I am blessed to work with a very Godly women who loaned me Beth Moore's book Praying God's Word. It talks a lot about praying for freedom against strongholds in our lives. I won't go into to much detail just yet, but I have been so guilty here lately of allowing Satan to reek havoc on a particular area of my life...sleep. Babies are babies, I understand that. However, I am convinced more than ever that Satan is using that as a venue to steal my joy, and rob my peace. And you know what? I have let him. Seriously?!!

It's time for me to wake up and smell the roses (although I am already awake most of the time...ha!)

Today as I read, the Lord sent me a LOUD and clear message, FREEDOM. In fact, here are some verses from my quite time today.

"It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by the yoke of slavery." -Galatians 5:1

"But this happened that we might rely not on ourselves, but on God who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such deadly peril and he will deliver us. On him we set our hope that he will continue to deliver us as you help us by your prayers."

"Then you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free." - John 8:32 "I will walk about in freedom for I have sought out your precepts" - Psalm 119:45

Ya'll I didn't use a concordance or purposely look them up. They were there on the page of the book that God placed in my life for such a time as this!! They jumped out at me as the Holy Spirit spoke. . .I am a messed up sinner BUT I am redeemed and on my way to freedom!!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
