Oh Joy, Where are you?

images

Do you find joy daily?

Lets be serious.. I am lucky to get through the day with a smile on my face.

I spend my day taking care of my home. It can be a circle – get up – eat breakfast – check my emails-of course Facebook surfing clean for 15 min.- fix lunch – do laundry-rest- make dinner-clean after dinner-try to find time to take a walk-watch a little tv-and get ready for the next day.

It can get boring. My husbands biggest fear when we decided I would be a stay at home maker I would go stir crazy and develop a major case of cabin fever.

I have my days. I have found little things to help. One of them is just take it hour by hour. Routine  is a must and a new life style for me. However, at times I feel I don’t pull my weight around the house. My husband reminds me daily I have a big part in the family dynamics.

I have to search for joy. I know some ladies would love to be in my shoe. We always want the other side. I have worked for 15 years and now I am happy staying at home.

I have to remind myself I deserve joy.  Why? The Bible tells us we need to feel joy in our lives always no matter what you are going through in your life.

1 Thessalonians 16-18

Be joyful always; Pray continually;Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ. 

This is great reinsurance for me. I have found myself feeling not so alone. I talk to Jesus while vacuuming , folding clothes, or while cooking dinner. He is here to help me and I love spending time with Him. I have 8 hours before my teenage gets home so that time is becoming special to me.

I have this wonderful circumstance that came into my life. I am blessed to stay at home and take care of the needs here.

My husband is right – I am a big part of providing for my family.

God led me down this path for a reason.. to find joy in my life… 

1thes5.16-18

 

I will go places !

I am not going to lie. I am brand stinking brand new at this blogging thing. Granted I have journal after journals I have written for years. One day I looked around in the blog world ( thanks to pintrest!). I had a thought ‘hey, I can totally do that!’

I am using my theme towards a Christian mom, wife and your friend next door. Now, I am not saying – I am a novel writer and I do realized there are zillions of blogs out. I guess I want to treat this as my open journal with my fellow readers!

I want this blog to be FUN and I want it to INSPIRE you and I want you to be BLESSED!

My goal is to at least ONE person a day! And I believe if I put this in God’s hands … one day I may have 100’s ( I have small goals right now!)

I will keep post it notes when an idea pops in my mind – so it should be interesting around my house. I already keep bible verses all over!

Garfield can tell you all about that!

Now, off to the post it notes for my next post!

Weekend of fun in the sun.. and heart break

My Kids Are My Purpose Of Love

Weekends with the kids are a precious gift God has blessed me with. I don’t see them as much as I would like. Due to our visitations schudules and how much I work during the week – I find a size of a needle to squeeze them in. It isn’t enough for me. When they are not with me – I feel like  a piece of me is missing. When they are with me.. they show so much love to me. Natalie always wants me to be cuddling with her – holding her hand – she is my lil me. We are getting closer. I don’t want to loose that connection with my daughter. I want her to know how much I love her.

Natalie’s baby motto: Our lil squishy forever

Nicholas is my sweet loving boy. He just randomly runs in the room to give me a kiss. He always wants to be around mommy. He has a lot of love in him. He will be turning 7 this coming month. He is very excited about it. He went to toyrus and made a wish list with 64 items.

Nicholas obsession with lego’s and military.. he always plays with these.. he makes a full movie out of the toys.

I am at the point in my life now where I can afford to take them out and do stuff with them. We went to the movies today to see Men In Black.

Fun in the sun

It is fun doing things with the kids. I know they will remember little things with mommy. We always try to have fun. We had a great weekend of swimming and walking to feed ducks. We got a little sun.. but it makes them look healthy since my son is a ghost. But we had a great weekend.

The bad part of this.. when I drop them off – I do into instant depression. I know I am providing as much as I can with my kids. I am not a full time mommy like I was. Which is a shift for me since I was home with them until they went to school. I raised them since they were babies. Now that they are getting bigger – I feel like I miss on a lot of them. I will be working on a new job idea where it won’t take all the time away from them. I have a plan for the next year that will make us closer. I know God is putting me through this so I can learn to be strong. But during that path of becoming strong – you break a lot.

I just want my kids to grow up knowing how much mommy loves them and I am always here for them no matter what.

Time will show the love I have for them through the years. This is just a glitch for me to overcome some obstacles I have know in life……
