I wanted to share with you my daily devotional reading. I love it!

He rescues and saves his people; he performs miraculous signs and wonders in the heavens and on earth. Daniel 6:27

When you look for God, he shows himself in miraculous ways:an awesome sunset, the restoration of a hopeless relationship, the birth of a baby, the transforming work of love and forgiveness. God does the impossible to draw people to him, the specific call of God in your life. God is able and willing to do the impossible in order to do his work. That means no situation is hopeless. If you think you've never seen a miracle, look closer. They are happening all around you.


Day 3: Favorite Television Program
I don't watch a whole lot of TV Programs mostly movies. My Sam LOVES movies! We get a new netflix every week. So here goes my favs.
I love that some of these couples really have happy endings.

I NEVER watched this until I met Sam. I love it now. I love Olivia! There is a new season coming out. CAN'T WAIT!

We like to watch Justified and Two and A Half Men and Royal Pains as well.

I finished my C25K this week. Next week I am moving on to Week 2 and that means Run
90 seconds walk 60 seconds. I'm a little nervous. Say a prayer I don't die out there...HA! I am going to buy a scale. I don't own a scale and I HATE SCALES! :/ We shall see!

Have a Blessed Day!

A Great Deal

Its me again! Emily....
We have had some rain and thunder storms here in South Texas and that's pretty major for us.

So Sam and I will be traveling to Houston this weekend for my cousins wedding. And of course I freaked out because I didn't "have anything to wear." We all know that I probably could have found something but what is the fun in that? :) I was on the hunt last night at the mall. I NEVER go to the mall. I started off in Dillards, you would think good ole faithful Dillards would have had something...well ya they didn't. My poor husband I dragged him around the whole entire mall. We then hit about 3 different stores and nothing. Then I went to Macy's and they had all kinds of great stuff and everything was 40- 70% off! I bought a top and dress for $42.00. Dress was $27.00 top was $12.00!Here I am modeling the dress in the Macy's fitting room. Horrible pic! Sorry.

Going to get a pedicure! See you all later!

God is doing great things....

I am sure you are guessing and wondering where I have been in the last 6 months? I was kidnapped. Just kidding. I have been so busy and my life has been outta control. But, I have been SOO blessed.

Back in April we had our Beth Moore, So Long, Insecurity Simulcast and we had a BLAST! It was a great success!! We had over 200 ladies come and be apart. Woman came from all over the coastal bend area....Corpus Christi, Ingleside, Portland, Sinton, Aransas Pass. Woman's lives were changed! The Lord had his hand on EVERY aspect of this event.

The Lord told me that he was going make me into the christian woman he wanted. I learned so much after being in charge of this event. He definitely matured me in a number of ways! AWESOME TIME!

I don't have any picture of this event on my lap top. I will get them soon though and of course share them with you all!

Sam and I have been so blessed! Of course we have had to fight the enemy daily. We are now the Youth Leaders in our church. We have a team called The Unit. They ROCK! Our youth groups name is Power House....House of Praise, House of Prayer, House of Power. We are having our first event Friday night, June 25th called jclub (jesus club). It is just going to be a fun filled night with videos, music, games, food, skits. Would you all be willing to praying for us and this event?Pray that the Lord would use us to change these kids lives! Teach them disciple them......these kids are like the UNTOUCHABLE generation but, with Gods love and power and kindness we can through him touch their lives! These kids NEED Christ in their lives. That is one thing that my husband Sam is wanting to do with these kids is bring the WORD to them. We are going to do things alittle different. We have to meet them on their level. Your prayers would be so awesome!!!

These kids need to know that they can "Come as they are...." let the Lord change them from the inside out with his kindness and love. His kindness with bring them to repentance. Our pastor said this, this morning...."We need to stop looking at people with our eyes and look at people with our hearts." Chew on that.... :)

It has definitely been a roller-coaster these last few months. Life has happened. I am going to try and be better at this than what I have been lately.

Sam and I are going on vacation in August! Colorado here we come!!!! :)

You all are the best! May the Lord bless you and keep you all!

Ephesians 3:17-19

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

I wanted to share this song with you all. I love it! Gives me peace. Enjoy!

Double D Ranch

So, I stole a few pictures of my moms little cottage on their ranch. It is a one room cottage. VERY CUTE! My mom is the queen of decorating in my family. She is very talented and she is the one that taught me the lil I know.

This a a cute picture frame my mom has up on the window seal above the sink. And with a old family photo of us. :)

The DD ranch brand shower curtain.

Her fabulous pillows on her bed. Cowgirls and Lace style. My FAVORITE!

Their awesome cedar bed. Isn't it goregous! :)

Since the house is small and is a one room, there are no closets. Mom and dad bought this as a closet. She found greenary around the ranch and used it as decor.

This is one of my favorite pieces of furniture my mom has....

The little sitting living area. My mom and dad went and drove around the ranch and looked for a cute little cedar tree to use as a christmas tree. Sorry its kinda dark, it was really bright out.

I love those Christmas trees. She found them at Hobby Lobby.

I love these deer. They are old but definately goodies! :)

My mom had this china cabinet custom bult. I LOVE IT!

Okay, this is cool. Those trays are some my mom has collected over the years.

A cute little bird plug in.

Bird house right outside the window.

I hope you guys enjoyed!

I just wanted to share alittle scripture with you guys. This is what the Lord shared with me today.
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Holidays 2009

WOW! What a month December was! Things have been so crazy around my house. Sam and I are finally back to our normal routine. The Lord really had to slap me in the face and show me his ways these last couple of months. OH What a mighty God we serve. His plans for us are greater than we know. The Lord showed me this verse during the Christmas season. I am holding on to it tight!

John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." - What a reason to celebrate the Lords Birthday for coming and giving Peace on Earth!

These pictures below are all kinda mixed up but I wanted to share them with you guys. Sorry they are so mixed up. Some of these are from Thanksgiving and Christmas. I hope you enjoy!

Mom and Dad with my nephew Everett

Here is my Christmas tree. I had so much fun decorating this year.
