Yesterday Elaine from Peace for the Journey began a series called "The Promise of Eden: The posture of an expectant heart". I would ask that you visit Elaine and see what this wonderful woman of God has to say. I guarantee you it will not be a wasted trip.
I'm going to be AWOL for about a week. We're attempting once again to leave for Kentucky first thing tomorrow morning for the whole "great white hunter in search of elusive turkey and his spouse who plans to spend some time sitting by Goldens Creek reading a few good books and exploring our new territory trip" that has been postponed a few times over the past weeks. I'll be computerless while we're gone (gasp! the horror of it all). I'll miss you all greatly and plan on boring you to death with pictures of Kentucky scenery, our property and our dear little "adopted" house when we get back. I promise I'll spare you the turkey pictures - unless of course I can manage to "shoot" one with the camera!

Fifty one posts ago, I began an incredible journey through the land of blog. I have met some incredible people along the way. Never in my wildest imagination did I dream that I would actually be making friends on this journey. Friends who can make me laugh. Friends who can touch the deepest recesses of my being. Incredibly creative and talented friends. Friends I can call on for prayer when there is a special need. And although we may never meet face to face, we have formed a bond that I can take with me wherever my journey through life may lead me. Fifty one years ago today, I began an incredible journey through life. One of the first friends I made along this journey was my "forever friend" Elaine. Although much younger (her birthday isn't until tomorrow!) Elaine and I formed a bond in the nursery at Butler County Memorial Hospital that has held fast all these years, and I have no doubt that it will continue to hold fast for the years to come. In celebration of these two memorable occasions that ironically fell on the same day, I'd like to share my joy with you in the form of a give away! All you need to do is leave a comment and on Friday (April 18) I'll draw a name from the hat and announce the winner. You'll have until noon Friday to enter. Thank you all for sharing this journey with me! Blessings! Liz

The following is an excerpt from an e-mail sent ot us today by our associate pastor . . . . . "Our church service this past Sunday was filled with the most beautiful music that I have ever heard...the music of an entire church family weeping and calling out to God for the healing of our Pastor. God is certainly working in his behalf and we give HIM the glory! What an wonderful God we serve!Keep praying, keep loving one another, keep looking up!" . . .but for the glory of God . . . !
Now, I'm still trying to remember if tomorrow is my 51st birthday or my 51st post. If anybody can figure it out, please let me know. I've been a little addle brained here lately. Regardless, I think it may be about time for a give-away! Come back for a visit tomorrow for more details!

Like their first haircut.
When they learn to tie their own shoes.
When they're all dressed up for a special occasion.
When you realize that the baby you were carrying so close to your heart just nineteen short years ago has grown into a handsome, talented, young man.
"I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings"
