Learning To Bend –

Okay, for a LONG time……I mean a VERY LONG TIME – I have had issues with tattoos….I didnt like them, well I STILL DONT care for them at all especially if they are on MY KIDS…..However, The Lord has helped me GET OVER this little hump that I HAVE MADE a big hump in reference to my son – his arms used to haunt me!!! No seriously!!

Are you trying to figure out how long it took? Please don’t because YES it was very long…but here is the good thing about it – after all of these LONG YEARS – God gave me Revelation about them in regards to my 20-year-old son…. (my baby)

God told me to LET IT GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I shared this EPIPHANY 2 weeks ago with my son while we was out to dinner…..I advised him that The Lord told me that I need to FOCUS on other REAL LIFE STUFF in regards to my son and He will handle the rest…… my son LAUGHED …smiled then gave me a high-five and said – “MOMMY, I AGREE WITH THE LORD”…….. I even had to giggle myself.. because honey – it works and I am glad that I have listened to The LORD.

I made some serious progress folks but listen – I was FURIOUS with God…because “at first” …………I was like HUH? Even look at how my mommy was looking at my son’s arms!! LOL

Nonetheless, I am glad that I am LEARNING to pick MY BATTLES and stop stressing myself  out with the silly things…… well NOT silly things – but the things that should not necessarily take precedence in this season!

Moral of the story – learn to get over the “small stuff”…………I finally did –

Relationships

Long Distance Pals


image

If you are like most of us in this world, you can probably count your closest friends on one hand. So realizing that you have lost touch with all, or even one of your friends, is quite unsettling. But the fact is, time and distance have a way of putting dents in relationships that you once thought would never end. Life becomes very busy after high-school or college.

Without conscious effort, work, husbands, families, pets, and hobbies begin to take precedence over old friendships and become excuses as to why we don’t keep in touch.

But let’s face it, our lives are fuller with friends! And although we become busier and busier every day, it’s a fact that we can be close with our friends, even if they live far away.

MOST of my friends live in other states and I have made it my mission for this WHOLE 2013 SUMMER to go and visit all of them – even if its just for a 4 day weekend….. Relationships lasts because we put in the work for them to do so!

Just For TODAY –

Blessed Quietness –
 
When was the last time you experience quietness? We spend life always rushing everywhere we go. People love to multi-task try just doing one thing at a time. The next time you’re eating just eat don’t do anything else.
 
today…..Try going home without putting on a computer, t.v. or any other device. Spend an hour just listening to Blessed Quietness. We are living so fast and always thinking about another day.
 
We can’t enjoy this day. Don’t borrow trouble from another day! Just be thankful for today! Now if you can practice this for TODAY, then you can continue to make it habitual in your daily living –  Can you do it? >>  Re structuring
