Time to reflect

As I sit back and I look at my life over the past few years….it’s been interesting. God has blessed me beyond belief. First, I wake up every morning, sane, in my right mind and able to move. I have use of every single one of my limbs. I have a beautiful family that is just truly amazing. My children are awesome! God over the past few years made me a vessel for yet another one of His creations! They all are, as different as they are from one another. I’m looking at them now in amazement. It’s like really God?! I can see the beauty of the world through a child’s eyes every single day on 3 different levels! An infant, who discovers everything one tiny piece at a time. And a kindergartener, who sees the world through those rose colored glasses! Everything is pretty except fruit flies. lol. And then a 7 year old, who doesn’t understand that everyone is not always nice and everyone is not your friend. Just the fact that I was once these ages and looked at things the same way is amazing to me for some reason. lol. Probably because I do sit and think like I have given birth to 3 wonderful people who will one day grow up and be an adult like me. I hope that I have a good impact on the way that they live their lives!

Just random babble. Hope it was easy to follow. Thanks for reading!


Who do I see?

Who do I see?
I see a man who loves me
I see a man who would do anything for me
to protect me and keep me
I see the person that I fell in love with
and who fell in love with me
who makes me smile
makes me laugh
and yes, makes me mad

Who do I see?
I see a father who loves his children
even when they are so very annoying
at their loudest moments
but especially in those quiet moments
Like when they are sleeping and you go take a peek
All I see then is love

What do I see?
I see my husband
I see my partner
I see my everything
I see what God has blessed me with
and I am so overjoyed that I have you
No matter the bad times
no matter what you think of yourself
I still see the best part
I see the God in you
I see His joy and His strength
It’s been basically 8 years now
and everyday, I still think I Do

I love you!
More and more everyday

Casey Anthony not guilty…

I am responding to everyone that has a post about the Casey Anthony trial. So now, today, 7-5-11 at 2:15PM, the jury declared her NOT GUILTY! Everyone seems to have an issue with the fact that the jury declared her not guilty. First and foremost, we are human. It is human nature to jump to conclusions, to assume that you know the truth. Now as a juror, it is your job to look at the evidence and not go on emotion. They did just that. The only thing that they had on her was that she spent those days without her daughter partying and having a good ole time. No one knows/knew her mindset. No one knows what she dealt with/was dealing with. No one TRULY knows what happened except God.

I know at this point in the article, everyone is thinking “I know she is not defending her. I know she not making up excuses. I know she this and I know she that (referring to me). At this point, get mad, kick scream fight, yell, do what you have to do to get over it because the case is done now. Let it go. The only reason why we all know about it is because of TV reporters opening their mouths and making it public. We normally only find cases like this (popularity-wise) with celebrities. It may not have even gone to trial or gone on this long! The media scrutinizes information and sometimes change the public opinion about things.

I am a Christian. And speaking from a spiritual point of view, anyone that is a true Christian should have just prayed for her and left it alone. She has been through quite a bit, regardless of guilt and no matter what everyone say, she does deserve peace. She will never have a “normal life.” Now let’s look at that part….what if she actually didn’t do it? What is her life going to be like now? What is going to happen to her? No one will look at her the same. She is going to need a job…hmmm….that’s going to be non existent since she has been deemed a murderer by almost everyone. What is her relationship going to be with her family? She is going to be alone. No one deserves that. So I pray for peace in her family and forgiveness and joy and togetherness. I’m sorry. Maybe that’s just my outlook on that!? I hope and pray that as long as she is on this earth that she has peace and at some point can find happiness. When she leaves this Earth, she will face God. And HE will then provide the judgement. Who are we but people. Not God Himself. ONLY HE can provide the proper judgement.

There are tons of people sitting in jail now that were placed in jail based on a jury that went with emotion…or a prosecutor who placed evidence in a courtroom, but it actually wasn’t pointing to the person being tried, but another person. And they themselves know…but because they want to win, they submit it as evidence. How many of us know people that have been placed in jail based on “evidence” but the person actually didn’t do it! I know at least 1! This time though, the prosecutors had no hard evidence that would without a doubt cause Casey Anthony to be guilty. That reasonable doubt factor played a big part. And like my wonderful husband said, “Blame Florida because they didnt do their jobs. Her lawyers did. Justice is imperfect, but in the end the state of Florida needed to do a good job and they didn’t.”
