Yeah it is Friday!! Well, sad news, Hunter didn't make the team; however, he starts association ball next saturday. He was very upset about not making the school team. I am glad he showed some heart. I told him he shouldn't like losing and go out there next time and try again. He said he was. He said he was looking forward to playing anyways. Tal still has today to go through. Barry has a lot of confidence in her making the team. She is absolutely beside herself right now with excitement.
I am glad today is friday!! Have a great weekend!! Remember Romans 8:26

Tal and Hunter

I also wanted to post about Tal and Hunter trying out for their school's softball and baseball team. They both are very excited. Try outs started on Tuesday and will be over for Hunter today and Tal tomorrow. There were about 35-40 boys trying out and Hunter said it would be hard to make the team. JT helped him get some stuff together last night. He was so excited when he got home. JT had him looking like he was a baseball star by the time we left their house. Tal is really confident about the team. They have been throwing and doing things with Barry and each other in the evening. These next couple of days are going to be interesting. Tal does have something else in the works if she doesn't make it. She is going to do a drama competition. SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE!!!!!!!! LOL!!!! I am glad she has a back up plan. She doesn't like to be idle. Hunter on the other hand said if he doesn't make the school team he wants to play for Amelia's rec team. That is comparison to CLL. He really needs this outlet. Please keep them both in your prayers. I would love to see them both make it. They usually don't take sixth graders for the baseball team. Hunter was going out there today and show the coach he could hit left handed and right handed. He told my sister last night he was ampidextrious. LOL...made me chuckle on the inside.
Will post what happens. Remember Romans 8:26

Having fun with the nieces!!!

The past couple of Wednesday nights, I have been picking Blayne and Ellie up. We meet Nana at "Chicken fil a" (as Ellie calls it) and then head to the dollar store. They are so fun and I love being with them. I look forward to seeing them during my week. They are definitely a highlight. Thanks JT and Janie for sharing them with me. Here is a picture from this week. Have a great Thursday and remember Romans 8:26.

I was just looking back at over the year of post. WOW so many things have happened. I had a niece born in Dec of 2007 and a nephew born in March of 2008. God has weeded our "church garden". He is really working. He is bringing members back to our church. He has given me another year with my husband, children, and family. I have so much to be thankful for. It is great to read back on what God has done. Take the time to reflect on just how good God has been!!!!
Happy Monday!! Remember Romans 8:26

Happy Friday!!! My friend sent this to me. I liked so I thought I would share.
Rules from God for 2009
1. Wake Up !! Decide to have a good day.
"Today is the day the Lord hath made ; let us rejoice and be glad in it" Psalms 118:24
2. Dress Up !! The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart."
I Samuel 16:7
3. Shut Up!! Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. "He who guards his lips guards his soul." Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!... For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.. "Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a har vest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good..." Galatians 6:9-10
5. Look Up !!... To the Lord.
"I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!... For something higher. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, And He will direct your path."
Proverbs 3:5-6
7. Lift Up !!... Your Prayers.
"Do not worry about anything;
Phili ppians 4:6

God answers prayer.

I am amazed how WE praise God on His timing when it works to our benefit. My cousin Pam, was telling us last night about a mother who lost her son. She chose to look at it that God chose her son. She chooses to look at God's timing as being on time. I am not sure I could look at it that way. We, I, look at God's timing being on time, when it works to my benefit. I really need to work on God's timing is ALWAYS on time in time every time!!!
Have a great Thursday!! Remember Romans 8:26

We finally got some snow. Granted it was not a bunch; however, my children did have a two hour delay. It was beautiful. Glad it is not really bad out on the roads. Here are a couple of pictures. Have a great Tuesday. Remember Romans 8:26.
