Prayer Requests

Okay, so here's the thing...every week I put together a prayer request and send it out to everyone to pray for each other (e-mail addresses are kept hidden via BCC). I can't tell you how many people are in need of prayer right now! So I decided to open it up to EVERYONE. Prayer is POWERFUL...no matter how small or large the need, let others pray for you.

Please leave me a message and I will send it out.

A Piece of Cake
Author Uknown

A little boy is telling his grandma how everything is going wrong.....school, family problems, severe health problems, etc. Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which, of course, he does.
"Here, have some cooking oil."
"Yuck" says the boy.

"How about a couple raw eggs?"
"Gross, Grandma!"

"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?"
"Grandma, those are all yucky!"

"Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves, but when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!

God works the same way. Many times we wonder why he would let us go through such bad and difficult times, but God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good!

We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!" God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart. I hope your day is a piece of cake!

"I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst."
John 6:35

What a great idea!

Visiting you from SITS...hope you have a wonderful day.

(oh and my prayer is for clarity as I make job decisions. this being unemployed for nearly a year thing and now having a couple of choices for employment is kind of messing with my head!)

I hate to be a whiner but I could probably use one. I fell down in my garage yesterday and I think I've sprained my knee. It's so painful and I can't do hardly anything. To top it off, I'm babysitting 4 small children until Sunday for my friend and her husband as they are in Texas adopting a new baby. So, I'm a little stressed and tired and having a hard time keeping up with all these kids and now my knee is shot.
I know it's not a big deal in the big scheme of things but I could probably use a boost. :)
