It’s Still Raining

This song came to me today and I thought I would share it. It’s a great reminder to always praise God and look to Him no matter what we are facing on our day to day walk with God. I personally needed to hear this song today and am glad it popped up on my playlist. I’ll blog more later after my appointment but until then enjoy reading and taking to heart the powerful words of this song.

Praise You in This Storm
words by Mark Hall/music by Mark Hall and Bernie Herms

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it’s still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
“I’m with you”
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

And I’ll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I’ve cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can’t find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away


I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Five Friday

Okay, today I decided to add 5 pictures of myself as a baby. Aren’t I cute?

My Birthday – January 13th, 1985

I had to be around 8-10 weeks in this picture

LOL My daughter makes the same face!

I’m the one in the Purple Dress!

…2 or 3 years old in this picture.
I think I’m eating chocolate cake or something sweet!
…And how fun that I am wearing my favorite color… RED!

Let’s Get Fit!

My husband and I purchased WiiFit last week and it was an almost welcome to reality for me. I know I only had a baby two months ago and the weight is pretty much gone from that but I was planning on getting back in shape and have slightly been putting it aside…SHAME on ME! Well, according to the Wiifit my weight is where it should be but my balance is off a whole lot and I am weak! I could’ve told you about the weak thing! So, what I need to work on is getting tone. How much have I played the Wiifit since I found out that about myself? Not a whole lot so when I heard from Penny today, it was a kick in the face or more like the pants and I thank her for asking for a review on her sites!

So, let me tell you about Penny! Penny is a pretty awesome woman/mom and you find that out easily by checking out her personal blog or even her blog about her fitness journey! She currently has her own fitness studio for women of all ages and I am only slightly annoyed that her studio is in Texas. So lucky for you Texans and not luck for me in Oregon. I did manage to find something useful for myself off her studio site “My Physique INC”. What did I find? I found this great recipe for Salmon! I love fish and it’s also a reminder that I should probably cut my personal fried chicken recipe ( I’m from Georgia) out of the diet for awhile… more or less for my husbands sake as he needs to lose about seventy pounds. Ouch!

I hope I have encouraged you enough to swing by Penny’s sites as I know I really enjoyed them all even though I was slightly convicted but it’s all for the better!

Friday Feast and Lazy Saturday

I did nothing but sit around today and you know, we all need days like that! There’s nothing wrong with kicking back and relaxing in the day that God has given us!

Yesterday evening my husband and I ( along with our daughter) enjoyed a nice night out as we had dinner at Stanfords. We probably would have not just up and decided to go, but we received a gift card through the mail as a promotional hook, along with on from New Port Bay ( my husband and I’s first date a fancy resturaunt…so to speak).  The food was tasty but for the price probaby not worth it. It was also quite odd that our waitress wrote what her tip should be on the check.  We intended on tipping but that was just a bit weird.

I changed the layout on both my daughters and my own blog. I felt as if it needed some sprucing up. I plan to tinker around in the near future with the layout and add my own fun images.

I was quite disappointed today that Zazzle decided to ask my Mom to remove her design because it may be offensive to some.  You can see the picture below.  I thought the design is quite clever and it does not seem to be what they are describing… lots of things could be offensive to people on their site.  Alas, maybe I am more upset because I am a christian but still…

I hope to be reviewing some christian books and other things on my blog soon…so be sure to subscribe to my feed for future blog post updates!

Tuesday and searching for deals…

What a day I have been having… my poor little girl has been screaming bloody murder for the past hour due to gas! I told my husband we better get those mylicon drops today… poor thing.. I can’t stand when she’s sad and that blood curdling scream is enough to drive even the most sane and level headed person off the wall.

I’ve been searching from site to site to find the cheapest airplane tickets and that’s not the easiest thing to find right now. Everything has been going up so much lately… I figured I better try to see my family in Georgia before prices sky rocket even more. Most airports have started charging for your checked luggage… it’s getting crazy with the economy and sadly they have to do it or they won’t make enough money to stay in business either. So, plans for that is underway but nothing is set in stone yet.

I created a sweet little panda yesterday and hope to do a few more little bears this week since I know I’m going to be busy next week with Doctor visits and the like!
