My brother Michael sent me a beautiful video that was put together by him of our Grandaddy. He passed away back in September of 2015, that is when I really cut back on my writing also.
This video shows just a fragment of the service he did for the Lord. Giving Bibles to churches and all over Bulgaria. Risking his life while working for the Lord so others could know about Jesus. We need to have that dedication, that motivation to drop everything and put Him first!
Thank you again Michael for the beautiful video!
For the last few months I have been slightly distracted from my writing. There has been a lot going on as you all can see, especially since the Election. It is quite interesting to see how America is reacting to how the election results came out. Personally I feel that how America as a whole is overreacting, it is really sad to be honest.
It’s okay to voice your opinions, to express yourself, and share your emotions. But the physical violence and hatred that is sweeping through the nation should not be tolerated. When did violence become a means to freedom of Speech.
God allowed Trump to be President. We are all pons to God’s will and should remember that. So the election didn’t turn out the way some wanted it too, but think of this, God has a plan that needs to be unfolded. He will use Trump like he used all the other leaders we have had for our country.
The world is watching us, the greatest country around, we embarrassing ourselves. You can either be a leader or a follower. Which are you? Well me, I hope to be a leader. Let’s break this cycle and grow up. You can’t get your way everyday. Not going to happen. This is life, and as I said there is no way you can always get your way.
The best advice I can give everyone is to Trust the Lord, Pray daily for our leaders and country, and Know that God is in control ALWAYS so don’t fret.
Recently I have been troubled by our country’s leaders actions. We need God back in our country! Without God we are nothing, He is the foundation that our founding fathers founded this country upon.
When did freedom of speech become freedom of acts-like over zealous rioting (put nicely). Yes we have the freedom to voice our opinion but to act on aggression and hatred should not be tolerated.
We are civil adults… Not children! Show initiative and leadership, be an example. Our children are watching our every move and hearing our every word. Always remember there is always a better way to handle a situation that doesn’t involve vulgarity and violence!
Pray for our country daily!! ❤️
My heart breaks for all those lives that lost so much due to the horrendous flooding in Louisiana and Mississippi. Praying for all of you! This event has really caused my heart to ache just by hearing of this terrible catastrophe. I was also saddened to know our own President is taking a vacation while many suffer because of the flooding.
America needs to step up and become the nation she used to be! We need compassion, leadership, and God back in our country. She is a dying country without God! It saddens me so to watch America to deteriorate before my eyes. We have forgotten what it means to be an American! We should be proud and unashamed! We should stand up and make a stand on our values and morals!
We have lost the foundation to which our forefathers founded this land upon. Justice and the Law have become Luke warm to most. I see so much injustice and unlawful acts daily that most don’t react to but if someone helps out to do some good they are bashed for it. It just makes me so sad! 😔
Today I have achieved so much! It makes me so happy that I was able to be more productive. Due to all the stress my motivation has been terrible but now that it has been lifted off my shoulders I feel so much more alive. Stress is aterrible villain that sneaks up on you and consumes you till you have nothing left. Managing stress has never been my strong suite to say the least but I feel like I am growing. Through many prayers and patience God got me through the tough patches and in result made me stronger in my faith. If we don’t go through the tough stuff we will never grow and learn. Today I am spending some much time with my kiddos and enjoying the little moments. That’s what life is all about.
This year has been a challenging one, almost too complicated to understand. To be honest as I have faced the trials that this year has brought me I have learned that without God there is no foundation. God has been my rock and has kept me a float as I was going through all the crazy chaos. Now that I look upon the events that have gone on I now have peace of the end result. No matter what you are facing always remember God is there to guide and encourage you along the way.
Walking by faith has been super hard for me lately. I want to fix the problems my self, I think with most that holds true for most. As silly as it sounds I feel like the bumps and trials I have face this Summer and year have made me stronger. I now understand the reasoning of walking by Faith.
There is beauty behind it, just as children depend on their parents and put their full trust in them we should do the same with God. He is always there and has a plan for each and every person. Waiting for the Lord can be a very difficult task for the simplistic mind of people. We tend to jump the gun and try to manage everything ourselves.
I stressed over things I had no control over this summer which made me partially miserable. The stress could have easily been avoided if I would have trusted the Lord instead of trying to take matters in my own hands. Trust the Lord, He knows what He is doing! 😊
Yep…been a while since I truly gave an update of what has been going on. Well it seems like a lot lol! Summer has been truly keeping me on my toes and is going full fledged out crazy. Hopefully when school starts the chaos will die down a bit, at least from the unplanned crazy standpoint that is. We are currently in the middle of buying a house which I have to say definitely is exciting but SUPER stressful!
I am hoping in about a day or two we will be able to finish everything up and finally move forward with the house :). That is the goal though, depends on the underwriter and their mood. Starting this new chapter is definitely exciting and welcome due to all the rough patches this year has brought me.
This year has really brought a lot of pain, but through it all I have grown stronger. Through everything I have faced this year I have learned that nothing is Greater than God. No problem I have faced, dealt with, or will deal with is bigger than God. That is what has kept me pushing through the pain and the rough patches. 🙂
Always remember that no matter what you are going through God is always there. He is always there to pick you up when you fall, wipe away the tears when you cry, and lift you up when you are down. For so long I pushed God away because I got lost in everything around me that I forgot how dependent I truly was in need of HIM. We forget as humans that we are so small and that GOD is so BIG. Always remember no matter what you are facing God is always there waiting for you!
I just thought I should share this because in a way I feel like many can relate even if they don’t admit to it.
Where do I begin…society seems to be in divided tyranny. There is one major stance I take very seriously, one that many take offense to or shun because in some eyes it is not a politically correct view to take a stand for.
Recently I have seen a lot of terrible posts regarding abortion also known as Murder. Yes, I know I said the “M” word and Yes I meant it. I am saddened by the unborn babies that lose their lives daily due to the lack of responsibility and compassion for life.
Somebody has to raise a voice for those that can’t speak or stand up for themselves! We do that for our own children every single day. When you conceive a child your title as a mother and father is automatic no exceptions. Unborn babies feel, hear, and are intelligent. They are gifts from the Lord and so many take them for granted.
It is just breaking my heart….Take a Stand! Fight for the Unborn!!!
Sometimes I wonder if I am literally in the twilight zone :). Laundry everywhere, toys scattered like death traps…Yikes! and video games a blaring while the cats are chasing each other from one end to the house to the other. Yep, that is a typical day for me and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Being a mom is so enjoyable and has so much meaning. Through the crazy and dramatic moments there are always unforgettable memories being created. Life is like a story book with lots of amazing pictures. The memories are the pictures and as you gain them you are building on your story. So what is your story… What is your adventure?
We all have a story to tell no matter how interesting, strange, out of this world it may sound. Everyone is different and has a purpose to fulfill. No one can write your story except yourself. Mine is to serve the Lord ALL the days of my life, standing by my beloved husband through it all, to be the best Mom I can possibly be to my Children, and live my life to the fullest! 🙂
