Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8 NIV
In this fast-paced world, life can be difficult and pressures intense. As those pressures build, you may tend to focus so intently on your obligations that you lose sight, however temporarily, of your spiritual and emotional needs. (That's one reason a regular daily quiet time is so important-it offers a badly needed dose of perspective.)
Even when the demands of life are great, never forget that you have been entrusted with a profound responsibility: the responsibility of contributing to your family's emotional and spiritual well-being. It's a big job, but with God's help, you're up to the task.
Let the hugs begin!
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it,
whoever you are, you need it.

I was inspired to write this blog today;
One day a couple of month's back, since I've been with SparkPeople, I wrote the blog "Burning The Midnight Oil." I was behind and trying to catch up here at Spark, with my thank you replies and more. Two Dear Leaders, of one of my teams replied and told me don't let myself get, burned out and it's best to prioritize my time. If they read this blog today, they might remember telling me this. I took that message to heart, because I know I've been very busy lately, who isn't? right!
I,m behind once again, but now I've set a time limit for myself to give myself, at least 2 hours with SP in the morning, and at least 2 hours with SP in the evening This way I stay motivated It's better to be a little behind, than to be a lot burned out
Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.
God knows how busy your life is. As you move from task to task, remember to hold on to the golden cord that connects you to Him. He's always there regardless, but the cord reminds you that He is. It keeps the conversation going being the two of you, and His love, joy, and peace flowing to you throughout your day. God should be your first priority because it is through His wisdom and strength that you accomplish the others.
Have a blessed day my friends, and remember to prioritize your time.

A little talk with Jesus
How it smooths the rugged road;
How it seems to help me onward,
When I faint beneath my load.
When my heart is crushed with sorrow,
And mine eyes with tears are dim,
There's nought can yield me comfort
Like a little talk with Him.
I cannot live without Him,
Nor would I if I could;
He is my daily portion,
My medicine and food.
He's altogether lovely,
None can with Him compare-
The chief among ten thousand,
The fairest of the fair.
So I'll wait a little longer,
'Till His appointed time,
And glory in the Knowledge
That such a hope is mine.
Then in my Father's dwelling,
Where "many mansions" be,
I'll sweetly talk with Jesus,
And He shall talk with me.
Blessings my friends,

This is Mom...
Beautiful things in this life
Are manifold, 'tis true.
We count the stars by thousands,
The birds and flowers, too.
The sunsets and the dawnings,
Rare beauties far and near-
But all the wide world over
There's just one MOTHER DEAR.
My Mom, was in the hospital, yesterday all day. She went in early Thursday morning. She's unable to walk or move on her own. She did not have a stroke, Thank God. The hospital released her. She was living by herself at 83years old (she's still independent) But now she's at my sisters house, until she gets better. I will be spending all day tomorrow Saturday & Sunday with her.
I'll write when I return.
