services are today

Funeral services are today for our friends from church that were killed in the tornado on Sat. night. Daniel will be home at noon for us to go on over to the church-the services are at 2, but with it being for 4 people, we figured we better head on over so we get a seat.
I never realized how much I really miss my daddy until this week. Every thing I feel for Kali that she has to miss by her daddy being gone, I have been there and done that and it is hard. I cried so much this week I don't know if there are any tears left. I am thankful we serve a soveriegn Lord and our friends are not suffering. I have a lot of emotions that I didn't realize I had never dealt with and now that I feel them, I understand why I shoved them back down. I am thankful Kali has a church family/friends to pray for/with her during this time in her life. She is a strong young woman because of the training she had in her home growing up.
God used her family in a mighty way in our community and will now use her to carry on the heritage they gave her.

Glad I didn't go!

I was going to go out of town with my girlfriends on a little getaway, but Logan decided that he didn't want me to miss his 2nd game, so I stayed home. I am so very thankful that I did because Logan had a IN THE PARK HOMERUN!!!!! I was so excited and if I had been gone, I would have been so very sick to have missed it. God knew that I needed to be here.

On a very sad note, there have been at least 17 deaths due to tornados in the area.
We are ok. The deaths are in at least 3 states. Lots of damage/lost homes. Please pray for those people affected.

I am so thankful that I serve a God who has plans for me. While watching a video tonight at church, I was thinking back to almost 11 years ago when a doctor told me I would never be able to have children. I was not a Christian at the time. I became pregnant a few months later. I have had 6 pregnancies and have 4 healthy children. God had a plan for me even when I had no idea who He was and didn't care. I would be nothing with out Him and would not have my amazing husband and children. The point is the video was very moving.

My family is coming over for a BBQ Sunday to celebrate Mother's Day and I have nothing for my mom. Well, I do have pictures. I have to go to the store to pick up ground beef and the fixings for lunch. I hope my nephew and my niece both get to come with thier parents. My nephew lives with his father and my niece lives in a home for troubled teens. She is almost done with the program and will be going home soon.

Well, it is late and I am getting tired, so I will end this very random post for now. I have to fold some wash I did today before bed. Fun times.

I hope all the mothers out there have a great Sunday!
