The Angels are Rejoicing Right Now

That's right, folks. Our household is on fire right now! Sunday is going to be a most wonderful day. My beautiful niece and my wonderful son have been scheduled for several weeks now to go through Believer's Baptism. We have been so excited about this. But today made everything even greater. My husband has decided to also go through with baptism. He has been struggling with this decision for quite a while and feels as if a burden has been lifted. The preacher took him to lunch today where he confirmed that he wished to be obedient to God by following through with Baptism. Now, we all know that Baptism isn't what gets you into Heaven. Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior does, but in Mark 16:16 Jesus says, "Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved." But we do know that baptism is not a requirement for Heaven because Jesus saved the man on the cross right then and there. However, in reading scriptures today regarding just the subject of baptism, I relearned that baptism is symbolic for washing away your sins, being raised to a new life, and becoming more Christ-like. And boy, Satan is going to be throwing fits at us soon. And he knows just where to hit us. Trust me....I know where he hits me. In the same spot he has for the last 12 years. But together, and with the strength of our Lord who lifted us to victory, we will defeat him time and again. Praise be to God for the glorious work He is doing in this family!

Sorry I have been MIA for quite a while. There has been so much going on, some of which I will write about, others that I can't. There are not necessarily too many eyes that see this blog, but a few of the wrong eyes to write about certain things.

My Emmy started school. She was so excited about it, but now hates it. Who hates Kindergarten, you ask. I ask the same question. Well, probably the little girl that gets in trouble for exposing her rear end to the other girls in the bathroom, making them scream and tattle. Or the little girl that is too lazy to walk home and sits on the curb refusing to take another step. Yeah, the little girl that is driving her mother nutso!! But that her mother loves so dearly.

Bro Man had a rough start to 4th grade. He kept forgetting his homework, until I started making him bring home every book every day. A few days of walking with all those books, and suddenly he started remembering what he has to do.

I started back with more graduate classes. One is online, one is two days a week during the day. Now while the class is not a long class, it takes an entire day to drive Baby K to a sitter, drive the hour to school, sit in class for 1 1/2 hours, drive back to the sitter, drive an hour home. I hate being away all day two days a week.

I have also started selling jewelry. I am in the process of starting my little part-time income generator so I am having to book homeshows quite heavily over the next month. Hubby will be so happy when he reaps the rewards of those shows. I'm thinking I might do something nice like put up some money for Christmas (that he doesn't know about) and get him a new acoustic guitar that he feels he needs. He has one, but I would love to splurge on something that he just wants. But mainly the goal is to get some debt paid off so next year Bro Man can go to private school. I have not even discussed this with him, but he hits middle school and I don't know if I am comfortable with him going to the middle school here.

Facebook has taken over my life. There have got to be support groups for it because it is so addicting. I took a three day hiatus from it and it just about killed me to stay off for 3 days. But I get so much more accomplished during the day at home when I decide not to get on the computer.

Well, that just about raps up the night. Good night, blog buddies!
