Get Over The Hump With The Word –


image

The worst thing that the enemy could have ever done was attack you, lie on you, hit you, try to destroy you, but left you alive. The devil thought he had you, but you got a way. He should have killed you when he had a chance.
 
Now you are witness. Your testimony of victory is going to help somebody else overcome. They overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the words of their testimony.
 
Your words have more meaning to them, when your actions are consistent with them. Dont just talk it, but walk it.
 
This “Challenge” that you face is only an opportunity to show the “Champion” in you. It may not be easy, but it’s worth it.

Yesterday!!!


YESTERDAY!!!! ………  The enemy almost had me jacked up!  Yesterday I wanted to flip out!!! Yesterday I so needed my mother!!! Yesterday I needed a hug from my sister!! Yesterday I wanted to choke my son!! Yesterday I felt like not wanting to be my son’s mother!!!!! Yesterday I needed God to take the pain away!! The bitterness surely was on its way and I am glad that God “blocked it”…… ( that is a true blessing )

Yesterday I was so upset that I could not even cry!!!! Yesterday, God allowed me to go through a very STRONG AND STORMY situation and he then gave me the peace that I needed and allowed me to have and maintain victory over the situation!

Yesterday God reminded me that I have to regroup and refocus to keep my sanity…. Yesterday God advised me that He allowed all of these things that I felt were so bad to transpire… Yesterday God said.. all is well.

OH GOD!!! Is all that I kept saying out loud!I almost felt as if I was INDEED going to lose my mind and the ONLY thing that can shift me toward that direction is when it comes to “family matters/ situations”…..

Welp guess what! The enemy knows that as well so trust me when I tell you that he works in OVERTIME and OVERDRIVE in that area because he loves to see me breakdown…..

Listen as a parent – your kids will surely take “you there” if and when you allow then…..  My kids ….my teenage twins have really put me through it since they were 12 1/2 years old and ask me if things has gotten any better?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm… umm yeah like maybe like 3 months out of EVERY year that has passed since they have been that age! OH MY GOODNESS – HELP ME! For my teenage ungrateful kids to ONLY desire to reach out when it is a FINANCIAL thing is a sad thing.

It is a HORRIBLE….HORRID….HORRIFIC….UNBEARBALE thing to try and raise your children with another parent who has 100% DIFFERENT WAY of raising them but they are in their care. AGONY I tell you…COMPLETE AND STRAIGHT agony!

Of course children “rather”  sway toward the mind set of the parent and their family that allows things to be a bit easier on them….. Mother or not – I have feelings and indeed to SEE that they do not care about that but care ONLY the feelings that comes along with my pocket book.

The children also have to take blame in the things that they have done as well as have not done through out this horrid process as well… Allowing his father to think “one way” when it is not the truth and my son not speaking up is basically “co – signing” with what the interperation of me in situations.

I have CARED what my teenage kids as well as their father and family have felt about me via parenting LONG ENOUGH…… at this point in my life I feel soo empowered to move on!

My teenage kids will turn 19 this July and I have not washed my hands of “them” but I am indeed allowing LIFE to take its course! I will continue to pray on their behalf but nothing more and nothing less…… I know that I am not the only mother who has NO RELATIONSHIP with their kids father but it is sad that two parents cannot come together and raise their kids.

I do not beleive in allowing kids “to run the show” and the course of the relationship styles of the parents! Well that is what has BEEN HAPPENEING over the years and of course I am the bad guy because I have ALWAYS stood my motherly / Christian ground! It does not feel good while it is working but I know that it is working for MY GOOD.

Praying that God will save my kids! No wait…. God will save them! So my prayer is that they DESIRE and CHOOSE to become and maintain their salvation with The Lord! It is THEIR choice…..

I feel so much better thanks to waiting patiently to hear the voice of The Lord speak to me…. I am well… all is well and I have peace within “again”….

Honor your parents – that is the Holy Scriptures and no success will come until they can learn to honor! Things may look good and feel good but trust me, God will “shut it down” when people least expect it. You cannot go through life not doing what you are supposed to do and feel that you are going to reap the harvest of The Lord!

Watching –


    

 

 

Sometimes I am sure like most people have days that we are sad and cannot seem to shake it until we BUCKLE DOWN to really see what is going on with us! I did not realize how down in the dumps that I were until I looked through my phone and saw photos that I did not know my son was taking of me…. I was walking …praying and fussing at God and myself! Friday and Saturday was just a tad but crazy for me mentally….

Bottom line – It basically showed me that NO MATTER WHAT – he is always watching me! In good times…in bad times… on good days and on bad days.. My son is watching me! (as he should)

I explained to him that sometimes via my mind being so pre-occupied that I may not know that I am DISPLAYING sadness…stress…irritation etc…. AS USUAL…. he smiled and said Mom, I understand and it’s ok because  I know that you love me…… WHEW… talk about having an amazing kid 85% percent of the time! LOL So since he wanted to sneak and take photos – I told him to take one with me looking HAPPY!

HAPPY PARENTS = HAPPY KIDS!

Everytime I get a complaining moment..I remind myself that I rather be ripping and running via his activities rather him not having the desire to do anything…

However…being out of the house 6 days a week is HONESTLY a tad bit toooooo much!!!

Regardless via being a Single Parent or not but with only me doing everything, it does take me into overload as he has gotten older.

Kids running around with coats and hats on was a cute…funny and weird visual….

They play and practice in the rain and snow unless it starts thundering or lightening….things continue!

Welp it did neither but it just had snow flurries with COLD wind and the ONLY people who complained about the weather was us parents!!!

Yup!….the kids were great! LOL

Honey….. I see that the weather is acting a tad bit bonkers right through here but with baseball and soccer and ME …I dont know how well that will work being outside in this cold!

Even just A LITTLE BIT….of respect can go a very long way!!………

Treating people with respect makes your world a nicer place to live in, whether it’s at home, at school, or out in your community. And it’s easy – all you have to do is treat people the way you like to have them treat you.

Here are a few ideas for us ALL to consider!……

• Don’t insult people or make fun of them.
• Listen to others when they speak.
• Value other people’s opinions.
• Be considerate of people’s likes and dislikes.
• Don’t mock or tease people.
• Don’t talk about people behind their backs.
• Be sensitive to other people’s feelings.
• Don’t pressure someone to do something he or she doesn’t want to do.

YES!!!  We can really pursue goals and even attain them but remember when we do, it is important that we rememeber kindness! Stay humble and being nice to our fellow man is actually more healthier to US than to THEM! …….We also live in a diverse nation made up of many different cultures, languages, races, and backgrounds. That kind of variety can make all our lives a lot more fun and interesting, but only if we get along with each other. And to do that we have to respect each other. In addition to the list above, here are some ways we can respect people who are different from us.

• Try to learn something from the other person.
• Never stereotype people.
• Show interest and appreciation for other people’s cultures and backgrounds.
• Don’t go along with prejudices and racist attitudes

Family

Wednesday evening fun!


 

 There is a time when I wouldnt have thought that family would be the ONLY support system that I would have…. We all have gone through some aspect of our lives with more friends than we could ever imagine and could really even keep up with……

However, when you are not able to keep up in number then that usually means that you need to re evaluate and realize that you have too many….  God is love and allowing him to place those important people in my life has help nurtured me in so many areas…

this evening i went home changed my clothes and grabbed my 9 1/2 year old to go house hopping with friends and family and he didnt want to come but he asked to be dropped off at his church instead… which i can understand because the church that he attends is indeed amazing via their kids ministry. Too bad the church that I would like to attend dOes not have one……they dont have enough male presence there as well unfortunately……

I dropped my little old man off at church and sped away!! LOL

these two little munchins are my little nephews…. the one on the right is my blood nephew and the one on the left is my nephew’s best friend Mike, so he is also family…. Just being able to go somewhere and let my hair down in PEACE gives me an “” ahhh moment”….

These two boys I am so elated to say are not, have not and will not be an American Statistic…. They both attend college, have a job, live with their parents, are respectful to their parents and are Christian boys. In 2012 that is to be indeed applauded.

 APPRECIATING FAMILY IS WHAT I WILL ALWAYS DO…..
