Check out my friend, Jenny's website.. she sell's purses!

And if you are looking for a cute baby shower gift, my friend Meredith's sister-in-law makes diaper cakes... check out her site
Baby Cakes.

I think they both ship to anywhere! check it out!


Well, everyone else I know has been sick and their kids have been sick.. so I guess it is my turn! AGAIN! when will the sniffles and the coughs ever end? I am so excited for summer! that is when everyone is usually healthy! I think I need to buy some bubbles, like the hamsters have, and put the boys in there to keep them away from germs! ( I am kidding of course!)
So, Isaiah wakes up with a stuffy nose and tries to take a deep breath and says, "mommy! I can't smell! get a tissue and clean out the mocho's (spanish for buggers ?)" He is sooo cute.. he coughs and says we have to go see the doctor so he can make him feel better.. he loves our doctor and the free suckers!
Isaiah is potty training now.. he is doing really well.. no more diapers, just big boy underwear.. he still can't figure out the poopy part though.. we have had two accidents, one at church! yikes! anyone got tips on how to get a boy to figure out how to poop sitting down? he does everything else well...
Kendall is HUGE! He and Isaiah are only ONE POUND apart in weight! Isaiah will be 4 in August and Kendall 2 in June! and they are almost in the same size clothes, everyone asks if they are twins! And Kendall is starting to talk, he is sooo cute!
And I woke up yesterday feeling terrrrible! Stuffy head, runny nose! Amazingly, Roger is not sick.. but he hasn't been around much this past couple of weeks, he has been pulling in a lot of overtime.. so I think that saved him from catching the bug!
I have to have surgery on Friday morning.. a hysterectomy.. so pray for me.. pray for my mom that the boys will be good for her, I have to stay overnight!
Well, there are winter storm warnings.. so I think we might have to stay home tonight.. we live in the country, so it is a bit of a drive to church.. I'm sad to miss wednesday night service, but the kids are sick and it's too cold to go out...
Gotta go.. hope everyone is doing well and feeling good...

Little is much.....

Just what I am thinking about, today...
I have been sorta keeping up with this blogg that I ran across through my friend Devin. It's about this little boy named Tristan He was born with T-18 and he passed away yesterday afternoon! It was sooo sad.. but it really opened my eyes..
He lived 55 days.. and that was a long time for a baby with t-18. His parents really cherished every moment of his life, not knowing if it was his last.. all the while trusting and praising the Lord for their blessings. Their faith was so strong.. and they were such a blessing to me...
Sometimes I feel so sorry for myself if I have a small issue and I have to get a reality check... I am so blessed and I have beautiful children and I have to cherish EVERY MOMENT that I have with them, to teach them to do right and love the Lord!
Little is much when God is in it! I love that song! and it reminds me of this family and little Tristan.. they had little time with him.. but because they loved God and trusted Him.. they cherished every moment and meant a lot to them...

Re-posted from a friends blogg.... read it, it's good!

I was reading a friends blogg.. Dave Buckley's..some of you might know him from MBBC...
anyways.. his last post is really awesome and I asked him if I could repost it onto my blogg...
For those of you who have children, this really hit's home concerning raising our children in a Godly manner and doing all we can to teach them how to deal with daily struggled in their lives as they get I hope you take the time to read this and will be blessed!

Guard my precious ones!

God has blessed me with five children, and ooooooh how precious they are to me! They are not perfect, but at ages 9, 7, 5, 2, and 8 months, the heartaches of parenting have only been tasted in very small dosages.

Yet, I am fully aware of the potentialities - their flesh is weak, their minds easily deceived, their desires could develop taste buds that find evil to be delicious. I must fight for their souls! I must do all I can and am responsible to do as their father. I must earnestly pray for them, pour the scriptures into their minds, model godliness, show them their faults, give them hope in Jesus.

I fall short here. It's easy to reside in a place of ease when my kids are delightfully innocent and joyfully tender.

The following testimony, from one of my modern day heroes, caused me to feel that urgency again. He tells of the agony of having a wayward son, and what he did to fight for his son and to battle his own sinful inclinations during that time.
And, by the grace of God, his prodigal son did return home.

“Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” (Psalm 126:5, ESV). My main memory of Abraham’s prodigal years is tears. As I knelt in prayer, I would remember the 9-year-old Abraham walking with me to 6:30 a.m. winter prayer meetings—willingly. I would take hold of Jesus’ cloak and cry:

“O Jesus, please, don’t let go of him.”

He was never more than a breath away. One moment I would be rejoicing over some simple blessing, and then suddenly he was there, a heaviness, an ache. I would wonder what he was doing. And I would pour another prayer into the great censer before the throne.

Then there was fear. Will he destroy himself? Will he ruin a girl’s life? Will he get a disease? Will he turn out to be an Esau? To survive I had to make the daily transfer: “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you” (Psalm 55:22). Every day the sorrow was new. Every day sustaining mercies were new (Lamentations 3:23).

All the while God was making me a broken-hearted pastor. God loves His people through the pain of His shepherds. None of our sufferings is wasted. We do not graduate from the seminary of sorrows in this life. But oh, how glad I am that this class is over, and Abraham is home. Thank You, Jesus, for not letting go.

You can read Abraham's short testimony of His conversion and some excellent insights in how parents of wayward children can reach out to them (wise advice from a former "wayward" child) here

I can't believe it has been so long since I last blogged! I am totally addicted to facebook! It's nice because it is sooo easy and private!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years! The winter weather here is really harsh today and we all have colds, but I guess that goes hand in hand with living in Michigan! :-)
I am glad to say that my step-grandson D'Marrius is doing very well and is quite a cutie.. Thank you so much to all of you who prayed for him...he is a blessing.
The boys are getting so big and Kendall is almost as big as Isaiah already! I am so thankful for my boys!
Well, I just wanted to stop and drop a note.. to keep this thing a little current!
I hope everyone is having a great day!
