    So thankful it's the weekend. Yesterday at work was rough.

    I worked with a quadriplegic man, mild retardation but sometimes some issues dealing with reality. Happy to say that he is also a Christian. His reality issues came forth yesterday due to some med changes after a recent hospitalization. Most of it typical boyhood daydream stuff - being a spy...Lex Luthor...the USMC...martians...Ginger Rogers being his mother...calling commissioner Gordon because the Penguin is loose...though he is in his 50's, this is probably all he has. He was very coherent for several moments right after singing along to the radio (another reason I am considering music therapy). During these moments, he was wishing he could be more independent and could get out of his wheelchair and be able to walk. I got a little teary eyed at this. Another delusion was that he was dead. I asked "can you walk right now?" His response, "no." I said, "well, we are going to have glorified bodies when we are with God in heaven. You will be able to walk, run...and even dance." He quieted down and seemed to be more coherent through the rest of the day.

    After returning the van to the office after dropping him off, I ignored my paperwork. I locked myself in the bathroom and sat down on the floor with my back against the wall, praying and trying to collect myself. Monday, I work with a new guy who is HIV+ after being raped in a care home. Sometimes I really hate the world we live in...

    I wonder what it would be like to be quoted. Like in a book, or have my name show up on thinkexist.com or goodquotes. People would post my quote as their FB status, their friends will 'like' it and think how deep their friend is, or buy mugs, keychains with it inscribed on it. Yes, that's when I'll know I've made a difference in the world.

    Yesterday was...long. We planted our vegetable garden, and I put over 300 onion bulbs in the ground. I had dirt in my shoes. My back hurt. I had random bits of dirt and leaves in my hair because the wind wouldn't knock it off. Late in the day, my husband and I left our babies at home with his mom and drove the 30 miles to town by ourselves to go grocery shopping and get my Mother's Day present- more bulbs. But these ones are flowers, and these I will plant knowing that in a few weeks, a month, maybe 2 months, my little corner of the yard will be a quiet, lush, green sanctuary full of bright blooms, a place where I can sit in the grass and soak up the sun and have a few minutes to myself to recharge.

    So- another day of hard work, because there's grass and weeds to be dealt with before I can plant anything, but all the dirt in my shoes and in my hair will be long forgotten when that first flower blooms. Win? YES!

    Every once in a while I used to watch movies most of night and go to sleep around 8 in morning, I always thought that weird, sleeping through a whole day.

    Jesus did some tough things too, I think of everything I do and have done to help others and think that that is good, because it means I don't have to wear the bracelet or the shirt: WWJD

    Make sure you do something nice for mom, maybe make some almond fudge or something . And, always do the dishes and vacuum and clean house up for mom, more than just mom's day, littleChristone, but, certainly on mom's day, that's a given, and, cook her something too, doesn't have to be dinner either, just 'something.' The Lord leads.

    and, to arwenbaggins: I think, therefore, I am, eh.

    to bellegirl: He is always with you



    He IS always with you, I DO know this

    Happy Mother's Day, miladies, God bless you all for your work, your heavy work, as a mom, having raised many, not just YOUR kids either, if you have had them/have them. I know MANY moms, besides my own, have influenced me, in many, many ways. Sooo many

    For those wanting to be mom's, WANTING. He KNOWS, He is with you with these thoughts, He will perfectly lead you to whatever it is He wants you to do, He will, I know this, too ; wait on Him, He is aLWAYS with you, never leaving you nor forsaking you. He is an ever-present help in your times of trouble (Heb. 13:5, Psalms 46:1 )

    It drives me crazy when people boss me around through my children. Like so: "Go tell Mommy you need your diaper changed", "Go ask Mommy if she'll do a load of laundry for me", "Go tell Mommy I need a fresh towel"...

    And of course my son is TWO, so mostly, he does NOT tell Mommy, but obviously I am meant to hear these "requests", and so I just do it. Whatever.

    Although, hey thanks, but I happen to KNOW when to change my kid's diaper.
    And if you need something, HEY, why not try just saying, "Cristen, would you mind throwing some of my clothes in the washer?" Cuz guess what? I'm kinda nice like that, and will totally do it WITHOUT the indirect sort of manipulation.

    I've started exercising 15-20 minutes a day, since I've cut back on so many things now I might as well get in shape and get my weight down. I let myself go for waaayyyy too long. Time to get back into the land of the healthy living. And so far, I feel great. I'm getting less headaches and having more energy.

    My worry is, though, I won't stick to it. I have a BAD, like SUPER BAD habit of starting on something and never finishing. Happens time and time again. It's the part of myself I hate the most. It's not my looks or my weight that win out on things I dislike about myself the most, it's the bad habits and traits I tend to have. But maybe this will help break some of that. If I finish one thing and get to at least one goal in my life, maybe the rest will fall with them.

    My kids are so sweet. How'd I get so lucky? I look at their sweet faces, I know how God must feel when he looks at his children. So full of love watching them grow do good things, do not so good things, trying to guide them in the right direction. Holding their little hands in mine as we walk. I want to protect them and never let go. I don't want the world to poison my children.

    My son so quiet and polite my daughter so head strong and confident in herself. I wouldn't want them any different. I want them to be Tue person GOD wants them to be. I hope someday they hold their own babies in their arms and feel such love, I hope they know that joy of seeing someone the first minute of life outside the womb. You look into their eyes and you see the wonderful creation God has knitted together.

    Some people, maybe even a lot of people, seem satisfied with shallowness. Superficiality. Temporary satisfaction. Being entertained. I don't understand it, but there it is. The question in my mind is how they ever expect to have what is meaningful and lasting. How can personal growth occur under such conditions? A lasting marriage? Fellowship with the Lord? Revelation of the Kingdom of God?

    Fun is great. I love fun. But I also want to be a grownup. I want to grow in God. I want to release my life to Him and allow it to become all that it can be. I want to make a difference. I want to build what lasts.

    These past couple of weeks were very challenging.

    In a previous message I posted, I stated that Denise had went into rehab. Well, she never made it there. I found out and was really frustrated. I made a couple of attempts to call and text her and it became obvious that she was avoiding me.

    I left things alone for a couple of days seeking the Lord. I then texted her and told her... "Most of those that returned to Jesus did so with a great deal of guilt and shame." Within an hour she texted me and returned the next day. That was a week ago.

    Today, she REALLY went into rehab. I went to the facility myself to confirm that she was there. I could tell that everything in her wanted to run away again, but she didn't this time. It will probably be a couple of weeks before she is able to make contact with the outside. I'm not sure where things will go from here but I have a great deal of hope for her and the kids.

    Time to rest up and wait for my next assignment.

    You are Julieannie, just keep goinng, the Lord leads, He is doing perfect work through you . Eph. 2:10

    catstaffer: What great Lord-led work, no, not changing the catbox--that is a labor of love though, and, that's great, those cats LOVE a clean granules --- but, yes, working with folks like you do for work. Awesome. Doing work what Jesus would do. Most rewarding work I've done has been helping others in different ways, I've done a lot of social things, including doc work, but, although I liked it, God said after 6 months of volunteering, back in 1997, that it was not the work for me . I followed Him , although I still look back at those memories--great

    ------------
    Everything went great yesterday, PTL, cooked dinner for mom, sister and her kids and my nephew and nieces 13, 5,3, came over and they are all doing well. Praise God !! God is so good. A month ago my sister and her family were having great problems and God just jumped in to take over, amazing ways God does things as we just let Him lead Sorry, not more specific, not here, but God worked a miracle through my sister and I thank Him for His great care in helping her see that she could still love when she was hurt and for her mate too, that they could get through the problems that were hurting them, deeply. God healed things. God answers prayers !!! My dinner went good too, I had a lot of good help from my sis' kids and we made pizza (nephew made it scrumptious!) , had shrimp, and, I made some salads . Everything went purrr-fect, once again, this mother's day was a little more organized than uze in the cooking department, sometimes I really do just grab recipes out of books and start cooking and everything always goes perfect (I didn't say the food was all always perfect ) , as He leads and helps me prepare everything , often in ways that simply floor me because I don't cook much during the year.

    My older brother refuses to learn to cook. More importantly, he refuses to learn to cook Thai food.

    He visited from Dallas this weekend, being Mother's Day and all. And despite the fact that the weekend is supposed to be about our mom, he, as always, impressed upon our mother to make some Thai home cooking.

    Guess who got to keep the leftovers? Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
