Wednesday, Church night

Howdy

My dad always used to say Howdy. In fact I think he still does. That's one of my fondest memories of my dad.

I enjoyed talking about the books yesterday.

Laure, I googled to look up the Little Star story and I found two of them. I was wondering if either one was the one you remember? I saved them, maybe I could email them to you to see... send me an email when you can since I don't have yours. My email is gimpykatk@aol.com

That said here's a question for you all? What was/is your favorite Disney movie?

Mine is The Jungle Book.

I ask because I see it's coming out on DVD next week for a limited time and I sure would love to get it. "It's a Bare Necessity" if you ask me, LOL. I also love the Lion King too... great songs there... "a cuma matada" means no worries for the rest of your days.

I got my message outline done finally. Thought I'd share it with you all here. Feel free to skip this next section if you don't want to read it. I won't be offended.
*********************
It starts with a conversation I was having with my friend Shelly. We were talking about another WW doing so well, and I commented that I want to do well too, but there are too many hurdles in my way. I can't lose weight if I can't buy food. It's not that I don't want to but things are just too bad around here.

In obedience to God, she said " I know where you're coming from, but it does sound like a cop-out doesn't it?"

So I went onto explain it in a more visual way.

Stacking cards to make a card house. I know how to do it, I have done it before many times. I have even taught others how to stack the cards. God called me to stack these cards years ago and I did, for a long time. But then the wind storms came, and the rain, and the place where I was left to try to stack the cards. I used to be in a house, no people around to blow on my tower, no risk of an outside source blowing it down. But now I am out in the open, not even a table to build on, I have to use the unstable ground, and tornado's, hurricanes and dogs etc, keep knocking down all my efforts. It's not fair.

Sounds credible right? WRONG. God interrupted me right there and said...

"My daughter, I called you to build card houses, I did not say they must always stay upright and standing, I just called you to keep building"

OUCH...

I stopped building because I couldn't keep the structure standing, but God will take care of the standing part, He just wants me to be obedient to the building.

My scriptures to go with the message are:
Pro 23:12 Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

Pro 8:33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

Pro 4:13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

Only a few more days until the October contest starts. I am getting excited, are you?

Well I guess that's all for today. See you tomorrow

AK ~ Message looks good, thanks for sharing!!

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Hands Down. If I had to pick a newer one, I'd pick Lilo and Stitch. There's lots of things in this one that I don't agree with yet at the same time, it's about family and finding your place.
