14 Places To Hide Dirty Laundry!

I wonder what it’s like to do laundry in a home where all of the dirty clothes are in a designated location. I think it’s called a hamper. Maybe some people are more familiar with the term laundry basket.

Here in my family we like to play a little game called “Hide & Go Seek Laundry To Wash”! Continue reading

Avoiding Accountability

Be-AccountableI rarely talk to others about God, the Bible or any part of my religious beliefs. Is it because I’m afraid others will disagree? Is it because I’m embarrassed in some way? Is it because I’m not confident in what I have been taught?

I think the most honest answer is I don’t want to be held ACCOUNTABLE. Continue reading

Mary, Did You Know?

 

Aaron singing “Mary, Did You Know?” this morning during the Sunday School Christmas Program.

Be Thankful!

thankfulIt’s a cold and rainy day here in Charlotte. Isaiah & I ran down to the bus this morning and I was laughing saying…this is what a Monday looks like 🙂

My Facebook timeline is filled with reasons why my friends and family are thankful. Every November a few of them will be consistent all month with one reason per day that they are thankful.

So…here’s my top 10 “things I’m thankful for”!

#1 Life

#2 Nathan- My best friend. He is faithful and strong. He makes me laugh even when I want to punch him in the face… 🙂 I love him more than my limited vocabulary can express.

#3 Isaiah- My first born. My Boogman. I never knew I could love this deep until I saw him.

#4 Aaron- my precious Monkadoo. He amazes me every day. He is so incredibly smart and gifted. Mama loves you hippo much!

Good Lord…why am I about to cry?!?! Not here at my desk… Get it together girl!

Ok, sorry…

#5 My parents – both gave and continue to give so much to their children. Gigantic hearts. Very blessed to have them in my life. Thank you for the love, support and guidance.

#6 Pastor & Mother Green- I had no idea what to expect the first time I stepped into PDT Ministries. From day one the genuine love my family felt has been so wonderful. Money can’t buy what we are so blessed to receive being a part of this church. Godly people who truly care. I’m surrounded by educated, successful, motivated and LOVING people every week. Each person there makes me want to be a better person. Thank you!

#7 My job- I complain too much about it. I have a tremendous amount of flexibility and I’m in a position that challenges me daily. It hasn’t been easy. It has pushed me.

#8 My home- It’s our space. It’s peaceful. It’s just the 4 of us 🙂

#9 Heating & Air- Some people don’t have it. On my trip to CA this summer I discovered some people are insane.

#10 God- He has a love for me that is unconditional. I make the same mistakes over and over but he loves me just the same. He’s patient. He’s kind. He’s always the same. Nothing else in my life is as solid and for that I am thankful.

How God Speaks To Me

I was driving home from the grocery store the other night with Aaron in the back seat. An old Boys II Men song popped in my head so I randomly belted out…

How Not to Write Gospel Piano Chords

Last night my husband asked me to take down notes for a song he’s learning on the piano. He plays by ear. He listened to “Healing” by Richard Smallwood on YouTube and called out the notes for each part.

After church he went to find my notes so he could practice.

God Is Making More Numbers

Driving home from church this morning I hear my boys in the backseat.

Aaron: 98, 99, 100… What comes after a hundred?

Me: 101, 102…

Aaron: 101, 102, 103…What is the last number?

Me: There isn’t a last number. We just say infinity. Numbers go on and on forever.

Isaiah: yeah…God is building more numbers.

Aaron: No he’s not! He’s busy fighting the devil.

Isaiah: Yes He is!

Aaron: Mama! What is God doing?

Me: God is taking care of everything that needs to be done.

Isaiah: told ya..He’s building more numbers.

Me: (Just a few more exits and I’m jumping out of this car!)
