WELCOME!!! Today is the first day of our challenge, or month of prayer for our children. Today is the day that we want to concentrate on Salvation for our children....................... One verse that is on our calendar is: 2 Timothy 2:10 - New International Version (NIV) "Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory." The next verse is: Isaiah 45:8 - New International Version (NIV)- “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it; I, the Lord, have created it." .......... As our children grow up, they will endure many things at school, with friends, sports, camps, family....whatever it is that they go thru in life, wouldn't it be nice to know that they have Jesus as their salvation? I know that's what I'd like for my girls! Let salvation spring up.....I just LOVE that part of the second verse...spring up to me sounds like a fountain that springs up and overflows and showers and refreshes us. That's what I'd love for my girls...for them to have Jesus as their salvation, have Him over-flowing and showering them with His love, goodness, faithfulness, protection, forgiveness, mercy, and grace. Keep in mind what you want for your children while you are praying for their salvation today. God bless! Lisa

officially starts tomorrow!!! Have you started yet, if so that's okay, just continue on.....but as for the rest of us...today is THE day!! What do you want for your children? Do you want them to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior?? Do you want them living the life that God has for them? Today is the day, do not put this off any longer......I'm not!! Instead of just praying Lord watch over us and keep us safe..........get real, get personal, get detailed......yes, God already knows what we want, BUT He wants to hear us tell Him and spend time with Him! He wants us to pray for the children that He has given to us to watch over. Sooooooo, stay tuned tomorrow for the first day of the "Praying for your Children" challenge! Granted, it probably should NOT be called a "challenge", but, hey, if it helps us to focus on prayer and our children for the month......I'm all for it!!

Wow, what a weekend..........busy, busy, busy........but very very very good!! Spent some MUCH needed time with some family that I haven't been able to see in quite a looooooong time, and what an AWESOME and AMAZING time we had........kind of short lived, but wonderful nonetheless!! Then we helped hubby's mom with her house and sorting through things, throwing out things, and all that fun stuff that comes with selling a house, lol!! Then we got to stay at a hotel too........I didn't want to drive home, it was late and I felt we'd get a better nights rest if we stayed up in that area, and then we could come back to mom in law's house the following day and help some more.........boy, we got lots accomplished!! Still lots more, but we're getting there!! I am also working on our own house of clearing and sorting and finding things to sell or donate.......fun times let me tell ya, fun times, lolol!! Well, it's already tomorrow, lol, so I better get in bed for the night, morning comes early! Sleep well and peace to you all! Lisa

While browsing through Pinterest the past couple of days, I have been finding a ton of ideas, crafts, and recipes! Normally I don't actually do anything, I just pin them all to my boards and there they sit and grow little dust bunnies on them, lol!! Well, I decided it's finally time to start taking action! Today I found a Crazy or Wacky Cake recipe that looked too good to be true, soooooo, since I had the ingredients, I tried it! And wouldn't ya know, it turned out pretty yummy!! Here is the link for Crazy Cake! Yesterday I found the 31 days of praying for your children......that is something we all can do at any time, but, I'd like to have you all join me officially for a 31 day challenge of praying for our children, right here on scrapadoodler's happenings! Click on the picture to the left and it will take you to more details on the challenge! I hope you'll join me! In today's world, at least in my opinion, our children need all that prayer for strength and protection!!

Lately I have been wondering how my children will turn out as they get older. I see the attitude and actions of my almost ten year old, and she's acting more and more like a teenager already! My almost five year old is stomping her feet and screeching "Nooooooo!!" as loud as she can when I ask her to put away her toys. My patience sure get tested day to day with having children, lol!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my children with every beat of my heart......they are a JOY and a precious gift from the Lord, but........sometimes they just seem to get on that last nerve, lol!! What have I been doing wrong, why don't they listen??!! Hahahahaha.......well, well, well........the lightbulb finally came on the other night.... Have I been praying for my children?? I mean, REALLY PRAYING??!! Sure, I say prayers with them each and every night...BUT, what about MY prayers FOR THEIR little lives? Just like my grandma (who raised me) prayed for me....I want to do the same thing for my children......pray for their salvation, future mates, schooling, careers, friends, and all the problems that may come up in their lives...and everything else as well. I found this calendar on Pinterest the other day and thought it'd be a neat idea to start this.....officially I will start on May 31, but unofficially I need to do this each and everyday!! I would LOVE to get as many people on board with this to pray our children right into God's precious will for their lives and keep them there. Who's with me?!?! Here is the calendar chart that I found! Here is a calendar link where you can actually print out each day to make an actual little calendar to keep by your bed or wherever you pray, as a little reminder! OR, here is the actual picture on Pinterest if you'd rather print that out! Either way or find your own calendar on Pinterest or somewhere......whatever you decide to do, just do it! Pray for your children!! I believe in the power of prayer and I need to trust my children to the Lord!! I hope to see some of you join me in this! Thanks for stopping by, and remember, keep your children covered in prayer!! God bless! Lisa
