The grass is greener on the other side….

…..something I tell myself constantly.  I do believe it but when your in the midst of the mountain to see the greener grass it takes a lot of the “I know i can, I know I can, I know I can mentality.”  Our family just got back from an amazing camping trip that we do yearly with our extended family.  It was peaceful, fun, energizing.  Only to come home to the mountain of “problems” slapping us directly in our face.  How can we have so much fun, forget about “real life” and come back to feeling its ten times worst. 

Well I have to give God some mega thanks for an Amazing Husband who will remind me that these trials are not forever and that they make us stronger.  I mean I do know that but i have to say he is way better at handling the initial shock to a situation than I am. 

That is exactly why I believe that God has given us the husband’s in our live to be the Head of our family, the leader of the pack!  If we as women can set aside our own wants, independencies, and any other thing this world tries to make woman believe they should be and let our men lead our families will be so much happier.  After two weeks of not having an “adult” conversation with my husband; we lay in bed and had the best conversation I can remember in a long time.  I am so thankful for a husband, who at times i dont think hears me, that listens to me. 

We are not perfect by no means.  But if we live in a marriage where we give give give to eachother we will love love love eachother. 

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Love Contagiously in Christ,

The Great I Am

Isn’t He the Great I am, I mean really, isnt He!
Verse 1
i wanna be close
close to Your side
so Heaven is real
and death alive
I wanna hear voices
of angels above
singing as one

chorus
hallelujah
Holy, Holy
God almighty
The great I am
Who is worthy
None beside they
God almighty
The great I am

Verse 2
I wanna be near
Near to your heart
loving the world
hating the by
I wanna see dry bones
living again
Singing as one

Chorus
hallelujah
Holy, Holy
God almighty
The great I am
Who is worthy
None beside they
God almighty
The great I am
The great I am

Bridge
the mountains shake before You
the demons run and flee
at the mention of a name king of majesty
there is no power in hell
or any who can stand
before the power and the presence of the Great I am
the Great I am
the Great I am
Yeaa

Chorus
hallelujah
Holy, Holy
God almighty
The great I am
Who is worthy
None beside they
God almighty
The great I am (x2)
the great I am
He’s the great I am
the Great I am

Integrity

The word “integrity” stems from the Latin adjective integer (whole, complete).

Whole, and complete.  That’s what I am with God walking side by side with me everyday.  He is who makes me Whole and Complete.  No other person or material can fulfil me as He can and does. 

I pray daily that i am a Mother of Integrity.  As a mom we have to ask for patience, guidance and wisdom daily 🙂 

in·teg·ri·ty/inˈtegritē/

 
Noun:
  1. The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
  2. The state of being whole and undivided: “territorial integrity”.

When trying to think of the name for this site i kept asking myself, who do i want to be.  A woman, as a whole (wife, mother, daughter, sister) full of integrity.  After reading the definition a few times i said to myself, thats who i want to strive to be.  It’s tough in this world but i know all things are possible with Him. 

Today we found out no christmas bonuses this year.  I got really upset and thought to myself that this was going to be the money we used to buy Christmas gifts.  I felt defeated.  I called my husband and he told me we will be just fine.  Always great to have someone like him around.  Always see’s the positive (in most 🙂 )   So now i contemplate and ask myself and you……is the money and the gifts really worth our salvation?  Our kids salvation?  That is a true gift, a gift for anyone and everyone who is willing to acknowledge and accept it.

So question…how many gifts are worth loosing ourselves over?
