This Man I Know

There's a man I know.
A man I have never met in person, but know wholeheartedly.
This is a man who was born into a family so poor.
A man, who's mother and father, so faithful.
This man lived a very hard life. But a purpose-filled life.

Perfection, Love, Honesty, Purity.
This man did what no one could do.
This man grew up spreading the Word of God.
He spoke to everyone, not just the "good".
He loved the worst of the worst.

This man had friends, 12 good friends to be exact.
This man was betrayed by one.
Much like we may be betrayed today.

This man, no matter the price he paid and who didn't agree with him,
still preached the Word.

Because of this man, and his Honor to the Lord, his life was taken.
His life ended at such a young age.
His life ended still loving, even those that killed him.
His life ended with followers.
His life was hard.

This man is still Alive today.
This man is Jesus.

I speak a lot about the Bible. I speak a lot about God.
Sin needs to be taken away. A new life needs to start.
To do that you need to accept the Lord and Savior in your heart.
Wash away the old, start anew.

No one will ever be perfect. That is why Jesus died for us on that cross.
We sin.
That's life.
But we are forgiven.


There is Heaven.
There is a Hell.

I love the Lord. Without Him, my kids would not be here, I would not have the life I do.

I trust you Lord, and I love you.

Uh Oh!!

Ren woke up this morning with a sore throat. Great. She was looking for throat losanges in the house but didn't have any because of Hunter having strep and taking them all.
Please no strep for her too!!
I am calling tomorrow to set up a re-check appointment for Hunter for Friday to make sure he is rid of the strep cooties but may be making an appoinment for Ren, to get her checked. I'm going to give it until tomorrow morning to see how she is doing.
Hunter is not going to be a happy camper when he comes to realize where we are taking him on Friday. It's just another one of those very dreaded Dr's visits because of how he acts.
Hunter has been feeling better except for this morning there were the belly pains again...not just in him but Ren as well. I swear, one thing hits one kid and then it's just a matter of time for the other one. These kids are like two peas in a pod.
Questions I ask myself then:
Do they need to go poo?
Are they hungry?
So, I had and made sure they both did what they needed to do. Ren was straining, not good. I hate to see her go into a corner and it just takes everything out of her to go sometimes. Sometimes, it even makes her cry. Hunter had no problems though. So, I went ahead and gave them an extra dose of lax. Hoping for it to work.
Bellies still hurt.
I feed them. I feed them good!!! After breakfast, I ask them if their bellies and throats still hurt. Their reply, "Yes." Aaaargh.
So they are due one more dose of lax and I'm going to make it a good one. Praying Rens throat is better after she wakes from naps and both their bellies are better.
It's that guessing game that I hate on trying to figure out and weed out what can possibly be going on. Oh well. I will figure it out sooner or later. Just praying that Ren doesn't have strep but I honestly wouldn't doubt it if she did.

Cystic Fibrosis 65 Roses

Although this video brought tears to my eyes as I was watching, I KNOW for a fact that my Good Lord and Savior will bring us a cure for this disease. I have no doubt in my mind. I post these videos to bring awareness as to what Cystic Fibrosis is and what we go through on a daily basis. Help us find a cure for CF. Please go to CFF.Org and donate anything you can to go to finding a cure for the thousands of innocent children and adults suffering from this disease. Including my two children.

Thank You Lord!

So this is how much my kiddos love church. On Monday, "Mommy when do we go to church?" " 6 days dear." Tuesday, "Mommy when do we go to church?" "5 days dear." On and on.
This morning..."Mommy when do we go to church?" "Today!!" The kiddos were so very happy to be going to church. I can't even begin to explain how happy that makes me!
Other than church, nothing really eventful happened today.
We got home from church and daddy fed the kiddos lunch while I was on the phone with my mom double checking on how to make a turkey--low carb style.
Thanks mom!! :)
Making new foods scare me. A little intimidating. I think more so now, that we spend so much money on meats because of the low carb diet Brandon and I are on. I don't want to mess it up.
So, I got the turkey done. YAY!! We all actually laid down this afternoon for some afternoon snoozes and by the time we got up from naps, the turkey was smelling OH SO GOOD!!!
The meat was falling off the bone and was so delicious. I have to pat myself on the back this time. Brandon said that it tasted better than my Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey I made last year. I think that's good, right?
So tonight, just kicking back and going to play a board game with the kiddos until bedtime. I can't believe that tomorrow if Monday already. Why does it seem like the weekends are going by faster and faster?
All in all, it was a wonderful day.
