October 19th -- Finally Brethren...

Having one of those kinds of weeks...  

Hello Friends!

So, this week's been interesting. I'm beyond ready for the election to be over so there can be at least a semblance of civility again AND I got some bad news that made me realize I still have a ways to go with my prayer life. Don't know about you but when things are going ok, I can pray easily. When things matter, however, my brain freezes and I have to count on Romans 8:26-28.

So! Really quick before I start piling on the memes and encouraging bible verses... let's discuss this week's POTLUCK! @ Birmingham 1st SDA @ 6:30pm. Since the "main event" is the bible study, we will have a Tailgating themed feast! Pretend it's the Superbowl and bring whatever you'd bring to a get together with friends. This can include:
Chips & Dips
Hummus/Peanut Butter & veggies
Drinks & cups
Little sandwiches
Fake meatballs
Vegan Rotel 
Fruit and/or Salad
Little plates, napkins, forks
Whatever you'd like, really.

We will start the bible study @ 7:30pm. Seriously :)

Best scriptures I've read this week:  Philippians 4:4-14 and Romans 8 especially verses 18-38

Always be glad because of the Lord! I will say it again: Be glad. Always be gentle with others. The Lord will soon be here. Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.
Finally, my friends, keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper. Don’t ever stop thinking about what is truly worthwhile and worthy of praise.  You know the teachings I gave you, and you know what you heard e say and saw me do. So follow my example. And God, who gives peace, will be with you.

In certain ways we are weak, but the Spirit is here to help us. For example, when we don’t know what to pray for, the Spirit prays for us in ways that cannot be put into words. All of our thoughts are known to God. He can understand what is in the mind of the Spirit, as the Spirit prays for God’s people. We know that God is always at work for the good of everyone who loves Him. They are the ones God has chosen for His purpose for them.

Finally bredrin... some funny stuff. Love and the Christian dating experience-- through memes.

Remember those days.... oh the horrors :)
Kinda lame, right?
Tsk, tsk... Letter to my younger self:  Shame on you.
So, then the girl gets serious about Jesus and...
... BOOM! She meets her match!
Feel free to come to FNF and make jokes about this post if you'd like :) See you Friday. God bless!
