Thankful Tuesday

     I have a friend who is trying to build her blog likes so she started doing Thankful Tuesday on her blog.  I was going to do a post just to help her out.  However when I got ready to do it, I was like wow, this is really good.  I have so much to be thankful for so why not share it.  We are quick to share negativity and controversy but how often do we share blessings and thankfulness.  I think I will start doing this every Tuesday and I hope some of you might join me too.

Sometimes you may think you have nothing to be thankful for but there is always something if you look.

Sometimes just a cup of hot tea is so nice.  I am so thankful when my son makes me a hot cup of tea to enjoy while I am reading my bible.  This may not seem like much but....
I have heard I have nothing to be thankful for.  You don't understand.  No one does anything for me.  Nobody cares about me.  I don't feel good, I have so much going on.  Well, then if that is all true and I wonder if it truly is then.......

Find someone you can encourage.  You, don't have money, well smiles don't cost money.  Call a friend, send a note, a text or email.  Pick up the trash in your neighborhood.  Babysit for a single mother or overwhelmed couple.  When you start thinking about others, helping others you might just see how blessed you are and what you have to be thankful for.

If you woke up this morning and obviously you did or you would not be reading this, you have something to be thankful for.  So now that you do, why don't you go to 
and share on her blog and help out my friend too.

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.

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…
