Our Trip to Laughlin

Hi everyone! Well, we're back from our little getaway. We had a blast! We left Wed and got back Fri. It was a quick one but packed with family fun. Lexi and Cameron said they want to live there, I thought that was pretty funny.

On Wed we walked around the hotel to see what was around. They have a beach with nice palapa umbrellas, lounge chairs and jet ski and paddle boat rentals. An adult pool and a family pool. We took the kids to the arcade after we walked around and Wed night we rented "Game Plan", we all absolutely loved this movie, it just makes you want to hug your kids tight and love all over them.

On Thurs we spent the day at the pool. The weather was beautiful and the sun was hot. The kids swam and made friends and then we went back to the room to eat and shower. The kids were pretty wiped out and took little naps as they attempted to watch some cartoons. We visited the arcade after dinner and then headed to the outlet mall and did some shopping. That evening we went to the movies and saw Horton hears a who. They loved it, it was a cute movie.

Laughlin is where Vic and I met 10 years ago, so after the movie we revisited the lounge that we met at and the coffee shop that we had our first date, so to speak. It was neat being able to show the kids our beginning and to retell the story. After that we went back to our room and settled in to some tv and then bed!

Here are some pics of our adventure!

Easter Blessings!!!!!!!!!!

Here we are at church on Easter Sunday. It's been 7 years today that we've been attending CCGV and what a blessing it has been!

He Is Risen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a glorious day today is for us. Our Savior rose from the dead so that we might live! We celebrated at church today and so many souls were given to the Lord. Service was beautiful and to top it all off Lexi, my 7 year old daughter decided she was ready to accept the Lord as her personal Lord and Savior. Of course it hit me like a ton of bricks! I was overjoyed and so moved by her excitement. They gave all the children in her class today an opportunity to raise their hand if they wanted to accept the Lord and to say the sinners prayer. Lexi said she raised her hand right away and repeated the prayer. This was so wonderful because I have never talked to her about it as I wanted it to be her choice in her own time. There is no greater joy than to see your children walk with the Lord. Although she is young, she loves the Lord in such a pure and childlike way. I pray that she will continue to grow in the knowledge of her Lord and Savior.

Here's Lexi warmly displaying her certificate documenting the day she accepted Christ into her heart. What a precious moment!!!!!!!!!!!!

The fun began Sat with our traditional egg coloring and decorating. The kids had a blast with their kits which contained everything they needed to make some glorious eggs!

This was a great kit for only $1 at Walmart. It had a memory game and lots of stickers appropriate for Easter Sunday.This is a book that we have read for the past couple of years while the children are still young and grasping the concept of Easter and it's true meaning. It's very colorful and playful yet to the point in explaining the true meaning of Easter on a kid's level. Here are some pictures of the kids hunting for all 12 resurrection eggs. If you're looking for some, they have them at Walmart as well as some great t-shirts that have a Jesus theme.

After we took our Sunday afternoon naps, we went to a carnival down the street. Its was a blast!!!
This wave was for you grandma and pop-pop!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday: Day of The Cross-Suffering

In the her book "No Ordinary Home", Carol Brazo has a chapter on special things that her and her family do during Holy Week. Here is an excerpt from that chapter on Good Friday:

" I had been struck all spring by the holes in the hands of Jesus. Holes in His hands. Holes in His feet. A gaping hole in His side. Holes in the one person who was whole. Those holes, those punctures in the Holy One, were made to match the holes in my soul, in my psyche, in my body and spirit. The holes that left me crippled were healed by the holes meant to cripple Him who knew no holes. And so I came to view the cross, not as an instrument of torture, but as an instrument of healing.

Each of us, from oldest to youngest(my four year old), took a piece of paper and listed our holes. We catalogued those places inside us that knew sin intimately, places where wholeness was not known. And then we left the comfort and beauty of John and Wendy's living room and went out to the carport.

There on the ground was an old, ugly, blood-smeared, eight-foot cross. A crown of thorns desecrated its "head". Large railroad spikes violated the "hands and feet." And there, to the side, was a hammer and a can of nails. In small family groups we took our list of sins, our catalogue of holes, and nailed them to the healing place. Small children nailed easily and seemed completely finished. Adults flinched with the sound and found it less accessible. Yet each of us sought healing in that place, and He who had suffered on those boards came and walked among us, touching this one and that one with hands that bore holes.

Communion followed. The bread and the cup were taken at the foot of that killing device, now littered with slips of sin.

It was GOOD FRIDAY. A small white sheet of paper bearing the stains of my humanity was left at the cross in the carport. Belonging to the race that yelled "Crucify Him," I am set on a path that leads to life. Set there by the One we crucified. Healed by His wholeness.

Holy Week Faithbooking Challenge

Here's a challenge I came across on Faithfully Yours:

As we are celebrating Holy Week this week, I challenge you to do one of two layouts.

The first is Easter Traditions. How do you celebrate Easter? What activities are special to you? How do they remind you of Christ's sacrifice on the cross?

The second layout you might consider is reflections on the cross. What does the cross mean to you? What has Christ done for you?

Make Your Own Resurrection Eggs

Click on the link and you will find instructions on how to make your own resurrection eggs. I came across this on another site and thought it was great for those of you who might not have purchased your own. Get the kids to help, this will help further reinforce the true meaning of Easter. This is a great sight for homeschoolers as well, I have printed many activities in the past from this sight. Enjoy!!!!

Day 10

Well can you imagine my excitement as I woke up this morning to my final day of this cleanse. I can't quite express it, but I have never been so excited to go to the grocery store. I wanted to make sure I had everything I needed for the next few days. You are supposed to get off the cleanse by drinking freshly squeezed OJ and then you move to a homemade vegetable soup. Of course starting on the broth. Well, if you open my fridge you will find a huge stock pot filled with soup and a container of OJ that I made. I also got some probiotics so that I can replace the good bacteria that was flushed out of my intestines during the cleanse. This will aid in the digestive process as well.

No salt water cocktail for me thank you very much! After drinking OJ and soup for a couple of days you can move onto some nuts and salad and then you can resume your normal diet.It says if you have a lot of gas or problems with getting off the lemonade that you should return to the lemonade until your body is ready for food. I'm hoping all will go well for me. I think it will. However they do suggest a vegetarian diet. It's been 10 years since I was on a vegetarian diet. I definitely will incorporate lots of greens into my diet but I don't think I will be cutting out my protein from chicken, fish and turkey. I do want to eat healthier and feel as good as I can though.

So I'm 7lbs lighter and all cleaned out. It's a good feeling. I know this will be something that I will try to do twice a year, I just would like to recover from the memory of this one first!!! LOL! So, if anyone want to come over and eat with me, I have plenty of fresh veggie soup!!!!!! Till tomorrow, smiles!!!!!


As I was surfing the web for inspiration I was so blessed to come across this song by Nicole Nordeman, "Why". Why did He do what He did? As Easter is approaching I have been meditating, as many of us are, on what Jesus endured for us and how we are who we are today because of what He did. I pray that you will find some time to reflect on the events leading up to the resurrection. Know that you were loved way before you were even conceived and it is because of you that He did what He did. Oh how he loves you!!!!!!

Day 9 Master Cleanse

Praise the Lord day 9 is over. Today was much better. I got a lot of sleep last night and I drank a lot of water after doing the salt water flush. That made a difference. I actually got out of the house today with my family. We went to find Cameron a dresser for his room since he's been living off the floor for awhile. Found an armoire instead at less than what the dresser would have cost. I just love the clearance center!!!!!!

Am I hungry????? OH HECK YEAH!!!!!!!!! More so than ever. Today when I was making sandwiches for the kids to take on the car ride, I about ate their bread through my nose! So much for staying away from temptation. However I did it in front of my family and knew that it wouldn't go any farther than a good sniff. Not quite sure what I thought that would accomplish but who cares, because I have finally made it to day 10. One more full day to go and I am done. Till tomorrow, God bless!!! and enjoy your food!!!! LOL!

Stats so far

Ok, so far I have lost 6 lbs and 3 inches off my waist. I have not excercised at all but I plan to as soon as I finish this cleanse. I see things I haven't seen in years, which is pretty cool. I'm much more comfortable in my pants and I'm able to wear things that have been hanging in my closet untouched. So come Friday I can say goodbye to the salt water cocktail!!!!!! Oh so sad, NOT!!!! I'll keep you posted.

Day 8

Whoo hoooo the end of another day. I'm hanging on by threads people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Day 9 is soon approaching and I can hardly wait. I did my salt water this morning at 8 and had a pretty unsettled stomach the majority of the day. Not sure if I mentioned my chills. I have had them for days. I am freezing cold and unable to warm up. I definitely needed to drink more today but I was having a problem with everything wanting to come back up. Again, I wasn't able to get a lot of sleep and that makes this cleanse very difficult. Praise the Lord I will be able to sleep in tomorrow and I will do just that. Let's see if that makes a difference. I am going to dream about BROTH!!!!!!! That's what I get in a couple of days. Mouthwatering vegetable broth. Maybe I'll get wild and have chicken broth. So if you could keep praying for me I would be ever so grateful, because I want to stop really bad!!! BUT I'M NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Phil 4:13

F.R.O.G Day 7

Oh my goodness, it's 12:42 in the morning and I should be asleep, but I'm not. So day 7 is over. I must say it is not getting any easier but my tongue which was coated with a white coating is now starting to return to it's pink color. That's encouraging because they say when your tongue gets back to normal than that's an indicator that you're done with your cleanse.

I have been finding myself very excited about what's going on inside my body and clearing out the junk. I visited some websites on various cleanses and what I saw was almost too gross to talk about. Alien looking things were expelled from this one girl while she was on a cleanse. Yike's maybe that's where all the PMS is coming from!!!!! I haven't experienced anything gross or too weird but it's not over yet. Man I hope those alien looking things are not inside of me!!!lol

Today was a mental battle. I just couldn't stop thinking about real food touching my mouth again. I really want to eat. It's a little torturous. They said that the cravings would go away but that hasn't happened yet. I think I may have needed to drink more water today but everytime I drank water it made me so naseaus. I just want to eat a healthy diet, however, this will be a slow process being that I will have to replenish all the good bacteria in my intestines to help me digest the food.

I was told that day 2 and day 7 are the hardest and so far I must concur. But nothing worthwhile comes easy, right?

After my hard day, I think about what Jesus did for us on the cross and my little bout with a liquid cleanse to have a healthier body just doesn't seem to compare, what do you think? LOL!

As usual, as one day is up and the next day is down, I find myself meditating on the Lord and really depending on Him to give me strength. The word for today is FROG (Fully Rely On God). That's what I have to do. It's down to the wire. I haven't come this far to quit, so I am going to strap on my big girl panties and persevere!!! Would you mind praying for me, I really could use it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Day 10 where are you????????????????????

Day 6 of the Master Cleanse

Well, hello there. I've been wanting to post but just couldn't quite get to the computer. I did however journal my experience thus far. It's day 6 and I can hardly believe it. Day 10 is drawing closer and it can't come soon enough.

As I said in my first post, the evening of
day 1 was pretty rough.
Day 2,
Wed was great once I recovered from my salt water cocktail!!! I did however have pretty sensitive teeth, perhaps from all the acid from the lemons but drinking through a straw resolved that issue.
Day 3, Thurs was amazing, I felt full of energy which was very encouraging. It took me 10 minutes to drink the salt water and was releasing the toxins within 15 min. I continued to release these toxins for a solid hour. I realized that getting up from my throne was pointless. So instead I remain until I know it's safe to get up. It looks as if the major portion of the flush is done in an hour but within the 2-3 hours that follow there are about 2 more trips for me. *** If you are going to do this cleanse than I recommend you leave a 3-4 hour window of time to be home just to be safe.

Getting to sleep was a little difficult though because my mind was jumping. I wonder if it's from all the sugar in the maple syrup? I'm not a caffeine drinker so I think the syrup made me feel jumpy. Once I did fall asleep I slept hard. Usually I get up a lot and have interrupted sleep but not on this cleanse. I just need to work on getting to bed earlier and getting more hours in because this cleanse is pretty exhausting on your body.
GET PLENTY OF SLEEP ON THIS CLEANSE!!!!!!!! You'll feel better.

The Salt Water Cocktail
32 oz warm distilled/spring water + 2 teaspoons sea salt (YUM aren't you just salivating for one of these?)

So I drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, the first time I did it it took me 40 mins. Now I'm down to 8 mins. It's still just as gross but the quicker you get it down the faster you will get those toxins out of your body.

Day 4 Fri Ok, so Fri was not so good. I had a faithbook workshop scheduled at 10 am and I hadn't gotten to bed until, 3 am. I was up at 8am and I didn't do the salt water because I didn't want to be stuck in the bathroom. This upset my system quite a bit. I decided to drink the salt water after the workshop so I had to keep an empty stomach. By 2 pm I felt pretty weak and shaky and altogether not so good. After I drank my salt water I was pretty much flushed out within 2 hours but then I had the chills the rest of the night and felt very naseaus. Even though I drank 7 lemonades, I felt dehydrated. I got to sleep by midnight and slept like a rock until 10:30 am. My body definitely needed the sleep.

Day 5 Sat HALF WAY THERE!!!!!! WHOO HOOO YIPEE EYE AYE!!!!!! Not too excited, lol! Anyway I drank my salt water in 8 mins, although I must admit I almost tossed my cookies on the last gulp. I was talking to myself by that point and it worked! I kept it down and proceeded to lie on my side for 15 mins. My friend told me that you should lay on your side after drinking it. Well I got my bible study done during my time on the throne and then visited the cleansing room( that's what I call it now) 2 more times. I wasn't ready to leave the house until about 5 pm because my tummy just wasn't feeling so great. I noticed that I had quite a bit of mucous in my throat and was hoarse. The cayenne pepper that is in this cleanse is supposed to help break up the mucous in your body.
*** I can't take the heat from regular cayenne so I take the COOL CAYENNE capsules. They won't bother your stomach.

AM I HUNGRY?????????????
Honestly, yes! But as soon as I drink my lemonade I'm fine. You just can't let too much time elapse between your drinks. Then you'll get messed up. Everything smells so good and I can almost taste everything I smell.

Day 6 Sat Well, I can hardly believe it's day 6, I want it to be day 10 but I'll get there soon enough. It was a little rough this morning. I got up much earlier than normal and unfortunately went to bed late as usual. Because I had to sing at church I could not do the salt water flush. This made me feel very uneasy, foggy headed, shaky and overall uncomfortable. Other than that I am doing well right now. It's 3 pm and all I really need is a lemonade and probably a couple hours of sleep. Whenever I don't get enough sleep I seem to have a harder time with my symptoms. However, I must admit I am a little excited that I was able to wear one of the outfits my hubby bought me for Christmas. I couldn't button the pants but today they were nice and loose around my waist. I have been measuring myself as I am so curious to see what will happen as a result of a liquid diet. So far I have lost 2 inches off my waist and 1 inch off my hips and 4 lbs off my weight. It will be interesting to see where I will be at by day 10 and then how much of that will be water weight. I'll keep you posted.

So, I am encouraged to run the race with perseverance and cross the finish line. I keep praying " Lord we can do this, keep me strong, carry me when I get weak." He's been good, my best friend by my side. I feel His hand upon me, gently nudging me forward and it's a beautiful vision.

How are you today? Any challenges or praise reports? Let us know. Place your post here and let us build one another up, encouraging and exhorting the name of Jesus. Thanks for being a part of my journey so far. I would love to be a part of yours too! Until tomorrow, God Bless!!!!

Self Control and Diligence

Ok, so I decided yesterday to start a cleanse. The master cleanse to be specific. This is a 10 day cleanse which rids your body of toxins. You drink a special concoction they call lemonade about a gazillion times a day and start your morning with a yummy 32 oz glass of sea salt water. After 10 days your colon is cleansed and so is your body.

So that sounds pretty good huh? Well, it's pretty intense not for the fainthearted or weak-stomached, which I always considered myself to be (like my new words?). Last night I experienced some intense discomfort and was really questioning whether or not to continue. I was quite dizzy, spinning to be precise and feeling very ill, chills and all. However I knew that the beginning would be very rough. My biggest fear was the salt water. Having such a sensitive system and already feeling quite sick to my stomach, I didn't think that I could do it. But after some help from my girlfriend I drank the nasty concoction while listening to her talk on the phone about much more entertaining things, her scraproom, which makes me very happy!

Then the fun began!!!!! I excercised like never before. Running back and forth to the bathroom in record time, let me tell you, it was a sight considering I was trying to fry eggs for my daughter. Needless to say it took 45 mins for those eggs to get fully cooked. So for the next 2 hours the toxins were being purged and I immediately started feeling better. Now I am drinking my lemonades! 1 down 6 more to go!

Ok, so where is God in all of this???? As I searched my heart for the reasons why I was doing this cleanse, God brought many things to my mind. At first I thought it would be a good way to lose a few pounds of unwanted fat. Then I thought it would be a great way to get a fresh start with my eating habits, ya know, getting rid of the cravings for unhealthy foods. I have heard a lot about these cleanses and how it helps with many ailments and I thought it would be good for clearing up my face, helping with allergies & asthma and some other areas of concern. I figured it would be better than a colonic and less embarrassing so why not.

Well, the bible study I am doing has been a big motivating factor in this cleanse. Sounds weird I know but let me explain. There are many things in life that we choose to do that are not always best for us. Eating and taking care of your health is one of those areas that we can make poor choices. I found myself complaining about certain areas of my life that after much prayer and meditation, I realized I was in control of. I just wasn't taking control because of a lack of self control and diligence. There are certain foods that I know make me sick and habits that I know are simply a result of indulgence. Do I have the right to complain???? No, definitely not. When that little voice tells me, Mel you shouldn't do that, that's the same as when the Lord is convicting me of something that I shouldn't do. He desires us to be self controlled in all situations. To seek Him in all things. For me, I knew the Lord was telling me, be self controlled, take care of what I have given you within the limitations that you have been given. Yes, I have limitations, so what! So I can't eat everything that someone else may be able to eat, I have allergies etc, but there is still a lot that I can eat if I am diligent to seek out those things. So it may require a little extra care but that is what God gave me and this is how he made me. Don't you think He want's to use it for His glory? Yes, He does. He gives all of us a thorn in the flesh. What is yours?

What is your thorn in the flesh????? How will you go about being self controlled and diligent in managing what God gave you and then using it for His glory????

I must tell you, I never thought that I could get past last night, but I prayed "God help me to get through this, to stay focussed and committed, to be diligent and self controlled. He sent me a friend to give me strength, he gave me a clear mind to meditate on His word and a great sense of peace. I am not sure what will happen in the next 9 days but I will continue to seek the Lord's guidance and with Him by my side I anticipate the joy of finishing this cleanse, experiencing the benefits and knowing that it will only be possible with God by my side.

God is not interested in your ability, He is interested in your availability

If you say go is the word for today. This week I have been studying about obedience in our women's bible study. As I was studying last week, the Lord laid If you say go on my heart and into my margin it went. Today as I was sorting through all the emotions from yesterday's events, this song was playing through my mind. When someone you know has passed away it really makes you think about what you are doing. Sometimes we don't understand what God is doing yet we can take comfort in His word and His promises. He is an all knowing God and His ways are higher than our ways. No matter what life throws at us, He is there with His hand extended out to us. There is nothing that will happen in our life that God doesn't know about or that He can't equip us to handle. Therefore, if He is calling you to do something, don't you think He will make sure you have everything you need to accomplish His will? Obedience is the outward sign of our love for Him. If He says go then go! If He says wait, then wait! Here are the lyrics to If you say go. May the Lord give you the strength to do what He is asking you to do and may you do it whole heartedly today!!

If You say go, we will go
If You say wait, we will wait
If You say step out on the water
And they say it can't be done
We'll fix our eyes on You and we will come

Your ways are higher than our ways
And the plans that You have laid
Are good and true
If You call us to the fire
You will not withdraw Your hand
We'll gaze into the flames and look for You

What are you doing with your time?????

This morning I received a call telling me that my friend's son was killed in a car accident last night. It was such a shocking call, never one you can be prepared for. She is a believer and her son knew the Lord, he just struggled to walk with Him. After taking it all in, I gave my friend a call and to my surprise she was doing amazingly well. She was resting in God's grace and mercy. She believed that God spared her son a life of agony here on earth by taking him home. This was such a testimony because truly to be separated from the body is to be present with the Lord, if you are a believer(2 Cor 5:6-8) and right now I believe he is healed of all his infirmities and resting with our awesome, loving and merciful Creator!

She shared how God had been preparing them. In the last 4 days they had been able to spend a lot of time with their son, praise the Lord! Which leads me to my next thought.... What are you doing with your time??? Are you spending it with the people that you love? Have you told your loved ones how much you care for them? Have you shown them how much you love them? Don't take a moment for granted because we are not promised another one.

Is God calling you to reach out to someone or share the gospel with them? What are you doing with your time? Where do you stand with the Lord? Do you know for sure where you are going when your time here on earth is over?

In honor of my friend and her son here are the lyrics to I'LL FLY AWAY and to all of those who have lost a loved one may you find comfort in these words.

Some glad morning when this life is over
I'll fly away
To that home on God's celestial shore
I'll fly away

I'll fly away oh glory
I'll fly away (in the morning)
When I die hallelujah by and by
I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
I'll fly away

Oh how glad and happy when we meet
I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I'll fly away

Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds

May the Lord of peace rain down upon this family and use the life of their son as a testimony to others who are experiencing the same kinds of trials that he did. May many be turned from their destructive path and receive hope and revival.

Quote for the day

"In order to experience revival, most of us do not need to hear more truths; we simply need to obey that which we already know." -Del Fehsenfeld Jr.

This quote is like dynamite, it can be explosive is we let it. It is so simple a statement yet so difficult to carry out. We desire change, yet are not willing to make any changes. We wonder why nothing is happening but what are we resisting? What are we unwilling to surrender? To give up? To change? We usually know what we need to do but are not willing to do it. I challenge you...
listen and obey. Take a step of faith and carry out what you know you need to do and experience an explosive revival in your life.

Lexi & Cameron

Ok, so every momma is proud of her children, but these kids are so darn cute I can hardly stand it. Here are some pics of my 2 blessings this past Christmas.

Crop at Calvary Chapel

The pictures below are from a crop I recently hosted at our church and it was so incredible because of all the ladies who were there. I was able to conduct a couple of classes, one being an introduction to faithbooking and the other a technique class. We had a make & take, a garage sale table where you could trade your trash for treasure, an inspiration table filled with displays, technique boards and altered items. This area consisted of a large corner of tables which we called "Creative Corner". We even had a little store filled with Close to my heart products, visit my website for more inspiration or shop online at We called that the "creative corner store."

Meals were fantastic too. 3 yummy meals on Sat, snacks and drinks round the clock, what more could a girl ask for!We had such a blast and it was a blessing for all of us. We are having them quarterly!!!!!! The next one will be May 23-24. Visit the website to get more info:
