Busy week

Well, had a very eventful week or two. Celebrated Hubby's B-day (thank you everyone for blessing him!) Celebrated our Anniversary, was blessed with roses and and an amazing massage at a beautiful salon and then had quality one on one time with Tom. I felt so pampered and so loved by Tom and the Lord! Now finishing up the last minute packing for Tom. Yep he leaves tomorrow for Hawaii for 14 days. So we've been trying to prepare Samuel for this, telling him Daddy is going on an airplane to Hawaii but that we can talk to him on the phone and see him on the computer(yay for skype). Samuel says "da da go hi-he" it is so cute. So I'm gonna try and keep busy. Going to my bro's in Atlanta for 4 days then when I come back I'm going to work on some projects. Tom got me some paint so I'm going to see how much energy I have but we have paint for our bathroom, our bedroom and nursery. Also going to paint a dresser for baby # 3. Glad I'm nesting it will make these 2 weeks easier I hope. I am sad for Tom to be away for so long but I am excited to see what the Lord will do in both of our hearts. I really feel like the Lord is drawing us closer to Him and pushing us into Him again. It's funny cause before we were married we had a long distance relationship for 8 months and it made us seek the Lord in a new way. So this should be a good 2 weeks of seeking the Lord again. Anyways, there's my heart for ya, looking forward to spending some extra time with the Lord while Tom's gone but also looking forward to looking at Hawaii pics when he gets back. Pray for Tom and our director as they go and please pray for grace to be on the kids and I. Blessings on you all!

Happy Salvation day to me!

Happy Valentine's day to you all! I'm blessing the Lord for this day, I was saved on this day years ago. I remember it very clearly searching and searching for love and was not finding it anywhere. Was very hurt and very unhappy. I remember thinking all my Christian friends seem to be so happy, guess I better go to church like they do. So I found a church started going to it and then became interested in the word. I had no one to ask questions about the word so I set up meetings with one of our pastors at our church and we would meet and I would bring my list of questions about the bible to him. My heart was beginning to come alive during these meetings and I would go home sit on my bed, read and search for more truth. Then on Valentine's day I went in for another meeting with my pastor and he said it sounds like your ready do you want to ask Jesus into your heart? I said Yes! We prayed together and then went and announced it to everyone that happened to be in the church building that day. A big thanks to you Pastor Chris for taking the time and answering all my questions and for being patient with me and for leading me to the Lord!

Today I am thanking the Lord for His kindness towards me! What a journey it has been. From that day I started seeking the Lord more and more. Learned I could talk to Him whenever I wanted to. My dream was to be able to pray all day, I didn't think it ever would be possible. As all you know it is! The Lord is so good to me, he saved me and set me free, he's healed me in so many ways and even on my bad days He still loves me. Another dream of mine was to be married with kids. It is all I ever wanted. I was praying for "the one" and I would always say I wanted 10 children. Looks like God is answering prayer! I definitely met the love of my life, we are going on 3 yrs married this Wednesday, so exciting. Looks like God is giving me those children I asked for and He's doing it fast. So all this to say....He is good and I am blessed. Be blessed today ya'll

Thankful heart!

Hello there, for some reason I haven't had much to write about lately so here goes. Today I am very thankful! I'm thankful for the community we live in and the friends we have even if we don't talk all the time our hearts are knit in prayer which I love! I'm thankful that the Lord is good all the time. I am thankful for the husband and children He has given me. Most of all I am thankful He saved my soul! I love the Lord my God!
