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)
