Blaze Your own Trail

The Beginning of last week brought us some beautiful reminders of the wonderful Creator of this Universe. The ice sparkled in the sunshine on Monday morning, it was BEAUTIFUL!
Miss Haddy gave us all a good laugh as she played in the beautiful falling snow, It was an unusual snowfall for this part of the country. This snow was the type that you see in a snow globe, Gently and quietly it fell to the earth, not a breath of wind to be felt. (Generally the snow flies parallel to the ground because of the wind and the weather stations issue windchill advisories.) Temperatures were just below freezing, perfect for taking a baby outside. As Daddy and big brother made trails in the snow and tried to convince her to follow in their foot steps, she insisted on blazing her own trail, Whenever she came to a patch of snow already blazed by some one else she promptly changed direction to explore a new wilderness. So true to her personality. Very independent, my Miss Haddy.

I think she saw too much…

What I have learned about TrueLove


Happy Valentines Day week! Here is my wonderful husband and I 13+ years ago when we were dating. And I thought I loved him then! Here are some of the things I have learned about love over the years:

My Husband NEVER doubts my love for him. He knew I meant it 'Forever' the day I answered "Yes."
The easiest way to my husband's heart REALLY IS through his stomach!! Gary Chapman really should have included 'Food' in the five love languages.
Watch your husband be a parent and be prepared to fall in love with him in a whole new way!
True Love is not just fluttery, excited emotions, It's being committed to each other 'NO MATTER WHAT.
Marriage is work and takes lots of prayer!
You can read all kinds of marriage books by all kinds of authors, attend every marriage seminar in your corner of the world, But it's still Jesus that does the most wonderful work in relationships.
Without the Love of Jesus constantly being infused into my soul I have no True …

Take-away 3 rooms, Add 3 kids = CHAOS

I don't think we could ever experience a week like this past one. Happy Chaos is what it was! Daily I reminded myself of this: My Children/nieces will not remember this week by how clean the house stayed or what we had to eat. I didn't want them to remember this week as the one that Mom spent yelling at us to 'get out of the way', 'CLEAN-UP', and ' Go to bed'. ( These were the words constantly on the tip of my tongue.) I wanted them to remember this week with pleasant yet dirty hours spent making a huge mess INSIDE the house! My 3 nieces joined our household on Last Saturday night and will be staying with us for the next 10 days. So the ages of the 7 kids in the Zimmerman house these next 10 days are: 1,2,3,4,6,8&9. !!!!!!
