She is so great. I want to be her when I grow up. Thither is a wonderful wife, mother, friend, teacher, Thither(sister). I wouldn't know what to do without her. She has helped me thru alot of things. She has been there for me thru thick and thin.
I turned 42 yesterday. I love my age and I love who I am.
But this year my age really affected me. Why? I am feeling so old. My heart hurts, my mind is tired, my body is falling apart.
I find myself so uncontent, (is that a word?). I am sitting here wondering what I have done with my life. I hate that because I wouldn't change anything. Well except treat my body better and the ability to have babies. But if I did that aren't I second guessing God?
Is this my mid life crisis? If so it sucks.
Oh well life goes on and we just keep getting older.
Now is the time to take charge and make the most of your life. Treat yourself and others better. Love the life you have and the choices you have made.
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you"
Do you need to forgive someone? Can you forgive them? Can you face Jesus when the times comes and say I forgave all who wronged me? If you can't, what are you waiting for? Isn't today the perfect time to forgive? You may not have a tomorrow. You may not even have today.
I am sitting here as I do every year around this time wondering if I am ready for my missions trip.
Every year I go to RFKC (Royal Family Kids Camp) It's a camp for neglected and abused kids. I question myself whether I will be a good servant for the kids.
I am a Christian, not a good one, but I know who I belong to. I can't quote you bible verses, I can't pray out loud, and most of the time ok all the time I have a potty mouth. I take the easy way and probably disappoint God alot.
But I know deep down this is what I was meant to do. My calling and I believe this whole heartedly is to help kids. To help raise other peoples children. I have to believe this. Because I am not able to have children of my own. This is it. To give these children one week of fun and to show them God is with them and feels their pain.
Every Year I question this. Am I going to do more harm than good. Will I say the right thing? Will I be open to God? Will I let him in to help the kids? Am I strong enough? Will I let the past in and do harm. Not physical harm, but mental harm. If I let my past in will it effect me and how I treat the kids.
I love going to camp and I get rewarded everytime I see the children smile and play and forget their home life for the week or even for an hour. It lightens my heart. It gives me such joy. It breaks my heart.
So as you are sitting here reading my post, please pray for the children who are abused and neglected. Pray for the parents that they will get help. Pray for the foster parents. Pray for the volunteers of RFKC. Just PRAY.
As of this month there are over 6,000 children being abused in one county alone.
I know it's been awhile. You guys out there are just dying to know what I have been up to.
Well nothing really. Work. Now since I have quit my job really nothing. Actually this is my 1st full day without a job.
I have alot of plans to declutter. Reorganize. CLEAN.
Sounds like fun doesn't it? I can't wait. I love to clean. If I had the energy I would have a spotless house. I would have everything in it's place every second of every day.
Back to the real world. UGH. When you live with three guys that is just NOT going to happen. Oh well I have my dreams.
4th of July is right around the corner and can't wait. Every year for the past 5 yrs we camp out in moms back yard. Alot of food, swimming and just being with the family. Saturday we are going to have a talent night. Should be a blast. I just love my family. We have such a good time in moms back yard.
At the end of the month we have camp. So glad I get to go this year. I can't wait.
The 1st week in Aug we get to go on Vacation. Should be fun. I will get to add a couple more states. And the pictures I will get to take, to excited for words.
Doc (my dog) has changed so much from when I got him. He is so fun. He still has his moments when he shys away from us but not as often. I think he realizes we won't hurt him like his last family. Can't wait to see how he will react to the 4th. Hopefully it won't freak him out.
