Been away but now I'm back!

I haven't posted a blog in a while, but I have been reading all of yours! I love so much coming in from playing outside and relaxing on the couch with my laptop reading everyone's latest funny, heartwarming, and inspiring stories. I have needed those stories lately. I want to ask you to remember my family in your prayers. We have gone through a lot in the past couple of weeks. After the loss of my grandfather, my mother's mother fell and broke her foot. She is now living with my parents for a while until she can put some weight back on her foot and take care of herself. This has put a lot of stress on my parents although they do not choose to show it. I myself have been struggling with a few issues in my own life and I need your prayers. I haven't felt worthy to write lately because the devil is trying me with negativity in my heart. Please pray that I give it ALL to an all knowing and powerful GOD! Enough abou that....let's talk about the thing that puts a smile on my face each and every day!
Emma is doing great and is growing up so fast right in front of my eyes! She is talking like a "big girl" now and is constantly in to something! She just turned 20 months this past Monday and has quite the personality! She keeps us going ALL the time. She LOVES being outside and throws quite the fit when we come inside! By the way...she is such a girl! SHE LOVES SHOES!!!!
Justin is great! He was blessed with a job at Wal-Mart as an assistant manager! He is enjoying it and I think I have him convinced that since he works there, he has to do all the shopping while he's there! I'm still working on it!!! :-) God has blessed us time and time again and we continue to thank him every day! Please remember us in your prayers as I do for you! I hope you have a blessed week!!

I have missed you blogging too! We have been doing some playing though! We love us some Emma Lou Hoo at our house! I will pray for ya'll for sure. The devil is a whisperer. He never talks loud or pushy. He just whispers...stupid stuff,like "no one likes you, you will never be good enough, no one loves you, you need this thing to be happy, or he should treat you better". I am hear to tell you that the devil is a pooty head. (Emma would like that since she likes poots) lol. Chin up Girlie!....It's all LIES! That is all he has got! And Rumors....lol (the neighborhood gossip)

It's good to hear from you again. I am so proud of the woman you have become. I know you are a great mom. It is so easy to let Satan get you down. I have been there many times. Just remember Satan is a liar. Remind him to whom you belong and call him the liar that he is. Love ya!
