So happy that it’s fast approaching the new year. I can only hope that life will keep getting better and better.
Went to see “Greatest Showman” last night with my son and a few of his friends. Loved it, even though it is not even close to being a biographical story on P.T. Barnum’s life, it was, however; a great movie. The music, singing and dancing were excellent. I’d go see it a 2nd time for sure. From beautiful clothes and scenery to the great acting, it was a beautiful movie. It definitely was inspirational in that it encourages us to chase our dreams, no matter what anyone else thinks or feels.
As for the Lord and me, we’ve been trying to communicate to no avail. I’ve been praying, asking and seeking; but I’m getting confusing replies and I’m sure that it will become clearer to me as time goes on; but at present, I’m hitting a few walls. I’ve had two dreams on point, though they confused me greatly, I’ve received several picture clues as well; but I think I’m blocking them. I’ve received several “MY plan, MY will, MY way” scriptures and I’m just hoping that I’ll figure it all out in time. I think my upset from last week has me shut down on some levels and I have to let that go and continue on. My heart is hurting; but I will carry on with the faith walk.
As for they mayhem, well, the dog is driving me nuts. His bladder control problems are wrecking havoc all over the house and I just want to scream. I know it’s not his fault; but it is messy and driving me nuts just the same. I mop the floors daily. As soon as I finish, I’m positive he waits until just then and he does it again. UGH!
I’ve just finished John Bevere’s book, “Holy Spirit”. Awesome book. Loved it. Can’t wait to start my next one, “Girls with a Sword” by his wife, Lisa Bevere. I’ve listened to both of them speak on YouTube and am very impressed with their teachings on God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I’m trying to grow closer to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in my faith walk. I can only hope to get to the level these two people have reached.
I am currently sharing the job of Audio-Visual duties with another at my church. Since we no longer have any children for “Kids Church” I’m not teaching. We have only 3 youth, who go to AWANA at another church on Wednesday night, so I don’t have duties for them, so I’ve been at a loss. My dear friend has been doing the AV for years and I had the opportunity to do it for her a few weeks ago since she was unavailable. Well, I so enjoyed it, I told her I’d love to join her in this duty. She was overjoyed and I now feel I have renewed purpose in my church life. So, we’re switching out weeks as needed. When I have Indoor Drumline duty the end of January and twice in March, she’ll take it and other than that, we’ll have every other week.
I love to serve. I like to feel useful and I know that this will be the best thing for me after the boy goes off to college. YEAH!
Can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for us all!
