Heaven Part 2

I guess that it is time to add another about heaven study I am doing. The other night was are 3rd study of the topic and we talked about what we would be like in heaven. As I sat there listening to everyone talk about the verses we had to read, I just thought what it would be like.

One thing that I have learned is we will be made like God. Man is that not cool. I am going to be made in the image of the LORD! What more could we ask for. Second thing that we learned is we are still going to eat. I am so glad. We are going to be with the Lord, eating with Him and worshiping with Him. What more could we ask for. And Guess what there is not going to be any DRAMA in heaven. I think that I am really looking foward to that. DRAMA free, what more could we ask for!

The Beach

On the 4th Truman and I took Trey on his first beach trip, He loved it. I really think that he could be a beach bum. Trey loved the water and the sand. We took one of his tractors and puched and dug the sand all day long. Truman also dug a hole and he sat in it and played for a while.

As I thank about the Joy that God has given us, I can not help to think about the joy that Trey had that day.

He was so much fun and I enjoyed just watching him. I really think that is what God does when we doing something that pleases Him. He looks at us and says " Look at Amanda, she is just a joy to watch." I try each day to do that, but I know that I disapoint Him some too. I am so Glad that My Father is a forgiven Father.

I look at the beauty of the beach and I can truly see the Lord. Thank you, ABBA!

The Special Gifts

As I sit here and thank about the many gifts that I have received through the years, I can not help myself thanking about the GIFT of PARENTING that God has given me. After we had Trey, Truman and I deceided that he was going to be the only one. We had been through two miscarriages, and then a tough pregnancy with him. Not to mention the three weeks in NICU that we spent with Trey. Through all of this we decieded that my body was not made to care or have children.

Well, I guess God has other plans. Six weeks ago, after K-Group one Wednesday, I told Truman that I was pregnant and he did not believe me. So, here we go off to Wal-Greens and get a test. The test showed the truth. I was pregnant. So, here goes the phone calls to the doctors office. The med, vitamins, and zofran. Well, I thank God every day now for not letting "our plans" stop Him. This just shows you that He does give out special gifts to everyone.

I am due Jan. 28th and I know that I will have it 7-10 days early due to C-Section. I will keep everyone posted as I keep getting bigger. This one has been so easy so far. I just keep on praying that it keeps going this way.
