Jello at the Chiropractor

I love going to my chiropractor. I lay on a roller table, get heat and stim and it feels sooooo good. After that, I get adjusted.

Well, today I took Double Espresso (10). He got to lay on a roller table next to me for about 15-20 minutes. When we got up he was like Jello! It was so funny. After I was finished I went to the desk to make my next appointment and she said, "When do you want to come back?" Double Espresso piped up, "TOMORROW!!"

Thankful Thursday - Beautiful Wisconsin

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Wow is all I can say! We went on a trip to Wisconsin to get away from it all and rest. R E S T rest! We stayed at Greenlake Christian Conference Center and it is SO beautiful! Their grounds are right on the lake and much of it is tucked into the woods.

One day, we woke up and saw a bunch of wild turkey walking through our yard!


We had so much fun as a family. (Relaxing fun...) I'll post more about that later.

I am thankful for:

1. God's beautiful creations that we get to enjoy
2. Resting in Jesus
3. The time we spent in the woods at Green Lake
4. Our beautiful boys
5. All of the neat things we have found for school (homeschool)

Rosacea Cure / Healing Story

Molly at Econobusters posted a question about a reader who is wondering about how to soothe rosacea. I looked for that secret solution for eight years!

Here's my healing story:

For eight years I suffered with rosacea. Rosacea is a face disfiguring disease. It started off as redness in the T Zone area. After a while, I got bumps. The bumps never really went away. If one healed, it was almost unnoticeable. There were times that I had 15 or more oozing, bleeding, bumps that were more like welts. It wasn't unusual to be sitting watching TV and I would feel something dripping down my face. A bump would be bleeding and I would have to run for tissue.

I tried everything I could without taking meds. I tried vitamins, herbs, and many creams. Nothing worked even a little bit. I prayed and prayed for God to tell me what to do. I just knew that it HAD to be simple.

A year ago this month, I felt the Lord God tell me to do the "Daniel Fast." I didn't know much about it so I looked it up and researched it. I knew that this had to be God so I decided to do it. After the first two weeks my face was cleared and the rosacea never came back. I knew it had to be simple!

God is good and He is STILL in the healing business!

If you have rosacea, I'd love for you to comment and let me know if you decide to do the Daniel Fast.

The Wise Family


I listened to a series of sermons on the family by James MacDonald and thought I would share them with you. You can listen to them or download them too. Just scroll down to "The Wise Family" series.


These quotes were taken from the series:

Quote: You can't guarantee that your child will follow the Lord but you CAN guarantee that they won't. (By being a lazy parent)

Quote: If having a good family were easy - everyone would have one. It takes work.

Quote: Choose to sin - choose to suffer.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


1 Corinthians 4:5b ...wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise will come to him from God.


1. I am thankful that God knows. He knows the truth of men's hearts. He knows when we are wronged by things hidden in the darkness. Even when (I) doing something contrary against His Word, He knows and let's me know. That way I can fix it and get back into a good standing with Him.

2. I am reading the free book from Voice of the Martyrs. It has made me very, very thankful for my Bible.

3. I am thankful for the rest I can have in Yeshua. His burden is light.

4. I am thankful for the Spiritual gifts that God gives.

5. On that note, I am thankful for His gift that He has given me.

A Word From the Lord


Have you ever felt frustrated all the way down to the inside? Have you ever been betrayed by friends and or family? Do you know the hurt that comes from betrayal? This is what we went to bed with last night.

Dream Latte got a call this morning from someone who is basically a stranger to us and lives over 1000 miles away. He said that he had a word from the Lord and thought it was for us. He said, "I don't know what you are going through but I have a word from the Lord for you. Jeremiah 29:11." Dream Latte proceeded to quote it and tell him that the word came just at the right time.



For I know the plans I have for you, declares the
LORD, plans for
welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11
ESV



People often say that, "Time heals all wounds." This is not a true statement. Jesus heals all wounds but there is a catch. You have to let Him!

Thankful Thursday!

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey


I am thankful for Yeshua! His name in English is Jesus but in Hebrew it is Yeshua! The name Yeshua actually means salvation. When Mary was told that she was going to give birth to Him, she was told that His name was called, Salvation.

I am thankful for His
salvation,
grace,
provision,
forgiveness,
and His love.

Eliminate! WFMW

In a lot of homes in the good ol' USA, the TV is on ALL DAY LONG! Some people don't ever turn it off. It is a constant noise. Tip: Turn off the TV and turn on some nice music.
We have a nice stereo/jam box that we keep in the living room area. After a little while of TV, I turn it off and turn on some piano, praise and worship music. It's just soft music to have going in the background. The music creates a calm atmosphere that is so relaxing.
This really isn't a "back to school" tip but it could be if you want it to be! Try doing this during the school day. Music is great therapy and gets your brain going.
Works For Me!! If you do something like this, please share!
For more WFMW tips: see We Are That Family!

While I'm Waiting - Blog Hop

Sometimes, our timing isn't the same as God's timing.
Sometimes, He has other ideas and plans.
Sometimes, we wait.
Sometimes, it's hard to wait.

All the time, no matter how difficult, praise Him while we are waiting.

Even though I am going through some hard times, I will still lift my hands in worship to my King Jesus!

I hope this song encourages you as it does me:

Parenting Encouragement

1-2-3


Luke 6:40 Are students better than their teacher? But when they are fully trained,
they will be like their teacher. (CEV)



Why do we as parents want our children to mind us the first time? Why do we expect them to mind us at all? How important is it that they mind us?


As parents, we desire our children to mind but sometimes it is for selfish reasons. Our purpose in teaching them to obey our voice is so that they will learn to obey the voice of God. When they grow up and aren't under our influence any longer, they will need to recognise and obey the voice of the Lord.


I just want to encourage you to examine your motives, change directions if you have to and show your children what it means for a person to mind the first time. Listen to the voice of the Lord and do what He says. Lead by example!
