This weekend was the best and most spiritual weekend I could have ever imagined. I know my last post I relayed how devastated I was not to be at our nephews Navy graduation and though my heart is still  sore for not being able to be apart of that, the Lord did more than heal that wound with the experience He gave me instead.

It was experience that I have NEVER experienced before........

Lh_momentum_4Lisa Harper was our speaker during a women's event called Momentum at our Church. If you have never listened to Lisa speak before I totally recommend checking out her website. She is funny, hilarious and speaks directly form the heart. Sharing her story with us was truly inspirational!!

As Lisa was speaking, on the last day of our event, she was sharing with us a vision of dancing with our father, Jesus Christ. As she spoke we were to close our eyes and envision what we think Jesus would look like today...... khakis? polo? button shirt with a suit jacket? crocks? etc..... Then she guided us through the step of looking at his feet and placing ours on top of His, just as a little girl would when she danced with her daddy.

Usually I am looking around around the room, at this point, to see who actually participates in these things but this time I participated =0) with out looking around!

So there I am in my vision, looking down at the feet of Jesus Christ. I imagined them extremely clean being that He has been walking around on the streets of gold instead of the desert sands for quite some time now ;-) Though I can't imagine Him in anything other than sandals, yet I did imagine Him wearing a button up shirt with a suit jacket and a pair of khakis, lol. He was quite handsome and being that He is my daddy we shared the same brown eyes, dark brown hair and He of course still had His trademark beard ;-)

As I approach Him, I place one foot after another on top of His and just as I reach to hold His hand I looked to my right, where I saw Him again, only this time it was not me He is dancing with....

My friend Leslie.

She flips her short red hair around and looks right at me and says "look, look at me, I'm dancing, I'm dancing with our Father" Then she twirls around and around. She is more beautiful than I have ever seen her, she is wearing white, a beautiful very stylish white gown, her smile is brighter than ever and she is glowing, just beaming with happiness. She always had a grand smile and ever so often she would crinkle her nose when she got really excited about something......that is what she did every time she would look my way while dancing with our Father.

I know that it was just a vision, because Leslie passed away less than a month ago, but it was unlike any other vision I had ever imagined. It was so real, I didn't want to open my eyes, so I stood there watching my friend dance with Jesus, our Father, as long as I could. I knew I wasn't going to be able to compose myself much longer and I also knew at that very moment; this is why I wasn't suppose to be in Chicago. This is where I was suppose to be. This is what Jesus wanted me to see.

          Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day, thank you for blessing this day that you have given us. Thank you for giving me peace with the tragic loss of our sweet Leslie, thank you for giving me the very glimpse of confirmation that this situation was, and is, entirely in your hands and that you have never forsaken any of us during our time of confusion. Dear Lord, I pray that you can bless others the way you have blessed me, especially those that are still struggling, Lord, I pray that you can give them the peace that the are so longing for. Father God, it is only you that can heal such a wound Lord, and I pray that you have mercy on their anguish, heal the broken hearted, binding their wounds, Father God,  comfort those that still mourn. Lord, I pray that you show them the joy in your Glory that shines bright on the path that you have paved for those that follow and trust in you. 
Lord, again I thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. 
In Christ name I pray,

Psalms 31:9 
        O' Lord have mercy on me in my anguish. My eyes are red from weeping;
                                my health is broken from sorrow.
Psalms 147:3       He heals the broken heartened, binding up their wounds
Matthew 5:4         Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted.
John 14:27           I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give
                                is not fragile like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid.
John 14:18           No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm-I will come to 
Psalm 46:1          God is our refuge and  strength, a very present help in times of trouble.
Psalms 30:5      Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
