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!

Fellowship Friday!!

This is such a beautiful story. This story shows us that no matter what God’s Will will be done. Can you imagine a doctor saying your child has a 1% chance of surviving? I honestly don’t know that I would put my faith in God in that situation. I would be very earthly bound my thoughts and reactions. I wouldn’t get an abortion of course, that is never an option. I feel the same way this woman did, that if it was God’s will for the child’s not to survive that’s what would happen. I just love the never ending Grace of our Lord and Savior. He really steps up and shows us that through Him all things are possible! I find the medical world very confusing and conflicting at times, they never seem to factor God into any equation. It’s amazing how God chooses people to exist, against all odds. Take me for example, my mother was on birth control when I was conceived. God though knowing all, decided that He wanted me here regardless, and tada!! Here I am! Lol. Then again with my youngest brother, my mother was told that she nor her child would survive if she ever got pregnant again. The doctors told her to abort him the first time she almost lost him and many times after, but she put it in God’s capable hands! They said if she carried him to term he wouldn’t live long after birth. Well they were wrong about that as well, he is a healthy man. Even though there were many issues and he wasn’t a very healthy baby, God chose for him to be on this earth for a reason. There is a scripture says that God has counted every hair on our head in Matthew 10:13. That is so true and the story just proves that God intended for each and everyone of us to be here and for us to live the life that we have, the life He has chosen for us. I commend this woman’s strength and courage and I thank the Lord for His never-ending blessings. God bless you have a safe happy God filled weekend! For this story and many more click here!

Fellowship Friday!!

This weeks fellowship Friday is going to be a personal one. I was in my local grocery store tonight at 10:50pm just moments before they were set to close. As usual the lineup was really long, and I was doing my typical browsing through the rag mags. When an older woman said she was concerned about the lineups, because she only had three items, and didn’t want to miss her bus. We talked for a couple of minutes when I noticed a small wooden cross around her neck kind of like mine, and a shirt with a cross on it that said Grace. That got me curious and that’s when I noticed that she had the same bracelet I have and two that I’ve been looking for. The one we had in common was the W.W.J.D. one. The other two however are the two that I’ve been looking for, for quite some time. My local Christian store doesn’t sell them and I’m having trouble finding them online as well. The first being F.R.O.G. fully rely on God and the second one was P.U.S.H. pray until something happens. I commented on the bracelets and showed her that I too had the W.W.J.D. one. She looked at me with a kind of surprised expression and said “oh you’re a Christian too”? I said “yes ma’am”! We shared a few moments a fellowship before they called her over to an empty register. We ended our meeting with a God bless you and have a great night. It’s so strange that God brings people into our lives just randomly. I definitely didn’t expect Him to intervene while grumpy and irritated at my own procrastination. He knew better as always and a met a fellow sisters in Christ, thus changing my mood entirely. It’s just another example of God putting people before you at times when you don’t even know that you need them. Mind you I’m one of those people who others feel comfortable around or something, because often when I am out people talk to me. Sometimes it’s great and I get to share a great message with them, other times it’s a little awkward (I’m not going to lie). So at the end of the night tonight I can look at it as, yes, I was grumpy and not wanting to be at the store that late, but God seen fit to put somebody before me to make me smile and to  remind me of His never ending love! So my question for you this week is have you had any moments of random fellowship with a complete stranger? If not I encourage you to go out and have that conversation it’s not as scary as you might think. I am not saying it has to be a Christian conversation, just any conversation. If it turns to God all the better! As Christ said where two or more are gathered so am I. On that note, God bless you and have a safe and God filled weekend.

Fellowship Friday!

This is such a beautiful story of giving! I think the snow froze all of my brains!!!! I was going to write a whole piece about this, but like I said frozen! I love finding stories like this! It is way to easy to find negative stories, but it’s when you can see God at work that can change your whole day, or even your life! It is actually hard to find stories of good news, it’s quite saddening really. They are out there though, you just have to dig a little. This is why I started this fellowship Friday blog! To bring the light of God through all of the darkness we see around us all the time. Find this story and many more right here.
Just a quick prayer update and request. My brother is doing okay I suppose he is really focusing on school and everything he is doing. He has an amazing support system of friends and is starting to really utilize his family more! This may be a tough week for him. He and his wife are separated and Monday is their wedding anniversary. Please pray that he holds onto his strength and stays focused on the tasks he has at hand right now. Thank you very much. God bless all of you and your families, have a safe and God filled weekend!

Pay it forward! I encourage all of you to find a way this week to do a random act of kindness! It doesn’t matter what you do, you don’t have to give anyone money or anything materialistic. Perhaps a simple smile or hello to someone you seems to need it! God bless you all!

Fellowship Friday!!!

It is Friday already! It seems like this week has just flown by. It was quite productive for me. I think….. well maybe not super productive, but I did get to the eye doctor and ordered my new glasses. Both pairs :-/ reading and distance. As it turns out I am an old lady now. I am mostly ok with it, mostly! Lol I pray you all had a wonderful God filled week and that you have a very safe and blessed weekend! God bless!

Hello!

Hi everyone!
I just want to extend a very big thank you  to everyone that’s been praying for my family and myself. We all appreciate it so so very much. Though this past two weeks has been extremely challenging, first my brother, then we lost my aunt, the same day we lost a friend at my others aunts church, then this Monday morning losing another aunt, we have still been able to see that God has shone His light of grace upon us. It is amazing how everything can be so dark and sad, yet God brings His loving light to break through the clouds! I am not going to lie it wasn’t so easy to see, the clouds were to thick, but with help and prayers from all of you, we were able to see His light once again. What could we have taken away from so much loss that would make us smile and see His light? Just one word, family. So often we lose sight of how much of a blessing family is. Yes sometimes they are a pain in the backside, but you only get one family. You can’t exchange them or change them. In the same way they can’t do the same for you. I am not just talking about blood relatives, they’re included but not the only ones. There is also the family we have in Christ! We are all brothers and sisters! I am so blessed for the family I have that includes all of you as well! Despite feeling sad and the pains of loss we can see now more than ever that we are all extremely blessed. Have a beautiful God filled day!
