Basic Training In the Home

Train up a child in the way he should go:and when he is old, he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6

Anyone who knows me knows I love this verse.  It reminds me that all we can do is teach our kids right and teach the way of the Lord, take them to church and train them to serve the Lord.  They may mess up as we all do but they will always have that training in their heart.

I was reading my devotion for this morning from a book called "Prayers & Promises for Women"  I thought I would share part of it it with ya'll.  It says...

"I am no educator,Father,and my knowledge of theology is far from great,but I long to teach my children about You through my daily life and example."

I have heard we teach alot by what we say but more by what we do.  Anyway this devotion got me to thinking, what am I teaching my children and grandchildren especially by what I do as well as say.  We are all training the children and others in our lives, but what are we teaching?  Are we training them for God or not?  Take a few moments today I beg you to join me in thinking about this and if you don't like the answer then this is the day to change. 

God bless,

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
