BLESSED!

This week, the fingerprint is you.
YOU!

As I look around to see where I can see God's fingerprints,
it isn't about ME!

It is about my children,

their children,

and God's plan for us.
With His guidance we have been able to grow in His Glory.
Most of what we have is really just stuff,
temporary things that can be taken away in a blink of an eye.
But our children and grandchildren are PERMANENT.
It is because of HIm and
His trust in us to raise them in His honor.
When ever things became so overwhelming,
it was the GRACE of God that got us through.

'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you..'

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.

Could this be true for Haiti?

To get something they never had, they now have to go through something they never would have and IT WILL open up their hearts and hands to receive something better. Better housing, better awarenss, better belief in God!

It really didn't take the Haiti earthquake for me to realize how BLESSED I am.

God BLESSED me with the love of a good man.
God BLESSED us with the birth of our first daughter, healthy and precious.
God BLESSED us with healthy twins when we didn't know they were coming into our lives.
God BLESSED us as our JOURNEY had rough and rugged roads. Without Him we wouldn't be where we are, who we are, or have what we have.
God BLESSED us with grandchildren who fill our hearts with so much joy.

I am BLESSED to be able to order 2 of these neckless's




You to can support the people of Haiti.
Join Beki at The Rusted Chain and in what ever way you can, support her and others, doing what God plans for us to do, GIVE in His name.

Matthew 5:1-12


"The Beatitudes

1Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2and he began to teach them saying:

3"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

5Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

7Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

8Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
