The Shack

I just ordered this book. My husband read it and said it is changing his life. This is alittle bit what this book is about. I really hope everyone goes out and gets this book.

What Is The Shack?

The Shack revolves around Mack (Mackenzie) Philips. Four years before this story begins, Mack’s young daughter, Missy, was abducted during a family vacation. Though her body was never found, the police did find evidence in an abandoned shack to prove that she had been brutally murdered by a notorious serial killer who preyed on young girls. As the story begins, Mack, who has been living in the shadow of his Great Sadness, receives a strange note that is apparently from God. God invites Mack to return to this shack for a get together. Though uncertain, Mack visits the scene of the crime and there has a weekend-long encounter with God, or, more properly, with the godhead.

The Flu

Well the day after Thanksgiving my son had a bad headach and come to find out he has the flu. The the flu started with my youngest. This may sound gross but there throw up and going to the bathroom smell gross. So now she has the flu and I feel like I may be getting the flu. The only people that are left is my middle girl and my husband. My stomach feels weird.

I'm Looking for ways to make money

I am looking for ways to make money staying at home. I find lots of things. There are some that say I need to have a GED witch I do not at this time. It is a long story as to why I did not finish High school. There are alot of business out there where I need to put up money up front. This worries me as if they are real business.
I am not crazy about and do not want to host parties at all. I am not good at it in the first place.
I will pray about this and hopefully God will show me what he wants me to do. If God wants me to do it at all.

On Black Friday all the stores are going to be full of people and even rude and grumpy people and some will even be nasty. I do not need that. Plus with me can't seeing where I am going I know i will need up running into someone that would not enjoy that for sure.

I know that stores will have good deals or at least I hope they will have good deals.
So good Luck for those who want to deal with all o

The Power of the Cross

And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
Colossians 2:13-14

A number of years ago, I had the privilege of having lunch with Billy Graham. I was a bit nervous, and I had all of these questions swimming through my mind.

Finally, I turned to him and said, "If you knew as a younger preacher what you know today, would you emphasize anything more as a younger preacher that you find yourself emphasizing today?"

Without missing a beat, he responded, "I would preach more on the cross and on the blood. That is where the power is."

I took note of that. There's power in the message of the cross, in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

The power of the cross is, for all practical purposes, the message of Scripture. The first book of the Bible, Genesis, clearly speaks of Jesus' life and death. After Satan led Adam and Eve into sin, God judged Satan and said to him, "He [the Messiah] shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel" (Genesis 3:15). This is the first Scripture that actually points to the coming Messiah, who would crush the head of Satan.

The prophet Isaiah spoke of the Suffering Servant who "was wounded for our transgressions . . . and by His stripes we were healed" (Isaiah 53:5).

Throughout the Old Testament, we see glimpses of Jesus Christ. And the New Testament reinforces over and over again this central message that Jesus came to die.

From the very beginning, Jesus' death and resurrection were a part of God's plan. The crucifixion was not an interruption of an otherwise successful ministry. It was all part of God's plan to bring about the redemption of humanity.

Jesus was born to die for our sins. That is the power of the cross.

My blog needs something more

I think my blog needs something more. There is so much on this blog I do not know how to do. So if anyone reads this one. Can you advise me on what it might need. I do not know how to add alot of stuff.

Twitter Moms


I am so thankful for my family. My husband and my 3 wonderful kids Mathew, Elizabeth, Felisha. I know that Thanksgiving is next thursday and I love thanksgiving not just because we are going to eat way to much. Just to spend time with my kids. My kids are going in different directions. Mathew is never home and Elizabeth is always on the go. Elizabeth is doing Cheerleading and now Basketball. It is so hard to keep up with them. Poor Felisha stays home with me. Soon I know that my kids will be out of the house.

The Election is over

Well I have to admit I am so glad that the Election is over with. But I am very sadden by the out come. I am not happy at all that Barack Obama won. I thought that McCain should have one. But i know that God is in charge of it. I just do not trust him. Not because of his color because I do not like for what he stands for. So I will keep praying that he will let God lead him lead this country.

Changed My mind

Well after talking to my husband last night about going to talk to his boss to see if he will hire me. With me going off to the commission in Janurary I think it is best to go to the school then come back and talk to him then. I do not see the point in talking to him right now. After I get back from school I will know more about the technology that I will be able to use. Plus my husband said they should get busier in the spring when i get back. I hope I am making the right decision for myself by waiting.

It is time to add again

Well I have not posted anything here thought it is time again. I have been really thinking about starting my own business my husband kind of gave me the idea. I am a kind of shy person and have not been around many people in my life. My husband has worked at napa for about 17 years so he does know this business. So I am going to call my husband boss tomorrow and see if I can talk with him about how it works to run NAPA. I do hope he is willing to show me the ropes about the business. My one chanllege will be is helping comstumers this part I am not sure How i will do it. I also don't know what i will need technolgoy wise to help me.
I have told my rehab councelor this and she is very negative about it. She said I do not have the skills I need and with being afraid to people. My husband thinks I can get past all of this.
I do want to run my own business I think it will be good for me.
