Hello there!

Hi, I saw this community and thought it looked interesting. I have 2 boys. Seth is my oldest, he just turned 4 in October and Logan is the baby, he turned 1 at the end of September. Remembering to keep God first in all things, including parenting our children is a hard thing to do. 

I can tell you first hand that when Seth started dumping bucket after bucket of bathwater on the floor while I was on the phone, the first thing I saw was a mess not a situation for a Godly lesson! lol But during times of distress, whether it be bathwater or mounting bills our first inclination should always be towards God. And, sadly, being as hard-headed and stubborn as I am, I haven't been able to shake that immediate first response of "oh great, something else for me to take care of." And it is not only stunting my walk with the Lord, but my children's.

That's about it for now. I think this is going to be a great community and really take off! Thanks for reading.

Been away for a while due to a new JOB (Hooray) that I needed so desprately. Also, My birthday and J's Birthday fall within a week and 2 days of each other so that was interesting plus Mother's Day snuck by me somewhere around there too. That's one of the hard things about being a single Mom no Dad there to take the kids to get you something to remind you that your suppossed to have the day off. So in my case I really didn't think about it until My Pastor's gave flowers out to all the Mom's. They are so sweet. So being that My Mom's husband doesn't cook and my Son well He knows how to make Kraft Mac&cheese so far, we went to Hometown Buffet. FYI don't go to Hometown on Mother's Day it is a Madhouse. I think we waited in line for 2 hours. So much for R&R but at least we didn't have to cook or clean or serve. So in ending I wish all the Mother's a belated

Happy Mother's Day!

I see this community is still quite premature but I thought I would jump on the bandwagon regardless! A little about myself: I am twenty, married, and have a little baby due in twenty-three days. I want to raise my little one with the love of Jesus in his/her heart and that is why this community caught my attention.

God bless,

We made it on the Dodgers not too bad.  Although, J loves the Yankees maybe next year. Friday He got the Honor Roll for the second semester in a row. The pricipal said if He gets it next semester she will have a special prize. I am soo proud of My Son. Too bad His cold hearted father can't take interest in His life. As much as this means toMe and I love My Son so much I can tell He wishes His Dad loved Him too. All I can do is pray for the Lord to fill that space in His heart for the love of His father.

Well Saturday was baseball tryouts. I don't think it went to well. J missed all the balls they threw to Him. He did bat pretty good though and the good thing is they do pick everyone but I hope he still gets on a good team. I think he was just tired. O well the season will be fun anyway.

Everyday is a new day. With everything that goes on I can't help but realize that there hardly anything new. It seems as though the originality in society is exhausted. I have not been surprised or impressed for an extremely long time. I wonder how this could be. I think maybe I have been desensitized from everything around me. I fear that my Son too may fall into this I pray the Lord continue to give him new dreams and new encounters. I pray he is given the opportunity to travel and explore things unimagined. I pray this for myself also, though it may be too late for me. Still I know that what I may have not been given I make sure to give to my Son that is know Christ and serving the Lord with all my heart. I know that he has a better chance in life than I did because he has a praying Mom.

 Not everyone has a second chance.

Running on Fumes
In March I moved in with my Aunt who has a room that is like a 1 bedroom apt. In July I lost my job and in August my Aunt decided to sell her house and move to Texas. Since August we have been preparing to sell the house, moving (to who knows where without a job), enrolling J to a new school, Church, looking for boxes and tape, finding a truck and help to load it, and the list goes on and on. The house sold by the end of August. Then last week my cousin (which is my Aunts oldest son who was not going to go to Texas)called and said that Him and his fiance will go on one condition: He marry her before they leave.    Ha!   escrow closed on the 29th. So there we were in the midst of it all planning . a wedding. Well we did it. Planned a wedding for 75 people making all the arrangements in a week. I spent forever finding J pants and a tie. Then I had to dig through boxes for his shirt and shoes. We finished decorating the hall around 3am. I pray that I make it through this with my head still on straight. My aunt has handled this extremely well. I pray that I am prepared when J gets married (hopefully not moving outta state at the same time)I can't imagine. This has been an experience for me. This has also kept me up for Too Many Late Nights. Well, they leave monday to Texas and then my life can go back to the normal craziness I'm used to.

First Post

I created this community as a trial run to see if it might spark some interest for others. I am a 27 y/o born again single mom of 10 y/o Johnathan. I have never really had many people to talk to or confide in during my ten years of parenting. I have learned sooo much since my son was born but, the most important thing I learned was that having Jesus in our life was necessary for survival in this world. I thank God for giving me a second chance at life and allowing me the Grace to raise my child with the foundation that he needs. I know we still have so much further to go and yet knowing the Lord is with us makes it less scary. My life has not always been with the Lord and I thank God for my salvation so I offer an ear to hear, a shoulder to lean on, and a word to hold onto for those times of joy and for times of heartache. If anyone wants to share please do.
