Praise the Lord, what a God we serve. After reading this post I am kinda excited all over again of the FATHER'S Love for Me. If we could only remember this all day everyday, we could get through life so much simpler and easier.

I might have to borrow this for a post one day.

What a great list! I am going to store this away, study it a bit each day and keep it for a reminder.

I sent you an E-mail a bit ago, but it bounced back. This is what I said...
Hi Lisa,
I was just curious if you'd tried either the enchilada sauce or the chicken enchilada soup and what your family thought. I just deboned my chicken and
about to go start the sauce and soup. :)

Are you having a lot of rain too?

Hope you're having a great week!

I feel like I've been hugged by the Father.

He loves us so good.

And from your previous post, that's how I want to hear Him, too.

Sweet dreams.
