People of wonder

I'm carrying my stuff to church in this new tote bag I just got Friday:

I saw it at Walmart...couldn't resist it.  Besides it was only $7.  For a long time now people in the church have called me "Wonder Woman."  It all started years ago  on my birthday when they were bringing a cake out for me at church to blow out the candles and the sound person played the theme from "Wonder Woman" as we cut the cake.  It sorta stuck and since that time people have given me Wonder Woman t-shirts, pajamas, mugs,etc.  

I enjoy being a "Wonder Woman" for God.  Any Christian woman can be a wonder woman.  Did you know that?  For that matter, it's not limited to women!  Men can be people of WONDER!

Hebrews 2:4
"And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose."

I am headed to church this morning excited about what God will do, confirming His message through signs, wonders and various miracles and gifts of the spirit through His wonder women and men of God!  All it takes is a a surrendered heart -- an openness to what He wants to do.  God can do ANYTHING!!!!

I had a very busy day yesterday with an AMAZING day at life coaching -- I'm talking an absolutely phenomenal day -- I believe sweeping life changes are going to be made in some women's lives and I couldn't be more excited for them.  After a great morning at Life Coaching I went home so that Larry and I could spend the rest of the day cleaning in preparation for the Superbowl and for his parents to come visit from Maryland on Tuesday.  In between all that cleaning, I fit 3 miles of biking in...in the pouring rain!  It was a mess out there but I felt so accomplished.  By the time I was done cleaning last night, just from walking around the house doing all that we did I took over 10,000 steps on my pedometer.  Yes, we worked THAT much.  I couldn't wait to sink into my big tub last night.


I am so thankful for all of God's blessings on me.  Every time I sit in my tub I think of my many friends around the world - in third world countries who have never known the joy of sitting in a bubble bath like this.  They don't even have clean drinking water. I have many people I actually count as "friends" who have to live this way.  They keep in touch with me personally, they are not just on a TV show or something.   It's my habit to always thank the Lord for this blessing that I have, and  pray a prayer for them.  Sometimes I question why I was ever born into such a blessed place as America.  I won't beat myself up over it, however I take it as my call to pray, and give as much as I can to help others who are not as fortunate.  So, I will enjoy my baths, but I will also spend the rest of my life helping others.

In other news, I can't wait for the Steelers to shred the Packers today. :)
