Jason Kerr-When You Pray

This "When You Pray" sermon is powerful, its awesome. I know when you see the minutes below them you think, "I don't have time for this today."

Trust me, try it.

Jason is easy to listen to, he's funny, he keeps your attention and he is full of revelation from the Lord. He shares wonderful testimonies and well, simply put, I'm moved every time I hear him. My heart hungers for God just a little more.

Trust me, try it.

You didn't stumble upon this by accident.

(Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and turn off the music so you can hear the message.)

I Feel Different Today

I feel different today than I did yesterday.

I feel different than I've felt the last few months.

I think today realization hit me in a way that it hadn't before.

Tony is singing a song at the wedding and he has been practicing today.

I felt every word.

It just opened up a well within me.

My baby girl is getting married in 14 days.

There are so many mixed emotions that go with that. I wish I could express myself so poetically so that you could feel the way I feel but I'm just not good at that. There isn't a word to express the chaotic emotions that are stirring inside of me.

I feel everything at once.

It's almost numbing.


There will not be a dry eye in the place.

Only 18 more days

I cannot believe the wedding is almost here. It has been a hectic few days trying to remember last minute needed items, get things ordered and determine if they will arrive in time. I sort of put some things on the back burner while getting through the Famine and reality didn't hit me that its only a few more I've spent the last two days searching, making lists and checking them off. Whew!

Many people have been concerned with me and the empty nest syndrome but if you'll recall last year when Heaven graduated, I experienced it heavily then. This go round I'm fine and at complete peace with Heaven getting married. The only stresses are the fine details of the wedding itself. The food in particular. Its hard deciding how much food will be enough. We truly do not have an honest head count either so I'll plan on the larger number attending preferring to have leftovers than to run out of food.

I'm still waiting on dresses to come in and I still have to get shoes for the girls. Me, I have no clue what I'm wearing yet. Sigh.... :) It'll come together I'm sure and hey, whether it comes together or not, its still happening one way or the other, right?! Ha!

Heaven's bridal portraits are simply gorgeous. I'm 200% satisfied with them and can't wait to see them developed. I sure wish I could give you all a glimpse, but alas, you must wait.

Keep me, the couple, the wedding, the family and all the details in your prayers. They are greatly appreciated. Hugs to all my bloggy friends, readers, commenters and lurkers alike.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”-Philippians 4:6-7
