What a Weekend....

What a weekend we had! I arrived at my mother's house Thursday evening with my girls. We worked on wedding flowers until late in the evening. Friday morning we all gathered and had mannies and peddies done. ( Don't know why I did it, because my hands look terrible after I cooked and decorated Friday afternoon.) Can you believe that was the first time I had a pedicure done!!! Yes, I am odd, I don't ever take time for myself but I was glad I did..... It was so nice.

My daughters bday was Friday, so we had a birthday/ pre wedding party Friday night.

The Party spread!

The Birthday girl with one of her many gifts.

The Wedding Saturday morning was very nice. My Sister was a beautiful bride.

The Happy Couple!

The weekend came to an end way too fast! One down , two more to go.....

It seems unreal that in a few weeks my sister in law will be getting married, then in May our niece will be walking down the aisle. In between a family reunion...... Wonder what the summer will bring our way!

I hate being sick!!!!!!

UGGGGGGH! I hate being sick. I woke up Monday morning all stuffed up and feeling yuck! We had a cold front move in and it got me...... I can't be sick. I don't have the time to be sick.

But it never fails when ever I am busy, something in body goes wrong!

I am so excited my sister is getting remarried Saturday!!!!! Her first husband passed away over 18 yrs ago. (She was a teen bride.) Now, she is getting married to a wonderful man on Saturday. I have a long list of Sisterly duties to preform between now and Saturday, but what joy and fun it will be!

I am going to need lots to pray! lol.... Her wedding is at 11am , and we are all going to be at my mother's house getting ready, plus I have to have the food cooked before the wedding.....So I think I will be up early, early, early to get is done.

Well, the family is calling for breakfest..... so until next time,

Valentine Memories

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, lets take a walk down memory lane.
I meet the love of my life at the ripe old age of 12. I did not start dating him until I was 15. We were just friends. YOU DON'T NEED TO BE DATING AT 12 ANYWAY!!!!!
He is the best thing that has happened to me. What can be the greatest thing, but to marry the man who is your best friend. I love my hubby. He makes all his girls feel special. Instead of exchanging gifts this yr., he took all of us ladies to eat at a fancy Mexican restaurant. He's the best!

I was reading my Sunday school lesson for Sunday when it hit me, why not talk about Love, agape love. The love that Christ has for his people. Agape love means unconditional love, loving us when we are unlovable, and loving others when they are unlovable. Wow! Christ loved us even when we were sinners. Do we put regulations on our loving others? Do we say I will love you only if you do this or that? Wonder what we would do if Christ said that to us?

We could speak every language to known to man, know ever thing there is to know, have all the money in the world, but if we do not have love..... than it is for nothing!

I love reading 1 Cor. 13 in the Bible. Every time I read it, it gives me a new understanding of the kind of love we should show others around us.

What does Charity (love)do:

  • kind
  • sufferth long
  • envith not
  • is not puffed up ( prideful)

Our example!!!

Take some time to show God's love to others.....

Happy Valentine's Day!

Dreams that won't let Go

I recently had the opportunity to read DREAMS THAT WON'T LET GO by Stacy Adams.

Indigo Burns is excited about her wedding. She has the man of her dreams, and everything is fine. That i s until her long lost brother shows back up. Now Indigo is faced with facts that she does not know if she can or really wants to deal with.

Every family has their problems. The Burns family is no different.

Stacy Adams wrote about a family that has had problems and secrets. In the story she brings out that the only way to heal over past hurts is to get it all "out in the open". I love the way she has wrote this novel. I am sure this story will speak to others in situations like the Burns family has experienced.

Dreams the won't let Go speaks about forgiveness and healing.
Looking for an uplifting book to read: consider this one.

Until next time

Family update!

Well, it has been awhile since I have just updated everyone on your family. I guess now is as great of time as any to do so. December was a very busy month for us. We had a great Christmas play at church. I was very proud of our girls. I thought that after Christmas was over, things would calm down, but no that does not seem to happen with us! January was worse than ever. We are behind a little in school, but I have just set myself to keep going and when we finish these books, we will start the new.

Change is in the air for our family. We are praying for answers to our prays. The Lord has shown us some things. So needless to say, the next few months changes will happen in our family. I am excited to see what will happen! I am also scared to death! I do know that the Lord is in control even though we do not see him at work or feel Him at work. I stand on this daily. I don't know what the Lord has planned for us, but this I do know: He has it all in his hands.

I have started to sell hair pins. Elegant hair pins! take a look:My sales have been better than I have expected. I am excited about it all.
Well thanks for reading my blog.
until next time

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
