The exact ages my kids are today. The exact ages I was when I gave birth to them. Gosh, looking at them and watching them live life is a breath of fresh air. They go to school, work and have a social life. They have hobbies, they have goals and they are ambitious. Best of all, they’re kids. :)
It’s funny how different their life is compared to mine at that age. I was changing diapers, playing tea parties and action figures. I was living life for them. Living life around them. I’ll tell ya, I was living because of them. You see, I have come to really accept and understand we are exactly where we need to be in life at this very moment. Mine at that time was raising these fabulous kids of mine. And you know, they are really great kids. Just today my son was out with me cleaning up around the house and we are able to giggle together and be in each other’s company. I am so very glad and so very blessed life turned out the way it did. I am also so very pleased my kids are living life and truth be told, that I’m not a granma yet! lol ;)
So on that short note, I am basking in the fruits of my, ehemm, mine and God’s labor, and I’m enjoying watching my kids grow up. It’s a good reminder for me also to see how far I have come in this journey of life. It has definitely been a journey worth taking!
“And you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” – Jesus in John 8:32
There are so many things I want to say and so many choice words I would like to yell but there is no need. God does my fighting for me and that my friends is what counts ;)
Thanks for watching.
It’s one blessed morning. I’m feeling grateful for the rain and wind today. I’ve lit some candles and I’m enjoying my time in Gods Word. Had it not been for Him, I would not be able to enjoy the peace, serenity, quietness and overall blessing of this time. He has changed me. He has given me a new heart. He has given me a new life. God did this for me and He can, and will do it for you too. The catch here is you need to be willing to give up your ways of doing things. Your ways of living. What are your ways? Do you even know? Until you hold up your ways and compare them with Gods ways you will not know the difference. Most people see this as a jail sentence. It’s not. In fact, it’s freedom. Freedom. For those who know me deeply and personally can testify to the difference in me. And I can boldly say, I live in freedom through Jesus Christ. When you decide, or get disturbed enough with yourself and life to make a change, we dig deep, our eyes are opened to ourself. We see life in a new way and want that peace and happiness in the midst of trouble. Friends, you can only get that through God. In this world you will find your pleasures and instant gratification of self indulgence but let me tell you, it is temporary. Once the hoopla fades, you’ll be out seeking something bigger and better and this cycle will continue and continue until you come to the end of yourself and surrender to Him. Jesus Himself says in John 15:5, “apart from Me you can do nothing”. I’ve had to learn that the hard way and that’s ok for me because what I have found in Him is no comparison to any thing that this world has to offer me. Im living, breathing, standing today because of Christ and nothing else.
My prayer for you today is that you get yourself a copy (if u haven’t yet) of Gods Word. Forget all you’ve heard about Him through religion and school and church and get to know Him for yourself. Start with just five minutes a day, I suggest you start in the book of John, and start reading. Just read and read. Don’t try to pick it apart or figure things out. Just read and let it soak in. I can guarantee you will feel, you will see, you will breathe, and you will live better.
Don’t just do it for one day, I challenge you for one month, ok how’s about two weeks? Take just five minutes and devote it to reading Gods Word. It WILL change your life.
That’s all I gotta say today. Thanks for reading. And my hopes is that you will take this challenge. Honestly, what do you have to loose?
It’s a brand new day. A brand new day! Don’t live in past regrets or mistakes. Today is a new day where YOU get to choose. You my friend, get to choose your attitude, your demeanor, your happiness. Today is a new day. Make it count and make it great!
Hello hello friends. It’s been awhile since I sat and blogged. So much going on with the school year coming to an end.
With that said, I am soooo beyond thrilled to share some really exciting, serious news with you!!! Ok, so my son, whom I had in my teen years, is now 21 years old. He has just recently completed his last year of University and graduates this year. How proud is this mom? Proud beyond belief!
If graduating from University was not enough, God decides to throw in Alex graduating with a high achievement record!
I’m going to post the letter he received from the Dean of the University (I asked permission to post ;)).
So here it is;
Oh goodness me, I am so happy for him. This guy of mine has worked so hard. He kept his focus and stayed on track. What a victory.
This Friday will be the ceremony. It will take the Hand of God to keep me in my seat. When I hear his name I’m going to want to jump up and down and holler “woooohooooo, that’s my boy”!!! Hahahaha, could you imagine my son if Idid that? hahahaha. Mind you, he’d probably expect it. ;)
I will definitely post pictures and a possible video.
Well, gotta run. Ciao for now and God bless <3
Hello there my friends :D
Today was a big day for me and God. I was the featured guest on Canada’s #1 Christian Talk show 100 Huntley Street!!
I gotta tell you, what a beautiful bunch of people I met there today. They were so kind, gentle and so spiritual. It was a wonderful place to be.
I’ll be quick with my writing today as I have added the video interview I had with Moira Brown from 100 Huntley Street this morning.
What I would like to say is, no matter what we have gone through, God can and He will give you a new heart of love and forgiveness and take you places you could only dream of! :)
An amazing thing happened after the show, I met a beautiful young lady who just so happened to be a young mom, and shared a little bit about herself with me. She was able to do so after hearing a little bit of my own story. You see friends, the more we share our life and experiences the more God uses that to help others. I am so grateful I have chosen to walk with God and use what the enemy intended to destroy me, for good in helping others. Praise You Lord!
To all of you, thank you again for all your support over the past year and a half I’ve been blogging and sharing my life ;)
Thanks for watching ;)
Happy beautiful day to you :)
“In the day when I cried out, You answered me, And made me bold with strength in my soul” Psalm 138:3
Ahh yes, He did. Friends the day I came to the end of myself and cried out to God, was the day my life turned around. That was over 15 years ago. God has opened so many doors and I have walked through them. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d be where I am today. Talk about receiving boldness & strength, I have faced things I never thought I would get through. All honor and praise goes to God. Without Him, I can do and am nothing.
Know that wherever you are in life, God will meet you right there. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or haven’t done. Our God is a God of second and third and fourth (and so on and so on) chances.
Reach out and take His hand, He will take you places you could never ever dream of.
I hope this day is beyond happy happy for you! :D
