Remember, Lest we forget

November 11. I can only sit here and try to imagine what those soldiers, what the people of this world, felt when all was ceased.
I don’t need November 11 to remind me of the freedom I have at the expense of others.  I’m reminded every morning when I wake up safe and sound,  I’m reminded when I can dress how I like, I’m reminded when I pick up my bible with freedom to read Gods word, I’m reminded when I leave my house and walk the streets, I’m reminded when I am in society living amongst others, I’m reminded just being a woman who is able to vote, I’m reminded each and every time I enter church, I’m reminded right now writing these things and sharing them with you.

Lest we forget the other 364 days of the year as we live in freedom.

I am so thankful for what complete strangers have done and have sacrificed for me.

Let us remember everyday and not take it for granted.

Thank you soldiers. Thank you to both my grandfathers who sacrificed their lives, thank you.

Remember, lest we forget the other 364 days we live in freedom.

A Good Reminder

I received an email this morning and the person who sent it, explained how they were reading my blog and how encouraging it was to them and how they look forward to reading more. I also saw a post my daughter commented on on Facebook, and she went on to share her experience in a situation she was in and her gratitude for me, her mom :), who stood by her and was her voice when she didn’t have one.

I was, I am, very humbled. I am very grateful that my life’s experiences are able to help others. I am so grateful to God for turning these ashes to beauty.
Some days I feel discouraged and a little blah but it’s times like this that God reaches down, touches my heart and gently reminds me of my purpose and how good my life truly is.

Thank you! Thank you to all of you for reading my blog, for buying my book, for your continues support. And thank You God for always loving me so much and never leaving my side and for providing these bursts of blessings when they’re needed :)

Have yourselves a fabulous, blessed day :*

Ch Ch Ch Changes

Listen friends, life doesn’t change until YOU change. If nothing changes, nothing changes. Attitude, thinking, speaking, living. Life changes when YOU change.
I did it and I’m still doing it, and I’ll tell you, I’m happy, joyous and free today.

Time to stop looking out and start looking in. It’s not easy at first but as you keep at it, one small change a day, life becomes lighter, you start to feel at ease and your outlook on life changes and in turn God works through you and life takes a beautiful shape.

C’mon friends, life is for living, live it well!

Happy Saturday of change to you! ;)

Time For A Quickie?

17, 19, 21- Living Life

17, 19, 21.

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!

 

 

For You And You And You…Yes, Even YOU!

May we all get to this point. May we all learn to believe it and accept this truth.

You my precious friends, are redeemed. WE ARE REDEEMED!

God bless you this wonderful Friday afternoon ;)
