Revive me oh Lord

Last week the flu bug was going on in our house, this week the sore throats, ache bodies, runny noses and just feeling yucky. I'm really getting sick of feeling like this. It's bad when hubby & kids get it, but when the mom gets it, everyone and everything suffer because of it. But I have to keep moving or nothing gets done. I do know that God is in control of all things, I seem to draw closer to him when I feel so yucky, because I depend on Him to get me thur the day, which He always does, He amazes me every time I go thru the valleys. This weekend our church is having a fun fair/community pantry for our community, I believe God is going to reach out to some people this weekend, and I think also their is spiritual warfare going on, but I also know who already won the victory. Hopefully I gets some pictures of the fun fair to put up, this will be our 5th year of having Revive, it gets better each year, it's such a blessing to watch all those kids just have fun and to be smiling.

Kids Choir

Sorry the picture is slightly dark but I had to show off our kids choir.
Our kids at our church are amazing to listen to, they sang at the talent show we had at are church, not only can they sing, but some of them were on the drums, the piano, guitar, and some did solos they all did a great job.

I hit the button to soon to edit the picture below, anyway we had a talent show Sunday night at church. I thought this was pretty cool Emily the girl sitting on the table represents a heavy burden in our life and the boys behind her represent our prayers being lifted up to God. The boys are blowing prayers into the bag and lifting up our heavy burden to God, she is literally coming up off the table.

I love lemons, lemon pie, lemon cookies, lemon bars, lemon water it's all good stuff, even just the looks of lemons. I had a couple in the fridge that needed to get used up so I pulled out my cookbook and looked for anything that was lemony, I voted for lemon bars,something I know the kids will like, Fred will probally wonder were the lemon pie is, I just can't seem to get that one down good enough yet, I should practice more, I got Aunt Ruths recipe even though it doesn't quite turn out like hers it still gets ate up. I put them on a plate so no one would notice a piece was missing, cleaver ain't I, so after dinner I can have another one, but in the mean time I will go try one still warm with a glass of milk. yum

lazy day

It's was one of those days were I was caught up on everything that I needed to get done so I spent some time playing around with this blog it has been alot of fun. Besides that I did manage to get my soap cut up, I haven't been able to do it, because I caught some horrible stomach virus, that I wasn't sure if it was the flu or not, I ended up going to ER, because the pain wasn't normal, anyway the nausea was not good & I couldn't stand the smell of anything, so my soap sat for a few extra days in it's soap mold,but that's o.k. it was easier getting it out. It smells like pink grapefruit just in case your wondering.

New to this

I'm so new to this blogging, I love to look and read other peoples blogs, I'm not so sure I can write and keep one, but I thought I would give it a try and see how things go. Along with learning how to put up pictures even deciding what to write, it shall be interesting and fun.
I did figure out how to upload this picture(with the help of my daughter)this was taken at sleeping bear dunes, it was a great time, we went a couple summers ago and plan to go again this summer.
