7 months already! Where did the month go???

  This month has disappeared in some ways and in others it has drug on. I am looking forward to not wishing my week days away and living for the weekend.  Nest week and I'm on to a better schedule. Which happens to be God's perfect timing. My mom is having her lumpectomy on wed. I truly wish that I would use my PTO for Wed-Fri, but company policy says that if I take them I have to work over to the hour. Basically I just can't take the time that's mine off. So on the positive note... at least I work the office building that is connected to the hospital where mom is having her surgery. I will pop back and forth to see what's happening.
  My mom is doing well. She has had a good weekend full of her Grand babies.  We had a sleep over with 3 of the granddaughters.   They all entertain Eli and he loves them!  One thing that is keeping her going is her grands.  Eli really couldn't have arrived at a better time. The night she received the positive results Eli laid a BIG wet kiss on her and she wasn't even asking for it. It melted all of our hearts.
  Eli turned 7 month today... since going back to work the time has been in fast forward. That is why I am looking forward to slowing down and enjoying every minute that I have with him.  Life is just too short and precious to not enjoy every moment possible.
 Breaking ground... we should be breaking ground soon. If the rain will stop we will be able to move forward. The lot is cleared and ready for footings. We are ready! I hope to post pics soon of the progress.
  I can not end this post without mentioning that through outreach ministry at my church, 523 people asked Jesus to forgive them of their sins and became believers in the past 5 days!  Isn't that awesome. We truly are disobeying God my not being "fishers of men" and "going into all the world to preach the gospel."   I can't tell you the last time I lead someone to Christ.  I am ready to change that.  If I had the cure to cancer I would be running up to anyone that would listen and telling them about it. I should be the same way with the "Key" to eternal life.
  So before I say goodnight. I have to tell you, God has a plan and purpose for your life. If you died tonight do you know if you would go to heaven?  If not then all you have to do is acknowledge that you are a sinner born into a world of sin. Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life.  Life is too short to go to sleep with out knowing where you would be if you didn't wake up in the morning.
  If you have made the decision to believe in Jesus and would like for me to pray for you or just talk about what it entails email me at jailen2000 at hot mail dot com.  post a comment on here that you have emailed me so that I can get it out of junkmail if it goes there.

I hope every one had a great weekend!

I'm adding another ribbon and it happens to be pink

September 16, 2011 was the day my mother received the phone call that it is cancer.
The dreaded words that you never want to hear just 3 short months after loosing one of your dearest friends to the dreaded disease they call breast cancer.
Of course horror floods the mind and our Creator comforts the soul.
Through the words of the docotor and the stop of the heart beat in the moment,
{peace be still.}
Today we met with the surgeon, oncologist and chemologist.
"It is a miracle that you missed the past 2 years with your mammograms... we may not have found it and certainly not as early as we have."
"At this point with your type of cancer there is a 98% cure."
"It looks to be contained."
"We have caught it very early... if you have the diagnosis of breast cancer this is the type you want to have."
These were all words we had wanted to hear given the diagnosis.
So today I will be adding a ribbon to my blog as this cancer has now touched my life closer than I ever wanted it too. By the grace of God we have a good report and the best outcome possible ahead.
Although nothing is 100% until the surgery, we are believing from God to give my mom hope, strength and courage to fight this disease and become 100% cured!
My God is faithful and I know it is all in His hands and His control.
We will support her a day at a time.
Thank you all for your prayers and your text.
It is so nice to know where to go when you need people to pray.
I even had people that texted me and said they had us on their hearts and very heavily today and they had no idea what was going on.
No who can say my God is dead?... He is SO ALIVE and He speaks to His children every day.
I just pray that I hear His voice everytime He speaks for those around me.

I know this angel in heaven is rejoicing for mom in knowing that she has been diagnosed early and her chance of survival is extremely high.
Donna, you are truly missed and greatly loved.

Psalms 46:10
“Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”

Cancer Faith

Cancer may come unexpectedly into your life,
Bringing fear, hard times, and great strife.

Families suffer and the end clearly unknown.
Families are stronger than ever and not alone.

Our personalities must stay optimistic,
Feeling better and free will be realistic.

The experience could be a long, hard ride,
Twists and turns in which you have cried.

When you fight and beat it and go on to live,
Don't forget the people who are here to give.

Love and care will forever and always stay.
Cancer will be knocked out of the way.

Your soul is and will be stronger than this;
It can conquer cancer, destroy and dismiss.

Courage and memories are very much needed,
As tiring treatments have faithfully succeeded.

Friendship, family, and faith cannot be suppressed;
They are the loving souls that make you blessed.

When my love-filled Mom became a cancer survivor,
I soon realized that I was an underwater diver.

You dive in but you never know what is there for you,
It could be your worst experience or the very best view.

More prayers needed... our God is faithful

Thursday we will attend a doctors appointment no one ever wants to attend. It is not for my self, but I am going as the "nurse" with the medical mind. I really can't go into details, but I wanted to have anyone who reads my blog to send up prayers this Thursday the 22nd for my family. God is faithful and we are praying for God's will and peace to prevail for the best possible out come.

Please Pray

 A friend of mine is having one of the most difficult days a mother could have. She was 14 weeks and lost the baby. She is having "the surgery" at 11:15 this morning.  My heart just breaks for her. She has walked down this road before (I think she was 5-6 weeks) and did not require surgery.  Then God gave her sweet Kaleb. I am praying for God's will through all of this, but as I type she is going through one of the most difficult  things a mother can live through. Please pray her name is Tosha.

Thank You from the bottom of my heart

The past 6 months I have truly lived a dream. A dream of becoming a mommy and having a healthy baby boy. Today I thank my Father in Heaven from the bottom of my heart. I am so grateful and blessed to tears.

SIDS Awareness

I wanted to show some love to Kellie some happy birthday love. It is a little late, but I didn't know it was her birthday and I did not know her story until today. She is one strong chickie! Her story is one that no mom every wants to live. Through her loss she is educating other moms about SIDS. One of her post talks about ways to reduce SIDS. She is also educating other parents on the Bebesafe mattress covers.
Please share the info with anyone you know that has little ones.
