  19. When I was in Grammar School, we said students who talked to themselves were not all there in their minds. Now I admit that I see benefits in rehearsing what I plan to say to another person out loud. Why does it take a lifetime to learn valuable lessons about maturity.

    Prayer is talking with our Creator about any and all my concerns. I really enjoy knowing that God and I have a pleasant relationship. I Pray for my immediate family almost daily. I’m not trying to remind God not to forget but it makes me feel very secure (with Faith) and comfortable. I like saying out loud, “thank You Lord” for Blessing my Mother and Restoring Her Strength. Thank You Lord for Your Favor on my Children’s lives. Help my Husband with our Business and send us reliable customers.

    Global Prayer is a necessity and Local Prayer is a necessity. That’s why we are commanded to Pray always without ceasing, keep an attitude of Prayer.

    I am sending up petitions for the Mothers on In(Courage) where I am commenting now and those in the Administration of In(Courage).

    I live in Clinton, MS and I was Teacher Assistant and Secretary for Special Education before Rheumatoid Arthritis became a challenge for my life.

  24. Struggling to stay faithful to the assignment God has given me due to the opinions of others and the lack of participation .
    This was something I felt led by the Spirit to receive the baton from the former leader. Lots of the people who joined with the former leader does not embrace my leadership as valid. Pray strength for me to finish this assignment with excellence.
