Sunday Night Family Time!

     When I was a kid, we got together as a family all the time.  I don't just meant the people in my house but I mean all my family.  We got together to share, laugh, eat, the kids played and the adults talked.  It was wonderful.  But times change, people grew older, moved away and those times were over.  You hardly ever hear much about such things anymore.  People have to much to do, too many places to go and are scattered so far apart.
 
     I am blessed to have one son still at home and one who is married but just lives across the street from me.  We share lots of times together but one of my favorites is Sunday night get togethers.  I am not sure when or how it started but every Sunday night we eat together as a family.  We alternate who does main dish and who does sides.  But the food is not the best part though it is always good.  The best part is laughing, talking and sharing.  The best part is watching and being with my grands.  They know who I am and how much I love them. 
     Get togethers may be a little old fashioned and from a time gone by but in my family they are the best time of my week.  If you haven't tried it you should, maybe not every week will work but sure don't let time pass you by before you try.

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!

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…
