Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Just got back from bible study, weigh in and lunch. All were good. Gained .6 over the past 2 weeks and I am okay with that since I had expected much more. Bible Study as awesome today as we studied Joel and got a preview of Amos. The book of Joel is short but has a lot of info. We talked today about the world we are living in and comparing it to Israel and Jerusalem. A lot of us shared our fears and then we talked about the Beth Moore conference last Spring. A lot of people are afraid.

A lot of us discussed the fact that a lot of things we complain about are not necessarily the
government's fault, although its blamed enough. We prayed for our new leader (no matter who he is) and that God will work in the hearts of him now. Do you think we live in a selfish country? One of the lady's said she always felt that we lived in country that was blessed. She now feels we have taken advantage of God's gifts and we are now suffering the consequences. That as a country we are turning our backs on the One who created us. I will be honest. I am scared. Each week that we read a new chapter of the Bible, it just seems more and more real.

I am amazed that the word of God that has been read for hundreds of years all over the world is still so full of hope and direction.
My hope does come from God, and He is also my peace. I hope I demonstrate that. I need to be a light in a world of darkness. People are searching for peace and hope. People are afraid. It's time to run back to God. His arms are open. Why are we running from Him and away from Him?

Amy - do you read the blog "Confessions of a Pioneer Woman"? If not, you have to! I thought of you as I just read her post about her basset hound. I'm going to get me one of those puppies one day. Love them! Praying for your adoption story to be complete soon.
