I wanted to share with you all the value of a Diamond.
Two weeks ago at the Junior High Convention there was an altar call for all those who desperately wanted to change their lives.
Not just ask for peace and forgiveness but to walk away that day truly living in Christ. No more going back to the old ways. An altar call of True healing.
There were children in that room who were truly afflicted with guilt from pornography,depression,divorce and abuse and many who wanted to really live like Christ.
As I sat there in the front pew watching these children give their lives over to Christ and desperately seeking healing I felt the overwhelming need to pray over them all.I felt I needed to Walk amongst not only the children of Desert Stream but all the children there praying over them.
However as I was truly praying quietly in my mind a part of me was also wanting to pray outloud.Remember I wrote about trust, well fear was around me and I was focussed on other thoughts of wether I was going to say the right thing or would I look like a fool or better yet if I pray outloud was it correctly. I was thinking way too much.
I tried desperately to find comforting words but the flow was not there.
I asked God to help me.
It was then I looked down at my hand and realized my diamonds had fallen out of my ring. This ring was important to me as I bought it in rememberance of my mother.
Panic struck me as this ring was .50 karat and I had spent $1000 on it.
I prayed Lord Help me find the diamonds, forgetting about the children.
It was at that moment a sudden calmness overcame me and I stood, tears running down my face staring at all the children.
God found My Diamonds Your diamonds His Diamonds.
They were all around me....... The Children.
I didn't need a monetary object to remember my mother.I just didn't care that I lost what I thought was of value. Truly I didn't.
I began to pray outloud for the healing of the children and of myself for I realized at 45 years old I am one of Gods Children.
God asks us to come to Him as a child and at that moment I came to Him and he healed me of monetary love. I didn't even know I was so materialistic but apparently I was and he showed me. OUCH!
Soon after this I approached Brandy and told her. She replied "You lost your Diamonds" to which I replied yep and don't care because God has given me much more beautiful gems. The children.
We cried as we embraced and then I said "If the Lord wants me to have my diamonds back he will give them to me and if not that's ok too"
It was within a moment Brandy looked down ( appreciate we were now at least four rows back and at least 100 children were at the altar and several hundred were in the isles)and there shining underneath the front pew 3/4's away down from where this journey began was my diamonds.
And ladies there was a light shining on them.
He gave me back what I thought I needed but blessed me with what the true jewels of God are.
Praise you Father.
I now share with you God's gems.Your Children
Beautiful beyond words.

Hi ladies just wanted to update you on the progress of my Cousin Mathews daughter Angelina and his wife Maria's conditions.
Maria's white cell count is still high and the doctors still can't quite figure out what is going on with her.She is very tired but in good spirits and her determination to be with her babe is admirable.
She decided to sign herself out of the hospital so she could be with Angelina at the Neo-natal hospital. She feels her white cell count is just her make-up and is determined not to be seperated from her daughter. Please keep her in prayer that this is just part of her genetics.
Reading the book Nurture I can't say as I wouldn't do the same thing as our children no matter what age need to know their mothers from day 1.
As for Angelina she has dropped some weight,so she is now less than 1.5lbs. Maria is pumping and Angelina consumes 1ml per hour. 24mls daily that's less than 5 tsps.
Can you imagine. Wow!
But the exciting thing is she is very responsive to Marias touch and voice. She kicks and waves her tiny arms when she hears her mothers voice.
Shari all I can think of is Are you My Mother, it makes me cry at the thought of the bonding while even in the womb. Nurture between a mother and child does begin at conception.
Her diaper or nappie as Aunt Daphne calls it is half the size of a ladies handkerchief.
She is such a proud Grandmother and she wants me to thank all of you for keeping her family in your prayers and I thank you as well.
Still praying and when I receive more pictures I will post them so we can see the miracle of Gods healing.

Do you remember when you had your first A+
How excited your mother was. She walked around proud and told all her friends.
Didn't you hate that?
Then came the B, notice she didn't brag as much
With a C came worry as we were getting older
But I am here to say that today I received my first D
This is something I never thought I would ever see in my lifetime.
The course I was taking
New Bra shopping 101.
Oh to be a B student again.
But the funny thing was the lady in the store asked me if I attended Desert Stream?
She attended our church before and said she thought she had seen me and then she said
"I didn't know you were a Christian" with a surprised look on her face.
To which I replied Yes I am and my cup runneth over do you think you can help me?
But the best part was (after she stopped laughing) she replied
I DIDN'T KNOW CHRISTIANS WERE FUNNY
I have attached a picture to what I believe she saw through her eyes when I walked into the store. Funny how we as Christians are percieved differently.When people know we are Christians.
We are definately not supposed to be funny and then to wear a D cup that's just being Blasphemus.

Well Ladies after help from Vicki and Patti I understood what I had to do to post this.
So here goes.
Mona needs extra help.
Mona needs to be so triumphantly nasty that (like Cruella De Vil) just the sight of her makes you eager to see what she'll do next. ...
Mona needs a home
Mona needs to see a doctor
Mona needs to make a concerted effort
Mona needs a man who will love an except her for what she is ( Have That)
Mona needs now.
Mona needs to get out of this hell hole
Mona needs her own interview
Mona needs a mechanism for exporting transformations.
Mona will need to cope with what will be new
Mona needs to calm down and accept that there's nothing immoral, unwise, or unacceptable about consuming meat products.
Mona needs to believe in the existence of angels
Mona needs further exploration
Mona needs a new smile. ( Oh that must be for my cousin Mona-Lisa)
Mona needs to be put to sleep
Mona needs to take time off and relax with some television — perhaps her own show, so she knows what’s going on. ...
Mona needs some swimming lessons!
Mona needs to be a woman, not a girl. Especially not one with such an irritating voice.
And last but not least
Mona needs to have her head examined

It's 12:38am and I have just got home from work and have just gone through the blogs.
While reading them I realized that the communication between us is so very special.
To be able to share bits and pieces of our lives,our thoughts and our Fridges.
To pray for one another. (Thank you I am feeling much better)
To encourage one another
To make one another laugh or cry.
To enjoy the faith of a 3 year old being backwashed by his sister.
To appreciate a 100th post
To realize some boots are made for walkin (in Bancroft)
But most of all to enjoy and respect our differences.
Thank you for sharing your lives with me.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives.
But most of all thank you for being my friends.
Love and Blessings to you all
