Motherhood is a calling - Children are a "gift" from God!!!

"******I got this blog post off of "Just to Keep In Touch" and she got it off of the "Desiring God" blog. It is so good and just wanted to have it on my blog for myself. What an incredible reminder that children are a gift and that, again...it is not about me!!!*****"says Ashley @ The Fisher Family

"A few years ago, when I just had four children and when the oldest was still three, I loaded them all up to go on a walk. After the final sippy cup had found a place and we were ready to go, my two-year-old turned to me and said, “Wow! You have your hands full!”
She could have just as well said, “Don’t you know what causes that?” or “Are they all yours?!”
Everywhere you go, people want to talk about your children. Why you shouldn’t have had them, how you could have prevented them, and why they would never do what you have done. They want to make sure you know that you won’t be smiling anymore when they are teenagers. All this at the grocery store, in line…

Meat in Phillipians

Phil 4:11 b - I have learned to be content in whatever the circumstance. Phil 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Phil 4:6 (to be content) be anxious for nothing but by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Phil 4:7 and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart & mind in Christ. God is my provider, not the economy. Phil 4:19 my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory. Phil 1:6 be confident that He who began a good work in you is faithful to complete it.

It's been crazy busy here and things aren't going to slow down for me for a couple of more weeks but I couldn't miss the opportunity to post about the GREAT night I had tonight going out with friends & fam. :)

My "BFF's" hubby is having a birthday so we went to "Rib City" to celebrate...let me tell you...they've got them some GOOD food there!!! LOL
We've eaten at ALOT of rib restaurants (thank goodness for spell check...I LOVE spelling but I can't EVER, EVER, EVER seem to spell that word right...ugh - it's NOT like it's that difficult! LOL) but they have to be one of my new favs!

I'm so thankful that my sister married in to such an AWESOME family. I've known my BFF and her family since my sister introduced me at 12 years old and have been hanging with them every since...God is so gracious to have given them to me!

Me & My BFF - Melinda, you've been there for me through thick and th…

BELIEVE

John is NOT written chronologically.
John 20:31 BELIEVE!!!
John 2:1-10 (the miracle) because of Jesus' authority, he is able to take something that is unworthy for the master and turn it into something worthy!
(the jars) the jars were containers for water but once the water was turned to wine, now they are containers that hold the best wine ever. Something shaped and molded for one purpose can be changed and made to be something else because of what He's changed on the inside!!!
Jesus and the moneychangers in the temple. He has the ability and authority to change things by clearing them out of your life. To put things in order. (ask Jesus to come in and restore things in you) He brings order to disorder!!!
Everything I do needs to be worthy because He is holy.
