As many of you know I was a kindergarten teacher for 27 yrs. and probably quoted the alphabet every day. Summing up how many times I may have quoted those letters is about 9855 times or more within those years. Well, now that I am involved in a new endeavor in my life with the “It’s 4 uMom” outreach ministries; would you believe I am still quoting the Alphabet but in a great new way.
I want to share with you an idea I started about 11 yrs. ago: It is taking the letters of the Alphabet and giving a characteristic of God for each letter. I do this when I am in my prayer time, when I am driving somewhere, when I need to be encouraged, when I just need to see God. I started out with just one adjective, noun, or phrase about Christ, per letter, but sometimes I can say up to 10 characteristics with many of the letters. You know, this little idea is between you and God and you can do as many as the Spirit of God leads you to say. It has become an encouragement to me and can be done 365 days of the year.

A – Almighty, Amazing, Adviser, Able

Take time to enjoy God!!!!!

I Chronicles 29: 10b-13
“… Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all
Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.”
