I just got back from Pastor's School/ Educator's Convention.  It was such a great blessing.  I got to hear many great men of the faith and attend hands-on classes in different areas.  My biggest problem in my Christian life has always been prayer.  I try very hard to do what I know what I should do but I fail everyday.  I say the quick God bless my food prayers and I ask God to help people who need help but I don't seem to be very good at having long conversations with God. 
One of the sessions I attended was entitled "Why You Hate To Pray" by David Gibbs III.  He talked about the reasons we hate to pray and I suddenly understood something.  I wasn't the only one.  I am just like everyone else.  Bro. Gibbs said, "The only way to have a great prayer life is to have a great prayer list."  This struck home to me.  I will be working on a great prayer list.  I already have many things I pray for everyday but I need a more detailed list.  A list that pinpoints the areas of life that really need help.  I am so thankful that God showed me how to talk to him and I can't wait to get started on this great journey.

One really nice thing about living in the midwest is that there are actually 4 seasons.  Pretty soon it will be spring.  I can't wait to start doing yard work and fixing up the outside of the house.  My husband has been working very hard on the inside.  The dining room is almost finished.  We plan on moving the dining room table and some other furniture for the dining room this week.  It will be so very nice to have a real table and another room finished in the house. 

Kyndra had a third birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese last night.  She is such a delight.  She picked up the card from Beth and said,"Oh boy!  A card....with no money."  It is so hard raising a smart kid! 

All I can say is I LOVE MY LIFE!
