Thoughtful Thursday

Good Morning Everyone,

I am loving these Blog Hops and the themed days that we all go in and share the funny things that happen in our families, the pictures, and just sharing what is going on in our lives. In light of that I was thinking about a VERY good friend(yes, you Peggy) who has been with me through a lot and her passion for journaling. I was thinking the other day as I found a blog that had joined mine as a "follower" that she uses her blog to write down her children's activities, the funny things and just to share but at the same time, it is there for her keep and go back and revisit where she has been and where she is present.
That is where I think journaling is so important. Do I journal every single day like I used to? No but I do try and find some time during the day to just to write something, even if it's just a paragraph. Before Kaleb arrived, I could sit and write for hours. Write for days if I had the opportunity. Sometimes I would even be late for work because I was so into whatever I was writing. I have an entire box full of journals that I keep and when I go back and look at them on occasion, it is sooooo clear where the Lord has brought from and you can not help but see that we are on a journey.
Even learning about this "Blog World" I am amazed. To read and share with other families all over the US just amazes me. The heartache of some, the laughter, the passion for their work, the passion for their children and most of all the passion that so many have for the Lord. I'm just simply in awe. As I thought the other day, I started this blog when I became a Birth Doula. Even since the blog started, there has been change. Lots of change. Change in the home, change in work, change in goals, change in passion, change even as to what I want to be when I grow up. One thing is for sure, I am hanging on to the handlebars of this ride with my Lord and going where He shows me to go. I am determined to stay at His side and to follow His lead. There have been so many times, especially lately that I was ready to throw my hands up from feeling completely overwhelmed, ready to walk away from everything that I thought was what He wanted me to do and give up and settle. THAT IS NOT THE ANSWER!!!!! It is at those times when I can shut my door to my office and shed the tears that need to come and ask for His strength because "I" can't do it anymore. "I" can't take another step, make another copy of my brochures, order more business cards, sign up for a massive show. I have to lay down what Pam is trying to do and do it FOR HIM and THROUGH HIM. Those are usually the times when I open that office door and in walks one of our docs at work and says "You need to make a connection with this young lady" Then I know without a doubt, I am where I am suppose to be and I just need to rest in HIM and let Him do the work that He needs to do and I just need to follow after HIM. The exciting part is, then I get Thoughtful Thursdays and I get to share. I have this blog for many reasons but Thursdays is probably one of my favorite because it is 30 full minutes that we can sit, have a cup of coffee and I can share my heart. Thanks for joining me today and maybe today, go and pick up a simple composition notebook and a favorite pen and write. Once you start, I promise, you will have to pull yourself away!!!!!!!!

See you tomorrow for Flashback Friday.....It's going to be GREAT!!!!!!!

"What would your children say Wednesday"


Last week was a conversation with my 2 year old. This week it is a conversation with my 20 year old.

Me- How was your trip this weekend
Me- Did you get some good pictures?
Him-ok I guess
Me- What time did you leave this morning?
Him-8am there, 9 am here
Me- You sound really tired?
Me-Were there a lot of cars there to shoot?
Sitting down face to face or texting is A LOT BETTER!!!!!! Talking on the phone is NOT his thing....can you tell??????
By the way, he is a photographer. He shoots pictures of cars and engines and such. Loves doing "Drift Events". He is AWESOME!!!!!!! He even shot some of the NC State Athletics events this past school year. He is an AWESOME son!!!! I love him dearly and he even has his own website. Check it out and leave him a message.

Thoughtful Thursday

This is a tough one to write. It is hard for some reason to really come up with these thoughts and put them in appropriate paragraph form so it may seem a little jumbled but I think you will get the point.

It has been a very hard couple of weeks for some of my friends. I have watched and prayed for them as they go through things that at some point we may or may not experience.

-One set of friends had to say good-bye to a Father and Grandpa. I know how it is to lose your Grandfather. That will be a day that I NEVER forget. I was actually in SC this past weekend and drove by where he used to live. It is just not the same and the people who live there have no idea. Oh the tears that were shed in that drive.

-Another friend got a call while on vacation that her Grandmother, who was in her 90's, had a stroke. They came home and then went back to the vacation. I am sure it was not the same. She came back to work on Monday to only be there a few hours and got the call that her Grandmother had gone on to her Heavenly Mansion. Oh Praise the Lord!!!!

-A friend of my husband lost her child to cancer this past weekend. My heart just breaks for them and the thoughts of losing a child. It really leaves me speechless. We will be attending a "Celebration" on Sunday afternoon.

-A friend at work has a very ill Mother. Her husbands Mother is also very ill. Both have cancer and both rely on her and her husband for everything they need. 2 Moms that are very sick and the 2 children taking care of them and still trying to work full time plus some. I'm praying for strength and wisdom for both of them.

I am sure there are so many more that I could write about. I am sure that there are more hurts and sorrows that we can wrap our human minds around. Yet, in the middle of the hurt and the pain that these families are experiencing, I believe with all of my heart that they all know that they will see those loved one's again. I can't raise my voice loud enough or my hands high enough to PRAISE HIM FOR THAT!!!!!! Can you imagine an eternity separated from HIM!!!!?????

I do need to share with you an e-mail that I got from our Prayer Warrior Leader at church. I just wish you could meet her. I have no doubt that she storms the gates of Heaven for the lost every day. She is conducting a Bible Study in her home. We,as her Sunday School class, have prayed for this study that she is doing. It's with neighbors living near her and those she knows. Below is the e-mail that she sent!!!!! You can just hear her excitement as you read it.

Thank you for your prayers for the Tuesday eve neighborhood Bible study. The LORD has heard and answered! Please take a moment to PRAISE and THANK our KING: HE has snatched a burning stick out of the fire! Last night on the drive home from the study, one of the ladies asked Jesus into her heart! It has been very obvious that HE has been in hot pursuit of her--oh how HE loves her (and us!)! Let us jump for joy and join in with the heavenly celebration over one soul who has repented!
Praise God! Praise His Holy Name.
Thank you for all your prayers (please don't stop praying!)....we meet 3 more times 7-8:30 Tuesday eves!

PLEASE:::::If you have a request, feel free to leave it in the comment section. Details are not necessary, God already knows the details.

Laboring with You,

"What would your children say?"


This is a really cute idea for posting!!! I just love it and with a 2 year old this could really be fun!!!!

Let's get started. Let's see if you can figure out Kaleb's favorite word.

Me: Would you like to watch Cars?
Kaleb: Nope (as he hands me the DVD case)

Me: Are you hungry?
Kaleb: Nope (as he opens the pantry door)

Me: Did you play with your friends today at school?
Kaleb : No

Daddy: Where is your race car?
Kaleb: No race car

Daddy: Ready to go to school?
Kaleb: No, ready for school as he heads for the door with car in hand.

Daddy: Want to talk to Mommy on the phone?
Kaleb: NO!!!!!!!! (this is the typical response in the morning drive but completely different in the afternoon)

Me: Kaleb, would you like an ice cream cone?
Kaleb: Ice cream cone, Ice cream cone, Ice cream cone NOW!!!!!!!

This was such fun!!!!!! Kaleb is working on saying "yes" but for now we read between the lines of the letters N and O and somehow find the word Y E S!!!!

Now it's your turn.......

Thanks for stopping by!!!!! Don't forget to go to the link at the top and sign in!!!!

Favorite Recipie

I actually have 2 to share. Both from very special people.

From my Granny---A Cup of This and A Cup of That
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour (self-rising)
1 cup milk
1 cup of fruit (fresh, canned, frozen)
Mix sugar, flour and milk together. Once combined, add in the fruit and stir to coat the fruit.
Place mixture in a well coated with Pam 8x8 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40-60 minutes depending on your oven and your fruit. Top should be golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream. There WILL BE NO LEFT OVERS.

From a great friend Michelle and it became known at church as Marsha's Favorite Salad. She is My Other Mother who is now a missionary in Ukraine. ANYTIME we would get together for a meal or have something at church, I never had to ask what to bring. It was always "The Salad".
So, thanks to Michelle, Here is........

Marsha's Favorite Salad

1 bag of baby spinach leaves (rinsed and drained)
1 small container of cranraisins or dried cranberries
1/2 container of feta cheese crumbles
1 can of mandarin oranges (drained well)
2 handfulls of candied walnuts
Toss together and serve with a plain cruton and Fat Free Raspberry Vinegarette.
**During the summer, add sliced grilled chicken or steak or even pork for a complete meal**

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

Not Me Monday!!!!!!

*****REVISED TO NOT MY CHILD MONDAY!!!!******** ( I can't figure out how to get the "button")

Ok, I have a friend that loves to read McMama and she also reads mine but she doesn't have a blog herself. She so needs one and I am working on that. She had to share her "Not Me Monday" with me last week and I almost fell out of my chair at work when I read it. I got permission and she has allowed me to share it with you.

"My 3 yo daughter did not dig a hole,poop in it, cover it up and exclaim "Mom, I just like de kitty." Nope not my kid." (Thank you Tara for letting me share)

I did not go to a seafood restaurant and completely pig-out on FRIED food!!!! Which made me sick!!! YUCK!!!!!

I did not eat 2 whole plates of fresh vegetables out of my parents garden this weekend while I was at their house. There is just something about fresh vegetables out of a garden.YUM!!!!!!!

I did not go to the Bath and Body Works Outlet and spend way to much money. After all, it is for an event, me, and maybe if I decide to share, some birthday or Christmas pre-shopping.

I did not drive almost 4 hours before I decided that my 2 year old needed a break to get out of the car. We were almost home.

I did not let my child ride standing in front of my down my parents driveway to the garden, dancing to the music and asking me if I was "sceared".

I did not allow my 2 year old try to use pencils and crayons and catch him wanting to draw on the wall and not on the "peper".

I did not find out from my Mom that he had decorated their hallway and one closet door with a pencil.

I did not have to teach the above 2 year old that we don't spank Mommy and Daddy and Mema and Papa with the spatula.

I did not have to institute a "time-out chair" last night because talking was not getting me anywhere above the high pitched screaming from a 2 year old.

We had a great time at my parents. Kaleb had spent the entire week. I will share pictures later on this week. My parents garden is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! This is going to be a busy week....stay tuned!!!!!

We interupt our regular programing for a Special Report!!!!!!

I had to interupt the usual daily post for this. I felt that it was necessary for those who may not have been to the Blog before or it has been a while. We had a guest Pastor this past weekend in our Church. He spoke about being "unleashed" and being active in ministry for Christ. I want to make it very clear to anyone that reads this Blog on a regualr basis that Christ is my Savior and that will never be denied. He saved me at a young age and to this day He is still working in and through me and I pray that I continue to put self aside and allow Him to continue His Handy work until the day He calls me Home with Him. We have an awesome lady in our church named Joanne that is in charge of the Prayer Ministry and she sends out request and praises all the time. This week she sent out an e-mail about the different ministies that we have at church and how so many of us are "unleashed" to do what He has called us to do. I had to share. Not sharing would have been delayed obedience and I learned a long time ago that delayed obedience is disobedience. Below is what I wrote. If you are a Mom that I have been with, or you are a Mom that I am currently working with or someone who knows someone that may need me, I hope that you know that you are loved and prayed for. I have 2 biological children, 1 adopted and 15 "Mothered" children. I love them and their parents and try to keep up with them as much as possible. There are no words to express my gratitude to those who have allowed me in the delivery room or stand outside the OR doors waiting for that new life. Thank you to those who read and those who comment!!!!!! Please continue to pray!!! I will continue to serve.
There a lot of people at Cornerstone that have no idea what I do but I believe with all of my heart He is in the middle of what I do because He has put me there. Tuesday night I went right after work and watched a new life. I watched His creation and His handy work, right in front of me. I was just overwhelmed as I always am. I watched a "couple" turn into a "family". A wife and husband turn to a Mom and a Dad. I was humbled to see Him at work again. My families know that I am a Christian. I don't deny that and I send them to my blog and let them see what He is doing in my family and in my life. I have watched a lot of teenage girls become Mothers and I have even been apart of the one that gave her baby up for adoption. He has blessed me with that privilege and He is growing me in ways that I didn't think possible but with Him all things are possible. No, what He is allowing and doing in my life is not a "Church-wide" ministry but I covet the prayers when there is a delivery or that new teen mom and I are meeting for the first time. My ministry/buisness is Mothering The Mother and I only pray that I Mother these Mothers with His love!!!! That the one's that are not a believer will seek me out to ask or allow that seed to be planted. He equips me and He uses Cornerstone to do that.!!!!!!! PRAISE HIM FOR THAT!!!!!!!!

Laboring with You,

Doula Mama (Pam)


Thoughtful Thursday!!!!!!

I am having a hard time believing it is Thursday all over again.
My original thought was to have something very profound to write about today and being profound is not where this tired brain is today. I am feeling a bit tired but never the less still putting one foot in front of the other and making it through another day. A very busy one at that. Therefore I have chosen to take the easy way so to speak. This is been a favorite of mine from Third Day. Love the new one's Revelation and Born Again. But.....As you read through this song. Really think about it. Think about what it is saying and realizing that all we have to do is just call on Him.!!!!!! Aren't you thankful for that!!!!!!!

It's been so long since
You felt like you were loved
So what went wrong
But do you know
There's a place where you belong
Here in My Arms

When you feel like you're alone in your sadness
It seems like no one else in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call My name and I'll be there
You just call My name and I'll be there

The pain inside
Has erased your hope for love
Soon you will find
That I'll give you all
That your heart could ever want
And so much more

When you feel like you're alone in your sadness
It seems like no one else in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call My name and I'll be there
You just call My name and I'll be there

You just call My name
You just call My name
Call My name say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive
Call My name say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive

You just call My name
You just call My name
You just call My name

The love I have for you is so alive
The love I have for you is so alive
You just call My name
You just call My name
You just call My name

Call out to Him Today!!!!!

Good Evening To You!!!!!!

What an awesome and exciting day this has been. Tuesday evening I went to the hospital to meet a couple that had hired me as their Doula. Of course, what I am most passionate about for sure!!! She worked all evening and into the night and early morning. At about 9:45am this morning we welcomed a brand new precious baby boy into the world. He looks like his Mom and he is just gorgeous. She had a beautiful delivery, worked like a pro and it was just awesome. Once again I am totally overwhelmed when such an event takes place and the fact that I am invited into such a place of intimacy between the Dad and Mom-To-Be is just a humbling experience.

It is something I wouldn't trade anything for!!!!! It is truly my passion!!!!!

This is kind of fun this week. It was a VERY stressful week at work and fun throughout the weekend because my parents were in town from Georgia!!!!!
So, here we go..........

I did not panic when my 20 year old called me at 7am on Saturday morning to tell me he was up and out before his Mom got out of the bed. He was going to go shoot a car show for a shop in South Carolina.

I did not watch my husband purchase ANOTHER 48 matchbox cars for our 2 year old.

I did not go to Wal-Mart to purchase 2 more "The King" cars from the movie "Cars" because we have misplaced one of the 2 that we have and we had a major melt down over not knowing where it was the other day.

I did not threaten to cook vegtables and tell my husband that it was something else to get him to eat them.

I did not go eat enough pizza on Saturday night to feed a small family of 4 by myself.

Yes, it was a good week with stress and humor all mixed in.

Thoughtful Thursday

Thoughtful Thursday.......

I was on my Facebook page this morning and my dearest friends who are missionaries in Ukraine put up a posting.
"1.6BILLION have never heard the name of Jesus-How many will I pass by today?"

Have you ever thought about that? Have you ever considered how many people that really is? Have you ever considered that amount of people being eternally separated from Him for eternity? I'm overwhelmed at the thought.

I had the privilege of attending the Maha Kumbh Mela in India back in 2001. It was a seen like I have never seen before. It was something that will be etched in my mind for the rest of my life. We were with a group and had the opportunity to witness such an event. This was a big year for the festival. This Maha Kumbh Mela only happens once every 144 years. I was overwhelmed and in awe at the fact the Lord allowed me to be there.
As we made our way through the MASSIVE drove of people, the animals, the small children running around we got to a bridge. As we stood on that bridge all you could see were people and more people. It looked like a gray ocean of movement. It was not even real appearing. Words just can not describe that over whelming feeling. As we made our way down to the Ganga River we managed to find an opening on the bank. We were told that under no circumstances were we to "share". We watched as people would dip plastic containers into the water that was muddy, dirty, just filthy, put a lid on it and take it home with them to allow the sick and dying to drink. This was Holy Water to them. We watched people of every age go down and bathe in this water. Chanting and counting the times the went down and even under the water. As I squatted watching what was taking place before me, I can still see it in my mind, the lady with her baby. This precious little one in the water with her mother. She was bathing this child in the water. I could do nothing but let the tears fall. It was so overwhelming. As Jim has said soooo many times. That was the biggest blessing to be able to have witnessed such an event but at the same time so difficult. We stood on the banks of that river with 60 MILLION people and knowing in our heart we had The Answer!!!! The ONLY Answer!!!! AND WE SAID NOTHING!!!!! The princes of darkness was having his day BUT THE LORD IS GOING TO HAVE HIS!!!!!! I have seen 60 million people that I believe in my heart are dying and going to spend eternity in hell away from the Lord. You may have never seen such but you have seen that neighbor, that co-worker or even that family member. It's time for us to get up and get out!!!!! Stop sitting on our laurels and do something.!!!!!!!!
Think on these things today. What kind of witness are you being for Christ? Are sitting on the banks and say nothing? I pray that I am NOT!!!!!!!

Not Me Monday!!!

Don't you just LOVE the "New Look"?????? To cute!!!!!!!

Ok, so here we go......

I did not go out to eat dinner the other night in a summer dress that I chose to use a swimsuit coverup this year.

I did not let my 2 year old have an ice cream cone right before bed for 2 nights in a row.

I did not start to correct my 2 year old by calling him his older son's name in the middle of a restaurant.

I did not eat 2 orders of "hash rounds" from Chick-fil-A because the little one decided that he didn't like his. We can't be wasteful!!!!!

I did not wake up late on Friday morning and think that my husband had already left for work and didn't realize he was STILL asleep on the couch!!!!!! OOPS!!!!!!

I did not get ready and go to teach a prenatal fitness class and no one showed up!!!!

I did not order a spicy crispy chicken sandwich from Wendy's with a large fry on July 4th because it was "FREE DAY" on my Fitness Challenge.

I did not eat a Hotdog-less Hotdog on Thursday because I don't eat red meat.

It was a fun week and a short work week!!!!!!! Thank goodness for holiday's when we get to take a break!!!!

Stay tuned for Thankful Tuesday's. It's going to be great!!!!!!

Thankful Thursdays

Thankful and Thoughtful Thursday

I missed doing Thankful Tuesday this week because I was at the hospital helping a Mom and Dad bring a new baby in to this world. It was such a blessing!!!!! So, since I missed the Thankful Tuesday I thought I could do both on the same day.
Here we go...... Some for Thankful and some for Thoughtful. I let you decide on what is what. Some that I am Thankful for and some that causes me to really think.

Thankful and Thoughtful Thursday...................
1-For God's timing in situations, even when I don't understand.
2-For the trials and circumstances that we are faced with every day.
3-For friends that we pray for to find what they are looking for and wanting with everything in their being.
4-For new pregnancies.
5-For new babies.
6-For New Mom's and Dad's.
7-For those awaiting 2 lines on the pregnancy test.
8-For those who may have lost a child.
9-For a job.
10-For a roof over your head and food on the table and gas in the car.
11-For health.
12-For a unexpected diagnosis.
13-For the health of our children.

I've started the list. Now it is your turn to see what you can come up with. Take some time and be thankful. Take some time and thoughtful for those who maybe dealing with circumstances that they cannot control.

See you again on Flashback Friday.....
