A Softball Players Prayer


The Softball Player's Prayer

God Grant me wisdom,
to tell a stike from a ball,
to know where to throw,
and never to fall. Keep me always in the baseline,
running straight and true,
and I'll look for your sign
and stretch one into two. God give me vision to
see every pitch,
so if a player needs help,
I will see which. Let me always hustle,
so I'll be at my best,
and take pride in myself
in sports and the rest. God be my strength
when I thorw the ball
when I'm far from home plate,
or against a wall. So I never miss a base,
please guide my feet,
bring me home safely
So my job is complete. When I help a younger player,
help me always give praise,
so they will see you in me,
in all of my ways. God please guide our coach,
to be fair and smart,
to teach us to be good,
let it come from his heart. Let me take a loss,
just as well as a win.
to do any less is surely a sin. As long as I can play,
let me make my parents proud,
as proud as I am,
when they yell my name out loud. However, when my games end,
let me have fun
and if heaven has All-Stars,
I want to be one. When my games here are over
and my seasons are done,
let me play on your team,
just like your son.

Amen

7 months




 My little Luci Goose...you are 7 months old already!  I can't believe that soon I will be planning your first birthday!  It makes me a little sad, but excited too.  Taking your photos this month was not an easy task.  In fact, it took all of us just to get a few photos.  You were not going to be still long enough to let Mommy take your picture!

I have to say that you are spoiled rotten! And I'm to blame.  I've pretty much held you most of your life. :)  Now that you are mobile you will push to get down and play, but not for long.  I always rock you to sleep and often times I just hold you while you sleep.  I love those moments.  Savoring every sweet moment of your life is so important to me.

Soon I'll be returning to work, and the thought of it literally makes me sick.  I'll miss so much during the day, so expect lots of snuggles when I get home.

Well sweet girl, here is what you are up to these days!
  • You are crawling all over the place!  You don't like your knees to touch the hard floor so often times you are on your feet and hands. 
  • You are also pulling up on everything, which means everything has to be moved to a higher location or you will have it in your possession. 
  • You weighed 17.6 pounds at your last Dr. visit, and you were 27 inches. 
  • Your favorite foods are still the baby foods that me and your Daddy make.  Avocados, potatoes, beans...those are your favorites.  You don't care for fruit, just like your Momma.
  • Your personality is the greatest.  Everyone loves you and you have a way of making everyone smile and happy.
  • You love your brother and sisters, and your face lights up when you see them.  They have a way with you like no other, and the giggles that come out of when you play are priceless. 
  • You are still waking up around 3,4, or 5 in the morning to be fed.  You don't stay up or eat much and you are back to sleep.
  • You have two bottom teeth now also. 
  • I've also started feeding you some finger foods.  You are so smart and will often feed yourself right off your highchair tray.
  • Your doctor expects you to be walking in a couple of months, and says that you are about 3 months ahead developmentally. 
Its hard to believe 7 months have already gone by!  We love you so much sweet girl, and the joy you bring to this family is just amazing!

Back to school with a purpose


Sending my kids back to school with a purpose just got so much easier!  DaySpring sent me some amazing products to review for free and I absolutely love them!

Breanna is going into the 8th grade this year.  If you think sending your children to Kindergarten is tough, wait until you send them to 8th grade.  The older they get, the more challenges they seem to face.  The pressure's placed on them from their peer's are so much greater.  Although, I know that I'm not sending her unprepared.  With our Lord Jesus by her side, I have no doubt that she is going to have a great school year!  She is well prepared for whatever this world tries to throw at her!

DaySpring sent us notebooks, folders, and binders all with powerful messages on them.  You can see the pictures  I took of them below.  What I love most about these is that they will be a constant reminder of who she is, and the walk that she is walking, as well as her peers.  DaySpring has many more amazing designs that you can view here.

Also, if you leave a comment, I will randomly pick one person to receive $20.00 towards anything from DaySpring!


Thank you DaySpring for these amazing products! 


These products were all given to me by DaySpring free of charge for my review, and reflect only my opinion. :)
