Dreaming .....

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.  
Mathew 9:26

 I recently shared with my husband something's .... Well I haven't shared before .... Dreams .... Things I would like to do ! 
     I know it sounds silly, in some ways ... I have a very busy life ! My family unit and our ministry are to priorities over all ! I can't help but feel the talents God has given each of us ... Well he wants us to use them ! 
     So I asked my sweet husband to pray for me ! As I seek God and use those talents ... 
    For years I have found extreme pleasure in sewing !!! It is like therapy for my soul ! Lately I have thrown the idea around of making custom  boutique kids clothing to sell online ... 
     Also praying about finishing my book about my life .... This one is tough for me! It's a scary thought to let people in again! 
    Lastly a tea room ! I would love to host tea parties for special events !!!! 
      I know these are dreams right now ! I am praying the Lord guides my heart !
     I have been a homeschool stay at home Mommy for 17 yrs now ! It's hard to imagine that journey will soon be over ... In just a few short years ! 
My babies are growing up fast !!! I am so proud of the young women they are !!! They will ever know the joy they give me daily .... 
     So for now these are prayers and dreams as I follow the Lords leading .... So I will ask you to do the same ... Pray for me .... It's in those still quite moments of the still mornings .... I love to share my heart .... Not only share but listen for my Dad to speak and guide my foot steps ...
Hope each of you have an amazingly blessed day !

What if Your Blessings Come Through Rain Drops ?!?!

A few years ago Laura Story came out with one of the most amazing a songs ! Blessings ..... It has been my theme song in life for some time .... When I last blogged I announced we were buying our very first home !!!! What a wonderful blessing it has been !!!! We have been in our new home a little over a month now !!! I am so in love with it !!! If some one would have told me 7 years ago all of this would have been possible .... I would have told you ... Well your crazy .... 
    I sure am glad when everything doesn't make sense to me ....God ... Well He already knows the end ! 
    Not long before the decision of moving our van started acting up ... So we had some work done to correct the problem ... Everything was smooth sailing .... So I thought .... About 3 wks ago it seemed the rug had been pulled out from under us ... After a week long visit with my other daughter from another mommy ! My youngest best friend ... I was headed to take her home 3 1/2 hours away ! One hour away from our destination our transmission goes out in my van !!!! 
      You know there is no way to explain the raw emotion I was feeling in my heart right then ... This our family vehicle ! The only one we have !!! Now it's stranded ... I'm not sure what will happen next .... 
    Needles to say that during this storm...
God had An amazing blessing for our family !!! From the moment it happened we never went with out a vehicle !!! Today  God made the way for us to purchase the truck we have been driving !!! I would have never seen that coming ! 
In the ministry I have learned that normal when a blessing comes there will be a storm ... This was a storm ... I learned a lot through this ! 
1- God never makes a mistake 
2- others are watching to see how your going to react 
3- you can't loose faith
4. The teacher is always quite during your test ! 
I can truly say that I handled this so well for me ! Lol I don't do falling apart   well ... However I had such a peace ... When it all happened ! I couldn't help to feel so humbled to have looked back and seen how much I have changed .... 
God has truly changed this girl .... I'm glad that even through the many storms I have faced in the lifetime .... That I have found many blessings come when the rain is the hardest there are blessings in the blessing is richer !!!! 
   So I have decided that when it the hardest ... I need to just dance in the rain...
'Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
