What represents God's love to you?

     


     I was reading on a facebook page that I read quite often, Christian Womanhood,and the link to the page is https://www.facebook.com/ChristianWomanhood?ref=br_tf . Mrs. Loretta Walker talks about a book called "God is Crazy about Me"  that she wrote.  I have not read the book yet but it is on my wishlist of books I want.  In it she encourages ladies to have a personal relationship with God. She recommends reading your bible and also look for things in your life and how God shows you He loves you. She said, 
" One of the things that I was taught was to adopt something that represented God's love." Mine is redbirds.
     Why redbirds?  Years ago I read a book called "Redbirds, Rubies and Rainbows" by Mrs. Marlene Evans who was the founder of Christian Womanhood.  She said little unexpected blessings she called redbirds from God.  I started looking for redbirds and I saw those blessings.  I also started seeing redbirds everywhere.  I might have a need that I had only shared with God and then I would see a redbird and I knew it would be okay.  I saw several the day my Moma passed away.  Now everyone who knows me well represents redbirds with me.  I have people who will see a redbird and they say they stop and pray for me.  Redbirds are just one way God shows me His love and care for me. 
     I also love and miss my Moma so much though I know she is in heaven.  So many times since she has passed we will find pennies.  We find them in the oddest places and at the oddest times.  Like the day my daughter got married, a grand was born or maybe I am just so tired and stressed and I need a hug from Moma and I will find a penny.  I see this as God letting me know Moma loved me and it is okay and I will see her again.
    Mrs Loretta says in the article I read, "Hope you are aware of Him on a daily basis." Are you?  Do you have something that represents Gods love for you?  What would you choose if you were to choose one?

God bless,
Pat

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…
