Well just thought that I would say "Hey!" and let you all know that I havent fallen off of the face of the earth! (Sorry Elizabeth!!) Things here have been really busy this week. I work at a daycare for-with a very dear friend of mine and over the next 2 weeks the "boss lady" is gone. (when she reads this she will kill me for that statement! :P ) She and her husband are gone with a group from church to Israel. I am really happy for her to have this opportunity, she has wanted to go for about 40 years or so. No matter how excited I am for her I cant wait for them to get back!! Have I mentioned yet that I really miss them? Well there was about 9-11 people that we just love to death that have gone on this amazing trip. I am so excited for them all.
Anyway~~~ so getting sidetracked! Well soo as for the daycare-preschool stuff, well tonight was trick or treat night, and we (my sweet husband and I) stayed there tonight to see the kids all dressed up, give them the treats, take the ever traditional pictures of each costume, ect...
This would be our 4th night in a row that we have been busy from dawn till dusk! And yet tomorrow night is our Bowling night!! I am really hoping that we do well tomorrow. Right now we are in 1st place... hoping to hold on to it!
I will post some pics later! Good night for now!

Ok so I promised...

That I would at least post something every day... (thanks Eliszabeth! :P) So here we go!

Today has been crazy but yet a blessing all the same. I made a trip to our closest big town today to get Bella a costume. Just fyi- I always wait untill the last possible minute to get the cheapest deal! So as I am driving the Lord laid someone from church on my heart, so I called her cell and left a message for her. ( This is going somewhere I promise!).

Back to the shopping- we get to the mall and I walk from one end to the other only to really not be happy with anything that I found. I just started praying that God would show me what to do . (I was almost giving in to paying way to much for the cutiest one from Gymbo.) So I decide that I am going to stop to look at some sales. As I am looking my phone rings, and its the lady I called earlier. As we were closing our conversations she says "Oh, I almost forgot. Do you have a costume for Bella yet?" I stand in awe at my God. He is sooo good. So just so you all know... Bella is going to be my little Lady Bug! This costume is sooo adorable and alot nicer than the ones I was finding. I just need to find some black tights that fit her. Thanks Thelma!!

I love my Jesus. I love that even in small things He makes it known that He is taking care of us.

I am going to end this post with one of my favorite verses~The Words however are from a song..

"For I know the plans I have for you says your God, plans to prosper you, not to harm you, Plans to give you hope and a future. BELIEVE in Me , Trust in me, for I am your God."

I'm back!!

Hey all! Just thought that I would let you know that I am still alive. Things here have been crazy. God has been working on my heart lately... I just have been fighting him about this exact thing. Blogging.
For about a month now I have been struggling with my ministries. Thinking that I just wasnt doing enough for God. Not doing or being involved in the things at church the way I really disire to. I have always been a person who loved to be busy. Tonight I had what I am going to call and AHH ha! moment.
Sharing this exact burden with a dear friend from church the Lord used her in an awesome way to show me the ministries that I do have that I really didnt even relize. I was encouraged to be happy and content in the ones that God has given to me, to do them well, and to quit pining for more.
Little did I know that God was using this to prepare me to share and encourage someone else just moments later. God is so good!
The verse comes to mind "Godliness with contentment is great gain" and I am Ahh haa-ing this one! (yes I know not real words, but this is my blog and I can make them up!! :P )
Sooo long way to say that I am now looking at this blog in a new way. And you will all just have to wait and see what changes are going to take place!!!
Well its late and getting later, so Goodnight for now!

Hey all! I just thought that I would share some pics from the retreat in Lexington. I had such a refreshing time. Thank you to Angie for sharing Audreys story. This part of the retreat honestly is why I went. If you are not familiar with Angie and her story please check out her blog... Bring the rain on my blog list. Thank you also to the other ladies who spoke that weekend as well. Not going to share all of the great things that I learned, because you would be here a while. But one of the things that really hit home and was sooo amazing is.... Some of the ladies from the church walked across the stage with signs saying things like "Longed for acceptance" and then they would turn the sign and it would say something like "Accepted into the Family of God just the way I am" . So many very powerful things like that.

Well here is a pic of the girls that we sat with... at the last minute a friend from church decided she would go with me to the retreat. We met some very sweet ladies Shelia,Mardi, and Terri.

Mardi, Michelle S. Sheila, and yours truely :)

Just a quick note....

Hey, just thought that I would get on here and ask a couple of prayer requests.
Please remember a dear sister in Christ Angie. today is marking 6 months since the passing of her sweet daughter. I will be on and update more of what had been going on here, but I am needing to run to the Music store before I start teaching this afternoon.
Thank you for keeping her in your prayers!

While I was looking at pictures I found....

This! It is my favorite picture of Isabella! She was about 3 months old in this pic. I am a little biased but isnt she just ADORABLE!! :) This was and still is my favorite outfit that she had from Gymboree... a little crazy I know. But soo sweet!

Here's some pics I forgot to add on...

I thought that I would add some pics of Isabellas' first motorcycle. This was given to her by her great-aunt Betty. Thanks Aunt Betty! She loves it!
