Hi Everyone!!! I hope that you're having a wonderful day. I have been enjoying my little family. My husband is busily working in the home and outside the home. He has so many responsibilities; yet he cares for us his family so much! He spent time with our son and myself each individually. I really like that because it gives us the time he looks forward to spending with us. I said earlier that it was "relaxing Wednesday", yes because I found this music on YouTube; Secret Garden. You'll love it! It is very relaxing. I enjoy listening to it when I am studying God's Word, reading books, or simply just browsing the net. I also have it playing while writing posts here on my website. Here is the one I am currently listening to Secret Garden.
This speaks volumes to me. I have been dealing with some "complications", "hiccups" with my bone disease. These last couple weeks have been quite challenging. I could throw in the towel, but that doesn't do anything. Well, it does actually, it shows my son who has the same bone disease that I am weak. It shows him that I give up when I have told him not to give up. I tell him we need to take our struggles to the Lord in prayer. Sometimes we have to ask friends to step in and agree with us in prayer as well. I have done that this go round because it has been difficult. I have experienced, four cracks in my right ring finger, a fracture at the base of my middle finger (triangular chip off the bone), three cracks in my left elbow. All this without any trauma. I returned to the doctor 10 days later to see how the healing is progressing to find more after receiving x-rays! While in the splint on my right hand there was a new fresh fracture extending from one side of the ring finger to the other below the first knuckle up from the hand. They x-rayed the left elbow to find there was a separation and fracture now near the growth plate...these both while in the splints. I think to self "How does one fracture while being splinted?" I don't know, don't understand how, but it's happened. I have even spoken with friends of mine with the same bone disease and they have experienced the same. They are now helping me through this experience. I will be better for it for my son in the long run after if he ever experiences the same. I also fractured my index finger just writing with a pen on top of these other fractures. Talk about challenge...that's why with this picture I posted I want to speak about it.
Don't measure the size of the mountain-your challenge-your problem. Don't let this overwhelm you. I must admit I have been overwhelmed with this, but now I am taking stand, standing strong, staying strong with the encouragement of others and the Lord. I have been in prayer about this with the Lord telling him how helpless, weak I feel in this challenge. Help me to understand how this happens with our bone disease. Help me to meet my son at his challenges. Help me to teach him to stand strong!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
Grace & Peace,

Greetings everyone !!! Hope you are having a wonderful morning, afternoon or evening for those of my friends across the waters.
I have been doing a ladies study at my church these last couple of weeks. I am really enjoying the book, but at times the enemy just finds his way in to wreak havoc in my life. I myself and some of the other ladies have mentioned that the enemy was attacking them as well. I find that when I grow or draw in closer to the Lord that Satan is close behind to try and trip me up, get me distracted, tempt me to step away from where I am going. I will continue with our study. When this book came up as choice I decided that I wanted to look further with this. I am glad that I did. The funny thing was as I was doing my lesson for our ladies study the question we had was "Read Isaiah 14:12-14. Read also page 39 in the book. Who was Lucifer? Whom did Lucifer want to be? What did he do and why?" When I did as my book asked I did it, but at same time I was drawn to this book too. I started reading and there in the beginning of the book was my answers that I was seeking. This book is now a companion to my book I am doing with the ladies. I highly recommend this book so you have the tools and knowledge to fight the wields of the enemy. Enjoy your reading! Have a wonderful day! God Bless you!

I just wanted to share this video with all of you. This song just touched my heart in so many ways. We need to make a stand and come back to God. We need not be afraid that we have a relationship with Him; stop thinking what others think. Take a listen to this song.
I have been doing a study at my church, KCWC with several wonderful friends. We are going through the book by Stormie Omartian; Prayer Warrior. There are so many gems packed in this wonderful study. Being a prayer warrior is something that you do because you love the Lord. Being a prayer warrior is another way to reach out and help many that you may not be able to help directly because of the circumstances that are going on.
This is my notebook and just some of my notes I have been adding to it. I have a feeling that I will outgrow my notebook soon.
This here is my prayer journal to add to my arsenal of tools to be God's Prayer Warrior.
Yes, I know that it says "Kitt"-this is a nickname that some of my very close friends have given me. This is filling fast. What I have been doing is putting in the prayer requests from you, friends, family and others who have asked prayer from me. I also am including when God answers the prayer. If there is a request that changes; an update that gets added, but in a different color. I have another for the answer to prayer requests as well.
If anyone would like me to pray along with you with anything going on in your lives, please send me a message. I will stand in the gap and pray with you.
Thank you for stopping by.

Greetings everyone!!! Hope you are having a wonderful day! I am now that this arrived at my door. My UPS driver knocked then announced that he had a package for me. I was pleasantly surprised. I am also thankful because it is a birthday present to myself. I was hoping it would arrive in time and it did. My birthday is Friday. The devotion I read today to start January 4th; the scripture reference is from Lamentations 3:22,23 in the ESV. I noticed on some of the devotions the scripture at the top was there and if a different version of the Bible was used that version was placed at the end of the scripture reference. I enjoyed that because I found that it applied more for the devotion given for that particular day. When Joni closed the devotion for the day she did with a prayer. I loved reading them and asking the Lord to help me in applying these things in my life where I felt I needed to do so. I am going to continue to read through the devotional then when I am through I will pass to a friend to read through and get it back then when the Lord leads I will pass it to another.
Thanks for stopping by!
