Today's Daily Word: In the Now

I live in the now and draw from each moment all the good it holds for me.

My future holds a field of infinite possibilities. My past holds the things that have already happened, whether they brought joy or challenge. But this present moment is the only time I can create my life experiences and my relationship with God and others.

In this now moment, I keep my thoughts positive and choose words and actions that invite others to join in a world of peace, abundance and harmony. Centered in God's presence within me and everyone, I draw from each moment all the good it holds.

Aware of the unlimited possibilities of the future and mindful of all I have learned from the past, I give thanks for this now moment.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.--Psalm 51:10

I had a Happy Valentine's Day: Fun With Family

Christian and I went to church.  We then went over my Daddy's house and hung out.  I got a new *red* Nissan Pathfinder in Dec. 2009.  Everyone wanted to ride in my new truck.  I drove everyone to Ruby Tuesday's to eat.  This was my daddy's 1st time *ever* driving in the car with me.  I always ride places with him.  We all had a shrimp appetizer.  Me, my stepmom and my son had a shrimp and fish dish.  I think it was called New Orleans Seafood.  My daddy had a baby back ribs dish.  The food was yummy yummy.

Here are some pics we took hanging out at my daddy's house:

Chuck E Cheese and Shopping Fun 02/12/2010

The storm is over.  The sun is shining.  Christian and I were anxious to get out of the house and have some fun.  We went to Chuck E Cheese, Michael's, Ross, and back home.

When we were at Chuck E Cheese, Christian saw a little girl that was in his Karate.  Christian dropped out of Karate but the little girl was still going strong.  I wanted Christian to go but he didn't like it.  You know what he said at CEC.  He said "I don't need to go to Karate.  God is my protector."  My 6 y/o shut me up.

Also while at Chuck E Cheese, we saw 2 ladies from church:  Nakisha and Marie. Christian was so excited when he saw his friend Daryl from school.  They had a ball playing games and running all over the place.

Here are some pics I took at CEC.

*Sweet Dreams* and My Sketch World Feb. 10th Sketch-A-Thon

The card sketch inspired a layout not a card.  This is my co-workers baby.  I am making a scrapbook for her.  MSW sketches have inspired me to finish up her scrapbook.

Vellum journaling reads:

Sweet Dreams,
sleep tight,
we love you,
good night
