Here is what's on my mind

Wow, it has been awhile since I have written anything in this blog. Just a quick update before I go on with this post. Gave birth to a beautiful, gorgeous little baby boy named Ephraim Tobias. God is so good. The birth went very well and I was blessed through the whole experience.

So here I am, the baby is now 3 months old and we just celebrated Christmas. Time seems to just fly these days. I am so excited about what the Lord is going to do this year. My prayer is for my family and I to grow so ever more with the Lord. To know Him like we have never known Him before. To walk in His ways and to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE as He loves us.

Lately I have felt like I have been on edge. I have felt like "life's" pressures our knocking on my door. Pressures of schooling, cleaning, and you name it. But why? I ask. Why do I let these things bother me oh so much. There is no reason for it. Why do I get so frustrated when my kids are not understanding what I am teaching or why they can't pick up after themselves which then makes for a messy home. Does this even matter in the Light of Eternity. NO!! of course not!! The enemy wants to deceive us and speak those little lies in our minds that if we don't perform or produce a certain product well then what are we worth then. You see he wants us to get so caught up in these little details of life so we are so frustrated that we won't be able to hear the voice of the LORD. The devil is not up to any new tricks. He is sneaky and this is why the Lord has said to be vigilant and watchful. Evermore we as Children of God need to be watchful because He is wanting us to not do the will of our Father.

We need to dwell in the Secret Place where our Lord is. We need to dwell in the goodness of the Father. Focus our energy in dwelling in His Love. Loving our families and people around us. Walking in the Spirit is walking in the Fruit of the Spirit--Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control. Yikes, I have not walked in this. Thanks to the Lord because He is ever so merciful and gives so much grace that I know I can change when I ask Him to change me. Only by His power am I changed.

Amen

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
