I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Everything’s gonna be alright

on September 22, 2010

I am doing okay. God has really been clear to show me His peace. When I start to dwell or get in the “this is not fair” frame of mind, a Bible verse will pop in my head, and I will know that this is going to be okay. One thing that has really stayed with me is That I don’t have to UNDERSTAND the reason, to KNOW there is a reason. God’s plan is ALWAYS perfect.

Going to start the whole weight-loss thing. I really would like to get into a better place with that. Started on the diet today. Watched the Biggest Loser and felt inspired to do 500 steps on the board. I figured if they could do it, I could definately do it. Thought about quitting after 250, but pushed my way through. Legs are definately tingling, but that’s a good thing, right?

We played Doggy-pile with the kids. They were hilarious. Even Adreya would lay on the floor for Tyler and Maddy to lay on top of her and then say Mommy (or Daddy) “Get Doggy Pile”. She’s gonna be a tough one!

Five special blessings to me today: Kids that make me laugh, Encouragement that can come from anywhere, God’s peace, A mind that is full of misc. Bible verses that pop up just when I need them, a Church Family that I can count on!

Hope your day is more blessed than mine!

    From my favorite singer/songwriter…(It’s even better when you can hear her sing it.)

    “It’s Going To Be Alright” by Sara Groves

    It’s going to be alright
    It’s going to be alright

    I can tell by your eyes that you’re not getting any sleep
    And you try to rise above it, but feel you’re sinking in too deep
    Oh, oh I believe, I believe that

    It’s going to be alright
    It’s going to be alright

    I believe you’ll outlive this pain in you heart
    And you’ll gain such a strength from what is tearing you apart
    Oh, oh I believe I believe that

    It’s going to be alright
    It’s going to be alright

    When some time has past us, and the story if retold
    It will mirror the strength and the courage in your soul

    Oh, oh, I believe I believe,
    I believe
    I believe

    I did not come here to offer you cliche’s
    I will not pretend to know of all your pain
    Just when you cannot, then I will hold out faith, for you

    It’s going to be alright
    It’s going to be alright
