Thrifty Friday

Both of my boys are peacefully sleeping, so this mama has a few minutes of quiet time. And of course I use my time wisely.....blogging, that's wise, right? I would have blogged yesterday but the day was busy and got away from me before I knew it. I am a frequent shopper of thrift stores. I love the little treasures I always come home with and are so much appreciated by my loving husband, ahem. I am just kidding, he really doesn't mind my once a month trips to the thrift store, it saves him money. Here is what I happened upon yesterday....
an adorable winter, knit hat for my little man
(which he wore, and would not take off for quite a while)

this lovely basket in need of some refurbishing
it will fit nicely somewhere in our house

a mustard-colored bag for the fall,
which is making it's delicious appearance around here

"It looks like spring" scarf for my hair

this comfy and oh so cute skirt

jacobs' Christmas train tin
of course he wanted to play with it right away
There are always treasures to be found when thrift shopping. I know not everyone enjoys it, but I am perfectly happy to buy gently used and much loved items. Giving them all a new home and knowing they still have a lot of life left in them. I hope your weekend has been pleasant and relaxing.

Self Portrait

I love the creativeness of my childs' mind. He makes me laugh, cry, smile, and love him oh that much more. He decided to take his own photographs, as I like to call it, a self portrait. He expresses himself well. I love you little man, mamas' heart is overflowing.

A Call To Prayer


We are living in such perilous times, the enemy is seeking all of whom he may devour. The church is not exempt from the wiles and tricks of the enemy. Satan is on a rampage to destroy every and anyone he can that is trying to serve the Lord. As women who love God and desire to have more of Him in our lives, church, etc… we must stand and take back what is rightfully ours. The devil WILL NOT win and CANNOT win, when we make a stand through prayer to fight! Our fight is against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of the world and spiritual wickedness in high places(Eph. 6:12 ). As women, God has given us a special gift and calling spiritually to travail, we war in the spirit realm through deep intercessory prayer. We have a divine connection with Him and must access it daily. When there is war, there is noise. We cannot allow our war to be silent. We must let the enemy know we are here to fight and will not back down. We need the noise of war to break out in the army of God’s women like never before: the sound of prayer and praise. The noise of travail needs to rise from the camp of the women in all our cities and churches across the land as stated in Isaiah 32:9, 11, 15:
9.) - Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.
11.) - Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins.
15.) - Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high.
We must strip ourselves from the things that would hinder the Spirit from being poured out in our homes and churches. It is time as never before for the women to pick up the weapons and go into spiritual warfare and fight for our homes, our children, our churches, and the work of God.
