I could not be more excited!! I get to go to a Photography workshop in Atlanta given by a very talented photographer, Debbie Layden. I have been waiting for what seems like months and it is finally here!! My mind is just a buzz! I'm such a visual person, I mean books are great, but there is nothing like having someone show you hands on how to do something! We have also had a group on flickr for a few weeks now and I really can't wait to meet all the great women that will be in my class! Debbie is going to be doing several workshops in different locations, so check out her blog for dates and cities! So pray that I will have a clear mind and soak up as much as possible, and hopefuly I'll have a few good photos to post when I get back! :D

This song has been in my spirit for a few days I ask the Lord to teach me more about abiding, it's amazing the things he shines His light on. If ABIDING in Him means soaring like an eagle, I want it!

Here I am waiting.Abide in me I pray.
Here I am longing.For you Yeah
Hide me in your love Bring me to my knees
May i know Jesus More and more

Come live in me all my life Take over
Come breathe in me I will Rise on eagles wings

Beutiful Savior Lord i love to feel your touch
You never forsake me lord you are your always there
Each passing moment it's you that i adore
i love you jesus more and more and more

I can fly i will rise on eagles wings
i will run and not faint
soar in your ways like an eagle
Put my hope and trust in you god Yeah Yeah

I have been blessed to join a beautiful group of women for a "Life Group" I am in awe at how similar so many mothers and wives from all over the world can be. I am so blessed by the openness, love and support I have experienced. We had our first chat Monday night, and I am enjoying the continued conversations on our Facebook Group. I am so in amazed at the possibilities when we make use of the modern technology we now have. I am so blessed to have a group of friends that in another day I might not have ever known. I am looking forward to seeing the Lord move in all of their lives as well as my own. It's not to late if you would like to join us, there is 5 weeks left.

I know there are a lot of areas in my life that are ripe for change and I know the Lord will do it if I can surrender to him.....I don't know what it's going to look like, but I look forward to sharing my journey with you.

Meet our newest addition. This is Dude, or as Steven would say a Angus bull calf sired by K205 out of an Irvington cow. ;) He came from one of Steven's customers. He was a twin and his mama couldn't raise him. The girls are thrilled. They have to go out every morning at 7:00am and every evening at 7:00pm to feed him......this one's for you dad....."a ruminant animal must be fed every 12 hours" :) I did listen to you growing up! Gotcha! He's getting stronger and more rambunctious every day! Just another fun adventure around here! :D

Ok, so I'm sitting in the Dr's office this know in the little room they keep you in forever before they finally come in to see you. By the way I have some how ended up with a staph infection between my's not pretty, so pray for me if you get the chance.....Ok, anyway, sitting there waiting for the Dr to come in, and I notice the wall paper, it's this awful Dr's office wall paper, horrible colors, but I loved the pattern, I though this would make a fabulous texture or grungy paper template or overlay!! I even almost reached for my camera, which I didn't have, and I forgot my cell phone has one.......can you imagine the Dr walking in on this crazy patient taking a picture of his wall paper? LOL!! So I just thought I'd share with you how warped my brain has become and how everything is now put through the scrapbook/photography part of my brain before it is processed! It's scary! I just had to laugh at myself!! ;)

I'm taking a hint from Mandy and choosing a word for the year. This is a word that I have been meditating on for some time. The word abide is mentioned countless times in the bible...

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. PSA 91:1

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he [is] like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: MAL 3:2

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. JHN 12:46

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. JHN 15:4

If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned. JHN 15:6

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. JHN 15:7

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. JHN 15:10

Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
1 JHN 2:24

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 1 JHN 2:27

And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 1 JHN 2:28

These are just a few that stood out to me. Many of them involve precious promises. Promises that are for me. I want to know what it means to abide. He said abide IN me, not with me. How much closer can you get to him, In him. I read the words and my puny little mind just can't seem to wrap around them. There are also many with warnings.....what will happen if we don't abide. I don't want to be one of those. It must be a place of perfect peace, justice, and immeasurable love. I am praying for a full revelation this year of what it means to truly ABIDE in Him.
