Sunday at Moms and Sunday Prayer

My sweet Mom is so kind to fix Sunday dinner after church every week. She always makes a delicious and healthy meal for us. The boys look forward to Sundays at Grandmas! (Or 'Grandmall' as Caden calls her.) Thanks Mom for all you do for your kids and our families. Thanks for sharing some of your beautiful blooms!

A prayer for our country in this financial crisis...
You Have Our Attention, Lord

A prayer by Max Lucado - October 2008

Our friends lost their house.
The co-worker lost her job.
The couple next door lost their retirement.
It seems that everyone is losing their footing.
This scares us.
This bailout with billions.
These rumblings of depression.
These headlines: ominous, thunderous -“Going Broke!” “Going Down!” “Going Under!” “What's Next?”What is next?
We’re listening.
And we’re admitting: You were right.
You told us this would happen.
You shot straight about loving stuff and worshipping money.
Greed will break your heart, You warned.
Money will love you and leave you.
Don’t put your hope in riches that are so uncertain.
You were right.
Money is a fickle lover and we just got dumped.
We were wrong to spend what we didn’t have.
Wrong to neglect prayer and ignore the poor.
Wrong to think we ever earned a dime.
We didn’t. You gave it.
And now, tell us Father, are You taking it?
We’re listening.
And we’re praying.
Could you make something good out of this mess?
Of course You can.
You always have.
You led slaves out of slavery,
Built temples out of ruins,
Turned stormy waves into a glassy pond,
and water into sweet wine.
This disorder awaits your order.
So do we.
Through Christ,

God will always give what is right to His people who cry to Him night and day, and He will not be slow to answer them. (Luke 18:7 NCV)

See Max Deliver This Prayer at It is even better coming from him!

God Bless!

We also go to my parent's (Bubba and BoBo as Trey calls them) every Sunday after church. Everyone in the family comes and then we have to stay around and visit for at least an hour. Then it is off to Sunday naps!
I also love the prayer. This is a time when we need to live with in our means, make sure we are giving back to God and trust in his word!
Thanks for the great reminder. Have a wonderful day!

Beatiful prayer. It is so true, money has become so many peoples God that now that they are lossing it they don't know what to do. When it is so simple, all they have to do is turn to God and ask his forgiveness.
Thanks for sharing.

Hey, I thought of you Monday when I was at Walgreens. I got a $10 razor (even at Walmart) for .99 cents by using a Walgreens and the Manufacturers coupon. Lovely!
