Is anybody here-I am back and ashamed of what I have neglected or rather who!

     I was ashamed when I came to my blog and realized I have not been here in over a month.  Even worse I have not been reading some of the blogs I follow and I was amazed when I read some of the wonderful words that I had missed.
     I can blame it on life, facebook, or just how busy I am, but the real truth is this, I made a choice.  I made a choice to go where I went, read what I read and to skip what I skip.
     As bad as I feel for my blog and how I have neglected this blog, I through reading some other blogs that really touched my heart, I realized I have been neglecting something or rather someone far more important.  I have not spent the time in my bible reading or prayer life that I should.  I have been reading just enough to "get by" and praying is pretty much limited to prayer requests and bedtime.  I am ashamed that I am letting the computer take way more time and importance than family and God.
     If anyone is still here reading I ask that if you pray that you will pray that I get myself where I need to be in all areas of my life and most importantly that I put Jesus back at #1 where He should be in my life.
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…
