Dear Lord

You are so incredibly awesome.  And I feel horrible for feeling like this.  For allowing envy to have any place in my life when You have provided so much.  Thank you so much for providing the house that we need and want.  I know that you will provide a way for all of our other needs to be met.

Father God, thank you for bringing this baby safely into the world.  Thank you for keeping her mommy safe too.   I pray that she will be a blessing to all who know her and that she will know her older siblings.

Lord, please remove this hurt and jealousy.  I want another baby of my own so badly.  I want to be a wife again.  I want to be a help meet and I want my children to have a real daddy.  And, God, it hurts so much to watch somebody else with the life that I had.

I don’t want to influence anybody negatively.  I understand and encourage his family to support him and get to know her…but, sometimes, it is still painful.

Lord, right now I am reminded of Your Word.  2 Corinthians 12:9 says “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

Thank you, Father.  Thank you for seeing me and meeting me where I am.  Thank you for allowing me to be weak so that You can be strong.  Lord, I pray now that Your grace would be sufficient.

In Your Name – Amen!

So, this isn’t going anywhere fast. But, I’m not giving up. I’m hoping inspiration will strike soon.

Hello

Have you ever had one of those weeks where life is just a struggle. I am there. I struggle with being single, so much more than most people would ever know. I know in my heart, deep down inside, that I was made to be a help-meet. I want to share my life with someone and to be a blessing to someone. It is my desire and the way God made me. I just need to find the right Christ-centered guy to lead me.

I am blessed to know an older couple at church who provide me with hope that I will find that special someone. For simplicity, I will call the man K and the woman J. J was left a widow with three small boys and K came along, married her, and became a father to these boys (who are now old enough to be my father) and they had a son of their own. I was still married when I heard their testimony and, I think my first reaction at the time was, “Ahhh, how cute!” But now, whenever I see them, I can’t help but think about what God did for her. I love listening to K talk about his walk with God, and he is exactly the kind of man that I am praying will come to lead me.

Is there something that you are struggling with? Leave me a comment, and I would be blessed to pray for you.

I just wanted to drop by and say that I haven’t forgotten my poor blog. I am carefully and prayerfully considering what my next post should be about. I want to offer wisdom and insight, but I don’t feel very wise right now. Maybe, God is calling me into a period of rest, after which I will be able to think more clearly. For now…May God bless you and keep you, May God shine His face upon you and be gracious unto you. May the light of His countenance be upon you. And May He shield you in the palm of his hand! Happy New Year!

You can call me Sasha.  Its the nickname my dad gave me when I was little.   I am a single-stay @ home mom, not by choice but because its the kind of thing our courts allow to happen.  I homeschool my 3 kids (we’ll call them Pookie, Bubba, and Woogie), am an independent contractor for “The Old Schoolhouse” Magazine, and am working on becoming an IBO (Independent Business Owner) with Amway Global.

I love God!  I love all that He has done for me.  I am constantly amazed at the ways in which He provides for me and the kids.  Sending His Son, Jesus, to die for me was more than enough, but His blessings continue.  I currently live with my mom.  We work to help each other and this has removed a lot of my stress.  Amazingly, we are able to live together in peace…most of the time.  I have met the most wonderful man who loves me and my kids and is working to move closer to us so that we can work on building a life together.  My bills get paid, food is on the table, my kids are healthy, my friends are awesome, and I have peace.

That is the jist of the who…now on to the what and why!

My friends keep telling me that I should write a blog.  And I’ve tried before but it just didn’t stick.  I really had no purpose in writing.  But, I think that I’ve stumbled on one.  Titus 2:3-5 gives us a good start.  It says:

“The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things–that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.”

That’s it!  That’s what I want to do.  What I have felt the call on my heart to be-first to the young women in my church, and now to all of you.  (I hope there will be a you out there reading this).  I am by no means an old woman, but I am one who has searched the scriptures and is trying to build my life on these principles.  I don’t profess to have all the answers.  But I know what I have been taught, what has worked for me, and what I feel sure will work for you.

I will probably refer to several books other than the Bible that I have found helpful.  They are “Created To Be His Help Meet” by Debi Pearl, “Wild at Hear” by John Eldridge, and “Love and Respect” by Emerson Eggerichs.  I will post links to them later.

So…let’s see where this takes us!

God Bless
