Just a thought and a little catch up

So I realize it has been forever but as some of you may know I have dial-up internet in the great city of Autaugaville, and I really don't have much time to blog at school, so that kind of takes time away from the blog.  Not much is going on around here we are just working and enjoying every minute we can with this sweet little girl

Pretty much every photo has her tongue sticking out now
I wanted to share a little something I read the other day and what it meant to me.

God’s strong name is our help.”  Psalm 124:8

You have a ticket to heaven no thief can take, an eternal home no divorce can break. Every sin of your life has been cast to the sea. Every mistake you’ve made is nailed to the tree. You’re blood-bought and heaven-made. A child of God—forever saved. So be grateful, joyful—for isn’t it true? What you don’t have is much less than what you do.

How powerful is that there is nothing I can I can do to be separated from the Him.  The things I don't have are much less than what I do. I have all I will ever need in Jesus Chris.  It doesn't matter if my child has the greatest clothes, the most expensive toys, or a fancy bed to sleep in. What matters most is I teach her about her Heavenly Father that will be there for her when everyone else will turn away. It doesn't matter if I have a 3000 square foot brand new house or a two bedroom block house. It matters that I love my husband with all of my heart and serve God with all that I have wherever I live.  Really in the grand scheme of things that is all that matters.  I am truly blessed beyond belief and I just need to be reminded of that sometimes.

I hope you all have a great weekend.  I am super excited because I get to go spend the whole day, just me and my mom, going to Birmingham to see Les Miserables.  I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  I will miss Mattie terribly but I am sure she will be just fine with her Daddy.
