I love hunting!
So I decided to make this thing called a tent blind a little more me.

I sat one day for hours, reading and thinking.
I love scripture, it gets me through a lot of my days.
So that's what I did. I wrote some of my favorite
verses ALL OVER my tent,on the inside of course.
So that way while I am waiting for the deer, I can read the Word.
I love sitting out there alone for hours just visiting with God.
It is so peaceful and addicting!
I'll be adding on soon. Enjoy the pictures.

He loves making faces in my pictures, he doesn't think I will post them.
He was wrong.Happy hunting. If you can't find me that's where I am!

Vacation and God's Plan

Last week I decided to go ahead and take vacation this week. I had one friend having surgery and I could go out and help her a day or two when she got home. That was my plan.It didn't happen Then On Thursday(yesterday) I would head off to my walk to emmaus trip til Sunday.That was the plan. It didn't happen either.

My granny who lives next door to me got very ill Friday(last week). Called the ambulance, went to ER, had test ran. She needs BLOOD, and has a UTI. Staying the night in the Hospital .That was the plan. Well test results come back, sending her to heart hosp. in Lubbock. WHAT ! NOT THE PLAN. Get there and waiiittttttt.

Not her heart at all, it's a GI problem. Bleeding ulcers in tummy.Give blood, meds and some rest and on Tuesday(this week ) we are home ,but granny still weak and HOW could I go off for four days when I am her caregiver. I can't......So God always has a plan.......He knows when it is my turn for  the  walk . I am thrilled I can take care of granny and she is doing great. I am blessed and God is teaching me patience's and faith all in one.Hard test to pass but He assured me I could pass it. I am also blessed to have the friends I do. They have called, came by, send notes,texts,FB, and brought me dinner. I am so loved, and I so love each of them. THANK YOU SWEET GIRLS!!!

So Thursday (yesterday) I got to spend the morning 4:30am in a deer blind FREEZING with the hubby who was in his own blind, got back to see about granny, rested, had lunch with the girls, saw them off to the walk. Then rechecked on granny and headed to the deer blind again for the evening.

The hunting is a blast for me because I get to spend hours being still and with the LORD. I will take pictures of the inside of my blind. It has scripture written all over it. I take my Bible study and really get time with God, and just talking with Him......so peaceful.

Anyhoo there is my vacation week.I would not trade any of it for anything. God is good

And He is Faithful.... 1 Corinthians 1:9

Do you not know that . . . you are not your own? —1 Corinthians 6:19

There is no such thing as a private life, or a place to hide in this world, for a man or woman who is intimately aware of and shares in the sufferings of Jesus Christ. God divides the private life of His saints and makes it a highway for the world on one hand and for Himself on the other. No human being can stand that unless he is identified with Jesus Christ. We are not sanctified for ourselves. We are called into intimacy with the gospel, and things happen that appear to have nothing to do with us. But God is getting us into fellowship with Himself. Let Him have His way. If you refuse, you will be of no value to God in His redemptive work in the world, but will be a hindrance and a stumbling block.

The first thing God does is get us grounded on strong reality and truth. He does this until our cares for ourselves individually have been brought into submission to His way for the purpose of His redemption. Why shouldn’t we experience heartbreak? Through those doorways God is opening up ways of fellowship with His Son. Most of us collapse at the first grip of pain. We sit down at the door of God’s purpose and enter a slow death through self-pity. And all the so-called Christian sympathy of others helps us to our deathbed. But God will not. He comes with the grip of the pierced hand of His Son, as if to say, “Enter into fellowship with Me; arise and shine.” If God can accomplish His purposes in this world through a broken heart, then why not thank Him for breaking yours?
