Family in NEED

Alright so I know a lot of people probably don’t read my blog but those of you that do I hope you will take a moment to read this and maybe we can make a difference.

There is a couple from Pleasant Grove Holiness Church, some of you might know them but Bro. Scott & Sis. Amy Pace. Their house has recently burnt down and they have completely lost everything. They have 3 children Dylan 13, Taylor 9, & Dawson 5. I would love to be able to help them out. If any of you out there has any clothes, shoes, money, home goods, anything you would like to donate to them I would appreciate it.

I’ve never done anything like this so I don’t even know where to begin (so any help would be greatly appreciated) I would guess that maybe we can put a date on when to take everything we can gather up to them I guess that date can be Friday April 13, 2012, that way I can take whatever I have come up with to them on Saturday April 14, 2012. I know when my mom lost her house so many people pulled together and I just want to try and do the same thing for someone else. I heard that they are staying with her parents.

I am sure with them losing everything, everything is needed. My plan is to give them either cash money or gift card that way they can buy whatever they really need and that way they aren’t getting duplicates of the toiletries’.

You can email me at (work email) or you can call/text me at 256-509-9344. Hopefully we can help them out.

Just thoughts

Alright so do you ever think you have a lot of faith in God and think yeah he can really do anything that wants to do and when that time comes you start thinking “Oh Lord, well I really do hope that he can!” I am at that point in my life. I have always been very confident that the lord would just work it out that I could be a stay at home mom and that when I got pregnant everything would just fall right into place and the lord would provide that desire of my heart, to stay at home and raise my child. Well the time has come the decision is here to make and I think Oh lord just what if we can’t make it with me staying at home. I have always been the glass is half full and Sam has always been the glass is half empty and now it seems our roles have switched. I love my husband and how determined he is to make it where I can stay at home and him be the one providing. As I am talking to Sam I ask have you got a sign that maybe you just haven’t shared with me… we both laugh… but I am serious… I am so scared but I do trust Sam but more importantly I trust the God I serve. I think of how many times I have asked him to do things for me and they were answered not always right on time and not always what I wanted but just perfect when it did happen. Take us having a child right now, we have tried and tried and you guys know the trial I went through and even though you probably lost count at all my bad days even those that I didn’t blog about and I am so thankful for every single one of them. I think that if we would have had a baby before now how life might now have worked out like it is right now at this moment, this perfect moment. Sam and I both are so extremely excited and so happy that we are going become parents. I have went through so many pregnancies over the past few years, some where the parents weren’t happy that a baby was on the way, some where 1 parent was happy and the other wasn’t, some where no one was happy for the couple and the parents were happy, some where the dad felt like the mom practically made him give in to have a baby, and through all of those pregnancies I didn’t one of them to be me and Sam, I wanted us to both be happy we were having a baby and everyone around us to be happy. The thought crossed my mind when people were pregnant that even if I did get pregnant no one would even be happy cause that person was having a baby before I was but it isn’t that way, and if it was I wouldn’t care cause all that matters is that Sam and I are happy (which we are) Everyone around us is showering us with excitement, just as much excitement as we have. I couldn’t think that it could be more perfect. Today as I blog I think lord I have prayed and prayed for years and years for the “perfect” life… can life truly get any more perfect then mine? I want the lord (which he should already know, even though I can’t thank him enough) to know along with you guys that I am so thankful that the lord gave me the holyghost almost 13 years ago, and gave Sam the holyghost almost 6 years ago and in just a few month we will be married for 5 years, and just a few months after that 5 year mark the lord will bless us with our first bundle of joy, boy or girl I know we will both be happy. I love the lord and his plan, before I could get to this point I know I would think Lord why do you have to not let me get pregnant, when will I ever find a husband, why don’t we have money, all these questions… things I was so upset about like the lord didn’t love me, when loved me more then I even realized is what he did. I mean he has just worked it all out more then I can even blog about, probably more then I even know. I know this blog doesn’t really have a purpose just a bunch of chit chat. I guess I just was so thankful at how the lord worked things out and hope that in that time of need of faith I hope I will have it, when I step out on his faith I hope I am able to stand and not fall. I know he just has to be there with me, especially that’s what I can hope for J

Ok so I am so excited! LOL I just had to share with everyone else… So Sam and I were at Lowe’s last night and I am walking around by myself and this strange lady (whom I have no idea who she is) says “Aww are you having a boy or girl?” and OML I started screaming in my mind… lol I was so excited cause this was a total stranger that had no idea who I was or if I was really pregnant and she asked me. Sam was like Kendra why are you so happy about that and I was like cause it means I look pregnant & I am not just fat lol… I was so excited… I think it made it more real… now I just can’t wait to feel the baby move, the way people are describing I might have already felt it move but I don’t know… lol

Bad Weather

The front of my Mom & Brother's House

Close up of the front of the house

Back view of the house

Outside building that is completely flipped over

Some of you may have heard but my mom and brother are in need of your prayers. They were in the tornado Friday that came through New Market. They were sitting in their house watching the news and it hadn't said anything about take cover so they were just watching the news and the power went off so they went outside to the porch and mom seen the clouds & Colby said that there was rotation in the clouds and so they jumped off the porch and took off running towards the neighbors house that has a storm shelter. Mom said that the tornado kept hitting them in the back, the wind was blowing so hard. Mom said trees were just falling left and right as they were running. They got to the neighbors house but the door was locked and so they just grabbed each other and held each other underneath the neighbors carport. Mom said the tornado was so strong it ripped her contacts out of her eyes, and she couldn't breathe at all. Not one place on Colby's face could even be touched that didn't have debre on it. The carport started to collasped and mom said that she just was waiting for death to come, and the neighbors truck was parked under the carport and it caught the carport otherwise it would have smashed Mom and Colby. He said he never parks his truck where it was parked Friday which was just the lord, otherwise it would have killed them. In just a few minutes the window just fell down, it didn't break or anything the whole window pane fell away from the wall & Colby was able to jump in through the window and open the door and they were able to get into the neighbors house. Its just by God's mercy that my family is still alive and with me today. I thank the lord cause my life could be so different right now. I have 3 MAIN people in my life that is my "family" and that's my mom, brother and Sam. I could have easily lost 2 of them Friday and I want the lord to know just how thankful I am. There were about 50 people Friday that was at my mom's house helping us try to salvage everything we could and those people will NEVER be forgotten in our eyes. I think about all the people that came from near and a far to put in a helping hand when my family were in need and I am so thankful. The amount of love that was shown and still being shown is truly appreciated. Bro. Dennis & Sis. Kathleen Hereford are letting mom & Colby stay in their rental house which is in New Market and we were able to get them moved right in to that house and I am so thankful! My heart is truly thankful. I know I keep saying that over and over but nothing like this has ever happen to me or my family and I am so thankful. I take so much for granted and I don't want to do that anymore. I will ask that you guys please keep them in your prayers. They will need your prayers for awhile, I just ask that you guys pray the lord will bless them after having to go through this. I know it's my family and I have the "bragging" rights but all bragging aside, my mom taught me and Colby to do just as she always does and that's to drop what we are doing and us do without to help the ones in need and I believe with all my heart Colby and I have always tried to do that. I know my mom has helped and helped people throughout my 24 years of life and I know the lord won't let her down. After dad left he left her in alot of debt and she was having to work 4 jobs to pay her bills and the things he left her in and I pray the lord will just bless her and hopefully she won't have to work so much and she can just live her life without the stress and worry that she had before. Again thank you guys for all the love you have shown and please continue to pray for my mom & brother.
