Honest Scrap Award and my Simple Womans Daybook

Christy Rose from The Secret Life of an American Wife and Mom blessed me with this award. The first time I visited her blog she was at a conference in my home town and I was saying " Wait.....where is this conference? I wanna go..... I want to hear what you are teaching on!!and meet you!!" Well when she got home she shared with us and I learned all about it and even more about her and her family. They are precious and she is used by the Lord in so many ways! Thankyou Christy for this award and in the words of Rosel @ RCUBEs, let us all remember these awards are from Jesus to share amongst each other for HIM and to HIM be the glory!

Bloggers are so amazing! We earnestly come together, pray for each other, encourage one another, help carry each others burdens and make each other laugh, smile and sometimes, yes even cry! It is a blessed world to be a part of and the Lord leads each of us to one another and I will forever be grateful!

I am suppose to share things about me as part of this award but I thought that I could do that best in my daybook along with adding updates and specific prayer requests for my Daddy here! I would pass this on but I see most everyone has received this award and if you haven't please please accept it from me! I love you all!

For Today...June 30, 2009

Outside my window... It is so very hot and humid here in Florida. It has rained just about everyday! It just doesn't rain...there is no sprinkles, it is like a monsoon with the most amazing lightning I have EVER seen!!

I am thinking... how blessed I am! I got to Skype with my husband, stepdaughter and my grandaughter Rylee one and 1/2 weeks since I have seen that sweet baby girl she has......learned to sit up on her own, got her first tooth and is growing like a weed :) It was soooo wonderful to see them via Skype! I am hoping that my Dad doesn't overdo it while my husband and brother are here over the holiday weekend! He is making plans to do this and that and I am praying that he will be HONEST with us and more importantly himself and not try to do ANYTHING when he doesn't feel up to it! Please pray for this!

I am thankful for... my husband coming to Florida for 5 WONDERFUL DAYS!!!

From the kitchen... Well, I have been introduced to Bison! I am loving it! So we will be having Bison Burgers, my husbands famous Fajitas and Bison meatballs and spaghetti just to name a few things for this holiday weekend :) Sorry Clif!

I am wearing... a cute new top I got at the Gap outlet that is right down the street from Dads house and my jean shorts, my hair in a pony tail and my flip-flops

I am husband arrives safely and time goes SLOW while he is here ;)

I am praying... for my brother, I know it will be hard to see my dad and even harder to leave but am so thankful that he gets to be here even if it's only for a few days

Around the house... we are in a routine....Did I tell you my stepmom drinks KONA coffee and orders the beans straight from HAWAII...tell me that isn't the LORD??? HE knew! I get KONA coffee every morning :)as I spend quiet time with the Lord seeking His will for the day ahead, go to mayo, work around the the kids swim and then curl up with dad in his room and watch a movie.

One of my favorite things...seeing Krista (My stepdaughter) and Rylee tonight...I miss them ohhh so much!

A few plans for the rest of the week... going to the airport, dads treatments and then watching my husband and son be pyromaniacs together and shoot off fireworks together! Just spending time together as a family and cherishing every moment!!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

My little cowgirl! We leave Oklahoma and she comes to Florida and sports a cowboy hat.....go figure ;)

Love and Blessings to you all!!

Have a wonderful weekend with Brian...savor every moment. Have fun, Jantz, with those fireworks & please count all fingers & toes when it's over - be SAFE!! Jen, you look fabulous in that hat - I love you all!!!


Congratulations! Glad to know that your hubby would be joining you. Praying that your dad is on his way to his recovery in Jesus' Name. Beautiful cowgirl you showed...Your post is a blessing every time because the Lord's love surely is manifested here and from you and your family. God bless.
Guess the hot weather will not stop you from drinking "kona" every morning. :) I'm posting this while sipping a cup of decaf I love from Ikea. [The A/C is]...

Loren, Thank you so much for the sweet words. I so wish that you would have been able to come to the conference too. Maybe next year.
I hope you have a wonderful time with your husband and that the time goes really slow.
