Trials of Life

My life has changed so much in last 6 years.
We have had ups and downs, ins and outs.
I went through a depressing phase 4 years ago..
with the ins and outs of trials, testings and pain.
In all things.. Christ gives me strength!

I think when you become a parent, the trails that you though you had before, diminish
Life has a different meaning
You would do anything for your child
you worry
 you lose sleep-
not just because you have a cranky child
but that you just want to watch them- protect them
then on a few days you think that you must be the worst parent ever.

I don't no why I worry so much
maybe its the trials of being self-employed
or wondering if our child will be diagnosed with my disease.
Its life- and I need to have Faith

little R strengthens me each and everyday
even the times when I hear the rattling of the box of Lego's hitting the hardwood floor.

bit by bit she builds

wow MOM look what I made!

look at how high I can build!
-with no worries of the leaning tower

because if it falls we go right back and start again!!

That's LIFE
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have over come the world.
John 16:33

God doesn't just give us anything He won't handle for us,
if we have Faith.
on our own we are weak.
In all things God works for the good of those who love HIM
Romans 8:28
What trials are you going through?

God Bless

Iced Coffee

When Starbucks started popping up in every corner
and inside almost all the stores I shop.
I became HOOKED!
Well-At first I was overwhelmed...
BUT I just knew I had to take part in this latest trend of coffee drinking
I mean EVERYONE was doing it!
I never knew what to order and couldn't pronounce half the words
And most of the time I would take one sip and dispose..
Then the unthinkable happened
I found it!!
the one with my name printed all over it!
Chi latte!
then I got bold and started adding some honey!
then a little pumpkin spice!
But I didn't stop there
 I discovered even more amazing flavors!
like MOCHA!
In the winter add peppermint!
WOW! talk about Merry CHRISTmas!
theres more
is a summer must have
OH the chocolate chips!!
I have never liked the flavor of cold coffee before
but starbucks did something to me
I even started buying those Starbuck  Frappuccino mocha coffee drinks.
-the ones in the cute glass bottles!
But let me tell you about being hooked on Starbucks
it costs alot of BUCKS!
-probably where they got the name HA HA

A friend has introduced me to this-

Homemade Iced coffee

1 1/2 cup suger
2 cups water
1/2 cup instant coffee
3 Tablespoon vanilla
Heat water and sugar till sugar dissolves, add coffee and vanilla
for making an 8oz glass use:
 1 cup ice, 1/4 cup coffee mixture and 1 cup cold milk
*it is also good without the ice
store extra coffee mixture in fridge.

To all the Starbuck fans!!!

God Bless

Being a Women

(Free printable)

Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is a woman.
A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories.
Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.
Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself.
A woman who listens to her needs and desires.
Who meets them with tenderness and grace.
Imagine a woman who acknowledges the past's influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.
Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and wisest voice.
Imagine a woman who names her own gods.
A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness.
Who designs a personal spirituality to inform her daily life.
Imagine a woman in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.
Who celebrates its rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.
Imagine a woman who honors the body of the Goddess in her changing body.
A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom.
Who refuses to use her life-energy disguising the changes in her body and life.
Imagine a woman who values the women in her life.
A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.
Imagine yourself as this woman.
 Patricia Lynn Reilly

"It takes courage to face ordinary life, because it is easier to
run from daily responsibilities than to face them.
Ed Gungor, author

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is a beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is life, fight for it!
Mother Teresa
