June 21st 2001: Since I wrote last, so many things have been going on. I went to North Carolina where I sang at a wonderful church. And spent the rest of the week shooting commercials for Drexel Heritage furniture. Then I took a couple of days and went to Florida and just sat on that wonderful beach by the Gulf of Mexico. The ocean is one of my favorite creations that God has blessed us with. It reminds me of how creative and big He is.

I took a book with me to the beach. Coincidentally, three other women on the beach were reading the same book. It was "The Prayer of Jabez". It was nice to know we ladies had something in common even though we'd never met. I had heard the talk about this book, both good and bad. I figured I had rather know for myself what the talk was about. I only found the good. In my life I have a real problem asking our Lord for blessings. I figure that God and I are in contact so much surely He knows what is going on in my life and what I need. I'm sure this is true. Yet when I read about His love for me as His child and how like a "Father" He longs to hear my voice telling Him what I need, just as my earthly Dad does, I was extremely moved. Of course He wants to hear me pray to Him for my needs and blessings. That is the evidence of my dependence on Him.

I just got back from Alabama where spent Father's Day with my Dad and my family. I have a Daddy who is my best friend and I know loves me. Thank You God for a great family. I wish I could give this blessing to everyone. Even though I can't, I know the Lord can.

I'm reading in first Chronicles. Today I read about how David danced around the ark when he brought it back into Israel (1st Chronicles 15). David understood total dependence on God and how God loved him. David also understood the importance of family. That is kinda what first Chronicles is all about. David's family all lead up to the Lord Jesus Christ. As I read all those names I feel honored to be adopted into the family that was the earthly heritage of Jesus. I feel even more honored to be a child of the one true Father and God.
