Thankful

I am sitting here watching my kids goof off while they are supposed to be doing some copywork. I’m also chatting with my oldest daughter via text messages and e-mail. She is training in the desert right now. She’s living in a tent. Levi and Erin think that is so cool. They even built their own tent.

Lord,
Thank you for my children. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to stay home with them and teach them. Thank you for all the ways that I can communicate with my children who are not here. Watch over my children and keep them safe. In Jesus’ name, Amen

A few simple words

March 9, 2010 at 6:53 pm (God, Life, pregnancy loss) (, , , , )

“Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.”  1 Thessalonians 5:11

“You are a blessing.”  Those simple words amazed me a few years ago when my doctor said them to me.  After losing Franklin, I was going through intense grief and confusion.  I didn’t see anything positive in what had happened.  Until those simple, yet powerful words.  He never would tell me how I had blessed him, but just knowing that something positive could come out of something so horrific caused me to look at things differently.  I made the decision then to try and be a blessing to others who would go through tragedies such as mine.  It was my stepping stone to healing and hope.

If you have someone in your life who has blessed you in any way, please don’t hesitate to tell them.  It might just change their lives!

Rejoicing in the Here and Now(pregnancy mentioned)

October 7, 2009 at 12:03 pm (Children, Family, God, pregnancy) (, , , , , )

I just got this happy thought in my head, “I can’t wait to feel this baby move.”  And then right behind it, “no, no, don’t get your hopes up”.  But as I sit here, I refuse to back down and give up any of this joy I am feeling!  I know that I belong to that stinky non-naive’ club where everything that can go wrong runs through our head!  I don’t care!  If something negative happens, well, I’ll just deal with it then!  This happiness and joy is just bubbling up inside of me.  This can’t be bad!  My mind says, “but what about the statistics against you right now?”  I say it’s a MIRACLE that I’m even pregnant at my age, so statistics be damned!  I will rejoice in this gift that God has given me yet again!

Wordfull Wednesday ~ Memorial Day 2009

June 10, 2009 at 12:31 pm (Children, Family, God, Life, photography) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

1At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

6But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

7Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

~~Mathew 18:1-7
