Alive in Oklahoma


just a quick post to say we are alive and well in Oklahoma -
We moved on the 17th but have been having so much fun at the
Baker house that I haven't updated my blog

ok - so the title isn't the greatest - but today it's all i got ;)

So we are hoping to move on Monday but there is still no
power in parts of Tulsa, OK (if you don't know what i am talking about
watch the news - ICE STORM)- particularly the area we are moving to.
I am still packing regardless - lots of laundry to finish up - I just
have this feeling that at the last minute the power will be on and
everything will go according to plan.

Although if it doesn't we will just hang out in Houston a bit longer :)
WOW -- I sound as if I am a "fly by the seat of your pants" gal - DO
NOT BE DISMAYED - I am not - but I am getting better at trying to be

It's the Most WONDERFUL TIME of the YEAR

I love the music
i usually start listening to Christmas music in early November
I love to buy gifts
not so much the spending money part but the search for something
that the receiver truly wants/needs or would enjoy
I love the decorations
we are moving in 8 days so we didn't put up decorations this year
but I am already looking forward to decorating our new tree for next year
my mom bought me some new decorations when she was here after my radiation treatment - can't wait to put them up
Most importantly I love seeing my kids GET IT - really GET what we are celebrating

and that is what makes this the most wonderful time of the year

11th Hour

Ever notice how it is always in the 11th hour


God does something so wonderful only HE could have made it happen. I seem to find myself in some sticky situations - some big mistakes - and right when i start to get a little panic-y --- a little UNCOMFORTABLE -- HE rushes in to my rescue

I have to admit it is pretty awesome having JESUS as my SUPERHERO -

now don't misunderstand me - I don't think HE protects me from everything - after all it is the struggles that build our character and our faith -- but I can't help but smile when HE busts in and totally saves the day
