– Are Parents Aware?


image

My son is about 7 or 8 years old in this photo above and I could just remember his personality even back then…. He was very strong willed / minded for his age and it was a beautiful season to watch him be 7 or 8 years old “on paper” …..but Naturally and Spiritually he was SOOO MUCH OLDER!! Or should I say wiser….

Even down to video games – if it is not a sports game like baseball, soccer – forget about it – parents who allow their kids to play things like Call of Duty do not understand what they are getting themselves into!!

– but just imagine that if I did not steer him in the right direction of what is right and wrong – who knows how he would have turn out –

Video games that are displaying killing, cussing, vulgar and explicit acts puts your children’s mind – body – soul and SPIRIT at risk……

The behaviors of kids today are so out of control and it isn’t just the videos games, but the things that they are viewing, the music they listening to etc… the disrespectful behavior to authority is just simply mind boggling.

However, as a parent… you must first even believe in the things that I am speaking of to even understand the point of this post…..

Try Jesus Christ….. let Him come into your heart and speak to you in regards to raising / rearing your children.

Without Christ… THERE IS NO WAY that my son would be the young Christian man that he currently is……for that I certainly am grateful everyday-

Interesting Day!


image

We had such a good day today!!!! He was able to spend time with his other parent after his soccer game and just relax and have fun….. My other son had me laughing in stitches and trying to figure out when I would meet his girlfriend …. these college kids!

image

My son was trying seriously to convince me why he needed more xbox 360 Kinect Games! LOL

image

image

He smiled for the camera…hoping and praying that his face would melt my heart…….nope!!!! not so!

image

image

He began to start his speech like he was running for political office on the importance of this Soccer Game! LOL

image

He wanted to show me the comparison in prices with different games to show me that I would be getting a deal if I purchased them for him all today!!! This boy is indeed my son because he knows how to debate and present a case very well!!!

image

AFTER….my son twisted my arm to get him a few more games…..he left very happy and couldn’t wait to get in the car to head home…..

When you sit back & see some things from AFAR….God will show,expose and uncover some things you missed when you were UP CLOSE!! I am so glad that I am able to REALLY see clearly now… My son and I have endured and overcame a great deal of things and we are walking testimonies!

He was tired of taking pictures, so he acted as if he fell asleep! Overall this child had an amazing day and it is still early!

Kitchen Table


I know that I keep EMPHASIZING on how awesome that I think my 10 1/2 year old kid is ….but he is! ( well at least 85% of the time ) Look at the little love note that he wrote my mother above…. I was VERY TOUCHED and he laughed at me when tears came to my eyes! I told him when he gets older and he has kids ( according to him, he wants 4 kids / 3 boys and 1 girl LOL ) and his kids show massive compassion to me – he will indeed appreciate all of the amazing gestures as well…

I feel that ” The Kitchen Table” is the place where a great deal of  information can be exchanged and it is funny how when people break bread they become very relaxed! My son talked about November being “a good month” and of course I asked him why and his answer was the same as mine! November represents giving thanks and his aunt, grandma and great grandma‘s birthday is all in one month so that could only mean good things!

Then he stated that he liked Christmas and Valentines Day… Christmas was of course a no brainer – but he did say that he was glad that Jesus shared his birthday with the world! ( my eyes filled with water ) LOL

So of course, immediately – im like yeah..yeah..Jesus loves us all okay now what do you know about Valentines Day! LOL ……. he quickly stated with a BIG MASSIVE grin – Mom its about love! What???????????????????? I fell off of my chair (in my mind at least) I do not get panic attacks but I felt as if one was coming on! He said Valentines Day is for love mom and I love you and my family. I didnt buy it ( although I should have – SHAME ON ME ) I asked him if he liked a girl and he got disgusted immediately and said yuck mom.

 

So that made me happy and I advised him that he could play his video games for A WHILE now….. After that 10 minute LONG conversation – I needed some air!

Women's Stuff

Dear Ladies –


This is a problem and has been for years…. NOT ALL… but enough of men look at and treat women as they are toys…like they are TOYS with a body form as a woman! Stop allowing them!

Ladies!!!! Whether you are single or taken…… WHO CARES right… Just dont allow yourself to be targeted as a game….played with like a game….traded in like a game…..

Happy Blessed Day!


Happy birthday to my big sister!!! She means SOOOOO MUCH to me and has always been there for me when I did not feel like BEING BOTHERED with myself if that even makes even sense!! LOL I have spoiled her REAL GOOD!! She is going to really enjoy the WHOLE rest of the month of November 2012…… I have had sooo many wonderful things planned for her and God knows that it is MY PLEASURE

She is just SIMPLY amazing…..and deserves ALL the happiness that her sweet BIG HEART can surely hold! Last year was great for her too because I celebrated her birthday until New Years!

Inspiration

Dear Life – Thank You!


Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You…Be Free…Share…….

Don’t confuse poor decision-making with destiny. Own your mistakes. It’s ok; we all make them. Learn from them so they can empower you! I have learned to just say THANK YOU to all of the good – the bad – the ugly as well as the horrid things that has transpired in my life. God allowed it so I might as well say thank you and learn from the situations at hand!

It is important that we forgive ourselves for making mistakes. We need to learn from our errors and move on.. You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway…….  One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say “i love you”, “i’m sorry”, “i appreciate you”, “i’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.”

Life can be good…bad…happy..sad…shocking…wonderful…tragic….humble…immoral….respectful etc..etc..etc.. Nonetheless, LIFE is a gift and it is not our job to constantly ponder why things are the way that they are BUT it is our job to improve or change the things that we desire them to be. Ask God to assist us in removing ourselves from situations that should not be, if that is indeed His will.

Sometimes Life is a big thank you…… you may not see it NOW but in the end – it is all a blessing from on high…… Forget yesterday – it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow – you haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift – today!
