Now if I, the Lord and Rabbi, have washed your feet, you also should wash each other's feet John 13:14

It sure feels like spring today. I sure hope it decides to stay!
I'm leaning towards doing unassisted pregnancy and birth this time around. Its taken a lot of prayer and discussion with DH. And right now I'm in the research and studying phase. This is new territory for me. I was planning a UC with LO4 but I chickened out for about half a dozen reasons. But I was seeing a Dr during my pregnancy with him. So this is a whole new world for me and I'm just really hungry for info and stories right now.

Mothering mag had a few great articles about UCing. (I miss the mag) I hope you find what you are looking for. You are in the right place.

 

Spring was here today. We went for a long walk. Great day.

I've thought about subscribing to the mag. I'm sure it would be much more relavent to me than any of the free mainstream ones. But I really need to get actual books right now. Like midwifery text books and neonatal resuscitation.
We've been studying Identity in Christ... there's so much there. And its so hard to grasp the fullness of it.

Mothering mag is no more :( I was just saying that MDC is a good place to meet like minded people.:thumb Sad thing is that so many of the old people have left. So much wisdom is missing. Still their are great moms. I'm know that you will do the right thing & the Lord will be with you & baby.

 

Identity in Messiah. Do tell if you get a moment. Blessings.

Man! I shoulda gotten the mag years ago when I first found MDC!
Well DH did 4 messages, I think, on identity. Were trying to record them and start a face book page for the church. I don't even have a FB for myself so IDK, I guess we'll all just operate under the church's page. Anyways, DH was trying to get us to shift our mindset to Kingdom thinking. Like if we are Co heirs with Christ than we have nothing to worry about. Heirs to the king of England don't walk around worrying how they're gonna pay their bills or what anybody else thinks of them. We should only be worried about what God thinks of us and not try to gain the approval if any man. And LOVE is huge! The love of God should be flowing out of us, it should be undeniable that it is the love of God and not our own. He kind of used the verse where Jesus says to love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself as a starting point for it

And being an ambassador for Christ means that we are not of this world. We are to represent Heaven and wherever we go we carry the full authority of Christ with us!

The thing about LOVE is that it is a FRUIT & the highest LAW! Love pure love is so needed.

Exactly! When Jesus gave those two commandments, he actually raised the bar!

Crazy thing is going on with my eye. I just came home from the eye Dr. I need special glasses. My eye went from seeing normal to blurred over night. So they had me put on test glasses and now I just have to wait for the glasses.

 

What I'm going to do on Friday?

Its an attack! I've never heard of vision changing over night! I'm sure it happens, but it's gotta be pretty rare. I'll be keeping you in prayer.

I just happy it is not a stroke! And thank God that I have had the same eye Dr for 30+ years. He took me right away. AND believed me when I spoke to him on the phone.

 

He said that it might correct itself??  But in the mean time we ordered all new glasses at the VERY changed setting! WEIRD! Very weird.

What does it mean to be at Jesus Feet? Something I am thinking about.

I wanted to "talk" out my devotion.

 

I'm going to look at Mary. Each time he is at the feet of Jesus

LUKE 10:38-42

John -- Chapter 11 & 12:1-4

 

Mary is at Jesus feet to learn, worship and prayer. She is touching the feet of the Master and Rabbi.

We worship the Lord for who He is and what He has done.

To me, being at the feet of Jesus is an act of humility as well. She is demonstrating how unworthy she is, while recognizing who He is, and to be there was a privilege. The perfume was likely bought with money she had earned with her sinful lifestyle, and was in essence her treasure. Where your treasure is there your heart will be also. So by pouring out her worldly treasure on her Savior's feet is the ultimate act of repentance. This worldly treasure is no longer my hearts true treasure, you are Jesus. KWIM?

There is so much symbolic meaning in that story. You can get really deep!
Is your vision any better today?

I've seen that book, what's it about??

I just wanted to encourage you about giving the devotion lesson, In you weakness His power is made perfect! And, The Holy Spirit is the Teacher, so just let Him take over and you can't go wrong! Please let me know how it goes tomorrow!

Crazy Love:Overwhelmed by a Relentless God is about really living faith out. Serving a true God. Very good and true book.

It went very well! More then 30 people come. Some of my bible study friends come. AND the popular crowd was mad as normal. Funny how that works out.LOL My friend might have gotten some new customers. (nice for her) I am thinking of selling them myself? (maybe?)

 

The weather is so nice! The Lord is so good!

So glad to hear that. But I have 2 questions, why did the popular crowd get mad? And what are you thinking about selling?

Its a beautiful day here. My DH is over at the church building getting it all ready, and he was able to get 60 or 65 chairs, I can't remember which. So they're getting those today too! IDK how long until we'll actually start using the building, I guess it depends on how much they're gettin done today.

OH! Essential oils. Just something I was thinking about.

I don't know why the popular crowd gets bad shrug.gif They just do? It is weird. My friend from the Bible study asked me why the one lady was "sitting there so mad?"
