Random Tandom

Random 1

We went to the Mardi Gras Kids Parade at PCB. I could not find Karas' toboggan so this is what happened. People were taking pictures but she did not care!


Random 2


Do Not Fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you. Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10





I am sure that I have heard and read this verse before but I read it lately and it really stood out to me. I love it and it is currently my favorite verse. That's it.





Random 3


The other day I was subbing in a Kindergarten classroom and I told a student to take a paper home and have mommy read over it with him. He told me that he did not have a mommy. Divorce is so prevalent these days, so I just assumed that he lived with Daddy. WRONG! I asked him where mommy was and he replied "Heaven". I said, "you know what? My daddy lives there to. They probably know each other, you think?" He said with a little smile, "yeah, probably" and laid down on his nap mat. I fought back tears with all that I had and even shed some because the room was dark for naptime. He didn't though. He was fine with it. He handled the conversation much better than I did. I realized at that moment that I felt 5 years old. I felt like me and this precious little boy had a deep connection. I was 25 when my dad died but I literally felt 5 years old. I don't think it is easy at any age but his "Childlike" faith has stayed in my mind. Jesus tells us to have childlike faith and this little boy was a testimony to that for me. He knew that mommy was in heaven with Jesus. He trusted that, He believed that, and He took his nap.

Random 4

Things the Kingster is saying these days:
"Mommy, I need a pop tart please"....."Mommy, You Understand Me?"

"Mommy, You are a big girl, do not be Ugy (ugly) to Daddy!"

His Prayers (precious) He ends them with "Good Night Jesus"

Before bed "Mommy, I need to brush my teeth and put on my oderant (deoderant)" (then I have to ooh and ahh over his clean teeth and fresh underarms.

"Wait.....Wait......Just wait a minute" (with both hands up) (usually when I am telling him to do something)

"Kingsley how was your day at school?".............."Don't talk mommy" (I guess he is tired?)

We were at the beach last weekend and I had a bag that I was putting shells in. Apparently the seagulls thought that it was food because 100 of them suddenly appeared over mine and King's head. I threw the bag and started running. King was behind me screaming "Mommy wait" "Mommy wait.... I love you". I guess that he was reminding me so that I wouldn't leave him behind. Too funny!

Promises





"I do set my bow (rainbow) in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth" Genesis 9:13
Everytime I see a rainbow, I think of God's Promises. He promised Noah and us, that he would never flood the earth again. I think of this but I also think of all of his promises to us. I love rainbows.

I do not really like to fly. Once, I had to fly by myself to Cincinnati and I was literally in full panic mode on the plane. I was praying for God to protect me and to mainly take away the fear that had overtaken my body. I looked out of the window and we were flying over a rainbow. I was amazed. I knew that this was him saying "HERE'S YOUR PROMISE". The bible is full of God's promises to us and the awesome thing is, he does not break his promises! People will break promises, even if unintentional, but God never will. He never fails. I have been so "full" lately. By full I mean, full of joy and feeling so overwhelmed by the blessings God has given me. I have two healthy children, thank you God, I have a husband who loves me (even though he is at the moment fussing because he has to constantly pick up after me), thank you God, I will FINALLY graduate with my master's degree after 5 years, I am just happy and extremely aware that GOD IS GOOD! I catch myself thinking "things are just too good, when is the valley coming?" These thoughts were running through my mind as we were on the way home and I saw a beautiful rainbow . The husband and I were amazed at how clear it was and we could see the entire rainbow. I just knew that God was reminding me of these promises. A few minutes later, I got out of the car to take a picture and noticed that there were 2 rainbows (look closely at the picture). I said to myself "Ok God, I hear you".

One of the promises that we talked about today in Sunday School was the promise of the Holy Spirit. I wrote the first part of this post yesterday, studied this lesson today in Sunday School, and then watched the end of Armageddon tonight and had a come apart as I was overwhelmed with how much I miss my dad and how next Sunday will be 5 years since he has been gone (note to self......no more Armegeddon) I am clinging to the promise of the Holy Spirit (John 14:16- 26) Where Jesus tells us that though he will be crucified and in heaven with the Father, he will "pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever"..."I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you"...."Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid".

Thank you God for your comfort and peace. Thank you for the Holy Spirit that fills me and calms my fears and anxieties. I love you, I praise you, and I am thankful God that you love me. Thank you for your PROMISES!

Some pictures and the word




14Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14





Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Psalms 103: 1






How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. Psalms 139:17-18




For I the Lord your God holds your right hand; I am the Lord, who says to you, Fear not, I will help you. Isaiah 41:13

Beautiful Christian Sister

BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN SISTER
By Maya Angelou
'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.
'When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,' I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.
' When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect, My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain... I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

It Just Got Serious!!!

So, our preacher has been preaching about Amercia's Place in Phrophecy. He believes that the United States is not mentioned in the bible. He believes that America is in trouble. Now, I have not taken the time to really research this and form my own opinion but it I truly respect and trust my pastor. He is obviously so deeply burdened by the direction that America is headed. I know that God is totally in control of our future and I know that God is a loving God but even God has his limits. Americans have turned thier back on God, so why do we expect him to continue and bless us. I don't know what the future holds but I know that God holds our future and that in order for things to change we must cry out to him. We, as a nation, must repent and ask for his forgiveness. It is a known fact that people turn to God when there is a big tragedy (ex: 9/11) but then turn away when things level out. What is it going to take to truly make America turn to God and stay there? It is serious to me because I have two precious children that will grow up in the great country and I don't want God to give up on us. Christians must quit tip toeing around unbelievers and being scared of offending them. I am offended that they have turned thier back on God and are just living the life that they want to live. Everyone complains about the economy and so on but sit back and think a minute......we have done this to ourselves. He has blessed us with too much for us to just think that we don't need him. The bible completely tells us how to live a good life but we seem to ignore and go against everything in it. So, I will pray for America and its future, I will ask that you do the same, and I will pray that God will not turn his back on us as we have turned our back on him. This is not a fun subject for it is a subject that needs to be addressed. Please pray for our country, the country that our children will grow up in.

Just a Swingin'



This is how we sometimes like to watch t.v.
