I couldn't have said it better myself...so I won't....

I have been reading this blog a lot lately and I guess it just resonates with me because of the fact that we are having another child. Please read her beautifully written blog post "Could it be?"

I love the idea that our home is "holy ground"...beautiful.

I will try to be back more often. I miss blogging so much!!!

We have A LOT of stuff going this week so it will be at least a couple of weeks until I get it up and running! Miss everyone and I miss blogging! See you soon!!!! And, say "Hi" if you drop by here, please!! :) ♥♥♥♥♥

~I so want to be fearless~

"The Lord challenges us to suffer persecutions and to confess him. He wants those who belong to him to be brave and fearless. He himself shows how weakness of the flesh is overcome by courage of the Spirit. This is the testimony of the apostles and in particular of the representative, administrating Spirit. A Christian is fearless. ~Tertullian~

While I have been on an internet break, God has been doing so much work in my heart. I am getting fond of this quiet time! :) I really don't have a lot of time to share things lately but I don't want to completely disappear, either. Hopefully, I can work something out soon.

Specific prayer requests:

*Finances- we have had central AC trouble & our van quit... :( LOTS of money spent lately that we do not have to be spending. .... but, as always, the Lord has provided. :)

*Family- as usual, some family problems...can't say more right now..please pray.

Love y'all LOTS......THANKS!!!!!

Blogging is just so hard to do...

For some reason I am having a MAJOR case of blogging brain freeze right now so all you get is my explanation and an apology and hopefully, this will work itself out soon! Still no luck with my other blog so I guess this is the only blog I will have now.

If anyone still reads here, please email me at mama2clairelily@gmail.com with your email address and contact info so I can keep in touch. I lost all of you with the email hacking thing.

Lots of Love,

"Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." Romans 12: 9-11

Hello again..

I miss this blog. I just do and I have no idea what to write here but it's a happy place for me so I am returning. Keeping it private but returning. So many things I have going around in my head and not enough time to write them all. Be back soon!
