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


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…
