for the place where thou standest is holy ground."
Acts 7:33 KJV

"Filled with wonder, awe struck wonder, 
At the mention of Your name. 
Jesus Your name is power, 
Breath and living water, 
Such a marv'lous mystery." 
(Revelation Song Lyrics)

Isn't it just wonderful when The Lord jiggles you awake at 2:00 AM just to spend time with you?  It is 3:10AM now and I just had to pen some of my ponderings.  

Above are a portion of the lyrics to the "Revelation" Song.  I have shared with friends the fact that the last few Sundays in our worship service... I have set and wept at the mere thought of what I see The Lord doing around me.  Things that I have prayed about for years being transformed before my very eyes, not because of me... but probably in spite of me and my feeble attempts to make them happen.  Usually when I am awakened at this hour I feel lead to pray for special needs that I have been made aware of, or people who God places on my mind at that given time.  Tonight I did that very thing but then just sat back in "AWE" and praise of the mighty God that I love and serve.
I never want to lose the "WONDER"!

wonder  [ wúndər ]  amazed admiration or awe - something marvelous: a miracle or other cause of intense admiration - extraordinarily good: exciting admiration or amazement by virtue of being outstandingly good, effective, or unusual

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.  (Psalm 40:5)

It seems as if the Wolfe house guest bedroom has been a "revolving door" as of late.  There is nothing like company... friends and family coming to share a few days of visiting.  Talk, laugh, sit under the pecan tree, share meals together, just "catch up" unhindered by time.  We have had the pleasure to entertain my friend Susan and her son Benjamin (just to love on and minister to), Steve's Parents along with Brother Ed and his wife Suzanne (a long overdue visit & blueberry pickin'), and our dear friends the Feuquays (spent cherished days before moving).  In preparation for our "honored guests" the main bathroom in our home is prepared for it's new occupants.  Sparkling clean, scentsy warmer emitting aromatic fragrance, and fresh linens await.

I don't know about you but in our "guest bathroom" hang "guest towels"!  You know, the ones that no one is allowed to use.  Well, in ours hang plush black towels that took eons to find just the perfect ones.  Also, I am sure that you are aware of the fact that when black is laundered... fuzz attracts and is almost impossible to remove.  I say all of that to say... our "guest towels" are not even used by "guests".  

It is a case of "look but don't touch"!  It is even a humorous issue between Steve and I that he takes great pleasure teasing me about.  What brought all of this to mind was, I read a funny bathroom sign yesterday which said:  "Guest towels are to be used by guests, non-guests will please dry their hands on their clothes." ... Snicker!

So ridiculous are the material things that we place value on... no one worthy of its use.  I am so thankful that when I come into the presence of our Lord... nothing good is off limits... "no good thing" does He withhold.

"For the LORD God is a sun and shield:  the LORD will give grace and glory:  no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly."  
(Psalm 84:11)

It seems that i have so little time to blog anymore but something happened this week that I had to record.  When you read the title you will think that maybe I am referring to a "well known" Mary... maybe Mary the Mother of Jesus, or Mary Magdelene whom Jesus cast seven demons out of, or possibly Mary of Bethany (the sister of Lazarus and Martha) who loved learning the teachings of our Lord.  Oh but no, the Mary that I am referring to is just the opposite of all the above... the Mary I am referring to is an atheist.  Let me explain:

On Wednesday Evenings a very special friend and I go to the local women's homeless shelter to do a Bible Study with the ladies presently living there.  You can't help but build a bonding relationship with these precious women.  There is a particular resident there named Amanda.  This past Wednesday Night she looked at me and asked if I was "kin to" a Mary __________ that lived in _____________.  After some pondering on my part, I replied:  "Not that I am aware of, why do you ask?"  She then proceeded to tell me about a dear friend of hers (named Mary) that I reminded her so much of.  She told me that she had prayed for this friend for many years because she was an atheist.  She then said something that I have rehearsed over and over in mind since... "I am going to have to take a picture of you and that big smile you always have on your face, send it to her and tell her that this is what she would look like if she knew the Lord... A SANCTIFIED MARY."

I do not know this Mary (this look-a-like of mine) and will probably never meet her face to face, but the Lord knows exactly who she is.  I'm asking that you join me in praying that Mary will truly one day soon, be sanctified.

(Acts 20:32)  And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace,  
which is able to build you up , and to give you an inheritance among all them 
which are sanctified

(Acts 26:18)   To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from 
the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and  
inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. 

(1 Corinthians 6:11)   And such were some of you: but ye are washed , but ye are  
sanctified , but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and  
by the Spirit of our God.
