1st post of 2012!

Kiddoes just got home from school, first day back and glad to be back on schedule again. I did feel a bit lonely today but no reason for that, I was way to busy for that. I think it’s just the constant back ground noise.

We got Jim sent back on New Year’s day. It was nice to have him home for the week. He took the two big boys skiing one day while I stayed home with the other two. We all got to go to a movie together. A gift from the kid’s aunt gave the boys a gift card for a free movie. We saw ‘War Horse’. It was good and fun to be there with Jim and the boys.

I’ve been really going back over my year the past several day of 2011. My word last year was obedience, I tell you this was the subject for me! Asking the Lord about my 2012,. I think of a sentence for this year and I think I have concluded it to be, “even in my obedience sometimes I have not a enough faith to believe He can do a miracle”. So, I am going to work on this. It is not always what I ‘see’ for He is working on my behalf and I do trust that. So, I choose to continue being obedient and in that be thankful in the midst of it all. I find myself being able to believe or pray on someone else’s behalf way more than on my own situations. I am aware of this like I have not been before,I found myself today starting to cry about a matter in my life and I go to pick up the phone to call a friend so that I don’t have to DEAL with my own. I think it’s a part of being scared that I will not see my prayers come to fruition and I don’t want to be disappointed (again), especially if it is something that I’ve been on my knees about more times than I can count. But, He is faithful  I know this to be true and I will continue to get down on my knees again because He is faithful, this I believe.

Oh, Happy New Year, and may the Lord bless and care for in 2012. He is a God of miracles!

Jenay - Yes He is!!!! He is faithful and we may wait a long time a long time, but He is faithful and it is always worth the wait. Keep up the praying sister you are a warrior…God hears the cry of your heart.

Jen - Oh, yes. I know how it is to believe and pray for someone else but not have the same ability to do so on behalf of myself. Praying for amazing things to come your way, M. You so deserve it!

Brandee Shafer - Someone just recommended _War Horse_ to me. Maybe my mom.

I appreciate your honesty in this post, Marlece. You have such a big heart, and I’m thankful because I know God stuck it in your chest. He’s working in and growing you all the time, and His light shines brightly in you, no matter how many areas of improvement you think you have. You know what I love? I love that God doesn’t change and grow and fix us all at once. Because I think we would just explode. I think our heads would pop off.

God and I love you very, very much.

Gina - Oh Marlece. This hurts my heart.
I know you. I know what you do.
You are such a good friend and a great listener and shoulder to cry on.
I always feel better after talking to you but then I often wonder, “What about you?” Don’t you ever need to talk?
We aren’t meant to do this alone my friend. When you pick up that phone, you need to reach out and share your heart, instead of just allowing all of us to share ours. You are loved.

God IS faithful and so are you. Your desire to be obedient is unmatched. That alone has to count for something.

I know we will see your prayers answered.

Craig - and there is always room for a miracle Marlece. Your Christmas time with all your boys sounds awesome. I’m glad you got the big one back for a while. And so what if your word is a sentence – hang out with it – I know I’m going to have to repeat mine again and again – I think it will be a lot harder than last year’s word. Anyway, thank you for this, I heart reading you, God bless and keep you and all of yours.
