Stress and Strife need faith and prayer

At 4:30 this morning when I woke up I started thinking about writing on here and how my post would go.

Within these couple of years I have found that life in no picnic. I have always known that but when little bits of real life problems start arising in your own life it makes it all the more real.

Getting ready to head to the hospital this morning was okay but I was uneasy I was annoyed with the little things my eye liner getting on my face when I sneezed or the way heat was getting to my stomach.

I went down stairs after getting ready smelling the eggs my mom made me on the table. My dad was washing the dishes his Bible on the table looking like every other morning I can remember but today at this ridiculous hour in the morning was not a normal morning.

This particular morning was the morning my dad was having surgery.

Some people may think we are nuts but we are a close knit family and we want to support our daddy in every way. And if that means getting up at 4:30 to go to the hospital with him thats what we are going to do.

But as I was stressing and fretting in my heart over dad's surgery I knew that God was handling it. He always does. He also reminded me that it could be worse. We have Jeremy with us and we have found a spot in the hospital that is made just for kids but it's also on the center of kids with cancer. And it's been heartbreaking seeing parents coming in this corner asking for cards for food, or fuel and naming their child's illness. My heart is breaking in heart. daddy has cancer and yes it truly makes my life shutter with fear but he is having surgery on it and it's looking real good.

And these families...who knows what hope they have?

I hope beyond hope they have the Lord.

I am so thankful we do.

Following The Leader.

Playing with Jeremy always proves to be a joyous time. I never get sick of his belly laugh or the way he puts his chubby hands on my cheeks or his chubby little arms around my neck.

His dark chocolate eyes looks straight into my heart as he babbles away in my ear.

We have a fun time together and the days I am not tutoring you will find me giving all my attention to Jeremy.

Lately we have been Disney Sing a longs or like Jeremy says "Thing alongs." He loves all the cute Disney music but lately he has been intrigued with Peter Pans "Following the Leader."

I have had that song stuck in my head for days. We follow each other on the trampoline marching to the song as we sing.

This morning I was convinced the birds were singing the song outside my window. :)

As silly as the song is though it has some truth in it.

When I'm with Jeremy I am the leader and he follows what I do.

It's a big responsibility.

I hope I am a good leader for this brother of mine! ;)

Long time no see!

Oh, it has been forever dear friends!!

If you don't follow me on Facebook you may have just thought I drop off the face of this earth! It has been a busy few months for me and these summer months are already making my head spin from the activities crowding my calendar.

School has officially ended for the year. Last week was our four of July firework of activities! Cleaning classrooms, to end of the year field trips, to end of the field days. Of course I dressed all snazzy for the senior banquet and then sneak in late for the high school graduation.

The week before our flurry of end of the year dates marked my seconded kindergarten graduation planned and presented by me! Of course I have to say it was one I never will never forget one of my students had complete stage fright and stood on stage saying nothing the whole time!

Monday started my summer and how did I start you may ask? By tutoring. :) Yes this year me and a great friend of mine will be tutoring a few days a week. It's fun keeps my mind working and fresh in the school realm of things.

Last Friday we were dismissed early after end of the year awards so I went home and pleasurable picnic with my dear almost three year old brother. It was so relaxing and fun. I could of stayed on that blanket munching on chips with him all day if I could.

Of course summer wouldn't be summer without me getting a delightful summer cold I sound like Kerrmit the Frog with bronchitis. My pore throat!

In the last few days I have been thinking of dear saints that I have known forever that are going through hard times I just wanted to bring that up so maybe you could remember these people in prayer.

Also, I am going to reveal something on my blog today that many of you faithful bloggers have been praying for without knowing what my unspoken request is. Today I am going to tell you.

About a year ago my dad had been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He will be getting surgery soon. I will update you more when new information comes but please keep him and our family in your prayers.

Well, it's about time I close this post and get some work done. Please keep looking on here for new posts I am truly going to try to keep up to date on here this summer.

Love you all,
