Fellowship Friday!!!

Hello all! Happy Friday! This week is about throwing away our inhibition. I don’t know if it was this week or last, but we were at walmart and I was dared to dance with the robotic santa at the front doors of the store. What was my response? I went over to him and held his hand and danced and sang! Why not? I had fun, it made me smile, I hope it made those around me smile. If not, oh well! This weeks story is about how children just don’t care, and how we need to learn to stop caring. This sweet little girl sees santa sitting alone eating at a restaurant and took it upon herself to sit down at his table and talk to him as though they were old friends! Children don’t care what other people think. They don’t have concerns of embarrassment. I love the freedom children feel! I think that is what Christ was talking about when He said to come to Him as a child. We need to be free of all the concerns of this world and have eyes only for Him. I pray you all have a safe and wonderful God filled weekend!! Check out this story and more here.

Fellowship Friday!!!!!

Hello everyone! I pray you all had a wonderful God filled week. I was thinking about all the wonderful things and ways God makes a difference in our everyday lives. Things and ways that we don’t even realize! From the life changing miracles, to something as simple as a stranger smiling at you as you walk by them on the street. If you sat back before you went to bed and thought about each and every blessing you received, in just one day, I think we would all have a new appreciation of all that God does for us each and every day. I love the weather and most things that have to do with it. Most of the time if I am alone the tv will be on the weather network, I am a bit of a geek! :-) I love this picture! God is the most amazing artist, considering He is the original creator so it kind of makes sense lol. His majestic ways of showing us He is with us and watching over us continues to amaze me! The message for this week is simply count your blessings, that’s all. It is a similar idea as why I created this fellowship Friday blog. It is so easy to find negative and bad new at every corner, but when you take a moment and look around, you will see the never-ending love and blessings from our Lord our God. For stories like this and many many more visit Sunny Skys news. God bless all of you and have a safe God filled weekend!

I encourage you to take a moment and really look at the blessings that had been bestowed upon you today!

Fellowship Friday

This weeks fellowship friday is going to be a little different. The topic is bullying. In elementary school I was bullied, like for the full 6 years! It was not terrible bullying, not like a lot of children today. It was mainly verbal (sticks and stones right? NOPE!) I guess you could say I got beat up once in the third grade, my friend was being bullied and when I went to stand up for him they pushed me through a fence. My heart hurt much more than my body! This morning I was sitting outside and one of the neighbor girls was walking to school we said good morning, I asked her if she was going to have a better day today, (yesterday when she was walking home from school she was crying, we thought she was but weren’t sure. By the time we realized she really was crying, she was a few doors from her home.) She response made me cry, she said after school yesterday a mean girl beat her up!!!! We are talking about a 3-4th grader at the most! This poor child had to feel those terrible feeling that most of us adults had. Mind you just because we are grown adult that does not make us exempt from bullying. I don’t know how many times I have felt the pains of bullying as an adult. The beautiful part of that though, we have the ability to shake it off! I have a secret love for a few of Taylor Swift’s songs, and Shake it off is my absolute favorite!!! I don’t know if you have heard it or if you have really listened to the words, but oh my goodness!! This morning after talking to neighbor girl this song came on and I cried again! Not because I was sad though, it was because I realized I was a fool! I was having a conversation with David this week and he pretty much said the same thing as the song! It took feeling sad and vulnerable and hearing the message in a song to really appreciate and understand what he was trying to tell me! I like to put up a fake tough front, then go and cry in the corner. Let me re-phrase that I USED to put up a fake front, then go and cry in a corner. Now? I am going to keep my chin up and my focus on God! I am sending prayers of love and healing to any man, woman, and child that may be suffering from the effect of bullying. You are handsome, beautiful, and just the way God intended you to be! God bless all of you have a safe and wonderful God filled weekend! Don’t forget to shake it off!!! :-D

Monster in me

For David. I wrote this quite some time ago and have not posted it. I was visiting with David today and it felt as though God needed him to hear/read it. This is an extremely personal piece, when I wrote this I was just coming out of a very dark period in my life. God bless all of you, have a God filled day!

Monster in me

I look in the mirror and all I see is you. You hide behind my eyes, laying dormant just waiting for your chance to strike. You find my fears and insecurities and feed on every one of them. You get bigger and stronger with each one. With every second guess. With every doubt. You are in your glory every time I let you win. With Him I am stronger than you! I can concur you. You are only as strong as I let you be. I am done with letting you take control of who I am and who I want to be. No longer will I allow you to hold me back, no longer will I allow you the satisfaction of seeing me weak and afraid. You will no longer be able to control my thoughts. I am His and He is mine. With Him you have no power!

Realistic views on women

I found this article on the web (sunnyskyz.com). I love the idea of showing little girls that they don’t have to conform to the ideals of what society thinks a woman should look like. Women are beautiful creations of Gods, each made unique and wonderful! God bless all of you have a wonderful God filled day!!!!

What do you think? Should children’s companies (i.e. Disney, Pixar, Nickleonian, etc.) make more realistic characters?

Fellowship Friday!

Happy Halloween everyone! I have been noticeably absent from here lately and I apologize. We have been waiting for something huge for a very long time now and are just waiting on the call, I can’t say just yet what it is, God willing I will soon! My mind has been so focused on it that I have neglected what He has gifted me to do. I haven’t even written for myself. When I was looking for an article for today’s post I came across this. My heart sank, my ungrateful heart hurt. I have so many blessings in my life and I am so self focused on one thing that is yet to happen. Please excuse the writers minor spelling and grammar errors, it’s really the message that matters. God bless all of you have a safe, fun and God filled weekend and Halloween!

Prayer request

Hi everyone! I pray you are all having a wonderful God filled week! I am requesting prayers for my big brother (we’re calling him David). He is having a bad few days. Please pray for him. Thank you in advance. God bless you all and I pray you have a God filled rest of your week!

Abba,
We ask that you be with David Lord. Guide him according to your will. Lay Your healing hand upon his broken heart. Grant him strength in copping with the trials he is facing. Lord I ask that You grant him all that You are. We pray that Your will be done Lord. We pray this in Jesus name.

Fellowship Friday!

Hi everyone I am terribly sorry I missed last weeks fellowship Friday and almost missed this weeks. I don’t even have a good excuse. Simply put I forgot. My big brother (let’s just call him David because I don’t use real names) even reminded me last week, yet here we are. I apologize I am going to post two news stories in the links and will hopefully have something written tomorrow. Just an update on David, he is doing really well. He is still struggling a bit with what is going on, but he is really coping amazingly!!! I am so proud of him! He continues to thrive in school, like getting 95% and 100% on two of his three midterms!!! He is proof that when you put your mind to something despite your circumstances, you can not only do okay but kick serious butt!!! He continues to surprise me and make me proud!! I love that kid! Also despite what he has going on in his life he continues to have concern for me and never stops encouraging me to write, and tells me how talented I am, even though he is 10x the writer I am! I am sure he is reading this and saying he isn’t or to stop/shut up :-D . Most of the time he reads my blogs just minutes after I post them and that means so much to me, he really can’t know just how much! I love you David!! Your an amazing brother and best friend!! God bless you all and your families and have a safe God filled weekend!!

Fellowship Friday

Everyday, everywhere there are people performing random acts of kindness and wonderfulness. My challenge for you this week is just give a little bit. May the Lord bless each and everyone of you this weekend and have a safe God filled weekend. Ooohhhhh right I have a question for all of you! If I were to start a YouTube channel do you think I would have an audience or would it be another place to offer fellowship? Someone very close to me is really encouraging (pushing! Lol) me to do it but I am extremely sceptical about it. Please share your opinions on the idea of me doing a YouTube channel I really don’t know! Thank you in advance God bless you!
