From Gods Word Friday #11(10/29/10)

This is being taken right from my email devotions Holiness day by day.
every thing beyond the line is quoted.
Learning to Trust

Today's Scripture: Psalm 62:8
"Trust in him at all times."
It's difficult to believe God is in control when we're in the midst of heartache or grief. I've struggled with this many times myself. Each time I've had to decide if I would trust him, even when my heart ached. I realized anew that we must learn to trust God one circumstance at a time.

It's not a matter of my feelings but of my will. I never feel like trusting God when adversity strikes, but I can choose to do so anyway. That act of the will must be based on belief, and belief must be based on the truth that God is sovereign. He carries out his own good purposes without ever being thwarted, and nothing is outside of his sovereign will. We must cling to this in the face of adversity and tragedy, if we're to glorify God by trusting him.

I'll say this as gently and compassionately as I know how: our first priority in adversity is to honor and glorify God by trusting him. Gaining relief from our feelings of heartache or disappointment or frustration is a natural desire, and God has promised to give us grace sufficient for our trials and peace for our anxieties (2 Corinthians 12:9; Philippians 4:6-7). But just as God's will is to take precedence over our will ("yet not as I will, but as you will" —Matthew 26:39), so God's honor is to take precedence over our feelings. We honor God by choosing to trust him when we don't understand what he is doing or why he has allowed some adverse circumstance to occur. As we seek God's glory, we may be sure he has purposed our good and that he won't be frustrated in fulfilling that purpose. (Excerpt taken from Trusting God)

He is learning in Kindergarten.

Looks like my Little Man is learning new things in Kindergarten.
He has just informed me that the teachers in the lunchroom "are so lame"
After I stopped laughing I was able to ask him if he even knew what lame meant. He then proceeded to tell me...

"DUH Lame means lame, as in that teacher is so lame making me eat food I don't like. Or like when your on the playground and your playing something fun and your friend says Hey lets go play something.. and then he says like race cars and you say LAME!!!!!! "

Hahahahahahahahahaha,... my 5 year old now knows how to correctly use the word Lame. :-)

Oct 6, 2010
@ 11:09AM very productive morning.. spent the last 3 1/2 hours dealing with PANDAS stuff for Sweet Pea, researching stuff making sure what we are doing and will be doing will help her and not hurt her.. Spent 30 minutes of that time on the phone with one of the PANDAS doctors from NJ. In the 30 minute phone call I feel I have learned more then I have in the last 6 months since we found out and started treatment. :-)

Oct 7,2010
@ 11:30AM I have spent all day Mon, Wed, and Thur dealing with doctors after doctor learning more stuff then I ever wanted to about PANDAS.. and while I feel informed I still feel confused, Please just keep praying for sweet pea this immune disorder is just crazy. In the mean time the house looks like a tornado has gone though it twice.. but I do have clean carpets(that was Tuesday) Guess Friday will be house cleaning day.

@ 11:58Pm Thank you Dustin and Luke for the pretty rock :-)
Little Man is calling it his pet rock and was holding it and hugging it alot tonight LOL He was very upset with me Tuesday when i cleaned his room, I saw a rock on his bed and I threw it away not knowing it was his old pet rock. So tonight you made a 5 year... old happy ♥

Oct 8,2010
@11:58AM today was my no doctor day so how is it It's noon and all I done today was more doctor stuff.. OK must got shower, get dress, clean up this place and get the kids from school.

@8:22PM Thought this was funny. Regarding
the mosque near ground zero, I say let them build it. But across the
street, we should put a topless bar, called "You Mecca Me Hot". Next to
that, a gay bar called "The Turban Cowboy" and next to that, a pork-rib
restaurant called "Iraq o' Ribs"? And a check cashing center called
......"Iran out of money" Lets see ...who's really tolerant! Repost if you

@11:14PM I'm sleepy... guess it's time for bed. I'm going to Princess's volleyball tourny tomorrow, DH is working, mom is taking the kids to soccer, then DH should be home to get Sweet Pea to softball and I may be back before Mr man does the putt, pass, Kick thing, but I really have no idea how long the v-ball will take.. Happy Saturday ya'll.

Oct 9,2010
@6:08PM Back from Rocky River.. Princess's v-ball team took 3rd. As for kids and soccer Sweet pea's team lost 1-4 and Little Man's team tied 3-3 he had 1 goal. Mr Man skipped soccer to go fishing on dad's boat today came home with 27 fish, now I'm off to go watch him at the football field... Later all.

@11:40PM Can't keep my eyes open any longer.... Good Night.

Oct 10,2010
@7:06PM Church, pumpkin patch, Lighthouse, Lake Side, Church, now dinner and in a bit a fire out in the yard to end the weekend.

Oct 11,2010
@11am I think I'm taking a break from loading photos for a hour or so :-) I still have the photos from the volleyball tournament, the punt,pass kick thing, and from our outing yesterday afternoon.. but I'm thinking I should go eat breakfast seeing how it's almost lunch time.

@12:28PM There has been reported a case of strep IN SWEET PEA'S CLASS ROOM.... I'm so scared for her :-( Since the child isn't in school today and it's Monday and the class has been empty all weekend, I'm not pulling her out of school at the moment, but if anyone ends up sick at all this week in her class I'll have to. Please keep her in your prayers.

Oct 12,2010
@ 8:19AM nothing like getting woke up at 1am by a crying 14 year old with a toothache. Still trying to reach the dentist with no luck, thought they opened at 8am. :-( Not only is she sitting here in Pain but she is worrying like crazy that she won't get to school in time to play in her volleyball game tonight.

@2:30PM I hate when a day doesn't go as planned.. I don't know why it bugs me seeing how most of my days Never goes as planned.. that being said.. here I sit not having gotten a thing done today, just being the Mom taxi back and forth all day long to school and doctors and dentist.. and it's about time to go get kids and head... to a volleyball game..maybe I should cook something quick so when DH gets home he can eat.

@8:26PM Freshman girls kicked butt in Shelby tonight... Way to go ladies. :-)
Tomorrow 8am speech for Little Man and then school for all 4 kids, 1pm dentist appt for Princess.(yes two days in row) So more running tomorrow but hopefully not as much as today.

Oct 13,2010
@10:48AM eating a early lunch, then off to my brothers to love on the twins, then taking Princess to the dentist.. later all

@10:09PM I'm on the ball tonight! I got DH's lunch packed 4 work. I looked at the kids lunch menu saw Sweet Pea & Little Man didn't like what they were having tomorrow. I got there lunches all packed up thinking how nice it will be not to have to worry about that in the morning.. Then it hit me.THEY WON'T be at school 4 lunch they ...will be at the dentist & I promised them McD's if they were good ~Sigh~ anyone want some PB & J's

Oct 14,2010
@11:04AM woke up with the worse back pain I have ever felt, it is so hard to move.. Icy hot, a heating pad and Alive were my best friends this morning.. OH my goodness just typing that makes me feel Old. It still hurts but I'm able to move a little. This I think came from sleeping in a bed with both Little Man & Sweet Pea.. OUCH...

@11:21AM Beside not being able to move without pain, driving to school was awful every time i had to use the break it sent sharp pain into my back. My sweet 5 year old says "I know what will help mommy" then he closes his eyes and said "Dear Jesus make mommy's back not hurt and don't let her die, Amen" :-) think he got the die part from me yelling "ouch I think I'm going to die if i have to use the break one more time" :-)

@7:57PM no school tomorrow, so all my children have left me tonight. Still don't get to sleep in though, Sweet Pea has a dentist appt in the morning for some work to be done.. OH MY.. So not looking forward to that.. Pray she is having a good day tomorrow or this could get interesting.

Oct 15,2010
@10:44AM Dentist went fine.. now she is back at her friends playing happily. Think Mr Man is having someone over tonight.. as for me not much planned just trying to get the house in order today..

@2:55PM I just don't feel like doing house work anymore today.. too bad it's not done yet guess it's going to wait because I'm done.

@3:29PM Way to much going on again tomorrow.. Princess has a volleyball tournament at the High School, Mr Man and Little Man both have soccer games at 9am, then at noon Sweet Pea has a soccer game and Little Man has a pizza party with his soccer team.. AND DH HAS TO WORK AGAIN... calling in the grandparents again. I need a few clones..

Oct 16, 2010
@4:22PM Mr. Man, Sweet Pea, and Little Man's soccer and Princess's High School volleyball is OVER!!! done for the season.. I'll have a bit of free time what will I do with myself

Oct 17,2010
Yesterday Princess hit her head while at the volleyball invite.. 8 1/2 hours later she was still dizzy, head still hurting and her vision was really blurry.. so Last night we made a trip to the ER and a cat scan was done.. mild concussion.. Yet everyone keeps LOL at her.. while she did this at the invite.. she didn't do it... it playing.. She walked into a pole. LOL.. ~sigh~ that's my girl.

@9AM 2 youngest R home with me today. both with tummy issues and not feeling well.. YUCK... Guess I'll do more laundry and get some work done around here today,Since it seems I'm stuck in the house today.

@10:30AM ‎:-( Oreo our kitten was just hit and killed by a car..

Facebooking my blog

I never seem to find the time to keep up my blog the way I use to, and the way I want to.. and I always think I'll go back and make up for this.. but I never do..
I had this idea that I should go back a month or so and copy and paste all my facebook updates into my blog, This will do two thing..
1) let me sort of keep the memory of what was going on, here forever in time and
2) give you my loyal readers(LOL yes all 1 of you who are left) and update of what has been going on without me having to find the time to write it all out..
So here ya go.. my facebook status updates from Sept 2010

Sept 4, 2010 @12am after working and planning and thinking about this with every free moment I have.. I can safely say that after I pick up the paper work from Sweet Pea's doctor I'm 100% ready to go into this 504 meeting. NOW IF ONLY THEY WOULD SET IT UP!!!!!!!

@ 9am woke up cold this morning... I think I like me this fall like weather. :-)

Sept 5, 2010
@ 8:30am Church then off to NL I think is the game plan for today, Though not 100% sure if I'm heading to NL right after church, might come home 1st stop by Lennys and then head out that way.. who knows..

@ 12:06pm Trying to explain to the hubby, why we need a new couch..

@ 11:50PM Please put this on your status if you know someone (or are related to someone) who suffers from stupidity. Stupidity is a real condition and should be taken seriously. You could be sitting next to a sufferer right now. There is still no known cure for stupidity, but we can raise awareness.......... 93% won't copy and paste this... because............... they don't know how to copy and paste. Will you?

@ 11:58pm Mr man is sick and can't stop coughing to save his life... not only is he not going to get sleep tonight.. I don't think the rest of us are either. :-( I have given him everything I can and he still can't stop coughing.. blah..

Sept 12,2010
@ 2PM Mr man still feeling sick, no fever, but he has chills and still coughing alot. Kept him home from church this morning in hopes that whatever is going on will be gone tomorrow because DH starts back to work in the morning and I still have this week left of the sub job I'm doing So pray he is well tomorrow so he can make it to school.. and that he doesn't pass this lovely stuff around to the rest of us.

@ 10:26PM tomorrow should be interesting. DH goes back to work after 3 1/2 months off and on 1st shift don't remember the last time he worked days.. Plus not only is Mr man not feeling Well Sweet Pea is now complaining her throat hurts.. hope she is better in the morning or it's right to the doctor with her. :-( In happy news I got... to spend time with my favorite twins today :-)

@8:06AM OK sleep seemed to have done nothing for me feeling sick. :-( Thinking my plan today is nothing.. or as little as I can get by with.. this is not a good feeling..

@5:18PM this day hasn't gone at all as planned and i still feel crappy :(

@10:40PM spent my day getting the last of the paper work ready for the 504 meeting for Sweet Pea tomorrow.. Taking Princess to the doctor with strep like symptoms and a 102 fever, and then over to the hospital for xrays on her foot, since we were at the doctors I had them look at her foot and they thought she needed the xrays.. strep test was Neg.. and won't have the results of her foot till tomorrow..

Sept 28,2010
@ 4:47PM The 504 meeting went ok today.. Thought it went well till I opened my email a little bit ago and found an email letting me know they need more stuff from the doctor.. Thought I had enough paper work from both her doctors.. guess I'll be making another call into the doctors office to see what we can do..

Sept 29,2010
@ 7:45AM ‎4 hours of sleep is really just not enough.
@10:53PM God is Good!!!!! been in contact back and forth with the school today and I think this 504 thing is working itself out.. Just need to run a few things by Sweet Pea's doctor and I think we are all set good to go. Bad thing is there is already a known case of strep reported in the kindergarten... hummmmm... might be time take Little Man in to be checked and Princess rechecked.

Sept 30,2010
@5:15PM Today started the day at the doctors with Princess, Then came home and steam vac. the living room, took the fall softball shirts over to have numbers put on them, stopped at walmart to pick up some stuff for sick kids, then over to CVS to pick up perscribtions, came home made lunch, then went over and helped my grandma watch the twins from 2-4:30pm about ready to leave for Mr Man's 2 hour soccer pract. which starts at 5:30

@10:21PM I can't stop sneezing...

@11:22PM Night all.. tomorrow holds much of the same for me.. starting the day dropping off kids at school, then if Princess doesn't have a fever will be taking her to her dentist appt in the morning, then coming home and cleaning the carpet in the dinning room.. and who knows what more after that.. maybe go get my baby fix helping with the twins again :-) though I should start on the bedrooms but what fun would that be.

And there ya have it ya'll every single facebook status update I made in the Month of Sept 2010

Tomorrow I hope to do a weekend recap and then on Tuesday Maybe do a facebook update thing for all the stuff I posted in Oct.. and that should bring us all up today.. Then on Wed hopefully do a wordless weds of Princess homecoming pictures.
