When the weather starts to cool off, I feel the urge to fluff my nest! I think we should call this "Nesting Season" and in my home, I think that is just what we will do! So, I'm brainstorming ways make my nest cozy. First I have to get some unwanted guest to move out! SPIDERS!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm not totally against em, I just don't care to have spiders running around in my house. Any tips, that don't require calling the sprayer man to come visit, would be wonderful! Remember, i have animals and children-nothing toxic!
Like I said before so much has happened since I was on here last. I was pregos when i last blogged. That Blessing is now in the arms of my God and Savior, as I learned about the loss through miscarriage. A few mths following that, I become pregos again and was able to bring that blessing into the world. (which makes 5 blessing here on earth) Before my bundle arrived we learned of the sickness that my step-father was unknowingly fighting. Doctors told my mother that he had pancreatic cancer. While we look back and can see that he was probably fighting this for some time, it was new knowledge of what was making him sick. Within about one mths time of finding this cancer, Gary went to his home in Heaven. We all knew of Gary's love for The Lord, and it comes as a great comfort. His company is missed, but the impact he had on those he loved was strong and deep.
A short time after the loss of a dear grandfather, our family was preparing for the birth of our new baby! I think my children asked most everyday, if that would be "the day"! may 10 we received a new baby boy! (our first time not knowing what sex the baby would be) Like all days that babies are born, we will not forget that day! The Lord has Blessed us beyond what we deserve!
Now we have taken up a couple of goats (didn't see that one coming!)which we just love and I think will be a wonderful addition to our little family "farm" adventure. Garden and flowers didn't do as well as the weeds this year, but the baby is growing strong and big, so that gets me off the hook there!-)
Our family is always growing and my prayer is that much of that growth is in Wisdom- in all areas. So here's to "back to blogging!" and may I gain back some readers (who will leave comments!-) Through this blog, I desire-if it be God's will, to meet/share with others. To gain encouragement and to be encouraging~
wow! it's been too long and so much has happened! To the few "followers" i had, (and I'm sure have lost!) i must say sorry-i blame it on facebook! and the fact that I haven't had much to say (or at least not what I felt like was worth putting on a blog) I've been doing a lot of blog stalking again these days and i think I'm ready to get back on the blogging wagon! (((please note- i usually type with one hand due to the fact that i'm usually holding a baby with the other hand-so please forgive the lack of making my "i" and some other letters caps- i try, but one handed typing can get tricky sometimes and the caps/shift button gets over looked--thanks for understanding! And if you don't, try doing your whole days typing with one hand and you will soon get it~
We are told from God to have a meek spirit, but what does that really mean? Like the word "submission" I believe that we have a misunderstanding of what this word really means, so here is a simple study for us to ponder on,,,,,1. Humble patient or submissive, as under provocation from others. 2. Overly patient or submissive; tame. 3. Gentle; kind, meek, soft, mild, modest, long-suffering, enduring, modest, tolerant, persevering, understanding, unhurried. Synonyms would be: humbleness, resignation, surrender, forbearance, yielding, docility;unassuming, understanding In today's world, ladies are encourage to be verbal, flashy and unyielding. We grow up to be wives and mothers and wonder why there is so much anger and lack of peace in our lives. I truly believe that searching the Bible and finding out what God expects of us is the only way to find real happiness in our lives,,,,despite the world around us! I know that I can see many examples in the words above that remind me of areas I need to pay extra attention to. How patient and soft did I speak to my children? How submissive and yielding am I to my Husbands needs? Did I preserver in my chores? Let us remind one another to pray to God for help in these areas! ~xo~
