I serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today;
I know that He is living, whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He's always near.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
Along lifes narrow way.
He lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.

Happy Easter!!

A Belated "Happy St. Patrick's Day"!!

Hey everyone! Yes, it's been awhile since you've heard from me. I just haven't had much to post! There isn't too much to report other than the fact that this past weekend was pretty full. On Friday evening we attended a friend's wedding (if you visit Ab's Spot you can view the pictures there); on Saturday morning, we made our way to a special choir practice for Easter Sunday's program; on Sunday, we attended church and on Monday (St. Patrick's Day!) we enjoyed a hearty Irish meal while visiting with friends and playing a game.

Since I failed to post a festive greeting yesterday, I'm making up with a short little Irish prayer I found, today.
An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
Also, to those of you who voted in my latest poll, my correct age is 20 years old. :-)

Okay, folks...time for another update! Please bear with me as I try to redo my blog. Some of my "fun" things were automatically deleted since I chose this particular background.

More updates coming soon!!!

By now, some of you who have visited are thinking, "How boring! Nothing new!" I'm in TOTAL agreement! Sometimes you just don't know what to post. (Do my fellow bloggers understand my dilemma?) But, I thought I might post some notes taken during our pastor's recent sermon on prayer.
  • Prayer is NOT A demonstration of your righteousness--ever.
  • Prayer is NOT man-centered, nor is it earth bound.
  • Prayer is NOT self-talk
  • Prayer IS a dialogue between you and the Father
  • Prayer IS a communication with the Lord
  • Prayer involves speaking and listening
  • Express thanksgiving during your time of prayer
  • Prayer is an intimate conversation with the Father
  • We may call Him "Abba Father"
  • When in prayer, I need to "shut the door" on everything else
  • When you're in a group and praying, it should be as though you are alone with the Lord, speaking only to Him. Our focus should not be on what they are hearing.
  • Pray on someone's behalf...but talk to the Father
  • God wants to hear you speaking to Him

You can pour out your heart to Him. He already knows...but He still desires to hear from you.
