Worship Wednesday

This is one of my favorite songs right now.  Every time I listen to it, I am blessed so much!! It reminds me that know matter what lies ahead in this life, we are never alone.  God is always there, and is always faithful to see us through.

2015 New Years Goals

We are a couple of weeks into the New Year, usually I make New Years "Resolutions", but not this year.  I feel sometimes we make them, however we don't follow through and end up feeling discouraged.  So with that being said this year I have made a list of goals, nothing that is to far out of reach.  I do feel change is good, and there is something about the New Year that feels like a fresh start.  So this year my "New Year Goals" are…. 1. Eating more healthy, which I love. However, living in a house of boys who are meat and potato lovers it's kind of hard.  Since we homeschool and most of our lunches are at home,  I am going to start eating more salads and cooking meals with fresh produce which I love. Then for dinner I will cook for the family and just do major portion control!  Maybe after awhile they will want to dab into my yummy lunches and change their eating.
2. De-Clutter, donate, get rid of!!! I love doing this!  We have lived in this house going on 15 years. I am shocked at how much "stuff" we have accumulated in this amount of time.  We are also moving in a few months which makes me really want to de-clutter!  My goal is if I have not used it, worn it or touched it in 6 months to 1 year, then I do not need it. 
3. I am hoping to journal and blog more, I truly enjoy writing but don't do it nearly as much as I would like to.  I am praying about how much t.v. I watch, how much time I spend on social media.  I do enjoy social media and there is nothing wrong with it, I just want to have a balance.   
4. Last and certainly not least is my walk with God.  I have been praying that I would see others and have love and compassion for them as He does. I know this will not be easy, but He loves them and has Grace & Mercy for them just as He does me. 
So I know with these goals I will do better some days than others, but just as Christ has Grace & Mercy for me, I must remember to have it for my self during this year.

Easy Meatball Sliders

So I have been trying to find easy and delicious lunches and meals for my family.  There is something about Summer that makes me feel this way.  I think it might be it's a new season so lets try new meals?  So while in the kitchen I decided to throw this together.

I heated up some frozen meatballs, then added some leftover spaghetti sauce, topped with mozzarella cheese and placed on a whole wheat dinner roll. 

It was super easy, the kids loved it and so did I.

Be a candle-lighter for your family's dark places

Sometimes we feel hopeless, like the old saying "somethings will never change".  Well I was reminded today after reading this, no matter what our "something"is God always has our back.  He is our Hope in every circumstance.  Not only is our Hope but He will give us Peace in the midst of every situation we will ever go through.  So whatever your "something" is give it to Him, lay it down and accept His Hope and Peace in return.  Take a moment to read the link below written by Sally Clarkson, you will be glad you did!

      So with much prayer and much time talking with my husband we have decided to "Homeschool" this year.  This has been a long desire as well as my children for many years but just didn't feel it was something I could do.  Thoughts of  can I do this, will I mess them up and then the one everyone complains about... they will be so anti-social and have no communication with other children.  I believe with any desire you first have to pray about it, then wait.  I know with Gods Will anything is possible.  We all have seasons in our lives and we believe for this season it's what is best for our family.  I have really struggled more than anything with the thoughts of...  what will people think, what criticism will I receive to my face and behind my back?  I was then reminded today from my sister.... "What people think of me is none of my business, but what God thinks of me is everything" That was like a breath of fresh air, like a load was lifted off my shoulders.  How true?  I know not everyone is going to agree with my decision and that's ok.  At the end of this life I,  nor will my children have to answer for what other peoples thoughts or opinions of us are.  I am excited and both nervous as we embark on this new journey in our lives.  After Cory graduating I have realize we truly only have them here in our home for a very short time.  It is my desire to pour into them as must as I can while they are here.  Teach them and train them the life skills we feel are important.

  Proverbs 22:6
Train your child in the way he should go: and when he is old,  he will not depart from it.
