Birthday Blessed :)

Sunday, April 18, 2010

I was blessed by knowing you all, my sparkfamily, and also my facebook family. When I needed encouragement you all are there and yesterday I needed it, because my own siblings, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, etc. did not even call me to say Happy Birthday. Yes I was feeling sad, but my daughter & my honey remembered and they are more important then the others. Ok I'm through crying about that emoticon
I did have a wonderful dinner, and good company with Honey, daughter and grandson. I ate Calamari, tomato mozz salad, salmon with mashed potato and corn on the cobb. I did opt out of dessert so maybe today I will eat a cupcake.
Again I want to say thank you Sparkfamily for the birthday wishes, comments and goodies I appreciate everyone of them and you emoticon Be blessed :)

    It seems that these days, nieces, nephews, extended family and such aren't as into birthday as we ourselves are.

You had a great day and I'm happy that you did.

A small cupcake is allowed, if you track it ;)

Be Blessed friends :)

Tomorrow is my 45th Birthday emoticon I do want to thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes, sparkgoodies, and comments :) I feel very blessed to know you all.
These past 45 years have been so challenging and although many events have been 'life changing' and painful I know each one was planned and GOD was a part of each. I know that He wanted me to endure so that I would have knowledge and growth, I am thankful that He has answered each cry of help I made and now can help others when I am needed.
My only regret, is that I did not fully know or trust our GOD before and now I wish I had. Just think how different things would have been, ok no regrets, just THANKFULNESS for the now.
"I love you LORD and I thank you for putting me where I needed to be. Please give my mom a special hug for giving me this wonderful day, my Birthday, and LORD bless my friends, I love them each and every one." Amen

    No regrets, is right. Going through the things you did only make you stronger now and you realize how much God gave for us. Now you can help others in similar situations because you know where they are coming from and you can show them it is possible to change.

SO glad you had a wonderful Birthday!!! emoticon

    Happy Birthday, Spark Friend! It sounds like your faith in God has given you the serenity to accept life's challenges and live in peace. May God richly bless you in the coming year! BTW, I regularly bring my mother flowers on my birthday, just to let her know I love her and appreciate her being my mom. emoticon

I started reading the book "Body Clutter, Love your body, Love yourself" last week and there is some really good info in there. I really like this comment and I even highlighted it in my book.
"When you begin to understand, that paying attention to your fuel and movement isn't just so that you can wear a smaller size, but it is critical for doing more of the work that GOD had called us to do."

I read in another book/blog/article somewhere that had this comment and I've used it and thought it, and it has really brought me peace of mind. When things start to feel stressful is when it 'was used'.
"For this I have JESUS"
JESUS who gave His life for me, and who will get me through more. Thank you Lord emoticon

    The Flylady site is wonderful. It has helped me in so many different ways. Not only the body clutter but the home clutter. Trying to size down in all ways for retirement. Keep up the good work and have a fantastic Sunday.

Praise The Lord! for His endless mercies

About today. . . .

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

The wind is blowing very hard, I can hear it blow through the branches of the tress outside. The dark clouds of a storm rolling in from the northwest making it dark before the evening hour.
I'm so glad for my home emoticon and all the comforts it gives. Now if I could only have those same feelings in my heart. I know GOD is there and I should call on him but sometimes I get stubborn and think I can do things myself.
Tomorrow is a new day and I look forward to a new month where I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

    Just keep calling out to Him and read His Word. Memorizing scripture has really helped me. And like Leona said, join us on the Spring Sharing Corner..the devotions are wonderful as are the discussions. James 4:8 "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."

    His strength and grace are new every morning. The devotions on the team page have sure helped me keep the focus. They are in the Spring Sharing Corner.

    Don't get stubborn where God is concerned. Let Him help you. That's the only way.
You do know that..just a reminder. God knows our hearts. Nothing is hidden from Him. Thanks for reminding me to remind myself of that fact.
