With your help we might be able to overturn this presidential election yet. Here is a link to a petition for Obama to present an authentic birth certificate which he has failed to do. If he is not a natural born citizen he would not be elegible to be our president. Pass this on to everyone your know and more.

Motherhood was never promised to be easy, I never expected it too be but does it have to be so hard. Like every mom I know, it is a continual learning process, but there are those who make it seem so easy. I have to admit I am not very organized, I have struggled with this my whole life. My lack of organized does not come from my mom, or dad. They both always seemed to have it together, and could follow a list and get it done but me, you give me a list and I just about hyperventilate. I feel so much pressure that I probably won't be able to accomplish much on the list, or I start one thing and the will begin another before one is complete. It must be ADD. I have said this to say this, since I can't be organized I am learning to delegate. Maybe if I teach my kids how to do the things I struggle with at least someone will get it done or it will free me up to do those things I don't always have time to get too. For instance, Megan has shown a real interest in doing laundry, she likes to load the washing machine and dryer and I am teaching her how much soap and softner to put in. She is being very handy at this. It is amazing how much something little like that helps me out. The girls also like to clean the bathroom, well I say go at it. Tonight, Emily and Alex, washed some of the dishes for me and put them in the dishwasher. Yes there was squabbling involved but they did make a dent in the pile of dishes for me. Megan, cleaned her room(without arguing) and swept it, what a huge help this was. I must say that the Lord is helping me in how to raise my children and teach them the necessary things in life. I also want them to learn the importance of obedience and serving Jesus. This learning process, for everyone involved, is not easy. It has its ups and downs, and rough spots throughout any given day, but I know that putting my trust in the Lord will keep me going and he will give me the necessary tools to teach my children.

Alex always has something funny to say, but there are times when he is more profoundly funny.
This morning we were walking up from the basement and Alex commented on how the basement needed cleaned(an on going project), and I agreed with him. he quickly toldme that he is not a cleaner. I laughed and almost asked him what he was, but decided to wait and see what he would say. After a few moments he looked at me and said, "i'm a player". Yes he is, he plays harder than any child I know. He would go out to ride his bike as soon as its light outside if he was aloud. He is constantly using his imagination in his play. Yes,my little boy is a player, but if I have anything to do with it, he will be a cleaner too.

Here is our new truck. We are all so excited to get it. I do want thank God for this truck, my husband looked high and low to find the right one. He had to drive about 280 miles one way to get it, but it was worth it. I am so thankful that we now have a more dependable car to drive, our other one always kept us guessing.

Another election has come and gone and many are still in shock at the outcome. When I heard the news that night my stomach felt sick, the future began to look bleak. So many people voted blindly not really knowing who this man is or what he represents. I do have one assurance and that is God is still running this world. He has not left us alone. At just the mention of his name he is there to comfort and guide us in the days ahead. I am so thankful that God knows exactly what he is doing. We can simply put our hand in his and he will lead the way.

Driving down the expressway they sat their discussing the strange gray haze hanging over the city, if only their eyes could see what that cloud held, fear would have overtaken them.
Hoards of angry and petulant imps flew over the city, their presence so thick that a gray cloud could be seen by those who beheld it. The world was watching this great nation, another election day was here and Satan was working hard to get his man in the White House. One who would be in a position to change the very moral values of legislation, beginning a new era. An era of darkness for those who opposed evil. These evil beings flew in and out of polling stations, even having the audacity to follow many into the voting booth itself, whispering into the ears of many suggestive thoughts of changing there mind on who to vote for. Telling lies and giving them visions of granduer if this man, who appeared so smooth and promising, was the next leader of the country they loved. So many were already fooled into thinking he would save this country from utter ruin.
Another vision this couple could behold would bring them comfort, if only their eyes could be opened to see beyond the unseen.
Millions, maybe even billions of glorified beings were hovering about sheilding the righteous from evil, it was at every turn. The Son, who is the light of the world, was mounted on his pure white stead, brandishing the Sword of Truth, The Holy Word of God, his father. The evil beings did not dare approach, if they came to close to his presence they were forced by his power to acknowledge his as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. They knew they were allowed out of the fiery pit by his own permission. He is all powerful, and in complete control, there is nothing he has not planned to the most perfect detail. The promised Holy Spirit was felt by the righteous as they voted according to the will of God, trying to keep the voice of evil from leading their country to ruin. Heavenly beings gaurded them from the the attacks and screams of satans forces. Satan himself was not on the scene he was hiding in a cave, in a far east corner of the world. The presence of the Almighty was too strong, he could even feel it now just thinking about. His thoughts turned proud and haughty when he thought of how he would be the conqueror, he would win the battle, the war, entire thing. He started lauphing at the visions he had of Jesus cowering before him, before he killed him once and for all. All of a sudden a bright light shown in the cave, so bright it blinded him with its pureness. The Presence was there, the one who made turned him into a sniveling, whining imp. He groaned with the force of it. Suddenly a book was put before and it was turned to the last page, the story was there, it spelled it all out, he would lose. In defiance Satan turned away and ran into the desert. Noooo, he screamed, I will win, you will see. Out of knowhere a peircing light touched his right hip, he stumbled and screamed in pain. Limping he continued running trying to get away.
Back in the US the evil demons continued their meddling and the Heavenly host stood by waiting their instructions. Darkness was falling across the city, time was closing in, what would happen, who would win this battle. Prepare your hearts and minds for the decision that could change the way we live, what our freedoms are, but remember God is in control, nothing is out of his control and he will give us grace to go through whatever we must. Pray . . .

Emily and Isaiah, she loves little kids and babies.

Emily, Alex and Jaelyn playing with extra pie crust. What fun. Alex even had some on his forehead.

Here is Megan ready to go to a play with her cousins and grandma. Isn't she pretty, my little girl.
