Living Arrangement - 3 br/2bath/ open floor plan brand new home on 1/2 acre which I am truly in love with and have awesome God blessing stories to go w/ it!

Unusual talent/skill - Unusual huh? I guess I'm sort of psychic or prophetic I guess you'd call it. (I've never really told anyone this before) but things come to me a situation or story and then later someone will tell me the story that actually happenend to them... I can think about my dad and then he'll call me and say you were thinking about me today huh and vice versa... it's weird
.Vegetable I refuse to eat - Lima Beans - I'd starve first!
.Worst habit - swearing and yelling when I finally lose my temper
X-rays - Lot's of them with my most recent ones being related to my back issues (which the Lord has healed)
.Yummy foods I make - Cakes and a killer meatloaf (add sausage that's the secret) and I don't really know what else... I guess appetizers are my specialty
Okay - now if you are reading this...tag you're it!
School starts tomorrow! HOORAY! Tucker is totally excited. I met his teacher tonight and his class is pretty small (as is the classroom). There was only two names of kids I recognized from his class last year. And one of them is the horrible Samantha! He was scared to death she'd be in his class. She's a total bully and was horrible last year... Oh I pray that he continues with the GREAT behavior we've had all summer!!
I'm excited that we don't have to do any daycare this year. That should be a huge difference in his behavior... he gets to sleep in everyday. Which to Tucker is 7-7:30am.
I've been getting things ready for the Prims class I'll be teaching at church. Trying to be really organized this year so it'll be fun for the girls and I want to take them on a couple of field trips this year. I want to be the coolest teacher ever! LOL!
I will be celebrating my 4 yr anniversary this Thursday. Actually we'll be celebrating Friday night but the 23rd is the actual day. I am so looking forward to Friday night. I've got a sitter and I'm taking Tim to this really cool new mall/city they built. It's got all kinds of really nice resturants and a books and co that takes up a whole block! It's going to be so fun!
So, that's my life...
OH! I've gotta tell ya this! Wow, God is so awesome and for those of you who know Him personally already know that.
This morning during my morning prayer and bible time I was praying about doing devotions or something with Tucker and low and behold at 5:50am (10 min before i have to wake him) here comes Tucker walking out of his room! i said what are you doing and he said (as he crawls up in my lap ) I just wanted to spend some time with you this morning. So I finished my bible reading and read him his Keys for Kids (which I've not been reading to him for a long time). What an awesome way to start his day and mine too! Wow - what a blessing. It also showed me that I can work it into our mornings. I can teach and train Tucker to spend time with God in His word in the morning while I am training myself! Thank you Heavenly Father for answering prayer, heartfelt genuine prayer so immediately and graciously. I just want to love you and edify you Lord with my thoughts and my voice and that of my family! I lift them to you oh Lord and ask that You bless us each and help to show us the way. Thank you Father for your goodness and for the Holy Spirit that you have sent here to us to guide us and talk to us! Lord you are so great and mighty!!
