Showers of Blessings...

Well, since I am stuck inside with nothing to do (due to the weather) I finally have time to post.
Both kiddos are in bed and I'm cuddled up on the couch watching a good Madea movie and typing this post.

God has been showering us with blessings that I feel so unworthy of, but I'm so very thankful for! We will be moving into our new house..(.yes I said OUR house =) ) in a couple of weeks. It is a beautiful old country house. It has an upstairs with 2 bed rooms and a little play area, two rooms down stairs, a huge living room, dining room and kitchen and everything that I could have ever dreamed of. It is just perfect for us. And the best part is the payments will be the same as what we pay now for rent. God is so good, and again I feel so unworthy. I can't wait to get in there and start painting and decorating! Of course i'm terrible at decorating so my cousin is going to be doing most of it. She is SUPER talented. Here is link to her blog

My photography has really taken off! I have 2 maternity shoots coming up, one single shoot, and a wedding in Oct. aaaand possibly another wedding in July. I recently did a engagement shoot that was so much fun. here are some of a few of my newest pics.
So excited to see where God takes this. I'm having a blast with it! I'm taking my first photography class in Feb. I can't wait to learn some new things and continue to get better.
hope everyone has a GREAT weekend! Stay warm, and safe!

He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.

Smears & Smudges

 again...I hate to say but I don't have time to sit and write a post...I promise there is one to come soon!
one of the blogs I follow posted this poem and I thought I would is sooo true and I need to be reminded that all the mess can kids need me to sit down and play and make memories.

Some houses try to hide the fact
That children shelter there,
Ours boasts it quite openly,
The signs are everywhere.

For smears are on the windows,
Little smudges are on the doors.
I should apologize, I guess,
For toys strewn on the floor.

But I sat down with my children
And we played and laughed and read.
And if the doorbell doesn't shine,
Their eyes will shine instead.

For when at times I'm forced to choose
The one job or the other,
I'd like to cook and clean and scrub,
But first I'll be a mother.

Ch Ch Ch Changes....

One of my FAV books of the bible is James,  I Love it because it shows what a life transformed by Jesus looks like.
I was reading last night and the one verse that I kept coming back to and soaking in was James 1:19-21.
 It reads:
    Take note of this: Every one should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

The message version:
Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God's righteousness doesn't grow from human anger.

So many times I do this backwards and tend to want to just say what I feel and not spend time asking God how I should respond. I have learned and I am still learning that I MUST go to God for my answers and not just automatically go on what I think is the answer; with my kids, hubs, music ministry, and every day relationships. I'm sure you all can relate!

on another note ♪♫

It's new years resolution time!
I have to be honest, I have never really done a new years  resolution.
This year I do have some things I want to work on:

My desire and passion is to grow deeper in Love with my sweet Jesus. I want to see him do amazing things in our church and in my families lives...I have to say I'm more excited about the things of God than I have ever been in my entire life. I KNOW He has awesome things in store for us .( Isiah 43:19, 1Corinthians 2:9,Ecclesoastes 3:11)

I Corinthians 10:24 –The Lord is really showing me how to get better at this.

I Corinthians 16:13-14 – I pray this for me…easy to read, a struggle to apply.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 -The Hubs and I are also working on how to make our marriage even stronger (there is always room for improvement!) I am blessed to be married to a wonderful man of God who cares and loves me deeply.♥

Ephesians 4:4  - When you become a parent you become a student. I'm always learning and I in no way have it mastered! It has always been my prayer that our kids will always see Jesus in us and His awesome love through us. Sometimes it gets crazy at the Segars house and our nerves are shot... I hope to get better at taking a breath before losing my cool.

So here is to 2010! the Best is yet to come!


1 Chronicles 16:27

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy in his dwelling place.
