Friend Radom –


image

The word friend means a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard. Another definition is a person who gives assistance, someone who wants things in the other person’s best interest to occur.

Friendship involves listening, sharing, and showing understanding for the other’s likes and dislikes. Friendship takes time, but it makes any relationship. “Therefore walk in the way of the good, and keep to the paths of the just. ” Proverbs 2:20…. We all want friends, for indeed it is a basic human need to want to be with other people…. They are a necessary part of life – In the world in which we live in…there are positive and negative friends we can choose from AND learn from.

Another Biblical example is Jonathan and David. They loved each other’s company and cared immensely for one another. Too many people are fair-weather friends. They are there until a personal difficulty arises. A true friend is with you in good times and hard times. This is the type of relationship that Jonathan and David enjoyed.

” And when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.” I Samuel 18:1 ” Now Jonathan caused David to vow, because he loved him; for he loved him as he loved his own soul. ” I Samuel 20:17

Appreciate the IMPORTANT people in your life – that’s all

Marriage Talk


image

I have a great deal of friends who are happily AND unhappily married!!! However, we indeed have LASTING CONVERSATIONS and just talk for hours at a time – NO – I am not married but I used to be…….and knowing God, hearing God, knowing what you want and how things should be is a good START for any conversational piece…..

We have to stop asking of marriage what God never designed it to give — perfect happiness, conflict-free living, and idolatrous obsession.

Instead, we should be able to appreciate what God designed marriage to provide: partnership, spiritual intimacy and the ability to pursue God — together. So, what do you think is the most common misconception Christians have about marriage?
image

“Finding a ‘soul mate’ — someone who will complete us,” he says. “The problem with looking to another human to complete us is that, spiritually speaking, it’s idolatry. We are to find our fulfillment and purpose in God . . . and if we expect our spouse to be ‘God’ to us, he or she will fail every day. No person can live up to such expectations.”

Everyone has bad days, yells at his or her spouse, or is downright selfish. Despite these imperfections, God created the husband and wife to steer each other in His direction.

When your wife or husband forgives you . . . and accepts you, you SHOULD learn to receive God’s forgiveness and acceptance as well. In that moment, THEY ARE MODELING God , revealing God’s mercy and helping YOU to see with your own eyes a very real spiritual reality. That AGAPE love that Christ himself wants us to exhibit!

While it’s easy to see why God designed an other-centered union for a me-centered world, living that way is a challenge. So when bills pile up, communication breaks down and you’re just plain irritated with your husband or wife,  These reminders to help ease the tension:

  • God created marriage as a loyal partnership between one man and one woman.
  • Marriage is the firmest foundation for building a family.
  • God designed sexual expression to help married couples build intimacy.
  • Marriage mirrors God’s covenant relationship with His people.

Relationships are essential and a blessing to have BUT takes a great deal of consistency to maintain.

Whether male or female, they basically are the SAME role reversals via being any or ALL of the following…….

Husband/Wife
Brother / Sister
Son / Daughter
Uncle / Aunt
Father / Mother

And of course we are all mentors, mentees, cousins and friends to many. All of positions take work and maintenance is a craft that only God can show you how to balance.

Speaking on a personal note, I sometimes feel indeed exhausted and frustrated. I wear the title of all of the positions that I have named above besides wife.

I giggle because if I added that, I think would it be MORE or LESS stressful!!!!!! Marriage can be a beautiful thing when you are with the right mate because a great deal of pressures in life that you MAY feel, can be released / shared with him or her.
image

Nonetheless,  I believe in the art of maintaining good relationships and will always be willing to work FOR them as well as AT them. I say *AT because some days it will be a trying of your Faith and the bond that has  been established between the parties *at hand!

Love,  communication and mutual respect has the power to change and fix things. …

We had prank conversations with people today at random…had very RAMDOM people take pictures of us..then sat and “People Watched” while giggling….Okay, I’m lying…we just didn’t ONLY “giggle” because we had our own two cents to add as well as people walked by… Forgive us Lord!
We also passed an Obstetrics office and she was walking in there to ask if someone could deliver her baby right now because it was an emergency! !!

Whew honey, I hollered AND was embarrassed ALL at the same time….but indeed I didn’t care either because she almost died a few weeks ago!!!

Sounds crazy right!  So if my momma wants to prank doctors office’s acting as if she needs special services because she is pregnant. ..Mom, go right ahead!!!

This Was Soo Good –


Okay – it is no secret that I am NOT a huge “urban film” movie goer …unless it is a love story –  However, earlier today – I took a few hours to run and see this movie and I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo glad that I did! All smiles from me!

The Best Man Holiday knocked my socks off – and made me have a need for A MILLION BOXES OF TISSUE –  The  movie was very well written and done and left me with the feelings of laughter – sadness – happiness – wanting to be married – respecting friends and family even the more – EVERYONE needs to see this movie because the message behind it is just utterly amazing!

I also saw THOR last weekend with my son and this movie was so good! Okay, the movie was great but THOR – GAWWWWD – whew – as I calm down and take my own blood pressure! LOL ….Seriously, it is very nice to be able to take my son to movies that I even grew up enjoying…..he loved it a great deal and I was glad. I am a little strict and I do NOT believe in allowing kids his age to watch abrasive movies, cussing, demonic and basically ANYTHING that is RATED R and to be honest even some PG movies are a bit too much for him. They are surely going to make a THOR 3
