Trip

We went to Indy this weekend and had a ball! We went shopping and to the Zoo, and more shopping. Today was a prep for Robert day. Pray for him...he's going back to Ecuador to see family...not to stay! haha! He is excited and nervous. I'm excited for him too.

God Bless!

living

Living isn't the battle...doing it well is. That quote is mine, not anybody elses, but I love this one that follows too. You know, our trials and tribulations is what makes us feel blessed...If you didn't have the bumps, you wouldn't know what smooth is. That one was mine also...I'm on a roll tonight.

God Bless!

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

see my face

Our friends boys were with their Momma in the bathroom at Wal-Mart. The big one is trying to poop. The little one keeps asking, "Are ya done yet?" "No." is replied. "Are ya done yet?" "No." is replied. Over and over...until the big one says, "When you see my face turns red and my eyes water I'm done!" A few moments the face happens and the little one says, "OOOH and it tinks too!"....as the lady in the next stall slams the door fleeing from the stall! Have a great day!

God Bless!

Change

We've talked about change before. If you want something to happen you make it happen. If you will it, it will happen. Think about this though....Does God know what change you will choose? or does he leave that up to you? I think he knows. He knows what route each of us will choose. Our lives are too intricate and he is ALWAYS in control. So think about that...each time you dread the change that's going to happen you are not alone.

God Bless!

sing it

Only if it's worthy of the Grace of God....If you have something to tell, tell it. If you have something to say, say it. If you have something to sing, sing it. If you have something to believe, believe it.

God Bless!

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

God is with us

God is with us....that was one of the lessons at VBS yesterday. We had a great time. The kids did great and we all enjoyed a non-stress day. I think I loved the lessons because they meant a lot to me. I just thought about it and asked Ele what she said, (I remembered that when Jess said in church that some of the kids had amazing things that they said God was with them...I didn't even know they had said anything) Ele said, "God was with us when my Momma had cancer." I said,"You did?" and she replied "Yeah, and Jess said that God had been with me a lot." I said yes he is. I then spoke with Jess on the phone and she said Ele was a special girl, and that she was "smart and obsorbant". I said yeah she is. I'm very proud of all my girls, and I'm proud to know that they know God.

God Bless!

freedom

I saw where it is Nelson Mandela had a birthday yesterday. We've discussed how it is very importand to be a positive influence on others lives, but have you thought about how you can really affect each and every part of their lives. Positivity can even influence them to do things that they did not know they were capable of doing. We know that an influence on someone's self esteem is very important, but to be positive enough with just a word or scentence said at the right time will or can cause them to realize something that resides in them is possible. How we word things matters, and may be the difference between lifting someone up and putting them down. When you do, and are consistant with multiple people, you may find that you realize something in yourself also. Lift someone up, I do yall in prayer.

God Bless!

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. -Nelson Mandela

congratulations

We want to congratulate our friends Angie and James on their new little bundle Madeline! She is so cute! It's hard to believe that our girls are getting so big. Even Rebel and Tyson will be 10! It makes you wanna cry! I know yall remember kids who are getting older...when you see them you feel older! I hope yall have a great day...remember to smile and make someone else's day...it will make yours too!

God Bless!

funder

funder...I knew at the first of the summer that Ele was maturing when she quit calling Thunder "Funder" and started pronouncing it right. Yesterday the girls were upset because of all the noise, not as bad as they have been before, because we are always trying to tell them it's ok. Well, Lex was looking worried and Eme leans over to her and says, "It's OK Lexi, it's just God talking..." then she turns her head to the side a little, and adds..."...really loudly!" Let God talk to you today!

God Bless!

door

Every morning I'm given about 30 min before the back room door gets banged on till it gets on your nerves. Tyson (the baby boy -10 years old now-cat) wan't out of their room. You wonder if his patience runs out or he just gets soo hungry. I can be on the couch making no noise or running full blast around the house, it doesn't matter, he bangs on the door. He is a big baby, who just wants his way, but he accomplishes nothing by beating on the door, just reminds me that he is waiting. I think God does the same thing, beating on the door of our heart...he just tries to remind us he is still there waiting. How often do we not listen, or how often are we on the other side waiting for a reminder to do what we are supposed to do?

God Bless!

nothing new

I know nothing new. Just tired and about to go to bed. I hope all of yall have a great day!

God Bless!

Apples and Wine

Jess sent me this one and I LOVE it! I hope yall have a great weekend! Remember to stay safe and hug the ones you love!...BTW.. I don't bash men I just keep them in line...or neuter them!

God Bless!

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the
tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are
afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the
apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at
the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're
amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the
one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Now Men.... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's
up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into
something acceptable to have dinner with.

lotion

Eme is running thru the house yelling she needs clothes. When you stop and look at her, she has white streaks on her from where she put on her lotion after her shower. She was hollering yeah! after getting her lotion rubbed in. She is hilarious. I know nothing and am too tired to think. I hope yall have a great day. Remember you choose your mood. Choose not to be grumpy. Choose to smile and LIVE your life. God Blessed us with it.

God Bless!

funny and female

We all walk around with some pride involved. Wether it be our looks, our brains, our car, our clothes, our money...there is something we "think" we have better than average. I make fun of myself the majority of the time, because it's funner to make fun of yourself first, plus as I've said before you NEVER need to take yourself too serious. As women we need to realize that God made us different for a reason. What the reason is I don't know! Women in general are different than men for various reasons one of which is the old monthly visitor! Why fight it? Enjoy it...we have a reason to be grumpy, and delight in saying, "Do you really wanna mess with me? It is my time and I'm a tickin!" I loved this verse, which is the reason for this title...oh and Pray for Robert in about 7 years.....haha!

Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.

grasshopper

Well, if Ele's heart was going go "off" it should have done it today. Momma said they were in the car in the drive (all three girls and her) and Ele started screaming bloody murder (the other two did a little, but not to the extreme she did). I guess she threw herself one fit and a half. There was a little baby grasshopper in the car. Momma got her out of the car and made sure she was ok, and she was fine. I guess all three girls went to the Physical therapy for Momma's knee. Eme was NOT happy because she wanted to ride the bike too! I found this quote and loved it...BTW my Momma does not know how to swim...I don't think it was from someone not trying to teach her though! Just kidding!

"My Mom said she learned how to swim when someone took her out in the lake and threw her off the boat. I said, 'Mom, they weren't trying to teach you how to swim.'" --Paula Poundstone

weekend

We had a great weekend. We did NOTHING! We went to Church today, Dollar General, and came home, that was it. We were gonna go swimming tonight, and I got stung by a wasp, so I'm Benadryled up now. My most exciting thing was getting a new toothbrush! I have been using a kids Dinosaur one for a week, which takes twice as long because it is so small! Isn't it great to have the little things in life. We truly are blessed! Oh...Ele did it again. She came running thru the house to the bathroom, and about the time I started to open my mouth to get onto her for running, I hear the toilet seat and a,"Whew I'm blessed"...which was proceeded by a "Ahhhh!" She had to go pee, and barely made it! haha! Think about how blessed you are with the little things...like not peeing in your pants!

God Bless!

slow

Does slow drive you nuts? We get behind someone slow, stay on their butt nagging them, thinking, "How dare they! Move over!" We exxagerate by sinking down in the seat, or slapping our hands on the wheel, or the best, throwing our hands up in the air as if to say, "You're going so slow my car is driving itself!" Then we stop and think..."Why is it I want to go fast?"...I have time, I'm not late. Then we justify it by saying, well they're still going slow. Sometimes it's fine to be slow. Think about the people who were caught up by the slow person on 9/11. God has a plan for us, and sometimes we need to take the slow route to get there. Ever wonder why it's called sight-seeing or enjoying the view? Thank God for the slow people in your life..I do! haha!

God Bless!

I loved this one..."Why does Sea World have a seafood restaurant?? I'm halfway through my fish burger and I realize, Oh my God.... I could be eating a slow l…

holiday

We had a great 4th. The night before we shot off our fireworks, then yesterday other than small things we played in the pool, ate outside, and did nothing. It was bliss! I hope each of yall had a great time. Please pray for those who have lost loved ones in the military, and for those fighting. God Bless them and yall!

sore

I am so sore! We played water volleyball for 1.5 hrs yesterday afternoon. You don't realize how many muscles that you don't use, until you have to use them. I think I'm gonna go crash now. I have something for yall to think on though....who have you made smile already today? Who have you influenced today...positively? Who have you told you'll be praying for them? I am for yall.

God Bless!

party party party

We partied all weekend. Eme's party was Sat, her birthday was yesterday, and we're gonna party tonight too. We had a ball and so did all the people who were here. I think we are all exhausted now. I am dragging this morning. I hope all of yall had a great weekend. I can't wait till I get to crawl in bed tonight! I thank God I have one to crawl into! Have a great day yall!

God Bless!
