30th Day Of Daily Prayers: Praying With My Best Buddy

Jan
31

3OTH DAY PRAYERS

It’s been awhile since I updated you on my daily prayers with my best buddy.

Well, we’ve been continuing on with that – no matter what has happened in our lives! Despite the fact that we are miles away from each other and have totally different schedules.

We work around them no matter what time we have to pray, and for me no matter if I have to pray out in the cold or in the bus because we have no cell phone signal inside the house. (And we are currently sleeping in the bus until our house is remodeled.)

I have to go outside only when we are late for our daily prayer. That is because my grandpa usually goes to bed around 8:00 pm and when we can’t pray at 7:00 I have to go outside to talk so I don’t keep him from sleeping and also sometimes I might have to go outside so that I can keep a cell phone signal! Out in the woods, there isn’t very good service most the times!

I will start with our 12th day of prayer as I’d like to tell you all about our past experiences while keeping dedicated to daily prayers together. Well, God tested us on our 12th night of prayer: Cameron lost his phone charger earlier that day and he had no way to call me for prayer time! His parents were using their phones, his brother’s minutes are limited, and no house phone! What were we to do?

MESSAGE OUR PRAYERS?

I was a bit skeptical of this option at first and was about ready to just give up. I was crushed inside…. both of us were. It was so disappointing to think that we might not be able to pray that night, so we prayed with the only option we had – Facebook messaging! It wasn’t nearly the same as praying with each other over the phone, but it was still prayer with each other at the same time, and I believe with everything in me God honored it.

Was it different? Yes. But I still believe that God heard us and perhaps he was teaching us a lesson that night? Maybe he was trying to show us how blessed we are? With having the option to call each other and pray for and with one another here are some things we are to be thankful for.

Communication

Being able to talk and hear, also being able to call on a phone, another form of communication. God sure did open our eyes on that one, but we sure are grateful that we are blessed with such a very great form of communication.

OUR 13TH DAY!

Cameron found his charger and we were able to call and pray with each other again. That was something to be praising God for! Was the lessons taught on our 12th night of prayer intended to be:

Imagine not being able to talk?

I sure felt that way. We are blessed that we can come together to God through that and also being able to open our mouths to speak words and thank him with our tongues.

I have been used to going to bed at around 9:00pm, but for a few nights I had to stay up late in order to be able to pray with Cameron. On our 17th day; however, I was up at 11:17 pm out in the cold to pray with him and didn’t get back to sleep until around 12:00 am. I was so tired and just ready to give up and thought that for sure this was the end of our prayer time now.

I sent him a text saying I just had to go to bed, couldn’t fight the sleep anymore. Moments after I sent him that, he texted back and I asked him if he could call me then and he said yes. So reluctantly I drug myself out of bed and said,”ok then, CALL.” It was prayer to God with my best buddy.

I couldn’t disobey God. He was dealing with me so strongly I had to get out of bed and keep my promise not only to my best friend, and to God but to myself.

It’s been a great blessing for both me and Cameron being able to pray with each other, getting to come closer to God and with each other! That’s another thing that’s amazing about praying with a best buddy over the phone, though in reality he is miles away. When I’m on the phone praying with him, not only can I feel the presence of God there with us, but also I can feel my best buddy’s presence as well. It’s as if he is right there beside me while we pray – it’s amazing.

 

A word from Cameron about our Daily Prayers:

 

“The past 30 days of prayer has been revealing in many ways. I have seen the support and dedication of a true friend. I have experienced a stronger relationship with my Lord God and I have learned a lot about myself. For me, it has been proven that prayer is potent, essential and powerful. And we proved it BY praying! True it has only been just 30 days; however, may I say that doing this was indeed the perfect way to start the year and I am excited to continue our daily prayers.

We prayed for many things over the course of this month including ourselves and others who had requests for us. It is truly amazing to be able to call your buddy and pray with him/her and I would encourage you to try it. It shows that you genuinely care and it helps you learn to love. We need to learn to look out for  each other and prayer is a perfect place to start. Remember, the opposite of love is not hate, but apathy.

I hope that this blog has had some sort of effect on you and motivated you to go out and pray. Please do! It is a wonderful skill to be able to communicate with our God and we should be taking full advantage of that skill. Thank you for reading this. God Bless.” 

Sincerely,

Cameron Wilkinson

 

Prayer time with each other just keeps getting better and better for us! We hope that we can continue our daily prayers with each other for a LONG time (no matter what) because it’s been a great part of our lives and we also hope that this blog post might encourage others to do the same! Prayer is important. All it takes is three steps!

 

“Bow your Heads

Bend Your Knees

and…

Just Pray!”

 

It’s been a great 30 days and we hope that we can have another 30 days of prayer together – and many more! It’s such a great blessing being able to come together over the phone and thank God, ask him for his guidance and to help us with our needs, and also to help others with guidance and their needs as well.

If you have any prayer request please feel free to leave them in the comments or by my “contact page“.

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Be Strong!

Jan
30

What else does it mean to be strong? Where does true, real, pure and whole complete strength come from? It’s SIMPLE  If you have joy, you then have strength, but what joy do you have? The Lord’s joy! If you have his joy deep within your soul then let me tell you people his strength will flow within you and you’ll be spiritually uplifted and no devil in hell can get you down! But how do you get his joy? Where does it come from? It’s so hard these days to share God’s word with everyone, to share words on faith, strength, believing and joy. But why? I’ll tell you why, because life is hard, and our flesh controls, keeping us from believing in something with all of our hearts, but just put a smile on your face and let his joy be your strength.

Sun 3

“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 K.J.V.

 

In these days, we all need to have his strength and we all need to be overflowing with his joy, his spirit of bubbling joy, if you aren’t bubbling with joy then your not letting your light shine! And if your not letting your light shine your not sharing hope in everyone, and if your not sharing hope in everyone then the world is just that much darker. Let his joy overflow in you so that others can see it through you and through you they might come closer to God because of that, but when you aren’t beaming with joy and your light isn’t shining then how is anyone going to come closer with Jesus? How will they find him through you if you just look all glum and gloomy, you can dress it up and you can try your best to make up God’s spirit but let me tell you, if it doesn’t come from deep within and you aren’t trying with all your heart to be a witness for him then it isn’t coming from God it’s a bunch of man made garbage.

 

BELIEVE

 

“Don’t think, BELIEVE. If you believe you can do.”

 

KEEP STRONG, HANG IN THERE.

Here I go again with believing, to be strong you must also believe. Believing is everything, it’s seeing, it’s doing and it’s experiencing. The good and the bad, because through your struggles you have gotta keep strong and just keep moving on no matter what trial may be thrown your way. How do you keep strong? With the joy of the Lord! How can you withstand whatever trial that might come your way? Put on the whole aromour of God so they you can stand against the wiles of the devil! With his word as your sword, his joy as your strength and belief in these things you can do the impossible, you can do all things through Christ’.

I know there are many people out there in this world right now facing a struggle, there is a mountain in your way that appears it is unmovable, but the scripture says that with the faith of a mustard seed, that mountain will be moved! Any of you ever seen a mustard seed? Look at how small those things are! For man alone everything is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

YOUR NOT DONE FIGHTING YET!

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Life Is Simple

Jan
29

Yesterday I talked to you about being honest. Well, today I’d like to discuss with you about life being simple. It’s quite simple really, not that hard to follow through with and even though you can’t see simplicity, you can still touch it.

Simple

I was reading in my Bible about all the different things God had to say about being simple. Well, a prudent man sees evil and hides himself, but a simple man shall pass on and be punished. But I’m not meaning that kind of simple – the word means many different things. Some synonyms are: plain, homely, naive and artless. I’m not necessarily discussing being simple, but instead how life can be simpler than what some of us may make it out to be.

In one’s life, troubles will come and they will pass. You just can’t forget that there is someone up above, someone watching over you. If you let him lead you, he will. He’s gone before you in every dark place you go. He is our mighty defender. the great God Jehovah – he is our defense!

In the quote I wrote above, what I’m trying to say is that I know life can be hard and when you think about it, it really isn’t that simple in any way, but that’s only because you can’t see the simplicity around you because it’s hidden behind all the hard events going on in your life. But just like my favorite scripture in Psalms 118:24 even though you think the day may seem bad, there is still good in it and even though you can’t find simple, it is there and it doesn’t mean it isn’t reachable for you.

I know it can get hard and the road can seem long but you have just got to keep moving on. Don’t give up! Never say never, and let your heart lead you around. Your heart can lead you to any place. Just look toward heaven ask God for guidance and he will take you to where you need to be. Things may not seem simple during this process but rest assured they will be, because life is simple. We just make it too complicated to live most of the time.

Peace and serenity are all around us, but the schedule of most can make this peace and serenity vanish in the background, unnoticed, because of how rushed life can be. Sometimes we need not rush into this life and just enjoy the simple things God offers to us instead.

 

BREATH OUT

Breath out the complications in life.

 

BREATH IN

Breath in the simplicity of life.

 

Even if you can only find a moment or so to do this, make the time and you will feel much better. Like I talk about constantly, this is the day that the Lord hath made. It’s good because Jesus is in it! And once you breath out the complications in life, you’re making room to breath in the simplicity of life.

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Liars!

Today I’d like to talk to you about LYING! And what it means these days to people “Keeping Their Word” and what it used to mean.

My grandparents have always taught me that your word is your bond. If you don’t keep your word to someone then you won’t be very respected.

Lot’s of people today though, and throughout all my life have never believed the same principals my grandparents taught me. Not even most church going people! Why? Why is it that people won’t keep their word? Why is it that when they say something to you that a lot of times they never seem to come through?

Well, there are many excuses for that question:

Something else came up that I couldn’t control

It slipped my mind I completely forgot

I thought it was another time

The list goes on and on and on…

I was reading in this book written by C.S. Lewis that my best friend ordered for me. In the first chapter he talks about the natural law in our hearts. He discusses how people are constantly haunted by the desire to do what is right. People invariably defend their actions by arguing that those actions do not really contradict a basic standard of behavior, or that the standard was violated for good reasons. There again – excuses from people! Everyone knows deep in their heart, the difference between right and wrong but because of so many excuses in this world they fall back on those and let it slide and think in their mind that they really haven’t done anything wrong.

Oh, but how they are so wrong! It affects everything, yet people still make promises and end up not being able to keep them, but like in “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis when the time comes for you to keep your word to them if you don’t normally no matter what the circumstance for you was they become furious because you just lied to them and you broke your promise. So where does the lies stop? How do you keep your promise to someone who can never keep their promise to you? Why would you keep your word to someone who is always making excuses about not being able to keep their word to you?

The Bible Says:  

 

“But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.”- 1 John 2:5 K.J.V.

 

There you have it: a man that keeps his word in him is the LOVE of GOD. Does that mean that those who don’t keep there word doesn’t have the love of God in them? Not entirely, but maybe it just means they don’t have as much of it as they should have. Someone who has a great amount of God’s love in them should constantly be striving to be more like him. And how can we be more like God? Living a clean, holy and righteous life. Do you think in a life like that there is, lying, word-breaking, excuses? I think not. It doesn’t matter what comes up or happens. If it isn’t something vitally important then it’s NOT so important that you can just throw away the word you gave to someone else.

 

BE RESPECTED! NOT DISHONORED.

 

“An honest man is a respected man”– James Fickle

 

Have a blessed day people, and remember: your word is your bond. When you make a promise to someone that’s your word and if you break that word your breaking your bond. If you break your bond then it means your word is no good and neither are you. You are not to be trusted or dealt with. This is how people believed back in the old days, but today people are too lazy to care – about anything.

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Care

Jan
27

Today I’d like to talk to you about caring, sharing, and of course BEING A LIGHT! I believe that you can never talk too much about being a witness and an example for God because the bible says that he doesn’t just want us to go out and witness to others, he want’s us to BE a witness!

I’d been surfing the internet and found this picture, I thought it was neat. I’d like to talk to you about something that happened yesterday why my mom and I were at town. We were making our way to Wal-Mart when we came around this entering the parking lot and there was this elderly woman walking up that hill, it was cold, damp and raining out. It just made us all feel so bad, that was an awful sight to see. We hate it when we see something like that, but yeah I know in these times picking up someone can be scary.

Nevertheless mom turned around and asked the lady if she wanted a ride, in response she said since we were so sweet she guessed that she would go ahead and let us. She told us that she was just trying to see if she could remember how to get around and we made it back to her sons house, she began to thank my mother for the ride home and said that her family doesn’t like it when she just takes off walking, they told her that she has dementia, she then proceeded to say –

 

“Well I’m not gonna let something like that keep me from living my life, I’ve always walked around everywhere, the streets all have names on them and I can get around just fine like I always have.”

 

If only we could all have that kind of attitude, the determination to not let anything get in our way of what we want to do, our dreams and our goals, imagine what we could get accomplished if we had just one small percentage of faith in God like he has in us.

I decided to tell you this little story today, because it sure was something that warmed my heart and made me think of being a light in a cold dark world. Think about people, you can look the look all you want, you can talk the talk as long as you want as many times as you want, but if you aren’t letting your light shine no matter where you are in life or what it is that your doing and if you aren’t letting God’s joy shine through you, then let me tell you. Your light is not shining to the glory of God.

If your at the grocery stores and look all dead, when others smile at you and you don’t smile back at them or if others compliment you and you don’t thank them or say something nice in return let me tell you people, your light isn’t shining to the glory of God and to me that is keeping your light hid under a bushel!

It’s not something that you can just pull out of your closest like it’s your newest outfit, it’s something you’ve gotta have on you all the time, not just in church but everywhere! Because what good is the church if the church is just a church? What good is the church people if the people are just church people? In the book of Matthew Jesus didn’t say he came for the righteous or to sit with the righteous, he came for the sinners, he ate, drank and sat with the sinners, he told us to go out into the highways and hedges people and let our light SHINE!

 

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”- Ephesians 4:32 K.J.V.

 

CARE

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Feeling Discouraged?

Jan
26

In this day and time I know for many Christians, it is often easy for us to become saddened, depressed, discouraged, emotionally, physically, mentally and just spiritually drained. But here is where the good comes in, because think for one second if you will. Why is it that you are sad? What is making you feel discouraged? Is there a reason? Well if you have a reason (whatever it may be), God has laid this on my heart to remind you: Do not fret, for GOD is in control – and he is taking care of business!

SSun

If God is for us, people, who can be against us? AMEN! Yesterday I talked about standing your ground, not backing down and not letting others break ya, but letting them help to make ya!

Now onto what might come from those who oppress God’s people on a day-to-day basis. You’ve gotta keep your head high and remember the word that says God is for us! I talk constantly about him being on the throne “Taking Care Of Business” – and oh, he is! I know when we are going through a difficult situation in life we may question God as to why we would have to endure such an event.

 

“I undertand the feeling of not knowing, I understand the hurt that you must feel, but you have gotta keep strong, keep hanging in there, your not done fighting yet. Pick a side and stick with it.”– Nathan Tune

 

As hard as it may seem, we have to believe in God and trust him to lead us through the difficult time in our life, and he will. I know that he has for my family every time, even when it seemed so dark we could still see the light and when God moves he MOVES people let me tell you that!

The quote above comes from an email that my best friend sent me during my struggles with my mom. Those words have stuck with me every since and I use them now to encourage others in many different ways.

OVERCOME

Hold on with all your might, no matter how bad the situation may seem. Rise through the fight and OVERCOME! Just keep on saying that a blessing is on it’s way. Believe and you will see; have faith and it will be. Triumph over this hard time in your life and rise above with great love. I’m sure you’ve had many other hard times in your life – and I’m sure you have more blessings then problems right now. Be strong in the Lord, never give up hope. You’re gonna do great things. I already know!

If you know deep in your heart that it’s not your first time down this hard rough road then you know that God made us to stand BOLD! Just keep on believing, keep strong. You’re not done fighting yet, people, so remember that: pick a side and stick with it!

God is right there for you. Don’t ever think that he’s left you. These bad things that are happening to you now will all have a meaning to them in due time. So do not be discouraged, afraid, depressed or saddened. I know it’s hard not to be, I can often get discouraged myself, but if there’s ever a broken soul out there it needs God’s people to be there for them. And that’s just what who we are!

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD!

He has gone before us and he KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING!

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

“I Won’t Back Down”

Jan
25

Since I first heard this song I just fell in love with it! Johnny Cash – “I Won’t Back Down

ME11

I started singing this song just awhile back – and I will continue singing this song for the rest of my life.

I know there are times when people will try to push you against the wall. They’ll even knock you to the ground! But here’s where the going gets rough, which means – you’ve got to get TOUGH! I like to take this song and use it while saying this message to those who are discouraged or feel like they are at a loss.

A message that God gave me awhile back in the year of 2011….

I began to realize it always seemed like people think that by belittling you and by trying to make you feel degraded that they can break you.

If you look up to the right of my website in the header it reads a quote I wrote and the words came to me early in the morning one day late in the night. I believe it was between 3 and 4 am. Back then there wasn’t much sleep for me – constantly worrying about my mom and where she was, if she was ok and praying she be safe, kept me up at night.  Songs were starting to flow out of me I was playing the guitar and messing around listening to the different chords when all of a sudden the words came to me:

 

“Don’t let others break ya! Let em help to make ya!”– Nathan Tune

 

Along with this message: people will try to put you down, tell you that your nothing, but you can’t let them win! Don’t let em break ya! Let em help to make ya! No matter what people will say to you, you can’t allow it to get to you because there are events in our lives that happen that makes us much stronger then we were before. Some people  may experience these struggles more than the rest but nevertheless, keep strong and let them help to make you!

I say this for those of you who may feel bullied by others in your life, whether it’s at work, in college or public school even church – wherever you go there is going to be some rotten apple out there trying to spoil your day. But what if we remove that rotten apple from our life? How can you remove something that’s so terribly bad? It’s simple really.  If you let something get to you so badly, then the bully is winning anyway, but you’ve just got to be strong and not let the doings or words this person dishes out affect you.

God’s Word Says:

 

“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”-Deuteronomy 31:6 K.J.V.

 

So you see friends, don’t be afraid. God is right there with you by your side. He will not fail you and he will see you through!! God is in control and on the throne as I like to call it  – TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS!

To my mother, especially, as she’s going through some difficult struggles with people right now and to everyone else who may be struggling with the same situation, I ask that you remember these words and DON’T BACK DOWN!

 

“Well I won’t back down, no I won’t back down, you can stand me up at the gates of hell but I won’t back down. Gonna stand my ground, won’t be turned around, and I’ll keep this world from dragging me and I won’t back down.”- Johnny Cash

 

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

I REFUSE!

Today I would like to talk more about stepping up to the plate and taking action! Not just talk and pray about it but really take action to go along with the teachings that you receive from your Sunday church studies. I follow this artist named Josh Wilson. I first found this Christian singer/songwriter during my struggles with my mom just leaving us the year of 2010.

A few months later (after much sadness and heartache) I was finally able to accept what had happened and I realized that I just had to KEEP MOVING ON – no matter what.

Sun 2

By living like you don’t care about the world around you is hiding your light! Sitting around and waiting for others to come around and do what God has called you to do yourself is hiding your light! Many times we see a situation or an event that is taking place and God moves on us to do something about it but often because of either fear or because of our fleshly weakness being afraid that the situation might be too difficult for us to handle. But that is where we forget to remember the scripture in the bible that says:

 

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”- Philippians 4:13 K.J.V.

 

You have heard me countless times discuss how too many Christians are hiding their light; they aren’t doing the work for God as they claim to be and quite often they turn away from all the troubles and heartaches of this world…. Why? Why is it that we turn away from things such as poverty, domestic violence, famished adults and children, homeless veterans, abused elderly, beaten, abandoned and broken children? Why do we turn and shield our eyes from such things? The question, my friends, is not why – it is how? How could we turn away from the events that are taking place in this world which we live every day?

Because it’s too hard to look at for some, it is heartbreaking and sometimes so graphic it’s hard to examine for those with weak stomachs. The pictures of things men have done to women, or that both men and women have to the kids is absolutely heart-wrenching. But just sitting they’re examining the events that are taking place isn’t going to get us anywhere, people! We’ve got to make a stand and REFUSE to wait around for someone else to do what GOD has called us to do ourselves!

People, we are the hands and feet of God – get up start walking! Lend his helping hand to those in need! The broken-hearted children are something that hits very close to home for me. I pray for those hurting abused and destitute children and I REFUSE to just sit around and wait for a change. I intend to do my best to make a change!

 

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.”-Gandhi

 

Be the change you want to see in the world people!

REFUSE!

Give it up for Josh Wilson – “I Refuse”

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Journey SLOW, Don’t STOP Believin’

Jan
23

Screen shot 2013-01-21 at 7.01.25 AM

Today I would like to talk to you about Believin‘ Once again, but in a different sense actually. I’m sure most of you were quite taken back from my blog post yesterday as I try to keep it inspirational and encouraging, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to share a funny story with everyone in hopes of giving them a laugh. It sure was a funny event for me!

But today I am getting back to my usual encouraging, inspirational posts. The photo above is a picture of each side of this two-sided stop sign my grandma bought me from a roadside flea market here – in the great state of Texas, that is! Well, when she brought it back to Missouri, it was just a regular SLOW/STOP sign… I already knew what I wanted to do for the STOP side of it but I had to think a little bit for the SLOW side.

And then it came to me: the song that comes from the band “Journey”( Don’t Stop Believin’) is a favorite song of mine, so I looked at the slow side again and I thought to myself. “JOURNEY SLOW, DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’!” – it was perfect!

Journey Slow…

I’ve talked about how you should journey slow, take your time, enjoy the beauty of God’s creation – which is all over the place. Everywhere you look you can see his glory, in every aspect of nature. But if you turn to the world, as in the cities or countries, you don’t see much of God’s glory in most of the people and that is sad, but it’s true.

Like I always say, though: this is the day that the Lord hath made; it’s good because Jesus is in it! No matter how bad the day may seem or look, it isn’t bad. Because things happen in the day that will make it seem bad, but if you go somewhere way out in the woods and just look around and gaze at the beauty of his creations, you will see how magnificent a day it really is.

Don’t Stop Believin’

I have often discussed believing, my beliefs, and to keep believing. But isn’t there a difference in telling someone to keep believin’ then saying “don’t stop believin’? Because, to tell one to keep believing to me doesn’t have nearly the impact as saying the alternative does. It just feels like people might respond better to being told that, but with how things can often be in this world I know it is easy to get discouraged and disappointed; however, you must keep just keep moving on and don’t stop believin’!

Life is full of many surprises, obstacles, trials, pains heartaches and struggles. But in my life, I’ve been looking back on all those times my family has gone through trials and if there is one thing I remember it is this: No matter how bad the day may have seemed or the trial, God was still there in control, taking care of business, and watching over us giving us comfort and supplying our needs.

Just when you’re on the brink of giving up – that is when God will step in and he will work a tremendous miracle right on time! He doesn’t work on our time, but it is his time which is important! Knowing what is best for us is what he does best! So when times get bad just remember this:

Journey Slow, and Don’t Stop Believin’!!

God bless y’all!

Sincerely,

Extreme Mice Fighting

Hello, everyone!

Today I’d like to talk to you about a very crazy event that happened to me one day while browsing a pamphlet for some cell phone company.

I had just taken the information from the counter and starting reading it while my mom and grandma were checking out….

When this guy walks up behind me and asks: “Don’t I know you?” Puzzled, I take a glance at him and during this whole event – I am in shock. Because I know I don’t know him at all; I’d never seen him in my life but I have no idea what to say so I just stand there in awe.

He then proceeds to tell me his name and how we met. He had two events to explain how we met. He first said that we met while he was a back-up dancer for the movie Magic Mike.. Now I just couldn’t help but start laughing. My mom and grandma couldn’t help but laugh either. My mom, especially, was absolutely hee-hawing and almost snorting!

But wait, I just thought it was weird until the next event he began to explain how we knew him. He said that he met up with me and my grandma and my mom too, out on the parking lot of Wal-Mart where he was wrestling mice. He told us that he was an “Extreme Mice Fighter” and that he put the littlest boxing gloves on them and fought them, then he went on to say that my grandma was there too and that had been betting on one of his mice! And that was an outright lie – we are Christians and none of us are betting people!!

By then everyone was dumbfounded and I had come to the conclusion in the back of my mind, finally, that this was just some kind of prank or something. Honestly, I myself, thought it was kind of funny because it reminded me of a funny thing my best friend and I have talked about doing when we get together.

Back to my mice fighting friend though – he continued to try and make us believe that we knew him. OH and I forgot to mention that when he first came up to me my mom had to tell me to shake his hand so I did and still in shock I was wondering when he was going to let go, finally after quite sometime I started to wiggle out of his loose grip.

What an experience huh? I sure won’t ever forget that day! I ended up giving him one of my business cards that day and I went home and posted this photo on my Facebook page saying “EXTREME MICE FIGHTING” above it but I never explained in detail what it was all about. So for those of you who seen it, now you know.

Had to laugh today. God definitely has a sense of humor and sometimes he shares it with us.

Blessings to you all!

Sincerely,
