Girlscout Cookie - Game Night

Daniel and I tried out the whole evite method of inviting some ACU students over for a game night. We served only Girlscout cookies. Yum Yum!! When we got up on Sat., 17th, we thought we might need to reschedule because we had only heard from one person. We had invited 33, knowing some couldn't come. Well, we decided from the history we have had with aggies we would go ahead and whoever came would be great!! Am I glad we did, 22 showed up. Some came in cars of 6-7 people. Great evening. We had a table of farkle, a table of catch phrase and the last word, and on the floor was of course 42!! Our house has been opened up to what God has for us and we are excited to have had these students. Janet and Philip Jergins joined us too!! What great friends, they kept cele for us from July to Dec. since we could not have a dog at the rent house. We feel blessed here in Abilene.

is for Banner, Beginning, Branch, Bread of Life

Not surprising, my friend, Chelsa and I decided we would teach about the names of God for our ladies Bible class this semester. I'm excited. Our class is small but we pray God will bring us who He wants us to have this experience with. It is quite a transition from the A&M church to our small congregation. We truly feel we are in a mission field and have much to learn. Haley Edmiston, who lives with us, told me yesterday, just get in there and learn. Good Advice. That is what I will do. We know God is guiding us and will show us what He wants accomplished with this community in Abilene He has called us to.

Banner: Exodus 17:15 Moses built an altar and named it The LORD is My Banner

: Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

Branch: Jeremiah 23:5 The days are coming,declares the LORD,
when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch,
a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land

Bread of Life: John 6:48 I am the bread of life

is for Advocate, All in All, Ancient of Days

As I unpack I find treasures. One of the treasures I found was a 3-page typed document entitled "Living and Praying in Jesus' Name". It has names for God in ABC order. This is a game I play with myself in the car or in situations that I need to distract myself. I start with A, and then B, on to C and end with Z - trying to think of names of or for God. Try it for yourself. Send me new ones!!

I John 2:1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin and if anyone sins,we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous Jesus.

All in All: Col. 3:9-11 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.

Ancient of Days: Daniel 7:13-14 In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Angel of His Presence: Isaiah 63:9 In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
