PEACEful home! Simple Tips to help have one!


Your home may not be perfect, life is being lived there.  Dishes get dirty, clothes need washing and kids will get into trouble but there are some things you can do to help make your home more peaceful.
1)Speak with kindness, others tend to pick up on how we are speaking and acting
2)Spend time together as a family, eat together,play games, watch a movie, go for a walk
3) Somethings just have to be done to keep a house running-do them with a good attitude.  For example, dishes must be washed but if you gripe and grumble all the way through, it will be much harder than if you just do them and maybe with a smile, or talk to your child or hubby as you do them together.
4) Apologize when wrong and do it as soon as possible-the longer hurt feelings are allowed to grow, the bigger that they can get, so just apologize and move on.
5) Hug-your spouse and your kids, even teens still need hugs even if it is sometimes hard for them to ask for them
6) One of the best things you can do to make your home peaceful is to pray-pray daily-pray for your family-lift each of them to God. 
There is no magic formula for having a peaceful home but if you try these things I bet you will see a difference.
God bless,

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.
