Halloween


The kids wanted to dress up and go out for Halloween, so we took them to a church up the street that had all kinds of thing to do. We really don't celebrate halloween. Every year we would have a puppet show about the light, the true light, which is Jesus on this dark night. All of are puppeteers have moved on.

This year we let Josh dress as Frankenstein, Dennis had rent old Frankenstein moves and Josh liked them. So I gave in and let him be Frankie. Evye wasn't sure what she whated to be, plus we weren't going to buy anything, Dennis found our lod clown outfit that we used to dress up in when we did puppet shows. She looked so adroable. Everyone thought she was so cute. As we walked to the church people that drove by honked at her and she would wave. Jade, well she found out that there use to be white Indians, so thats what she decided to be. My little white squaw!

They didn't end up with much candy, I enjoy the chocolate. But thats ok , we do need to stay way from sugar. That night was fun and thats what counts. The kids will have a good memory. I hope I remember also.

Blood Thirsty Fairy

Eyvette Story
One time there was a girl with her mom, and dad,and brother, and they found a fairy forest. They went into the fairy forest. They saw trees and animals and so, they followed the stream. They looked up and saw things flying towards them. They got closer, and closer, and closer. They had big ,big, big wings. They landed on them and started to suck their blood. The girl, and her brother, and mom, and dad ran out of the forest screaming, "help"!

The animals came and rescued them. One animal kicked them with his hoof, another one used their horn on his head, and the wolfs came, and ate them up. The children became friends with the animals and lived happily ever after.
Written by Eyvette Sherman 7 years old

Just to let you know, we went to a park in Waxahachie. It was a great day! We brought a peanut butter picnic and played on the swings. We decided to go for a hike along the stream. We had seen different little critters. Josh pretended to be link (character from game called legend of Zelda), and we just followed him around. Well we were walking we noticed that a bunch a mosquitoes were following us and we were getting bit. We started to walk faster but we were still getting bit. Now we are running out of the forest. Eyve called the mosquitoes blood sucking fairies. So this is what the story is all about.

Cheep Family Night Out

Last night was a beautiful cool Autumn night. We decided to get out of the house and enjoying it. I'm so glad that the weather has changed from hot hell to cool autumn. It was perfect timing because our air conditioner went out of commission last week. I have been able to open the windows and hear the traffic go by and the fire station sirens go off every couple of hour, but the house is cool.

It's been a long time since we as a family have gone out for dinner together. The kids were excited they were able to go to Jack in the box and get a$1 Big Texas Burger. Jade got a$1 Chicken Sandwich and I order$1 two Tacos. I really like those tacos. Dennis order a Big Texas Burger but they're really not that big so he also order two tacos. That still wasn't enough for him so he had to wait till we got back home to eat more. We spent $10, pretty good!

We went to the park that was right down the street and played with the plane that Dennis brought for the kids. It was really cool because it flew around us , the kids chased it all over the park. Jade and I watched for awhile but then decided to take a walk. Jade was amassed at the moon and took pictures, her and that camera. It started to get really cold so we decided to head home. The park was free!

Dennis took out his favorite game, Pass the Pigs. We would roll the pigs and if they landed a certain way we get points. If they landed flat down and one side up with a dot and the other pig up with nothing, it was called pig out and you don't get points. It was fun! Dennis won of course. The kids want to play tonight. Maybe I will win, yea right. Jade wasn't interested so she played on the laptop. Game night was free.

It's so important to hang out with your family they will always remember, especially since I'm blogging it. You don't have to spend money, just have fun! Merry heart is so good for us. The word says in Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart does good like medicine.

39th Anniversary

HAPPY 39TH ANNIVERSARY, HAPPY39TH ANNIVERSARY, HAPPY 39 ANNIVERSARY
TO MY MOM AND DAD THE TWO LOVE BIRDS

Today my parents are celebrating their 39th anniversary in Lake Tahoe. They are enjoying the lake and the nature walks. When I called them they were taking a walk with their hats on and binoculars around their necks. They said that they looked like tourist. I can picture them right now because they wear the same thing when we use to go camping. I can hear my dad now roaring like a bear to scare us. He really sounded like one.

There were many things that I learn from my parents, but one that stands out right now is that they always like to spend time together, especially on their anniversary. They also taught me that in marriage there is good times and bad but they always forgave and shown love to each other. No matter what happen they always stick together. If I ask my mom out when I lived on the mountain she always said dad is coming too. She never left my dad out. My dad wouldn't leave my mom out either. I think they are connecting by the hip. Even when they got mad at each other my mom would tell us lets go and us kids would get in the car at start to drive away. My dad would be sitting on the couch mad. The car would stop and start to back up and we would look at each other wondering, what is she doing. She would stop in front of the house and tell me, go get your dad ask him if he wants to come. I would run in to the house and my dad would say "yea"!


If my mom orders a meal from a restaurant my dad would order the same meal. I love it! If my mom thought there was someone trying to brake into the house, my dad would jump up and protected. There was no one braking in to the house but to know that my dad would do anything to save his family, that makes him my hero. My sister and I always wanted to marry our dad, but he was already married to my mom. I think Amber might have married someone like him.

Everyday I saw my parents kiss good morning, good bye or hello. They would give us kisses too! We still do that but over the phone now! Kiss Kiss hang up now! My mom has always told me that my dad was her best friend and he comes first! She is a great wife and mom!

KISS KISS!

I love you mom and dad! Have a great anniversary.

The Trip to the Guitar Center


Jade needed a new amp so we decided to go to Arlington to the guitar center. First we had to go to Taco Bell for lunch because Jade was hungry. She get the same thing all the time, soft taco and burrito with a medium drink. I got a large drink I'm always thirsty for a DR pepper.

I made sure to go on map quest to get directions, but it's hard when you finally get there and the streets are blocked. I now have to find another way to get to the other side. The streets here in TX are so confusing. Now to find my way back is going to be interesting. It normally takes 29mins but it took a hour for me.

Well, to watch Jade walk in and see her face was like watching children walk in to a candy store and say they can buy what ever they want. She just lit up! She played all the guitars and played the key boards, whe walked in to every ]around in circles looking at everything more then wanted to.

She went into one of the rooms where they had only two types of guitars and they were like in the thousands. She sat and smelt them like I like to smell new born baby heads. She had me take a picture of her smelling them. She was in love!





She finally decided to buy her amp, she bought it with her own money. I'm so proud of her. If you were to hear all the news songs she wrote you would be blowen away. God has truly given her talent and she worships Him with all her heart.

Thank you Father for my sunshine!

Far Away!

We have lived here in Texas for about a year now and I'm really liking it. Thou my Husband really doesn't like it much but I think it's rubbing off. He had a chance to go to CA for a week for a Doctors appointment. I hope that it went well!

Well, I haven't heard from him that much, he must be having a great time. Since he has been gone I have fixed the shade, the shade keeped falling down when we would pull it up. I got the dishwasher fix, it was only the water that was turned off. Clean our bedroom, there was dog hair all over the place. Learn to clean the bottom of the pool, it was really green. Had the kids clean the car, it was their mess anyways.

 Now I think I will clean the garage again! That is a never ending story. All the clothes are washed. The house is prefect, not for long though. The kids rooms are clean. What more is there for me to do. I guess farm town here I come, a game on facebook.
Believe it or not, but I have been making dinner every night. Remember Dennis is the cook in the house. I have made my favorite spaghetti, chicken nuggets, burritos, steaks, hot dogs,and pizza. Ok, I confess, we went out a few times. What can I say I try! I really want to make my mom's tuna casserole, yummy!

We miss Dennis and hope that he is having a great time. I hope soon he will call and give us a up date on everything. I think he is going to a car show today with his friends Bob and Joann. That was nice of them to let him stay at their home.
 They do have a nice home.

 Bob is a retired police officer and Judge, Joann is a retired detective. So I know nothing can go wrong. I miss my old home! The weather is so nice and the view is beautiful. I know that Dennis is loving it up there in Lake Arrowhead.
Even though he is far away we are missing him here at our new home in Texas. We are praying for you Dennis, I love you.

Sunshine is coming home

She cracks me up! Grrrrrrr and peace out!

I have one more day before my sunshine comes home. I can't wait to put my arms around her and smell her head. This was the longest 3 weeks ever. I don't think I will ever let her do this again. I slept in her bed once well she was gone. I tryed not to slobber on her pillows, but oh well. I have truly missed her.

See, she would go everywhere with me, she is like my right hand man. So I was lonely with out her. We would go to walmart, the bank, takes drives, and go to church, somtimes sneak a movie. And if she wasn't with me then she would be in her room playing her guitar all day and all night. Now the house has been very quite except when Josh and Eyve would fight..... When she would play I would listen and be blessed on how she worshiped God. I can't wait to hear her play again. The Lord has been doing a good work well she has been gone. I know that she must have written a new song or amybe a few new songs.

We will pick her up at 10:45pm at the airport. I pray for traveling mercies for her. Josh and Eyve are excited to see their big sister too. Josh even cried for her and made her a card, but I'm not suppose to tell anyone. The good thing is Jade won't be mad at them because they did stay out of her room. She hates for them to go in her room when she's not in here. One time thou she allowed them to go in and get on her hammock, that was nice of her. (What can I say teenagers)

We still have to go and sign her up for school, which gives her a tummy ache just thinking about. Thursday we have a big day ahead of us. Wednesday will be fun because she is wanting to see her church family. She missed everyone and told me how much she appreciates them. I'm so blessed to have her as my daughter. God is so good!

Visitors


It's been 3 weeks and I haven't seen my sister and her new husband James. I use to see them all the time either at church or here at my home on the weekends. The house has been so quite. Not that they are loud or anything. It was just nice to have people over to visit..... I love visitors.
Yesterday, I got a call from my sister and they're coming this way and wants to stay with us. YAY! We were so excited! Joshua and Eyvette helped clean the house. Josh vacuum, Eyve help clean the living room, and I clean the bath rooms. Thank God the kitchen was clean already from the morning, I got up at 5am. They sleeped in Jades room on Ambers old bed. Amber loves that bed.

We stayed up and watched movies and ate junk food. They went to bed around 2am but not me, I couldn't sleep. So I worked on my farm ( facebook farm). I know! To my surprise, Jade was on the internet, so we chatted for awhile. She really enjoyed staying with her grandparents (my parents) and really didn't want to leave.  She had so much fun! Grandpa played the piano and Grandma dance around for her. What good grandparents!

Well, I finally went to bed around 3, the only thing is that it takes me awhile to fall asleep. So I toss and turn. The alarm went off and Dennis got up. I can smell bacon and everyone was staring to get up. Eggs, bacon, hash browns, toast, and coffee, it was a good breakfast. Dennis has always loved to cook. He makes really good dinners too.

Amber and James are off doing there thing, We will see them tonight,so maybe the kids and I will go out. Eyve wants to go on a date. She ask Josh to come along. Wasn't that nice of her. She likes to go to the book store and read the books. Josh likes to look at the drawing books. The good thing is that it doesn't cost money, well ,only if I don't buy a ice chi.

Can't wait to see my Sunshine!

Rise Early in the Morning



Some of you will be blown way about how early I got up today. As you all know I like to sleep in. I got up at 5am. No way, right! It was good for me to get up early. I cleaned the kitchen, the bathroom, and wash two loads for clothes. Its was all good. I even made muffins for breakfast for Dennis and the kids.

I was able to do my study and spend time with the LORD. Good time in the word! He spoke to me about all kinds of things. First of all that He says" I am the LORD, and there is no other, I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity, I the LORD, do all things." (Isaiah 45:7) What, He created calamity. I need to meditate on that one some more. I know He allows thing to happen so we can be more like Him. It's so hard to be a loving, forgiving and a peacemaking person when something bad has happen or someone has wronged you (me).

Also, about marriage, "But even if you do marry you have not sinned: and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you." (1 Cor 7:28) Which mean those who get married will have troubles and problems. I never seen that before.... No wonder why some many marriages are going through tough times. I can speak on that one. How are flesh gets in the way. Boy do we need to learn to be Christ in our marriages! Remembering that we made a commitment to Jesus for better or for worse. It's a test to see how commented we are to Jesus.

Today will be a good day, I need to have a thankful heart. Thank you Jesus for getting me up so early. Thank you for letting everyone still be in bed. Thank you for being a good Father to me. Thank you for always provided. You are so good!

Today Jade will be hanging out with her grandparents and also some of her friends for CCLA. She has not seen her friends in a year. I pray that she will be blessed and I can't wait to have her come home on Tuesday. My parents are so excited to have her with them for awhile. Have fun sunshine!

I have be so involved in this game called the farm town. It's where you created your own farm. You plow and sow and then harvest. Then you go to the market place and sell what you have. You can buy animals, trees, flowers, homes and all kind of things. I like it because it takes my mind off other things. I think deep down in side I wish I had my own farm. I have a cow and one sheep. I would like to have 7 sheep because it will remind me of my 7 children. I'm telling you, you better be praying for me. I'm a little stir crazy from being in the house to long. I'm not a game person, just ask my son he always wants me to play with him, but it's not my thing. People have the wii some have play station, but I'll stick to playing  farm town.

Today, we get to have a free pizza. The kids love pizza. Tuesday we had free Tuesday tacos from Jack in the box, I love those taco! Lets see what we can get tomorrow for free! Thank you Jesus!
Well, I think I'm just rumbling now. I must be tired, maybe I'll go back to bed. The house is still so quite.

I love my pj's


I have been in my pj's almost everyday now. Well, yesterday I went to Wallmart to buy a few things but went right back in to my pj. I love my pj.'s I just don't sleep in my pj's I do everything in my pj's. I clean in my pj's, read in my pj's , I blog in my pj's and even baby sit in my pj's. They're the most comfortable clothing I can wear.

When I knew that people were coming over I would wait till the last minute to change my clothes, now it's who cares I'll just stay in my pj's. When I go out I try to get all prettyed up (is that a word prettyed) for Sunday church but as soon as I get home my pj's are waiting.

My kids are having so much fun in the pool and I'm watching them in my pj's. I was wondering should I just jump in? No, then I would have to get in to my bathing suit and I don't like my bathing suit much. Ok, I don't like how I look in my bathing suit.

I can depend on my pj's. They will always be there for me. I love my pj's! And I don't look to bad in them either.

The Last Couple of Weeks


I haven't had a chance to blog this last couple of weeks. It seems like right after the wedding all kinds of things needed to be done, but they're not getting done! My body has been in pain and I'm so tired. I had a pounding headache yesterday. Now, my right hip and leg is in pain. My toes are numb. I think it's a pinched nerve (sciatic nerve) I know that I didn't spell that right.

I had two studies to complete plus teaching the kids for church. Trying to get the house in order can be hard when your not feeling well. The kitchen is a mess! Dennis had to wash the dishes because he got tired of looking at the mess. I have loads of clothes to wash because I didn't wash them when my family was here. Towels and towels to wash. When you have a pool you have towels to wash. My two brats think wow mom won't notice our rooms. They're room was hit by a train (train wreck).

I still have a house to clean, the linen from the wedding is still in the living room. I think that the lady is coming tomorrow to pick them up. I still have other wedding things in the front room, I need to find a place for them. I thought maybe I can use them again or some one may need then. So if you know anyone let me know.

My Jade which I call my sunshine is in CA with her father. She is being used by God! Her cousin gave her life to the Lord and she got her father to read the word with her. She asks for prayer because it is a battle. She really misses home and she really appreciates her church. I can't wait for her to come up. I sing this song to her called You are my Sunshine. So I told her that I can't see the sun and it's so gloomy here with out my sunshine. She says's "mom"!

Well, I talked to my sister but not real long. She has been busy taking care of James, he is really sick. She is being such a good little wife. Today she washed 8 loads of laundry and clean the apt. She called our mom to find out how to make meat loaf. My mom make the best meat loaf. It's so weird for me to realize that she now has her own little place and husband and live in OK. To far for me but that's where God has her. I love you sister!

It's just us here (Dennis, Josh, Eyve, and me) It's quite! I was so used of having a loud house with all the kids around. I have to get use to having a small family now. I'm going to have twin boys tomorrow and their brother Kamoron over for awhile. So that's cool ! I like it when the house is full. Friday I will have the Ferrington kids over too. That will keep me distracted for while till Jade gets home.

God has been speaking to me, so off I go to my other blog.
Thank you mom for encouraging me to blog!

The Williamsons' Wedding July 25th 2009

Wow! My sister is married and it was such a beautiful wedding. It was perfect! I can’t wait to see the pictures. I found this one on face book and grabbed it. She is glowing looking in to his eyes with love and he looking it to her eyes, as they committed to one another and the Lord. Amber made the wedding dress look even more beautiful. The dress was a v neck with lace and pearls. The train was the right length. James looked handsome in his uniform.

The candles lit with soft lights in the back ground. As she walked down the aisle with our father, she couldn’t take her eyes off of James and I looked over to see James he couldn’t believe that she was going to be his bride forever. I think that he is the luckiest man in the world to have found my sister.
Before she went to the church, our Mom helped her get dressed and our Dad slipped her shoes on. It was a great touch as I remember them getting her dressed when she was a child. I had the pleasure to put pearl earrings on her. This was a miracle because I’m blind without my glasses. My parents had their last drive with their little girl as Amber Cano. She will always be their little girl, but now she is Amber Williamson.



The church and the reception were decorated so nice with candles and soft lights. Jade and Lindsey sang, “Feels like Home” while they had their first dance being married. The father and daughter dance was very special they have their very own song that our Dad would dance and sing to her. It’s called The Blue Danuby.

The night ended with watching James and Amber drive away to the honeymoon. As my Mom and I had tears of happiness waving good bye. She’s all grown up! I love you sister your wedding was perfect and you were beautiful. But you have always been beautiful inside and out.

Six Days to the Wedding


Wow, my body hurt so much today from yesterdays cleaning. I still have so much more to do. Most of my family will be staying here with me. I'm so excited!!!!! I want the house to look really nice since they haven't been here, They are all from out of state. My parents, fefe (my mom's little dog), my two daughter. and one of my sons in law. Thank God I have room. I wish Jacob, Kim and Ash were coming.

This week will go by so soon with running errands, (I still haven't found my shoes), moving Amber's things, running back and forth to the airport on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Decorating the church and the reception. I hope that I can spend time with my family. My parents will want to be with sistah, but I don't blame them she is the one getting married. Crazy week for all of us. I talked to Amber and James tonight and they have so much to do too. The happy couple can't wait. Thursday they will be getting their license. Lets keep them in prayer.

We found her song to dance with our Dad, she has been looking for it (Blue Danuby). I'm so happy for her. I'm so happy to be in her wedding. I love her so much. We have been praying for her husband for awhile, my mom had a dream about him before Amber meet him. She said,"he looked like an angel". She was right he does look like one. They make such a handsome couple.

Well, I won't be blogging for at least a week. But, I will have news about the wedding and some pictures.

Spring cleaning, Summer cleaning, Just cleaning


Today started off kind of slow, but that's ok, because I go to bed pretty late. I spent time in the word and Jesus keeps telling me to worship Him with thanksgiving. Did you know true worship is obeying Him. So that's what I'm trying to do. Thank God for His mercy!

Anyways, I'm slowly cleaning the house. I cleaned the dust off the fans, the cob webs from the windows and walls, dust the fireplace, dust the picture frames, and the TV. Vacuumed the carpet that I hate,(christmas green), vacuum under the couch. Cleaned the windows... those dogs sure make a mess with their wet mouths, rubbing all over it.Well I'm watching at the kids in the pool.





The living room is nice and clean, till dinner time. Now the living room table needs to be clean again. Tomorrow for sure I will have to vacuum again because it never ends. Skip (dog) sheds all year around.


I cleaned the bathroom, which isn't that hard since it's small. The toilet, the floors, the sink, and the counters are cleaned. The fresh towels which we will need before the night ends. Upstairs bathroom I'll leave Jade to clean. I wish Dennis would fix that shower so we can use it. There is a water leak, but you need lots of money for that project. Oh, money doesn't grow on trees!


The kids need to clean their rooms still, but you know how a 7 year old and 10year old clean. So I will be up there to finish those jobs. Family will be sleeping up there. My family are staying with me for the wedding. I need fresh sheets and blankets. I'm so glad that their my family and they know how it is. I'll get Josh to vacuum the stairs.

The last thing that needs to be done beside the yard, is the kitchen. I hate washing the dishes. I wish someone would fix the dish washer that I have never used since I moved in here. I don't know if the water is hooked up to it. It sounds like it works just no water. I never had a dish washer, 7 kids later and bought a home with a dish washer. I was so excited, but it doesn't work. Dennis says we have three dish washers Jade, Josh and Eyve. I can't get my self to make them do it, since I hate it my self. So I guess I'll do the dishes again.... maybe tomorrow.

I have clothes and towels to wash. Thank God I'm not doing those by hand. Dennis bought me really nice washer and dryer, the new kind that has the window in the front.Since we have a pool every day is wash day. Towels, and towels, and towels, don't get me wrong I love the pool. Today was a great day to jump in after I cleaned because I was sweating like a pig (does pigs sweat?)

Well, now that I read what I blogged, no wonder why God wants me to worship Him with thanksgiving. My heart isn't right.

Thank you God for my two hands so I can clean, thank you for my two feet so I can walk, thank you for giving me eyes to see and fingers to type, thank you for the roof over my head and a pillow to rest my head, thank you for my kids that love me and give me kisses. Thank you for this wedding so my family can come out and be with me. I do have a lot to be thankful for! I have a house to clean.

New friends that are spreading the Gospel

Today was a good day, we had the pleasure of having lunch with Bill and Lenore Martin. They had invited us over for lunch and fellowship. The kids got to go out to the garden and pick veg tables. They picked cucumbers, onions,, carrots , and squish. In their garden they had watermelon, cantaloupe, green beans, tomatoes, and other types. They had different types of flowers for the bees and also had sunflowers that were beautiful.

It was a good day of fellowship. This family has served the Lord and continues to through a ministry called Wycliffe.Their vision is to see the Bible translation program in progress in every language still needing one by the year 2025. Lenore was able to tutoring kids and development the Adapt it translation software tool.

I Pray that who ever reads this will keep them in prayer, these our things that they want us to pray for.

Pray that, according to His promise, the Lord will "do more good to us than ever before (Ezek 36:11)

Pray for the Lord to supply additional prayer and financial partners in such a way that we can proclaim (as Paul did) with confidence that "You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God."(2 Cor 9:11)

Pray the the translators who are working in difficult places around the world, that their tools (including software tools) will work well as they translate God"s word for those still waiting for it.

Continue to pray that Chales will have the resources he needs to coordinate Adapt It training and Scirpture use for translation programs on Manus island in PNG.

Pray for the others on the Adapt It team (Bruce Waters, Graeme Costin and Bob Buss), that they will continue to make good progress even though my contribution will be limited while I am working full-time on partnership development.

If any one wants to give a Tax- deduction gifts should be made payable to Wycliffe Bible Translators, with a separate note designating "for Bill & Lenore Martin.
I'm so thankful to know this couple and help by praying for them.And being part of spreading the Gospel.

Happy Birthday Brook


JULY 10. 1986

Today is a very special day. Twenty three years and nine months ago, I found out that I was going to have a baby. I was so excited! David and I went to the doctors to confirm that it was true. You know, at home we (I) took the pregnancy test. I had to pee in a cup and dip the little stick into it, and then you have to wait for the plus+ sign, which meant I was going to have a baby. When the doctor confirmed, we were so happy. She was going to be the first grand baby on both sides, but also our first baby.

In those days only some of the doctors gave an ultra sound to find out what the sex of baby was going to be. So we had no clue. During the baby shower they use to due this thing where you would take your ring off and put it through a string, then you would lay down, and hold up the ring to see what way it would turn. I forget which way it turns but they said that she was going to be a boy. Thank God she wasn’t because all I receivedwere girl things.

The day I gave birth I remember that everyone was there. My parents, his parents, the uncles the aunts, and it was a little crazy for me. I didn’t care who was there. I just want the pain to go away. They all waited patiently for the arrival. It took 5 hours which was great for me. Everyone was right outside waiting, pacing back and forth. David was ready to hand out cigars that had a baby boy label or baby girl labels. They really weren’t cigars they were gum that looked like cigars.
The time came as they heard me yell, and then it was quite. They ask, “What’s going on?” David ran out and told them it was a girl. I can hear the excitement, the joy, and the cry of happiness. Grandmas fighting already saying, "that’s my baby", "no that’s my baby." Grandpas, they can care less, they were happy it was over.

As soon as they handed her over to me I thought, what an angel. She was gorgeous and she still is. I couldn’t believe she was mine. You know God says that children are a reward from Him.... Boy was she! I couldn’t take my eyes of her and I loved to smell her head. I still do!

Now she is 23 years old, she’s a beautiful young woman that loves the Lord and her Husband. She has been such a great example to me. I’m so proud of her, she has always been respectful and responsible. Everyone loves her. I can’t wait to see her in a few weeks to put my arms around her and smell her head. I love you Brook, have a great birthday, and know I wish I was there to be with you. You will always be my Angel, my first born, my love. So here it goes!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to my Angel, happy birthday to you.Mommy

God is Good


It’s 1:14 in the morning and I got all my home work done. The kids are asleep and Dennis is in the living room watching TV.... I think he is eating. When I got home from church the house smelled so good. He had made a roast with graving and some vegetable soup. I was so hungry, but today I was fasting, so I couldn’t eat today..... It would be today, right!

Today was a pretty good day, but I got frustrated about something and just wanted to give up. Thank God for friends. My friend prayed for me and reminded me that I needed to be still and know He is God. I always seem to want to fix the problem, and I can’t, there is nothing I can do about the matter. I  have to give it to Him, but and then take it back. I hate that! I need to pray!

Anyways, all I needed was to have a friend to pray and minister to me. It’s so important to fellowship. God used her and I was strengthened. Not only that, I bless with a drink, I wanted an ice chi right before I went to church, but I couldn’t get it. The Lord used her again and she brought me one. I also know that my kids were blessed and someone brought them something to eat.... they were hungry. That was God just telling me I hear you and know what you need. God is so good!

So thank you my friend, I love you!

Now maybe I can get some sleep. The only thing is I’m not tired yet. Yeah, I did sleep last night, and I think I had a dream.

Wow


Wow, I slept 10 hours today. I fell asleep around 3am and I didn't get up till 1pm. Crazy I know! Well, I started my day spending it with Jesus, I love it because he speaks to me so clearly. I read with the kids and fed them. Ok, they fed them selves! And now it's 3:30. I have homework to do, Crown Financial and The life of David. It's every day homework and I have to do it. Not that any one is making me, but I just want to know more about the bible.

Today might have started of late and I have so much to do, but I know that because I made God first, God will help me get everything else I need to do get done. So, off I go! I need to just stay busy in the Lord's business. I hope that I will sleep tonight!

That's What I Get



Yay, I got to rest yesterday and do nothing. I don't believe it! Well, I went to church but that doesn't count. I put my pj's on, I took a little nap, and watched a little TV. It felt really great since I didn't sleep well the other nights. But Guess what, I didn't sleep at all last night. Yes, I'm still awake!

I stood up all night. It was easy since Dennis and the little ones stay up playing games and Lego's. They don't get to bed till maybe 1am or 2 sometimes 3am. I can't sleep because I can hear them. Dennis comes rolling in and by that time, I'm fully awake. Don't get me wrong, Dennis is a great father to them. He loves playing and spending time with them.

So this morning well I hung out in the living room a took advantage of this time and prayed, then I started to think.... . I thought about everything...... The house needs so much work, I get to see my girls in a few weeks, my parents will get to see all of us. The back yard looks terrible.... the pool better not be green. With all my thinking, I guess I didn't notice that the power went out. I thought, did I pay the bill? It was out only for a few hours.

Now the kids were waking up and they wanted breakfast, I found out quickly that there was not one dish clean. Matter of fact the whole house was in an uproar. I had a lot of cleaning to do. I think it must have taken me more than a hour to clean the kitchen. I have no dish washer! By the time I was done it was time for women's bible study.

Ok, I better stop complaining before the ground opens up and swallows me. I hope that since I worked so hard today that I will sleep like a baby tonight. Let me look, it's 10:10pm right now. To much activity going on for me to go to bed. Eyvette is taking a shower, Josh watching qubo TV,and Dennis upstairs playing bounty hunter. Jade pushing me to hurry up because she wants to go on facebook. She actually is walking around me at the table I'm sitting at while listening to the cell phones music (Shawn McDonald). What can I say!

Good night Journal!

Rest and Do Nothing

Yeah Right
It was a great day yesterday. My family and friends came over and went swimming. Later they went to see the fireworks at the park. I was to tired so I stayed home and watched them from my drive way. I look up into the sky, stairing at all the sparkles that come down, well the cars were driving by and the head lights flashing in my face. I still enjoyed it!

I didn't want to get up this morning. I set the alarm for 8am because today was church. I needed to be there at 9am. I hit the snooze button and that's all I remember. Jade and I had 15 minutes to get ready and get to church. I was late! I decided to leave the kids in bed and let them rest. When I got home they were still sleeping (12:00pm). The house was quite and the sound was so nice. When they woke up (1:20pm) they were mad at me for not waking them up and taking them to church. They truly enjoy and love church.

Well, I think I'm going to just rest and do nothing. The house is such a mess but what can I say, I'm tired! There is so many things I got to do though. Like clean the kitchen, fold the clothes, vacuum the living room, (forget the bedrooms) ,and do my study for crown financial. Oh what about dinner? Thank God Dennis likes to cook. Ok, maybe I won't rest and do nothing.
Rest.... it sounds so good!

What I Miss About 4th of July


This blog will be different from my other blog bridget247.wordpress.com . This one will be on just my everyday life with my family and friends. I guess maybe, I like to bloging because it seems like I'm being heard...... Why do people blog?

Today reminds me of when I was a child. I remember taking a picture with my brothers on July 4th 1976. Amber wasn't born yet.... I have to find that picture! We were holding up a box of fireworks that said 1776. It was 200 years of celebration. I'm trying to remember more but what can I say. We always had people over, family, and friends from across the street . We had corn on the cob cooking on the barbecue. I remember just having fun, running around lighting fireworks. Didn't have to worry about anything much in those days.

Today we will stay home and go swimming. My sister, James, and Lindsey are coming over. I think Monica and the girls might come too. It's so different not having all my kids here. Brook, Megan, Ashley, and Kim  are doing their own thing in different states this year. I miss them sooooo. My parents would be too if they weren't in CA.

In Crestline California we would be on our mountain looking over the lake, we can see the firework show. It was a beautiful view. Great show! The city would put it together and it cost 20 thousand dollars..... I have those pictures somewhere. Even though it is a different season for me. I know we will still have a great day.

 I do have my memories, I think! We would hike through the woods and there was a place the girls called the rock. We can see everything. It was just a nice place to sit and meditate. I do miss the rock.
