Answer to Prayer...

Go to Woman of Faith come back refreshed...ahhhhh Sounds nice huh??? It has been the hardest week I can remember. I have not wanted to throw, beat, stomp, spit on as many things as I have this week. Weird huh? When satan wants to hit you he can tend to come full force when he thinks God is moving in your life.

The week started off OK. Shawn was out of town in Wisconsin for work, so it was just me and the three girls. In case you were wondering Taylor has effectively learned every single one of my buttons to push. Even buttons which I didn't know I had. I usually do a fairly good job at reasoning with children. Yes I know Taylor is a teenager...but still I'm older I have more life experience and I should be able to get her to do what I need her to do. I have to admit at one point in time I wanted to throw the tape dispenser at her. :) It must have been the lack of sleep from the weekend and then not sleeping well at all with Shawn being gone. I love her though...she is going to be one AWESOME INCREDIBLE witness for her Heavenly Father. God is making her into one WONDERFUL WOMAN...As for a teenager...I recall what Pastor Ken had to say...Jesus loves you and I'm trying.

Then comes Wednesday...after being at work from 8am until 9:30pm my car started to over heat. Thankfully by God's Grace it over heat just after I got off our exit and Shawn had just home a few hours earlier. I pulled into McD's parking lot and call my car smart husband up to come in rescue us. On Saturday Morning after Shawn replaced the breaks for someone that work with he tried to work on my car. It was too hard and had to take it to an actually professional car doctor. We are just praying now that it won't be too expensive.

Thursday starts out late with no car it's difficult to get 19 miles up the road. I like to get to work at 8 but didn't get to work until 11 and then it seemed like the entire day was shot!

Friday was fun but extremely emotionally draining. I took Kelly, Jaylin, and Taylor to go register at Babies R Us for baby Eli (that's his name Eli Maddox). It seemed like that weekend was just as crazy as the week. To top it ALL off Sadie ,my choclate lab ate over 1/2 my hamburger tonight!!!! IT WAS ON MY PLATE!!!! I DIDN'T OFFER IT TO HER!!! MAN was I ticked! It is true...God gives strength to those who ask. OH there is so much more I could add in here but its late and I'm tried of typing and if your still there you HAVE to be tired of reading about my boring busy life.

How is all of this an answer to prayer you might ask...Before I left Rocky Mount I prayed GOD PLEASE give me a season of rest when i get to Ohio. He did...6 months almost to the day...during that time I prayed Please give me SOMETHING TO DO!!!! God USE ME!!! What's taking so long...

I bet God's laughing saying See that's why you needed 6 months...
