About Me Page (updated)

My sister and I on her wedding day 9/19/2015

Life is taking me on an amazing journey, and the Lord has been faithful and true in guiding me along the way!! It hasn't always been easy in fact sometimes it seemed downright unbearable ,but the Lord didn't promise an easy road just help for the way. And He also promised that he wouldn't give us more than we can bear!

1 Corinthians 10:13 

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Wow such a rich promise!! And we can use him as an escape any time we face trials and temptations! God is so Good. Only in recent years have I discovered how much he means to me in my life!

 For the past year I have been living in Aroda, Virginia and what an experience it has been!! A year ago I never would have dreampt  that I would have had the privilege to experience all the wonderful things that I have here at Mountain View. It has in no way always been easy in fact it has been very stretching and has made me grow more than I ever have in any stage of life!! The Lord is very real here and He is brought into everything we do, In our work, play, and sleep!! This place is very spiritually filling and has very rich soil to grow in!! PRAISE THE LORD!!  

I am in Housekeeping. This past summer I was the fill in housekeeping supervisor, because the former supervisor is now our Dean of Women and I just filled in until the new supervisor came in August. That was very challenging and I now have a new appreciation for all that those in charge do around here. They have alot to keep straight! We clean approximately 20 toilets, 60 sinks/mirrors, and  23 floors a day!! It keeps us very busy and we also keep up with all the guest houses when guest come to stay!! I love my job and the amazing people God has given me to work with!! 

So that is my life right now!! I have no idea what God has in store for the future!! Lord willing I will be moving back home in April. I have no job as of yet ,but do plan on continuing with the dogs when I get back, but I am not overly concerned about the rest of the details they will fall into place!! May the Lord Bless you!! ~Rose Mary

Jeremiah 29:11 
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord ,
 thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

God's Call!!

We as Christians are called to several things on this earth and two of them are:

To spread the gospel to all corners of the world!
For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying , I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
-Acts 13:47

And to honor and glorify God with our lives!!
-Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

There is a song that has been running through my head recently and it talks about letting those around us know about our faith in Christ.

Anywhere you go any country road or city street ,a lonely life ,a hurting heart, somebody in need ,they all ask one thing ,where is love and truth. But if you know Jesus ,then you know what to do! 

Shine the light, share your faith
Show the world that Jesus is the answer, that Jesus is the way, together we can make a difference.
Be a beacon in the dark of night. Share your faith, hold it high, shine the light.

What am I doing in this world to show them about Jesus? Are there people right beside me that are lonely, hurting, or crying out for someone to help them?  We don't have to go to far away countries to find needy hurting people ,we have them right here in America! (I am in no way saying that there aren't needs around the world in foreign lands ,but sometimes I believe we forget about those right beside us)

There is a call for every believer to be a light and beacon of hope for those around us. We can be witnesses for Christ right where we are planted. God has a plan and a purpose for every single person he has placed on this earth!! And he loves every human being very dearly, and he wants every single one of us to live with him in Glory someday!!

God has called us his own!!!
2 Timothy 1:9 
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

May God richly Bless you!! 
Until Next Time!! -Rose Mary

Busy October!!

November is upon us already!! So much happened last month. We were quite busy in the housekeeping department!! We had quite a few guests come in and out so we had guesthouses that needed cleaned about once a week! I love the job of cleaning up after people leave!!

I did quite a few random things with people this past month!!And............ I bought a fish!
He has yet to be named with a name that I actually like. He was in the middles of the living room floor the day I bought him and several of the girls were throwing name ideas around and they have yet to come up with one I like. The two main ones were Buzz (just for the record I very much despise that name) and Sammy (which isn't so bad but it just doesn't fit him)!! All the girls love him and come to visit him occasionally!!

This month has been full but good!! The one Wednesday afternoon one of the girls and I decided to go to Panera bread because she had never eaten there and she wanted to try it out!! We had such a fun time we discussed life and got to try some really good food!! And we had a very memorable ride home because I drove her car which is a manual and I haven't had tons of experience driving those but we got home safely and I only stalled once :)

The next day I had off and the girls and I that were off decided to go to McDonald's for breakfast at 11:00 (since they now have all day breakfast) we sat at the restaurant for about an hour and a half just laughing and talking it was a really fun time!! Then Heidi and I went down to the Pond and sat on the dock for most of the afternoon journaling and reading!! Later in the evening we went to the creek and waded in the creek and sat on the bridge and just enjoyed nature!!

Dorothy one of my really good friends from Mountain View was back to visit because she now has moved home. And while she was here we decided to do something fun together and we went to the Inn at Willowgrove once again!! We went on Wednesday evening because they have a sample menu where you can sample a little portion of their menu for $5. It was pouring down rain when we went but that just made it even better because the last time we went it was raining as well. It didn't lack for conversation because her and I can talk about anything and everything!! 

On the first weekend of November I went and visited my sister and her husband down in Gladys Virginia. It was a very fun weekend but it rained all weekend so we didn't do anything outside. On Saturday we went and had a hotdog roast with Tyler's family and then on Sunday we went to church in the morning and in the evening ,but in the afternoon Ruth Ann and I played the game "in a pickle". On Monday it was great to hang out with Ruth Ann we sat and talked for about two hours and then we did her laundry and bake some crescent rolls and just had a lot of fun hanging out as sisters again!! 

Yesterday a whole group of 20 of the staff went on a day off together for the last day off that five of them will have because they are farewelling this weekend. We had such a good day! We went to a cabin overnight and after getting smoked out of the cabin. Due to the fact that they started the fire without opening the chimney ;) (made for an interesting few first hours) we then settled down and played games and chatted and ate!! Then some of us went downstairs and went to bed after we laughed and talked about snakes first (and one of the girls had dreams about snakes then:) We had a girls party!! Then the next morning we slept until 10:30 because it was so pitch black in the basement that we didn't notice it got daylight. We went upstairs and ate breakfast and then we had a very good devotional and had a good group discussion about thinking about every word we say or if it is uplifting and kind when speaking of others! Some of us then went on a walk while others played cornhole. We then decided to take a group picture (which took 15 min to set up)!!
From L to R: Andrew,Rachel,Julitta,Shirley,Janelle,Bethany,Matt,Krista,Michelle,Jen,Katrina,Melissa
Second row: Jeremy,Charlene,Kristalyn,Heidi,Ricky,Rose Mary,James
Well I hope you all have an amazing month!! And don't forget to thank God for everything in your life blessings and trials because they all happen for a reason even though sometimes they may be a bit unwelcomed. And thank Him for those around you because they are a blessing. Happy Thanksgiving!
Until Next Time, Rose Mary
