And we just found out yesterday that we are having a precious baby boy. We could not be more excited!!!!! However we are heading toward unchartered waters...... we have been  a house of pink and glitter for the past 10 yrs. Not to mention HIGH emotions and a WHOLE lot of drama!!!!!!!! Don't get me wrong we love our girls, we know how delicate they can be and how to handle them. Boys however, will definetly be a new a adventure!!!!!! And I for one am feeling very blessed!!!!!!! I cannot wait to meet my precious baby boy... I am so thankful to be able to experience being pregnant again, as I know there are women out there, who for different reasons are never able to have that experience. I cherish everything about being pregnant this time, as I know this will be our last. This beautiful baby boy, will make our family complete. I cannot wait till June to meet him!!!!

Consistency+ Intensity

I was was doing my workout the other day, on my wii, my loving husband and kids got me the Personal Trainer, and it is AMAZING!!!!!!! I was sweating and ready for my workout to be finished and my animated Trainer was encouraging me, telling me how great I was doing and then "she" said something the got me thinking. "With that consistency and intensity you are headed for great things".  And then the ephiany..........Imagine what God could accomplish thru us, if we would pursue him with consistency and intensity.  I feel that as women we were born intense. We are intense about our husbands, our children, and our home. And with those relationships we must be consistent, our children and husbands thrive on it. Imagine if a marriage had no consistency or intensity? I feel that is the exact reason why marriages fail today and children lash out. Bottom line to be in relationship, to have it flourish you must have both consistency and intensity, to achieve great things. I admit I have not always had both in my walk with the Lord, and that is why I am so thankful we serve a gracious and merciful Lord. However since that revelation the Lord has revealed himself in some mighty ways. And everyday I am purposing to go after him with such fearless intensity and to be consistent in spending time with him, believing in great things. I am so thankful that my God loves me enough to meet me, in my living room, when I am sweaty and tired. And that he was/is/ and always will be consistent and intense with me.

Death= Reflection

Whenever you have a family member pass away, whether you were close or not, it leaves a hole, and definetly make you think about life and how you want to live it, and be remembered. My Uncle passed away last week at the age of 63. He lived in BC for most of my life, and growing up I remember him as the "cool" Uncle, the one who had long hair. wore a leather jacket and smoked. Who would come for a visit bring gifts and then as quick as he came, he would be gone again. As we laid hm to rest on Sat afternoon, I was filled with a sad, regret. Sadden for the fact that my mom has lost her big brother, my grandma, her son, and my cousins lost there father. Regret because I really didn't know him. Sure on a superficial level I did, but not when it came to deep matters of the heart, and it got me thinking.

I want EVERY person in my life to know that I loved them and loved deeply. I want them to know that they mattered and that I invested time in them because I chose to. That I was priveliged to be a part of there lives. That they made me want to be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.

To my Uncle Jim, I wish we had been given more time.......I pray I will see you again someday....I love you xo ox

I find as I approach the big 3-0, my values are changing.....in a good way...I think..

I have never been the confrontational type, infact just the opposite, I was always the one to sweep everything under the rug, anything to keep the peace...that is until lately. The Lord has been pressing me to be honest, not so much with myself, but in my relationships with others. I have learned that if I want others to be honest with me, I better be ready to step up to the plate.

The other day as I was driving to work and listening to UCB, the speaker was talking about... yep, you guesssed it honesty(I beleive the Lord has a great sense of humour) the one thing that spoke to me and that has resonated with me this week is this"100% truth without GRACE is brutality, 100% grace without TRUTH is hypocrisy."

This is what I will strive for daily, this is my new journey....

Well it's here a new decade, time for new experiences, new friends, and tons of new memories!!!!! I wonder what the next ten years will bring for the Beaumont Brigade? This new year brings a couple "firsts" for us. My baby girl starts school in 9 months............sorry i needed a moment there LOL. Katherine turns double digits, seriously where has the time gone?!!! For myself I turn 30!!!!! .....not sure how I feel about that yet...stay tuned. The most exciting part of a new year and new decade, is that I don't have to worry, the Lord know exactly what will happen, and right now that is enough for me!!!!!!!!

Not my Battle

Lately things have been happening around me and too me,people have mistreated me and life has been not fair,however this is not a depressimg post,infact it is just the opposite!!!!!!

I have never felt or been closer to the Lord in all the time I have known him.........usually when life rears it's ugly head I become stressed and almost obsessive on how to "fix" the situation,until this time around. I have even surprised myself in how i am dealing with things. For the first time I am NOT stressing,NOT listening to the lies,oh sure i had/have some moments..i am human, when those moments happen I remind myself WHO GOD says i am, and then it passes. I am putting my trust fully in the Lord and proclaiming his promises over myself and my family!!!!
The coolest thing about where I am right at this very moment is that what the enemy intended for harm,the Lord has used it for his kingdom purposes!!!! We serve an amazing God!!!!!!!!
People I work with,even unsaved family have asked how I am dealing with things,one even asked if I was in a state of denial....funny eh? They think I have completely lost it,when infact it's the complete opposite!!!!!! I have never been more"found" in all my life.....can u say testimony?

I know the Lord has amazing plans for me and my family, we are his children, and he wants nothing more then to give us the best. Although things may get said about me by people whom I loved the most,the battle is not mine to fight,the Lord knows my heart and to me that is more than enough:) I AM LOVED!!!!!!!!!!
