Thought for the day...

Marriage is not about finding the right person, it's about being the right person. You can NOT be the right person if your heart is filled with anger, hurt, bitterness and resentment, there is no room for love. You can not be taught how to love, you have to experience it. The first step is to acknowledge that your heart is hurt. These hurts will leave a fossil like impression that can't be removed without the help of CHRIST. Making it impossible for someone to occupy a place in your heart. Turning "I do's" into "I don't". Then we start to blame the other person. "I thought he/she was the one", "she/he is not what I thought he/she would be." When all along, our hearts couldn't conceive it or receive it. God holds marriages to a high regard and HE wants them to work. ANY marriage can work because of HIS covenant. You don't have to be the "right one" you have to be the "correct one", and God will make that happen IF you want HIM to. So at the end of the day, don't go searching for Mr./Mrs. Right, be Mr./Mrs. Right and you will be drawn to a like spirit/characteristic which in turn will have you to become "the right one".

Changing lives..1 pound at a time!!

We all have something about our bodies that need tweaking, and if you don't, your health needs it. I, along with my friends, family and teammates have found something GREAT!!! The 90 day body by Vi Challenge!! I've never been the one who needed to lose weight, except right after my kids. I was always interested in gaining a pound or two! After being diagnosed with MS, my health became a HUGE factor! After gaining 5lbs, and helping my ENTIRE immediate family, a LOT of my distant family, friends, teammates and strangers to transform their bodies, it became a no brainer to get into the business as a challenge promoter!! Take a look at the before and after pics of my friends, family and teammates who participated in the 90 day body transformation challenge!!

Even the President is down for Visalus!!!!!!!

Justin's Born Day!

My babies (Morgan 2, Justin the birthday boy 6, and Tyler 11)

Justin is by far a comedian!! Over the years he has said some things that have stuck with me, I had to share them before I start to forget! I hope you enjoyed his lil comments as I ALWAYS do! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUSTIN!!!!! MOMMY LOVES YOU!!!!

1, "Oh snap grandma!!! We can't get up!" - Justin age 3, he and his grandma were on an air mattress.
2, "Hey mommy, here's the thing for your muscles. Yours are sooo much bigger than daddies". - Justin age 3, bringing me my bra!! smh
3, "I'm going to be quiet now, I'm talking away all my fresh breath". - Justin age 5, after brushing his teeth.
4, "Mommy is it today or tomorrow?" - Justin age 5, after hearing me tell him, "you can play the wii tomorrow". smh...again. lol
5, "Mommy you are out of your twenties?? I thought when you get out of your twenties you die!" - Justin age 5, 2 weeks ago!
6, I asked Justin on the first day of school if he made any friends. And his comment to me, which is my favorite is.........." It's too early, I haven't decided on who I'm going to pick yet".

That comment made me realize that way tooo often we let our friends chose us, when we are supposed to chose them! From the mouth of a babe! Love you Justin!

One Nation Under GOD!

A Pastor with GUTS!

Thought you might enjoy this interesting
prayer given in Kansas at
the opening session of their Senate. It seems
prayer still upsets some
people.. When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open
the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usualgeneralities, but this is

what they heard:

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask
your forgiveness and to seek your direction and
guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those
who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we
have done.

We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed
our values.

We have exploited the poor and called it
the lottery.

We have rewarded laziness and called it

We have killed our unborn and called it

We have shot abortionists and called it

We have neglected to discipline our
children and called it building self esteem....

We have abused power and called it

We have coveted our neighbor's possessions
and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and
pornography and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values
of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts
today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.

The response was immediate. A number of
legislators walked out during the prayer in
protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian
Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, logged more than
5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls
responding negatively. The church is now receiving
international requests for copies of this prayer
from India , Africa and Korea .

Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on
his radio program, 'The Rest of the Story,'and
received a larger response to this program than any
other he has ever aired.

With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep
over our nation and wholeheartedly become our
desire so that we again can be called 'one nation
under God.'
