About Me

My photo
Hello, My name is Ester. I absolutley adore Jesus! He is the center of my life. I am nothing without him. He has allowed a dream of mine to come true. I've always wanted a little boutique. I've been praying for the right time, the time is now! I am the mother of 3. I love my children, they keep life so exciting. I homeschool and I have one in traditional school. I love to craft, it could be a full time job. I love it that much. I like sewing, baking, bow- making, and all things family! I am married to my highschool sweetheart, you can read about that on my other blog. www.loveinmyhouse.blogspot.com.

I am in school!

I don't know if I've ever mentioned that I am a full time grad student. I have been back in school for over a year.  I prabably don't talk about because, I wish it wasn't true.  I am working on getting my teaching certification.  I really want to be a board certified teacher so that I can teach in any state.  I can't believe that I am a student again.  It's so funny being in school, it shows my age!!! I just remember being a little bit younger, taking power naps and pulling all nighters!! Haha, I surely can't do that now.  I can barely keep my eyes open beyond 10pm.  I also thought that I need something extra in addition to working part-time, homeschool, homemaking and crafting.  I am learning Spanish.  I was thinking ( well I actually don't know what I was thinking) that Spanish would make me more marketable in my teaching career.  One of the things my Spanish class uses is Rosetta Stone.  So we got a copy for the children to use while I am learning it to.  This is a copy:

I finally did it!!

I guess you guys need a family update!!! Things are tough right now. I never said praying for an unbelieving spouse would be easy. Right now they are the opposite of easy. Praying for someone that some days you don't like is VERY humbling. Seriously!!! I have had to surrender the Mr. to the Lord. Things were at a very unhealthy balance. I will continue to pray for wisdom on this situation. I really want to make sure that I am ALWAYS being an example of Christ's love when I deal with him. Let me just tell you, it takes God's supernatural power to keep me and my mouth in order.  Please let's continue to pray for all unbelieving spouses!!
Whelp folks, I finally bought a new (to me ) car.  I really wanted the one in the picture (my previous post) but it didn't work out.   The family was super sweet though!!!  I found something that I like almost as much.  I did all the paperwork but I can't pick it up until Monday.  I'll post pics soon.  I am slightly freaking out just a bit.  I bought it from Honda but I bought it AS- IS!!! So if I drive off that lot and it breaks down, I'm stuck like chuck!!! I am praying that it will not do that!!  I thought I would be super excited, but I wasn't.  I was more like Yikes!!
 I am really thankful though.  I have been searching and praying and this was a great deal on this Honda. Let's also be praying that this will last us a good long time, with out any problems!!

This is it on the lot at the dealership!

Car shopping!!!

I have learned more about cars in the last week than I EVER wanted to know!!!  Today I met a really nice family while looking to purchase their car.  She ( the mom) loved the Lord, I could just tell!! I have been praying, praying and praying.  I pray that this is it, because it was LOVE at first sight for me.  Of course I have a lot to consider, especially when everyone involved needs to be on the same page!!! You know the scripture that say, "be anxious for nothing".  Yea, that's harder than it looks!!  Tomorrow I will take the van (the one I saw today) in for an inspection.  I will pray to God that everything clears and pray that everyone is on one accord!!  Hopefully tomorrow I'll be driving home in a new to me vehicle!!!  I need all of my friends to pray over this Honda:

I really would like to buy her, if she is what God has for me!!! So pray, pray, and pray!!! My other sweet beloved car is on the way to car heaven.  She gave me some really good years!!

When it rains it pours!!!!!

I could start this post with how everything is falling apart, but I won't.  I really want to tell you all how messy things are right now, but that won't do any good.  I could tell you about how much uncertainty I have about several different things, but that won't make it any better. Seriously, I keep thinking of the words of a song that says:
But when I fix my eyes on all that you are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face
And don't look around
Any place I'm in
Grows strangely dim
I know that God is calling me to deeper levels of depending on HIM, yikes!! I know that He wants me to trust HIM more than my safety nets.  YIKES!!!  I tease my sister that I am NOT type "A" but I am a strong  "B+" . I like to know the plan. Oh, how God must laugh at our plans!!!  Today I said, " When it rains, it pours" and God's response was, " That's right daughter, when I rain my blessings upon you I pour them!! When I rain life into a situation, it pours!! When I am any situation you allow, I will POUR out my Spirit!!!" Wow God!!! Just Wow.

Welcome Back!!

Hello Everyone, I've missed you and my blog!!! I don't know how people blog for a living.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to blog.  However, I just couldn't keep up through the summer.  Well, a lot has happened since we last spoke.  My dear friend Belinda got married!!! Her wedding was Victorian themed.  It was very pretty.  She even had belly dancers. 

My boy getting smooches from the Bride!!
Focus on the Bride!!

I really enjoyed being back in Nashville, even if it was only a day!  We still really miss Nashville.

I also got the honor of helping my big sister get her classroom together!! I must admit it made me miss my classroom days.  Not all the paper work and actual work, just making things pretty!! I had fun.  We went with a coffee house theme, Longmire's Learning Cafe. I have some pictures but of course I can never get them to act right when I want to post.  I have more updates!!!  I will be back to catch you up!
