turn over

You ever woke up in the morning and wanted to turn over and go back to sleep? Just hide from it all because you've had enough. In the Bible it says for us to "turn over" our problems to God and he will take care of them in his own time. Maybe we should turn over in the morning. Turn over our problems or worries to God and let him handle them. Just say, "God I am turning over my worries to you. I do not have to worry about them anymore, because you will take car of me, just as you always have." Yeah I think I'm gonna turn over right now....worrying ain't doin me any good anyway.

Have a great weekend! God Bless!

Glory

When you hear the word Glory do you think of 4th of July or Christmas....I do. Shouldn't Glory be an everyday occurance? Shouldn't we give Glory to God daily? Amen.
Please pray for my cousin's husband's whole family. They are facing the passing of a special man...sometimes it is very hard to let go, even though there is suffering involved. We must focus on the fact that he will be much better off than we can hope for, that he will be in God's loving arms, and that one day you can see him in heaven again.

God Bless!

monkey

Some days we feel as if our lives are leaving us behind. We stand there as things go zooming by. Why are we moving slow or why does it seem as if we are standing still. Is it that monkey on our back? The little rascle is hanging on not letting go. We wiggle, shrug scream, scratch, and beg, but he hangs on....dragging us down. Is that monkey like our sins? If we ask for forgiveness, our burdens we bear will be gone, our freedom will be returned, and we can stand tall. Pray. I always ask prayer for others, but how about prayer for yourself today?

God Bless!

Relay

We had our Relay for Life Friday night....it was great! Our goal was 5K and we raised 8.5K! Yeah!!! Thanks to all of you for helping out and supporting me. Relay was not emotional for my until around 2 or 3. There was a group who had a couple of people who smoked. I asked them if they would be done soon, not stop, and they acted childish, even when I explained that my lungs weren't developed. It made me upset because it made me feel like a victim of the disease...again. I walked a couple of laps, and got upset walking it, but then felt better. Keep your head up, keep walking and never stop fighting.

God Bless!

biting

We have always had a hard time with Eme biting, but this past bit has been rough with it. We have tried having them bite her back, but that doesn't work. We have tried woopin, time-out, spanking, taking away her favorite stuff, etc. Now, the taking stuff away bit works the best with her, but she still does it. We are under the impression many times that she is frustrated or provoked, so we handle each situation differently. The other day I told her to make sure if she was feeling frustrated to come to a "Mommy or Daddy" and tell them you were about to bite, so that they could stop what was happening. Well, as usually happens, that one got messed up. Friday all the girls were in the living room, and I heard Eme say, "You better stop or I'm gonna bite!" This was not to us of course, but to her sisters. Do you think it would help me to say that in life?

God Bless!

comfort

What is your comfort? There is something that if you are asked (and you are being honest), what is something you do to comfort yourself, you would have an answer. I shower in the dark. Anytime something was rough in my life (usually one of my cats dying) I do it....now when I'm really tired, I catch myself doing that before I get in bed. Why? who knows. It soothes me, or relaxes me...but either way I am comfortable. Is your relationship with God that way? Do you turn to him for comfort? I think we all need to more often, yes he hears our cries for help, but he always hears our need to be held as well.

God Bless!

dip

Ele has a new kitten. We have exhausted the toilet paper names, and have now moved onto the Mexican food theme. We had Taco, and now we have a Orange kitten. His name is Queso. Ele is in love with him, and he is very well mannered, especially to be a "wild" kitty. Please pray for Ms. Linda undergoing treatment, and for her family dealing with their own greif over her diagnosis. We naturally have a hard time letting go....even letting go of our worries to God. It makes the worry easier if you know that a higher power....the highest power is in charge.

God Bless!

week

Last week I was out of town, sorry I couldn't blog! A lot has happened...Ele lost her other front tooth, Lex flew like Superman off the swing (but only got a sprained wrist), and Eme sold her sister. She is my Grindad made over. I guess while I was gone Robert asked Eme where Ele was, she replied with, "I sold her." Robert said, "You did?" She replied with, "Yep. I got 20 bucks and I kept it all!"

Yall have a great day and keep your head up!
God Bless!

sunny

Don't sunny days make you feel more alive? I remember the first time I sat in my chair soon after returning home from transplant, and just staring out the window....it was cold out, but sunny....beautiful. Why is it that on rainy days it seems fitting for a funeral, but on sunny days a party. Today is a sunny day, and hot, but our moods should be happy. Try to make everyday a sunny day. God gave us our days, and when the end nears, we are gonna want those cloudy days to try again. We don't have that option, but we do have the ability to enjoy ALL our days, rain or shine.

God Bless!

tooth

Last night Ele lost her front tooth! She was so happy and we were allvery proud. Do you remember losing your front tooth. I don't, but I remember other ones, and they were special. Remeber the memories, but live in today. God gave us today to make the best of.

God Bless!

chance

We like to say that we have choices. There is a sense of empowerment in the word. Now what if we replaced the word with chance....just change three letters. It makes a difference. You have a choice to do what is right? or You have a chance to do what is right? The main difference is how you choose or chance to make a difference, or to change. Learn to let go make a chance....turn it over to God.

God Bless!

week

On Monday's I usually talk about how our weekend went and what we did. Instead I would like to talk about today, not this week, but living in today. If today was your last...would you have made the most? Would you leave a smiling impression on everyone? Show the Love!

God Bless!
