Hello everyone, and happy weekend before Christmas! This time of year makes so grateful for what I have and for the birth of our Savior. Our Savior who was born in barn essentially. The was no room in the inn. As many of you know my heart and passion outside of my faith, is homelessness. This time of year the weather is getting quite cold not only at night but during the day. So many of the homeless people that would normally stay out doors rush to the shelters. There are some nights that there simply isn’t any room for them. Thus them being left in the cold. Though many people have a less than nice opinion of the homeless, they couldn’t be more wrong. In my experience they are quite kind and gentle. They would do what the can to help anyone, regardless who they are. This story is a prime example of how much they are just like you and I. I encourage you to read this beautiful article of a homeless man helping a stranded woman and her outstanding reaction! God bless all of you and if I don’t get another post in Merry Christmas!
Hello all! Happy Friday once again! This week’s story is one of giving. A homeless fellow was in a music store looking at guitars, he picked one and started playing it and singing. He asked how much the guitar was and was told it was $159. He said he would have to go out and beg in order to be able to afford it. A man who was in the store getting his daughters saxophone repaired, overheard the conversation said he would buy it for him. The homeless man was nearly brought to tears by a complete strangers generosity. So many times in the bible we see and hear about the joy music brings to God. I love music! And can’t imagine how God feels when He hears one of His children playing. Expecially if they are playing with a gift of generosity!! God bless all of you and have a safe God filled weekend!

Hello everyone! I pray you had a blessed week. I apologize, this is going to be a short post. This week’s post is a personal one. For those of you that don’t know, we have been homeless for the last almost three years. By the grace of God my mama let us stay with her for that time. Well that has changed! The Lord as found favor on us! As of tonight we will be laying our heads down in our own home!!!! Praise the Lord! I am baffled by His love and mercy! God bless all of you and may you have a safe God filled weekend!
Hello everyone! I am coming to you this friday on a very cold and snowy day! With Christmas fast approching I figured this story was very fitting. I am always awe struck when I see children playing and using their imagination. My neices and nephews absolutly love lego. The way they can create something out of tiny little blocks is wonderful! The pure joy, pride and satisfaction they have when they have finished building their creations is great! Sometimes I wonder what God thought about after each thing He created. What He was thinking and feelig as He was creating them. I bet He had the same joy, pride and satisfaction. I pray you all have a wonderful WARM and safe weekend! God bless you all!

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.
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.

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