Company Girl Coffee

Happy Friday Everyone! 
 I would love to sit down with each and everyone of you and enjoy alittle cup o'joe. Hopefully this post finds all of you well and happy. I just got through watching the national news and man can't that just depress you beyond belief? I was watching all the folks in the middle of the country that are having to struggle with just having electricity and heat tonight and my heart goes out to them. We all take things like that for granted until they are snatched away in a second. I know when I see things like that I am humbled and thankful that our God is in control. When we see just a small portion of what is going on, He always sees the big picture ! 
      Our task this week from Rachel Anne is to have a housekeeping schedule. While most of us have the tendency to think, Yuck, I really have been searching my heart and realize that it's a blessing that I even have a home to get messy. My time with Him in the morning is spent in thankfulness for all the blessings in my life. I hope this thought lights alittle spark for you to spend alittle extra time in your day thanking God for all He gives us when we definately don't deserve it. 

1Cor. 23:30 They were also to stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord.
They were to do the same in the evening. 

Thanks gals for coming and have a blessed weekend!!

Company Girl Chat

Well this is my first company girl coffee. After waking up to a chilly start, I was determined

to work on my hair like Rachel and get the mop cut. I plunged out into the cold and came home
with a great feeling of accomplishment. It's always great to feel like you were able to complete
a task. That is why I love Rachel's site so much! Be sure and check out

Now the rest of the day is up for grabs. I think the hall closet is calling my name. 
 *I have saved way to many coats that I never wear(donation time)
 *Get rid of the empty boxes that accumulate in there for no apparent reason
 *Maybe find a stray flip flop that we have been looking for since last summer
 *Vacuum up those scarry dust bunnies that live in there

Well, i'm off. Enjoyed chatting and hope everyone goes to bed tonight with a feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT! I've gotten a great start!!!

Thank you Lord for health,energy, and a house to be able to clean up.

Pie in the Face!!!

Well all the Sunday School kids at church sure had a blast yesterday. They had the distinct

honor of showering Rob with a face full of cool whip. Boy what a mess and I could still smell the sour cool whip that continued to linger even after 2 showers. Yuck!! Thank you Lord for 
your servant who will do anything to excite kids about you.

The Computer Wiz Kid

Yesterday I snapped this picture of my 3 year old

ingrosed with his daily dose of Mickey Mouse cartoons. It amazes me that he is able to navigate the mouse around on the screen in order to find what video he would like to watch. He has such an amazing mind!! 
Bless him Lord with wisdom,discernment, and the desire to learn about you and not just Mickey Mouse.

Diet Yuck!!!!

Well, one thing that I would love to "RELEASE" for 2009 is the dreaded weight. I've jumped on the band wagon with my handsome husband and decided to go for it. I'm real excited because I think that I am missing out on so much because of the weight. I would love to run around endlessly with the boys without feeling like i'm about to pass out. That's just not a great feeling. So, if you see me then cheer me on, keep chocolate cake away from me and please tell me that I look the best that I have in years. I thrive on positive reinforcement!!!

High ho, High ho, it's off to school they go!!!

Have you ever been so glad that Holiday Break is over? I say,"AMEN"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Havens Boys

Many of you have requested some latest pictures of the Havens Boys. Well, your wish is my command. Here's a few that were taken the day after Christmas on our family vacation to stay at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine,Texas. 
The hotel is incredible and whoever gets a chance to stay there will love it. We went to Holiday in the Park at Six Flags and walked till we dropped. It's so fun there in the winter time because you can get hot chocolate, spiced cider, sausage on a stick and ghiro sandwiches, so this is not the normal things they offer in the melting summer's of Arlington. The roller coasters and most of all of the rides are open and they even have a snow hill to ride down. Be sure and check it out around next Christmas.

A Word

A good friend of mine introduced me to an amazing concept.

It's "A Word". You basically choose a word that represents 
you for 2009. It can be anything that you want to focus on, how
you are feeling, a struggle, just whatever. Well, after careful pondering
and trying to find that perfect word, I've chosen one. My word for 2009 is

It represents several things that I struggled with in 2008. I feel like the Lord is 
prompting me to release things that I have struggled with for years and still 
continue to even to this day. So Lord, i'm releasing those things to you and I plan
on having my word for 2010 to be "FREE". Stay tuned!!!!!
