 We begin with chapters one and two and a blog hop , share your thoughts of chapters one & two & link up with

I love this taken from page 23221520875392473338_HP55pSuJ_b[1]

how true this is, we will always face things that are out of our control but we have the choice whether or not we let it get us out of control,we had no control, over the tornado that came through and even a year later of still repairing from the damage we still praise him for putting that hedge of protection around us, there's still  a lot of ugly all around but when my eyes are on the vision I see beauty God has for my home

I love Lysa’s story about the missing towels in chapter one,it reminds us how easy it is to become unglued, mind you I don’t get  down right mad but I can get irritated lol! my minds goes back to  a particular night when I was having a Christmas open house for family & friends, one tree in the living room decided to fall over, humm no problem I can stand it back up & fluff it out, I proceed to set out my buffet of goodies then  bam! I hear a crash, there it is lying on the floor again this time breaking some of the ornaments,deep breath , pick it up rearrange things,walk through the house to give myself approval of each room lol then bam! now that 3rd time just tore it! it was over! I was not doing it anymore, I told  hubby leave it where it lays! I’m done! I proceed to call everyone to tell them the tour of lights has been canceled & do you know they all came anyway!!! I could of smacked them all with love of course lol! they proceed to ask why’s all the lights off I say because there is no party going on here then they enter the living room & ask why’s the tree in floor, yea at this point I feel myself coming unglued lol they’re all laughing going through the house ohhhing & awwwwing eating their Christmas goodies & all i can think about is that mess in the middle of my living room floor, before it was over with they had me laughing too for you see if you’re plugged into Jesus then when you come unglued you can have peace in your madness

80501912058795950_a6vKz4iq_c[1] A  dear friend asked for prayer for  a  64 year old family member who fell which caused a head injury, the Doctors say he may not pull through, but my friend & I shared  what a mighty God we serve & how he has the last word in any situation that we face in this life.This world in which we live in can sometimes throw us a punch harder than we can take at times, tears, heart aches & uncertainty  can make it hard to be joyful but  through prayer, faith & peace, no matter what this life throws at us we can be joyful in our God

Psalms 29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

please lift up Brent Huffines in your prayers

Acts 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if happily they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

you can see & feel God all around you just by embracing his wonder,when I wake early I love to watch for the sun to rise, with darkness all around, the birds begin to sing, could it be they know that darkness last only for a while & a brighter day is just around the corner?

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me


I encourage you today, not to take the day you've been given lightly, embrace today, soak in God's goodness & in all things give him praise!

Thou art worthy O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power for thou hast created all things and for thy pleasure they are and were created (Rev.4:11)

when I read that I thought of (Gen:1:23-24) And the evening and the morning,were the fifth day, and God said  let the Earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth after his kind and it  was so


have you been to the Zoo lately & really took a close look at God’s amazing creation,here’s a little example of God’s beauty we encountered on a Zoo trip with the grandkids

even the tiny things are breath taking

The quality or state of being kind,an instance of kind behavior  is what the dictionary describes kindness ,what does the word say about kindness

Psalms 117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

mercy,goodness,faithfulness are Hebrew meanings for the word kindness

how wonderful to know with sweet assurance that his mercy is great towards us, his goodness is great towards, us,his faithfulness is great towards us

Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?


can you relate to that statement? are you living in such a way that when someone tells falsehoods on you that the one they’re telling it to doesn’t believe it because they know the life you lead

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith

there’s a lot of spiritual food to digest here, let the meaning of this scripture take root in your spirit & feed your soul,to partake of Gods word is good

LOVE: man’s devotion to God, the feeling of kindness towards others

JOY: a feeling of great happiness, to rejoice

PEACE: freedom from quarrels or disagreements, public security,free from strife

LONGSUFFERING: patiently enduring wrongs or difficulties

GENTLENESS: considerate

considerate means having regards for the needs or feelings for others

GOODNESS: the state of being good

FAITH: a confident belief in the truth,value or trust worthiness of a person

when we live our lives in such a way that others see Jesus in us,then we are able to show kindness, mercy and love ,Peter says it best in first Peter 3:16

1 Peter 3:16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
