Oh, and FYI, Idol is on again~

I am embarking on a new season of Idol. I am not as into it this year as I was last year. Although the auditions can be quite amusing. I am hoping that it is a good season. I loved the other day when it was on they were playing "I can only imagine" Yay for Idol! I am rooting for "Lil Rounds" hence her name. I don't know if there is any relation but it's cool to have someone on there with my last name! She can BELT IT OUT! Man can she sing! I am not saying she is the best, just that I am rooting for her! Anywho... enough about Idol for now.

How are all of you doing on your New Years resolutions?

Well, I am curious to how all of you are doing on your new years resolutions? I have been doing really good on one! I have not watched a single soap since the new year! YAY ME! Um as far as the bible reading I am doing ok, I have been chugging away. I don't do so hot when I wait till evening to read, which is the best time for hubby and I to do it together. But pray for me in that area. I am trying. Um and on the weight thing, well I think I have lost a pound, MAYBE? Still trying hopefully it will all work out. I need to lose some of this "baby fat"! LOL the question is when officially do we have to stop calling it "baby fat"? N E way tell me how all of you are doing on your resolutions?

New Look at Life!

Since my MIL passed I have been thinking a lot! A whole lot about eternity! And about how I want to live my life from this point on. I thought I would share some of the things I have been thinking about.

I have decided that I NEED to put GOD #1 in my life! Yes I have claimed to do this in the past(and have honestly made an effort at it, with lots of failures), but I am really sincerely devoted now! I have never been this determined before. I am going to try to make every decision according to what I know HE wants me to do. I have been struggling with a few issues in my life lately, some of which I have to quit, some of which I need to be better at doing! (such as reading my Bible)! I would covet your prayers in this time!

I have never looked at life this way before. I have decided that there is NOTHING on this earth that is worth going to HELL over! NOTHING AT ALL! I don't care what it is that God may "ask" me to give up! I am HIS! I want to make it to HEAVEN! I have never had that ASSURED feeling before. I always thought that people who claimed that were ridiculously arrogant! But when God says something He means it. In the scripture there is a verse that states that we can KNOW we have eternal life! (I Jn 5:13) So obviously I was missing something! It's not arrogance at all to KNOW that God is right. IT'S FAITH! I believe with all my heart that we can KNOW we are saved by believing God's word, and obeying what it says! I think that before I had things in my life that were between Him and I and that was why I didn't KNOW! Things that I wouldn't give up. Things that were holding me back! Not that I was a "horrible wicked" person, just that I wasn't SOLD OUT for God! Not whole heartily devoted to HIM! I honestly believe that my life will change tremendously. I think that not only with the changes that I am going to make, there will be changes in my family life because of it and my marriage as well! GOD IS GOOD!

I think God has been working on me for a LONG time and he has given me this new outlook for a reason! I am so excited about my future in Him!! Thanks for all of you that have prayed for me in the past, and I hope you will continue to do so!

Pray for Kylen!

I babysit a 11 month old, Kylen, that is in the hospital for dehydration! He isn't doing well and they can't figure out what is wrong. He has had 27 poopy dipes in 1 day! Please pray for him. He tends to be in the hospital a lot for that. I will keep you updated on new news. Thanks in advance for your prayers!
