I'm praying for you is not a joke or to be taken lightly!

     I'm praying for you is not a joke or to be taken lightly.  Prayer is important and prayer changes things.  I have seen the hand of God upon my family and I have seen the friends who lifted us up to God.  
     On my facebook page on Mondays I have Marriage Monday, Tuesdays are to pray for all the military and their families, Wednesdays are to pray for your friends cause you never know the tears behind the smiles, Fridays are reminders to pray for all the ones you love.  These are not just something to post but a real desire to get people to pray.  
     Pray for your marriage before it is in trouble, pray for the soldiers before they get hurt or come home with issues, pray for the families while they are gone and for them to be prepared when they come home cause sometimes they are not the same. Pray for your friends even if you don't know a reason, pray cause they are your friends, pray for your family before there is a major need, you never know when life can and will change.  
     If you say you will pray, pray, pray right then, pray at a stoplight, pray when waiting in a long line, pray when you can't sleep, pray instead of watching another stupid mindless tv show or you play on the computer and especially pray when someone is laid on your heart.
     Also don't forget to pray for yourself , pray for God's forgiveness for your sins, his will for your life, protection over your life, pray you are at peace with God so that you can effectively pray for others.
     Most of all just pray, praying is simply talking to God and then slowing down and listening for what that still small voice says back. 
     Am I perfect in my prayer life?  No but I count it an honor to pray for people and when people pray for me and the ones I love.  C an I pray for you in any way?  I know I need your prayers that I will be the person God wants me to be and that I will live each day in his forgiveness and grace.
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…
