From Gods Word Fridays #5 for 2010

Colossians 3
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Defenders Notes
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry
6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him
11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;
23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

Thursday 13 (random happinging in my life)

Thought I would toss together a T-13 post for the day. Just with a ton of random things that I haven't had time to blog about
1) Last night I had to go to a parents meeting FOR UPCOMING FRESHMAN!!!!!! when did Princess get so old... and how did she get so old while I stayed young LOL :-)
2) Earlier in the week I thought I was going to have two sick kids.. both Little Man and Sweet Pea seemed off, acting like they didn't feel well and said there tummies hurt but nothing came of it.. BUT today I have TWO sick kids home from school with upset tummies and vomiting... ONLY it isn't the two I thought was getting sick It's Princess and Mr Man..
3) My Grandpa says he is doing well after having this last stent put in, but he isn't back 100% he does what he needs to do though the day but he keeps getting really tired and still having some pain..
4) When the income tax money gets here I want to put a new roof on the back porch.. well I don't really want to I have to it is leaking.. :-(
What I want to do is put new carpet in the living room and new flooring in the kitchen and dinning room.
5) This weekend is a slow weekend for us, only thing going on besides the normal Sunday church stuff is that Princess and Sweet Pea has pictures on Saturday for there traveling softball teams.
6) Two weekends ago the boys stayed with my parents while the girls and DH and I went to Toledo for Princess's 1st travel(or they call it J.O.) volleyball tournament of the year, it was a two day tournament so we stayed the night there.. 12 teams playing.. Princess team took 3rd place(gold..if you know anything about these tournaments that will be something to you, if not they took 3rd place over all the teams) losing only to the 2nd and 1st place team.. Also if you know anything about J.O. volleyball Princess made a American team(use to be call the national team, which are harder teams to get on, only the best players make them on those teams, they travel more and they play harder competition)
7)Last weekend Princess's J.O. volleyball had a tournament in Parma which was an All American tournament(meaning only American teams) and we played our bottoms off(or they did) and we took 1st place in that.
8) Next tournament is another American tournament with 14 teams. that is next weekend.
9)Little Man is having some issues with the ABC's.. with his speech delay and all he is having a hard time with the sounds of the letters.. and his preschool teacher and his speech teachers both think it would do him good to do one more year of preschool before going to kindergarten.. Only problem is he is so ready in all other areas for kindergarten.. but since reading is such a big thing in K.. I'm sort of leaning towards another year of preschool.. but Have not made up my mind. We are working really hard at the moment on the letters and there sounds here at home.. while still working hard on his speech and occupational therapy stuff also.
10) Mr Man is going up.. 4th grade, 10 years old.. and has started liking girls. ~sigh~
11) DH's work seems to be going well, even getting a little over time. Last year this time he was laid off and they were talking of closing the plant..
12) Sweet Pea makes me nuts.. she has issues with things touching her skin.. I don't have a clue what is up with that.. but she wants all her cloths big and baggy other wise she complains they are too tight.. in reality she fits into a size 7 perfectly.. but she won't wear a 7 she wants the 8's so they "aren't tight" and socks and shoes... oh don't get me started.. she hates socks they are all to tights.. she will only wear them inside out so the stitching on the toes don't touch her and they have to be thin and smooth or she will cry for hours.. I went and got her winter crocks and she loves them to wear but on days she has to wear any other shoes(for gym or whatnot) she gives me fits and pretty much loses the laces so much they aren't doing any good. I gave up on dress shoes isn't worth the fight.. she just wears her crocks with dresses and skirts.. that is if it isn't' too cold other wise I just let her wear pants to church since there is no way I can get her into tights or nylons ~sigh~ she looks like no one knows how to dress this poor child.. but I'm done with battling over this with her.. she wins. I hope and pray this is just a phase.. and nothing more.. but I had a nurse mentions maybe she has sensory issues I know nothing about such things.. maybe I should look into it.
13) starting next week, I'll be doing a new Bible study with a group of ladies here in town.. I'm looking forward to it.. but the time of it isn't working that great.. it goes from 6 to 8.. but I can only stay till 7pm I don't know how well that is going to work.. but I'm going to give it a shot and see how it works.. I hope it's doable..
Well there is my 13 random things..
I have pictures to share from the volleyball tournament but no time to load them on her at the moment.. so maybe later..
Happy Thursday..

New Years Eve 2009

Ok... so I'm like way behind.. but I wanted to get our New Years Eve 2009 memories onto my blog even if I'm like 2 months behind.
If you recall my 3 younger kids were in TX with my parents visiting my sister, while DH and I were home with Princess and her friend from out of state. Since the younger kids were not home to bug Princess and Friend for New Years Eve I let Princess have a NYE party here at the house..
This is the slide show of pictures from that night.

Here are a few of the pictures from the kids NYE in TX

And these are two short video clips from the party back at our place.

This one was taken right after the ball dropped at midnight..when they went out to yell Happy New Years.

Psalms 62:6-8
6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

I have the most amazing God..

The way He answers prayers, the way He works in our lives, The way He loved us so much that He sent the Son to come and take our punishment for sin so that one day we who are His children can spend eternity with Him.. My Lord is so amazing it is beyond words.

Back On Sept 20,2006 I wrote this post about how Sweet Pea excepted Christ as her Savior. In it I shared the testimonies of when Princess came to Christ and also when Mr Man was saved. I ended the post with this.
"God is such a great God, I thank Him every day for everything He has done in my life and in the life of my children. Isn't is wonderful how he answers prayer.
Now I sit back and wait to see How my wonderful Lord will bring Little Man to HIM"

On Tuesday night Febuary 16,2010 before bed I was working with Little Man with his ABC's he seems to struggle with them due to his speech delay and other issues it is hard for him to do the sounds. I had been fretting about this issue all day on Tuesday after talking with his preschool teachers.. So I was about ready to pull my hair out not so much with him.. but with I just couldn't think of a good way to help him learn these and say them correctly.. So I was doing alot of praying in my mind to God Tuesday about helping Little Man with his sounds, his letters and helping me to help him.
Tuesday night at bed time I laid in bed with Little Man like I do alot of nights.. I love that cuddle time and also it is a good one on one time to talk about God. Over the last few months we have had alot of talks about Gods love for us and what he did for us on the cross and everything.. This night I was just tired and spent trying to figure out this ABC stuff and trying to make up my mind on what would be best for Little Man for next fall, Kindergarten or a Pre K program.. that is where my mind was.. It wasn't on talking really.. just on cuddling and falling asleep.. We said our prayers and was ready for him to fall asleep quickly.. Then a few minutes after we prayed and everything was quite.. He said "oops I forgot".... then he went on " Dear Jesus please help me to not be bad, please help me control myself and not fight with my sister and brothers, the end" LOL Yes he says The End and not Amen, I think it is part of his speech/motor planning/delay sort of thing.. because when I say we say Amen, he says Yes I know The end.. makes me wonder if that is what he is hearing when I say Amen.. Anyways... back to my story..

After he said The End, He rolled over hugged my neck really tight and said, "I love you, Natalie(his little girlfriend who he prayers for each and every night)and I love Jesus" Then he gave me a kiss and rolled over to go to sleep.. I had tears just spilling out of my eyes.. at that moment I said a little prayer silently to God.. "God it doesn't matter one little bit if this little boys learns his ABC's or if he goes to kindergarten or preschool next fall, what matters is that he comes to know you as his savior, Dear Lord Please Let Rhett be one of your chosen and let him except you as his savior" I was still had tears at this point.. Then I wrapped my arm around Little Man and waited for him to go to sleep.. this whole time I was talking with God I thought Little Man was almost asleep.. 5 minutes or so went by with no words from either of us I thought he was asleep.. then he rolled over looked at me and asked..

"Mommy how does God live in our hearts and up in heaven?" I answered " God is all powerful honey, and he can be everywhere at all times" I didn't want to get into some big talk about all that God could go at this moment it was late and He is 4 years old LOL.. But then it hit me I better make sure he understands that God doesn't live in the heart of the unsaved.. So I said "you know honey..God only lives in your heart if you are saved" again not wanting to spend alot of time talking about all of this.. We have had many talks about being saved in the past and it was late and he and I were both tired.. He said "oh" Then he rolled over and I thought we were going to go to sleep.. but then he started to pray out loud "Dear Jesus, please come live in my heart and save me, in Jesus name The End"

I didn't have to tell him what to pray, I didn't even ask him if he wanted to ask Jesus to save him.. He did this all on his own..

Yes, I have the most amazing God and now so does my Little Man..

Getting caught up Christmas Break...

I know it is already February 2010, but I'm still posting about December 2009... yes I'm just a little slow.. I have finished up with Christmas, it only took me a month and 6 post but I have shared my Christmas with you all....
If you missed any of it and would like to know how I spent Christmas and see pictures you can view our Christmas by clicking on these. Post #1 ... Post #2 ... Post #3 ... Post #4 ... Post #5 ... Post #6 .
Now we move on to our Christmas break. For the whole break my younger three left us. Mr Man, Sweet Pea and Little Man at 5:30AM on December 26th loaded up into my parents van and took off with grandma and grandpa to Texas, to go spend Christmas break with my sister and her girls
Here they are loading up and leaving that morning.
They all enjoyed there time with there Aunt, Uncle, cousins and grandparents in Texas.. The reason the rest of us didn't go was 1) DH didn't have vacation time left, and 2) Princess friend who she meet at church summer camp and who lives in IN was coming to OH. to spend Christmas break with us, this was planned before the TX trip was.
My 3 younger kids spent all day Saturday driving 1/2 the way to TX.. While they did that Princess had her friend J over to spend the night.. J went to church with us in the morning and also to the Mall(midway point between our house and where Princess's camp friend and her family were staying at an aunts house for Christmas)
The girl from IN got to our house on Sunday December 27, 09 and stayed at our place until January 1, 10..
On Sunday we spent a few hours at a mall shopping and hanging out and that night the girls went to a movie. On Monday we took a little trip and spent the night at an indoor water park hotel.. where the girls had a blast both Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday in the afternoon the girls meet up with some of there other camp friends they picked a meeting point about an hour away from our house which was middle meeting spot where they spent hours and hours hanging out at the mall getting caught up with there friends. That night Princess went with her C(the girls staying with us) to spend the night at C's aunt house(who lives here in OH) Thursday, Princess and C was back at our place for New Years Eve(which I'll write about in my next getting caught up post) and Friday evening C's parents picked her up and took her back to IN.
Saturday night Princess went out with some of her school friends and DH took me out to dinner. After we got home and Princess got home.. we colored Princess's hair.. back in Sept she wanted to go lighter blond so I let her, Her normal color is a dirty dark dishwater blond.. but Princess was tired of the light blond and wanted to go dark brown.. UMMMMM I wasn't to sure on that so I let her go with a natural light brown which looks really close to her normal dark blond.. so she is pretty much back to her normal color now and loving it..
Sunday January 3rd.. we had church and then waited and waited till we got a phone call telling us the rest of the family was back in Ohio so that night we headed over to my parents house to pick up all our kids.. brought them home loved on them some got them into bed for school in the morning.
This is a slide show of our time with Princess and friends over Christmas break.

and here are a few pic the other kids came back with from TX.

in my next Getting caught up post I'll post about New Years Eve.. until then hope you all are well.. Happy Tuesday..
