Memories

I can say since we have lived here in Texas our "fun" memories are very few and far in between.. As I sit here and try to think of any memories we(as a whole family) have had they are few.. When we first moved here my mother came for a visit and took us all to Sea World, Space Center, and to the beach.(all of us together)

I,myself, with the children have done some fun things, like take the children to the beach and to the Natural Science museum with my sister, but very few times with all of us together. Those are the memories that stick most with children.. the ones where mom,dad, and them are there enjoying life.

Last night was one of those VERY rare moments for us.. We went to the MLS Allstar game against Manchester United. Let me tell you my children were in there own man-made heaven.

We were surrounded by 70,000 other soccer fans, just like them

Of course before the game began they had what looked like a mini carnival going on outside the stadium with a bunch of blow ups, and a bunch of free stuff. The children got to get a picture with a Dynamo player Jeff Cameron- he is a defensive player.

We also walked around. I will share these scenes and environments are way out of our comfort zone. There was tons of alcohol all over the place, and with alcohol comes so many other things you don't want to see or even hear! Praise the Lord we were not out their long,because when we arrived was not long before the game was about to start.

We slowly walked into the stadium being herded like a bunch of cattle. We managed after 30 minutes of walking to make our way to our seats. Though the team we were routing for totally lost. It was a memory I know that they will not forget.

These are times I am most grateful to our Heavenly Father for!(memories that we will have to share)

Have you withdrawn your love?

These past two weeks I have been seeking Him. Wondering where He was in my heart. Wondering why I "feel" so distant from him. And I have come to realize that I have withdrawn my heart, my love from Him. He has not gone any where. He is here, walking beside me waiting for me to see, what I had done.

Confession time: I had withdrawn my heart from Him because he had not blessed me with another child. I go from being angry, to not understanding why this one prayer, which is in His Character.. (because He only answers prayers that are  in His Character- example if you pray make me rich (monetarily)Lord- he most likely will not do that because things of this world are  not important to Him) He has not answered. Does He even hear me?

There I have said it. I am a brat.. a spoiled selfish, brat! In need of His forgiveness, and in need of His love!

How many of you have withdrawn your love?

It could be from a loved one, not just the Lord. Those we are closes to tend to hurt us the most, and in reaction, in protecting ourselves, we withdraw our love from them.

I know my mom did that to me because of the pain I caused her in my teen years, she withdrew her love from me. She took care of me, but because she did not like me, and treated me like she did not love me.  I could tell she withdrew her heart from me. Have I ever gained that back? I am not sure!( I will let you know)

We all think we have a reasons for doing this, but where would we be, what would we do if God the Father did that to us??

Thank you for allowing me to share with you what Christ is doing within me!

I am alive and well...

Hello dear blogger friends.. I know things have been pretty quiet on here. Moving my blog to my own domain has left my blog kind of quiet. Not as many followers and commenters left me kind of unmotivated. I have lots of things on my heart lately, some things I have thought about blogging about. But life and responsibilities have kept me from sitting down and actually blogging.  By the time I actually have time- I forget what I was going to say. Has anyone had that problem?

The Lord has been laying lots of things heavy on my heart. Most of all is prayer.. How to pray has been my number one question... How do we know that Our heavenly Father hears our prayers? I know that sometimes answered prayer is obvious.. but what about prayers that are not so obvious.( Like for lost souls. ) What about prayers  you pray of protection and guidance for people you know are not believers, does He hears those prayers?? I have not recieved answers to these questions(except one how to pray) but I am still seeking Him.

My heart is to hear His voice and KNOW without any doubt He is with me in everything I do. That I seek His face in all decisions I make.. not go by "feeling" but by the Holy Spirit.. am I making any sense??

Well those are some of the things my mind and heart keeps going over...

What about you- what is heavy on your heart today?

Thank you for stopping by and reading

Returning...

June 24,2010

Well we are home. The trip home went so much smoother than the trip there. The skies were bright blue- hardly any turbulence. Arriving at the airport went pretty smooth. We were leaving around the same time as my sister, so we were able to spend a little more time together. (though it was hard to say good bye)

Since arriving I have no desires to do anything. My heart is aching ,of course, to be back in that beautiful country.







The simplicity of life there, the non congestion, purity in the air and the many friends makes me realize for the first time that I do have a place in my heart I call home. (Texas is not it)

I am grateful to the Lord for providing. For a place to lay my head, for a roof over our heads, and for a job for my beloved. As we all know we are to be thankful always! Life is so much more than survival. It is ministry doing the work of the Lord in all things. Here I am missing something..(have not quite figured out what that something is) but none the less I am missing something in my life.  May the Lord will show me or maybe not. All I know is that it is hard to continue and do what you need to do when you have NO desire to do it or do it in the place you are at....

July 1st- this post has been a week in the making.. time being limited and my mind not being able to focus on the words. How am I feeling this week? much better than last week. Working out with the children has given me something to focus on.(a distraction per say) We have slowly started schooling. I say slowly because we are not full force yet. Right now we are doing math. Next week we will start back with a full schedule.

July is here. What will it bring for the Sellers?  We all have lots of things going through our heads for the future. Paul thinking on college, and a job. Alex thinking on graduating, and a job. Maria is even thinking on a job. Everyone's minds are hopeful for future. Mine well - mine is stuck. My heart is broken over leaving Pa. I keep thinking about time. How limited it is? How it goes so quickly.. ( life is just a vapor that appeareth for a little time and then vanisheth away- that is what the bible says) Those word remind me that I only have one life to live. We are to live it full force for the Lord. Knowing that our lives are limited and we never know when He will call us home!

Have you all missed my blog randoms? would love to hear from you!
