Sad Face Wal-Mart

For those of you who have asked here is the link about Wal-Mart's new partnership with the Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. I feel very strongly about this, that we should not give our God-given finances to support this cause. That may seem extremist to some however this Chamber of Commerce is part of the movement to have the marriage ammendment say that marriage is NOT just between a man and a woman. As Christian women, wives, and mothers we should let Wal-Mart know that although we love their prices and products we will not support them while they are partners with this group. Join me in our boycott!

Picnic Fun!

What a day! God certainly blessed us. The bank gave us a refund of $58. Thank you!
Yesterday was our church picnic. (pictures will follow) I had a small hand in planning it but the round of applause goes to Jodi. We had chicken and corn on the cobb and lots of tasty dishes. Then came the fun. Nathan and I won the three-legged-race. Our prize was $20 gift card to Sugar Creek restaraunt and cupons for Vargo's mini golf. Now we can go on a date. I can't wait until Friday. Nathan and I are going on a triple date to celebrate my birthday with Sarah, Mike, Tabitha, and Scott. We're going to dinner and to Build A Bear workshop afterwards. I'm looking forward to having fun with my girlfriends and their guys. Besides Nathan and I didn't do mushy stuff like this before we got married. Hopefully this week will fly by.

What A Way to Wake Up!

This morning I woke up to my dear husband telling me that JM our 20 month old son had taken his diaper off in his bed and then pooped everywhere. I cried. Literally rolled over and cried. We got the mess cleaned up. And boy was it a mess. I was crying, JM was crying. It was not pretty. Later I found a couple verses that I really needed this morning.
Psalm 29:11~ "The Lord gives his people strength, The Lord blesses them with peace."
Psalm 43:5~ "Why am I so discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again- my Savior and my God!"
Then I checked outMama Lily on her blog this morning and she made me cry as I thanked God for my little finger prints and my sometimes big messes, even if the are poopy occasionally. Thank you God!! My sisters are the best.

The First of Many

Welcome to my blog. My sisters and sister-in-law think I should join the club and have a blog. Well here I am posting my thoughts and ideas on the web for all to see. I'm sure I will need much help from Nathan my husband to help me along the way.
