Today, I'm going to be maltitasking a lot, wait that's normal for me. I'm trying to figure out some idea's for a fundraiser to raise the mission money to go to Korah. Since Travis is going also we decided to raise the money together and decided we would have a softball game. Now I need players and the rest of the details. Like team names, a cool name for my fundraiser, any ideas?

I have been doing the Generational Blessings Bible Study ~ WOW!

Keep praying for me because I have been going back into the generations and have found things that I never knew, things I have forgotton about, some things that have always been with me that I wish was not. However, I do not have a time machine to go back and fix the ugly stuff and more importanly God is in Control. He made me who I am for a reason, I can honestly say I have found The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!

This is a verse we talked about in our small group...

"See, the former things have taken place, and the new things I declare;

before they spring into being I announce them to you." Isaiah 42:9

"Life is not a race - but indeed a journey. Be Honest. Work Hard. Be Choosy. Say "thank you", and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given, it is not accidental ~ search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you inspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself ~ Plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment." ~ Bonnie Mohr

"One hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, how much money I had in my bank account, or what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child." ~ Unknown

Well its official I finally filled out my application to go to Korah. I'm very excited to be answering God's call and going with such a great team. And I will get to meet Melkameye, I can honestly say I can't wait to hug her and welcome her and the other girls we have sponsored to our family. I already love all the girls however there is something about her that I can't seem to get out of my mind. I wonder daily if she's ok and what she's doing. Please keep all of God's precious children in your prayers.
