Back to School 2013

It's that time of year again...that our children go back to school!! I don't know about you but I am excited for them. So are they, however, I do miss them dearly during the day. It's a blessing though because my husband is there with them all day. He's on I feel very greatful and blessed for that.  I love doing special tradition's its a fun way to make memories and to look back and see their growth.

Last year both of my girls were blessed to be able to go to our church school and again this year. It was my oldest second year going and my little ones first. We had homeschooled previously for a couple of years. So, I wanted to keep some fun traditions going. I did it with homeschooling but some years I forgot. Here are a few things that we do

Here is last years pic's {2012}.....they were so little.

Here are this years pic's {2013}...aweeee how they have grown!!!! {wwwhaaaahhh!!!}

My girls started school last week, so on the first day of school I made them a special breakfast and then took their pictures with their first day of school sign. My oldeset, I think, is starting to grow out of it. I told her I am going to do it until she goes to college and then gets married. LOL!!!

Here are just a few of the traditions we started last year. I just printed out some lunch box notes, I found on pinterest {totally addicted!!} and they even had scripture lunch box printables. I put a napkin, utensils {if needed} and I will sometimes put a very small treat {none in this one} in a baggie.

I also make the teachers gifts as well {if I have time}. Here is what I did this year. I actually printed out another tag from pinterest {you are the write teacher for me}. And on the chalkboard label I printed out "PENS"{on my label maker} to attach to the chalkboard label so it would be a little bit cleaner looking {not pictured above}. I wanted the chalk writing look but it was coming off , as you can see below.

So have fun with it, I don't do it all the time or put the notes everyday {I try to if I have time}. It just makes it special.

I would love to hear what traditions you do for the first day of school?

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
