The writing is on the wall.”  What does that mean to you?  Doom?  That is EXACTLY what it meant for King Belshazzar.

During a banquet he held for his nobles, his wives and concubines, they drank from goblets of silver and gold that had been taken from the Temple in Jerusalem, all the while praising the gods of gold, silver, bronze, iron and wood. Imagine his surprise as he watched a disembodied hand write words on a wall! He called for Daniel, who interpreted the mysterious writing for Belshazzar, declaring God’s message that Belshazzar’s pride had brought his downfall and that his days as king were numbered. That very night the king was assassinated, and Darius the Mede took his place.  You can read the passage here, in Daniel 5.

What does the writing on your wall say about your walk with God?  Your marriage?  Ask God to reveal to you what you have been sowing and building with your words and actions into your life and marriage.  Wives, have you been encouraging your husband with your words?  Have you been his #1 cheerleader?  Husbands, have you been nurturing your wives, enabling them to be all God created them to be?  Have you been protecting your wife?  Have you been leading her in the way God intended?

The writing on the wall doesn’t have to mean doom for your marriage.  Our God is the god of second chances! Thank God for the hope and power of the resurrection! Take what God reveals to you and give it to Him.  Seek His forgiveness.  Choose to walk away from the wall changed, empowered by His truth, and walk out His Word in your marriage.  God is the god of hope- as long as you are breathing and willing to let the Holy  Spirit work in you, He will change you.  Let Him change the writing on your wall to a message of HOPE!

I am not a very patient person so waiting is very difficult for me.  I want things to be done right away and on my time table.  I am the kind of person that will sit and wait and think on something nonstop, as if that will make it happen somehow.  Waiting, for me, can be completely debilitating.  When we are waiting on the Lord to answer a prayer, heal a love one or change ones heart it can be even harder.  We can’t see what He is doing most of the time.   His time table is completely different than ours.  He see’s the whole picture at once while we get only a tiny piece.  But our God is so merciful,  He gives us hope.  Hope in tomorrow and hope for today.  This hope is what makes waiting bearable.  Staying in Gods word helps us not to become debilitated in life.  It gives us hope in his promises as we wait on him.  He WILL answer our prayers.:

Now I am just waiting on silly little quail to hatch but God cares about me and what I care about, even the small little things.  “casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

What did I do today?  I didn’t sit in front of the incubator with my chin in my hands.  Inspired by my friend Stephanie, my family and I went huckleberry picking!

My husband’s friend has 20 acres up in the foothills of Mt Baker with lots and lots of huckleberries.

Look what we found!

   My boys called it an alligator lizard, don’t know the real name.

Here is my boys trying to see if it likes huckleberriesIt took a few bites at it,  although I think it was in self defense.   Altogether we had a beautiful day and picked over 4 QTS of huckleberries!!

As for my quail eggs..

I think i saw that striped one in the back wiggle a little.


Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
