while hanging out with my son i've been able to catch up on my surfing.... the net :) and, i came across blogging for books which is really exciting for me. i absolutely love to read! now i will kind of get paid to read :) at least i'll get paid in books. thanks rachel for introducing me :) i'm really excited to get started... wish i could start today, but i'll have to wait for the shipping of my first book.
our morning started with a conversation about jonah... maz told me he was fish food, and wanted to know why. and i told him that it was because God told him to go to ninevah (and explained that it was a town) and he was supposed to love the people there. but he didn't. then he was fish food... and it was because he didn't listen to God. so, it's very important to listen to God. then maz asked me what God wants us to do. so, my immediate response was... "love people." and, well.... that's what we're doing today, and until God gives us further direction :)
another thing God has me doing takes a little more planning... it's this youth center that i've had on my heart for a while. i've almost got the paperwork finished to become federally known as a nonprofit.... which will get me grants.... which, is what i need. i have someone interested in purchasing a building, but some things are held up in that regards. but, it will happen.
i've been reading in romans, and God has been really speaking to me through it... the message version says this: God does not respond to what we do; "we respond to what God does. We've finally figured it out. Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade"
that's chapter 3 verse 28 for those of you that needed to know... you know who you are :) anyway, it's been good... real good... God's been speaking to me in a million different ways, and i'm enjoying life. join me will you?
