Amparo, praying for GOD's peace to surround you as you are dealing with so many things in your life this week. My kids are all grown and I still get concerned for their safety... But when I do, the Holy Spirit reminds me that I placed each child in His hands many years ago and although He doesn't promise their lives will be problem-free, He has promised that He will never let any of them go. That sustains me and calms my concerns.

It must be so difficult to celebrate your birthday and the loss of your brother on the same day. I cannot imagine what that would be like, but remember that - as you said - one day you will have that glorious reunion with him ! Have you ever made a scrapbook page or album about your brother? If not, this might help you focus on the happy and lovley memories, rather than on the sadness of his passing. If that seems like too much of a project at this time, you could always just write a letter or make a list, full of all the best things about your brother than you can think of. Celebrate the good and cast away the sad.

What kind of work does your hubby do, that it takes him away from home? My Hubby goes out of state several times a year (for 5 or more days at a time) and it does get lonely without him here, but on the other hand, it frees me up to be able to do some things that I don't get a chance to do when he's here! Nothing awful or "bad" - but I can stay up as late as I want, watch whatever TV shows I like, eat certain foods/meals that he doesn't care for, etc. ! But I understand that your hubby being gone is happening at the same time that Lesseth is gone and the birthday/annivesary is this week as well. Will be praying for GOD to be your Husband while hubby is away - that He will keep you all safe and protected during this time and that hubby will return home safe and sound!

Blessings on you, dear Amparo - remember we're always here for you !

Deborah - Happy Anniversary ! Hope you had a lovely celebration !

'Red - travel mercies as you head to your parents and for the time that you will be gone. Check in when you can, Hon !

Kim - don't feel bad, as I certainly have had my share of computer glitches as well ! Sooo frustrating! I certainly appreciate having my computer and the internet, but it sure adds to my stress level sometimes !

DeAnna - all the info for the CJs sounds good to me, but I didn't notice if there was a time limit involved (ie: send the album to the next person within 10 days after receiving it)? I'll PM you with my e-mail address and phone numbers...

Blessings to all - have a fabulous Thursday !!

LiC - kim

"Good morning, good morning, good morning. It's time to rise and shine."

Sorry, that's been going through my head all morning. Anybody else know that song? It's from a program that I think my sister did way back. That's the only part of the song I know too. So sad. My mom used to sing it in the morning too to get us up. I hated it or I hated that fact that she was so chipper in the morning. Now God has graced daily with one of those in my house. My oldest is the biggest morning person and doesn't stop talking the whole time. Drives me nuts and tests my patience and attitude every morning.

Anyway, I think I'm rambling now.

Have a great day today girls. I'm off to have tea and Bible Study this morning.

Ladies, I could use some prayers. I lost my job today and I have some major decisions to make. I need God's guidance like never before right now.



Amy~ I will continue to pray for you. What happend sweetie?



Remember when they were wanting me to illegally doctor their books to get away with tax evasion? Well, they had been threatening to fire me ever since then because I refused. Now, with me being sick and had to be out, they kind of used that as an excuse to start looking for a replacement. I saw an ad for my job online and confronted them about it. They told me that they weren't sure if I was coming back or not after being in the hospital and that we really didn't see eye to eye on how the business should run (illegally in their eyes evidently), etc etc. So, I went in Monday night and got my things, left the ad on my desk with a note that I couldn't do it anymore and my keys. Now, I need to decide whether to report them to the IRS because they have been filing fake taxes for years and are hiring illegal aliens.

Amparo, you are in my prayers my friend. I know how you feel as I lost my dad and he was suffering so much. But PRAISE GOD he accepted Christ before he passed so that I know we will be reunited again. I am so glad you also have that peace within you with your brother.

Kim~ Oh my you dont know how much those word you said mean to me and made my heart smile:) my brothers anaversary is not the same day of my b-day but 10 days after but still it could be the same day it feels that way sometimes. I have done a LO on my brother and it helped me ALOT. I was feeling so sad and missing him so much one day that I just kicked out the LO about him. It is kinda a depressing onebut it helped me ALOT deal with things.

My hubby Luis is a electrician and the company he works for is running thin on work. He NEVER took any work that required him to stay the night anywhere even if it was for a single night. He likes to be home with us. HOWEveR since work is slow its either work out of town or don't work. He is a traffic signal specialist and wires up signal lights. So he is working about 3 hours away. He only has about another 3 months of work there and the next job he has is closer to home. I thank GOD that he is working. You are so right tho. Although I miss him so much it does able me to eat certain things, stay up late and such so that part is nice. AND I get all the kisses from the girls. LOL!

I am so looking forward to picking up Lesseth from camp tomorrow. I have missed her so much and this little trip has made me think so much about her and how much she does here. She helps so much with her sisters and is so responsible.

Again Kim thanks so much for taking the time and writing those kind words. Thanks for your prayers.

Wow two posts in one day! The sky may fall!!!
Seriously I need your prayers, In the next 30 days I have a new house to finish painting and decorating and moving into. My daughters wedding which since I'm a caterer I'm doing all the food, flowers, decorating & everything else for. It is short notice because my future son in law will be deploying to Kuwait in August. Many and numerous church events I am involved in and feeling overwhelmed.
Thanks
Love in Christ,
Pam

Glad to know my words brought some brightness to your day, Hon -- thanks too, for sharing about your husband's job with us -- I certainly didn't mean to be nosy when I asked the question ! My own Hubby is a roofing contractor (we own our own company) and when he goes out of state, it is to attend business conferences and training seminars. I know you must miss your hubby very much, but what a blessing that he's able to find work - even if it's not too close to home. God jobs are so difficult to find nowadays.

Blessings on your reunion with Lesseth tomorrow - I know you both will be so happy to be together again. She sounds like a loving young lady and a joy to be around ! I'm sure her sisters will enjoy having her home again, too!

I'm glad you were able to find some comfort in making the LO for your brother, Hon -- I actually need to do this myself, for my parents. My mother has been gone for over 14 years and I haven't yet made any pages for her; my father passed away last August and I haven't made any pages for him, yet, either... Soon, though.

Have wonderful Friday, Amparo

Hugs to you, Pam -- I was in similar shoes two years ago when our DD got married! Everything seemed to be happening all at once - the wedding, other family issues, church activities/responsibiliti es, helping in our family's business, mother-in-law's surgery and recuperation in our home... I was ready to run away from home :crazy: !!

Thankfully, the grace of GOD got me through it all without pulling my hair out or abandoning my family ...

Praying the Lord will order your steps and give you the strength and wisdom - and JOY - to get through these challenging times, Hon.

Please keep in touch when you can and let us kno how everything's going for you !

Oh my, Amy -- this sounds like something from a movie or novel! Praise GOD that you are now away from that difficult environment. Praying the Lord will show you what steps to take regarding the IRS. My first reaction would be to report them, but then if they found out, there might be repercussions. Also, it's important to be sure any reporting would be done for the right reasons (not to imply that you would do otherwise). Wait for His answer and direction - praying He will show you the way soon.

Keep us posted on how things are going, Hon --

Thanks Kim. That is why I am waiting until my head clears and I have had plenty of time to pray on it until I make my decisions. My Dh wanted me to report them right away. Actually, he wanted me to report them immediately when I found out and they threatened to fire me when I wouldn't doctor the books. I held off, because I am not one for confrontation. We will see which way the Lord leads me. I just hate to see people get away with illegal activity.

Happy Birthday Amparo!!!!!

Thanks so much for the prayers and uplifting words about my dental "issue". Would you believe I went there for my appointment and was told that I was supposed to be at another office? The lady left that part out when I made the appointment! So, I will be returning again! ERRRRR!!!

On another note, thanks for the wishes for my 14th anniversary Here's a picture of my hubby with me. Would love to hear your comments on this one.

God bless all of you for being who you are!
