Day 2 & 3

This is the view from my mom & Jim's apartment. (365-29) On Day 2, Jim, JOhn and I went over to my cousin Danny's office so I could be adjusted and Gina gave me a full body massage! I had never had a massage before and I believe it is possible that I am addicted! They are like heroine. Try it once and you're hooked. It was phenomenal!

We hung out with mom and Jim for the rest of the afternoon at their house and then Julie and I took all the kids to the mall to run a bit. We spent the night at John's house so the kids could go play in the snow this morning. There is no snow down here in Boise, but John is up in the mountains and as you can see in the picture there is snow there!

This morning the kids all bundle up and went out in the snow to play for about an hour and then we headed back down to Boise. Jourdyn was able to ride Pepper, my brothers horse. (365-30) She rode him bareback. Nadine and Rowan went sledding down the snowbanks in front of John's house.

Day 1 (365-28)

Day 1 - We spent the day today playing Scrabble and Ten Thousand with Grandpa and playing with toys. It has been fun. After Andrew and Nathan got home from school, we headed out to Nampa to Northwest Nazarene so I could pick up a confirmation letter of my enrollment in the MDiv program.

Rob and I have decided that we will go forward with attempting to enter the Air Force Chaplain Candidacy program. So here's the deal with that at this point: for the next two years I will go back to school 8 credits hours per semester, graduating with my MDiv in Spiritual Formation. I will be a Chaplain Candidate during that time. Air Force pays for half of my education. Over those two years I will do 12 weeks of Air Force training over the summers. (Not all at once)
So I had to go to my school and get a letter for the Air Force records. Like I said before this is a long process to get in. We are just at the beginning of that process.

Jim came home yesterday. He looks great. I think he likes the fact that we are all here to visit him. He was given new meds and goes back to the doctors soon. They want to put a heart pump in, but they have to see a certain doctor in Salt Lake for that. For now, he is on hold. He went with us for the ride today. After going to my school, we stopped by my cousins, Dan and Gina's house to say hi and then we hit the neighborhood FIVE GUYS!!!! (I believe this is my new favorite restaurant!) This pic of the day is my stepdad, Jim and my nephew, Brodie. Doesn't Jim look good? I am definitely praising God that He has sustained him for this visit!!!!

I have lots of pics but no way to upload them. Still haven't seen my brother yet....tomorrow!!!!!

We have arrived

Well, after a very long drive we have arrived in Boise! We rolled in about 1 am mountain time. It was a good drive. We didn't hit any weather. In fact there was very little snow the whole way. I was surprised about that.

We left on Tuesday at noon eastern time drove all the way through Iowa and stopped to sleep at a Budget Inn in Adair, Iowa. Then we were back on the road and drove the rest. The kids traveled well. Rowan had some issues with wanting to go to the bathroom all the time and then once there not wanting to go. It all worked though.

So now we are just spending our weekend visiting! I'll have a picture for you before the end of the day!

Road Trip (365-25)

It's been a busy day around the McQueary house. Really it's not fair to say around because this is the first I've sat down in my house all day! My morning began with Refresh, a mother's group at church and then lunch with Melissa and Izzie! (my pic of the day - Rowan and Izzie gave a dollar to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) Home to get Nadine off the bus and then off to Girl Scouts followed by a late evening phone interview with the Church of the Nazarene Regional Chaplain Coordinator.
It has been a busy day! And if that wasn't enough, mom called this morning and my stepdad, Jim had another heart attack last night.
My sister, Julie and I have decided to take our kids out to Idaho to see him this weekend. So tomorrow we will load up my van and take a two day car ride. We will head home on Sunday and return home sometimes next Tuesday probably. Brodie hasn't seen Grandpa since 2007 I believe, and my kids haven't seen him since 2008, so we decided it was important for them to see him now, since his heart isn't doing good.
I will try to post my pics of the day via my cell phone! So the quality will definitely not be that good! Pray for our safe travels. Winter isn't the best time to be doing this! But I'm sure in the end it will be worth it.

Family Fun Night (365-24)

Our church had a Family Fun Night tonight! We rented an entire bowling alley! We bowled, ate pizza, drank pop and had euchre tourneys and prizes!

We invited our friends, Amy and Jason, to come along! It was a blast!

Before we went I was actually able to get my kids to pose for a few pictures! So these are pics of the day!

I would say we had a couple hundred people there tonight! Rowan was more concerned with the car racing video games and the crane game. So much so, that when I told him he couldn't have money, he went into my purse and took some!

He was not all about the consequence of that one! Especially in public! But they had fun bowling with Vinny and Dom, Amy and Jason's kids!

Jourdyn hung out with her friends a couple of lanes away and daddy played in the Euchre tourneys. He didn't win.

Our Pastor is on vacation this weekend, so we had a guest speaker for the day. He's a friend of mine, Don Schiewer. He is on staff at New Harvest Christian church up the road from us and he is founder of Food For Thought. You might remember one of my posts about FFT from why back when, if not read it!
Anyways, Don is a phenomenal speaker. I think what I like best about him is that he is comfortable enough to be himself. In fact, as I watch him, I believe that our teaching styles will resemble each other after I get over the newness of this all. Anyways, he spoke on Genesis 18, on how Abraham and really the Israelites had a tradition of hospitality that the church today has lost. Abraham while praying and meeting with God saw visitors coming and said "God hold that thought. I need to welcome and serve these sojourners." Not in those words, but that's what he did. Abraham didn't just give them a morsel, he gave them a feast. Don's point today was that the Church today promises a feast and barely gives a morsel. We want to be missional, but that means go complete a task, not what's mine is yours and what's yours is yours. He really challenged us to see really live our lives like everything we have is not ours but God's and because of that treat people as equals because they are. They, like us, are sojourners in a foreign land.
Another thing he pointed out and I had not really thought of until today is about Sodom. We all think we know what Sodom's sins were. I'm sure you have a whole list thought out at the simple mention of the city. But Ezekiel says in verse 16:49 "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy." WOW! Is that not a snapshot of our culture today?

Big Boy (365-23)

Rowan and Nadine spent the day with Aunt Julie, while I went to ISOH/Impact to help sort and package all their donations. My friends, Traci, Dawn, Nichole, Katie and Stacie went with me. Nichole and I tackled the Medical supplies and sorted and packaged over 2000 items!!! The rest stayed out a sorted/packaged food, personal items, baby items, cleaning supplies, etc. We spent about 4 hours today working for Haiti Relief. It was a great day!

Jourdyn spent the day with friends, so Rob and I took Rowan and Nadine to Big Boy's. They had free kids meal tickets from something. My pic of the day is them with Big Boy!

Open and Shut Doors

This is the door to St. James Episcopal Church in downtown New Jersey. It's beautiful. And it represents my thoughts of the day. (And I unfortunately did not take the picture)

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear , do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy!"
~ Dale Carnegie
For several years now, I've been waiting around. Yes, being obedient. Yes, working on my education. Yes, waiting and serving. I've been waiting for doors to open. Doors to open in my community, in my church. Asking God why things aren't happening like I think they should or even how established policies say they should, thinking that I was following His plan.

While I know that I am, indeed, following His plan for my life - I am called to be a minister to people - I've been waiting for the doors that I think should open to open. And while I've been waiting, watching for these opening doors, it's like I've completely blinded myself to the doors that have closed.

I believe its my optimism that has caused me to do this. I am always looking for the best in things and I cling to those things. But in clinging to the hope for doors to open, I haven't seen the reality of everytime a door doesn't open, that's a door shutting. I've been saying to myself, "Well that door didn't open, there's got to be a secret hatch or something, right?" So I stay beating on a door that right now has been shut and doesn't have signs of opening anytime soon. Like Mr. Carnagie said above, this inaction on my part has caused fear and doubt. I even rationalized my ignoring of closed doors as patience, thinking that I had some spiritual mountain that I needed to climb before the doors would open, thinking that I must just not be what I need to be. I became doubtful and fearful of the person that I know I am called to be and allowed that fear to paralyze me waiting for the open door, blinded to the ones shutting.

Lord, help me to see the shut doors. Help to realize and discern that for every time a door opens another shuts, and likewise everytime a door doesn't open, help me to know and admit that that's a shut door! And Father, help me accept that. Help me to not sit and wait for something to happen, but to instead move forward, knowing that You go with me, because You live in me. Let my prayer become God bless my steps and in each one may I be a vessel for Your glory.

Options (365-21)

Rowan and I loaded the car today, with help from some friends, with only part of the items we've collected for Haiti. We took all the items, including three tents that will become homes to three separate families Haiti to ISOH/Impact in Waterville. My friend, Rod, rode along to help me unload it all once we arrived!
It was amazing to see their warehouse packed to the brim with donated items. They need help sorting. We are continuing to collect, but are going to move towards assembling teams to go help pack everything for shipping. As much stuff that was there, it was sad to think that it doesn't even begin to meet the needs of Haiti right now.
Rowan had fun! He loved being able to help carry stuff to the car and he got McD's for being a good helper!
Rob and I have been discussing our options, my options with finding a job. We have been discussing the possibility of my becoming an Air Force Reserve Chaplain. There are several reasons. It's a process that is going to take exploring and from what we are finding many approvals. My denomination has to endorse me for candidacy. The AF has to approve me for that position. I would enter as an Officer and I have to return to school for four more semesters and get my MDiv. At the end, I would be a weekend warrior, which won't interfere with my getting a pastorate somewhere.
No decisions have been made, we are investigating it as an option. But it's exciting to see another possibility I hadn't thought of.

Mommy/Daughter Night (365-19)

This evening Jourdyn and I went to a local hotel for a Mary Kay make-over session! We got to sample products and put on faces. We even had before and after pictures! It was pretty neat.

We've made the parental decision in our home that our girls will not wear make up until 15 and then only neutral/natural looking tones. So this was a special night for Jourdyn, being only 12 1/2. Although she didn't care much for the layers of concealer, foundation, blush, shadows, etc. So I don't think we'll have to least not this year! Some how I don't think we will be so lucky with Nadine!

My pic of the day is my make-up card! These colors were a little to natural for me. I felt like I didn't have any make up on at all, but they were pretty. I didn't get any good pics of myself. But I do have a really good picture of Jourdyn that a proud mama can't help but show off!

I also received a letter from Northwest Nazarene University today stating that I have successfully completed all the coursework for my Masters of Religion-Pastoral Ministry! I was excited to see that!

Playing Catch up (365-18)

I believe that everyone is over the sickness that graced our home the past few days! YEAH! However, that meant that today was a day of playing catch-up! My washer & dryer were running none stop!

They were running a lot during the sickness too! But that was to wash things that had been puked on, or breathed on!

Thankfully, I believe we are caught up or at least as caught up as I'll be with five of us around the house!

I took the kids today to see The Princess and The Frog. It was very cute! It is based in New Orleans and a friend had warned me about the voodoo in it, so I was a little cautious. After watching it, I would have to say that it is no worse than the Wizard of Oz, or any of the Disney magic in the other princess movies. It's just very culture-oriented to New Orleans. Anyways, the kids liked it!

I do have one concern though, Rowan has developed an affinity for the bad guys in TV shows and movies. I'm not sure that he completely understands. It's like he is more concerned with the neat tricks they have. So I've spent the day telling him about how we aren't supposed to like the bad guys.

This morning the kids and I went and sorted donated items for Haiti. We've collected quite a bit! As I watched the news this evening, my heart continues to break. Seven days have passed since the quake hit, seven days people have been trapped, buried or crushed, but by the grace of God from this point forward will they find anyone alive.
But by the grace of God has anyone survived at all. My heart cries out for the children left with no mommies, for the parents having to bury their young in mass graves, for those in mass graves who will never be identified. My prayer is that God's glory would shine through this tragedy. He promises that He can work in all things and I believe He is already working in this devastation.
The news today reported that limbs are just being amputated off of survivors because of the damage and the lack of medical care needed to fight off infection. A Haitian soldier reportedly said "All of Haiti is broken."
Psalm 33 came to mind to me tonight as I pray for the nation of Haiti:

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
to deliver them from death
and keep them alive in famine.
We wait in hope for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD,
even as we put our hope in you.
Psalm 33:19-22

Date Night (365-16)

We had a scheduled date night with our friends Chuck & Char yesterday. I was going to cancel because Rowan followed Nadine in her sickness. But then I decided that I needed to get out of a house that reeked of puke and lysol for at least a couple of hours, before I became the next victim of the sickness. So we went. Chuck and Char showed up with Eva & Jeremy, Darcy and Jessica. Those are the folks in my pic of the day (365-16) We went to Five Guys for dinner and then headed to The Omni to see Neon Black play. While there we ran into our other friend, Jason. And Char and Chuck ran into someone they new.

It was a fun night! One of the best parts is that way back in November 2008 we went with Chuck, Char, Amy and Jason to see Neon Black at the Distillery. I blogged about Amy and making fun of this guy that was dressed straight out of the movie Grease. Well, guess when he was there last night!!!!! My knee has been killing me so I didn't get to dance around him. But I did get pictures of him and it did make for a great laugh since he was dressed the same exact way!!!!

On a sad note, I broke my camera!!! Nothing serious! The on and off switch busted off!!! So I have to take it to the camera shop and see about getting fixed! :(

I will regrettably not have a picture of the day for today (365-17). Nadine was sick, then Rowan, now Jourdyn and Rob isn't feeling too well himself. So not much was done today beside me going to church and later some mild grocery shopping (mostly to get more Lysol!)

Nadine is selling Girl Scout Cookies! She's working really hard and has already broken through her goal of 60 boxes! Now she's going for highest troop sales! Do you need cookies?

Nadine's Sick (365-15)

Starting at about 10 pm last night, Nadine began throwing up. I spent the entire night in the bathroom or over a bucket with her, doing laundry and cleaning up puke. She did pretty well today only vomitting once this afternoon. But she hasn't ate anything either! We are keeping liquids in her and hoping she feels better soon.

Snowman Mayheim (365-14)

Jourdyn and I headed out to the dentist today and when we returned we found Rob and the kids in the front yard building snowmen. Rob was a good daddy and had been taking pictures in the middle of all the fun. But I couldn't help but taking some pics myself. So one is my Mommytography picture of the day (365-14) and then I have also posted a Smilebox slideshow!

I spent the morning with Evalee. After we took care of the errands we had to run, we decided to do lunch at Five Guys, Burgers & Fries. Neither of us had ever been before, but I've heard from many people that live on that side of town that it is really good! After experiencing it today, I would say it's phenomenal. The best burgers I've had in a long time! If I had had my camera, I'm sure I would have taken the pic of the day there! I highly recommend it!

Blood Drive (365-13)

I spent the day today hosting Hope Community Church's 3rd Red Cross Blood Drive. So my pic of the day is my hubby's blood! We collected 21 pints of blood today! YEAH!!!

I've been heartbroken over the disaster in Haiti. When I heard about it, my heart immediately cried out and I have this overwhelming urge to help. So I contacted ISOH/Impact today. They are a local relief organization to Haiti and they are coordinating disaster relief at this time. Hope is going to be a collection site for them. And during our blood drive today, donations were already coming in!

Not only are we partnering with ISOH/Impact, but the churches in the our area are partnering with us to collect for this enormous need.

"God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea"
Psalm 46:1-2

I also met some extraordinary people tonight, Rick and Karaleen Grimes. They have just moved to Holland, Ohio to plant a Nazarene Church. As I was talking to them, it occurred to me that to my knowledge Uncle Scott's house is still sitting vacant on Erie St. I hooked this couple up with all the info on the house, the new owner and her address. It would be a perfect house for them, tons of living space and a whole first floor church! I'm excited to see how God works in that situation.

Tate's Tail (365-12)

My picture of the day: my dogs tail! Today Tate had about 4 inches taken off his tail. On Friday we realized that the hair at the tip of his tail was missing. By Sunday the skin was all black. By yesterday, it began to pull away, ripping and bleeding. So we took him to the vet this morning. The tip of his tail had died and his body was rejecting it. They had to amputate part of his tail today. And this is what he looked like coming home!

The doctor said that this happens when their tails are pinched in a car door or something like that. Tater doesn't go away with us as much as he should, so a car door is out of the question. The best we can figure is his tail getting caught in the slider to the backyard. However, Tate is a big baby he would have yelped and screamed. So really we don't know what happened to him.

But he is home, and while his tail a shorter, my pocket book's a little lighter! Although our vet is very reasonable, and Tate's worth it!

Ok - this is's the wreath on my front door....awaiting its departure!!!

The Unknown

I don't remember if I've mentioned it or not, but I'm done with school. I now have my Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry from Northwest Nazarene University and I finished with a 3.81 GPA. It's a little weird beginning a New Year with no classes to take. I'm adjusting for now though.

I have been applying for jobs here in my community and really thinking about what the next step is in this journey. Through my education, I had a lot of discussions with God about what He was up to and how He thought it possible that I could be a pastor. And now that I'm at the end, I can finallly see how that can be. I can't believe it! But I know that I can do all things through Christ...that in fact, being a pastor isn't about me and my abilities, but about Him and His giftings. So okay, God, I get it!

There are still a lot of unknowns. It feels nearly pointless to look for a job that isn't ministry-oriented, that doesn't fulfill the calling He has placed on my life. I am though. I am looking for something, and without any luck. My prayers have become "God, open the doors that you want opened. Lead me to the position that you already have for me." But more importantly, "give me the mind and spirit to be able to see those doors and walk through them." I need the mind to think outside of the box that I've been thinking in.

So I take these unknowns and I wait. Anxiously wait! Anticipating all that God has in store for our family and being faithful to serve and love where I am. Living a life worthy of the calling.

"In light of all this, here's what I want you to do...get out there and walk—better yet, run!—on the road God called you to travel. I don't want any of you sitting around on your hands. I don't want anyone strolling off, down some path that goes nowhere. And mark that you do this with humility and discipline—not in fits and starts, but steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love"
~ Ephesians 4:1-3

I wasn't sure which picture to use. So you get two!!!!

"Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

"I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety."

Psalm 4:8

LifeLine Community Dinner - January

In keeping with my New Years Resolution to build relationships, Rob and I were invited to the LifeLine Community Dinner this month and we went! "LifeLine is people in spiritually formed community, mobilized by team leadership to do network ministry with regional reach, to accomplish community transformation."

It is hosted in the North's home in the Old West End. It was an amazing night. We ate dinner with many people we didn't even know, but we all came with the intent to meet new people and build community. It made for a great evening of discovery. We met Vic, his 9 yr. daughter Hannah, found Hannah's Socks. The concept of the dinner is about getting people together who have a heart for community and for changing their world in whatever way they can: Food For Thought and 1matters were just a couple of other organizations that were represented, We fellowshipped with pastors from other churches and other denominations, some we knew, some we didn't. We shared our meal with homeless people and wealthy people. Our great friends Chuck and Charlene were there. And some other friends that we've met along the journey. All of us there for one common goal: to get to know one another! It was such a blessing to be there.

And guess what? They do it every month!!!! YEAH!!!!

"All the believers were together...They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

Acts 2:44-47

For the birds....

We have a big backyard and only one tree in it. Since we've moved in I have contemplated having the tree cut down. It creates a lot of mess in the fall with the leaves and all. And in the summer it seems to always through shade in the places I want it least!
Slowly we have added bird-feeders and the kids homemade birdhouses. Just this fall we added a squirrel feeder; after watching our squirrels hang like trapeze artists from the suets.
Now I couldn't imagine looking out my kitchen window and seeing any other than that old tree and all of the wonderful wildlife that graces it everyday. We have 6 bluejays, a mating pair of cardinals, mating downy woodpeckers, mating pair of Northern "Yellow-shafted" flickers, purple martins, swallows, sparrows, finches, and even 3 squirrels who frequent our feeders. We have seen red-tail hawks perched on our fence waiting to catch some prey. And today we had a small hawk of some type try to fly through our sliding doors. He hit the glass pretty hard, but was okay!
These are just a couple of pictures I took today of our wildlife in our tree!

The 365 Project

Well, my friend Heather is going to do this with her blog, so I've decided to be a copy-cat and do it too! :)

I am participating in the 2010 Mommytography 365 Project! For this year long project I will be posting an image a day, to get me out shooting, using my camera and learning new things with it daily. Anyone interested in photography can join, no need to be a Mommytographer. We have teens to adults, male and female, as well as people from all over the world. Come join the fun!

I will try my hardest to post one picture from everyday this year! I'm starting out missing the first 6 days. So I will do the first 6 days of next year!

These picture posts will be labeled 365-7, 365-8, etc. And I may have to put several pics in one post if I don't have time. But I will carry my camera with me and take random pictures. I will try to explain them when I can.

So here is 365-7 (01-07-2010).

Rowan riding his plastic cow. Yesterday, we were at church and he was helping Mr. Bo clean out the storage area and this is what they found! A big plastic cow! Rowan loves the cow! So much so he came home and put on his "Cow-boy" outfit and rode the cow!

365-8 (01-08-2010)

Yesterday, began our first real snow of the winter season. We were hoping for canceled school today but that was not the case. We did have a 2-hour delay though. This is what it looks like outside!

Happy New Year!!!!

“In 2009, I resolve to build and strengthen relationships that my gracious God has so blessed me with. I resolve to fortify the friendships that God has already placed in my life by spending more time with the people I treasure. I am determined to take relationships beyond their current borders, to reach out to those in my sphere of influence and create opportunities to get to know everyone even better.”

That was my 2009 resolution. As I look back over the year, I believe that I have finally made it through a year with the ability to say that I was successful in my resolution. I got to know people better. I invited people over for dinner more often. I stopped to listen, many times putting aside a schedule in order to be present in someone else’s life. I made new friends, and I strengthened old relationships.

It is no mistake that this resolution was kept. Because unlike, vowing to make it to the gym or to try that new diet, or spend less or maybe even spend more…building relationships was what we were created to do! God created us to be in relationship with Him and He created us to be together! He created us to do life together! Not to be alone! My 2009 resolution was successful because it was God’s plan from the beginning, not because of anything I did or didn’t do, but because God was there with me. And I make that same resolution this year!


Our New Years celebration was good! The kids and I picked up Julie and went to Cedar Creek to see Sanctus Real in concert! Chuck and Char (and kids) met us there, however, God had a different plan. We didn't get to sit with them.
Someone else sat down right next to me, before I could turn to say these seats are taken. It was definitely a God-thing. I can't explain it all on here, but know that God was at the concert before it ever began. I had the opportunity to reconnect with someone I hadn't talked to in months. Which that reconnection will in itself be a little weird, but God sat this person down next to me for a reason. I'm excited to see what that is! It was a good 5-10 minutes before this person realized it was me that they had sat next to. And I hadn't realized it until they tapped me on the shoulder!
So I missed sitting with Chuck & Char, but I know that God was all over our seating arrangements! He is good!
After the concert, I took Julie home and came home to watch the ball drop with Rob and the kids. Nadine and Rowan missed it! But Jourdyn and us stayed up and watched it drop. Jourdyn was a little amazed by it. She asked lots of questions about the whole event! Overall it was a great night!
On another note, I was so proud of my BG Falcons the other day! They fought the good fight! And unfortunately were vandalized by those Idahoans out there on the smurf turf! But it was a fantastic game.
Because of my hoopin' and hollarin' Nadine asked me if I was wanted to be a cheerleader when I grow up. I told her yes. She looked at me for a second and said, "Mommy, you are grown up!" and then just laughed! But she was having a ball with me! Jourdyn came out of her room and asked me to be quiet, she could hear me over her music!!!
Likewise, today's game offered up the same behavior on my part! However, the Buckeyes won!!!! Go Bucks!!!! Again a great game!
