Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommys out there. The ones with one child all the way to the ones with many, many children.

Yes, Michelle Duggar is expecting again. This will be their 18th child. Wow. She is a huge example of what a mother is suppose to be. Their children seem very joyful and happy. The love of Christ speaks loudly in their lives.

Does everyone need to be a mother of 18 to be a great mother? No, of course not. Having the love of Christ is the only way any mother can be successful. It is really sad to see some mothers struggling with their one or two children. Why is this? Probably because the lies of this society have consumed their minds as to why they need to complain and gripe about their blessings. Here are the lies they have believed:

1. Have one or two children because it is to expensive to have more.

2. Children ruin your body.

3. How can you enjoy life when you have many children.

4. I want to enjoy my latter years (vacation, cruises, etc...)

5. This world is evil, why bring more children into this world.

6 Selfish people have many children.

7. There is no time to raise that many children.

8. Having many children is an addiction.

9. To much work.

10. I can't afford to send them all to college.

How can some people say that having many children is selfish or it is an addiction. I believe it is the most unselfish thing you could ever do. Aborting babies for the sake of fulfilling your own lives is SELFISH. Being a godly mother is not selfish and let alone an addiction.

Most all women have a mothering spirit that the Lord Himself has created them to have. If they don't mother children they will mother a pet or something else. The desire to have a baby comes only from the Lord, the creator of life. Women have a desire to be mothers. There is no other explanantion.

Being a mother is such a wonderful gift from the Lord. What an awesome privilege we have to bear children and raise a quiver full of children for His glory and purpose.

Having many children is having a vision for the future of mankind--Having a vision for the next generation. Yes, this is an evil world so why not fill it with Righteous people who love the Lord and will make this world a better place.

Happy Mother's Day

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 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
