One of the doctors came into work with this really cute bag. It's called an Envirosax. It is a reasuble shopping bag that made from light weight material that you can roll up and put in your purse. It is kind of like a windbreaer. I think we all think that resuable shopping bags are a good idea but we forget to use them or leave them in the car but these you can carry around with you. They can also carry 44 pounds! And they come in really great colors and patterns! The one on top is the one that I got.
You can save the world...one plastic bag at a time!

Make sure to check it out on their website at Environsax.com

A Prayer for Pastor's Wives

Mrs. Mary Mohler offered this prayer at the 2009 Southern Baptist Convention for Pastor's Wives.

Father, what an honor it is to lift up my sisters in Christ who serve as pastors’ wives.

Thank you for raising up these women to serve you in this unique and vital calling.

I pray your blessing upon each one—wherever she serves across our denomination.

May she be mindful of the role she alone fills in the church as the wife of the pastor.

May she take seriously the importance of respecting her husband, encouraging him, praying for him and loving him with all of her heart.

May she never underestimate the importance of watching well over the ways of her household as she seeks to provide a happy home environment that will be a welcome refuge for him from the pressures and perils of ministry.

If you bless her with the wonderful gift of motherhood, may she nurture her children in such a way that they not only love and follow you, Lord, but also that they come to love their life in a ministry family as she ensures they appreciate the privileges that are theirs in this special calling.

As she serves your church, may she enthusiastically develop and use the gifts and talents that you have already given her through the power of the Holy Spirit. May she foster a deep and abiding love for the people to whom you have called her to serve.

As the women of her church look to her as a mentor, and they will, may she seize that opportunity to reflect godliness, contentment, honesty, compassion and perseverance. In order to do so, may she embrace the daily discipline of being a serious student of your Word, committing it to memory and spending much time in prayer.

Guard her heart; guard her mind; guard her tongue; guard her feet as she seeks to not grow weary in well doing even as many of her completed tasks may seem to go unnoticed. May she truly do her husband good and not harm, all the days of her life.

Your word tells us that “the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the entire earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” I pray boldly that you will find us to be just that kind of people and that you will use us as ministry wives alongside our husbands to do great things for the kingdom for the sake of the Gospel and for your glory.

You also tell us that you are able to do “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” and with that in mind, I ask all of these things in the powerful and matchless name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Past Month

I haven't updated in a long time! Partly because I have been busy and partly because I forget to update!

The last month has been busy and fun. We had a 4th of July party at our house. We planned for lots of people because we have a huge backyard. But it rained, and RAINED all day. It started being comical about an hour before everyone came over when it was pouring! But we had lots of fun and I even made this Flag Cake.

This past week was Vacation Bible School. The theme was Boomerang Express. I helped with music and I think I might sing the theme song for the rest of my life.

Joe and I also have a new niece. Her name is Camden Rhys. She is beautiful. We went to Evansville on Friday night to see her and spend time with family and friends. Next time we go down hopefully I will see her awake!

I promise to do better at taking pictures this next month!
