**Good morning sisters

Annette: so happy to see you again! For awhile last year it was only you and me:love: Were you thinking of going veggie? I am sortof in bewteen. I still make meat dishes for the family, but eat less and less of it myself. Glad to have you back.

Erika: sweet sister!:love::kiss: missed you there...What had you so anxious? Were you on vacay with the fam?

Steph: Do you have upcoming vacay? Can't remember reading it...I have this one week left. I'm trying to milk it for all it's worth. Had to talk to myself these last couple of days to be fully present and happy and not always wanting more...

verse for the day:
1 Timothy 6:6-11
New International Version (NIV)
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that

Father, thank You for every good and perfect gift you have given. Lord, I want to be thankful and appreciative of EVERYTHING you have showered on me.

Today I am thankful for:

a willing husband who will stay up til 1 am at a drive in watching stupid kid movies to please his family
to have time off and resources to go here and there
the health you have given me
money to buy good food
samma's job

Lord, do not let me forget the blessings you have showered me with...let's make our own list today does help to see it in black and white. I wish you all a superbe day!:love:

Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

Happy Lord's day!

Today was my son's birthday- great day.

Yes last week was vaca with my parents and brothers family. Its the first time we have done it. My brother never comes. My brother is hard for me.
I feel he is very self-absorbed and not good to my mom. She frets and worries over getting time with him and his kids.

Anyways, I have been very convicted and Humbled this weekend, and then again big time in church this am.
I have held jealousy maybe and resentment towards my brother for years. Its odd because I love him, I am proud of him, I talk highly of him in public....but I watch how selfish he is, I watch how he hurts my mom and how she still thinks he is the best thing ever.....

I have been convicted that a lot of the problem is ME....I worried to go on the vaca, and truthfully I was not nice. I was a bit of a jerk actually. It was like I knew it would be hard, I knew he would be selfish, I knew my mom would be anxious- and I let it take over my mood and attitude. I forgot that God is in control, NOT ME, that I am to be humble, a servant. I let ME take over and didn't trust in the Lord. I really showed a negative side of myself, I was as much a problem as my brother this last week.
I have emailed him and apologized. I have asked him if we can meet and talk and hash out our issues. Please Pray! I need it, and I want God to soften my heart and my brother's.
I want to LOVE him as God wants me to. I want to continue to feel humbled and come to the conversation full of God's grace and not full of ME.

I have been praying for ya'll and did again today. Kris, I agree- we all have so much to be thankful for, and its so easy to forget it.
I am thankful for-
--my beautiful birthday boy Andrew- he lights me up, he is my snuggle bug.
--my amazing husband who has taken on so much as I have had lots of illness and pain in last few years.
--amazing parents who taught me from birth to love God, how to serve God, how to be in a good marriage- they are amazing and I am so blessed to have them.
--rain ( we have had so much this year and I get frustrated, but it really is something to be thankful for)
--Church- today God really spoke to me and convicted and humbled me- I needed it

I have been amazed over the years of how much there is to be thankful for when you stop and look. In every hard situation or bad thing there is always something somewhere in it to say Thank you Lord for.... Practicing this- finding something to be thankful for in hard times has been amazing for my relationship with God.

Lord God, be with my christian ladies this week...Help us each remember to be thankful to you for all you give us-in every situation, good or bad. Help us to look for ways to serve, other and you....Give us your strength to follow through on our goals, and keep us focused on YOU in everything we do this week.

Kris.....veggie, I haven't been a true vegetarian since I was in junior high.....but I was raised with an affinity towards it. I definitely love vegetarian food.....and I like having a lot of vegetarian food in my life. I just don't see it possible at this point:). Every time I hear that someone has gone vegetarian I consider it, our neighbors talked quite a bit about how they have gone vegetarian as a family of three this year at our Fourth of July barbecue. So many people are vegan these days it is hard for me to consider any animal product consumption vegetarian, even though it is:). My dad has always only liked including fish as the only meat product in our diets....yes, he didn't like to include butter, milk, or egg yolks.....vegetarian just feels right. Sorry for the long winded vague answer......I just have an affinity for the vegetarian/vegan diet, mainly for health reasons and taste:).....I just like to stay informed:), I always have:).



Thank you Alice. We usually post verses and pray for one another. You are most welcome******************
