Thoughts for the Day

I have personally be praying a verse for me out of Is. it talks about that God will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast in him, because that means we trust him...as a mom I find this to be so challenging...my mind steadfast...my mind seems to wander at times to randomness and then ridiculous...and I find myself at times believing and listening to lies that are so far fetched...all because my mind is not steadfast...I have been asking God to please do this in my heart and in my mind...I want his peace...because I find my random thoughts often lead me to anxiousness, discontentment and distraction...can anyone relate?...

I have been thinking about ps. 139 the past couple of days...the verse that talks about him being familiar with our ways has really been sticking in my heart...I don't know why except to think he is familiar with ALL my ways, what a wild thought...so I have throughout the last couple of days been saying "Lord, you are familiar with my ways"...all of them...and just being blown away by that...

Today, what is hitting home with me alot is the part of ps. 139 that talks about where can we go from his Spirit or his presence?...and the answer is no where...then it talks about him guiding us and holding us fast...so today I am thankful, thankful for "his always with us"....never alone, even when my flesh feels so alone, I am not...

Mother's Day

What a great day it was!!!!! So fun getting to be Jayk's mom...I couldn't help but be so excited and overwhelmed by his sweet smiles yesterday...I loved holding him, laughing with him, and just looking at him when he didn't know I was...it was so fun...I told Jerrell that today is better than a birthday...just sweet to get to be Jayk's mom...I was so blessed...

My husband was so awesome...I think he told me 15 times that day "Happy Mother's Day" and I loved every moment of it...he gave me a gift from Jayk of the sweetest Precious Moments, it was a mom holding a little boy after he gets out of a bath and that is what I do with Jayk...so it was so fun of Jerrell...He also gave me a card from Jayk that had scibble in it from Jayk...Jerrell put a pen in Jayks little hand and had him go at it...Jerrell's gift was a day of shopping and spa...he said he would keep Jayk and I just had to pick the saturday...Wow a whole day...My man is the greatest...What a wonderful day....Thank you Lord...

Big Days in Jaykers Life

I wanted to update ya'll on some big days in the life of Jayk...you may first be wondering why does it say "Jaykers"...That is because that is what I lovingly call him...he is my little Jaykers, Jayk bit...all other kinds of pet names but for now I will only share a few...but will slowly unveil them as the blog goes on...but back to the big days in Jayk's life...the first one was 2 weeks ago we put him in the nursery at the church for the first time...and he did great...I had someone yesterday tell me he calls it the "germ pool" at Jayk's age...but I chose to not listen and to smile as I took him to his class...rm. 121...that is his room...his big boy room...I am so proud of him...his first Sunday he didn't sleep...he checked everything out...making sure this was going to be ok...but yesterday glory to God he slept..I was so proud of him...the second big day for little Jaykers was yesterday we had parent commitment...He did so good no crying or anything...I do have to say that something I have noticed about my little guy is that he gets overwhelmed in big groups...he just becomes silent with very few smiles...which is SO unlike him...we are thinking he has a little of his mom's personality...which is fun to watch...but he is totally a crazy fun loving baby when he is with those he feels comfortable with and in his jumperoo...So those are the two big days in our little guys life that needed to be shared

*Pictures will be up soon of these events so check our smugmug out soon...

Beginning New Schedules

I am sure that ever mother can relate...that once you get comfortable in a schedule it is time to change to a new one...well, that is where I find myself today...stepping out on faith, starting a new schedule...Jayk recently has started having some solids so that has changed his desire for wanting milk more frequently...so we are in a change today...and I just needed to let everyone know, one to have other mothers relate and two to have some prayers sent up for my little guy and for mommy :) ...I will definately keep you updated on how it is going...
