Big God

So as I was doing my study this morning i came across this:
"Do not allow the enemy to get your focus off of Jesus and His righteousness. Refuse to be controlled by your feelings or circumstances. RISE UP IN FAITH and begin to reign in life through Jesus Christ and His righteousness! i have some good news for you; You don't have to wait! You can start today!"
WOW, that's how do i do that???
i guess it's by just realizing that God is sooo much bigger than i think He is. He is God He created this whole world, He created emotion they are good, as long as you don't live by them. You feel them and ask God why you are having them and you move on. i think that may be it, just remembering to include God in everything, even your emotions! Wow, thanks God for being such a GREAT BIG GOD!
On a side note, we just watched Akeelah and the Bee, have you seen it? It was a nice movie. i was wondering if anyone out there new where/who that quote was by about being fearful of yourself and letting yourself be all the many things you truly are? It was a great quote, see the movie if you haven't it's good, you can borrow it from me, we bought it!
Well have a great day and remember to LIVE BY FAITH!!!

Why Sara Jean's Pies???

Why Sara Jean's Pies??? Well on the Santiam Pass on the way to Eugene there's this little place called Mom's Pies and they had the best pies ever. Well we've been going over there since 1992 when Tina started college and we have stopped there several times. Mom's Pies closed and is for sale now. Every time I drive by, which seems to be a lot lately, I always think of how fun it would be to own a little pies shop and the name I would use would be Sara Jean's Pies. I so enjoy making pies and think some day it would be fun to do it for a living. You know along with my salon that I will one day have, what do you think about the name Rooster Chops??? There is a giant rooster infront of a nursery on my way to church and I absolutely love it. Andy's not to fond of the name, I guess I'll have to work on that one. Well that's it for now so now you know the reason behind the name of this blog!
Be Joyful!

So yesterday at Gabriel's preschool it was Daddy Day. Andy was able to take 1 1/2 off during the middle of the day to go in, yeah, i love that he wants to be involved. So Gabriel wrote up a little thing about his daddy and drew a picture, here's what he wrote,
"My dad is taller than a dirt bike and he is 57 years old. His job is Christmas lights and my favorite thing to do with him is help put up Christmas lights."
So do you think he wrote that a while ago??? When daddy walks in in a Fed Ex uniform that kinda gave away the Christmas light job. Andy said it was really cute one boy wrote that his daddy worked with women, of course all the daddy's had to ask, he was a Les Schawb worker, who knows how the little guys come to their conclusions.
Be Blessed:)

So I finally found my blog again so I can get it updated. I'm still pretty slow at this whole thing. Well life is good, we got a mini van and are excited about that. However when we told the boys we were going to pick it up (last Monday) Ezekiel excitedly shouted out "Is baby sister coming too!" In his mind he had thought that when we got the mini van baby sister would be coming too. I told him that she would be here at the end of the year and that we needed to continually be praying for her.
On the kids note, yesterday in church Marta, the kids teacher for the day, told me to ask them what the Lord had told them during childrens church. They had taken time to wait on the Lord and each child heard something so to make sure and strike up a conversation about it. So on the way to Pilot Butte, yum, we asked what did the Lord speak to you guys this morning? Ezekiel chimed right in and said that the Lord told him that He loves everyone. Gabriel took a minute to sort out his thoughts, not wanting to say what Ezekiel said and then he goes "I know, God told me He was going to be sending Angels to me so I can see them." How cool is that, I know I can take a lesson from that and start asking the Lord to show me things, I know that He wants to but so many times I run using my own faith and not His.
So I ask you, what are you wanting the Lord to show you, in His faith and not your own????
Have a blessed day:)
