I wish I could remember the day, that moment that I changed. It was somewhere between the third or forth grade.
I am trying so hard to read this and believe this and I know in my heart It to be true. but on days like today I find myself just grasping to this
Just got some horrible news another face, another loved one, another name attached to cancer.
Finley age 8
A dear friends niece had emergency surgery on Thursday, doctors found a tumor in her stomach removed part of her bowl and appendix and found out today that she has Burkitt’s Lymphoma. Finley is being transported tomorrow to St Jude’s to determine the stage the cancer is in and will begin chemo on Monday. My heart is just breaking. Please pray for her doctors at St Jude’s. Praise God they are so close to such an amazing hospital. Please pray for her entire family Jase & Megan her brother Jack, Keith & Brooke, Harper & Cole. Pray for my best friend who I am not sure can handle another loss. Pray for God to heal her and for the best possible results on Monday.
Please pass on we need as many prayers as we can get.
Faith can be described many ways but to me faith is essentially believing that there is something bigger than I, Believing that just because I can not see it or taste it, It is real. It is true. It is necessary. Believing it is there and will be right,
I am putting EVERY single ounce of faith (right now) into knowing one clear and certain thing, we will call it x . If and only if it is to be His will it will happen. I believe it like I believe the sun will come up tomorrow morning, that sweet tea with lemon makes me smile. That when I prayed and prayed this was the answer I received “ask and it will be given to you; seek& you will find; knock & a door will open to you. for everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds: and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7: 7-8 Pretty powerful. Praying for Faith.

What a wonderful thursday morning at MOMS. I left feeling stronger and more confident than before. I am really trying to truly let it go and give it all to God. I am confident that by giving all the doubts and worries to him that I will indeed be a better wife, mother, friend, person.
There is so much weighing on my heart and I truly believe God led me to these women because he knew there was something that each of them would teach me.
One of todays questions was what we it take to make you feel free. Free from Financial Black hole! And 3 hrs after class it totally hit me. The biggest burden I have is taking care of everything! Home, groceries, cooking, cleaning. pool, garden, dogs, all sports, homework. I am (trying to) happy that hubs job is going so well. He provides for our family. I am just the extras. But my biggest confession is that I hate to pay bills. hate to deal with money. Hate to have to do EVERYTHING! so I made the executive decision that I am done with the bills. DONE! I have to LET IT GO!!! I know by releasing this burden I will Feel a sense of relief but, I too will worry if all is ok with it but again I have to let something go and this is my 1st step toward letting a little CONTROL go. Wish Me Luck!!

THE MOVIE. was a very emotional journey that Hubs and I were lucky enough to see last night. 2 weeks prior to the opening night! That was great. Do not think I have EVER seen a movie before everyone else. In fact, I am typically the last! HA.
Courageous should be seen by everyone. It made me think about everything I do and how I will do things different in the future. It made me question myself as a wife, as a mother, as a child of God. I think every father should take his son. Every family should see this. Every church should buy out a show time and share it with their congregation. I just can’t say enough about this movie. FANTAB!!!!!!!
It also makes me want to go to Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia.
Here is a synopsis directly from the brains behind the story:
Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.
Please! SHARE this with your friends, your family, the people you pass in the mall. ANYONE/EVERYONE!! Also, if you have seen it please share your thoughts.
