Really....Where does she come up with this stuff??

"The only thing that I know is love and love is hope and hope is faith and faith is rithisnis (righteousness) I Love you and you love me."
The above was written in a card from my seven year old daughter to me. I don't know where she's getting these things, but it sure is cute!

MHR Friday!! It's the little things.

Love isn't just in the extravagant, but it's also in the little things of life.

Things such as....

The phone call in the middle of the afternoon to say, "I was thinking about you. How's your day going?"

When he grabs my hand when we're walking through the mall.

When he'll do a load or 2 of laundry on a Saturday.

When he tells the kids, "I Love Your Momma!" And they giggle and roll their eyes and say..."We know."

When he picks up his towels after a shower.

When he'll take both kids to the grocery to give me some mommy time.

From the mouth of babes!

Sometimes I'm amazed at the truth or the relevance behind a phrase that my children come up with. Just last evening we were trying to get ready for church, and clean up from dinner when Alyssa is chasing me around the house asking me for money to put in the offering for Jr. church. I'm all but ignoring her...putting her off...telling her, "Alyssa, go brush your hair." Then from her intelligent, wise beyond her years mind, she says, "Mom, what's more important, your looks or giving money to God?" "Ouch!" Needless to say, she got some offering.

No Matter Who wins the election!

I received this in my email and found it quite comforting.

1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praises to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross for you.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost if they turn to Him.

O.K.I have a ton cleaning, and other stuff to do, and it's raining, but I have a surprisingly positive outlook. I'm having a Premier Jewelry Party Thursday, and I've gotta think of something to fix ....any suggestions? I was thinking about making some pumpkin bread, and maybe some choc chip cheese ball...I don't know....ugh, decisions.
Anywho, so I took Alyssa to a Girl Scout meeting last night thinking it was an established troop, WRONG! They're trying to start a new troop. If we start this troop, we're gonna combine Daisies with the Brownie Girl Scouts which is K-4th or 5th grade, because there aren't enough girls to do just Daisies or just Brownie Girl Scouts. I hope they decide to do it, and of course they were asking all the parents last night who would want to be a leader....and we were all looking at each other like, not I. I told 'em I didn't mind to help, but I'm not committing myself to another thing. Which, if they do form the group I'll help out as much as I can, I just didn't want that title of being a Leader over my head.
Well, I'm gonna scoot for now. I may return later. In the meantime, if you all have any good, quick recipes please send them my way....Thank You!! Love ya.

Sweet Lil' voice

It's 9:08pm and my daughter is up 38 minutes past her bedtime. She's in bed, but she's hosting her own Songfest 2008. With her favorites like, On top of Ol'Smoky....Itsy Bitsy Spider....Swing Low, Sweet Chariot....and last, but not least....Amazing Grace. Normally I'd firmly tell her to hush and to to sleep, but there was something so sweet about hearing her sing "Amazing Grace" and as she creshendoed into the big ending..... "was blind but now I seeeeeeeeee--(up an octive) eeee" I had to chuckle. But then I thought, does she really know or understand what she's singing about? Amazing Grace. How sweet the sound. That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I'm found. Was blind but now I see. Grace. Unmerited favor. I didn't deserve it. But before He laid the foundations of this world he had it all planned. And I...You, would be a part of that plan, I guess that's what makes it so Amazing. He loves us so much that He gave His one and only Son. Can you name one person that you would give your child's life for? Me neither. But God did. He had a whole list of people. And You and I were on it. Well, it's 9:23pm and Miss Alyssa has sung her little self to sleep.

God is Good!

All Pro Dads

Saturday my hubby took the kids to an All Pro Dads event at Bengals field near Cincinnati. They had such a good time.

Bryan, Tre', and Alyssa with Anthony Munoz (he's huge!)

The kids running drills
Bryan with Jim Breech ( I think that's Jim Breech) Alyssa
Tre' practicing his throw
They got to see some of the players boarding their bus leaving to go to Dallas for their big game against the Cowboys. Unfortunately, they lost. =o(

I believe this is Chris Henry, and Chris Johnson.
