Now I am the Grandma!

     
       When I was a little girl I got very sick.  I would not drink or eat anything so I ended up dehydrated and in the hospital.  Even when I got home I still would not eat.  My Grandmother, Velma Arthur, said and held me.  She was determined to get me to eat and so she fed me one soggy cheerio at a time and I got better.  Now honestly I was not sure I remembered that from memories or just being told about this so many times. 
   


        Fast forward almost 50 years,now I am the Grandma and I have four little grands of my own.  The youngest is sick and he has not really eaten in almost four days hardly at all.  Today his Daddy asked me to see if I could get him to eat anything.  Well after many tears and a few prayers, the lightbulb came on. I remembered my Grandma feeding me one cheerio at a time. He didn't eat cheerios but I did end up feeding him one dinosaur spaghetti-o and one m&m at a time. 
        I hope someday in his future he might reach back and have at least a little memory of today and how much his Mamaw loved him.  I know I sure treasure my memories of mine.
     What about you, any special grandparent memories?

God bless,
Pat

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…
