Summer’s Over

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to get new school shoes and pencils and whatnot. This year Deuce will be going to public school. He went to the Christian Academy last year but his daddy is teaching at a school in a different district so for ease of transportation (we are a one car family) he will be car pooling with dad.

School starting again also means schedules and lists. I’ve had planners in the past and they just haven’t worked for me. So what does one do in that situation? You guessed it. Pinterest! After a late night scroll or twenty I came across an idea that I loved.  I’m calling it The Book. I printed out some calendar sheets I found free online and put them in a three ring black binder. I added notebook paper for prayer lists, menu options, and random notes I might need to write down. I’m still working on a cover design, but I’m definitely digging what I have so far.

Ladies Shut In

So Thursday night and all day and night Friday I was at a women’s lock in at Anointed Tabernacle in Beaumont Texas. So many words come to mind when I think of what I experienced for the last day and a half. The most prevalent though, is AWESOME! You’ll find that I use that word a lot lol. I saw women getting the Holy Ghost for the first time, I saw women being baptized in Jesus name, I heard prophecies. I saw an angel! The spirit was really moving in that place and I feel so blessed that I got to experience it all.

On the last night a man came in. I watched as they lifted him from his wheel chair and laid him on the alter. They laid hands on him. They prayed over him. I watched as the spirit overtook him. I watched as he lifted his hands to God. I watched the tears flow down his face as he spoke in tongues, and I rejoiced with him! When they put him back in his chair, I watched as he wheeled a lap around the sanctuary! Seeing the pure joy on his face as he went down in that water and came up a new man was a beautiful sight to behold.

There was so much I didn’t know when I got there. How to pray was one of them. I always felt silly praying; in public and in private. I’m naturally a shy person which plays a part in my finding this difficult. There was a lady there who sat and talked to me for about two hours. She was so helpful and I will forever be grateful that I had the opportunity to speak with her. They handed out packets when we got there. They were filled with all kinds of goodies about praying and fasting. She was kind enough to take some time and answer some questions I’ve had for awhile and have been too embarrassed to ask. I told her things about myself that I had never told anyone else. It was such a cleansing and eye opening experience!

Going forward, I hope to grow in Christ and build on the things that were revealed to me in listening to Sis Warner, and the last prophecy in particular.
