Toddlers

Galen. He is my 2 yr old. He is the sweetest little guy I know. He is the first to greet me when I get home from having been out running errands. He yells "mommy" really loud, runs up and hugs his arms around my legs. He is a tiny little guy with a big heart. He is laid back, but if those buttons get pushed (usually by older siblings) look out.

Toddler years can be difficult. The world calls them the terrible twos. But I believe they can be a blessing. I guess it depends on how you look at the two year old stage. These little ones are confused a bit, especially when they are not the babies anymore. They wonder what is going on in this big world. They can't seem to communicate clearly enough to get what they want, so0000...............what do they do----- Scream, yell, throw those tantrums.

Disciplining is a big tool for training. Consistency is the key. Eventually, they will get it. Our roles as parents is to have patience, don't lose our cool, speak with a calm soothing voice, and try to understand these little guys. Don't forget this is such a short season and it will be behind us before you know it. Lean on the strength of the LORD and He will show you glimpses of who this little person is. God, Himself, created Him for a purpose and we as parents need to find out this token. In hopes of it helping with our child training years. So remember, if you seek....... you will find.
Blessings

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
