Sometimes there just isn’t answers to the questions I hold in my heart. Sometimes life doesn’t make sense and the enemy seems to have victory. But today while pondering that, I was reminded that the enemy has been defeated. God is in the good and the bad. He is in all things. Learning to Trust him even when life doesn’t seem to make sense has been the story of my life and probably everyone else. Thankfully, I’ve been so Blessed to have had role models for me on how to respond when God seems distant. On how to show Love when bitterness seems like the answer. On how to forgive when you’ve feel you’ve been wronged. On how to stay silent when screaming seems like the obvious…. Recently, the enemy has wanted me to grow bitterness yet again…. I’m not. I feel free… And it feels great. I await Redemption and what that will look like for all to see. I believe in the power of the CROSS!
My babies (the twins) turned 9 a couple of weeks ago…
I can’t believe how big they are getting!
We had a wonderful birthday party planned for down at the park this past Saturday to celebrate with their friends…. It wasn’t supposed to rain that day,but it did.
WE made the best of it inside. All 14 boys and me…
YIKES!!!! The joys of motherhood! Wouldn’t trade it for the world!
What an amazing time the last couple of weeks have been!
Getting Married :), going on vacation with my wonderful new husband, moving everyone into the house, Getting the boys ready for school and celebrating the twins 9th birthday….
I know we have so many great memories that lie ahead for us. Just trying to enjoy everyday.
We’ll post wedding pictures once we get them all together…
Here is one from Silver lake….
God, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for this gift!
How did I get here??? I don’t deserve your goodness Lord. I am in complete amazement of what you are painting my life to be. I stand in Awe of you tonight and Promise I will always remember that this is from you!
The boys went to “Kid’s camp” last week and it’s been evident that God is moving in their lives. Even when mom has been “so busy” and they have bounced around dealing with the dynamics of having 2 homes. Our God is at work! To know that God loves my children even more than I do and that HE wants what’s best for them. I could be the best mom in the world and still not feel like I’m giving them what they deserve. I am so thankful that I can trust HIM with my beautiful boys….
Yes this is Andrew reading his Bible… We sat ouside together today and had our devotions together. His birthday present request for his 9th birthday…. A Bible with his name on the cover…
Lord God I pray for my boys to make a difference in their generation… Thank you in advance!
I’ve been carpooling with my mom this summer to work. I usually drop her off and then I usually have about 15 minutes to spare before I need to be in to work. I have found a spot (old parking lot) where I park my car and just dedicate that 15 minutes to praying for my day. It’s amazing all the things that God lays on my heart.
Well this morning, I could just sense GOD’S presence in such a unique way that it made me begin to cry.
I am just so Blessed.
I want to feel like a little girl when it comes to my faith. I want to be known as someone with amazing FAITH. God please don’t ever let me be comfortable. “WOW” me with your Great Power!
