The Wife Must Respect her Husband

“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:33 (NIV 1984)

It will never cease to amaze me how I'm dealing with an issue and things will just pop out at me that relate specifically to what I am dealing with. He is truly amazing and I do not know why I continue to doubt His power. Doubt isn't exactly the right word cause I do NOT doubt God's power. I guess I just forget about it sometimes.

Is God Talking to YOU?

I came across something the other day and it made me realize that He is indeed talking to ME.

The man whispered, "God, speak to me," and a meadowlark

But, the man did not hear. So the man yelled, "God, speak to
me" and the thunder rolled across the sky.

But, the man did not listen. The man looked around and said,
"God let me see you." And a star shined brightly.

But the man did not see. And, the man shouted, "God show
me a miracle." And, a life was born.

But, the man did not notice. So, the man cried out in despair,
"Touch me God, and let me know you are here." Whereupon,
God reached down and touched the man. But, the man brushed
the butterfly away ...and walked on.

The man cried, "God, I need your help!" And an e-mail arrived
reaching out with good news and encouragement. But, the man
deleted it and continued crying.

I have found this to be a great reminder that God is always
around us in the little and simple things that we take for granted
.... even in our electronic age ...

So don't miss out on a blessing because it isn't packaged the
way that you expect.

Sometimes I Need Him to Knock me Out

I've found myself in tears many many times over the last couple of months. Sometimes it's a stupid fight with my husband. Sometimes it's a fight with one of the girls. Sometimes it's from some other painful or joyful situation. Sometimes it's because He's knocked me over the head enough that I can finally SEE some profound truth.

Sleepless Nights

"O Sleep, O Gentle Sleep, Natures Soft Nurse, How Have I Frightend Thee, That Thou No More Wilt Weigh my Eye-Lids Down And Steep My Senses In Forgetfulness?" William Shakespeare

I'm beginning to wonder what a good nights sleep feels like. Is it that my body trying to prepare me for what it thinks is to come? Yes, I understand that there will be a new baby in the house very soon but MY body does not need to prepare for this as I will NOT be the one getting up in the middle of the night with her. That will be my daughters job. Thankfully I'm just the grandmother this time around.

Tug of War

It was pointed out to me today that I need to stop worrying about some things in my life and just give it to Him. I have to admit that is a daily struggle for me, sometimes a by the minute struggle. I am constantly fighting for control and to be honest that was the hardest thing for me to let go of when I put my life in His hands. I remember crying with my friend Lenora about the control issue before I asked him into my life. It was 2002 and it was so very hard for me to do.

Are You a Runner?

Are you a runner? I'm sure not! That wasn't always the case though. I remember loving to run in elementary school. I specifically remember the exhilaration I felt at winning some little sprint against some boys during a race on field day. I think I must have been in fourth grade then and if I remember correctly I was legs, legs, legs. Long, lanky legs.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade. ~ Tenth Avenue North

This song just really spoke to me today... this VERSE in the song really spoke to me today. It just rang a chord in my heart and I'm not exactly sure why. I don't think it's about me though... or is it? 

I've made mistakes and I know that I am more. I know that I've been remade. I rest secure in my love for my God and his love for me. 

But...... I tend to forget that when thinking about other people. I think this song for me today was more than talking about me, it is a reminder to me that EVERYONE is more than the choices they make, more than their past mistakes, and more than the problems that they create. This is a song of forgiveness and of rebirth and although I didn't think I was holding on to any un-forgiveness, maybe I was.

And I know feel very overwhelmed and so much LIGHTER than I did a few moments ago. Does that even make sense to you?

Oh what a Blessing!

Tim and I decided to take a drive out to Chena Hot Springs on Saturday to enjoy them before we leave Alaska (still don't know where we are going or IF we are going anywhere). We hadn't been out there yet and figured this would be a perfect weekend for the drive since we are test driving a friends truck to see if we want to purchase it.

Vacation Time!

Recently our family took a vacation. It's the first vacation we've taken in over three years and everyone was thrilled about it. When we planned the vacation the hubs was supposed to be deploying with his unit. Then he develops some health problems and gets a non-deployable status. We had already purchased the non-refundable airline tickets so we decided to go ahead and take the vacation as planned.

Thankfully we got a large enough tax refund to be able to afford tickets for the five of us as well as all the extra stuff (car rental, food, hotel....) to have a fab vacation!

We spent some very calming time at his parents house. We were able to see his brother (it's been about 6 years) and meet his new wife and see the kids. We went to a Renaissance fair which was a lot of fun :) and just had a really good time with his family.

We also went to Georgia to see my family. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to see my extended family because Tasha had a little problem that they said was caused by all the traveling so we had to take it easy for a little while. Things are never dull when we're with my family and this was no exception :) My twin nephews have gotten sooo big and it was sooo good to see them again. Breanna and the boys played so well together! I was a little scared going in that they would fight but nope... it's like they were never apart!

THEN... my clan and my sisters clan and my parents went to Florida for the really fun part of the vacation lol. Can you guess where we went? :)

Yep! To DISNEY! We were very fortunate to be able to take advantage of Disney's Armed Forces Salute and are VERY thankful they honor the military with such a fab deal. Six tickets for $138 for four days at any of the Disney World parks with park hopper option. We were planning on doing all four parks but decided that Magic Kingdom needed two days so we opted not to go to Hollywood Studios. Of course when you get a family as large and outspoken as ours together and try to do a big family activity there are bound to be attitudes but I think that overall we all had a really great time together. We were so very BLESSED to be able to spend that time together and I am so very happy that my family could share the time together.

I'm sure there will be many more posts about the great adventure we just had because there are soooo many things to share but this is a nice overview :)

The Waiting Game

Our life has become all about waiting. ::sigh:: I know, I know, I should just be happy that as of this second my husband is not deploying with his unit but I'm just not.

First of all he extended (with my blessing) specifically to deploy with his unit. Then he starts having health problems that land him on the non-deployable list. OK, so what is going to happen to us now?

Holding My Tongue

This only happens every once in a while now that I'm older, wiser, and better able to hold my tongue but I swear I'm having a VERY hard time today not going off on a couple of Officer/Senior NCO's in our Brigade. GRRR....

There are quite a few people that I want to get right in their face like a Drill SGT would and yell at them to do their own f'ing job! Oh and then there are the people that REALLY need to learn how to do their jobs before you send a soldier round and round just to end up back at the same spot. Someone want to tell me why my husband knows a MSG's (Master Sergeant) job better than the MSG knows his job???

Yeah, it's a good thing that we don't really celebrate Valentines Day around our house cause I'd be sorely disappointed if we did cause he's in NO mood to be doing anything lovey...

So now I have a dilemma :( I am supposed to go do a Bible study with my friends tonight. I was planning on taking one kid (the littlest) and letting the hubs and other kids fend for themselves for dinner. Well now I'm feeling conflicted. Should I still do that or should I stay home and tend to my husband and maybe help ease his evening a little. If you know my husband you'd know that he likes his computer time so he would be happy with that but he will NOT be happy with the other two children in his ear asking whats for dinner... blah blah blah. I could take the middle girl with us but that would get in the way of our Bible study. Hmmm... decisions, decisions.

Frugal Decorating

We have this LONG wall in the living room that has been devoid of any decoration for far too long. I decided that since we were having people over for Breanna's party it was the perfect time to get some stuff up on it BUT I wanted to do it frugally. So... I got creative ;), no small feat for me. lol

I ordered some unstretched canvases a couple of months ago with the intention of doing the stretching myself (cause it would be cheaper) and I just haven't had much opportunity to look for the supplies. I went to Michael's this past week and they didn't have it there so I decided to just frame them. So, I went to JoAnn's to get some frames cause they had some on sale. I ended up just getting cheap ones but they look ok... :)

These were taken by me on a hike last summer.

Here's where my creativity comes in. I needed something above the TV, some artwork or something! Most of my living room is decorated with photos and that's fine because I LOVE my family photos but, I wanted something different. When I was at JoAnn's they had frames marked down. Just the actual frame part, no backing and no glass. It was only $8 and it is very close to the width of my 46" TV. I found some fabric that I liked and Tim and I stapled the fabric to the back of the frame. Here's the finished product. I'm very happy with it :)

The frame was $8 and the fabric was a little over $5

Then we took a frame that I purchased around Christmas that we hadn't used yet and put some pictures in and hung it up (no photos of that one). But it's one of those collage frames. :)

Also, I spray painted some of those storage cubes that have just the two cubes. I picked them up at a garage sale last summer for around $3. They are now black and serve as our end tables. :)

I LOVE the finished look of it all. It just works for me :)

Childhood Mistakes

I want to write, for two days now I've really wanted to come here and write but every time I do, the words don't come or they come but they reveal too much. This won't make much sense to most but there are things happening in my family right now that have created conflicting emotions within me and I just don't know which way up and which way is down.

As a parent I want nothing more than to help my daughter who is having such a hard time right now. I really want to help her learn the right way and help her to choose the right path in life. I see her going down a very hard road and I just want to help her stop and change course.

I have very conflicting emotions though. While I want to help her it's also so very hard because my emotions are all over the place with this situation that she has created our lives. I have a sense of betrayal, betrayal like I've never felt before. I feel violated. I know first hand how difficult it is to get over a betrayal of this magnitude and I know that it is beyond my ability but I am having such a hard time turning it over to Him.

Honestly I catch myself crying at odd times and have to leave the room. I can't concentrate. I'm in a bad place and I know it. I need to pull myself out of this place because I know where it leads and I don't want to do that to myself or my family.

What will I do? I will do what a good parent does and I will put my feelings aside and concentrate on my daughter. I will do whatever is necessary to help her get over these issues she is having. I'm just not sure right now what needs to happen to help her in the best way. I'll be calling our Pastor soon but other than that I'm just grasping at straws here.

Last night was a really wonderful night in our home. I don't know if it's because we are keenly aware of what is coming up or just that we happened to all be in  a really good mood but I am happy! lol

The older girls got it started by singing some old songs (think CCR) and then Tim put on some music which got Breanna dancing which then got the other girls dancing. I was too busy laughing for most of it to even think about capturing it on film but towards the end I did get some great photos! Breanna and Tim ended the dance party out with a slow jam and a slow dance to match.

Look at that smile!!!

What a special moment in her life. I'm so thankful that we were able to spend that time together as our day is quickly approaching. The kids ended the night with all of them (minus Breanna) playing video games. A fun time was had by all!

Then today Breanna took her first Communion at church. Many will think this is bad because she is only a five year old and can't possibly understand what it means. However, my daughter LOVES God with all her heart! She loves Him more than anyone else and she talks of pleasing him all the time. She knows His love for her. We took it as a perfect time for Daddy to explain what it means which really gave us the opportunity to talk to her about Jesus dying for our sins. Of course in terms a five year old can understand. I think it went well and I of course, was in tears! Planting those seeds EVERYDAY!!!

In my small portion of the world we had some men and women leave their families this past week. Many left for training that really begins the deployment process for the families and then others left for their actual deployments. There is a lot of sadness around here right now and I hope that you will keep us all in your prayers, not only the soldier serving in a far off country but also the families left behind.

Crisis of Teens

Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Feel free to have a look around and follow me if you like what you see. 

What to write today? My life has been absorbed dealing with teenage drama/trauma/disobedience. Thirteen... that's a rough time. Not a child but  no where close to grown up yet you live in a society that pushes adulthood on your innocent not ready for it brain and body. We've had to take a hard line with this one. All trust has been lost and as a result all privileges have been striped away. This one is going to have to learn the hard way that you have to have a set of values and integrity if you are to make it in this world. She is still so innocent and I refuse to allow that innocence to be stripped away from her because of the values of the world!

Hardest Money I Ever Spent

It costs an arm and a leg to travel from Alaska and while I've never had a hard time spending money before, this $3500 was the most difficult purchase ever! It wasn't the money or the act of spending it, it was the thought of spending it on a single purchase. A purchase of TRAVEL and the fact that Alaska is one of the most expensive states to travel to/from. A plane ride to Seattle costs just a couple hundred less than a plane ride all the way across the country.

Oh and of course you can't forget the what-ifs that entered into my mind that made it difficult to push the purchase button. What if things change and our leave gets revoked for some reason, this is the Army we're talking about here. They can change whatever they want, whenever they want to.  We'll be out that money! That's VERY scary for me. We don't just have that money lying around and this is a much needed vacation. Tim and Tasha haven't been home in almost three years and the rest of us haven't been home in over 18 months.

We NEED this vacation and if something happens to make it not happen, I might just lose my mind for good! I hope you will keep us in  your prayers for the next couple of months at least :)

Happy 16th Anniversary to Me!!!

I am truly blessed to be married to the perfect man for me! I give him a hard time most every day of the week but he is my one and only love on this earth! I was sitting and admiring him the other day from afar and couldn't help but think of my luck. How many women can say that after 16 years of marriage, a couple of children later, and 100 extra pounds that their husbands still find them just as desirable as the day they married? Tim is so affirming to me! Even though I am carrying quite a bit of extra weight he has never once made me feel self conscious about it and to me that is HUGE!

Is my husband perfect? NOOOO and I'm so glad he's not :) He doesn't expect perfection out of me either. He doesn't complain when he comes home and the house is messy. He has never expected me to have dinner ready at a certain time. He may have his shortfalls but he is PERFECT for ME!

Sometimes it's very difficult to see how God gave me the perfect man... when he's spent hours on the computer, or when he makes me repeat myself a thousand times and still can't remember what I told him, or when he just flat out tunes me out (just to give a few examples, lol) it gets mighty hard to remember that we are perfect for each other. Then he does something wonderful and all is right with the world again and God shows me that He gave me Tim as a wonderful compliment to my personality. I just hope that I am just as wonderful a compliment to him!

Happy 16th Anniversary Tim!!! I love you more today than I ever dreamed was possible when we first got married.

One of the happiest days of my life.

I can't believe it! Five years ago today I was admitted to the hospital for "observation". Breanna seemed to be having some issues and they wanted to monitor her and be ready to take her if needed. I can't even describe the flood of emotions that rushed through me when my doctor told me to head over to the hospital, they were expecting me. She was early, by five weeks, and I KNEW this was going to be it. I could barely contain my tears as we left the office. It felt as if I had let her down.

Before the nurse could even start the IV they came in and said they were moving me to a L&D suite cause this was it. They were going to induce. The doctor had a chance to actually look at the latest ultrasound (she sent me over for observation based on the ultrasound tech's suggestion). Seems Breanna was doing a little worse off than she originally thought. I get in the L&D suite and I'm given the gel that's supposed to start the process, given my IV, and hooked up to a monitor.

It was the season premiere of Survivor and I was ticked cause I was having to watch it from a hospital bed. My doctor was monitoring my condition on her computer at home while watching survivor :(.... Then the nurse comes back in and says she called and they need to get my signatures and get me prepped for surgery. Breanna's heart rate kept dropping with every little contraction and she needed to come out now.

So, I didn't even get to watch Survivor. My doctor was/is/and always will be WONDERFUL! I LOVE HER with all my heart and she will forever remain my favorite. I also love our ultrasound tech. She saw me and my family many, many times over the course of my pregnancy because it was complicated. I love our nurse, she was wonderful as well! The whole staff was actually really great!!! I NEVER once had a complaint with any of them!!! So, if you are ever in the Savannah area and you are in need of a OB/GYN you simply must go to OB/GYN Associates of Savannah, Elizabeth McIntosh. I'm really NOT kidding! I love them so much that I am going to see if they have any appointments available when we go home for our visit to do a gender determination ultrasound on Tasha.

Ok, back to the story. Dr. McIntosh held my hands while they did the spinal block on me and then got me situated and started the surgery. She and her assistant talked about Survivor while they did the surgery :), much to my chagrin... I was not too happy that she got to see it and I did not. lol

Everything went well. Breanna was taken to the NICU where she spent the next three weeks. She was healthy but she had a hard time eating at first. It took her awhile to eat as much as they wanted her to and to gain the weight she needed. She had a feeding tube through her nose for the first two weeks. They hospital was wonderful (except for one nurse) and although they had to boost my breast milk with a little extra calories they always used my expressed milk for her feedings.

It turns out that we were very close to losing her that day and I thank God for giving Dr. McIntosh the ability, foresight, whatever you want to call it, cause her actions saved my little girl!

Oh and it should also be noted that I missed a concert as well! My mom got me tickets to see Gretchen Wilson and well, you can't really go to a concert just a day after you deliver a baby by C-section. Tasha got to go with my mom in my place :). 

Happy Birthday Breanna! You are and forever will be my little princess, no matter what you make me miss!

It Finally Dropped!

I have one of those fancy body composition scales and I have a tendency to hop on that thing every morning. The last week has been different though. It has been about four days since I last stepped on it so this morning my curiosity got the better of me. I got undressed and stepped on. My weight hadn't changed but my body fat had!

I have had such a hard time getting it to go below a certain number... Oh what the heck, you might as well know. According to my scale I'm over 50% fat... Not any more! Woo hoo! I dropped to 49.6%! This is huge for me and I'm soooo excited. See I don't have a weight goal. I want to be fit and since muscle weighs more than fat its highly possible that I could be heavier than I think I should be. So my goal is a body fat percentage alone.

A step closer to my goal! Praise God!!

Food, Inc.

I gotta tell you that I watched this movie, Food, Inc., because a good friend said something about it and I am just disgusted with our government!!!! HELLO.... FDA & USDA.... You are there to protect the people, not the stupid food industry. My feathers are ruffled and you all know that means I have to take action :). Not sure how I can best be of benefit but I will do something. I have a mouth and I will use it!

All I'm gonna say right now is that if you haven't seen this movie you simply must watch it! If you have Netflix then you can actually watch it by streaming it on your computer or other Netflix enabled device such as the Wii.

I knew some of this stuff already just from the research I did last year for a speech I gave on obesity but this is just HUGE!

FINALLY got the husband on board!! YAY.... We make changes starting today with our trip to the grocery store. Should be interesting since I know NOTHING about organic.

That flew right out the window

Day two of the Love Dare is to show kindness..... Uh huh... Well it was all going well almost all day long until about midnight. GRRRR

Patience in Marriage

Better to live on a corner of the roof
than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
~ Proverbs 25:24

Wow! I bet this is how Tim feels :) So today is day one of The Love Dare and it deals with patience. That's a HARD one for me cause I am not a patient person. Tim actually pointed out to me the other day that I am much harder on my family and I expect a lot more of them than I do other people. Don't we all? I didn't realize this was wrong but I guess my way of getting them to meet those expectations probably aren't the best. I am harder on them and Tim especially!

I Finished my Journey!!

On July 5, 2010 I joined in with a group of women who wanted to complete the Bible in 90  Days challenge. Today I finished! What was supossed to take 90 days took me 209 days to complete but I am soooo happy that I did it, no matter how long it took.

This is the first time I've EVER read the Bible the whole way through. I know it's only through His help that I did it. I have a great overview of the Bible now, have some great new verses to fall back on, and have such a closer relationship with Him now.

What's next? Hmmm... I'm not sure. Now that everything fits together I need to dig into the Word and I've got my eye on a book that I hope will really teach me how to do just that. Any of you have any experiences with Kay Arthur, Lord, Teach Me to Study the Bible in 28 Days or How to Study Your Bible: The Lasting Rewards of the Inductive Method?

Let me know what you think!

The Little Witch

I don't know about your home but in mine things are going a little crazy right now. My oldest is unmarried, jobless, and pregnant. My middle girl is having her own issues as she learns to navigate the world of teendom, and my little one (not quite five mind you) has decided that she is no longer going to be my little princess, she's now my little witch. The last was screamed at me from her time out spot as she is acting like a fool pulling at her princess dress.

Blizzard Blog Hop

Welcome fellow bloggers! I'm so glad you could stop by. Thankfully although we do have snow on the ground, it's nothing new and we're NOT snowed in :). Being in the interior portion of Alaska we have snow on the ground from October to April normally.

My name is Brandi. I'm a 35 year old Army wife. I have three daughters, ages 18, 13, and my littlest is about to torn five! We've been in Alaska for the almost three years now and while I would love to say that our stint up here is almost done, it probably isn't. We very likely have about a year and a half left. Booo! I get wanderlust very bad and want to move after only a couple of years. Even in our civilian lives we moved a lot. In 10 years we lived in three different states, two of them two different times. So we moved a total of five times in 10 years.

Besides being an Army wife and a mother to three wonderful children I wear many other hats. I am a Christian who is trying very hard to be obedient to my Lord. I am a full time college student and an FRG Leader. I will soon as the title of Grandmother to my repertoire as well. My oldest daughter is due in August and with any luck I'll actually get to be in the delivery room for her childs arrival. That is up to the Army though!

Well, I guess that's as good a introduction as any! Feel free to browse the blog, get to know me. I'm like just about anyone else and suffer from the same struggles as most. I use my blog as a way to share with others just what I'm going through. I hope that it touches your heart in some way.

A New Perspective

Back in May of 2010 I was reading the book Captivating. I have to admit that I actually still have a couple of chapters to go but while I was reading it I came to some conclusions that I shared in a note on my Facebook page. Today I came across it while looking to see if I had shared something else in a note and I want to share part of it here with you.

The New Normal

Welcome! If  you're here from the Military Monday's Blog Hop I'm glad you could stop by. This is actually my first time ever participating in a blog hop so bear with me :)

Being that it IS Military Monday and all.... I thought a military themed post would be pretty appropriate.

What a Reality Check!

Does MY life revolve around food? That's a loaded question but it's the first thing that popped into my head when I read tonight in Made to Crave that Lysa's life was arranged too much around food. I had to take a step back and really look at what my life is like in order to answer that question.

Are you Spiritually Malnourished?

Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food 

I recently started a new Bible study based on the book "Made to Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst. I mentioned this book a few posts back. I was very excited to start the study today! You can go to Melissa Taylor's blog to read more about the study or to jump in. Since it just started today you should have no problems getting up and running. Just buy the book through Amazon in Kindle format (you don't have to have a kindle! you can just get the kindle app for your computer or smartphone).

Marriage and Grief

I learned many many years ago that mourning and grief do not always come from the death of a loved one. We can grieve just about any thing. In my own life that has mostly been my marriage. As Tim and I approach 16 years of wedded bliss... is there such a thing... I can tell you that my marriage looks nothing like I thought it was going to look when we got married. In some ways it is sooo much more and in others it is sooo much less. My expectations have changed over the years but they did not change easily nor without pain, mourning, and LONG periods of grieving.

Guided Decisions

God is so GOOD! 

I've been wanting this book, Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst and today I had the opportunity to buy it but hesitated because there are many other books I also want and truthfully I'm still working on finishing my Bible in 90 days (that was supposed to be finished back at the beginning of October) and I'm reading a couple of other books right now as well.

I received my latest Amazon gift card from SwagBucks today and that brought my account balance to over $10. After some debate with myself I ultimately decided to go ahead and purchase it in the Kindle edition (I don't have a Kindle but I have the app on my phone) so I can read it where ever I might be.  I posted the link to it on Facebook cause I'm just a sharing kind of person, ha ha. Not more than an hour later the author (whom I like on Facebook) posted a link to an online Bible Study for this book!

You see it don't you, why I'm so excited?

Because I was having doubts about purchasing the book right now and ultimately went ahead and followed my heart by purchasing it. I just feel the posting of the online Bible study after I purchased it was confirmation from God that I did the right thing.

I know, I didn't do a very good job putting this into words. I'm just so very excited about the book, about the study, and even more so about feeling God's hand in my decision today.

I purchased this book for my sister for Christmas because I just felt so strongly about it helping her and helping me and I really hope we can read it together. I have no idea if she has started reading hers yet but if not I hope she will soon. Now if I can just get her to do the study as well :)

The Bible study only lasts for six weeks so it really is something most people can commit to. I hope you will check it out.
