Faithful Fridays!!!!




Wow....Friday rolls around fast, doesn't it? I sure think so.

So, for this Faithful Friday, I'm thankful for two things (well, more than that): I'm thankful for getting to go to my, Aunt Betty's, and Uncle Richard's house. I LOVE my Aunt Betty's house!!!! We like to go shopping downtown, and it's SOOOO magical!!!! I love it! We like to go fishing, too! We're not going to fish this time, though....Too cold! I want to start stitching soon....ok, I'm getting off the subject. SO, I'm thankful we get to go.

For the second thing, I'm thankful for me, well, getting closer to my LORD. Last night, I realized that, sometimes, when I pray like GOD isn't one of my regular friends, I don't have faith, and I feel fake. So, last night, I closed my eyes, and put my mind on, GOD, and talked to him like a regular friend. I couldn't stop praying!!!!!! About...say...a good 45 minutes later my mom hears me say," I'm going to sleep, now, mom". Mom says "Ok....what have you BEEN doing? "Praying." I kept on, too!

Thanks for visiting!

Blessings,
Joy

Hi, Joy~I did Faithful Fridays, too.

I'm glad that you get to go to your Aunt & Uncle's house. I hope you have a great time! And, I think it is so wonderful how you talked to God like you would a friend. I'm sure that is how He would like all of us to do, because He is the best friend we could ever have!

You are a sweetie.

Hi, Joy!
Wow!, I can't believe you actually prayed for 45 minutes!!! That's almost an hour!!!
But that was very good to do that. And like your mom's comment that's right over mine,(I skimmed over a few minutes ago, LOL!!!) that is how you should talk to God.

LBF!!!
Love, Lyssie

P.S. The LBF means "love being friends.

Many days I find myself saying little prayers throughout the day. And when I lay down at night I start praying again and I always fall asleep :o( You are such an inspiration. Have a good weekend!
