Dear Baby Girl,

Dear Baby Girl, 

Wow have the years flown by!  Just the other day you told me your graduating June 19, 2015. How can that be? How can you be graduating high school?  Didn't I just graduate high school a few years ago?

I need more time raising you. There's so much I recently learned that I need to teach you...things you may not want to hear but nevertheless things you need to know. 

As you read this letter please keep an open mind. Know that I love you with all of my heart and I wouldn't be telling you these things if they were not true. 

This brings me to the first and most important thing I want you to know.  I know you know how much I love you and how important you are to me. There is someone who actually loves you more than I could ever love you, that is God. 

See love is a verb. Something that is shown like when I make your favorite dinner, bring you somewhere, or buy you a special gift. Well, God gave you a special gift and that's Jesus. 

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

1 John 4:9-10

There is nothing that you can do or have done that will change the way God loves you. Think of it like this, there are times you have done things that have not made me happy but no matter what I never stopped loving you. That is how God loves you baby girl!

Who me, old fashion?

In the past year I made a lot of changes with the way I view things. I'm working on making my life more Christian centered.

I was pregnant my senior year of high school which surprised many because I was the quiet one in school. I had my daughter 3 months after I graduated. A year later I became a single mother.

I was a very strong independent women and raised my daughter to be that way.  My husband and I were married a few months before my daughter turned 8 years old.  I didn't NEED a husband, I CHOOSE to have a husband and that's what I used to tell my him when we fought. Actually, I use to say, "The door is right there.  I don't need you.  I was single mom once before I can do it again!" Prideful? Yes!  See I was a stay at home mom when my daughter's father and I broke up, so everything I had, I earned myself as a single mom. I was determined not to be in hurt again.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.
Ephesians 2: 8-9

Thank God for His gift!

I always believed in Jesus but never lived a Christian centered life nor knew what that really meant till recently.  My husband and I found a wonderful church and have made a lot of changes in our lives in the last year. I don't mind submitting(Oh boy there's that nasty word lol)to my husband, letting him lead the family, and giving up most control(I'm still working on this).  I work but I no longer mind staying home and cleaning the house.

I used to consider myself a Democrat. I felt like they cared more about the needy. You know just like Jesus.  I felt like the Republicans only cared about themselves.  I no longer consider myself a Democrat because I feel like they don't follow the bible.  Yes, they care for the needy which I love(yes, some "needy" don't deserve the help because in actuality they're just lazy but I'm not talking about them)but there are so many other things they believe in that I'm totally against.

So would I call myself a conservative because they supposedly believe in the bible?  That just didn't sit well in what my pastor calls my knower. Then I started thinking these terms really only describe political parties.  I'm really not trying to describe my political stance but trying to describe my moral stance.  Could my new ways of thinking be old fashion? It's pretty funny to think of me as old fashion.  I think a great way to describe who I'm becoming is traditional, maybe just maybe a little old  fashion?

So it is safe to say that this blog will be changing, maybe even the name.  
Stay tuned......
