    I know I am behind on this post but well I have finally figured out finding the photos on my computer.  I took each picture and put it in a folder on my desktop.  It was a long process and I know you've been waiting now I am happy to share some pictures from our spring break trip to the Pigeon Forge area of Tennessee.

     Have you ever had an aha moment with the Lord.  Well I have just been having many lately and I am thanking Him for everything that He is showing me.  The other day I had a long time friend text me just not happy with her life at this time.  I couldn't think of much to say at the time since this happens ever so often. She isn't married and has no children but wants that.  All of a sudden today my life verse popped into to my head as to why didn't I tell her to read it.  I immediately texted her and told her to read it.  She was thankful for me sending it to her.  I am thankful to God that He used me at that time to speak to her and encourage her with that verse.  I am often apprehensive when it comes to speaking of my faith and I don't know why but I can see God working in me to change that.  By the way here is my verse that I have to go to often when I think nothing is happening in my life:

 Jeremiah 29:11-13 
     For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

     Secondly, I asked you all to pray for my husbands company to pick Texas to build the new plant in.  Well I want to give you some background.  I have been wanting to leave SC and be closer to my family for almost 3yrs.  Last year I started voicing my wants to my husband.  He was totally against leaving and it wasn't a happy situation in my house.  After talking to my sweet Soul Sisters (a Bible study accountability group I am a part of) I decided to follow the leadership of my husband and put my wants to rest but continued to pray for his heart to change and the move to happen.  I hadn't mentioned moving to Texas for a while when he came home and told me about the building of a new plant.  He even told me he would do it so we could be closer to family.  I knew then that it was God showing me He heard me through him.  Now I know that it could or couldn't happen but God is giving me little glimpses of Him hearing my prayers.  What are you praying about?  How is God showing you His work in your life?

 Well everyone if you are a praying person and know lots of other praying people then I need your help.  My husbands company is deciding to open another plant and have four choices at this time Tn, Tx, Va, and here.  I haven't said it before but life here isn't what I expected and I have been wanting to move back closer to my family and move to Tx.  My husband has alway said NO.  Well with this new plant possibility he has said that if they choose Tx. then he would put in to go to that plant and we could move.  He said that it will boil down to what state will offer the most money to build.  Now this is where I need your help.  I so want Tx to be the state that offers the most so we can possibly move.  I ask that you and anyone you know will pray that Tx will be the state they choose and that we can move and be where we am closer to my family.  My family is much more close knit than my hubby's.  Tx would be in the middle for both of us.  I have been praying and I think that this is a glimmer from God that he has heard my prayers.  Thank you in advance for all of your prayers.

I'm Confused

     So I have been trying to figure this out for some days and just can't seem to.  I uploaded all the pictures from Spring break onto the computer.  When I tried to create a post and add pictures I couldn't find the pictures.  Now I went to Iphoto and they are in there but when I try to add them I don't see them anywhere.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  By the way I forgot to add that I also did something I never do and erased the pics off of my memory card.  That definitely wasn't the smartest choice.  I do however have some baseball pics and other spring pictures so here they are.

It's over

     Spring Break that is.  I had a good time in Ten. and can't wait to go back.  My kids were surprised and even happier to see that their cousins were joining us.  I will be posting some pics from the trip later this week once I get them uploaded.

     Yesterday was Funday Sunday at my church.  This is like a carnival with rides and games that are free and dinner for the 3 kids and myself for $10.00.  We had a blast.  The kids got their faces painted and rode rides and played games.  They still had enough energy when we got home to throw the baseball around.  Gotta love the energy of kids.  I wish I could have it again.

Ok first just disregard my last post it was a silly mistake on my part.

   Well Spring break officially starts here on Monday but we are heading out today to Sevierville,Tn to meet my sister in law and her family for some fun.  We are staying at the Wyndham Great Smokies Lodge and I am soooooooo excited.  We haven't told the kids which makes it even more exciting.  I have never been to the Smoky Mountains and am hoping to get some great photo opportunities.  I would love to have some as good as Sarah did.   Needless to say I will be gone for Spring break and my plan is to get some pictures of the trip and what I have been working on here in the house later.  I can't wait to show you the great subway art that I won from Jamie.  I know it's taking me forever but hey I'm new to this decorating deal so slow and steady slow I am going.   Thank you for putting up with me and for all your feedback that you give.  I really appreciate the followers I have and look forward to the growth of this blog.

If you are on spring break ENJOY I know I will!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
