"A man's heart plans his way but the Lord directs his steps." Proverbs 16:9

My next Proverbs 31 endeavor might be a little controversial :)

So, you all know the Proverbs 31 (Epilogue: The wife of noble character) chapter in the bible, but I am going to write it out anyway. Wives can never hear it too much!
PROVERBS 31:10-31
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
She bring him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still dark;
she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.
She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. She sets about her work vigorously, her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet. She makes covering for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments an sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Now on to my controversial new endeavor...

It started out in California...I prayed for a way to be able to spend quality time with Phil. We had went through a dry spell of YEARS and I NEEDED a way to get into his world. It wasn't working trying to force him into mine.

"Do you know what I do all day?

"It's your turn with the kids!"

"I just need a little help around here!"

"Can't you ever just take me out?"

Sound familiar? That was everyday conversation in my home for a time.


one night, I asked Phil if I could go to the stock car races with him. Sitting there on the stands, a light came on...or rather I think God konked me on the head!!

The words, "I would love to try this!" Came out before I even had a chance to think about what I was saying!!

A couple months later...I had my very own stock car!! Phil built it for me and that began a year of bonding for us. We spent countless hours together, and he ENJOYED it!! God provided me with a way into his world!!


Knowing how important it was to get into his world, I was looking for a new way...the closest race track here is 80 miles!!


We have had so much fun together, but, now I feel like I would like to take it even further and put into practice the:

"She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchant with sashes."

I do make clothing already, but I wanted a way to include ALL of my family and to do it still in my HUSBAND'S world.

Hunting isn't very profitable UNLESS you throw in apparel, clothing, accessories, unique skull painting etc!!

So, we are launching a new FAMILY business called:

Good Buck Gone Drag

It is a facebook page...website coming soon!

If you hit the "like" button after you click on the name up there, you can keep updated on all the new and excited things we are planning up.

The story behind the name is a whole other story...I will share tomorrow.

There in, lies the controversy :)

I have to give a special thank you to my brother, Jade, he believes in our family and gives us so much encouragement. He is the confidence behind this new adventure!

A thankyou to all other friends and family who have givin us so many ideas and continue to call, encourage and pray for us!! We love you all!!

I have been married 29 yrs. 4 girls later, and a dry spell ourselves, I too, prayed God would help me into my hubbies world. I love to scrapbook, he loves hot rods. I got into Nascar and Hot Rods with him, I attend all the car shows with him, we have built 4 hot rods for our girls as a family, we are attending our first Nascar race in March, and I get to scrapbook it ALL!

God does honor us, when we honor Him! Good read sister, I was blessed!
