Emmaus Walk

So, I haven't blogged in a while, and I had intentions of blogging on Monday after my return from my Emmaus Walk, but I was very tired, and smacked back into reality when I came home. {chuckle} My kids didn't have school on Monday, and after being on a "Spiritual High" all weekend I soon remembered that kids fight, laundry still needs washin', floors need swept, bathrooms need cleaned....No, the world didn't change. Just me. I never expected to receive what I did from my Walk. It was life changing. If you haven't been, or don't know what in the world I'm talking about, get online and do a search for the Emmaus Walk, find your local chapter, and get signed up. You do have to have a sponser, if you don't know anyone personally that has been, I'm sure they'll find one for you. You won't regret going. I promise!

Emmaus Walk

Thursday evening I will be going to a local chapter of the Emmaus Walk. I really don't know what to expect. I just know that it's supposed to help strengthen your spiritual walk with the Lord. I'm kinda nervous about being out of my "comfort zone." Being away from home and surrounded by strangers is a little unnerving to me, but I've heard nothing but good about the ministry. I'll be gone from Thursday evening until Sunday evening. Cell phones, cameras, computers, even watches are not allowed. Hopefully Monday I'll be able to blog a little about my experience. So please keep me in your prayers that I won't get to homesick. Thank you!

God is in control. He does all things well. I have to keep a positive attitude this morning after hearing the results of the election. No matter how badly I wanted McCain/Palin in office that's not how things turned out. Now it is our job as Christians to keep praying for our Country and our future leader. I pray that the Lord would open his eyes to the truth and he would change his views on abortion and marriage, and other issues as well, but that's all we can do now, Pray!

Election Day!

Well, I've performed my civic duty, all I can do now is pray that people will vote with conviction and for the Lord to have mercy on our Nation and whomever He would have as Commander in Chief will be elected. We must remember that our God is Sovereign no matter the outcome.
After voting stop by Life in the Craft Lane with Mandie and pick up this cool badge!
