A Great Deal

Its me again! Emily....
We have had some rain and thunder storms here in South Texas and that's pretty major for us.

So Sam and I will be traveling to Houston this weekend for my cousins wedding. And of course I freaked out because I didn't "have anything to wear." We all know that I probably could have found something but what is the fun in that? :) I was on the hunt last night at the mall. I NEVER go to the mall. I started off in Dillards, you would think good ole faithful Dillards would have had something...well ya they didn't. My poor husband I dragged him around the whole entire mall. We then hit about 3 different stores and nothing. Then I went to Macy's and they had all kinds of great stuff and everything was 40- 70% off! I bought a top and dress for $42.00. Dress was $27.00 top was $12.00!Here I am modeling the dress in the Macy's fitting room. Horrible pic! Sorry.

Going to get a pedicure! See you all later!

God is doing great things....

I am sure you are guessing and wondering where I have been in the last 6 months? I was kidnapped. Just kidding. I have been so busy and my life has been outta control. But, I have been SOO blessed.

Back in April we had our Beth Moore, So Long, Insecurity Simulcast and we had a BLAST! It was a great success!! We had over 200 ladies come and be apart. Woman came from all over the coastal bend area....Corpus Christi, Ingleside, Portland, Sinton, Aransas Pass. Woman's lives were changed! The Lord had his hand on EVERY aspect of this event.

The Lord told me that he was going make me into the christian woman he wanted. I learned so much after being in charge of this event. He definitely matured me in a number of ways! AWESOME TIME!

I don't have any picture of this event on my lap top. I will get them soon though and of course share them with you all!

Sam and I have been so blessed! Of course we have had to fight the enemy daily. We are now the Youth Leaders in our church. We have a team called The Unit. They ROCK! Our youth groups name is Power House....House of Praise, House of Prayer, House of Power. We are having our first event Friday night, June 25th called jclub (jesus club). It is just going to be a fun filled night with videos, music, games, food, skits. Would you all be willing to praying for us and this event?Pray that the Lord would use us to change these kids lives! Teach them disciple them......these kids are like the UNTOUCHABLE generation but, with Gods love and power and kindness we can through him touch their lives! These kids NEED Christ in their lives. That is one thing that my husband Sam is wanting to do with these kids is bring the WORD to them. We are going to do things alittle different. We have to meet them on their level. Your prayers would be so awesome!!!

These kids need to know that they can "Come as they are...." let the Lord change them from the inside out with his kindness and love. His kindness with bring them to repentance. Our pastor said this, this morning...."We need to stop looking at people with our eyes and look at people with our hearts." Chew on that.... :)

It has definitely been a roller-coaster these last few months. Life has happened. I am going to try and be better at this than what I have been lately.

Sam and I are going on vacation in August! Colorado here we come!!!! :)

You all are the best! May the Lord bless you and keep you all!

Ephesians 3:17-19

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

I wanted to share this song with you all. I love it! Gives me peace. Enjoy!
