Special Day

Do you ever just wake up with such joy in your heart? Today was one of those days, granted it is my birthday today but it wasn't was just feelings of joy and knowing that I am blessed beyond measure. I have a God who adores me, a husband who cherishes me, children who love me, family who are there for me, no matter what and friends who are there to laugh with me and support me. I am truly blessed and I owe it all to my Jesus. He is the best gift ever. I hope that each of you have a special day everyday!

flat on my back

do you ever wonder why things happen....maybe God getting your attention...well it could be God wanting me to slow down and me being clumsy....slipped on some pine straw this morning after Sydney and Noah's preschool spring program. I am not sure if I broke a toe or not but it is swollen and hurts, update on that tomorrow after a trip to the doctor.

"Be still and know that I am God." Today was a day to reflect on the last year for Sydney & Noah as they finish their first year in preschool. Milestones are precious and how I wish daddy was here to witness those times. God has a perfect plan and continues to bless our family each and every day. This week I also finished a 10 week Bible study of Breaking Free by Beth Moore. Wow what a journey and I must confess it could have been a deeper journey for myself is I would have done everyday worth of homework. There are still areas that I need to work on and learn to let God be in charge and for myself to become bolder for Christ. During my study I met some wonderful ladies and I pray that God will continue to bless them and open doors for them, as well as help through those strongholds. Remember if we give it to God, He will work it out but we have to let go completely and know that His will is best. Till tomorrow......

Life as a mom

What a sweet sight I was privileged to witness- Noah grabbing Sydney's hand so they could dance together....sometimes they just take my breath away and how sweet they can be to each other...then other times they can beat the stew out of each other....the love that twins have for each other is not like anything that I have seen before....they truly love each other and have that connection...they will love each other, hugs and kisses, beat each other up, play and run around giggling but watch it if you mess with the other sibling....they will defend each other in a heartbeat....they miss the other when they are not around and as I write this they are tackling each on the couch and screaming and crying...what love is this!

We had a great day in the midst of my sore throat. Blessings to all.

You Hide, I Seek

This weekend was filled with lots and lots of rain, the smell of fresh baked french-style country bread, naps, movies, giggles, and a good game of hide and seek.

I just love the sound of my sweet toddlers laughter when I find them hiding in oh so obvious spots (like Sydney's bed) and then they say mommy you hide, I seek....Sydney wanted to hide with me and Noah find us but I explained to her that he does not understand that he is the one seeking and not the one hiding. He loves it when he and sissy go hide and mommy goes to find them. She kept insisting (and if you know her little (rather BIG) personality) then you know how this came out of her mouth: "mommy you hide, I hide and Noah seek" I kept trying to explain to her that Noah doesn't want to to that so I convinced her that we would seek and Noah would hide. Well we tried to accomplish this by sitting in her bed and counting while Noah went to hide over on the floor beside his bed. When we were done counting he jumped up and just giggled. It was so precious.

Little moments like this fill my heart with such joy and know that it won't be like this for long. they will be grown before we know it, that is what my daddy keeps telling me. Oh the words of wisdom from him. Slow down and focus on those sweet babies is what he tells me and enjoy every minute.

To Make You Feel My Love

I was on the Old Red Barn Co. blog earlier just reading a few of her post. While I was reading the song "Make You Feel My Love" came on. I can relate to the words of wanting my husband to feel my love thousands of miles away from me. I hope that you have someone in your life that makes you feel loved and you would go to the ends of the earth to make them feel loved. Life is too short to miss those little opportunities to bring a ray of sunshine their way.

It is amazing how our God works in the midst of this world. He is our "refuge and our fortress". We need to turn to Him to daily to help us in our walk. He also wants to make you feel His love. Are you at a crossroad in your life, not sure which direction you should be traveling. Well He will show you if you allow Him to come into your life, not just one area but all areas of your life.

A group of ladies from our FRG group got together Friday night for a bible study. The book is titled Psalm 91 by Peggy Joyce Ruth. It goes over each line of the psalm and gives inspiring testimonies of God's amazing work today. We were able to share things in our on lives that we see God working as well as areas we need help, like patience, jobs, being Godly women/wives/mommy. God wants us to feel His love. V 14 states, Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him."

To Make You Fell My Love

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I can offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows in the stars of fate
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I will never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry I'd go black and blue
I'd go cold out on the avenue
No there's nothing that i wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin' sea
and on the highway of a grid
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I can make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that i wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love
