Victory in the Face Defeat
Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him to God.
But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me: my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill.

Certainty of the Scriptures
2 Peter 1:19-21
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; where unto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

The Disciples Do Not Fast
Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

On Dr Oz today they had a segment that I thought was interesting. I wanted to share with you all. It was talking about Beauty Finds at the Dollar Store. Which I am all into, with the economy the way it is, that is the only way to go. Hope you may find this interesting, also.
Use Plain Pumpkin Pie Filling and an Exfoliation Mitt
Put the pie filling on the mitt, rub all over your face
Let set for a few minutes and wipe off
Moisturizer with Vitamin C
Read the label to make sure it has Ascorbic Acid
Moisturize your face every morning
Lip Plumper Lip Gloss
Read the label to make sure it has Tribehenine
This restores volume and traps in the fluid to your lips
Ginseng Tea Bags
Moist the tea bags with warm water
Put the tea bags on your eyes
This will work on the crows feet & bags around your eyes
It will relax you & the muscles around the eye area
I hope you will find these helpful. If you have any other tips feel free to send them to me. Have a bless day...

The Lord Is My Shephard
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Well it is official, I am old! Seriously, I thank God for each and every day of my life. I just wanted to share with my friends how my weekend went.
Friday for lunch: Mom, my Aunt and best neighbor ever.
What a time we had. That was our first time there. If you have never been to a Tea House, you should try it at least once.
Friday night: Met up with friends and had Mexican food. It was 7 of us and we had a blast. Had birthday song (I guess) sung to me and wore a big old sombre.
Saturday night: My hubby took me to a fancy restaurant for dinner. We have been married for 30 years & this felt like the first date night we had. I would not trade this night for anything.
Sunday for lunch: After church 15 of us went to an Italian restaurant and once again ate more food. Had birthday song sung to me from an opera singer. My best friends, Mom, hubby, Pastor and family all went.
Sometime this week: Friends are going to take me to Chucky Cheese, per my request. They wanted to take me somewhere for my birthday.
Why is it that birthdays are based around food? The older I get, the more going out we do.

Confronting Apostasy (Abandonment of one's religious faith)
2 Timothy 3:14-17
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

The Pure Words of the Lord
Help Lord; for the godly man ceaseth for the faithful fail from the children of men.
They speak vanity of every one with his neighbor; with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
The Lord shall cut off their flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things.
Who have said, With our tongue will work prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighting of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnance of earth, purified seven times.
He is the light of the world

I KNEW THEE
Then the word of the Lord came unto me.
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Then said I, Ah Lord God! behold, cannot speak: for I am a child.
But the Lord said unto me. Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.
Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.

The Temptation of Christ
And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him. If thou be the Son of God cast thyself down from hence:
For it is written, HE SHALL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER THEE, TO KEEP THEE:
And IN THEIR HANDS THEY SHALL BEAR THEE UP, LAST AT ANY TIME THOU DASH THY FOOT AGAINST A STONE,
And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, "Thou Shalt Not Temp The Lord Thy God.
And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

And the same John had his reiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea and all the region round about Jordan.
And were baptized of him to Jordan, confessing their sins.
But when he saw many of the Parisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them,
O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come.
Bring forth thereforth fruits meet for repentance; And think not to say within yourselves.
We have Abraham.and now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees:
therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Thou Hast Left Their First Love
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write: These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks.
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left their first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Safe Haven was released today Sept. 14th
I have already bought it
Here is some goodies to get you excited about the book
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small NC town of Southport, her sudden arrivial raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.
But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifes her...a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo's empathetic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards...and that in the darkest hour, love is the only true safe haven.
Now I have shared my book, I have to read it now. Hope this gets you ready for the book. A movie is already in works from the book.

First Charge: War a Good Warfare
1 Timothy 1:18-20
This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare.
Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck;
of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Wake Forest Holds Off ACC Rival Duke in 54-48
I went to the game today with 7 adults and 10 youths from our church.
We had a great time. It rained off and on all day but that just added to the drama.
Wake Forest has Duke, UNC and NC State has rivals. Since they all are in NC, people have so many different teams to pull for and call the home team. It was a back and forth game from the very first play. It can not get any better if you are a Wake Forest fan. Which I am! I worked there for 18 years and became a loyal fan. Just want to say how proud I am of the team we have. We have had 2 games so far this season and we have won both of them. Can't get NO better than that!
Go Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Christ Is Superior Because of His HumanityHebrews 2:16-18
For verily he took not on him nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be make like unto his brethren, that he night be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

1 Peter 3:15-18
For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
Honour all men, Love the brotherhood.
Honour the King.
Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear: not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

Establishing & Comforting
1 Thessalonians 3:1-4
Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone;
And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowshiplabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith.
That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.

For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Peter and Paul are put into Custody
And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captian of the temple, and the Saducees, came upon them.
Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

TRUST IN THE LORD AND BE NOT AFRAID
Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
Hide not they face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger; thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.

The Outer Banks in NC (OBX) is bracing for Hurricane Earl. His name is Earl and NO ONE wants him. My prayers and thoughts are with the Locals that have been blessed to live in such a wonderful place. I am constantly watching and listening to the weather channel. If God wills, I will leave there one day at Ocracoke Island. The entire OBX is under this warning. Hurricane Earl, Fiona, and posslibe another one is brewing up and heading our way. Please pray for ALL these people that maybe impacted.
He is what the people of Ocracoke has to look forward to.
A state of emergency has been declared for Hyde County effective 9 PM Tuesday, August 31. A mandatory evacuation has been issued for all visitors and residents of Ocracoke beginning at 5 AM on Wednesday, September 1.
The NC Ferry system will be on a first-come, first –serve basis for all vehicles open to Hatteras, Swan Quarter, and Cedar Island pending road conditions in those receiving counties. Schedules and toll collections are suspended during the evacuation order.
Emergency services, government agencies, commercial vendors delivering essential groceries and supplies, and permanent residential traffic as indicated by purple and green stickers will be allowed on the island via air and marine traffic. The State Highway Patrol may restrict access without appropriate credentials.
