Lunch & Lunch

This weekend I will meet Annette of Annie’s Eyes Blog in person. We are having lunch at Ciro’s. I am very much looking forward to our meeting.

Sunday I am taking my father to lunch at Goode Company Seafood at his request. He wants to eat an oyster poboy. I don’t care for seafood. I see a beautiful, green salad for lunch.

This post is bittersweet because I am thrilled about meeting Annette in person and sad because my father has been told he probably has congestive heart failure.

I am so thankful we serve a Big BIG God. I not only believe in Him, I believe Him. To believe Him, I must know His word. Here are but a few verses on which I stand:

who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty

Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

So Sisters, I say remember God is a BIG, BIG God. A God Who loves us, Who understands our cares, concerns, moods (thought I would like to discuss hormones and why in the world he created mosquitoes and roaches), and temptations. Remember, not only must we believe in Him, we must believe Him!

I've been reading some Charles Spurgeon lately and one of his quotes is "Faith is precious and its trial is precious, too." I can't wait for tomorrow! Love, Annette

Your posts always encourage and inspire Annette. Have a wonderful lunch with both of those special people. I pray the Lord will bless the time you have with your Dad. I pray, too, that He will strengthen his heart.
Have a blessed weekend.

I hope you guys had the most wonderful time! One day we will do lunch! (It will be the longest lunch break in history...)

I will be praying for your dad. My scriptures this week talk about how trials are the opportunity to reflect Christ. Girl, I know you reflect Him.
