What an awesome movie this was... an inspirational..

Brandon and I on our first date night in forever and went to dinner and then went to see Fire Proof. Wow, did it hit home as well. It allowed me to understand no Matter what I go through and no matter what hard trials I may experience I must love Brandon no matter how bad Things may be. Also, it repeatedly through the movie said "never leave your partner"which was very inspirational as well.

I loved how in the movie they show how Satan slowly tries to worm his way into a marriage.. like with Caleb's Wife. He Tries so hard to make one of the partners in a relationship fall by dangling some thing in front of them Like with the Doctor. And then God Steps in for Caleb when he is sitting on the hospital bed getting his arm bandaged up and without knowing talks about his wife and his doctor is the one trying to pursue his wife. God Steps In when we don't even know it.

And then how he pays for his wife's parents stuff.. that was just amazing.. and his apology..

Just the whole movie..

Brandon loved it as well...

I don't yet if I will make it to church. There are a few things I need to work out first, although All else aside I would love to go.

Last night before Bed I was reading Power of Praying Wife and I Prayed for my husband's purpose. I have really been praying for my husband and my son lately and yes, i can see results in my husbands. Small ones at least. Well Anyway, I just prayed that God would reveal to him exactly what his will for him would be and would put a calling on my husband's heart for it. What choice my Husband makes at that point be his decision but by praying I'm reaching out that God would help him find his purpose.. O how Wonderful prayer is!

I prayed also for my son. In the book Power of a praying Parent I read the chapter on a child's Salvation. My biggest prayer for Anyone especially my son would be that one day he commits his life to Christ and Walks with a daily relationship with the Lord. I prayed that if one day he would go astray that God would move quickly in, put it on his heart like a burden, and hear the Holy Spirit Pulling him back. That he would be Born Again and Baptised at his own decision in life and lead a life of Christ everyday till one day he meets his Lord and Savior!

To me Salvation isn't just accepting Christ into your heart and then you have a ticket to heaven, its yes, accepting him but living everyday repenting, Building a relationship, having a transformation "the old is gone , the new has come." Its being a servant to God and dedicating your life to him, giving all that you have to him, and surrendering everything in your life (family, money, work, etc) to him and having faith in the unknown. God will take care..even though sometimes it may get a little tough

Interesting Week

Well the week started pretty normal. Brandon applied for about 8 or 9 different jobs and Went to Home depot. We made him his first Resume too. It looks really good too. He's been working really hard to with his running and has been eating very good. No more Eating late.

(except for me, I have a sweet tooth :0) .

Anyway.. Thursday, Thank God Rolled around because I was able to get out of the house for a more then one hour. My mom and I went to beef O Brady's with Krista and Brandon.

We then went to Target and shopped for these Gift Bags my mom is going to give to people. We just bought little office supplies and such. (highlighters, pens, pencils, rulers, paper holder,etc) I LOVE doing little arts and crafts like that. If I could one day have my own business I would definitely open up my own little Arts and Crafts store like a Miniature Joann's. Like with Scrap booking and painting, and gift bags.

I love the history and discovery Channels. I watch Jurassic Fight Club and I think it is just so amazing what was once hear especially the Megladon Shark and the Colossal Squid. Just another mystery about this young world's past that God likes for us to discover! The Megladons teeth are literally 7 inches long which could range the shark to max. 70 feet! Can you IMAGINE? a shark that big! That's Enormous! I have such a fascination with things of the unknown. Like they found the First colossal squid ever and it was Huge. It was a female, and they found in the Antarctic Ocean. They thought it was a male. How cool is that though? I love watching like the Monster Quest on History Channel . They go and search for animals like the Lochness Monster and Big foot. Although I Don't believe in Big Foot I do believe in the Lochness Monster. The reason why we haven't even discovered 95% of the earths Water!! Can you imagine all that we are missing out on? I could learn about this stuff all day! Also, the bible talks about a sea creature that was called the Leviathan an it was like 60-70 feet. I would be so scared to even step foot in our waters when any of these animals prowled the ocean. One day I want to go Great White Shark Cage Diving!That would be such an experience. What if I did it at Seal Island ? You know a person cannot last even 30 seconds in that water without being attacked.. Good luck! Anyway.. enough About my crazy little interests!! I would so work in this kind of Field!

I watched Criminal Minds tonight. It was a very good Episode. I also had a wonderful Slice of chocolate Cake.. YuMmY!!!

Tomorrow Tennessee Plays!! UAB vs. UT! GOOOO VOLUNTEERS!! But we are suppose to just slaughter this team!! Excuse my use of words.. But Murder this team!! I hope for a great season!! Another SEC championship here we come!!


My mom, Brandon and I went and got some more flyer's and such done for Ignite so I'm excited about posting and handing those out as well.

I started a new book called "Power of a prayer Parent" and I am Also reading " Power of a praying Wife" I love em'!!

Daily Prayers: AF, Ignite, Resumes to go out far and wide, My sister in Jax., All my disclosed Prayers(like 100 of them), Work on my witness, Not to have such a sharp tongue.

Up TO Late Again...

Today Was a pretty decent day. It started out with a shower with Joseph. My mom wanted to go to Breakfast. We went to Jay Christopher's. My poor mom had such a bad neck all day, I pray its gone for her tomorrow. Joseph got his own plate today(he usually eats just off of my plate) but today we got him the Dinosaur Eggs. It contains a piece of Bacon, One egg, and one Pancake and A little bit of watermelon. He first ate the Watermelon, then his eggs, and barely ate the pancake. Hes a healthy little eater. I finished the Pancake... :0) And the bacon.

I don't let him eat certain foods like bacon and tuna. Stuff I don't feel is right for him just yet. He loves His grapes though. He isn't a big sweet tooth though, well i haven't really allowed him to be one. I think he has only had juice 3 times his whole life, and mainly nurses, drinks water and/or milk. He loves his Milk as well! I don't give him Hot dogs, Cake, ice cream. Ive heard alot of " You should let him try stuff, he needs to be a kid" But I found it works in my favor when he takes naps, sleeps at night, and isn't so wound up. To me though a 14 month old baby shouldn't be eating peach Pie with Ice Cream and just because the adults do does not mean I need to walk out of the room, HE is still so little. Especially when it is right before his bed time! He will be able to When he gets a little older.

Anyway, Brandon met this guy that he has been working out with for a while now and they are really compatible friends. They both want to go in the Air Force, and they both are holding each other accountable for the things they eat, they are working out together to lose whatever weight they have left. I think Brandon really needed someone who was on the same page as him. Thank God!!

One of My favorite shows came on tonight, Criminal Minds. I really like how they can just read a situation and understand why the person may have done it, the patterns they have, the reason behind it all... its really neat to watch. I made an Artichoke that Brandon and I shared.

For Dinner my mom Made Civeche. It has alot of different stuff in it. Its Kinda like a salsa but not. It was really good. Everyone except Joseph ate it. It had Tilapia and Shrimp in it. Not yet...

So Lets hear about the Poor game Tennessee Volunteers had on Monday to UCLA. Hopefully they will pull it together with this new quarterback Saturday! COME ON SEC!!! We are the Strongest Conference by far! Unfortunately my husband is a Florida Gator Fan, but I must say compared to our new quarterback their Quarterback is the best one to his College Football in a long time!

I talked to my sister tonight, I do Miss her! shes doing good I just feel bad because the Girl she was suppose to get an apartment with doesn't want to Find a job and work to get one. Hopefully something can happen for her!

Well I got to go, Brandon and I are about to go to bed!! Night!

Daily Prayers: Strength when I feel Hopeless, Air Force, Change, Madeline to find a good situation in Jacksonville, Home Depot to go through, My mom's Neck Ache to Goooo Awayyy, Tennessee to win this weekend

Upside Down Day!

  • Well the Morning started off Pretty Rocky. I wanted to sleep in (i went to bed at 2 am) but sometimes Joseph would rather get up and play.
  • So we went downstairs and He ate about 10 Large Green Grapes.. and it was the funniest thing too, he has his own little colorful bowls and I actually at first cut up Grapes and Strawberries, and as we are sitting in the kitchen eatting breakfast he starts taking the Strawberries out and putting them on the counter and you know just picking through till he got to his grapes. He wanted nothing to do with his strawberries although in the past he usually loves them. He used to love bananas but hes looking for better fruits now!! GRAPES!
  • I went to dinner with my parents tonight. It was nice I dont usually go to Dinner with them I try to cook at home but it was nice to get out with the both of them. Brandon went to the Gym with his friend Sean. Please pray for him hes ready to get in the Air Force! Anyway, My mom and Joseph went to the little arcade room and they played the Claw machine. Well The time had run out so the claw just dropped on its own and out of all the cute little toys that are in the Machine The one that gets picked is a doll of the Wicked Witch of the East! HAHA, Little Joseph Loved it though.
  • Before Dinner my Mom and I actually went to Starbucks because we were waiting on Joel. My mom Had gotten a Coffee, and I a wonderful Caramel Machiatto. I love that Coffee. Then We went over to Books a Million. My mom took Joseph over to the little Kids Section while I went to "Christian living" I was looking for Power of a Prayer Mother come to find out its called Power of a praying Parent.. These kind of books are so important to me. I love learning and educating myself especially with books that help me either better myself or the Relationships in my life! Anyway they had the book and we got it. And Joseph had to have this little Flashy Frog! It was cute!
  • Now Im just waiting on Brandon to get home. I miss Him!!!

Hello Blog Spot! I'm Jessica. This is Totally a new thing for me. Today was an O.K day. I did a lot of yard work. I cut all these branches off this huge plant we HAD in our yard. We used to have these beautiful Cherry Trees But For some reason The owners of this house decided that they wanted to chop two of them down. What a shame? They were the largest ones in the Neighborhood too.

Well Fall is almost here..YAY! Time to set out all the Fall Decorations. Yipee! Thanksgiving will be right around the Corner as well. Yummy!
