My heart is aching

Hugs and kisses and more hugs and kisses is what this mom has been doing the last 24 hours. There truly are no words to express the sadness in my heart.  I am only blogging about it because I feel so much sadness and I can't seem to write any other blog post until I let my emotions be heard on here.  

I wrote on Thursday night about how my daughter was being used on her school bus and I was very thankful and excited to continue to see God use my daughter.  Less then 24 hours after making that post a tragic event takes place that has ripped my heart apart.  As soon as I heard about the events at Sandy Hook Elementary I started to shiver in fear, I was about to keep my daughter home from her afternoon 4K program.  I did however realize that I am not going to coward in fear, instead I am going to make the devil shiver in fear from all my prayers. 

I leaned on this scripture yesterday: "for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control" 2 Timothy 1:7- and it will continue to be my prayer for myself but for our nation.   

I will continue to protect my children and lean on God to protect them since he will do a better job then me.  I will not live my life in fear and shelter my children because of fear.  I will however start to love more, help more, give grace more, and in general be the hands and feet of Jesus so more people can feel his love.

We live in a broken world that has pushed God farther and farther away.  My prayer is for us Christians to wake up and start to share the Good News of Christ in this hungry and thirsty nation.  God is near the broken hearted so I pray his spirit will cover them and the loving knowledge of salvation and forgiveness upon their hearts.  

Lets keep the families, students, the workers from police officers to first responders to the investigation team, and this nation in our prayers!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
