Life has changed alot

Since my last post we have had a baby girl and talk about life changing. We have 4 children and I never knew how much you could love and care for these little babies. We have had an amazing journey with Bethani she has had a number of struggles just to grow at an average rate. She is healthy and happy and my walk any day now.  She has started really jabbering and sometimes I would swear she is saying Mama or Dada. She is growing finally although she is only in 3-6 month clothes at 9 months of age. Caleb has grown very fast and despite just turning 4 he is wearing 5t clothes. He has had his first tooth pulled due to hitting his mouth months ago.  Aaron is still growing but he can still wear a few 5t pairs of pants he is very strong and agile and I will soon be finding him a gymnastics class to increase his skill levels.  Kody is growing fast and is in his 8 year old clothes he is really bright and excelling in school.  I love my little family I am so so blessed.

Let it Get to you

In our society we are told to keep our emotions and our beliefs to our selves, so that we can tolerate the behavior of others and except those behaviors. But God has required more of us we can indeed show mercy and walk humbly with out compromising our truth which is Jesus Christ. So my challenge to you is to let it get to you, what others say and do. Show Christ in love to everyone we meet. We have to be willing to be uncomfortable and be courageous. WHY? Because it is required of us!
I choose not to offend because I do not want others to feel unloved by me. However here is a question, if I am so worried I am going to offend that I do not display Christ in all his glory am I hurting them worse than just offending them?  

As you are reading this you are thinking of someone you are afraid to offend or you are thinking she is out to get all those that do not believe as she does. So if you are thinking of someone know you can love and show Christ and he will make your offenses bring glory to Him. If it is the second question you are indeed correct I am out to get them, to seek Christ because scripture is specific about how we get to heaven and I want everyone I know to get there too.
My prayer is not just for this week but for weeks to come: Lord help me to love them through it help me to be light and salt. Help me to show people your path, not to bicker and argue about the things of earth, but to lift up and show others the way, because sin should not define us as people.  Our relationship with you should or lack of it. Help me to help others to not walk to you, but RUN to you. Thank you for making the sacrifice I can not imagine making to give me a way back to you. In your sacrifices name I pray, amen.
This is a video of the song courageous by casting crowns pay attention around minute 2:22 you might here a and see a familiar verse. Micah 6:8

Wanna help?

Hey all so recently our pastor has been really pushing us to share the gospel. I see this as a personal challenge, since it is something I do not do regularly or hardly ever in all honesty. As matter of fact I think other than speaking to youth for a few weeks on Wednesday night I think I can count on one hand the people I have shared with.  I thought I am living my witness and I am, however I have been convicted that is not enough.  I am embarrassed to sound like one of those in your face fanatics, and I do not have all the answers.  Plus I am not even really sure how to approach it. So I am trying to step out of my comfort zone and practice. How do I practice? I bring it up to the cashier at walmart. I say something like so have you found Christ? So far no one has rejected me in person, but if they say yes I don't know what to say. If they look at me funny I try to stray away and hope just that question has them thinking. My biggest issue is what to do after this. I mean I am not giving them any resource and I am not helping them so what do I do next?   I am going to try to practice more and find more people to try this out on. I mean what is the worst thing that could happen if I refuse to argue and just open a window a crack right?  What I am hoping for is some advice on this and maybe to inspire others to practice as well. I know I have very few readers but those of you that do happen by please give me some input.
Thanks Sunni

My Baby is turning 2

Caleb will be 2 on Sunday. He is growing fast and talking more everyday. We recently went to the stock show and Caleb loved the pigs. I have had 3, 2 year old birthday parties now and I always have a difficult time picking something fun for the cake, since 2 year olds love everything sometimes and nothing some of the time. I made Caleb this cake it was super simple two round cakes one Funfetti and one chocolate stacked. The Nose is a small cake made with a a Pyrex type little oven safe bowl. Iced and added skittles for the eyes and little triangles taped to toothpicks for the ears.  It was fun and he already has called it piggy and cow so at least it is close to discernible.

Yummy turkey left over Soup

Slow cooker recipe
1 1/2 c milk
1c flour
2tbs corn starch
1/2c water
1 small block of Velveeta cheese
2c Broccoli Normandy (frozen) mix
1c finely diced turkey
2c chicken broth
1/4 c diced onions
1/2 tbs garlic
3 tsp salt
2tsp pepper
2tsp favorite season salt
1/8 c sugar

in a small bowl
mix milk and flour until fully dissolved
in another small bowl combine water and cornstarch til fully dissolved

In cold slow cooker pour in broth, milk and flour mixer, sugar, and cornstarch and water. Stir together with a whisk. Add turkey and onion mixing again. Cube your Velveeta and sprinkle it in. Add your Broccoli Normandy. At this point it should look like this.

Now, you need to season your soup with salt, pepper, garlic and your favorite season salt.  Then, put just enough water to cover your veggies. Close the lid and turn it on low for 4hours. If you are a slow cooker watcher you can stir it occasionally with out fear of destroying.
 The final yummy goodness. You can stir in some cheddar before serving if you like.

My One Creative Skill

In the last 2 years I have been enjoying crochet. I have been doing it since I was little (just not very well). My Mom and Granny Wells taught me. Sometimes I think they did to keep me from talking so much. However, I have recently started playing with it and LOVE IT!

18-24 month dress
6-9 month dress for Cora.

I am posting my latest creation the first preemie dress I have made. I make dresses often God only granted me boys so I make these dresses for the ones I love and maybe someday a paying customer.
0-6 month for Autumn
This Dress has an adjustable empire waist line. The bow can be loosened or tighten like a draw string in order to accommodate even the smallest baby girl.
