Maria from With Hope

Just wanted to let you all know (you all probably know already) that Maria from the blog With Hope has deleted her blog for many reasons. She has asked me to give you all her email address if you want to keep up with her.

If you want to reach her, her email is

God bless all of you :)

Valentine's Day

So for Valentine's Day hubby and I aren't really big on this holiday but I wanted to make him cupcakes cause I remember around Christmas time he asked for cupcakes and well since I am such a "good" wife (LOL) I never made them till now...

So here they are... They are my 1st cupcakes EVER and they were delicious and since I had extra I just made a cake to go with it... Since I've been following Sweet April's blog I decided to take some tips from her :) I used a ziplock bag and cut the tip and just had a good time decorating them.... I used the Valetine's Funfetti Cake Mix and it was YUMMY!

Cake you taste them??? LOL

That was not the only thing hubby got from me....

He has a new office at work and he has been talking about pictures of "his" dog! Ok so not a pic of his wife but of HIS DOG! So me being the nice wife I decided to get 2 5x7's of "his" dog for his office...

The BIG one from me was the book that really means alot to me since I watched the movie "Fireproof." I thought that maybe we could both do it...
And well my gift from him was going to Walmart and picking out what I wanted.... I really couldn't think of anything but a computer game so I got the Sim's Life Stories game and I am having a blast with it!
Have a great and blessed day...

So let me update you on sweet Ashlynn...

"Overnight, Ashlynn's oxygen has gone back up to 100% and has stayed like that through this morning. I have to work this morning .... how in the world am I suppose to do that? My hope is that when Emily gets there she will be able to wean again." from her website

Please pray....


As for the job interview yesterday....

It lasted 1 hr 1/2... By the time I left that office I had the biggest headache from so many questions... I think this interview was the hardest of them all. But God pulled me thru each question that was asked while my hands were sweating like crazy. The lady that interviewed me made me feel very welcomed and relaxed and introduced me to everyone. I will know more within 3 wks to a month if I got it or not. She has to interview more ladies next week and the week after that so we'll see... I finally came to the conclusion that God has all the control of a job for me if I just do the sending of resumes, etc... I am going to take a break from STRESSING and since next week is my last week at my present job I will be able to relax. My family is coming from Texas for the Spring Break week so I will at least be able to spend time with them.


Thanks to Misty for your "Krispy Cream Donuts" weakness... ROFL

Michelle I am so sorry to hear about the job loss but yes God will provide and we just have to wait on Him. I will be praying for you all.

Rachel thanks for your prayers girl! We need to catch up from our last messaging back and forth :)

April thanks as well for your prayers girlie... Hope all is well in your kitchen as you Sing and Bake :) I made hubby cupcakes for Vday and he LOVED them and I even used the icing in a ziplock bag and made my own designs.. Pics coming soon...

Jen thank you as well... I hope all is well in your tummy :)

God bless all you ladies that are always encouraging me!

Love, Melanie

2nd Interview TODAY! Prayer!!

Hello my prayer warriors!!

Ya'll are amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping baby Ashlynn in your prayers. As of today her oxygen needs are still high but again GOD IS HER HEALER and I will stay updated on her thru-out the weekend the parents update.

On another note... I need prayer :) As most of you know im job hunting because as of next Friday I will be UNemployed but I am praying that I WON'T because I know the Lord has a job for me BEFORE than! Amen :) So today is my 2nd interview and I won't say where just because I need to keep it hush hush for some different reasons. The interview is at 1 p.m. today and im nervous but who wouldn't be?? I hate that ONE question that they ask which is what I dreamed of all last night "What is your weakness?" Well heck I don't know... I have ADD but I can't say that because they really won't hire me LOL! So in my dreams it was a NIGHTMARE...

So please keep me in your prayers!!

Thank YOU ALL so much! I am blessed to have each of you in my life and each of you have a special place in it!

IN Christ,

My heart cries...

Sometimes we don't understand why these things happen to us. It's like so sudden that miscarriages, stillborns, and dying after a few healthy months is all around me now... I don't know what the Lord is trying to show me from this but my heart is crying out to so many families that are suffering.

I have been seeing this beautiful little girl posted on other blogs saying "Pray for Cora" and it just blew me away to see that she just passed away. A healthy 11 month baby that had stage 4 cancer. I read about her thru Misty's blog and I just had tears in my eyes knowing the pain of a little one that you love so much to going to be with the Lord in just weeks.

Please pray for Cora's family.

*Nehemiah wrap your little arms around this family for mommy k and make sure you find Cora :)* Love you baby...

What would I do w/out ya'll??

Ya'll just amaze me at the sweetest comments you leave me! You all know how to encourage one another and for that I thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart!

All of you have a very special place in my heart and I know Nehemiah just loves to see his mommy smile every time I read your comments:)

In Christ,

Taking a little Hiatus...

Yes im taking a little break from the blogging world... I have a heavy heart of so many emotions right now. Sometimes I come on her and just and I look at the post a few hours later just to see that its a big o pity party im throwing on here and I need to stop! I thank each of you ladies for the awesome encouraging messages and they are really helping me! God did an awesome job at giving me all of you! Thank you Lord!

I need to really lean on the Lord more than I am on Blogger. Lately I think the Lord has been trying to show me things and all I am doing is on the internet all day long. I am addicted especially trying to find a job online.

As of my job status I am still working but the doors will close on the 1st of March but the last day of pay is actually the 27th of Feb. I have been sending my resume left and right and have not received one call yet but I have hope! I did a typing test on the fort here and I got 74WPM and this whole time I was putting on my resume that I typed 50WPM. LOL Thank you Lord for giving me the ability to type...


On another note my heart is sad and just all a basket case. My brother in law left Friday to a 12 month deployment and hearing my sisters voice was just so sad that I can't even explain. It totally reminded me of the day my husband left to Afghanistan, the day I saw a weapon straped to my husbands thigh. It just hurts and Fay if you read this know that the Lord has His arms wrapped around him each second. We will intercede in prayer and pray Psalm 91.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

My cousin Angel was also sent for a 12 month deployment as well on Friday so it was even harder! He is married with two kids and they live here where I live as well so I am blessed to be able to be there for his family while he is gone. We will be interceding in prayer as well.

So there it is.... My heart is very emotional!

Nehemiah mommy wants you to surround Tio Hector and Cousin Angel and Cousin Jonathan while they are fighting for our freedom! Mommy and Daddy love you Nehemiah and we are so blessed to know that you are in His hands! ((hugs baby))

***on a side note I started a new blog called Healing with one stitch @ a time... if you'd like you can go on over and follow me. This blog will be for hobbies that I like to do. Crocheting has big the one that helps me heal most of the miscarriage. It takes so much off of my mind!***
