My Prince Charming

Once in awhile someone wonderful comes in your life when you least expect it. Kinda like a falling star. My life has been blessed by my 4 amazing kids, but other parts of life was not what I had ever dreamed of. A lot of pain and hurt mixed with few happy moments in between. Life changed 3 years ago but continued to pray to God asking for direction. January of this year I was release by God to move forward. I continued my walk with HIM, praying seeking and devoting everything to him. Someone new comes along, swoops you off your feet and cares for you. It amazes me still at how he has blessed my life with an amazing man, a merciful, humble man of God ! Someone who shares my same belief and values. Someone who LOVES with his whole heart and unconditionally. Its amazing to me the little things you put aside for many years and forget about to then have them handed back to you... like hugs, kisses, tenderness, communication on levels never reached. I watch him with his own girls, how tender and sweet he is, then watch him with my 2 younger children and there is that same tenderness. He fills a void, knowing and respecting that they have a daddy. My children watch him with me and they will know what a Man of God looks like. For that I am so grateful! Thank you to so many for prayers and love and so much support.

LOVE Never Fails

Have you heard the new song by Brandon Heath? Love never fails...oh you must!! it over and over and over again. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and Thank Jesus for the Love in your life..weither it be your spouse or special person, your kids, your family, your friends..or the HOPE that your life is blessed with daily ! So many days can go by with running, and always going that we dont stop to really enjoy the laughter of our lives..enjoy the simple things. I have traveled a road that I wouldnt have picked for myself, but I am SOOO thankful I am here on it! I used to want a beautiful silver diamond ring, I was given one..then it was gone like a blink of an eye...taken from heart broken. I prayed..God is what I realized..a silver band with no beginning and no end is more then enough. A dozen roses is nothing compared to a single flower in a vase alone..there is something about that simplicity! A walk holding hands with the one you love is to be cherished and held so tight! A dinner with your family is priceless compared to a expensive dinner out ! A night out at the movies, sitting in silence cant be compared to a fun movie night at home with laughter and memories. So start..start today show Love in everything you do !

Wow how time flies !

My life seemed to stop there for a bit. But as I stand up, dust off I am now ready for the next chapter to start!
So many things to say, yet so little time. My goal ~ to continue to walk forward, eyes up and know there are MANY great plans ahead. Many unseen and even unknown but my trust is in HIM !
I hope this New Year brings much JOY, HAPPINESS, CALMNESS, and SWEET SWEET Memories for everyone !

Closer Walk with God

So many times in life, it seems we just skate by. I grew up in the Church. My mom raised my siblings and I the best she knew how. I have always stayed in church...missing here or there. But lately I have been walking a new path, one that I am not sure of where it is going. This leads me to hold onto God even tighter than I have ever ! My prayer life has changed so much that I hunger for my time alone, even finding myself praying every second. At times my worlds seems as if it is falling apart...then I grab a hold and close my eyes and start praying. I haven't been posting things lately because of the trials I am in at the moment. I hope to start back soon but for the mean time, I encourage whoever reads this to jump in, grab a hold and start that precious Closer Walk with GOD. Its amazing and rewarding !

Wearing the Cape of TRUST !

Although many details will be left in the hands of my heavenly Father, but there are some that can be shared!
Why is it that we have to walk on paths that we either shouldn't be on because of choice or paths that God allows us to be on while he molds us and shapes us.
If we could only be just be on that path of the straight and narrow, hard yet rewarding in the end.
Why is it that so many especially those we love seem to make the wrong choices and our hands are tied as to what to do in helping other than just Pray !
I have learned many things over this past week with the amazing Cape of TRUST.
Many things I just want to run and hide from but know I can't.
My only choice is to Pray and TRUST.
In one of my studies I have been not only reading,
but learning the many things that God has brought to my attention
that need molding and reshaping but the words
"Shut up and Pray!"
I don't care for the word Shut up,
but in the way I use it quietly to myself in this case seems different.
It seems to really get my attention.
I kinda feel like I am some crazy lady looking in the mirror telling myself to shut up and pray.
I will really be worried if I begin to answer myself.
So for now I will just keep trusting and listening the best I can.
I guess all of this to say, there are so many of us either men or women who are learning to TRUST and obey.
As our week begins, my prayer is not only for myself but for many others to

Friends for Life !

Sitting poolside watching my youngest play with her friend, I was truly taken back. Her little friends mom is one of my best friends. I have known my friend since she was 4.

Its amazing to watch our two girls giggle and play. Act out plays and sing songs to the top of their lungs. All things that their mommies used to do believe it or not. Watching them is like seeing myself and my friend together so many years ago. Where does time go?

Not having a care in the world. Telling secrets and not worrying about it turning into gossip. Singing and not caring what it sounded like or caring who we were annoying. Doing anything for a laugh, even if it didnt make sense or wasnt even funny.

Oh cherish the moments of laughter, giggles and the crazy singing !

Even when they look like this! *wink*

From the Garden to my friends counter top

Recently we celebrated the LOVED 4th of July. Every year we gather at a friends house to swim and BBQ to later enjoy the snap, crackle and pops of the great fireworks. I grabbed what flowers were available in the garden and took them as a "thank you" to my friend. This year we had some fabulous red roses that smelled like no others. They were amazing! We added some white daisy's as well as some "blue" flowers from a shrub under the window. Something small, yet so pretty! Oh and that cake...simply YUMMY, triple chocolate chunk with Fluffy white frosting. So, so bad !
