1 God is our refuge aqnd strength, and ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see the works of the Lord, the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bowe and shatter sthe spear, he burns the shields with fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
We all need to remeber at all times that God is in control of our lives. He is always with us and knows what is best for us. "Be still and know I am God".

Well if losing weight was as easy as gaining it life would be dream! I got down 9 pounds and it toook 5 LONG weeks to do that and then in 1 short week I gained 3 pounds. It is just not fair!!! So rather than list you my excuses cause that is al they are I am back to the drawing board! I have such a hard time losing weight. I have tried so many times over and over and over and over again! I have tried every diet there is and Weight Watchers is the only one tht I have ever lost weight on. However I always gain it back. I really want to lose it this time and keep it off. I have never gotten to my goal weight and I would like to do that this time too. So as of today I am starting over again. Back to recording EVERYTHING I eat. I HAVE got to also start to really exersize and not just play at it. I have to get on the tredmill and walk for at least a half hour not just five or ten measly minutes! If anyone is reading this please pray with me for this time in my life. It is very very hard for me and I get very moody and frstrated. I do know that through all things Christ strengths me! I know to lean on the Lord and he will lead me also. Thanks for your help and for listening to me babble!

Tuesda Febraury 5th, 2008 in Jackson, TN was a very tense and scary night for my family and myself. We were home watching the weather on TV that eveing and the stoms were being reported. The report was to take cover at the time. When all of the sudden the electricty went out and I said "I think it is time to go sit down here in the hall way". I walked to the end of the hall way and sat down as did the rest of my family. Jennifer (my daughter) and I were sitting with our backs up against a bedroom door when we felt a breeze come under the door. I said "that was really weird I felt air come under the door like a breee" and Jennifer replied "I did too". She then moved a pillow behind her back. As we were sitting there listening to the weather radio hearing what was happening I said "This is very scary". We heard hail hitting the house loudly and the wind blowing by loudly and then it was just very quiet. It was very eary. Al my husband said that he felt the house shake. Soon after I said "can we get up now". The tornado sirens were still going off and the wind was blowing but it was much qwuieter than it just had been. We all got up and went out the front door first to see what had happened. The front yeard looked fine however when we went into the back yard we saw that our back gate had been swung open and our shed that had been behind our garage had been thrown up across the backyard. The items that were in the shed were still on the shleves in the place where the shed had once been. It was quite a scene to see. It was scary to know that the tornado or at least the very strong wind had come that close to our home. There was a second set of storms that came through just 3 hours later and we were all very thankful that it was just rain and thurnderstroms. The kids and I went out the next day to see the damage that had been done around us and there was some very extreme damage all around us to homes and businesses. The worst damage was done to Union University about 3 miles from our home. The dorms there have been destroyed and by a miracle all the students about 1200 or them were rescued and all are still alive. It is a night that we here in Jackson, TN will remember for years to come. It is a night that I never want to live through again. I praise God for protecing my family and many of our friends!
