I can't believe Thanksgiving is upon us and Christmas is around the corner. At Thanksgiving, I have so much to be thankful for. God has been so good to me this year as always. This past year was filled with some tests (which I pray I passed in God's eyes). I know the Lord was there all the time, comforting me, leading (when I would listen).
My family is healthy, safe and loving. We have our ups and downs but for the most part, I am very blessed.
I am never knew that God could take a little girl from OK, who didn't know have the finances to give much, could touch a few lifes. Through God, our ministry has touched almost 2000 lifes this year. If only for a moment, I and the other ladies in SEW BLESSED PILLOWS make a difference in someone's life, its worth all the work.
Thanks to all that make that happen.
I don't know if anyone reads this, but to you that might. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! and may God bless you!!!

Today I went to the Christ over Cancer Seminar at Woodlawn Church of Christ in Florence, AL.
I was touched at the testimonies not because of surviving (which is awesome) but their strength in God. Their faith was tested and they chose to press on like Paul in Phillipians 3:14-15 "I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore, let us, as many as are mature, have this mind, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you."
These people truly know God and their healer, Jesus Christ. No one else can give you the peace they have found. No drugs, no doctors, no nurses could give them what God has given them. The peace that passes all understanding.
Christ over Cancer has a book they give away for the asking. It is awesome. Please check out their blogspot @ www.christovercancer.blogspot.com You will truly be blessed.

The weather is getting cooler and fall is right around the corner. September is such a great month for me. Many of my loved ones have birthdays this month. One of my special favorites is the Kay County Free Fair (one of few left) begins this next week in my hometown in Oklahoma. It hold so many memories for me and many other in the community. When I was growning up, it was a great time to share with family and friends. The farmers had finished up working in the fields all summer, the women showed off their prized canning from the summer garden, and everyone enjoyed the rides and food. I worked in our Youth Group Church Booth selling charburgers, hmmmm good!!! (I probably talked more than worked!!!) Everyone complained about the smoke but oh the reward of the good charburger. One of the local farmers donated a the beef each year, so you knew where the meat was coming from, you didn't wonder!!! I think even the onion, tomatoes, lettuce was grown locally. Oh so good!!!!
Our little town has two great events in the fall that bring the families and former townspeople home. Kay County Free Fair and Homecoming. We have tradition in our town. The town is shrinking due to the economy and like other small communities. But I pray that the people that stay will continue the traditions of these events for us. With heartfelt sadness, I will not be able to attend either one, but ask my fellow Blackwellites to please, "Eat a charburger for me!!!"

The weather is hot and a lot of us are trying to stay cool by staying inside. I know I am every chance I can get. But remember even though we are staying inside this is a good time to write that note to a friend or loved one across the country or state you haven't seen in a long time or better yet call them.......turn your music up and clean that closet out and give those clothes you haven't been wearing to your local charity organization.!!! There is always things to do......
Have a glass of lemonade with lots of ice and enjoy the rest of the day that the Lord has made!!!

God continues to bless us. After my last post a couple of weeks ago, I prayed that God would supply my need to furnish the money for postage to mail the boxes that I had promised to people. Our God is faithful. That weekend, a wonderful friend from Oklahoma was obedient and mailed a check for just the right amount. It was the amount I needed to mail all the boxes to South Carolina, Nashville, Michigan, Montgomery, and Texas.
This past week, a woman called to say they were opening up a cancer center in Garland TX and would like to have our pillows to distribute to their patients. I was overwhelmed.!!!!
Come June 1, 2011, if we give out 50 more pillows, we will have exceeded this year alone what we gave in 2010!!!!! How awesome is that!!!! My little ladies have been busy.....I am so proud of them.
I wish that cancer was not a part of any of our lives, but until it is destroyed, I am so thankful we can bring a little bit of comfort to people in a time they need it.
Remember our GOD is faithful!!!!!! ALL THE TIME!!!!!
God bless you.!!!!!!
