Drivers Licence for Stephen (and Moma)

     Stephen was homeschooled so he never took drivers education in school.  He did learn the basics of car maintenance and repair.  He turned 16 and then 18 and he still hadn't taken the test to get his licence.  This summer he has been doing yard work and helping with the maintenance and yard maintenance at our church.  The man who is his boss couldn't believe he was 19 and had graduated and still no licence.  
     So the other day we set out to the DMV for him to take the test.  After 3 trips to there, one to the school to get his transcript (he actually graduated through our church school) and one trip to the revenue office for an ID, he was ready to take the test.  He didn't have to take it the old fashioned way I did, he took it on an IPAD and the way it is set up is there are 25 questions and when you have passed so many it will shut off and tell you that you passed.  Me and another couple of Moma's talked and waited as our children took the test.  
     Praises they all 3 got a

     So now I told him we are going to be like Driving Miss Daisey, only it is going to be driving Moma.  He has between 30 days and 6 months to take the driving part and get his regular licence.  He may not have got it at the age everyone expected but he has it now. I am not sure who is more excited me or him.

God bless,

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.

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…
