HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

Standard

Happy birthday to ME!!!

I am a year older, with the hopes of becoming a little wise, so the days leading up to my birthday; I am excited, reflective, giddy, and downright grateful. So many blessings in my life, and today I take time to appreciate and take them all in. I won’t get another birthday until next year Lord willing, so the plan is to soak in all the love, and joy this day brings. (My almond coconut cake with white chocolate filling and finish should play a HUGE role in the joy).

I often try to ponder on thoughts as I grow, although the delivery guy asked me yesterday; if I was at least 21 and old enough to sign for a package…I thought I am at least 16… (Even if for the 100th time.)

This year I am pondering on Psalm 90 verse 12, I especially like the New English Translation; it reads “So teach us to consider our mortality, so that we might live wisely” I pray it comes true for me going forward. I pray I open my eyes to the limitless possibilities around me however short life is…I pray more than ever that I fulfill destiny…it is the cry of my heart… it is the deepest desire of my soul.

Today as I mark another year in my blessed life, I ponder on the bible verse shared above, and joyfully celebrate this moment. Thank you all so much for the calls, messages, and outpour of love. I am one loved girl.

Happy birthday to ME!!!

So many names He carries
This God
To some he is father
Faithful, lover, comfort, peace
Friend, all of these in one

Today
In the chaos of my paralyzing faith
Doubts and questions about any and everything

I ask
That he be to me
Comfort, Savior, answer and
I AM

*Happy new month dear friends. May it be for you and yours a wonderful one :).*

Merry Christmas!!!

Neatly wrapped in a bow of beige and care
Sent flying in the winds so high
My love and heart I send to all
This Christmas dawn

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Isaiah 9:6: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Luke 2:14: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

What Words Can I Say?

Standard

What words can I say?
To the one who writes the script
To the tale and every season of my life

A life that seems
Less than perfect
Mistakes and disappointments
From and on every side

Yet he remains the author
The one who perfects my faith
My source and renewal on days of doubt

Savior and heartwarming king
His love is inscribed on this beating heart
Hope pumping back in time

What words can I then say
But thank you
To the one who loves me
Through winter’s chill
And summer’s heat

His good grace bringing hope in spring

Moving Forward

Standard

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 1Timothy 2:1-2. NIV

Sound the alarm, make it known
As unprecedented history resoundingly repeats itself
A generation speaking for what it believes
The horns of victory blowing in their hearts
Celebration and joy flowing from them all

And though there is still much work to be done
We rejoice still in this feat
Acknowledging the long journey ahead
Its road tough and rough

Knowing in the coming days and months
We must reach across aisles
Putting ambition, color and self-agenda aside
Working together for a greater good

For underneath our dividing differences
Lay a unifying truth
Love for a great nation, our patriotism
So together we must work
Even if and when we disagree
Every one doing their part

For progress, success, and lasting change
To prevail

Conversations with myself: Supermom?! I think not.

Standard

Good morning, it’s 5:30am, and the first baby is awake, she is crying, “Ok, ok I am up” and remind myself; “milk goes in the cup; it’s time to stop the bottle.”
I change diapers then we go down for milk and I pour some in the cup, “I hope the second baby sleeps longer than her sister” I think to myself. Oh oh second baby is up; “hurry hurry.” I mumble to myself.

“We will just do cups tomorrow,” “come on Boomie just give her the cup if she’s hungry she won’t care.” But I’m in a hurry; I have to get to the other baby who is now screaming. Dad is shoveling snow outside, we had 10 inches overnight.
Supermom just lost a battle even before it started; gave them their milk in bottles. “Shame on me” I think, or not. I am feeling bad; the day has just started and I’m already giving in.

8:00am- milk in cup yes!!! Oh no, the second baby won’t take it, “you are going to be hungry;” I tell her, “please God let her drink it.” I prayed silently. She doesn’t, “no milk for you then” I feel bad but I’m trying to be tough.
We finally settle downstairs; “you are having applesauce for your noon time snack; first baby up do you hear that?” I said unconvincingly.

Noontime- she is screaming and my head hurts; oh I forgot to tell you; “I’ve got really bad sinus infection and I’m taking Zyretec and Antibiotics,” I’m drowsy but keep moving.
“Ok, you will be hungry” I tell her, as I pull out what I know she wants: yogurt. “You are only getting one today, I hope you know that, look at your sister eating her applesauce;” I continued I’m feeding both of them at the same time. She is still crying; I’m trying to feed as fast as I can.

“Oh I have to use my vitamins; drink or eat something,” I remembered, just as I felt a pang in my stomach-HUNGER! There goes my workout again, “I haven’t been to the gym in over a week; and I need to lose weight; I need to find a career, find something to do,” my head is spinning with so many thoughts. Crying!!! Back to reality; first baby wants another cup of yogurt and so does her sister. “These things cost money girls,” I said as I opened another cup; “that’s the last one and no yogurt tomorrow” I tell them.

Dinner- eat; or not. I’m so tired I can’t think straight, the news is on and guess what it’s Christmas on Saturday, WHAT!!! No pictures with Santa, they don’t have any dresses, shoes, or presents. Christmas around the corner means dad’s birthday is next week, he is going to be 21 for 15th or 16th time, I don’t even know anymore. Oh no I need more time, I will have to be out early tomorrow. “Hmmm there goes my workout again, maybe day after,” I’m trying to convince myself. “Ouch I need to clean the house, I wonder where I can find an affordable cleaner;” I think to myself. You know, I will just take this week off from working out. Well I have taken the last few weeks off L I look at my tummy. “God please make me skinny!!!” I begged looking up.

Bath time, bed- The girls are tucked in. Me- time finally! “Should I take a shower?” I asked myself, but the medications are in full mood, and I’m drowsy; well, there’s my answer. Tomorrow morning then, I’m going out anyways.

Peace and quiet, I’m reflecting on the day, I got one baby to drink milk from her cup, I took out their hair, what else; I didn’t work out, couldn’t go out, I still haven’t had a bath; “focus Boomie, remember peace and quiet;” I muttered half asleep. I hear crying, “Come on I just went to bed five minutes ago,” I screamed in my head. I check my cell phone, its 11:30pm, and I have 12 missed calls; “whatever” I thought as I asked myself “who is crying?!” Oh goodness it’s the TV, thank God, “did I pray before going to bed, pray now, then read my bible, I will just read psalm 23; it’s shorter plus I know it by heart so I’m not really reading;” God please help me, zzzzzzzz. “Wake up Boomie”, “no you wake up,” I replied to my alarm clock. What?!? Its 5:30am, and the first baby is up….cup or bottle?!? Here we go, it’s almost Christmas.
