BLESSED and FORGIVEN Friday September 7th

God is so good and amazing ALL the TIME.
I think He somehow honored my turnaround yesterday (not the cussing - we are still in discussions about this) He used that low time for me to submit -- to give up my cross, so to speak -- and then when I did (i am a little slow - it took me most of the day) He blessed me with such an AMAZING - OUT of SIGHT day today!

  • Tonya brought me a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and we had a wonderful visit
  • I enjoyed lunch with my mother in law (and dessert)
  • I delivered 3 Pencil bouquets to teachers/employees at the school (i was blessed by their appreciation)
  • A friend (Lisa) brought dinner over for my family
  • Heath got off ON TIME and we all enjoyed dinner as a family (i don't know when we did that last)
  • Heather stopped by for a visit
  • Nicole came and hung out with me this evening
It was an AWESOME (and tiring) DAY!

The point is God knows I am going to mess up - I am going to fall down - but the BEST part of the story is - I AM FORGIVEN and LOVED anyway

so today I am felling blessed and forgiven - and though I am not worthy, I don't deserve it, I DIDN'T EARN IT - He has poured out HIS MERCY and HIS GRACE again and again -

Shawnna, I just wanted you to know that I will be praying with you. Just remember that it does not matter what you can see with the human eye, it is your faith that is important. I praise God for letting you find out early on, so you can be healed!
I am new to the whole blogging thing and have been getting inspiration from many different blogs, including yours, so thank you. If you have a minute, pop over to and tell me what you think. Thank you!
