I miss my Daddy and Being a blessing......

     My Daddy went to heaven 28 years ago today. I was 21 and a Sr in college when he passed. I have lived longer without him than with him and that made me sad, til I read a friends blog and she was talking about her Daddy being in heaven and how he had seen Jesus' face and that gave me such peace and comfort. Love you Daddy and miss you but I know you and Moma are so happy together in heaven with Jesus and I will see you again someday. I am glad my friend shared her heart cause it helped comfort mine.

     A few months ago I was able to be a blessing to a friend.  I never told her about it or anyone for that matter.  I did not want any recognition, I just wanted to help her out.  She was so excited and it made me smile to just sit back and enjoy.  I had someone ask me, "Why don't you tell her it was you?"  I didn't care if she knew, it was just nice to see her happy.  
     Well, fastforward a couple of months and today I received a similar blessing from someone I just "met" and don't even know.  She just wanted to be a blessing to me.  She didn't make a big deal, just quietly sent me the blessing.  She asked for nothing in return.  
      I was telling my son about it and he said "Moma, remember you always have taught us that if you are a blessing to someone when you can and they need it, God will use someone to be a blessing to you when they can and when you need it."  My Moma also always taught me that when you do something for someone and you make sure that everyone knows then that praise is all you get but when you just quietly go on your way then God will reward you.  
     I don't always do what I should or what God asks but I try.  I think God is amazing and thank Him for letting me be a blessing and for the one I received.
     Forgive me for rambling today, but just sharing my heart and lessons learned.
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

All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
