My Prayer Each Day and I Want My Boys to Always Know This

Dear Lord I pray for guidance in all the things I do. For peace, and faith to have the trust to simply lean on you.I pray for every heart I know and each I pray is with you. I pray for every move I make to teach my sweet ones of You.I pray for every thing I do to touch their hearts for good. I pray that every time I speak I say it as You would.The sad thing is I fail on these and each day make mistakes, but I pray for constant guidance and far better the next day.My prayer most every moment is to grow in you each day and for my family's focus to always do the same.I simply just have peace in knowing You are always near and always with Your angels placed around us far or near.I pray for long and happy lives with my family in your presence and then for thankful togetherness always forever in Heaven.In Jesus Christ Precious Name Amen
This is my nightly prayer, but noted in a poem. It's what I always pray. I want my boys and my entire wonderful family to know my love for them and h…

Mother's Day Gifts or Any Day Gifts That Make Memories

Image
Over the years we have created and found some wonderful projects for Mother's Day that have made some of my favorite gifts and memories! These are perfect for special days and any day you want to give a special gift honestly.    I wanted to share several wonderful projects you can do with your children as fun DIY crafts at home that make the very best times with them and just the most precious keepsakes.     These all only require time and a few basic things such as paint, paper, and your kiddos! Perfect gifts for Mom's Day!     My very first to show you and the largest piece I have and LOVE is the outdoor scene made with only the kids hands, feet, and arms covered in paint! Your kids will enjoy and you get a beautiful memory with the size of their sweet feet and hands all over it! This was my Mom's idea and I just love, love, love it! Notice they used handprints for the clouds and sun, foot prints for the green tree tops, arms for the tree trunk, feet for the grass, and …

Update and Transform Your Home on a Small Budget! Big Results forLittle Money!

This post shows several of my favorite, easy, and affordable makeovers that I have come across lately that I absolutely LOVE!!! Not a lot of cost involved and huge changes visually!! You cannot ask for more than big changes with little investment! Woo hoo!


   The first project is just a classic need in most homes... Various rooms quickly get slightly dated iun appearance and it quickly becomes VERY overwhelming as the home owner! Immediately our minds think that we have to change out the counter tops, the tile in the shower and tub, the cabinetry, and the list goes on.... These things quickly add up to figures that really become daunting when you know there is more than JUST ONE room that needs this kind of attention in your home.... Here is a perfect redo showing how you can make small changes and get big, beautiful results! Love this redo example and this site! Just look how fresh and pleasant that bathroom redo is with the change of a few minor and inexpensive elements.

Make Your Home A Showpiece !! Little Details that Count in Big Ways !!

I want to do everything on this list!! I am excited to share a bunch of finds that will add alot of charm to your home with little money spent. These little changes are small, but unique and smart features and additions that will set your home apart from the rest. You would not see these things often, but once you do you will not want to go without! 
   Check out how great this makes those plain and simple light switch covers look. Funny how my light switch covers were just fine until u saw this haha, but what an easy and inexpensive upgrade! So pretty! You go from a normal switch plate to lovely.... :) Love it!     Two approaches to achieve this and both cost very little... First option is an inexpensive or old frame you have setting around that fits your switches which is pretty easy to do because the sizes are comparable or you can use actual molding. The following link shows the redo with picture frames.  http://memyselfndiy.com/2014/03/03/diy-switch-plate/

Praying.... Now Ready, Set, Go

I feel like I've been spoken to so much today. I almost feel like God is yelling loud and clear, "Okay Mia, I'm speaking to you and asking if you are listening?!" It ha touched me so deeply I wanted to jump on here and share. Maybe this is a turning point, a new beginning to my life goals, the shaping of my future and my dreams actually starting to unfold... Maybe this is a learning experience and motivation to move forward with encouragement that God hears me, but may not be ready for me to start my new journey. I'm not sure, but I do know that very loudly and clearly He has lovingly spoken to me and shared signs with me since late last night. This is just the most recent touching experiences, but honestly my experiences since middle of September have been walking me down a path that truly constantly screamed God has His hands wrapped around myself and my lovely family.   Specifically to share today's experiences you would have to know that in hindsite I …
