FOR TODAY – March 2, 2015

Outside my window…I see a cloudy, drizzly day and cold
I am thinking…of my Moms meeting tonight and how much I always enjoy the fun, food and fellowship
I am thankful…for second chances and a God who never quits even when we do
In the kitchen…pork loin roast with potatoes and carrots in crock pot and lima beans on stove-smelling divine
I am wearing…jeans, breast cancer tshirt and slip on shoes
I am creating…a plan to do better about posting on my blog
I am going…(I should be going) for a walk today, Jenny and I are supposed to start training for a 5k walk for breast cancer in the fall
I am wondering…how I will get caught up and be able to enjoy life and not just feeling like surviving
I am reading…The book of Proverbs, one a day in March
I am hoping…that spring will be here soon 
I am learning…that I matter too
Around the house…so much organizing needs to be done
I am pondering…some things that need to be organized and planned for
A favorite quote for today
One of my favorite things… watching the grands running and playing outside
A few plans for the rest of the week:  cleaning, preparing for upcoming meetings, church and grands
A peek into my week

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,

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…
