oh BOY

Sarah Avery loves the Boys....

See this darling little fella? Well, his name is Tyler and he is one of SA's friends from MDO. I debated whether or not to post this, and then decided that I want to. So, here ya go:

This handsome little guy pursued my daughter today at MDO by holding her sweet little hand... you heard me right. What a sweet little friend. The teachers told Amy (Tyler's mom) that "he made the first move"... hahhahaaaa..This is such a sweet little age when they are learning who their little buddies are.

You are a sweet friend Tyler!

20 years old, mother of 14. Oh how I know the Lord must be rejoicing and singing over her.

Through the Holy Spirit, Katie's witness is shaking my heart up.

Orphan Sunday, November 8th. Pray for the 147 million orphans around our world.

How can you be involved? Pray for orphans to have food, shelter and and God's love demonstrated to them. Give $ to ministries that are feeding orphans, or give $ to a family who is adopting an orphan. OR if you are able, adopt.

(weren't we all orphans?) "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." John 14: 18

"we who have been rescued will desire to rescue others. We who have received the good news will desire to build families where the gospel can be demonstrated and relayed". ~Justin Taylor

How good is this? Seriously, How good is God to give me the most incredible little amazing child. She is beyond sweet and full of all kinds of love. She has all her little friends all tucked into her at this moment.. She is holding on to baby monkey (he has a paci, just like her), phx zoo monkey(thanks Kayla), baby (thanks Elle), baby kitty and tiny monkey... Yes, she loves monkeys.
Anyways, today I have thought a lot about how good the Lord is. I won't forget. I am so thankful for my salvation and the peace that He brings my soul.

Well here lately I have been reading a few blogs that have been breaking my heart. I believeThe Lord has led me to these blogs to minister to a heart that has desires that only He knows how to comfort. Only He knows how to show me that there is hope in those desires. These desires are not necessarily pretty or easy or even what many feel called to be part of, but my Jesus put them in there and He knows specifically how to show me that He has a way of ministering to me in the midst of the time I wait to see and experience how he will bring them out in my life and my family. When I meet someone who is living out what I believe God called me to do, it just mushes inside to my core and brings out a beautiful thought life of "one day I think this will be me and I trust the Lord to bring it"....

It's ok if you don't understand specifically what I am talking about, but I would like to share a portion of her blog with you. I have been running to her blog everyday to see what the Lord is doing in her.. Oh my how I just stand in awe of an amazing God who is using one 20 year old lady in ways that baffle me and bring me to my knees knowing that He who is faithful will complete the work in me.

"My dear children, I am with you. I watch closely as you struggle for holiness. Often, you are uncertain of your spiritual condition. You strive to serve but feel conflicted by the times in which you are serving. There are some things that all humanity deals with regardless of where in history they are placed. First, there will always be a difference between the world’s path and heaven’s path. These two paths, while they can run along side each other for increments, will always separate. Ultimately, each man will have to choose. Every man, to a greater or lesser degree, will have to contend with choosing first good over evil and then he will have to make another choice and that is the choice of choosing My plan for his life over his own plan for his life. After that, the choices become even more studied in that the man must choose My plan in each day, in each task and even in each moment. You may say, dear apostle, that this is a difficult call for a man, to study his actions in each day. You may say, this is asking a lot. You are right. I, Jesus, am asking a lot of you. I ask for your full commitment and I do so without apology. Dearest apostles, if you give me your full commitment, there is no limit to what I can do. Look at your life. You have said yes to me on many days. Examine what I have done with your yes answers. Consider what I am building with the commitments of so many children of God who are willing to be directed by the Saviour, their King. I am building a structure of love. I am building a structure through which many are returning. Truly, your hearts, open and filled with My love, call out to others. You provide for Me a welcome to those who feel separated. If they can be taken into your heart for even a brief moment and experience Me, with My love, then they will have the courage to both approach Me directly and to accept Me directly. Please, do not count the sacrifices when you consider your service. Do not count the loss of worldly respect. Count only the souls who are comforted and consoled. Count the repentance and healing of so many who have been restored to unity with heaven. Count the humility that I have bestowed on you, dear apostle, since you began to learn about true holiness. I am your King. I can give you anything. I choose to give you peace and holiness. I choose to make of you a resolute servant. Accept My will in your life and you will then be able to accept all of the graces heaven has stored up for you. "Message from Anne, lay apostle
