That's what God wants us to do...PRAY! Ephesians 6:18 tells us to Pray! In EVERYTHING! Make your requests, suplications, thankfulness, etc known to God. There is power in pray! Read this quote:

"God shapes the world by prayer. The more prayer there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces of God against evil" … (E.M. Bounds)

God is showing up in our Life Groups on Sunday mornings and showing up in our home! Prayer to God, the daily conversation you have with Him through prayer, brings you closer to Him and into the Plans that He has for you!

So...Pray! And watch God "Do His Thing!"

Moving on...We have a certain little boy who will be turning 2 this Sunday. I cannot believe he is turning 2 already. He l-o-v-e-s the Wiggles. So we will be having a Wiggles birthday party on Saturday!

Corban is turning into such a big boy. Next week I will post some pictures of the Party! I am glad the weather is going to be gorgeous so we can move the Party outside. He is getting a Bounce House as his present from us so it will be great to have that outside instead of the garage.

Until again!

Reading a book...

...or Getting your Book read!

If the first chapter of a book has not caught captured my undivided attention then chances are I will not finish reading it. It's not to say that it's not a good book, just not the book for me.

But reading a book and "Getting your book read" are two different things. And no, I am not referring to a book that you have written. I am speaking of the daily "living out life" book. All the experiences you go through. Why you do what you do and why you act like you act.

All I can say is there are a lot of reasons (influences) that we have had in our lives that is the result of how we respond to things. But know this one thing, even if the influences came from your Parents, they are not always the right influence. That doesn't mean that your Parents didn't have your best interest at heart, they too, just didn't know better either because it was what they saw.

E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G we face in life MUST be taken before our Father in heaven. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-G MUST be sifted and weighed. We MUST start asking, "why do I do this or that a certain way, etc? I can 100% say that if we do this we will find that some changes have to be made and who knows, some spiritial strong holds will be broken as well.

We are to become more like Christ each day! Those of us, who have been saved for many years, and are still drinking the "spirital milk" should be "eating meat!" So, get off the tit (jennifer's favorite word! :o) and start seeking hard after God. For the devil is like a roaring lion, roaming around seeking whom he may devour. Put on the armor of God face each new day ready to WIN this battle and destroy every foot-hold the devil may already have in your life and prevent him from forming any more foot-holds.

As an old song goes:

Shut the door, keep out the devil
Shut the door, keep the devil in the night
Shut the door, keep out the devil
Light a candle, everythings alright

They say that when you have kids time goes by faster. Well..."THEY" are correct! I wake up on Monday morning and wonder how in the heck is it Friday afternoon already; and all this is happening before our boys are even out of diapers yet. Oh My!

Everything is as good in the hood as it can get I guess. We had a few days of sickness pass through the house but I think everyone is getting over it.

We are L-O-V-I-N-G our Church. I have to wonder to myself sometimes why I resisted this church for the past couple of years but I know we are were we are suppose to be. And to admit that I was wrong would be to admit that the Bride was right and, well, we are not going there. :o

God is showing me a lot of things and to put it mildly...My book has been read a few times. It is all for the good though. It's that whole pruning and breaking off the dead. It hurts but it is for my good!

I've started a list of things to do in our house. Little updates here and there and saving up for major ones like a new roof and new windows.

We are getting ready for Corban's 2 year birthday party. I wish you could see him! He is so darn cute and boy does he have an attitude; which he gets from his mom. I know one thing for sure, he knows what he wants and doesn't want and isn't afraid to let you know! Don't worry though, I am being the Godly Father I should be and taking out the belt and wearing that backside out, ALL in the name of Jesus of course and telling him that, "this hurts me more than it hurts you." You know, the things our parents told us as we were getting a beating. Okay, okay, he's not getting beatings...yet anyway. But he is just like me and well, enough said. Just keep Jennifer and Asher in your prayers! :)

Asher will be 5 months on the 17th. He is the total opposite of Corban and will be as tall as Jennifers Dad...aka...Coach. Asher is nothing but smiles all the time and loves to fall asleep on his daddy. Which I don't mind because that actually allows me to have some down time.

We are holding off on purchasing a new vehicle. It is just so darn hard to get another car, with a car note, when the two vehicles you have are paid for.

So, there you have it, Bombadays it in a nutshell!

Have a great evening!
