Happy Leap Day!

"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

Today is the day that offers you 24 of the EXTRA BONUS HOURS you've been praying for!

I know that my to-do list is often miles long, and I pray that God will give me some extra time to work on those tasks that I never seem to accomplish.

Today is the day! February 29 - only comes around every 4 years, but I sure am happy to see it here today!

I have some tasks to tackle today, but I am also going to say some extra prayers as I work!

I am pricing some items to sell at our MOPS consignment sale this weekend. I am going to pray over each item, that it will bless whomever buys it and takes it home! That the mom or grandmother who buys the item will be blessed by the savings, and that the children who wear or play with the items will be blessed as well!

As I am cleaning out these things from my home, I will pray over my children, in thanksgiving that they have had the experiences with these toys and clothes, and that God has blessed us abundantly with so many things!

I will also get a FREE cup of coffee from McDonald's today (you can get one too!). As I go through the drive-thru, I will pray for the employees in the restaurant, that they be blessed, as well as the people in line with me.

What will you do with your extra day?

I pray that you will be blessed, and rejoice in the EXTRA day the Lord has given us!
Be Glad!

Plan What is Good!

I love to plan events, parties, and fun things for my children to do. Apparently, God is telling me that I will find LOVE and Faithfulness if I plan things that are good! Hooray! I needed that in my life right now! So - plan something nice and good for someone close to you, or for yourself! Not only will you be a blessing through your planning and forethought, but you will reap Love and Faithfulness from God! How can you go wrong! "Do not those who plot evil go astray? But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness." Proverbs 14:22

Getting Kids to Brush Their Teeth!

My children love to brush their teeth, but do not always remember to do so!
When they do remember to brush their teeth, they don't always do the best job of getting all of the germs off.

My daughter is pretty meticulous when she wants to be, but usually has better things to do, like read a book.
So, she rushes through the brushing process.
My oldest son takes his time, but usually misses some spots.
The youngest, well, he just likes the taste of the toothpaste, and tries to get away with sucking it off the brush.

That said, I stand with them in the bathroom, inspecting their teeth as the brush.
Crazy, I know. But I am the meanest mom, ever, you know!
I received a very nice email from the following website, asking if I would add their widget to my blog.
I looked into it, and my children LOVE it!

This site offers some printable Toothbrush charts that you can personalize with your child's name!

Check it out!!

Lent - Fasting = Forgiving and GIVEAWAY GIVING!

Today is Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of the Season of Lent!

During Lent, most Christians Fast (abstain from something, especially meat), and give up things that are "extra" in their lives. I have given up chocolate, pop, meat, credit cards, and even my computer in the past.

This year, I have decided on a different focus - based on the following verse from the Bible:

"The kind of fasting I want is this: Remove the chains of oppression and the yoke of injustice, and let the oppressed go free. Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives. Then my favor will shine on you like the morning sun, and your wounds will be quickly healed. I will always be with you to save you; my presence will protect you on every side." Isaiah 58:6-8 (Good News Translation (GNT))

I am going to GIVE AWAY something to someone every day of Lent this year.

Today, I am giving my husband a card with a message written straight from my heart about how much I appreciate him. Simple, inexpensive, but meaningful and giving.

I want God's favor to shine on me, and through me, blessing all of those I come in contact with - in person, and on this blog!

So....I am giving away a 31 Gifts Prize to one lucky reader!

Thirty-One Gifts is a business founded on the "Proverbs 31 Wife" - leading women to provide financially for their families while selling products that bless their homes, and the lives of their customers as well. To read more about the Proverbs 31 Wife, click here.

Prayers for the President

Happy President's Day! One of my children wants to be President of the United States when he grows up. My other son still does not know what the President is or what he does. The Presidency is one of the hardest jobs in the world, and I would not take the job for millions of dollars. Our nation was founded "Under God" and God still chooses leaders for us that serve His higher purpose, although it may not appear that way! Today I would like to pray for our President, Barack Obama, and his family. Although I did not vote for him, and do not agree with many of his policies or actions, I still pray for him and his leadership of our nation. Dear Lord, Please protect our president's heart, and lead him to keep our nation within Your strength and power. Guide his decisions, actions, and rulings, as he deals with all of the leaders of Your world. Hold his tongue, and send Your words to his mind, that less will be seen of Mr. Obama, and MORE of YOU will be seen in our peoples and land. Amen "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence." 1 Timothy 2:1-2

Valentine's Cards for Kids

My children are giving Valentine's Cards to their classmates at school.
Spending tons of money on cheap cards is not high on my priority list.
So, I searched Pinterest for some crafty ideas - and found this one!

I took pictures of my kiddos with their hands held out in a fist. (To get them to hold their hands like that, I had them hide a tootsie roll in their fist, and they got to eat it after we got a good photo of each of them.)

We had fun!

Then, I added some text, hearts, and borders to the photos before having them printed at Walgreens for only $5.00 for 50 prints!

We found some lollipops for a good price to add to them by making a small slit on the top and bottom of the fist on each photo.

Now my children have personalized Valentine Cards to give their friends and it did not cost any more than the cheap little cardboard cards you find at retail stores!
