A positive thread, the rant thread can bring on lots of negative energy so lets bring on that positive energy, do you have a random praise?

Mine is I LOVE my husband more then life itself, and God has put a burning love for him on me today, more so then normal and I love him so much and want to let him know without words how much I love and appreciate him. He is so supportive of things I do, like running CG, he is so supportive of me wanting to go back to school, and he is always telling me how great I am at the things I'm passionate about.

That's great Mel and really good idea on this thread!

God loves me even when I feel like I do today. (grrrrr day) :(

Yay :)

Oh well since you mentioned your husband, I automatically thought about how great my husband is too, LOL. And it's so important I never take him for granted because I've been in a bad marriage in the past, and now I'm in a good marriage, and the difference between my life now and my life then because of my marvelous husband is something I should be thankful for for the rest of my days.

I have never been one to believe in "soul mates" but I do sometimes think he must have been a person who was created just for me.

Thank you for offering the counterpart for the thread I started last night! =) (Sorry I didn't open one like this at the same time, would have been a better balance!)

I am in a GOOD PLACE right now!!!! I have been suffering with a crippling depression, and in the last week is has improved GREATLY! I've been...happy! I've had joy! And it's not just situational, it's very real! It's remained even in stressful or should-be-depressing times. I'm affected negatively by those things, but it doesn't send me into the tailspin that it would have even a week ago. And it is absolutely, un-questionably God's doing. He is so Good!!!

God laid something on my heart just a few moments ago, and it was pretty much something I just discovered about myself, its really a great thing. I have a passion for women, a passion to help women, when I can. When I see women struggling with things I've struggled with, it effects me in away that not many people get effected. Its a very strong passion.

So thankful for my best friend, for her love and care and concern about me. Never thought I would find someone who totally, so totally understood me. I never did find that friend, but God found her for me. And God is just awesome. God is awesome anyway, but it's an extra special blessing in my life right now.

Praising God for my husband too, despite our troubles this week he still loves me and he is so passive and longsuffering, not to mention loving and caring all at the same time.

My mom called and said she had a dresser for Seth if we wanted it. We been stressed because he has been using the same plastic crappy looking dresser thing for like ever, since 2005 when we lost his dresser in the storm.

Well mom got a new dresser for Shay's room well bedroom suit, and is giving this to us :D YAY!

I'm truly thankful to the people who helped me escape my horrible life from years ago. Truly thankful. It couldn't have been done with pleasantries and prayers. It couldn't have been done with with silent resolve. It couldn't have been done with hope and wishful thinking. I had to be done with a kick in the rear and a slap to the face, and that's just the way it is. Sound awful? It was. But not everything hard is bad. Not everything negative is cruel. What was worse, was living in a world of my own that I couldn't escape.

Truly thankful.



... Also, I'm feeling very positive about spirituality lately, and that's awesome :)

I'm thankful my son's crib was recalled! LOL Seriously, we were gonna need bunk beds for the boys. DS1's crib/toddler bed combo was recalled and the store gave us store credit of a 1/3 more than we paid for the thing and with that credit we purchased some bunk beds and only had to pay $10 after applying the credit.

It's worth it, I had no idea what caffeine was really doing to me until now. I'm even more awake mid-day too I know that sounds weird that dropping caffeine has made me MORE awake, but it's true, I'm more alert all-day rather than only briefly alert at points in the day.

I completely agree! When I'm having a hard day, I meet my husband for lunch at the beach and it really helps to calm me.

I'm thankful that today, God handled the crisis, and all I had to do was the legwork. One more fire put out. They can keep starting them, but God'll keep putting them out. :)

Happy that my mom had a better day at her new job. She quit a 10 year job in June, and this is the first job since. It's a temporary gig at a busy university bookstore for the start of the school year... for 2, maybe 3 weeks.

She did receiving yesterday in the stock room and it was very stressful.
Today she had cash training, and she has sales and retail experience so it went well, and she was asked to work an extra day because of it.

I just got the monthly numbers in (for work). Every time I think the company is slowing down, I'm constantly surprised to see that we are doing better than ever! We are holding steady month to month, and we're outputting more than almost any other year recorded back to 2003 (which is how far back my records take me at the moment). We have weathered the whole recession like pros. SO thankful for my job. <3

Ok weirdest thing ever to be thankful for, but: I'm thankful for my bills.

I love paying off my bills every month, I do them all in one day on the first payday we have in that month, I knock them all out in one swoop, and I think it feels AWESOME. I love being square and even with everything, and I know each month I have enough money to cover everything.

Some people fear bills every month, but I don't have to fear them, and I am very thankful for that. It reminds me not to take things like this for granted, because there were times in my life where I couldn't meet my bills each month, and that was scary.

Melly
09-11-2009, 12:09 AM
Lynn, I do not think that is weird at all.. I can see how we should be thankful for them, without our bills, that would say we don't have things. I can say I'm thankful for my bills, I am, I just hate forking out the money LOL... But I love my things :D ....

LOL. I remember way back when my hubby and I first got together and we were so poor and broke, and I dreaded the bill every month cause I never knew how I was going to pay for them all. It was so nice when we moved into a smaller place and we had better paying jobs and the bills were no longer scary. I remember how if felt to pay all the bills and still have money left over. It was a great feeling.

I put this in random thoughts, but it's also somewhat of a praise as well. I was baptized by water five years ago today, on September 11 of '04 -- though it was 2 or 3 years after accepting Christ in the first place. I never considered water baptism to be "essential" or "mandatory".. it's just something I opted to do when it felt right.

Melly
09-11-2009, 02:12 PM
aww thats sweet, happy birth by water lol, I guess, not sure you would call it that or not... Not sure I call it that lol.. I don't think baptismal saves anyone, but I think its a great thing to remember :)

Jeremy was supposed to get paid from 2 of his jobs before our weekend to the cat show, and one pays by cheque and he didn't get his cheque before the weekend. We didn't know if we'd have enough money (we paid off some bills), and we had enough for our trip, and even to get some cheese at a cheese farm on the way home.

I'm finding myself more confident with my beliefs than ever before in my entire life. I'm enjoying the simplicity of being able to tell people (on a few other forums, not this one) what I really think and believe when they ask questions or post topics, and I'm doing it without fear. That's new to me!

I'm learning that if people whine and shout, it doesn't need to affect me... that's their negativity and not mine!

I feel renewed, and empowered.

Good stuff Melly :)

My praise for today: I have a real calling to help other Liberal Christians, or borderline- and non-Christians who felt rejected by their former peers and left God as a result. I've spent all morning formatting a website for Progressive Christianity. I'm uber excited. This is the only thing I'm good at in life (websites)... I might as well be productive with it.

It's turning out better than I could have hoped for. I like to keep my sites simple and free from crazy coding (html and css is what I like to stick with). I didn't think I could make exactly what I wanted without breaking out the javascript, but actually it's coming along really well. :)

Church was basically awesome, the Priest was discussing their Sunday School program called Godly Play which started this Sunday-- and he went into a small rant about what is and is not important to teach children in Sunday School. He said "I don't care if they know how many giraffes were on Noah's ark, it's only a MYTH!"

i feel like an idiot for not believing God was going to help provide the way for me to go on my trip in March LOL

Jeremy and I went on Saturday to do some things in the city, and we went to visit my friend. I had not seen her outside of church, since October, last year. And since she moved to the city in the summer, she's not going to church here now. We had a really good day there. It's hard to keep a friendship going just writing on the Internet and we sorted out a lot of problems that we had. We hope to go visit again soon, and maybe we can eventually move there.

Jeremy made more money in September compared to August... about DOUBLE. He left a job and started a new job, it pays the same, but has more hours.

Wow, I finally completed my children's writing course that I started in 2005!!! lol I had to take a leave of absence at one point, a few times my lessons were submitted late and my husband was gone off an on for about 8 months during that time, but I did it. And now, I just need to resolve going through the rejection letters to become published.

Thanks, spiersdodgerblue :) I've already had 2 rejection letters that set me back in a bad way last year (2008). It's been a while since I've tried to submit again. I so badly want to make this a lucrative career move for myself (writing for children and parents) and having this certificate is very encouraging.

My husband has been working 6 days a week, 60-80 hours a week, for several weeks now. His boss just handed him an envelope thanking him for all the hard work and overtime, and said to take his wife (me! :D) out to dinner. It was only $100, not a lot of money for the amount of work he's been doing, but it made him feel like his efforts were recognized and appreciated, and it refreshed his spirit. So I'm very happy for that :)

This may sound silly to some but does God ever comfort you through dreams? Last night I had the BEST dream about Dh. I was visiting him in boot camp and all we did in the dream was talk and at the end of the dream he gave me the best hug. I woke up in a fantastic mood and missing Dh a lot less. It led to a very positive day :)

We went to see my daughter's Pediatrician yesterday. Josie is doing better, her fever broke. But she is still coughing a lot. Anyways it was such a rough week last week between starting a new job, all the trouble I went through to get the job, then my car breaking down, Josie getting so sick--all this on the week we were suppose to be going on a free vacation to the beach!

Well during the course of the office visit all of this just came out. And the doctor was so sweet and kind and just really took the time to listen to me and be a comfort. I know doctors are so busy and have little time, that the fact that she took a few extra minutes to listen to us just really touch me very much.

And so far it looks like thats about as much as I'll be making, because mom is on over time. Which I honestly do not mind, I enjoy having my house filled with kids, if I could be 100% sure I'd not have ppd again, I'd have more, and not just that, but feel at ease in my finances to provide. I know its not a good time, but that is ok, I'll enjoy someone elses kids :D God has really placed kids on my heart, I've always LOVED kids... I look forward to taking care of them...

I just have to post this!

My DDDDDDDDDDDDDDH has decided he isn't going to sit back and let christmas not happen around him at work. Instead he has taken full control of it all on camp and is organising Christmas dinner for the expats. Getting the caterers to do the full meal, table cloth on the table and everything. He is even searching for how to make bread sauce and stuffing online and then translating it into french for the chef!

It might not seem much to many, but to me it's amazing and a true answer to prayer and something else which just makes it easier for me sit back and enjoy christmas myself.

Thank you Lord.

Well I have even better news!

It went perfectly! The chef did them proud. They had their own table laid out in the bar looking all christmasy, they found decorations, and a tree (which they put together upside down as they have never seen a christmas tree before being muslims in a muslim country)

They chef did them turkey, a beef wellington, ALL the trimmings and DH said it was fantastic!

But it's because he took control and made it happen that it went like this. Which I tried to tell him, but since they and finished off 2 bottles of Vodka between the 5 of them when he rang I'm not sure what he will remember.

But thank you SO much Lord that DH's Christmas went so well. It is a true blessing to me to know that he was able to celebrate it so well, and also to see his growth through events like this.

THANK YOU!

"I've been so afraid
Afraid to close my eyes.
So much could slip away
Before I say goodbye.
But if there's no other way,
I'm done asking why."

These lyrics are an excerpt from the song "Hold my Heart" by Tenth Avenue North. I heard it on the radio this morning and it really touched me. God knows how to reach my heart. This song as a whole and especially that excerpt, was exactly what I needed to hear.

Holy is the Lord of Heaven

God is a God of love and faithfulness.
He will catch me if I fall
He gives me peace in my times of sorrow
And he rejoices in my happiness

My aunt is doing better!
I know I haven't posted anything about her on here yet, so here's a little background as to what's going on...

Back in September, my aunt was diagnosed with cancer. It's been a huge battle for her.

Just this past week, she went back to Mayo Clinic to see how the treatments are going. Turns out that the tumor is half the size it was. Plus, the spots on her liver have disappeared! And her blood work came back good. :D

Praise God that my aunt is getting better. :) (This aunt is my mom's sister for those who are wondering.)

It's not cancer!!!!!!! :) :) :) Still have more testing to do to figure out what is wrong, but it's not cancer! Praise God.

I am a little disappointed in myself for not having enough faith to begin with. But it's not cancer!!!!!!

Don't be disappointed with yourself. You are not a prophet. You trusted Him with cancer or not! He chose NOT CANCER.

I am happy-happy-happy for you!

I praise God today because He did an amazing thing in communicating with my mother today. She and I had a very good long talk about God and other things in life; things that I previously felt that she was closed off with discussing with me or would be frustrated with me about. It was nice to see God's hand in helping us to have a good talking time togehter.

I had the best time with friends today. After three years without close female friends IRL (and even longer without healthy friendships), my circle of friends is suddenly growing by leaps and bounds. Now there are six of us who regularly get together, attend church together, go to Bible study together...it's amazing. I'm so excited. :)

ohmygosh ohmygosh !!! I'm gonna start my cleanse program tomorrow (hubby came home just now with it), it's been something I've wanted to do for a very loooooong time now. Interestingly, I have finally been put in a position to get the product on the first day of Lent. This if probably the first process in a long while that I am looking forward to (the last time I looked forward to the actual process was when I was pregnant with my son in '04).

I have a few praises :D

My husband is the best <3

Seth is asking more and more questions about Jesus, I just know he'll come to know Jesus, and I hope I am the one that leads him to the lord, but if not I don't care, I will rejoice no matter who does that, I just am so glad I can show my son Jesus.

My husband brought me home my favorite drink of all time and as its not on my diet plan, I simply said "I love you and I love the thought, but I cannot accept it, I'm really serious about all this and I'm afraid 1 soda will pull me back in."...

Thank you, Lord, for providing us with a government that values human life.

It's not perfect. Lots of bad decisions have been made and there is much work to be done. But it doesn't allow poisonous metals to be ground up and made into baby formula. It doesn't choose our jobs or how we will live our lives or suppress our individuality in so many other ways. It doesn't allow mine workers and other laborers to work in extremely hazardous environments with absolutely no protection. It doesn't restrict education to certain "eligible" individuals.

God, you have blessed us so much. Help us pass these blessings on and not forget the plight of those without the protection that they so desperately need from their governments.

I have a praise! That insurance issue I was dealing with, has been resolved. My one medication, although pretty expensive, will now be covered under the new insurance and will be applied to our yearly deductible. I was thinking the medication would be cheaper when I called the pharmacy for a refill today, (as a covered drug now) although disappointingly that wasn't the case. Once our deductible is met, the insurance covers everything at 100%. I was going to go through AARP for this medicine, but now I won't need to.

I was thanking God right away for answered prayer in getting this resolved. :)

I'm overwhelmed by the people that the Lord brings into our lives.

I've just found out that my landlord, who we've always felt a bit negative towards, was a minister in the navy and one of his lecturers was John Drane who is the author of my main text book. They wanted to stay and chat, but had to go, but I had a hug from my land lady. Unreal!!!!

As we were talking I could physically feel the barrier between us melt. We all just started beaming and he has asked me that when (not if, but when) I am ordained that I start working towards bringing down the barriers the C of E has to ministers of other denominations to recognise their 'ordination' in the Lord.

I'm going to speak to my vicar about it tomorrow to see how true it is. As I know in our church we do not discriminate on grounds of denomination. Our invitation is to all those who love the Lord to gather around his table. But I know that isn't true of all denominations or all churches in the C of E.

I know dad has a reading from Ezra about the rebuilding of the church. I just hope I can live up to all these expectations.

But I feel light today, I just need to let this happen and the Lord will guide my footsteps.

WOOHOO!! Go GOD!

Thank you Lord, you are amazing indeed!
