Silly Sisters!
 Momma letting her horns out!  Beautiful! This is my mom and 2 of her sisters, Naomi and Mary.  Aunt Mary has been battling cancer for the past several years and this recent round of chemo caused her hair to start falling out so she decided to go ahead and shave it off rather than have bald spots.  These are a few of the wigs that she has acquired from friends and family.  I guess no matter what age you are when you get together with your sisters it's all fun and games (at least it was Saturday anyway).
It doesn't get better than this!
I want to introduce everyone to our grandson, Noah Avery Hammond! All I can say is wow!  He is the most amazing creature.  He was born this morning, September 18, 2010 at 1:16 A.M.  He weighed 6 pounds 15 ounces and is 19 1/2 inches long.  I must say to me he looks way smaller than this.  Bethany did an absolutely amazing job and I am so proud of her.  He came into the world letting us know he was really not happy with the whole being born situation.
But then he thought he'd have a look around.
Then he found her, awe yes that's my mommy and this is where he was when I found my way home a bit ago except they where all snoozing.  More to share later after some much needed rest.  It has been a very long day!
Did you know that healing is very painful? I always knew that physical healing was painful, yes it always hurts for a while before a wound heals.  What I never knew it was that spiritual and emotional healing is also very painful.  I have come to find that this is very painful in so many ways.  I have learned that severing relationships that hinder my life is painful but necessary.  I have learned that God is still there when I try but still end up landing on my face.  I have learned that God uses his people in ways that even blow my mind.  I mean there are people that I don't see on a daily basis and have no idea what's going on him my life who all of a sudden know the exact words that need to be spoken at the right time.
Did you know that Satan is watching you? He does, he sits and watches our lives and then BOOM just like that he sees a vulnerable spot and he jumps on it. Sometimes we don't even realized that this has happened.  I speak about this from personal e…
I found something I didn't know I had lost! (Warning, very long post)
I sit here with tears flowing as I share with you my heart. 

Honestly I don't know where to begin or that I'm even comfortable with this.  So I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and have decided to be open about some things with all of you.  You are my friends and have never showed me anything but love so I really think by the end of this post you will rejoice with me.
You see over the last 9 months or so life has been anything but stable.  I lost myself somewhere along the way.  Sometimes life throws changes at you that your just not prepared for and you must decide how to cope with them.  I retreated somewhere deep inside of myself, um not a good place to be.  I became very depressed and then life threw more at me. I became very anxious and then life threw even more at me and somewhere along the way I became someone I didn't know. 
I was lost and I honestly never realized it.  I just kept going t…
Our Little Girl!

Our daughter Bethany thought she needed to go and grow up and grow up she has.  It's so hard to believe that this little girl that I fell in love with over 15 years ago(she was 5 when her daddy and I married) is now becoming a mommy.
She will be blessing us with our first grandson in 4 weeks or so.  Her shower for Noah was this weekend.  My cousin Shelby came in and did belly pictures for her and I just had to share these. 

Noah Avery Hammond!!!!

The proud Mommy and Daddy to be.....

Our Little Girl! (She is absolutely glowing)

Noah we cannot wait to meet you and we already love you!
Have you ever been in a place in you life where something tells you that you have messed things up so horribly bad that not even God cares to fix it?  That my dear friends is where my life has been lately.  But I do want to say that God is so faithful and full of grace.  Satan is a liar, he is the one that put those feeling there.  I life has been on a slippary slope lately and try as I might I couldn't save it but I came heart to heart with the one who could last night.  I so don't understand us humans.  Why do we try to fix things that we know are bigger than we are?  Human nature I guess.  I want to thank all my prayer warrior friends out there, I appreciate your prayers more than you will ever know.  Please continue to be in prayer for us as we are now on an uphill climb but this road is a very bumpy one.  I leave you with this, hold on to Jesus because in this life he is all that we have. 
Love to you all, Beverly
Incredibly Dark!
I can officially state that I have been walking through one of the darkest time of my life.  I do understand it could be worse although I think that if it were that would be enough for me to just throw in the towel.  I really am not ready to comment on what I have been going through just please remember me/us in ur prayers.
Seasonal Changes!
To all my family and friends I find myself coming back to my blog when I am unsure of things.  Don't get me wrong God is the first place I turn. He is and has always been my ROCK.  I have alway found what used to be journaling and is now blogging theraputic and even if noone out there ever reads this at least I in someway may feel better.
We all know that there are changes in life.  Some we love, some are unexpected and some we just flat out hate.  I remember growing up all I ever wanted to be was a wife and mommy.  I wanted to go to nursing school but I really wanted to be a mommy.  I couldn't wait for that experience.  I hated high school, I just never really felt like I fitted in anywhere.  I didn't play sports, wasn't a cheerleader and wasn't a brain so I never felt like there was a place for me.  My plans throughout high school were to graduate as quickly as possible and go to nursing school.  One day all of that changed, I'm sure it was mo…
