Proud Mama!!

I am posting pictures of last year's Civil Air Patrol, Color Guard Competition. They placed 2nd in the State!! Justin has begun his 2nd year on the Color Guard Team. This year we are hoping they will place 1st. I am so proud of my son. It is so nice to see him serving with such a great organization.

Justin is in the 10th grade this year (home schooled). We have begun to discuss his options in pursuing the Military (Marines). Justin feels very confident that this is the direction God has for him. Right now, he is not sure what path he will take: college first and then serve; joining the U.S. Naval Academy; or some other direction. God only knows. Donnie and I would like him to pursue a college degree, so when he does begin his military career, he will enter as an Officer. He can obtain a degree through a University or go the route of the Naval Academy. Part of me wants him to pick the latter, but ultimately he will do what God is leading him to do. I know he will succeed in anything he does.

As a homeschooling mom of a high schooler, I feel I'm in a time crunch making sure he gets all his credits in and excels in his test scores (SAT/ACT). It is exciting to walk this path with my first born and I want so much for him to reach for the stars and be the best of the best!! :) What mother doesn't want this for each one of her children?

Blessings,

Chris

Miguel, my eldest, has also talked about joining the army and we would be so proud of him if this is the route he chose.

I brought Timmy to come look at the pics of your kiddos and when he saw the sidebar pic of Kole he actually thought it was a picture of our Zachary. LOL

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
