Awesome Creator

This is a blog I put on our church ladies blog page. Just wanted to add it here, too. Check out the ladies blog page at

Good morning,everyone. I almost forgot it was my turn to blog today... :)

Here's my thought.. God is an awesome Creator. Yesterday, my mom and I were sitting in the drive-thru at Jack in the Box (don't worry, we only got 2 diet Cokes) on our way to Mason's birthday party. As we sat there, I noticed a little bird sitting on a fence. He was just looking around, you know, like birds do and I just starting thinking about what an awesome little creature he is. No, he wasn't a beautiful bird. Just one of those black birds we see around here all the time. But still, God created him and he is an awesome creature. I thought about how God created the mountains in all their majesty, the oceans in all their vastness, and then He creates this little bird that is so small and fragile. And, I thought what an awesome God He is!

Then, a scripture came to mind about how He even knows when the sparrow falls.

"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your father."
"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered."
"fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Matthew 10:29-31)

So, if He even knows when a sparrow falls He knows what we need and thinks a LOT more of us than a sparrow. Isn't that an awesome thought?

As we watched the bird, it looked like he was just looking around at his kingdom. It was like he was thinking, this is my world and I'm just observing it from this fence and all you people are so stressed out about everything but I have no worries. I'm just a bird but my Creator is awesome and He takes care of me so guess what, people, He can take care of your needs, too. (of course, I really doubt that's what he was thinking, since birds have no reasoning powers like humans, but I was thinking with my imagination...scary, huh?)

In Matthew 6:25-26 Jesus says, "Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?"
Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?"

So, whatever we're going through this week or the weeks ahead we can be reminded that God has it in control. If He can create the mountains then create a little bird then it's nothing to take care of us. He is an awesome God!

Hope this makes sense. This is my last blog for this month. Hopefully, I will get to blog again. I enjoy doing this!!! :) Love you guys!

Until next time,

Okay, so I've been unemployed since January. It is now July and no definite prospects on a new job. I have applied and applied online through,, Craigslist.....where to go next? I've applied at the temp agencies, too. Let's see, Kelly, Manpower, Cornerstone....

It's frustrating so I just felt like blogging about it today. I know there are a lot of people in my same predicament, too, so believe me, I'm not having a pity party. Or am I? I don't know. I don't want to complain and I'm not because since January all my needs have been met. God is still good! So far, I've been able to pay my bills and my needs have been supplied.

And, some are going to think I'm crazy but I have a cruise to Alaska coming up in August! This trip has been paid for already so I don't feel too bad going. That's only about 2 weeks or so away so you know I'm excited! I'll say hello to Sarah Palin for everybody if I happen to see her! :)

Back to the subject, I have the trip to look forward to but when I get back I'll still be unemployed. I have never been in this situation before in my life and I'm ready to get back in the workforce. Will I ever find another job? This economy is so bad and there are thousands of us out there looking so it's kind of scary! I HAVE to find another job. I'm single and have no one to fall back on who makes money, too. You know, like a husband, know what I mean...?

So, in my frustrations I wonder if God is leading me in another direction. Will I ever work for Corporate America again or is God leading me into another field? I have no idea. Since I've been off I started teaching piano to some kids in the church and I have enjoyed it. I've also been working and doing a lot for the church (I'm the secretary) and helping keep my nephew Daniel. I have enjoyed all the freedom I've had but I'm really ready to work again. How do you know God's will? The only thing I know to do is to continue to look for work and pray that a good job comes along soon. So, Lord, I'm waiting to see where you lead me....:)

To everyone who is in the same place as me, we just have to hold on and know that God is in control! We need to pray for this economy that it will turn around soon. If you have a job, or your husband has a job, etc., be thankful! and pray for the rest of us! You never know when it may be you!

Love you all,

weight loss

My brother has challenged me to lose weight. Every 10 pounds he is going to give me $50.00. Now, who can pass that up? I'm not going to...:)

So, I'm on my way...I lost 4 1/2 pounds this week and I was even sick on Monday! That's probably why I lost so much but hey, 4 1/2 pounds is 4 1/2 pounds, right? I only have six more to go to get the
first $50.00! I've decided I will post as much about this journey as I can. Right now I have time since I'm UNEMPLOYED!!! UGH! That's another subject for another day!!! :)

As of today, this is what I look like. I'll post another pic for each 10 pound loss. Hope I get to post a lot of pics! :)

Have a great afternoon!
