What kind of friend?

Posted in My writings tagged , , at 1:26 pm by mottoblasco

In her darkest hour…were you there to show her love?

In her hardest time…were you there fighting for her?

In her neediest moment…were you there unceasingly?

In her saddest day…were you there to wipe her tears?

In her time of trials…were you showing her to Jesus?

In those quiet times…were you praying for her soul?

What kind of friend…are you?

No more excuses

Posted in Home, My writings tagged , , at 9:23 pm by mottoblasco

You know how you come to a point when enough is enough.  You are tired of living with the monotony of the day-to-day stuff?  Mostly, tired of making excuses for why that bible hasn’t gotten off the shelf in a month, aside from church(boo to ‘Sunday’ Christianity).  I’m in that place.  I am tired of saying I don’t have time and I’m going to make time.  Don’t get me wrong, I love God & pray & praise daily, but the Bible or even a daily devoted time is non-existent.  So here I am, putting it out there that I refuse to let that continue.

John & I have talked about it many times because we go thru stages where the kids get more demanding, then less demanding, then more demanding &  back again.  But we know Christ deserves so much more than that.  Family night will now commence.  Every Tuesday night we will not watch TV/Movies, etc.  We will play with the kids(duh), do Gracie Games, but most important study & read Bible stories & pray with them.  These things aren’t uncommon but we want to be more purposeful about it.  Also, after they go to sleep it’s our turn to pray, study, talk, worship, together.

Please pray for us that we continue to seek putting him first, because we all know how hard it is in our fallen state.  A men

I need anyone & everyones help.  I want part of this blog to be about food, cause I love it.  I easily get bored and want to try something new.  So this is where you come in.  I want your recipes, all kinds of them!  I want to try at least 1 new recipe every week.  I don’t care if it’s a great breakfast, lunch, snack, dessert, vegetarian, meat filled, side dish, bread, special drink, healthy(we like trying these)…u send it, I’ll make it!

I do realize it is kind of Julie-&-Julia-esque(although I have not yet seen the movie itself) but sometimes we need inspiration.  So will you help?

Please post the recipe as a comment or send me an e-mail…I hope to hear from everyone soon!

I found this blog and LOVE what she is doing. If I could sew I would do this! Maybe I can learn how to sew & then do my own…either way, you go girl!

That is all.

UPDATE:  She was on the Nate Berkus show around day 300!  I knew I was in the company of greatness!
