We all go through life and wonder at times how we got to were we are and why things happen the way they did.  I’ve often heard the most heard sound in heaven will be “ooohhh”..

I’ve had my trials through my life and I am still surprised at times how awesome my life has become.  It has not been without a lot of tears & work but I finally feel whole.  I have often found myself wondering why things happened in my past the way they did and what exactly am I suppose to take from my trials.  I have read devotionals, prayed, read my bible and tried to listen to for that whisper some are fortunate to hear.  But I never felt it was truly answered until I heard Rev. Dr. Hikmat Kashouh from Lebanon.  He came to speak at my church Forest Hill http://www.foresthill.org/watch-and-listen/weekend-message/things-unseen/leaving-nothing-behind.html and told about the troubles and persecution of Christians in the middle east and he said he was asked how can he keep going after all he has been through and his reply was “so I can show others how to live with grace”.  And there it was my answer I have been waiting to find.  I survived my troubles and love God to show others who have been through similar experiences that they can survive too.  We are truly lucky to live in a land where we can worship and love who we want.  And I am truly lucky to have heard my whisper from a pastor all the way from Lebanon..  Thank you Rev. Dr. Hikmat Kashouh

Learning the Disciples

Happy Wednesday!!

Two weeks ago I had a mammogram and was called to come back in and have an ultrasound because they think they may have seen something that was there that wasn’t there before….. BUT don’t worry.. yeah ok the week and half that I had to wait for my appointment I have to tell ya I worried A LOT.  But by the grace of God I had my ultrasound today and nothing was there.  The cyst that they thought they saw before is gone.  So for that I am very thankful.. But just to put my 2 cents in I think there need to be more radiologists on staff to read x-rays immediately instead of stressing you out for no reason at all.  Just sayin.

Savannah has had a great week so far my sister-in-law Cindy picked her up from school today (which Savannah loved) and once I was done with my appointment we all went and got yogurt.  No Nap today for priss so it is early to bed tonight.  After yogurt Savannah and I went and met daddy at the golf course but as Savannah and I were getting ready to leave she HAD to show me what she got today at school.  When I got her bag down she pulled out this little blue New Testament Bible.  She proceeded to tell me that she got it today in Miss Dusty’s class for learning Jesus’s 12 disciples.  Check out the Link Below:

I have to tell you I am one proud mommy I think this is not to bad for a 3 1/2 year old!!  I know God has great plans for her!

Have a great night!
