A little while ago, she asked me to come up with something simple she could pass out to each child in Primary for their birthday – a coupon that they could redeem with the Bishop for a birthday treat.I searched online for one I could just e-mail her, but found many of the designs to be busy, too involved, or the wrong size/shape.
She is the smallest, most soft spoken but powerfully spoken woman. Her soft words of Momma wisdom filled with peace, faith and love just filled every space in my heart with joy and true hope. Finally, a singer a tiny woman with a powerhouse voice! You can't help but jump out of your seat and lift your soul in praise! That will definitely allow this year to be my year of !
I was at peace to know that amidst the messes of our lives, and the chaos of our homes, the loud children and hustle and bustle of every day life; there is silence in Jesus. She is also a Momma , her compassion and kind heart shines through her voice and performances. We are Blessed, that she decided to share her voice...
We were now; Wives, Momma's or future Momma's, and life had taught us a thing or two.
A great night to head out with girlfriends in the Houston area to praise, worship and pray. This year I went with a girlfriend who I grew up with, , we stopped seeing each other from about the ages of 13/14 until we were about 26/27 years old. A long gap but when we saw each other as adults it was as if our childhood hadn't passed us by.
—but a couple of kind relatives on Sean's side had been asking, so I figured, if nothing else, it was a way to get my thoughts in order and make a list of things for that we'll eventually need to acquire.) We live in a pretty small house and I don't want a ton of extra stuff—plus, if there's one piece of advice I've read over and over again, it's to buy only the basics and wait until the baby arrives to get the rest (weird as it seems to me now, I do realize that Amazon will still be operating my due date)—but it was still helpful to me to research (and research and research and research) some of the bigger purchases, and to jot down some of the smaller things I hadn't even realized I'd need () Since you have all given me such wonderful advice over the past few months—thanks to your comments, I am now a) buying a carseat and stroller frame instead of an actual stroller, b) investing in the Fisher Price Rock n' Play sleeper, which is apparently made of straight-up miracles, c) putting the baby in our room at first for easier middle-of-the-night access, and d) slightly addicted to the Baby Bargains book for my aforementioned research—I thought I'd ask you for one final favor as I slowly go about accumulating the flotsam and jetsam of the infant years.
Despite my friend Court's sage advice that "all you need is a bed and boobs"—I feel like I should get this tattooed or embroidered somewhere—the first-timer, pre-planner, can't-leave-the-house-until-I've-checked-three-times-that-the-stove-is-off arrangment-maker in me needs to know that I've struck the perfect balance between having the essentials and not having so many essentials that I'm in danger of turning into a one-woman episode of don't want to buy anything I don't need and then have to to go through the complicated rigmarole of returning it while covered in baby spit-up and operating on two hours of sleep.
Who knows what would have happened had we stayed friends during our teenage years but I do know that as adults, I don't plan on letting the years gap, ever again. for the next almost 3 hours God was in that room and in my heart as a renewal of my Faith and Love for Him!
God was right in bringing us back together as adults; we appreciate each other, accept one another and bring new light into each other lives.
I have to get off downtown when the bus is its most crowded, so I always sit in the same seat right across from the back door so I can beat a hasty exit through the morning throngs.
When I got on the bus this morning, the bus driver wasn’t the driver I’d had yesterday.
No matter what we have been through, where we think we will go, God loves us all the same.
