If you know us at all you know that my husband is obsessed with fishing, and that the prior part of the sentence is the biggest understatement of the world!!! But it seems to have been passed down to him from his Uncle Greg and Granddaddy and now he is passing it on to our boys. Jameson loves to go fishing even if its just up the street at Bro. Bobby Long's pond which is where him and James went Monday night. Jameson got out there with his little Buzz Lightyear fishing pole and on the first cast the above picture is the fish he caught. Although he declares that it is a shark, not a fish, and that he seen two more while he was there! So those Longs better watch out the next time they take that paddle boat for a spin! Apparently there are some Jaws in there! :)

So as you know from my prior post I have been having some fun times lately with my back. Thanks to some fabulous muscle relaxers, some physical therapy, and a husband who has took over the lifting the babies duties (Yes.. James have been toting the kids to and fro and even watched one at a time at church over the weekend all by himself! - Go James!!!, he has also received a new found respect for me - Go me! LOL!) I made it until Sunday night! I pushed myself to go back to church Sunday night. And by pushing, I mean literally! It was storming, I was hurting and it took all I had to get up off that couch and get the boys ready again to go back. But I am soo thankful that I did. Jared Lewis came to church and received the Holy Ghost! It was so wonderful. I just cried when he went to the altar. I was in a lot of pain, but I was not going to miss him getting the Holy Ghost. I went up there and prayed for him, and of course he wasn't a quick one! :) But I got to see him speak in tongues and the look on his face when he realized he was speaking in tongues was so wonderful! I was hurting so bad, and Jared was so happy and hugging everyone, and Bro. Rodney Ragon just come right through the crowd and laid hands on me and I had instant relief from that pain. I was so thankful to have some relief. Then after they sung the "If this ain't the Holy Ghost" song, Bro. Matt got the oil and anointed me. I just have such a thankful heart. I was still having some pains through all of this but nothing like it was and when I got home I noticed that I could bend a little better, and I could walk a little faster, and before I went to bed I had chased Jameson all around the house playing, got their pajamas on them, lifted them up, put Joey in his crib and then got in the bed and was able to rest. I am SOOOO thankful! I woke up this morning and I am having no problem. I'm bending, twisting, lifting, walking, going up and down the stairs with ease! I had a doctor's appointment this morning and I went and he is completely baffled. He says that discs do not just go back into place and he doesn't understand my relief of pain, but he's going to do some more scans and wants me to come back in Wednesday because he thinks after I try to work a couple full days in a row that I'll be in pain again. I'm actually looking forward to seeing his face when I go back on Wednesday and those disc are all back in place! I'm guessing it's going to be better than the one he made when I was able to reach down to my toes today! So thank you Lord for healing me once again in my life, and thank you Lord for giving the Holy Ghost again at Rocky Branch and especially to one of my dearest childhood friends. I'm so thankful how he worked his life out and made a way for him. I'm looking for many more this summer! Blessed be the name of the Lord!!!!

Well, not that I didn't have enough to do with revival just a few weeks away, a now 3 year old and a 10 month old, a full time job, and James (that should speak for itself!) lets add going to the chiropractor once a day for the next month or more to that list! Yes, apparently when I fell down the stairs a couple weeks ago here at work I have a disc in my lower back that is now slipped and possibly fractured.. more results to come from my x-rays via the doctor closer examining tomorrow and it is inflamed and now pressing down on my sciatic nerve! Fun fun fun! Of course, other than being sore for a couple days after falling I didn't think anything about it. But when I picked Joey up on Sunday and couldn't hold him because my leg was going out from under me and haven't hardly been able to move without the help of James muscle relaxers (oops, shouldn't have said that!) it has been a fun week thus far. Let me tell you!!!!! So, I get to go back to the fabulous Dr. Foote tomorrow and let him tell me what all he can do for me on top of the treatments as long as that little disc is not fractured. So any prayers that the disc will not be fractured that you can send up for me would be oh so greatly appreciated! And to Marty - yes, you are the only one it will let me comment on! I'm going to try the Mozilla thing when I get a chance, but for right now I'm still loving reading all your blogs! My comments will be coming in full force real soon hopefully!

I'm so sorry to all my blogger friends. I keep trying to comment on your posts and comment back on my comments on my post but for some reason my computer will not let me do it! So, if you get 20 comments from me I'm very sorry, but also if you get none, I'm sorry! But I'm still reading and loving every one's blogs!!!!!

It's took me a while to get this done since the week has been so crazy, but five years ago this past Wednesday, June 15, things changed quite dramatically in my life! I sat through a revival church service at Huntsville Holiness Church and could not tell you who talked, what they talked, what they sung or anything about it other than I knew that if I did get the Holy Ghost that night that I hope that I would just die because I could not keep on living the way that I had. They gave an alter call and I went down there and started praying like I always had, but I was determined that no matter what happened I was not getting up out of that alter without the Holy Ghost and if the Lord wouldn't give it to me and I did get up without it it would be because somebody made me get up. I prayed for almost two hours and had so many encouraging words and was really feeling the power but just couldn't get a hold of it. I went back to praying and I heard Bro. Shannon Barron who was down there praying for me say to somebody "She's about to make it!" And when I heard it I just got so excited and actually started laughing because i knew I was about to make it. Probably a split second later I started speaking in tongues! I just laid there laughing because I knew I had and I was so happy, but I wanted to make sure every one else knew I had and I knew if he let me speak in tongues once he would let me again. I started praising the Lord again and I immediately started speaking in tongues again. I didn't wait any longer. I popped right up and grabbed hold of the first person I seen which was Allison Stilwell and she had just gotten the Holy Ghost a couple nights before! I have been one happy girl since and am so thankful for all the ways that the Lord has blessed my life although this one incident was the best blessing ever. I'm so thankful for my salvation and that it's mine.

(Jameson in his Spiderman Outfit I Made Him)
(My Sleeping 3 Year Old)
(The Coolest Batman Cake/Cupcakes Eva!)
Well yesterday was Jameson's 3rd birthday and Granna's (she would kill me) birthday!!!! I can't believe that he is already three! It's very depressing! But of course.. the party must go on, and although we did not do a party this year we still took our little man out to eat and had one awesome Batman birthday cake! (Thank you Albertville Home Bakery.. it was umm ummm good!) And Granna and Pops left for the Smokies last Thursday night to celebrate her birthday so they missed all the yummy cake and cupcakes because sadly it is now gone! Jameson had a wonderful time and every time someone would call to tell him Happy Birthday, he would proceed to tell them Happy Birthday back... because that's what you do, right? But it was really cute. So we're still watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time, still riding the new tri-cycle, and I must say he is quite the pro now, and apparently turning 3 does not magically give you an internal fabulous bedtime because tonight at 10:30 he is still running back and forth from one side of my bed to the other because he is the "Blue Robin"! But this is just a short post to say my little Jameson monster is 3! We made it past the terrible twos... oh wait.. no, Joey will be there in about a year and we can start all over again! I'm thinking I should start praying now!

Okay, so I know I haven't posted for a few weeks and things have been crazy, but now our evenings are mostly being spent enjoying the fabulous $15 pool that I got at Wal-Mart! It's wonderful!!!! The boys love it! And it is helping with Joey's so fair fair fair complexion! However, Jameson is liking it a little too much. Last night he was going to go outside with James while James got something out of the car. Me and Joey were inside picking up toys (well, I was inside picking up toys while Joey would grin at me and pull them right back out!) and James comes to the door and says, Hey Jenn, can you come here a sec... so I go to the door thinking, "what now?" Well as I walk out onto the porch I see Jameson's shorts.......... then I look further down the steps of the porch and see Jameson's shirt....... and then in the yard there is underwear... I look in the pool and there is a Jameson in all his glory!!!! He grins at me and says... "I want to go swimming Momma!!!!!!" Of course... I cannot respond because my laughter has taken over! When I composed myself I said, "Jameson, are you naked?" And he responded that... "No, my flip flops!" So, as long as there are still flip flops on.. while in the pool it doesn't matter! So I went inside to get his swimming trunks and Joey a little swimmers and we spent the rest of the evening out by the pool because really what else are you going to do is 100 degree weather?
