smile

Smile at someone today...just one person. Smile at them and see if they smile back. I bet they will. Now try it again. Think about it and make a point to pay attention. See how it affects them, and you too? Now...keep trying it. You'll feel better, and everyone you smile at will too.

God Bless!

surgery

Last week I had my teeth whitened. Needless to say I reacted differently (imagint that) and my lips ended up swelling and are now peeling. So, I had my teeth worked on....okay. That night I was holding Angel Soft right before Supper starting and I put her paws together to have her say the blessing and the girls thought it was funny.
Last night Ele was talking about Angel Soft and said, "Momma make her pray. Member when you got your lips done, and you made her pray?" I thought Daddy and I were going to die laughing!
Pray today!

God Bless!

Weekend

We have had a good weekend. Because of the rain today we didn't stress much, laid back some, and had a good day. I grilled out and we had a good supper...not a lot more to say other than...

Everybody tell Barbara Happy 35th Birthday! and please remember those traveling, and continue to remember Joe and Linda in your prayers. We can see miracles all around us if we really look.

God Bless!

weekend

It's a long weekend...are you excited? Do you have plans? Cooking out? Traveling? Projects to complete? We all have things to do. Stop and spend time with your family. Think about the soldiers who have died for our country. We are so blessed.

God Bless!

yesterday

Yesterday was the girls last day of school. Ele won a lot of awards. We are very proud of her. They all went to Momma and Daddy's and played after. Robert got home from his trip, and we all had a good supper. Isn't it good to be with those you care about? No matter what the relationship, you need "down time" to revive the spirits....I guess that's what revival is all about.
Have a great day yall!

God Bless!

dream

I've gotten to where hear lately I write about quotes...well I think it's because I have always liked them, and they seem to be everywhere here lately. Is that because we are a less inspirational society, or are we more? I saw this just now, sleepy and only a quarter awake.....yeah I'd like to dream...but I don't think that's what she was talking about!

God Bless!

opportunity

I got to where in a former life I had grown to dislike the word opportunity. It was used so often and so snidely it raked your nerves....all problems in life were opportunities. Had I been given a chance for someone to have used this in a positive way, and not negatively....I think my view might have been different. (Someone of you know all to well what I mean).
I found this quote and it got me to thinking...a way to turn something negative is to look for that very thing instead of having it pressed upon you all the time.
Do you think that in our own lives if we take the very thing we dislike and find a way to like it we can overcome it? Do you think you can leave your past there? I think it depends on how hard you try, and if you find peace with the past enough to walk forward into the future. I guess it just depends on you. Are you willing to change?

God Bless!

pray

Please continue to pray for Linda and Joe today. Linda and her family needs our daily prayers. facing the unknown is much easier to do if you feel the love and support all around you. I want her to feel our prayers, as well as know that they are there. Joe is having surgery this morning. Please pray for the family and doctors during this scary time.

Have a great weekend yall. I ask for prayer of healing for you also today. We all need to put our lives in perspective, but we also need to know that we all have been promised wing to fly.

God Bless!

Pray

Please continue to pray for Linda and add Joe to your list. He is an amazing family friend who is going to face open heart surgery Friday and we are all scared.

pray

We have talked before about the power of prayer. Miracles do happen. Please PRAY today that God's loving grace and healing go out to a very special lady. Linda is a friend of our extended family and has gotten a very scary diagnosis this past week. Being afraid is ok, but then take a deep breath (sometimes after hours of crying), and say OK God I am in your hands, now what can I do? PRAY, PRAY, PRAY...then fight like hell! Don't let others (Dr's, nurses, etc.) lead ourlives....God gave our body to us to take care of, and no one should make us feel bad about that (that goes for more than just sickness!) Sometimes in our lives it is easy to think that we have more than we can bear, but God know's different. Positivity and Faith are key to our lives, not just to healing. I hope that we all don't forget that, I know that it is all too easy. I got this quote yet again from the infamous "Quote Cuz".

God Bless!

We have a new member to the family. Last Thursday a little 3 week old kitten was left on our steps. April has adopted it. Since we seem to have a theme going with our cats (Charmin, Cottonelle, White Cloud) We named it Angel Soft. She is a good kitten, but April had to take her yesterday for a bowel obstruction. She had an enema, and now we know why Momma kitten gave her up....she didn't want that exploding on her! Yall have a great day! Keep your head up, smile....we do have so much to be thankful for!

God Bless!

Mother's Day

I had a great Mother's Day. I have to write yall the stuff Ele wrote at school...the 1st was a paper where they filled in the blanks.... My mother is a cancer survivor. She is awesome! She likes her family. She looks like a pretty woman. She sounds like me. She smells like roses. She always is polite. My mother is a cool person. I thought that was so cute! Then I pulled out a laminated colored piece of paper that was a card that was titled, "Just for Mom!" In the middle of it was...."You feel like Pepper's fur. You sound like tweeting chicks singing a love song." I love it!

God Bless!

big

The field trip went well and we all had fun. Eme graduated last night from pre-school! She was so big! She said what she wanted to be when she grew up....a Momma! Eme made us very proud, and of course I cried. Please pray today for a friend and her family. Her Grandmother needs a healing touch. And, no I didn't forget! Happy Mother's Day to all the Momma's, Aunt's, Grandmother's, and those special ladies in our lives who are always there for us!

God Bless!

Love

We've been under the weather, and I forgot to blog! Can you believe it?!

Faith will get you there. Love will help keep you there. Grace will be your answers.
Please oray for us today....I'm going on a field trip with the girls...and there will be HUNDREDS of kids there....think I'm gonna take some, no lots, of meds! haha
Have a great day yall!

God Bless!

flying

Yesterday Eme was playing with Pepper and his cloth bone. Daddy said that she had him swinging around in a circle about 6 in off the floor with the bone in his mouth, and her holding the other end, laughing and said, "Look Da! He's flying!" Have a great day yall!...but don't make any dog's fly!

God Bless!

pray

Yesterday was National Day of Prayer. Last night at supper before we said the blessing I asked the girls if they knew what that meant. Ele says, "Oh Momma, that means you're supposed to pray VERY S-L-O-W-L-Y." I then explained what it really meant. Then I said a silent prayer for her! Try praying very slowly today! Actually just take it slow this weekend...we all live our lives way too fast!

God Bless!

right

You know what is right and wrong. If you don't ask for God's help and he will lead the way. You may need to keep praying until the right time for God to help you. It may not be when you think is right, but God knows. He knows so that you will get greater rewards, and the best answer of all. Sometimes we pray about something, and think that it is the right thing, do it, then people don't understand, but will later why you did it. If you pray about it, and the answer is truly from God, you are doing what is right in Faith, and you should not let the devil cast doubts on that. I found this quote and liked it...." Accept that not everyone will approve of your choices. Have faith in your judgement. Take pride in your accomplishments. They are stepping stones to your dreams. Don't let mistakes discourage you....".

God Bless!
