Quick update..

My internet has been acting up, so that is why I have been absent from the blog world these last few days. Right now, blogger is not allowing me to upload pics, so I will save today's post for later in the weekend. It may come Sunday afternoon, cause The Keierleber's have quite a busy weekend ahead. Tomorrow is the high school overnighter, and we will leave directly from there on Saturday to go visit the Boudreaux's and Brother's! (I am so excited). So, sorry for the quick update... I actually have a few bits of exciting news to share, but you will just have to be patient! :)

Let There Be Light!

We went back today and found out that more work was done on our home this morning at 7 AM! Wow! Fine with us! :) Here are lit pictures of our home! :)
Our h♥me! :) Look at that sky! I am so happy in the little things of this house, like we have a covered front porch, (like right over the door, not a full porch... I couldn't think of a better way to describe it). I just like having covered door ways in case of rain so visitors don't get soaked while waiting to be let in.. ya know?
From behind! :) About a 14x14 at least covered patio! :)
Us! :) I forgot to take off that jacket... we are in our foyer...
Our amazing kitchen... yeah, I know its hard to see now... oh, see our big box seat window in the kitchen... you have an awesome view of the lake from there! :)
We found where our mailbox will be... not sure which one yet, but we now it is on that section! Yeah, I know, you could care less, but we think its pretty cool! ;)

PK in his office...

House Update...

We drove to The Kingdom, and this is what we saw in the distance...Yep, that is our frame next to that two story... no roof yet...
When we were there they were still working, and I felt bad taking pics, so we left and returned later... unfortunately it was dark, but you know we will be back sooner than later for better pics... ;)
Our fireplace! :) Since there is no roof yet there are support beams everywhere, so please ignore those and use your imagination! :)
Our kitchen! It is really awesome, but it is hard to tell when it is just a frame, and the support beams do not help with the visual either.
Our kiddos future rooms...
From the living room, this will be a wall, we can see inside now of course, to our bedroom! :)
Paul standing on our back porch! :)
Paul posing on one of the frames to one of our kiddo's room behind him!
Paul and me in our living room with one of our kiddo's room in the background! :) That darn flash always makes me look extra pale! :/
Paul standing in our doorway! Our door is always open to you, (once we have a door of course). ♥

8th of the 8th

I was tagged by my friend, Meredith, to post my 8th picture from my 8th album in My Pictures. My albums are VERY out of order, so I knew this would be fun! Now YOU are tagged too! :)
This is a picutre of me when I was a five year old model. I have one knee on the fence, but since my dress is so big, it looks like I only have 1 leg! ;) (This is from my graduation album... I put lots of old pics together for a graduation slideshow last year).

Houston, We Have a Foundation!

I went out to The Kingdom, and it appears that despite all the rain they were still able to pour our foundation!

If you want to hear Obama actually say that quote, click here.

I went to the DR today and my MRI was perfect so it seems I am ok! Praise the Lord!

In regards to my below post on abortion, please go visit this website: Esther, you must check this out. :) It goes into much detail about abortion, why it is wrong, why people do it, etc. It is a great tool to help you speak to someone considering abortion. Please check it out!

And for the record, with the impending election, need I remind you: "Look, I got two daughters - nine years old and six years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." -Barack Hussein Obama

My new personal favorite, (I will be buying this shirt):
Honestly, they care more about trees than people! Give me a break!

Get this shirt from THIS website!

So last night I was babysitting, and so I got to watch TV, (we don't have TV, well we have a TV but only for movies, we don't have any channels). Anyway, I was watching Law and Order CI. I LOVE all the Law and Orders, and awhile back my uncle pointed something out to me. If there is ever a Christian on the show, he is ALWAYS the bad/guilty guy! UGH! SO TRUE!!! It drives me nuts!!! So last night the episode portrayed an abortion dr getting murdered by a man who read his Bible then prayed for "Lord, steady my hand." Honestly, he is not a true Christian if he thinks that this is ok in the eyes of God. In Matthew, Jesus tells us that anger is the same as murder in God's eyes. He tells us to turn the other cheek. Just reading those few verses prove that God would never ok the murder of a man just to stop him from performing abortions. Now that was irritating, but I was I was also irritated how they victimized the dr and the clinic. "We are just helping people, etc." Now the man shouldn't have been murdered, but he is NO HERO!!! Why does NBC insist on making Christians look evil, and the people who actually do evil in real life are always made out to be heroes?!?

I just want to say that if you or someone you know is considering an abortion, please contact me! My husband and I are adopting and we would love to adopt your child. Consider this, which is worse: 9 months of discomfort, or a lifetime of guilt over ending a child's life? Don't do that to yourself or the child... sacrifice 9 months, and we will happily adopt your baby! Friends, if you hear of someone considering abortion I give you permission to pass along my information. :)

House Update...

Today we went to The Kingdom to show my Dad our h♥me! Here are better pictures than the other day... foundation any day now!!! :)Yep, this was all the stuff I needed PK to describe, and he is once again away... but honestly, do we care... I mean, other than Brooke? ;)
PK showing my dad something, (I wasn't paying attention). ;) He is standing in our kitchen!
Here we are standing in front of our back porch and the fire place will be behind me, (we are in the living room)!
Here we are standing in our kitchen! Fatty McFaterson will be gone soon... she has fell in love with running, and her fat is disappearing as we speak. If you pass her fat on the street, tell it to get lost cause she is no longer welcome at Fatty's house!

Honestly, I need an inexpensive way to celebrate sometime this summer the departure of Fatty ... any suggestions?

Our First Tbone Thursday!

Yesterday was our first Tbone Thursday. For those of you who do not know, Paul and I are the new leaders of the middle school ministry at Cornerstone Community Bible Church, called Tbone. Our first meeting was scheduled for September 11th, but Mr. Ike took care of that. So last night was our first one. Paul and some of our Tbone boys getting into God's Word!

I am SO proud of Paul!!! I knew God had given him the preaching gift, I just thought he would have to grow into it, ya know? Like at summer camp and Wednesday nights with the high school he would lead discussion groups, and while he would do great, I knew he could do better. Well, last night I was watching a seasoned pastor give a sermon to those kids! I was BEYOND proud of him. Praise God for speaking through Paul, and for giving Paul a great first Tbone experience!!!

I FINALLY got my diploma in the mail! Did I mention I graduated December of 2007? Ugh! Finally it's here and I will be able to frame it next to PK's degrees in his office! :)Just for fun... my graduation picture... Yes, we both look VERY different now... ;)

House Update: It's a SMALL World!

We went to The Kingdom tonight and we saw that everything is set for our foundation to be poured!!! YEA!!! We will have a foundation before we know it!
Sorry, we went when it was dark, but if you look close you will see the piping, and all the other stuff that goes into a foundation, (PK is in the gym so I can't ask him all the technical terms). ;) You are looking at the piping for our master bathroom! :)

In some crazy small world news...

My mom told me that one of my parent's friends, (Randy), had just bought a house in our neighborhood. Small world, right? Well, tonight right after we took the above picture our next door neighbor pulled up, so we decided to meet him. Who walked out of the truck? Randy himself! Wow!!! Him being in our neighborhood made us say, "what a small world," but for him to live NEXT DOOR... WOW!!! We really like him, and we are so thankful that we have a great next door neighbor and great across the street neighbor. Now we are just praying that our neighbor on the other side of us will be awesome too! :)

PS, I got the pics from my MRI, and from what I could see it looked normal. Yes, I am no Dr., but if I had a tumor or something that obvious it would have shown up. So I won't find out the actual results till next Wednesday, but from what I could see it looked normal, or at least there was nothing obviously wrong! :)

More from the Farm...

Real quick, my MRI is tomorrow, so please pray that if there is anything to find, that they do!

Oh, and guess what I did today? I ran a whole mile without stopping or dying!!! Meaning, I could have kept going, but my goal is to enjoy running so bringing my self to exhaustion is not a good idea so I quit while I was ahead! :) Maybe Thursday I will go further? ;) For most of you 1 mile is not much, but if you know me at all then you will know that this was a feat that deserves celebration! :)

Ok, Kristin gave me pics she took yesterday at Dewberry Farm, and she got lots of shots of me and JuJu! :) Here are my 2 favs...

Here we are on the hayride on the way to the pumpkin patch. She was very tired if you cannot tell by her expression. I felt special because she wanted me to hold her... 5 minutes later she wanted Mommy! :)
Love this! Kristin had just let out a large, "awww," and had to take a pic. I am glad she did. JuJu was alert and looking around then decided to lay on me! :) (yep, then wanted Mommy). I think you can tell by my face how happy she makes me. She makes me feel so special and loved! I love her as well as the whole Glass family! :)

Motherly Thoughts

Today I was blessed to join the playgroup from our Church on a trip to Dewberry Farm. It was a blast!!! Thank you all for sharing your little ones with me. Kristi and Caryn, we missed y'all today and wished y'all were there. (C, Happy Bday and K, Calvin P was saying how he wishes Abigail was still here at Church on Sunday). :)

Of course you will again see my blog starlet, Julia "JuJu." This picture doesn't seem like much, but when you see it big, you just melt! :)
JuJu again. I accidentally taught her a funny face some months ago, and I wanted to get her to do it on camera. She wouldn't but she gave me a pretty shot anyway! :)
Once again, a shot that doesn't seem like much, but really look at it... PRECIOUS! :)
JuJu spying on the duckies! So cute!
Emily was looking in at the baby chicks... so sweet, huh? :) This little girl looks like the Olsen twins when they were babies... except 50 times cuter and minus the slight monkey resemblance! :)
JuJu's big sister, Gloria. Her blog debut! Such a beautiful shot... she's lookin at the pigs! :)
I am in love with this picture of JuJu... the lighting was SO dark, I had to lighten it. Unfortunetly, it was so dark that I couldn't lighten it enough, but I think you can still see how beautiful it is! :)
This pic is cute, but a million times cuter when looked at in the bigger size. This was during an almost traumatic slide experience, but hey, we got a great shot! ;)

Being with these kiddos showed me something about being a parent, at least for me. I know it will be hard and stressful and I am not naive.... I cannot wait to have kids! I guess it is just the way God made me. I am so care free and stress less around kids. I love kids and they just bring me so much joy. I don't know, but I think that joy way out weighs the stressful times! I love my husband and I always will, (yes, even more than my children), but I am ready for us to be parents. Everybody says to wait and enjoy each other. Why can't we enjoy each other and kiddos?!?! I love seeing Daddies with their kiddos. That would totally make me fall even deeper in love with PK every time I saw him with our kids! People always say how hard it’s going to be, etc, but honestly I am ready. I truly, truly feel that this was one of the main reasons that God put me on this earth: to be a Mommy. This is one of, if not the most high callings in my life. Am I making sense? I'm on a little bit of a rant I guess. I get a little irritated when people tell me to wait, (not the people who truly care about me and are just giving advice), but the people who seem like they would actually change things if they could. Not any of my readers of course, but I think it is so sad that people think they are missing out on life because they have kids! Hey, ENJOY THE BLESSING! :)

I am patient because I know the timing is up to God, but I am just thrilled that our time is approaching soon! After we make our first house payment, (which is about a month after we close), we will see where we are financially and then decide when to begin the adoption process. We are both so excited about this!

2 Years!?!

I am in disbelief that my sister went to be with the Lord exactly two years ago tomorrow. Time is a crazy thing. So is death. It is so hard to comprehend, but I know where she is and that immensely lessens my grief. I couldn't decide which thing to leave out so I am giving y'all a couple writings about her. I know it will be long, but I would appreciate you reading them. The first one is what I said at her funeral. The second is what I said at her 1 year anniversary. The 3rd is a song I wrote f0r her. Here is also a link to the poem I wrote a couple weeks ago: anxiety.

The Eulogy
I’m Tricia, Tracie’s Big sister, as well as Nick and Taylor’s big sister. Every Christmas card, as many of you may remember, we have all dressed alike. There will always be the 4 of us. We were very close. We always played together when we were little, and as young adults, we’ve remained close. There are few families I know of who have a bond like ours, so while this is very hard, and I don’t fully understand the reason this happened, I still am at peace with it. One thing I would like to share with y’all is an analogy which has come to me in the last week. Many of you may be familiar with Carrie Underwood’s song “Jesus Take the Wheel.” These lyrics seem a little hard to swallow in light of recent events. However, if you really think about it, these lyrics are true and can be applied to Tracie. Although we feel Tracie was stolen from us way too soon, we all should find comfort knowing that Jesus DID take the wheel during Tracie’s accident. When Tracie lost control of her car, she easily could have hit on-coming traffic and hurt other people. But Jesus took her wheel and guided her out of everyone else’s way. Not only did Jesus take the wheel in Tracie’s car that day, Jesus also took the wheel in Tracie’s life. Instead of putting her through pain, or putting us through anymore unnecessary pain, He took her immediately. He didn’t allow her to suffer, which also kept us from suffering more. By taking her quickly, He has brought peace to our hearts. For us to have the hope of seeing Tracie again, we need to give the wheel of our lives to Jesus. This is another reason why this song is important for us to remember.

“Jesus take the wheel,
Take it from my hands,
Cause I can't do this all my own,
I'm letting go,
So give me one more chance,
To save me from this road I'm on,
Jesus take the wheel.”

Tracie gave her wheel to Jesus and now she is safe in Heaven with our G’ma. I, too, have given my wheel to Jesus, and I know Tracie and I encourage everyone here to let Jesus take your wheel. I still miss my sister but since I KNOW she is in Heaven, I have the peace to know I will see her again someday.

1 Year Anniversary
The days following the accident were awful for me. I didn’t eat or sleep for days. During these days I was worrying about one thing. I was worried about Tracie’s salvation. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone goes to Heaven. Sure, some of you are thinking that “hey, Tracie was a good person, why wouldn’t she go to Heaven.” Well, I got news for you, even good people go to Hell. Getting into heaven is not about the good things you do in life… there is only one way to get into heaven. To accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior. In Romans 3:23-24 it says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.”

Those few days after the accident I did question her salvation, until after about 3 days, God showed me that she had indeed given her life to Jesus and that she is in Heaven. After that I was able to eat, sleep, and actually function. I was able to praise God for taking Tracie home as opposed to wishing she were still here. Now, I do miss my sister very much, but I know I will see her again when I go home. I have given my life to Christ and now I know without a shadow of a doubt that I will be in Heaven to see Jesus and Tracie.

Do y’all know without a shadow of a doubt where you are going?

There is hope. That hope is Jesus. Everyone on earth in a sinner, including Tracie, including myself. We are all sinners, and for that none of us deserve to go to Heaven. That is why Jesus came to this earth as a baby. He could have just come down as a 30 year old man, but He had to come down as a baby so He could live His whole life blamelessly. Living a sinless life, Jesus then took up the cross and was nailed to it by our sin. He suffered the fires of Hell for us so we wouldn’t have to. Doing this He opened the gates of Heaven to all who give their lives to Him. In Galatians 2:20 It says “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Since I have been crucified with Christ by giving Him my life, when God looks down to see me He sees Jesus, because Jesus’ blood was shed for me and now covers me. This is why I will be able to go to Heaven. This is why Tracie was able to go to Heaven. This is how you can get to Heaven.

The song I am about to play is called “Homesick.” This song is how I am feeling because I am sad, not because Tracie is dead, but because I am Homesick. I am Homesick because Heaven is my true home. Tracie is there waiting for me, with Jesus and others who came before her. If any of you feel Homesick for Heaven or want to know what it is like to feel Homesick for Heaven, just come talk to me afterwards, and I would be glad to share more with you.

I Miss Her

On a beautiful day
The conditions were right,
For a nice drive home
Not a cloud in sight!

But God had other plans,
And her car lost control
And despite all our prayers
The wreck took its toll.

Oh how I miss her!
I even miss out fights!
I miss our conversations
That lasted through the night!
How I miss my sister!
I miss my friend,
But even though she’s gone,
This is NOT the end!
I will see her again
When my life is through.
We’ll reunite in Heaven,
But still this is true:
I miss her!

None of this seems real
How have two years gone by?
We only had eighteen years,
My, time sure does fly!

Yes, she was my sister,
This couldn’t be more true!
We fought and we loved,
What else do sisters do?

Oh how I miss her!
I even miss out fights!
I miss our conversations
That lasted through the night!
How I miss my sister!
I miss my friend,
But even though she’s gone,
This is NOT the end!
I will see her again
When my life is through.
We’ll reunite in Heaven,
But still this is true:
I miss her!

She is gone and not forgotten
But she’s still is alive!
For she is in Heaven
With our God Most High!

You can join her There,
It is easy to do
Just accept Jesus as your Savior,
And let your love for Him be true!
