Even in my sleep...

Sooooooooo the other day I'm having this dream, that my sister and I are at Dillard's, shopping at one of their big sales. Well my sister goes to pay for her $2 item and the cashier says to my sister, "that'll be $6!" And my sister says, well it's marked $2  and the lady says, well yeeeesss, buuuuut we're adding on an automatic $3 fee for the big sale today.
Soooooooooo my sister is like, well that makes NO SENSE Forget it I dont want it! And the lady says, it's too late, you can't leave the store without paying the $3 fee, plus the other two for the product EVEN if you don't want it now because someone else COULD'VE already bought it by now. 
Soooooooooo they're arguing back and forth, the cashier is suggesting she just pay the $6 DOLLARS, the place is packed out with crazy shoppers, (Btw: I wasn't buying anything, sooooo it REALLY WAS a dream!!!;) Sooooooooooo just as security was about to be called on my sister, I wake up...
Annnnnnnnnnd the first thing I think is WAIT, $2 plus $3 isn't $6, IT'S FIIIIIIIIIIVVVVEEE DOLLARS!!!!Then I was liiiiiiiike OMW....
Sorry, I havn't accomplished sleeping selfies-YET! Still working on that!!! ;)

Happy Brain-boosting Wednesday!!!

Sooooooo s few years ago, before Thanksgiving, buuuuuut after Halloween, my little nephew O was talking to me and he started on his own accord saying that Halloween was YUCKY!!! My sister said she never said anything to him but when they would go to the store and he would see the Halloween stuff he would say, ewwwwww! I don't like it,  HALLOWEEN IS YUCKY!!! Which, in case you didn't know, it IS indeed YUCKY!!!
Well one day when I was getting him ready for school in the morning, I asked him, Odin, do we celebrate Halloween?! He said, NOOOO!!! He shakes his little head, we don't celebrate Halloween! Halloween is YUCKY!!! Then he points to our fall pumpkins on the kitchen table says, 
Isn't that the cutest thing everrrr!!! 

Here's your middle-of-the-week brain booster!!!


"Did you know???..."

Thanksgiving: Remembering to GIVE THANKS, 
                      for all that JESUS HAS GIVEN!!! (Mary's definition;)

"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)

"Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God." (2 Corinthians 9:11)

Would you rather??? Bible edition!!!!

I read this one and I was liiiiiike I KNOOOOOOW the right answer I should be saying is that I would rather sit at his feet, buuuuuuut at the same time I’m going to have to say, COOK HIM A MEAL!!!
I mean think about it, IF JESUS complimented me on my cooking
I would NEVERRRR SHUT UP ABOUT IF!!!           
      Liiiiiiiike neverrrrrrrrr!!!
I am completely confident that he would LOVE MY COOKING!!! AND even if he just thanked me for the meal, without a compliment, because he would want to keep me humble, I would say, "oh your welcome Jesus!!! Did you like it???? and if WHEN he said YES!!!! That would be ENOUGH to neverrrrrrrr SHUT ME UP!!!!

A miracle on Hayden and Osborn!!!!

You guys, a miracle happened before church ⛪️ today in the church kitchen, ACTUALLY two miracles!!!! 
1. There was a fire 🔥 in the kitchen
did NOT start it!!!! 😅 😇 
2. Instead of freaking out, I ACTUALLY HELPED put it out!!!
Soooooooo what happened was today we had our Thanksgiving feast at church and I got there early to bring MJ to choir practice. I was in the foyer when I smelled a very familiar smell of smoke. 
I ran in the kitchen and one of the sisters was frantically trying to put out a 🔥 fire that had started when no one was in there… a heat warmer thingy for the food must’ve sparked and caught the table cloth on fire and it started spreading crazy fast!!!
I started filling bowls with water and throwing it on the fire and sister Bishop yelled into the church there was a fire and everyone came running and we got it outbuuuuuuuut there was a Huge mess and smoke!!!
I was thinking in my head, everyone probably thinks I started this and I wanted to say I DIDNT DO IT this time!!! And everyone is just standing there awkwardly and Sister Abbott breaks the silence with…
Well, there was a fire, annnnnnnd MARY DIDNT START IT!! And then we all busted up laughing!!! I was liiiiiike I’ve been wanting to say that!!!!!!!!!
I was talking my head off to EVERYONE, liiiiiike I knoooooow everyone was thinking I started it!!! And the guys were like, that’s EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT!!!! We see smoke and Nary running back forth like crazy!!!!
Annnnnnnd everyone was thinking, 
That’s life when you go to church ⛪️ with MARY!!! 😇

Leukemia Awareness Walk!

Like my hoody???

White is for survivors, red is in support of someone 

My brother walked on the BMT floor of the hospital with his wife and joined us on FaceTime, I walked him up with his white lantern with the rest of the survivors!!!

This little girl is a Leukemia survivor!

It was very inspiring and uplifting to join so many people that had something in common and walk together in support of those fighting blood 🩸 cancer!!!!

Guess my #1 character trait!!! one of my friends gave me this link for a FREE character strength test… I looooooove stuff like this!!!!
Soooooooo I took it aaaaaaaand guess what my #1 character strength is??? 
Are you guessing????
I honestly was NOT surprised!! I know I’m a loverrrr!! Loving comes so easily and naturally for me and many people have told me before that I’m a very loving 🥰 person!!!! WHEN I love someone, it’s whole heartedly and with everything… I’m not a mediocre lover!!! That’s why I’m a kid magnet… they know where the teddy bear 🧸 is!!!  Put me in an orphanage in the Philippines for two hours and I’m attached to them just like that!!! My brother was liiiiiike how can you and that girl be attached in two hours??? I’m liiiiiike SHE NEEDS ME!!!  I could be her mommy!!! 

#2 character strength is humor… and weeeeeeelll… I think we ALL KNOW THAT ALREADY!!!! 

My biggest character weakness is UH… prudence!!! That means basically thinking things through before making a decision or speaking or taking a risk…and then regretting it later on… only thing is that I usually neverrrrrr really regret it either… I’m just liiiike weeeeeeeeeellll that was awkward… OH WELL!!! I think we can just say I’m a little cRaZy… instead of NOT prudent!!!
I think I can be summed up as, 
loving 🥰, hilarious 
                    aaaaaaannnnnd cRaZy 😜!!!!
What do you think 🤔????

Possible new diet plan!!!

Soooooooo my niece Bethany was telling me WHY she couldn’t eat her uncrustable her mom left her for lunch today!!!
She said it was because one time she was eating a PBJ PEANUT 🥜 BUTTER AND JELLY sandwich 🥪 and the jelly came squirting out and got on her skirt!!! So now she just doesn’t eat them anymore!!!

You know you’re picky when…

You knoooooow you're picky when…
True story…My brother’s kids!!!! lol 😝

SOOOOOOOOOOO I discovered this really, really, REALLY cool organization site called 

Basically, this website says that there are four basic ways of organizing and once you discover the way you think, it will help you SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH to becoming organized. I took this test awhile ago and my results were this...


Butterflies are visual organizers who can easily forget about items when they are stored out-of-sight. They also struggle to maintain really detailed organizing systems and prefer fewer and larger categories when sorting their things. Love visual abundance and organizational simplicity. You are a really visual person and for you, it’s out-of-sight, out-of-mind. You need visual, but fast and easy systems, like clear or wire bins and baskets and lots of hooks. 

Butterfly Traits

A Butterfly is a very visual person and likes to see all their belongings for fear of “Out of Sight, Out of Mind”.

You are probably a Butterfly if you have clothing on top of your dresser and on the floor, but your closet and drawers are practically empty (except for those items you don’t use or love).

Butterflies prefer to have their items visible and displayed, rather than hidden in drawers and behind closed doors. Butterflies are often overwhelmed with the idea of organizing because they have “failed” in the past with traditional organizing solutions that are tailored for people who prefer to “hide” their belongings. A Butterfly needs easy, fast Macro-Organizing solutions that are visible and/or clearly labeled.


This is sooooooo ME ------------>Open shelving works well for you! Take advantage of vertical space and get stuff off your floor. You NEED open shelving in your home, and a lot of it. Hooks are a Butterflies best friend! Hang hooks in your entrance way, inside your closet and on the back of doors! 


Appreciation for BEAUTY- this is sooooooooo true!!! Did you know this is an ACTUAL Values trait in certain people??? I had a guy friend once that I took this values quiz with, maybe i'll find that and post it in the future, and my appreciation for beauty was so high on the list and his was literally LAST on his list! I may or may NOT have told him that I knew that was going to be low because if it had been HIGH on his list he would have married me a looooooooooooong time ago...aahahahahhahahhaaaaa!!!  okaaaaaaaaay sooooo really though this is not just talking about physical beauty. It's like being mesmerized by nature, flowers, and sunsets and mountains. this may sound trivial, buuuuuuuut for me, everything I use ALL THE TIME, has to be cuuuuuuuut or pretty!!! It sounds dumb, buuuuuuuuut I just can't drink from a boring cup ALL DAY LONG!!! I still dress cute to go hiking! I can't just have a PLAIN notebook! 

Berenstein Bears!!!
As a kid, my room was ALWAYS a mess!!! With five kids staying in ONE ROOM, it was pretty much and impossibility to be organized!!! I remember as a kid reading this book and totally relating to the bears big O MESS!!! 
Then the bears would clean their room and their parents helped them to make everything neat and all their toys were hung up and on display and in labeled boxes....I thought that was soooooo COOL!!!! I would just STARE and STARE!!! and think I would LOOOOOOOOOOOVE to have a room organized like theirs!!!!
Looking back, I realize now, that the reason why i liked their clean room the way it was is because I'm a BUTTERFLY ORGANIZER!!! It was visually appealing to me!!! 

Berestien Besrs or whaaaaat???
Things that have helped me organize
1. CLEAR OUT!!! 
2. Pick up after myself
3. Make my bed every morning.

5. Hooks, bins, shelves

A hanging place for all my 5k run medals!!!
6. Routine- just keep some what of a routine of doing things… well I Don’t really know what I’m trying to say… I’d take it out buuuuuuut then I’d have to re-number everything else and ain’t nobody got time for that!!!😂😂
7. Vanity table
I just sit here and do my skin care every morning and night
And I do my hair here, it makes easier to have all this stuff 
In one place and in a routine!!!

8. Planning outfits ahead- laying everything out the night before for the next day
OBVIOUSLEY, there are extremely organized people that would still NOT think I'm organized and yes I still struggle with organization, buuuuuuuuuut IF YOU KNEW the younger me, you would be VERY IMPRESSED!!! I still have extreme difficulty when traveling and you can count on my stuff being EVERYWHERE in the hotel room, usually a trail of clothes…because I just don't know how to be organized out of my own comfort space!!! 
HAHAHA!!!! Gotta add one of these in!!! LOL Sooooo one of the young people asked this when we were playing would you rather singles edition! Would you rather marry someone that was overly messy OR overly organized??? I pick overly organized, BECAUSE I struggle with organization, it would overwhelm me to marry someone that was less organized than me because I would have NO CLUE how to keep them organized!!! I get really stressed out with a mess because I just don't know where or how to get started with cleaning up. Even at a party or something at church, I want to HELP, but I need a DIRECT JOB!!! Wash the dishes or clean the toilets-I would rather do than putting everything back the way it was or is supposed to be. 
Soooooo my preference would be someone MORE ORGANIZED that can help or teach me to be more organized or just organize me...whateverrrr....Idk how much I WOULD ANNOY an extremely organized person!!! BAHAHHAHAAAA!!! At the same time, two extremely organized people, may get annoyed when they don't organize the same if they want it a SPECIFIC WAY and the other one wants it a SPECIFIC WAY thats different...whereas someone like me would be like, sure do whatever you want, that sounds GREAT!!!!
 I think my main thing is that IF you want to do something, don't give me a play by I had a friend that would let me KNOW EVERYTIME she picked up after me at a conference...I'm liiiiiiike I literally DO NOT CARE that you just put my brush back with my stuff for the millionth time today!!! If you want to put something of mine away, JUST DO IT!!! And then when I can't find it, I'll ask you where it is since your so organized anyways!!! AHAHAHAA! Also, just like, hey Mary you know what may help you a lot with staying more organized... and then teach it to me. I don't mind at all receiving help or being shown how to do something, I'm a VERY TEACHABLE PERSON!!!

Happy Brain-boosting Wednesday!!!

Sooooooo I meant to do this little series back in May buuuuut then I forgot… soooooo I’m reposting the the first one today and will finish it for the next few Wednesdays!!!! 

Here's your 
Random thought from Monday: Well that actual thought that was going to be a PS on Monday's is actually at the end of this post...cuz I was going to have to explain ALL your about to read to give that ONE last thought!!! Hee, hee!!!! Everyone thinks that the Daniel Fast is a veggies diet buuuuuuuuut if you really want to be accurate, the Bible says he ate water and pulse...WAAAAAIIIIT....
WHAT IS PULSE???????????????
"Did you know???..."

 and I looked up pulse and its basically like beans...
According to Webster's dictionary a pulse plant is: the edible seeds of various crops (such as peas, beans, or lentils) of the legume familyalso a plant yielding pulseAccording to the KJV Bible Dictionary Pulse is: Bean or seed used for food.

"Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us PULSE to eat, and water to drink. Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants." Daniel 1:11-13 )

There are ACTUALLY other Bible versions that say that pulse means vegetables or roots soooo that must be where most people decide to base the Daniel fast off of...of course because its EASIER, buuuuuuuuuuut Webster annnnnnnnnnnd THE KJV Bible dictionary are in a agreement for the definition of PULSE!!! Jus sayin!!! ;)
Have you everrrr done the Daniel Fast and actually GAINED weight??? Your not alone!!! I thought I was THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WHOLE WORLD to do this buuuuuuuuuuuuuut a brother at my church was telling me once that he had gained weight during the Daniel Fast!!!! I was liiiiiike whaaaaaat???? ME TOO!!! He was like, yeah, I found out that four baked potatoes in one day are still TOO MANY!!!! I was liiiiiiiiiike, weeeeeeeeeeeeelllll I FOUND OUT that 1 jar of unsalted, raw almond STILL TOO MANY...even withOUT the salt and raw!!! Who'da known such a thang???? BAHAHAHAHAAA!!!! 
sooooo IF you really want to accurately do the Daniel Fast, eat nothing buuuuuuut beans for 21 days... you will probably FOR SURE lose may have a few other issues 💨...buuuuuuuut weight loss won't be one of them!!! Hee, hee!!! ;)

"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)

♥Mary Frances :)
MONDAY'S THOUGHT: annnnnnnd that leaves me with ONE LAST THOUGHT, that gave me another thought, ...MAYBE the PULSE Daniel was eating was coffee beans and he was  drinking lots of know beans and water =COFFEE....thats WHY he had sooooooo much energy and liiiiiiike MAYBE they were even chocolate covered coffee beans...heeeeeeeey chocolate covered coffee beans are like DOUBLE DANIEL FAST because chocolate is ALSO a bean...stay tuned to NEXT WEDNESDAY to find out IF Daniel was eating chocolate covered coffee beans during his Daniel Fast!!! And don't get all overly spiritual on me trying to explain this...just enjoy the ride!!! :))))

The voice of God...

How do we recognize God's voice???
In conversation with someone once about the will of God and they said, "I mean really, who knows the will of God anyways, besides GOD himself?" 
I was like HUH??? 
We have to be able to know God's will for ourselves in order to do His will.  But this got me to thinking, HOW can we know the voice of God for ourselves? HOW do we recognize the voice of God from all the other voices that are speaking to us?
I came to the realization, that we can recognize God's voice the SAME WAY we are able to recognize the voice of a close friend or loved one, by SPENDING TIME with them. WHEN YOU KNOW SOMEONE, YOU KNOW THEIR VOICE!!! You can get a phone call from someone that you are with all the time, they can call from an unrecognized number and once they start talking to you, you will know who they are!!! Even if you haven't spent time with them in a while, if you'll just listen for a moment or two as they talk, you will KNOW who they are. IF you're NOT recognizing God's voice, maybe it's because it's been too long since you've really spent time with him. Or perhaps it's because you NEVERRR really took the time to get to know him in the first place. 
There have been a few times that my close friends have ACTUALLY been able to trick me into believing it was someone else I was talking to instead of them. However, you know what I realized? It was ONLY because I WAS DOING ALL THE TALKING and they were just listening. In my excitement of what I was telling, I wasn't REALLY listening to their little uh, Huh's and Yeah's, HAD I STOPPED TALKING and ACTUALLY allowed them to talk, I would have KNOWN in a moment who it REALLY WAS!!! Sometimes we NEED to just STOP and LISTEN so we can RECONIZE God's voice when he is talking! 
How did God talk to Elijah???
"...but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.  And it was so, when Elijah heard it..." (1 Kings 19:11-13) 
I think sometimes that we are sooooo busy looking for the big signs and wonders, that we can't even hear or recognize his voice when He DOES speak to us. We ask God to show us something. We ask God to reveal His will to us and we're expecting a big booming, thundering voice from heaven and we end up ignoring God's DIRECT whisper right into our ear. If you really stop and think about it, the really BIG SIGNS God did for people in the Bible, was because those people, Balaam and the donkey, Jonah and the whale, Gideon's fleece, all those people had to get really BIG SIGNS from God to do His will, because they didn't really hear Him when He originally told them what to do. 
You know, when your close to someone, when you're standing by them, sitting with them, you don't have to SHOUT to get their attention. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is WHISPER!!! If God has to take drastic measures and there are times that he will, it's ALMOST ALWAYS simply because we weren't listening to him all the other times that he was talking to us!!! You SHOUT at people to get their attention. IF you're paying attention to God, He won't need to SHOUT out to you with lightning bolts. When your close to God, all He has to do is WHISPER and you'll hear Him.  I want to be close enough to God that I can recognize his whisper.
Write it down...
When God tells you something, date it and write it down. It's not always right to tell everyone what God told you. Yet, you want to remember it. When God tells you something, it can seem so bold and clear in the moment, but as time goes by, in our humanity we will begin to wonder, was that really God, or was that just ME??? 
One time for me this happened, I went to a conference, and I honestly don't even remember what the preacher preached about, it was Bro. Ham and it was a good message and I was clearly touched. I went to the altar, and I was praying and praying, and I told God, I would do ANYTHING for you! I would give up anything for you! And God quietly whispered a certain guy's name to me, even him? I was soooooo shocked. Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh...It's time for you to let him go. That was the message God so clearly, yet quietly whispered to my heart. I said I would, but I could not fathom in my mind WHY God would want this.
He was my best friend. Our personalities seemed perfect together. We went to the same church, he was practically family, and well to me, this guy was just PERFECT. It never once crossed my mind that there was something going on with him spiritually, I assumed I just wasn't good enough for someone like him. As time went by, nothing changed, we were still best friends, my feelings stayed the same. Obedience to God is not based our feelings. There were times I would think, maybe I heard you wrong God, maybe that was just me, and then I'd look back to that moment in my journal and reread how clear God's voice had been to me in that moment at the altar. As time continued to go by, I finally saw what God had seen all along.  
That's just one example, I have many other words from God written down. If you're not a writer, record it for yourself on your phone, or just mark it with a word on your calendar for when doubt starts creeping in. 
Recognizing the voice of God is not complicated and analytical. It's so simple, just like you know the voice of any loved one, that's HOW you will know the voice of God. There isn't some secret strategy or formula or connection. To know the voice of God, you must FIRST know Him.  If you want to recognize the voice of God, all you need to do is spend time with Him. 
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, 
and they follow me."
 (John 10:27)

Just little of this and that I’ve been posting for you guys in between running around but not REAL WRITING!!!
I was telling my sister- in-law today that I actually start feeling anxious when I go too long without writing… idk… I guess it’s just something God put in me and if I don’t use it for Him something doesn’t feel right!!! Like I’m being wasteful with the gift 🎁 he gave me!!!  
Soooooooo the plan for tomorrow is after the kids leave for school 🏫 GO TO THE LIBRARY AND WRITE ALLLLLLL DAY TILL ITS TIME TO PICK THEM UP FROM SCHOOL!!! Wooooooohoooooo!!!

Put your trust in God, not man. People come, people go, keep your feet cemented in the church ⛪️. No matter how down you feel, GO TO CHURCH!!!

That’s how it is when you stay in God’s will!! I may have no kids, no husband, buuuuuuut I’ve still got my purity, my first kiss 😘 and the joy of the Holy Ghost!!!!! What have I been doing for the last 21 years of my life??? Living for God and having a whole lot of fun 🤩 doing so!!! Jesus IS AND ALWAYS will be THE BEST THING that’s ever happened to me!!!

WHY God can’t be figured out!!!

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...
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 females 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 :)
I know that God is a spirit, buuuuut Jesus, who IS GOD manifested in the flesh, , is a man! Furthermore, every time God is referred to in the Bible, it is ALWAYS in a male connotation...NEVER FEMALE!!!
