Wow! It really has been years since I was last on my blog. to much has happen to write about now. I am a senior in colloge my oldest is a senior in high school. I was sitting here thinking if I could only stop time for a moment and just remember all the good days that have since past.. It makes me sad to think about all the great times we used to have together as a family. New chapters are starting for our family and it is a very sad time for me as a mother, but I know the Lord has great plans for our family, no matter what is going on right now. I Love you to the moon and back and dont ever forget that! As one door closes another one is going to open
I was just laying there on the couch with my youngest son and i started thinking about how much food i used to eat… Very scary really! I used to go to this pizza place named CiCi’s Pizza and order one of there LARGE pizza for my self and sit there and eat the whole thing. WOW! That’s a lot of food, not only that but tons and tons of fat and carbs my body didn’t need but i would do it almost twice a week. See before my surgery i couldn’t have dairy products so i would order the pizza with no cheese, as the rest of my family would go and eat the rest of it. My whole thought process was i don’t want this to go to waste and they wont let you take it home, so i had to eat it. This is just one thought about how much food i use to eat, today I don’t eat pizza, I don’t eat bread and I’m careful of the carbs i do consume. if my family gets pizza i might take a piece and eat the toppings off of it. I couldn’t eat that much now even if i tried, my little tummy couldn’t hold it all…. Have you ever thought about how much you used to eat? Its scary really I Praise the Lord He has shown me a new way to look at food and how to eat it right. Now I’m showing my 3 children how to eat right and I Pray my husband is watching too. We don’t eat out that much any more and when we do, I share off someones plate and so does my youngest. So the next time you go out to eat really think about how much you eat, it might shock you how much you really eat……..

We all have them. Some are wonderful, others are not that great. Some are close and some are distant.
I find people interesting; and sometimes intimidating because of how introverted I am. It’s a lot easier for me to write an email to someone than talk on the phone. Because of this, I have had drama in my life. Miscommunications. Hurt feelings. Messes to clean up. You’d think I’d learn. Speaking to people face to face is the best way to communicate. And that takes time. Time is precious.
But then again, we spend time doing whatever we feel is important.
Over the past few weeks I have been led to take inventory of my time, my relationships, and my priorities. I’m not really all that pleased with what I am finding.

In much the same way that World War II got us out of the Depression, it is one of those things that is not wished for, yet the reality of it remains. One should not seek out war in order to bolster a country’s economy, nor should one wish for tragedy in order to bolster their position.
But the question remains, does tragedy benefit the pro gun crowd or the gun control zealots?
If you listen to the liberal mainstream media you are inundated with the self righteous fervor of liberty hating dogma that states that “such and such tragedy” is proof that people cannot be responsible for their own well being and as such shouldn’t have the right to keep and bear arms.
When it comes down to it, that is the only argument the gun control zealots believe in, because after all, they operable word is CONTROL, not…

I have enjoyed working through the Made to Crave Bible study. I have one lesson left and should finish that up by the end of December. That means it is time to find another study to do! I love studying God’s word, especially with others!!
Beginning in mid-January I will begin an online study of God’s Wisdom for a Mother’s Heartby Bobbie Wolgemuth. Moms need encouragement. And this study looks like it will be practical and help encourage us moms to set priorities, teach obedience, how to pray for our kids, and how to help our kids form God-filled dreams. I’m excited about this!!
The study is meant to last 7 weeks. But I am going to stretch it out over 14 weeks. This will allow “life” to happen. And because this will be an online study, we’ll have discussion and accountability through comments.
If you are interested in…

3 And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, every one in his watch, and every one to be over against his house.
5 And my God put into mine heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and found written therein,
6 These are the children of the province, that went up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one unto his city;
73 So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.
1 Now it came to pass, when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;)
6 Wherein was written, It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith it, that thou and the Jews think to rebel: for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words.
7 And thou hast also appointed prophets to preach of thee at Jerusalem, saying, There is a king in Judah: and now shall it be reported to the king according to these words. Come now therefore, and let us take counsel together.
10 Afterward I came unto the house of Shemaiah the son of Delaiah the son of Mehetabeel, who was shut up; and he said, Let us meet together in the house of God, within the temple, and let us shut the doors of the temple: for they will come to slay thee; yea, in the night will they come to slay thee.
16 And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God.
