Amanda, what a great day!
Ayla, Happy Birthday to your lil guy!!!
Oy... Im so sick right now, dh actually called into work sick today to watch the girls... My asthma has been so bad he almost took me to the er last night... but praise God I stayed home, and got into the md first thing this morning on some new asthma meds...
Of course tonight im organizing an outreach event at church (moms night out/gift wrapping with devotion type thing) so being able to breath would be awesome... Last time I organized something, I missed it because Kaelyn ended up in the hospital...
BTW........I am a fan of John MacAuthor (Grace to you in CA)..Like a lot of what he says. Anyhow his topic right now is Marriage, Divorce and Singleness..I know this topic seems to come up a lot in our room. He'll probably do multiple parts but here's the first one for anyone interested!

Guys I am sooooo frustrated right now! I just don't know what to do anymore. Sadly enough there are more bad days than good days in my marriage anymore and I just don't know what to do. I can't even list all my problems in here because I am just overwhelmed right now! I didn't post this with it's own title or in ranting because I wanted to keep this between my Christian sister and am hoping for some guidance. It seems like my friends IRL have these wonderful marriages and husbands while mine is just a mess! I love my girls and would never want to hurt them by taking their dad away from them but it doesn't seem like he pays attention to what I am saying AND his friends are such negative influences! He is 41 and I would think he would be more mature when it comes to dealing with a marriage

I do want to tell you that your friends IRL just might not be being honest w/you. One of my favorite anecdotes that Joyce Meyer shares on her program is years ago her and her dh would be arguing on the way to church and when they got there people would say "And how are the Myerses?" To which both her and her dh would reply with a huge smile on their faces, "fine!" And then they would proceed to argue on their way out of church. So while it is unfortunate a lot of people put on masks and act like everything is honkie dorie when it isn't. I also wanted to add that I recommend praying and asking the Holy Spirit where to give you guidance into areas in your life that you can change/make better for your marriage. I def. struggle w/this myself, but I have found that when I pray to God to change me - to make myself more accepting of my dh for instance - that my attitude changes and that things just go better versus when I say change Him Lord, he doesn't do xy and z. I always seem to then hear Pat Robertson's voice going well you picked him! I know that some of the ladies on here will be able to give you some excellent advice
Just a thought and i have to run to work out........
I was overcome with emotion this morning on something. Even though I will probably never meet some of you ladies in person. We will meet in heaven one day. Just think about it. We'll spend eternity together and I'll get to meet you ladies. And we can worship the Lord together. IT's a really cool thought. How many Christians you probably meet over time briefly or how many tracks you hand out that you'll never know the person until you meet them in heaven. Sobering though and brings tears to my eyes. Love you ladies.
also thaks for your kind words of wisdom.. i do find myself being more patient and just taking a deep breath and going from there. I thank God for getting me through that call even though things aren't resolved because I know that in His time they will get resolved not in my time and I accept that and Thank Him for it. I have Faith that things will turn out better than I can imagine if I leave it to Him. I still haven't gotten things figured out on the kids insurance yet but I am asking God to help me through this. I am putting it in his hands and trying to take things calmly. So you are totally right.
@ twinmom34 lots of prayers for you momma!!
Hi ladies!!!! How was everyone's Christmas????? It was great here. I posted updated and a few belly shots in my dd room. Here's the link http://www.americanpregnancy.org/for...d.php?t=293295
Chat soon. i'm off to walmart when DS gets up. We got 8 inches here but most roads are plowed and i need to get a few things.
Brenda You look great! Love the snow picture!
Sometimes I wish we lived in a place with more 'seasons' we are kinda either in Fall or Spring year round here. Nothing major temp wise. Really nice on one hand, but I sometimes kinda wish for hot summers and snowy winters!
We had a great Christmas the 4 of us, and we survived the bigger Christmas times with both sides of the family. Im exhausted and trying to figure out where to put all the stuff! Im blessed, but sometimes I wish my parents would keep things a bit more simple with gifts!
I'm really frustrated with my mom right now.
She has dated a number (7 or 8?) of men since my parents' divorce (7 years ago). I personally have met 3 of them, one of them this past summer. But the guy she's dating now is different than the one from the summer.
Anyhoo, my younger sister went out east to visit the family for Christmas. Yesterday was supposed to be one of mom's days. Well, mom's boyfriend emailed mom asking if he could come over. My sis wasn't comfy with that (I wouldn't have been either) and said so. Mom texted him and he said he was already on his way over. My sis was upset and called me, asking what she should do. I said she needed to talk to mom and say something like, "Ok, I'll meet him, but if he's planning on staying, I'm going back to Dad's. I'm just not ready to meet this person yet." And my mom says to her, "Well, why don't you just go back to dad's before he gets here then." (Sort of with the attitude like, "Don't let the door hit you on the way out.") My sis called me back and was just sobbing. It's so frustrating when my mom does stuff like this. My sis is driving home today (a 12 hour drive) and so yesterday was her last day with mom.
Anyway, thanks for listening/reading. I had to get that out.
