Good Morning Beautiful Peeps!!

This week I received devastating news that a dear FB ministry friend, who I dearly loved and admired, passed away. My heart aches this morning as I write this. Many of us just found out about this tragedy a few days ago and are still trying to make sense of it all. Deborah Hosmer Meyer was one of the most encouraging Christian women I have ever known. Although I don't understand all of this, I know that God is still in control and He absolutely knows what he is doing.I encourage you to visit Deborah’s blog. You will be blessed by her posts. We have also created a page on FB as a tribute to her legacy - A Tribute to Deborah Hosmer Meyer. If you knew her please feel free to share something from your heart on her page.

Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11). Friends, we need one another in ministry. I keep asking myself if there was something I could have done for Deborah that I didn’t do. Many times we are walking through very difficult times but we choose to be silent and carry the load alone. Please don’t do that. There are many ministry women on face book, including myself, who are more than willing to pray with you and encourage you. We really need to reach out to one another, to encourage, love and pray for our sisters in Christ. Our lives are full and we are very busy trying to balance life and ministry. I regret that I didn’t tell Deborah how much she meant to me before she passed away. I encourage you to take time this week to reach out to those who have made a difference in your life and let them know how important they are to you. Life is fragile…………

I pray God’s blessings upon you, your family and your ministry today. You are loved and appreciated more than you know. Be blessed!

Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

Pray that you had an awesome week! We were in MO visiting our son and daughter-in-law and had a wonderful time! Hate the 18 hour drive to and from MO but it was worth it!

Just want to encourage you to check the Discussion posts on the Chocolate and Coffee wall. I love to read your comments and it is a great place to encourage and support one another. Please check it out this week and participate.

Be encouraged today and allow God to do an awesome work in your lives. We face so many impossible situations every week that would be hopeless if we had to handle them with our limited strength. But God specializes in working through us to achieve the impossible.

Don't focus on your problems. Focus on your solution!! God is able and still reigns. He loves you. He is your comfort and your strength. He is the answer to ALL the things you are facing today. Grab His hand and allow Him to walk with you through life's challenges.

I am praying for God's anointing power to be upon you today. May the Lord continue to bless you, your family and ministry in a way you never imagined!

Appreciate each of you. Hope to see many of you in September at the Conversations '10 conference in Dallas, TX.

Love you,

Good Morning Beautiful Girlfriends!

My hubby and I are on the road to Springfield, MO. We will be visiting our son Brandon and daughter-in-law Casey this week. Modern technology……. Riding in the car with my laptop on the net!!

Thank you to those who were able to respond to my email last week sharing your insight and wisdom about your quiet time with the Lord. I sincerely appreciate all your comments.

I am praying for you that God’s blessings will surround you, your family and ministry this week. Many of you have sent emails this past week asking for prayer. I pray that those prayers will be answered SOON! Even when all appears to be gloomy and hopeless our God still reigns! PTL!!

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord (Psalm 27:14). We all know that waiting for God is not easy. Many times it seems that God isn’t answering our prayers or simply doesn’t understand the urgency of our situation. Like he has no clue what we are walking through!! Ever been there? That kind of thinking implies that God is not in control or is not fair. But God is worth waiting for. God does care and uses waiting to refresh, renew, and teach us. Let’s make good use of our waiting times by seeking God to discover what he may be trying to teach in them.

Have an awesome Sunday friends! No matter what level your ministry may be at today, God is still using you to influence lives around you.

Love you,
