We are Celebrating Jesus' Birthday Party :)

We watched The Nativity Story with our children tonight. I thought it was done really well and we all enjoyed it. In the beginning the kids weren't overly thrilled w/ my movie choice, but after explaining to them that this is the TRUE meaning of Christmas and that there would be no presents for them if they didn't watch what we are really celebrating, they changed their tune. ;) And, they really liked it. There are many things that I had to explain to them like the killing of all the babies under the age of two, why the people were looking down on Mary and Joseph b/c she was pregnant while they were to wait a year as she still lived at home even though they were considered husband and wife, fast forwarding the births of John and Jesus, the fact that in the end Joseph didn't take Mary and Jesus to Ebay, but to Egypt :), and why the angels had no wings (took a while to let go of that one). But, the things I really loved explaining were the prophecies that came forth years before to tell of a Savior. Seeing the wise men follow a star that they knew was going to lead them to a king greater than they. To hear the words...
"The mightest of kings born in the humblest of places."

The fact that my Jesus did that for me!

Seeing that little baby in Mary's arms~ my Savior.

Seeing the shepherd's come bow down to their new king.

I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! I just love all the music... Silent Night, Away in a Manger, O Holy Night. It all depicts so wonderfully the fact that My Jesus came to Earth for me...

For You!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

I pray you will be filled w/ such joy and peace as we celebrate His love for us this Christmas season because He came to Earth in the humblest of births for YOU.

Baby Steps and Abundant Blessings

My mom...
I really feel very thankful and blessed for my relationship with my mom. Oh, we butted heads while I was growing up, and I shutter at the thought of how hurtful it was when I told her I hated her which the reason escapes me now and probably did 30 min. after I said it. I do remember the nights of sitting up in my room and just chatting about her childhood and her hopes and dreams.
I am so thankful that she hung in there with me while I was growing up. I wasn't a bad kid, didn't smoke or drink and if I was at a party where my friends were drinking, I would call her up and she would bring me home. But, I was dramatic! I can't even say I laugh at myself about it b/c really it was just... pathetic! :)
My mom who is just 64 was diagnosed with cancer this past January. It was in her intestines, which they successfully removed, but then it traveled to her liver. She was on chemo for a while, but has stopped b/c she stopped eating. For 2 months straight she only ate Activia and applesauce. That's, what, about 300 calories a day.
A DAY!!!
So, she ended up in the hospital about 3 weeks ago for malnutrition and dehydration. She sounded horrible! Not to mention the fact that she weighed in at 77 pounds. SEVENTY~ SEVEN! She probably only weighs about 110 to begin with, but still! My sister went down there to see her and help around her house for 2 days. The nurse at that point said that she would be really happy if my mom made it through the new year. Was my mom going to die in 5-6 weeks? HORRIBLE! I can't tell you the sadness there is in that.
On an aside... I haven't really experienced a lot of death. The closest person to me was my Grammy, but she lived in FL and I only saw her once a year at best. The next closest was a sweet little girl in our church nursery that I would take care of once a month on my rotation. So, when I thought of losing my mom~ man~ that was just plain sad. I didn't want to be sad, quite honestly! I know there is rejoicing in death IF our loved ones are going home to be with the Lord. But, I am not 100% sure where my mom falls on that topic. I know that she was walking with our Lord before, but has sort of fallen away, and I am just not sure where her heart stands now.
BUT, she really is getting stronger. Even the same nurse that said my mom could die soon said she was doing better and she didn't need to see her anymore. She is up to 86 pounds and now has her appetite back. As far as the cancer, it had significantly shurnk during the last round of chemo, so we are waiting for her to take her next PET scan to determine if it is all gone, which is obviously our prayer. I am just so thankful that she is eating! That was my biggest concern.
I just got back from my visit with my mom. I must admit that I was a little taken aback by the way my mom looked after just having seen her in Sept., still skin and bones, but not a lot of hair, using a walker and barely getting around. While I was there, though, she did get out on the patio to visit with us which was a major step. Even her physical therapist sees major improvement in my mom's baby steps. But, I will take any and all improvements! I so enjoyed her company and my time with her. After all the time I debated whether or not to go, I am so glad that I did!!!
I want to write down all the ways God went before me on that trip! The fact that my dear friend, Do, took a 1/2 day off from work and met me in FL for the weekend so that she could watch my ROO while I helped my mom~ priceless. My brother~in~law pointed out some really great tickets that were the perfect times for my friend to meet me there and we both went home at the same time. That was huge b/c with her living in a different state neither of us had to wait around too long b/c of our different flight times. The day before I was to fly to FL, my youngest girl, Berry, got a decently high fever. Fear tried to creep in over what would happen if I left her. I told my man that we needed a miracle. That evening as I went to bed, with Berry next to me, she warmed me up b/c she was so hot. But, in the middle of the night her fever broke and the next morning she was hungry. PRAISE THE LORD!!! So many nice people helped me while I was traveling in the airport and on the plane. I sat next to some really great people who adored my ROO, so that was nice. ROO slept on the plane ride down~ enough said. ;) The weather was about 50 degrees higher than my home state, so that was AWESOME!!! I was wearing shorts and a t~shirt, while those at home had on snow boots. tee hee! ROO took right to my friend, Do, whom he had never met. My visit with Do was wonderful. Old friends are so great, aren't they?! I really feel so thankful that she was there to listen and just be a wonderful support. We both almost missed our flights b/c I forgot to fill up the rental car and they were going to charge me $6.99 a gallon to fill it up. So, we left the airport and went to the closest gas station and filled it up for only $4.49! If only I had remembered before, we could have filled it up for $3.11. But hey, at least we only paid $48 instead of the $78 the rental company wanted to charge me. My friend and a little praise singing to our Lord totally kept me calm while I cried out to Him that we didn't miss our flights. And, we didn't! We both checked in so quickly and got in the shortest lines to go through security. Now mind you, when I got to the gate, the plane was unloading and about to load our flight, but I made it. And, the sweet little girl who sat next to me on the way down was on this flight too, so she helped with ROO again. The turbulance was so bad on the way home. I mean, the absolute WORST flight I have ever been on, but the Lord kept us safe. Then when I got to my car to drive home it was pouring rain! And, b/c the rain was melting all the snow, there was an abundance of water on the road. But, He kept us safe once again. And, I am thankful for my Chris Tomlin CD that was playing while I was driving. It's nice to keep our attentions on the only One that can truly help, isn't it? I think the real highlight was joining hands with my mom, step-dad, and friend before I left to pray over my mom and her home and situation. I haven't had a chance to do that with my mom before and it was really wonderful. Not to mention that fact that while I was cleaning parts of her home I was praying over her and the house. She is covered in prayer all around!
So, if you happen upon this post, I ask for your prayers that my mom continues to gain strength & heal. That she truly knows our precious savior, Jesus, and for peace for my family and me. Thank you so much in advance and God Bless! :)

Okay, so it has taken me a month to post my son's FIRST birthday, but it's on here! Roo is now ONE! The year has flown. I still remember in vivid detail the day of his birth. I was and still am so thrilled that God blessed us, entrusted us with another son. My cup runs over.

I just want to write this to always remember where he is right now at one. He is walking, climbing, running everywhere. I turn around and he is on a kitchen chair~ no wait~ the table! Or when we are in the bathroom, he's on the toilet. Or in the girl's room, he's on Berry's bed or the window sill or trying to climb up the ladder. AYE, AYE, AYE! But, I will admit that I love it. All of my children have been very active. I don't know what I would do w/ a less active child. Rest a bit, I guess.

He's starting to say words now. He knows that saying MaMa gets him something, so I don't know if he knows that it is just for me or that it is something he says when he wants lovin'. He says "bir" for bird. He says "peez" for please. And he uses that often b/c that, too, will get him something he wants. The hard part is when he wants it and no one is available to get it for him. He used to say "uh oh" I am not sure where that saying went. That's about it on the sayings. He knows who the family members are and will look around for them if he can't find them. He does use a lot of grunts and baas and other sounds that aren't actual words, but he is saying something.

I love when he puts his head on your shoulder when a new person comes by. He just wants a little reassurance for about 2 seconds, then he's off to smiling again. We were are Target and he was right near where 2 isles were perpendicular to each other. A woman and her son walked by and she smiled and waved to Roo. He ran away smiling. Then he had to turn around and peek around the corner again to see if she was looking. It was so adorable!

He loves popsicles and ice cream. He doesn't get it often b/c we try to eat as healthy as we can around here, but when he does... oh man, you had better make sure you finish yours before he finishes his b/c if you don't he will be after yours until you give him some. And, when it is gone he is beside himself!

I am so thankful to have Roo in my life. For so long I rejected the idea of having a fourth and I feel so bad about that b/c I could not imagine my life without my Scooby Drew, Roo, Cock a doodle Drew (the nicknames are many) in it. My greatest desire is for him to know personally my precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! To be used MIGHTLY for His Kingdom's Glory!
Happy Birthday my little Roo!!!

I absolutely love this video!

I hope you all take the time to view it. It brought tears to my eyes! It is a skit that I have no idea where it came from or when, but it totally shows us that Jesus loves us and fights for us. He wants us to have everything He has to offer and even in the midst of us not being so close or any sin we have commited, He is there dusting us off, forgiving us~ AWESOME! Enjoy! :)

My sweet Berry started 3 year old preschool today! She was thrilled considering the fact that her older two siblings have gone there before her and NOW, FINALLY it is her school! She sang the songs and answered the questions at rug time. She played wonderfully with many children. "Mommy, I am going to be friends with girls and boys," she told me prior to her going to PreK. I have been praying for the friends she will make, hoping that she will take some of them with her after she leaves this school. She is so sweet to other children, so I am so excited to see who becomes her friends.
When did she grow up so fast?! I know we all ask the same question at different stages of our children's lives, but every time we ask it, it's completely legit. I have so enjoyed watching her grow. I love sneaking up to where she is playing by herself and listen. The listening is so much fun for me. It warms my heart to hear her interact with her toys. To hear her imagination. She makes up songs all the time and is constantly humming. She has such a sweet personality and I can't wait to see what God has in store for my, not so little any more, Berry!

Are you serious?

Okay, I will admit it I watched the Brittany Spears performance on the MTV music awards on my computer. I kept seeing things that mentioned how horrible it was, and as much as I didn't want to, my curiousity got the best of me. They mentioned that she was fat! ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!?!?! Coming from someone who still has roughly 10 lbs. to go to get to prepregnancy weight and it has been almost a year, I think she looks fantastic. Now, mind you, she should not have been wearing the very small black bikini she had on. Just b/c no one should be wearing that during a preformance. Yes, she didn't have the same abs she had before she had 2 boys and really close together. But, people need to give her a break. Honestly, I feel sorry for her and have truly been praying for her salvation for some time. She needs the Lord's love and forgiveness and acceptance to truly be happy with herself. I know it might seem silly to pray for someone like her, someone famous in the "world's eye", but they need Jesus too!

SO Proud!!

I am so proud right now. As a mom, my heart is full of joy that is spilling over as the tears well up in my eyes! My oldest child has a hard time with new situations. It is so hard for me sometimes to understand what she is feeling. I normally get frustrated and therefore have a very hard time understanding what she needs during these times.
When she had her first day of soccer practice, she cried and would NOT leave our sides for about 45 min. My husband and I had to tag team b/c we would both get so frustrated. After much discussion, she went out there and had a great time~ just like we knew she would. The rest of the soccer season was great! She played well and made new friends.
When she would go up in front of our homeschool co-op for her presentation, she would start and then freeze and run back to her seat. She did, at the end, go up with a friend to present her poem. Later she told me she really had fun doing that and was glad she did.
There are other instances that I know happened, but I can't recall right now. I am not at all this way, so it is hard for me to understand what is going on in her head. I want so badly to be able to give her what she needs, but I feel so frustrated b/c I just don't know what it is. I will not let her quit. I do that in as loving a way as possible. And, she is always thankful I don't let her quit. But, I don't know how to get rid of the drama that comes before the gratitude.
So, when she was on stage during her dance recital, my heart leapt with her! She loved it! She wasn't scared at all. She smiled and had fun. It was wonderful!
When she got her ears pierced, she confided that it was hard b/c she hadn't experienced this before and she was nervous, BUT she went ahead with it and was so thankful she did!
And finally, the most recent and the initial reason for this post... we went to an indoor water park. At the park, they had this constant wave ride that people could use a boogy board or a surf board on. You started at the top and with the water forcefully pushing upwards, you surfed along- IF you could stay on the board. I will admit, there were many a wipe out that were funny. My daughter really wanted to go on it, but she was scared b/c it was new. Once she finally decided to, she stood in line and watched as people busted- hard! Her two friends went before her and had great rides. It was her turn and she didn't get a good send off and was swept up with the forceful waves. She got off and ran to me and I told her how very proud I was of her that she tried. But, it didn't stop there. She, on her own, wanted to try again! That was so HUGE! She tried and did it two more times perfectly! She had a blast!
I can't express to you how proud I was ~ am ~ of her! But, it is not just me being proud... she was proud of herself for doing it and not giving up. That is the best thing she could received!

My first born son

"Mommy, can we have alone time?" This question is frequently asked by my 1st born. Her love language is absolutely time. My 2nd born's love language is hands down touch. Sometimes I have to watch not squashing that b/c he is constantly touching me & every once in a while I need space. But this day, he asked for time! It was so wonderful needing that from him. I immediately called my husband in and told him that my son and I were going for a walk. I gave him a scoop of ice cream on a cone, and off we went. We only walked less than a mile, but I cherished every minute. He showed me different discoveries he made, we counted rocks, and I did my best to remember every moment b/c I know, as most people with older kids tell me, they grow up too fast. I know it is kind of silly, but I also thought about all of those books on boys I have read ~ what not to take personally b/c they are boys and how to see the excitement and adventure in their eyes.
I love having a son! Don't get me wrong, I adore my daughters! But, there's something about my son. I think b/c when I taught school I noticed the relationships some of my boy students had w/ their moms and I always wanted that. I am so glad that his love language is touch. When I am reading a story to all the kids he has to be leaning right on me, or when we watch TV some part of him has to be touching me, or when we walk he will hold my hand, or when I snuggle with him at night he will trace my face with his fingers. On a daily basis, I pray that this will always be the case. I pray that we will, as with all of my children, always have a special bond. I pray about the man he will become and the wife he will have and the children they will have. I think about all of things he can do for the Lord and how his life will affect many. I am absolutely loving this journey that we are on together and I thank God everyday for the gift of my son!

The Living Word

Man, as I go through other people's blogs, I am amazed at how the scriptures that they have posted are jumping off the pages at me. These Words are ALIVE! He is ALIVE! I am feeling so strengthened and renewed right now by the precious, living Word of my Lord!

Not Alone

God has totally blessed me with amazing friends. When I moved 750 miles away from my home to be with my husband, I really knew no one. God immediately brought friends into my life, friends that I still have after 10 yrs. of living here in a place I now call home. The thing that is amazing right now is the connection I feel with other bloggers out there~ people I have never met in person but feel completely connected to just through their words and pictures. My girlfriend, Joy, told me about blogging and I never really thought about it. But, now I see that it is not just a bunch of people talking about their lives and ongoings, it is a family out there, a support to know that other people are going through the same things. I am not sure how much time I will be able to spend blogging and how many people will even read my blogs, but I am so thankful to be encouraged by so many wonderful people that I would never have met if it were not for this new adventure in my life.

Eight Random Facts Meme

A. Each player lists eight facts/habits about themselves
B. The rules are posted at the beginning of the game before those facts/habits are listed.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Thanks Joy! Now I, like you, have to figure out if I have 8 facts about myself. I have been thinking about it throughout the day. HMMMMMM. These won't be in any order of importance.

1. I had all four of my children at home with a midwife. They were each amazing experiences! My first delievery was the longest... 6 hrs. It went really well- not that it wasn't painful. My second delivery lasted all of 1 hr. and 13 min. My midwife didn't make it and we ended up delivering the baby all on our own. That was totally my favorite experience. My third delivery was only 1 hr. That was really great! The midwife knew enough this time to leave the moment I called her with my first contraction. My last delievery was slightly longer. He was postierier (SP) so even though the labor didn't last long, I had to push for 50 min. and my butt still isn't the same! But I loved having them all at home. It was AWESOME!
2. I ran track in highschool. The 440, 880, mile, mile relay, high jump, and various other relays. I was even 2nd in County in the 880. I was beat out right at the end- ugh. But, I got to stand on the podium and that was great!
3. I have met some famous people well, kindof. The first is Roy Orbison Jr. He took me out to eat my first thai food. Then he took my sis and I out to walk around Hollywood. We even spent Christmas w/ him and his family. His dad, who sang Pretty Woman, had already passed away. His Grammy was on the mantle. And, Paul McCartney was supposed to stop by to say hello, but he didn't. Herman Moore, a football player, goes to my church. I talk w/ his wife more than I do him, but he is really nice when I do. I almost touched the hand of Donnie Whalberg at a New Kids concert when we rushed the stage!
4. I love to read! I wish I had more time. I totally treasure the time I have to go to the bathroom either #1 or #2 b/c I will bring my book in there and sneak away for a little while. The bad part is that I have to finish the book and FAST! I read huge books in only a couple of days b/c I have to know what happens. Therefore, I don't read as often as I would like b/c house work doesn't get done & kids don't get played w/ as much, b/c I am always in the bathroom! :) That leads me to #5...
5. I normally read the last page or so of a book before I begin or some time while I am reading it. I know, I know, but I just have to see some persons name in the back pages to at least know that that person did survive.
6. If I could have a camera attached to my head I would. I love taking pictures. I bring my camera most places b/c I want to capture those moments. I think it would be really cool to be a person who goes to a party or event and stands in the corner to capture people unnoticed w/ real expressions. I also scrapbook my pictures. What a great hobby.
7. Hello, my name is Heather and I am a messy. There are two types of people- messies and cleanies. I am a messy striving to be a cleany while looking around as I am typing at my totally messy basement. I wouldn't say my husband is a cleany himself, but it's a huge need of his to have a clean house, so I better finish #8 and quickly.
8. I want to act. One day I hope to be in a movie or even on stage. I think a movie more. I took acting in college and I loved it. Not so much for the fame, but the joy in it and maybe even sharing the love of Jesus with those I worked with.

I am going to stop at 8 b/c I am supposed to, but now that I am on a roll, I enjoyed that and could think of more. I have no one to tag this to b/c I have only just begun blogging and don't know anyone else. Thanks Joy for tagging me. :)

Women and Public Restrooms

My sister just sent this to me via email. I laughed so hard, b/c it is so true. It is sort of long, but totally funny! ENJOY!

PUBLIC RESTROOMS...THIS IS SOOOO FUNNY AND TRUE!!!!!! When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place. Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied. Finally, a door opens and you dash in, ne arly knocking down the woman leaving the stall. You get in to find the door won't latch. It doesn't matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants! The dispenser for the modern "seat covers" (invented by someone's Mom, no doubt) is handy, but empty You would hang your purse on the door hook, if there was one, but there isn't - so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mom would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR!), yank down your pants, and assume " The Stance." In this position your aging, toneless thigh muscles begin to shake. You'd love to sit down, but you certainly hadn't taken time to wipe the seat or lay toilet paper on it, so you hold "The Stance." To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser. In your mind, you can hear your mother's voice saying, "Honey, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!" Your thighs shake more. You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday -the one that's still in your purse. (Oh yeah, the purse around your neck, that now, you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time). That would have to do. You crumple it in the puffiest way possible. It's still smaller than your thumbnail. Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn't work. The door hits your purse, which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest, and you and your purse topple backward against the tank of the toilet. "Occupied!" you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, Tiny, crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, lose your footing altogether, and slide down directly onto the TOILET SEAT. It is wet of course. You bolt up, knowing all too well that it's too late. Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper - not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try. You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because, you're certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear, "You just don't KNOW what kind of diseases you could get." By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl that sprays a fine mist of water that covers your butt and runs down your legs and into your shoes. The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force that you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispense r for fear of being dragged in too. At this point, you give up. You're soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat. You're exhausted. You try to wipe with a gum wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the sinks. You can't figure out how to operate the faucets with the automatic sensors, so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past the line of women still waiting. You are no longer able to smile politely to them. A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe. (Where was that when you NEEDED it??) You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman's hand and tell her warmly, "Here, you just might need this." As you exit, you spot your hub by, who has long since entered, used, and left the men's restroom. Annoyed, he asks, "What took you so long, and why is your purse hanging around your neck?" This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with a public restrooms (rest??? you've GOT to be kidding!!). It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long. It also answers their other commonly asked questions about why women go to the restroom in pairs. It's so the other gal can hold the door, hang onto your purse and hand you Kleenex under the door! This HAD to be written by a woman! No one else could describe so accurately.

There are many days that I NEED to reflect on ALL the wonderful things God has done for me. Not that He is, in any way, slacking in the blessings department. We were reading in Pslams about how we should forget not His benefits.- which are far greater than any I could offer. My husband came home from out of town and I was thinking about how wonderful it would be to see him and then once he walked in it was life as usual- someone needed something, someone was crying, diapers needed changing, dog and bird needed feeding, etc. I didn't get that grand reunion I wanted. I was bummed. I went to bed feeling slightly rejected, although it was nothing he could really avoid. I prayed, cried out really, to God that my husband would offer more to me than a peck. Sometimes with the busyness of life, that is what we have time for. I hate that (it's not just him, but me too). Anyway... and sure enough, he came in so affectionate and loving- wonderful! That got me thinking about all the other ways God hears my prayers, my cries, my offerings. The times that we didn't have enough money to tithe to the church or get groceries and how we decided to tithe anyway. That week we were invited to so many dinners at peoples' homes. It was awesome! I thought of when William, my 2nd born, was having a hard time breathing- very scary- and how there were three physical bodies in the bathroom w/ the steam coming from the shower, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that a fourth presence was with us. A very large, calming presence was with us hugging us as we prayed! I think of all the ways God made it possibe for me to move from my home state to one 750 miles away. The doors He opened were amazing. I think of the wonderful friends He gave me, from my old state to the one I am in now. I think of how many times His angels protected us. There was a time I was driving down the road and felt prompted to thank God for His angels and that the Bible says they protect us and sure enough, seconds later, we just missed getting hit by a car who pulled into traffic w/o looking to see we were there. I think of the times when I really didn't know where I was going and how the Holy Spirit directed me, and I knew the exact way to go. I think of the times when the kids ate berries from outside or touched something awful, nasty, germy or really could have hurt themselves a lot worse and how we didn't see the worst of it b/c God had already taken care of it. There are so many things we don't see b/c He is constantly at work in our lives. THANK YOU MY GOD THAT YOU LOVE ME ENOUGH TO CARE ABOUT EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE! What a MIGHTY God we serve! I feel like I could go on and on. Sometimes we really need to just stop and remember the way He has blessed us so tremendously! It really will blow you away!

I have to say that my most favorite dreams are the ones when I am sharing the LOVE of God to those who do not know Him. Also, the dreams where His power is at work to DEFEAT the devil. I wake up with praise songs on my lips, knowing that I am here on Earth with a purpose to tell others about Jesus. Not just the amazing Man He is, but the fact that He LOVES them- unconditionally! It still amazes me!!! MMM, MMM, MMM. It's awesome! :) To any and all that visit this post... do you know my Savior? Because, HE LOVES YOU!!!

What am I getting myself into?

Okay! Here I go. My first blog. How long will this last? Once I told my husband that I am 80% girl. How can we be married for almost 10 years and him just finding out that I am only 80% female. THAT IS NOT WHAT I MEANT! What I meant was it was like a made up name- cape boy or bracelet girl or something silly like that. Being "80% girl" means that I finish things to 80% and them I am burnt out and done. Is this a quailty I love about myself- obviously not. Should I be sharing it in my first blog instead of painting myself as this super fun, having it all together type person- maybe not. That's where the From Glory to Glory comes in. When thinking about a blog I wanted to come up w/ a title that was something cute or catchy or witty at best. I thought of calling it A Work in Progress, b/c that is what I am. But, then I thought about my Lord and how much He loves me and how He changes me and moves me from Glory to Glory. So, here I am! :)
