Amazon Baby Registry

Congratulations Mom-to-Be on your pregnancy!!  One trip to Babies R Us will tell you that this baby thing can get complicated if you let it!  You now have so many decisions to make- do you choose the high end car seat, high chair, crib, bottle warmer, diaper rash cream, and on and on?!  We want to make things simpler for you, because we’ve been there, and know it can seem daunting, overwhelming, and a little crazy!  Looking back, there ARE in fact those items that really WERE worth the extra money, and there are those things that didn’t really matter.  We’re going to decode it here for you, and if you agree, just add it to your registry.   Amazon Baby Registry is great because there are so many items to choose from, and you’re not running around store to store (or your guests aren’t) to find the perfect items in stock.  You just order online and have it shipped, with many items qualifying for Super-Saver shipping.  Additionally, the Amazon Baby Registry Sweepstakes is currently going on, so start yours today and be registered to win a $500 gift card(one winner per week through 7/25)! Good luck, and hope this list makes one thing in your life easier!

Refiner of Silver

“AMom's Prioritylthough the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; your own eyes will see them.  Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.’ ” – Isaiah 30:20-21

For sure, this past week has been one of trials.  I dare call it “adversity” because I know so many people who have REAL adversity going on in their lives, and I do count my blessings.  But things like your computer crashing, jury duty, surgery, an abundance of commitments all crammed into one week, and a favorite family pet passing on…it seems like a little adversity, so I’m trying to learn from it.

Adversity seems to test us in our character, and to refine us into what is more becoming of His Character and image.  This past week was one of those where you feel like, ‘yes!  I’ve made it through that!’, and then another issue comes up!  At our church also, we are going through a season of adversity; hopefully, and prayerfully, God’s purpose is refinement. 

“I will refine them like silver and test them like gold.  They will call on my name and I will answer them.” – Zechariah 13:9

So, I pray, if you are going through a season of adversity, that you can see the good that is coming out of it, and not let the negatives bring you down.  “Press on toward the goal” like Philippians 3:14 says, and be confident, as you face your trials, that “he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 1:6
