I am sure I have blogged on this very word before... Faithfulness. This is all I can think of these past few days is of our Father's faithfulness to His beloved. We are his beloved... I still have issues with being called beloved because I believe I am sinful, wretched, and undeserving... but when I think this the Holy Spirit that is dwelling inside of me tells me otherwise. It tells me of the Father's love for me and even though I can not wrap my mind around His never ending love... He is the Lover of my Soul and He is the only One that truly knows me and understands me.

So, back to His faithfulness... I sometimes forget about His faithfulness, but lately it has been consuming my thoughts. I think it has been consuming my thoughts because all the feelings I have been dealing with lately. If you haven't noticed I haven't blogged in a while because of all that is going on with my best friend, Lyndsay and her disease she is fighting (Hodgkin's Lymphoma), the hurting I am feeling from friends and family not truly believing in the One true God and the Word he made by breathing it, and my heart which is grieving... but with this word faithfulness has done something consuming and overwhelming inside of me.

The LORD has been so faithful to me and my family. The LORD was faithful to provide us $5000 when I found out of my cancer, He brought me through my disease and now I am stronger and continually growing in my faith, He convicted my Spirit to homeschool my girls and continues to show favor to us, He provided the funds to go to Israel and He held that promise that He made to me as I had to humble myself and ask for financial help, He brought us through a long waiting period as we had our house on the market for sale and he provided a house for our every need, and He continues to pursue me and love me through every earthly feeling I have, through every concern He tends to take from me so it will not burden me anymore... "For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:29. That is why I am here now to write about His great faithfulness.

He is in control of it all and I know I will never lose my faith and I will grow stronger in Him always! He never gives up on me and never forsakes me... so it makes me think... Why do I give up in Him? Why do you give up on Him? Why do we lose heart so easily? Why don't we put our full trust in Him? For all things? Why do we question who God is? He does not contradict himself and his Word is always true through the entire text. He is faithful in His love and how deeply He desires us... YES! He desires a relationship with you! I didn't know this until I was 24... He never gives up! Faithfulness... at its finest!

My Heart is Rejoicing

Hailee has been growing her hair out for Locks of Love for a while... we found out in August that it wasn't quite long enough so we waited. Hailee really wanted a feather extension, so I told we would get her hair cut in November after her birthday party (she had a Rapunzel birthday party... she had to have long hair) and we would get her a feather for her birthday.

Well the day has come and Hailee had about 7 inches that she could donate to Locks of Love for a child, who didn't want to be bald because of a disease. This day has made me very aware of Hailee's heart and how giving she truly is... I had a glimpse of her future and what I will be praying for here on out. I am thankful for this child God has given me...

Before... this gives you an idea how long it really was.

Half way there...

She was so proud.

Hailee loving on her sister.

What a precious child of God.

I have been in tears today just because of the sacrifice she has made for someone else. This is something she has been anticipating for a while and to give on the day she should be receiving just made me feel so much honor for being able to call her daughter. I got a taste of how our Father feels when we do things for Him and take ourselves out of the situation. I pray I will never forget this day and the feeling I felt throughout. Praise God for creating Hailee!

7 Years Old TODAY!

Today my sweet Hailee turns 7 years old! Can you believe it? Where did the time go? I remember going into labor with her and being over joyed that she was finally her with us. I held her almost 24/7 for the first couple weeks over her life because I was so happy and couldn't believe this child was mine. I love her so much!!

I am completely blessed! My heart is full of my earthly desires! Thank you, Lord!!!
