who's coming to dinner?

Tonight I was one of five hosts around Austin for a "Who's Coming to Dinner?" party for the ladies of our church.  The idea is only the hostess knows who's coming to dinner until the guests arrive.  Surprise!  With such a great mix of ladies (5 in all)  the conversation was non-stop.  We didn't even use our ice breaker (although I tried:). 

The Low Down:
So for the past few days Marc & I had been hammering out what we wanted to give as party favors and he suggests I make a headband fashioned after the one he picked up for me a while back.  I wasn't quite on board knowing my sewing skills aren't quite up to speed for a project like that.  Well TODAY I still had nothing to give....aside from magnets I made in a few minutes (which wasn't gonna cut it in the least).  So at noon (knowing party is at 7 & I have a million things to do) I get some fabric, my sewing machine, thread & the Spirit of God....and take off....making something I've never made much less looked twice at other than to notice how cute it makes my bad hair days out to be!  So lets just say that God showed up & I made 7 of them by 3:30 with several feeding, changing, and playing with my boys "distractions" along the way.  God is so amazing!  Creative!!!! 

Marc came home with flowers, food for fixin, gift boxes & burned CDs of the Binions worship music to add to my "favor box".  AMAZING!!!!  That is the word I use to describe my husband today.  I don't mean a little amazing, I mean a BIG FAT Whoppin' AMAZING~!!!  Not only did he grocery shop for the event & bring home surprises for my friends--ready for this?--HE COOKED EVERYTHING!!!!  I know!  I'm one blessed lady!  I made the house dazzle & he made yummy, not to mention, beautiful food!  Honey, I love you!  I really really love you!

OK, all that being said the conversation was wonderful & most of it circled around God, His glory, power & love.  If you ask me, I'd say that's just what the night was meant to be & when He is honored we all walk away blessed.  I really & truly LOVE my church family.....even though of the 4 ladies that came to dinner I only knew my Pastor's wife, the others I had either never met or only seen in passing.  Shocking?  Not when you serve the same powerful God!  It was seamless folks.  Thanks also to my Honey who took the boys out to Mimi & Papa's for a while to give us a quiet house.

Did I mention just how awesome of a husband I have?  He is so lovely & I hope he's as blessed by me as I am by him.  On that note, I think I'll go to bed now:)

moving sidewalk of faith

The other day in prayer (yes, it actually takes a while before I can sit at the computer & process thought) I saw us (me & my husband) on a moving sidewalk.  Each time we took a step it was as if 10 were taken.  Even though in the natural we were walking the same pace as everyone else, in my vision, we were supernaturally being moved along life's highway with faith in God.  God's favor all over us has been increasing more & more & more and some of those closest to us have no idea of what's been taking place in the realm of the spirit.  As we draw closer to Him He has been drawing closer to us & showing us things to come.  Its big folks.  God is a big god & we can certainly limit Him with our own mindset, doubt, unbelief, bad confessions & the like.  Well I'm over it! 

I will take His word as truth & put it in my heart and confess it with my mouth.  "I wanna see what You see, I wanna hear what You hear."  I'm saying all this to say to all our friends & family acquaintances & even strangers....you're about to see a huge change....a big manifestation of His Grace on our lives.  Grace!  THE BLESSING!  It may be next week, it may be next month, it may even be next year but I'm living & expecting as if its today.  Today my victory is here!  Today my miracle is made manifest. 
WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!  Doin a little dance, shakin' my bootie!

Speaking of shakin' my bootie--yesterday after church I was talking with a good friend & she told me of something she made (I couldn't really listen because I don't do food talk well at all....at ALL) but I heard "butter, cause I don't use that fake stuff that clogs your arteries",  I wasn't rude by any means when I interrupted her story.  I wasn't.  I couldn't stop myself so for some strange reason I blurt out "do you wanna do a butter dance?" To my surprise she said yes & we not only did a "butter dance" (whatever that is) we made an impromptu song "butta butta butta oooo I love my buttaahh".  Do you have a visual yet? 
Marc caught us and didn't give much of an effort to hide his embarrassment.   How long will it take him to get used to my silliness?  One can only guess. 

AC went out today & let me just say....I was anything but silly.  Since I left my diaper bag with a friend I was stuck at home with no drivers license, no money & no camera.  So I took a nap with the boys:) 

my blog.... little silly & a little spiritual.  Just like a joyful (VICTORIOUS) un-normal day in the life of Trish!

Speaking of my life....tomorrow is Marc's Birthday....wait....  TODAY is Marc's birthday (as I realize its after midnight) & I want it to be really special for him.  So special .... he asked if he could plan it for himself....so he's taking me and the boys somewhere ....and won't tell me.  It may just be my best birthday ever:)
