This n’ That

This n’ That

Howdy All!

I hope all of you  had a nice Labor Day weekend, for all who live in the States that is!  Here’s my brief post for the week of some happenings around the Houston, Texas area, and a prayer, along with scripture reflection for you.

As you can tell from the picture above is a bunch of baby socks. We give each new gal to the HOPE Christian Infertility Support Group a pair of socks including our foundational scriptures in each, Jeremiah 29:11 and Romans 15:13. When the women receive them, they are deeply touched. We feel it’s important to give each person a symbol of HOPE, something they’ll  look at, smile and remain hopeful. Since our inception of the support group over five years ago, we’ve had over 50 women who were told, “You are unable to conceive or there is no hope for you” BRING THEIR BABIES HOME! And, a lot of the new mom’s have brought their babies home in their HOPE socks!

BUT GOD! He has the final say and I just love it!

Prayer for Anxiousness


“Prince of Peace, a feeling of anxiousness has come over me. At times, my mind is racing and my heart beats fast. Father, help me to do as You say in Your Word. In prayer and petition and with a thankful heart, I let my requests be made known to You. As I lay my requests at Your feet, I exchange my anxious thoughts for a mind of peace, perfect peace as you have promised, when my mind is stayed upon You. I praise You for the peace that passes all understanding.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Scripture Reflection

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
Isaiah 26:3-4 Amplified

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace that passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

*This prayer and scripture reflection were taken from my upcoming soon-to-be-published book, Dancing Upon Barren Land ~ Prayer and Scripture Reflection for Infertility.

This last picture here deserves a bit of explaining. No, I wasn’t born with three pairs of feet! These are the feet of some of my Peeps and me at Galveston beach recently. This represents what I’m going to be doing these next two weeks..

Putting my feet up and chillin’….

Yes, I’m taking a break from posting. I won’t resume my regular posting until September 17th. This gal, talking about moi’ needs some R&R and to take care of ‘me’. So please don’t think I’ve abandoned you, just the opposite, I’m going to fill myself up so I can come back and give more in return.

In the meantime, just know I carry you in my heart and whisper a prayer for you.

Thanks for visiting this website…I’ll ‘see ya’ soon!

Love Y’all!
