Random thoughts going through my head

My good friend and sister Jessica is getting married tomorrow! I still can't even believe it.

I wish her mom was here to see her beautiful daughter finally in love.

I am spending the entire weekend in Bangor with my daughter and husband and I am psyched!

I am so amazed by the goodness and long suffering of the Lord.

I read Luke 24:13-53 this morning. Seeing how Jesus revealed Himself to the disciples and gave them His Holy Spirit to be witnesses to the lost and dieing world. I need to be filled!

I get to see Kelsey for the first time in 3 months tonight.

She is getting married next month! Still can't believe that one either...

I get to see my sisters also and I am very excited.

My poor baby girl decided to cut a tooth this weekend... UNFORTUNATELY!

Bad timing Riley.

We are staying at a hotel tonight...with a hot the room...YES!

last night was the first time Riley slept through the night and the first time i got to not get up every four hours with her.

The Lord is so good.

No love like this

Jasper Beach

This is what we did today. It was Riley's first time at the beach and many more to come.

Saturday Morning

Well this morning did not seem like it was going to be a very good day of rest But I was able to look forward to a drive down to Lubec with my husband and daughter to get some scaffolding what would allow for him to paint way up high. The rest of the day would be Greg doing a work day with about 4-5 guys painting the church. I was a little bummed that I was not going to be able to hang out with my family but it was not too much of a surprise. Our life is very very busy. I have almost completely forgotten what a weekend was.

This is not to complain however: the weather is apparently going to be kinda nasty and so ...he called it off!!! I was even able to have a hot bath. I am a happy girl, so blessed by my family that I love so much. There is nothing better than a hot bath with the sounds of My amazing husband playing with our baby girl. NOTHING better than that.
I am so very blessed!!!

A Broken Heart and On my Knees

1 Timothy 2:1 "EXHORT therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men..."

2:8 "I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

There is so much stuff going on right now in America that is so grieving to me. It seems a though our morals are declining faster and faster. It seems as though we are on a greased poll to hell. First I am mad when I hear news such as this. Then I am sad... Then I am ripping mad! Christians! This nation needs prayer. They need Jesus. The act as heathens because they are heathens. We need to have a broken heart for the lost despite the circumstances. We need to be on our knees praying for our president...for right morals...for a right fear of God. Time is short... it is dwindling as you read this blog.

Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time because the days are EVIL.

Just a quote form Ken

"Conviction is there so that we know what to change in order to grow closer to Christ."

Topless Equality?? WHAT?!?!

Okay I am just needing to vent my disgust for all this crap going on right now. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?! Why do woman want to be viewed the same AS MEN!? We clearly are NOT the same and now that is made even more clear my endless marching parades through Portland and soon to be Farmington and other places! WOMEN ARE NOT NOT NOT THE SAME AS MEN, AND SHOULD NOT WANT TO BE VIEWED THE SAME AS MEN! SERIOUSLY!!!!!

Genesis 18:14

Is anything too hard for the LORD?

Then she had Savannah

Last week my best friend had her baby girl. It is so amazing to me how as soon as you become a mom your friendships change. Brittany and I have had so many funny memories together. We were there for each other no matter what through-out high school... Then... I had Riley. We no longer could relate on the same level. I had this amazing feeling of accomplishment from bringing life into this world and she was still home alone during the day... Then... she had Savannah. The crazy, irresponsible girls from high school turned into wives, who turned into moms. I am so blessed and thankful for such a friend as this. She will never know just how much I love her. Not living as close to each other as we once did has made my heart ache. I miss my friend. I miss having someone who knows what I would say and do in every situation that might come about. It takes YEARS to find someone like that. To build a relationship like that. We have been friends for almost a decade! I can't believe it! I love you Brit.

True Love

It is true love because
I put on eyeliner and a concerto and make pungent
observations about the great
issues of the day
Even when there's no one here but him,
And because
I do not resent watching the Green Bay Packer
Even though I am philosophically opposed to football,
And because
When he is late for dinner I know he must be either
having an affair or
lying dead in the middle of the street,
I always hope he's dead.
It's true love because
If he said quit drinking martinis but I kept drinking them
and the next morning I couldn't get out of bed,
He wouldn't tell me he told me,
And because
He is willing to wear unironed undershorts
Out of respect for the fact that I am philosophically
opposed to ironing,
And because
If his mother was drowning and I was drowning and he
had to choose one of
us to save,
He says he'd save me.
When he went to San Francisco on business while I
had to stay home with the painters and the
exterminator and the baby who was getting the chicken pox,
He understood why I hated him,
And because
When I said that playing the stock market was
juvenile and irresponsible and then the stock I
wouldn't let him buy went up twenty-six points,
I understood why he hated me,
And because
Despite cigarette cough, tooth decay, acid
indigestion, dandruff, and other features of
married life that tend to dampen the fires of passion
We still feel something
We can call
True love.

-Judith Viorst
Today for the first time I heard the voice of A little person that I created say my name. It may sound unimportant, But words can not describe the feeling of accomplishment to see such a person, who in short was inside of me only 8 months ago, say "Ma ma"
It is astounding to me that God has allowed and trusted me to a life. I am honored. I am broken. I am blessed.
