Valentines 2011-I will never forget!

 Some years me and my hubby have celebrated Valentines and some we haven't, depended on if he had to work, funds etc.  Well this year we decided to celebrate with a little prodding from my kiddos, little did I know what was about to happen. Stick with me to the end of this story, it will be worth it, I promise.

Hubby is unemployed so money is really tight so we decided to eat at home and with my little helper fairies-Jonathan, Jenny, Amanda and Stephen I cooked chicken breast, loaded mashed potaotoes, mac and cheese, baked beans and hawaiian rolls.  Amanda decorated the table and it was so pretty.

I thought now what can I do for a gift and I went to dollar tree and they had these chocolate lips and I grabbed them.  I made hubby a card and put a poem in it and part of it talked about when we first kissed (that is a story for another day) and I gave him the lips.  I was so excited about it.  He loves it by the way and he even cried.  Of course I had no idea what he had done cause he told me he had no money.
He made me a card on the computer and the picture above is one of the pictures on the card.  It had the sweetest poem inside and he signed it and I was so excited and then I saw he had written something at the bottom; he wrote and asked if I would marry him again-we will be married 25 years in August, in fact we celebrate 10 days after our only daughter gets married.  Anyway I was so excited and thought it was so sweet.  He then asked me don't you want to put it on?  I looked at him like he was nuts and then I saw "IT".  He had taped a flower shaped diamond ring to the inside picture.  When we got married he could not afford an engagement ring so 25 years later I have the ring.  Oh yeah I said yes.

As for the rest of the story on July 16, 2011 we will be having a small get together and renewing our vows,  I will share more about that in a different post.  I have to admit it was a Valentines I will never forget.  I hope yours was blessed too.

God bless,

PS It wasn't just the ring either but that after 25 years, 3 kids, lots of ups and downs and so many changes he wants to marry me all over again :)

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…
