Why are people......

     

     Why are people....never happy?  No matter what they have, where they are or what they are experiencing, it is never quite right. 
     What brought this first to mind was the weather....first it is Winter and people hate the cold, they can't wait til spring but then it comes and maybe it is too rainy and still kind of cool, they can't wait til summer, but wait, it is so hot and the bills too high, they can't wait til fall, but then comes fall and wow, it sure is cool, it will be winter before you know it and I will be freezing, and I wish it were summer.  See the problem here, they are never happy.
     I see it with people and their kids too....when they can walk, when they can talk, when they will obey, when they can dress theirself, when they go to school, when they can drive, when they graduate and then it is when are they coming home, I miss them, I wish they were little.
     I know part of it is human nature and life in general but sometimes I just get so tired of people complaining.  My challenge to you if any one is reading this, is this, take a few minutes and think of a few blessings in your life, no complaining, no when, if, or someday but just count the blessings of your life right now.
      Enjoy the now or God may decide you don't need any future!
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…
