Pray for your children 7x7

I got this off of Angie Smith's blog Bring the Rain. It is such a great idea, and I wanted to pass it along! Each day pray these prayers over your children, and the different times specified. Write them on notecards and do it for 7 days! 1. When they wake up: "Let the morning bring (child's name) word of your unfailing love, for she has put her trust in You. Show (her/him) the way (she/he) should go, for to you (he/she) lifts up her soul." (Adapted from Psalm 143:8) 2. When they are getting dressed: "Therefore, as God's chosen child, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Lord, help (him/her) bear with others and forgive whatever grievances (he/she) has against others. Help (him/her) forgive as the Lord forgave (him/her). And over all these virtues, help (him/her) put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." (Adapted from Colossians 3:12-14) 3. While they are eating: "Tea

Week one is DONE. It went really well...and I'm not focusing on speed, just taking it nice and easy! The podcast I downloaded to go along with this program is brilliant and makes it SO much easier! Any of you that have run before or NEVER run at all...this program is GREAT and I guarantee it!

Beth Moore..woohoo!

Okay, I am SUPER excited about this! I follow Beth Moore's blog which is updated several times a week by either HER or her two daughters! It is so cool, because it's totally personal and casual. You feel like you really know her and the other "siestas" (check out the blog to find out what that is!) So, her new book is being released on Tuesday! Blog members who wish to do so are going to read along together and do discussion questions that she will assign weekly! It is awesome to think about doing this with a group of women spread all over the U.S. and beyond, and with Beth Moore leading it! I pre-ordered my book and I am excited about starting! The blog is open to all and I highly recommend you checking it out! There is still time to get in on this as well! The book is called: So Long've been a bad friend to us She says it's great for the beliver and non-believer as well! So invite a friend to do it along with you! The link to her blog: http:


So, I just finished The Deathly Hallows. Wow...I REALLY liked it. It took me a bit longer to get into it, obviously the tone of it all had changed so much from the previous books. But once I did, I couldn't put it down and I must say that it is one of my favorites now! I feel like I really just earned "nerd" status...but I'm okay with that. I can't believe I have to wait until November to see the movie. This is the first HP book that I have read BEFORE seeing the we shall see! My hubby wants to watch the movie first (he hasn't read the books YET) and so I can't share with him ANYTHING about's killing me! Soooo I have to find a book/books/lots of books to read in the mean time. I have Persuasion by Jane Austen in the bathroom (hehe) but I'm looking for suggestions. I will list my favorites so you can get a feel for what I like and then post what you think I could keep busy with! Thank ya! Favorites: Emma by Jane Austen Pride and P

Wow is it WINDY!! Here are some fun quotes about wind...just for fun!

A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache. Catherine the Great Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it. Winston Churchill Being married means I can break wind and eat ice cream in bed. Brad Pitt To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor. Oliver Wendell Holmes

Just change the name to Krystle and BAM...this is my "today"....phooey!

Comforting Arms

My poor lil goob has a double ear infection. :( It's so sad to see him mope and whine around the house, hardly napping or eating. I feel so helpless, my child is in pain and they only thing I can offer him is snuggle time, comfort. But that indeed is what it seems he needs the most. Isn't it like that with us? In the midst of pain and hurt, we are miserably wandering around seeking something to ease it. And there HE is, open arms. Offering one thing, offering His peace and assurance, a little "snuggle time" if you will. And while we may want things to be "fixed" instantly, or some tangible "antibiotic" reality what satisfies us the most is when we are comforted by Him. When we fall in His lap, lay our heads down and rest in His arms. I love that I would have never seen this parallel had I not become a mother. I'm so thankful for each moment that my son, his very existence, beckons me to look back up to the Lord who gave him to me. Thank y

This is my bestest friend.

Since about 7th grade....we've been through all of the thin stuff together. LOTS and LOTS of thin....and in the past 5 or so months we've been through the THICK of it. Really thick stuff. I'm so proud of her, her faith and her strength. She is an amazing person and I'm so honored to be a part of her life.

Hello Handsome

He's moving...I can feel it.

God has laid some things on my heart, and I feel like they are coming to a head. I can feel Him moving in me....something is stirring. It's exciting and scary....I have made some contacts and hope to not have to wait too long to hear from them. You know when you feel like God has called you to something, you cannot WAIT to get started?!?! I know I have to be patient, and as always wait on His timing. But I want to jump in!

Coffee, Blessings and Faith

I'm just sitting here, sipping on my carmel blondie from Black Rock, thinking about how blessed I am. It's overwhelming at times to realize what God has done for me and what He's given me. I'm listening on the monitor as my son is talking himself to sleep, watching my cat roll around on the ground like a weirdo and knowing the love of my life will be home in about 2 hours. I feel at times I will explode with thankfulness and gratitude. These past few weeks (4 to be exact) have been extremely difficult. An emotional roller coaster of fear, anger, overwhelming sadness and grief. But never doubt....I have not once doubted God. Why? Because I believe that He is always faithful and that His timing is perfect. It's not easy to believe this, it's not easy to follow through on what you are taught and what you know. But there is no other choice. You can still be angry at Him for the things He allows you to go through. I have told Him time and time again that I was mad, u

So, I guess we'll try this out

Well, this is my first attempt at "blogging" although I'm not sure it's for me or not. I am a private person, and most of the stuff I've seen on blogs have been things that, well....people should have kept private! That being said, I've also been encouraged and informed by other blogs. So, maybe I can be one of the latter! If anyone actually reads these..........Oh and mostly I will be bragging about my son, and posting pictures. :)
