A little bloggin' a lotta braggin'

First off, I know I don't get to blog as much as I'd like to and then when I am bloggin' I feel like I'm on too much...huh? Anyone else with this problem? Ok, So now I want to brag cause I have the best husband and I feel badly for the rest of ya'll who only got second best...hee..hee! My husband loves to cook and cooks well! I know my friend Michelle will atest to that. If there is no bread and we are broke (which has been the case for far too long), he won't do without bread if he has a hankerin' for bread. He'll just make it! And I ain't talking bread machine or any ready made box either. He goes all out from scratch. And there is nothing and I mean nothing like fresh out of the oven white bread with butter on it! Mmmm..Mmmm..good! Ok, now I'm making myself hugry. I know I'm starting to make myself sound like a slacker wife, but I'm ok with that. If my husband loves to cook, why mess with a good thing. So why does he say the kitchen and also the house are mine, that I am the queen? Well, I guess cause he loves me. Tonight I went to church and took the kids and he did not go because he had got on a 'roll' (not the bread kind) in the kitchen and didn't want to stop. I know I mentioned befoe that we recently moved to Texas. Well with the kids we don't settle in too fast. Honestly I think we are doing very well but things quickly get out of sorts. Well they get that way without us moving. So, back to braggin', when I get home and put the youngins' to bed I go to the kitchen and he is on his hands and knees scrubbing the floor! Yeah, now yer jelous! Ok so this doesn't happen often, actually it hasn't happened before. But last week we worked on our bedroom together and got it looking more 'friendly' and inviting (meaning organized). It is looking good! Little at a time.
On another note...I appreciate you prayers, we continue to live one day at a time. God is taking care of us day by day. There are still a tremendous amount of needs that we have (rent, utilities, car payment...etc) Food needs have been provided in the form of food stamps and WIC and we are applying for medicaid. There is not much we can do but prayand ask for prayers. If I hadn't mentioned it before, my husband is working for the seminary where he will be returning in the fall, and they pay a very small wage. He is hard of hearing too so that limits some jobs possibilities. We are praying that God not only provides the finances we need but also the job that God would have for him. He likes his job and it is close to home but we are praying and have been looking for a second job. Wanting to know if that is what God would have him to do. I ahve decided to give all my worries to God. He clothed the lilies of the fields and feeds the sparrows. How much more does He love me, a child of the King? .....Alot! That is how much He loves all of us! Thanks again for your precious prayers!

trusting God can be hard, but it's also very adventurous at times, isn't it? May God grant all that you need. He knows the plans He has for you and yours.

I found a book last night in the bookshelf which came from my husband's family. I'm sure I never read it. It is called "Streams in the Desert" It is a daily devotional book Here is an excerpt from it... (Exodus 14:21) "The Lord caused the sea to go back...all that night."
"Do not forget that it was "all that night." God works all that night, until the light comes. You may not see it, but all that "night" in your life, as you believe God. He works." I know I forget God is at work behind the scenes and this is a good reminder.

A husband who can cook! How nice! My hubby isn't much of a chef, but he makes up for in other areas.

Keeping your family in my prayers.
