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.  Hug your kids, hug your loved ones.  You do truly never know if it will be the last time.  If you have problems with someone be the bigger person and make an effort to work it out.  Life is short, God is good and Hug your family.

My family and I love them all!

God bless,

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.

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…
