What If Moses Had I- Pads (instead of the 10 Commandments)


mosesandipadsThe photo may REALLY look silly but in the world that we live in…. People would STILL have sinned

 

if we could SKYPE God…..

Text our prayer requests….

LOL our enemies……

Email our sins…..

Facebook Request our levels of forgiveness

Tweet our apologies…..

Instagram our way into Heaven……

God knows that the list could go on and on and the SAD THING is that if God would allow it, people would do it!

Night Cap……

God does NOT do the things that we expect Him to do just because we FEEL THAT they need to be done… He is GOD!

HE also did not……write me a memo stating that He would make my life easier…..

HE also did not…..give me a hint when my 19 1/2 year old twin children would finally decide to follow Him …..

HE also did not…..call me on the house phone to remind me to wake up early in the morning to pray…….

He also did not…..text me nor email me to tell me that I need to make extra sacrifices for Him…..

HE also did not….fix the issues within my immediate family, that has gone on for the last 6 – 7 years……

HE also did not….. allow my mind to forget all the hurt that I have experienced from family and friends…..

HE also did not…..relocate me to the place of my choosing……..

HE also did not …. allow my father and grandmother to live longer per my request….

HE also did not ……heal my mother from some of her afflictions….

HE also did not…. deliver me out of my current Wilderness…….

Regardless of God NOT doing the things that I have asked or wanted from Him…. the real question is why and when will I start doing the things that HE asks from me???? YES!! This question can be geared toward all of us….

So with that being said… we should always wake up and go to bed saying to The Lord…….

Family

I Remember When…


I bury my money in the back yard, the BUCKWILD way.

I remember when I was little and me and my brother used to hide money in yards when we were little… those were the days and LIFE seemed so much easier….  Waking up every Saturday morning and trying to find all of the places that we hid our jars filled with money made it so fun!! We also found out that some of the jars that we end up finding were placed there by our dad!!

So you can imagine – how exciting these weekends were! LOL

Now looking at the record player brings back MASSIVE memories as well, especially when my daddy bought my very first album!

The Postal Service release a long-awaited new song to help us through the dead of winter. Stream it on Buzzworthy now!

It was Michael Jackson’s THRILLER album and I was the happiest little girl in the world….. whew lawwd I was so loving my dad for that!! I am assuming that is why my bond seemed so strong toward his music and his life…. my daddy felt listening to Michael Jackson was safe and he did not seem to mind that I even had a crush on a boy that was at least 15 yeas older than me! RIGHT!!

He also bought me my very first poster of him as well….. My father used to catch me kissing the poster on my wall and I had tons of lipstick marks all over Michael Jackson’s lips! ( NOT TO MENTION, that I kissed him in the same spot on the poster soooo much that his lips started to rip through the paper! )….

LOL He bought me a brand new poster and told me not to do it again…. I did not listen because instead of kissing the poster with LIPSTICK….I started sneaking in my oldest sister’s make up bag and using her lip gloss and my dad’s chap stick…. LOL …. I was soo funny and thought Michael Jackson was the BEST THING since jelly shoe sandals….. LOL

Ugghhh…. oh how I miss my father who passed away……it will be 5 LONELY years February 18, 2013!!! With my birthday being TOMORROW – February 12, 2013 for me to even be writing a blog with any type of laughter is A MIRACLE….. I have not really full fledge celebrated my birthday in almost 3 years… Last year, my dark cloud started to lift and now it is COMPLETELY GONE!!!  >>>>Whew – my daddy would be even more proud of me!

Before June 2013


I have indeed planned to visit all of these places before June 2013….. I will…I can and I must…

Solo me falta NYC =/

I have lived in so many states… that picking up and going is surely not an option for me. I like to think of myself maybe as a cavalier so to speak… Pick and go..Pick up and move in an INSTANT!

I have talked and shared LONG stories with people who have traveled…..relocated a few times as well as people who have NEVER lived outside of the same state, never traveled or even driven across the county borders of their municiplalities….. and I HAVE TO TELL YOU that the mind sets are conversations are totatlly different! I wish that EVERYONE would desire to shift their life just a little because the world is not only a big place but it is indeed HUGE / MASSIVE!

Explore it so that you can enjoy it…..BEFORE you die off this earth!

Helping Self...

Addicition Maybe?


Now the photo above COULD represent me just taking a photo with a saleswoman in a store correct? Welp…. that would be too much like common sense Im sure- Or could it have been THE LORD using her to stop me from going any further? The lady did seem very excited to see me, we both introduced our kids to one another whom had not seen one another in 8 short / long years! She saw me in an aisle and looked at me and stated that I looked as if I did not need another stitch of clothing for my closet…….

She would not know that because I only had 4 things in my arms, so what would make her have that huge assumption of me I am wondering?

She is my cousin who just happens to work at a store that I GO INTO EVERYDAY to buy something…. Yeah.. I know that is not normal – pray for me instead of laughing at me okay! Or how about pray for me instead of judging me! LOL

My son just so happened to see a movie called Confessions of a Shopaholic and said….Mommy that is you! REALLY? My sister chimmed in and said definately that is you – I did watch the movie and surely I did NOT utter one word until it was over and said –  I AM NOT THAT BAD! However, when she went into her freezer to defrost her credit card….. I felt a need to pray – cry – laugh – giggle AND REPENT all at the same time! Weird I know…

I know that God HAS TO HELP ME with this little ” problem ” that keeps bothering me! UUGGGHHHH!!!! Does it make it ANY better that I do pay my bills as well as my weekly tithes / offerings AND give to non profits? Well, as long as I do give back right?

The church is waiting for ME tomorrow and there MUST be a tiny spot with my name on it so that I can get on my knees and ask for HELP! Yikes….

Relationships

Distance Can Be Your Friend….


Distance for some loved ones is what is needed to maintain at least a satisfatory relationship……for some people it is good to stay in contact by way of technology…..you are not too close and not too far but there is a way that you can always stay in touch with one another..if need be

However, Loving a few people from a distance and give them the space and time that is needed so that they can get their minds right….their actions right…their motives right before you allow them back into your life… Again it is our individual choice / decision whom we let enter our lives….

Forget the slogan of reason…season and lifetime… sometimes there are people who do not even FIT at all and we still try to “find a space for them” or a nice cozy undeserving slot… why do it if we know FROM THE BEGINNING that they do not belong in your life….let alone NEAR US?

I am sure that we all have been there….. but the difference is that I STOPPED it.. now it is your turn!! Stop letting people enter who are not welcomed!

Thinking of my buddy Phil ( for single and married couples ) and all of his great wisdom right now….. much love my friend!
