Sunday Funday...

Wow, what a day....
Service today was exactly what i needed. Pastor Aaron was talking about the fullness of God is not just rejoicing with him in his ressurection but sharing with him in his sufferings...That is experiencing Gods fullness....although pain and suffering is hard to understand, we know that God will NEVER leave us nor forsake us....

He shared a personal story of pain from his own life and i never knew that about him and made me feel like i connected with him in that way...the agony,misery and grief of not understanding why but knowing by pressing into Jesus , great character and dependence on God is what is transforming us from the inside out...

As the service ended they sang a worship song, it was the song i sang over Andy as he was losing his battle, tears flung from my eyes knowing that i needed to hear that. That Gods knows every portion of my heart and it was healing for me to sing that song again at the top of my lungs.....as i headed down for prayeri just melted as the praer team covered me with stregnth i felt i didnt have ...

As i left serice to pick up the kids they were worshipping in the kids room with hands lifted high singing travis fav song....bless the Lord oh my soul..o0o0oh my soul, worship his holy name and my heart felt so alive...

I started thanking God for the blessings i do have in my life and not what i dont have or what was taken away.

Me and the kids headed to a local pizza place and we had a fun time making pizzas.





The Finished Product




After coming back home and tucking the kids in for naptime...Jenna started singing I am free to run, i am free to dance, I am free to live for you!!!

I know that the road that led me to Colorado hasnt been easy, but I have no doubt i am exatly where God wants me and the doors hes opening and the support thats surrounding us has been tremendous.....


Start thanking God for who He is and what he has given you

                                                     Happy bday daddy!
                                    Travi's 1st Karate Class
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sept. has been a pretty busy month. Jenna has started dance, Travis has started school and Karate, and Mommy is registering for school and dance herself...

We celebrated daddys bday in heaven on the 14th and now were making costumes for Rez's fall festival late october...whew

Travis is really loving school,learning to recognize words by sounding them out and loves books....He gets excited when he gets to check new ones out from his library at school. he brought 2 different scooby doo books home today with chapters and one small pic a page, i was all teary eyed as he was listening to the stories...my baby doesnt need pictures anymore...and i still do! LOL

There growing up so fast right before my eyes....Kinda frightening...I feel like i have so much responsibility on my hands with raising them, hoping im doing it right, and giving them a good foundation...

We love our church and are getting involved there and creating solid friendships and support there as well...

Im taking a season and studying the Fatherheart Of God....and its been really good helping me understand how he loves not only me but my children and though they may not have an earthly Father...that God provides, protects and delights in them....

Im sure ill write more as the study goes on...
Ive enjoyed making a FB page for Andy...uploading pictures,letters,memories.....the kids and I will just sit, look at pictures and talk about the memories we had.....they love it as much as i do....

theres over 200 ppl who like the page who have been influenced by Andy and his story in some way, and thats been outstanding! I love listening to the stories people write and i cant wait to start a scrapbook for my kids of how thier daddy impacted this world for Jesus!

I wish Andy could of known what a legacy he left and how many ppls lives he touched whether in relationship or just in passing...

I need to gather his writings and share them on there as well....

Romans 8:37-39 (Gods Everlasting Love)
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When your in a rough patch remember God calls you a conqueror...an overcomer....to press in and persevere . although people will rise up against us and accuse us , it is God who justifies and who loves us, and that no one can seperate us from that love...no one can take that away from us....

Words spoken against us hurt, thier painful....But God renews your mind and your spirit if you will surrender to him and let him bear your load...His yoke is easy and burden is light.....He can heal and renew your mind if we set it on things above and not things below.....

God is so good to give us exactly what we need, when we need it...

Off To School





Travi and his teacher


Travi is in his second week in a new state, new apartment and brand new Kindergarten class.

He has a blast at school and has met some friends already. no ones a stranger with him!
He takes so much pride in the work he does there and even takes home books from the library there...

He said the teacher gave him a special card to put in the jar for pulling out someones chair for them.
All the kids fill the jar up with good deeds and at the end of the week...they draw names for a prize...

I guess thats better than pulling out someones chair from underneath them...haha

Good Job son, Im a proud mama!
