Hey There!!

Well look who is back to the blogging world.....  :-)   It feels like it has been FOREVER.  I have missed writing but it just felt like there was no time.  My FB friends would probably disagree as I am on there during the day, but I can tip in and tip out, when I blog I like to go full steam ahead.  I know I can write a little and save it but I just like to go with my thoughts....I guess my thoughts will still be there when I come back, probably will have better thoughts...that's just my little "thing" I have to deal with.

Wow!!  :-)  What a blessing!!
I have so much catching up to do.  I really can't remember the last thing I wrote about, it's been that long, lol.  Did I tell yall about my dad coming for Christmas??? Probably not.....Well he came.  Rode the bus from Wisconsin to Texas and arrived at 12:30 am Christmas morning.  This was by far one of the best Christmas's ever. He was blessed to meet his grand-babies, and they now know him as G-Pa, lol.  We hadn't seen each other in over 12 yrs....I thought I would cry when we saw each other but we held it together, and picked up like we never parted.  It was such a blessing.  My whole family accepted him and loved him.  He had a great time, and the babies wore him out.  I did cry when he left.  Not right away took a while.  My husband called to check on me after I drove him to the bus stop and of course he asked if I cried....I told him yes, because if felt like a part of me left when he got on that bus, a part that I never knew existed.... I miss him, and he misses me and the kids.  G-pa.....what a blessing.

Twins, lol
G-Pa and his babies!
Had to get one where Kalena was looking, lol.

I pray you all had a wonderful holiday season as well.

Other than that it's been pretty quiet around here. Kids are doing great! Kalena is finally getting her 3rd tooth and talking up a storm.  God has just been AWESOME as usual.  

I have been blessed to meet so many new friends on FB lately. I call them family!! Lots of new brothers and sisters in Christ.  It's been amazing to meet people from all over the U.S. with the same passion for Jesus. It's been like a big family reunion!! LOL

Well I will end this post for now, gotta let my brain get back in the habit of thinking and writing again, LOL.

I do want to leave you with this scripture though. Seems like a lot of my friends have been going through various tests and trials.  I believe God is pruning us and getting us ready for the return of His Son. We must be ready. I want you to be encouraged in your trial and remember that God is working it out for your good.  Just let Him work. Leave the progress and process to Him. He knows what He is doing. It may feel like He's silent, but He never leaves us!  It may feel like hell has come to your home, but stand still and KNOW. God's got you!! You are covered and protected, just trust Him.  Well I love you all. I pray for you all.....Pray for me as well.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  
Matthew 11:28  NKJV

 "If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers-most of which are never even seen-don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, and God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes" 
Matthew 6:30-34, MSG
