Ok everyone in only 3 days our votes are already up to 264. The highest number of votes I have seen this far is 1600. If everyone continues to vote daily and ask their friends and family to do the same there is not reason why we should not be able to get into the semi-finals (top 5%) in the next 14 days.

Also several people are getting a message that says they have already voted. This is because you are allowed one vote per IP address. Which means only one person can vote from the same location. My work friends are having to vote from home and my mom who lives in my house is having to vote from her phone. Sorry it is making things a little difficult.

God’s Perfect Will does not always feel so perfect at the times...

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope”

I have spent many years wondering why even though I have trusted God and remained faithful, I was not seeing his perfect will for me, manifest in my life.   After all I could not imagine how God’s perfect will for me would entail having a broken child,  a broken home, and a broken heart.  My life has felt like falling short of perfect was an understatement. 

The closer I drew near to the Lord the clearer “God’s perfect will” became.  I began to have revelations about where I had been and where I was called to go.  My first revelation was that my son might not be perfect in the worlds eyes, but in God’s eyes David is as perfect as they come.   I was not punished with a disabled child, yet blessed with an incredible son who God would use to share his power and grace with the world.   My broken home well that was a blessing in disguise because although at times I felt abandoned and alone I later realized that being alone saved me from more heart aches then it caused.  Oh and that broken heart well now my heart beats to God’s drum and not only has my broken heart been restored, it has also became part of my testimony and calling.  It was in my weakest moments that God taught me how to be compassionate, empathetic, and how to share his love with the broken hearted. 

So God Will doesn't always come in perfect packages, but when you continue to learn the lessons he requires of you and put your faith in him, he will give you perfect understanding and that is when you will fulfill GOD’S PERFECT WILL for your life!

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.

Please Vote, Share with friends and family, and in 24 hours vote again!!!

I need everyone's help once again but, I promise this time it is simple.  It is National Mobility Awareness Month and a dear friend of mine has nominated David and I for a chance to win a free accessible vehicle.  What does this me????  If we win I will no longer have to life 95lbs in and out of our car or have to disassemble and reassemble David's wheelchair every time we go anywhere.

So here is what I need...  I need all of my friends and family to vote and share this link and ask all of their friends and family to vote and share the link.  It is a national contest so we need all the votes we can get to win.  You can vote once every 24 hours for every IP address.  Please spread the word and help us.  =)

If I could blow out a candle and have one wish granted  it would be one more day with you.   I wish you were here so that we could celebrate you today but today I will cherish and remember all the amazing things about you that made you... YOU!   We will celebrate the life you had, the smiles you made, the laughs you gave, and the fact that you are waiting for us in a place far greater than any of us could ever  imagine!!!
