Making time for you!

 
     Do you ever feel so tired, so give out to others, so empty.  As women we feel like this sometimes and it is usually because we have spent so much time giving and doing for others that we have nothing left for us.  Sometimes we need to stop and make time for us but we usually don’t and a couple of the biggest reasons are this: no money and no time.
     Doing something for ourselves doesn’t have to cost a lot of time, money or energy, we just need to realize we are important too and just do it.  If we take a few minutes to fill ourselves back up we will feel better and be better able to do for the ones we love also.
 
A few of the things we could do for ourselves are:
1) Bible time-you might not have time to read several chapters a day or maybe not even one, but pick a verse or two and read them and think on them several times a day.  Put them in places you will see often, like on the refrigerator, the bathroom mirror, in the laundry room, by the computer or bed.
2) Take a few minutes while the kids are napping or after they go to bed and drink a cup of hot tea, iced tea, lemonade or your favorite soda and just slowly enjoy it, even if it is for just a few minutes,
3) Light a candle or burn some scentsy, the glow of the candle or pleasant smell will calm you.
4) Buy some flowers or pick some from your yard, flowers always make me smile
5) Go for a walk, even if you have to take the little's, the sun and fresh air will make you feel better.
6) Take time to talk to God and listen to Him.

Psalm 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God:

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! God bless, Moma & Daddy

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


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
