Have you ever noticed that Elijah's Mom is Crazy?

Have a Grandma who just won't use her electric wheelchair??
All you have to do is show her how fun it is! Just grab your kid and show her how it's done. She'll be scooting along in no time!

Count Your Blessings

Some more things I am currently especially thankful for.

*I fit in my clothes.
*Two used free cell phones!!
*Joseph's 20/20 vision.
*Money Saving Mom website.
*John & Heather's upcoming SC visit.
*Theology-accurate music. (Few things are better.)
*Little overalls for my little girl. (Few things are cuter.)
*A wonderful marriage.
*New Friends that we have prayed for God to bring into our lives.
*Joseph lets me buy things to decorate the house.
*Windows open weather.
Joseph recently purchased the album "To Be Like Jesus" (Sorry my italics aren't working.) We got it for Isabella, but it has already made me cry and convicted me multiple times. I praise God for giving these musicians the ability to creatively communicate God's truth.

Here are a few excerpts that I have benefited from.


Your word tells me I have a need to watch out for my soul.
And everyday it's clear to me, I need your self-control.
My hands and feet are quick to move, before I even know,
So Jesus make me more like you, and give me self-control.

When I say words I should not speak, and hurt the ones I know,
On the mornings when I'd rather sleep,
I need your self-control...

Lord I'm needy, so I'm pleading,
Come and fill me,
Help me to be self-controlled.


Peace, you give me peace.
When the storms come, and I'm afraid.
Peace, you give me peace.
When I trust in the words You say.
You give me peace.

If you can calm the sea,
Then you can comfort me.
If winds obey Your voice,
Why should I fear their noise?

And though my eyes can't see, I know You're with me.
