Hey friends!

Happy Weekend to you! I hope you are having a GREAT weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

I must admit to having 3 things on my mind today….hockey, Japan, and gold. These are thoughts from my bed ~ where I miserably sit with a horrible sore throat (I’m thinking it’s strep for sure!), sick bell and laptop!

(I’d say I feel “lousy” ~ but did you know that word originally came from how people felt when they had lice? And I’m still lice free ~ which is good, good news!)

Why am I thinking hockey?? Today is my son Benj’s last game. We’re supposed to be having a Hockey Celebration tonight for him. Instead I sit home all alone in my bedroom. “Don’t like!”

Here is a little video I shot at Benj’s last game. (Benj is blue # 23). I’m trying to get better at my video taping skills! ๐Ÿ™‚

I did better this time (than with my son Jake’s hockey video.don’t you think? ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, I’ve spent the day looking at the devestation in Japan. Oh Lord, reveal Yourself in the midst of this horrific tragedy. I came across this video which helped guide my prayers….


And lastly, I have GOLD on my mind because of the GOLDen teaching I was going to share at Bible study this Monday night (from my Red Hot series, based on Rev 3:14-21).

Unfortunately, I think I’ll be doing good to even make it to Bible Study this week, much less share a lesson. Once again, “don’t like”. (Monday night friends, save your gold outfits for the 21st!)

But as I sit in my “sick bed” and watch the reports from Japan, I can’t help but think in the midst of my yuckiness, there are so many around the world that need our prayers! May God remind of His goodness, in the midst of the devestation, set our minds wholeheartedly on Him, and use us to make a difference in this lost and hurting world!

I’m heading back under my cozy covers with my prayer guide, and would love to pray for you., my sweet *She Sparkles* friend. What’s on your mind and heart these days??

Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. Have a wonderful, joy-filled, life-giving, lice-free weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. One more video…one of my favorites shared by the amazing, worship-full Erica Simpson! ๐Ÿ™‚
