What a way to wake in the night!!!

Last night, Sweet Hubby and I studied out of Revelation at bedtime. It is such a sweet thing to study with him. My man knows so much and is so willing to learn. He has such a teachable Spirit and in turn teaches me so much as well.

Last night just before our heads hit the pillow we read out of Revelation. If you haven't read it in a while I encourage you to read it. Take some time in the Word.

Revelation 21:22-23 "I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp."

Is that not a beautiful depiction of the city we are going to if we are believers in Christ? These were not part of the Scriptures we read last night, but I read them this morning and they are such a reminder to me that this earth and it's trouble is not all there is!!!!!! We are going to a city whose Maker and Builder is God and where the Lamb is the Light!! Where sin and it's effects will never be. Hallelujah!!! That is such GREAT news!!!!!

Well in the middle of the night I awoke with these words going through my mind: "Come Lord Jesus, Come!!" A couple of times through the night that is what was on my heart. It was such a wonderful way to wake, because I knew that in my sleep I'd had God on my heart. I have decided that is the BEST way to go to sleep, with God on your heart, because it is ABSOLUTELY the best way to wake!!

I want to keep an eternal mindset. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the things that are going on here, that we don't spend time in the Word as we should and with the Father. It is critical to spend that time with Him, so that my heart can be focused on Him and not what is going on around me in this world. I need to keep my eyes on Jesus. Amen?!! Amen.


I wanted to let ya'll know that the flu has hit our corner. We had Dak to Urgent Care on Saturday evening, and he has H1N1. One of the first things he said as we left was: "Mom districts!!" Districts are on Saturday and that determines who will go to the State Meet this year. He and one other runner on the HS boys team have a shot at going and two girls on our HS girls team. So he is really wanting to get over this and back on the mend so he will be able to compete.

He is doing pretty good. He had a high fever yesterday, but is MUCH better today. He is quarantined to his room, but it's not like being quarantined to your room back in the day. He has a TV, play station, games, movies, I-pod, books and various and sundry other things to keep him busy, so he doesn't even mind. He is looking much better today and I just took him a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. So he must be feeling better if he wants cheese on his stomach =)

I hope you all have a Blessed day today and remember to read the Word today. It will give you insight and just lift you up!!!



  1. H1N1 is sure getting around, isn't it? Glad to hear Dak is feeling better... I'll be praying he gets to compete!

  2. Will pray for Dak!

    I just love God's Word and Revelation has some fabulous events to look forward to! Come quickly, Lord Jesus..

  3. Praying right now for Dak - for his healing and that God would grant him the desires of his heart.
    Blessings ~ Lisa

  4. I am reading Roaman's right now. It is such a hopeful and love filled book.
    My son was senior in HS when he got mono. Please no jokes. He missed his whole cross country season. I pray that your son gets well before districts. It is heartbreaking when they have to miss.

  5. OH NO... poor Dak... I hate to keep hearing of everyone getting this nasty stuff!!! Hope he feels even better tomorrow! it'll take him awhile to get 100% .. poor thing, wasnt he sick not too long ago too. He's had quite a bummer of few months!

  6. Abba Father, we ask you to wrap your Healing Arms around Dak and restore Him to health. We thank You that You are His GOD and you dwell in his temple and therefore Dak shall walk in good health. We pray for Your divine intervention for his district sports and we pray for good health and covering for Dawn's family. We love you Abba and we thank You for hearing our prayers in Jesus Name. Amen and Amen. Thank YOu Lord Jesus.

    Dawn, as you wrote: "Come Lord Jesus, Come!!" I agree with you on Revelations.

    Love you dear sister.
