I Am Thankful #3

Tomorrow this is how old I will become. 30. I am thankful
to the Lord for seeing my through yet another year. I thank
him for my health, my strength, and right frame of mind
for the most part. LOL! I don't think that anyone functions
all the time with a full deck. LOL!

For those who do not know the story of my birth or pre-birth.
I was very close to being aborted with my mother and father
sitting the office with papers filled out and appointments made.
They told her that if she were to get pregnant again and
attempt to have the baby (me) she or both of us would die.
My mother had sever complications with my older sister and
almost died because of it. So here she was again. Well, all of a
sudden she rose up, tore up the papers, and told my father
that if God meant it for us both to die than we would die and
if he meant for us to live than we would live. From that night
foward my mother and father prayed for her and myself
every night. They never missed a night praying. My father
would read to me and show me pictures. He would also sing to
me. When the time came to have me mother told me that she
was up helping everyone else out in very little pain and that it
was that way right up until the time she had me. I came right out
with the greatest ease. Praise God! So I am here today standing
on the brink of 30. I am also here now standing on the promises
of God knowing that he will never leave us nor forsake us.

Thank you all and be blessed!

I Am Thankful #2

A GOOD LAUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They say that laughter is one of the best medicines
out there and best of all it's free!!! This was painted
on the back of someone truck and I just had take
a pic of it. It had me chuckling for a good while.
I didn't know what I was going to use the photo
for and it goes to show you nothing happens by
chance. I took it for such a time as this.
I am so thankful to God for the gift of laughter!!!

Be blessed!

I Am Thankful #1

Hello all! This is day one in my efforts to pick out the things
that I am most thankful for out of this tough year. Ofcourse
my little gifts that God has blessed me with came to mind.
Jadon is so much like daddy. BUSY and VERY SOCIAL!!!
He is super smart and bossy and has picked up a habit wanting
to chew gum thanks to our pastor and our friend Steve.
Leilani is my little cuttlebug and wants to cuddle all the time.
She is also my danger girl and has a sort of qiet busy about her.
That means I have to keep close tabs on her. LOL! She is also
a lot like me and carries pencil and paper around pretty much
everywhere she goes. My mother said that is exactly how I
was at her age.
They both LOVE MUSIC and will stop dead in their tracks to listen.
Don't try to fool either because they know the good stuff from
the bad!
I created this page with the loveliness of American Crafts
Christmas line, mini marks, and thickers. I must say that
all things American Crafts I love and can't get enough of.
I have the bad habit of wanting use everything on one page
and REALLY have to hold myself back. Even though the pic
is not a Christmas pic everything went perfect with it. Yay!
Thank you for letting me share my first day of thankfulness
with you and I will be back for round two tomorrow.
Be blessed

The Good, The Bad, and The Classic With Snow

The good,
the bad,
and the classic with snow!!!

Yes, it actually snowed pretty hard here in Vegas first on
Monday and then on Wednesday!!! Wednesday was so bad
that they actually CLOSED THE SCHOOLS DOWN!!! That
is totally unheard of here but it happened. What strange
things lurk and ofcourse it just another sign of the times for
those who know what I mean.
I know I left a lot of details out in the previous post due to
plain tiredness. I visited the strangest park here in town
called the Wetlands. They designed it specifically for certain
wildlife here in the desert. It was on the Sabbath which was
perfect. The other people who are seen is my baby sis Melissa, her
HOPEFULLY soon to be Ricardo, Steve (one of the best guys
I know and friend), and ofcourse my kiddies. We had such
a great time. Gods creations are truely wonderful.
I will be back as soon as possible with some projects and things
of that sort. Until then be blessed!

Happy 1st of December

No, it not snowing here in Vegas which would be a miracle but

we did have some fog which is just as strange here on Thanksgiving.

I pray that everyones turkey day was a blessed one.

I know that I had been gone for a while not by choice but if it happened

it was meant to be as such. We had to move two times in this past month

which was totally not fun at all and just now settling down. My husband

has also been having some serious issues in which he could use your

prayers. He is right now checked into the hospital and we don't know

exactly how long he is going to be there. It going to definately take its

toll on our finances being he is the only working at this time. Please keep

that in your prayers as well. Sorry for such a grim post but life is not

always on the ups. I want to be as real as I can be. There are trials in

in my life just like the next person but through Jesus Christ, family, and

friends we can make it. Trust me, I know it to be a very hard thing and

it is still hard. Hope in the Lord through these times is the ONLY thing

that has really kept me going. Without it I don't know where I would be.

On another note stay tuned for tons of photos and a few projects on the way.

I think that I will start feeling normal again once I get my hands on my artsy


Be blessed and I will be back soon!
