Life Lessons

Keep Pushing Forward!

It’s amazing that February is the shortest month of the year, yet it’s packed with important events to educate us about our history, our health and our hearts! And, speaking of hearts, Yes, it’s time for  Valentine’s Day. On this one day, many people show their love              towards one another in the form of candy, flowers, cards, elaborate trips, etc. Some persons celebrate by proposing to their loved one. Others celebrate their wedding               anniversary.

We'll Understand Later

I say, again, can you believe that the year is almost over? We’ve entered into the last month of a very eventful and memorable year. Many of us can look back over this year and reflect on the people we’ve lost, the opening of our eyes to the plight of this country and world through a very interesting election season and the realization that there is much work to be done in the Kingdom to win lost souls before the return of our Lord. But, the difference between us, as believers, and those who don’t believe is that God is our strength, our peace and our hope!

Keep Moving!

Water has a calming effect. It's so peaceful. It's so calming. But more than anything I love how it reminds me about life. When I see the ripples steadily moving across the body of water, it reminds me to just keep moving. It doesn't matter the speed. Actually it doesn't even matter the destination because sometimes that may change. But, what is important is to keep moving. Keep moving! Keep pushing! Keep striving! Keep trying! And with each effort you make, you will be closer to your destination!

Back in The Saddle....Again!

It's amazing how much time can pass without you realizing it. When you put a task to the side and say that you will come back to it later, sometimes days, weeks and even months can pass before you come back to it and you wonder how that happened.
Well, procrastination is probably one of my biggest faults. I'm so guilty of saying "I'll get back to that later" and before I know it so much time has passed that getting started on it again becomes such a huge task that I wished I never stopped in the first place.

Life's Little Oops

We got our 1st tardy this morning, and I cried. Not about the tardy. I know that won't matter in the long run. But, to me, it was like a glaring symbol of "The Bad Mommy". I could be mad at my child for taking her sweet time this morning making us have to drive instead of walk. I could be mad at the other parents in the parking lot who seemed to be taking their sweet time parking and backing out which made the line extremely long this morning. But, I'm mad at myself. Why? Because that's what I do.

An Aha Moment...

Have you ever had an Aha moment? A moment where it seems like the cartoonists had gotten it right by drawing a light bulb  over a character's head as they had just been enlightened. I know that I have had several of those moments throughout my lifetime. However, there was one that just stood out to me recently.

I had to make a late night run to the store to get some items for the next day. As I went inside the store and began the search for the items, my mind kept racing back to a gentleman that I had begun to get to know.

Learning to Trust God

This morning, as I received assurance and a reminder from a friend that everything would work out, I was reminded about trusting and believing in God. So often we pray and ask God to guide us and lead us. Then satan gets busy and does what he does and we begin to question and wonder if things will truly be okay. But, I'm thankful for that friend. For, in just those few words, I remembered that God has it all in control. 

28And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Easier Said Than Done

Easier Said Than Done...

Facebook was blowing up recently after the airing of the movie,"CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story". I saw many posts about the great acting and the actual story itself. But, one thing that stayed on my mind was how the narrator (which I believe was supposed to be the voice of T-Boz) stated "We were writing songs about being independent women but the reality was something different." Wow! Isn't that something? I think the reason that it stayed with me so is because sometimes things are "easier said than done".

Back on Track

Oh..... Just an FYI..... It's been about a month or so that I've had issues with my phone, carrier, etc. I really can't say if it's one or the other. I just know that at one point I wasn't receiving text messages and would have to power off and power on and then get a flood of messages. The next phone (as a replacement phone- yeah almost like the refs-lol) couldn't handle everything that I needed for it to do and was only really good for the basics. And now, I'm back to square one.

'Til I Die

Write your post here."Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives." (Jude 23, NLT)

This is the verse which is often used when persons state, "Love the sinner, but hate the sin". And, I have adopted this and gone forward.

I am a Christian. I don't believe in certain lifestyles. I don't believe in arrogantly living in sin.

I am a Christian. I'm nice to you.

Lord, help!

I don't understand. I don't understand. Lord, I don't understand. People can be so nasty and mean. And the really funny thing is that it may not be directed towards me. It could be because I'm the Pastor's daughter and they have a problem with my father. Or they don't like my mother so they don't like me. It can get to be so hard sometimes that I just want to be able to cuss them out and go on about my business. But, I remain classy and I keep it cool! I smile nicely. My parents taught me that!

Always remember, God has you just where He needs you to be!

As  looked at the clock I was a little perturbed that I wasn't going to be able to make it to the gym today. I try to go during my lunch hour, but with only one other worker in the office today it pushed my lunch back and about the time that I would be able to go it would be a busy time at the gym. Since I'm working my way back into the workout routine I have vowed not to go during those busy times. I'm not trying to discourage myself by seeing so many people and having to wait on machines, etc.

Stress 2-27-12

I caught myself doing it again. For some reason I carry my stress in my shoulders. And when I'm tense, my shoulders are raised and I don't really notice until hours later and I'm trying to massage knots out of my shoulders and neck. Why do I do it? I'm not too sure. I guess the triumph now is that I've acknowledged the problem. The next step will be to analyze the source. Stay tuned.... 

I Am a Valuable Tool in Someone's Healing (Borrowed)

I Am a Valuable Tool in Someone's Healing (Borrowed)
 
No man is free until all men are free.  No woman is healed until all women are healed.  These are more than profound statements worthy of thought.  They are the clues to the moral responsibility we all have for one another.  Many of us hold on to our pain, afraid to reveal it.  Ashamed to admit it.  Others hold on to healing information because we believe it is ours to own.  We owe it to ourselves and everyone else to see that all people live painless and free.  It is our duty to share what we know if it has helped us to move beyond some darkness in life.  We can talk it out or write it out, but we must get it out to those in need.  We can support someone and encourage someone else to take healing steps or paths or ways.  We should think about where we would be if there were no books or people to guide us when we need it.  Then, weigh an open heart and extended hand, we can pull someone else along.

"The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak...."

"The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak" just took on a new meaning with me. For the last few weeks, I have not been at my 100% best. And everything that I've wanted to do or needed to do, I have not had the energy to do. And, for me, that has been frustrating. But, I had to take a moment and think about what kind of lesson I could be learning in this and that's when this phrase popped in my head.

Now, I know that this phrase comes from the Bible when Jesus was speaking to his disciples in the Garden about keeping watch while he prayed.
