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

My Sunday Morning Ramble –

I don’t know about you but life indeed is too precious to not honor Christ in your life!

Without Christ, there is actually no life……  Just as much as I cherish my son, God still wants to come FIRST in “my life” …..  in our lives.

Without Him there would be no me, no him and no us to blog about.  I mean, dont you want to have purpose? Experience purpose? See purpose? Enjoy purpose? Thank God for purpose? Live for purpose? If you don’t, then at least realize that YOU should! We ALL were made tactfully and strategically for purpose AND on purpose!

Your life…my life…..means something!!!!!!!!!!!!

Understanding as well as teaching my son that all of his choices have to be God Choices and not Good Choices because indeed there is a difference.

God choices are not temporal but Good choices are. I am not saying that good decision making is a bad ability to have but don’t you want your Good Choices / Good Decisions “to last”……….

Exactly!!!Therefore, with everything decision that needs to be made, including Christ will make all of the difference and make the outcome even Sweeter!

A Cool Kid!


I am assuming because my son loves BASEBALL to no end that we are supposed to be a apart of any and every activity there is! Of course it is getting very cold outside and he knows his mom being OUTSIDE in this type of weather will NOT bless me with warmth! LOL

So of course he wants to do INSIDE baseball training so he can be ready for April! He does not care what state…let alone country that we will be living in – he wants to be ready!

I advised him just as he is making all of these millions of preperations TO BE READY for Spring Training for Baseball that he needs to make just as MANY preperations to be ready via his life for Christ upon his return!

Oh gosh he giggled so loud and said Mom, you always find a way to put God in everything that I do and it is pretty cool! OF COURSE THAT MADE ME PROUD and thanked the Lord for guiding me on raising this AMAZING little boy properly by myself!

Up Early –


Whew….. I go to the gym ONLY 3 days a week and I am DESPERATELY trying to do better so I can become better…..feel better and MOST IMPORTANTLY – look better! LOL Nonetheless, this getting up super early is not blessing me right now because I am about to go for a run –

pray my strength in The Lord….. Im so serious – UGGHHH

I am praying that I dont need a stretcher….  because running outside IS VERY DIFFERENT than running on a treadmill in a gym or your home!

2 Headaches……


I tried so hard not to laugh at this but I was not able to ….  The guy above me needs Gabbby Douglas and then I felt bad for chuckling so hard and I stopped UNTIL this little boy below…I felt HORRIBE that I laughed.. but where is the adult supervision at this bowling alley? I am serious!

Whew Jesus, the little boy slipping on the floor and with this HEAVY bowling ball almost knocking him through the floor was so not cool! Did you see how HARD this little boy’s HEAD SMACKED THE FLOOR? Some serious damage was going on here….. Yikes……….

Always A Sacrifice –


Another COLD night out with my little man with his baseball games… I have been fighting the cold weather via my son’s activities since he was 5 years old and I thought that since he is NOW 10 that things would be a piece a cake or at least a skinny little piece of pie! Nope – cold is cold and frigid weather is still and will always be frigid weather!!!.. LOL

Whew and I thought that going to Boy Scouts 2 times a week staying out for 3 hour evenings was torture – but GEESH – all of these amazing activities that I seem to have to place him in by desire and  due to the lack of Christian Male GENUINE role models that has the DNA of consistency – I almost HAVE TO DO IT and keep him busy as a bee as well as busy as a beaver….that keeps chucking away at activities!

I was tired….frustrate with personal things but through it all… at least during “his moment” I could not allow him to see me sweat….. but I tell you raising kids alone is hard but Mothers raising sons….whew Jesus – very semi difficult because to me the whole process is a tad bit sensitive! Daughters and Fathers / Sons and Fathers were matches made in Heaven evidently and it shows up in relationships. It does not matter how amazing mothers are – fathers are always missed in a child’s life when they are absent…. It is how God made it – It is how God intended it …so shall it be so!

At least his team won tonight in the 45 degree weather right? At least we get to come home by 9 pm right? At least we live close to the baseball field right? At least his homework is already complete right? At least I get off work early all week right? At least I did my running around and can come straight home for the next few days right?

With even all of those positives that I stated….it still does not make MY LIFE less busy –

Champions!


Welp ,the championship has come and gone and my son feels like a million dollars! These kids played their hearts out and they deserve all of the great the cheers that they obtained on tonight!! They indeed worked so hard to get here! #proudMOM

This has been such a very long season that I must admit that I am soooooooooooooooooo GLAD that it is over! Well, he is still apart of other tournament groups but the weeks of having 3 and 4 games surely is not what I am going to miss!

One thing that I always tell my son is that TEAMWORK makes the DREAMWORK! Go Champions!
