Living for the Lord and being married to my BEST friend has been the most rewarding in my life! I have been wonderfully blessed by raising 14+ children, enjoying 7 grandchildren, as well as 3 son-in-laws, and 1 daughter-in-law. We look forward to this growing family doing what the Lord has set in our hearts for His glory! Be blessed as you travel along with The Cunningham Journey!

About Aurora…

I thought I’d take the time to share with you who I am. My likes and dislikes, my favorite things, and whatnot. This way you could get to know me a lot better!

Anyways, My dislikes. I don’t like confusion. I don’t like people hurting others. I don’t like being around fake, phony, hypocritical people. I usually spot them in minutes. And…I avoid them at all costs. That’s pretty much my dislikes.

I hope you have enjoy journeying with our family blog as we have great things happening all the time in this family! God bless you!

Overtaken

John 14:1 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

The fact is, you can let your heart be troubled and let it overtake you. Meaning you have the power to allow things to come into your heart. You must take control of your heart. With so many heartaches going on in the world today with uncertainty of us being on the brink of WWIII with North Korea, social media wars between President Trump and the world, disasterous weather on the rise, earthquakes in various places, tsunamis, hurricanes causing widespread death and destruction, wars and rumours of wars, crime scenes on every corner, and such. We must fully put our trust in the Lord for as we see the days are evil. This is a time like never before where all of us need to continue to be in prayer for God’s direction. He loves you and has warned of these days coming, yet He also said, “Let not your heart be troubled.” He knew some would be troubled with fear. Yet He said to believe in Him, if you believe in God. We simply WON’T make it without Him! Reading the scriptures daily will help you to trust the Lord more. He brings so much comfort and you will have no need to worry. There are three things people struggle with in life, which is the enemy’s tactics against you: fear, doubt, and unbelief.

Take power over your heart, and believe in Jesus!

Many obstacles will come in her path yet at as a family like ours who sticks together, her journey with Journee will be a blessed one!

7 Degrees!

Yes…for the past couple of days it had been snowing!! One morning as I awakened, it was a whole 7 degrees and with the wind chill factor it felt like -6!!! So yeah, it’s been very cold to say the least. But, I have been waiting for this moment for a long time! My children have been having the best time of their lives having snowball fights, building snow castles, and just romping around in the snow! We also have a new member of the family named Sebastian! He’s a pup right now but will soon be gynormous! He’s a great pyrenees and they can get to be a whopping 160 lbs!! So far, he’s nearly doubled since we bought him. He too have been having a blast in the snow. In fact this is right up his alley because his breed is used to romping around after a good snow pulling children on sleds and whatnot. They are meant to protect their flocks and family from potential preditors like wolves and coyotes. But for now, he’s enjoying the snowball fights with the kids!
