End of the week thankfulness!!!!

I've decided that I AM going to start doing this weekly post of thankfulness!!! The big sis said she likes reading these thankfulness posts...therefore...I aim to please the people that matter most!!! Besides, I mean WHYYYY NOT find things EVERY WEEK to be thankful for???
Someone gave my sis the sign above and I thought, its SOOOO TRUE!!! There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for!!! Earlier in this week, I was just kinda feeling down, and I just started singing, "He's done SO MUCH FOR me, I can NOT tell it all, I can Not tell it all! He filled me with the Holy Ghost, I can NOT tell it all, I can NOT tell it all, I can NOT tell it all, HE HAS Taken my sins away!!!!" And just singing that song lifted my spirits as I began to think about what all my God has done for me!!! Truly there always, always, ALWAYS is something to be thankful for!!!
First of all, I want to thank God that he has helped this last week or so to get back on track with healthy eating and since last Friday I have lost 8 pounds!!! YAAAAAAY!!! Thank you JESUS!!!
NEEEEEEEXXXXXT... I want to thank God that last weekend I noticed that my car was starting to hesitate while starting. So my brother John told me to take it to Auto Zone and get the charging system tested...its FREE!!! Thank GOD right there for FREE TESTING...sooooo I did annnnnnd the lady, YES A LADY at Auto Zone...LOL...said that the battery was NO GOOD!!!
Weeeeeeeeeeeelllllll THANKFULLY the previous owner of my vehicle, THE HUNK, had bought a battery with a warranty on it!!! Soooooo it was brought to Walmart and the battery was changed with NO COST TO ME!!! Thank you Rev. Daniel Abbott for having bought a battery with a warranty on it!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!
I'm thankful THAT Albertson's still gives out...
FREE COOKIES TO THE KIDDOS!!! Yaaaaaaaay!!! Yes parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, babysitters and nannies, just bring your children over to the bakery and ask if the children can get a cookie...HOW COOL IS THAT?"!?!
 I'm Thankful that I got to make strawberry pancakes with my lil nephew, Gwapo Jose!!!! I luverrrrrrs him so much!!! Plus, he told me I was pretty, with out me even asking or prompting him yesterday...YES, I ADMIT...I do ask and PROMPT HIM NORMALLY...BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
I'm thankful THAT TOMORROW IS... 
Jubilee Sunday!!!
Pastor Abbott decided that THIS year or church would be joining in for all the Jubilee Sundays with the Glendale church! I'm just like YESSSSS...because I've practically waited MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THIS!!!
Okaaaaaaaaaay super funny story about Jubilee Sunday! Last week before prayer, a group of us, that had gone on outreach were sitting around in the foyer of our church before prayer started. My pastor walks in and is telling us where Jubilee Sunday is. I'm like, Oh okaaaaay...soooooo do you know who is going to be preaching it?!
He is just kinda quiet...I'm like, WEEEEEEELLLL the ONLY REASON I am asking is BECAUSE...I'm just WONDERING if whoever it is preaching is going to be MY FUTURE HUSBAND???!?! Pastor is like, OH TRUST ME, its NOT GOING TO BE YOUR FUTURE HUSBAND!!! I was like, NEVERRRR KNOW!!! He's like, BELIEVE ME, I KNOW!!! I was just thinking like...Okaaaaaay...turn's out PASTOR WAS RIGHT...bahahahahahaha...cuz...
After we all found out who was preaching, Pastor was like, NOW DO YOU KNOW WHY I SAID ITS NOT YOUR FUTURE HUSBAND??? BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! We were all laughing soooooooooooooo hard about that!!! I'm yup, YOU WERE RIGHT...Its most definitely NOT my future husband!!! Buuuuuuuuuuut you NEVERRRR NO...ONE JUST MIGHT BE!!! ;)))
Last of all...My purse either got LOST OR STOLEN yesterday!!!!
Soooooooo NO i'm NOT actually thanking God that it got stolen, buuuuuuuuuuuut....In EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS!!! And there is something to be thankful for in this!!! First of all, I had NO MONEY IN IT! I had checked my bank account to see if  I had gotten paid earlier in the day, and when I did, I thought should I take some money out...cuz I usually like to take out my tithes and gas money for the next two weeks...and I was like naw...I'll jus get it later!!! GOOD THING I DIDN'T GET ANY OUT BECAUSE...that money would have been GONE!!!
Anywayz, when I was actually realizing that my purse WAS INDEED GONE, I was starting to feel really down and BUMMMMMED about it!!! you know, the whole, O WOE IS ME syndrome!!! LOL And I felt like God just prompted me that I needed to give thanks and to praise and worship him! I was like okaaaaaaaaaaay.... Thank you God...your soooo Gooood... Buuuuuut ya was all like half-hearted...THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN I REMEMBERED SOMETHING!!!
On Monday, the big sis had given me the money to pay MJ's last school payment for the year..a lil over $300 dollars...I had FORGOTTEN every day that week to actually walk into the office and pay it...buuuuuuuuuuuuut... Randomly, Friday morning hours I REMEMBERED and paid it!!! Just a few hours later my purse was STOLEN OR LOST...its ME soooooo ONLY GOD KNOWS what REALLY HAPPENED...buuuuuuuut YES...that money WOULD HAVE BEEN IN MY PURSE!!! As the realization hit me I was like...Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus!!! Yes, its a hassle canceling banking cards, getting a new liscense, I lost my adorabley, sparkly, Coach watermelon slice key chain, buuuuuut at least there was no money, no phone and no keys in it annnnnnnnnnd I PAID MJ'S SCHOOL BILL!!!
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. Annnnnd Looking on the BRIGHTER SIDE of things, I just realized that this means THAT, I NEED a NEW PURSE/WALLET!!! WITHOUT BREAKING MY NEW YEARS RESOLUTION OF NO SHOPPING FOR THINGS THAT I DON"T NEED!!! This is NOT a loop hole for shopping...LOL...this is a NEED!!! ;))) Soooo thank you Jesus for a reason to go SHOPPING!!!

Why the NAME???

I was listening to Focus On The Family earlier and the man was telling a story about a little boy that was lost in the grocery store. So this little boy started calling out his mommy's name! He said, "Heather! Heather! HEATHER!!!" Finally his mommy heard him and came and rescued him from being lost. But after she hugged him and calmed him down she asked him WHY he called her Heather and not just MOMMY??? And the little boy said, because Mommy, there are A LOT of mommies in this store...BUUUUUUUUUUUT I WANTED...
Now, this had absolutely NOTHING to do with the point of the story that the radio was saying, buuuuuuuuuut this got me to thinking, when I was in college, writing for the college paper, I was writing an inspiring story and I was quoting the girl that the story was written about and I wrote, that she said she found love in the arms of Jesus. My teacher, who was a "Christian" said, how about, INSTEAD of saying in the arms of JESUS, how about we paraphrase her to say she found love in the arms of GOD! I was just kinda like, okaaaaaay buuuuut I don't really see WHYYYY??? I mean, after all, JESUS IS GOD!!!
 She said, well because when you say God, people are MORE ACCEPTING of that, because almost everyone believes in God in some sort of way or the other. Muslims, Jews, Hindu, Budhists, Bahai, ...they all believe in God, so they won't mind reading God, buuuuut WHEN YOU SAY, Jesus, now your being exclusive, because most people believe in God, buuuuut they don't believe that JESUS IS GOD!!! Weeeeeeeeellll...this DID NOT SET WELL WITH ME AT ALL!!! I mean, I HAD NO problem just saying God, UNTIL she explained to me WHY! That's what I call watering down and diluting the message, compromising...annnnd YES...also the reason WHY I didn't make it as a Christian in a career of Journalism!!! LOL
You wanna know WHY I like to say JESUS, soooo much WHEN I PRAY??? Bcause, this world is filled with gods, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut...when I have a problem, when I have a need, when I am afraid, when I need a shelter, when I need a friend, when I'm scared and alone, I DON't just want any o god, I SAY JESUS!!!

Chocolate baby!!!

♥Mary Frances :) 

Jus' sayin!!!

Okaaaaaaaay soooo this is like a super funny story with one of the lil boys I bring to church. There is this 9 year old boy named Prince that I have known since he was like two years old! I always thought he was soooooo adorable and was ALWAYS trying to get him to talk to me when he was a toddler! Buuuuut he was NOT a people's person and ANYTIME ANYONE would touch his head he would SCREAM!! LOL Buuuuuut he was soooooooo ADORABLE that OF COURSE I was ALWAYS trying to get him to talk to me!!! (Story of my life right?!;)
Weeeeeeeeelllll ONE week we're all driving in the church van and one of the teen girls, Miriam, ask me my age and I say 30!!! She's like, so YOUR REALLY 30??? I'm like YES, I've told you all that like a MILLION TIMES!!! She's like, we all thought you were JUST SAYING THAT!!! I'm like, NOPE I really am!!! She's like WOW MARY!! You look soooooooooo GOOOOOD FOR YOUR AGE!!! She's all going on and on, like NOW we know WHY its ALWAYS soooooo hot in the van...etc...I'm like okaaaaaay yeah, whateverrrr!!! LOL!
Soooo she is going on and on about this and all of the sudden we hear a boys voice join in with her,  " Yeah Mary,
Its like kinda quiet then I'm like, Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???? Who said that??? Annnnnnnnd...
It's PRINCE!!!
Sooooo it gets like DEAD SILENT in the van now...and then I just LOST IT!!! I started laughing soooooooooo hard!!! Annnnnnd then soooo did everyone else!!! I mean it was just soooo funny to me especially since I was thinking about how he would neverrrr even let me pat his head as a toddler!!(Heeeeeey a PRINCE thinks i'm FIIIIIIIINE!!! How many girls can say THAT??? All you girls after the Prince of England...Don't be all JELLY of me now!!! ;)))! We were all just laughing and laughing except Prince...Like he had NO CLUE what we all thought was soooooo FUNNNNNY!!  So then Miriam's like, okaaaaaay for a moment there, that was just REALLY AWKWARD PRINCE!!!
He's all like, WHAT?! I was...
Jus' SAYIN!!!

More LOVED!!

I was talking to my friend one time and they were saying, have you noticed how Sis. Ching-Chong seems to favor her one grandchild, lil Ching more than all the others?! I thought about it for a moment and then I said, you know, I don't know that it is that she ACTUALLY favors or loves THAT grandchild MORE than all her other grandkids. I said, I think its just THAT, out of all of Sis. Ching-chong's grandkids, that grandchild shows her THE MOST LOVE!!! And I don't think that its that, her other grandchildren don't love her, they just don't show her their love like that one grandchild!
 I mean, that little child will cry when they don't see her! They run and throw their arms around her, yell out GRANDMA when she walks into the room and smother her in kisses!!! and  When she is sick they worry about her and will ask for prayer for her. I said, so I don't think its that she loves THAT child MORE than all the other grandchildren. That grandmother, is ONLY returning to that grandchild all the LOVE that they show her, which happens to be MORE than her other grandchildren. However, I feel like she would respond in the same way to her other grandkids if they were that way towards her.
That got me to thinking about God. Sometimes we think that God plays favorites, but could it possibly be, that God is just responding to us in the amount of love that we SHOW HIM???
   In the Bible God says, "As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated." Now, of course I stand to be corrected if I am wrong, but I wonder if it was REALLY that God originally JUST HATED Esau, or was it because Esau could care less about the things of God?
When someone shows disdain towards us, it is our natural reaction to in turn not care too much for that person as well. We all know that there are certain people in our lives that we "LOVE" simply because we are Christians and the Bible commands us to love one another! OR as the humorous saying goes, "if it wasn't for YOU, how would I know how to LOVE THE UNLOVEABLE???" When some has no interest and could careless about us, it is our natural reaction to in turn feel that same way about them.
I think that the way God felt about Esau was because of the way Esau felt about God. Esau could careless about God. He disdained the things of God and God in return disdained Esau. Jacob on the other hand desired the things of God. And all though he didn't go about doing things the right way, HIS MOTIVES were after the things of God. I believe that God LOVED Jacob, simply because Jacob LOVED GOD!!!
The Bible says that God ALREADY LOVES us,
"We love him, because he first loved us." (1 John 4:19)
BUUUUUUT what is it that would cause God to show EVEN MORE love to one individual than another???I take care of a little boy that LOVES ME, I don't know what it is about me that he does BUT I do know that because HE LOVES ME, I in turn can't help but love him back SO MUCH. Because HE LOVES ME, I can't help but want to do things for him and give him things that show in return my adoration to him. Could it possibly be that this is the way God, whom we were made in the image of,  is as well towards us. He ALREADY loves us, but is there a way to get him to show us EVEN MORE LOVE???
I believe that THE MORE LOVING we are towards God, THE MORE LOVING, he in return will be towards us. The word loving is NOT just an emotion but an action. There are ACTIONS we can take to show God our love towards him through obedience, prayer, holiness, modesty, devotions, praise and worship. I believe that the more things we do to show God that we love him, THE MORE things he in return will do to show us that he loves us.
I've made it a part of a my daily prayer to ask God, to help me to LOVE HIM MORE!! I want to love him MORE today, than I did yesterday and I want to love him MORE tomorrow than I did today! I want my love for him to expand. I ask God to increase my love towards him. Like a little child finds the benefits in truly showing an adult their love, their are benefits in showing God our love!!! The MORE you LOVE God, THE MORE He will LOVE YOU!!!

You want to be MORE LOVED BY GOD???

Weeeeeeeelllll since I did it last week, I thought HEEEEEY why NOT this week too!!! NOT to sure if this will be an EVERY WEEK IS always GOOD to be THANKFUL!!! :)))
First of all, I am Thankful that we started the week off with Elder Pearson preaching both services!!! Two AMAZING messages that stirred my heart!!! Imparticularly, I was really impacted by his evening message. He was talking about being a witness and reaching the lost, buuuuuut more imparticular, about being LIKE JESUS!!! He gave a really good example of how when he was young people that he had never even met before would know, JUST BY LOOKING at him, that he was his dad's son, because he LOOKED like his dad!!! THEN he was talking about how we need to LOOK LIKE JESUS!!! When people that don't even know us, that have never even met us, they NEED to think, THEY LOOK LIKE GOD'S KIDS!!!
He told one story about a lil orphan boy that a man had been so nice to and given him a dozen donuts, that the lil boy walked over to him and said, "Sir, are YOU GOD!?" He said I don't know about you all, but I've never acted SO MUCH LIKE GOD, that someone ACTUALLY asked, ARE YOU GOD??? That really struck me soooo DEEPLY!!! Can you imagine, being and looking SOOOO MUCH LIKE GOD, that you were ACTUALLY asked, ARE YOU GOD??? To be mistaken for him.....annnnnd NOT to say that in a way that is trying to BE GOD or trying to TAKE THE GLORY FROM GOD...buuuuut in that way that a child can LOOK SOOOOO MUCH like their parent that someone MAY actually think its THE PARENT and NOT the child!!! Really gives me A LOT TO STRIVE FOR!!!
Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeext...I'm thankful that one of my friends bought me a NEW HELLO KITTY FOR MY COLLECTION!!! Yes...the BUNNY Hello Kitty...SOMEBUNNY LOOOOOOVERRRRS ME!!!! Purrrrrrrrr!!!
ADORKABLE!!! YES...that's right, I said, ADORKABLE!!!
Thankful that I got to babysit BABY GIRL!!! I'm pretty sure she's starting to like me now...We were waving to each other during prayer at GCA...she soooooo CUUUUUUTE!!!
I'm thankful that Mustapha came to church on Wednesday!!!
This is one of the Sunday School boys, he got the Holy Ghost and was baptized in Jesus name when he was 12 or 13...came for several years with all the kids and then like many bus kids do he drifted he's in his second year of college...buuuuuut you know, that's the thing with the bus outreach, they may NOT make it as kids....buuuuut THEY NEVERRR FORGET WHAT THEY FELT... Recently, on his own accord he has been contacting me about coming to church again ANNNNND he CAME this Wednesday, WITHOUT ME EVEN BUGGING HIM ABOUT IT!!! YAAAAY THANK YOU JESUS!!!
I'm thankful for KIDS!!! God has blessed me with soooo many kids in my life and I'm greatful for that because They just make life soooooooo much MORE INTERESTING!!!
Thankful that my mom FAITHFULLY reads my blog and saw that I wanted hair accessories annnnnnnd said that she would buy one for me...PURRRRR Mommy poo!!! Thankful that the big sis ALSO said she would buy me hair accessories in exchange for a back massage...BARTERING PEOPLE...Saves money...annnnnnnd you STILL get what you want!!! ;)))
I'm THANKFUL that we had us SOOOOME GOOD OUTREACH TODAY!!! We happened to run into one of Pastor's old classmates...HOW AWESOME IS THAT????!!!!???

BAHAHAHAHAHA!!! (To find the humor in this, you have to get the joke a group of my friends have going that you can read HERE!!!

Sooooooooooo APARENTLY...

There are ACTUALLY people that have MORE time on their hands than ME!!!
Cuz just LOOK at what was invented!!!!
Hands-free cookie dunker could revolutionize snack time

YES, that's a CUP that helps you to dunk your cookie!!!  Magnets placed on either side of the glass support a plastic tray full of cookies submerged in milk. Cookie lovers can keep them in for as long as the desired dunking time. I'm liiiiiike REALLY??? This is an ISSUE for people???? BAHAHAHAHA!!! Read what the inventors are saying...
"We came up with the idea this past October when we were dunking Oreo cookies while watching TV one night," (See what happens when you watch TV??? You can't even dunk a cookie into milk right!!! LOLOL"The next day we started making clay prototypes and then a few weeks later had a couple different 3D printed prototypes made."

As with many genius creations, the Dunkin' Buddy is so simple, one wonders why someone didn't think of it sooner: We both like to dunk chocolate chip cookies and Oreo cookies for about 20 to 30 seconds to where they are soft to eat, but not so soft you can't pick them up without them falling apart in your hand," said Wells. "But Nutter Butter cookies can take well beyond that to soften."
I'm just gonna SKIP the cookie dunkerrrrrrs...Cuz personally, I like dunking MY OWN COOKIES!!!
cookie shots
Annnnnnnnd I have a dear friend named Hanna Banana that makes AMAZING chocolate chip cookies...soooooo come MAY...I say we make these babies!!! Seriousley, how COOL of an idea is just eat your cup!

Soooooooo when I was younger I absolutely HATED my middle name!!! I just thought it was sooooo UGLY!!! Sometimes teachers in school would call me Mary Frances and it would sooooo IRK me!!! I would be thinking, I'm JUST MARY!!! That's IT!!! Then my best friend started calling me JUST FRANCES...Like all the time...just to ANNOY ME...At first it really did, buuuuuut then I just got used to and actually kinda liked it!!!
Then I decided that Mary Frances was like my writing name...I always wrote by Mary Frances and it just kinda stuck for stuff like that. We used to say that that was how we would know if someone actually KNEW ME or if they just read my blog, by if they called me Mary or Mary Frances!!! Soooooooooooo yeah, NOW I LOOOOVE my middle name!!!
I was named NOT after my mom, who's name is Frances, but after my dad's father who is also Francis! Annnnnnnnnnnnd that my friends is the story behind my middle name!!!
It means, a Free Man...or I guess in my case, a FREE WOMAN!!! LOL Weeeeeellll I'm deficnatley a FREE-SPIRITED-WOMAN!!! HAHAHA!!!
 Funny middle name story!!!! This past year at AMA I asked a group of friends, that happened to be all guys, what their middle name was, jus cuz I always find stuff like that interesting to know!!! One of them's made me laugh SOOOO HARD!!! I just wasn't expecting it!!! I mean you think you know EVERYTHING about a person, THEN you ask them their middle name!!! LOLOLOLOl I like could NOT stop laughing!!!! Buuuuuuuut sooooo this is the REALLY funnnnny part, soooooo THEN Bro. Andrew Foster got up and was talking to all the girls and was like,  you girls don't need to be asking these guys for their numbers, then jokingly he says, IN shouldn't EVEN be asking them their MIDDLE NAME!!! I was like, WHAAAAAAAT???? All the guys felt the need to LAUGH AT ME NOW!!! HA! HAHA!!! It was pretty funny!!!! I accused Bro. Andrew of eavesdropping buuuuut he SAYS it was a total conincidence!!!
