Hi everyone~

I am changing blogs and my new address will be http://acupofcoffeeandhim.blogspot.com/ 

I will start blogging on there starting Thurs 15th at noon and this site will be deleted Jan 31st.










Starting the new year typically makes one reevaluate and set new goals. This year I am determined to make my health in all aspects, physically, mentally, and spiritually of utmost importance.

To keep me motivated and able to accomplish this “goal” realistically I had to evaluate what I fill my life with. My calendar is filled with going out to eat with friends, running to shopping trips with family, appointments, and other events I could not say no to. I looked at how I spend my days and found my days are full of over cleaning, nonproductive computer time, and some times those darn soap operas.

After I took this assessment of my life I decided I needed to decrease my commitments and those areas that will rob my time. By minimizing my to-do list and commitments I will now not have the excuse I can not take care of my health. I will have the time to ensure my husband and I are eating healthy meals, including exercise daily, and always having time to study and be with the Lord.

I am so motivated!

Happy New Year~



because we are doing this




We are stripping wallpaper off two rooms (my study and our dining room), redoing ceilings, ripped out a fireplace, stripping two bay windows, replacing all the lighting, running electric for a new outlet so I can have a wall for my desk and a workspace on the wall, and painting. Our goal is to have it done by Christmas day. I also start back to school to complete my masters in January so we are trying to get all projects out of the way for awhile.

If I don’t get back to blogging before Christmas I pray everyone has a Merry Christmas full of joy, fun and remembrance of Jesus.

We are participating in the Tour of Homes at the Internet Cafe and BooMama’s Christmas Tour of Homes 2008, Welcome! We are doing remodeling so only able to decorate with a little Christmas cheer but very thankful and blessed for the updating of our dining room and my study.

This is the foyer into out home. You would be greeted by this sight and actually Baylor our dog would be on the other side of the door waiting to give you a warm wiggle butt welcome.

Luke 1:46-55 (The Message)


 46-55And Mary said,

   I’m bursting with God-news;
      I’m dancing the song of my Savior God.
      God took one good look at me, and look what happened—
      I’m the most fortunate woman on earth!
   What God has done for me will never be forgotten,
      the God whose very name is holy, set apart from all others.
   His mercy flows in wave after wave
      on those who are in awe before him.
   He bared his arm and showed his strength,
      scattered the bluffing braggarts.
   He knocked tyrants off their high horses,
      pulled victims out of the mud.
   The starving poor sat down to a banquet;
      the callous rich were left out in the cold.
   He embraced his chosen child, Israel;
      he remembered and piled on the mercies, piled them high.
   It’s exactly what he promised,
      beginning with Abraham and right up to now.
