Joys of Life

Having a large family is such a great JOY. Just as is said in Psalm 127:5 "Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them...". I experience much life and joys everyday. Everyday is a new adventure. Daily I long see what new things my children have learned. How they are growing and how they are maturing. Yes, there are those days when we as mothers feel bogged down with so many responsibilities. But we can't overlook the bigger picture. The bigger picture of enjoying each and everyday of life to its fullest.

Experiencing life to its fullest, is dwelling on the positive... The baby kisses, the toothless smiles, their desires to talk to mom and dad into the late evening. Even thinking about how my children will grow into godly adults and one day have their own families; I look forward to the days my children have their families. I forsee my latter days continuing to be filled with life. I long to see the days when my children have children and my many grandbabies come over to grandma's house. No, my house will not be empty, it will be beaming with life.

Life more abudantly. This is what Christ wants us to experience. My life on earth is like experiencing the joys of Heaven. The fullness of life. To know life to it's fullest is the goal of every soul. This can only be met by the One true God. He is the creator of life and He wants us to experience this to its fullest.

Life. Life is so precious. Life is so beautiful. From the flowers in a prarie to each person on earth. Life is wonderful. Life is full of excitement. Life continually reigns in those who serve the Lord Jesus. Choose life not death. Focus on the positive things in life. On the One who makes all things beautiful!

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

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was rushing...kids to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
