I Stand in Awe

I was late watching this but am so blessed that I wanted to put it on my blog where I can find it whenever I want.

What an amazing testimony to stand in front of a huge audience of peers and fans and without an ounce of shame sing about God and bring them to their feet. That's what witnessing is all about. Standing firm for your faith. What a blessing Carrie Underwood is.

There is so much I want to do

There is so much I want to do, I just keep running out time. Then I think that I am going to go back and do it. I guess I just need to start from where I am. Yep, start from where I am. So that's what I am going to do, really, it is.

New Year's Thoughts because I don't want to lose them

I found these on a blog hop and I want to keep up from them. They came from a blog called Connie's thoughts:
Thursday, December 30, 2010


I am the new year. I am an unspoiled page in your book of time. I am your next chance at the art of living.

I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned during the last twelve months about life.

All that you sought the past year and failed to find is hidden in me; I am waiting for you to search it out again and with more determination.

All the good that you tried to do for others and didn't achieve last year is mine to grant...providing you have fewer selfish and conflicting desires.

In me lies the potential of all that you dreamed but didn't dare to do, all that you hoped but did not perform, all that you prayed for but did not yet experience. These dreams slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of an enduring purpose.



I WILL.....

like Paul, FORGET those things which are behind and press forward;
like David, LIFT up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help;
like Abraham, TRUST implicitly in my God; like Enoch, WALK in daily fellowship with my heavenly Father; like Jehoshaphat, PREPARE my heart to seek God; like Moses, CHOOSE rather to suffer than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; like Daniel, COMMUNE with God at all times; like Job, BE PATIENT under all circumstances; like Caleb and Joshua, REFUSE to be discouraged because of superior numbers; like Joseph, TURN MY BACK to all destructive advances; like Gideon, ADVANCE even though my friends be few; like Aaron and Hur, UPHOLD the hands of my spiritual leaders; like Isaiah, CONSECRATE MYSELF to do God's work; like Andrew, STRIVE to lead my brother to a closer walk with Christ; like John, LEAN upon the bosom of the Master and imbibe of His Spirit; like Stephen, MANIFEST a forgiving spirit toward all who seek my hurt; like Timothy, STUDY the Word of God; like the Heavenly Host, proclaim the message of peace on earth and good will toward all men; like my Lord Himself, OVERCOME all earthly allurements by refusing to succumb to their enticements.

Realizing that I cannot hope to achieve these objectives by my own strength, I will rely upon Christ for "I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME." Phil. 4:13.

I . . .

I saw a meme or something of the like as I was catching up on my blog reading. It was on

I am a Christian, wife, mom, daughter, sister, teacher,youth worker, friend, someone who sees the glass as half full.

I wonder what the future holds although I know who hold the future.

I hear sounds of happiness and also of sadness.

I see new wonders every single day.

I want to be my best, my children to make the right choices, and to have an ever growing understanding of God's strength, power and love.

I am an ordinary person with an extraordinary Father above who knows my every need.

I pretend that everything is fine but hold on to the knowledge that God is in control so it really will be fine.

I feel blessed that my God will take care of all my needs.

I worry so I pray.

I cry at the drop of a pin-- commercials, movies, tv shows-- life in general.

I am blessed and highly favored.

understand a little more each day and that God has a perfect plan for me.

I say too much when I don't stop and think-- the same things over and over but seem to be talking to a brick wall.

I dream that my boys will have amazing futures and that they will hold tight to God in all situations.

I try to b an example in everything I do.

I hope that my life makes God smile (at least sometimes).

I am a princess because my Father is the King of Kings.

Summer is Flying By

I can't believe how fast summer is going by. I'm grateful for the break.

Tomorrow we are going to see the Astros.

I haven't been as into the Astors since the end of the Killer B's, but Angela is my buddy and she wanted me to go, therefore . . .

This is why I do it

Thursday,I got a message from one of my girls in the company. She and another were going out to eat on Friday night and wanted me to go.

They didn't need anything but a supportive adult who could give them some advice and be their friend.

I really love being able to do this because I don't get to be a friend to my boys, my job is Mom. But these girls already have a parental unit and they want me,an adult, to be a part of their life.

Tonight's just one more example of why I do what I do.
