I was not feeling well yesterday and I called out at the last minute.  My boss is very understanding and flexible.  PRAISE God!

I got to ride to Ocean City, fellowship and room with my little sister, Kara! So so much fun!  And, we had a yummy time on the beach and at dinner! PRAISE TO OUR FATHER!

I always get a bit nervous when I have to pray.  It's such an honor and I feel so privileged to have to ability to petition to the Father on behalf of others.  I went into the prayer room on Saturday morning, just before breakfast and there was a bright copper penny on the floor.  I burst into tears.  And, then I went into the powder room to get a tissue and there was another one on the floor by the sink.  I cried like a baby.  "Trust me Denise."  That's what God was speaking into my ear with His gentle voice.

Got this message and pic via e-mail from my new sister in Christ, Denise Michelle Fuller :-)

Hey Denise,

I took this picture especially for you! It reminds me of when Jesus said to His disciples, "Suffer the children to come unto me, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

​Your friend and sister,

Pennies are my thing.... yes, you already know that. Lol
On this day, it was rainy, dark and cold. My new sister in Christ, Michelle, found this on the ground when we went out for coffee.  I stayed in the car and when she came back with her coffee, she had this in her hand.  It was on the ground as she was walking back toward the cruiser.  So cool, so God!  You have no idea how special this penny is!!!!!!!

I am a World Vision sponsor and only #Jesus would gift me with a loving and beautiful step-son named, Sunny!  He loves school and writes to me all the way from India. I'm sunny and he's Sunny. Yes, a match made in heaven :-)

This is my bible collection and it doesn't include the one in my den, the one in my car and the one on my desk at work.  Yes, I love me some JESUS and I hope and pray to be a forever student of the word.
These are bible studies that I have participated in over the past 6 years and because my heart is committed to Him, I am forever grateful to those who have enhanced my knowledge and understanding of God's word and how to apply it to my life and share it with others!

These are resources to guide, direct and correct my footsteps according to His word.

These are future studies that I've collected and some that have been gifted to me by friends to assist me in my #thirst to have more and more of JESUS and His #truth.

Trust did not come easy for me.  Actually, I was unaware that I lacked the ability to trust others.  Jesus has proven to be trustworthy and therefore, I have chosen to put all of my trust in Him!  So freeing :-)

Just got this text....................so not afraid.  GOD knows and His will, will be done!

Was going to my car to get my tennis shoes for a search warrant and saw this penny on the ground next to the trash can.  HE put that there for me.  HE so knows my #love language!  "Trust me sweet child."  Yes, that's what He's saying..................

We have a space in our hall at church that we know as the "help yourselves to anything on this table" and yesterday, in the midst of my busyness, I noticed these gorgeous flowers.  I was rushing and my hands were already full, but I could not stop staring at these beautiful white roses.  So I picked a few, took them home and put them in some fresh water and yes, they are in my bathroom so that I can see them several times a day.

Although it was raining, I still went out for coffee.  But before I exited my car, I was reminded by the Holy Spirit to text my sweet sister Laurie.  Just wanted to remind her of something important.  There was a car parked beside me at the coffee shop and after I hit "send" the car beside me had pulled off.  As I exited my car, there was a penny where the car was parked.  If I hadn't been texting, I would have missed it :-)

God knows that pennies are my thing. Yes, I said it in pic #66 and I'm saying it again. Lol
I found this one while waiting at the pharmacy having a perscription refilled.  In my ability to "help" keep things organized, I was fixing the candy on the shelves by the counter and found this :-)
Dr. Charles Stanley, my second favorite Pastor once said, "There is a blessing in the waiting!"

Pause:  WOW!  I'm at picture #70.  It's so much fun being of the moment of what makes me happy.  The list can go on and on and on, but I'm committed to just 1 picture a day...and trust me when I say that it's not so easy to choose!  So, today it's this.............these are so freaking yummy, especially when you keep them in the fridge.  Sad face:  I'm all out for now, but I'll be happy again tomorrow when I go to Costco to get me some more.  Yes, His grace abounds even when it comes to #chocolate!

These are all true and it is truly how I feel.  In Christ Alone, my #freedom is found!  Hallelujah!

Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."

2 Corinthians 3:17 "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."

John 8:36 "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."

God knows that pennies are "my thing!"  He's placed them in very significant places for me and me alone.  He gifted me with one this past Thursday after I'd sat with a sick friend.  I held her hand for 2 hours and went I was headed home, I stopped to get gas and there was a penny on the ground.  She passed away the next morning.

And today, there were 8 cars parked in front of my office and as I got out of my car and put my foot on the curb, there was a penny.  Just for me!  I'm so his little girl and he so delights in me! :-)

Love these shoes. I bought them in Miami last year when I went to visit my sweet son. They remind me of "Sex In The City!"  I'm Carrie, minus all that "sex!" Lol
