My friend Kathy sent this to me in an email, please join me in prayer for our troops.



Prayer request .
According to the weather reports, it is our understanding that it is 122 degrees in Iraq right now — and the low will be 111! Our troops need our prayers for strength, endurance, and safety.. If it be God’s will, give these men and women the strength they need to prevail.
I am sorry, but I am not breaking this one……Let us pray.
Prayer chain for our Military..please don’t break it….
Please send this on after a short prayer..


‘Lord, please hold our troops in your loving hands.. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.’

Prayer Request: When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops around the world..
There is nothing attached… . Just send this to all the people in your address book. Do not let it stop with you, please…..Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine & others deployed in harm’s way, Prayer is the very best one!

June Pay It Forward winners

Okay, my June Pay It Forward giveaway ended at 5pm this evening so Random.Org picked my winners and they are:

God’s Creative Power For Healing Winners:

Camille, Kendra and Ray

God’s Creative Power For Finances Winner:


I will be contacting each of the winners via email.  I will post a July PIF after the 4th.  Be sure to head over to Overwhelmed With Joy to check out other book giveaways.

I’ll leave you with this last thing, I am currently reading, image The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey and I feel it is a must read for everyone.  He looks deeply at all the the stereotypes and the scriptures and reveals a Jesus that will challenge your current image of Him.

What do Jews believe About The Bible?

For the past year or so, I have been been seeking a deeper understanding of Jesus, or Yeshua as He is referred to in Hebrew.  This led me to an organization called International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.

I have been supporting Rabbi Eckstein and his program On Wings of Eagles which helps Jews make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) from the former Soviet Union, Ethiopia, India, Europe, Arab Lands and other regions, and helps them with their klitah (resettlement) needs once they arrive in the Holy Land.

I receive regular updates and newsletters from IFCJ and Rabbi Eckstein has begun a five part series on, What Do Jews Believe About The Bible?  I look forward to reading this series and invite you to visit the site and read along with me.

Works For Me Wednesday – Tissue round-up




I know, it’s not cold and flu season, but allergy sufferers like me know the signs of a flare-up; tissues on the nightstand, on the desk, in your pockets, handbag, the car, next to you on the couch…

The worst part is having to round them up – no one wants to touch them after they’ve been used  – especially me, and they start to pile up and go renegade on ya and fly around when the fan blows your way.

Well, I’ve come up with a solution that helps to keep the tissues in a neat and tidy pile and makes clean up a breeze.  Plus I think it’s more sanitary.

I keep a ziploc sandwich baggie in the car, my handbag, my nightstand, and anywhere I’m using the tissues.  I even tuck a few inside the tissue box.  Then, when I use a tissue, I simply place it in the bag.  When the bag is full I toss it out.  No more tissues all over the place, no more grossing out the family members, no more used tissues in my pants pockets (helps out a lot at laundry time) floating around in my handbag or covering the entire surface of my nightstand.  Now when you have a roaring cold and can go through a box of tissues in just a few hours, you may want to use a larger ziploc bag.  I know it’s not the most “green” thing to do, and if using a ziploc bag bothers you, use a brown paper lunch bag.  Or, you can always dump the tissues in the trash and toss the ziploc bag in your recyclable trash – that’s what I do.

Anyway, that’s what works for me.  Head over to Rocks In My Dryer for more WFMW ideas.

Soul Harvest – New Designs



A few weeks ago I wrote about a new Christian business called Soul Harvest.  I was so excited when I learned the owner designed a T-shirt after Laminin (I posted a Godtube video about this), the “glue” that holds us together, so I ordered it.  I also ordered a T-shirt that was inspired by the movie, ‘Expelled’, by Ben Stein (I wrote about this too).  I got my T-shirts today, and I am really pleased with their quality and the fit.  I’ll take a few photos and post them

I received an email from RW, the owner of Soul Harvest to let me know of some new designs called Cotton Glow, and thought you’d like to check them out.  You can also check out his other designs by clicking on the icons below, or just head over to Soul Harvest’s home page by clicking HERE!

To me, Soul Harvest is more than just an apparel company.  RW’s designs are spreading the Word of God.  I find that sometimes witnessing to people is difficult, so now I can let my clothing do the talking and if someone wants to ask me about the message I can take it from there.

Oh, and to help promote RW’s designs there’s going to be a giveaway so make sure you check back soon, or subscribe to my blog via Email or RSS for more details!
