New Beginnings

A new year and new beginnings. It is awesome to have the Lord daily in my life. Without Him I would be walking aimlessly. Which brings me to the topic of my post.

New Beginnings in my life. I am excited for the New Beginnings the Lord is bringing this year. I actually heard this word just before the birth of my 6th child, baby Kole. This was one year ago. I thought, "new beginnings" meant saying goodbye to the season of having babies and saying hello to a new life of not having to be pregnant again. Little did I know that my Lord has other plans. His plans are way bigger than what we can fathom. When we think in our own understanding that we need to go one direction, the Lord always seems to interfere with our plans and shows us His ways. As I have said before, Seek and you will find His ways. And His ways are the best ways.

New beginnings WAS a different message in my heart (my own fleshly heart). My own understanding of how things should go were blown clear out of the water. The Lord has brought me back to the place of beginnings. A rebirth of the things He spoke to me years ago. The things I was passionate about years ago, have been reborn. It is sort of like I am reborn again. I feel like I had been walking in the wilderness trying to find my way back. I would walk feeling like there would be no end to this journey. Then I would stop somewhere and have a drink and stay there because it was a place of comfort. There were times I was walking the right path, but there times that I was not on course.

This past year, 2006, has been a year of getting back to the beginning in three areas Family, homeschooling, and health. The Lord had put His desires in my heart regarding these three areas of life years ago. First in the area of family, the Lord has been showing me great treasures regarding the true blessing of children in our lives. I will share later about this revelation the Lord has shown me. He has also brought me back to what He has spoke in regards to homeschooling. I got off track by being fearful in what I was NOT teaching the children and I forsook the most important teaching of the day---His Word! I was so consumed in the schedule and the curriculums that I neglected teaching the Word to my children. Lastly, the Lord is showing me how eating more healthy foods benefits our bodies. Being aware of what we put into our bodies is very important to our health.

I am excited about the wonderful changes and the rebirth of His plans in my life. I am also sooo very joyful about my little sister receiving the Lord. I look forward to the awesome changes in her life. I REJOICE ALWAYS in MY GOD!!!

Blessings!!!!


Me and My beautiful Family---Tuttle Nation----

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
