Fasting & praying.

Oh it’s a day of fasting and praying. I’m re-reading this scripture lots today:

Philippians 4:4-23 (The Message)

4-5Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you're on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
6-7Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
8-9Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

Still no baby yet. One step further with the house process. God is faithful. He will provide and He will follow through. I just need to keep remembering this.


Yesterday evening was spent with my best friend, Libby, and her husband and Eugene. We were treated to grilled burgers, baked beans, salsa dip, fresh fruit, and a trip to Young’s for ice cream. Perfect. Oh, how it made me wish it were summer and we were all still in high school!

I’m so thankful for good friends – definitely my wondrous thing yesterday. 

And today I got a super nice phone call from Maria, another friend of mine from where I used to work. She said such encouraging words. Yet another wondrous thing.

So waiting, praying, fasting, listening, trusting, and deciding. Lots going on!
