Blog Challenge~~ Find a favorite quote, bible verse,etc...and tell why you like it....

"What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it?
And when he does find it, he sets it on his shoulders with great joy
and, upon his arrival home, he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them, 'Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.'
I tell you, in just the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance.

I love this verse. I think almost everyone is a lost sheep at some point. I haven't been a lost sheep in the sense I turned my back on God, but I have struggled to find the right church,etc.

This verse in Luke 15 makes me smile everytime I read it. I think we as Chrisitians could learn something from it as well....

Share a favorite verse or quote in my comments!

If you can't tell the blog is under construction...LOL

I have changed it about 10 times in the last few days...I have it like I like it...Just gotta give it some personality ;)

Went to the doc .....

I don't need surgery on anything...if everything heals right.

I am in a sling for the ligments,etc on the left elbow. I am wearing on of those huge black boots on my foot. They couldn't do the cast one reason is I have a bad ankle sprain so they would have had to redo the cast....not fun :P

I hate having to be dependant on other people :P

Thanks for the prayers!

Blog Challenge

Here is a blog challenge question for me to answer.

You can only keep five things you have. What will they be?

1. Wedding Ring
2. My great grandmother's china.
3. Scrapbooks and other pictures
4. Bible
5. Home Videos

What about you?


Today was a good day. I went to church this morning. The message was on John 3:16 which is one of my favorite passages in the bible.

I also bought a cool t-shirt that one of the church groups made. I need more t-shirts so I was glad to buy it.

Houston was a little wild in the nursery. Now I will be worried about him every week.

Houston,Jeremy and I played outside for hours this afternoon. All of us are POOPED. I am trying to decide if I am going to bother taking Houston to field day or not. I gues we will play it by ear. I am not even sure when it starts :P

I need to go check on cheeseman. I think he is snoozing pretty hard...unless he has woken up...then I would cry ;)

Anyway, I will write more tomorrow. I promise!



Prayer for Students

Father of Light and Wisdom,
thank you for giving me
a mind that can know
and a heart that can love.

Help me to keep learning every day of my life--
no matter what the subject may be.
Let me be convinced that all knowledge leads to you
and let me know how to find you and love you
in all the things you have made.

Encourage me when the studies are difficult
and when I am tempted to give up
Enlighten me when my brain is slow
and help me to grasp the truth held out to me.

Grant me the grace to put my knowledge to use
in building the kingdom of God on earth
so that I may enter the kingdom of God in heaven.

On other fronts Houston and I have had a lazy Saturday just playing around :) I love a calm weekend. It is so relaxing.I have a few things I need to clean...BOO! I hate cleaning on the weekend. It should be against the law ;)

Looking forward to church tomorrow. It should be great as usual :) Excited to start the RCIA process soon! Yay, me!

A cyber friend made me a beautiful new rosary. I love using it:) My other one was wood and gave me splinters, but hey it smelled great!

Anyway, I have got a few things to do before the hubby gets home. I rented us a movie and he was going to buy Houston a suprise from Toy-R-US so I should have a fun filled tata for now !

Prayer for today :)

The Lord Be Our Defender

May God the Father bless us,
may Christ take care of us,
the Holy Ghost enlighten us all the days of our life.
The Lord be our defender and keeper of body and soul,
both now and for ever, to the ages of ages.

- St. Ethelwold

I think I may start posting a prayer for the day..

Here is todays:

In Gratitude for Family and Friends

Blessed are You, loving Father,
For all your gifts to us.
Blessed are You for giving us family and friends
To be with us in times of joy and sorrow,
To help us in days of need,
And to rejoice with us in moments of celebration...

We praise You for Your Son Jesus,
Who knew the happiness of family and friends,
And in the love of Your Holy Spirit.
Blessed are you for ever and ever.


I would have to agree....

Go to and see which religion your beliefs are the closest' pretty interesting!
I scored:

1. Eastern Orthodox (100%)
2. Roman Catholic (100%)

Yay, Roman Catholic ! :)

Just call me moon face.

Man, I have been working my hiney off at the gym, not that you can tell ;P Well I go yesterday to the doctor and I am getting put on steriods again:( I could cry. I hate it when I have my big predisone "moon face." Ugh, oh well hopefully I will feel better :(

Houston was sweet this week or me at least :O I think he gave them a run for their money at school. He justs becomes a different child in very social situations, what can I say ?

I am still trying to decide what camera I want. I go back and forth.I have done this for literally like 3 years of hoildays. Is it going to be a huge let down when I get it...LOL?

I am going to take Houston out to do something fun...but not to fun because the steriods have me feeling not so well and I still have this headache :P

Funny shower pic...

Don't you like the

Proud parents to be!

Channeling my inner Martha

I had to decorate for my dear friend Candace's Baby Shower. She is having a girl named Layney Rae sometime in June. As hard as it was to go to a baby shower, the first since losing my baby girl, I am so glad I went. I wouldn't have missed it anyways, Candace is like my sister!

Anyway, she is doing Miss Layney Bug's room in cute! So we went with the colors and theme of her nursery as the shower theme.Everything turned out cute! If I say so myself. We made a diaper cake, it was sooo fun!

I wish I could have stayed longer but I had to get back to Houston. Next time I visit will be to video Layney's birth! Yay!!

Anyway, I will post a few pics! Diaper Cake, Diaper wreath, Candace opening gifts!
