2 In 150 A Mother Daughter Moment

So what do you get a daughter for her 30th Birthday?
Well a decision was made
A girls day
Spa Nope
Hair Nope
Shopping Nope
Something unique and different
of course this isn't for everyone and truthfully I didn't think it would be for me either.
It was something close to our hearts
we took a deep breath
swallowed our fears
clasped hands like Thelma and Louise
and went for it

1 in every 150 children born are diagnosed with Autism
We have 2 in our family
and what blessings they are
This is for them
This is a day Liane and I will never forget

Mini Preview for Vickie

Cupboards are up and painted
still have to paint the wall board and put up trim
and finish the hallway
Oh did I mention I told Steve you can't have a new look to a kitchen if the hallway connecting it doesn't match.
Our new flooring is being installed Oct 8th woohoo!
I will post more pics after all is completed

Quotes Worth Remembering

"A Person that cannot forgive
is a person
that has forgotten
what they have been
forgiven of "

"Jesus forgave us
before we ever said
I'm sorry"

The Kitchen Timer

Have you ever prayed for something and gave up after what you would consider too long of a wait?

On May 19th 2005

my husband tore apart our kitchen, then decided fixing the outside of the house to be more important.

He didn't do that either.

I prayed for patience with his skills

for his stubborn pride

and for

Strength not to hurt him.

I am sure he prayed for me to stop whining

May 19th 2008

the phone rings a message left

"Hi Steve it's me the kitchen just wanted to wish you a Happy 3rd Anniversary"

(My daughter has the best humour)

Steve did not agree

June 2008

It Hit me

and hit me hard

I have


cupboard doors


I have food

My impatience and whining for 3 years completely


I started to Praise God for what I did have

a well intentioned man

who does all the grocery shopping


fills my doorless cupboards

with food

Yes my kitchen is ugly


torn apart

but I am content

and now am blessed



September 12 2009

My husband is taking me kitchen renovation shopping


Out with the old and in with the new

Praise God, for His timing is always perfect

I know what I have learned during this past 4 years

and that is much more valuable than

any old kitchen or new for that matter

Looking forward to sharing the finished product with you

Out Of Our Heads

It may just be me but I have noticed of late alot of
and just plain cruelty of words not only in the enviroment I work in but I hear how parents speak to their children,children to their parents and how strangers react to each other.
The news is full of horrific doings and death
I see more shows on television about the occult and ghosts and "The Unexplained"

I am not sure if I have just started to notice as my heart gets closer to God and to what is right or if I have ignored the world and have finally just had enough.
I am not sure why I really felt the need to share this with you either but the one thing I know of late is that my heart aches for this world.
My eyes have been opened and there are days I just want to scream.
I cannot and will not allow the world to dictate who I am or what I am supposed to be.
I allow Christ to dictate and show me who I am in Him and Him alone.
He has shown me and I pray that He will show others wether through the the body of Christ or directly by His hand that it's time we all got Out of our Heads and into our Hearts
for that is where He lives.
My prayers are not only for this city but to be shouted out to every corner of the world.

My appologies if the first part of this video offends anyone but it's the world we live in.
