Tired of Faking it Til I make it and What I am learning Along the Way!

This may be good for some people and in some situations but I have reached a point in my life that this is no longer working or where I want to be.  I don't want to whine or complain or have pity parties but I can't and won't fake it anymore.

I am not trying to have a pity party, I just want joy, I want people who encourage not people who are just looking for something to talk about, people who smile at you and then talk about you.  I also want to be that for others.

I have taken a few steps back and am searching for answers.  I am reading my bible more and I mean really reading.  I am not doing the "I read 12 chapters today" and yet got nothing.  I may read 1 verse or 20 chapters but I really read and seek to see what God is saying to me.  I am writing scriptures in a scripture writing plan too.  Jenny and I are sharing our writings and our thoughts to keep each other accountable and to encourage each other.  I am seeking sometimes also to just sit, to be still and listen for God and what He is saying to me.

I am also learning as we encourage others we ourselves are encouraged.  So many people are hurting and looking for a friend.  Ask God to show you someone who needs a friend and you may just find you are the answer to both of your prayers.

Lord, I need you in my heart, my life, my everything.  I also want to be used by you to tell others, to help others and to encourage others.  Lord, we all need you and please help me and use me.

Listen to this song!  

If you would like to write the scripture with us, let me know and I pray for anyone reading this.

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,

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
