Hard Times In This Election

Well, First all I want to say I'm so sorry that I have fell off the blogging world. I'm still here just counting down the days until the election is OVER. All of you know that my mother is running to keep her job as Clerk of Superior Court. I have never seen a race that has been so nasty. I have not slept good in about a week. I don't understand why people who do not know my mother, how could they say such hurtful things. On top of that, say that she was working another job on county time. Please, my mother would never do something like that. Melica Kendrick is a good woman. God has put this job in her heart for some reason. I know that He knows she can do a great job. Please don't believe the negative things in the newspaper.

Please pray for mom and our family for the next week. Mom said this go around she has felt like she has been under a personal attack. I feel the same way, it just hurts me that people are treating my mother like this. Nov. 4th is a huge day for mom and all us. I just keep telling myself GOD IS IN CONTROL!!!!

Thanks to everyone who voted for my mom and will vote for her. On behalf of her, I know she thanks you too.

Peace Out,

You Just Lost One!!!

Hey girls,

I have been on this darn computer trying to embed a video I wanted you to watch. Since I can't get it on my computer here is the site Lets just say this girl knows what she is talking about. I just wish I could be this fired up for Christ. I wish I could express my true feelings to Him. I need to stop living for myself and live for Christ. It is so hard in this world with all the crap we face. Satan has all this stuff we are tempted with like music (Yes I admit it I like rap music) TV (I feel as if I have to watch all the shows I'M HOOKED, not just on one show but them all) Internet (I spend I know 3 hours on this thing a day). But yet stupid me can't find the time to open my Bible and spend time with the one person who put me on this earth. How Selfish am I? I guess what I'm saying is this video made me think. I need to let Satan know he just lost one. Please check this site out and let me know what you think. Please tell people to check my blog, I think this is a huge message that we all need to hear.

I am so sorry for being such a selfish person. How dare me think I can live this life on my own. Please forgive for not knowing your word like I should. God please help me start my day with you. I know I have to die daily to myself. God please help with this addiction I have with Tv. I know I have problem. I want to be able to live my life for you. Everything I do I want it to be in your name. God mold my marriage the way you want it not the way I want it. God please allow me to take the next step with you in your word. Thank you for being my father.

Tolilet Paper, Trash bags, and Light bulbs

Hello to all,

I just wanted to write and let everyone know how the Hammontrees are doing. Well we do not have any kids to start school ,but we are praying for the parents that do have kids going to school. Church is going well and I am so excited about the young adult class. Please pray God will send us young adult so we can grow. We need to reach out and grab the young adults that are hungry for God and His word.

Well the title of this blog is so funny to me. It is honor of my sweet husband Kevin. This morning as he was leaving for work he told me this. "Honey, we need tolilet paper, trash bags, & light bulbs." The great wife that I am told him I would make sure we had the items by the time he got home. He told me I might want to go soon because we are on our last roll of tolilet paper. In other words "Honey there is not much left on the roll and I will not be here to get you a roll when you run out. "

So I set out on my journey this morning. Yes Ladies I got up early this morning!!! I was out the door at 8:30AM. I had to drop off my work at my office and then headed to walmart. Yes Walmart!!! I have a hard time shopping there but that is a different blog for a different day. I must admit I was only in there for 30 minutes. Record breaking time. I was so impressed because there were no lines, its wasn't crowded, and I was by myself. (No Kevin to rush me)

Did you know that 80 trash bags cost $7.18 - Is that high?
The price of tolilet paper give me a break!
Light bulbs 1.88 for 4 (maybe I should start paying more and they will last longer)

Oh Well that is my take on tolilet paper, trash bags, and light bulbs.

Hope yall all have a great day!!!

In Memory of Baby Sam

Baby Sam went to be with our Lord on July 03,2008. I wish you all could have met him. He was a very jolly little guy. Through out his of life he spend 5 months out of 28 months in the hospital. Words cannot express how the family is feeling. I am even having a hard time writing these words. I just wanted to thank everyone for praying for this little boy who you didn't even know.

He has his PERFECT HEART now and he is running on the streets of gold.

Please keep praying for the family. I talked to my aunt who is Sam's grandmother and she is having a hard time with all of this. She said she has her good times and her bad times. She is a strong woman and I know God will give her peace. It is really going to be hard on us Sunday. We are celebrating Sam' s little life and what a huge impact he had on all of us.

This is a picture of my aunt Judy holding her grandson.

Again thank you for all your prayers!! Thanks for standing in the gap for Sam.

Housewives 101

I survived VBS!!!!!!

Yes, I am still among the living. Hope everyone had a great time at VBS!! To all the parents I loved working with your children. Thank you for letting me be apart of their lives.

Well, I am really writing tonight so I can get motivated to get some tasks completed this week.
I would like to complete all laundry, clean bathroom, clean kitchen, clean my closet. Just get organized!!! I really feel I can't get anything done and I have no excuses. No children, only one class, and nothing but TIME. I know this may sound dumb but does anyone just have quick tips how to keep the house clean. I just can't motivate myself. WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME!!!!

Girls make me a Housewife!!!

I know I use to think you guys were crazy to be housewives but you guys make it look so easy.
I don't know if I can do it. I love staying home because I can sleep til 10:00am but that's not good either. I need a system!! I wish I could say I could look at it like a job but there NO money.
Oh!! Well I can't even believe I'm posting this about my house cleaning skills. If this is what it takes, I need the butt kicking anyway.

Maybe I need a chore chart like Maddie and Ella???

I know I need to stop whining and buck up and get the job done.

You guys are the best, thank you for setting a great example for me.

His Flower

I can't even begin to explain what a wonderful night Kevin & I had at his grandparent's house.
We really were going to stay home tonight and do nothing. Well Kevin ask me if I want to go see his grandparents. We had a nice ride in the country. We get to Kevin's grandparent' house and met pawpaw in the driveway. We all took advanage of the nice cool night and spent time outside. (I am not one for outside for a long period of time) (To many bugs) While we were enjoying our icecream, Mama Jane wanted to go work in the garden.

Ok... Let me stop and tell a little about this woman. Okay she is shorter than me (but not Beth Pullium short) skinny and can run circles around me. The woman is ready for anything. She tried to give me some extra ice cream tubs she was saving. She has enough plasic bags to resale to Walmart and make some $$$. Okay I'll sum her up, She throws NOTHING away.

Okay back to the garden. So Pawpaw and I took some chairs by the garden and watched Kevin and Mama Jane work in the garden. They had everything in this garden such as: Tomatos, corn, okra, peppers, squash, radishes, and LOOSE LEAF LETTUCE. Who would have thought to grow their own lettuce. That was amazing to me, tomatos I understand but lettuce. Well as the night went on we talked, laughed, and cut-up.

It got to be about 8:30p.m. and Mama Jane wanted me to come watch a flower. Yes I said WATCH A FLOWER. She kept telling me the whole night isn't God great with all he can create. I agreed with her but really didn't get what she was saying until 9:00 tonight.

I have never seen anything like this in my life. Kevin and I were so amazed how God can do the things that he does. Mama Jane brought us over to this plant and told us to watch it and it will start to bloom any minute. (Mama Jane doesn't drink but I thought she started) God showed up tonight and the flowers bloomed while we watched. It was beautiful!!! These pale yellow blooms that had been hiding from the sun all day and came out to worship God tonight.

As I watched these flowers POP open, I thought wow is that what we look like as Christians. I fresh, new bloom ready to worship Him. It sadded me to think I am not like this everyday. I sleep until noon and throw myself pitty parties. I think I'm alone but I'm not God is right here wanting me to talk to Him. But then I thought wait, about 7:30 or 8:00p.m. Mama Jane started to pick off the old and wilted blooms off of the plant. So the new ones would have room to spread out. God does that for us!! We bloom then we have to die to ourselves for Him. Then He picks off the old and wilted blooms so we can have room to start all over and serve Him. Guys you should see these flowers it was like a choir singing a song. They all knew the song and sang their parts.

It is so neat to see what all God has created and how it works.
You all my husband and how funny he is or tries to be but he said "That is amazing and that is the only flower I know that can tell time." But Kevin knows God made those flowers to open at 9:00p.m.

So let Him pick off your old blooms. So you can show Him your new ones!!
Remember we are His FLOWERS!!!

I Love You Guys,

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."

Ephesians 4:24
24and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

So What are you wearing?

Ok!! I have to tell you what happen this morning to me. I called my husband and ask him a question about our dog (Hank). I thought he was sick but he is fine. I guess I made something out of nothing.

Kevin then preceeded to ask me a question. He ask me not to take it the wrong way. "Honey, do you want a bag of thongs." Yes!!! you read it right!! A BAG OF THONGS!!! For all the ladies that know me I am very private about this issue. After he ask me the question in the back of my mind I was thinking, What woman would bring her used underwear into work and try to get rid of them. I must say I was shocked that even Kevin would ask me. All that came out of my mouth was Excuse me? He said "Lacey I have a huge box of brand new thongs that came in today with my flooring load." I just died laughing!!! He was so serious!! Any way!! When your husband buys you underwear ask him where he got them.

So what are you wearing??

Well my nose is back to the grind stone

Hope everyone is enjoying the month of May. I was off from school for 13 days and now I'm back in school for the summer. YEAH!!! This week has been really tough we have been discussing the cardiac chapters. (the heart chapters) There is so much stuff I have to memorize it is unreal. But you know I guess I do need to know it. School is going great and I love my new teacher Mrs. D but I do miss my old teacher. Well I will keep everybody up to date with school and whats going on in nursing career.

Ok!! Now I need to Give God the Glory!!!

As you all know we have been praying for my brother Whit. Here lately I have seen a huge change in him. He is reading the book Wild at Heart and loving every page. He said it makes him want to go hike or ride his mountain bike. (That is answered prayer) He also spoke in front of the youth. I wasn't there that night but he told me what he said and I think it is a lesson for all of us. He said "It may not be what God is telling you to do but what God is telling you what not to do."
What a bold statement from a 21 year old. - anyway please keep praying for him, he is a good kid and could do wonders for God's kingdom. He as also signed up for Tres Dias and he will not stop talking about it. He said he gets this happy feeling when he thinks about it. Please pray that if this is God's will for him to go this next weekend.

Until next time............

Starting Fresh

Well, I got sucked into to all of this blogging stuff or maybe I was feeling out of the loop. Oh well who cares I'm a blogger now and that is all that matters. Please bear with me as I learn to do all of this cool stuff. Now to more exciting things. Has anyone seen the movie P.S I Love You. Girls grab your tissues and hold on to your husbands. As I was watching this movie by myself in my bed I showed all emotions. I was sad, mad, happy, discouraged, depressed,and lonely. I have never been so into a movie before in my life and I love Dirty Dancing but this surpassed it by far. I not going to tell you what happened in this movie I just encourage you to watch it. Let's just say I Love MY HUSBAND!!! This movie really puts a different angle on being married.

So go get the movie and go hug your husband.
