Sweet Sunday Scripture...

Its official!!!
We signed a contract on our home in London...
Now the inspections...
A few weeks ago, I ask several of my sweet Blog Sisters
to pray for our house to sell..
At the same time, my hubby had ask
 several others to be praying.
Agreement in Prayer is a Powerful Thing!!!

Sweet Sunday Scripture....

I love to plant in unusual things....
 planting succulents in old shoes or boots
is one of my fave things to do...
They grow so well...
Are easy to take care of.....
and are just plain adorable....

Sweet Sunday Scripture....

I know many of you have heard the old saying,
" A day late and a dollar short".
Well, here it is Monday and I am posting my "Sweet Sunday Scripture".
How is that for a day late?
Sometimes we get so caught up in the
"busy-ness" of the day....
We find the day is over.
We did not get to do
the things we really wanted to
or needed to.....

Sweet Sunday Scripture.....

 "When Pigs Fly!"

Throughout my home and yard
I have several of these cute little "winged" pigs....
They are just to cute......
(happy face)

They are a constant reminder to me of just the opposite
of what the phrase "When pigs fly" means.....
The phrase, "when pigs fly"
is thought to come from an old Scottish proverb in the sixteenth century.
It is a way of saying that something will never happen.
 My little "winged pigs" help remind me
that the impossible can happen!.....
 The Bible tells us......
There are two different instances in the book of Mark where
Jesus reminds us of this very thing.....

Mark 9:23 ESV

And Jesus said to him,
“‘If you can’!
All things are possible for one who believes.” 
In Mark 9:14-29..
Jesus is asked by a desperate father whose son is possessed by a Demon,
vs 22;"if you he can do anything to help, take pity upon us and help us"

Mark 10:27 ESV

Jesus looked at them and said,
“With man it is impossible,
but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”
This is the story of the Rich Young Man who wants to follow Jesus
but chooses his riches over following Jesus...
The disciples question Jesus about salvation.....
"who then can be saved?"  vs 26
Jesus answers in verse 27:

Jesus looked at them and said,
“With man it is impossible,
but not with God.
For all things are possible with God.”
Both of these verses refer to "faith"

our faith......
Jesus words do not mean we can automatically get anything we want
if we just think positive....
Jesus meant anything is possible if we believe!
We cannot have everything we pray for as if prayer is magic....
but with faith,
We can have everything we need to serve Him!
The attitude of trust and confidence that the Bible calls
belief and faith
Is not something we can obtain without help.
Faith is a gift from God ( Ephesians 2:8-9)
No matter how much faith we have,
we never reach the point of being self-sufficient.
Faith is not stored away like money in the bank...
Growing faith is a constant process of daily renewing
our trust in Jesus!
Sitting just a few flowers over from my "winged" pig
sits an ordinary little fat pink pig..
a true reminder that pigs do not fly!
God can do whatever He wants in the life
of someone who truly believes!
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see,"
Hebrews 11:1 NIV
Excited to see what God is up to in my life!
Trusting Him to work things out!!
Sunday Blessings!

Happy Fourth of July!!!!!

This is the flag that was draped over my brother's coffin
when he was killed in the Vietnam War in 1970.
My Mother gave it to me before she passed.
This is something I will always cherish...
Even though I was young,
I will never forget the day
 they handed the flag all folded over to my Mother..
As a nation, we should never take for granted the price
 paid so that we may experience freedom..
Thanks to all who serve our country!!!
My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died!
Land of the Pilgrim's pride!
From every mountain side,
Let freedom ring!
We are truly blessed!!
Red, White and Blue Blessings to you!
