Peaceful and Satisfied!!

"I'm satisfied and at peace" was the phrase I kept thinking as i settled in to have some time with God. I was sitting in my new house, in the bedroom, in a comfy chair, a blanket covering my legs, and my little table on my side. I had my little handmade chapel from George Skyrock, my prayer journal from Haley Edmiston (it is from Thailand and it is the journal i used to write prayers in for Baby T, the first go around and it is time to pull it out again), my prayer journal that i'm almost finished with that Shanna French (one of the young wives we met at A&M church )gave me, my coffee cup from Debbie and Jim Murphy, my chai tea that Hannah introduced to me, and a candle. I thought i had it all when about that time I heard Haley start playing a sweet, quiet praise song on her guitar just in the next room. Ahhhh, my heart feels so taken care of. Thank you, Lord Jesus.

Those that know me well know i love books and resources. I went to the ACU library today looking for a resource and found some interesting reading.

1. Christian Counseling Today, Vol. 15, No. 4 is a wonderful issue on Relationships. Check it out. I have tried to find it online but couldn't find it. But i did find a wonderful article from another issue on prodigal children. http://hfbcshrinkwrap.wordpress.com/2008/01/28/rebellious-children-the-prodigal-of-piper/

2. Sacred Parenting, http://www.garythomas.com/. If this book is anything like his others, it will be very practical and have strong Godly teaching. The information on the back says it is not a how-to book but one that teachs parents how they will learn about God through their children. I have almost finished another one of Gary Thomas' books, Sacred Marriage and recommend it to both married and singles.

3. I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah I heard the author, Ravi Zacharias speak years ago on Focus on the Family and ordered the CD of his sermon that he has now written a book about. http://books.google.com/books?as_auth=Ravi+K+Zacharias&source=an&ei=saaJScjxNaKBtwfF2LmfBw&sa=X&oi=book_group&resnum=4&ct=title&cad=author-navigational
