A lazy posting :( What a title...

Ladies
First forgive me for not being online and blogging. I have had so much happen to me..not all good but it happens. I lost my job..but God is good..my unemployment is as much as I made!! I always need prayer for things and right now it is for getting my act together. I have a web site that deals with artists www.discoveredartists.com/donnasfineart hope you like it. It has as many art paintings on it as I could put. Funny..I seemed to always post when I didn't have time and when I have time I don't post?! Go figure? I think it is the part of us that gets a little down when we loose a job. We just can't seem to make it back right away...we sit and ponder, we tell ourselves, "Okay God, I know I have to read but I'm just gonna watch a little TV now, ya know I never did before?" Then the days go on and on and on, and then you have no excuse except being lazy. You find yourself in your PJ's until 1pm. You find yourself watching soap operas more than usual. Internet surfing and facebooking becomes addicting...then you realize..God is starting to be the least one you run to!!

WHY! I don't know, I don't have the answers and yet it continues. I decided to go back and start posting. I decided the ones that read my posts were always the ones who built me up, helped me seek and knew that the only way was JESUS!! I kept every posting in my journal while I was working, I read every scripture and every daily while I was working..and now..it's hard...I don't want it hard I want to run to the "Father" I want to place my trust back where it was.

So we join as one again. We remain in the faith as one again...and pray together as one again..if not then we can't call ourselves "sisters in the Lord", right? I wrote good blogs and I want to continue. Help me to do that!!

I found this in my daily but I think it helps me today " Be thankful for quiet days, when nothing special seems to be happening. Instead of being bored by the lack of action, use times of routine to seek my face. You are richly blessed when you walk trustly with Me through the routines of your day." Psalm 105:4 and Colossians 3:23

I love you all!

Donna, It's so good (smile) to hear from you. I think of you often and pray for you. I'm so sorry you lost your job. It's seems there's a lot of that going around. I'm so thankful that I quit work when I did and got on disability and then SS when I was 65. My husband applied for SS about 2 years ago and partially retired. He's still working with pianos but it's nothing like it use to be. In hard times people don't need pianos. God has been so faithful to us.

Donna, whatever you do don't turn your back on God. I do believe we are living in the last days and you certainly don't want to miss Heaven. You may have strayed but I can promise you He has never left your side. Just call out to Him, put yourself in His hands and trust Him completely. He said He would never leave us nor forsake us but go with us even to the end of the world.

I use to keep up with a lot of the soaps and after I quit I was down to two. One day it dawned on me that nothing good ever came of anything. When I read a book I want it to end happy, but those programs would never survive if they did that so I just quit watching them.

I can't say that I am a "perfect" Christian because I'm not but it's a daily walk with Him. Of course you know all this. You know what He can do for you because you've been there before.

I haven't had a lot of comments the last two weeks but I realized one day that last week and this week are probably spring breaks and are taking advantage of them.

Please keep me posted and let me know how your doing. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers.
We are sisters in Christ so don't hold back. I will also go and look at your new site but realize the state our economy is in and don't be discouraged if people don't buy. I remember you writing at Christmas and telling us how good God was to you and your family.

Don't let the enemy still your love for Jesus away from you. Take a firm stand against him and tell him "outloud" so he can hear you that you belong to Jesus and he has no authority ove you "in the name of Jesus."
I love you,
AliceE.

PS We are leaving sometime tomorrow to go to my daughter's at Virginia Beach. Our grandchildren are with her this week and we're going to bring them home so their parents won't have to go. Hopefully, I'll have access to a computer but if you don't hear from me it's because I don't. I will contact you again when I can but don't hesitate to continue writing.

Hey, pal! I was so glad to hear from you!!! Blogging is good-you will get a lot of support, and friends on the Web are so wonderful. I am not always reliable about checking my blog, updating it and reading and commenting, but I do my best. I'll tell you another thing-my friends are on my mind, in my heart, and in my prayers.
Your work is wonderful. I'm sorry you lost your job. I pray things will look up for you soon.
I'm going to look at your other site now.
Much love to you, Debra

Praying for ya Donna. I have not been on blogs much lately...seems like since prior to the election things changed...spent some time on facebook...then team sarah and other social sites...then twitter...time to get back in the Word...R you still attending Charles Stanly's church? He seems like a good man with a good solid foundation.
Father I pray for my friend Donna
I ask that you give her peace and that your Holy Spirit will draw her to your word and that she will be well fed and satisfied in your word. I ask that your word would speak to her and direct her in all her ways. I ask that you grant her family favor and blessings. that all their needs will be met in you. I ask this in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
