Is it really Thursday?

Hello Sisters!  I’m peeking out from under my covers for the first time in a while. I’ve slept a total of 62 hours since Sunday night and while you would think I would feel rested, I’m still a bit run down. The flu is not kind. On the bright side, I don’t have a fever today, so I’m praising Jesus for that!

We have rescheduled Pastor Matthew Barnett’s conference call for those who are participating in them. It will be February 29th at 1:00 pm EST.  I’ll send you the details Monday.

I tried to think of something awesome to post today, but it turns out I didn’t have to. I found it somewhere else. Stephanie Clayton wrote an excellent message called “Sin Plays Dirty.” It spoke to me as pure Truth. It is profound, to the point, convicting, and will make you think. We all need people we can be real with our ugly stuff and she addresses this.  So check it out and leave her a comment today. In fact, I so want you to read it, that if you leave a comment, you will be entered to win An Untroubled Heart, our next online study book.

You have 24 hours to leave a comment to be entered. The comment must be left on Stephanie’s blog, not mine. An email doesn’t count either. The comment must be on her blog.

Be blessed! Hope you all are happy and healthy!

  6. Wow opening up and being “real” in a relationship in this day and age can be difficult…so glad that there are people out there who I can be real with and who I can share my heart with….for many reasons trust…is a huge issue with me…it was broken …and I am working hard to repair the trust in others that I have allowed one person to tear down in me.

  7. So glad you are feeling better, cant wait to see what’s in store next week. Loved reading “sin plays dirty” good reminder to be careful.

    Thank you for bringing to mind Gal. 3:3. So good to know others are challenged as I am with preserving after a study or group comes to a close. I know that the only way I can do anything in this life is through my Jesus who gives me strength!
