My two cents.

 I know, I know, I didn't post yesterday. My bad. I left the house at 9 and didn't get home till 4:30, so I was tired. Mom and I took Papa to Austin because he was leaving for Europe a didn't want to leave a car a the airport for 12 days :(. Sad to see him go... BUT I did get a Thunder Cloud Sub (If you've never had one, and your ever in Austin, Tx, it's a must.) AND a hair cut... so that made it better. You want a picture?? ;)


Before. Gosh my hair was long...

AFTER! I probably cut 10 or 12 inches off!

I have a piece of exciting news to share....

Each kid has a number on them for the order they were born in.... Becky has a 7 on her belly.... because SHE'S PREGNANT!!!! This is how she told us!!! We're all so excited :D

So, I read this article. I'd love it if you'd read it and give me your opinion. I COMPLETELY agree with the author on every point.

Moving on....
Today on Blogtember the topic is: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered. 

All my life I've heard the phrase "God won't give you more than you can handle.", but in the last year or so I've come to find... that's complete bull crap.

The phrase should be "God won't give you more than HE can handle.". I've been through a lot in the last few years. Some has been because of my own choices, and some has just been life; but I know that if I'd continued to try to handle it on my own, I wouldn't still be here today. You see, I've been in dark places. I've been suicidal. I've been depressed and the only reason I'm here today, is because God saved me. I didn't save myself. I wasn't strong enough. I gave up. I fell apart, and He swooped in and picked up the pieces.

I wasn't strong enough, and neither are you. GOD is though. He wants to desperately to help you. His yolk is light. Give your troubles to Him.




  1. Hi, this is great advice. Thanks for sharing it- I totally agree with your changed version of the phrase. I found your blog through the Blogtember link and am enjoying having the chance to explore some new blogs.

  2. Snap. I really like that. I've never really thought about that before but you made a really good point.

  3. I pretty much agree with everything in that article. It especially scares me to think about teens looking up to poor role models and girls feeling it necessary to use their bodies to give them value.

    Actually that first phrase you're talking about is pretty much straight from the bible, 1 Corinthians 10:13. My only issue with your second phrase is that God can handle anything, it's us that has the line.

    1. Amen.

      "For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

      6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. 7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.”[a] 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. 9 We should not test Christ,[b] as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.

      11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation[c] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[d] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[e] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."- 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 . I understand your point, but I believe that God is the way out so that we can endure whatever we have to go through. How else can people go through the death of a loved one, rape, divorce, depression, ect... and not be bitter?
      "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."- Philippians 4:13

  4. I think we're talking about the same thing in a different way. I definitely think it's God's help that we get through those things. The words in that verse: "will not let you be" is his help. Things will happen but he doesn't allow you to be swallowed by them if you look to him for help. Am I right or do you think we're talking about different things? Maybe I misunderstood you


Jesus loves you & I do too!
Be blessed, but also be a blessing.
