Angelic Moments!!!

Sooooooo guess WHAAAAAT??! My friends are here from CALI!!! Soooooooo they pull up and I scream and hug them as soon as I see them and the first thing they say is, MARY YOUR A CITY GIRL!!! We didn't even REALIZE that!!! I'm like, YES!!! They are small town chicas...
SOOOO then the next thing they say is sooooo HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR on the left??? I'm like, I DON'T!!! They're like, OKAAAAAAy sooooo Angel already had an ANGEL MOMENT!!! Marissa was like laughing SOOOO HARD about it!!
Soooooo i'm like okaaaaaaaaaay WHAT HAPPENED!!! So they said that the GPS said,  "your destination is on the left"  and they had stopped in front of a house with a big cactus and Christmas lights.
And they see the door kinda crack open and Angel assumes its me, she rolls her window down and Marissa says she trys to stop her but before she could say, I don't think that's Mary, Angel screams out MAAAAAARY!!!! Annnnd the door flings open and a man says real loud, HUH????
Annnnd then when she sees its a man Angel just naturally assumes annnnnd is about to yell out STUUUUUULTZ!!! (Because Jonathan is our neighbor across the street at MY MOM's, but I don't live with her any more, I live with my sis a few streets over) But then Angel realizes that its an OLDER man so she's like OH wait that's not Stultz, and Marissa says she was laughing so hard tears were streaming down her face...annnnd THEN they realized I was ONE HOUSE OVER!!!
So later on we were telling Stultz our funny story and we're like, we're trying to think of what to call Angels Moments...she's like, they can't just be Classic Angel Moments, cuz that's Mary's, I'm like NO its FIIIIINE, I don't OWN it!!! So then Stultz was like, how about ANGELIC MOMENTS!!! I'm like, OMW THATS SOOOOOOOO PERFECT!!!
Soooooooo yeah between
Classic Mary Moments and
Angelic Moments with Angel...
it should be a cRaZy-FUUUUUUN, INTERESTING WEEK!!! Good thing we have Marissa here to keep things HALF WAY UNDER CONTROL!!! BAHAHAHAHA!!!

Top two of 2014!!!

Of all the things I've written this year, I would have to say that these two are THE ONES that people responded to me the most about...
The Devil's Bait HERE
Where's my daddy? HERE
The last one was probably the hardest one for me to post. Its the most personal and altho i'm an extremely transparent person, this one I just didn't know if I had the guts to post it. Yet I felt so compelled to write it. After publishing it on here, I have NEVER gotten a stronger response from my readers then I did for "Where's My Daddy?" If you haven't already read these top two, I hope that you would take a moment to read them and that they would be a blessing to you!!!!
♥Mary Frances :)
P.S. If you have a favorite post that I have done this year or at any other time, feel free to let me know Maryfranceswriting@gmail.com

A Ginty Christmas!!!

The morning started EARLY at a little after 7 for me, after coffee and MJ opened like a MILLION presents from her mom, we then headed over to MY MOM'S!!!
Where it was present time with the rest of our family!!!
Joseph was soooooooo super excited while we waited for everyone to gather in the living room...Please excuse the TV...its my dad's and my mom would be super appalled that its in the pics!!!
Before we opened gifts, Joseph's mom brought out her guitar and Joseph sang 'Joy To The World' to us!

Our greatest gift!!!

Soooooooooo I wanted to do something different this year that I want to make as a tradition for years to come, especially when I have my own children. Of Family Life Radio, they were having people call in with family Christmas traditions they do and of course everyone was calling in and saying that they read their kids or grandkids the Christmas story from the Bible.
However, this one lady called in and said that every year she wraps the Bible up as a present and has all the kids open the Bible and THEN she reads to them the Christmas story...Annnnnnd I thought I AM GOING TO DO THAT THIS YEAR WITH MY KIDS... Well my nieces and nephew!!!
So I did it this evening with them and it turned out great!!! Even tho they were squirming to open my actual presents I had for them, I told them that this Bible, God's word, is our greatest gift. Then I read them the Christmas story ANNNND before they opened my presents THEY had to tell me who's birthday we are CELEBRATING!!! JESUS!!!
Really, when you think about it, the Bible truly is our GREATEST treasure here on earth! For without it we would not have the knowledge of what Christ did for us. We wouldn't know the gospel, the good news, and God's salvation plan. I plan to keep this tradition going every year. Even tho in years to come, the kids will know what is in the package, its always a good reminder of WHAT A WONDERFUL GIFT we truly have!!!
Then it was time to open MY GIFTS to the kids!!! Soooooo since I like to be the center of attention, I didn't want to wait to give the kids my gifts TOMORROW!!! Because TOMORROW they will be getting EVERYONE else's gifts...annnnnd mine would be lost in the middle...so THIS WAY... for about 12 hours, my presents will be their FAVORITE!!! Hee, hee!!! Yup, that's truly the way I think!!! LOL
I got MJ a Betsyville wristlet purse from Ross, (That's my fav purse brand btw!) I got Joseph two Lego sets, Juliana a baby doll stroller, and Bethany a cute bib and teddy bear...most of the kids stuff I got from yard saling!!! There are these really ritzy houses that have yard sales twice a year...I STOCK UP on gifts from there!!! They lego sets, which are normally around $25-$40 I got brand new, not even opened, for $5!!! The bib I got for Bethany was all fancy prancy, still had the $15 price tag on it, I got it for $1...OH I LOVE RICH PEOPLE  YARD SALES!!! Hee, hee!!!

Gingerbread cRaZy aWsOmEnEsS!!

The kids had SOOOO MUCH funnnnnn making these they really got into it!!!
Some of them even made kit kat picket fences! Sleds with candy kids, reeses church bells, blue-icing ponds, annnnnd chocolate-mud puddle lakes!!!
One of the girls, Shams, kept asking me for more graham crackers for her roof...after like the 5th EXTRA cracker i'm like, WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON WITH YOUR ROOF??? You building a mansion or something?!?!?! She's like NO, its soooo GOOOOD, I KEEP EATING IT!!! 
This girl Brianna was SOOOO PROUD of her skirt she wore!!! She's like, MARY look, I'm wearing a LOOOOOONG SKIRT...LIKE YOU!!! Isn't it amazing how they pick up on something that I have NEVERRRR told them!!! She only comes on Wednesday nights for Bible classes, buuuut every time she sees me...she sees a LOOOONG SKIRT!!! Its such an honor and thrill to me when they want to model HOLINESS..there is NOTHING like THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS!!! 
This girl right here that I'm hugging, her name is MARY, soooo this is a Mary-Mary picture!!! So anywayz, I go to pick up one of the younger girls for church, and she's like, Oh church! Can I go! So i'm like, YEAH! I'm thinkin she looks familiar but I can't figure out..WHO she is...So she runs into the other room for her shoes and I ask the lil girls mom, Who is that? She's like oh thats my cousin. I'm like whats her name, she says, Mary!
I'm like, OH MARY!!! All of the sudden it clicks...this girl came to church ONE TIME when she was a really young on a Sunday evening service. We had AWESOME church and her heart was so tender, she was so broken and tender and got THE HOLY GHOST!!! I had asked the other girls that she came with at that time where she lived and they all said she was just visiting, and she lived faraway, no one had her parents number and the next time I went to the apartments she was gone back home and I've never heard anything TIL this past Wednesday!!!
Sooooo I'm like soooo EXCITED now! i'm like, HEY MARY!!! You came to church with me ONE TIME a LOOOOOOONG time ago right?! She was like yelling back from the other room! YES! I'm like, and YOU GOT THE HOLY GHOST RIGHT?! She's like YES!!! I'm like, AND YOU REMEMBER GETTING THE HOLY GHOST?! She's like YES!!! 
I'm telling you guys, our efforts for reaching the lost are NEVER IN VAIN!!! These kids NEVERRR FORGET that experiance and even tho you may not see the results for YEARS TO COME...your planting a seed and in DUE SEASON you WILL REAP A HARVEST!!! When she came to church, before class, she was totally worshipping and pray during the song service!!! I'm believing God to do GREAT THINGS!!! Keep MARY in your prayers!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

Happy Christmas Sunday EVERYONE!!!
 I was asked recently what my favorite Christmas song was and on the spot I couldn't think of which one, buuuuuut this song came on the radio the other day and I said AWWWWW that's it...JOY TO THE WORLD!!! "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." (Luke 2:10) Jesus is OUR JOY...Think about it this evening at church...We've got a reason to shout...JOY HAS COME!!!
Jesus IS MY JOY!!!

BE Apostolic!!!

Sooooooooo a couple of Sundays ago, I was driving through Dutch Brothers before church, remember I told you all about them, they are KNOWN for their employees acting WEIRD...I think they probabley give a drug test and IF YOU GET POSITIVE they hire you!!! BAHAHAHA!!! ANYWAYZ, when I get to the window to pay the girl starts FREAKING OUT over my hair!!!
OH MY GOODNESS!!! your hair looks sooooooooooo BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm like oh THANK YOU!!! She's like, did you go to beauty college to learn how to do that?!?!? (I'm thinking, Really??? BEAUTY COLLEGE??? Just to learn how to do my hair...Like I would everrrr need THAT...ITS CALLED BIBLE COLLEGE MA'AM!!! All you gotta do is read the word of God to learn THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS!!!) I'm just like, oh no ma'am, its actually super easy to do, you just have to practice a little bit and you'll get good at it...THAT and a can of Aussie Freeze HAIR SPRAY!!!
She's just like WOW, I'm just in awe of your hair, I can hardly even do a ponytail in my hair...Soooooo I chatted it up with her till my drink was ready, told her about church etc...then when I said by she was like, I like your hair! ITS AMAZING!!! I don't think I could ever get mine like that!!!  I was thinking, YOU COULD if you got in church!!! Its just part of being PENTECOSTAL!!!
You just gotta...

It takes 37 hours...

Soooo after Thanksgiving, I was talking to a male friend, its important that I say male, BECAUSE A FEMALE would NEVERRR say this!!! BAHAHA!!! So its the day after Thanksgiving and I'm BRAGGING to my kind-hearted REALIST friend that I did NOT even gain ANY WEIGHT after Thanksgiving.
After I tell him, I'm like waiting for praise and applause from him. Without blinking an eye he says, "well you know, it actually takes at least 37 hours for the body to fully digest food. So there still may be a weight gain coming." I'm like, WHAAAAT???  UGH, you are SUCH a party pooper!!! He's like, well I'm just warning you, I don't want you to get all HYPED up and then be let down. I'm like, yeah, yeah, WHATEVERRR!!!
Howeverrrr come the next morning when I weighed myself...
Sure enough I had gained two pounds!!!

I was like, okaaaaaaaaaay I hate to have to say it buuuuuuut, You were RIGHT!!! And he said, weeeeeellll I'm ALWAYS right, but about WHAT this time? I'm like,  Yeah, yeah, WHATEVERRRRR!!! I mean really, it made sense that I would gain...you over eat and sooner or later YOU GAIN...its a fact of life!!!
Buuuuuut as soon as I stepped on that scale in the morning and I saw that I had INDEED gained weight, it provoked my thoughts and immediately got me to thinking in spiritual terms. THE LAW OF THE HARVEST...
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Galations 6:7)
God WILL NOT BE MOCKED...the Bible is literally saying that your making a mockery of God to think that you will NOT REAP WHAT YOU HAVE SOWN!!! "For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." (Galations 6:8)
The results are not always immediate, BUT THEY WILL COME!!! You may look at yourself or another person and think, see, they didn't what was right or well I did it anyways even though I was told not too, buuuuut look at me, I'm FINE! Life is GREAT! God is GOOD! Yes HE IS, buuuuuut do not be fooled, GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED, the results of your choices may not be immediate, buuuuuuut THEY WILL COME!!!
The flip side of the coin is that if you sow in the spirit, you will reap a spiritual harvest!!! "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." (Galations 6:9) Once again, God will NOT be mocked, if you don't believe God will bless you for doing THE RIGHT thing, you too are making a mockery of God. Your blessings WILL COME...JUST WAIT!!!
Good seeds or bad seeds...in due season your harvest will come!! Its not always immediate results...Sometimes it takes 37 hours...37 days...37 weeks...37 months...and perhaps maybe even 37 years...buuuuuuuuut it WILL COME!
 You will reap what you sow!!!
