Just a cowgirl....

When my sister and I were kids, we got asked a lot by other kids 'what are you?'...translation: what race are you? People would ask us if we were Mexican, African-American, Hawaiian, all that stuff. (BTW, our mom was full Cuban) But it took me by surprise when KJ and I were at the park the other day and I overheard the girl she was playing with ask, Are you Indian? KJ quickly responded without thinking, Nope...I'm just a cowgirl. Haha, that's my girl. She keeps me laughing on days when I feel like crying!:)

Loved this post!....there are SO many things I want to do but don't feel I have the time, energy,money, experience, etc....I'd love to:

-sky dive
-do missions in other countries with my daughter
-adopt a child from Africa
-work with people that are helping children in the slave industry
-get my masters in counseling
-get out of debt so I can give, give, and then give some more!
-learn to sew
....and so much more! Whatever God has in store, I want to be ready for it, not be afraid to embark on it, and trust Him that He is going to take care of the time, money, experience, etc. part of it all...I think I'm ready.

See His Love

"This is Jesus, in His GLORY.....King of Heaven. Dying for ME!
It is finished! He has done it. Death is beaten, Heaven beckons me!!!.....Such a love..such a love is this for ME!"

Been listenin to this song on the way to work lately...seems like a simple worship song but God really pierced my heart about listening to the words and soaking them in. The KING of Heaven, the God of everything, loves me, and suffered for me. If I can grasp that every day, the choices I make, my attitude, my thoughts...it would all be different. I desire to never get over the cross and what Jesus did for me and I want to spend my life serving Him, every minute of every day. I want to share some of that love...that love that He has for me.

we can ALL do something

I don't normally post twice in one day but I read this one earlier and it just really spoke to me. This is my heart, my passion, my dream...to one day be a voice to children here and around the world that are in need: in need of water, food, love, healthcare, whatever it is...I believe that one day God will use me to advocate for those that have no voice. So I read this post and was really touched.

Love this post by Ron....it really encouraged me as a parent as I think about all the mistakes I made in the past and as a parent. God is continually working in my life and I am excited about where He is taking me and how He is changing my heart. It gives me hope for me and Kylie to be a Godly family and to serve God and others like I've always wanted to.....He is so good to me!!....and thanks Ron for that post!!
