Endurance

Revelation 2:3
You have patiently suffered for me without quitting

James 5:13-18

13 Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. 14 Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. 17 Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years!

Sometimes I wonder why God doesn't answer my prayers! Is it because I am asking for selfish reasons or jealous reasons. Is it because its just not in Gods plans for my prayers to be answered? Or is it because I am not asking enough? I think it is all of these reasons but the main one being I am not asking enough! I may pray about it once and never speak about it to God again! That's not what he wants, he knows all of my sufferings but he wants me to constantly talk to him about them! When I am asking faithfully, not is selfishness or jealousy, he will answer my prayers in the only way he can! HIS WAY!

James 4:14-16

14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. 15 What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” 16 Otherwise you are boasting about your own plans, and all such boasting is evil.

Sleepless!

Its almost midnight here and I am still awake! Who know why! But as I sit here I decided to steal an idea from another blog! So here it goes you have to type 10 things people don't know about you! Type whatever comes to your mind, don't stop and think about it! I have no clue who or if anyone reads my blog so we will see what happens!
1. I separate the silverware in the dish washer!
2. I get stressed out big time when around other people
3. I love to sew but get really frustrated when it doesn't turn out perfect
4. I love going to car shows with Jeremy and can't wait to take Bristol to one!
5. I would much rather read a book than socialize
6. One day I would like to attempt to write a book!
7. I love school and wish I could afford to go all the time!
8. I hate driving
9. I am horrible at being girly
10. I leave clean clothes in the basket until I only have a handful of things to hang up/fold or company comes!

James 3:17

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no partiality and is always sincere.

California here we come!!!!!

In a few weeks we will be home, for a short time!!! Even though we haven't lived in California for 4 years I still consider it home! I remember I couldn't wait to get out, now I pray God has it in his plan for us to go back one day! I secretly hope on this trip God will show us that's where we are supposed to be! Well I guess its not a secret anymore!

Lets just talk about the weather here lately! It is going to be 70 degrees today yet tomorrow we are in for a winter weather warning! Which means lots of snow for us! It is so irritating to be wearing flip flops one day and having to put on uggs and a coat the next! It makes me miss home that much more!

One thing Colorado has going for it is the beauty! I can look out the windows in my living room and see the Rockies, well the rookies with some ugly track houses in front of them! Also they have an amazing dog park! This place is 25 acres of fenced in doggie heaven! It has a walking trail and stream!

God has his plans and I have my plans! But I would much rather follow Gods plans because they lead to something more wonderful that I could ever think up!

I can't believe all that has happened in the last 5 years! I wonder where we will be in 5 more years! I can tell you one thing for sure Jeremy will be 35 and Bristol will be in kindergarten! WOW!

James 2:10

For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws....
Such a freeing verse. I think that sometimes I forget that all sin is equal in Gods eyes. My sins are no greater than any other persons sin! What a freeing thought!

Roll over, crawl, walk!

Bristol hasn't done any of these things,but she is an excellent sitter! Some days when I hear about other six month old baby's doing these things I get a little anxious that she is not even thinking about them and other days I am excited that we don't have to worry about a mover! At the moment I can put Bristol down on the floor and go to the restroom with out worrying about where she is going to be when I come back. I don't have to wrestle with her when she is on the changing table because she doesn't try to run away! Although I know once she can get away I am going to be in trouble because the child hates wearing clothes! We don't even have to consider baby proofing yet but when we do does anyone have a solution for where I am supposed to put the dogs water? I know in her own time she will be moving about but right now I am content with having a stationary baby!

Baby Idol!!!!


I belong to a September '09 baby board. They are currently holding a baby idol contest. I entered Bristol in several different categories and she and Jeremy made it to the final round it the Daddy and Me category. I informed Jeremy of this and he says let me see the other contestants. So we looked at it and Bristol is currently in 3rd place! His response was "How do we win"! He got so competitive over this friendly little event! I just had to laugh!

Bristol blowing raspberries!

Sippy cups and Squash

Yesterday was Bristol's 6 month check up! She came in at 17 lbs, 1.5 oz and 26 inches. The doctor told us it was time to start introducing a sipppy cup and solid foods. So we went and bought Miss Fuss Fuss a sippy cup! We were supposed to buy the kind that can leak so that she can see how it works but like the blonde's that we are we bought her the spill proof kind. Oh well she still likes the thing! We also bought a butternut squash because we decided to make our own baby food. The child loved this stuff! She ate 1 cup of squash! I can't believe how grown up she is getting!

Booger Bean!!!

Today we went to the doggie park! Our dogs go crazy over this place! Its a humongous 25 acre fenced area with a walking trail and a stream! Ollee's favorite part is the stream, he loves to walk up and down it occasionally sticking his head in it, even when its freezing. Paije's favorite part is being able to case after her ball. Blondies favorite part is having the ability to be able to explore. I often worry about Blondie, she has had so many health problems. But today she was a carefree puppy again. She was chasing birds as well as following after Paije as she chased her ball. Today was a good day! After days like today I don't worry about my booger bean leaving me.

6 months ago....

6 months ago today, I went to the doctors for my final check up! My birthday had been the day before and I thought for sure that me and Bristol where going to share a birthday! Nope, I was wrong! I was at the end of my rope, I was done being pregnant! The doctor stripped my membranes and told me if it was going to work that it would work with in the next 24 hours! No such luck! I left the doctors office and went to get a pedicure, I wanted pretty feet when I was on the delivery table!



I sit here today, trying to remember what it felt like to have her in my belly! All I really remember is the horrible pain because she kept kicking my ribs! Now almost 6 months later my beautiful fuss fuss is turning herself in circles when she on her belly! She is so interested in the world, she has to touch everything and if she can, she puts it in her mouth! I love this little girl more than anything in the world!


I can't imagine where we will be in 6 more months!
