Faith is when....


I saw this at a store in Warm Springs, GA when we were there for the lights this year and pointed it out to David and Jacie. They bought it for me. I just love it!


Last night, Sydney and I were having our "mommy and me" time at her bedtime like we always do. This time she asked for a story about me as a kid and my favorite Jesus story. She wanted a story similar to the one when I lived in Mobile, AL at the age of two (2) where I stripped down to nothing and ran to my next door neighbors asking for a cookie. So, I told her the story when I was picked up by Tudy and Papa in Mobile, AL when mom and dad were sick with the flu. It was at that time when I weaned from nursing. (Sydney thought it was weird to still be nursing at two (2) years old.) My first meal was grits! Love them still!


The next story was about faith...The Miracle of 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread in Matt 14:14-22. I thought it was interesting that this would be my favorite story but it is a story of faith just like my sign that David and Jacie bought me. Have faith to feed the 5000 men (not including women and children) with just the 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread from a little boy. It reminds me that we have the faith and Jesus Christ will provide. It reminded me of a story where this women and her son had only enough flour and oil to make her last meal and die. Then this man came to the door asking for food. She feed him and did not have anymore food for her family. After the man left the next day she went to check the container for flour and their was just enough there for her to make a loaf of bread for her family and this continued until the season changed and food was available. This is 1 Kings 17:7-16 paraphrased about Elijah and the widow.
