Wow it has been too long!

>> Friday, December 30, 2011

I didn't realize I had gone so long without posting.  I am not making excuses but it is not easy to post from my phone.  I do not find time to post from the computer.  I have been busy decorating, sewing, and baking for Christmas.

I love Christmas season and everything about it! I love to give to the people that are dear to me! I was able to make many Christmas gifts this year and loved it!

This first pictures was not for Christmas, but for a friend who is expecting a boy in just a few short weeks now

Much Better August 3, 2011

>> Thursday, August 4, 2011

Today is a much brighter post...

God has the ability to work everything out, even my own insecurities.

He allows the right people to say the right thing at exactly the right time.

Yesterday I had too much caffeine too late in the evening and didn't get to sleep early enough, but during those moments of lying in bed I was still....I prayed for God's wisdom and protection. He answered my requests in a way I never would have imagined and a lot faster than expected!!

I serve an awesome God!!


Proceed with caution.......

Not a positive blog post, so don't read if u want to be encouraged or uplifted or if you just don't need more negativity in your life.......

I have a lot of pet I'm going to rant and rave about a few of them....
***If you borrow something please return it....
***Don't say 'let's get together',' let's do a playdate', or 'Let's hang out sometime' unless you really mean it. As adults we don't have to be friends with everyone, but don't say something just to be polite.
***Dont say you are going to do something unless u are going to do it.
I only have one fear and that stems from real life experiences but there are many things that drive me to the brink of tears....
I don't like to be ignored
I don't like to be in a one sided relationship
I don't like people that always have good intentions but very rarely follow thru with them
I don't like to feel lonely
I don't like to be excluded
I don't like that other people can make me feel so bad
I don't like feeling sad
I don't like feeling like a failure
I don't like when I can't fix things for my kids...which I know will only get harder as they grow

Sometimes the negative things in my life have positive outcomes....I'd like to think I look for the blessings in every situation but I have to spew out all the negatives. I would love to some day be able to look over the negative and get right to the sunny side of life but I am not there yet.................
I look at these faces and I want to do better FOR THEM!!!!


Growing Pains

Growing Pains
July 17,2011

A friend reminded me today nothing happens by accident. Along with the reminder from my pastor on Sunday that God has a plan for me! I am trying to take each lesson as a growing opportunity.....

God put me where I am, at this moment! He has plans that are meant for Good and not harm...the plans are for my hope and my future.....Jer 29:11

The children God has entrusted to me, the husband he blessed me with, the family and all my friends he has given me is all according to his plan. Maybe I am in my Esther stage and God has placed me here for such a time as this!!

I am in a place of major issues pulling me down, just LIFE! and sometimes I feel like I am being stretched beyond my limits. If I allow him to, God will give the Grace to get through these growing pains. I just have to be open to receiving that Grace!

Until then if you think about me just say a little prayer b/c sometimes these growing pains are more than I can handle.  I am so glad that I don't have to...God is beside me and carrying me through ALWAYS!!!
