GodStop Friday ....on Saturday

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
It's that time again, GodStop Friday ! I was glad to hear that it had been a quiet week for Patty because it has been a quiet week for me too. Although I have witnessed God working mightily all around me.
I had an awesome Easter beginning on Easter eve (the night before). My "adopted" kids had their first baby. If you go here you will see the beautiful little Miss Tybee. Please pray for Joy and Derrick as they leap head first into sleep-deprived parenthood. Pray for God to strengthen them every day !
On Monday me and my friend Tabitha and I headed up to the Tri-Cities to do the merchandising job that we have together. As we were leaving our 3rd and final store we grabbed our purses out of the trunk of her car. She did not know it but her wallet fell out of her purse. Now she had already had a rough day and this only added insult to injury. But God....(those are my favorite words to type so I'm going to type them again)...But God.... had other plans, plans to prosper and not to harm Tabitha, plans to give her hope and a future ! (Jer. 29-11)
Tabitha realized her wallet was missing when an angel of the LORD (or so appointed as one that day) called Tabitha and told her that she had found her wallet. This wonderful lady also told Tabitha that she would send it back to her. Well bless God she did just that, she even FedExd it to Tab. Praise God !
I also have been blessed with a new opportunity to have another part-time job so as to help provide financially for my family. God brought this opportunity right on time and I praise him for it. He has and will continue to be my strength !
Oh well maybe it has not been such a quiet week after all. Be blessed my friends and I can't wait to see what God is going to do this week !

I'm A Grandma !! Well Sort of....

Isn't she pretty ! This is Tybee Lin and her beautiful Mommy Joy. Tybee was born very early on Easter Sunday ! Our "adopted" kids gave birth to this precious one. We actually "adopted" Joy as a college student to be her home away from home and we got Derrick in the deal. So they became our kids. They got married 5 years ago and 2 of our girls were in their wedding. Well now they have this beautiful blessing.
Derrick called us Saturday evening and said Joy was in labor. We jumped in the van and got down to the hospital. Once we were there my hubby knew I wasn't leaving until Tybee arrived.
Joy and Derricks parents were anxiously awaiting as well. Long story short....I got to stand outside the door with the 2 Grandmas and Joy's Aunt and we got to hear Tybee's first cry. How precious to hear that arrival announcement! What a gift from God on Easter. Praise you Father ! Well here are a few pics. Enjoy !
We think Tybee is lifting holy hands in this one. Getting ready for Praise and Worship !

Look at this sweet little family. Aren't they precious.

I think Daddy is a little proud of his little one !

Good Friday God Stop

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Ok, I sort of hesitate to post this one b/c I don't want Tyler to get the big head or anything but here goes anyway. This week Holli's bf Tyler along with his Dad and younger brother went to Georgia to visit Tyler's Grandfather and do some work. Anyway on Wednesday Tyler was in a car accident. Another vehicle ran a red light and hit the vehicle that Tyler was riding in on his side. The GodStop is that he was not hurt. Well it bruised his shoulder but it could have been a lot worse. So I do praise God for protecting Tyler.
Another GodStop is that God has provided a lot of opportunities for me in the last few weeks to make some extra money. I really praise God for that because He had provided for us.
Last of all I am still waiting but the GodStop here is that God is continually speaking to me through His Word to let me know that He has not forgotten, I need only to wait on His timing.
Have a blessed Easter !!

Thanks Patty ! You are the best !

I am so honored to receive this award from my BFF Patty. I truly do have a friend in her. God put us together as friends. She has been the best friend that I have ever had (besides Jesus that is). Patty and I have been through thick and thin together. We pray together, on the phone now because God relocated her. She encourages me and also holds me accountable. I am so thankful for her friendship. Oh and did I mention that we also have each others back ! Thanks again gurl ! Now to pass this award along.....

First I would like to give it to my oldest Godly girl that Patty spoke of...Holli . She is a teenager and we truly are friends. Now she knows that I'm in charge and the Momma so don't think that I wouldn't discipline when necessary ! But we have had some great times together lately and I must say I am enjoying her being a teenager. Did I just say that ?

Next I would like to bestow this on my good buddy Jiffener at Just Jen. We work together at MDO and go to church together. She has allowed me to have influence on her youngest Kendall Marie and I must say Kendall acts a lot like me ! YIKES Oh I better say Jiffener's real name is Jennifer. One of our Mother's Day Out kids gave her the name Jiffener a few years back and it stuck. Jen is also new to blogging and you might want to check out her blog as well.

One more I cannot leave out... My good friend Tabitha . She is also a Pastor's wife and we have had some great times together. Our favorite thing to do is to make up songs called "Hymns your Momma never sang" as we ride in her car Essie Johnson and do our merchandising jobs. This girl can change a fuse in 2 seconds flat !

Today on my side bar is the following verse from
We are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8 : 37-39

I must say that I love I have it downloaded to my computer and it is the best $20 I ever spent. Everytime I turn my laptop on I get a new verse. The timing of the verses is impeccable. Well actually we all know that it is God's timing with His Word.
Tonight I went to a VBS Conference. It was for the churches in our area that are using the same VBS theme. We all met 1st in the sanctuary of an area church. We got to listen to a group of kids sing the VBS songs and do the motions. It was awesome. There was one song that they sang called "The WORD". They started out the song by pulling New Testaments from their pockets and singing about John 1:1- In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Then the song went on to talk about how God's Word is perfect Truth, it is what I cling to, it the is unbreakable, unshakable Word of God. I love God's Word. Day after day it teaches me, it speaks to me and leads me in the way of Righteousness.
I'm telling you it gave me Holy goose bumps. I'm not one to cry and I was fighting back the tears. God blessed me through this song. I wanted to lay face down before him. It was truly Awesome. If you want to have your socks blessed off then you can hear this song by going to . Have a great day !

I will Praise You \0/ in the storm. I know that you have the beautiful garden that is being fed by all this rain that just keeps falling around me. I praise you that you already know what the harvest is going to be and because of that all I have to do is trust You My Heavenly Father ! I do trust you Father and I Love You with all that I am !
In the Sweet, Holy, Awesome Name Above Every Name Jesus I pray, AMEN !!!!!!

I just read my biblepromise verse for today:
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Thank you Father for more confirmation. Praise You LORD ! \0/

Ok everybody its Friday again. My GodStop for this week is...God answered a prayer and it totally caught me off guard.
My husband and I have been waiting and waiting for an answer or just some guidance in a certaion matter. So I called my BFF Patty and said "I don't know what God is up to but I wish He would tell us something. So Patty and I prayed over the phone right then and asked God if His will was what we thought it was then to please let us now the next day. Well guess what ! The mail came and there was a letter, an unexpected letter but a letter. I am sorry I can't go into detail but just believe me when I say it was a HUGE Godstop !

Ya'll have a great weekend ! Keep and eye out for Godstops !

7 Weird Things About Me

Just 7 ? Ok I guess seven is plenty. My BFF Patty tagged me for this meme. I have to do a little thinking because what I might think is normal might actually be weird. Let me see.......

1. I love to watch Dr. Phil . I haven't gotten to watch it as much lately but there have been times when I would say what time it is by using Dr. Phil's show time. Example...15 til Phil, 10 after Phil etc. You get the picture.

2. I am known for my sneezes. I sneeze really loud. So loud in fact that my husband can locate me in the mall if I sneeze. Which leads to the next weird thing...

3. I use cloth diapers instead of tissue to blow my nose. I know weird but it really works great. I hope this doesn't gross you out but my close friends and family know that I refer to these as my "snot rags". Sorry if I grossed you out but you are reading a post about weird things ! LOL

4. I love to make up songs about everything. Really life is a song at the Miller house. We sing and sing and sing. Crazy stuff. I also love to sing really loud and really off key. It is fun and it drives my kids crazy.

5. I have to have my Sunday afternoon nap. It is a necessity !

6. I don't like to hug. It makes me itch ! I am not a girly girl and when most women are going "ahhhhhhhhhh how sweet " over something I am usually looking for a trash can to throw up in !
It really grosses me out.

7. I LOVE to watch football. Especially the TN Vols ! My kids know to leave me alone when the Vols are on TV. I plan my Saturdays in the Fall around the Vols schedule.

Ok now I will tag Tabitha, Holli and Scotty Rogers (Tyler's Dad). Alright ya'll get on with it !
