One Word 2016-Nervous, Excited and it is "Grow"



      I am not sure if any of you have ever chosen a "word" for the year.  It is something I have done for a couple of years now after hearing about this from some friends.  It has not always turned out the way I thought but it has been a good experience.
     I know it is not quite 2016 but after praying and struggling some I know my word for 2016 is Grow.  I am prepared it may take me places I may stuggle to go but I know as I grow this year it will be with the Lord.
      I will be sharing more as 2016 arrives and as we go through the year.  I am sharing some verses that God has given me to use and to help me in this travel. The first two are for my personal growth.




The second is for my family

I am nervous and excited to see what God has for me and my family.  Are you choosing a word?  If you are and would like to share I would love to hear from you.  I also look forward to sharing more with you in the next year.

God bless,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016!

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…
