15th Wedding Anniversary
Wedding Vows Renewal Ceremony


A special wedding took place here on Sunday, September 27th
celebrating Tom and Bonnie's 15 years together.
Tom and Bonnie were married on September 24th - 15 years ago
by a justice of the peace.
They both recently committed their lives to Christ
in full surrender to Him.
It was their deep desire to be married in the eyes of God in the Sanctuary Circle.
The ceremony was officiated by
Reverend William McCausland
Bonnie and Tom were surrounded by family and friends.
A dinner was given in their honor here at
following the joyful ceremony.
Bonnie's daughter-in-law, Dawn Morris, was also
saved and baptized recently
and she attends our Thursday night Believing God Bible Study.
Dawn was the photographer for this event.
Please check out the rest of her story on her blog post and website:
You can read Dawn's version of the day's events including how our Great God broke through the rain and the storm to open up the sun-filled sky - only 2 hours before the wedding!
Bonnie and Tom are a pair of SHEPHERD'S WALK most faithful volunteers!
It has been an exciting privilege to watch them both grow in Christ
and walk His Path of Righteousness together.

Daniel 9:4-19

We will be praying for

our country,
our servicemen, for needs of others,
for the salvation of loved ones in our families,
and for God to grow us from within
and fill our hearts with His plans and purposes
as we seek to know Him more.

"By the grace of God I am what I am,
and His grace toward me was not in vain…"
~ 1 Corinthians 15:10

There is only one relationship that really matters,
and that is your personal relationship
with your personal Redeemer and Lord.
If you maintain that at all costs,
letting go of everything else,
God will fulfill His purpose through your life.
One individual life may be of priceless value
to God's purposes,
and yours
may be that life.
~ Oswald Chambers

BLOG AWARD - And A Presentation!

This award came to me at SHEPHERD'S WALK today from my dear friend Edie, over at:


This is one of the most precious awards [that none of us deserves]. Prayer is such an unexplainable PRIVILEGE that God gives us - to participate in His kingdom work. Thank you, Edie, for blessing me with this honor as we join together in siber space and PRAYER!
I never go by the 'rules' on award giving. Usually - you are asked to pass this on to 7 or 10 people. I always pass on any award to just one person. Today I wish to present this award to a special blogging friend, Yolanda, from Kansas, over at:

Yolanda and I go way back to the first days of blogging together. She is a beautifully RESTORED sister in the faith and her heart for PRAYER has become a yearning in her soul that she takes very seriously. So with JOY - I pass this award on to her. Yolanda, may your prayers continue for those who cross your path. May God continue to richly bless your life and pour His FAVOR over you!
PRAYER... activates what God has already purposed in your life! ~ TRUTHSHARER @2007

Choosing JOY, Stephanie
