First off, my little man is sick :-(

He has had a fever on and off for a couple of months now.

This episode has gone on since Tuesday.

It is his dad's weekend for visitation.

Little man is not with his momma.

He went to the hospital last night.

Had a fever of 103.4 . . . got up to 104.5 while he was there.

They think its just a mouth virus.

I wanted to be there so badly.

God was there. He always is. He is making sure little man is cared for when he is away from me. The doctors said not to worry. Yeah easy for them to say. But I am leaning on God for all I've got because I know He can handle it.

Little man may "just" have a fever and I know there are children far worse off than him but this is my baby boy. I can't help but be a nervous wreck about him not feeling well. Hopefully his fever broke by now. His dad is at work (he is with his great grandparents) so I'll have to wait for an update.

*deep breathing*

Now that I have that off my chest, lets move on to other news.

With the Lord's blessing we are moving forward to do a single moms study! It is going to be for seven weeks, the first week being introductions, focusing on adventures in mothering. I'm super excited for it. It is going to be great to connect with other moms who are in this same season of singleness.

I am so thankful for my little sister. She truly is amazing. :-) We are ten years apart. We hang out quite a bit. As far as sisters go I think we rock! She is so understanding for only being twelve years old. Love you Woo!!!

With little man being so sick, I no longer have a job. Part of being the only parent at home. My church has a position open for a ministry assistant. It is right up my alley! I applied. If it is God's Will then great! If not then I'm still super happy about seeing the job! Why you may ask . . . because it opens my eyes to different jobs that I could do. Ones that are glorifying to God!!!

Thanks to my beautiful MOPS sister for posting about my need of a lawn mower, I can mow my own yard! That is on the agenda for this weekend!!

To any mom out there that doesn't have time to get into the Word, I would highly recommend the Busy Mom's Bible. I got mine from Walmart and I love the way it is set up.

This is all for now. God Bless!!!!

What's on the Heart

As I type this little man is screaming and crying. :-( He does not want to go to bed. He wants his momma. I don't mind holding him until he is almost asleep but this screaming is so hard to deal with. I want to hold him but I know he needs to learn to go to sleep on his own :-(

I'm trying to figure out what God is calling me to do and it's not easy. I don't expect it to be because the devil likes to knock us off the narrow path. Prayer and time in the Word will be the only way to figure it all out. As of right now the plan is to go back to school in the fall for something that I know is not what I want to do for the rest of my life and isn't my true calling. A post in the church bulletin spoke to me but I need to get more information on it. Not sure if I meet the qualifications.

A very dear friend of mine, basically a sister, is unsure of things as well. It is always nice to know someone is in the same boat and we can be in prayer for each other.

more to come later

not much

It has been a long while since I have had a chance to get my thoughts typed out. Little man and I have both had our share of sickness. Thursday evening he threw up all over me and the chair. It was not a fun time. But I will say it is quite amazing what a mom can withstand. In the past I have not been able to tolerate my own throw up but when it is your child, it is a different story. The chair still smells :-( Hopefully with a few more cleanings it will get better.

Seeing God in everyday things is becoming easier. Being in His Word (which I need to do more of) and being in constant communication with Him through prayer does that.

The church I attend had an amazing parent/infant dedication a few Sundays ago. I dedicated myself to raise little man to love the Lord. I have a long road ahead of me but I know all things are possible with God. My parents were able to attend and got to hear The Crossings pastor, Danny, so hopefully that planted a seed to get them to come to church!

God has placed on my heart a group for moms who happen to be single. I've talked with a few of my MOPS sisters about it and am figuring out what all it would take. To start we will probably end up doing a short six week study on Sunday mornings to get a feel for the need. I know for me it would be amazing to be able to talk to other moms in this season of singleness.

I thought I had a lot to get out for this post but apparently my mind doesn't think so.
