I Hear The Sound of Heaven

I found this word of encouragement for 2014 on Pinterest from  Ruby Wives . I hope it encourages you as much as it did me.


Prophetic word: 

Get up out of your ash heap
Rise up and dust yourself off
You have mourned enough over what you lost
You have become too comfortable 
sitting in your misery and tears.

I hear the sound of heaven
The sounds of laughter and rejoicing
being sung out over you.

I smell the perfume of Heaven
being poured out over you
The anointing oil clinging to you

There was a time when Job
finally got up out of his ashes
and so must you
have the will to see better days
and the promise of His restoring 

Let the rains of heaven wash 
away the ashen smudges
of your yesterdays
No more looking at yourself
in your burnt up ruins and dreams

I hear the sound of singing and laughing
It's time to rejoice in Him
For He was faithful- 
He did not let you die
He did not let you be destroyed
and you became stronger within.

He's singing His love song over you
Smell His fragrance dripping all over you
Clap and sing
HIS beauty is being revealed
It's a new day for you -brand new!!!!


So It's New Year's Eve and I'm sitting here with Pepper, my Catahoula Bassett mix, trying to think of aspirations I have for the year of 2014. I am hesitant to call them resolutions because obviously no one knows the actual meaning of that word anymore. So here are my aspirations for new year:

1. Be closer to Christ
2. Be healthier
3. Have my application and home study completed
4. Live more simply

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:18-19

We are going to do the 52 Week Money Saving Challenge. We also plan on putting any extra change in the bucket too. We are so excited about getting closer to our goals to start our family through adoption.

No Time No Blog

It's been a while since I've posted anything, however I have also not felt as though I had much to say. We are still in the stages of saving and raising money. And with Thanksgiving & Christmas I have held off on doing another fundraiser until after the new year.

So, here is what we have been up to:

My husband to me to an Alabama game! First time I'd ever been!
My sisters and I always get a pic together and almost everything we do!
We held a Rahab's Rope Party to help #endhumantrafficking 
My niece Maddie and I go to Mobile Ballet's "The Nutcracker" each year!
I've started prepping for my small group's Spring Bible study
ADOPTION SHIRTS CAME IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
