Sweet Scripture Sunday....

As the scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile-----the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him.
Romans 10:11-12

Today I was blessed with the opportunity to attend a baby shower
for one of the girls
who came through the Rescue Mission we ran for many years.
Michelle came to the mission directly from jail.
She came in filled with anger, distrust and addiction.
After spending many months with us Michelle changed.
She put her trust in the Lord and was blessed.....
blessed with peace...
 A Hope for the future........
restoration of family......
and with Baby Hope.

Michelle had Allie (the sweet little blond in the pic above) when she came to the mission.
Due to drugs she was not the Mother she needed to be.
That changed when she found Jesus.
Michelle was also told the odds of her having anymore children
was very little.

But the Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses those who call upon him........
and now there is Hope....
Allie"s new baby sister.

I was also blessed to see a  few more of the girls who went through the mission and
their new little ones too.
God is good.
He does change lives!

Loretta and Landon.
Loretta came in addicted to Meth.
Now she is in College and a new Mother.

This is Samara.
Isn't she beautiful.
Her mother came in to the mission addicted to alcohol.
Her Mother admitted to me today that she still struggled with her addiction.
She knew it was wrong but the desires were still there.
Please pray for her with me.
Her name is Tanya.

Yes, these are just a few of the blessings in my life.
The Lord is indeed Lord of all!
He has truly blessed my life!



Update on Amy:
Prayers are being answered.
Amy is on the mend.
Her lungs are improving and Carolyn told me on Friday evening
they hope to have Amy out of ICU in two weeks
and into Rehab.
She was still heavily sedated.
Allowing her lungs more time to improve.
Another true blessing from the Lord!
Thanks Ladies.....
There is Power in Prayer!


  1. The ladies in your life are beautiful. God can change us when we let him work through us. I am so glad that those lives have been reborn.
    Good news on Amy, too. Several of my gals have commented how she is always on their minds, in their hearts and in their prayers. They can't forget about her. I can't either.
    Blessings to you- Tete

  2. Oh this gives me so much hope for my son. When you go through so many years of disappointments you kind of lose that hope even though your faith is strong. Thank you for sharing all this hope.

  3. God does change lives and it gives me hope for my sons as well. Thank you for being the vessel that God chooses to work through

  4. Oh how wonderful to see changed lives. Drugs have such control over the user and it is so good to hear these stories. Am still praying for Amy and her family. Thanks again Patty.

  5. I love this story! Working with girls like this is something I hope to be able to do one day.

    So sorry to hear about the devestation in your area from the storms recently. I will continue to pray for your community.

    Thanks for the comments about my recent weight loss :)
    It's so hard to get motivated sometimes to do something like this....but I'm more determined than ever to get healthy again.

    God Bless you....have a great week!

  6. I get shivers down my spine when I read of how the Lord can change lives and make everything new!!!! My church has a special ministry to bikers, along with a addiction recovery group, and it is miraculous seeing the change that comes when Christ enters the picture. It must have been wonderful for you to see the "fruit of your labors!"

    Good to hear about Amy! I'll continue to pray for complete healing!

  7. God is truly amazing!
    I will continue to pray for Amy!


  8. God is good! Just to read what He has done in the lives of these girls is so encouraging! And what a blessing you are, Patty!

    I was lying in bed this morning early thinking about Amy and had to come over here and check on her! PTL that there is improvement! Will continue to pray! Thanks for keeping us informed!


  9. Hi Patty,
    Goodness what a wonderful post...it makes your heart smile to see happy faces that once were so troubled and those little ones...how precious.
    Thanks for the information on Amy....God bless her and her family and I'm still praying.
    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  10. Loved hearing about these girls. Will pray for Tanya when I pray for my nephew regarding his drinking. Loved the update on Amy!

    So glad you like the Reese's peanut butter cups that are white chocolate!!!!!

  11. What a wonderful post! Praise God for his goodness.

    Do you know anything about Amy? I'm continuing to pray for her.
