I was surfing through blogs the other night and came across this video. WOW...that about sums it up :) It is so inspirational and I have listened to it about 10 times since I found it. It just picks me up and I wanted to share with anyone who needs a pick me up!
My sweet, sweet girl sat on my lap for about 15 minutes last night as we surfed the net looking for different praise songs. She had already had her bath and was smelling OH so good and in her soft pink jammies. She was really digging all of the songs we were listening to. We even got up a few times and boogied down. I came across this video in the wee hours the night before, while doing a blog hop from here to there. I am new to blogging and I dove in last night going from blog to blog reading about people that I don't know and most likely will never know. I found some seriously funny people, your average everyday gals and lot's of hurting people too. It is amazing to me how so many people across the world can come together in prayer and give support to people they don't even know. To every one of you, I offer my prayers.
Have a groovy kind of day!

well not exactly...he he he! Mason, my crazy third and last child loves his action figures, super heroes, etc. He has 3 spiderman costumes, incredible hulk, Mr. Incredible, Thing (from fantastic four), The flame dude too. When he puts those costumes on (around 363 days a year) he becomes these figures and acts like them. He acts tough and rough and stomps around. Well at 5 years old, Mr. Super hero himself decides that he wants to take wrestling*. (dh was a super wrestler* back in the day) We sign him up, dh is assistant coach and really tries to make it all big for him. Let me remind you that this is the SAME child who w*restles on the floor with his 12 year old brother and gives his BIG BROTHER a run for his money. He is tough, strong, hyper and plain ol' crazy when he wrestl*es at home. So you can imagine my dh's frustration when his child goes to a wrestli*ng match and all he is concerned about is getting a slice of pizza. He pouts and whines and barely even attempts to wrestle. I just don't get it. He is soooo SUPER strong but goes out there and acts like an injured bird flopping around. he he!

F is for FORGIVENESS We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness.— In Him [meaning Jesus] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.Ephesians 1:7a, NKJV.
A is for AVAILABLE -Forgiveness is available. It is...
• Available for All -For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.John 3:16, NKJV.• But Not AutomaticNot everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven.Matthew 7:21a, NKJV.
I is for IMPOSSIBLE It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven. • Because of who He is: God is loving and just. His judgment is against sin.For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy.James 2:13a, NKJV. • Because of who we are: Every person is a sinner.For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.Romans 3:23, NKJV.
But how can a sinful person enter heaven, when God allows no sin? T is for TURN Turn means repent. • Turn from something-sin and self.But unless you repent you will all likewise perish.Luke 13:3b, NKJV.• Turn to Someone: Trust Christ only.If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.Romans 10:9, NKJV. H is for HEAVEN Heaven is eternal life. • Here — I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.John 10:10b, NKJV.• Hereafter —And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.John 14:3, NKJV.• How? How can a person have God's forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord? By trusting in Christ and asking Him for forgiveness. Take the step of faith described by another meaning of FAITH: F orsaking All I T rust H im.
Talk to Him. Simply pray...
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have displeased You in many ways. I believe You died for my sin and only through faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven. I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and Lord. From this day on, I will follow You by living a life that pleases You. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving me. Amen.
After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, tell a Christian friend about the important decision you have made. Follow Christ in believer's baptism and church membership. Grow in faith and enjoy new friends in Christ by becoming a part of His church and attending the Sunday School class a church has just for you. You'll find others who will love and support you. Would you like to talk to someone right now? You can call 888-NEED-HIM anytime.

I have never spent a Christmas with my dad and I turned 35 in December. I only met him 5 years ago and he and his wife and son came down to stay with my family for Christmas. It truly was the best gift that anyone could have given me!
The kids had a blast and loved all of their Christmas gifts. Ashlyn must have been a pretty good girly this year because she got her very own Princess power wheels car with a real radio!! She's one hot chick sporting around in that car!!
Mason learned to ride a bike without training wheels on his little bitty bike that he has had FOREVER! He got a new bike for Christmas but is so scared to ride it because it is higher and more off the ground. SIGH.....we will get there some day!!
Spenser received a PLAYSTATION 2...his other one has been jacke d up for a while so he was really excited to get this! He also got a stero for his bedroom and he thinks he is Mr. Cool!
This Christmas was so magical that I wasn't ready for it to end so quickly. Now the kids are back in school and I am trying to help the neglected house to recover!!
