Each year brings new lessons, new challenges and new victories…as we say good-bye to 2009 and look toward the new year, what are some things that you will do differently this year?

Here are a few of mine:

1 – Seek Him. There is nothing that changes your life more profoundly than consistently seeking God. This year I will be studying his Word more and devoting more time specifically to seeking Him.

2- Be Still. This is a biggie for me. It is so hard to take time to just “Be Still” — I truly believe it is in these quiet, still moments that God is able to speak volumes to us.

3- Serve. Giving myself. Actually using what God gave me! What a concept!

Your turn! ……

Happy New Year!!

Praying blessings for each of you for the new year!

We have been so blessed in so many ways this holiday season. First off, it was Aiden’s first full Holiday season spent at home with no hospital stays! We have so enjoyed being home and enjoying friends and family this holiday season! 🙂

Many of you know that I have a cousin who was critically ill. The doctors gave absolutely no hope and were actually waiting on him to pass. He was in severe liver and kidney failure and they believed that his brain was effected and had possibly already herniated from increased pressures. The DNR had been signed and transplant teams called to harvest his heart upon his passing…..and then a miracle happened. He opened his eyes, began following commands and now 4 days later is sitting up in bed, playing his IPOD and talking! It is truly a miracle–no other explanation. Dr’s and medical staff from surrounding hospitals in ATX have been coming to see this miracle for themselves. To God be ALL the GlORY!! I know that God has a great plan for Alex and cannot wait to see what he will do with his new chance at life!

In 2010 I will be adding blogs on at least a weekly basis and will be having periodic contests for give-aways, etc. Please join our mailing list for updates!

Have a wonderful but safe New Year’s Eve!!!

Okay, I keep forgetting about this thing..but since I’m spending way to much time on the internet right now while my 10month old is sleeping in his highchair (guess those yogurt melts wore him out ) I thought I’d drop in a post.

Being a SAHM is a great job..but it’s definitely hard to be your own boss. So easy to be lazy all day and not get anything done because HEY there’s nobody here to tell me to do it! And Aiden couldn’t care less. That’s something I truly have to work on….Keeping myself motivate and not letting myself get sucked into the internet, tv, etc.

I wonder if anyone else has this SAME problem???
