Card

A few months ago an older gentlemen at church came to me with a great "man"card idea he thought up one night.  The idea was to have one card that could be used for all occasions.  The card came together quickly once I sat down to work on it.  I remembered I had these brads that look like screws and then that made me think about duct tape.  I didn't think I could make this "man" card without putting some duct tape on it.  I hope he gets a good laugh out of this card.
