Journey Through Life:Date Night Conversations

I have been feeling down, depressed, overwhelmed and sometimes angry for awhile. I have tried so hard to get to a better place. I do better for awhile and then things start making me feel like I am suffocating again. I have tried to pray but sometimes I felt like I wasn't sure if my prayers were even reaching the Lord.

Last night Billy went on a date night for late Valentines since he had to work on the 14th. After we went to eat, we went to Walmart and bought each other something for a gift. We don't do traditional or big but we did have fun picking out the gifts.He wanted a 6 pack of Pepsi's and the first season of "Touched by an Angel" on DVD. I asked for "Bad Moms" on DVD and a "fake" fitbit/watch. He also bought me a teal colored frog cause I needed it,he said.

The best part of the evening though was this, we took a LONG drive, and we had a LONG conversation. We talked about a lot of different things, just light conversation at first and then the talk turned serious. We talked about some of the things we knew were bothering me and things I didn't know were bothering him. I won't discuss what we talked about as it was private but it was good. We now know more of what the other one thinks, feels and wants and not just what we think but what we now know. Some of these seemed tiny to me but were big to him and vice versa. I also learned the Lord has been listening to me all along but I was the one not really listening to Him. Our prayers are always heard, sometimes we just don't listen to what He says in return.
It was a very good conversation. It is also something we will periodically do again in the future. We agreed if we have something to say or ask we will make it a priority and we will discuss it. I have heard some women say their husband won't talk and maybe he won't but maybe he would if you would let him talk and you listen. I recommend couples do as often as they feel necessary for them cause things change as we change but if we don't talk about it, how do we know? Now maybe ya'll already do this and that is good. Maybe we once did but lately we haven't but we sure will continue with this in the future.

Until next time,

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…
