God Saves Me Yet Again


Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Welp my dad give me my moms promise ring for my birthday monday. He got it for her when she was 15. they got married when she was 16 and had me when she was 17. , they were married 31 yrs. She woulda turned 50 this yr
She passed away 2.5 yrs ago today so having this material item of hers means more to me than anything in this world that I own.
Including my home.

I know God doesn't like me being materialistic and holding value in material items but this was my moms and I'm holding value to it. I really think God can make an exception for this.

This was the very first time in my life Dad has willingly given me anything. The first time he was nice on purpose.
It really shows me that God is watching me and he cares.
He sees that I have a loving heart by allowing my dad in my life eventhou he hurt me in past and he rewarded me by giving me something of my moms that ive wanted for oh so long.

He sees my hurt. two days ago I was hurting so much I seriously thought about taking a bottle of pills and giving up becuase I felt so alone and beat down.
I'm not alone and I'm going to beat this.
One step at a time. One day at a time.
Because I know there are people who care even when in my mind it feels like no one does.
Thank you God for saving me. So many times.

    My friend, that's the only way to live life, one day at the time. And during the days we want to die, one hour at the time. I am glad you have that beautiful gift and God bless you. emoticon

    As the Footprints poem states, sometimes He carries us. And I don't think you are being materialistic about your Mom's ring. It's the feelings and the memories that you are attached to and there's nothing wrong with that. My father passed 27 years ago. He's my best friend. My mother had given me a sky blue sweater that he wore all the time to give to my (then) husband. I couldn't do it and kept it for myself. Many times, especially when I was down, I would put the sweater on and feel my father's love. Can't put a price tag on that.

    God promises to give us the desires of our hearts when we put Him first. It isn't that He doesn't want us to have nice things, He just wants to be more important to us than our things.

    That is awesome that your dad gave that too you. The value you put into it is sentimental and I don't think God frowns on that as much as they other types of value placed in/on things. You can never replace your mom but having something that was once her's is priceless, as our your memories. Hugs and keep on pushing, you are worth it.

    I agree God is always there, even when we are feeling alone - he is close by!

So pleased that you've got the ring and hopefully will develop a better relationship with your dad.
Its not about being materialistic, its about love, the love your dad had for your mum and the love you have for your mum and I'm sure she had for you both.

You are wonderful! God knows it! So glad he helped you to not take the pills two days ago.

love and hugs to you
