Thanking the Lord!!!!

It has been a awhile since I've shared my heart.  I have been quite busy being a wife and mommy of seven beautiful children.  They are so much fun.  I thank the Lord each and every day for the blessings in my life.  

There are days that I awake and don't feel like tackling the day.  My day starts so early in the morning.  It starts right in my mind.  I can go ahead and let it bring me down or take it to the Lord by thanking him, out loud.  It is so important that we thank Him out loud so we can hear our own voice.  It is a confession we are making and then we realize---Hey, life is not so bad after all.  My life is actually soooo wonderful!!! It couldn't be better.  

What do I thank the Lord for?  

1.  My life and my Hope in Him.  I thank Him for His Son Jesus and how he shed His blood for me so I can live a life of fullness and redemption.  Galatians 3:13 says we were Redeemed from the curse of the law so that the blessings of Abraham could come upon us and we have the promised Holy Spirit living in us!!  Hallelujah!!  Now this is something to be thankful for.

2.  My husband.  He is such a great man of God.  Such a wonderful husband who loves me so much and gives his all for our family.  I am so thankful for such a wonderful love in my life. 

3.  My children.  I am so thankful that I am able to have children of my own.  I am thankful for being able to bear children and raise such beautiful and wonderful children.  

4.  For our families health, home, provision, etc...  This is so important.  We are all healthy and we are covered and healed by the stripes of the Lord.  I am so thankful I have a home to live in, food in my fridge, a washer and dryer, dishwasher, computer, t.v., books to read, vehicles to drive, and the ability to buy clothing, gas, food, etc.. when we need it. 

5.  I am able to teach my own children and train them in the way they should go.  I can impart the truths of the Lord in their lives and they don't have junk filling their minds.  Wow, now that is something to be thankful for. 

6.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ--now this is Good News. We can live a life of love, joy, peace, hope, healing, prosperity, to name a few.  Life in the Kingdom is Good Good News. 

So whenever you might feel down.  Just start thanking God for these things we might take for granted.  This turns my heart immediately.

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
