As I have mentioned before, God is good.....ALL the time!! He has just been making Himself known to me in such a tangible way. He is making me brave for Him! He is giving me courage and strength to do and say things I wouldn't have done on my own! He is visibly working and moving in my own family and in our church family, and this weekend was no exception!
Our youngest son B, was "babatized" Sunday morning! He was SO excited to show physically what the Savior had done in his heart. I was awe-filled by how GREAT our God is and again at the miracle of salvation! My heart is near exploding with gratitude and love! Along with B, we had a mother, daughter, and son baptized as well. The daughter had been to our VBS and Our pastor and his wife went and visited them afterward. They all three came to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Scottie, the son, is on Lee's Cross Country team and has been a force of nature for the Gospel. When God changes a person, He CHANGES them! On top of that we had a family of four come forward to make public their decision to follow Christ as well!

God is SOOOO good!
The women of our church also did Cardboard Testimonies! It was one of the most powerful things I have ever witnessed and been a part of! God used every single one of those testimonies to minister to the hearts of the people who saw them. There was not a dry eye in the place! Every woman participating shared a part of themselves and that was very difficult for many of us! Again, He is giving us courage and strength to do and say things we wouldn't do on our own.
We will be doing it again for our 2nd Annual Women's Day Retreat on Saturday, September 12th at Lakeside Baptist Church from 9:00am-3:00pm! Please come and invite your friends! It's completely free and everyone is welcome!
To God be ALL glory, honor, and praise!
