Our family trip

I haven't been on much lately because i've been depressed. My family has been planning to go to Florida for months now. The plan was that my family paid for everything, and then be REIMBURSED by my father for his half. That way in actuality we would just be paying for the car rental, attractions, and food. And he would pay for the plane tickets. But at the last minute my dad backed out. We already paid for everything. We can not and will not cancel our trip. This would have been our first family trip. EVER. We promised our children and we won't turn our backs on them. After living in a shelter, and moving from place to place, we all deserve to do something normal as a family. But unfortunately now we are a bit tight since we have to deal with this AND the moving expenses on our own. My father won't lend us money even though he makes a lot more than we do and I had to LEND HIM MONEY more than once in the last few months alone. I am putting up a widget for anyone who feels led to help. Thank you, and God Bless.

Thank You

I thank you all for your prayers. Things at work have started to calm. I don't feel so attacked. I know that it could only be the Lord working through your prayers.
The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous. Proverbs 15:29

Pray for my deliverance

My job is getting harder and harder. Everyone around me is after my
misfortune. The majority of the people I work with are under 25 who
are as promiscuous as they are cold hearted. They treat me as if I am
a lower grade of human because I am not rowdy, sexually open in my
vocabulary or actions, and because I am "religious". I have tried
reaching out to them and they call me unwanted, they laugh at me and
are plain rude to me. I have tried keeping to myself and I am called a
snob and am made fun of anyway. I have no one to talk to except my
husband and my God and my tears as they flow freely and frequently. It
is such a good job that is getting ruined because of these things.
Horrible rumors have been spread about me in the last few months
saying that I complain about everything because I am a Christian and
everything is offensive to me. While it is true that I am a Christian
and a lot of the things that I see and hear are offensive to my Christ
covered ears, I have never said so because it is none of my business
but the rumors keep coming.I pray to God that I don't have to work,
but it is the hand I have been dealt. I know that I could never move
my family to Arizona, to a safe and God fearing environment without
this job.

We now interupted Friday services for this special announcement

Poop! AHHHHHHHHHHH! We were having a grand ole' time in church, when we smelled something. So i ran my son to the bathroom, and nothing. He sat on the toilet for a while, and still nothing. So we returned to our seats. Then..... it happened. We smelt it. He pooped in his pants.

I'd like to pause here for a moment and tell you that my son will be 5 years old in November, and has just understood what potty training means. He has been without a diaper for a week. It has been a great achievement. This is his first "poop" accident.

We did not have any spare pants or underwear and to make it worse, he smeared it over his legs as we were taking off his pants. Talk about emergency!!! 10 minutes and lots of wet paper towels later, he ran out of the church bathroom in front of the whole congregation with just a shirt on. NOTHING ELSE.

I packed up our stuff and went home. Luckily my daughter and I had decided to wear really long scarves on our heads to church today and i used them as blankets for him as he rode home in the stroller. God provides.

I'm still upset tho. I hate having to leave church because of my kids. It has happened so many times for one reason or another. It has gotten easier as they have gotten older, but it is SO hard to worship and fellowship when you have to stop every few minutes to take them to the bathroom, or to calm/quiet them down, or correct them, or even chase after them in the sanctuary.....

Please tell me i am not the only one who has dealt with this.
This makes me want to consider homechurch. And being that there are no likeminded people in my area, it would be a congregation of one.

I love our country so much. People take for granted the freedoms that we have. Freedoms that were paid for by the lives of our solders. Freedom is not free.
