Its a Beautiful Day~

It is truly a beautiful day here today. It is sunny and warm with a slight breeze. We are about to start our wisdom booklets for today and hopefully hurry up with school, so we can get outside! I am so ready to go out adn just enjoy the weather. Its days like this that make it hard to finish my housework. My kids are ready to go and so am I. I was thinking this morning about all the uncertainty that we are facing as a nation right now. The "swine flu" is quickly spreading our way and now not only do we have that to worry about, but we have the economy, our freedom and a host of other things. But we should fear not because our Lord has all this under control. My beloved is seriously considering starting his own business. I am on the other end of the spectrum where I think he should just stay put. But who am I to say yay, or nay? I am not the one having to work in the enviroments that he has to work in. I feel for my beloved and am so proud that he is dilligient in taking care of us. And putting our family above his comfort. Just like our Lord takes care of us. My whole point in saying this is that we should get out and enjoy what the Lord is giving us, whether it be a beautiful day, a warm afternooon , or just a good nights sleep. I think about my mom alot too. I can really see her going downhill. She is loosing her hearing, can not see good, nor can she eat like she used to because of her Type 2 diabetes that she was recently diagnoised with. She depends on me to drive her to the doctor , cook her food, take her blood suger and prepare her meals. It is almost like her becoming a little kid again. Her health has declined so much in the last year. Especially the last 6 months. She is also having a hard time remembering things. I tmakes me sad and mad at the same time. I also feel overwhelmed to have her needs and our needs to take care of. But at the same time this is only a season of my life that could end at any time.My mother is 74 years old and doesn't have all the time in the world left. I feel bad at the way I loose my cool with her sometime. I am praying about that. And I need the Lord's help to change that. All in all I am very blessed and I pray that you all will be very blessed as well. That is one of the reasons that I decided to start this blog. I wanted to share my life with people in hopes that the mistakes that I make and have made can encourage others to do better and to let other people that are dealing with the same situations that I am , know that you are not alone. God is with us, leading and directing our paths if we are born again. I want ot encourage anyone who reads this and is not sure of that salvation to get it right. Pray a simple prayer to the Lord and admit that you are a sinner and that you believed that He sent His only son, Jesus, to die for you on the cross. And that you accept His gift and sacrafice and that you want to be sure of your salvation. Accept Jesus into your heart, and ask for the Lord to do His will in your life. If you pray a prayer similar to this and you give your life to Jesus because of reading my message, please leave me a comment and let me know. I would love to send oyu a couple of things and direct you to a couple of good websites. I have to go for now, but I am praying that the Lord blesses us all today and keeps us safe!

Blessings~
