The National Day of Prayer

I have heard Rumors that Obama wants to end the national day of prayer! He will never do that! As long as there are Christians, we will pray! It is time we as Christians stand up for what we believe in! On May the 6th, Let all the Christians rally together and show Obama that we will not falter, we will not waver, we will not fail!

The Joys of Springtime!

Well, the flowers are blooming and the trees are budding! I thank God for the way He Paints the World! No one can do what He does! My allergies have been horrible and I developed a cough. Thank God I finally got some new medicine that allowed me to be able to sleep! I know there are lots of people much sicker and in the hospital. So, my allergies are small. Today, my oldest daughter is going to have some moles removed from under her arm at 3:15 Eastern. Pray that goes well. Well, have a great day! Remember God loves you and so do I!

We went to the Outlet mall today! We had fun and shopped til we dropped! Finally found some clothes at a decent price! We ate at Chick Fil A and had ice cream! We really had a great time! I love days like that!

The Birds Are Chirping!

It's Easter Morning and I am happy! I love listening to the birds chirping! They are happy because Jesus rose from the tomb and He is alive and well! I went to bed early last night. I was very tired and my legs have been hurting. My allergies woke me up early this morning. I was sneezing. Oh Joy. I have pretty bad allergies from now through October. My daughter's allergies are even worse than mine. Well, today we are going to church. Then, to my sister in law's for Easter Dinner. Hopefully I will squeeze a nap in today. Yes, life is good.

A Message From Michelle Dugger

A Message To Mothers From Michelle Duggar

It was 1:00 AM in the morning as I stood folding laundry with tears streaming down my cheeks. Feelings of being overwhelmed flooded my mind. I cried aloud, "LORD I NEED YOUR HELP, I can't do it all! I feel so inadequate! Diapers, dishes, laundry, meals, cleanup, school lessons, baths, hugs, kisses, correction..." My list seemed to go on and on.

Then it was as if a still small voice said, "Michelle, it's easy to praise ME when things are going good, but are you willing to praise ME now?" Immediately the scripture that says, "Offer up a sacrifice of praise", came to mind.

I said, "OK Lord, I will praise you even now! It really is a sacrifice!" So through the tears I began to sing, "The joy of the Lord is my strength". In my heart there was a release as if a burden had been lifted. I finished the laundry at 2 AM and went to bed.

Days later, I was at our piano teacher's home (at 7 AM) trying to catch up on paperwork while the children were taking their lessons. Instead, I kept drifting off to sleep! The teacher noticed and asked, "Are you OK?" I replied, "I'm fine, I'm just tired. I was up late finishing laundry."

As we talked more she said that she actually enjoyed doing laundry and that she would be glad to come and help me! That weekend when she arrived we had mountains of dirty laundry, and when she left we had nice, neat, orderly stacks of clean laundry! For 12 years now, our piano teacher, whom we consider a part of our family and loving call "NaNa" has faithfully come (now twice a week) to help us with laundry! GOD sent "An angel" in answer to my cry for help.

He is faithful to hear the humble cries of his children. "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up." God lifted my burden (literally mountains of laundry!) and freed me to meet the more urgent needs of my family. "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto Him be glory..."

Remember mothers, where God guides He provides!

With Love,


Cleaning and Easter Egg Hunt!

Today I have been cleaning house, dusting, vacuuming and mopping. Propping my left ankle up to keep the swelling down. We are eating lunch now and then the kids are gonna have an Easter Egg hunt. Hubby got off work early today and has been doing some work around the house.
