spin

Much of the time I always try to bring a positive spin to the issues of life, the joy that can come from the simplest or the most complex things.  I try everyday to learn to be better....better at what?  Sometimes I go googling for it, and sometimes I come across it.  Lately, it's to be more real...haha...yeah I say things like they are, and have no fear, I will not get worse...but I want you to know that much of the time I do feel scared, upset, down about some things.  Life can be brutal and real.  It is not always laughs and giggles, but I think thru the situation at a dozen times a second, to try and find the good in it, the positive spin on it.  Why?  To survive it and live.  By the grace of God.

God Blesses!

so much

So I could blog this mornin about our emotion filled weekend....how all of our basketball girls amaze me, how my own children teach me how to behave everyday, or how people in general facinate me, how there are so many who need prayers today, and how I would appreciate your prayers for this ear infection funk that I have...and most people I know for that matter, but instead I want to put a little seed thought in your minds and hearts.  Something we have talked about before, but is heavy on my heart.....a PLAN.  When we pray for others do we ask for healing or His will be done?  He has a plan for us.  I don't believe it is our objective in life to try and figure out what that plan is, but to pray for the strength to follow it.

God Blesses!

mornin

So I've had contacts for years and chemo brain for years so you should think these things wouldn't amaze me....I go to put in my contacts and at the same time am thinkin...I'm not even sleepy cause we stayed up watching tv...which made me lose my focus. I put my contact in and immediately couldn't see! At first I panic. I think Oh my Lord what is happening? One eye is like I have no contact and the other is horrible!!! Now why would I panic about something happening to me. I mean its not as though I'm accident prone or something (come on not ALL of it is my fault..) well I immediately calm down and realize that for the first time in my life I put both contacts in one eye. I will not tell you how long it took me to discover it. Laugh at yourself today and Thank God he gave us you...yes just like you are.

pray

Yesterday I found out about two different "friends of friends" who have cancer.  Please pray for all of those who are fighting (nowtice I didn't say those with cancer).  Please pray for all that cancer affects, caregivers, friends, family, and those who don't even know you.  Also, all around is expecting snow....pray for those on the roads.

God Blesses!

winter

Winter is upon us....although the automotive industry hasn't been informed! haha!
We were watching TV this weekend, flipping channels and while waiting for a movie to finish so we could watch the next we heard the following quote from Superman Returns....I loved it.  We talk a lot about heritage and how we influence others.  I loved this on because it reminds me of my ancestors who have passed on and how I have always felt infused with their presence almost as if I were drawing from the soil in Brackentown.  Here it is:



But we will never leave you... even in the face of our deaths. You will make my strength your own. See my life through your own eyes, as your life will be seen through mine. The son becomes the father, and the father...the son


God Blesses!

crazy

Like everyone else this week has been crazy. Aunt Edith fell again and broke her other hip, we went back to work, the girls went back to school, we had a pep rally for basketball, practice tonight and the girls first games of the season are tomorrow!  Everybody is busy though and we are not alone, not with each other nor without God.  He is with us and I thank him for his strength!  Today, tell somebody what God has done for you, not what you have done for Him.  Glory to God!

God Blesses!

Holidays

We had a great time with the girls.  We enjoyed being with each other and just relaxing and visiting with family and friends.  Hope all of you were as blessed as we were this Holiday season.  Please continue to keep that focus on Jesus....the reason for the season  can last all year.

God Blesses!
