I have always thought, randomly ad totally not backed up by anything, that if you had enough faith all you had to do was; pray once, wait patiently, and God will answer in his own time. Today I learned, from the helpful ladies at Proverbs 31 ministries and Luke 18: 1 that Jesus to bug God!! That's right he told a parable about a women with such great faith that she bugged an unrighteous judge until he gave in, and God who is so much more awesome will answer your prayers so much more quickly then that mean old judge!!
This gives me more relief then you can imagine! Sometimes I pray for the same thing every day as a way to ask God but to also help me remember that it will be ok, and I thought I was terrible for not having enough faith to trust Him the first time I prayed! In steps Jesus to save the day and tell me that God wants me to 'bug' him!!!
I hope this helps anyone else who may have gotten their wires crossed somewhere!! I love you all!!!

No, I'm not going to talk about that book series! And in truth this may be a very short post. I feel left behind today. I love raising my son! Today I wish I could be doing a million more things; I want to meet my girl friends for encouragement, I want to be with my husband as he helps our friend move, I want to be in a bible study learning and discussing, I want to volunteer to help people in my community! Today I want to do everything but I am doing nothing. S and I are having a quite day of laundry peanut butter bread and music at home! You will say "oh that's the greatest thing of all!" and I know it is a great responsibility but today I feel left behind because most of my friends are off doing those other things and I am at home. My heart knows that this is where I am supposed to be and that soon I will be in another season, but some days I am impatient and not good at enjoying the moment! I am trying but days like today I make the choice because I sure will not do well if I do not choose to be ok! If you feel left behind, it is ok!! Call me! Uh oh! Got to go there is Peanut Butter everywhere:/
