Adventures in Homeownership!

We’ve only been living in our new home for 5 months, and the joy that it has brought us already is so astounding!! Here are a few of our portraits in and around our new home. We feel so blessed and thank the Lord very often for this gift of homeownership!

I just adore my sons Daniel O’Brien and Gabriel Elijah. Seeing them every day run around our home, wrestling, running up and down the stairs, climbing on furniture, leaving their sticky hands on the walls, all of it just makes me so joyful (even the aftermath!). I love seeing them happy and thriving, thanks again Jesus.

I love how my husband comes home every day and takes care of the grounds and the grass. He turns his sprinklers on every week to make sure that his grass is thriving. He also takes pride in taking care of our new rose bushes in the front of our home, as well as taking care of a Peace Lilly plant that his sister gave us for our housewarming. He has also adopted a baby tree and repotted her in our backyard. Whoever would have thought that a big burly man such as Daniel would have such a green thumb and a love for even the littlest of nature.

You said that if we are FAITHFUL over a FeW things, HALLELUJAH, that YOU would MAKE us RULER over many! Glory.

POEM: Woman

precious

I was speechless when I read this. And, I got chills too. The Lord is good and a very wise God.

WOMAN.

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

She must function on all kinds of situations,
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,
Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,
She must do all this with only two hands,”
She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day”.

THE ANGEL was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!

And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman”
“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome”.

“Can she think?” The Angel asked…
The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”.

The Angel touched her cheeks….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her”
“She is not leaking…it is a tear” The Lord corrected the Angel…

“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel…..
The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”…

This made a big impression on the Angel,
“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvellous”.

Lord said.”Indeed she is.
She has strength that amazes a man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.

Her love is unconditional.
Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life”

The Angel asked: So she is a perfect being?
The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback
“She often forgets what she is worth”.

Send it to all the women u respect ….👍

And to all men who respect women 👍👍

W O M A N:
● changes her name.
● changes her home.
● leaves her family.
● moves in with you.
● builds a home with you.
● gets pregnant for you.
● pregnancy changes her body.
● she gets fat.
● almost gives up in the labour room due to the unbearable pain of child birth..
● even the kids she delivers bear your name..

Till the day she dies.. everything she does… cooking, cleaning your house, taking care of your parents, bringing up your children, earning, advising you, ensuring you can be relaxed, maintaining all family relations, everything that benefit you.. sometimes at the cost of her own health, hobbies and beauty.

So who is really doing whom a favour?

Dear men, appreciate the women in your lives always, because it is not easy to be a woman.

*Being a woman is priceless*

Happy women’s week!

Pass this to every woman in your contact to make her feel proud of herself.
Rock the world ladies!
A salute to ladies!

WOMAN MEANS:-
W – WONDERFUL MOTHER.
O – OUTSTANDING FRIEND.
M – MARVELLOUS DAUGHTER.
A – ADORABLE SISTER.
N – NICEST GIFT TO MEN FROM GOD.

I respect women.

We Are New Homeowners!

I feel like praising GOD! For, HE is GOOOOOD to me! He loves me with an unconditional love, and He rains (reigns) down His glorious presence on me!

My husband and I recently purchased a BRAND NEW HOME! After 5 years of marriage, THIS WAS THE BEST ANNIVERSARY GIFT THAT A WOMAN COULD ASK FOR! I feel like shouting because the Lord is faithful. He said in His word that if we are faithful over a few things, that he would make us ruler over MANY things!

Welcome HOME, Wilson’s!

Our home is on 0.29 acres of 1 lot in the countryside of Winterville; it has 2,648 square feet of brand new construction! We spent 1-year planning and preparing, 2 months of paperwork and 6 hours in time spent closing at the law office!

God gave us a field for Daniel and Gabriel to run in, AMAZING neighbors whom we’ve already met and support from MANY family and friends! We spent a lifetime of praying and have 1 God who is in the midst of it all!! The Lord is good! Daniel and I are ready to make our house a HOME!

I can envision so many family dinners here, many breakfasts in bed with our hotel-style bedding and decor, many mornings at the bar area sipping hot coffee, and MANY evenings on the patio enjoying the warm summer air!!

Keep us in your prayers and we will do the same for you.

Bless you Jesus, for I am GLAD!

Good, Good Father

MY-DESIGN_GOOD-GOOD-FATHER.jpg

On this cold and icy morning, I am reminded of God’s faithfulness and that He. Is. Good. He is good when we are not good to Him, He is good when we are in our selfish own ways, and He is good when we are not faithful. Lord, help us to realize your faithfulness to us and that we need You. There is a glorious song that rings in my heart daily – It’s called “Good, Good Father” by Casting Crowns. Chris Tomlin has a psalm for it too. I have recently discovered a new group whom I am fond of who sings this hymn and who just recently followed me on Twitter. “Housefires” is a group who promotes the true gospel and a spirit-filled life through song.

|| S O N G ||

Oh, I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think You’re like but I’ve heard the tender whisper of love in the dead of night.

You tell me that You’re pleased and that I’m never alone.

You’re a Good, Good Father, It’s who You are, It’s who you are, It’s who You are and I’m loved by You.

It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am.

I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide.

But I know we’re all searching for answers only You provide.

‘Cause You know just what we need before we say a word.

You’re a Good, Good Father. It’s who You are, It’s who You are, It’s who You are and I’m loved by You. It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am.

You are perfect in all of Your ways, You are perfect in all of Your ways, You are perfect in all of Your ways to us.

Oh it’s Love so undeniable I, I can hardly speak.

Peace so Unexplainable I, I can hardly think.

As You call me deeper still as You call me deeper still as You call me deeper still into love.

You’re a Good, Good Father It’s who You are, It’s who You are, It’s who you are and I’m loved by You It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am You’re a Good, Good Father It’s who You are.

Today Lord, help us to give our worship to You. Let this song permeate our every being. Let this song be the anthem of our hearts – hearts filled with gratitude and thankfulness unto You.

May we meditate on Your precepts and seek Your will for our lives. Help us to know that You. Are. Good. And, that You are GOD.

In spite of it all. In spite of anything that we may be going through and in spite of any doubt that tries to creep in. Touch everyone reading this today, Jesus that their hearts may feel Your call.

Guide us in our finances, our families, our friendships and our marriages. Cover us in Your holy blood. Let us see Your salvation. Thank You for being a holy and Good, Good Father.

Stealing Away with Jesus

Hi,

This moment matters. This moment is worth something. Time with Jesus and in His presence is what matters and counts in this life. My children, my husband and our family is what matters. Nothing else matters. If you don’t have Jesus- and Jesus doesn’t have a hold on you- what really matters in this life? Your job doesn’t matter, your social life doesn’t matter- NOTHING MATTERS WITHOUT THE LORD ON YOUR SIDE.

I wanted to spend a moment with my Saviour on this day. It is Gabriel Elijah’s birthday and I am looking forward to celebrating with him all day- we may go get some ice cream and balloons, and of course his first haircut.We are so excited. Never forget what matters in this life. God is beyond worthy and He wants us to sneak away for some time with Him. This life can get very busy, and you’re bound to crack under pressure if you can’t steal away with Jesus. That’s how it is with me, anyway- I need worship music with all of my favorite iTunes, and an open space to pray and kneel before God, earnestly seeking my Saviour in prayer. Or even my closet. Sometimes, I turn on the closet light, make a bed on the floor- turn on Pandora and relax in the Lord’s presence. And He comes- He meets me there. Every time He takes a moment to remind me how important I am, how special I am, and that His love for me will never fail. His love is everlasting and unending. He loves me with a holy love, a brotherly love; and Father God loves me with a daddy love. He’s my Abba, my Abba; My Abba GOD. My PAPA GOD.

My struggling words can never find the proper vocabulary to express the magnitude of gratitude that I have in You and for You, my Lord. Continue to guide my footsteps and lead me deep into Your sweet will for my life.

Today I plucked the following from the prayer box:

“For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:8

“I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not.” -Isaiah 41:13a

Amen.

HAPPY FALL 2013!!

Shutterfly has deals for these 8×8 photo albums all of the time. I FINALLY made one!!! We had a photo session on October 20th for Fall, and I just had to create something with them, and this is what I came up with, along with Thanksgiving cards that I ordered through Vistaprint.

I love paper projects!!!

Here’s our photo album. It only took like two hours to create. You just have to make sure you have all the pictures on hand that you would like to use. It was so much fun and turned out so wonderful!!! I got the promo code after I made a baby purchase at Food Lion.

Here is a link to my Fall Project!:
