Josh Wilson Before the Morning

I discovered this song in the summer and I fell in love with it.  I shared it with the ladies in the bible study I helped lead.  I am sharing it again now because my heart and mind are in deep prayer for a close friend.  I think the words to this song are perfect. The Joy that the Lord Jesus can bring to our lives is so great sometimes it is overwhelming for our human minds to even comprehend and understand.  Would you Dare? Would you dare to believe? That is the first step to the Joy the Lord Promises to us in his Word.  No matter how great our pain our JOY in the LORD is GREATER.

Peanut Butter Crazy!

WOW!!  I am probably the only person who would blog about Peanut Butter but It is just to GOOD not to share!!  My Friend turned me on to this Peanut Butter and I have been hooked ever since!  It is all Natural and it is like eating a Reese's out of a jar!! OK OK so you wanna know what it is called Right??  It is By Peanut Butter & Co and is Dark Chocolate Dreams.  It is Peanut Butter Blended with Rich Dark Chocolate.

This Peanut butter is Gluten Free and is Certified Vegan. No I am not a Vegan but for those of you who are that stop by my blog just a little factoid for you.  This company actually makes several peanut butters that I discovered as I was reading about the company.  I think the next one I am going to hunt down is their Cinnamon Raisin Swirl. Peanut Butter & Co is actually a New York Sandwich Shop.  You can click on their name and link to the website.

Thanks for stopping by and reading about my new Favorite item in my pantry!!  I am off to Walmart(the only place I can find it) to get some more because now my 9 year old has discovered it and between the 2 of us this jar is about gone!! 

I really feel bad for those you have an allergy to Peanuts because this is out of this world good!!  I think even Elvis would have approved!  You knew I had to sneak that in there!  LOL

Bible Study

I wanted to share about my Bible Study that I am doing.  I have been going to a  group at a local church in my area every Tuesday morning.  It is called TLC (Tuesday Ladies Connection)  It is an absolutely amazing group of Godly woman.  I would say on an average there is about 100 there every Tuesday.  We enjoy Worship and a devotion together then we break off into our small groups and this is what I want to share.

Our small group is doing a Beth Moore Study and it is all the Lords Handy work.  We were not suppose to be doing this study we were originally doing a different book but the program directors decided to save that book until the next semester because it was to long to fit in this half of our current semester.  So This is the book they chose for us.  Beth Moores' When Godly People Do unGodly Things.  Beth just has a true gift of opening ones eyes and looking at things in a whole new light or perspective you may not have seen before. It is like she speaks right to your heart.   I have loved every minute of this study.  It also has video sessions that go along with it that just glues it all together.

If you have not done this study may I suggest that one day when you feel lead to pick this study up and give it a try.  I think you will find that you will love it just as much as I do.

Well on a different note.  I was having a rough afternoon with the kids yesterday.  You know how sometimes just everything goes wrong??  Well for me sometimes we have days like that.  Just the small stuff starts to get on your nerves and I really have to pray and ask the Lord to give me the patience to deal.  I can't find something that I know is always in the same spot, I can't find my Keys, I always loose my phone, the Children are in an uproar, you have to get dinner ready because you have to run out the door for Awanas..... I could go on and on...anyways as we were driving to Church last night the Lord gave me this song on the radio and I just really related.  Take a listen....maybe you have heard it already but it just spoke and calmed me as I was driving.

Francesca Battistelli
I lost my keys 
In the great unknown 
And call me please 
'Cause I can't find my phone 

This is the stuff that drives me crazy. 
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately. 
In the middle of my little mess 
I forget how big I'm blessed 

This is the stuff that gets under my skin 
But I've got to trust You know exactly what You're doing 
Might not be what I might choose 
But this is the stuff you use 

45 in a 35 
Sirens and fines 
While I'm running behind 

This is the stuff that drives me crazy 
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately 
In the middle of my little mess 
I forget how big I'm blessed 

This is the stuff that gets under my skin 
But I've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing 
Might not be what I might choose but this is the stuff You use 

So break me of impatience 
Conquer my frustrations 
I've got a new appreciation 
It's not the end of the world 

This is the stuff that drives me crazy. 
This is the stuff 
Someone save me 
In the middle of little my mess 
I forget how big I'm blessed 

This is the stuff that gets under my skin 
And I've gotta trust you know exactly what You're doing 
Might not be what I would choose but this is the stuff You use 

This is the stuff You use

Always remember how much you are Blessed!!  That is my Goal for this week when I am caught up in my craziness to just stop and breath and remember how much I am Blessed.

Happy Valentines Day

Valentine poem

Valentine’s Day With Jesus

Jesus does not send perfume
To linger in the air
Instead He sends salvation, sweet
To show how much He cares.

He doesn’t bring me candy hearts
In boxes of delight
Instead He always lets me know
I’m precious in His sight.

He doesn’t send out pretty cards
Trimmed in shades of red
Instead He gave His life for me
His precious blood was shed.

He doesn’t hand out fancy gifts
Like we would send to mother
Instead He sends a message clear
To always love each other.

He doesn’t give me teddy bears
That whimper, "please be mine"
Instead He gave His heart to me
I wear it all the time.

He doesn’t give me roses, pink
For all the world to see
Instead He gave eternal life
That’s good enough for me!

Happy Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentines Day!!  This is the Day the Lord has made Let us REJOICE  and be GLAD in it!!  Have a Blessed day!

Another Year has gone by!!

It is so hard to believe another year has gone by and CJ is 2!!  He is a complete joy in our lives.  I am so THANKFUL  and GRATEFUL that the Lord chose us to be his parents.

We had just a little family party for him on the day of his actual birthday and we are planning a bigger celebration for later this month.

This year you decided your favorite food is Pizza!!  So Pizza it was!!

This cracks me up!!!

I don't know what you decided here??  I guess you were making more room for your Pizza by laying down!! LOL

One year ago you fell asleep in your birthday cake!!  Now sometime I wish you would just sleep to give me a break!!  Yes this was the year you gave up on naps!

Your Favorite thing to do is play "B" Ball with Daddy!

Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Mommy and Daddy can not wait to see how your life will unfold.  Our Prayer for you is that we will be able to train you up to be a loving servant of the Lord.  That your Faith will never cease and you will share the Love of Jesus Christ with others.  

The Lord knew you before he even decided to give you to us and knows everything about you.  You are a very special child CJ.  We Love you very much!!
