The buyer decides if an item is worth the price.
No matter how short I think I fall in comparison to others, no matter how little value others see in me, Jesus felt I was worth the price He had to pay.
Attacking our self-worth is one of Satan's most subtle yet sinister tactics. It is essential for me to believe that the Son of God died not only for the sins of the world but that He died for my sins. If the adversary can lead me to believe otherwise, my doubt may keep me from seeking the Savior's atoning grace and returning to His presence.
If you doubt your value, go to the Buyer to get the only product review that matters. "We can pray with confidence that we can feel the Savior's love for us.
He loved us....enough to pay the price of all our sins!
Having faith in that love allows the Redeemer to change our lives and carry His purchase home.

I have had a thyroid problem for many years but back in June I decided to see a specialist as I was having some real periods of strange symptoms. I really just thought that my doseage of medication just needed to be altered.....possibly increased or decreased!
This Dr. is a diabetic/thyroid specialist who is about 45 minutes away from me. I was a bit discouraged at first because it took me three months to get into her but it was worth the wait. I just really needed some answers to these strange occasional symptoms I was having. I had actully decided to log them in a little "thyroid diary" that I started to keep. I am guessing it happens about twice a year and yes...I would say that stress seems to help this little episode of symptoms along. It lasts about two weeks and I appear to have some confusion (typing can be a bit rough and discouraging), as I can't seem to hit the right keys, heart palpitations, irritabilty, can't sleep, can't remember things, I'm super tired and I feel totally "scattered! It's like a "fog of confusion" and that is so............not me.
I started to notice this about a year ago and decided that I needed some real answers and not the ones from my general practioner!
She did several tests when I went in and one was to check to see if I have Hashimoto's Disease. Well, of course I do! Hashimoto's disease is a disorder that affects your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck, below your Adam's apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body's activities.
It is an autoimmune disease and it tends to run in families! YOUR OWN IMMUNE SYSTEM ATTACKS YOUR THYROID AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM CREATES ANTIBODIES THAT DAMAGE YOUR THYROID. It can be caused by a virus or it could simply be a genetic flaw.
The thing I enjoyed most about my visit it that she said these little "episodes" that I am having are normal for the disease! HEY.....thats all I ever really wanted to know. Now I can deal with it!
So........you would think that I should be boosting my immune system with supplements right? WRONG.......After all, an autoimmune disease represents an over-response of the immune system to its own organs and cells, so why would you want to give the immune system even more ammunition?
The right thing to do is to "balance" the immune system! I have learned so much the past few months.

On Saturday we spent the day at the "Lied Discovery Children’s Museum".
Oh my gosh! It was so much fun and there is so much to do here!
Wynter loved the cute kids store put on by Smith's. She got to shop for groceries and then ring them up on the register.
Really lady! I am sure I gave you the correct change....so get your hand out of my register.
Tee Hee Hee.......
She spent the most time flying the airplane and they even had luggage that she hauled around on the plane. I sure wish real planes had this much seat room!
Little River loved the infant play area!
Our little diva♥ She loved the dress up and stage area. We actually had to go back because she was so sad and wanted to do it one more time!
Look out "Broadway"
Making huge bubbles.....this was very cool!
