His Mission

Isaiah 48:14
"I, even I, have spoken
yes, I have called him,
I will bring him,
and he will succeed in
his Mission"

and he did...

Thank you God!

God always answers His Promise's

January 5th, 10, God stepped in and answered a long awaited prayer and a long awaited promise.

A little over two years ago God placed on my heart that Brandon was going to get in the Air Force. Now when and how I didn't know.. But for me I thought it would be no time and we would be on our way.. God had a different plan.

After two years of Weight issues, Waivers, accountability, 3 Different recruiters my heart finally came to the conclusion that God is doing something... and I needed to find out what God was teaching me in all of this.

Throughout the months God truly showed me as I have posted in other blog post that I needed to know what peace was in him even in situations where there was the opposite of peace and to teach me what truly having an absolute surrender in hope to God was. I also learned to pray about everything, good or bad, happy or sad, or just even a thought that comes to my mind.. and thank you Jesus for it .. I pray over everything all the time. It has become a huge blessing what God has taught me to do.

After many different spiritual experiences with God I learned that God was going to get Brandon in, and I needed to just continue to wait and serve him. *another reason one of my favorite songs is While Im Waiting By John Waller*

Well Brandon did leave and God answered.. I could write a book about this experience, and I practically have in my writing journal but for now I must just simply put what God has done and is doing..

Thank you God for your unfailing love, mercy, hope, perserverance, and peace!!

Perfect Peace

Having perfect peace with God has to be the most incredible feeling. Its a feeling of perfect contentment in whatever situation you are in. Its so perfect and I am so happy that I have finally accepted that I can not put my peace in anyone but the Peacemaking God for only he can give me that Perfect Peace!

I absolutely love the song by John Waller called Perfect Peace
"Thou will keep me in perfect peace when my mind is stayed on you,
My peace is not of this world but my mind stayed on you"

Praise God, God is the God OF Peace and Hope, and the perserverance I needed to withstand my battle and weather my storm!!
Satan tries to attack us when he sees the Victory!!

"It is Finished" from God

1 Corinthians 9:24-27
"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one get the prize? Run, in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown, that will last forever. Therefore I do no run like a man running aimlessly, I do not fight like a man beating the air. No I beat my body and make it my slave, so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize."
  • This past weekend at church was quite emotional for me. Only God knew my heart at that exact moment because still I cannot find the words to completely wrap around the emotion my heart felt. The Holy Spirit Truly laid powerful emotions on my heart.
  • The pastor showed a video as well of a man running a race and all of sudden in the middle of the race his hamstring is torn and he falls to the ground is dropped into last place. He then gets up and starts to limp towards the finish. In the crowd you then see his father come running out while security tries to stop him he runs out and puts his arm around his son and helps him to the finish.
  • Well before the video could finish my eyes flooded with water from watching that small clip. God I knew was telling me something. My heart just let all my emotions flood foward. I felt as though my prayer that moment turned into a conversation with God.
  • Let me back track for a minute,
Brandon is going into Meps On Thursday, and in the past couple years there always seems to be something that Somehow someway ruins it, I blame it on the Enemy. Anyway, although I feel very confident in him going you know there is just that little whisper telling you "No its not going to happen."
  • So Anyway , My conversation with God Went like this " Please God let this be it, let there be nothing more that we must face. Let this be it" God then whispered I think once or Twice "It is finished." Although for a few minutes I still had a hard time Getting my emotions and tears under wrap I calmed down. I knew what God was trying to tell me at that very moment. ALthough I am almost afraid to speak about it at the fear my heart is deceiving me. No, Its not, this is it!!
  • Back On January 12th of 09 I posted On another journal site I had written a poem that the Lord laid upon my heart and part of it went like this..
"He tells me, " Do not let the one who brings sorrow and doubt bring you down, You are my Child and are safe with me, He has an end but I your way do not. You live to please me and you are used as a servant to witness, but remember you are not perfect, but ONLY the one that you worship and love is, So remember you will fall and stumble and fall in the path that I paved for you but pick yourself up know that I, your Father, will Carry you!!"
  • God has and will always carry me, just like the father did in the video when his son was hurt and needed a hand. I just love how God always comes at the right time and the right moment.
  • He then Shared with me this randomly. I opened my bible looked down and read , he told me this about my husband.
Isaiah 48:14
"I, even I, have spoken
yes, I have called him,
I will bring him,
and he will succeed in
his Mission"
  • Wow, If that wasnt God telling me something as well then I dont know what is!!
Anyway, I feel exceptionally Close to God Lately and I love it. I feel as though he is hugging me and isnt letting me go.

Atheist Holiday! for Christians!

FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAYIn Florida , an atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover holydays.

He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians,Jews and observances of their holy days.

The argument was it was unfair that atheists had no such recognizedday(s).The case was brought before a judge.After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judgebanged his gavel declaring, 'Case dismissed.'

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, 'Yourhonor, how can you possibly dismiss this case?The Christians have Christmas, Easter, etc.

The Jews have Passover, YomKippur, Rosh Hashanah, and Hanukkah.Yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays.

judge leaned forward in his chair saying, 'But you do.Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant.

'The lawyer said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observanceor holiday for atheists.'The judge said, 'The calendar shows April 1st is 'April Fools Day.'

Psalm 14:1 states: 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.'Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool.

Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.'AMEN'

Mommy and Baby Outside (Pictures)

Here is my Little One, Joseph Brandon..
My Blessing

He sucks in his bottom lip as he has done that since the day he was born. On this day we were playing in the yard..

This is him crouching down to pick up his ball... Ball is his new favorite word. Only his word for ball is "ba"

I love him!

He loves to be outside... and Loves to walk outside drop one toy and then go back inside and drop another toy outside and so on and so on. Sooner or later I finally figure out what he is doing. More messes to clean, does it ever end?

This is him kissing the Sliding glass door to go outside.. with his baby infant hat on that I came across organizing his clothes. He is so sweet!
