Waiting....we all are waiting for something

Heard a song on TV today and one line from it keeps ringing in my head:

I am waiting on you and I am peaceful!

Wow...if that's not a challenge...

Here are they words to the song by John Waller : I am Waiting.
I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I’m waiting
I will serve You
While I’m waiting
I will worship
While I’m waiting
I will not faint
I’ll be running the race
Even while I wait

I’m waiting
I’m waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I’m waiting on You, Lord
Though it’s not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait

I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting
I will serve You while I’m waiting
I will worship while I’m waiting on You,Lord

What a standard to live by!

So sweet

Every night Jason puts Blake to bed. I then go in a half hour or forty five min. later and rock Blake. Usually he is still awake and as I rock him, I smile at him, he smiles at me, he giggles, i tickle my nose with his nose, and he giggles some's a sweet time that I always look forward to.

As I went to rock Blake to sleep tonight, it was the same routine...mommy smiles at Blake, Blake smiles at mommy, mommy tickles Blake's nose with her nose, and then Blake giggles. it was a sweet moment, but something followed that was even sweeter. Blake kept eye contact with me for a little longer than normal and i looked into his eyes as he grinned at me and said, "Blake, Jesus loves you. I hope you have a relationship with Jesus early on." As i said that he folded his little hands together and bowed his head and closed his eyes. He thought i was praying. I was so touched by the fact that when I said Jesus he equated that with us praying.

What a sweet moment for Blake and i to share. I do hope he knows early on in life that Jesus loves him so much...and hope i can be the one to lead him to Christ when he is old enough.

A year later

We did it! I was so worried we weren't going to be able do something I wanted to do so bad because of our busy lives and the weather. But yesterday we went and had a wonderful time. It was a little muddy and windy, but the weather ended up being nice. When we first got there Blake went on a pony ride. He did so well. Dad walked by his side and even let go of Blake so that he was riding all by himself. Mom then spotted a huge slide that she thought daddy and Blake would enjoy. Sure enough they went down the huge slide and Blake didn't cry a bit. Just across the slide was the train took blake on that one. He did great. He did keep asking for dad, but he did wonderful. Then daddy and mommy had to have something that they both love and always talk about....a funnel cake. Blake didn't want any of it, so mommy and daddy had it all to themselves. We had a great time today.

As we were walking around the patch, I was recalling last year when we went. Blake had his helmet and was just over 6 months old. That was the day that he started to babble so much more. It was a beautiful day as well...but man how time does fly.

We were leaving the patch yesterday and daddy said, "Bye pumpkin farm, we'll see you next year" I turned to daddy and said...yep...and maybe when we come back mommy with be pregnant again! Wow how so much really does happen in just one year!

Not to far off...

And haven't even started to do anything about it. I can't believe that Christmas is just two and half months away. I haven't started to plan anything. I usually like to pick up some things here and there for shopping. I haven't even given much thought about what cookies to make or anything. This year there is so much up in the air for grandpa is very ill and jason's dad is too. It's hard to plan ahead when you don't know what is going to happen in just two and half months. I do know though, regardless of what cookies I make or what gifts I have or haven't bought, being with family is all that NEEDS to happen at Christmas.

I used to think God's will was mostly a vocation or had to do with making a big decision. However, this past weekend I realized that God's will is much more than that.

I was privileged to be able to read the Bible to my grandpa who is battling cancer. As I was driving to his house, I heard on the radio 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. I decided that verse would be the one that I would share with my grandpa later that day. As I read it to him, we discussed what each verse was saying....and then it hit me....God's will is not about being something or going somewhere all the also is about what 1 Thessalonians says: Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. What a new challenge and mindset for me!

I joined MOPS this fall and it has been a huge blessing! I recommend it to any mom who is looking for encouragement and support in being a mom, wife, friend, and child of God.

When you join MOPS you get many is a book. I started to read this book and in it were suggestions on how to invest in yourself. As a mother sometimes you feel like you do nothing for yourself cause it's always about dad and baby. Reading this book gave me some ideas of how to do things for me and helped me realize that I do already some of these things. Here are some examples:

*girls night
*gym time with childcare
*hot showers
*bubble bath
*hair appointments
*Bible study
*Kids to bed by 8
*daily devotionals
*waking up an hour before kids
*surfing the web
*book clubs
*pedicure and manicure

I hope as you read this post you get ideas of more things to do to invest in yourself and also help realize you already have done some of the things listed.

To invest in yourself helps you, your husband, and your child! It's not a bad thing to do, it's a good thing!

so excited

I am so excited to take Blake to the pumpkin farm this year. I grew up going to the same one every year, when I got married, Jason and I went there too. Last year for the first time Blake was able to have the same experience that I had when I was young. As October has approached, I am afraid with our busy schedule we won't find a Saturday or Sunday in which we have free and then on top of it one with good weather as well. I am crossing my fingers we could be blessed with both!
