Blessings, do you see them?


    We all have blessings in our lives, sometimes the blessings are big and those are nice but sometimes they might be little blessings we miss because we are too busy to see them, or are so focused on the negative that we can't see the positive.  
     Sometimes the blessing might be a redbird right when I feel like I want to give up, a hug or I love you from a grandchild.  It might be someone bringing supper after I had surgery, a card, flowers from online friends, or a surprise package from a friend just to brighten my day.  It might be a picture a friend posted on my facebook wall, a rainbow on a rainy day, a phone call from a long ago friend. These are some of the blessings I have had recently.
     What are your blessings?  I don't know, do you?  Are you so focused on what you need or what you want; what someone did or didn't do;how things are going or not going?  For me redbirds are a sign from God for me that He is there, that He cares, that someones loves me, that I can make it through the storm or whatever I am facing. Look for the signs in your life, it might not stop the bad but it might remind you that no matter what is going on, it won't last forever.  
     Also while you are looking for your blessings, maybe you can be the answer to someone else who is looking for theirs. Remember God says give and it shall be given unto you, so what are you giving out?

Blessings,

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…
