Hello everyone! Happy friday! I just can’t get enough of stories about people paying it forward. Especially when it is teens. These 6 teens got up early one morning to shovel about 50 driveways and sidewalks just to do something nice for the community. They refused to take money for it. All they did was leave flyers on the doors saying ‘you got served’, with an image of three crosses. This is such a great way of evangelizing without being forceful and in someone’s face. Have you had a moment of evangelism this week? If not I encourage you to do so, as I will join you in achieving a moment of evangelism. God bless all of you and may the Lord bless all of you in having a safe and fun weekend! You can find the story and many man more here.
Please please please pray for my family!!!! My brother Jeff aka David has passed away. Please God help us! I don’t know what to do! Our hearts are broken, we have lost a part ourselves. Please pray for us please!!!! We feel so lost. Please pray for strength! ! ! ! !
Hey everyone! Happy friday! It has been a great week for us! We got awesome news about my mom’s health, reunited with old friends as well as found fellowship with them! It was great! We have known them for five or so years and had no idea. We’d made Christian comments to one another but never came right out with it. Until yesterday! It’s a wonderful feeling! As many of you know I have suffered with PTSD for the last three years. This week’s story is about a US Marine who, after leaving the service due to a series of traumatic brain injuries, found himself suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Jared Heine had a companion while in Afghanistan, Spike a bomb sniffing combat dog. When Jared returned to the United States he was separated from Spike. Jareds mother noticed that when he would talk about Spike his mood would lift. Seeing a way to help Jared, his mother worked through Facebook and the military to try to reunite the two. Spikes current owner agreed to meet. At the time Spike was working with the Virginia capitol police K-9 unit. Paired with officer Laura Taylor, when she seen the reunion she decided that the friends belonged together. I love that society is realizing the severity and seriousness that is PTSD. There are now numerous organizations in North America that are working to help servicemen and women in coping with this disorder. I just love this story! The bonds that people make with animals is glorious! My mama is also a great testament to the power of this bond. My mama has a fear of going outdoors, and had almost given up on herself before she had gotten her dog. It was night and day! She came out of her shell and doesn’t hide herself away very much anymore. I pray you all have a safe and fun weekend! God bless all of you!

Hello all! Happy Friday once again! I pray you all have had a wonderful week! This is last week’s post I completely forgot about it. Better late then never? Lol This post is just for giggles 😂 God bless all of you!
Hello all! Happy Friday! Well in my case this week it’s not very happy, quite grumpy actually, I have been very sick all week. Tis flu season! On that note my brain is complete mush! So I apologize for the lame post. This local pizza parlor got its patrons to donate a dollar, in order to give a slice of pizza to a homeless person. Here is the whole post! May you all have a safe, God filled weekend! God bless!
Every time I type the title of this blog I can’t help but hear that annoying “friday ” song in my head. Lol
Aaannnyyyy waaays! Hello again and happy friday! I pray you all had a wonderful week, filled with God’s loving surprises! Also that all of you and your families, have been kept safe if affected by post tropical storm Arthur. I am sure most of you are aware of the terrible storm that hit the east coast of North America. In Canada the provinces that got hit the hardest were New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. “In New Brunswick, 95,110 customers remained without power as of Sunday evening. Nova Scotia Power reported 192 outages that affected 80,060 customers, while nearly 5,000 remained in the dark in Prince Edward Island.” Courtesy of ctv.ca. I am a fan of Jeeps so naturally I was drawn to this story. ;) Well not really but still, I do love my Jeeps! The storm made it nearly impossible for people to travel on the snow piled roads, there was a no travel advisory instated actually. This fellowship post starts with Jeeps, and the kind hearts of one club, I am sure most cities have Jeep clubs. If your not familiar with Jeep people here is a little insight. Typically they are about 4x4ing and if anything happens they all join in to help. They are very united and have huge hearts. Well, this local club took it upon themselves to help the staff of a local hospital get to work! Normally I would not condone people driving in such dangerous conditions. However I know from personal experience that Jeeps really thrive in such conditions, they are 4×4’s after all. When asked why they had done it, one of the men answered, ” It’s nice to help out in some small way to get our doctors and nurses where they need to be,” he said. “It really feels good at the end of the day.”. I didn’t even think about them (hospital staff that is) when I was praying for the people affected by the storm. Regardless what is going on, certain people have to brave the elements. They really have no choice! Hospitals need doctors, nurses, surgeons. Custodians and phone staff even, people don’t stop being sick because of the weather. I often think about fire, police and ambulance responders in these terrible blizzards, well in any kind of natural disaster. Though the others not as much, of course I can only speak for myself. This club did though, and because of them these doctors and nurses have been getting to the hospital safely, a lot safer if they’d attempted the drive themselves. In any type of situation we should help those who can’t or shouldn’t be doing things themselves. Be a snow angel, shovel a widow, single mother or an elderly neighbors walk (as so gracefully said by my Bubby). Help someone who appears to be struggling to get across the street. Anything really! The opportunities are endless, and they are opportunities not chores. Anytime you can help someone it’s an opportunity. At the end of the day you’ll have done something for someone who otherwise my not have been able to do it on their own, or worse they may even get hurt trying. On this subject and many others I have written about, I try to practice what I preach. Just a quick and funny side story. I tried helping an elderly woman cross the street once, because it was crazy icy, and she got so upset with me because as she put it “she wasn’t feeble or weak” lol. Don’t let that deter you, she was just someone who wanted to do it on her own :). Most all of the people I’ve helped over the years have been very grateful. My favorite way of doing it though, is shoveling a neighbors walk or mowing their lawn when they are out or otherwise occupied in their homes. That way when they see it, they are happy and grateful, but have no idea who had done it. Even for the nasty neighbors, you know the ones, we’ve all had them. Especially them, it shows them kindness they may not get on a regular basis! In light of all the crazy storms and snow a lot of us are getting, I ask and pray that all of you are exceptionally careful and safe this weekend! If you are on the east coast at all or have been hit by any kind of snow or bad weather, I pray that you are kept safe. If you don’t have to travel please don’t! With that have a fun, safe and God filled weekend! God bless each and everyone of you and your families! Also please pray for those affected by this ugly storm. You can see this story and many more stories of good news here.
I can’t possibly cry anymore tonight!! I think I posted the first part of this video, but if not I will now! The follow up video is absolutely overfilled my heart with joy (and a whole lot of tears!!!) God bless all of you!
PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!
Hello all! Happy Friday! I pray you all had an extremely blessed week. Once again my heart and fellowship falls with the homeless. Please watch this video, I could have filled 3 buckets with the tears I cried watching it. Please ignore the last segment of the video. Also if in your travels this weekend you come across a homeless person please offer a little fellowship to them, it doesn’t have to be monetary, even just a hello or God bless you :-)…. I pray you all have a safe, fun God filled weekend! God bless you all!
Top 10 – Helping the homeless – Part 2: http://youtu.be/kR22HYc5jpg
Hello all! I pray you’ve all had a blessed week! The other night I was watching a tv show called brain games on national geographic channel. I actually really enjoy this program. It challenges you and changes your perspective on different things. The episode I am going to talk about was focused on compassion. They did a few “tests” and the outcome for a good majority of them was when someone showed compassion towards someone else, they in turn showed compassion towards another person. Even if the third person did something nasty to the second. As long as the first person had compassion for the second the nasty person still received compassion. I just love this!! It’s so easy to walk around angry and think the world owes you something, but to stop and show compassion towards another person can create a beautiful butterfly effect!!! I pray you all have a wonderful safe God filled weekend!!! Remember, show a little compassion! You never know what it may lead to! God bless!!!
We just had the most amazing night! We had Gorbachoff, Spiff and Pug over for dinner tonight and it was just awesome! The Lord has found such favor in us, far more than I could ever imagine! It was one of those nights you never want to end! I couldn’t have asked for more. I am not just talking about tonight. I am talking about my life! Everything has turned around, it’s back to how it was before the accident. No…..better! I have my family back! My prayers have been answered ten fold! I love my brothers and now I have both of them!!! There is one person who I pray would want to share in this joy with, but I am not greedy and when this person is ready they will come to me. Until then I will continue to pray for them and that they get past whatever it is that is keeping them from me. My little Pug was so sweet! Tonight it was as if she couldn’t get enough of me. She melts my heart that little girl! Another answered prayer, her and I baked my special cake (she learned the secret ingredient). I am so happy and blessed I can’t stop thanking The Lord for all He is doing for me! Oh!!!! Also I got my feet tattoo’s finally!!!!! I have always tried to live by Psalm 119:133 “Guide my footsteps according to YOUR Word”. It’s in a pretty script across both feet! I absolutely love it! Unfortunately I won’t be posting any pictures of them, just my personal online rules. Darn those rules!! Lol sorry this ran on so long I just wanted to share the blessings and love of The Lord with all of you, my brothers and sisters of Christ! Ooohhh!!!! Also we got the best gift tonight from Pug! She is 4 and she drew a picture and wrote her alphabet! God bless all of you my dear brothers and sisters!
