The Kind of Woman I Want to Be

Authored by worknmom on Fri, Jan 08 2010 - 11:53 AM

My aunt sent me this and I thought it was so cute.  It is a perfect for those of us determined to make our New Year's resolution be just to let "God be the Solution"--striving to trust Him, honor Him and live for Him every single day.   I want to be the kind of woman such that each morning as soon as my feet hit the floor, the devil will ...

The Wow Factor

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Oct 10 2009 - 03:53 PM

I’ve been a Christian most of my life and honestly as a result I don’t always have the “awe” of God that I should have.  The reason?  I just don’t usually take time to think about how amazing and big and powerful and completely “not human” God is.  As humans, we tend to relate to God in His human-ness but there is so much more to Him—far more than ...

Bandages

Authored by worknmom on Tue, Sep 22 2009 - 07:46 PM

My husband had shoulder surgery last week.  I had to change his bandages tonight.  It made me think.  He injured his shoulder by laying over his dirt bike and it was causing him pain and preventing him from being able to do all of the things he is capable of doing.  So, the doctor had to do surgery.  In order to get better, my husband had to go ...

The Power of If

Authored by worknmom on Thu, Sep 03 2009 - 07:30 PM

Then, Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God? (John 11:40 NIV) Here is the setting of the story:  Lazarus has been dead and the tomb for 4 days.  Jesus has arrived “late on the scene” or so everyone thinks.  He asked for the stone to be rolled away from the tomb.  You can imagine the reaction of Mary ...

The Storm

Authored by worknmom on Mon, Aug 31 2009 - 03:10 PM

 16 That evening Jesus’ disciples went down to the shore to wait for him. 17 But as darkness fell and Jesus still hadn’t come back, they got into the boat and headed across the lake toward Capernaum. 18 Soon a gale swept down upon them, and the sea grew very rough. 19 They had rowed three or four miles when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the ...

A Man of His Word

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Aug 29 2009 - 02:54 PM

Have you ever noticed that there are not too many people that you can completely trust?  I mean 100% trust.  You absolutely, without a shadow of doubt know you can believe anything he or she says.  You can trust this person to always tell you truth and that he or she will always do exactly what he says he will do. I have heard many describe that ...

Share Your Thoughts

Authored by worknmom on Thu, Aug 13 2009 - 07:12 PM

I'd like your prayerful thoughts on something.My finances are a mess right now.  My husband and I both work.  We are blessed with jobs that pay well and we have great benefits.  Even so, we are struggling.  We are behind all most everything--including both mortgages.  We have credit card debt, bank loans and oustanding taxes from 2007.  I haven't ...

Weird Dream

Authored by worknmom on Mon, Aug 10 2009 - 05:19 PM

I had this really weird dream the other night.   I was going somewhere.  I got dressed and ready and left to go.  It was like I was in this gigantic motel lobby.  There was burgundy carpet and a huge stairway.  There was a lot of traffic and movement.  Everything was very ornate and it was an enormous building.  At one point it seemed like I was ...

Mother's Day Praize

Authored by worknmom on Fri, May 07 2010 - 05:48 PM

I wrote this today.  I was just about to go into a "no one cares about me on Mother's Day blues" because I cook for all of the grandmothers and Moms.  So, I work harder on Mother's Day than any other.  I was about to feel a little sorry for myself when God touched my heart.  What an honor to prepare a special lunch for my husband's 98 ...

Wandering and Wondering

Authored by worknmom on Mon, Apr 20 2009 - 07:02 PM

No, I didn't drop off the face of the earth!  I've just been "wandering in the desert" for awhile! I had something happen that kind of threw me into a state of confusion and maybe a little depression.  I write a lot. I've written devotions, e-books, homeschool curriculum supplements, poems, songs, the beginning of a book etc.  Most all ...

Change Me...

Authored by worknmom on Fri, Feb 13 2009 - 06:59 PM

I recently completed the 21 day Daniel Fast.  No meat, no bread, no sugar--just fruits, veggies, brown rice and water pretty much.   My purpose in doing the fast was to pray for specific things--mostly regarding my family and particular situations that I want to change.  I was also praying for my finances, my ministry desires, my career desires ...

Gone Camping

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Jan 17 2009 - 06:50 AM

Have you ever been camping?  Like real, tent camping.   My husband and I used to go camping a lot and we've done it a few times with the kids too. You pack up all of this "stuff" that you might need because you won't be at home.  Cooking utensils, groceries, charcoal, grill, laterns, sleeping bags, insect repellent, fire wood, first aid ...

Tell Them I Said, Back Off

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Jan 10 2009 - 11:41 AM

My daughter and her friend went to the mall last night. They were sitting outside of Smoothie King talking when some teenage guys approached them to do a little "flirting". After they guys walked away, the girls sent text messages to the guys they are dating to get their reactions to the "flirters". The guy my daughter is dating sent back a ...

Jesus --fully human and fully God....

Authored by worknmom on Fri, Dec 12 2008 - 07:09 PM

As Christians, we put a lot of focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ--and rightly so.   During the last few weeks, I have been really thinking about His birth and the amazing sacrafice He made just to come to earth as a human! We display our nativity scenes and talk to our children about baby Jesus and how He grew up to a man and ...

Leftovers

Authored by worknmom on Wed, Aug 27 2008 - 07:19 PM

A funny thing happened tonight, I got confused (no big surprise for most who know me) and thought my husband had class tonight.   So, I planned to take the kids out for Mexican.  My husband isn't crazy about our local MExican restaurant but we love it.  I very lovingly (giggle) left him a note that said: Gone to LaFiesta for dinner.  There are ...

Floodlighted

Authored by worknmom on Mon, Aug 25 2008 - 07:41 PM

Have you ever typed a whole blog entry and then accidentally lost it all?!  Just happened to me!  I"ve been typing for 30 minutes and in a flash I lost it all!  Now either that is Satan saying, "I don't want that message out there" or its God saying, "you can do better than that!"  :- ) I prayed as I drove into work today.  ...

Cover Me in Prayer

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Aug 24 2008 - 04:30 PM

For a long time, I've felt that God wants me to start or be involved with a ministry for girls with special focus on those age 11 -13.  It has gently tugged at my heart for a couple of years.  It intensified when my own daughter experienced some of Satan's attacks--and still does today. Lately, especially the last few months, I have had this ...

My Hiding Place

Authored by worknmom on Wed, Aug 20 2008 - 07:40 PM

I was worrying about some things on my way to work this morning.  Big surprise!  I was feeling very burdened, near tears.  Terrible thoughts were racing through my mind.  My chest was tight and my stomach felt sick.  I was praying as a drove, wiping away the occasional tear.Suddenly, I got this "visual".  I pictured in my mind, vividly ...

The Faith Certificate

Authored by worknmom on Tue, Aug 05 2008 - 06:35 PM

I used to believe that you get to this point in your Christian faith where you "get it".  You hit the mark.  You please God.  You reach your Christian potential and then you go on with your life at that level of peace and joy, connected to God while living your life.  That is it.  You become "faith certified" and you are ...

God Speaks at the Beach !

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Aug 02 2008 - 07:11 PM

I was at the beach last week--my favorite place in the world! I REALLY, REALLY needed a vacation too!  I have to admit that I have been burdened, mentally, physcially and spiritually over the last few weeks. I needed to get "away" from it all and find some quiet time with God. (I also read a GREAT book while I was there-- The Shack by ...

What Do You Think?

Authored by worknmom on Sat, Mar 15 2008 - 08:13 AM

What do you think?  That sounds like a simple, innocent question and most of the time it is, but if you really dig deep there can be a lot more to it. What do you think?  What do you think about?  Really, what is on your mind alot?  When nothing else is going on, what pops into your head? What do you think of yourself?  What do you think of others? ...

Shake n' Bake

Authored by worknmom on Sun, Jul 13 2008 - 06:07 AM

Shake n' Bake is a preseasoned coating for chicken.  All you have to do is shake the chicken in the seasoning mix to cover it well, put in the oven and wait for it to get done.  The instructions are simple and are printed right on the box. Me, being who I am, rarely do it just that way.  I, thinking that I can make it better, add a few seasonings ...
