Someone knew me...

I don't know who thought up the idea for the cartoon Dora the Explorer, but they must have known me!

Do as I say, not as I do....

I was just thinking about this today... I was reading through some of the devotions in my little "daily bread" that we get free at church... and I was skimming through one talking about Believing God.. it said a lot of people believe in some sort of god..but we need to believe God..
Acts 27:25
Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
We need to believe in God and have faith.. but we also need to believe that what He says is true.. Paul says "that it shall be even as it was told me"

but anyways.. a thought popped in my head..
I nag my husband about eating sugary snacks, especially in front of the kids...
yes I said nag...he probably thinks that would be a suitable word to use..
anyways.. I try not to let Isaiah eat candy if I don't have to, I give him somthing to eat that are good for him.. and it works, and he thinks they are exciting snacks.. sometimes, on special occasions he will get candy and might taste it and then put it down half-eaten or not eaten at all.. he likes fruit, and would rather have apples, pineapple bits or bananas! I am so proud of him...
ANYWAYS! back to the subject.. one day my husband says to me... well, they will do as I say, not as I do...
in our spiritual life, is that how I am? am I so great at giving advice that
I don't have the willpower to follow myself? wow...I have had apiritual epiphany!
this prompts me to stop what I am doing and BEG God to give me willpower to do as I say, to watch what I say, to not be so judgemental to think that someone else "needs" my "golden" advice---but to pray for them instead! I need to pray more and speak less! I need to believe God when He says he hears my prayers, and let Him do His will!

just looking at pictures...

here are some new and old pictures that I have scanned...

more to come later...

What I was reading today....

Ever feel as if you need to get away?
So did Jesus..
Mark 1:35
And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
Ever have so many demands that you can't stop for lunch? He can relate.
Make 6:31
And He said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
Do your friends ever let you down? When Christ needed help his friends dozed off.
Matthew 26:40
And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

When you turn to Him for help, He runs to you to help. Why? He knows how you feel. He's been there...So go to Him.

--by Max Lucado

Isn't that good? God is there, just waiting for us to ask for help.. all we have to do is ask.. Yet so many times, things happen in our lives and the flesh makes us think.. where was God when these bad things happen? why didn't He help me?
He ws there.. we never asked... we sometimes get so busy trying to do everything ourselves...God is good all the time, all the time, God is good!

I hope this is a blessing to someone to day... it was to me..

My pastor's wife is so good..
she said a lot of good things in church today.. but something funny stuck out that I wanted to write in my blogg..
We spend the first three years of our childrens lives teaching them to walk, talk and play.. we then spend the next fifteen years of thier lives trying to get them to sit down, be still and be quiet!!!

To all the mothers of boys.. or just live with boys (husbands)

The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin , Texas ...

Things I've learned from my boys (honest and not kidding):

1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. foot house 4
inches deep.

2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3. A 3-year old boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a superman cape. It is strong
enough, however if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9. A six-year old boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a
36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.

10. Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old boy.

11. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

12. Super glue is forever.

13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15. VCR's do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18. You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

20. The fire department in Austin , TX has a 5-minute response time.

21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24. 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

25. Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without

No one is perfect.....

I recently joined the secret sisters at church... it's like secret pals, and I already got something from my secret sister! It was so nice, a bag full of goodies----lotion, shower gel, a candle and a little devotional book written by Max Lucado called Everday Blessings.. it's really nice and I thought I would share something from it...

Would you forgive a wanted murderer to lead a nation out of bondage? Would you call upon a fugitive to carry the Ten Commandments? God did... Called his name through a burning bush. Scared old Moses right out of his sandals!
The reassuring lesson is clear. God.. uses people to change the world. People! Not saints or superhumans or geniuses, but people.

John 13:18 I know whom I have chosen.

pictures of my boys

I've been tagged

Well, I was tagged by Steph, and I didn't even realize it.. I need to read more carefully!
She wanted us to write 5 things about ourselves that you might not know.. so here I go....

1. I am very sensative, my feelings get hurt very easily. I guess I take things too personal, a lot of times.. I am always asking God to give me strength and to be a little more thick skinned. I try to hide this about myself, so I guess I can act tough.
2. I like doing make-up and hair.. I would like to go to cosmeltology school one day to learn to do makeup and hair.. just for myself or to do family or friends hair for special occasions.
3. My first job was at Self Serve Lumber.. I was the first girl to work there and the last.. I worked there when I was sixteen... I guess they thought it was to risky to have a girl doing all that hard labor of cleaning and doing heavy duty lifting...
4. Like Donnette, I thought that I would never have kids, strike that.. never be ABLE to have kids, because I have I got used to that thought and was fine with it..
I have two boys now... and I love them sooo much.. I can't imagine my life without them, they are so funny and precious.. I am truly blessed.
5. It's hard to think of 5 things someone might not know about me.. let me see...I am left handed, I am supposed to wear glasses, I love cheese!, I hate baths, love showers, did not love being pregnant, but loved the baby! I am very impatient, don't like when people waste time doing nothing (my husband)

so there is something! so now i tag All my friends to tell me 5 things! good luck!!!!
