Hey everyone! It has been a really long time! God is really good. He is always there for us and surprises us with answered prayers in unexpected ways. I am so thankful that I can be called a child of God!

The other day I was memorizing one of my scriptures, Phillipans 4:7 "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Jesus Christ." It made me start thinking about understanding. I can't tell you how many times I have thought I understood something, and really didn't. Or that I tried to "act" like I understood, when really I had no clue. If we all depended on my understanding, we would be in big trouble!! I am so glad that is not the case, and I'm sure you are too. : )

It's just amazing to think that God understands everything, from the complexities of the galaxies to the desires of our heart. He is so amazing and always working things out for the good of those who love him. Especially when we have a situation that we "think" we know how God should handle it but then He works it out in a completely different way that is so much better than our human understanding can comprehend. It happens all the time and hopefully, in our fast pace world, we recognize God's hand moving in our favor.

As we all get ready for the holiday season, please just take time to remember the real reason for the season, Jesus. He was born into this world so we could have life and have it more abundantly and I am beyond grateful for that!!

P.S. I just wanted to let everyone know that I just submitted my 24th memory verse for this year!!! I am really excited that I have perservered! To be completely honest, I can't recite every scripture from memory. There are a few I have trouble remembering the chapter and verse number. But I am human, and God knows that I am trying and I am thankful for that!

"Nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37 NIV
