Clouds and rain....

Clouds and rain is what I see when I look outside. At first I was bummed and slightly cranky then I though, Why not make a movie night of it? So that's what we're doing. Pizza and movies, lots of snuggles!!

Had an awards ceremony this morning on base for volunteers. It was fun, a little awkward to be receiving an award. But still fun.

Tomorrow is the big day, the First Army Ball. I'm really excited. I have my ball gown, shawl, shoes, jewelry, someone to do my hair. Babysitter for over night, hotel room and an evening with friends and hubby planned.

Also started the classes for finalizing the adoption. With any luck Clay should be Jake's adopted dad by the end of the summer! Thank goodness!

So that's a brief update on us!!!

Busy Busy...Spring is here!

Good morning,

Its way to early on a Sunday to be awake but here I am! Anyways, we just got back from Idaho where we visited my family. Had a total blast, but wasn't thrilled when it snowed on us. Haha go figure only in Idaho! Seeing my family and friends made me really homesick. It was especially hard to leave my grandmother. But I'm very excited she's coming for a week in the summer.
I've been so lonely this past year, that it was really nice to go home and see my family. It's been a rough road to fit in here, and I'm still working on it.

Jake has started night time potty training, its gonna take some work so we'll see how it goes. He seems really excited about it.

I also bought some flowers, gonna try my hand at planting a flower garden, but we'll see how that turns out. I tend to have a "black" thumb. But hopefully they will survive.

So that's the newest update, nothing major here.

What does your life say about you??

I read a few comments on a family members FB blasting Christian's and I had to stop and think. What came to mind, was a defense of my faith it was lyrics to a song. that made me realize that it's not that hard to believe why people mis-trust Christians so easily.

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians
Who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, then walk out the door
And deny him by their life style.
That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

So my question to you:

What does your life style say about you?

It has been crazy busy. And it's taken me some time to recoup from it all. We had an incident at Christmas that shook my faith, my marriage and my trust in people. But with God's help, great friends and a loving husband I'm getting back on my feet.

God's grace has been amazing, and it surrounds us every day. We get to choose how we live, and I want to live my life praising him....how about you?

Military Spouse Appreciation?

Today is military spouse appreciation day. So I just wanted to share this poem with y'all.

The Silent Ranks
Author Unknown

I wear no uniforms, no blues or army greens.
But I am in the military in the ranks that are rarely seen.
I have no rank upon my shoulders.
Salutes I do no give,
but the military world is the place where I live.
I am not in the chain of command orders I do not get,
but my husband does this I can no forget.
I am not the one who fires the weapon,
who puts my life on the line,
but my job is just as tough I am the one that is left behind.
My husband is a patriot a brave and pride filled man.
And the call to serve his country not all understands.
Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free.
My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me.
I love the man I married. Soldiering is his life,
but I stand among the silent ranks known as the military wife.

I am, Are you?

As I was getting ready for a date with my husband tonight, I couldn't get my hair right, then it was my outfit, then my jewelery, then my make up. It got me to thinking.

The average woman is size 6 or above, so what is it in ourselves that makes us think we need to be stick thin? I've been stick thin before, and I didn't look good. In fact I've had more people tell me that at my current weight I look better than I ever did in my teens and early twenties.

So why is it, that knowing I appear "more" attractive now, than I did then do I still yearn and try to be that size "0" again?

The media and society has conditioned us to think that we MUST be barbie doll thin, and yet that's not right.

I may not be a size "0" any more, and I may not be able to turn sideways and "disappear" but you know what I'm ok with that.

God's made me the way I am, he's the master creator. Look at the mountains capped by snow, or a sunset on the beach, or dolphins swimming in the ocean. Could we as simple humans honestly make anything more beautiful than the masterpiece's God's already created?
I don't think so, so why do we keep ridiculing our selves?

I am a master piece created by God! And I will proudly accept who I am!

Will you?

I find that when I'm down on my knees is the best time to look up. This new year has started off really hard. Huge problems on a massive scale that I never thought I"d have to to face again. Issues that wont go away and hurt's that shatter a heart.

But I'm starting to see that through it all, God put me on my knee's so I'd look up. I'd spent most of 2011 focused on "my new life" "My new husband" "My new role as a stay at home mom" and I'd forgotten to focus on him. Why is it that we have to be on our knees before we look up?

The problems arent solved, nothing's changed but I'm more at peace because I'm realizing that its not me, I've got to trust that God will take care of everything.

Not Always....

I'm not always as strong as I should be. Sometimes I still cry and sometimes I still loose my head. It feels like the whole worlds been turned upside down in the last 2 days, and the tears don't seem to stop. I know that we'll get through it and we'll survive.
