We've Got The Fever!

Hi Y'all,
Please pray for us. Everybody in the Robinson family has a 100+ fever. Even my computer is takes 3-6 tries to connect to the Internet. So only my dog who has stopped having anything to do with us is well.
More news when the fever is down and I don't feel like falling over!

Being Still

Hey Y'all,
We are being still.
We are being still and knowing
We are being still and knowing that He is God.
We are being still and knowing that He is God because...
We still haven't Heard anything!
So keep praying for us and with us.
It is easier being still knowing you are still praying with us!
I love you all still!

10 or 2?

Hey Y'all,

Today has been an anxious day because Mike's package went before the Army Chaplain selection board today. We won't know anything for a couple of days but I have to tell you it has been nerve racking! I jump every time the phone rings.

Friends, I woke up this morning filled with awe and fear. One second believing we are going to step into the Army like it is our own Promised Land and the next fearful Mike will be rejected and we will once again begin another run through the wilderness. As I'm praying, I hear a question, "Are you one of the 10 or one of the 2?"


"Are you one of the 10 or one of the 2? Do you believe God has called you to this promised land or are you fearful of the possible giants in the way?"

Truthfully I answered, "A little bit of both."

I want to be like the 2. The two spies who went to see the Promised Land and saw that it was good and that God had already given it to them, in Numbers 13-14. I want to shout with them "God has already given it to us! Now we must prepare to enter the land and possess this calling!"

I want to feel confident, but I can't help but notice that their are a few giants.

The 10 would say to me:
There is a giant called the selection board that only picks the top 60%
If you get past that one there is the giant task of getting your house ready to sell.
Then comes the giant of Mike being away at school 3 months.
Then the giant of moving to an army base, more than likely in another state!
There is the largest giant which will be leaving my church...and my school!

These are big giants...but as I prayed and asked God to help me come down off the teeter-totter and decide if I am going to run and hide like the 10 or stand in faith like the 2...I remembered something....The LORD is your Banner. It is HE who goes before you.

That means...that even if the door is shut by the giants on the selection board God will be the Banner that leads us into our Promised Land.

It means that if we are selected...then I can know that I will not be the one facing the other giants...The LORD is my Banner! My Jehovah Nissi!

I am not a 10! I am a 2!

Keep praying for us. I'll let you know when we hear.

Love you Pamela

Sweet Sound of Victory

Hey Y'all,

The visual mystery has come to an end and I'm sad to say no one was even close.

But I do have a random winner it is Sharon Sloan over at

Sharon is a great writer and I love her blog.

OK I know you are all dying to know what my visual mystery truly is, so lets look again at the clues.

It has nothing to do with snow or ice

It is used everyday, several times a day

You probably have one in your house

You are looking through it and it purposefully blurred.

Drum roll please.....

It is the center piece of a tape dispenser. The round outside edge is the scotch tape. The
crisscross shapes in the center is the wheel the tape rolls on. The colored stuff in the background as you are looking through the wheel is stuff on my desk: Pink and blue sticky notes and my pen holder can almost be seen clearly.

It was fun seeing your answers. I will have to do this again sometime.

It is funny how things we see and recognize everyday when they get too close our perception blurs so that they are unrecognizable. Much like when God is closest to us during grief, stress , or even times when we are stress free and things seem to be going our way....we can't always see Him clearly either. He is there.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you what Sharon won!

It is a Book/CD by George Beverly Shea called How Sweet The Sound. It is Amazing stories and grace-filled reflections on beloved hymns and gospel songs. These stories are incredible and I treasure my own copy.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Mike and I are going on a date tonight.

Love ya

Visual Mystery

Hey Y'all!

OK, it is time for some fun. I have been cooped up with snow and ice for three days now, so I want to have some fun.
Look at this picture. Can you guess what it is?

Here are a few hints:
It has nothing to do with snow or ice,
It is used everyday, several times a day.
You probably have one in your house.
You are looking through it and it is purposefully blurred.

Can you guess?
If you can....There is a prize involved.

I will award a prize to anyone who can guess what it is. In the case of no one getting the right answer, I will draw a random winner.

I will select the winner on Friday, February 5th.

The prize will also remain a mystery until the winner is chosen

But I promise you I wont stick you with it.

Keep praying for us that God will grant Mike favor with the Chaplain boards on February 9th. Oh My! That is just a week from tomorrow!

Thanks for playing and praying!
