Spring Cleaning Ahead!


     Everywhere I turn I see a reminder that time springs forward this weekend.  Springing the clock forward makes spring seem even closer.  Now I am not sure the weather agrees since I am still seeing ice outside but spring is coming.  Officially on March 20th and I guess honestly when the Lord decides.  
     When I think of spring, I think of spring cleaning. I think of cleaning, decluttering, getting rid of unwanted things, fresh and sunny.  Now, I  was thinking house cleaning but as I was thinking on this I thought maybe we need to spring clean our lives too.

     So, now if you were going to spring clean your life, where could we start?  Maybe the same place we would start with our homes.  

     We might need to declutter some things-what kind of things have we let in our lives we need to get rid of?  Maybe it is a habit that needs to be broken?  Do we let things come before our family?  Do we let things or even others come before God and our quiet time with Him?

     We might need somethings fresh-like starting a new devotion or reading our bible daily.  Maybe we  can get outside in nature and try prayer walking or having our quiet time outside with the birds singing and the sun shining.

     One of my favorite verses is:Psalm 51:10
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    So as spring approaches have you thought about what areas of your heart and life needs to be cleaned?  I am praying now that God will show me the areas in my life that might need cleaning or decluttering.  So who will join me?


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


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
