I am so thankful.

I am a day behind on Multitude Mondays this week. Yesterday was Chris's birthday so I tried my best to make it a good day for him.  He actually said it was his favorite birthday ever!!!!!!

1. thankful for Christopher.  I really do have a wonderful husband.  We may not agree at times, but he is a good man!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He takes care of me and his kids.

2.  Natalie cutting her own hair on Sunday night.  We got it fixed (kind of) at the beauty parlor Monday.  She loved going and they actually fixed her hair.

3. i-Phone--I never ever thought I would own an apple product but I really do love this new phone.  Chris kinda talked me into it as he needed a notebook pad for school work. 

4. Start of new healthy eating plan.  Lost 1.5lbs since Sunday!!!

5.  A few good hours of NON fibro time last week.  THANK YOU LORD!!!!!!!!!!!! I put that time to good use too:

before and after:

Paint party!!!!!!!!!!!

from this:
to this:

6. Nathan jumping in Pool all alone:

7. My sweet sweet Devin.  This boy has the silliest, sweetest heart ever.

8. Working at Church Saturday making boxes of food from food bank to hand out.  This was a very neat thing to do.  I was so proud also of Shawn and Devin.  If you know them you know how extremely lazy they are.  They were hustling and very happy to be working. We will definitely be volunteering again next month.

9.  Forgiveness

10.  LOVE this verse:  Galatians 6: 4-5 Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.

My God is an AWESOME GOD!!!!!!!!

Multitude Mondays

I am so thankful to have Jesus's spirit in my heart.  I would be lost without the ability to pray to him any time of day or night.  I heard the quote the other day on the XM channel "the message": Dont tell God about your mountain, telll your mountain about your GOD!!!!!!!!!  God is the biggest and the best!!!!!!!!!!  And he is on my side.

I am so thankful for:
the teens at church Sunday doing worship service.  They are amazing.  It is so neat to see teenagers love Jesus so much.  They touch my heart every time they preform. They have a fine arts group that made it to the national competition level!!!!!

natalies gentle hugs

the few moments that fibro does go away and I feel slightly normal

shelley--she is so gentle and caring whenever I go get a hot stone massage.  She really does care about her patients.

the ability to forgive others. 

my husband who is the biggest kid ever

shawns party was so much fun.  Thank you God for giving me such a wonderful son.  This morning he was very angry before school for unknown reasons and when I dropped him at school he said "mama we need to talk to Jesus so I don't mess up today." WOW.  He loves Jesus so much and it is amazing how Shawn is learning to stop and pray and lean on Father whenever he is getting upset. (he has cerebral dysrythmia, bipolar, and adhd.)

teaching a 3rd successful coupon class.  I love talking about my hobby.

the people I have met with Fibro/CFS.  Janet, Bonnie (farmgirl on WUC), Lisa (missy64 on WUC),  Rachel (craftymama on WUC). and the many other people i have met that offer encouragement.  It is tough to live life with Fibro and people don't really understand that unless they have it themselves.

,41 OVERAGE on Hungry Jack pancake Mix at Commissary

Hungry Jack single batch mix .59
use 1/1 from 5/22RP=.41 overage each

deal idea:
buy 20 hungry jack single batch=11.80
plus surcharge 5%=12.39
plus 3.45 (cost of qs for me on ebay)=$15.84
Use $20 in qs=4.16 overage for me.
if you get qs thru friends/ect for free then you would have 7.61 overage on 20.

Overage on Airwick at Commissary

Air wick I motions are on sale for 2.99

Multitude Monday

 I am so thankful for:

1. Heritage Church--Pastor Ron is the best!!!!Yesterday he preached about the rapture and judgment day.  It is a subject that most Pastors never touch on. What you don't think about is that you will be stripped down.   Everything will be exposed.  Nothing will be "sugar coated".  No excuses allowed./nothing will be hidden. No favoritism.  He will look at us with impartial eyes. Your words will be revealed. Words spoken in anger/slander/make fun of will all be there. Slang/careless words (oh my gosh or oh my g--. heck. darn. ect).  Good words spoken with the wrong heart will be put on the fire (hypocrytes: "i hope you feel better" or "bless their heart" or "i will keep you in my prayers" ) matt 12:36-37  Things we do without spiritual value (job/school/chores/hobby/tv/games) have no value in Gods eyes. You will be rewarded for your work done on earth.

2. prayer

3. family pictures taken for the church directory. Can't wait to see how they turned out. Natalie would not smile.
4. self-control
5. Shawns caring heart.  He really does have a tender heart when someone is not feeling well.
6. Devin's smile.  He is so silly.  He always makes me laugh.
7. Natalie's soft sweet hugs.  I love when she hugs me because she is so gentle.
8. Nathans ability to lighten up a room.  He has the best personality.
