9 Pounds to Go

At a weight plateau, I was stuck for a few weeks. And now, perseverance has paid off and another pound came off. And I realized that even with 9 pounds left to go of my 50 pound goal, I fit into clothes I have been unable to wear since before my son was born, some 13 plus years ago. I also noticed that I feel great and have as much energy as I had then. And way much more importantly than any of that, I am obeying God with food and not fighting Him. And obedience in every area of my life makes me very very happy, peaceful and joyful nowadays. I am prepared to help and work or just rest for the Lord and that makes me very very happy. And even if years have passed, obedience is attainable and I am proof. Keep at it. Never give up. God is worth it!!!❤❤❤

Officially a Teenager

So my son is officially a Teenager today!!! Woo hoo! So, we already had the party but today he picks the menu and we started the day with bacon and scrambled eggs. And if course, we are roller blading and swimming today… his favorite things. And I am so blessed by God with this amazing boy. He has had so much difficulty with step parents but he has had a lot of good stuff and strong Bible teaching and is developing into a really good, godly man. I am thankful and blessed that God is blessing him with ledership and integrity and strength. I love my boy! God is so good and I am very appreciative!❤

Art, Children & A Party

Today we combine three of my favorite things… art, children and a party. What is better than that? We will honor my daughter’s anniversary of her birth with little friends and art and a good time. How magnificent! I really believe these are also some of God’s favorite things. I don’t believe he made us to be unhappy and alone. So the fun party goes right along with His intentions for us. We hj on or Him and His design together. And art, God is the ultimate master of. He obviously appreciates diversity, color, uniqueness, textures, all things gloriously beautiful. So obviously art is a celebration of His endless skills and He enjoys it. And of course His heart is children. They are the perpetuation of His creation. They are unique masterpieces of His design and vulnerable so He loves them dearly. So we celebrate our Maker today as we celebrate things He loves and designed so perfectly. This is a beautiful day. Yay!!!!😄❤

Fence Phase 2 Complete

What I love most about our fence is that we worked as a team family to build it custom ourselves. And now we only have one fence section on the other side to address and we can get our puppy!!! Praise God! ❤
