Capturing Sacrifice

We can't do it all.  We can't be everything to everyone.  The only one who could gave up His life.  Sacrificing it all, so that we can be all that we are.
Make your sacrifices wisely.  Keep in mind that what you do is a reflection of Him because He is a part of all of us.  Do everything that you do with thought and effort to glorify your Father.
Sacrifices are everywhere, in many things, throughout your days.  Do you recognize them for what they are?
Imagine, a crown of thorns, ugly words, being denied three times by your own disciple and yet shedding your blood for those that hate you.
What are you willing to give up so that your Father might live on through you?  Any of it or even all of it?  Will you answer the call?

Capturing Daddy's Love

A post over at is the inspiration for this post.  Tonia Booker shared this post.  Then she asked for others to share their experiences.
So, what's my story of My Daddy's love for me?  I find myself constantly amazed at His unconditional love.  I know that that's what a father does, he loves you not in spite of your imperfections but because they make you, you.  That's just it, I'm not perfect, nor will I ever be.  I forget to clean up after my every little mess.  I don't keep up with the laundry.  I burn supper and show up late more often than not.
The most beautiful gifts He's ever given me are my children.  My husband and I didn't manage to keep rein of our sinful passion before marriage.  God doesn't make mistakes but He is great at surprises.  Our first born arrived in October 2000 three and half months after our June wedding day.  What an amazing blessing!!  Jayden was my first hint at the great things My Daddy had in store for me.  When we thought we were ready for baby number two God taught us another small lesson.  It was something along the lines of patience, but mainly just to trust in Him.  Our second baby dances safely in the presence of Our Father.  Lost to miscarriage in "February 2003 I learned a bit of what losing a child is like.  Amazingly we were blessed quickly after that and babe number three was due early January 2004.  I got to become a stay-at-home mom in the fall of 2003 enjoying time with Jayden while preparing for a new baby.  Jayden came early so I sorta expected that the next time around.  The only thing I said was that I didn't want a 'Christmas baby'.  I didn't want to miss out on the festivities of such a wonderful family focused day.  Then I learned that children will often do the opposite of what you want them to and got my first hint at My Dad's sense of humor.  Andrew made his arrival in the wee morning hours of Christmas 2003.  A Daddy's gifts are amazing and beautiful.  I just didn't realize how absolutely good He is at them.  We still thought we were in control of our plans as we made plans to expand our family again.  Again the blessing of babes and loss came our way.  One in early summer 2005 and one in spring 2006.  I was so sad but I knew that God had a greater plan for me.  Broken and healing I was learning to turn to My Daddy and His all knowing love to handle my days.  Daddies love their children, through the good times and bad, happy and sad, loving them through it all.  Once upon a time I went through my days amazed at the families with kiddos aged so closely together.  I was always thankful my blessings were spread apart.  Then I was blessed with twins.  Mack and Madi came in March of 2008 bringing with them lessons and experiences that only a Daddy knows I need.  After their amazing arrival and adjustment as a family of six from four we (still) thought we were in control of family planning.  Oh, Dad must have loved laughing at us.  He knows that some learn their lessons quickly and others need reminder upon reminder that we're not in control of this earthly life.  When asked if we're done having kids I've learned to say 'only if God thinks so' because, yes I finally learned.  Huh?!?!  See we have this amusing little comic relief blessing that came in the form of a ornery little boy in May of 2009.  A quick 14 months after M&M.
Wow, My Daddy loves me!!  In less than ten years I had experienced more than I ever dreamed.  Blessings that included gifts of squalling babes, the pain of loss, the love of connections through all of this.  Oh, yes, my Daddy loves me.  He spoils me daily when I but take the time to look around and see all that He's done for me.  I know I wouldn't know the value in having my babies without feeling the pain of the loss of my babies.  I wouldn't know how to recognize all the beauty in my days without having seen the sadness that comes in them too.
Oh, Daddy, how you love me, even me to give me so much.  I couldn't ask for more than what I already have, but I'm learning that you have so much in store for me and I shall simply prepare myself.
Daddy, I love you!  Thanx, so much, for loving me!!

Capturing Strength

Philippians 4:13 NLT - For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

I only need to remember these words to get me through my day.  There is a song sung by Matthew West that includes this verse and words that will lift me up no matter how I feel in that moment.

Strength is not something I can capture, not really. It's not something I can grab onto and hold in storage for when I need it.  It's not something I can stock up on at the store.  It truly is only something I can get from My Father.  Turning to Him in my weakest moments and getting the strength to get through from Him.  Capturing strength is really just capturing my connection to Him.

Capturing Me Time

I don't do it often.  Occasionally I find a way to schedule a few minutes, hours or even an evening of 'me time'.  I love a hot shower taken alone, with no one sitting on the bathroom floor waiting.  Better yet is a soak in the tub with no knocks on the door.  Great fun is time out with friends laughing.  I'm even happy to share my 'me time' with my husband.  Playing cards, games and sharing laughs with friends without kiddos around to ask if they can join in is a much welcome reprieve to have that reminds us we aren't just parents, but adults with friends and lives too.  Tonight I spent a few hours with a girlfriend at our first EBW Fit Event.  Meeting new women and sharing laughter, knowing that it is good to remember how to take care of the "me" part of "women".
Ah, yes, me time.  Thank you Lord for reminding me that the best way to take care of my family is to take care of me!  Sometimes I need a kick in the tush for a reminder, I'll always appreciate it though!!

Takin' Five on Friday - Relevant

Just as Gypsy Mama requests, I am here.


What is relevant?  It's a big word that I don't use very much in my little world of children, chaos and family issues.  I don't have time for big words that I have to explain.  I don't have time for a phone that doesn't want to upload blog posts for the last two days.  They were good, even if I must say so only myself.  Maybe eventually they'll load, maybe not.  It is the 28th of October so I've been here attempting to capture words for 28 days and have been surprisingly successful.  There have been failures and glitches leaving me with days and words unspoken and uncaptured.  Grammar check that!
Anyway, what is relevant?  Does this matter right here, right now?  Yeah, I guess these short quick sentences capture my day, maybe even my week and give me something.  Something to look back on someday when I wonder what in the world I was doing, thinking and being 'at that time'.

It's all relevant, really.


Have a blessedly beautiful weekend!!

Capturing Fall

A delightful time of year.  Piles of leaves heaped for jumping into.  Trips to fall festivals and pumpkin patches for hay rack rides and making family memories.  The scent of burning leaves drifts through the air and the lure of gathering around bonfires is strong.
Take a drive across the county or state and see the rainbow of fall colors.  Leaves in every shade of gold, orange, red and brown.  Walk the hiking trails listening to the crunch of leaves beneath your feet and keep watch for foraging animals such as deer.  Animals out and about preparing for the winter ahead.  From summer and a time of fun in the sun to fall and it's crisp days of warm afternoons and cool evenings.  A change of seasons, so enjoyable!
Fall brings with it the excitement of hunting.  Gathering as a group to track pheasant or deer and bring home meat for the freezer.  A time to leave behind the office or factory job and spend it on a bit of recreation that feeds the soul as well as the stomach. 
Ah, wonderful fall!

Capturing Harvest

Harvest is all around us.  Bean fields are smooth and barren, the stalks of standing corn shrink in number daily.  The ground is getting tilled, the gardens have been cleared of their bounty.  It's a wonderful time of year.  I try to remember that this time of 'harvest' is not something that happens only a few weeks a year.

Galatians 6:9 NIV - Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Physically there is one harvest a year of some specific crops.  A bountiful harvest that is payment for work and effort of sowing and taking care over that responsibility which God has given us.
Sometimes I need a reminder that the sowing needs to be done daily by harvesting God's good words captured in the Bible.  In turn I shall sow the good news of His love to my children, family, friends and anyone that I meet.
Ah, capturing harvest.  Seeing the good news of His love all around me.  Counting my blessings, so grateful that the harvest of life is bountiful.

Capturing Companions

A short and sweet one here tonight.
Nothing like love between a boy (yes, he's in pink jammies) and his kitty!  I love when my animals curl up in my lap or lay on my back as I sprawl in bed.  Nothing was as cute as this though.  My animal companions are my best friends, the ones there for me through thick and thin.  The love an animal shows me is of the purest and truest love.  Similar to that love our father shows us.  DOG is GOD in reverse.  DOG, a man's best friend showing devotion and unconditional love just as GOD does.  A dog needs us to feed him, care for him and be his leader while God asks us to let Him feed us and care for us, leading us through all of our days.
I couldn't ask for more.  God is so great!!

Capturing Failure

It wasn't an epic failure, I was likely the only one that noticed it.
A failure to post as part of my 31 days series.  I've missed a few, I've participated most days but I know of at least three that I've missed.  A failure all the same.  Does that mean I should quit, give up and walk away?  Nah!  It means that I pick up where I left off and go forward anyway.
Here's what I did yesterday instead of taking time to write.  Laundry, clean-up, a batch of deer sticks, dishes, vacuum, laundry, painted a sunset on a billboard (partial picture above), cleaned up mess from the painting, picked up a 'new to us' TV from an uncle, dropped kids off at grandma's for the night, a meeting for the school bazaar, distribute flyers for said bazaar, back home, laundry, showered and dressed, supper out with DH, and off to the home of friends for cards, games, lots of laughter and plenty of memories.
So, no I didn't write, I failed at a chance to capture words but I guess, well, life happens.  I'm back today.  Feeling inspired enough to possibly post twice, depending on how the afternoon goes and that is enough for me!  To be here.
Try, try again.  I don't have to be perfect because God loves me in all my beautiful imperfection.  Falling down, getting up, skipping steps, forgetting to follow through, waking up late and whatever other flaws that might show their wear and tear today.  His grace is sufficient for me, even me.
 AMEN to that!

Takin' Five on Friday - Capturing Beyond

Five minutes of thoughts, just as Gypsy Mama asks me to.


Beyond, the here and now.  Beyond this moment of life.  There is a whole world and life upon life happening out there.  This is what I have a part in, an effect on, the place where I have an opportunity to do something.  I do what I can here because beyond our comfortable little circle of home is life that we will encounter and things that will be out of our control.
I do what I can here to prepare myself and my family for that world beyond our here and now, so that we can handle that which is thrown at us.  Teaching them and myself to lean on the Lord in all ways for all things because that just might be the only constant we have from here to there.
Remembering He is here with us at home and also with us beyond these familiar routines.


Psalm 147:5 NLT - How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!  His understanding is BEYOND comprehension!
Oh, what comforting words are those!!

Capturing Cheer

Proverbs 17:22 NLT - A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.

Have you ever been drawn to the cheerful person in the group?  The one with an easy smile, sweet inspiration in her stories or an uplifting air about him.  They come in many forms.  A young child, your best girlfriend, your dear husband, the adorable older lady next door, your lovable great aunt or a courageous grandfather.
It is also quite true that when there is someone broken around that drains us of our own energy we will withdraw from them.  I know I set limitation on the relationships with the people around me that I can only 'take so much' of.
What I never realized until reading this verse is that there might be occasions where I'm the cheerful spirit that people are coming to for light in their dark, help with their loads and a shoulder to lean on.  I have several relationships that I'm willing to be there for daily, and yet there are those that I tend to keep my distance from.
I want to be that cheerful spirit willing to be there, willing to connect and support, willing to love and be the medicine that others are sometimes looking for.
What a beautiful verse!  Exactly the encouragement that I needed in this time of change in my life. 

Capture cheer - a new item on my to-do list!

Capturing Comfort

What is comfort to you?  A warm blanket, a cup of coffee, how about a hand to hold?  Comfort comes in many forms and can mean a great many things to different people.
It is fall and here that means cooler weather, warm sweatshirts, fleece blankies, hot chocolate, oatmeal and ideally for me a crackling fire.  Sometimes I get that comfort I need in a quick hug, a long overdue conversation or even a good book.
There is one place I can turn to for comfort no matter the day, time or event.  My Father's arms.  God is there for me in all of this.  He always has a shoulder to lean on, a hand to help me up and a ear for listening.  I haven't always known this comfort was available.  I was not taught at a young age to take my cares to Him.  I have walked many long lonely days in my time.
I'm not granted easy, carefree days for the rest of my life, but I am guaranteed that I never have to go them alone again.  I don't have to wonder "Why?" because I know that He is working out all things for the greater good and the bigger picture.

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV - For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Yeah, I can take comfort in that.  I can set out in whatever I do with a knowledge that it will all work out and come together.  It may not work out according to my plan, come together as I initially expect but 'Thy will be done' is all is really need to remember anyway.

Capturing Love

1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV - And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

After living with this verse in the forefront of my mind for years I'm just figuring out that it is more or less my life verse.  The MYM - ITA fall challenge included this as one of the verses to study, and so I did, last week.  I wear three rings on my left hand, the first says FAITH, the second says HOPE and the third is my engagement/wedding set from my husband, the one that reminds me of LOVE in all various forms whenever I look at it.
This verse rolls through my head at least once a day reminding me what my family and friends need from me.  Reminding me of how to treat others and live a Christ centered life, doing all that I do in my best effort to glorify Him.
Going faithfully, sharing hope and doing it all with love - for Him and all He has done for and given me.

Capturing Beauty

A quiet moment of peace this morning.  Capturing this moment that I've been hoping to get all summer.  This grand old barn has been standing majestically as a landmark on this spot here for years.  His days are numbered, his shadow changed this spring as he was stripped down to this unique silhouette, his boards harvested to give life to new works of beauty.  He was once a grand barn a shelter to hundreds of animals, storage for their feed, a landmark to find a friend's home and the core of a farmstead.
Since he will soon be gone I'm happy to capture this picture of beauty for all that he was and even still is.  A blessing from the Lord, a barn, yes a beautiful gift captured in a beautiful moment of good-bye.

Capturing God and Family

Around here that's what I try to dedicate my Sundays to.  The one day a week that I can turn my focus toward that which really matters.

Our Father - God, Creator and Lord!
My family - husband, children, parents, grandparents and all the extended ones too!

Time spent in fellowship worshiping Him.  Time spent enjoying good meals.  Time spent in prayer.  Time spent laughing.  Time spent praising Him.  Time spent connecting.  Time spent counting blessings.
Time spent in the presence of God and family, yes the best time of all!

Takin' Five on Friday - Capturing Catch

Capturing Catch, hmm this will be interesting!


Catch - I think of fishing and the haul that you take on a good day and the quiet you'll get the next.
I may not go fishing daily, I'm lucky to go yearly these days but I'm coming go realize that I have an ultimate catch of some kind every day.
A catch of memories while watching my crew grow up daily.  A catch of laughter as we have a tickle war.  A catch of gratitude as we each count the beauty of our day around the supper table.  A catch of connection as we clean up from a meal and share chatter.  A catch of love as I sit here and reflect on just how full my house is.

Yup - the ultimate catch of my lifetime - God and Family.  Don't need anything else!

Capturing Rest

It's been a day!  Filled with cleaning, reorganizing, preparing.  My mom is moving in with us soon.  After 31 years of marriage my parents (finally) decided to go their own ways.  Several months later the divorce decree is signed and they finally can make strides to start over.  Starting over is not easy for either of them as they had managed to accumulate a lot of debt.  So now, as it goes I hope that they are finding a new solid path and peaceful days.  On the other hand I know that they are struggling to get by.
What does this have to do with rest?  Plenty.  I am preparing my home that already shelters the chaos of seven to include a grandmother that tends to indulge my kiddos every whim if she can.  Sitting on the vouch tonight capturing these words and pondering the possibilities of the coming weeks is rest enough for my weary soul.  I have come to the conclusion that this is my way of serving my mom right now.  I would say that this time here next to my husband, babes sprawled across my lap is a bit of beautiful rest for me.  Rest after sorting a storage room, thumbing through old pictures, flinging garbage and stumbling onto sweet treasures forgotten.

Rest that is a gift from God that I get to enjoy here and now. 
Matthew 11:28 NIV. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Ah, the gift of rest, I will take it however I can get it.  Capturing moments here while my burden is lifted by the One willing to carry it for me.

Capturing Connections

It only took me a month, but I did it!  I got the letter to my grandparents written.  Not a handwritten one, but an solid update on the seven of us including a few pictures.  So often these days we depend on technology for our connections, a quick phone call, drop a few lines into an email, a status update in facebook, a few words twittered and text talk.  When did you last write a letter or drop a 'just because' card into the mail for a friend.  Even Christmas greetings are generally reduced to a mass printed picture postcard and form letter.
Take time to capture connections today.  That's where the real memories come from.  It's those letters you can pull out years later and reread, reflecting on days gone by.  Take time to go on walks with your husband, child or friend.  Go out for lunch having laughter for dessert.  Get away for a weekend of connection, a fay or two to reconnect with someone special.  We all need these soul deep, heart strong bonds.
The most important connection like that to make is the one with Our Father.  Taking time to read His words in the Bible, praying and talking to Him as a regular part of your day.  Connecting with Him so that you can hear His words, feel His love as He walks with you and see the light He is shining upon your path.
Go, capture those precious connections!

Capturing Now

Sometimes it's hard to be in the 'here and now' but it is worth the effort to try.  The 'now' moments only last seconds, at most minutes each day.  The moments of cuddling on the couch with three kiddos on my lap.  Conversations with growing boys about life and living.  End of the day prayers, a circle of hands held tight.
Capturing Now in my days is what reminds me to be thankful as these are the things I'm thankful for.
Even these words are enough to remind me to capture the before bedtime giggles.  Brother and sister 'snapping' their fingers and sharing hugs, kisses and love.  Two little people enjoying simple entertainment and each other.
Endless blessings and beautiful moments of life right here, right now.

Capturing Laughter

It's the little moments that make a day great and a life spectacular.
While at the lawnmower races today there were large spans of time that we waited patiently for the next heat race to be ready.  A great many people can wait patiently during these times but a pair of three year olds and a two year old tend to not be so patient.  They started a rousing game of keep away.  It went from us chuckling at them running circles around our cluster of lawn chairs trying to get 'the hat' to involving five kids, two adults, five hats, tackling, tickling and lots of laughing.  I do believe we were entertaining the whole crowd, well at least a portion of it.  ;0)
Those are the golden moments!  The priceless ones that I enjoy capturing and reflecting on days later.

Takin' Five on Friday - Capturing Ordinary

Oh so sweet it is to take this time.

Gypsy Mama and her five minutes Fridays tied together with 31 Days.


Ordinary is the every day, laundry washing, drying, folding and stacking.  Inhaling the sweet fresh air of clothes off the line.  The sanity saving routines that mean we don't settle in for the unwinding of the day until after the dishes are done.
The ordinary of creating new morning routines that include waking early, spending time with My Father, reading His words and starting the day long conversation with Him.  Learning how to work in a bit of healthy movement and eating a breakfast worth my time too.
My favorite ordinary is the simple prayers when we connect hands and whisper prayers.  It's also the quiet counting of gifts each day, reflecting on all to be thankful for.
Hugs and kisses, sticky fingers, dirty chocolate milk glasses, toys sprawled across the house and yard.
The simple reminders of a beautifully blessed life.

Capturing Peace

Okay, so this is kinda difficult to capture words on every single day.  I barely have time to get laundry folded much less write.  Still I've done better than I thought I would.  :0)
Today I'm content to capture some peace while I'm here.  My little girl has some problem teeth and to best handle fixing all those cavities we have opted for a surgical type procedure.  That way they can use general anesthetic to send her to sleepy land and fix all of these issues at one time.
It's not a huge procedure, but just the same it is.  We are so blessed to have kiddos that are healthy and we haven't had much need for a huge health procedure of any kind.  The best part of all of this is seeing God's hands over the past week.  I have issues with dentists, get nervous for my kiddos when they go to the dentist and yet this is so easy to handle today.  We discovered her problem teeth nine days ago, visiting with the pediatric dentist, getting a physical and having this procedure set up and handled in just over a week is amazing.  I know God knew that I would've been a nervous wreck if I'd had to wait the customary 3-4 weeks for an opening for her procedure.  So He gifted me with a crazy week that I was too busy to worry.
Sitting in the admitting area the two of us just relaxed and prayed.  I prayed for peace for Madi that she wouldn't be scared and that everything goes smoothly and swiftly.  The dentist and anesthesiologist were beautiful women with the very utmost thought of Madi and her comfort today.  I thank Him for blessing us with this experience.
I sit and pray and think of the people surrounding Madi and that they all feel the amazing love of Our Father today.
Ah, capturing peace, what a wonderful experience!

Capturing Memories

A day late, but I do have words captured for Monday’s post.

Eleven years ago I was given an amazing gift.  A son.  A two weeks early, already keeping us on our toes, little boy.  I was in some form of labor for probably two days before I was sent to OB after our last Pre-Birth Class.  I had NO IDEA.  Clueless about labor, yup that’s me.  Friday night was a group of us driving three plus hours so that we could host a paintball tournament for a group of college students.  All through Saturday I was uncomfortable, but it was a LONG day, so I figured I was tired.  The trip home was horrible.  I kept a pillow in my lap because the seat belt was making every bit of miserable worse.  Monday I went to work.  I remember being SO annoyed because all of my co-workers kept asking me if I was okay.  I kept saying “I’m fine” and “No, I don’t need to go to the doctor, that will be in a couple of days”, little did I know what really was going on.

The last eleven years have been crazy amazing.  I succeed and fail in a great many ways on pretty well every day.  I wish I was better at this than I was, but I know that with God by my side that everything will turn out just fine.  I’m doing the best I can, in the best way that I know how.

Capturing Time

Do you ever have that moment that you wish you could freeze?  That time of day, day of the year that you wish you could bottle up and re-live over and over?  Time, a simple little thing that shouldn’t be so hard to handle, but sometimes it’s the biggest struggle of my day.

Not enough minutes in the day to get everything done.  The to-do list is always so long.  So leave the to-do list on the counter and go take a me-time-out.  Go jump on the trampoline with the kiddos.  Go sit in a lawn chair in the sunshine on a beautiful Indian Summer day.  Help your little one into the swing and push, push, push and soak up the happy giggles.  Sit at the Hospice House while a loved one waits to enter the gates of heaven.  Pray for a friend that is undergoing a surgical procedure today.  Take the time to do these things because this is what glorifies Our Father.

Take time to capture these moments in your heart.  Capture these times because each second is gone in the blink of an eye.  Every second holds the possibility to change your life drastically.

Take time to live.  Live out loud, live in love.  Love for God. LuvNHugz - SupportNPrayerz DV-NMV

Capturing Us

Just us, taking a moment to capture some memories.


Capturing Words

Okay, since linking up to them rarely works for me, here is what I can do.

Here you will find Jess's welcome post and links to everyone else participating.

Day two of Capturing Words.

It’s simple really, I want to take more time for me.  Do I have time to take a walk, relaxing bath or go out on a daily, ha – weekly, basis?  Nope.  I’m getting better.  Getting up in the morning focusing on My Father, spending time with the words in His book and conversing with Him.  Getting up before the rest of my house wakes is going a long way to finding time for me.

My hope with committing to 31 Days of Capturing Words is that I will find a few moments each day to capture those moments in life that are fleeting, but that by writing them down are words of remembrance that will be here forever.

Even this, now, these quick sentences I type are now here for me to look back on.  Reflecting on my time as a MYM AC and the gals in my group that are enjoying this experience with me.  Looking back and recalling those two crazy weeks when we realized how horrible Madi’s teeth were and not only did she have cavities, but need a surgical procedure to properly fix and handle those issues.

It takes time, and effort with the process that I have to use to do this, but it’s ALL worth it.  The capturing of my faithstepsnfootprints.  Oh, so worth it!

Taking two minutes or twenty to capture my words.  Several others are doing similar things, their 31Days of their choice and I will attempt to link up with them at some point.  Promise.  That will take a real computer and internet connection, so no guarantee that it will be early in this process.
This isn't much but it's my start and I will be back, you all can be my accountability friends.
