Happy Memorial Day and as you enjoy your family, think of all the families not able to celebrate together so that you and yours can.

Life is short, God is good and Hug your family!

This week in our town we had an explosion at an oil field and 3 young men were killed.  They leave behind fiances, wives, kids, family and friends.  It was a freak, unexpected accident but 3 lives were lost and many were changed.
     We were talking at church last night about this.  So many people after tragedies turn to God and to family.  However it lasts a little while and then it goes away again until the next tragedy.  That is so sad to me.  Do we need to wait til a tragedy to love our kids, spouses and friends?  Do we only need God in bad times?
     God is good all the time but sometimes I wonder if we would have so many tragedies if we treated Him better.  Now I am not saying these young men did anything wrong or their families.  I mean us, the world. 
     My prayer is that we will turn to God now, not just in the bad times,but in the good too.  I could not make it without Him.  If you don't know Him, talk to me, talk to a preacher, talk to a friend, talk to God.  …

Encouraging Other Women

This is a repost from April 2010 from my old blog but is so true and I thought worth reposting.  I hope it will make you stop and think......
Encouraging Other Women I have been thinking alot about encouraging others.  I have been through so much in life that I am not sure I could have made it without my friends.  My friends prayed with me and for me.  Sometimes it was a note, a hug, a touch, a smile, "how are you REALLY", one friend sat with me all night one night when Moma was really sick and one sweet friend held my hand and we made a circle as my Moma left my arms and went into Jesus’.  None of those things cost much and most were free.  So then why do we not do more to encourage others? 
Reason 1–"I don’t have time"—really well I see you on facebook playing games, you are out to eat, you are at the movies and more.  Nothing is wrong with those things but are they more important than a friend?  I am forever stuck waiting in one line or another.  …
And these are my blessings.....Charity-Anne Jenee' (Nene), Jonathan Raymond Jr (JJ), and  Faithe-Makenzie Jazzlyn ( ZZ)!

They will be joined by Jeremiah Elan Tyler (Jet) on July 19, 2012 so be sure I will be back to post his pictures too.  :)
God bless, Pat

Ladies of the Bible!

As I said in an earlier post I am doing a Proverbs 31 bible study this summer with a wonderful group of ladies online.  It started today and I am so excited already.
One of Stephens assignments this week for school is to choose a lady of the bible, write where she is found in the bible, how she was used by God, her failures or successes, what we can learn from her and why he chose her. I started thinking how much do I really know about the ladies of the bible myself so I decided to start a study of my own.  I will loosely be using a book called "Women of the Bible" by Ann Spangler & Jean E.. Syswerda.  I am going to choose one lady at a time and study on her.  As I complete one I will move on to another.  
     I hope this will get me to dig deeper into my bible and also learn more about the ladies that God thought we should know about.  Through these two studies, my ultimate goal is to help me learn to be more the lady God created me to be.
If you were to choose a…

Proverbs 31 Study

Proverbs 31 Bible Study
     I am joining with a group of wonderful ladies and we will be doing a bible study this summer on Proverbs 31 lady.  It is through Good Morning Girls.  I am so excited to do this study.  I am hoping to gain consistency in my bible reading and study; also I am hoping to learn to be a better wife and mother and just a better Christian lady.       This study starts this Monday and will run through the middle of August. I am looking forward to spending part of my summer with other Christian ladies and learning to be more who God wants me to be.      What, if anything, are you studying? God bless, Pat

Supermoon and Heaven

The other night everyone was talking about the "supermoon".  I wasn't quite sure what a supermoon was.  My son, T, informed me it was supposed to be bigger and brighter.  I mentioned it to my hubby but it was a cloudy night and I thought not much more about it.
    Then at almost 11 pm and yes we were still up, my hubby called me outside to see this moon.  It did seem a little brighter and bigger but who knows.  Anyway my hubby said I should take a picture, but all I had to use was my phone.  I decided to try anyway and on the 2nd try I got the picture above.  It kind of looks like a star or something. 
     As I was looking at the photo and the moon, I started thinking, and I know this might sound crazy, but I wondered what my Moma would say if she could see the moon from the other side, in heaven.  I know that might sound silly but one I miss Moma and I know she is in heaven.  I am not sure what heaven will be exactly but I am glad I know the one who made that m…
