|Doesn't it look yummy?!?|
|Trinity has been loving sidewalk chalk. She said the squares with lines were people? Ha! She has her daddy's art gene!|

The house gets a mess. I become unglued.
Titus whines and won't stop. I become unglued.
A glass of milk gets spilled on the floor. I become unglued.
There are days that when every little thing doesn't go my way, I lose it!
Last week, I was doing "school work" with Trinity. She has been having trouble sounding out words that start with "th" correctly.
We were doing her school work when it was her nap time. She was sleepy and wasn't even trying. She could not sound out the words correctly and had stopped even trying. I became UNGLUED! We were both a crying mess. I had to pray and ask forgiveness and apologize to poor little Trinity.
And I hate that feeling.
But, I am so thankful that I serve a God who forgives. And not only does He forgive, He also helps us with our problem!
Yesterday in church, I was asked to sing. I felt like I needed to sing, "Who Am I" by Casting Crowns. I was singing it and I just started crying right in the middle of the song. (I am sure the people having to listen to me really thought I was crazy!) But I got to thinking... Who am I that the eyes that see my sin would look on me with LOVE?!? and watch me rise again. Who am I? That the voice that calms the sea, would call out through the rain, and calm the storm in me.
That part got me. There have been so many times it has felt like there was, not just a storm, but maybe a full blown hurricane going on inside me. And I felt like I was going to explode! But, I can call on Jesus and He calms me. And not just that, He helps me not to do it again. If He knows we really want to change, He will help us.
I am so thankful for salvation, but I am also so thankful that Jesus didn't save us and say, "There you go. You are saved now, try and live the best you know how. I'll just be sitting here watching you. Waiting for you to mess up so I can hit you over the head until you get it right!"
He doesn't do that. He is constantly here, leading me. Guiding me. Helping me when I am wrong.
There is a book out now called, Unglued. I want to download it so bad! I think it will really help me. Have any of you ever read it?
Well, I have opened my heart to you guys. I hope you don't think too bad of me. Becoming unglued is something Jesus and I are really working on. I am so glad prayer works!

Anyways... tonight I had a spare minute so I wanted to share this story that happened tonight!
|This is Trinity with her Build-a-Bears, Sarah the Panda, Princess the Rabbit, and Trixie the Bear.|
|And I thought I'd throw in a picture of this cute little guy!|

Are we already 7 days into March?!? Wow!
I would have to say that my dream job would be being a stay-at-home mom. I love it and I don't care how much more money we would have or how much more stuff we would have if I had a "real job", I wouldn't trade being a SAHM for anything!
I love doing photography and selling Scentsy. And I get to do it from home!
One day I do plan on starting an Etsy store though! I already have the name picked out. I plan on calling it Far Above Rubies Children's Boutique. I love to make childrens' clothing and accessories!
So... that's all for today!

Okay. So I will just start out by saying that we do not own a tv, nor do we watch movies.
Therefore, I do not have a favorite movie or show or anything of the sort.
And no, we are not Amish.
We do, however, let the kids watch Veggie Tales or learning DVDs. Things that will teach them. We also limit that because we do not think kids (or adults) should sit in front of a screen all day.
Random side note... It's snowing here!!!!!!
