I'm not sure yet, they haven't said anything. Although I haven't been going to church bc it's too hard with my 20 month old. He would cry if I put him in class but won't sit in church.

Its good to be back!!! How is everyone doing?
My kids watched so much you tube on my phone that they used up all my data and I couldn't use the internet.

Happy July ladies!!
IDK what I'm doing in the daytime of the fourth but I know were having a bbq at church and watching the fire works.

So I went to the pregnancy center for an ultrasound, I couldn't wait anymore to know the gender. Its another boy! DD was sooooo mad, she really wanted a sister. Oh well, you gotta take what the Lord sends. I'm excited, tho.

No that's part of the problem they won't Allow anyone back there. I understand it's for security but I'm not just going to hand my baby over to someone and not see where they are going. I asked if I could just the first day and they said no.

I just had a talk with my aunt today about some very intense stuff. She told me stuff about her childhood. My grandma has been mean to all of us through the years and is a very dishonest person. She was and is verbally abusive. My mom and aunts had the unthinkable happen to them and their mother found out and never did anything. How is one supposed to just get over the bad stuff from their childhood.? I know with the help from The Lord. It's still so hard. She is not a Christian. I don't know if she has any faith. Maybe this is my oppurtunity? I didn't really say anything about God today. We just talked and vented to each-other. I figured for now that's what she needed. I have felt the ramifications of their childhood for years. I truly understand the curses our ancestors! I gave prayed and prayed that it is not passed on to my kids and it is stopped. I still have so much bitterness inside. Still drama happening today. Oh I could write a book!!

Thank you ladies!
I totally would not be ok with the church nursery not allowing me to go in with my child. Maybe plugging in to bible study or home groups would be a better option for the time being...

As far you aunt goes apeydef, the Lord is the only One who can heal and restore situations like that. Unforgiveness and bitterness are literally poison, so you've gotta deal with those. When I face memories or situations that have roots of unforgiveness, Its hard but I ask myself, "What good can possibly come by me holding on to this?" The answer is always the same for me. And to forgive we release it to Christ for Him to deal with, and only then does *anything* good ever come.

The Lord is walking us through some really intense stuff! The refining fire totally sucks! But its all for His honor and glory.

Thanks. Yes I had an awesome bible study where she even had someone to watch the kids set up in the basement and everything! It was perfect and then it ended.

apeydef-- That is not right about the nursery. Security? What about b/fing moms? I don't like it! Chunk is right try to find a home study or small study...

About your aunt I would pray for wisdom, listen more then talk, show love, and let the Lord work. If she will read the Bible that would be a good start. Healing takes time. Some times along time...I know!

Chunk- How are things at the church?

The funny thing is they let me back there to nurse him when he was younger. I don't nurse him much anymore so haven't asked in awhile but I know it doesn't make sense. It's a big church though that's why I think they don't want people going back there.

apeydef- I know how you feel. When my #2 was a toddler I would just go to bring #1 to sunday school. I would just hang out in the church with #2 . NOW I just hang with #3 LOL.

Not sure what I'm even saying. Just want to say I understand...

Our church is going well, for the most part. The guy we ordained as elder hasn't been coming much anymore ... so that's crappy. But some new folks are coming. There's a lot of growth and advancement for the regulars. The Lord is really refining us.
I believe the key to breaking generational curses and bondage is forgiving the past generations. We've been walking through all that too.

Apeydef- does your church have small groups?
And I understand too. There was long periods of time that I spent in the nursery too .

Chunk- good to hear that your church is doing well. I hope that the Lord keeps blessing.

apeydef- If is funny how church SHOULD be more family/baby/kid friendly but it does not really turn out that way. I would love to have a bible study for moms like LLL. That would be very cool!!

Starting today I'm really going to make a promise to read a chapter of the Bible everyday! So you ladies can hold me to that...I have been so busy that I really have not been read everyday.

We might be moving as well. We accidentally turned up the wrong road, so DH pulled in a driveway to turn around and the Lord told him that's our house... its for sale. The upstairs is nice enough to move into and all just live up there while we remodel the downstairs, which is gutted. But IDK how the Lord is going to work this out. I know He can, its going to be interesting to watch this play out.

I read Matt chapters 1 & 2. What stood out to me is all the angles. They are really moving the action in the way the way the Lord wants it to go.

Here is a question- Where is Matt 2:23 pointing? Which prophet spoke of Messiah being called a Natzrati/Nazarene?

I don't have a study note that references which prophets spoke of Jesus as a Nazerene. Usually my bible provides a cross reference, I'll have to check my other study bible.

Well, they took the house off the market for 5 months while we come up with the down payment.

Went to see The Fault in our Stars. OH MAN!!! It made me cry a river. Makes me want to live my life to the fullest!!!

It feels like Sat. Having my DH home makes me crazy. It is like having another kid. BUT next week is another VBS...this one does not have a mom's class.

OK! need to get to bed...
