Cori Cracks me UP!

Today when Cori got out of the tub, she says, "I have been married ALL DAY!"

I don't know where it came from, but marriage has been on her mind a lot lately.

She has been obessed with our wedding pictures in the hallway. She tells Justin "daddy, you married mommy." She is so very into it right now. I can't believe it. It makes me short of breath to think about her being grown up and married.

Just had to share.

Our prayers are working!

Stellan is doing better, but not completely out of the woods.  Please continue to pray that the meds will work, the side effects will be minimal, and that he will break out of SVT for good.
 
MckMama's recent blog made a plea for help.  Not for her family, but for families that we can touch.  This makes me think about the ministry of the church and our place to help families in need.  Our hospital here doesn't have a NICU, so we don't see those families who are distraught with worry, worn out, exhausted, and sick over their ailing infants, but we do see it in the waiting rooms, and hallways.  There are things that we could choose to see each day.  There are things that we can do. 
 
I encourage you to keep in touch with your local church, keep your eyes open for prayer requests for families dealing with illness, and do what you feel led to do.  It may be to make a home cooked meal and take it to the waiting room, it may be a video for the family to enjoy together that can take their minds away to a fairytale land for a brief time, it may be a cookie bouquet to brighten the room, it could be money, it could be volunteering your time at the local hospital or clinic or any number of things that God will lead you to do. 
 
I am so thankful that I haven't faced having a sick child and I pray that it is something that I don't have to know the heartache of, but I do know that there are people who need us, they are praying for us to meet that need for their family.  God will use you, if you open your heart, mind, and schedule and let Him.

Please Pray for Stellan

On the right is a button to pray for Stellan. That will take you to MckMama's blog and you can get the details for the situation right now. Please be praying. She is watching her little baby slip away. God is a God of miracles and He can heal this situation. Please, please pray.

At The Movies Set

Want to see what our church looks like for our current series AT THE MOVIES?  We don't do VBS so I guess this is our version.  The pastor takes current movies and gives them Biblical perspective.  This is something draws so many people to our church.  They come to visit  just to see what it is all about and then they decide to stay.
 
Our theme this year is Wizard of Oz and they have gone above and beyond this year.  Enjoy.
 
 
It is so amazing!!!!
 
Check it out if you are in the area of a Lifechurch.  There are churches in Owasso, Tulsa, Edmond, Oklahoma City, Stillwater so there are lots of options in Oklahoma.  And they even have Saturday night church.  We went to the lifechurch in Tulsa on Sunday.  Their set is Transformers and it is equally as awesome.

Proud of me!

So my husband, kiddo and I went on a 5k walk today for the second day in a row!!!! Today was a much bigger struggle than yesterday. I also didn't think about praying when things got hard and I wanted to sit down. I have to get into the habit of that.Tonight we had beef kabobs for dinner. They were awesome and even better...we got to eat them outside in the beautiful 85 degree weather.

Last night we watched a movie and I didn't get started on my Bible study, but I will get caught up today.

I did find a really great free website to track EVERYTHING you would want to track when working out, dieting, etc. It is www.fitday.com. I think I remember this from years ago, but the format is totally changed and amazing.

Now we just have to get all the beginning settings set up and we will be on a roll. I have set a long term goal for my weight loss by my birthday. It is not more than 2 lbs a week, so it is definitely doable. I am ready, willing, and able....even though I don't feel like it sometimes.

Today is Day 1


We started a new Bible Study today! It is a Summer First Place Bible study called Healthy Summer Living. It is a 6 week study. Complete with recipes, memory verses, and everything you need to get in shape physically, spiritually, and emotionally for the summer.

I am so excited. This will be a good time to get into the swing of things by working out, and having a good time doing it. I know I have a few weeks to lose a little weight before my dreaded 10 year reunion...oh I don't want to go, and I especially don't want to go fat! See included before picture! YIKES!

The summer has flown by and we only have a few weeks left until school starts. I would like to be down 15 lbs by the beginning of school.

We have a private blog to track our progress....so I will probably only be blogging milestones here, but I may double post if I come across something super inspiring. Pray for me!
