Bible Reading Journey!

     Every year on the first Sunday in January our church has bible day.  We have the Director of the BEAMS ministry come and speak. https://www.facebook.com/beamsbibles?fref=ts They print and send whole bibles to missionaries around the world.  They print them in multiple languages so people can have a bible they can read.  
     Every year he also passes out bible reading charts so that you can mark off as you read a chapter in the bible.  The goal is that you will try to read the bible through in a year.  If you send it in after completing it then they will send you a certificate of completion.  I have tried and failed many times.  I am sad to have I have never read the whole bible in my life.  This year I decided I would try.  I have a couple of new friends who are holding me accountable and checking on me.  So far as of today I will complete chapter 27 of Genesis.  
     True I have a long ways to go to reach my goal.  I do know that if you reach for nothing you will reach it everytime.  I don't want to reach nothing so I am reaching for something.  I will be checking back in here periodically to let ya'll know how I am doing.  Anybody want to join me on this journey?  It is never too late to start.

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…
