random heart moments

It has been a while guys, so you have to hear it today!
Do a little research. Take some time from your day and pray for the unborn. Pray for the adults who conceive these gifts and those who can't. Pray for God's forgiveness. Hug your children. Take time out today to talk to your children. What are they thinking about? What do they like to do? What are they studying in school? Who are they hanging out with? What is their favorite color? Why? You might be surprised at some of their answers! Thank God for your precious children. Thank God for His will in your life. Remember those who have no children and are filled with sorrow. Have a fun and wonderful weekend. But take some quiet time to talk to God and express your thanks. Pray for healing in the lives of those effected by the tragedy of losing a child by health, accidents, war, or abortion.

Thought for the day:

A moment of silence for God to listen to your heart is worth more than the most eloquent of words. God hears us differently than we hear others. He can hear what we are 'really' saying. Sometimes words can't describe what our hearts are saying. He can hear that too! Just be in His presence. Talk or not. He WILL hear you.

potty talk and signs of spring

The girls gave me quite a scare today. Neither would go tee-tee after the horrible stomach virus I was so afraid they were dehydrating. They don't want to eat either. So I called the doctor and they told me to bring them in tomorrow morning if they are not better. So we went to Walmart and they picked out some things they might want to snack on and drink. This is only allowed when they are sick!!! Anyway we picked up some applesauce, bananas, juice, powerade and such and came home. I am so proud of their choices. Wouldn't you know that now they are eating and drinking MUCH better. LuLu even wet a few diapers and went potty once too! She started going potty last week. She is even going to get a diaper or going to stand in front of the toilet to let me know she wants to go! Since she says very little I really have to rely on body language but it is going pretty well. She also has VUG (bladder reflux) so I don't push her besides the fact that she is only 17 months, I don't want her to hold it. LadyBug and I had lots of fun looking for flowers outside while LuLu napped. I cherish those one on one times with them!!
On another note.
I wanted to add a picture of new life in our yard! The first strawberry blossom. Signs of spring!!!!
Thought for the day:
1 Samuel 16:7 " ....God does not see the same way people see. People look at the outside of a person, but the Lord looks at the heart."
When we look at each other, what do we see?

We were all sick this weekend. I have a lot of reading to do to catch up with everybody. I am sooo sorry for everyone who has had to endure this horrid stomach virus!!!! YUK!! Hope you are all doing well.
Bobby stayed home yesterday to take care of me and the girls but he got sick too. So Granny and Popaw came and picked up Gracie. She was the only one well since she got the yuckies first. Me, Bob, and Alex lay in the bed all day. As bad as it was and as much as we all missed Grace it was nice to spend some 'time' with Alex. We haven't done that since before Grace. The hug that I got from Gracie when I picked her up this morning was priceless.... How I miss her when she isn't around!!

On another note, have you ever read the whole Bible? I started to about six months ago. I read the new testament first then the old. I have gotten as far as 1Samuel and I realize there is so much more to the story than what you get from reciting verses and taking what you will from those verses. It is waaay more complicated than I ever thought! My goal was to understand Jesus in a way that would direct me into the path to be more like him. Then I realized to understand him I had to understand his past. I can not say that I understand everything I've read so far. But God gives you what you need when you need it and He will do the same with understanding.
