All I need!!

I read this and started laughing because I have a funny little story that happened with me and a can of Dr. Pepper. Sooooooo one afternoon a few years ago, I was at the churching backing these little mini chocolate donuts for something that I was going on at the church, I can't remember exactly what. Anywayz, I had all of my ingredients with me and I'm putting everything in the mixing bowl and as I'm reading the recipe, I actually realized that I didn't have any milk with me. I'm thinking like, GO TO THE STORE to BUY MILK??? "AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!!!" hmmmmm...WHAT can I do to make up for the milk???
Soooooooooooo I open the fridge and low and behold I see that there is cans of soda in the fridge that the youth are selling...PERFECT!!! I grab a can of Dr. Pepper, measure the liquid amount that is calling for milk, and pour the Dr. Pepper right into my chocolate donut mixture!!! I mix it up and BAM, it worked out perfectly I now bake them and then ice them!!!
So later on when everyone is eating my lil donuts and saying how good they were, I was nonchalantly like, Oh good, I didn't have any milk so I just substituted Dr. Pepper instead!!! Everyone was like, WHAAAAAAAAAAT??? The recipe called for MILK and you substituted it for DR. PEPPER??? I was like yeah! And everyone just started laughing...ONLY you would go from MILK to Dr. Pepper...I just shrugged my shoulders, It makes perfect sense to me...Annnnd to be honest, IT STILL DOES!!! Sometimes you just gotta USE WHATCHA GOT!!! Remember that folks if your ever out of milk...No need to waste time going to the store!!! It's true people, ALL YOU NEED IS A LITTLE DR. PEPPER AND A WHOLE LOT OF JESUS!!! Hee, hee!!! ;)))

And she was like, no! I'm like, we even had you creamated! She's like, Uh huh! That's what they want you to think so they can get your money!!!! Ask them what the ashes REALLY are!!! She's all, you know what YOU SHOULD DO, is take those "ASHES" you paid for and tell them you want a REFUND!!!
Seriousley, that is sooooooo a MOMMISH dream!!! She was ALWAYS having me return stuff to the store for, even toilet paper once, she was like, Mary, I was looking at the receipt that is THE MOST EXPENSIVE toilet paper, return it!!!  AHAHAHA!!! I'm sure IF it were possible, my mom WOULD have me get a refund on her creamation!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! That was a funny dream!!! I LOOOOOOVE MY MOM!!!

No more prayers...

A few weeks ago I was praying and when it got time to pray for my family members, I automatically started to pray for my mom...Then I was like, Oh yeah, I don't need to pray for anymore and I started feeling REALLY SAD!!! Buuuuut THEN it hit me!!!! I DON'T NEED TO PRAY FOR HER ANYMORE!!! I remember all the times we would pray together when she was sick, buuuuuut NOW, She doesn't need my prayers!!! She's made it to the goal that we are all  praying and striving for...HEAVEN!!! She'll never hurt or be sad or lonely again! She'll never make another mistake, she'll never sin, she'll never be sick, she doesn't have to worry about falling, or not walking, or having a bad attitude or anything...NO MORE PRAYERS...SHE DOESN'T NEED THEM for NOW she is with THE ONE WE PRAY TOO!!!

"...the foolishness of God..."

I was talking to one of my friends one time, and we were discussing how sometimes we just can't understand God. We don't get WHY he does things a certain way or WHY he allows certain things to happen. We just have to trust him and know that he is looking out for us...And I started off in the discussion pretty theological "...the foolishness of God is wiser than men..."
(1 Corinthians 1:25)
I'm like you know, we just don't understand the way God works...Sometimes he's JUST HARD TO FIGURE OUT!!! Then without thinking about it, it just came to me, I'm like, buuuuuuuuuut THEN AGAIN that makes PERFECT SENSE...
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Then I seriously just cracked myself up!!! For like five minutes straight!!! I laughed and laughed and laughed about that!!! I even patted myself on the back! Good one Mary! GOOD ONE!!!
Heeeeeey men just take it as a compliment if we can't figure you guys out...its a GODLY TRAIT!!! Annnnnnnd if we CAN figure you out...that probably means your TOO MUCH LIKE US!!! Go gargle some gravel!!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!
♥Mary Frances :)
And NO i'm NOT confused about THE DOCTRINE!!! I know that God is a spirit, buuuuut Jesus, who IS GOD, is also a man! Furthermore, every time God is referred to in the Bible, it is ALWAYS in a male connotation...NEVER FEMALE!!!

When Mary opens her Bible...

Sooooooo as a child at my church there was a boy in our church that was always extremely hyper and the teenage boys in the church would refer to him as, "SUGAR!" Annnnnnnnd one day they were all joking around, like they were soooooo COOL, that when MOST people open their Bible's, papers fall out, but when this boy opens his Bible, SUGAR FALLS OUT!!! And then they would all laugh like they were so hilariously funny!
Well the other day I was reading my Bible at a coffee shop and when I got up to leave, I had forgotten my Bible and I accidentally dropped it all over the floor of the coffee shop!!! Buuuuuut the really hilarious thing to me, was that amongst the papers, bookmarks, Bible studies, notes and highlighters, there was ALL THIS GLITTER that fell out...I was like, WHAT IN THE WORLD!!!
And it reminded me of that story, I was like, Okaaaaaaaaaay soooooo...

God's a legalist!!! LOL

I was just thinking about ANOTHER HILARIOUS story with my mom. So the last two years of my mom's life she was bed ridden so this left her A LOT free time. One of the things she did to keep herself from being sooooo bored was joined FACEBOOK!!! For someone that is as opinionated and unafraid to speak her mind as my mother, this was BAD.IDEA!!! AHAHAHA!!!
Well one day she was on the Focus On The Family page and they posted something that she didn't agree with concerning standards of holiness, SOOOO SHE SPOKE HER MIND!!! My mom very quickly told them EXACTLEY WHAT THE BIBLE had to say on the matter. Weeeeeellll of course most people did NOT like hearing this, even tho it was CLEARLY backed up with the Bible.
Sooooooooo people start commenting back at my mom, saying stuff like, she was being judgemental, that's all legalism and your a legalist, blah, blah, blah!!! Without missing a beat, totally undaunted by their accusations, my wrote back and says,
"Well, if I'M A LEGALIST,
Then I guess God is too,
I sooooooo LOVE MY MOM!!! She's AWESOME!!! Just sooooo AWESOME!!!

Fun weekend!!!

This past Friday, I had the ONCE IN A LIFE TIME opportunity to meet THE VOICES OF CONNIE AND EUGENE from Adverture's in Odyssey!!!
My favorite part was when they did a scene from the episode, "A license to drive" It was weird because at first I was like, I don't think it really sounds like them, but then when you close your eyes and didn't look at the voice actors, it sounded JUST LIKE THEM!!! So I got a pic with them but its on someone else's camera so HOPEFULLY i'll see it eventually!!! LOL I have to add this to my list of great things accomplished, 1. Rode an elephant 2. Got a pic with the Oscar Meyer Hot dog truck 3. Got a pic with the Hello Kitty Café Van 4. Met the voices of CONNIE AND  EUGENE!!!
Then today we went to the Peach Festival at Schenpf's farm...which was FUN buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut waaaaaaaaay over crowded!!! If we hadn't already driven an hour out there we probably would have turned around and left buuuuut we were in it for the long haul and made the best of it!!!

Peach pie, peach pancakes, peach ice cream, peach taffy,
peach picking...YUMMMM!!!
You shoulda seen HOW MANY PEACHES people were buying...like boxes and boxes...I was like, Ummmmm...I don't have any grocery ads on me but I'm pretty sure they're cheaper than $3 a pound at the store..."But that ain't none of my business!!! AHAHAHA!!!
I ate one, it was GOOD!!! Tasted just like a juicy PEACH!!! :)))
By the time we left at 11;30ish, there were cars parked miles outside of the farm and people were walking several miles in the scalding AZ heat, I was like okaaaaaaaaaay it was good food buuuut NOT THAT GOOD!!! Aparently, we don't got a whole lot going on here in Arizona, buuuuuuuut that Ain't nona my business!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!

Deedee's baptism!!!

This past Wednesday, there was a very special person to me that got baptized...DEEDEE!!! I've literally known Deedee since she was born! I remember holding her when she was a new born and freaking out because her hair was so soft, her family was laughing at me!!!
THEN she started going to church with me as soon as she was potty trained...
She's always been a favorite of mine!!! :)))
Deedee got the Holy Ghost in November and has prayed back through several times since then!!! Weeeeeeeelllll this past Wednesday, she was baptized in Jesus name! She was baptized as an infant, but we did a Bible study together on baptism and she said she wanted to be re-baptized according to how the Bible says we should be baptized...IN JESUS NAME...Because only the name of Jesus has the power to wash away our sins, because JESUS died for us!
That awkward moment when you don't know your last name during baptism!!!LOL after some discussion and trying to figure it out, since she has a different last name then her mom, a different last name then her sister, Pastor finally said, WELL God KNOWS Deedee's LAST NAME!!! LOL
This was my favorite part, when Pastor laid hands on her to pray or her before he baptized her, Deedee's lil sister Christina laid hands on her too and started praying, it was the sweetest, cutest thing ever!!! They love each other so much and Deedee wanted to wait to be baptized til her little sister was there to see it!! And then you just have to know Christina's personality, she is so IN CHARGE a total little mamma!!! She's ADORABLE!!!
Annnnnnd praise The Lord, 
there's a NEW NAME
Annnnnnnnnnnnnd it's DEEDEE'S!!!

A word from The Lord...

Sooooooooo the other night I'm laying there in my bed trying to fall asleep but I can't! I read my Bible, read a chapter in my book and see that its getting later and later so I try to go to sleep again, but much to my dismay, I can't fall asleep!!! I don't understand, its after 1 AM, I got up at 6 AM and didn't even drink any coffee, no nap, WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME??? WHY AM I NOT TIRED???
 After another 45 minutes of just laying there I thought, WEEEEEEELLLL, maybe God wants me to pray or something. I'm like God is that what your doing, your wanting me to go pray??? I'm thinking, this is like what the elders talk about, when God wakes you up in the middle of the night to go pray! Or like when God woke up Samuel in the middle of the night and called him by name. I'm like God, WHAT IS IT??? What do you have to say Lord??? Annnnnnd then it happened, I total AHA moment, God spoke to me, and suddenly I understood WHY He was keeping me up like this. He said...
MARY!!! It's really NOT a good idea FOR YOU to be drinking Mountain Dews after 3:30 in the afternoon!!!

 Yes, that's a very good thought Lord,
 I'll remember this AHA MOMENT in the future!!!

To be like JESUS...

One day, while in the hospital during my mom's last few weeks of life, I had a very thought provoking thing go through my mind. During this time, I had gotten used to helping take care of my mom in whatever way I possibly could...
Anything from just getting her something that she couldn't reach, brushing her hair and sometimes sponge bathing. Now you have to understand, I'm NOT exactly the "Nurse" type of person, I'm known for gagging at just about anything to with the human body. But this was my mom whom I love dearly and by this time I'd gotten used to it, and you would be surprised at the grace God will give you to do something that you never planned on or saw yourself doing.
So one night, before going to sleep, I was rubbing lotion on my mom's feet and I thought to myself, I'm being like Jesus!!! WOW! So this is what its like to be a servant, to be Christ like. And just when I was really starting to feel good about my spirit of servitude,  God put another thought in my mind...
No, not quite Mary,
 because IF you were like ME,
you'd be doing this for your enemy.
Think about it, it's one thing to be a servant to someone that you love and adore, but it's a completely different thing to be able to be a servant to a stranger, to someone that has done you wrong, to your enemy,  to someone that despises you, yet, Jesus was willing to do that for us.
Just when we think we're getting it, God shows us HOW FAR we really are from being like Him. And yet, it's the desire of my heart, TO BE LIKE HIM!!! Although I know I am human, I know that I'll never reach perfection, I'll never be able to be  completely like Him, until I breath my last breath, I will continue striving more and more, TO BE LIKE HIM!!!
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." (Philippians 2:5-7)

♪♫To be like Jesus ♪To be like Jesus♫All I ask - to be like Him♪♪All through life's journey♪♫From earth to glory♫♫All I ask - to be like Him.♫♫♫

Thank you mom...

Happy Mother's day to my beautiful, beautiful mom!!! This is my favorite picture of you, you were never fancy, just simple, but beautiful!

Mommy, I miss you so much! Words can't express it, there is a hole in my heart that will forever belong to you! You were my best friend, my protector, my teacher, my cheerleader, my encourager, my hero!!!
Lets not forget, MY BIGGEST FAN!!!
In your eyes, no one could write better than your daughter. I remember you arguing with someone that I was a better writer than some well known, established writer in Pentecost..."I don't care WHO they are or what their last name is, that doesn't make them a better writer than you!" WOW MOM, WOW!!! LOL The ONLY THING you NEVER BELIEVED IN ME FOR WAS MY DRIVING...and now look at me Mom, four years into driving and I have NO IDEA WHY YOU WERE SOOOO WORRIED ABOUT IT!!!;)))
Mom, I remember how you would NEVERRRR put any Christian bumper stickers on your car, BECAUSE, you didn't want to be a bad witness for Jesus when you gave other drivers THE LOSER SIGN for their bad driving skills!!!! Only YOU MOM, ONLY YOU!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!
Mom, I remember when someone threw a rock through our brother's car window, you asked the police if they could dust the rock they threw the window, for fingerprints and when they said no, you said, WELL THEY COULD IN THE HARDY BOYS!!!
Its weird how we are so different, yet in some ways so alike...You were always simple in your dress, we all know I love fancy, yet I remember when you told me that the flowers I always wear in my hair I got from you, you used to do the same thing! We are both out going, yet I could never take charge of a large group like you could, Ahem, for example, a few weeks ago they left me for ten minutes with the Bible class to play a game with the kids, it was OUT OF CONTROL MOM, the game turned into a mosh pit, I couldn't scream loud enough to get control of them, yet all you had to do was those BUG EYES, We both knew we were all that and a bag of chips, We're both creative but in completely different ways, I cant draw a decent looking stick figure, you could turn an oatmeal box into a masterpiece of art, mine just looks like an OATMEAL BOX, my creativity is through stories and words and cute clothes, hee, hee!!!
I remember all the family trips you took us on growing up, you scrimped and saved and took us everywhere you could...
And look at you mom, your kidneys were failing you and you still died with only a few gray hairs and no wrinkles, your so beautiful...
ANNNNNNNNNNNNNND of course we all know the worlds greatest cook!!!

Yes, REALLY, all that food at one big family dinner...WOW!!!

We all miss you SOOOOOOOO MUCH MOM!!! Thank you for everything you taught me, thank you for everything you sacrificed, thank you for telling me about Jesus!!! Thank you for instilling in me the value, the worth, the treasure of motherhood, because of YOU, its still my greatest dream in this life to achieve motherhood!!! I love you mom, I LOVE YOU!!! Purrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!

Only at WALMART!!!!

Soooooooo today I went to get the oil changed on my car at Walmart, and when I was getting out of my car and handing the mechanic dude my keys he was like, Well you look really spiffy, are you going somewhere special this evening??? I was sooooooooo shocked to hear him say that I didn't know what to say, I actually started stuttering all over myself!!
It wasn't because I thought he was super cute or anything like that, it was because I was dressed in COMPLETELY CASUAL CLOTHES!!! I just didn't know what to say, I mean, I put on clothes, brushed my hair and was on my way!!!
Then I was like, WEEEEEEELLLL on second thought, THIS IS WALMART, I supposed the fact that I'm ACTUALLY DRESSED and not still in my pajamas...
 IS looking pretty spiffy!!!

Mind Reigns!!!

I was talking to one of my friends the other day and they were telling me that they like to listen to classic music sometimes while they're driving. I was like, Oh really, its kind of boring to listen to. I'm like, you know like, I'm just not into all those symphony and orchestra things!!! So my friend said something like, but that's like beautiful music!!! I'm like, Yeah buuuuuuuuut theres like, NO WORDS!!! My friend was like, EXACTLEY! That's WHY I like it so much, there are no words and it just clears out your mind!!! I was like, OOOOOOOH, I see what your saying, buuuuuuuuuuuuut, you have to understand that WITH ME...
They were like, OH yeah, that's true with you!!! I'm like, yeah, IF ANYTHING, songs and stories playing at least DIRECT my thoughts, they're kind of like the reins on my mind that keeps it from wandering off to far!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
