The women God wants me to be

I am on a mission to become a better wife, and mother, Yes I have my faults, and I fail most of the time. I complain at my husband when he asks me to grab him a cup of water, or when he asks me to rub his feet. I learning that I complain A LOT, and I know it hurts my husband. I know that is the devil, because I am giver, and when it comes down to my family I will do whatever it takes to keep them happy.
Recently I met my husbands "Uncles" Wife, and let me tell you, She is that Titus 2 and proverbs 31 wife. Her husband cannot work, and is on disability and she has to work full time to help support her family. She ALWAYS is made up and smells good, her house is spotless clean and her husband is well taken care of, and honestly I want to be just like her LOL. I know that not ever women is the same, but if I could be like her, I would. She is a pastors wife, but she isn't snobby and she doesn't think she is better than everyone.
She is my example of how I want to be.
So my prayer is that God works on me to become the wife and mom he wants me to be.

Happy Birthday-My best friend.

My best friend is my twin sister Tiffany. We were born 23 years ago, in Arizona. She is 1 whole minute older than me.
Tiffany, You dont know how much you mean to me. Yes we are living different lives right now, But I alway know I can come to you when I need to talk.
You never judge me, You laugh at me when I say something stupid, but most of all you love me no matter what.
You always seem to know what to say, and its always at the right time.

Sometimes I wish we could fast forward back to our childhood just for one day. Those were the good day when we would just listen to music and talk about boys.
One thing I love the most about you is your ditziness, It never gets old.
Sister, I want the best for you.
I pray that you will seek GODs face whole heartedly.
We may fuss and fight, and we may say things to each other that we don't mean.
But I know that your love for me is unconditional and mine for you is as well.
Did you ever think that 23 years later that we would have our own families?
God blessed you with this Beautiful little girl
And I was blessed with my boys.

Tiff, Happy 23rd birthday. I have been blessed with a best friend that I have known since the womb. How lucky are we?!?! I love you!!

Our Love Story

1/2/2007 Was the day my life changed for the better!

Patrick and I do not have a traditional "How we met" Story, We didn't have a long courtship. For us, things were quick and to the point.
We "met" November of 2006, on Myspace. Yep you read it right, we met on MYSPACE, of all places.
I was the one who actually sent him a friends request on there, ONLY because he had a picture of him and his son as his profile picture and I want to see more of the little guy.
Few days had passed and he finally accepted my request, and a long with it he left me a message saying "Hey baby." LOL he was trying to get fresh already. I wrote him back and said "Baby? My name is Tierra, how are you?"
And then from there we sent a few messages back and forth and then that was it for a few weeks.
Well on Christmas Eve I was really thinking about him, So I got on MS and he was online. I wrote him a message, he wrote me back saying "Hey I was just thinking of you, why dont you call me" He gave me his number... I started FREAKING out. It took me a good 10 minutes before I called him. WhenI called him we talked FOR HOURS, about everything, we talked about our goals, and what we wanted out of life, we talked about God, marriage and children.
We decided to go on a date to see a movie the a couple after Christmas. We decided to see ""Black Christmas"
So. the next day I got dressed and ready for our date, I was early *like always* Finally he came up the escalator , my heart skipped a beat, He was so handsome, and he smelled SO good... I was in love already, We hugged, he bought our tickets. As we were walking to our theater he told me that he is very jumpy when it comes to scary movies! LOL I told him to not worry, I would hold his hand if need be. The movie started and he did that awkward yawn and then stretch his arm over my shoulder thing. Cheesy I know!
Well, after the movie he walked me to my car which was in the parking garage and I was just gonna drive him to his car, since he parked at a parking meter.
The movie ended at 8 i believe, and we stayed and talked in the garage until about 11. It was amazing. I told him to call me as soon as hr got home, he lived in a smaller town about 15-20 mins away from me.
The next day he came to my apartment, from then on we were inseparable which was friday the . I had to go back to school. We were talking on the phone and I told said to him, we should go get married. and he said "Tierra, don't play with me, I would marry you today if I could.
"I said "really?" and he said "Yes I would"
Then I said "Well lets go to the courthouse after school."
And we did. Friday we went to file our paper work and got our license, and on monday we were married.
So after a few short days I became Mrs.B and here we are almost 5 years later still Very much in love.

Moving on With a guarded heart

I am at a crossroads, kinda like fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
My husband and I had an amazing couple as our friends, we actually became a family. We were there when her daughter was born when they couldn't make rent or even buy groceries, we were there. There were a lot of promises made and tears shed with this couple, I literally gave them which I NEVER do. The husband became the brother my husband never had. That is how close we all were.
Well, back in September before my step sons birthday we had a little falling out, and some horrible things were said, and my feelings were hurt, so so were Patricks. So we left the church we were at and started going to the church we go to now.
Three months had passed,and we moved on. Patrick started getting serious about being in the ministry, And I slowly started to find out where my place was in the church beside being a pastors wife. Well, My husband gets a call from M(The husband) And they meet up, and have a great talk, I was still on the fence, Something just did not feel right to me, and two people before have told me that they do not have a good feeling about this couple, and of course we brush it off like its nothing.
We mend the relationship as much as we can but my guard was up.
About a month ago we all star talking about moving, but no one really had the finances to, So Patrick and I prayed about where we were suppose to be, If it was Arizona we asked God to open the doors, but if it wasnt where we were suppose to be by all means father PLEASE close the doors, and close them tight. And he Def. did we knew that we were suppose to move, But M&A were still persistent. So about 2 weeks ago they decided to move, Keep in mind we ALL were suppose to go as a family, and I felt sad and upset that they decided to leave without us all, but I was more nervous and anxious! Both my husband and I felt that they weren't suppose to leave just yet! We had a talk with them and we know that this would with make or break our friendship. And it broke it, over something so small. There were other thing about this couple that just rubbed us the wrong way. I am ver old school when it comes to the church, my husband IS the king of this castle and what he says goes, I also believe that GOD will speak to my husband concerning how our home is ran and GOD will confirm it through me. But the wife was very vocal, it seemed to be to much you know?. There also was a time where my husband and I almost split up, I wont completely blame it on them but they def, had a major role in it. The wife would tell me one thing and the husband would tell patrick another. All together this was not a good thing for us. Before we had out talk with this couple I prayed and I asked God, "If they aren't suppose to be in our lives by all means father please remove them from our lives, and do it for good"
And the next day he did it.
But I know from here on out we will not let any couple or anyone in general speak into our lives, and I sure wont let anyone get as close to me as they did. I am really hurt by everything.
Here is one of my favorite scriptures.

1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 1:1-6

I refuse.....

Okay, people may or may not like what I have to say.. BUT.. I refuse to call myself an "infertile". Is there nothing to hard for God?I Feel like a lot of people are putting limits on what God can do for us! I refuse to speak negativity over my body... Because I know sooner rather than later I will be blessed with my miracle... My turn is right around the corner, my faith and my trust is in the lord!
Here are some scriptures that really speak to me...
"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart."-Psalm 37:4
‎"And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive"-Matthew 21:22
"Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that's asketh, recievethAnd that he seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be open"- Matthew 7:7-8

Long time

Well, Its been about 5 months since my last post. For about a month or so I have been contemplating whether I want to write on this blog or make a new one. Well here I am, I know I don't have a big group of people who follow me on here, But I didn't want to leave the people who do follow me hanging. So much has gone on in my life, Its just crazy how your life can change so quickly! Time for the bullets

No, Im not pregnant... I wish I was, but I am fine where I am at now.
  • We are moving!!! Last year we went to Arizona twice, and fell in love. So for the past year we have been praying and praying about moving there, and God has finally allowed it. SO, hopefully by june I will be living in the desert.
  • Im gonna be an auntie again! LOL I dont know if i said this in the past, but my twin sister is expecting a little girl... Kendall Jenae who is due May 22.
  • My husband is going to be a licensed minister soon! YAY Im so excited. Its so exciting to see us finally walking into our calling.

My life is getting busier but I am loving it. Im going to try to start blogging at least once a week. It feels so good to be back!
God Bless!!
