Sunday Musings!

It is less than a week before Thanksgiving and I am forever grateful to God above for my life, my family, the call He placed on my life and my church family and my friends. As I sit here in my room in Uganda reflecting on the last year, which has flown by, I feel so blessed and priveledged. I am, TOMMORROW exactly 1 year from my 50th birthday. Hmmm!!! I guess I could look at it differently. But, truthfully it is overwhelming to me, I have been on this planet that long. Thank you God for loving me and giving me life. Thank you for your many blessings. Thank you for the children I help here, keep well and work cooperatively to find good homes. Thank you for strong, Christian leadership and fellow missionaries who all share the same boss. Bless you my dear ones and May He who gives life, give you grace and peace and abundant blessings from above.
By the way..... Happy Birthday to my Grandaughter Sabrina Harley Rose who today is 13.

Dog Day Afternoon

Today was an extremely hot day. We all felt it strongly. Even Ebony, who took advantage of a few moments when the kids were not using the wagons. She thought she would take a time out and rest. The kids were out on the front lawn playing and I was playing catch up on paper work in the clinic. Kids were having fun even without the wagons!!!!

He's Got the Power

Once again I am reminded of the power and Love of God Amighty. Amazingly, since I arrived back in Uganda, the electricity has been on pretty much the entire time. That is...until today. I was somewhat frustrated as everyone around me had power except two of Calvary Chapel's buildings on their compound. We share the same line between us.
After a frustrating several phone calls by me and the director of Calvary Chapel, the power was restored around 7:30 pm tonight.
I guess I seem to forget I am in a third world country serving the Master. Must I always need a reminder???? Anyway, I felt the power of His presence all day and that more than made up for it.

One Nation Under God

Dear Ones;
The election of the century is behind us by one day and even in Uganda, we are reeling from the results. But I want to encourage you as I feel encouraged. Remember..."For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armour of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to STAND FIRM!!!!! Ephesians 6:12,13
Our country has chosen, God has allowed our choices to dictate our nation. Now, more than ever we must stand for good under any circumstance. God will not be mocked. He is in control and He alone is our supreme authority. Remember to give HIM praise and give HIM the glory and honor due. He will see this through. I love you all so much and pray that God will reveal to all of us His plan and give us peace to endure the coming days. BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY!!!!
