Well hello all bloggers who tune in to read our blogs. Well I had a pretty hard and rough day today but I would love to thank my good friend Trish for praying with me to help me to calm down. Going through these changes and self reflection led me to thinking who is most important to me and do they really know it, Do you tell them, tell others or text, or even write them a note or is it important that you let all the people you love and hold dear know how you feel and that they are loved. We walk along in our daily lives thinking that people actually know when in fact they do not have a clue at all. The reason I say this is because in our recent podcast I talked about my mother being my hero in which I've always held her in that esteem (respect, admiration). But after listening to my mother, she was so taken back because she had no idea I thought so highly of her. For the woman who has always been my world... I couldn't believe it.. She is my world, my rock, my strong foundation which I have been planted in and this is the same ground I'm trying my best to plant in me and my special love and our kids, that firm foundation. I think I will add scripture as I ramble on,Isaiah 28:16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic." Isn't that encouraging news to want to build that firm foundation for our children. I say this alot; I'm not who God wants me to be but I'm striving to be in that perfect place exactly when he needs me."
Now on to my second part allowing others to know you care, love and appreciate them!!
1 Thessalonians 5:11
"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as in factyou are doing."
If we are abiding as we should be doing; simple little easy things; just think about how great our world would be a utopia, I also say, " respect the time God has given us as time is so precious and not promised as no man or woman is promised anything and right when you take it for granted; poof you are gone." Not long ago I was robbed at gunpoint in which I had no fear. In fact, I thought it was a game and was still texting on my phone until they threw my phone. But I can say I was not in fear for my life but I did not want any harm to come to the kids or their mother because if that happened they would have had to kill me to get to them. The reason I had no fear was because I knew my path I was on and no doubt in my mind where I was headed. I have fought my good fight and was confident and that is what I'm intending to give the same for all of you, the feeling that you know what will happen next and that I can say it is a glorious feeling to know that you know Amen. So in closing out my late night ramblings go
ahead and take heed to my words, Let others know what they mean to you as often as you can before they are gone because it's then too late. So act while you still can. Until later God bless you all.
