Prayer journal

This is something that I try to write in every night. Sometimes I know who to pray for and others I make a status on my personal FB page asking if anyone has any prayer requests. Some nights I get a lot, a few, and nothing. I don’t know what it depends on and it doesn’t really matter. My ‘friends’ know that I write in this and they don’t have to wait until I post something in order for them to send me their request.

This is more of a ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has trusted me & sent me prayer requests. To some it’s not a big deal, but to others it is. It’s letting someone into a part of you that is vulnerable. It’s not always easy to open up to people. So I thank you for the bottom of my heart for trusting me! I hope that you continue to trust me. I always write every request that comes my way. I may not be able to do it right then, but I definitely gets written down.

I have had so many over the last couple of years that I have had to start a second journal! I love that! This isn’t about me at all, it’s all about Him. I am just the messenger. Just because someone sends me a request, doesn’t mean that their prayer will be answered. But what it does mean is that I am in agreement with them.

“I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it
will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come
together in my name, there am I with them.”                                    
                Matthew 18:19-20

I hope and pray that people continue to send their requests no matter what their belief, He hears you and doesn’t stop loving you just because you aren’t lined up with Him. You are His child and He wants you to prosper. And don’t just talk to Him when you need\want something, talk to Him all the time. It’s not about a religion, it’s about a relationship.

Again, thank you all so much for trusting me with your requests 🙂


Shady People

As I am typing this up, I don’t have a name for this post but maybe one will come to me once I am finished. It’s not a good title, but I couldn’t think of anything else to call it.

Back in October\November-ish my mil had run into some problems and ended up with no job & no home. So my husband took it upon himself (after talking with me) to step up and invite her to come live with us. She agreed, packed up her car, and drove from FL to TX. She had been living with us ever since.

Well sometime in the last few weeks she was talking with one of her friends and this friend offered her a few things (that she had here mind you….a job & roof over her head) she took her friend up on her offer. I have my thoughts & opinions on why she decided to leave but, in the end, they don’t matter. Mind you that I have just had my first csection 2 weeks ago, but that didn’t matter to her. Nothing we said mattered to her. And once again, she flaked on us right after one of our children were born.
Now I am a strong woman and I made the choice to suck it up and do what I had to do for my family on a daily basis without the help that was promised to us. I didn’t want to see my husband stressed out because someone couldn’t keep their word. And so far, everything is going great.

My point of telling you this is….
If you are going to tell someone you are going to be there for them while they recover, then do it. Or whatever the circumstances may be. Don’t tell someone (especially family) that you will help out and then turn around & leave with partically no notice. How incredibly rude & selfish!
Don’t worry, I have said these things to her face….none of it mattered. There was an excuse for everything…like there always is.
But while she is gone…all her boxes are still taking up space in our home. Do we have room for this…nope! But because she fails to plan properly, it has fallen on my husband and I to ship her boxes. Are we paying for it? NOPE! It’s just frustrating for us to take care of our family plus have someone elses things taking up space and have it fall on us to ship it when she should have planned better. But good things it’s not up to me because she wouldn’t like what I would do.

I am totally fed up with this person and their actions…or lack there of in most cases. Whatever comes out of her mouth, I will no longer believe. I can’t after what has happened over the last few months. I just can’t wait for her stuff to be out & I can put some daughters room & living room back together.

Moral of the story:
Don’t let shady people live with you & don’t take their word on anything either.
