HAPPY 1/1/11
     Welcome to 2011, do you make resolutions?  Set goals?  Choose a verse for the year or a word?  I have friends that are doing all of the above and some are doing a mixture.  I guess that is where I fall, a mixture.  
      My verse for 2011 is:
     I chose this verse because if I only speak, think and say things that are of the Lord then the rest of my life and goals will fall into place.  Now, I know I will still face trials and temptations but I will face them with the strength of the Lord on my side.
     I wrote out my goals for 2011 and they can pretty much be summed up with one word-MORE!  I want to first, spend more time with God in prayer, reading and thoughts and what He wants from me and my life this year.
I want to spend more time with my family-talking, listening and playing games, enjoying the time God allows us to have together.
I also want to spend more time walking, eating healthier and drinking more water.  This is not to lose weight, thought I need to but rather to take better care of the body God has given me and so I can feel better and have the energy to serve Him and spend time with the ones I love.
To sum it all up, I just want to be more...more for me, more for my family and more for God.  What about you, what do you think or hope for 2011?

God bless,
Pat

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.  
God bless,
Pat


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…
