I've been reading the bible for almost a year. It continues to talk about putting down your idols. Do not worship idols.

Which has made me wonder what are "idols" today?

Are they our homes? That seem to be bigger and better than some one else's.

Are they our money?

Our social status?

Our car?

Our computer?

Our phones?

What do we worship in today's world?

What can you not live without?

What comes first in your life?

MDA and Jail

MDA has roped me in and will round me up for Jail next Thursday. 

I have to raise $1600 so 2 kiddos can go to camp. 

Got a note today from the mom of one, brought tears to my eyes, got a goodie bag from another and more tears fell. 

I cry because my daughter is moving to Georgia. These kids (and adults) struggle everyday of their lives and they don't give up and don't sit and bawl because of a move. . . 

So I have gotten after it today on my facebook and so far have raised $620 since last Friday. I have til August 9 to raise the other amount. 

If you feel the need to donate, then reply to me and I will send you the online link to donate money. 

May God bless you today and every day!

The world

Do you ever get to just sit and listen to all the noises around you?

Tonight was one of those nights, I was out watering my new plants and no cars were buzzing down the road.
There was a gentle breeze, crickets, a few birds.

The sky was beautiful.

I thanked God for my world. For Him building it and maintaining it for me, for you. 

I thanked Him for America and the glorious life He has given me. 

Tonight, I thanked God for everything He has given me, and even the stuff He didn't. 

Hugs my friends!

Getting into perspective!

As most of you know from my other blog, KaLynn, my mom passed on a couple of weeks ago. April 6.

She drove me nuts. Ab-so-lute-ly  bonkers. Especially in the past year.

But now that I can't talk to her, I've been miserable. Crying at the sight of a shirt she would like. Crying because I can't talk to her while the boys practice ball. Crying myself to sleep at my desk at work.

This went on for two weeks. Every. Day. Every waking hour. Minute. Nano-second. I was getting to the place I could not function.

Then I got a text message from my Oregon friend, Rob. Her MRI came back clean just a new symptom of fibromyalgia.

The next day, I got a text from my long time friend, LeeLee, that her back surgery seems to have messed up and she is going back to doc today.

Another friend that I talked to at Mom's graveside service, her husband has two more radiation treatments and hopefully he will be done.  He had prostate cancer, stage 4.

A guy that works here,his wife has the same disease Bernie Mack had. She is in constant pain and seems to be in the last stages.

What am I crying for? My mom is in Heaven. My mom is with the Lord. She is not hurting, feeling bad, confused.

In fact she is practically perfect now.

So why am I crying?

I'm crying because I am selfish.

My mom can hear me talk to her.

Just like the Lord can hear me talk to Him.

I needed to be reminded that I need to be back on the prayer train for the people who need it.

Stop looking at me, I am fine. Mom is fine.

Some aren't so lucky.

My Father showed me how blessed Mom is. I am.

How blessed are you?

I have gotten so bogged down reading the Bible. Am in Leviticus and it is a hard book, to read and to understand.

I think I would never have made it. I screw up hourly, minute by minute, I wouldn't have enough animals to sacrifice!

I think  Wow, Jesus died for me.

HE is all those sacrifices.

He went though things I cannot fathom.




and even more pain.

Pain I can not in my wildest dreams

Because He loved me.

Because God love me.

Today I wonder, was I worth it?
