The ding dang devil is sitting on my shoulder and telling me to dwell; to sit in my spinny chair and think about how tough it is to be me and be sad that my house is so quiet this morning.

This morning I struggle with a big case of [need to forgive], I have already conversed with God on my issue with forgiveness this morning quite a few times, it is so hard to do with the little puke sitting there meandering near me telling me to do the worldly thing. BUT I WANT TO DO THE GODLY THING, SO LEAVE ME ALONE!

In a silly analogy I shared with God after one of my prayer sessions this morning, I told him, “I feel like a bank teller, I know all the information and I see all the big money come past me, in and out, all day long. I hold the best information, but I am still only paid minimum wage and I cannot share the intell with anybody but my Boss.” It is just not fair, but who told us life would be fair? Surely, it wasn’t the guy who said “in this life you will have trouble.”

I will not allow my joy to be taken away today, I know I am doing my best as a supportive wife and stepmom. I will continue to pray for the ability to forgive today, it is very important, we are to be friends to our enemies and that is only complete with forgiveness. If you get a moment to pray for me today, it would be greatly appreciated and you let me know what I can pray for you!

With LOVE!

At dinner with family last night, the option of eBooks came up. I’ve never really thought about it before because I really like the smell of a fresh turned paper page, but I’ll try (most) anything if it’s recommended.

I quickly researched my favorite online book store and found they have some pretty decent books available in e-format.

  • Motorcycles, Sushi & One Strange Book
  • Pilgrim’s Progress
  • Catwalk
  • The City of God

I see you have not taken advantage of this great offer so maybe you need our financial background as a push start?

Yes, I worked for the Dave Ramsey program with Aggie Green, ELP Houston area, Advanced Financial Services, Humble, TX. Yep, I have two bachelor’s degrees, Finance and Economics. Yes, my husband has a bachelor’s degree in Business Management. But, how did we get to where we are right now? With the help of my dad (for me), the government and FAFSA, we still (unfortunately) have school debt to pay off. [Insert federal government aid blah blah here – let’s not go there].

We are not perfect, even though you thought we were. We have our ducks in a row to be paid off, but only by the love, and ultimate grace, of God will we actually get it complete in the time we discussed with Him.

Join us this season as we grow in financial sense and financial cents!

We love you!

This weekend was real fun, for the most part. I went for a nice jog, did yard work with my husband, went shopping, saw my muffin and much much more. Lets just consider these random tidbits of the two days God gave us.

Random #1 – I went for a jog. I woke up at 6am (on a SATURDAY!) and could not get back to sleep. I contemplated getting up and going for a run, setting out the water and blah blah blah, but I did not and tried to force myself asleep. It tried for a few but then I got to the point where I was thinking “God, I just want to sleep for another hour, then I will get up.” So my husband rolls over and somehow gets his pillow in just the right position to come up and BOP me in the schnoz, “GOD, OK FINE I’LL GET UP! You don’t have to be so violent.” So I got up and started my day with a 3 mile joggeroo.

Random #2 – Yard Worked! I mow. Brent edges and weed-eats. We are a great team in the yard work area for sure; we were done in 30 minutes MAX. We moved into our house two years ago July and had ding dang crepe myrtles cut down two years ago September from in front of our house. We still have a stump from one of the crepe myrtles plaguing the right side of our garage, well I decided I had had enough and SheWomaned the stump out of the ground (most of it at least). The roots were all through some bricks and the grass, good thing I ended up mulching a lot of dirt in the process, the grass  around the stump is going to need it to grow back now. So I ran 3 miles after getting God smacked in the face by a pillow and now I just SheWomaned a (dead) tree stump out of the ground.

Random #3 – We went to see Japanese Acrobats at Miller Outdoor Theater with my brother- and sister-in-law and my muffin. It was SO much fun! These kids were so talanted and bendable, I most enjoyed watching them come out in these giant hula hoop contraptions and spin around the stage like nobody’s business. I got to hold and feed and play with my little muffin too. She is adorable and loves her Auntie and Uncle, we know how to make her smile, and put her to sleep. My brother-in-law says she is lovey with us because she is trying to sucker us into having her a cousin to play with. I see. Getting out of the zoo parking lot after this fantastic show was a nightmare! If you went left you just waited in a long line to get out onto main and go left. If you went right you waited in a long line for an hour to go right on Main and fight the Houston Texan’s traffic just leaving at the SAME time. Oh no, BIL, SIL and muffin went right. They didn’t get home until 12:30am, when we were just leaving GingerMan.

Random #4 - GingerMan - This place is so cool because they have beers from around the world coming out of taps all down the left side of the bar. Also, it is really cool because really suave Rice U students go there and talk about great ideas that we just don’t hear very often. So we gathered our worldly beverage and headed to the back porch to converse and eavesdrop. We saw one girl take her guy up and try to dance with him and do some swirly-girly moves, I told Brent, “This is not going to end well and one of these goobs is going to fall in our lap.” Luckily, they stopped and dizzily sat with their group, no casualties, thank goodness! That is, until we got to our car to go home. Dead… Battery… so here we are, parked at Talbot’s looking for somebody who isn’t two sheets and can give us a little hand. One nice gentleman on a Honda motorcycle came up and asked if we were OK, that was nice of him, even though he could not jump us with the small engine of a bike. About 10 minutes later another guy comes up and pulls his Camry up on the curb just to get the cables to reach to give us a jump, you are the bomb diggity man! Off to bed we go at 1am!

Random #5 – Sunday is a day of rest and football – I wake up at 6am… again… I told Brent when we got home I had planned on running this morning even though we got home so late. Not happening, SO tired! I slept until 7 am and made biscuit breakfast, watered the grass and cut, sort and filed my coups. Went to the church house to listen to lovely Lance, he is SUCH a great teacher and speaker, his enthusiasm for sharing God’s word is unmatched in my book. Made lunch with my babe husband, got a new FREE battery for my car, went to my grandma’s to drop off some goods for my cousin, and went to the grocery store (saved 59%). Brent had fantasy football draft at the house tonight, 5 guys, football, spaghetti, snacks and drinks, I don’t remember the last time the house was SO quite with so many guys in attendance. They even shushed me once when I was watching America’s Funniest Video’s, the audacity! Such an easy day that God has given us to be with friends and family and enjoy their company.
