Now I'm singing "Boys In Da Hood" song...LOL!

Posted by This Is Me, Doing What I Do at 9:30 PM
That is how long it's been since I've Blogged! Yes, my mouth is dropped. I keep saying I need to quite posting on Facebook and direct it here, but it's just so quick and easy to post there.
Well, we will see how well I do from here on out.....

I have been meaning to devote some time on here and blog ever since I was asked to look up the very first time I started Jesus Girlz but I kept putting it off. Today I'm not and if it takes me 3 hours just to finish this blog post, GOSH DARN IT, I am going to do it!
So our new study is The Best Yes by Lysa Terkuerst. I absolutely adore Lysa! Her teaching, her speaking, the way she explains things and opens your eyes to what God is teaching us through His word. She has become my Bible Best Friend (May not be a real person but to me she is!). Jesus Girlz have done 3 of her studies and she hits it on the head every single time!
I always tell my girls, "I am afraid to start 'this' study because I KNOW God's word is going to be tested in my life and I'm going to have to stand on the promises that are being given to me in the study." Sure enough, it never fails!
After looking back recently, I realized how much my life has changed through these studies. Growing in Him, learning His word, building a relationship with my Lord. I truly wished I would have blogged more so that I can not only go back and read where he has brought me from and what he has taken my family out of. But also so that others can come and read it for themselves.
It is my prayer that I not only complete another study, but that I can blog my way through it. Touching lives of those who may need that hope that is only given through Christ.
Am I terrified of what I am going to go through, ABSOLUTELY!
But, I trust Him. No matter what my family will face (because this is life and we are always facing something) He will get us through and we will grow stronger from it.
I also pray that through my testimony you can see that God is good! His grace is always sufficient for us, it's not what we do but what He did!
So, on that note...Yesterday I had to say my Best Yes and I was NOT happy about it! My BAFF called to see if I was busy. Her hubby was going to keep the kids for the day while she got a day away. Did I have "plans"? No. Not technically.
Reading the study and talking with God, trying to iron out my life and the things that I need or should be doing to make my family's future better. My plan is for Mon & Tues to hit Jazzercise at 5:25am then come home, get kids ready for school, take them to school, get home no later than 9:00 am and get working! So, yes, I should be working but I didn't 'HAVE' to.
I had to make my best yes decision. I wasn't happy about it at all! I want a break, I want to get away and hang out with a friend (I seriously NEVER do it! Last time was 5 months ago, one morning after Jazzercise I went to breakfast), I wanted to get away. BUT, I had to say The Best Yes and I had to tell her 'no' so that I could say yes to my work. In the end, I'm glad I did. I was able to make some connections and get some follow up information to get rolling on bringing in some new accounts.
We can always find an excuse as to why we should do something other than what we should really be doing. I have a feeling I am going to be kicking and screaming my way through the next few months until I learn to always make the better decision, in all areas of my life.
Here's to the first Best Yes Decision....Praying I have several more!
PS, it took me 6 hours to do this blog post ;-)

I have been an emotional boob lately! Trying to keep everything going on straight while staying a float and my head above water. So this is everything going on and I will break it down...
~Anthony's Senior Year Activities & Planning
~Jazzercise Training & Audition
~Relay For Life
~Jose's new adventure
~Mom...That is an ENTIRE blog post for itself!
~My new job and endevour
~Life in general (Kids, Home, Church)
Anthony's senior year activities: He has Prom coming up, Senior Awards, Grad Night, Senior Trip, Senior Dinner and then Graduation (Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa). This is all happening between now and June 4th. I still need to get his pictures done, announcements done and I'm planning his graduation party. I am super excited but then I have my moments I can't believe my baby is graduating. I know, some people think I'm over dramatic or whatever but this is my baby! I was 17 when I had him. I have moments that I look at him and am in awe that he is MINE! God blessed me with this kid. There are moments I want to strangle him and smack the crud out of him so he can realize the dumb things he is doing. But all in all he is a good kid. I want to give him an amazing senior year and graduation party. He deserves it!
Jazzercise: I received an email last night and started BAWLING! I am truly in disbelief that I am doing this. Yes, I've had my ups and downs with it. But this past week I met and trained with Tana and Jamie. The feedback and encouragement really helped. I feel like I am going to do this! No more trying, I've got this! When I read the email, I sent Jamie a message to make sure she received it also. Not to put Jamie on the spot but this meant a LOT to me! This was our convo:

Adriana had to do an assignment in one of her classes, she wrote a letter to Delayna. She shared it with me and instead of stashing it and loosing it, I figured I would blog.
I love you with all my heart. Even though you drive me bonkers, I will always be here for you. When you grow up you're going to want to have a boyfriend, wear makeup, want to cuss to fit in. You won't need to do that because you're going to be perfectly able to fit in. You say now you want to be like me, dress in my clothes, wear my makeup, have long hair, wear the same shoes but you need to express yourself the way you want. You will try your hardest to fit in with people that you think are cool. But your true friends will see that you are perfect just the way you are. You won't need makeup or to do your hair everyday. First because your going to damage your hair and then your going to dye it. You will make stupid mistakes but your mistakes will be what forms you into who you're true personality and make you unique from everyone else. You're an intellegent little girl right now and your so funny, crazy and so you. I don't want you to ever lose sight of who you really are.
I can't wait for you to grow up and see where you're going to go in life because you can do ANYTHING in your wildest dreams. You're going to discover who and what you will become and I can't wait for you to tell me how stupid you were with your friend and the first boy you kissed (because you can't tell Papa or Mama). But I'll be watching you every step you take when you grow up. Even though I may be 1,000 miles or 20 miles away I'm always here for you to hear you complain about how dumb someone is acting or what you want for next season. Anyway I just wanted to tell you that no matter what happens in life you're sister will always be here. No matter what I will always see you as my little munchkin that is learning how to speak spanish and your crazy styles of clothes you are wearing. Don't even lose sight to who you really are and never lose where you are from.
Because the most important thing you need to learn is how important your family is even though they will drive you insane! Always stay a happy, loving, intellegent, sweet and silly little girl! I love you with all my heart mamas and make sure your always making the right decisions for your future. I love you!!

A Mother’s love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.

Adriana came to Jose and I about 3 weeks ago and told us about an experin e she had over the summer.
