Catch up-MIL day, Making your home a haven and Autumn through my eyes!

Ever get so busy and before you realize you are behind on everything?  That is how I am feeling right now.  I saw this graphic and thought it was perfect.
So here goes, first I am catching up on my Autumn Through My Eyes! Days 19-22

Baby Piper born this October day

 Also I am sure many of you have never heard of Mother-in-law's day and I had not either until the first year my son and his wife were married.  It is the last Sunday in October each year.  My Daughter-in-law has never missed remembering me or the day.  This year she gave me these adorable salt & pepper shakers.  I collect them and I love all things pumpkin so they are perfect for me as she is for our family.

Also this is the last week for the Make your Home a Haven challenge for this year.

This week’s challenge:
Focus on the kitchen, the heart of the home.
Cook things with pleasant aromas like homemade bread, pies, and cookies. Don’t wait to have a reason to make something special – do it simply to show love to your family. Invite your kids and/or hubby to cook along side of you – make memories in the kitchen – test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remember the importance of dinner time around the table as a family.  Work on showing love, goodness and faithfulness to your family this week.
I hope your candle is still burning, the music is playing, and you are spending time showing your family they are special, whether it is by playing some games, watching a movie while snuggled together or baking them a special treat.  The challenge is over for this year but it is one I plan to try and continue all through out the year with my family.
God bless and I hope you have enjoyed catching up with me.

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…
