glimmer...(a post I wrote in January)

The joy that I've been overwhelmed with for the past week has been remarkable. When speaking with one of my friends tonight, I spoke of this joy and explained that it is surmountable for any human to feel on their own... I can only contribute it to the Lord in this time of my life. As I work, learn, play, grow, and fellowship with other people (Christians and those needing Jesus), I patiently share this joy.

The challenge to myself and anyone needing a breath of fresh air (seems crazy--but)- continue to pray for the fresh dose of God's love everyday. Deeper than we can even imagine is a love that is richer and more fulfilling than most things we've ever tasted. The flavor and taste lingers on forever...Christ's blood was responsible for it. The way Christ renewed himself everyday is the very example for us to follow. I know that sometimes the daily tasks of work, school, and chores get so daunting, but there is HOPE....and everlasting joy that comes with the fullness of the Lord.

How far can we take Christ in 2010? Or rather how far can Christ take us? Phil 2:9-11 Every knee will bow and every tongue confess...that Jesus Christ is Lord.

a friday...

after a week of so many happenings, it's hard to believe that i made it through. short-staffed, state reviewed, illness running rampid, ....even forgetting to eat lunch... i just sing praises to the one and only Jesus Christ for the strength that i never have, but he has given to me.

things that made me smile today:
1. well, this was last night, but i wore my hairnet almost half-way home before i realized it. haha. lunch lady hannah for you.
2. found out that one of my staff passed his driving test! woohoo. i am so proud of you!
3. heard that snow is coming
4. wendy lynne is coming in a week to TX!
5. mom and me are spending the day together tomorrow, and that always makes for a better friday.
6. precious james, snuggled up to me as i was staying with him, and he said (as he played his DS), ms hannah, i am so comfy snuggled up under your arm. don't move. and give me more of that blanket.

the Lord is doing great things. please know, that if you are reading this and a believer, you are called to share this love with everyone you meet. if you have not yet, accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior, He died for your very sins, was raised from the dead, and the mystery of his life is that he did it for works/acts/doings will ever be enough. he asks only for us to love, and serve him and share his love with others. may His Word be heard throughout the nations.
