I Got The Message!!

OK, my life is not as happy go lucky as I like to let on. This past weekend was proof of that. I did learn something though. If God wants to give you a message boy, does He. This is a public acknowledgment to say, I Got IT !!

Last weekend I bought me a new book to sit on my nightstand. I like to read a little before I go to sleep. It seems to put me into a more peaceful state of mind and I sleep better. I have read my usual book, Bedside Book of Angels, about 20 times and could probably even read it backwards while standing on my head. Kevin and I were out running when I spotted the book, Bedside Blessings. I don't like to spend so much on a book, $14.00, when I know I can get them second hand but this time something said just buy it, so I did. The book is set up so you can read a page every night for a year. Since I did not buy it until February I figured I should read a couple a pages a night to get caught up.

My husband and I got into a huge fight the following night. I was so mad that I think the whole neighborhood heard me screaming. I was finally fed up with everything and told him that I thought we were looking at the big D (divorce). I finally calmed down after not speaking to him for hours. We went to bed and I pulled out my little book. I had made it as far as January 15 in the book.

This is what January 16 said:

Deceptive baits are set out about us each day, and they don't all come from individuals. Some of them come from a cable television channel or the Internet or a magazine or peer pressure at school or colleagues at work.

So allow me to say this very straight: The greatest gift you can give to your marriage partner is your purity, your fidelity. The greatest character trait you can provide your spouse and your family is moral and ethical self-control. Stand firm my friend. Refuse to yield.

Prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers. James 1:22

The day after the big fight I went back to the same store and purchased another book that jumped out at me. I like to read stories about Angels so I just had to get it. I finally had some time later on that day to start reading it. I read through the introduction and finally came to the first story. The title of the first story was Be Calm, I dropped the book. It is safe to say I got the point.

The message I got:

Stand your ground if you believe that you are correct. You can make your point with out all the drama. Keep your big mouth shut and show restraint. If you want your family to discuss problems like adults then maybe you need to act like one yourself. Instead of just listening to the word of God try applying in your life.

February :) WoW!

February 1, 2008

The month has started out to be very fun. On the very first day I went to a Birthday Party for Kelcey. Kelcey is such a sweet little girl. Kelcey is the daughter of Stacy of My Thoughts. Kelcey had a bowling party and I just had to bowl. I even picked a pink ball.

Today was my seventh year anniversary. Kevin and I have been together for 15 years but only married for 7. This is us at 2 years. This is us at 7 years. This is us Now!

To celebrate I did something I have never done before in my whole life. My friends Beth, Stacy, Tiffany and I went to get our nails done. I like the nails accept that I have a hard time typing. The good thing is I can scrub the floor and they still look good.

February 11, 2008

Today Beth and I heard that the Wabash River was high. We decided to go check it out. It was almost to the sidewalk. These are the steps that led down to a dock where Beth, my family and friends and I would look at the river. The dock is gone now.This is Beth standing on the steps. I have never in my whole life ever seen the river this high.

Today was Valentines Day. Stacy came over to dye my hair. My roots were showing so it needed to be done. I had to be goofy and dance around in a towel. Aren't I sexy? HE HE HE HE HE The bad side of it all is that my hair turned too blonde. The next day Stacy came over and dyed it a very nice light brown.My wonderful Hubby bought me this beautiful silver set for Valentines Day. I told him that he did not need to get me anything. He had let me buy a lot of clothes the day before. We went to get dinner and then we ran to get him a new floor jack, that was my gift to him. It was a very nice Valentines Day.

Today my friends Beth and Tiffany wanted to go for a walk.Walking
Tiffany is in the military and needs to stay in shape.USA USA USA

It was a nice day so we walked the 2 miles to my son's school.
There is a track at the school so Tiffany can run a mile Runnerwhile Beth and I take a break.

We get all the way there and I am feeling pretty good so I figured while Tiff ran I would walk a lap around myself. Tiff did her mile run then we headed the 2 miles back home. I did pretty good but boy did my body hurt the next day.
I hurt in places I didn't even know I owned. OuchNext time I will remember to just do what I know I can handle.

HI Everybody!! I went out and made a smiley face in the snow. HE HE HE HE :)
