About Me

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.

Dreams coming true!

I've mentioned several times that I wanted to have a children's clothes boutique. Guess what? It's starting to manifest! I've named my business Lily's boutique, after my sweet and sassy Lily who passed away. Here are a few pictures of my work! Yippee, I'm so excited.

Let them see you!

When it comes to worshiping God, I am a HUGE cry baby!! Right now the song that has me a mess in the car is, Let Them See You.  This song takes me to that place! This song is my heart's cry.  I want people to see Jesus when they see me.  If people saw Ester they would see a mess!! I am a mess without HIM!! I want to live a life totally surrendered to my Father God.  I fail daily  in some area of my life.  Sometimes I eat the wrong food, I'm not patient with the people I love, my thoughts are NOT pure (if you knew have the things that I thought), and other times I am not a good steward over my blessings.  The list could go on, but God see me differently! He sees me in His image.  He see His creation.  I am His masterpiece.  He knows ALL of my shortcomings and He still LAVISHES His love on me. Lord, let them see you.......

Saying NO is so HARD!!

I am sure this could apply to so many things but I am refering to telling my children "NO".  It's easier to some things than others.  It's so hard for me to explain to my children why "we" (me) choose not to watch certain things on TV and listen to certain music.  Before you start giving me the side eye, we don't just listen to Christian music or Christian programming.  However, I am very concerned about the lyrics of a song  and the message of the program.  I do care if it has witchcraft (spells, magic, etc), teenage dating, rebellious children, and etc! I know there are arguments that this is just entertainment.  This could be true, but the Bible tells us to guard our hearts with diligence.  We never know the seeds being planted.  Satan is real! He will use whatever innocent tactics he can to lure us and our children in.  I will not say what is right or wrong.  I can only say it's my conviction and I must say "NO"!  It can be frustrating for them and me! There are times when nothings on they can watch.  I hate it for them.  The can't yet reason why Disney channel is made for children and yet something might be questionable.  They can't understand why other Christian families from church are allowed to watch and listen to certain things.  They don't like the feeling at school when they can't join in the latest episode talk.  It hurts but what would hurt more is not defending my faith and having to answer to God about that. 
My dear children, I do love you.  I wish love always meant warm and fuzzy, but it doesn't. I wish more people felt the same way, but they don't.  I hate that the only shows are baby shows, but they are safe.  You are a precious gift from God.  The world will be waiting on you to try to impose their views on you.  The world can't wait to make you feel like you missed out.  You will have plenty (a lifetime) of fighting for your faith and beliefs.  Right now is your training ground, this is preparation!  The world might not play nice.  You have to practice now!
