Here I raise my Ebenezer - AnotherThink

Here I raise my Ebenezer - AnotherThink

Click on the Here I raise my Ebenezer to see the article I am referring too:) I said that for people like me:)

Alex has been preaching on Ebenezer, I thought what is Ebenezer??? Since I had missed the first Sunday, I was in the dark.  I thought not sure what it is, then last Sunday when I went, I thought he said when preaching it was a a time of hell, I thought well I do have those times, but when it went on the over head it said HELP:)  So read the article and think on the Ebenezer's in your life:)

I do have a few, I think as you are older you may have more, one of course is when I was saved, one when I married, God for sure reached down and put Steve and I together and has kept us together. The next would probably be when Wyatt my first grandson was premature and did not survive, the next when Jared had cancer, the next when Steve and I had a major marriage malfunction, the next my mother having Alzheimer's and passing away.....which brings me to today:)  In all the areas, they were life changing to me, shook me to the core of my beliefs, I questioned the Lord, I wanted to run away, I turned to myself for my own way of coping, I put myself on a defense mold of survival, which means I shut others out, GOD WAS and ALWAYS HAS BEEN FAITHFUL to me, He knows me inside and out and knows how I will react, He listens to me, hears my cry, He leads me to the rock that is higher then I, which is HIM.  I was so angry in some of these times at the Lord, I questioned him, fought him, begged him, then gave into the fact there is nothing I can do, I have no place to run, Jesus is all I have and He is the only one who can help me, falling at his feet, I surrendered to him over and over and over again.  Yep these are my Ebenezer's!  I am sure I will have more Ebenezer's in my life as I am only 59:) but one thing I know, He will be faithful to me in it all, always is, always has been and always will be.  What are your Ebenezer's?  can you see past where you are at?  If not know that God has you in the palm of HIS hand, a lot of times, we question is God even real, is this just something I believe because I was taught this, is the bible even real?   Then we have these times when everything will fail us, but the one thing left standing in our life is the Lord, yes He is real, yes the bible is real and yes, you will know He holds you in the palm of HIS hand!!  Hugs

WOW Jan 12th...........

I rang in the New the tune of being sick with the flu, been in PJ's at home since Jan.1st., I do not even know anyone I was  around that was sick:((  But its in the air.....

I have literally been in the bed or on the couch or in my chair, I have worked what I could from the house and used others legs:)  Missed our first sales meeting of the year:(  Our kick off meeting is this Tuesday, since I was not even around the office, it has all been planned, normally I take part in it all, it feels good just to walk in and not have anything to do, also feels good to know others pick up your part when your sick.

Which reminds me..............something that was said to me along time ago, in a marriage it is 100/100 not 50/50...........due to the fact it will not all be covered if one is falling short, but if you both give 100% then it is always covered:)  How I feel my co-workers are for me.  Very Thankful

Getting loans closed this month, on Wed., I thought I felt better went to a closing, Steve went with me, good thing, I got a migraine and was so sick could not wait to get back home in my bed, realized I was not as well as I thought, so I did not get out again until Friday, was weak but listed a home, need it sold by Monday:) no fever since Thursday am, feeling better today, can tell I am not at 100% but much much glad!  No one likes being sick. The only good thing is it has helped me get back on healthy eating habits!

Rain, Rain, Rain today here in Sherwood, it's a quiet morning, Cole man spent the night, Sean and Sarah were here early to get him to go to Stuttgart. Cole fell asleep last night on the floor playing, I want to post pics but for some reason my blog will not let me, gonna have to figure that out:((  During the night, he whispered NANA, I said what, he said, are aliens real?  I said no, did you have a bad dream? he said yeah...I said then lets think on your four wheeler and at pop's house riding it, he said ok,that is a good dream:) SO SO SWEET!  Max had a serious eye infection which put him in the ER all night, they did IV antibiotics and he will go back tomorrow for another round of IV antibiotics, it started swelling, Mark took him to a clinic, who gave oral antibiotics and drops but told Mark if it got worse go to ER it would be serious, so at 2am Hannah called and was coming here with them all, thought he may have to be admitted and she has no help there, but decided to go there and if he had to be admitted she would come here, so thankful he is ok:)

I have a listing appointment today, and showing a home, pretty light day which is probably still real good so I will stay well.  Tomorrow church, which I can not wait for, I missed last two weeks, and then open house, wish it would sell today:) 
Jared and Jenn have a weekend alone, her mother has her girls, so fun for them:)  not sure if I said the BIG news.......Alexandria got accepted to University of GO HOGS!!! She is so excited, she will try out for cheer leader there, she is working hard on getting her self perfected to meet the requirements to be a HOG Cheerleader.

Not much else going on, still missing mother, but still receiving God's grace, be glad when days can go by without missing her:) I do not remember missing daddy this much, but I was much younger 18 yrs old, so I am sure I was caught up in me.

Looking forward to a good year in Real Estate! Setting my goals for 2013, personal, spiritual, business. Figuring out what to share with the company at the Kick Off meeting, we have a guest speaker but I  will share on Never Giving UP:) got a good video of Alexandria making a perfect example of working hard to succeed:)  I need listings, our market is down on homes for sale, have more buyers then help me pray em in!! hugs and make it a fun day!

2012 is past, 2013 will be a blast! can not post pics will later:(

Had a fun New Year's with Hannah and Mark, Pat and Donald and Sherry Maxwell, we all went to Sam's Town, never been there on New Year's, it was loud, they did a balloon drop, had a band, it was a good band, but I guess I am getting to old, it was loud and I was ready for bed, it did not help that I have a cold:(  I stayed in the bed most of Sunday, then went to dinner, meet with Pat and Donald, then stayed in bed all of Monday, watched NCIS marathon, then waited and waited and waited till the clock struck mid night! I cannot even remember when I have been awake at midnight:)

We gave Hannah and Mark 100  each to spend and they tripled their money, I realize some may wonder how I can gamble and some believe I should go straight to hell for it:)  I guess I will leave that to me and the Lord, I can promise you that if God said do not go I would not step a foot in there or any where else he has said do not go, in which He has said to me before:) Its not a problem for me and I may not go back for months, who knows I may never go back, just leaving that up to me and the Lord:) Just like me and dancing, I love, love, love to dance, and I do every chance I get, at weddings, our company's party, at home....etc., matter of fact I am going to get that work out to dance music so I will enjoy working out:) 

We got up and came home New Year's Day, too tired to take down Christmas, plus not feeling too good still, so happy to be away from cigarette smoke, it about did me in. Praying my family and friends who smoke can quit this year, they want to stop:) Washed my clothes and my self got on my PJ'S and enjoyed the McGill babies till Hannah and Mark got here then went to bed, showed property the next day and got way to cold:(( Stayed in all day yesterday ( Thursday ), did get my Christmas decor put away, I have never had it out this long, always do it by end of year, but we were in and out so much the end of December.  I had my sweet friend who cleans for me come today so the house is spotless and I am in PJ's hoping to just stay in this weekend and get well, I did get three sales this week, so that is exciting, even though it bout made me sicker:((( This weekend Steve will have to show anyone who calls because I am really taking bed rest to heed, I have to get well:)  This cough is about to break my ribs:) for real.....:)
I put out my Valentine's decor:)) I love Holiday's and to decorate, esp when I can use red, I love red! I have got to get my self back on eating healthy, I have totally ate anything I wanted all of December, no discipline at all:(( and I feel it, I am sluggish, pants a little tight:( just too much sugar, so its back on the wagon for me! I have got my work in order, loans ready to close, just need to get some new listings:) So I will work on that next week, just staying in this weekend and getting well.....I have had some lonely times missing mother but I know that is a normal part of  life and death:( but I sure do miss her:(    I just remind my self she is a part of me and I will see her again someday:)  Hugs and nite
