God is moving in us!!!

I know, I know. Several of you have mentioned that it's been a long time since I blogged so I thought I would update you!

We had just an awesome sermon last Sunday. The title of the series is Catch and Release. Randall did such an awesome job and I was deeply moved. I'm sure several of you noticed due to the red, swollen eyes that I had when I walked out of that room. I needed to hear each and every word he spoke that day. I left there with a feeling of urgency to deal with my past. On Tuesday night I had to go back to work and I listened to the sermon again. You got it, I felt that same sense of urgency. On Wednesday night at group, we had a continuation of Sunday's sermon. Again, I felt God moving in me. Thursday driving to work, HE SPOKE TO ME. He has always worked through others when speaking to me, but this time HE SPOKE TO ME. I had to submit and I called upon Teresa for help. I met with Teresa on Saturday and I feel like I'm on the path to RELEASING some of the "ugly carp" from my past. Praise God!!! Thank you for all of the prayers. I truely needed them.

Sean had such a wonderful birthday party. Thank you to all who came and for those of you who didn't come, you missed a great party. I can't believe my baby is 3 years old.

School is winding down and the boys have spring fever. Quentin and I have spring fever almost as bad. We can't wait to be outside all of the time. We look forward to hanging out with each of you this summer.

I want to thank God for bringing many new friends into our lives. It is out of our comfort zone to open our hearts to new people, but again it is what He wants not what we think we want.

I have felt lead to help with the Children's Ministry at church. I've thrown my intent out there and I'm waiting to hear what I can help with. I know we are growing as a church and I want to help facilitate that. He is moving in so many ways.

Praise God each day for the many blessings he has given each of us. God has his own way of showing us exactly what we need and what he has planned for our lives. I hope each of you have a wonderful week.

Blessings, Amanda
