I recently was at Ignite, a Church function in Illinois with around 400 people from 16 different states, worshiping 1 Great God! I can't even begin to explain how much of an amazing weekend it was or how many things God taught me, or how beautiful the singing was, or how many things I learned. But one of the things that stuck me was Saturday evening after the speaker and time of worship we were all sent out around the camp and instructed to take a candle with us as we went out to each have a time alone in prayer and talking to God. And I had to think as I was walking away with my candle in my hand searching for a quite place to sit, this is probably somewhat how God is looking at me. Holding me in the palm of His hand shielding me with His other hand so my some flame does't go out as I walk against the wind. And I have to believe that's what He's doing with me. I have this burning flame inside of me that He put there when I asked Him to enter my heart when I surrendered my life to Him, and when I am wandering around in this life going through wind and storms, He's there shielding me and protecting me so I don't lose hope!
It also leaves me in awe of how so many people gather together and we all don't know each other but we know we have the same beliefs and we can have a heart to heart talk minuets after meeting another. And worshiping and praising God with such passion and humbleness that you get the shivers and tears in your eyes. Such an overwhelming feeling, and its amazing. How I wish everyone could experience the unspeakable gift, if only they give it up and let God take control.
In other news, its hard to believe its already September, corn silage is chopped, school has started, and fall is gonna be here before we know it! I find it funny, how we always talk about how fast the year is going, the days getting short/longer, the time change, and we or at least I have a conversation with someone about this fairly often. And yet it happens every year! Over and over again the same things happen! But then we can be or should be so very grateful that there's one thing that doesn't change and that's the Almighty. He has been, is and will always be the same! And He always makes a way for us when we think we are never going to have enough 'summer break' to get all we want to get done.

I've been jus loving these spring days, and have pretty much been spending every minute I get outside! Its oh so hard to stay in, in the morning to help the kiddoes with school when they want to be outside and so do I! Seeing the garden pop up and having the mower started up and the flowers blooming, I think spring is here to stay! :)

...I have a blog?!? I almost forgot! :) I will say, lots has happen since posted last. But now that the holidays are over, Marcus and Amanda's wedding is over, and sadly my Dominican republic trip is over, maybe I can slow down a bit and chance up on things and start making time to shave my legs again. (Ok maybe I'm not that busy, but I'm busier than I should be;)) But God in His almighty ways makes a way for everything and His faithfulness never ceases to amaze me. It seems every time I think I get to know God really well and He shows His mighty works the more less I really know about Him! And that's the awesome part about it! There's always something more and new for me to know about Him! And it just makes me want to pursue Him further! And that's exactly what God deserves! He wants us all in, and giving Him all the glory!
My week gone to the DR was definitely the most eventful and memorable trip.:) It's always an incredible experience going down there...I leave more of my heart there every time! Made so many new friends and so many wonderful memories and I feel so incredibly blessed! Its hard to pack into detail all the amazingness of the trip and I could go on and on about it and my love for the country and people, but I will probably bore y'all, so I'll refrain! ;)
And then I come home from DR and have not many days to prepare myself for the wedding. But it all went smoothly, got my dress, and my speech types out, and my emotions intact. All n all it was an amazing weekend and they had a beautiful wedding! And yes, I managed not to trip down the isle! ;) it's hard to believe my little sis is married, but at least she's just 12 miles up the road. And God knows exactly what He's doing, and even if I ever get married I'm glad she did it before me;)
Anyway that's all for now,
Until next time, Leigha:)
