This Week's Scripture

"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!

We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Birthday Blessings!

"I command you--be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

I am putting a picture of me when I was 39!! LOL Cannot believe I am having such a hard time with this birthday (the big 4-0). I have always been a "celebrate your birthday months in advance" kind of girl!! As hard as it was to swallow, God showed up and encouraged me and carried me "over this hill!" I still don't know how I got here and why all of a sudden I am getting "Mrs." Aimee' and yes ma'ams! I want to tell people that if you are within 20 years of my age please spare the ma'am and Mrs. So much for Southern Hospitality. I can surely do without some of those! HA!!
And in a way only God would do it, He managed to first encourage me with Joshua 1:9 which I desperately needed and then He very creatively reminded me of all the scriptures of my 30's that shaped my last decade! John 10:10, Jeremiah 29:11, Hebrew 11, Psalm 139! Only God would be so specific !! I felt so loved by Him on my birthday! Thanks, God!! And thanks to my family who are a huge blessing in my life!!

And Yay!! Henry graduated from HPC's Saturate Summer class! Congratulations, Henry!!
