There has been a whole lot of no knitting in my life . I have gone yarn shopping for a cowl and a scarf , but I have yet to cast on for those . I really want new socks, but I have not cast on for those . I'm working part time substitute teaching so that takes about 3 or 4 days of my week , then I have church Monday night for a couple hours, Wednesday night and sometimes on Friday for youth. Then I have me time which involves me playing ipad games , or reading . My life is not very exciting but it's what I enjoy and it just works.
Don did buy me new furniture a couple weeks ago and it is so nice to have something no one else has ever sat on. We have always had used furniture , so this was a real treat for us. We have replaced everything now that I had when I was single over 10 years ago . It's a nice feeling knowing that we have built a life together and gotten rid of old memory's from my past.
I'm hoping that this summer while our daughter is gone on youth camp we can take a nice vacation together , maybe a honeymoon :)

Well October rolled by with no big events and I decided that November would be the month I would go with out Facebook and twitter. This was because I wanted to focus more on life, family and mostly God. I feel like these two things take my attention and mind anyway from the most important things in my life. So I decided that my blog should get more attention so I can blog about daily life.
I'm so thankful for extra time so I can knit. I'm trying to work on some lace sock I started last year, but I can't Find the notes I had with them so I'm having a hard time starting them. I may end up frogging them and starting over.
This friday I will be headed to lady's conference here in Tulsa, and I'm so excited. I will see one of my girlfriends I have not seen in over 15 years! It will be so nice to be around Godly woman and just rejoice in the lord.

It seems since I rejoined the church in November of last year, my life has changed so very much in just 8 months. Everything I do and say is about Jesus. I know this comes as a shock to a lot of people, but you don't understand the power of change God gives you when you receive the Holy Ghost. See, I am a One God, Apostolic, Holy Ghost Filled woman, Or simple terms, I am United Pentecostal. We believe in One God, Repentance, Being baptized in Jesus name, with the infilling of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It has forever changed my life and I am so thankful for it. I know this blog started out 4 years ago as a knitting blog with blackberry and weight loss content, but I have to tell you it is now a personal walk with Jesus blog. I feel like writing down what God does for me on a daily basis will help someone out there with their journey and uplift them. We can not walk with God and not tell others of the greatness of what he does.
He has delivered me from drinking, smoking, being self centered, none caring, depressed, buying of electronics and other meaningless things. He is my rock and I will stand on him for all my needs.
I have to say since being in church my friends have all fell by the waste side. They don't understand why I don't want to see Magic Mike, or go to a party and drink. All I can say is, I want to live a Holy life without all the things that will keep me from walking closer to God. We have to be separate from the world so they will see our light shine. If we were not separate, how would they know we we different?
I'm sorry if this offends anyone that doesn't believe in God or that you don't have to change anything about your self to serve the Lord. My intent is to journal my Faith and my life to help those that seek the truth.

Well I have not posted since Christmas and it is now April 28th, 2012.. A lot has happened in that time frame. On January 28th, Don and I got married at our local church :) what a great day it was. We had about 40 people come to the wedding and had a small reception with food and picture taking. It was a perfect small wedding and I could not ask for anymore than that. We had planned on going to Branson, Missouri for our honeymoon but when we stopped in Springfield , Missouri to see Don's mom that had been sick, we realized she was more than sick, she was dying. We stayed a week with her and she passed on Feb 6, 2012.. It was a fast and aggressive lung cancer and It just was the worst thing I have ever seen. We never did get a honeymoon or to celebrate our wedding because we were just so sad over the loss of his mother. If you smoke, STOP now while you are healthy. No one should die like that.
Also in February our 12 year old daughter was baptized in Jesus name at our local church.. Talk about excited , she was on cloud 9 for days after that. we are very proud of her for making the big step into adult hood and taking her faith further.
I also found out that I am going to be a grandma for the first time. My oldest son Dean and his wife are expecting a baby boy in June . I am so very excited to see the little guy and see him grow up.. Who would have thought I would be old enough to be a grandma,lol..
No knitting has been going on since December or before. I just have not had the drive to pick it up and I think its one of those things were life gets in the way all the time. I have started reading more and spend a lot of time at church during the week. but I do miss knitting. Its just one of those things were I need to sit down and do it again.
I have been working at the local schools as a sub, but that ends in a couple weeks so I will have to find a full time job to get me threw the summer. I am really praying God finds me the right job and I won't have to struggle with all the wrong ones. I will try and post here more often. I seem to still use facebook and twitter alot more than my blog, but blogging is a good outlet for me to get my thoughts out on paper , short of.....
Have a great weekend all..
This was a dear Online friend that passed yesterday morning.. I can not tell you how very sad I am that we will never get to talk again. She forever changed my life .
