Journey Through Life---Now I am the Mamaw!


     I saw this picture the other day and it is so true for me.  I wish I could go back to their house just one more time.  So much of my memories are focused around time spent with them, on their front porch, playing in their yard and spending the night on a pallet at their house.  I am so thankful for the precious memories I have now that they are both in heaven.
     As I was thinking about some sweet memories, I stopped and thought, I am the Mamaw now.  Me and Billy are Mamaw and Papaw.  Some day will our grands think this, wish they could come to our house one more time?  What kind of memories are we making?  What kind of things are we doing with them?  Will they be good memories or a time they would rather forget?
     I think our grands really enjoy the things we do with them and the time we spend with them but I will be thinking and praying on this.  I will be thinking and praying on making even more memories before we are just that a memory.
      What about you, what kind of memories do you have?  What kind are you making?

Until next time,
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


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…
