Today is the letter "I" at alphabet soup - I was sending you over to Morning Glory's place, but when I went over this morning, I found that she's on another bloggy break. Wouldn't you know, just when I get inspired?? Hey, that's an "I" word - inspired!
Since I have a bit of "blog fog" going on myself (a phrase invented by dear Tammy), I decided to do the alphabet soup thing today, and will do it anyway just for fun. Especially since I couldn't sleep last night and began thinking of words, writing them in the dark so I wouldn't forget them. Many of the words I thought of are abstract rather than concrete. So here goes ...
DC works for a family of inventors. They have amazing minds and have created many products over the years. The Walker Mower is the one that took off and has provided employment for many people, including a number from our church. They've been such good stewards of what God has given them, and have helped many friends who found themselves in need of jobs.
I love GOOD ice cream. I have found some very good low-fat varieties.
Islands - especially the Big Island of Hawaii. You knew I was going to say that, didn't you?? I enjoyed the islands of the Caribbean on our cruise as well, but have decided I'd rather go back and spend a week on St. Croix rather than a few minutes on 5 different ones in a week. I'd also like to be there when the cruise ships didn't come in.
Impossibility - because when things are impossible, God can show us His power.
New International Version (NIV)Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:25-27
New International Version (NIV)Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." Luke 18:26-28
It is my privilege every day to be with my granddaughters and to watch their imaginations develop is the most fun of all. I have to go to another room sometimes to keep from giggling in front of them as I listen to them creating their fun.
We live in an age of overwhelming information. Information Overload is a problem sometimes - I feel as if my mind is a computer hard drive with TMI!
I have gone to Women of Faith several times and have come back with what I felt was Inspiration Overload. But I don't truly think that's possible. We need all the inspiration we can get, but sometimes processing it all takes awhile.
And the one that has become so important to us here in blogland - Intercessory prayer. What a blessing it is to know that we can put a request out there in cyberspace and people will be praying, just as if they were our church body.
I don't know if anyone else will be doing this today or not, but "I" enjoyed it.
