I mentioned several weeks ago that I am running for our local school board. I have done very little in the way of "campaining." But tonight the Community Teachers Association is holding a "Meet the Candidates" night. Each of the board candidates was sent three questions and we will be given two minutes to respond to each question. Ladies, I would ask for your prayers today. I want the Holy Spirit to speak through me this evening. My desire is that tonight, others would see Jesus in me.
Yesterday our Pastor spoke on the importance of putting God first in our every day lives. Not letting the things of the world overshadow the eternal things. Yes we are in this world but we are not of this world. So please, if you would, pray for God to use me tonight, in some way, for His glory.
And for those of you who are wondering, there is still no change in my Grandma. She is still feeling good and exhibiting no symptoms of the cancer the doctors told us she had, praise the Lord! However, trying to provide 24 hour care has been exhausting. I am sad to say that very few family members have stepped up to help and those few of us who are helping are worn out. The nursing home is literally across the street from my grandma's house but, of course, she doesn't want to go. Please pray for His will in this circumstance.
