Street Legal

Y'all, I'm struggling. Hunter is now legal to drive on the open road and it's terrifying. I have always felt like a momma to him and he grew up calling me "little momma". I have no idea how he went from a tiny little baby to this man that's taller than me! I don't like it.  

He's always been my buddy and I am so proud of him. He is such a grounded person and he loves The Lord with all of his heart. He is so smart and funny. I love spending time with him. 

He has been driving race cars and going way-too-super-fast for years. But that only adds fear to the equation! I won't even ride with him. I'm awful. 

But, he passed his drivers test today and he'll start driving to school Monday morning (which is 45 mins away). I will be awaiting a call or text saying he made it safely.. Or else. Big (overprotective) sisters world wide must be acting the same way! I know I'm not the only crazy. Orrr...?

All jokes aside, I know God has His hand on Hunter. He always has. Although it's hard to see him grow up and drive on his own, I will continue to trust The Lord and pray for his safety daily.

Prayer Time {week 4}

I am still in aw of the names coming in for this prayer list. I told someone I thought I'd take a Prayer Time break after this week (in fear of driving everyone crazy) but after receiving more names than ever, I think I've changed my mind. 

But can I just tell you-- God is blessing these people in a huge way! Praise reports of no cancer, no surgery, judges making the right decision for a foster baby.. The list continues and this is only from last week! I'm thankful!

So, this week's list is extra large and needs extra prayers. Please join me! 

With all of these names it was hard to make it very pretty. But who cares if it's pretty? Screen shot a picture of the list NOW and set a reminder. Please, please, please. 

Now to happy mail winners! :-) I randomly chose April Hawkins. Then Tanner begged to draw another name and I let him. He (also randomly) chose my mommy! Melinda Baize! I need your address, April... And mom, I'll send yours to your mailbox that I know you NEVER check.

Prayer Time {Week 3}

Afternoon, Friends!

Prayer time is so important. I am so thankful to know so many of you are joining me in prayer for the needs on the Prayer Time List. It has been so much fun and SO rewarding. None of this is for my benefit, guys. I really hope you understand that and see how sincere I am. This is all for the glory of The Lord! It truly is a blessing. 

I don't know about you but I love lists. I like to write (cute and decorated) lists and check my tasks off one by one. Use this Prayer Time List in the same way. Screen shot it or refer back to my blog during your prayer time to remember these needs. I'm tellin' ya-- YOU WILL BE BLESSED. God appreciates your efforts and He loves that you care about people you most likely don't even know! Prayer changes things. It changes lives. Be a part of someone's life being changed. Doesn't that sound exciting?!

God can touch these people and change the outcome of their situation. Be it cancer, court hearings, surgeries, death, sickness, bad relationships.. He's got this! Trust Him as you join me in prayer. 

Happy Mail winner this week is Ms Gail Vincent! Gail I am thankful for the opportunity to pray for you. Thank you for participating. Please email me {} your address.

Prayer Time {Week 2}

Prayer Time {Week 2} only means one thing.. Prayer Time {Week 1} was a success! 

There were several needs given to me on Facebook and Instagram and I complied a list and posted it right here on my blog. So many people joined in and started praying for last week's Prayer Time List and of course, God heard AND ANSWERED many needs! I am so thankful and blessed for this opportunity to host such a life changing series. 

I have made a commitment to pray for the list every morning and every afternoon on my way to and from work. Can you make the same commitment? Can you sacrifice "your time" for someone else's needs? God will bless you for it! You may not know these people and you may not know these needs, but God does. Join me in prayer for these precious people. 

This week we are praying for two sweet mommies having babies any time now and two sweet families grieving a loss of a loved one. Be it during the birth of a precious baby or after a death of someone close to us, we need God's hand. God can be whatever it is that you need. Contact me via Facebook, Instagram or by email. I will add your need to next week's list and we can watch God move in your life.  

I sent out several pieces of  encouraging Happy Mail last week to those who added names to the list. This week (and every week here on out) is no different! This week, LaDonna Watkins is the Happy Mail recipient! LaDonna, thank you for adding your sweet family to the Prayer Time List. I am honored to pray for you and the sweet kiddos. Please email me your address and I will send you over something that I hope will make you smile.

Max is Two!

Today has always been a special day for my family. Mom and I would make a 3-layer Hershey Cake and fix a big lunch for the family as we celebrated Jordan's birthday. My sis-in-law's birthday is also in August and I fixed both of their birthday cakes for a few years. Things have changed a bit since we have gotten older, but the biggest change about August 3rd? Max. My first and only nephew decided to come on his daddy's birthday! How special!

Yesterday we celebrated with friends and family as our sweet boy turned two. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse style!
He is kind of covering it up a bit- but this boy is potty trained!
Aren't these the most adorable character cupcakes ever? We'll see the real deal in September. 
I painted these letters for my buddy. 
E + Max
We love you so BIG Max!
He chose a Donald cupcake. :)

Such a fun, adorable party! 

Same birthday boy, just 365 days a part. It's only every now and then I see the baby that he once was. After his party, I got him some chocolate milk and he kicked back in my arms. It melted my heart. As we sat there together, I almost cried thinking how much has changed in a years time. I highly doubt he'll want E to hold him and rock after his third birthday party next year. And that's ok! It makes me proud to watch him grow and learn. His mommy and daddy have done a wonderful job with him.

Max has a huge piece of my heart and that will never change! 2 or 27 (his daddy's age today). 

Happy birthday to a couple of my faves! We love you!
