Danny Gokey

Danny's Voice (Danny Gokey from American Idol) is about the foundation he and his wife started. It is his personal story and is very moving. If you can, take the time to read his story and watch the video.

Fast Furious Friday

TGIF! Need I say more?
Bobby is working on our house today. His wonderful boss is doing the wiring. They are doing the telephone wires today. I really had no idea how many decisions would need to be made so quickly. Thankfully, I have received some very good tips. So far we have built out of pocket, oh and thank you - Home Depot Card. But the time has come to BORROW. Yuk, I hate to say that word, it sounded very loud just typing it. Anyway, I am very excited that we will be moving forward in a quick way very soon. (the plans took five years to 'perfect' and just getting it dried in has taken a year or more!)

Bobby is taking me out tonight! Fast and Furious. Anyone who knows me knows that this tops.... dinner, although we will do that too. Then if funds allow we will attend the 'races' Saturday night. For those who know me... you know this is not so exciting. But my MIL has the kids for the weekend and I am going to walk hand in hand with my love..... through mud, dust, smells, loud engines roaring, swearing in the background, and lots and lots of did I mention- DIRT? Oh well, he loves me, and I love him.

Stellan is doing much better! He still needs our prayers.


Thought for the Weekend:

Encourage and be encouraged. Jabez asked God and God did what Jabez asked.
(1 Chronicles 4:9-10)
God knows us each by name, His plan is written. Our names are written on his hand.
(Isaiah 49:16)
Because Jesus took the fall, we are able to rise. God loves us so much that we are able to stand tall, look the enemy in the eye and say 'you are defeated'! Who is your enemy? Are you taking charge of your victory? Your enemy could be anything; health, violence, anger, jealousy, grief, shame, lust.... You have victory in Jesus!

This is why I love him Thursday

This is why I love him Thursday.
My dear sweet Fella, Let me count the ways:

He got aggravated that the phone rang during dinner.

He let LadyBug help him paint.

He reminds me that bad weather isn't exciting it is bad. (I do still get a little excited, anyway)

He forgives me.

Wordful Wednesdays

Hosted by Seven Clown Circus , its Wordful Wednesday. Here are my beauties.

LuLu has found great delight in putting clothes on by herself. She found this beanie and decided to wear it, regardless of the fact that it is a comfy 70 degrees in here.

LadyBug was playing on the computer (her new favorite webite is Pixie Hollow) and our mouse stopped working so she understandably was very frustrated.

A prayer vigil is being held for him now. If you feel led, please visit by clicking here, and pray with us for this little boy and his family.

Thought for the Day:

God knows each of us by name. Each with a purpose in his will.

matters of the heart part 2

My heart does beat again.
The weight much lighter.
Carried to the Cross.
A smile from my love.
A smile escapes my lips.
The heart so easily repaired.
The soul so quickly sings.

matters of the heart

I have heard the faint sound of my heart breaking.
Every silent tear burns a trail down my face.
Stinging like poison.
My mind whirls.
Joy escapes me.
Lonely is the only feeling left.
No peace surrounding me.
Just the sound of the breaking.
I can't breathe.
I can't sleep.
The weight is more than I can bare.
