Morning Thoughts....

Here we are, it's Wednesday and what a day it will be.  I know, the day has hardly started...it is still new and nothing detrimental has happened...or has it.  Have you ever stopped to think about the millions of people who woke up in devastation...without food to eat...those persons who are battling a deadly disease...or maybe even those whose spouse left last night...never to return.  Maybe you have given thought to those persons, like myself...who have battled abuse of any form..and those who still are....Have any of these thoughts ever entered...your mind.  Each new day is a new opportunity for all of us...to start again.  God gives us each day to do..just that.  Devastation hits all of us at one point, and the way we handle it...is what brings us out of it, thanking God...for a new day.  I embrace each and every day as a gift...for that is what it is...it is not something we deserved...for if you are like me..there were thoughts and deeds that didn't warrant a new day...there were times you said things to people that were not so nice...and even times you did things that shamed the face of our God...but...He is graceful yet...and if you are reading this blog...you are here only by His grace...and His mercy. 

There are some of us who woke up in pain...some still who woke up with a broken heart...and yet some...who wish they had died in the middle of the night.....they exist..these things and feelings are very real...there were times in my own life...I wanted to die.  Times I looked up to God and said...why am I still here...what is it you want with me...what purpose does my life fill?  Obviously there was purpose which is why I am blessed to be writing this blog...to let you know that I too have had my struggles...I too have faced some difficult circumstances...but I am still here.  To enjoy each day as it comes...and to use each day as a means to further my ministry of helping others see the good in themselves.  WE ALL HAVE SOME GOOD IN US...it just may take someone else..to point it out so don't give up friends...don't throw in the towel...and whatever you do...don't turn your back on God...He is there in times of trouble...and will always be there.  Embrace that...embrace this new day and know...YOU HAVE PURPOSE...if you didn't...why would you still...be here?  These are just my morning thoughts...Until my next blog...

A Time to Turn

In everyone's life there comes a time to turn.  Turn why, you ask?  Well if you have lived as long as I have, 50 years, you learn that your quality of life is much more important than your quatity of life. As you grow and develop relationships with others, at one time in your life those relationships are important to your continued growth.  But as you age, and my prayer is that you will, you learn that those relationships that at one time seemed to be beneficial to your very existence, are NO LONGER NEEDED.

When I decided to move from my hometown and live in a totally different city and state and time zone, I knew that there were some people I was saying goodbye to, for the last time.  I knew there were people who while essential to my projects and my overall well being, no longer had a place in my life.  I knew this and with a sadness, accepted it.  When I returned, I no longer had a desire to be near them or associate with them.  I had made a turn.

A turn for the better.  This …

Press In Your Pain

It has been a while since my last post but a lot has happened in and around me.  Some good, some not so good, but all came together to make me a stronger woman and for that, I am most thankful.  In the past few months I have learned how painful a press can be.  We hear that when life hands you lemons to make lemonade.  Well friends, that is easier said than done and I am sure there are a lot of you out there who agree with me.  When life hands you a lemon, most of us do not think of making lemonade rather, we think of the seeds that it contains and how sour it is to taste.  We think about how difficult it is to peel a lemon and the sting the smell can cause in your nose.  In other words we think about all of the things that make it difficult to get to that lemonade.  That my friends is process of pain.

When we are in pain and I am not talking about physical pain per say, we hurt, we ache, we are uncomfortable, and we want to be left alone to deal with that pain.  We want relief, yes, …

Watch Your "Back"

Many times when we are involved in something be it for church, school, work or even a hobby we may have, we are surrounded by people who are in support of what we are doing.  We often hear, "I've got your back", and keep it moving feeling as if nothing and no one can harm us.  That even if someone tried, those who "have" our backs, will defend us and keep anyone who wants to cause harm or stop the progression of God in our lives, away from us.  We feel confident in that, and most times don't even bat an eye.

But friends, we have to be in constant prayer as to who has our backs.  What do I mean by that? Well not everyone who says they HAVE your back should be AT your back.  Let me break it down even further.  If the person watching your back is trying to manipulate your circle, you need to change those or the one who is "backing" you.  Not everyone who says they have our backs, have our backs. Some are watching our backs only to gain entry into who…
