you never stand taller than when you are on your knees

Yesterday I bought a framed art with this quote in it. I declared it our family quote for the year. We must pray. We can try to make decisions and plan our lives and that is all good. I think the Lord expects us to plan and think ahead. But unless we pray and ask Him where He plans for us to go, what He plans for us to do, what He plans for us to not to do, we cannot be prepared for what comes our way. If we pray, when the trials and temptations come that try to hinder us as we are following Him, it is then that we can stand tall. "Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." Ephesians 6:13 That's what we have to do to say we have truly planned. Truly prepared. When we can say we have done all, it is because we have prayed.

I'm a Mover!

I was reading Beth Moore's blog and since I came in late in the "conversation" it took me awhile to figure out what she was talking about! She obviously asked whether her readers were movers or non-movers as far as furniture! One person said she had a friend come over and move things around for her then after her friend left she made pencil marks around all the items on her shelves so she would know exactly where to put them back! Funny! My things usually end up in different spots everytime I dust! And then Beth mentioned that some men don't even put their things down after work until they have seen their wife's face to make sure they are in the right house. The house I am in now doesn't leave a lot of moving options. That is very disappointing to someone that was raised that when you clean, you move. If it isn't moved it just doesn't seem as clean. The post brought back wonderful memories..... Larry hollaring out in the middle of the night when he went downstairs to get a drink of water and not knowing the furniture had been moved. (I was a night mover) Or having Robby come down the stairs the morning after the furniture had been moved and he'd stand there on the landing and cry because I had changed things. It was quite funny. I know, I am a horrible Mother for thinking so, but it just was... He does much better with change now. So, what are you? Mover? Non-mover? Daytime? Night-time? I have changed, but probably because of the house. It doesn't get moved as much and well, I am not a night mover any more. Everyone was in bed in those days... these days there's always someone up!
