As I watched Lily and Sam create this beautiful gingerbread house I imagined what foundation we are laying for our children. With each piece of candy I thought to myself will their house be built on the solid rock of Christ. My prayer for my children is not wealth, fame, or the world's view of prosperity, my prayer is that they love the Lord their God with all of their hearts. I would rather see Lily on the mission field with a dozen children that she is raising for Christ, and Sam a fire breathing preacher of the word of God than for them to have all of the material things this world had to offer. Christmas is around the corner and it will be full of unnecessary things, but Jesus will be our focus His love is the reason I live. Merry Christmas!!!

We had such a fun time in Cleveland with our friends and family. I think this is the first time I have been able to spend Thanksgiving day with my dad since Jeremy and I have been married. The kids made it such a fun day. Watching them play dress-up, gymnastics, and ring around the rosie's. I guess the funnest moment was when my husband was out with my papaw Ralph's bunnies and a female bunny's water broke on my husband's shirt, she then delivered 12 bunnies. lol My husband said he must be a bunny ob/gyn. I love the holiday's I just wish that we could focus more on the great things the Lord has done rather than the misfortune we have faced. The Lord is good.....

I was sitting in the drive-thru at Bojangles and this sweet young girl with red hair was getting my order ready. I'm not sure why, but I started looking around the restaurant, and became keenly aware of the faces of the people in there. They looked so sad as they preformed the mundane tasks at hand. I wondered to myself "are they lost or do they know what I know?" Do they know the savior that paid the price for my sin, and drew me unto himself. I really wonder how many people truly know. Let me tell them Lord of your love......draw them Lord by your Spirit.......help me love them like you do........
