Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI #StarWars #TheLastJedi

My son is now into Star Wars and so we are now on disc 4 of the series.  I've decided that since I have no idea what it is and even how to have a discussion with him about it, I might as well watch with him and of course, he is delighted. And of course having to do things your kids like even if you don't. But then again, I do not really mind it and I get to spend time with him and something he likes at the moment. He's already seen the Lego versions, so he is able to answer my questions.

We haven't seen Rogue One as yet because we are trying to catch up. So imagine his excitement when he knows more about this new one!

Even If It's A Rat Race Of Family And Prayer - 4Ms #Music

As usual, It's been a rat race of being on time or trying to be, and getting activities done around here.  It is good that the kids have their thing, but sometimes I just want to be the introvert.

I'm still stressed but figure that's part of living. I try to pray through it or breathe or just let it go. Just telling my mind that I cannot handle this right now and will not think about it.

My husband was unwell, but it slowly getting back to healing. Please pray for him if you can.

Please pray for our marriage.

I find that I am physically stressed to where I'm now grinding my teeth. I thought perhaps this only happens when I slept and would try to fall asleep with my mouth open and would always wake up with it clamp shut.

Except, now I realize that I'm doing this in the day time while I'm awake. I try to be conscious of it and release, but I probably will have to get a mouth guard.

I've also become a tweezer fan.

Spring soccer is winding down.

My son's team won most of their games. My daughter's team just won their last two games and have another one on Wednesday coming. I hope they will go out with another win.

Perhaps we'll have more rest time again without the overlapping schedules and constant run run run!

Welcome to the dance floor. Hope y'all have a good weekend.

Theme for Monday's Music Moves Me this Monday is "
 April 10th tunes from Grammy's...  the year you turned 18 yrs. old
I guess I'll go with the Song of the year from then.

But will begin with this most wonderful song from MercyMe. Please listen. I love the end!!



Even If

They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now
Right now I'm losing bad

I've stood on this stage
Night after night
Reminding the broken
It'll be alright
But right now
Oh right now I just can't

It's easy to sing
When there's nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I'm held to the flame
Like I am right now

I know You're able
And I know You can
Save through the fire
With Your mighty hand
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Good thing
A little faith is all I have right now

But God when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Give me the strength
To be able to sing
It is well with my soul

I know the sorrow
I know the hurt
Would all go away
If You'd just say the word
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

You've been faithful
You've been good
All of my days
Jesus, I will cling to You
Come what may
‘Cause I know You're able
I know You can

It is well with my soul

Winning - Celebrating - Bracing For Storms + 4Ms #Music

It's quite a weekend.

My daughter went to open house at her soon to be new school. There will be some pros to her going to this school.

On Saturday we went to a fun shindig at a hospital close to us. It was nice that they had a swat truck on scene among other things.

We then went to soccer and her team won the game! She also scored a goal which she was most excited about.

Her brother also won his game so we went to get a treat at sonic.

After her soccer game, we rushed off to do some mission work at a local nursing home. Her bible study group from our church met together to work at the home. It was a blessing and we should do more of this kind of loving.

They wanted to visit the library after that and I obliged, even though I wanted to just be home snuggled in.


There are more games and church and choir practice tomorrow Sunday, but with the forecasted weather, all of that could be cancelled/ rescheduled.

Hope y'all had a lovely weekend!

Winning - Celebrating - Bracing For Storms + 4Ms #Music:





Flawless

There's got to be more
Than going back and forth
From doing right to doing wrong
‘Cause we were taught that's who we are
Come on get in line right behind me
You along with everybody
Thinking there's worth in what you do

Then like a hero who takes the stage when
We're on the edge of our seats saying it's too late
Well let me introduce you to amazing grace

No matter the bumps
No matter the bruises
No matter the scars
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt
Or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain
Still the truth is
The cross has made
The cross has made you flawless

Could it possibly be
That we simply can't believe
That this unconditional
Kind of love would be enough
To take a filthy wretch like this
And wrap him up in righteousness
But that's exactly what He did

Take a breath smile and say
Right here right now I'm ok because
The cross was enough

Then like a hero who takes the stage when
We're on the edge of our seats saying it's too late
Well let me introduce you to grace grace
God's grace

No matter what they say
Or what you think you are
The day you called His name
He made you flawless

Country Archer Beef Jerky Giveaway $75RV

My husband introduced me to beef jerky. I think it's alright and should be taken on a camp, but I wouldn't eat it all the time :)


Country-Archer-Giveaway

Sponsor: Country Archer

Prize: $75 Country Archer Prize Pack

Country Archer makes healthy food for people who care enough to get things done — and they’ve been doing it for nearly forty years. Although their jerky has been around since 1977, it’s been a bit of a hidden gem, sold mostly in roadside stands. 

Their current owners, Eugene and Susan Kang, discovered it on a road trip to the Grand Canyon and enjoyed it so much, they decided to track down the original owner. A butcher by trade and artisan by craft, Celestino Mirarchi was definitely a doer. In fact, he was so busy making jerky, he couldn’t devote much time to selling it. The trio became business partners and made it their mission to share the tasty secret with the rest of the world.

Country Archer’s line of healthy jerky and meat snacks are sold nationwide. And although the company has grown, they’re still paying homage to Mirarchi’s decades-old tradition by making their snacks in small batches at our California facility using healthful ingredients and protein options like grass-fed beef, antibiotic-free turkey, and pork. Whether you reach for them in your pantry, backpack, desk or lunchbox, Country Archer products make it easier for you to eat healthfully, while doing the things you love.

Dates: 4/1-4/15
Open to: US Residents 18+

Mom Life Back To The Future Forgiven 4Ms #Music

Interesting weekend.
It poured rain, hail, lightning, and thunder Friday night all into Saturday.
All soccer games were cancelled for Saturday. The kids didn't mind , so they slept in.

Sunday we went to early service so that we could make the soccer games. My son had his at 10:30am in one direction and my daughter had hers at 10:15 in another direction.

I intended to bring both and hope they'd at least catch some of the games, but hubs said he could take one of them, so that was good.

Their teams lost, but it's a learning process.

No choir practice this evening, so we are just hanging out at home. It's nice to just not have somewhere to be.

Hope y'all had a good weekend.

Forgiven

I'm the one who held the nail
It was cold between my fingertips
I've hidden in the garden
I've denied You with my very lips

God, I fall down to my knees
with a hammer in my hand
You look at me, arms open

Forgiven, Forgiven
Child, there is freedom
From all of it
Say goodbye to every sin
You are forgiven

I've done things I wish I hadn't done
I've seen things I wish I hadn't seen
Just the thought of Your amazing grace
And I cry, “Jesus, forgive me”

God, I fall down to my knees
With a hammer in my hand
You look at me, arms open

I could've been six feet under
I could've been lost forever
Yeah, I should be in that fire
But now there's fire inside of me
Here I am a dead man walking
No grave gonna hold God's people
All the weight of all our evil
Lifted away, forever free
Who could believe, who could believe?

Forgiven, Forgiven
You love me even when I don't deserve it
Forgiven, I'm forgiven
Jesus, Your blood makes me innocent
So I will say goodbye to every sin
I am forgiven, I am forgiven

And today's THEME:
March 27th theme is Music from Sci-Fi movies and/or TV series

#WIN A Mattress Protector / Waterproof Fitted Sheet RV$155 - 5 Winners

I do want a few mattress protectors for my home, but these items can run more on the expensive side and out of my budget.

So here we are giving away one to five winners! How pleased will you be! And I'll have to go find a giveaway to enter :)


(This post contains affiliate links)

Sponsored By: HighFive Easy

Hosted By: Love, Mrs. Mommy

5 Winners Will Receive: 

A HighFive Easy Mattress Protector / Waterproof Fitted Sheet! 

A $155 TRV Giveaway!

Whether we like it or not, those bedtime diaper leaks do happen and it’s good to be prepared for when they do. Before learning of HighFive Easy, I always used a waterproof mattress protector on my daughter’s bed and then covered it with a fitted sheet.

Now, with HighFive Easy to the rescue that’s not something I need to do anymore! HighFive Easy makes a 100% cotton crib mattress protector that is also a waterproof fitted sheet thanks to its TPU layer. TPU fabrics are made using a (slightly more expensive) heating process that “bakes in” the laminated waterproofing properties rather than using chemicals. Then the top layer of material was chosen, so that it was comfortable and breathable for your child.

Open To US and must be 18+ to enter
Giveaway Dates ~ 3/20 12:01 AM EST through 4/12 11:59PM EST

Disclosure: Love, Mrs. Mommy and all participating bloggers are not held responsible for sponsors who do not fulfill their prize obligations. Love, Mrs. Mommy received a HighFive Easy Mattress Protector at no cost to facilitate the above-mentioned review. This giveaway is in no way endorsed or sponsored by Facebook or any other social media site. The winner will be randomly drawn by Giveaway Tools and will be notified by email. Winner has 48 hours to reply before a replacement winner will be drawn. If you would like to participate in an event like this please contact LoveMrsMommy (at) gmail (dot) com.

A Busy Weekend With A Smooth Operator #Music 4Ms

It has been a good weekend.

Both kids had soccer on Saturday. My son's team came from behind to win 3-2. He scored two goals. Oh what long kicks! And powerful too!

My daughter's team waited half hour for a Ref. A parent volunteered to Ref, and after Five minutes or so, a Ref showed up and took over. Her team lost 4-0.

Then it was home for eats and a nap. Such a long day in the sun needed replenishment to go to the store for groceries.

So glad we were able to get some things for the Jr BETA club food drive.

Sunday was positive. I had volunteer duty taking care of little children at our church. Then had a good volleyball session with my son, daughter and another child we invited to play.  My daughter joined in after her choir practice.

We headed home, and got to spend time together laughing, talking, educating and watching the movie: RACE (Jessie Owens)

I will miss them leaving for school.

Hope y'all had a good weekend.

Welcome to music hopping.
