WE ARE NOT ALONE ...

I know you all love pictures and I promise to do a post w/ them soon, but over the last week I have done several posts, received a ton of emails, and spoken w/ some amazing people ... It felt great knowing that there are a bunch of CRAZY PEOPLE out there ... It has just confirmed what I already knew in my heart WE ARE NOT ALONE !!! God has woven us together for SUCH A TIME AS THIS ... We are our own community and even though we don't get to meet once a week, bring food, and do a bible study together ... WE ARE DOING CHURCH in a way that I think makes God proud of us ... We are supporting those fundraising by purchasing items, we are encouraging those waiting, we are praying for each other's needs and standing in the GAP, we are making friends and sharing our lives w/ strangers, we are THERE everyday via cyberspace SHOWING UP FOR EACH OTHER ... I have met some amazingly strong women in my community because of my blog that otherwise I would have never meet ... God is sending us to each other so we can make a difference in each other's lives and in the lives of those in need ... It doesn't matter whether your calling is adopting, intercessory pray, feeding the homeless, visiting those in prison, sharing a meal w/ a widow ... It is all important to God ... He calls us to care for the least of these ... I believe by us sharing our lives He has opened our eyes to those so special in His heart "THE LEAST OF THESE" and the blessings we receive far out weigh anything we do... This is one reason why I am so excited about THE BOOK ... I know sharing all our stories will change people ... It will call people to ACTION ... It will comfort people ... It will answer questions ... It will give a testimony of what God is doing in all of our lives ...

Have a blessed week knowing you are not alone !!!!


Side Note: I know I have posted a lot lately ... Please don't think I have extra time on my hands ...I have just let my house, laundry, and dishes completely pile up .. I am on VACATION FROM CLEANING ... LOL ... Try it ... It is fun for a few days !!!

Keep having fun, Gwen. Enjoy the rest of your week. Keep touching lives, sweetie!!

Love hearing all that you have to say. Cleaning is totally over-rated. The kids just come right behind you & mess it up, so there really is no point. Posting is much more worth the time :o)

Gwen,

What an inspirational post! Thank you, friend. I agree with all you said. We are a little family here in blogland. It amazes me how many of my cyber friends creep into my prayers at night. Isn't that a blessing???

My sis-in-law has a great plaque in her kitchen, it says: "Cleaning the house while the children are still growing is like shoveling the snow while the snow is still snowing." I am on a perminant cleaning vacation! At least my husband thinks so! :o) There are more important things to do!

Blessings-Andie
