Helping Self...

A Few Words Mean So Much


Patience with others is Love…….. Patience with self is Hope…… Patience with God is Faith

My son and I are indeed leaning on The Lord! I cannot guide him if I am not guided by The Father – Raising sons is a task that I cannot do alone. So far so good, thanks to JESUS! It is challenging at times but I manage!

We have forgotten what it means to wait upon God. Those that wait upon God hold to His standards. They know that they can not accomplish what God wants without God’s extraordinary grace. Because of this, they seek His face. They confess their sins.

They call upon the Name of the Lord. Worldliness has a specific term right now called pragmatism. We need to repent from this and wait upon God! I no longer continue to live my life by having GOOD ideas but waiting on God allows me to PRODUCE GOD IDEAS!

A Few Characteristics of Christ

Merciful Kindness? WOW!!!  God is surely moving with my family as a whole and I am so grateful and it feels sooooo amazing!
For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD. Psa 117:2
GOD is so good that we can describe His goodness as “merciful kindness”.

There is a tremendous amount of love I feel when I think of GOD showing me merciful kindness. Kindness is certainly a great thing and goes a long way from the CREATOR and SUSTAINER of the universe. However, when you attach merciful TO kindness what do you experience?

GOD, just GOD! The landscape changes and tears well in your eyes. Nothing have I done to deserve this. I am PRAISING HIM today for HIS merciful kindness!!! Please join me!…..Rejoice with those that rejoice!

Today’s Family Meditation


When things arent working out as you wish.. be patient and stop trying to move ahead of God. His timing is truly perfect and you will NEVER know how perfect it is until you trust Him….. There seems to be a negative situation that transpires on a weekly basis in most people’s live…. However, I work with drug and alcohol clients and things tend to go negative in their lives on a DAILY BASIS… So we must be appreciative for the little things that happen in our lives because things can always be worse – just dont ask how!

Family is there for you most of the time… friends are there for you some of the time but yet AGAIN…. God is there for you all of the time! Learn to respect and honor those who God has strategically and tactfully placed in your path…. absorb and nurture the KNOWLEDGE while you can!

Hmmm…just when we are in need of some serious help, God is always there to lift us up….. He may not show up in the way that YOU may desire but His way is and will always be better for you / us!

The truth is just beautiful isnt it! Remember that God is a LIFE LINE and there is no failure in Him … believe it!

Parent Teacher Conference!


My son is just so so smart and I am glad! Whew – Although I am very elated that my son had all A’s a few B’s and 1 C – I STILL wanted to choke him!

Ugghhh why do little boys like to monkey around in class, why do they talk too much and cant stop, why do they chuckle and think that everything is just so  funny as the teacher walks on by?

Yeah I may be smiling but I have practiced my facial expression to STILL SMILE so that I dont end up choking my son! More things to work on via cutting up  – because I do not tolerate and deal with that CORNY and excuse of ” Boys Will Be Boys ” Syndrome……

I feel when you know better, you do better and my Lord does my son KNOW BETTER…..So he better get his act together or he will take it on the road! Mess around with me and he will be on punishment until he enters middle school >>>>>> I AM SO SERIOUS….. ( at least somewhat at least ) I went to the Parent Teacher Conference with a smile on my face and left the conference with my face and cheeks hanging low – I am officially disappointed!

Raising sons is something INTERESTING – geesh

Hey Pops!


Hey Pops! Yesterday was a little hard but today SUPER DUPER surprising – I was actually alright hearing and seeing all The Father’s Day stuff and you are not here with me! It has been 5 years since you have been gone from this earth ……but it most days only feels like it has realy only been about 2 but …hey 5 is for grace right!

Mommy misses you of course…..Jared said yesterday that when you died the family fell apart!!! OH HOW HE IS RIGHT – GEESH! The twins unfortunately are the same- ….

Sorry dad, I tried all these years ( I MEAN REALLY ) and finally pulled back like a few months ago. You told me to years ago but I could not regardless of the things they did or did not do because they were still babies – my babies ya know?  They will be 19 in a few weeks so -PEACE! ( in so many words )

The other siblings situation is stil the same as well – you would be disappointed but you were ALWAYS optimistic! Whew, boy is it hard being the peacemaker ALL the time and for so many years – boy am I exhausted seriously…

Dad today I show my appreciation for you in my life, but I hope that this isn’t the only day you see my appreciation, because everyday I look in the Mirror I see a piece of you. Love Ya…. and see you when I get to HEAVEN

Pops, I salute YOU on this day ( actually everyday ) but I am blessed because I am your daughter!…..you would be so proud of me!

Mommy Cakes!


Saying thank you can be a difficult thing to do IF you are very prideful and do not respect the sacrifices that others have / would make for you. Doing so means admitting that  you are in another’s debt. I am admitting that another individual did something  for me for MANY ….MANY…..MANY…..MANY years. I am not all powerful but the God that I gladly serve is!

 I need the help of others to survive,starting with the person who gave me life which is Jesus and the person who chose to give birth to me, whom is very amazing. The reality  is that the human race is VERY interdependent.

We certainly cannot and should NOT live life alone……only fools believe that “foolishness”……

 We are  constantly relying on each other for all kinds of resources, physical, mental, financial, spiritual and  emotional.

So…. when I say thank you I am acknowledging that I have received  something from another human being.

Thanks MOM!!

By the way, it is Mother’s Day to me EVERY day that the good Lord chooses to allow her to see another day!
