Prayers Please

As these final days unfold..Our fast is almost at the end. Yea! BUT I am learning more and more things about myself and my walk with God.

My family is in need of prayers..My Uncle Dale is having Heart Bypasses tomorrow. My grandmother is not holding out very well. She is full of worries.

I have come to wonder things lately.. Do most "Christian's" attend church only to get something in return or is it because they truly love God and Going for the fellowship.

For instance:Someone was going to church ..wanted a pony ...didn't get the pony they quit going to church?

God is not a God of Convenience ..he deserves us at ever season in our life!

Please Pray for our families!

Senior guard’s play drives Springtown girls past Saginaw

SPRINGTOWN — In a physical game, with bodies bumping and crashing to the floor, Springtown senior Christian Cassity had the toughest assignment.

Drive to the bucket.

Springtown coach Ken Thompson figured she could find a lane somewhere against Saginaw’s zone defense, and he was right. His 5-foot-11 guard scored 19 points and put in a driving fourth-quarter layup that stabilized the game for the Porcupines in their 44-36 victory Friday night, earning them what could be a valuable District 6-4A sweep against the Rough Riders.

"We felt like this was a must-win for us," Thompson said.

Which meant finding a way to get inside against Saginaw, which would in turn mean going up against Saginaw post Karli Mellegard.

Any volunteers?

Mellegard made her presence felt, blocking four shots and collecting six rebounds for the Rough Riders (22-6, 7-2 district), but Cassity and fellow guards Christina Jack and Brooklyn Horton got points inside when necessary. Horton went 7-for-8 at the free-throw line in the fourth quarter.

Cassity sank a jumper to start the second half after Saginaw had closed the first half on a 7-0 run that cut the lead to 25-18. Late in the third quarter, after Saginaw’s Gionna Jackson (23 points, five steals) had converted a 3-point play to tie the game, Cassity’s put-back gave the Porcupines the lead back at 33-31.

And in the fourth quarter, after Saginaw missed a second-chance shot that could have cut the lead to one, Cassity drove the lane for a runner that made it 38-33 with 4:20 left and put Springtown (22-5, 8-1) back in control for good.

"We had to win," Cassity said after the matchup of two of the three teams who began the night tied for the 6-4A lead. "The whole team got together the night before and said we needed to win this game."

The Porcupines led 14-5 in the first quarter and 25-11 in the second quarter before Saginaw got its offense going. Jackson scored six consecutive points to cut the lead to 25-18 at the half, and Savanna Trimmer and Mellegard put together another 6-0 run to cut the lead to 27-24 in the third quarter.

But Cassity — who else? — scored the next four points for Springtown for a 31-26 lead, and after Saginaw tied the game, Cassity came through with her seventh and eighth points of the quarter, accounting for all of her team’s scoring in the period.

She also led the Porcupines with nine rebounds.

"The zone that Saginaw is playing right now is tough to score on," Thompson said. "Both teams played really good defense tonight. It was tough for both teams."

Day Four fasting..

Day four fasting....

Still doing well..wondering how I could ever eat without bread . Man, Everything except salad has some sort of bread to it.I am surprised they havent figured out how to bread salad and deep fry it as well.

I am getting tired of blogging lol

I was looking at myspace pages today and noticed something..

1) Kids whos parents monitor their myspace have more self respect ,kids whos parents do not ...well they have a lot of gangster wanna bes in their friends list!
2)What is it with the Dis and dat ? wat wanna and the double I meaning y?
3) I am glad I deleted mine ,but still monitor my girls.

My husband says that myspace and facebook is a social experiment the GOV is conducting.

I also ad this song stuck in my head..Ain't no sunshine when she's gone.
It's not warm when she's away.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long anytime she goes away.

Wonder this time where she's gone,
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away.

And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

Hey, I ought to leave the young thing alone,
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone, only darkness everyday.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,
And this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.
Anytime she goes away.
Anytime she goes away.
Anytime she goes away.

Sometimes a mental breakdown always helps lol

Day One Fasting

This is day one in my 21 day of fasting ..

No facebook, bread or coffee today! yea! I am taking charge in my life and not letting my circumstances affect my outcome! Taking control of what I once thought was uncontrollable. Realizing that we are the outcome of what we think and how we perceive things. In this time of fasting trying to focus more on my God and Family I will blog once a day .
I am Praying hard that this year I will become what God Expects of me. Also what it is that we are suppose to be doing for his purpose in our family . Realizing in this short of time how I thought raising my children was a chore instead of a joy. I am working on having more joy with them from this point on! They have all the Good stuff God and We have instilled in them . I am very happy about that. Holy holy holy to the lord God almighty !
