Toothless Wonder

Toothless wonder is a book by Junie B. Jones, one of the latest my daughters have read. Have you read June B. Jones books? , that girl is too funny.

Anyway, toothless wonder is also my oldest daughter´s latest nickname (try to say that 3 times really fast). With a month short of turning 8 she has lost her first tooth. Which is amazing enough since I guess any more kids start losing teeth at around 5... ??? I don´t know I just don´t remember it being that early when I was little.....

Yeap, she looks like she was crying before the photo. Daddy had to pull it and the idea didn´t go very good with her....

My girl is growing up.... The funny thing is that now she has 3 more that are loose, she is going to be a toothless wonder for sure pretty soon ;)

But she still has a pretty smile!


Showers of Blessings

A lot sure has happen in the last week. God open and closes door in His time, but when His blessings start, they sure come down fast.

A week from last friday my husband got an email from a job that we thought was pretty sure, they had hire someone else.... it was hard because it wasn´t the first time, and he really didn´t have any other leads on any other jobs. Friday night ad saturday was hard, but we knew we would praise God even in the storm.

On monday morning he got a call from an old job giving him a phone number of someone she knew from church who was looking for an accountant in a fast growing company. He had an appointment for an interview for 10:30 that same day, and after a great interview he was told that he would be receiving an offer letter within the day. He did and he was schedule to start working on thursday. On friday we met a lender and we got pre-approved for a mortgage and on saturday we found the house we would love to live in. We are going to try to write an offer today, but for what the realtor told me, they don´t have any other offers and she is sure we would be able to get a great deal (I already think the house is a deal all together).

So here I am a week later, praising God for His blessings, and for His trials and so looking forward to go furniture shopping and gathering decorating ideas.

God is so good! Even in the middle of the storm!

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,

from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the LORD,

which made heaven and earth.



Can you help me out please?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if you could help me with something. I have notice that when I write post it won´t show or give you the option of comments. I don´t know why and I haven´t done anything to change that option so I am not sure what the problem is.

Do you know what the problem is? Do you see the comment option on the post you read in my blog? Now watch it working on this one ................. I will look silly.

Well in case it happens what usually happens and you know how I could fix the problem, send me an email to pilarstark(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks so much!


Trials and changes

You know, I sure don´t like to go through difficult times.

It is hard, it hurts, it is confusing, it challenges my faith and if hard enough, even my beliefs. It makes me feel bad and get sick of myself when I fail.

But it also makes me spend more time on my knees, praying, seeking the Lord. It makes me realize once again that I can´t make it on my own, that I MUST learn to trust in Him. It teaches me about God, His love and His wisdom. It makes me see Him in everything, His hand orquestrating every situation to give me His will.

I don´t like trials, but I sure can see why I need them. God is molding me in His hands, making me the christian He wants me to be, for His honor, glory and for His use. That I may be the vessel He wants me to be.

Things are lighting up and I am excited. What is God doing in your life? What trials is He using to make you what He wants you to be?


How Deep the Father´s Love

Isa 53:5-6
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

May we all remember the price of our salvation. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
