ALL your strength!!!

A young boy and his father were walking along a forest path. At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them. The boy asked his father, “If I try, do you think I could move that branch?” His father replied, “I am sure you can, if you use all your strength.” The boy tried his best to lift or push the branch, but he was not strong enough and he couldn’t move it. He said, with disappointment, “You were wrong, dad. I can’t move it.”  “Try again,” replied his father. Again, the boy tried hard to push the branch. He struggled but it did not move. Again, the boy tried hard to push the branch. He struggled but it did not move. “Dad, I cannot do it,” said the boy. Finally his father said, “Son, I advised you to use all your strength. You didn’t. 
You didn’t ask for my help.
Bro. Jason at my church read this in our opening of church yesterday and I thought it was SOOOOOOO GOOD, I just had to look it up and share it with you all as well!!! How often in life, do we fail at overcoming our circumstances and tough situations in life, simply because we failed to use ALL OF OUR STRENGTH...GOD'S STRENGTH!!! God is our strength! On our own accord we are not strong enough, BUT with God!!! This week, remember to USE ALL YOUR STRENGTH to overcome your problems!!! 
" I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (Philippians 4:13)
"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him." (Psalm 28:7)

Stultz's eyeballs were NOT open in that picture, HE WAS SLEEPING!!! Is that NOT totally the creepiest picture with his eyeballs looking like they were showing through this sunglasses??? It must have been a reflection of something on them that looked like EYEBALLS!!! BUUUUUUUUUT,  he was sleeping...weeeeeelllll emphasis on WAS...he WAS SLEEPING...till Miss Detective over here woke him to see if he was sleeping or NOT!!! AHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!! I then had to show him the picture so he could see the eyeballs, otherwise he wouldn't of believed my super-sleuth self!!! Hee, hee!!!

We had amaaaaaaaaaazing church!!!! The presence of God fell and Odin was on his face sobbing and crying out to God in prayer!!! Afterwards he said he felt JESUS!!! I'm believing God is going to fill him soon with the Holy Ghost!!! 
It's mind boggling that even a special needs child can feel God and believe, yet the scholars have the stupidity to doubt it!!! 
" ...Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." (Mathew 18:3)

Soooooooooo we're OFFICIALLY going to West Coast Conference, ME, O, T and MJ!!! We're driving to Ontario, picking up Courtney and making her drive the rest of the way, then Hanna's going to come in like the last dayish or so!!! I'm soooooo EXCITED!!! We'll be missing Wednesday night buuuuut we'll be there the rest of the time!!! I haven't been to WCC since 2015...I was looking at pics...I feel like a different person since then....Soooooooo much has happened!!! I EVEN HAVE FAKE TEETH NOW...HEEEEEEEEEEYYY!!! 😉🙌
They put me in charge of reserving the room...I was like OMW, I'VE NEVERRRRR reserved a hotel room before, I feel, SOOOOOOO ADULTISH!!! somehow I managed to get us in at the main hotel, which is shocking since I heard in the summer time they were already filled! I just wasn't able to get the WCC rate, she said there were rooms available still with the WCC rate, buuuuuuuut that they were being locked in some how by the conference, she said I COULD speak with the people in charge of the conference to see if they would unlock the rooms. I was thinking, weeeeellll, it's NOT like I have any of them on speed dial on my phone to speak with them, soooooooo it's looking like FULL PRICE!!! LOL Unless anyone wants to help a sista out with unlocking...Much appreciated!!! hee, hee!!! 
Sooooo on my list of things to do is 1. TEAZERS I've literally thought about that place sooooo much since 2015...I'm going there EVERY AFTERNOON...possible more!!! 2. Tokyo Steakhouse, can't make it through WCC without going there, annnnnnnnd I THINK O will LOOOOOOVE IT!!! 3. Mexican Restaurant that Sis. Abbott always talks about...Not sure what it's called, buuuuuut gotta try it!!! 4. Sequoia National Park on the way home!!! And hopefully get in some hiking and epic pics with God's beautiful artwork!!! 
Okaaaaaaaaaay sooooo I'm still getting over the fact that in 2015, we ACTUALLY ditched going to a NATIONAL PARK to go to FRESNO ZOO!!! I'm sorry people, buuuuuuuuuuut we have AMAZING ZOOS here in AZ, annnnnnnnd guess what, I NEVERRRRRR EVEN GO TO THEM...not about to go to them in place of a National Park in another state!!! I just really enjoy nature and the out doors...okaaaaaay getting that disappointment outta my system and MOVING FORWARD!!! BAHAHAAAAA!!!

Happy Brain-boosing Wednesday!!!

Here's your middle-of-the-week brain booster!!!
"Did you know???..."
What scatology means???? YEEEES, that is a REAL WORD!!! 
Soooooooooo we were playing games at the church a few Sunday nights ago, and the word was SCATOLOGY! If you you've never played  BALDERDASH, it is an incredibly FUNNNNN game where you make up definitions for extremely rare words, then they all get read and  you have to guess which one is the actual definition. The thing is, is that SOMETIMES, the definition is really crazy, sooooo you NEVERRRR know which one could possibly be right!!! 

Btw: I would like to add in that I WON the game, 
EVEN THO Stultz said it was UNJUSTLY...Psh✋
Weeeeeellllll THE WORD WAS SCATOLOGY and Denae came up with THE AWESOMEST definition everrrrr!!! 
Every time we play this game, there is usually ONE definition that wins the BEST DEFINITION EVERRR AWARD from me annnnnnnnd DENAE ONE THIS TIME!!!! She said: Scatology: The Study of getting rid of boyfriends!!!! Get it??? Like, SCAT, get out of here? SCAT??? AHAHAHAAAAAAA!!! 
Good one Denae, 
"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. If you want THE ACTUAL definition of scatology go HERE, but it's not nearly as exciting as Denae's!!!

God is doing GREAT things!!!

Just wanted to share with you all some of the great things God is doing here in Arizona!!!
Probably one of the most exciting this is that Rafael received the Holy Ghost!!!
After several years of faithfully coming to church and seeking the Holy Ghost, the very end of this past July I believe it was, HE FINALLY GOT IT!!! Our church rejoiced with him!!! 
A couple also came and got baptized in Jesus name, Bro.Martin had just been baptized in the titles Father, son and holy ghost, buuuuuuut after his baptism, during his own studying of the Bible, he realized that he needed to be baptized in JESUS NAME, he began looking up churches and God led him to us and Lucero were REBAPTIZED one week later IN JESUS NAME!!! 

Him and Lucero have both received the Holy's so so exciting to see what God is doing in their lives!!!

There have been more as well that have received the Holy Ghost but I don't have pictures of them all...Praying with people doesn't always coordinate with getting pictures...BUUUUUT it's soooooooo exciting!!! Can't wait to see what God does next!!!
