Pedro cleans the dishes

Create in me
 Clean heart 
Oh Lord and renew a steadfast Spirit within me.
 Psalms 51:10

A couple of years ago I had a raging headache for 3 weeks. I was getting ready to start a course in helping others. I had some healing emotionally.  Spiritually I was falling apart. Inside my heart there was a lot of rage. towards God and it come out how I interacted with people. I also realize that I was angry towards the church and the rules that were imposed upon me as a teenager. I was angry because people had hurt me. I was hiding behind a mask.  My stress was coming out in my body with stuttering. I had to come from my body suit and confess my anger towards God the church and family. I had to lay my hurts at the feet of Jesus and let Jesus forgive me o f my anger  and heal my heart. I had to pledge my allegience and loyalty  to Jesus instead of the vow I made as a teenager.   Immediately I experienced the Lord's forgiveness and my heart began to come back to it proper place.  
  God cleaned me up my heart and  there was restoration to my heart.
Reflection in a stream, shows us the way we really are. It doesn't mean a thing. God looks at us the same way and sees our reflection but doesn't miss a thing. When we try to hide from him he sees it even more We have to get down on our knees and pray forgiveness, Lord reflect in me your Spirit so others will see you and want your reflection in their lives


! Blessed Assurance Jesus is Mine

Heart Matters

Pedro has been a part of our lives for 4 years. Pedro has introduced my husband and I to many people. Pedro has helped me in a lot of ways. He has given me the gift of laughter. Pedro has given our home the gift of song.

 When we moved to our home 4 years ago we came with a mixed feelings.  Our Heart were filled with graditude to God for providing our new home! We were  excited to have a home of our own.  Our Hearts were filled with sadness that Kayla our other dog would not be with us.

  My heart was filled with sadness as my  Mom would not be vistiting as she had passed a way a year earlier.   God knew the desires of our heart to have another little dog.  Pedro came to our home in September .

One day I was singing at the piano and I had little Pedro in my arms as I played the piano. I heard a squeek from  Pedro and I laughed out loud as Pedro was singing. After my mom had died in a dream - visison she came to me and said Thanks Margaret for sending me to heaven Heaven is Gorgeous. I am Praising God and I will never be far away when you are Praising the Lord. I laughed as I thought of Pedro singing with me. Singing took on a whole new meaning to me.

 Blessed Assurrance is Pedro's favorite
This song has began to be my life song

Blessed Assurance Jesus is mine. This is my story, this is my song Praising my Savior all the day long

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine. But a broken Spirit drys up the bones. But a merry heart is the Joy of the Lord.

Pedro licking off the plate that had apple pie on it! yum!

Overwhelmed by God's Grace Uncovering the Truth about adoption

Overwhelmed by God's Grace 


 the truth

about  adoption

Margaret Etcher Theriault

Came out in January 2011

Margaret always knew she was adopted. She was told she was "chosen" and "special"
but she alway wondered why her roots needed to be such a big secret. 

When the truth finally came out, the struggle for acceptance and belonging intensified
But then there came healing and a growing understanding
 of the deep love and grace of God.

Margaret Etcher Theriault lives in Kitchener,Ontario
 with her husband, Maurica and dog Pedro.
Margaret runs a business that
 makes baskets for all occasions.

Importance of Rest

Negative Thinking Pattern

I was  consumed with worry thoughts because the Car was  not starting.
I kept dwelling on these thoughts I became Discouraged.  My body  started to stiffen up as I walked.  I continue dwell on these negative thoughts. Doubts plague my mind  What is I would always have a walking problem. How would I get the car fixed? 

Change my Thinking Pattern  

 Psalm 8:4  Rest gives you energy to get through the day,strong.
The Joy of the Lord is my strength. Nehemiah 3:10

My focus has been on myself My thoughts were negative. My thoughts were  focus was on me and not on God.

  I can rely on the Lord for my strength.

 Is. 40:31 They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be wary they shall run and not Faith. 1Peter 1:8 says we have to carry each others borders.

God is Sovereign, God is my strength

 Habakkuk3:19 The sovereign Lord is my strength , he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, and he enables me to go on to the heights.

Dear Father God I come in Jesus name. I confess that I have worried, I have doubted your sovereignty. I have drained my energy by worrying. Forgive for doubt you.
In Jesus name

Heart Matters.

Finally brethren,whatsoever things are true,whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things pure,whatsoever things pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are good  of report; if there be any virtue  and there be any praise think on these things
Philippians 4:8

I have been doing some thinking about this verse. What comes to mind here is when someone is rude by saying something  to us rather than taking their words to heart lets choose to  over look what they have said forgive them, lets choose to think lovely thoughts, pure thoughts about the person who has been rude to us. What are they going  on that persons life ?  I have learned from experience if you harp on what someone has said and think about you have take on their anger. You become distressed and your thoughts towards that person grow.

Get rid of malice and bitterness, clamor and evil speaking against one another. Ephesians 4:31
Don't let it take root.

How do we do not  take root. First bless the person who has wrong you, or has been rude to you, Forgive them and then seek to think on the goodness of that person and bless the Lord in Praise,  Pray for them as they might have had a bad day.

Heart Matters

I will give  give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh   Ezekiel 36:26

 I was lying in my bed and I had a lot of things weighing on my mind. It had been a particulary a busy couple of days. So I got up and I started to write what was on my mind. As I wrote  in my journal  what was bothering me  I noticed the scripture  Psalms 90:2 on the bottom of the page 
Before the mountains brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world even from everlasting to everlasting You are God. Psalms 90:2  

He is our God and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of his hand. Psalms 95:7

God spoke through scripture to me. "I am God" I know you are uptight and I know  about your troubling thoughts.

I am holding you and those whom you are concerned  about in my hands. I have the whole world in my hands.

I am the Lord and there is no other. You have spent the day praising my name and now it is time to be Still and know that I ma God.

Before the world was created I am God,  I am  even God even  before the mountain were moved. I sing over you with joy and I am delight in you.

Open up your heart to me for all I want to do in your heart. To show you my glory and power. Let me show you the extent of what I want to do in your life and in the hearts of others.  I am God Be still and know that I am God.

I prayed Jesus I need a new heart that is softened  by you. My heart is open to all you want to do in my heart. My heart is open to trust you Here it is.
A calmness came over me. These words rang in my mind as I went back to bed. 
Be still and know I am working
Be still know I am God.
Be still know I have it in my hands.
Be still as I am your Rock and Fortress.
Be Still.

I went back to bed and the pain in my body stopped and the concerns were put to bed in my journal.

I slept soundly
