Thankful For Thanksgiving

Standard

thanksgivingHere I sit in my little home overlooking Keyhole reservoir and I am thinking of all the things I am thankful of this year. Honestly it is the first year I can remember that I am thankful to somebody rather than just thankful for things.

My new found faith is changing my perspectives on a lot of things. I am thankful to Jesus for loving me enough to accept me even though I ignored Him for most of my life. I am thankful that He has placed good people around me and that my life is filled with so many good gifts.

I know that we should be thankful every day but I am thankful for thanksgiving because it reminds us to stop and count our blessings. I hope you dear readers will have many thankful moments in the days and years ahead. I am grateful for all the people who have started following this blog already. You guys are great!

All my love,

Some People’s Children

forgiveness lucadoToday was one of those days where I just had to shake my head. We have this family that goes to the church I attend. The mother is 57 and the daughter is 28. The daughter is an only child and as such, she thinks the world revolves around her.

Well today I just watched the interaction between mother and daughter and I had to scratch my head. Here was a daughter that was trying to use emotional blackmail and manipulation on her mom. I guess it just goes to show that no matter if people have faith for a long time or a short time, nobody is perfect. I know I am not.

I am just glad that Jesus came not so we could be perfect, but so we could be forgiven. I will pray for this family and hopefully there will be some healing of the dysfunction that is going on.

All my love,

Lauren

A Sad Day

Hi all,

Yesterday I told you all about my new adventure in faith. Well today I found out that the pastor that I have come to love is moving. I don’t blame him. It has been hard to make a living out here on the Wyoming prairie but I will be sad to see him go. The church is planning a special event for him on his birthday which will actually be his last day at the church.

So I am sad but I also know that God is going to use him at his new church in the bay area. He has had such an influence on thousands of people that it was only a matter of time until God promoted him.

Check out my last post if you want to find out more about him.

All my love,

My New Adventure Begins

Standard

Hi all,

Many of you might have wondered what happened to me. Well I had to take a little hiatus off the beaten track so I could get in touch with my spiritual life. My boyfriend Matt and I ended up in a little town in Wyoming and lo and behold, we found Jesus. So no longer will I be making posts about theatre and blogging and all the stuff I used to blog about. I will be sharing with you my journey that I am embarking on with my new found faith. My Pastor that is helping me with this is Pastor Duke Taber. He owns the website Taber’s Truths. I am sure that if you have any questions about the Christian faith, that he would be more than happy to answer them. I hope you follow along with me as I discover what it truly means to be a Christian.
