Reagannn Reagannnnnnn

Some of you know my daughters first bad dream consisted of the bath tub calling her name. Well i got her to repeat her little dream (BIG dream to her) on video. I took a picture of her sleeping and used a bath tub SVG that was sent to me from Nance in the SCALHints yahoo group. Thanks again Nance! Her Movie CD is hidden behind her picture. Hope you all get a laugh out of this!

My Grandpa

This is my Grandpa I have asked prayers for. He is almost 86 and has been sick and in the hospital since last week. I was able to go over today with my sons and visit him for a while at the hospital. The more people that came in the higher his spirits got and his eyes lit up and he was his self. Please keep praying for him He has surgery on his back Thursday. I of course will be there then! We are also planning on spending Easter evening with him.

lets pick some flowers!

Today it got up to 71 outside! We stayed out there for 5 hours!!! Reagan got to picking flowers and decided it would be a good idea to get Ginger to smell them.

There is a little story behind Ginger and Reagan's relationship. Ginger actually bit Reagan 2 times in the past. I took her, ok dragged her into the dog pound cause NO dog is going to bite my kids. Well all was ok I was signing the papers and I of course had to ask the question what will you do with her? He told me he would put her down. Ya ok I also can NOT put a dog to sleep that's in good health! She pranced her way back out to my car! We had a talk in the parking lot! She turns her head away from Reagan like nope not gonna happen! I really think this dog knows! And Reagan just loves her to pieces! ;)

Week 9 Breaking free

This week deals with a steadfast mind and freedoms from strongholds. Day two this week is where I got pulled in. It talks about tearing down high places. When I thought of the high places I thought about the buildings where they used to worship idols. In part that's true but according to Beth Moores breaking free study there is more to it! Our strong holds she says affect our behaviors. These are things that are obvious to us correct? Did you though realize these strongholds are also idols? and by behavior I don't just mean our moods and how we act but how we worship and bond with the Lord! Anything that keeps our mind off the Lord and on "it" is a stronghold/idol. She states if we don't cast these things down they will sooner or later cast us down. We can tear down our strongholds with the mighty power of God, or they will eventually tear us down. Here is one of her personal stories. She says "I'll never forget realizing that a person I felt I couldn't forgive had become an idol to me through my unforgiveness."

WOW give that some serious though! Remember me telling you all about my sister in law? Well it seems just as I am no longer lingering on the situation something happens to bring it all back in my face again. I still have not heard from her. But her 2 daughters have contacted me on the SAME day. One wanting advice about a laptop and the other inviting us for Easter. My youngest niece is going to prom and asked me to do her pictures. I am a Photographer for those of you who don't know. I told her I couldn't cause her uncle was working. All of a sudden they are being super nice! So it kind of irritates me cause I know why they are doing this. I am telling you this because I have let this situation become a IDOL!!!!!!!! I have dwelled on the situation so much I have let it keep me from Gods word and his promise to take care of and bring down my enemies! And yes folks family can be a enemy and use us just as mush as outsiders!

Beth states about her own story "Satan seized my imaginations until the whole situation stole my focus and therefore became idolatrious to me"

HA on Satan he picked the wrong week to bring this situation back to me! I see through it clearly!

So this week we are to
1 Recognize those things keeping us captive
2. Stand in agreement with God 1John 1:9 "if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
3. Tear down the Lies Once we recognize the strong holds,agree with god and confess we can then begin to see the lies.
4. Put up the truth "Our Captive has escaped the prison of controlling thoughts and is very close to controlling them instead. TRUTH is the only way out!

Some strongholds she mentions that i would of never viewed as strongholds until given thought to are loving your children too much, becoming obsessed with them, adoration and idolatry then the mother has constructed a stronghold.

another is morning a death too long. It will put a wedge between us and God if we are consumed with the loss and bitterness that has eclipsed comfort and healing.

Do you have strong holds that you didn't realize were? Man i do ;o(

Sometimes you just have to laugh!

Even when something should not be funny. My baby girl is two and a half. She had her first nightmare last night! I went in to get her up this morning and she tells me mama the bath tub was calling me. Saying Reagannnnnn Reagannnnnnnnn it scared me! I wish so bad you all could her her saying this. Just thinking about it makes me want to crack up laughing! On and off all day today she has told me this and then had to tell her maw maw this evening! It honest to goodness scared her LOL! While she was telling my mom I was dying laughing in the background! my mom wished some not so nice dreams on me tonight! I have yet to figure out how I am going to get her in the tub this evening! When her brother went to take his bath she heard the water going and took off running and retold me the story. Shes so cute and I love her so much. I wish i could bottle this time! With my twins life was a blur. it was non stop go and i didn't get to enjoy the time like I have with Reagan. As well she is my last baby so i am going to cherish and laugh at all these things! Any ideas on how to preserve this memory for her? I would love for her to know what her first nightmare was! Odd cause playing in the bath tub is one of her favorite things to do! Anyhow PLEASE give me some ideas! Hugs to you all! Hope your finding many blessings this weekend!

Disney on Ice

Yesterday was a memory that will last a long time. And once I scrapbook it hopefully a life time! My dad got these tickets for me and the kids along with free parking(you'll understand why I tell you about the parking here in a second lol) The kids were amazed! I really didn't think the boys would care too much but they loved it! Reagan was standing up when Mickey Mouse came out and oh my that baby started jumping up and down and screaming mick mose (how she said it) it made my heart jump with joy! With my Bipolar its really hard for me to drive long distances and not have panic attacks and esp down town St. Louis UGG then to find out they had a huge parade yesterday for St. Patrick day! There was around 3000 people down there! So ya it was not pretty there for a little bit! But it was all so worth it! Well the show was over and I am all excited about my pictures thinking about scrapbooking them and driving down the highway and realize the parking ticket is on the window and getting ready to blow off! So I roll down the window, take off my belt and lean out the window to grab that ticket! Nick says oh Lord I'm gonna die today! Now tell me do I get true scrapbooker of the year award???? HAHAHA Its been a blessed weekend!!!!!

Happy Saturday

There wont be anything from me this weekend. Today i told my boys they were going to help me deep clean the house and this afternoon we are leaving to head to downtown St. Louis to see Disney on ice. The only way i could get Reagan in bed last night was asking her if she wanted to go see Mickey mouse when she woke up? Now how to pass all these hours before she can actually SEE him haha. This tomorrow we will be in Church. Monday I am not so sure about. My mom is talking about coming over so we can go for a walk. Here I go being too open with you all! I am up to 197lbs and my mom does not directly say anything but tells me about different food that are healthy and offers to go on walks with me. This is different then when I was a kid so I am thankful how she is trying to help. How about you all? Any of you struggling with a weight problem? Or have struggled and have some advice? I would love to hear it! And i would love to help support you if you too are going down this road! Until later you all have a very BLESSED and safe weekend!

Do you ever just feel BLAH!!!!????!!!!!

Here lately I don't know what my issue is. I am sleeping 13-14 hours a day! I am not depressed. I am honestly bi polar. I have cut my meds back to see if that's it to find no change. Usually I would get into a manic state and that's not even happening. Which honestly would be kind of nice right now! I know not good playing with medications but 13-14 hours a day! I asked my husband if I am snoring a lot at night maybe sleep apenia? Maybe weight? Maybe not smoking for almost a month? Maybe Maybe Maybe??? I keep meaning to call the doctor but find myself back in bed and before I know it its too late. Anyhow I just wanted to let you all know why your not see any files. I really need to find out whats going on with my health but will also try to so get out some files to you! Easter is almost here and we need some things don't we? So hopefully in the next couple days I can get something up for you all! Until then please keep me in your prayers to find some strength and energy! Gods blessings and unfailing love to each of you!
