Thankfulness & Sharing

Noteful November

This month seems like so many things are going on that I am so thankful for the Month of Thankfulness, to remind me of how much i HAVE to be thankful for.

Of course there are the usuals, house, food, warmth, family, all that stuff i am so very thankful for, and really i need to remember to be thankful for every single day of my life.

But something i think i am MOST forgetful about is to be thankful for Jesus Christ and His blood that washed my sins clear so i can one day live with Him again.

Our pastor this weekend gave an amazing sermon, about giving and why we NEED to give. The jest of  it talks about how when we generously give (not just money but our time, services, love, etc)is when we are most like God. I don't know about you but I know I try to be like my sweet Lord but fall so short. Two fellow bloggers are "hosting" a way for us to do this this month and season. Please check them out.

 Mandy at Biblical Homemaking is giving us a way to give of ourselves, and the Holy Spirit this season here .  I truely truely believe that when we LIVE like Jesus, we are so blessed and people will see those blessings (i'm not talking monetary altho i've know that to happen also) they see our lives and how they are different and they WANT to know what is different about us and WHAT is happening in our lives and that leads to the Lord. His word, His kingdom, His grace, His wisdom - His EVERYTHING -  He is the I AM! I'm signed up for this and I hope that you will at least think about it, and if you aren't comfortable inviting someone into your home, take it to shut ins or something!

Abbie at Five Days Five Ways is giving us a way to give of ourselves, our talents (possibly) and to connect with people through education to Jesus Christ here . This is one thing that is so very close to my heart, children. It saddens me to think of children without parents, how does one learn to function? It's through these AMAZING pastors and their families that love Jesus and these kids. Isn't it amazing that just $5,000.00 can build a classroom AND bring Jesus to so many little hearts! "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6 is true, my son went to a private Christian based MDO and Pre-K and when he got to regular school, he CRAVED that Godly influence there daily (we have now installed a daily bible class at HIS request at home).If we reach these little children, they will reach others and improve their lives with the tools that He has given, through education AND Christ!

All the Glory be to God! and as my sweet boy, cor sayd "Sharing IS caring!"

In His Wisdom & Love,

Five Things Thursday Linky Party {#5}—My Favorite Color

Five Things Thursday Linky Party {#5}—My Favorite Color

This is gonna be a skimpy one, I'm still trying to figure out all this schedule stuff b/t working, kindergarten, volunteering, taekwondo and normal house/mommy/wife stuff. WHY were we created to need more than 4 hrs of sleep? Seriously I could get just about everything done daily if i didn't NEED 7 hrs to function with a nasty attitude and 8-9 to be cheerful working. And everyone   ahem, I, would like to be the cheerful worker.

It's that time again for Linky Party 5 things over here @

and well i'm a day late and a dollar short (isn't that how it always goes?!) i digress, on with the post:

have you guessed my favorite color by now? if not i'll give you a hint - you're looking at it, lol!!

here are some things that i absolutely luv to find in this color and any shade is great to me:

no i do not have a sweet lil baby to wear this, but i seem to have an issue with knowing sizes of friend's babies so i'm gonna list this one to sale as i'm about 6 months too late for my friends sweet baby girl to wear.

these are one of my most comfortable pairs of shoes i own, i have no idea if it is because they are purple or coach. i thrifted these for $7 and let me tell you they have almost had me buy full retail $149 shoes because of the comfort they offer. but my thrifter soul would never recover from that trauma!

i totally <3 (don't u wish they had emoticons on here? i surely do!) this shirt the back is like terry cloth fabric and the front is like a woven linen that is rusched. its almost PJ comfortable - u know what i'm talking about?! and it was thrifted for $4 (dats right four smackeroos, deniros, 16 quarters (ooooo i like that makes it sound like an even better deal)) can one even have paranthesis within a paranthesis??

and jewels hello my darlings, purple AND jewels i think i just died and went to heaven! this counts for two. i just lurve my medillion necklace and that gallery worthy piece to the left is courtesy of my sweet sweet boy from MDO for Mothers Day last year. He "put lots of purple beads because i know you luv purple but there werent any shiny or glitter purple beads." *squishy heart*

Yes that is my 5 Linky party post (late) sorry! Hope y'all have a wonderful blessed weekend!

In His Luv and Wisdom,
