Psalms...

I was reading Psalm 20 today and one verse (4) really struck me...

"May he (God) give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed."

I am thankful for this trip in many ways and for many reasons. One being that I am alone and can share openly with the Lover of my soul what my heart's desires are. My desire to be in full time ministry, my desire to leave my job, my desire to pour into my youth girls this last year before they graduate, my desire to read my bible and know him more, my desire to be married, my desire to serve him wherever and in whatever capacity...thie list goes on. What a blessing and deep life giving peace to know that the Creator of my being loves me more intensely than I'll ever know and He above anything or anyone else WANTS to give me the desires of my heart...even when I don't deserve anything.

Anita,
When we were in London, Lynn found a condominium that was let by a broker. It's a bit like renting a beach house. Someone owns it but only uses it for a few weeks a year. The rest of the time it is rented. We had a nice three bedroom condo with a clothes washer and dryer, dishwasher, etc. I was talking with your mom and she said to mention it to you.

Love , Jim

Anita,
As I read your letter, I have to confess I am a bit envious. At this stage of my life (husband... children... business...)time alone is a rare occurance. One on one time with our Lord is a precious blessing so grasp it... soak in it! We continue to lift you to His throne, especially for safety. Blessings, Judy S.

Your are going to be a wonderful wife. I pray that He will make "him" known to you soon. Make sure to ask people for help in London--you deserve a prince!

I have watched to many bollywoods. I can see it know---man meets woman as she is lost in London...man starts dancing by the fountain in Trafalger square...woman rolls in the roses by the castle...Man asks family to marry you....after another duet of love...marriage no dating necessary!!!

Amen! I praise the Lord that you had this time with Him to soak Hm in and to sit in His lap...although I must admit I'm envious as well. It is harder to crawl up into the Father's lap in "normal" life. I praise the Lord that He helped you stay focused on the fact that you were in a time of sojourning and growing in Him!
