Happy Tuesday!! Bloggety Blogging early because I won't be home the rest of the day.

Things are going pretty fantastic ;)

I got upset yesterday evening and wasn't quite sure how to handle it. I went through great trouble to extend an olive branch to someone. They accepted it and then turned right back around and did something very mean.

I thought about it a lot........Wondering did they know what they were doing? Surely they wouldn't do that on purpose. Past history says yes, but I just don't want to believe that people are that cruel. Mom seems to think it was done on purpose.

My normal reaction would be to hash it out with them as to why they did it.......It took a lot for me to just let it go. I cried briefly about it and let it go. Those who know me and know me well, know that was a struggle for me.

God blessed me with wonderful, wonderful friends and family. I vented to them about it and said nary a word.


LOL That wasn't turning over a new leaf for me, that was turning over the whole Yosemite National Park =)

Got to finish scrubbing my house and then head to the gym with Angel and Mike.

After that collecting kids and off to Community Groups for the evening!

LOST Tonight.......... YAY!!!!!!!!!!! American Idol...semi yay!! I Love LOST soooooooooo much!!

Okay, have a fantastic Tuesday!!

Life is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo wonderful ;)

Enjoy it.



Hit my

30 lb mark =) Running late gots to go but had to share!!

What can I say? I started out to blog about how bad my morning had been, how grumpy I had been........This or that bothering me.

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE God?

It's so awesome the way things work. I am loving these private moments with God.

As most of you know, I am a very, very new Christian. A baby if you will. Getting things right, trying to do the right thing, it's not easy by any feat. I hear Gods voice sometimes and then wonder if it's my conscience or really God.

Last night began some frustration I was having with a certain issue of my life. I asked God what I was supposed to do and he told me. It wasn't what I wanted to hear. Not even a little bit what I wanted to hear and it's not what I want to do.

I kept thinking is that my conscience or is that God? This morning in regards to not knowing what I'm supposed to do, I became frustrated. I talked to God, I cried because I really didn't know if that was him or myself.

So......... You already know I'm going to tell you something happened!!!
I love God!!!!!! I have been reading this book. I haven't picked it up for a few days and came home from the gym to read a few pages.....

I open it up, read one page, turned to the next........The answer to my question was right there on the page in black and white. Worded exactly like I heard in my heart. It wasn't my conscience it was God and he was affirming it again in the book and then giving me the reason why. The full explanation of why I needed to do what he had said. Not a comparison to a situation of mine, a full exact wording of what I had asked and heard.

I couldn't believe what I was reading. I honestly couldn't believe it. I sitll can't believe it. I am just amazed and humbled with every experience I have with God. It makes me want more and more. I laughed and cried at the same time because I am in such awe of Him.

Totally amazed and still thinking, "Did that happen???"

It did =)

I love life soooooooo much =)

Yesterday at Quints party, his mom had so much work to do for the party....Him and his mom made me a big ole thing of Gluten free brownies and cookies. Their kindness is amazing! They didn't want me to be left out. Their generosity towards me and my children. Overwhelming.


Could life really get any better?


Happy Monday!!

Sunday =D

Oh my...... Today..... I'm at home for a brief pit stop, but had to blog about church today.........

All my school years practically, I went to a Catholic school. Learned religion year after year.......... Why didn't I ever get this stuff?

This morning of course was Palm Sunday. I have been to church for palm Sunday many years and never knew exactly what it was.

It was when Jesus rode into Jerusalem before his crucifixion and the people waved palm at him as he rode in.

I never knew. Well, with that story comes the crucifixion. I had no idea they were going to be reading that Gospel today and as I knew I would, I cried.

I read it the other night in private and wept. I heard it aloud this morning and wept again. Hearing how afraid Jesus was prior. I just cried. He knew what they were going to do to him. How he went with his closest friends and prayed at how scared he was. He didn't understand why God was doing this. When Daniel talked about.....

Mark 14:36
36"Abba,[a] Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will."

He didn't do what he wanted to do, he did what God wanted. The most unselfish act in history. He was living the life we needed to be living and he was going to be crucified and die in place of where we should be. He didn't deserve that. We did and do.

Why didn't I pay attention to this stuff before? Maybe I didn't want to learn it, maybe I was selfish and too focused on myself. But I got it this morning.

A moment of clarity came when Daniel was reading the Gospel about how after the ninth hour when Jesus said his last words and took his last breath (I was a blubbering mess) that the curtain was opened from heaven and earth and it is THROUGH JESUS that we can now be with God. I did not know that. Not ever. I didn't understand what it meant. I understand it now. Through Jesus we can now have a relationship with God. He suffered, died and was buried because we as people are such awful creatures. We are all awful, selfish, hurtful human beings. Gods Grace. Jesus death.
What a sacrifice. I didn't know where the term Excruciating came from. They needed a word to describe the pain and suffering that Jesus went through on the cross. I had no idea the origin of that word.

Was just amazing this morning. Even more amazing that I am gaining such a deep understanding and crave more. Showing my Faith in God, trusting he is going to take me where ever I need to be. No matter what I do, I will end up where he wants me to be. I can kick, scream and fight it, do my own thing......but in the end I will go where He takes me.

Might as well just sit back, relax and receive everything he has in store for me.


I can't put into words how full of Joy my heart is.

I thank God for helping me understand what Easter really is about. I thank Him for sending His son to die for me, so I can be who I am. Selfish.

God is Love, Hope, Joy, Goodness, Fun, Happy, Beautiful......Everything that is Good, God is.

He is my Home =)

I wish I would've known all these years that I couldn't get happiness from individuals. Would've taken a lot of pressure off me and them. Happiness comes from with in. Happiness comes from God being with in you.


With my heart bursting, I have to gooooooooo to the gym and then a party at the fire house YAY!!!!!! =D I'm excited!

Have a wonderful Sunday and Carol church was FABULOUS!!

Love, Love, Love

Saturdayyyyy! =D

What a long day and it's still not done. Had to take a break. x.x

Savannahs soccer orientation was this morning, I signed Kyle up for team manager so we met him over at the place and got her shirt. All those U of K fans on her team and her colors are red and black LOL! They were all sighing!

Bet my mom loves it!

Went to the gym and worked out. Me n Mike were working out and from the power outtage yesterday the air was out and we were HOT! Good Lord have mercy! My hair was soaked and LOL Mike was dripping sweat as well. Yesterday, as I said above the power went out and me, Mike and Kevin worked out in the dark, was kinda fun! Mike told Kevin we should have a candle light dinner in there and put the lights out on Friday nights. Serve some wine! Kevin said get everyone drunk and put them on the treadmill! LOL!

Not your ordinary Y .....O.o

I love the gym soooooooooo much. =D Oh..... for other news..........28.5 lbs =) I was standing next to Kyle yesterday and Savannah looked over at me and said "wow mom" =) Yea, yea I know I know!! My clothes are all falling off and I LOVE IT!!!

Me n mom went and took Anthony to rent his tux for prom, then out to Steak N Shake to eat. We were all crabby and grumpy! Was kinda funny.

I got back to moms then walked 2.5 miles. I loved it! =D It's so beautiful out and it's just my time to think and reflect on the day. I can't tell you enough how gorgeous it was today!!

I'm soooooooooooo stinking happy =D


<3 you all and it totally is a wonderful life!!

Palm Sunday tomorrow YAY!!

Faith.....What exactly is it?

From my understanding it's believing in something you can not see, nor touch. The definition in the dictonary is believing in something even though there is no proof.

I guess the no proof can apply when you are having faith in a person.... but it totally does not apply to God. Take a look around the world and how can anyone say there is no proof.

Faith has been a difficult challenge for me. I can't tell you the personal struggles I have had with Faith. I understand the concept of what it is. You hear people time and again say "Have Faith"....Saying the phrase and being at a spot in your life where you have true Faith is very, very difficult.

All my life I have not trusted many. Becoming a Christian and having a relationship with God means having Faith. "Giving it all to him" Isn't as easy as it sounds. Hey, someones offering you a free ride from all your pain and sin..........It should be easy to hand it over to him.

It takes discipline and practice to do this, but when you REALLY give it to him, the burden lifted off your chest is so freeing.

It's funny, I will picture myself giving everything over to him. My worry, my sadness, my problems.......I see his big thumbs coming over to pick them out of my head. I feel better for a few, but then I take them back. I hear God say......"Dianna, give them back" So I hand them back over..... Wash, rinse, repeat.

I'm getting better about giving them to him and my heart feels so free! I just wish I could show you guys my inside, how broken I was.......I wish I could show you now how full my heart is. I can't even believe it myself =)

Before I close, keep Elmer and his family in your prayers. His father passed away today. He was a terrific, terrific man.

Lots of Love

What can I say......... I learn more and more every day. =) I, as you guys know have been changing and learning. I have learned more this year than in my past thirty-seven on this earth.

It's amazing how close-minded I have been.

I ask God to show me what areas I need to work on. This week, long focus on accountability. I am quick to become defensive and then look to blame someone else for anything that has gone wrong in my life.

Now that I am taking apart the past instances in my life I do see and accept my part in things that have gone bad. I know in a lot of the cases I am not the sole one to blame, BUT.........I need to be responsible for my own shortcoming and accept/acknowledge only my part. I could not say that before, I didn't see it before. Blame, blame,blame.

If they have done wrong, it is their problem. Sure I have been hurt. Being beaten surely wasn't my fault, no matter what I said or did.....But, I am dealing with all that happened and he will be held accountable for his wrong doing. I need not worry about any of that anymore.

Free my own spirit, focus on becoming who I want to be. Letting everyone else live their own life and accept responsibility for their own actions. Makes my life alot easier if the only reaping and sowing I'm worried about is my own.

It has been hard for me to accept some of the things I have done. I had to write letters for therapy. Angry letters letting every single feeling protrude out of me. They were horrible, horrible letters.....BUT......I let it out. I don't have to carry that anger around with me.

I am working on forgiveness also. I am trying to right wrongs I have done. Trying to apologize where I can.

I apologized to Kyle for things I said and did when we were married. I was so angry at him for this and for that, but I was focusing on his wrong, not mine. It takes two people for a marriage to work and I needed to worry more about fixing what I was doing wrong....... Less time on what he was doing wrong. Sure it needed to be voiced, if he didn't know what was bothering me, how could it of been fixed? I should've used nicer words. I should've been more compassionate.

Faith, patience, faith, patience......Go hand-n-hand

We are the authors of our OWN book.

God amazes me every day when he shows me something new.

Much Love and Happy Thursday.

Life is too wonderful for words =)

Hearing From God

I love God! He has a sense of humor too! The closer I become to him, the more I understand this speaking thing. Sometimes, when it happens, it's so strange!! I have learned that God doesn't always use an inner voice.........Sometimes he uses others.

Did I mention I love God LOL!! I have been VERY impatient as of late. Not angry and not moody, just impatient. I know he is trying to teach me patience and some of things that are popping my way....Well, they make me smile! =D

You know I can be having a dark weepy moment and go back to read my bible or my book that's called Hearing From God Each Morning and just turn to a random page and it is filled with stuff I'm dealing with at that moment.

Last night I was saying my prayers and I was a bit miffed about how some people even though (from my perspective)don't seem nice....They have done bad things or do bad things...... but seemingly everything just works out for them. I have a hard time dealing with this most. It's hard when I know what's in my heart. I have done and said some bad things in the past.... I'm not proud of those things. I think that's where God is trying to place patience the most. When I'm hurt, defense mechanism kicks in to try to hurt them back. I have to stop that. Inside my heart though, I know what's there. It's full of love and I have had enough heartbreak in it to keep Shakespeare busy for his eternity........ Through all the pain and bad I still have so much love......So, I was asking God to please help me understand. I asked him to "Please help me understand" He showed me two things and I just sit here smiling at the way all this works. How could people not believe there is a God? Why didn't I seek him so long ago? He is amazing!!

Anywhoo.......I'm going to share my response from God =D

I asked God to make me understand....Here is the page I turned to!

God Cares About Every Detail

Are not two little sparrow sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's leave (consent) and notice. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, you are more value than many sparrows. (MATTHEW 10:29-31)

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, God wants to speak to you every day. He wants to lead you step-by-step away from trouble and into the good things He has in store for you. He cares about the tiniest details of your life. According to the verses for today, He even keeps track of how many hairs you have on your head. He cares about the desires of your heart, and He wants to reveal to you truth that will set you free from worry and fear.

God's plan to share an intimate relationship with you existed before you were even born, as you can read in Psalm, 139:16: "Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days(of my life) were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them" God knows all of our days and has a plan for each one. If we will ask Him what we are to do each day and believe that He is guiding us, we will find ourselves fulfilling His plan for our lives.

It seems incomprehensible that God could have a plan for every person on Earth, but also brings great peace to know He can take chaos and turn it into something meaningful and worthwhile. Spend time getting to know God because His plan is unveiled through intimate relationships with Him.

Remember that God even keeps track of the sparrows---He is surely in control of whatever life brings you today.

So...... that is number one and the second thing.....

LOL, I sat at my computer and saw I had a mail from Joel Olsteen Ministry. I said before I opened, it...."Okay, God what are you going to tell me this morning" I KNEW it was a message for me LOL!! So....... this is what it said.

"…I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances"
(Philippians 4:11, NIV))

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
It's easy in life to get so focused on our dreams, goals, and what we want that it consumes us. We can get to the point where we're not going to be happy until it happens. But I've found that if we have to have something in order to be happy, our lives are out of balance. When our goals and dreams start to frustrate us, when we lose our peace, and we're not enjoying life; that's a sure sign that we're holding on too tightly. What's the solution? You've got to release it. Freedom comes when you say, "God, I'm turning it all over to You. You know my desires, and You know what's best for me. I'm choosing to trust You and trust Your timing."

When we learn to be content whatever the circumstances, it takes away the power of the enemy. It takes away his ability to frustrate us. Not only that, but by our actions we are showing our faith in God. When you choose to trust in His timing, you can live in peace, you can live in joy, and you can rest in Him knowing that He has good things in store for your future.

Heavenly Father, today I choose to trust in You. I release frustration over the dreams and desires in my heart, knowing that You know what's best for me. I choose to trust in Your timing because You are faithful, and I will bless You in all things. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

=D Isn't He AWESOME!!!! He defintely turns my mourning into dancing!! My sadness into laughter! My sorrow into Joy =)

All this happening in my life is so cool!! I have changed so much and people notice it. I see now, what people mean by changing. I look at myself sometimes like it's not even me. Who I was 3 months ago wasn't me..... It wasn't the real me. Who I am becoming is me. I was so lost. Lost beyond words. I would take all the heartache 20 times over again, if I was guaranteed, how I feel now, would be how it ends. Well, begins =)

Anyways, I had to share because I got up at 5 to use the rest room and saw that in my box and it just made me smile.

He speaks, you just have to listen =D

And me, myself and I need to worry about me and stop worrying about everyone else =)

I love Him!!! There isn't even a word to describe it!!

Have a wonderful Monday.

Migraines x.x

I am on day 3 of a horrible migraine. It started the other day with bad auras and the headache Monday night was so bad that I was shaking and scared to death. I didn't sleep well Monday night, tossed and turned and woke up every couple hours. Argh!

Yesterday it was a bit better. I took Tylenol before going to the gym and then again later before I went walking. I thought exercise would help them, but so far.......nope. I slept better last night than I did on Monday night. Even so I still woke up a few times and Claire woke me up at 4:30 to go potty.

Today it's better than yesterday, progress none the less, but I'm at the point I'm ready for it to leave now. I can't go to the gym today, have to go tonight so that's all good, but..........................

I'm down officially 20 lbs =) All my clothes fall off YAY!!!!!!

Yesterday Angel and I had such a wonderful time at the gym. She brings so much joy to my life. I laughed so hard when the hotter, sexier gym guy came over to us! Even funnier when he said "I never noticed you here before" Holy crap buddy I live there!! When I turned back to see Angel who was 30 different shades of red, omg I laughed so hard I was almost crying. LOL! I love those people there. They make me happy. Every single one of them. Even the seniors that laugh at me and Angel as we walk out the door unable to walk.

Busy day and going to be gone allllllll day til tonight so have a fantastic day all.

I love God and Love you guys very much.

Happy Wednesday!

Grouchy people

I wonder what runs through peoples heads sometimes. I really do. I have this friend at the gym Linda. She is the nicest sweetest woman one could ever meet. She would do anything for anyone.

She was crippled by polio, she can't stand up straight and is hunched over pretty badly and has to use a walker. I see her almost every day at the gym. She rides the bike on the end every day because they are close together and she can't get in between them being hunched over. Everyone usually will give up that bike for her because they know she can't get between the bikes and then has no where to put her walker.

Well..........There's this one lady who...ugh...she's just mean. I have been in there a couple times this week and that woman knows Linda comes at the same time and hops right on the end bike. So Linda will some times come talk to me to wait for the bike and sometimes she will go walking etc. She's been sick lately with a cold and came down and talked to me and Angel today. The lady was on the bike again and Linda went over to ask her how long she was going to be and the lady snarkily replied "I'm going to be on here for a realllllllly long time" Linda who really just wanted to ride the bike, finds a place for her walker and then I watched her try to squeeze to get to one of the middle bikes.

Why couldn't that lady of moved over? She did it one day last week too. It's almost like an imposition to her that Linda waits on the bike. She gets huffy and puffy. I just don't understand. That lady is healthy as a horse can easily get on one of the other bikes.

I dunno it just bothered me. She's the kindest soul ever and how anyone can look at her sweet nature and just be mean..... I just don't understand.

Happy Tuesday

=) Monday!

What a wonderful weekend I had =) Fabulous in so many ways.

First things first.........Blueberry Preserves! Sometimes for odd reasons, I crave blueberries. Elmer a few weeks ago sent me Wild Blueberry Jelly from Maine....... I can say without hesitation that it was the best blueberry preserve I have ever tasted. I have been on a hunt locally to find something similar, but nothing even comes close. I have three jars of blueberry preserves in my refrigerator. I have used almost one. It's nothing like the one from Maine. The one from Maine had perfect blueberries, nothing crunchy etc. The first jar I opened here, well there's some good blueberries in it, but there's a lot of crunchy ones. I eat it in my grits. It's a perfect fit in grits. So, as soon as the jar is finished we will move on to the second one and see if it comes close to the Maine Preserves. Sigh, why do I only fall in love with stuff that's far away! LOL! My syrup is in Vermont, gotta get the pattern!

Next ........Movies!!

I watched hmm four movies this weekend. First was Precious. Language was really, really, really bad. BUT......it was a very powerful movie. What that poor girl endured, I just want to hug her. Sad movie and I'd like to think people in real life aren't that cruel, but a sad reality is, they are. Probably worse.

Next was Alice in Wonderland. Me n the fam went to see it. I totally liked it a lot! Savannah did as well, however I think she was a little scared when the Jabberwocky came out. It was like a continuation from the first one and it was really well done. I love stories where escapes happen from your own life and you get to be taken to some wonderful place.....There are many days I would like to scour my yard looking for rabbit holes to fall down!

The third was Where the Wild Things Are....... Totally disliked this movie. The boy and that screaming. I wanted to whoop his butt five minutes into the movie. I totally would've been upset had I paid to watch it in a theatre, I can listen to my own kids scream for free. The boy was over the top annoying and the book was a favorite of mine. Sigh.

Okay, last movie of the weekend was Hachi. Dear Lord in Heaven, I cried more through this movie than any movie I have seen. It was well done and wow! I don't know what to say. Juan watched it with me and kept remarking about how sad it was and how touching. He said to me "Mom, how come I don't get sad when I watch movies of people like that, but when it's animals it's so hard to watch" I tried to explain to him that animals don't say things to hurt you, animals don't use you, animals don't break your heart, animals won't ever disappoint you..........They are always happy to see you. When you walk into a room, no human would ever greet you like that....... and what Hachi did......... how many people would ever do that? None. Dogs are fiercely loyal. Find me a person like that....... You can't.

Yesterday church was wonderful. As always. Four baptisms and I love watching those. Hearing the testimonies of what led them to God. Hearing about how life was for them, how bad...... Then God happens. Something no one can explain unless you feel it. I did =D Indescribable and everyone should experience it for themselves.

Okay, I gotta go to the gym .......... I'm looking really good and feeling great!!

Have a fantastic Monday

Lots of Love

One month and one week.

For the first time in a month, my eyes are open. One month and one week to be exact.

For anyone who has been unlucky enough to weather the storm of a broken heart.......They should know all to well of what I am going to describe.

For a full month and one week a hurricane was upon me. The storm made worse by the fact that only I could see it. Only I could hear and feel it. People trying to help me through it. Help me weather it....But, how can you help something you can't see, feel or hear?

My life literally felt like it was crumbling around me. You see the videos on TV about "hurricane" clean up. That is what it was like for me today walking into my bedroom.

At first glance into my room.....Beginning the clean up of what was my life for one month and one week. Being back in the land of the living. Being someone different..... The damage of what is around me was very moving and yet so very hard to clean up. I saw things. I saw life for the first time in one month and one week.

It's as if time stopped inside of me. I look around my room and I get a close up view of the force of the storm. I didn't know it was that bad. A month and week ago the clock on my wall ticked away. The pendulum swung back, forth, back, forth. Tap, tap, tap. A sign to me that although it felt as time had stopped,it was indeed moving forward.

At some point during my one month and one week, the clock stopped working. One day at 4:55. Where there was once noise, now silence. Proof that time, for me, really did stop. Hearing the tapping of the clock made time real for me. Not hearing it made it real to me that my life had stopped.

Kleenex littered my floor. The "new" me, the"strong" me agreed it was time to start cleaning them up. One by one I picked them up. Remembering that for one month and one week, I cried enough for a lifetime. Remembering for one month and one week, my heart was indeed broken. Every thought, every memory, every word said lay within those Kleenex on the floor. Every tear shed on them a reminder that it really happened.

The digital alarm clock to my left........ I must've noticed a million times through tear filled eyes that the plug was almost out of the wall. I would sit and stare at it for hours while crying. It was like a focal point for me. I wasn't strong enough to put one foot in front of the other, go to that side of the room and plug it in. The "new" me the "strong" me plugged it in.

My sheets had not been washed in one month and one week. They also are filled with my tears and heartbreak. As I look at them crumpled up, it makes me sad. I look at them as if someone else were laying in them crying. It takes alot for me to realize, it was indeed me. I want to pick that girl up who is in that bed and hug her. I want to tell her that I love her and tell her don't worry, in one month and one week her heart won't hurt anymore. I want to wipe away her tears and just hold her for one month and one week.

I was like a woman who was trapped in that room..... Trapped is a bad choice of words. I was a woman waiting in a cocoon. Slowly peeling away at the inside to get out. Some days I didn't make any progress, some days I tore through layers. I'm out. I'm new. I'm a butterfly. I'm free.

I not so patiently waited and cried. I really don't know what I was waiting for. I only know I waited and God delivered me from the horrendous heartache that was bestowed upon me. The heartache I placed upon myself.

It was so odd cleaning all this stuff up as "me" in the now. The broken clock is still stopped. I may not fix it for awhile. I need that reminder of who that girl in the bed was, so I know to send that girl who is inside of me love. The calendar on my left shows me, time didn't stop. So, who needs the clock. One month and one week has passed.

If anyone has a magic number of how long a broken heart will last. Mine was one month and one week.

Today, I wake up and as I said in a post earlier in the week, something happened. It was my first experience of Divine Intervention. I may never share what happened. But, it made me whole. God lifted my pain and I emerged as someone new.

My heart is filled with Joy. I laugh and I smile. My thoughts are my own. I feel happiness I never felt in a lifetime.

I feel at home. My heart no longer searches for that place to call home for God is MY HOME. God is Love. God is everything you need to endure one month and one week of sheer hell.

My bible is next to me. A reminder that without that book, without those words, without MY GOD, I would not have been able to weather that storm.

I read Psalms now as the new "me" I see the wrinkled pages of where tears had fallen from my eyes and sprinkled all over them. More evidence that for one month and one week I was sad. For one month and one week a transformation was occuring.

I can't explain to you how I feel in my heart. I can't explain the burden that was lifted off my chest. I feel my heart beating now, not the pain of nails going through it. Only God could've healed that hurt. If I could see my heart, I would definitely be able to trace the scars all around it. I need them there. I want them there.

I want the reminder of the pain that brought me to my knees for one month and one week... That reminder that gave me a lifetime of happiness with God. What a short amount of time that is in perspective to where I am now. Who I am now.

For the first time in one month and one week I see my daughter without tear filled eyes and I see she has gotten taller. I see her blowing a bubble and the carefree moments a child gets to enjoy.

I continually ask God "What do I do?" "What next?" I become still and listen to that small still voice inside me. "Write" he says. To him I say "I don't know how" That small still voice says "I'll show you"

So....... I write. My words here to share with you..... My one month and one week.

I love my God. I love you guys. I love life.

=) Tuesday afternoon!!

"Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will"... ~ Hope Floats

Wow =) Wow and WOW =)

What a fantastic afternoon!!!

Wow =)

Well, when I'm in my car lately I have been turning off the radio and talking to God. I have heard in church even when I was in the Catholic church about how God answers you, about hearing God's voice, about hearing his answers for you.

The only way I can explain it is you remember those pictures that used to sell big in the 90's where you had to stare at it for a LONG time and then a picture within that picture would pop out?

Well.......... I was stuck on that picture for awhile. I never know what's my inner voice, what my thoughts are and I did NOT understand it at all! I was discouraged because I had no clue what they were talking about.

Today, I FINALLY understood it. Becoming a Christian isn't easy. It is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I'm such a baby at it and I can't wait to mature it in.

As Carol said a few weeks back when the girl in church prayed for me, God speaks through people. I never knew that. I know better now what I need to do. =) As Daniel said "Got to turn and go the right way" All these signs that I ignored, I overlooked...... I was missing some important stuff!! In the gym aside from the laughing Angel and I were doing I was soooo happy, I smiled the whole time =D

I had a fabulous day with Angel. Gym hottie told me I don't need all that exercise, I look fantastic =) I'm down 16.5 lbs today =) I really, really am looking wonderful and feeling it!

I'm soooooooooooooooo excited. This afternoon was just so wonderful..... like at noon, my day went from BLAH to YAY!!!!! =D Maybe one day I'll share what happened, until then it's between me n God ;)

Have a fantastic Tuesday evening


Hope =D

~Lady =)

Tears and the book of Psalms

I can't tell you how many times lately I turn to the book of Psalms. Seems me and David (David in the book of Psalms not my friend) and the others in them have alot in common.

Anyone who suffers cruelly from a broken heart should read Psalms.

The night before last and tonight, I read them and tears fall down my cheeks and fill my pages. I have cried all over the book of Psalms.

My heart hurts and I hear over and over again about how God takes that pain away, I wait patiently for it to go. Seems sometimes it's less, but other times like tonight it's unbearable.

When in church tonight A song came on and we were asked to pray during it. It was so beautiful and all I could ask God was , "Why wasn't I good enough for him" and "Why didn't he love me back" I was just sitting there in church with tears streaming down my face. That pain, that strong pain of someone taking nails and just poking them deeper into my heart. Sometimes that pain is so large it hurts just to breathe in. After the song was over out of the blue here comes my cousin Lindsay and she also has tears running down her face. Life is so hard and God is so good.

I love my family. I love my cousin Lindsay with all my heart. Hugging her made that pain a little more bearable.

Tonight was hard and they talked about showing humility before God and I did. I'm not ashamed to say I hurt. I didn't fight off the tears in a room with hundreds and hundreds of people. I hurt and I cried.

I'm not ashamed to say out of hurt I have said some pretty hurtful things. Hurt and loss are so powerful and hurt so much, especially when you feel that hurt is based on the fact that you just didn't have what it took.

Over all, I just prayed that the pain will go away. No pain is greater than loving someone that doesn't love you back.

I just have to be patient. Til then I will cry with the Psalms, evidence even thousands of years ago pain in the heart was just the same. Nothing invented in all the years takes that pain away. It's a constant through history.

This is where I cried tonight

Pslam 28

1 To you I call, O LORD my Rock;
do not turn a deaf ear to me.
For if you remain silent,
I will be like those who have gone down to the pit.
2 Hear my cry for mercy
as I call to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
toward your Most Holy Place.

3 Do not drag me away with the wicked,
with those who do evil,
who speak cordially with their neighbors
but harbor malice in their hearts.

4 Repay them for their deeds
and for their evil work;
repay them for what their hands have done
and bring back upon them what they deserve.

5 Since they show no regard for the works of the LORD
and what his hands have done,
he will tear them down
and never build them up again.

6 Praise be to the LORD,
for he has heard my cry for mercy.

7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy
and I will give thanks to him in song.

8 The LORD is the strength of his people,
a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.

9 Save your people and bless your inheritance;
be their shepherd and carry them forever.

Happy Sunday Evening

It's Saturday

"Watching you walk out of my life does not make me bitter or cynical about love. But rather makes me realize that if I wanted so much to be with the wrong person how beautiful it will be when the right one comes along.” ~Author Unknown

I sit here after one of the roughest nights I have had. I don't realize why I can't move forward. He is. Why can't I talk to these guys who want to talk to me......He's moved on with other people. Why can't I?

I think and think and think about what it is, why can't I move forward. I realize that after everyone, there's always been someone else. Almost immediately. This time, I am trying to heal from all the past and don't want anyone at all.

Rebound relationships do not work.

I think I get scared sometimes that I'll keep wanting no one. I don't trust men. Not anymore.

Anyways one day closer to finding myself. Having a ceremonial burning of my WoW discs later or maybe a hammer taking to them. Either way they are going to a slow death.

Have a wonderful Saturday.

If you have an hour, will you not improve that hour, instead of idling it away?
Lord Chesterfield

ARGH Today I am feeling all those hours of not being idle. Every day this week except Wednesday I have gone to the gym 2 times a day. Tonight, I did NOT want to go, but I pushed through and forced myself.

I'm spring cleaning and just enjoying the quiet.

Happy Friday Everyone

Love you lots! <3

Thursday Evening =D

Joy is a flower that blooms when you do. ~Author Unknown

I LOVE today =D!!! My morning went great, Juan got up for school and we were out the door, no fussing or fighting!

Angel met me at the gym and we worked out for 2.5 hours this morning. I loved seeing her and I have missed her so much. We used to see each other every day in hair school, so I'm glad to have her back in my life.

I came home, ate lunch, got the kids and went back to the gym for another 1.5 hours. Savannah got here and we have laughed and danced.

I have such joy in my heart and I'm so glad that all the anger has passed. That was a storm I never want to weather again.

I taped this Psalm over my headboard it's Psalm 4
4 In your anger do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.

I need to practice being silent. That's my big, biggggg one. I don't want to forget it and it's probably the hardest thing for me. When I am angry, be silent.

Happy Thursday

Love you guys

Hi HI Hiiiii!!! =D It's Tuesday!

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!!

Went to the gym and I lost 10 lbs!! =D That's in hmm 8 days? Going for 4 hrs a day probably is doing alot of good.

I wasn't able to do my full work out this morning, so I'm getting ready for community groups now and then heading there before I have to go to Curls.

It's not a matter of "if" It's a matter of "when"

I've never been so determined in all my life to keep pushing through.

Happy Day

"The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for."

~Maureen Dowd~

=D I think that says it all. I'm really proud of myself, I haven't played WoW in weeks. I have had offers to buy my account, friends have asked if they could have it.... I was really on the fence about what to do with it. I still had a slight hesitation of "going back or not"

After praying, thinking, etc.........Well, I got my sign last night. I cried for a brief bit and then laughed. Quite hard. I don't belong there anymore and talk about perfect timing. I thank God for making it so easy to see. The pure brilliance of timing was for sure a huge, huge sign!

The crying was over almost as soon as it started and like I said I laughed and laughed. God has a sense of humor for sure =)

I really like not playing anymore. I'm liking so much who I am becoming. I have lost so much weight and it keeps falling off. I'm not taking crap, I'm laughing, I'm getting out of the house, forming a life.
Soooooo....... It's gone. I'm NOT going back and I'm very happy about that.

Yesterday I noticed something. About my eyes.

My eyes tell everything about me. I looked over pics of the last few months and my eyes looked so sad. Kyle told me that when I'm sad my eye lose that sparkle, but when I'm happy you can see a twinkle in my eye. That's true and I can see it in my pics. Well, I took some the other day when I was doing my make up check for my date and I have my twinkle back.

I have a busy day and I'm going to spend a few hours at the gym. Working on myself =)

Still LOLing about last night..... Ah! God loves me. He really, really loves me. I love him too <3

<3 Perfect timing

Have a wonderful Monday.

I love you guys!!
