Life as I know It, where I have been and a giveaway....

        I know I have not posted lately because I got hurt and I could not get on the computer for awhile then I just got the blahs.    
     Just to let you know, if you don't already.  On August 31st I was helping my daughter-in-law hang curtains in the kids bedrooms in their house they were getting ready to move into.  Well, I fell after we hung the last one and ended up going by ambulance to the ER.  This led to braces, a walker, 2 knee surgeries, a pulled hamstring and oh so much more.  I am still recuperating from the 2nd knee surgery but am doing much better.  This has been a long process.  
      Good things have come from this bad thing such as Jenny being forced to drive, people learning to stand on their own feet a little and I have received so many, many wonderful blessings from food, money, visits, cards and most of all prayers.  Still I have let the devil put me in the blahs but the blahs need to go.

      So, I decided to have a giveaway and be a blessing to someone else and at the same time maybe get a few people to visit my blog which I hope to get moving and keep moving the rules are this....

1) For once chance to win...comment below
2) Follow my blog or let me know you do for another chance
3) Post about this on your blog for another chance 
4) If you do all of the above you get a bonus chance to win

God bless,

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
