Don't wait for "Let me Know"!

   


     I have been talking to some of my friends and family about life and how busy it seems.  We are so busy living life that sometimes I wonder if we are living.  We get so busy sometimes with things that we lose people.
     Have you ever had a friend that you knew was going through something traumatic and you looked at them and said something like, "I am here for you", "Just let me know if I can do anything"? I have done it many times.  But, how many times do you actually do something, do anything?  This was brought to my attention recently and boy it made me think.
     Maybe if we just gave them a hug, sent a card, made the phone call.  Maybe we could just mow the grass we see needs mowing, pick up the paper that is piling up in the yard, drop off some groceries,or so much more.  Instead of asking, "What can I do"?  Do SOMETHING.  Sometimes they may not be even able to think what they need.
     Also, for you the situation may go away in a few days but for them it may last much longer.  Are we just a friend til the funeral is over when they lose a loved one, or do we think of them on holidays, birthdays, anniversaries etc?  They have no choice but to think.  If you are a friend, could you think to?
     Remember, next time it could be you, think how you might feel and what might help you, then do it for a friend.  Don't wait for them to HAVE to ask, just do it......

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.  
God bless,

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…
