Awesome church!!!

Church was really, really good tonight! My brother preached a message tonight on the power of God. At the alter call this man and woman that have visited several times came down to the alter and were praying. Some of us were praying with the lady and her and her husband were holding hands and then Bro. Davy came over and laid hands on both of them and was praying for about a minute and then all of the sudden BOOM they were both slain in the spirit at the same time. It was truly awesome!!! Their son was just standin there like WHAT in the world just happened to my parent's?!?! I know the lady got the Holy Ghost for sure, I don't know about her husband. But I was really excited about the whole thing...I mean just seeing God touch them as a couple like that was sooooo COOL!!!

My heart...

My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed:
 I will sing and give praise (Psalm 57:7) 

This scripture has been on my mind all day today- I just keep thinking about it. What did David mean when he said this? I looked up the word fixed in the dictionary. It says;
1.fastened, attached, or placed so as to be firm and not readily movable; firmly implanted; stationary; rigid.
2.rendered stable or permanent, as color.
3.set or intent upon something; steadily directed: a fixed stare.
4.definitely and permanently placed: a fixed buoy; a fixed line of defense.
5.not fluctuating or varying; definite: a fixed purpose.

WOW! When you read the scriptures before this in the bible you will see that
David cried out this prayer to God at a time in his life where he felt like everything was falling apart, yet he was still holding on to God. 

I think that in life, in our walk with God we all come to a place that we have to make up our mind. A time where we stop wondering IF we are gonna make it and JUST decide I AM gonna make it!!! 

It doesn't mean that we don't have struggles or questions. It doesn't mean that we won't make mistakes or trip. It just means that IF I do fall, I'm gonna get back up!!! I am gonna HOLD on to God NO MATTER what!!! 

It means even though people have done you wrong- your gonna keep praising him. If you re-wrote the scripture to go with the dictionary definition it would go like this-
My heart is fastened and attached to you God. It is planted firmly and cannot be moved. It is stable and permanent.My mind is intent on You and steadily directed by You. It is definite, permanent, not changing from moment to moment or by the circumstances around me. My purpose is to praise you God, therefore, I will!!! 

Just a little something I thought I would share- God laid it upon me, perhaps someone needed to hear this!!!

Where did she hear that?!?!

Sooooo last week I was in the van with my neice Marry Joe and we were talkin about "boys"! (Yeah, I talk to my neice about boys! LOL) and so she had liked this one African boy that we bring to church and so I was teasin her about him. So she looks at me and she whispers another boys name really quickly and I was like WHAT?!?! You like him?! And then she whispers something else really quickley all embarrassed like and I was like WHAT did you JUST say?!?! sOOOOOOOO she says it again and sure enough I had heard her right!!! She says, "Fooday has the HOTTEST eyes in the WHOLE world!!!" I was like WHAT?!?! I was laughing SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard and I was like OMW that is soooooo funny cause this boy really does have like the prettiest big brown eyes, framed with LONG lashes!!! But I was like thinking to myself MAN where did she get that from? How did she think to say he HAS the HOTTEST eyes in the whole world!!! She wouldn't just come up with that terminology on her own, she HAD to have heard someone else talk about guys like that before...and someone that she is with like quite a bit...BUT the only person I could think of was like me...OOOPS!!! LOLOLOL Yup, thats right...ME!!! Awwwwwwwww!!!!! ;)

So I go in give out hugs to everyone, sit there with them and am talking to them. After a little while I gotta leave so I get up to give out another round of hugs. When I go to hug Esther's one Aunt who is around my age, she holds her belly and Says, Mary, I am having a baby!!! I am like, What? For reals? She like holds her stomach laughin and is like yeah!!! I am like Nuh uh!!! Then she laughs and says no, I am just getting fat like you Mary!!! And she says it like ALL happy and excited!!! I am like OMW!!! LOL Cause I had noticed that they were all getting little stomachs and when they from Africa there were like SOOOOOOOOOO thin!!! I mean Esther's mom was like seriousley thinner than Esther.

Black Princess...

I am really excited that Disney is FINALLY getting a black princess!!! I was talking about it with my Esther a couple of months ago and I was like I can't believe Disney doesn't have a black princess yet...that is soooooooooooooo NOT cool!!! They have a blond, a red head, a brunette, and Aisian girl, a middle Eastern, a Native American...And I told Esther that we should come up with A black princess and I even thought it should look just like Esther...cause she is like SOOOOOOOOO beautiful!!! BUT it looks like Disney read my thoughts!!! I guess the story line is gonna be of the fairy tale, "The Princess and the Frog" and it takes place in New Orleans!!! (LOL) Well here is a pic and PERSONALLY, I think Esther is WAAAAAAAAAAAAY prettier, but this chick is cute too!!! Oooooooooo and heeeeeeeey, CHECK OUT THAT PRINCE!!! Ooo, la, la!!!

Mayonnaise History

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise(Now more commonly known a Best Foods) was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York . This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day. The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is, of course, known as.........
Sinko de Mayo
HAHAHA!!! Hope Everyone has a good Cinco de Mayo!!! ;)

This is sooooooo cRaZy weird but I just found out that our family is related to Romo through marriage!!! LOL I was JUST talkin to him on the phone and he was tellin me that he was talkin to his sister-in-law in Alaska and somehow he got on the subject of my sister-in-law Jewel and his sister-in-law was like Jewel, I know her. So they figured out that it was the same Jewel and that they are second cousins. So it's like this: Romo's sister-in-law is my sister-in-law's, mom's cousin- so they are second cousins. Romo was like "wait, does this mean we are like..." "FAMILY!!!" i screamed!!! LOL Well kinda-sorta through marriage twice. Still it was really freaky!!! We were trying to figure it out exactly and I was like Okaaaaay it's like this...When my brother and Jewel have their baby, and your brother and his wife have a baby, those two babies will be BLOOD related!!! Plus Romo is not alone out here...he has a TON of family in church now...WOOHOO!!!
Soooooo he really IS my brother from another mother!!
(I knew it! ;)
The funny thing is that when we first met each other we wern't family, but it took my brother marrying the girl he married and his brother marrying the girl he married for it to happen and they both got married this past year----> soooooooooo weird how they linked all the peices together!!! It really is a SMALL WORLD after all!!! :)
