I thank my precious Abba Father (Creator God) for all He has allowed, is allowing, & will allow in my life! May all the glory for any modest successes achieved on this lifestyle changing journey be His & His alone! Amen & Amen!

Life is good - it always has been - however, there is a special new sweetness to it since I determined to stop playing around & get serious about following my program.

Like I said - life is good!

P.S. ~

The 'Twin Visitors" photograph was taken in early July. I looked out the window & had the pleasant experience of being eye-to-eye with one of them. Their Mama was right with them in the trees outside the window. They were so adorably cute!

My dearly treasured "Mr.V" quickly got the camera & took a few photographs. I think it is so cute how one seems to be posing for the picture to be snapped, while his twin is eagerly following their Mama!

    I don't know much about baseball, my husband and son enjoy watching games together and hollering at the TV, lol!

    Tim Tebow was at the local Suns stadium recently. It set an attendance record for the stadium. We didn't go.

    I hope all goes well with Little Gal's grooming. I used to cut hubby's hair, but it would make him jumpy. Now he pays for haircuts.

    I had my hair cut short when my sister had a woman come to her house and perm my hair before the wedding. I never learned how to style my hair or put on makeup. I still don't know how to do either one and don't wear makeup or color my hair. It is gray going to white.

    I told my son last night that God has been so good to him with the things he has done that were illegal and wrong. He will make about $5000 less a year at the new job. Maybe he will think about what being tardy cost him. It will be up to him and his wife to work through their financial difficulties.

    I was happy to hear that he was hired.

    Bobby fell out of my good graces when it turned out that his third wife needed emergency surgery and he didn't bother to go to the hospital for THREE DAYS because he was appearing at a food festival in Florida and didn't want to leave. I don't blame her -- I'd have thrown him out myself.

    I have not said any more to my husband or to our son. Through the years, there have been things that both my children and my husband felt that it was God dealing with them for their behaviors.

    Your tenderheartedness just spilled out, and I didn't mind reading about it all. There are some people that are like parasites, living off of others. I am not saying our son is like that, but he does not save for his own emergencies.

    In high school, when his grandmother was alive, I did her bank statements and saw where he was writing checks to himself and forging her signature. I told my husband. His way of handling it was to put the money back into Mom's account.

    I brought this to his attention the other night. As a father, he did not hold our son accountable and he covered for him. At the time, when I didn't think my husband putting the money back into Mom's account was beneficial to our son, I contacted my sister and told her my dilemma with both our son and my husband. She contacted my son and told him if she heard or saw another incidence of him taking money by taking one of Mom's checks, that she would have him arrested. He knew she would follow through and stopped. It wasn't hard, but it wasn't done by my husband.

    I cried too when my mother-in-law helped us with jars of canned food. She had little in this life and I didn't want to burden her, but I felt like I would burst if we didn't get some help of some sort. My husband was upset that I told her. By the time I told her, we were really in need.

    When our son was in high school, I found pot in his bedroom and empty miniature bottles of alcohol. There was a homemade pipe made from a plastic Coke bottle with the lid of a salt shaker implanted on the side of the bottle. I took the bottle to the police department and wanted to know if our son was using crack. I could have been arrested for having the bottle, but the officer seemed to understand that I was wanting to deal with our son.

    I told him another offense and he was out of my house. Well, I ended up throwing him out and he had to stay with friends or sleep somewhere other than our house. It really helped him. I told him about my husband losing his job for an offense that happened before we met and married and told him, don't think that there is no harm in drug use. It had affected all of us when hubby lost his job.

    I have let all of this go now. God may be merciful and let our son find work without him being caught driving without a license. If not, I told him that Dad would chauffeur him wherever he needed to go, but he had to break the law.

    You and I are in agreement about our son's tickets. I wrote another blog tonight. My husband tells me he is in agreement with me on the way we will handle this and then when our son is here, he says just the opposite.

    It is out of my hands. God will have to deal with it because I sure don't have the answer when I am told one thing, but then a different message is relayed to our son. At least he knows where Mom stands and he will not come to me, he will seek his father privately. That is what has been done through the years and I expect it will continue until I die.

    I never get used to living this way though.
