Fears… Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Prayer: Lord, I pray that fear will not rule over us. Instead may your word penetrate every fiber of our being, letting us know that your love for us is far greater than anything we face and nothing can separate us from it. You have not given us a spirit of fear. You’ve given us power love, and a sound mind. (2 timothy 1:7). My husband and I will not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday (psalm 91:5-6). In Jesus name, AMEN!
Protection… Psalm 91:1-2 (amp) “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God, on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!” My husband is military and every time he is called to deployment, protection is the first thing on my mind for him. I know he’s thinking the same thing for me and our children, but through the years we have learned to always pray from the time we find out he’s leaving to the time he boards the plane to leave. Prayer for protection is key! Lord, I pray that you [Continue Reading…]
Happy New Year Everyone!!! God’s plan for marriage was very important to us when we first decided to come together. We did not want to repeat what both our parents did. My mom and his mom were both single parents raising kids and we did not want to repeat that. We had a desire to show our children what a Godly marriage looked like. Genesis 1:27-28 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them, and God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that [Continue Reading…]
January is always a month of starting new, starting over, making new habits, to set the year off right. Well for me, January is the month of my wedding anniversary and I wanted to set the tone of my marriage off right for the rest of the year. My husband and I have been married going on 8 years, with three children now and everything hasn’t been “A bed of roses” ever since the beginning we bumped heads from the start, but God stepped in and changed everything, we learned to love each other’s faults, craziness and hick ups and we couldn’t be more in love with each other today! So with my wedding anniversary in mind and starting a new year, I want to introduce a series called: Focus [Continue Reading…]
Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses essential oils to help a person’s mood, health and environment. You can use any kind of diffusers.There is a difference, A reed diffuser is a type of wick that fragrance from inside the bottle, carries it to the top surface of the reed, and releases the fragrance into the air naturally. There is another one where you can burn the oils and lastly, the popular water diffuser you use to put oils in the water and it evaporates into the air.

In connection to Part 1, where I talked about getting married into the military, specifically the Marine Corps, The fact remains that there is no ONE place on the Web that tells you what to do when you get married!
