I saw The Blog Hop and thought wow, I have to be a part of that....do I have much spare time.....No......Oh I mean...YES, always time to fit in a quick post right? I am a challenged blogger, that is right. If you visit me you will find that, I am not the best at it( I know NO Grammar can you tell? )....but The Lord works through us right? Here at my blog you will
hopefully feel relaxed and want to sit back and read a bit about how the Lord is working in my life!
'His Grace Is Sufficient For Thee'
I am a child of God, saved in 1998 :) I am married to my perfect husband, well not perfect but who am I to talk.....I am by far the chiefest of sinners. One thing I love about God is he can take the most lost, hardened, messed up person and completely change them for HIS glory!!! I can say that from experience as God has worked in my heart...continues to everyday, as I allow Him too!
I also have 2 sweet boys....(yes, boys can be sweet and boys at the same time!)lol.
Austen is my caring, and handsome 13 year old and Blake my happy, smiley pants boy....is 6!
There are many special people in my life that I am ever so grateful for! The Lord has truly blessed me. I especially am thankful for my Pastor, His Family and my beloved brothers and sisters at church!
I have struggled with pain a good part of my adult life, I don't say that to complain but to tell you this.... it has made me rely on the Lord more then ever before. I see God's grace !! I have learned (learning) not to take my Salvation lightly.......It is a GIFT! I was diagnosed with FMS Fibromyalgia and CFS Chronic Fatigue Syndrome about 5 months ago now. I am so thankful God gave me a name for my pain. I am learning to be thankful, and to rely on God to see me through. It has made me stronger, and certainly gave me a compassion for others in pain that I never had before!!
I think the 1 things you can count on here at my blog is ...To Be Encouraged!! Ya you may get your toes stepped on and may even have different opinions...that's OK to.
I do however pray that the Lord uses me to be an encouragement to you, and to let you know you are never alone on this journey! The Lord talks about the aged women teaching the younger women.....that is my goal to please my Lord and for Him to use my experiences,and even mistakes to help others!
Please feel free to comment any time and HAPPY Blog Hopping!!
Ps ...I LOVE to make KJV scripture Tags, they are FREE please feel free to snag any here or over at www.branmadetags.blogspot.com
As I have been reading my Bible I felt conviction of going back through some specific verses on our tongue. The Lord knew we needed direction in this area sisters!
There are time for me that life just gets hectic, and it's rush, rush, hurry...hurry. I just absolutely seem to always BLOW it in those difficult times!
And guess who gets the brunt of it??? Ya, you know it.....My family. It is so sad that we can be so kind to our friends but we can treat the ones we love the most like dirt.
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
the word ' wholesome' here means health-healing-cure, also refreshing, deliverence .
Do you have a wholesome tongue that is a tree of life....that is refreshing?
Or do you have a tongue that is a breach of spirit?
' breach' means....breaking, fracture, crushing, breach, crash, ruin, shattering
Let us be reminded of God's Word today, let us pray we open our mouth always with kindness..... To our children and husbands especially!
She openeth her mouth with wisdom ; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness.
Let us pray...
Teach me, and I will hold my tongue : and cause me to understand wherein I have erred .
In Jesus Name, Amen

Greeting fellow Bloggers!
Hope you are having a good Thursday afternoon.
I am preparing for youth camp. To be honest, I really didn't want to go, for fear of the stress of preparing and getting there(motor home drive & All), so many obstacles. But the Lord has opened the doors and I believe we are suppose to go. I just fight the flesh....I am weak!!! We will just be going for a few days, but the kids are exited! I don't think we can go wrong being with brothers and sisters in Christ, under the preaching, and away from these awful worldly influences!
I am praying God will work in each child that is attending and that they would be ready to hear and accept what God has for them. It is always a blessing to see God work in their life! Austen really needs this too!!
I will be sad to leave my dear hubby behind.
I will be driving my grandparents 30ft Motor home........That otta be a sight to see ugh
Ya all have a good day!
Off to do more laundry.... (ha my life story)

EVER WONDER ...
Why the sun lightens our hair,
But darkens our skin?
Why women can't put on mascara
With their mouth closed?
Why don't you ever see the headline
'Psychic Wins Lottery'?
Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?
Why is it that doctors call what
They do 'practice'?
Why is lemon juice made with
Artificial flavor, and dish washing
Liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all
Your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the
Slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there mouse-flavored
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Why do they sterilize the needle
For lethal injections?
You know that indestructible black
Box that is used on airplanes? Why
Don't they make the whole plane out
Of that stuff?!
Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments
When they are all stuck together?
If con is the opposite of pro, is
Congress the opposite of progress?
If flying is so safe, why do they call
The airport the terminal?
