Today is Tuesday

Apparently as we get older, things just seem to pass by so quickly... I can't believe in just few days it will be Thanksgiving!!  Well I here in the US  I have to laugh about that because I have Canadian friends who celebrate on the wrong day, just kidding friends!  but yeah... lol

I am looking forward to hosting my very first Thanksgiving at our new house. So this week I have been working towards making everything look lovely around the house.  I got my grocery shopping out of the way... well I still need to pick up a few items from the grocery store I forgot lol   I seem to be more forgetful these days... does that ever happen to you?

It also keeps getting colder... I know its just that time of the year for cold weather...but yet again we are dealing with heating issues... and it looks like we will be replacing our whole unit soon enough... but the hard part is choosing what to get.   Do you have any suggestions?

You may have heard me mentioning Nicaragua on facebook, the reason why is because I am going.  This upcoming February I will be going to Nicaragua on a mission trip with my church. I am really looking forward to going, and this will be my first international mission trip. 

Many Sundays ago, I was told about the oppuritunity to go to Nicaragua....we seen photos and videos that our preacher had took when he and other pastors, preachers and men of God went to see about doing missions over there... and it just really broke my heart to see children digging for food at the dump sites... and the homes they lived in... where nothing but sticks in the ground with tarp around them... villages who had one out house for the whole village, and also one cooking site for the whole village... many villages didn't even have running water.  I just wanted to go and help...doing whatever I could... I knew that I was just  meant to go on this trip. 

After I had decided I wanted to go, I had prayed about it to make sure I was meant to go.  However I also had other things on my heart that I desired  more than going to Nicaragua.  I would have choose them over going to Nicaragua but God showed me that I needed to go to Nicaragua.  It was hard at first to give up what I wanted, what I desired although I knew it was the right thing to do... that still didn't make it easy. 
But you know what I got to a time where I realized that it was what I need to do, and I got so much peace from putting God first. 

We have many people going on this trip, so we have been doing fundraisers to raise money for our expenses.  So far we have raised some money but we still need to raise lots more.  This friday we will be having a dinner and auction at our church  (Marietta First Baptist Church)  if you would like to come and support us dinner is at 6pm and the auction is at 6:45pm.   The dinner is going to be a buffet sytle Nicarguan food,  $10 adult,  $5 kid  and $30 maxium for a family.  

If you do not live local or you aren't interested in the dinner/auction but still would like to Donate to help us go to Nicaragua .. I have a paypal button where you can send me paypal Or you also can make out an check to MFBC  and write (Nicaragua) in the subject line.   I can give you the address of where to mail it. 

But also I would love to have your prayers, as we prepare to go! 

Thanks Friends!

A Stash for Cash

Have you heard about Movember?   Movember is a month dedicated to raising awareness and money towards Mens health specifically for prostate and testicular cancer.    Men will start off with a clean shaved face and will grow out a stash.   Stash for cash...  This year my husband is taking part of raising money to support this cause.  I am proud of my husband for taking part and helping support this cause, its awesome!

My father in law has decided that if  my husband can raise $1,000  that my father in law will shave off his mustash.  This a big deal because my father in law has had his mustash and beard for 30years.  My father in law has been growing out his mustash and beard since he was a teenager and has never shaved it not once!! So not only will my husband be raising money for an important cause but we also have a goal to reach!  

This is Chandler's page    Please check it out,  I would love for you to donate money to help, or atleast to leave comments for support as Chandler raises cash for stash's!
