Hello again.


I have been one little busy bee. I can't even remember what I blogged about last, other than the "Praying for Their Footsteps."

So I'll just start somewhere. We went to the beach with my mother and father in law the first week of June. I meant to post some pics, but posted them to my facebook instead. I'll try to post a couple on here as well. We had a great time.

Last week, we had Vacation Bible School at our church. I taught the 2's and 3's. This is my third year to teach that class, AND I teach it every other Sunday at church, so I am kinda comfortable teaching this age now. I know to expect the crying, the potential potty accidents, and all of that fun stuff. Princess was in my class. We had a lot of fun. It was Thursday when she finally came out of her shell as she tends to be quiet and reserved at church around "new" kids. Thursday was also the day when all of our missions team prayed specifically for Princess. Wow! Prayer is awesome, because that was an awesome Princess day! ;) I had a max of 11 kids and a min of 9 kids. I co-taught, and we had a teenage helper. I really loved being around the kids. Even though I was busy teaching and managing them, I was really able to enjoy them this year too. I'm not sure my enjoyment showed, but I did nevertheless. :)

Friday evening, I got to Ross Bridge for a girl's night away from home. Actually most of the girl's spent a weekend away. I stayed until very late on Saturday night, so it was almost a whole weekend away. I had so much fun getting to know these women better and just chilling and laughing and talking and listening, and especially playing in the pool and sliding. I am so much more comfortable being me as an adult - how I pray that Princess will not be as awkward as I always was. She is so much like me at times. I was very tired today after VBS and since I had very little sleep from the weekend, but I am so glad that I went with the girls.

Princess is doing much better physically, and I am very excited about that. We go to the doctor again on Thursday.

On another note, I will be having a biopsy on Friday, so please keep me in prayer.

We are also trying to get busy preparing for our mission trip which is quickly approaching. We are so excited!!

I am doing the Summer Siesta Bible study, and I have formed a small group. Please let me know if you are in any way interested in joining us!! It starts on Thursday the 25th, and we will meet every other week for a total of 4 times.

ALSO, we are without air conditioning, and we have been for almost 2 weeks now!! Hopefully it will be back on soon.

Summer is VERY busy, so I don't know how well I will do with blogging, because we are on the run a lot, but I will attempt to write some more thoughts soon.


  1. Hi Jamie,

    I just wanted to let you know that I nominated your blog for the Kreativ Blog Award. Stop by my blog to copy and paste the blog image and follow the instruction for this award if you chose to accept it.

    Your friend in Him,

  2. Delighted to meet you! Found your blog via the award that you won. Glad I stopped by, splashin' around a bit. Look forward to getting to know you more.

    Hugs from Costa Rica,

  3. You had asked me about the source for "proud vs broken people" - I am just not sure of the original source. I heard it from a man named Paul Smith - a pastor in Florida. He quoted 2 books that he got information from and I can't remember the name of the one! I will try to email and see if I can come up with a source for us both :)

  4. I received an email back from Paul and this is what he said:
    "It has been a few years since I came a crossed this in a journal article in Spirit of Revival by Life Action Revival Ministries; so I am not sure who wrote the article it was in; but if you gave credit to Life Action Revival Ministries, I know that is where it originated. To this day it is still one of the best heart tools to inventory my heart I have come across."
    Hope this helps.


I love to receive your thoughts. I am blessed and encouraged by them. May God bless your day today!
