We moved!

Jeremiah 29:11-13 ESV For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. We Moved! It has officially been a year since we moved from Tallahassee to Orlando and the moved has been.....well, interesting is the best way to describe the experience so far! We prayed and God answered, we moved and Satan tested, we prayed more and God allowed us to get through the storm. Though small compared to all of the things that we could have gone through, it wasn't fun! We have been super blessed with an awesome church and church family here and this year we've gotten more involved....I know, it's only the beginning of the year, but we went in with an attitude to serve and become a part of our church community and for the first time since we've been here when I mention "my church family" I am no longer just talking about the ones that we left in Tallahassee! Anyway, it's been awhile since I posted, but I plan to do it more! Until next time, remember that God is good even when we're facing storms :-)

Or at least i want to be. I have been getting up early for the past few mornings and the children and i have been jogging our hearts out...OK, so less than a mile with an occasional walking break here and there, but nonetheless it's a start! Anyway, this walk/run thing has given me a new motivation and man those endorphins are pretty darn awesome! I have remained happy, cool, calm, and collected during some pretty intense times, like when i realized that my two year old was wearing my nail polish on her LIPS! So, maybe that was more of the fact that it was non-toxic and after a few minutes on the phone with poison control, but i didn't have a heart attack and I'll contribute that to my new hobby...running! Today once the Hubs got in from work i actually ran alone and NONSTOP! He was pretty impressed and i felt so good that the numbness in my legs almost went unnoticed. Had it not been for the fact that i had to use them to walk here and there, i am pretty sure i would not have noticed at all. Overall, its been a pretty good experience so far and I'm actually thinking of trying a hand at running a marathon...that's in the far future for right now! I have other things on my plate for right now so, I'll just run for the release of that great natural high!

So, yesterday while i was somewhere in between motivation and procrastination i remembered my beautiful blog that has been getting the least of my attention. As i search numerous blogs, read amazing posts by other realtors, i seem less and less enthused about writing my own. The same girl that used to journal faithfully is hiding from what i love doing.
In my moment of clarity i realized that if i was going to blog faithfully it would focus more on my everyday life and the "everyday" things that occur in how i deal with children fighting over who will get the chocolate chip muffin with the most chocolate chips <---- Well, in this situation i generally just eat it myself to be fair ;-D
I love writing and i love stories...i have a million since my life always plays out like a book. So, if you know anything about me then you already know that my profession is real estate and i love it but my life is my God/family......I'm just learning how to manage it and so far it's all trial and error!

He never fails

Ecclesiastes 4:13 Better is a poor and wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.

My Life

Has your child ever made you realize that you've said too much? Well, mine have and I've yet to learn my lesson after four. As usual the day started off perfectly, We'd prayed and I'd put the devil back into his placed before he'd had a chance to get started! My armor was on and i was ready for my beautiful day! And just like that..."I missed your party because my mom didn't have any money to buy you a present", says my child to her classmate as me and a million other parents walk our children to their classes! I could have fallen to the floor and lie there like a doormat for the rest of that day! So, that Saturday I'd been running errands and the party was that afternoon. As you all know, I'm a Realtor and in the words of a friend of mine (whose also a Realtor) "sometimes my family's rich and sometimes we're poor"! For me, my family's always somewhere in between! One consistent income, four children, everyday can do the math! Anyway, after we'd been grocery shopping and paying bills, i checked the account and thought (apparently out loud), "We'll skip the party because this money has to last until hubby gets paid again"! My daughter wasn't too disappointed...i thought! We headed to the park, had ice cream at home, etc. and when that Monday rolled around i found out that my little angel (HA) may have been holding a grudge and waiting to shame her mother...OK, maybe not intentionally! Here i am in the flesh! I've never liked masks or having to pretend to be something that I'm not but, doggone children find the perfect moment to say the darnedest things. This happened last year and let's just say that i have a testimony worth sharing about my family's financial situation last year but, that's another post! God has always been good to us and has always showed himself when we least expected it! When i started writing this November 2009 i didn't publish it for fear of not wanting to "come off wrong" to the public...I'm in an image business! Today after i began reading it again i remembered that i was created in God's image and as long as you see him when you see me, nothing else matters! There's always someone that needs to hear that "I've been there before" story and I truly have been there before and it's not easy to always trust in your faith in God when you have the enemy coming at you from every angle but, i tell you that God hasn't failed me yet! Take a look at Job. It may seem bad now or you may be wondering why you're visiting the place that you're visiting. Just remember, that every testimony began with a test! GOD IS SO GOOD...ALL THE TIME!

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year! It's coming a bit late but none the less i am happy to be here and blessed to see a new year full of great potential. I don't believe in resolutions or changing because of the year because truly real change can occur at anytime, however, i always seek personal growth and expect to be better this year than last. Now, with that i must admit that i am off to a slow start because personal growth in my career was first on my list but winter blues [the it's too cold to leave the house blues] along with cold season catching up to my children is making this task very, very difficult! for anyone wondering about having the winter blues in Florida, it was 16 degrees one day last week......need i say more? I am so grateful for all of my family, friends, and friends to come because they made last year a blast and i know that no matter what, as long as i have them this year should be one too! I had a few things change last year and i believe they were great changes; for starters i am now with Keller Williams Realty and i feel like i've breathe a breath of fresh air! I loved my old office and it'll always have a special place in my heart but this office feels like home....can't wait to dig my feet in the sand!!!!!! My husband became co-owner of a computer business and that was a huge milestone b/c he and his partner had been talking about this company since 2005 all i can say is that GOD IS SO GOOD! I have a few projects in the works myself so, keep checking me out! Remember that all things are possible when you put God first in your life. Don't change for the year, change for the better.

God bless,

Too busy for my bible? Time for a little prayer!

My Life

I've Been so busy lately that it seems like it takes all of the strength in me to pick up my bible at the end of the day...funny how even through my tiredness i can manage to get online and post on facebook. I'm wondering if it's that same "force" that causes us to be a little more tired than normal on sunday mornings? I was having a discussion with a friend that mentioned that all of everything breaks loose on sunday while she's getting ready for church: her child (ren) is uncooperative, someone upsets her, something with the house goes wrong, etc. and i began to think, how that could be the story of my life! Last night as i was doing some soul searching and repenting for allowing some of God's alloted time to be taking up by other things, I made a conscious decision to change how i studied my bible alone and the mindset that i have when i'm studying the bible. I thank the Lord each day for my children and the different gifts/talents that he has blessed them with but, i truly thank him for my middle child's love for God and faith....even when i'm feeling worn out mentally, physically, and spiritually that child is like gasoline to a car on "E"! Lately, that has been my fuel which brings me to my point. My pastor recently preached about christians today needing to be seen in a light greater than one's self so much so that we will say, "i'm blessed" when we really need to say, "Please, Pray for me"! So, tonight i'm saying just that and i'll be praying for you all too. God Bless!


I've posted a fun event on my facebook page! If you're in Tallahassee, you should check it out!
