Weekend is here and GONE!

This week has been busy yet again! Seems like the days just fly by and before I know it it's the weekend again!!

I have made it to the gym a couple of times this week! I'm so ready to get back into the schedule of the gym daily! It's been off since having kids sick and then with working at the church this month that has made my routine off.

Yesterday he had the girls most of the day as I had work at the church and then a baby shower in the evening. The girls love daddy dates! He made a special dinner for them French Toast, eggs, and bacon.

Today the girls and I have just hung out at the house. It was HOT today and I thought about going to the pool, but late naps didn't allow much time for that this afternoon so we chilled out at home. The girls played and I caught up on things here. Now Blue's Clues is on...and my Elizabeth is enjoying it very much!!

Now it's bed time for little one and bath for Rebekah.

I'm ready for a wonderful service tomorrow at Spirit of Life!!

Hope you had a wonderful week and a great weekend! Oh and join in on the Nutella Challange! It should be fun and a great way to connect with other bloggers and of course Nutella!

It's been busy around here....

So, it's been a bit crazy around the Greer house for the past week or so. Faith had that high fever due to a UTI of all things! She's getting better and on meds so hopefully this whinney attituted will end soon and she'll be back to her sweet disposition.

In the midst of this John's bike was totaled by the person who was going to be buying it at the end of this month.

Praise God that they were not hurt to badly and for insurace that is wonderful. If you are looking to change Progressive is great! The bike was a total losee so they paid off the bike for us.

Today we found out somene from our church died in a car accident Thursday night. She's the mother to a close friend of John's. Denise was a wonderful, sweet lady who served the babys at Spirit of Life in the nursery. She will be missed by her son and many others. Praise the Lord she's in heaven now. Please pray for her family who remains as this has been very difficult.

My sweet 15mon. old has kept me busy today as well. She's walking better and more now which means she's getting into more!! Wow is she a busy little girl and can make quite a mess of toys on her own!

What's Love Got To Do with It??


Love has to do with everything when it comes to God.

His whole purpose of creating this earth and all that is in it - particularly man - was love. He loved us so much that even as He already knew that we would disobey Him and be removed from the Garden of Eden, He made a way through His Son, Jesus, to bring us back to intimate communion with Him.

As I have been reading in 1 John the commandment from Jesus to love one another - to love our brothers and sisters in the Lord - has been putting this resounding sound in my ear and spirit.

Why would the Lord put such an importance on loving each other? He even puts the important's of loving to men when instructing them to love their wives as Christ Loves the Church.


God is love.

Even in 1 Corinthians 13 - the Love chapter...(paraphrasing) I can do many great things for the Lord but if I do not love they are all nothing - I am nothing.

As I have been studying on love and working on this post love has been a repeating part of messages at church. God is wanting to show us His love and as we receive love from Him we love others. The Lord is pouring out an abundance of the Holy Spirit upon His people - those who are willing to sit and be in His presence.

God wants us to love one another because they (the world) will know we are Christians by our love for one another. Love in action toward your brothers and sisters in the Lord is what "speaks" out to the world. The world is not know for it's kindness to one another it's all about me, myself, and I. And sad to say the Church can be like that as well, but it's not how we are supose to be.

Dean Sykes came to my church today and talked about being a Son/Daughter and not an orphan to the Lord. If you feel like you are an orphan you are alway seeking for that approval and trying to work for the love that is freely given from the Lord. When you know that you are a son/daughter you know WHOSE you are and are free in recieving love from the Lord and giving love to others.

More on this soon, but I have to take care of my daughter who has a high fever still.

Be blessed!
