postheadericon Prayer Request Blog Hop #1 Week of 1/29-2/4

This is a static post and will stay on the top until later this week. Scroll down for the latest post.

Prayer Request Blog Hop

 

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.  Psalm 17:5-7

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:1-3

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:5-7

 

Do you have a prayer request?  Do you know someone who is need of being lifted up in prayer?

This is a blog hop to link your prayer requests.  There is plenty of room for an explanation.  If you have a blog post to go with the prayer request, please link to the post.

I have a Prayer Request Journal where I write down the names of the people that I am praying for and I prayer over my journal every day.  What methods do you use for your prayer requests?

Hear my prayer, LORD; listen to my cry for mercy. Psalm 86:5-7

May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry. Psalm 88:1-3

But I cry to you for help, LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you. Psalm 88:12-14

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:15-17

postheadericon Why I Started Blogging

Divider

I’m not sure why I started blogging, but I first started my blog in May 2007.  I had written a few poems and I guess I was looking for a place to share them, and that’s how my blog was formed.  My first poems I posted are Welcome and Walk on the Beach.  The beach poem is one of my favorites.  My first real post that I wrote was Why Am I a Mom? After I wrote it and read through it a few times, I realized that I enjoyed writing and I thought I was pretty good at it, even if I do say so myself.  I am notorious for never being satisfied with something I create, or I just don’t plain like it.  This I liked and my intention was to record the days of my life.  Unfortunately, life interferes and then I kept taking on other projects, such as My Leah Rose ~Princess in Training.  Since then I’ve tried a variety of blogs, some I just didn’t keep up with.  Some I did just for the fun of planning the layout, creating the graphics, and then moving on.

But I have been the most faithful to this blog, Georgia Angel.  The design and layout stayed the same for a very long time.  Last year, I finally tried the Artisteer program and created a blogger template with my “ivy” design.  I doubt I will ever change the look of it.  But who knows, one day I might decide I want one of those shabby, chic sprappin’ lookin’ blog templates.  I always think they are so cool when I’m visiting other blogs, but so far, I haven’t run across one that just screams “that’s me”.  So, ivy it is.

I chose the ivy design, because my maiden name is “Ivey”.  My mother incorporates ivy leaves in everything in her house.  We do carry our name proudly, because our ancestors were fine people, especially my Daddy.  It’s funny that I would choose ivy leaves as part of my design now, I always hated being called “poison ivy” when I was in elementary school.  I could be stirred up like a hornet’s nest faster than you could shake a stick at it, and my head would be buzzin’ because I was ready to pummel somebody around the ears.  More than once, I was chastised for my extreme temper.  But not once, was the “bully” ever chastised for calling me names.  It was frustrating.

So, now here I am 3-1/2 years later…  I haven’t blogged consistently, but I do keep coming back.  The inspiration isn’t always there and I fall back on blog hops and memes to coast by, but every now and then, I come up with some articles that I think are worthy of my time.  I hope you enjoy them too.

I hope to continue blogging for a very long time.  Here are some of my other projects, if you would like to check them out.

And, my latest and greatest that I am working on… Linky List Library.  This one is still in the construction phase.  But I love collecting linky lists of all kinds, and memes, and challenges.  When I get done with it, it should be a HUGE resource list for those new bloggers looking for more traffic to their blogs.  Personally, I don’t have a lot of followers, but that’s no biggie.  I’m just thankful to have an outlet to write and keep myself occupied.

Hope you have a great weekend!  See you around!

Keepin' Company Thursday

Hey ya’ll, Happy Thursday.  Today, I am participating in a Blog Hop called Keepin’ Company Thursday hosted by Traci at Traci66 and her sister, Terra at Heck of a Bunch.  I hope you will join me in finding some new blogs to follow, and maybe a hitch up a follower or two of my blog {smile/wink}.

* 1. Copy and Paste the ‘Keepin’ Company Thursday” button and write a blog post about it on your page, explaining to your blog followers how it works and how to join. (You can find the code the right side bars at Traci66 and on Heck of a Bunch).

* 2. Follow the first two blogs, which are the hostesses, Heck of a Bunch and Traci66. We will follow back.

* 3. Follow the “LUCKY” #3 spot winner.

For this hop to really work you’ll need to follow the ‘honor code’ and help us spread the word about Keepin’ Company Thursday.

*4. Go to as many blogs on the list as possible and follow them.

*5. Leave them a comment saying. “Hey! I’m a new follower from “Keepin’ Company Thursday” Check out my blog too! www.yourbloghere.blogspot.com Thanks!” They should all follow you back because that’s what this is all about!

*6. If you get a follower via Keepin’ Company Thursday please follow them back.

*7. Add your blog name and the URL to your Keepin’ Company Thursday Post to the linky below

* You can also grab the code below to add to your post if you want the thumbnails to appear in your post.

How to get to be in the #3 spot

* If you add the Keepin’ Company button to your sidebar or post and leave either of the hostesses, Heck of a Bunch or Traci66, a comment letting us know where to find it we will randomly draw a blog to be in the #3 spot next week. We would really appreciate if you did this step so we can spread the word about Keepin’ Company Thursdays.

This week #3 spot goes to:
Peanut’s Mommy
A note from Ashley

postheadericon My Morning Routine

Divider

Bloggy Moms January Blog Hop

I am a creature of habit.  I have to be.  Or, when it comes later in the day, I’ll wonder… did I brush my teeth?  Or did I put on deoderant?  When you get old the forgetfulness just takes over.  Anyway, I have to do things in a certain order every day to ensure that I have done it.  I’m a slow riser, and I always dread getting up.  And don’t speak to me before 10 am in the morning, or all you will get from me is probably just a grunt while I’m hooked up to the IV line with Dr. Pepper pumping in as fast as it will go.

I get up, bathe (and I bathe myself in the same order every time — I can stand in there for 5 minutes trying to remember what I’m supposed to be doing if I do anything out of order).  I wash my face, brush my teeth, and dress.  In that exact order.  I wake up the 7 year old, fix her breakfast and her lunch.  Now, Leah, she can bounce up out of the bed all chirpy and happy and talking non-stop.  Ugh!  I can see cheerleading in her future one day.  It’s a painful process for me to go through.  I take my meds, she takes her vitamins.  She eats, brushes her teeth, and gets dressed.  She puts away her dirty clothes, then we get her backpack together for school.

That is pretty much our routine.  Two things that could throw off my day…  no Dr. Pepper (which I’m going to experience tomorrow morning on the first day back to school) and doing something out of order.

Once I talked to the pediatrician that the 7 year old might be a little OCD.  Everything has to be “in order”… the order in which we are doing our activities for the day, the order in which she plays, etc.  The doctor told me not to worry about it unless she started to wash her hands repeatedly for no reason, or something like that.

But now that I look at it, she gets that “I gotta have a routine” routine from me. LOL.
