". . . WINGS LIKE AN EAGLE"

Posted on December 7, 2016 by CJ Armstrong, Sister #665

"Yet those who wait for the Lord, will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired. They will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:21

This is my favorite Bible verse and I try to "wait" on the Lord, trusting Him to give me all I need. He truly knows me best and He knows what I need and He knows my heart. Sometimes the waiting gets so difficult and the longer one is in His "waiting room" the more difficult it becomes. I do KNOW, without a doubt that He is there and He is in control. Thank you God!

ROSEMARY IN BLOOM

Posted on December 7, 2016 by CJ Armstrong, Sister #665

Our rosemary plant that we purchased in late spring in a 3" pot and planted in terra cotta pot has grown and now, in late November has bloomed with lovely little lavendar colored flowers.

It lived outside all summer and fall, but now that the cold winter has come it has been moved in the house. Hoping it continued to thrive.

I've tried to "winter" them over outside but it's just too cold here ... Read more →

Whoa... I need something to hold on to!

Posted on December 7, 2016 by Alicia Winkler, Sister #5232

It has been only a handful of days since I truly decided to LEAP into the huge project of my self-made challenge “100 Days of Abundance” and, man, has it brought some things into the light!

I sat down and started some lists. I am list maker, you should know. I made a list of what I need to be able to live fairly comfortably at the cabin during our long-term camping trip.

It isn’t too bad, really, a lot of things that needed done, anyway ... Read more →

Straight: How to use it and not abuse it by Zeliha A. Thomas, Horse Trainer, Reiki - Master

Posted on December 6, 2016 by Gina McKnight, Sister #5281

There is a lot to do about the word straight related to horses. I want to get into the differences and their meaning, and misconduct among a lot of people and especially the ones who have to do with horses. The word straight has a lot of different meanings. Most people who have had lessons with a trainer have heard at least once that they had to straighten their horse, which has to do with how a horse body is positioned, and is straight in his body, both sides of its body equally developed. That is a meaning of straightness that is well known in the horse industry. And every well-educated trainer will tell his pupil that as soon as they have learned to sit independently on a horse. Of course, it is very important to be able to straighten your horse for multiple reasons. But that is not the kind of straight I mean. Then we have the straightening out. What as much means that the horse needs to know its place, and that it is taught by the rider the hard way ... Read more →

Lamplight

Posted on December 6, 2016 by Amanda Childress, Sister #1390

The electricity hasn’t gone out. There is something absolutely magical about reading by the light of an oil lamp.

When days grow dark at five o’clock, artificial light given off by electric bulbs seems harsh to my eyes. It’s too bright; too unnatural, perhaps.

Tonight I’m enjoying the illumination and warmth given off by my Mamaw’s green glass lamp ... Read more →
