Truly Great People

My wonderful Savior has brought some truly GREAT people into my life, one of them being my WONDERFULLY Smart, Talented beyond belief, GREAT mom Janelle.  You should go check her blog out    The Flints   SHE IS GREAT!!!!

She sooooooooooooooooooo nails everything I want to say!!!!  (Well besides the I love my hubby part......I haven't got to meet her great hubby yet.....I'm sure I'd love him (not like she does) if I did).  We both have a certain situation we are dealing with & I KNOW this situation for her is hard.  And I LOVE that she is going to the LORD & praying about it.  Handing our situations over to the LORD at the foot of the cross and giving them to him.  Saying here you go LORD....I can't handle this I can't deal with this....but I KNOW you can!!!  I KNOW that in your time this will be dealt with. 

I told Janelle awhile ago that once you hand it over & once you truly rid yourself of worrying about this situation and you get the negativity out of your life you will feel so much better.  I think she is at that point....and I KNOW she is feeling so much better.  I KNOW she is enjoying the wonderful life she has been given & living everyday to praise the Lord!!!!!!

I was thinking about things last night and a great scripture came to my mind.......

I waited patiently for the LORD;

he turned to me and heard my cry.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit,

out of the mud and mire;

he set my feet on a rock

and gave me a firm place to stand.

 He put a new song in my mouth,

a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear the LORD

and put their trust in him.

Psalm 40:1-3

Pretty much sums up the last few months of my life.....THANK YOU LORD!!!

Balancing Tuesdays

So REALLY I am the worlds WOREST at getting my priorities straight & balancing things in my life!!!!  I always take on more things than I should.......and at the end wonder how in the world I pulled things off!!!!  I sometimes feel like the bottom rock in the above picture.....holding everything up waiting on it to all fall at anytime!!!!

I figured we could set Tuesdays aside to work on these goals together.  Every Tuesday I'll give another concept that can help you.  What things do you do to help keep your priorities straight & balance to your life??

*Set a regular time to think about your life & set your priorities.  Write down daily tasks.

I've been TRYING to do this on Saturday afternoon.....I take about 15 mins after I've read my Bible & prayed about how the prior week has gone & figure out what I need to change.  Using the 15 mins after I have read & prayed helps me to realize that I'm NOT the bottom rock trying to hold everything up.......My Lord & Savior is that bottom rock holding me up.

  Writing down daily that's one I'm gonna have to work on this week!!!!!

Goofy Text

I first have to tell you that my DH is NOT a texter!!  If someone texts him & I'm there he'll say here you text them back I don't want to!!!

So I just sent him a text that said....

When you get home will you plz bring the comforter in off the line?

To which he responded.......


And I said....

Thanks!!!!  You are awesomly wonderfulmous!!!

He said....

I know!!!!

Dude what am supposed to say to that...........Ya think!???? And a smarty at that???  Or......LOL and a GREAT texter (is that a word) to uh????

So as I'm trying to figure out what to say....DH calls!!!  And says.......If all these CRAZY people in the middle of town would get out of my way I'd be home by now to get the comforter.  It's starting to rain big drops.........UUUUGGGGGRRRRRR  they won't move!!!!!!! 

Bless him......he loves me can't you tell!!!!!!!!  Any guy that would get upset cuz slow poke drivers are in his way & hindering him from getting home to get the comforter off the clothes line is SO WORTH KEEPING!!!!!!

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

This is probably one of the easiest pies to make!!!

All you need is.......

about 4-5 limes juiced
1 Carton of CoolWhip
1 Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
Combine everything.....pour into a graham cracker pie crust & put in fridge.

I usually make atleast 5-6 hours before we eat it.  The longer it sits the better it is!!!!


Blessed with Grace



Hope you had a GREAT 4th!!!!
We had tons of fun!!!!!

We had backyard baseball games for young......


and old.  LOVE YA HONEY!!!!!!

Homemade Key Lime Pie

Cute little kids with sparklers
