***Good morning sisters


Look to the Word for our solutions right? It only rained a little while and I was able to get outside for 8am just the same. It's all good!

Erika: this too shall passÂ…there is no verse that actually says that (apparently...I google it) but it is a true saying that we can use that is based on several being temporary with it,s suffering etc..

Annette: I remember trying to get my kids to when there is an interesting book, they do :) My challenge this year will be to pull back. I tend to be an over-organizing...a little over bearing mom...

Steph: It is hard at school. Thankfully my dd is the quiet type...she is the peacemaker in her group and not usually the target of any negativity thank son...a different story. this is a new year and I want to be positive.

I need this verse today because I already feel complaints trying to come out of my lips:

Psalm 34
1 I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. 2 My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. 3 Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together. 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. 5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

that is the great thing about the is there to come to our rescue.

My focus today: praise and prayer...praise and prayer...praise and prayer. I will need extra love for my kiddies today because I have some parents that are absent this week and their kids are being babysat even at night and that is REALLY hard on them. If I handle it with love it usually helps...thank You Lord for the Love you have poured out in my heart (romans 5:5) thank You for your often you have helped me.
Help us today Father to keep our focus on you and not get lost in all the little petty details of our short lives...Father use your children today to bring glory to your name! thank you Lord for Annette, Steph and Erika...thank you for giving me sisters here...please bless and protect them today. I ask your blessing on Melissa today's her birthday...please direct her life according to your plan!


Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

I don 't really know how to explain how I m feeling today....I am happy that my little family, my sister and dad are going on a little cruise this weekend, it will be nice and scenic:).

Mixed feelings about upcoming reunion, it may need to just be my sister going. Praying God's will in our decision and my dad''s not easy having a stepmom who isn't interested in aging you in her life.....lord please help us, amen.

Tomorrow, my daughter goes through testing, all prayers will take all day. Lord, please guide her and the doctor in her evaluation...we want to support her and build her up.....we are asking for the testing, unlike my son, no one has suggested testing for her.....but, her grades have steadily gone own hill over the pat four a point where we are scared to enter a new school year without professional help. Our help only helped her fail last year:(. I know, this is an opportunity to figure out how to support her.

Kris--hmmm, I can't say that I am controlling, I may be the most uncontrolling person:)...I am more of a people pleaser....all of this makes it challenging for me to lead and guide others, such as my little family. I mainly just want each of my kids to reach a goal....besides staying up way after than mom wants them too. :) but, something healthy and productive that will make them feel good about themselves:).

Erika--I miss the kids way before they start heading back to school too....but, there are a couple of things I enjoy about it...routine:), I usually go to lunch or coffee with a friend shortly after school stars, and my Motherwise Bible study starts up again:). I am nervous about my youngest....her friends and the teachers meant a lot to her in elementary school and now she is heading off to middle school at an artsy magnet school...only a couple of students got accepted from her elementary school. My oldest daughter is at the is an arts school and the nature of te school can be very elitist and superficial......but, the kids are much kinder than those at our old grade school. I am concerned because of that, and my daughter loves art, but she is not "artsy" she thrives in, we will appreciate each day and keep her in sports:)....she actually wants to be a politician, scary! She s very good at being everyone's friend...hopefully she will be in a new school too.

Steph---wow.....rough situation for your renter, not easy at all.

Ps. 11:7-8 O Lord, you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever. The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

I didn't mean to say is was a quote....
No its just something I always said to myself, it can be derived from many verses, but not a quote.... JUst a true statement that always helped me refocus...

My hubbie went back to work (teacher) today. My kids go back Monday.
I am super bummed today. Next week (the week the kids go back) is always really hard for me. I get depressed easily the first month of school. Ya'll pray for me. I am praying that I will not go that route this year, that I will find my JOY in my LOrd and find ways to serve. This workers comp law suit stuff keeps me so limited. I can't even volunteer!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH...

I am gonna go read now.

Talk soon!

Hello Ladies:)

Isaiah 43:2
Amplified Bible (AMP)
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.

Well, the renter just text me she may not have the money this week unless Jeremy helps her? It's just her checks now. Not sure what that means but I told her (Shannon) that I was praying for her to get through this rough patch. I am kind of hoping Jeremy:evil: moved out and it's just her since he has been cussing out my DH Aunt and she really seems like a good person. Not sure I mentioned it before but he even had the ex-wife move in. It's too bad that they have a child together and one on the way or recently arrived. At least, it is just her name on the lease.

Worked on mowing yesterday after work got the riding portion done. Tonight's agenda will probably be setting the trap for the hornets, sawing wood and maybe some shoving sticks and brush in the trash can. It has turned pretty cold here it will be excellent weather for this. That is, if I can gather the energy after my strength training class to do anything:nono4:

Lol, I just looked up this too shall pass recently and found out it wasn't actually a quote from the Bible recently.

Prayer sent up for my friends their family just now:love:
