What is Love?

Good Morning! Yes, I actually painted my nails and it's not even 8:00am...Amazing! I am so proud of myself for doing that! It may seem small, but for me to do something for MYSELF is Huge!!! Today I'm going to try and see if I can hook up a video/picture to my blog...Wish me well!

Can I do it?

Well, what can I say in 5 minutes? Wow, this is the fastest I've ever typed. I only have a short amount of time so here it goes...I haven't been on here for a while due to my oldest daughter piercing a handlebar into her stomach and having to go to the ER. Two of my daughters have started soccer and 1 is playing Tennis. Hence, my excuse....Blah! How many of you bloggers out there have the same things and more going on but somehow you can fit in your "blogging". I am tired of having excuses. I am commited to blogging because this is something I started and really want to do! Usually I can talk a person's head off, so hopefully I can do just as well at this! I am trying to get the details worked out on my page so it will allow you to go to other sites from my page. There is alot I want to share regarding LOVE and how to be loved. It's pretty simple- all you have do is read I Corinthians chapter 13. It's easy to read but understanding it, is a whole different level...All I know is it's something I want to experience every day! What about you? How have you been loved today? How have you loved yourself today? I wanted to paint my nails and I promised myself I would, but here I am ready for bed and still no fancy nails. Isn't it easy to put ourselves off as Mothers. Here it goes, I am going to love myself tomorrow and paint them first thing! (giggles)

St. Patricks Day w/ an Interesting Twist ~

Yesterday started out in the normal way: waking girls up, getting breakfast ready, preparing lessons, feeding the dog, having devotions,etc....Everything was going pretty smooth UNTIL my 10 year old tells me that she heard a commercial on the radio about "sex" and wondered what that meant? Once in a while something will come up about it, and we've tried to steer clear of it- but basically said something like"It's something God designed for marriage b/t a husband and wife." So then she says, "Is it uncomfortable" and I'm like what do you mean? And she didn't know what she meant- I could just see her trying to figure "it" out but didn't know what "it" was....I just basically told her, the physical part of "it" that a man has sperm and the women has ovaries and when they come together, that's how a baby is born and why God designed it that way.... So, her next question was, "Do you have to throw up together or something like that?" I just about DIED laughing- it was too cute!
Besides that, it was an eventful day b/c my girls were excited about St. Patricks Day! We all headed up to Walmart and bought a bunch of Irish goods....Now when I was a kid, I could've cared less about it- but I'm not Irish. My husband IS Irish, so they take it very seriously that since THEIR Irish, we have to celebrate! I didn't have a whole lot of time- so I made corned beef and cabbage sandwiches for dinner & lime green sherbet w/ 7-Up floats topped w/ whipped cream and a cherry for dessert. They loved it except for my little one. She gave her float to me, so my conclusion is she must not have as much "Irish" in her.

My Recent Trip to the Mountains of TN-Discovering Life!

What an awesome name of a church- Discover Life! I had the privilege of speaking at a ladies conference in Kingsport,TN. A friend of mine from Bible College invited me and I can't put into words what a BLESSING it was! I was able to share "In Order for Jesus to truly be #1 in our lives, The Lies Have Got to Go!" Us women struggle w/ believing lies every day. We need to be more mindful of what comes into our head & not so quick to allow it to stay and believe it as truth! If something is contrary to the Word of God- it's a lie...What lies are you believing today? Is it really doing you any good to believe those things? What God says about you is The only truth you need! He says he planned on you being here on the planet- he said he knows the number of hairs on your head- he said he came to give you life and life more abundantly-better than you could ever imagine! Are you settling or are you believing the TRUTH? I don't care what you struggle w/-anything can be overcome with God's power!!! I struggled my whole life w/ insecurities and fears that caused me to be bound, even as a is finally donning on me-to believe the truth!!! It will show up in your behavior and the way you "live" your life! I encourage you to do something you've never done before.....Have a little faith- it will get you a LONG way! It is the key that will unlock that door! :-) HAVE A FAITH-FILLED DAY! Be free in Jesus Name!
