Youth trip to Acquire the Fire

The youth are taking a trip over to Indiana to go to Acquire the Fire. We’re going to be leaving tomorrow morning and not getting home until really late Saturday night (or Sunday morning.) Pray for the hearts of the youth we are taking with us. I know of one who is not a Christian yet. I am praying especially for him, that this weekend may make a difference. He basically told me that he doesn’t believe in God and he wouldn’t go to church if it wasn’t so important to his girlfriend. She is one of my girls that I’ve been working with for a little over a year and a half. I talked to him a year ago when they were just friends and he seemed a little more open to salvation, but he had a bad church experience since that time and is kind of skeptical about it all now. We’re doing the best we can do… just accept him and love him as he is and most of all, we keep praying for him.

More teeth

Teeth numbers twelve and thirteen came in yesterday. The two top canines. Maybe she’ll be able to eat meat easier soon. Now the only teeth she needs are the other bottom side front tooth and the bottom canines, then of course, two year molars. She didn’t hardly chew on her fingers at all yesterday since cutting those canines through. Instead she proudly went around with her mouth open to show off her teeth, even though we can’t see them yet, but she doesn’t know that. All she knows is that she can feel them in there.

I Was Tagged!

Now, I don’t usually do these. Mostly because I don’t have the time to do them or I forget not long after I leave the site I was tagged from. This time Phisch tagged me for a Bible meme. It took some thinking, but here it is.

1. Who is your favourite Biblical personage, other than Jesus?

Well, I really like Ruth. She risked everything to stay with Naomi. Because of her nationality, she could have been killed once they got to Bethlehem. She knew it, but also knew the Lord and how He wanted her to do this. He protected her and for her faith, she was rewarded by being in the lineage of Jesus. Wow! What an honor. Plus, I’m a romantic and her story is very sweet.

2. What is your favourite book of the Old Testament?

Ok, so I already told you that I love the book of Ruth, so I’ll give you my second favorite. That would be Genesis. I have probably read through that book at least 15 times by myself. I really enjoy reading of all those men and women who had been chosen by God to do different things. They had their faults and doubts, but God used them and helped them to become the Godly people we think of.

3. What is your least favourite book of the Old Testament?

I don’t really have one, but I guess the one I’d rather not have to read as often would be Leviticus. I enjoyed reading all those laws and stuff and relating it them to how Jesus now saves us, but it was hard work and very slow reading.

4. What is your favourite non- gospel book of the New Testament?

That’s a hard one. I enjoy reading in Acts about the early churches and the people that helped build them. I like in Romans 6 how it talks about getting rid of the old man and living our new lives. I like in 1 Corinthians 13, reading all about love. I like in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-23 of the things Paul tells us to do. I like Revelation because it tells about what I get to look forward to after I die. I guess it’s really hard to pick just one of them.

5. What is your life verse?

I would have to say Hebrews 12:1-2

1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Always remember to look to Jesus and remember what He did for us, while patiently going through this race while we are in this world full of people who need to see us as a testimony to His goodness and sacrifice. Amen and Amen.

6. Tag 5 people who might want to play

Ummm… I have no idea. Like I said, I haven’t done any of these before. I really enjoyed reading Phisch’s and Linda’s and would love to read anybody else’s if they choose to do this.

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don’t understand our partner’s requirements, or even our own. We all have a “love tank” that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Take the quiz


What order do babies’ teeth usually come in? Well, first the two front bottom teeth, then the two top, then the two beside the top ones and then the ones beside the bottom ones. Next are the one year molars, then the canines. Well, Noelle’s teeth have come in kind of weird. She got one bottom and one top first, both on the same day. It took about 2 weeks before the other two front teeth came in. Next, the molars started coming in. She had all four molars before any of those side teeth came. The next teeth that came about a week after her molars were the upper side teeth. She has gone for a good four months without having another tooth come in, I think. Finally, today, one of those bottom side teeth has come in. That makes eleven teeth now. I’m pretty sure the other one isn’t too far behind, either that or those canines are coming in. For all I know, they are all coming in at once. She’s been chewing on her fingers so much. I know that once she’s done with these, the two year molars will be on their way. One good thing, since she’s getting them so late, she’s able to handle them better than younger babies.

I Still Need De-stressing

I went out for a little while yesterday, but had no books to read and no girls to go with me. I only know of three women around here who I’m close enough to to ask for a night out with. One was working, one was out of town, and the other had a baby not too long ago and I didn’t want to bother her yet. I just went to Walmart and picked up a few things. I was only gone for about 2 hours and it takes 30 minutes just to get to Walmart. Well, at least I got some exercise while I was out. I probably walked around the whole store. I got the Lady and the Tramp DVD. I love that movie… “We are Siamese, if you please. We are Siamese, if you don’t please.” I also got a new toy container for the kids. What we’ve been using is a big cardboard box and it’s ripping down one side. I got a few other things, but nothing exciting (unless you are Noelle, she’ll be happy because I got more copy paper which is what I give her for drawing on.)

Well, maybe I ought to get off and finish that washcloth I’m crotheting. I’m about halfway done. I’ve done a few of them. One granny square regular size, one granny square small size (for the kids playset), and one double crocheted rows small size. The one I’m working on is just double crocheting back and forth in rows. I plan on making a few more. The next one will probably be rows alternating between single, double, and triple crochet.

I’m sorry. If you don’t crochet, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about up there.


I’m a bit stressed out with what is going on around here right now. I’m hoping my sweet, loving, caring husband (who reads my blog) will allow me a night out tonight. I don’t know if there are any other ladies or girls who would want to join me, but I’d like it if I could find someone. I just love a good girls night out.
