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

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
