God's love is unshaken!

"Though the mountains may be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my love will not be shaken nor my peace be removed, says the Lord, who shows compassion on you." Isaiah 54:10

This verse is so comforting! Human relationships can be so conditional and yet God's love is so unconditional that He says even though the most imaginable things on earth can happen....HE STILL LOVES US! It is hard to comprehend God's love for us! Only through God does peace and never ending love truly exist.

Watch out for the rear exit!!

I was waiting for the bath water for Jayce's bath to get just right and as I was standing there with him naked in my arms, I looked down and saw poop on the floor. Naturally, I thought it was the stupid dog. Then, I looked down at Jayce and saw something coming out the exit towards the rear....and realized....it was not the dog!

I'd like to give Obama a Noble PIECE OF MY MIND!!!!

I find it extremely sickening to hear that Barack Obama has won a Nobel Peace Prize. What is the world's facination with this guy? Would any of us get a Nobel Prize if we said to the murderers out there....

"It's okay. I understand that this victim is a huge burden in your life right now....why don't you go ahead and kill them, and well if you can't afford a gun we'll go ahead and provide one for you. It's your choice, it's your life....you shouldn't have to deal with something in your life that is unwanted."

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD that we would first of all stand by and let this stuff happen not to mention give the man who has the power to stop this cruelty a PEACE PRIZE!!!!

I am SO sick and tired of people only worried about themselves!! After all if two people wouldn't have been worried so much about themselves when it came to that sensual moment....then they wouldn't have had to worry about caring about the new someone they were creating!

Been there....done that! We made a selfish choice against God's will about 7 years ago and believe me it was not an easy time in our lives! BUT thanks to God's mercy and grace he turned that poor choice into a beautiful new life that we now call our son. Is Taylor's life more important now than it was at 1 second gestation....NO!!! It was important and precious the entire time.

We need to be PRAYING HARD for this country! Everyone is more worried about saving the environment than saving the lives of innocent children!!

When's the last time you listened to a "life-giving rebuke"?

"He who listens to a life-giving rebuke
will be at home among the wise.
He who ignores discipline despises himself,
but whoever heeds correction gains understanding.
The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom
and humility comes before honor."
Proverbs 15:31-33

Why would I write such a verse? I don't know....I think of the many times that I have been given a "life-giving rebuke". To me, that wouldn't be just critism but something much greater! LIFE-GIVING.....what does that mean? I think about the kind of rebuke/critism that can change a life and make it better.

When you're young it usually involves a rebuke telling you not to do something...like don't touch a hot stove, don't run into traffic, etc...

But when it comes to LIFE-GIVING I think that is a much greater thought! Imagine the possibilities! Imagine if you listened to a wise christian when they gave you a "life-giving rebuke". God's word says you will be at home among the wise....to be wise is a great accomplishment.

So....when's that last time you listened and applied a "life-giving rebuke" from a person of wisdom? Remember the last verse says that humility comes before honor. Is it time you dropped your pride to accept a rebuke in order to receive a life of honor?

The things a dad will do when the kids are bored...

The kids were all bored last night and I needed some space so Matt took the kids outside for awhile. After some time, I got curious to see what they were doing and this is what I discovered! video

Another child potty trained...3 down, one to go!

Briella is doing so good potty training! She's been telling us when she has to go....and even tells us if she has to go poop! I'm so excited to be able to cut down on the diaper buying!! Jayce still has a ways to go though til he's potty trained. Guess I'll just have to be patient! :)
