Thankful

 I am so thankful that the Lord loves me where I'm at but He won't leave me there. I can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. Now looking for a good bible study to do.........any suggestions?

A Year

Wow.....I can't believe that it's be over a year since I wrote on my blog and it has been quite the year. I can honestly say that it's been a year I would like to forget. I have been through some trials that have pulled me in a different direction......away from the Lord and trying to find out who I am. I can honestly say that I am searching........now in that search I know that I want to be pulled back to the Lord..........I am having a hard time getting there. Can't explain it all nor do I want to bore anyone..........so suffice it to say that if you are a reader or found my blog by accident...........please pray.

So Christmas is over..............how was everyone's? I have to admit that I have had better and the reason I say that is because my whole family was sick with the stomach flu..........that was not fun. I will have to say the positive thing about it was our family was together. This is the last Christmas with our son as we know it............he is getting married in June. I have to admit that this is a hard season in my life..............and praying I make it out ok.......lol.

Have a great day and hope to be back on a regular basis.

Choices

As I was sitting here pondering what to write for this blog............the word Choices came to mind. Well just in choosing to go with this title was a choice.................we make choices everyday in our lives. The choice I want to talk about today is the choice that we have to make on weather to go on our feelings or to go with the truth in God's word.

I know for myself every morning I wake up..........no matter what mood I wake up in I have a choice to go with that feeling or go with what God's word says.............This is the day the Lord hath made...I will rejoice and be glad in it.......Ps. 118:24

Every winter I get the winter blues...........more like the seasonal depression that some people suffer from. I can get so low that it effects every area of my life........my roles as a wife, mom, homeschool teacher........you name it it is effected. On those days it's very important that I don't go with my feelings because those feeling tell me that I need to wallow in this sadness........these are especially the times that I need to get into God's word and see what the truth says....................But you are a shiled around me, O Lord.......you bestow glory on me and lift up my head....Ps. 3:3

Another area that I deal with is fear...........sometimes when fear comes upon me I can get frozen by that fear and not be able to function at all............these are the times I need to choose God's word over my feelings................The Lord did not give me a spirit of fear but a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind..........1Tim. 1:7

With the economy the way it is I'm sure that we all have had some anxiety and worry but we can choose to stay in those feelings or we can choose what God's word says..........Cast all my anxiety and worries on Him because He cares for me.............1 Peter 5:7

The list could go on and on and I am hoping that you get my point in all this and choose to make the right choice and choose God's word....the truth over what you feelings are telling you. We all have choices in our life........the important thing we choose the right choice.

Be Blessed!

Ok......something is on my heart and I feel that I need to share and get it out. I have been a reader of blogs for several years...............I have found some good ones...............ones that encouraged me in my walk of life. The thing I want to talk about is those blogs that you read that make you feel worse than better. Those blogs that are uplifting but leave you feeling like a failure in your role as a wife and mom. Those blogs that the women seem like they have it all together and that they don't have any bad days. Now I know that everyone has bad days and maybe these women choose to not focus on the bad days that they have but the problem with that is for us women who are already feeling down and discouraged and just need to read about another wife and mom who has been there before.

I know for myself...........I have a lot of areas in my life that need changing and I need to read how others handled change in their lives. I don't want to read about the mom who has a wonderful marriage and wonderful children...............where is the truth at? Are some people just afraid to be real that others would see the truth............that you do have bad days and that's ok. We are all human.

So if you read this............share your thoughts. I would love to read them.

Thankful Thursday

Brrrrr...............it's cold outside. Wow I am so not ready for Winter but I guess unless I move to Florida I really don't have a choice.............maybe it's not so bad what the bears do...........hibernate for the Winter........lol. Today is Thankful Thursday and here are a few things I'm thankful for;

*A furnace to keep us nice and warm

*A roof over our heads to keep up out of the elements

*Food in our cupboards to give us energy

*Clothes to keep us dressed

*My dh who is a hard worker for the family

*My 2 wonderful children who stretch me everyday for the good

*All my friends

*Most of all these things I am thankful that I serve a loving God who in spite of all my failures and shortcomings He still loves me and wants a relationship with me.

So what are you thankful for today? Be blessed!

Wordless Wednesday


Here is the photo that I am sharing with you today............this is a picture of my son doing what he loves to do..............leading people (youth) in worship. We are so proud of him and the call that God has on his life.
