listen up. yes, i'm talking to you. all of you.

i was just reading jenny's blog along with all the comments from you ladies about the situation with her baby.

i sat back for a second after i commented.

is this...situation we have here amazing to any of the rest of you? (sorry for you guys who have no idea what i'm talking about..)

i mean, it's like our little ladies group over blogs. everyone is praying for everyone else, and even though we don't see each other all the time -- especially me, being in dallas -- it's like we don't miss a beat with what's going on in each other's lives.

you all know that ellie and i went swimming this morning! and i haven't had an actual conversation with any of you! amazing!

anyway...this goes along with the text conversation kylah and i had yesterday in that i'm just amazed at how God can bless and minister to us through any means.

He transcends every generation and speaks in ways He knows we will hear.

incredible, don't you think?

kylah and i were just talking tonight at church what a blessing the blogs are to us. we were discussing how everyone just continues to lift each other up.

it's kind of like the church described in the new testament. everyone was continually breaking bread together.

What an awesome God is he.

absolutely incredible! i sit in awe. the dynamic of it all is's ministry naturally and divinely orchestrated. without any planning or intentionally ministry, it's happening. this is the way it should be. this is what a small group really is.

I like what Melissa said on a comment to my last blog about how we've been uplifted. If anyone was down they don't stay that way long. God is touching through each of us.

it is totally incredible. this has been the topic of conversation between many of us in these here parts. we are all amazed at the way God is using this thing to minister to each of us through someone else. i feel very blessed to be a part of it.

i know not every blog has been serious or spiritual, but hey, that's what makes it fun! it's just our journal for the world to see and our worlds are just really helping each other out right now!

it's an amazing thing to be a part of.

It is amazing the way that this helps us uplift each other through hard times that we wouldn't even know they were going through without the blogs
Thank you Lord you are awesome even in our blogs!!

It feels like we are all in it together. Suddenly, the problems that were solely on one person. Are now shared. The load is slightly less heavy.

I love it too! I love how much I have learned about and from all of you. It's been a fantastic blessing and I love the honesty of it. I am so glad it has had this outcome.

I am a little concerned about August 27th. How can I teach and check blogs at the same time????
