To Care or Not to Care

imagesThat really is the question. To care or not to care about yourself. Right? Do you really care about yourself?

I haven’t cared for several years about my health, dating, or about much in general. I checked out on caring because of a trauma that happened to me a few years ago. Continue reading “To Care or Not to Care”

Thoughts of Perfection Message

Today’s Thoughts of Perfection – The Secret

Think thoughts of perfection. Illness cannot exist in a body that has harmonious thoughts. Know there is only perfection, and as you observe perfection you must summon that to you. Imperfect thoughts are the cause of all humanities ills, including disease, poverty, and unhappiness. When we think negative thoughts we are cutting ourselves off from our rightful heritage. Declare and intend, I think perfect thoughts. I see only perfection. I am perfection.

You Are Not Alone

“I Am Not Alone” by Kari Jobe, is one of my favorite songs. The lyrics speak deeply to my soul. If you have never heard it, go to You Tube. Here are some of the lyrics.

When I walk through deep water. I know you will be with me. When I’m standing in fire, I will not be overcome. Through the valley of the shadow, I will not fear.

I AM not alone. I AM not alone. You will go before me. You will never leave me. I AM not alone.

In the midst of deep sorry I see your light is breaking through. The dark of night will not over take me. I am pressing into you. Lord you will fight my every battle. And I will not fear!

I AM not alone. You will go before me. You will never leave me. I AM not alone.

You’re my strength. You’re my defender. You’re my refuge in the storm. Through my trials you have ALWAYS been faithful. You bring healing to my soul! I AM not alone. You will go before me. You will never leave me. I AM not alone.

How powerful are those words? VERY! I get goosebumps.

I recently posted something personal on my FB page regarding the trials I am facing right now.  One of my dear friend Harold in Florida, gently reminded me how many people love and support me and added “You are not alone!”  What he said touched me so deeply. I began to cry.  I AM not ALONE!  Neither are you.  If you are going through something, remember – YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You will get through this. ((hugs and kisses))

Love and light!

What is the MOST Important Lesson to Teach our Kids?

  • love 1cortAs a woman of age, who raised her kids all by herself from the time they were 2 & 4, I speak with words of wisdom and experience.

Children absorb so much when they are young. They are constantly looking to their parents and family members who are close to them, as their teachers. They are looking to these people to be the example for them to role model.

It is a huge, a really HUGE role – probably the most important role a parent gives their children. When you are young however, you don’t realize the importance you  play by your actions. Even when you don’t think they are looking, they are.

Some will say they want to teach their children the importance of picking a career, teaching them about money, teaching them values, teaching them to stand up for themselves, and teaching them about God. And ALL of these are important! However, as it states in 1 Corinthians 13 —-the greatest of these is LOVE!

I say this because I see so many marriages that aren’t happy, aren’t working, and two people who aren’t in love and are just together because of the kids. Don’t you think they know you aren’t happy aren’t in love, and basically just trying to get through each day! You are teaching them just that. Don’t you want them to see both mother and dad being happy and in love? Show them what love truly can be like.

I know it’s a double edge sword too. Never make this decision lightly. I certainly don’t have all the answers, but what I am saying is this is important. I married early on in my life for the wrong reasons, and it didn’t work because of that. Huge mistake, except for the two wonderful children I have. BUT, I wanted to have them to see me happy rather than not happy. I was happy alone knowing my soul mate would arrive one day. And I loved them with all my happiness everyday as well.

THE MOST important decision anyone makes in life is WHO THEY CHOOSE TO MARRY! Right? Teach them the importance of taking time to figure out the values, beliefs and characteristics of each person they date. Never settle for someone who doesn’t value them. Relationships should be easy like in baseball, pitch and catch. Will you have disagreements? Absolutely!  Can you agree to disagree? Absolutely! Relationships are about love and respect.  Set the example for your children – BE the example for them.  BE IN LOVE with your partner in life.

Love and light!
