Favorite things

Reading The New York Times.
Catching up on blogs.       
Walking on the treadmill.
Talking with a good friend.
Reading the Bible.



Feeding 5000 off five loaves and two fishes requires great faith. Trusting God to supply your needs is hard.  Everything that has worth requires faith.  Lord, it is my prayer that I have the faith necessary to do Your will.
Have a great day,

mustard seed

I used to look down on the mustard seed, but I realized how much wrong that was. The meekness of a mustard seed doesn't define it, it merely describes its size. God defines, people describe.  Reading His word is giving me something I've been lacking.  The Love of Christ leaves me in tears.

Friday fun

two week vacation.
Where do you go?
Angkor Wat
Costa Rica

My pick would be Seville or Texas.

Faith filled Fridays

As I'm reading Matthew 11:28, my heart feels unburdened.  It is so good to know that despite it all, "He will give me rest."  
It is a great comfort to know how much He loves me.

The Greatest Man
Came to save a fallen world
That through Him
Life everlasting
Could be found.

God Bless yall.

Faith is the best to have and the hardest thing to keep. As a friend told me keep fighting and keep the faith.  I'm passing this wise advice. 
Have a blessed day!

My heart

This is on my heart:
I am a Christian. One that is broken and flawed.  The only true happiness I can have is oneness with Him.  I've been saved, and this fact is the one that gives me pure tears of joy.  I can't mourn what I don't have.  Waiting is the hardest thing to do.  The fact is I never thought alot of things, and they have come true.  One of the hardest things of Christianity is obedience.  Waiting is obedience.  God's timing is perfect, mine, not so much.  I'm not a Bible scholar.  I have to remind myself that reading the Bible is not a chore, but a pleasure.  I don't know what easy is.  And that is a blessing.  I complain about going to doctors, but I want to look at it as a blessing.  I don't want to look at life as a chore.  Life is a blessing.

God Bless,

Living and loving

What I've learned lately:

I am loved beyond comprehension.
The depths to which God amazes me leaves me awestruck.
Being still equals contentment.
Not thinking too much for me takes effort, but it's worth it.
I'm learning to prioritize.
I am learning to smile.

What I'm loving lately:
Sweets- any and all kinds
Being at home
Candy Crush
Two Dots

Verse for the day
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 3:14

Have a blessed day,

Fun in the sun

I just got back from a long weekend trip to the Sunshine State.
Here are some thoughts:
That Florida sun is strong!
The food is good.
Children are very funny.
There is nothing like a good pool to relax
I got to feel like a child.

God Bless,

Dear friends,
What's on my heart is the Serenity Prayer.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.  My heart is bitter and angry and it's because I haven't adhered to this simple prayer.  The most simple prayers are sometimes the hardest to follow.
James 1:19:20

"Dear brothers and sisters, take note of this:  Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,"

What a verse I need to follow.
Have a blessed day!

It is never to late to learn.  You never know what someone is going through.  I have been taught today.  Or just merely reminded, but I am so grateful!  If you're going through something today, I'm thinking about you and praying for you!  And if you would, do the same for me.
Sometimes we need gentle reminders!
Have a great day and be blessed!

My younger self

I just finished listening to "Dear Younger Me" by MercyMe, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.  What would I tell a younger me?

1.  Enjoy the struggle-Those OT and PT lessons.  If you'd of asked me as a child, I disdained those days.  Now I miss them.  Thinking back on them now, there was joy in those days.  I enjoyed it.  Putting the square peg in the round hole makes me laugh as I remember my frustration mounting enough to jam that peg in a place it didn't belong.

2.  You will never get those years back, but alot of memories.
3.  Say thank you!  Thank you to my parents, family, and every medical professional I've had the pleasure of acquainting.

4.  Your life is not your own.  Once you learn this, every part of you will change.  The selfish part of me would have led you to believe this.  People are the biggest investment you will ever make.  Make it the best one.

5.  Don't fight God.  You will lose every time.  It's the gamble that never pays a dividend.  He loves you more than you ever can or will.

Make mistakes, just not ones that you can't repair.
Que Dios te bendiga.

Climbing a mountain

I climbed a mountain, really!  And I conquered the mountain in my head.  It feels so good!  I realized how much doubt has consumed me.  I realized how much I have missed childlike faith.  In my mind as I was climbing, I remembered how I relished a challenge.  My heart and soul needed a change of scenery.
Just because we get older doesn't me sometimes we can be a child.

Some things about my life as a Christian

I read Kelly's Korner's blog this morning, and it got me thinking.

These are some things about me and my time as a follower of Christ.

I am a Jew by birth, a Christian by the Grace of God.
Acceptance is becoming more bearable with Jesus.
I was singing "Let it Rain" by Michael W. Smith, when I accepted Christ.
Your answers to questions aren't all answered once you believe.
In fact, I may have more, but if He wants me to know, He'll let me know.
Being a Christian is a calling for me.
There are things, I don't understand, and that's okay.
I never really understood when the pastor told me it's the most important decision you will make, and the best one.  It's the one decision I've made that influences every decision I make since that day.

Heartfelt confessions

Trusting God's timing can be frustrating and the mustard seed of faith feels like it gets smaller.

I miss being an optimist.  I seem to see life in a very realistic way these days, and I want to see the glass half-full more times than I see it half empty.

I disdain writing this for fear of what you might think of me.  And yet I'm not supposed to care.

I really dislike being so open for the world to know, but I need to do it.

I liked at posting quotes of others at one point, but I want to make my own, plus there is a thing called laziness.

I'm scared.  Change and I don't get along.  Yet, it's a constant in my life.

John 16:33


Gratitude Mondays

It's Monday!  Another new week!  A new week to make a difference.
I'm grateful:
For wet green grass between my feet
A cool morning breeze
A calming shower
A spritz of perfume
Good praise and worship music

God Bless,

In this moment, I'm free.  God loved me too much, that I shouldn't love myself.  In this moment, I will say I love me out loud.
Happy Friday!

Birthdays, beignets and blessings

This birthday weekend was a learning experience.  It's not a good birthday if you can't learn, right?  I enjoyed so much good food, it was great!  Loved eating at Page's Okra Grill in Mount Pleasant.  The mahi!  Highly recommend.  Had beignets at Angel Oak restaurant along with a bacon, egg and cheese croissant.  And a great mimosa.  Loved it!
The blessings were being alive to see another birthday, and the many birthday wishes.  Thank you very much!  Happy Birthday to anyone celebrating today!
God Bless and keep you,
