EVERY TIME I have a yard sale EVERYONE man that stops HAS to ask me about my brother's Mustang that is sitting in my sister's carport. And they ask me ALL these questions about it and I'm just like I have NO CLUE!!! Well my brother is like MARY!!! The car is NOT for sale sooooo STOP giving people MY NUMBER!!! And then he is like UNLESS someone is willing to pay $10,000 for it, I'm NOT selling it!!! Sooooo after the MILLION people that asked me on Friday, I made this sign and taped it to my Brother's car for this past SATURDAY!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!


If your interested call JOHN @602-555-8581

When life gives you lemons...

 "...with God all things are possible."
(Matthew 19:26)

Tuesday, January 25, 2011


I woke up this morning with ONE thought on my mind...NO THING can make you happy...NOTHING...ONLY JESUS!!!! The key to happiness is in knowing, that JESUS IS THE ANSWER!!! :]

God is Good!!!

Late at night last week I got a phone call from a close friend. I listened as my friend told me that their father had died. My heart was soooo saddened to hear this news. I could hear my friend's voice begin to tremble as they began to express their sorrow. The brokeness in their heart as they told me that their father was not saved. "I'm never going to see my father again," they said. I listened as my friend continued to talk and then in the midst of everything they said, "But God is still good!" It really stirred me when my friend said that. Here my friend was, praising God in the middle of hopeless despair. In the middle of knowing that the would NEVER see their father again. My friend went on to quote some scripture to me and continued worshipping God. My friends words have continuousley been with me. "But God is still good!"
THATS WHAT I'M talking about!!! You know why my friend could say that in the midst of their heartache?! BECAUSE THEY HAVN'T FORGOTTEN!!! Because they STILL know what God has done for them. My friend still remembers back to several years ago when God filled them with the Holy Ghost. They remember the hopelesness they felt and how God brought them out of this world of sin. I think that sometimes in our humanity we get stuck in a rut about the goodness of God. We think that the goodness of God is based on our cirucumstances, but it is not. God is eternal and he was good BEFORE we that are finite were even created. His goodness is ALL THE TIME because  he is eternal.
It doesn't matter what your going through...If God saved your soul, and HE DID, from a burning hell than he is GOOD!!! Think about it, JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS!!! HE IS GOOD!!! HE IS GOOD!!! HE IS GOOD!!! The song says, "No  matter what tomorrow brings, or what it has in store, I know that I will praise The Lord!!!" It is my desire to be able to say in my life, no matter the circumstance, "God is STILL GOOD!!!" As my friend quoted to be from Job 1:21 ...

"...the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD."

Hate MAIL!!!

I just got this hate mail comment...I was like WOW!!! I think its been at least a year since I got any!!! The comment was left on my theme song post...This is what they said...

I think your theme song would go something like: *I am stuck on myself. I am in love with myself. I am conceited. I have nothing better to do than talk about how awesome I am.*

You are the most conceited person I know and I'm really not sure why. You're more than ugly, fatter than anyone I've ever seen and have nothing better to do than sit on your fat butt and blog about how awesome you are. You're not awesome. You're conceited.

If you were pretty and awesome, you would have been married a long time ago. GET A LIFE!
WOW...i'm not gonna deny that that hurt my feelings. Even with as good of self-esteem that I have, YEAH..that HURT!!! I'm sorry that you feel the way you do. I understand that we all struggle with our self image and self esteem, but I honestly don't believe i'm ugly even if I am fat...and I'm sure neither are you...unless your saying mean things...that IS UGLY!!! There are  A LOT of things that I could say right now to put you in your place...BUT...I have a feeling that your one of my Apostolic sisters (Seriousley doubt its a guy...THEY ALL ♥LOVE♥ME;) and I don't feel right about tearing you down! Only God's love can change us and make us a better person.  Whoever you are I love you and forgive you!!! I know that to post a comment like that, you must not be a very happy person. I hope that you will discover God's JOY...cuz its THE BEST thing EVER!!!  I pray that God will change your heart and help you to see you are a beautiful person too. Not because of what you wear or because your THIN OR MARRIED... but becuase your made in the image of God. The more of God you get in your life the prettier you will become...TRUE BEAUTY COMES FROM GOD!!!
♥Mary :)
P.S. If you ever wanna talk...Mar Bear hugs are THE BEST!!!

What do you do WHEN....

What do you do when heartache comes?!
What do you do when you can't stop the tears from flowing?
When you lay awake at night knowing that you can't fix whats happened?
What do you do when your so broken hearted you don't think you'll ever be whole again?

The Bible says in Mathew that the king beheaded his cousin John the Baptist as a present to the daughter of Herodias. "And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought [it] to her mother." How do you think that made JESUS feel?!?! Knowing that HIS cousin was beheaded as a BIRTHDAY present to some spoiled little BRAT!!! This is what the Bible says happened...

"When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities. And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither to me. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray..." (Matthew 14:13-23)

I was soooo ASTOUNDED by this passage when I read it...I was just like WOW!!!
His FIRST response was to get away and mourn...BUT when Jesus realized that their was people that NEEDED him...he had COMPASSION on them!!! What did he do?!!?! He ministered to them! He healed the sick!!! The disciples thought the Jesus should be LEFT ALONE...BUT JESUS...He fed the hungry! He fed THE HUNGRY!!! HE FED THE HUNGRY!!! HE FED THE HUNGRY!!! AND HE PRAYED!!! AND then if you keep reading you know what Jesus does NEXT?!?! He walks on water!!! Oh what a MIGHTY AWESOME God we serve!!! What a beautiful example he is to us!!

SO WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN  heartache comes?!?!
YOU PRAY and you get up and you KEEP ON WALKING!!! You go on with your life and with the things God has called you to do!!! You may think that it is best to just stay away and bandage your wounds... BUT...You need to realize that there are PEOPLE that NEED YOU!!! There are SOULS that NEED YOU!!! Somone needs YOU to minister to them!!! Someone needs YOUR LOVE!!! Someone NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS!!! Someone NEEDS YOUR HELP!!! OH AND...Feed the hungry!!! There are hungry souls everywhere that are waiting to be fed!!! Feed the hungry!!! Feed the hungry!!! FEED THE HUNGRY!!! FEED THE HUNGRY!!! There is something  about reaching out to the lost that will bring healing to your heart...
You do this and before you know it...your gonna be walking on water!!! Maybe not physically, BUT spiritually!!! You focus on God and he is gonna bless you. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalms 147:3)

There is NOTHING the devil would like more than for you to lose focus and get all hung up on your problem, on your wounds, on you heartache...BUT you know what you gotta do?!?! You just keep walking!!! Keep walking, keep walking...

" give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness..." (ISAIAH 61: 3)

I saw this book in my friend's purse Sunday night at church and just HAD to look it over!!! After reading the first couple of paragraphs I was HOOKED and knew that I was gonna have to order one for myself ASAP!!! AnywayZ, I turned to another one of my friends and was like awwwww... listen to what Debi Pearl says here, "Is there a young man that in passing you have thought would be a good husband? Have you been praying for him by name?" My friend is like "Ooooo"...raises her eybrows at me and is like, "Soooo HAVE YOU been praying for someone by name?!" I think about it for a few seconds... Hmmmmm...Praying for A young man by name?! ONE???  As in singular?!?! I'm all "GIRRRRRL...I'm soooooo SPIRITUAL... I've ACTUALLY... been praying for  SEVERAL young men BY NAME!!!" HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Heeeeey... WHY do you think there are sooooooo many awesome, Godly,  young men in Pentecost?!?!
Mary's BEEN PRAYING!!! ;)

Guess what January 18th is?!?!

Take a wild guess at what JANUARY 18th is?!?!?! YES, thats right...its my HALF BIRTHDAY!!! Woooohooo!!! Soooo exciting eh?! ;) Yes, THAT DOES MEAN that in EXACTLEY 6 MONTHS I will be having a WHOLE BIRTHDAY...this is an advance notice for you all that were wondering and felt the need to mark your calenders...JULY 18th is THE DAY to celebrate the incredible birth of ME!!! But why wait till then...lets start NOW!!! HAHA!!! If any one needs gift ideas I AM VERY EASY TO PLEASE!!! Stuffed animals, hair accessories, chocolate AND... I think THESE roses are BEAUTIFUL!!!

 I soooooo would scream if I had these!!!
AnywayZ, I just wanted  you all to be aware of what January 18th was celebrating!!!
P.S. Also, happy whole birthday on the 18th to MY DAD and I think also Robby Duncan!!! What an honor to be born on MY HALF BIRTHDAY!!!! Feel SPECIAL, very, VERY special!!! :]

Puhleeeeeze...just GO!!!

Anyone that knows me at all knows that one thing that I love, love, PARTIES!!! I LOVE attending them and I love planning them for my friends and family AND I LOVE for EVERYONE to come!!! Even though parties can be a lot of work at times, to me it is worth it! ONE thing I GREATLY DISLIKE is when I invite someone and then at the last minute they can't come!! Even though there are other people coming... I still feel disapointed!!! Of course i'm perfectly understanding to them, but in my mind i'm like, WHAT?!!?! How can you NOT come?! I'm thinking, Awwwwwww ...I don't care if your sick or if you have homework or WHATEVER!!! Just come!!! Cuz i've been waiting for you and preparing for you!!! I cleaned the whole house for you!!! I cooked soooo much food for YOU!!! Do you know JUST HOW MANY DISHES I had to wash?! I mopped! I swept! i vacumed! I dusted! (Okaaaay maybe I forgot to dust!!!;) I cleaned the bathroom TWICE this week!!!! I scrubbed the toilet for you!!! Wait did you hear me?! I said, I SCRUBBED THE TOILET FOR YOU!!!! And even though the party goes on and you still have a grand time, you can't help but think, "Man, I really wish Shashasha had been here...she really would have enjoyed herself...I know she would have LOVED my awesome chicken salad and my bbq meatballs...and ugh...I  EVEN scrubbed that toilet for her...BUMMER!"

I think thats how we often make God feel. Psalm 23:5 says, "Though preparest a table before me..." Each and every day, God has prepared something for us. Whether its at church or through our prayer and devotion time, God has something that he wants to give to each of us every single day. We often come up with excuses, for WHY we are missing out on something with God. Sometimes they are good excuses, but most of the time they are pretty LAME...especially when you think about what all God did to prepare for us. It was more than just some toilet scrubbing...Jesus was nailed to a cross, went to the grave AND rose from the dead to prepare for us. Thats a lot of preparing to do just FOR US...and God wants to give us that something EVERYDAY!!! When we wake up in the morning, and we know its time to pray or for church, instead of moaning and groaning about it just think in your head, "Lets get this party started!!! Woot, WOOT!" Yeah I know i'm cRaZy but WHY miss out?! Your sick? Well...HELLO...This is A JESUS party and He just happens to be THE HEALER!!! Why make excuses to the one that has worked soooo hard and gave His WHOLE life for us... Everyday...PARTY with Jesus...lets JUST GO!!!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Psalm 23:5-6)

Weeeeeellllll as I said in an earlier post this week, its TRUE...God REALLY does have a way of just squashing the pride RIGHT OUT OF YOU!!! Okaaaaaaay sooooo I made this TOTALLY awesome Chocolate cake for a friend's birthday this past Sunday. It was soooooooo good!!! I mean like, EVERYONE was complimenting me on it and I was OH YEAH!!! I'm SUCH a gooood cook!!!  I'm soooo AWESOME!!! So I decided that I would make this SAME cake for my brother's birthday on Tuesday and OMW...WOW!!! Well it tasted GOOOOOOD but... I sooooo messed up on the icing!!! LOL! I made such a mess out of it and it looked HORRID!!! My brothers TOTALLY cracked up laughing when they saw it!!! i was like MAN!!! God you SURE do have a way of squeezing the pride out of me!!!

The SAME thing happened last year at my brother's birthday party!!!! I had been making ALL this awesome stuff that was turning out soooo GREAT!!! I mean I had just made this AWESOME melt in your mouth apple pie! I had made HOMEMADE Chicken pot pies, the crust and EVERYTHING  from scratch and I was like SOOOOO bragging to EVERYONE about it!!! Then, I MADE my brother's birthday cake last year and I just KNEW it was gonna be AWESOME!!!

AND SOOOOOO I doubled the recipe...PROBLEM... was that I still used the same size pan which was taking it a really long time to cook in the middle, BUT on the outside it was cooking regular, BUT the middle kept being raw and the more I cooked it, the more DRY it was on the outside...FINALLY...the middle was cooked but the cake was PRETTY DRIED out!!! Well I frosted it so it STILL looked good and HOPED that it wouldn't be noticable...BUT IT WAS!!! LOL! Everyone was like, OH MARY!!! HAHA!!! Well then the Abbott's came to pick up Denae and Bishop Abbott and I found myself STUPIDLY asking if he wanted to take a peace with him. ( I have NO idea WHY I asked since it was all dried out!) He said yes and so I cut him a peice in the middle and gave it to him and they left!

A week later I was talkin to Denae and I was like MAN...God REALLY has a way of humbling me. I'm like, WHENEVER I start bragging on my cooking, the NEXT thing I know I'm totally MESSING UP! I'm like I mean my pride in my cookin was soooo HIGH and now its like GONE!!! And she is like, well what did you mess up on? Soooooo i'm like ABE's CAKE..DUH!!! and she is like, WHAT?! My parent's LOVED your cake!!! I'm like WHAT?! 4 REALZ?! She was like, yeah they said it was perfectly moist and stuff...THEN I remembered...I had Cut them the peice EXACTLY in the middle!!!! Soooo WHILE every one else had suffered and neary choked on the dryness of the cake...The Abbott's had gotten the ONE PERFECT peice!!! HAHAHA!!!She was like, HONESTLY Mary, they LOVED it!!! They couldn't even get enough of it!!!

 I was like OMW!!! WOW!!! AND then I told Denae...Weeelllll THERE goes my pride...its WAAAAAAAAY back up again!!! AHAHA! But YOU know that God is ALWAYS right there to squashing it back out of me again...I JUST FEEL bad for my brother that the 'pride squashing' keeps taking place on HIS BIRTHDAY CAKES!!!

Getting BEHIND!

I saw this picture and just TOTALLY busted up laughing!!! It reminds me of when I was a kid, and the song leader was introducing our pastor to preach and he was like, "Who's gonna get BEHIND the preacher tonight?!?! And every was like all clappin and were like AMEN!!! And I was like WOW!!! This is soooooooo cool!!! We're gonna all be standin behind the preacher when he preaches tonight!!! And the whole time i'm trying to figure out HOW our church was gonna fit on the platform while he preaches. So he starts preaching and I'm just waiting and he is preaching and I'm just waiting and he is preaching and i'm waiting and waiting and waiting and finally Pastor Abbott says its time to stand up and pray and i'm like WHAT?! WHAT?! But we NEVER got  to stand behind the preacher!!!! I was sooooooo DISAPOINTED!!!! AND from then on I would KEEP hearing them say to get behind the pastor, BUT we NEVER ACTUALLY DID!!! I couldn't figure that out!!! Why would you say it and then not do it and WHY do they ALWAYS say that we should do it!!! To this day I wonder what would happen if i REALLY did stand behind my pastor when he preaches!!!! Next time they say it, I think I'm just gonna have to FIND OUT!!! ;) ;)
Heeeeeeeey Classic Mary Moment readers....I want to inroduce to you all my friend Kim!!! It feels like we have known each other FOREVER...BUT we only met Sunday night!!! LOL I have a feeling that we're gonna have some HILARIOUSLEY AWESOME times together!!!! :)

Being unleavened!!!

Did you know that a serving of crackers is about the same amount of calories as a dinner roll? What is the difference between the two? Leaven!!! In the book of Exodous God calls the Isrealites to eat unleavened bread...

Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread. (Exodous 12:17-20)

A cracker is unleavened bread. So basically God called them to eat CRACKERS!!! Good old saltines, while everyone else was feasting on soft, warm, butter, melt-in-your-mouth, dinner rolls!!! God wanted the Isrealites eating bread without yeast in it. The unleavened bread was a representation of living without the world. Without yeast, bread is unleavened. It stays hard and flat. But you take the SAME ingredients and add some  yeast to it and the next thing you know, the bread begins to rise and it seems like it is really big. Waaaaaaaay bigger than that measly saltine. But if you take that soft delicious roll and squish it in your hand the roll is no longer big. It becomes small...because really thats still what it is. But the yeast had puffed it up and made it to APEAR to be something that it really was NOT!!!

Pride is the SAME way!!!

Pride will make you to think you are something that your REALLY NOT!!! It will cause you to seek your own way ...BUT all it takes is ONE little squeeze by the hand of God and we realize what we REALLY ARE!!!

♪♫Lord give me a spirit of you gave when...I first called your name...REPLACE all my PRIDE..with HUMILITY...Lord a BROKEN and willing vessel...I'll be!!! ♥♫♪♫

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
Lord HELP me to NOT put into myself, that which make me puffed up!!!
Lord help me to be UNLEAVENED!!! :)

Classic Mary Moments will now be introducing a new monthly feature. Along with the Apostolic Male Model, I will now be doing an Apostolic Beauty post once a month. The purpose of this post will to feature a beautiful girl, BUT not just for her looks. I mean the way I see it, natural beauty is EASY to come by and its inherited. Its NOT something YOU in any way acomplished! I mean, I just look in the mirror and am like HEEEEEEEEEEEEEY! ;) REALLY, in my oppinion everyone can have natural beauty- Just learn how to do your hair, put on some cute clothes, the right colors...yup, as far as i am concerned, being NATURALLY beautiful is EASY to acomplish...especially for us Apostolic girls!!! (Woot, woot!;) But this new monthy post is gonna be about girls that go BEYOND just natural beauty. This is going to feature beautiful girls with beautiful spirits to match!!! Cause I mean really, for me, being beautiful on the outside is a WHOLE lot easier than being beautiful on the inside. Being beautiful on the outside is a little work, but being beautiful on the inside is HARD!!! It's something you have to work on CONTINUALLY and it ain't something every pretty face has got! If you would like to nominate an Apostolic beauty, please email me at Tell me WHY you pick that girl? Describe her attitude and why and what she has done to deserve this nomination.
Sooooo far the first three months are FILLED!!! Two that I picked out on my own and one that has been nominated!!!
