God is always with us! When we are at our darkest hour, God's light is there!

I have been feeling kind of down lately. Hubby had been unemployed for several months. Finally he got a job and we felt it was truly a gift from God. He got up loving going to work. He was so happy! He got raises almost immediately and then a promotion. Life was good in the Love house.

Then, bam, with no warning he got laid off and we are back in the unemployed world. We are back to unemployment, depression, how do we survive, what do we do? I have been so down cause I don't know what to do?

Then this morning I was goofing off on facebook and I read this on author Beverly Lewis' page......"Dear friends, these verses touched my heart this morning, during my devotional time. Perhaps, they are meant to encourage some of you, as well. "Even in the darkness light shines on honest people. It shines on those who are kind and tender and godly...They aren't afraid when bad news comes. They stand firm because they trust in the Lord." ~ Psalm 112:4, 7 We're in this journey together! And how blessed we are to know that God is right there with us, though the triumphs and the challenges,jah?"

We may be in the darkness right now but God is still there and His light is still shining. We are honest, we trust and believe in God. We live for Him and He is there. He was there in the good times and He is there now. I don't understand why this happened but I do know we will be okay. We are not alone and God is bigger.

If you feel like you are alone and dealing with some battle out there in the darkness, look up, God is there and His light will shine on you if you let it.
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…
