You Are Cinderella!
Image hosted by

Dignified and hard working. With a gentle and soft-spoken manner you have something many people don't. Patience. Even through the moments of heartbreak you're still able to hold onto all of your hopes and dreams. Bide your time; your dream will come true.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

My momma would so disagree. This was taken from A peachy keen life's blog.

Prayers please.

Going for my fist ob visit and I am a little nervous. I don't like doctors in general. Don't get me wrong there are a few good ones, but mostly you are just a dollar sign and not a person. I would like to have a home birth, but we live two hours or more from any decent hospitals. That is a little scary if something goes wrong. Our closest hospital is state run and it is more like a band aid station. But wish me blessings and hope that I get to have a sonogram. Like I mentioned before on this blog, I am way bigger than I should be. I may be further along or twins:) I am suppose to be 4 months, but I look at least six. It just makes me nervous. We have also talked about not having anymore children which breaks my heart. My body just doesn't handle pregnancy like it should. I was told with my last one not to have anymore but I am too stubborn to listen. If I do have my tubes tied, we will likely adopt as we both would like a large family. We have always wanted to ever since we were told that my dh was sterile from cancer. Praise God he had a greater physician. I know a lot of people just let God decided how many they will have, but I feel a tug at my heart telling me to adopt after this one. It is a strong feeling like it is what I should do. But how do I know if it is what God wants. If everyone just had biological children then who would care for the orphans as God has asked us to do. I don't want to offend God by having my tubes tied but I am perplexed with this situation. Any help? Blessings!

Today my wonderful hubby finally got his work truck running again. Yeah!!! I helped by taking off the door panels all by myself;) and helping him install new door handles as well as some other work. It rained today and we are so happy. The dust from the dirt road by our house was so bad the kids could hardly go out. They enjoyed watching our new gutters work. Oh, and they also enjoyed playing in a mud hole in our yard. They were covered in mud. We have been reviewing what my 6yo ds learned last year in school. He has done very well. We should start first grade next Tuesday right on schedule. I think I will have a hard time with my soon to be 4yo dd. She doesn't like to sit still for anything. She knows the ABC song and she can write some letters, but she can't recognize them at all. Oh well, all in time I guess. PS started today and I am thrilled. It puts me in the fall mindset and fall is my favorite season. That's about all folks!!! Blessings.

Don't look at the dark.

Sometimes we can learn so much from our children. Tonight, my children were playing in our den when they decided they needed a toy from dd's bedroom. DS told dd to go get it. Well, the light in her bedroom was off and it was very dark. Of course, she is terrified of the dark. She came running back into the den yelling its too dark, too dark. With more wisdom than he knows, my ds said to her "Just don't look at the dark, only look at the light." How cool is that? How often in this life do we focus on all things dark. The dark that robs us of our joy and happiness. Darkness seems to follow us everywhere. If we are homeschooling, doing chores, or talking to our dh about something important, darkness tends to loom. It is how we choose to look at things that makes all the difference. Do we tend to look at all that darkness or do we look at the light of Jesus Christ? Do we look for the presence of God or the darkness of evil? I believe that what we choose to look at and how we choose to respond effects us a great deal. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I Am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10. Jesus is the light of the world. No darkness dwells in him. All darkness has to flee in his presence. I speak the light of Jesus Christ in this place.

Sounds so sweet!!!

How great it is to be a mom? This very minute I am listening to my son "play" the guitar while, my 3yo dd sings "I'll fly away." How precious is it to hear such young children sing about our Lord?!?!?! Just my quick brag.LOL Not a lot of time to blog, I am off to attempt to boost the battery on the lawn mower and mow our back yard. It is so tall bigfoot could be hiding out there and we wouldn't know it. I just pray that I can get it started.

Joy come in the Morning

Okay, I feel bad over my vent yesterday. It was a tough day but I should always count my blessings. If that is one thing I should know by now is to count your blessings. I pray that God overlooks my stupid fleshy ways as I give thanks for what I have. Just a quick look at what I am thankful for:

I am thanful that I serve a God of second chances.

I am thankful that I have a wonderful husband.

I am thankful that I have two very active kids.

I an thankful that I have one on the way.

I am thankful for the roof over my head and the fact that it doesn't even leak:)

I am thankful that I live in the country because I really don't think I could survive the city life.

I am thankful that I am able to drink coffee again after morning sickness has past.

I am thankful that my husband loves me and all my quirkness and strange undertakens.

I am thankful that I can homeschool my children.

I am thankful that God made me quirky becaue life would be boring if I was like everyone else.

Blessings and have a great day!!!!!!!!

One of those days

Have you ever just had a day when everything was not going right. A day when things were breaking around the house and the kids were trying their best to irritate. I am having one of those days. It started out good enough. I woke up energized and ready to start the day. I got cereal out for breakfast as I was going to be too busy for a larger meal. The cereal of course was stale. Oh well, on to the job of cutting weeds. Oh wait, the weed eater just broke. Ok, I will pressure was the porch as it is dirty from our cat and 5 kittys. Uggg, the pressure washer won't start. Have know idea why. Ok, I will mow our very tall grass. No gas in the lawnmower. I will just get the gas jug, but wait, someone has stolen our gas jug full of gas from our front yard no less. To top it all off, dh's work truck is broke down and my kids are getting sick with a sore throat. That may explain why they have been sooooooo difficult today. After getting supper and picking up the house, I am just going to call it a day and go to bed. After all "Joy Comes in the Morning."
