Tribute to my mom

Ana Bellido

With Mother’s Day approaching, I thought I would pay tribute to my mom, as I am missing her more than ever. I guess its true when they say that only time can heal the pain you feel from losing someone so close to you. I have also discovered that you never stop missing that person and wishing they were with you to share life experiences with. I still dream about her and think about her often. The pain has been replaced with a sense of longing for that relationship. I am so glad that I have a wonderful Savior that I can share a deep and wonderful relationship with as well as have an amazing daughter , sister, brother, father, niece, and extended family and friends that fulfill my life. I know I am blessed. Nevertheless, I long for my mother. I have wonderful memories to look back on and she is so much a part of who I am. I am blessed to have had her in my life and so proud to have the wonderful heritage she gave me. I love you Mom!!!

Happy Saint Patricks Day!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
~Irish Blessing

Eyes and other Random things.

I had an eye exam today, it was the first one I've had since my Lasik surgery three years ago. Come to find out, my eyes are really healthy and my vision is great! Praise God!! Not a very exciting post I'm afraid, but I felt like "blogging" so there it is. The eyes have it.

Wait, I'm not done, I feel the need to continue blogging... what other things to blog about? Hmm.. I went shopping at the mall for a bit and found the most perfect little birthday gift for Lulu, will have to tell you about it later..

Then, I went to small group tonight and was very blessed to spend some time with wonderful people that I love. We talked about the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32 and the forgiving, unconditional love of a father who waited in anticipation for the return of his wayward son. I really liked a quote we read from Max Lucado "You may be willing to stop being God's child. But God is not willing to stop being your Father." My prayer tonight (and has been for many years)is that my beloved brother David will return to trusting in the Lord once again.

Ok, that's it for today! :)

Weekend in Vancouver

Lindsay and I spent this weekend with the Riddles and as always came home feeling so very blessed to have such wonderful friends! All the wonderfulness including: sleeping in the Cupcakes room (pink - my fave!), shopping in town, murder mysteries, cute kids, eating, fellowshipping, worshipping, blog improving (Thanks Kelly!! Love ya!), talking, laughing, cooking, Farkle, Vera, and just being together was great! God is good and we are blessed.

A New Year's Poem

Instead of making a New Year's resolution
Consider committing to a biblical solution
Your promises are easily broken
Empty words, though earnestly spoken
But God's Word transforms the soul
By His Holy Spirit alone with Him
He will change you from within
