:::YAWN:::

Spring Break is over and I am T I R E D! First I lose an hours sleep and then you give me a week without an alarm clock and my internal clock is ALL messed up:-) I am sure I will sleep well tonight!
Last week was our first official spring break in Oklahoma. I don't think the kids missed much from back home other than swimming. Their Dad drove up Sunday from Florida and spent Monday with the kids. Monday he took them to the zoo, build a bear and Incredible Pizza. I was blessed to spend the day with a dear friend. We did Chili's for lunch and Johnnie's for dinner:-D Yep no cooking for me that day lol I can't remember the last time I went a whole day without cooking....The rest of the week the kids and I did little things like going to the dollar movies, walking around the "Oklahoma Beach" which is just a lake with clay but the kids kept calling it the beach, a nature park, rented movies etc. I also took care of little things that I have been putting off like getting an Oklahoma license...somebody should have warned me that they put your weight ON the front!! It was a nice relaxing break..well, minus Monday with all my stressing out although I couldn't have asked for better company. Now things are back to normal and I am exhausted. Is this a sign I am getting old? I remember the days when I could stay up all night and then work a double shift...now I need a week to recover from my week off.:::yawn::::off to cook dinner.


To all of you that emailed me after reading Scared I really appreciate your love and support. I had a hard time for a few days but I left church yesterday feeling so much better. I realized while I was listening to the sermon that I had let something someone told me take root in my heart and fear set in...the only way I am going to get through the next ten days is to read the scriptures and just trust God...He brought us this far I know He will take care of us. He always has:-)

Thank You, God, for showing Barbie this "root of fear" so she could remove it. Fill her only with Your Truth. Filter out all other *voices* so the ONLY voice she hears is Yours! I love You, Ame

Frankly I am so glad spring break is over!! I had my three sons AND my baby cousin...so I had four boys in my house ages 8, 8, 8, and 6... uh huh.

Hey - stop by my blog and scroll down a little to read a post I wrote called Plan B: Deploy the Joy. I think you'll really like it.

Lord bless!

Hi Barbie.. I am so glad that it blessed you. That's my job from God - to uplift and encourage. Please feel free to stop by anytime. Most of the time I am very silly, but my calling is to write.

Lord bless from Noble, OK

I am thrilled to read that you had a splendid time with your kids. Sometimes spending time away from all the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day stuff is good for the body and the soul. Even when it means that you are having a hard time getting back into the rythm...

Blessings to you and yours...
