I was totally embarrassed and ashamed of my mom growing up so
I totally get it. But the times are so different now. When I was a teen, (dot, dot, dot) well, let's just say you won't be reading about it on my blog. HAHA JUST KIDDING!
That would be twisted FAKE if I
hid anything because that's part of
who I am and where I came from.
Shoot - thru this process I find myself talking about myself a lot and maybe repeating some things - sorry. I will try to stick to the subject and not repeat things either.
I know it's not all about MEEE. I'm honest, maybe too honest. NOOO, no one can be too honest right? But, that's not the point, the point is:
I don't boast for my sake,
I BOAST FOR THE LORD!
ONLY HE can change someone like me into what I've become, his favorite daughter.
DON'T HATE - YOU ARE AS WELL
Love the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth you can sit on the right-hand side of the Father with Jesus as our Advocate
and Holy Spirit our counselor.
Oh, I'm not spilling any tea either,
I'm not a gossip - I try not to and don't want to be labeled gossip.

To my teenagers listen please - everyone on the planet is different from one another. I'm different and so is their dad; but we were made for each other. We can be ourselves and not judge each other. Well, wait that not true, sometimes we do judge each other, and pick at each other's words and act like 2-year-olds. Then, It escalates into a full-blown shouting match almost immediately lol Sometimes we ARGUE! <<gasp>>
and have to leave the presence of one another to calm down. That's a tactic we learned from one of our many marriage counselors.
HOW ON EARTH DID WE GET TO TALKING ABOUT THAT?
We've been in marriage counseling pretty much ever since our second year of marriage. We sought out my counselor which was also my Father-in-Law at this time. The roles changed but the love k Of course, we tried it the way the Bible says to treat one another. We fasted and prayed! MORE COUNSELING, ould go about this. with lots of prayer from the Elders of the church. We didn't live in Noble at the time but a retired pastor had a prayer ministry. We set an appointment and him and his intercessor (a person that prays to Jesus Christ) counseled us and prayed with us, for us over us, anointed us with oil and a miracle happened!

This coming June 1st will be our 20th anniversary. We celebrate this date instead of our second wedding date of March 23, 2013, when we were re-married. I don't think we planned either wedding with more than two days' notice. It was all God how everything fell into place His mighty hand on our small family of nine (at the time).
That day in March landed on Palm Sunday, which made it a more special day to me. Because I love learning about Jewish roots and the history of according the HIS WORD.
was cold and rainy. I like rainy but cold and rainy - not so much. Then we went to our favorite restaurant to celebrate.

There are no identical twins, no identical snowflakes, nor fingerprints, footprints, nor DNA. Therefore, some parents are WEIRD, and your kids were present on that blessed day when God was matching your spirit up with your parents and you ended up with the WEIRD-LO parents. Ha, "weird-lo" from Lilo and Stitch.
I know it's just a phase. If they knew the Lord's intentions, they are good and working through me.

Every day in some form or another, I wonder to myself, how much of my personal story should I share on this blog? Who really is my audience? I'm thinking: I'm really blogging about some adult and mature issues coming up and the ONLY reason I would hold back is because of someone getting embarrassed.
