Money well spent

Today I got to use the bag I just purchased from Costco yesterday. It is a shopping bag to save on the use of the store bags (trying the whole Go Green thing), I am impressed it was under $7 and it's huge and stored so much. It is durable, insulted for those cold products I buy also.  I was able to stick 10 of the baby formulas, bread, 2 packs of tortillas/wraps, salad and cilantro. I was impressed and in love, so glad I bought them to use instead to the other bags.

Other then this cool bag I was able to relax in the morning for a few hours, then went to get a few things for dinner, and then got the two older boys from school. Once we all had dinner I went for a walk with my little man, I walked for over an hour and got in a good amount of steps.

I was also able to capture some great pictures, I am blessed and thankful to be able to walk down the street and enjoy a calm, relaxing feeling. To be able to do the things that others may not get the options to do. A beautiful blue Montana sky

Interact with me...

     Comment, post your experiences and life good and bad times in the comments. Interact with me I love and enjoy hearing from you. Lets swaps stories, tell me how you were able to handle or get through the struggles and bumps in life. I want to hear about what worked for you and what didn't, i enjoy meeting new people and learning new things so do not worry about what is said for i want to hear from you on all my blog post. 

Struggles, Worries, Stress...

       Well life is like a roller coaster, it goes up, can go down, can go in loops, and then it can make you want to puke when you stop for a little. that is when you feel the struggles, worries, and stress try or start to kick in. When we worry, and or stress when we go through struggles (with good or bad outcome) it makes us sin. We doubt what God is doing and we are not keeping faith or trust in him, so then that becomes sin. God tells us to trust on him and keep faith through the good and the bad.

 Psalm 41:1 "...the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble." 

Psalm 40:17  But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God. 

     Well the LORD is testing me and my faith and trust in him. I am thankful for what i have been given and the new adventures to come. Though life is never a smooth ride I am truly amazed at how God created all this. Looking forward to the next month of a roller coaster of faith and trusting that is at work (though i trust and have faith now, it just means i am clinging even tighter then i was). I need to be thankful for the next few weeks of (possible) rest before the next loop and turns to come in life. "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of God shall stand for ever." Isaiah 40:8 KVJ (yes i know this verse may not mean much to you toward reference at what i am saying above, but it is a big one to me. Thanks) God will direct me through all i will go through and his words will comfort me.......

    *** This was a daft I had saved a while back and sure enough the roller coaster was non stop for a few months after writing this. Trying to catch my steps and keep my head high even though so much was weighing on my shoulders. But the Lord did what I asked and I am able to smile and walk daily with him and not feel ashamed of my sins I was carrying and battling with. I am forever THANKFUL for the bump I had to over come.

Tending to the Plot

Today was a great day, 
the family ( Chris, Myself, and 3 young boys) went to our garden plot to clean it up.
We do not have much experience in gardening, so this was a fun experience.

     First we learned it always seem like a lot when you first start to pull the weeds, but once you are dirty then you just do not want to stop... (At least for me that is ha-ha) Second you should always included or try to keep the Children happy/busy. The two oldest boys were all excited till they realized it was hard work. Once i told them what there jobs were they did it, for a few seconds. Then my oldest decided he did not want to listen to me after 25 minutes in and wanted to do his own thing the whole time. Boy did that get cut short, he had to sit out on the rest of the family fun.
     My 2nd oldest helped with doing what he loves, collecting big rock out of the garden plot and playing with little man. All in all it was a fun afternoon, trying new thing and figuring out what we needed to use and how to use them and so on. We are still deciding what to put in our garden, but are excited to finish it up. Chris and I still need to do some weeding and removing some of the big rocks on our second trip, but we are so looking forward to it. we loved just being outdoors even though the sun was playing peek a boo with us , it was still nice out and to be able to breath in the clear air was fantastic.
     We did that for a few hours till we went home for lunch and a little relaxing for the rest of the day. Over all it was an eventful day. I relaxed so much that I did not clean the house, so boy will the boys and I be busy tomorrow cleaning and getting things neat and tidy.

Hope you had a blessed and fun filled Sunday

New Additions

My Family has grown bigger by TWO I shall explain 😊 

       I have known Chris (my partner) for about 6 years. He asked me out a couple years ago and I said yes, we went out on a date and it was explosive. Chemistry, Love, passion, strength, vision and so much more. He pushes me and encourages me to be and do better, he has this way about him to calm me down when I am upset. We are similar yet different, an example is we like to enjoy today and each other, relax, take the time we have in (absorb it so to speak) and the difference is that he is quiet, I am not, he has patience's and I could learn to have more. 

      Then there is OUR (Chris and I) new son Baby T, he is such a ham. I Am truly blessed and thankful for this adorable little guy, he lights up my life even brighter then what it was before. He has brought his dad and I even closer together,this little boy smiles and we melt. Just watching him grow and learn makes it worth it. When I see Chris playing with him or talking to him, it is captivating. 

      Some of you may not know but I was a single mother of two boys, now 11 years old and 10 years old. They are my world just as much as Chris and Baby T are, I miss them being so small but i enjoy who they have become. My two older boys are infatuated with him, and were even more enamored with Baby T.  

      I now have a total of Five in my lovely family, and I thank God daily for what he has allowed and has given me. No matter what happens in life there is always a rainbow around the corner I got to experience that with my family.

Fear: (an uneasy state of mind usually over the 
possibility of an anticipated misfortune or trouble.)

This type of FEAR does not necessarily mean to be afraid of something. Rather, it is a reverential awe of God; a reverence for His power and glory.

Fearing the LORD, knowing he has the power over all and glorifying him. I fear the LORD because I know what he can do and have seen it in my life and around me. 

There are many forms of fear... 
like Fearing the Lord, but also fearing the world, the flesh, and others. The LORD tells us to fear him (which turns into Love for him), but not to fear.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. 
~Psalm 111:10 KJV~

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

~Proverbs 1:7 KJV~

My Story

      I wanted to talk about fear, because it was something I had for many years. I was battling a few different things in my life, sins I guess you could say. I prayed daily that God would guide and help me to get over these fears, battles and sins. I asked that if it was the only way for it to be resolved by bringing it to light (out to the open) then so be it. I was starting to get tired of battling, I thought I finally had it resolved (winning the battle so to speak). Many months (close to a year later) went by and I felt the Lord gave me the strength to fight and win, well turned out it came right back into my life. One fear turned into several, and finally came out in the open. 
     Boy did I fear, not of the sin but the judging, the loss of those close to me. I kept my head held high during this time, I owned up to my sins and the battles i was enduring. Because I knew the Lord was working it out for my good, even if that meant my life would change forever.  My biggest fear was losing my dears friends, Because I never confided in anyone for help but God because I knew the judging and the hurt it would cause not to myself but others. What I feared the most happened, I had lost my friends, my FAMILY because it made them look at me different. 
      I was never a fake christian, I tried my best to keep myself busy for God. So that i would not get caught up in my daily battles. It was my escape so to speak, it helped me out in more then one occasion. I thanked God for the people in my life, for staying strong, for not giving up. I thanked him by serving and helping other when needed, I wanted to give what I could to God. This was almost 2 years ago now. Things are different, but I am still happy, for God has blessed me in many ways. 
      Though I am sad about my losses and some changes in life, it does not mean I love God any less then I did before. Yes I am more scared of opening up to others or allowing myself to get involved anywhere. But that is something I work on daily with God help, he holds my hand he walks with me through everything. I am sorry to those that were close to me, I NEVER wanted to hurt anyone or cause any strife in their lives. I know God has forgiven me and Iknow shall continue to hit bumps along the way. 
       But I will keep pushing forward even if it is just the Lord and me, I hope that those dear friends of mine can forgive me and not hold any ill will towards me. 

Fear thou not; for i am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
~Isaiah 41:10 KJV~

(Look in KJV bible)

Tribulations - the good and bad outcomes...

So Tribulations...
is defined as
 A cause of great trouble or suffering
A state of great trouble or suffering

~My favorite Picture~
It states in the Bible "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, 
and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name sake." Matthew 24:9 KJV 
 (more references: Matthew 10:22 KJV, John 15:21 KJV, Acts 9:16 KJV)

I know he will not put me through something he knew I could not handle
 (1 Corinthian 10:13 KJV and take the time to study into that :-) 
and I trust him to help me through any thing I may have to go through,
 whether it for the good or bad outcome! 
Remember we may go through many tribulation and have bad outcomes, but it is how we use, endure, and gain from it what the LORD sees.
I am currently reading a book 
"Corrie Ten Boom Sequel to the bestselling The Hidding Place Tramp for the Lord"
This book is sad, but also inspiring...
It is about a woman who was put into a concentration camp during WW2, she lost most of her family and she was not a Jew. Her family and her helped HIDE the Jews from the Nazis.
But where found out, so thus in the book it tells us about how she went through pain and suffering (many trials and tribulations). She was able to sneak a Bible into the concentration camp. Her sister (Bestie)  and her (corrie) would talk to the others in the camp about the Lord Jesus. they both went through much tribulation, but even though they were going through all that suffering they still told the other women about the Lord Jesus. They spread the gospel and saved many from hell that were dying daily (Bestie was one who would died there). 
It was more then just that Corrie was let go and knew the Lord wanted her to continue spreading the gospel and traveled around the world. 
She faced many trials and tribulations during and after the concentration camp...
(Get the book to find out what she did and what she went through)

But I say unto you, "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
~Matthew 5:44 KJV~

How does your life compare to this... 
Can you be able to say that you endured and continued to push forward?
Many will died in the name of the Lord all over the world and have in the past, that will not change!
We may not have to go through as much as others have or suffer or even died for his name sake, but we should be able to preach the gospel to all and anyone! 
So stop slacking (I included) and lets start reaching these souls out there whether lost or gone astray, seek them out.

Pray to have the burden for the souls out there!
No matter the trials and tribulation we must face and endure keep faith, pray and be joyful. 
Put it on the LORD and allow him full range on & in your life. 

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
~James 1:2-3 KJV~

(Look at these verses also - Isaiah 12:2 & 1 John 4:4)

Patient/Patience ...

As I sit here at my desk just thinking (nothing to amazing)... I ponder what to write about... Lord give me something to write, that will help others and help myself. 
And once again 
Bingo " Patience"
Something I know myself and others lack from time to time.

I know the LORD has definitely been helping me to learn patiences.
 From my Family reading Bible every morning, we each take turns, I read some then each of my boys. They are good at reading, but they have times where they struggle with words or they make up a word that starts with the first letter of the word they are on... 
Yeah its a struggle sometimes to sit there
 and let them read., but I do it to build my patiences. 
Or how about trying to fish...?

Now I will be the first to admit, I DO NOT fish and have not since i was a little girl (between 7-9). 
I am far from a woman who likes to fish, hunt, and well get dirty in the outdoors,
Let alone FISH.
So yes, I have two boys and want them to be able to enjoy boy things. 
So I for the first time I took them fishing.
(This past Monday in Aug 2014)


~Yes I wore an apron, cause I did not want to get the bait or whatever else on me ;-)~

 ~The catch of the day~

It was a sight trying to bait the hook and get my hands icky, or casting the line etc...
But my boys where right there encouraging me...
Telling me "WOW, mom that was a good one it went far out there!"
 Looking back now, I could have been a little more patience with them, as they were with me.
 We went twice in a week, why you may ask? 
Well to build my patiences! 
To do something I may not like to do, so that my boys could enjoy something they may love to do one day. As well as teach them about being patience as well.
Because we all know the process when fishing is 
And when we wait we must be PATIENCE! 

Ahhhh there it is.

Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: 
for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
James 5:8 KJV

The LORD wants us to learn to be patience in life from speaking with others, praying for others, and well even sitting at a red light when you know you are running late... 
God wants us to be patient with others and with ourselves. 
Patience in wisdom, kindness, love, relationships, family, and the list goes on. 
Patience with family who may not know Jesus and the joy that comes with it. 
With friends going through something we may not understand.
I have asked for Patience and we all know when we ask the Lord for Patience 
we will get tribulations, as it states many times in the bible.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
Romans 5:3 KJV

Why did I ask? because i want to learn it, I want to have patience. That's why I put myself in situations to grow from it (ex: Reading the bible taking turns, Fishing). 
It teaches me and it will teach my kids, though there are other things we benefit from those situations also...
Yes and some are tribulations that i may not have control over, but I have a powerful God unlike any other that others claim are out there (for later discussion). 
I know he will not put me through something he knew I could not handle
 (1 Corinthian 10:13 KJV and take the time to study into that :-) 
and I trust him to help me through any thing I may have to go through,
 whether it for the good or bad outcome! 

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
1 Timothy 6:11 KJV

There are many verses with Patients/Patience, 
so why don't you start your patience by looking each of them up!

Look forward to your comments on what you found to help you or what God has done in your life to help with building patiences.
