Luna-tics & the Sword of the Spirit

My kids are obsessed with the moon. I'm talking jumping-up-and-down, cheering, dancing, & singing EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. it appears. We all have to run to the window, if Annelise sees it on her own, and I feel like I am giving her the greatest gift in the world, if I notice it - esp. during the day while we're out & about - and point it out. It's better than candy. I think this obsession may be genetic, because my mom loves to tell everyone one of my very first words was "moon" (I think before "mama") and I also dragged the entire household to the door anytime I spied it. It's a great day here, b/c the moon was so huge and rose right along our drive home this afternoon. :-)

My root canal is officially scheduled for next Thursday morning...and while I'm not "excited" about it, God has - yet, again - done a number on my attitude & perspective. I am happy(?) to get it taken care of, thankful that JB can help out with the kids that day, glad I really like the endodontist, and hopeful that, in the end, my smile may look even brighter.

I've been compiling and going over as much scripture as I can that applies to our state of housing (& hopefully future job offer) limbo. It truly does slash the doubt that creeps in!

The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer. - Psalm 6:9
Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." - John 13:7

The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows (recognizes, has knowledge of, and understands) those who take refuge and trust in Him. - Nahum 1:7
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, "So shall your offspring be." Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead -- since he was about a hundred years old -- and that Sarah's womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. - Romans 4:18-21

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. - Hebrews 10:23

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. - Psalm 139:23-24

"My grace is enough for you; For my strength and power are made perfect in (your) weakness." Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weakness... that the strength and power of Christ may rest upon me. - 2 Corinthians 12:9



  1. LOVE the scriptures, especially the one from Nahum. most people do not quote that book of the Bible, so props to you for that! i love the moon, as well. i might not be that crazy about it, but i find it soothing and peaceful to watch. i hope you have a GREAT friday!

  2. Love all the scriptures--pray on that and it will help you through. I hope your housing situation works out and hopefully the job situation will improve as well. God will appreciate the trust that you are where you are supposed to be according to HIS plan and likely will reward you for your faith.

    I must also add one of the greatest lines of inspiration EVER---"What doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger!" And while that root canal may feel like it's death, it's not and you'll pull through! Big hugs!

  3. Thank y'all for being here with me through this!!!
