Just something I have been thinking about....

  

  I hope if you are reading this you will bear with me as I share my thoughts.  Lately, I have seen where several people have posted on facebook, on their blogs and in person to me that a true christian should always be positive.  We should never vent, complain, or share anything that is not uplifting and encouraging.
     I have had a couple of people come close to challenging me if I am saved even.  Well, let me say this, first I am saved and I have peace with God so I honestly don't care if you think so, and second, I am not perfect.  I try to live for God but none are perfect save God.  I make mistakes, I have struggles and sometimes I make really bad mistakes.  I try harder to not make them and I feel convicted and go to God alot faster than I did before salvation but I still mess up.  Sometimes I vent, complain and cry.  I try not to alot and I try to praise God and live for Him more but even when I mess up I am still saved and still living for Him.
     I have talked to some of my friends about this who are really good Christians and some who are struggling Christians.  The majority of them say that my struggles show them that it is okay to not be perfect, the thing is we should try our best with God's help and hope.  One lady told me, that I encourage her cause it gives her hope to keep trying. I hope that I encourage more than I discourage.  I love the Lord, I pray for me, my family, my friends, my church family, my missionaries and more.  I read my bible and I try to grow.  Now am I perfect no, I have struggles, one of my biggest is my mouth.  I speak too fast and sometimes too often and sometimes I say stuff I wish I didn't.  Pray for me, please.  Someday I hope I with God's help will overcome, but until then I am going to keep on living for and serving God the best I can. 
     So, if you mess up, get up, ask God for forgiveness,pray, read your bible and try again.  Someday we will win these battles when Jesus comes back to get us. Until then, I will just keep on serving my Jesus and prayerfully win more battles than I lose.  Praying, you do too.
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


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. 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
