make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn- shout for joy before the Lord,
the King. Psalm 98:4-6
Just a quick little Praise to the Lord. Our oldest daughter Emily has been taking guitar for about a year now and has really blessed the family by playing praise and worship for us during our devotions. With the new semester beginning I knew that we would have to take a break due to unexpected vehicle expenses over the summer. I fought in my mind about it but knew that the lord wanted us to be good stewards with our money and this was an area that we needed to let go. I talked with Emily and she was very mature and said she understood. I told her that if she continued to work at home then next semester we could put her back in. Well she went to guitar and told her teacher she would not coming for the next semester. She told him that she would return in the winter. I am sure he knew it was for financial reasons. He gave her a letter and told her to fill it out and bring it back. This letter was for a scholarship that they give to help with tuition. I was a little reluctant at first. We filled out the paper work and expressed to them that either way we would be back next semester. I had just told her today that I had not heard any news and to not be disappointed. She said, " Mom I know I will be alright." Well later today we got an e-mail that stated she would be receiving the scholarship. PRAISE THE LORD! I never see excitement in Emily and when I told her the news today she couldn't contain herself. I love how the Lord has blessed this faithful servant of His. This was a blessing for Emily not for Momma. Thank you Lord for showing me how much you care about my children. ( Well really YOUR children)

O.k. it is official I am getting older. Today while I was in the bathroom combing my hair guess what I found? Yep you guessed it a big ugly GREY hair. I couldn't believe it. I stood there for about five minutes with my face jammed in the mirror to make sure I wasn't just seeing a glare because of the lighting. nope there was no glare there was just one lone grey hair sticking out of my head.
So on my way to the grocery store I called my husband to tell him what I had found. He didn't have much to say as i don't think it affects men the way it does us women. My oldest daughter was with me and she just simply said, " Just remember what you always tell me it is just your next season in life." Such WISE words Emily.
