Tuesdays are trash days

Tuesdays are trash days. We take all the yucky truck loads bags of trash accumulated through the week and get rid of them! YAY. As I was thinking about this, I just praise God that he can take all that sticking trash that accumulates within me and throw it out.

Zoo pics

Here are the kids petting a giant turtle. I couldn't believe we were able to pet him. He was looking right at us.

Here are me and the kids inside the penguin building. LOVE the penguins!

Here are the kids in front of the elephants. It was a good thing I snapped it when I did because right after that one of the elephants relieved himself and it stank soo bad that we practically ran away.

Here are me and Andrew. So cute.

A very kind lady offered to snap the whole family! What a blessing that was.

I can't find my plug to download the pictures so it's going to take me a little longer.I will look around today. This past weekend was great. Jason didn't work-yay! It was very refreshing. We did some rearranging in the house(which I love) and worked on some other projects but it just seemed relaxing. This week I think I am going to do something different with the kids for school. I am going to teach them how to teach. We are going to learn about something(Mayans, Math, etc.. I haven't decided) and then they are going to have to teach it to me at the end of the week. I think they will enjoy it. Maybe they will learn better! After all, I still remember how to make a PB&J from elementary..LOL This week I am also going to work on a website I am trying to put together, more details later.

RawFu challenge

Well, there is a raw food challenge about to begin and I am going to do it. It's 100 days in length and you can make your own personal goals. I am still thinking about my goals. I have alot of things to work on outside of diet too! Exercise, spiritual growth, homeschooling, etc... This feels like New Years resolution time..LOL I even have goals I want my kids to tackle. So, over the next several days I am going to be tossing many things out and keeping with the ones that won't overload me to the point of failure. This challenge is really just about raw foods but I thought it was the perfect opportunity to plow through some other things as well. Hope I'll see some of you over there!

Who/What do you worship?

This is going to be a bit of a rant. I eat mostly raw foods and so I am constantly watching the rawfood forums for new recipes and such. One of the things that drives me crazy is this whole mentality of food worship because it is living. Raw foodist will say that these foods heal cancer, diabetes, and yada...yada.. They will say how great natures food is and it really sounds as if they are worshiping the food and nature. STOP!!! Who made these things?? The creator of the universe, the Alpha and Omega. He is the one that we should bow down and go "Thank you God that your medicine is infinitely better than man's medicine!" He is Jehovah Jireh, not mother nature. I am so thankful that I have a God that provides me with everything I need. He alone makes the food living and he alone heals.

Alex's 2nd b-day

Thursday, July 10, 2008

Earlier this week I went to see my G-Ma(grandmother). She had lung cancer and had surgery. The surgery went well but she isn't doing that great. She is on a respirator which they will try to remove again today. It was extremely hard to watch everything happening. By everything I mean the whole situation. The reason why is that I remember when my Great G-Ma died. This whole thing reminds me how quick our life is on this earth. Next in line is MY mother! That was very disturbing for me and I still haven't processed it fully. I decided I would go back to blogging in the hopes that one day, when I pass over to see my Father, my grankids will know at least a little bit about me.

On another note, we are all well. One VERY exciting thing that happened yesterday was that we got our seat for our van. It's another 3rd row seat to replace our 2 row seat so that we can all fit into the same van. It's in excellent condition. We are just praising God for this little(big) gift.
