For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Here is the Super Girl with her cape!
Actually she's dressed up to go to work. She works at a local fruit farm and dressed in costume today. They work really hard there this time of year, but they have a lot of fun too.
So Mom's and Dad's never fear, the little girl never truly goes away!!!

This group is so much fun. They bring so many different facets to our Bible Study. We have all experienced so many different things serving the Lord and we are all in various stages of our Christian Walk. It just makes it so interesting when we meet. If one of the younger ones are talking about a particular problem they are going through, you can usually count on one of the older ladies having had a similar problem at some point in their life. Sometimes they can offer assistance or ideas on how to cope or sometimes they just offer a hug and "I've been there and I understand." which is so encouraging. You know God is so good to allow us to have friends to help us through this life.
Where I was originally heading with this post was something Beth Moore said in the video. She talked about clapping for God when He does something awesome. She says after she's been at service and has seen God move that on the way home when she stops at a traffic light she'll just start clapping and praising God. Then she said if we aplaud God, He may be more likely to do an encore. I thought that was such was such a neat idea. So, I think I'll start thanking God more and praising Him for all he's done and clapping.
So thank You, God. I praise you for my Bible Study friends and my new blogging friends. You are so good to me.
"O clap your hands , all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph." KJV

Our family loves Disney and my oldest daughter loves the Princessess. These are hers and if you'll notice Ariel has center stage. She is her all time favorite. In fact, here's a picture of KLS with Ariel this summer at Disney World. Aren't they cute?

We took a drive up north to Young's Dairy Farm. This was so much fun. We walked around and looked at the animals and just enjoyed being together. We ate lunch at the "Golden Jersey Inn" which had homestyle cooking. He ate beef and noodles and I had chicken and dumplings. Man were they good. Definitely, good old-fashioned comfort food. We then walked back to the Dairy and had an ice cream. Really good.
After we left there we went to John Bryan State Park and looked around for awhile. We haven't been there for probably ten years. We made plans to go back soon when we have time and are better dressed to go hiking. I can't wait. We used to spend so much time walking there and making plans and dreaming of our future. It was so much fun to be back.
We had to come back early to pick the girls up from school, but it was such a nice few hours with just him and me talking and spending time being together.

I don't know about you, but I intend to focus on my God; not on the giants in my life.

1. I'm a middle child. I have an older and younger brother and an older and younger sister. I'm not real into the birth order thing, but I know a lot of people are. I'm not sure what the middle child is supposed to be like, but whenever I tell anyone that I'm a middle child they say, Ohhh (kinda like that explains a lot. lol)
2. I've worked at the same place for 32 years. (Is it time to retire yet?)
3. I love southern gospel music. Especially the all male quartets. My grandfather sang bass in a quartet. My mom sang alto and dad sang lead in a quartet. I used to sing lead in a quartet. It must be in my blood.
4. I love dogs. My current dog's name is Lily.
5. Disney World is one of my all time favorite places to be.
6. Looking at a starry sky or the ocean makes me think of God and how awesome He is and how wonderful His creation is.
7. I have the best husband and daughters in the world. I'm really sorry for the rest of you, but they are mine!
Ok. Now I'm supposed to tag 7 other people. Let's see.....
Traci of Gallagher's World
Karen of Daily Painting by Karen
Cathy of The Voice of Truth
I'm only tagging 4. I know it's supposed to be 7, but I guess I'm breaking the rules this time.
Our ladies Bible Study just finished week 6 of the Beth Moore Study, "Believing God". What an awesome study. I feel like I'm learning so much. I'm learning to really believe God and what He says instead of just believing in Him. There are 5 main concepts of Believing that she is teaching. The one I love probably the most is "I am who He says I am." I need to hear that and remember that. I have a tendency to believe what Satan says instead of what God says. You know Satan always puts us down and tells us we aren't worth anything. But God says we are because He loves us and made us, so that makes us valuable to Him. The reason I'm worth something is because of God and not me. He says I and loved, blessed, redeemed, forgiven, adopted, accepted and chosen. Wow!! All because of Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8 says: "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." NLT
That is so astounding to me, that He loved me while I was still a sinner and died for me so I can now be called His own. I don't know about you, but that makes all the difference in how I can view myself. There's a song that says "When He sees me He sees the Blood of the Lamb, He sees me as worthy and not as I am. He views me in garments as white as the snow. For the Lamb of God is worthy and He washed me this I know."
All I can say is Thank You Lord.

Esther seems to be popping up in my life a lot right now. I'm currently reading the book "Hadassah" by Tommy Tenney, which the movie is based on. Then my husband talked about Esther in his sermon on Sunday morning, which was about having courage and not fear. Also, our Women's Bible Study Group has been talking about doing Beth Moore's newest Bible Study next spring which is on Esther.
I think maybe there are some things I can learn from her to help in my life.
