Okay God, I hear you

So today I posted a blog about the verse in the Bible that talks about rejoicing in the day the Lord has given us. Now tonight before I go to bed, I was reading my paper and look at what I came across....Just another reminder that God is always there and listening to me. I just had a V-8 moment, DUH!

Thank you Lord for never giving up on me and for your gentle reminders that show me that you hear me!! I am truly blessed!!


This is the Day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!!

I am trying so hard to make this my motto today even though I woke up in a surly mood!! Okay, I went to bed in a surly mood too, it's just not a good week! Actually the week is fine, it's my attitude that sucks! I don't know what it is but I am just one depressed lady this week! Nothing makes me happy and everything is wrong so I need to do a little self reflection and write down how "terrible" my life really is!!

Still no job for Jason in Savannah
~Reality: My husband has a good paying job and does have a job!!

Child got in trouble at school for lack of supplies
~Reality: I had the money to go buy supplies and now child is all set

Kids grumbled and complained as I put dinner on the table last night
~Reality: At least they have food to grumble and complain about, thank you God for our food!

Kids are being ornery with me and each other
~Reality: I have 4 healthy kids that have energy and are blessed with parents and siblings that love each other, even when they don't show it!

Stupid dogs woke me up at 5:40 this morning
~Reality: I can always take a nap later :-)

Bonus happy thoughts:
~Starbucks coffee in my coffee pot each morning
~Hubby who loves me, respects me, and listens to me whine
~Oktoberfest coming this weekend

REALITY: What am I complaining about. Is my life really that terrible?! No, so suck it up Bekah and rejoice in the day the Lord has given you! He hears my cries and has my best interest at heart, I know God loves me and watches over me...I just feel so alone sometimes!! Ugh! Well, at least I am trying right?! Right! So, I am going to go out there and have an awesome Wednesday...or at least try!!

A Real Man

Got this in an e-mail and just had to post! Funny!! :-)

A real man is a woman's best friend. He will never stand her up and never let her down. He will reassure her when she feels insecure and comfort her after a bad day. He will inspire her to do things she never thought she could do; to live without fear and forget regret. He will enable her to express her deepest emotions and give in to her most intimate desires. He will make sure she always feels as though she's the most beautiful woman in the room and will enable her to be the most confident, sexy, seductive, and invincible.
No wait... sorry... I'm thinking of wine.
It’s wine that does all that.......
Never mind.
