starting over

Sunday, July 27, 2014



Letting go is like watching pages of a book fly away and transform to something new!



Trying to stay here in OK when I know my family needs me is wrong and makes things harder. I'm so glad I know what I want to do, and I'm doing it this week!




Packing and moving is getting rid of all of the physical junk.....



Starting over in a new state, a new home, with new family members is not what I thought GOD had called me to.
But at this time, I KNOW I'm suppose to help my children, though grown, to re-establish a home close to one of our family members, my 12 year old granddaughter, Adie. She needs her dad and he needs us to make this a quick move!
It may be that her mom takes her to anther state. But she will never forget that we gave up everything to help her find balance in her life.
My son is determined that she will have a mom and a dad!
I'm happy for him and proud, too.
My daughter hated Oklahoma weather, and I'm very allergic to all the weather here. As you know, I have developed skin responses to my allergies so I must move, too. If I ever had a question about leaving my sisters, I know now!
My daughter is also pregnant with hr 2nd high risk pregnancy so she went 1st to set up a home for all of us, while she can still travel.
I will be leaving on the 30th of this month.
Hard? yes. Easy? yes!! I know God is in this middle of this and working to save my entire family.
Thank you for your prayers as I have to pack today. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon If it fits in my car, it goes! My son will bring the rest! Storage units will be used in the mean time.
LOVE you my spark friends. Hopefully, I'll be able to stay in touch even as I travel. I don't expect any down time.

COURAGE

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose. Tom Krause quotes

I THOUGHT ONCE THAT I POSSESED COURAGE.
It wasn't courage, it was self confidence.
I tried ALWAYS knowing I would win! Maybe come in 2nd, but always be in the running with the best. When I did come in 2nd, I would try until I won 1st place!
Now when I try, it's COURAGE.

THIS IS WHERE 'HOPE' COMES IN~

I think this can be a smart way to live:


Do one thing every day that scares you. ~Anonymous

beautiful 40 years ago



beautiful now....



YES, I've BEEN THINKING OF THE PEOPLE WHO INFLUENCED MY LIFE. MY NEW BACKGROUND SHOW RED SKELETON. HE WAS AN AWESOME PERFORMER AND A CHRISTIAN.
Ann Margaret's husband asked her to step down from the lime ight. He reads scripture on PTL channel.

I had high goals, once.
weird to some, but I did learn some of what I felt was capable of when I received training in Pantomime from the best~!

I lost the desire to succeed when suffering through PTSD. Now I want to set achievable goals. This is a new idea to look at what inspired me in the beginning!

    We influence everyone we come in contact with. What we need to evaluate is HOW we influence them, for good or bad.
Of course you have been a godly influence and I appreciate you! emoticon

    Give yourself permission to dream again and then give God permission to bring your dreams into existence. With Him all things are possible and it's never to late to dream! Dream big 'cause you serve a BIG God!

HOPE

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Sometimes we act like HOPE isn't important.
Proverbs 13: 12

Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life.



It is very important! Faith, hope, love these 3 ..... But the greatest of these is love!

Love is the reason I have hope for today~ I love my GOD my family, my friends.


I have hope that tomorrow will be great. I will sell all that must be sold and arrive in LA on the appointed day. New International Version
Col 1:5
the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel

Even though there are challenges, God is still in control.

We must reach for the heavens, else what are they for? And if we fail, we will fail amidst the stars listed in, Hebrews, who fought the fight of faith!

Let's encourage one another, when they over eat, don't exercise, or seem to have a difficult time finding the right balance.

    yes I do believe this!. But Christians still have bad karma & situtations, but Christ gave us the strength to suvive it & so much more, so we can carry on. Hope is the light house in everyone's darkness.
