It is essential to know that to be a happy person, a happy family, a happy society, it is very crucial to have a good heart, that is very crucial. We all must find peace from within so that we can love one another effectively as God created us to do so. Peace is not just the absence of violence but the manifestation of human compassion.

So with that being said… it is VERY VITAL of the role FATHER in any given relationship with his child. Some have to be taught how to do and be things in life but also have the DESIRE to want to “do and do better” in all aspects. Do I feel that my son loves his father? Absolutely…. Do I feel that his father loves him? Absolutely…. Do I want things to be better between them? Absolutely….

I am praying earnestly that this is a beginning of something CONSISTENT AND AMAZING with the reconciliation of my son and his father coming together. ( for the 99th time ) This time around would make it a solid 100 and I have HIGH HOPES for this relationship to form and grow beautifully and it would become and REMAIN pleasing to The Lord.

I do not want my son’s father “to take his turn” so to speak, I do not “want a break” so to speak BUT I just want his father just simply “to do his part”…. and remain CONSISTENT with love, compassion, understanding, availability etc..etc..etc.. and all that GOOD stuff that comes along with being a present parent. His father does has it in him – ……

I look at it like a descent guy who has really lost his way……. and maybe he just misplaced the ACTIVATION BUTTON!!! I am praying that little space where ever that button  is hidden becomes activated and stays ON! I have faith so I do believe it shall happen! When, I do not know….. but I do trust and believe that it will come and my son will indeed be glad about it!!!

Pray my strength in The Lord……. Pray my son’s strength in The Lord!

P.S. I am so serious about this topic!

Raising Daughters


Uggghhhh!!! Can you feel the ugggggghhhhh in my voice and in my heart, I mean seriously!

The whole point of punishment and discipline is helping to keep our children safe and teaching them to be good human beings. But what if they keep pushing back? Is there a time when you have to just let them face the sometimes-ugly results of their actions?  Uggghhh! This can be difficult for a parent, who wants the best for their child, to accept.

My super silly 10 year old son gives me NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PROBLEMS whatsoever! Lord, help because they are like night and day.. I really wish that she had even HALF of his tendencies!

I mean my daughter who is 19 speaks the language of wanting to CHANGE but does not whole heartedly put forth the actions via the language of wanting to CHANGE! So what is a Christian Single Parent to do…….. Pray…Pray…Pray….. but in the meantime – between time and NOW –

I want to CHOKE as well as HUG my daughter daily…. I shared with her that we have a Culture Clash issue – the way that I live and condition my house is not ANYTHING of what she has been exposed to and used to since she has not been living with me and it can make a person COO – COO for COCOA PUFFS!

She has such a huge heart but my GOD!!!!!!!!!! So rugged and rough around the edges – I mean heck –  who would NOT want change if they have been living in a crazy state of being?

A family is not a democracy. I have REFUSED and will not be swayed by the “it’s a free world” and “I can do what I want” argument. God placed me to be her dictator, and for good reason. Democratic families crumble………..we are not on the same level – I just wish that she would really get that MUCH NEEDED epiphany – sooner than later….

uggghhhh…….. whew…I needed to vent and now I am 75% better……..

Dear ( ME )

Dear Jesus –


 

Being related to someone is NOT a choice but Being someone’s friend is and Jesus, you chose to be BOTH!

I’d like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me; I’d like to be the help that you’ve been always glad to be;

I’d like to mean as much to you each minute of the day As you have meant, old friend of mine, to me along the way.

I’d like to do the big things and the splendid things for you, To brush the gray from out your skies and leave them only blue;

I’d like to say the kindly things that I so oft have heard, And feel that I could rouse your soul the way that mine you’ve stirred.

I’d like to give you back the joy that you have given me, Yet that were wishing you a need I hope will never be;

I’d like to make you feel as rich as I, who travel on Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to lean upon.

I’m wishing at this time that I could but repay A portion of the gladness that you’ve strewn along my way;

And could I have one wish this year, this only would it be: I’d like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me.
