My parents and grandmother are still in and we are still enjoying the visit. Today was a good day except for a few hours of pain which the Lord helped me deal with. The paw paws and older grandsons went out for the 'garage sales' this morning - they came back with a truck load of stuff, believe it or not! I just hope Bryan does not get the bug for those things too bad.

Today was pretty hot until later in the afternoon. I did not get out at all until late and took a walk down the driveway, thankfully I can do such things and plan on continuing to do such things by faith as the healing comes.

This morning I was shaving and as I glanced in the mirror, it hit me how much weight I have lost - it hit me. . . "man, I look like a refugee from a concetration camp" I thought. I started crying all over again but within a split second God told me to "Walk by faith, not by sight" and He was not suggesting it either. So, I dried it up, and started walking by faith again.

So there is a good word for the day from II Corinthians 5:7 "Walk by faith, not by sight".

No matter where you are or what you are going through, God is still aware of what is going on in your life and He does care, whether it looks like it or not.

You are absolutely right about our needing to walk by faith. God's word created all that we see. That means that His word is more sure than anything we see. Stand on His word, and we stand secure!

I believe the change in the season is getting close. It certainly is closer than when we began. Be encouraged.

Numbers 11:23 The LORD answered Moses, "Is the LORD's arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you."

So good to see 2 of my favorite people in church yesterday!
I've been pondering what Jesus said to Thomas in John 20..."Because you have "SEEN" Me,have you believed? Blessed are they who did not SEE and yet believed."
And what Jesus said to Martha in John 11..." Did I not say to you,if you BELIEVE you will SEE the glory of God?"
It's easy to SEE and then believe...but a different story to BELIEVE before you SEE...Oh, Jesus...we want to please YOu...Give us the faith to Believe before we see...and to Praise You before we see...because no matter what...You ALone are worthy of praise!" AMEN
I love you guys...

You are a Conqueror George in Christ Jesus!!! Your deliverance WILL COME...I trust and believe a NEW strength will begin to take place in you! Although I said Hi to you at a distance and flashing (obviously I was in a hurry to meet a wild bunch of 3 year olds) A whisper came to me that was interresting as I passed....
"Did you see that? Yes, Lord, my spirit replied as quick as I heard it. That is ME in him and how Rich I am IN him"
Not sure when George but the annointing is about to SPILL out ALL OVER THE PLACE! Hang on! Stand steadfast, as you already are!

Love you guys!!!!
