Day 5!

So sorry I posted this so late!

instead of being thankful for many things, I want to address something that every American should be thankful for.

Our freedom, and our brave soldiers, that are fighting for us as we speak. no words could ever be put into the amount of gratitude I have for our brave soldiers.

What are you thankful for?

Day 4!

There is so much to be thankful for, too much to list but I'm sticking to just a few things,

I'm thankful I'm saved by God's grace, that I know I'm going to heaven, it makes my heart flutter, knowing one day I will be able to see my saviour!

On monday I'll be posting a lyric I made. :-) have a blessed sunday!

Day 3!

I'm Thankful that God provides, and that he keeps his promises, I've learning as the years go by, that his words are more meaningful, but of course, that is due to getting wiser, ;-)

I'm also thankful that he can ease our troubles, all we have to do is come to him.

What are you thankful for today?

Day 2!

My, My, time sure does fly by way too fast...I was thinking about that yesterday, as I stood at our kitchen window staring at all the leaves falling in the wind.

I'm thankful for family, some that understand that people change.

most of all I'm thankful for my Lord, how he can work wonders on someone, how when and if we are doing something wrong, even not realizing it, he let's us know, it stops us in our tracks.

I'm thankful for the beautiful color he provides for my eyes to see, everyday.

Day 1!

ah, the excitement brews within my heart, for this is not a special day, this is a normal day, that I praise my lord, that I am thankful beyond compair for what I have.

we should not just be thankful 1 day a year, nor should we only praise him a few days a week, but everyday,

I pray that most of you will not want to stop after our event is over, and that your thankfulness will overflow with joy.

Guest Post.


Just keeping it simple.... As I sat here pondering what to write, once my fingers started, it all became very clear and second nature.

It's often very confusing and disturbing to me to see the way young girls, teenage girls, young women and even some older women are dressing. I don't buy the, "they don't know any better" story. I think it's more or less that they just don't care. Wanting to be a part of the popular crowd or being accepted by your peers should only be YOU being who you really are without all the false pretenses. If the people around you aren't accepting you for that, then you really should ask yourself if you need them in your life anyway.

I've heard different reasoning for the way some dress. Some flat out think it's cute. Some say they want the attention, but do you really want all of the attention you may get? Not all attention is good. What happens when you get the attention of some pervert or unstable individual and they act out based on the way you dressed has made them feel? It may not be what you intended at all (in your mind) but, the reality of it all is that you have no control over what someone else thinks.

Then, it's too little, too late when something bad happens. I think as a society, we have become really lax. Everyone wants to take religion out of the schools, the workplace....their life. There is no choice but God, and the sooner we realize that, the better we will be as a whole. People walk around on eggshells instead of talking to someone about a certain situation and the most important topic, religion. They fear what the other person may think or say. I think we need to be more involved with one one another, talk to each other, be there to listen and direct each other when someone is not going down the right path. Instead, we sit back and talk about them amongst ourselves instead of trying to talk to them. How can we get better as a people if we continue with this mindset? Remember, reach one~teach one~

Too Far From The Truth.

Sometimes, we often face life's struggles and all by ourselves, without even thinking, face them head on.
thinking we can do it on our own, but that's far from the truth.
I know from experience, that facing troubles by yourself, is impossible, living life by yourself, is impossible,
that doesn't mean you can't walk by yourself, but it wants to walk alone? when you could be walking with God?

but sometimes, yes sometimes again, we are stubborn, I know I am sometimes, I don't know if you are, but it's hard when you want something so much to happen, but it doesn't always go as planned, but guess what, I have learned, and you can too! there's a brighter side, yes there sure is, though it's hard to accept, the things you wanted to happen didn't, at that point, now it's time to pray and ask God to show you where you will go next, and how you will get there, to ask him to change you for his plan, his will...

I find it best, that everything always churns out better if I'm as close to God as possible, I feel the most safe at that point, who wouldn't?

Now Ladies, to the point in out blog, is that all? certainly not.  let's go on!

Life's Struggles.....
Are Life's struggles getting at you? not enough money? kids being so hard to manage? schooling? cooking, and more?
are the tugging at you? of course some things too, but as always being enough said, Life is Not Easy. it was never meant to be. you can of course make it easier, but not by yourself. what do you have to do you ask?
Go and Pray. Ask God to make things easier on you, to help you,

I know a woman, she's married, but she has no time to read the bible? to my shock, I replied how can you not have time for God and the Bible? she said she's always too busy.

saddened, I walked away, not knowing what to say, how she couldn't make time for the bible, it then struck me, that that must be why she was having many of life's struggles getting to her.

no matter how busy I am, I know when I am burdened, there's only one thing I can do, and that's pray.
too often we move too far from the truth, and think we can handle life's hard ache on our own, we rely too much on a a spouse or a friend, and not at all on God like we should. is it that we don't trust God enough to take care of us?

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

sometimes, we want, what we want, now, we don't want to wait, for God's answer. in reality, we are already too blind too see what God is trying to show us, whether it be his will or something else.

No one eats soup with a fork, just like you cannot live life without God, and believe me it won't take long for conviction to get at you, you will in fact know, that you need to get right with God.

in James chapter 1 we learn that if we lack wisdom, that we are supposed to ask God.

James 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him

If you are having problems, with money or simply life, Pray, and ask,

Matthew 21:22 

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

whatever life is throwing at you, just remember, you can pray..which reminds me of one of my favorite songs.

                                         I can Pray until the walls come down,
                                                   Till there's healing all around,
                                                   That's something I can do,
                                                     I can Pray in my secret place,
                                                   Calling out your name,
                                                     That's something I can do,
                                                      I can pray.
in conclusion, I hope that in some way I have helped you.

Thank You For Reading.
In His Honor,
