Summer begins and so does the hunger!

    Today is the last official day of public school in my town, though most kids did not go after Friday.  My son is homeschooled and we go year round but still I dread the end of school year.  Not because of the kids being out but I know that with school ending so begins the hunger.
     So many of the kids get breakfast and lunch at school for free or reduced prices.  Some of them the food they get at school is pretty much all they get all day.  Now school is out and that is taken away.  I know we have a couple of programs in town that help feed them in the summer and some of their parents get food stamps.  But, some of the kids can't get to the programs and sometimes those food stamps get wasted and sold. Some people fall through the cracks too, they make too much to get help but not enough to pay for everything.  No matter what the case, the innocent kids pay the price.
     Either way, it makes me sad, all I am asking of you my readers is this, can we give a little to help one of these programs, or if you see a neighbor kid who looks hungry, maybe you could make an extra peanut butter sandwich and invite them to share, or at least can we pray?
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.  
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…
