Thanksgiving...

I know I have not posted much and I will try to post more weekly.
 I have been sick and all sorts of things going on... lol
so no worries I have a few post I am working on and cannot wait to get done.
Hope you all have a wonderful turkey day and Remember this day is to praise the Lord
and give thanks for all that you have been given.
The Lord love each of us and wants to hear our praises and worship...
So when you are sitting at home watching TV, or playing a game
or whatever it may be that you are doing on this day give
 thanks for what you have been blessed with, a LIFE.
To be able to get up no matter how bad your life may be
God will grant you an eternity in heaven if you just believe...!!

What are you Thankful for...?


 God created the Heavens and the Earth, you and me...
 I am Thankful that God also gave his beloved son
 Jesus to died on Calvary, for me and you all!
 I can honestly say that I will enter the kingdom of Heaven
 and I am thankful for the free gift he gave me and hope to be a blessing in others too...
 
I had my down but I want to keep looking up knowing that the Lord will always
be with me no matter the trials to come
and I am just thankful for those few people in my life
 that the Lord sent to help me grow and to be a better myself.
To be able to forgive those who have hurt me r stepped on me,
to cherish what I have been given and to most of all
 to spread the words and to pray for those who lost there way or never knew it..
May the Lord bless you all today and every day!!

Life . . .

Life,
It throws so many curve balls and we have to try and dodge them,
because sometimes when they may hit,
And when they hit they can hit hard and tend to knock us off your feet.
Though we as Christians
seem to have to dodge a little more than most.
The devil will attack us at any time,
no matter our standings in life.
We could be someone small like a parent or child,
Or we could be someone that someone looks up to like a Pastor
and a fellow brother or sister.
No matter how you see it those
"curve balls"
that are being thrown at us,
well, they will always be flying at us.
It's like someone wise once told me,
"We will have to endure so much in our walk with the Lord
Because we are believers in Christ
there will be days were temptation is constantly knocking at our door."
which is so true we will be tempted in so many ways,
some days more than others.
In James 1:12 (KJV) it says
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:
for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
An important person in my life (besides the Lord) preached to my heart,
I can honestly say that I have been tempted and failed.
The devil won and I let it happen.
BUT I can honestly say I will make sure it never happens again.
To think that I let the devil win and to let myself and the Lord down,
I want the rewards that the Lord will give us
I want to give my all to the Lord and to be able to stand up for him and what I believe in instead of hiding in the selfish, sinful flesh.
The devil is the tempter in all our lives and he wins a lot more then we think,
but just because he wins does not mean we should give up...
NO...
it just means we need to work harder,
to keep faith and to be strong,
as well as give ourselves to Jesus.
Not just a part but all of ourselves!
The devil and the sinner will be punished in front of the Lord.
Can you say you honestly want to stand in front of the Lord
with the devil at your side.
Just because you wanted to let the flesh be happy
or
Do you want to be happy next to the Lord
as the devil is punished for his wrong doings,
knowing that you were able to pass the test and say no or say
"Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve."
Matthew 4:10 (KJV)
We as sinners lust after the flesh we lust
for what is of this world and I totally understand.
It does seems hard at times but to be honest...
When I pray every day whenever and wherever I am,
I feel and know Jesus is with me and cares.
I will continue to pray for those who do wrong
to me or have ever harmed me.
I will continue to pray for myself for
strength, love, kindness, and wisdom.
I will continue to pray that the Lord blesses all
from whom I know and those I meet.
I will continue to pray for those who are weak, lost, ill, or strayed from the Lord's path.
Prayer will get you through the hardest times,
when you feel like temptation is at your door...
pray, recite versus, or give worship and praise to the Lord.
Matthew 28:20 (KJV)
... and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen
Jesus is always with us and will always give you a way out!
Proverbs 15:3 (KJV)
The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

Flowers . . .


My little guy next to the Sunflowers he planted...


Edible Flowers...? But they are to cute to be eatin.




Flowers I saw at the farmers market... Beautiful



These are flowers I saw when waking in Montana...
(All pictures listed above are my very own pictures that I took)


And this is a picture of the most prettiest flower/tree a
Cherry Blossom...

Flowers there are many different colors and shapes and sizes,
We love them all.
That is how we should be with one another,
We should love one another.
Though we may disagree, or dislike something,
The Lord tells us to love one another.
Yet we still should put some space between,
those that are not equally yoked with us as well.
That way we are not tempted to do worldly things.

What is a Vacation…?

The definition to vacation is: A period of suspension of work, study, or other activity, usually used for rest, recreation, or travel; recess or holiday.
We all try to take vacation to get away from our jobs or everyday life and or responsibilities. But when we go on those supposed vacation we still bring our worry’s and the world with us we still think about our jobs about money and about all of life’s issue we never just relax and cast our worry to the Lord…
I know that I do have so many worries and burdens from life that are in the past and coming in the future, I put faith in my heavenly father and cast my worry’s and burdens on him and he always finds away. I am not going to lie I do tend to think and worry about what is to come in my life from school, working, and my family. I have learned to cast my worries and burdens on the our Lord, It say’s
Psalm 55:22
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
I cast my worries and burdens every time to him because I have faith and keep my faith, I will continue with it. Vacation we want peace and relaxation from our surroundings, but no one will get it no matter how many vacation anyone takes or how long even if it is far away from home. Not till the day we step up and accept the gift that is given to us, once we accept that gift and cast our lives as well as burdens to the Lord Jesus Christ we will never truly have that relaxation nor peace.
My life is a very different life and as I look at friends both old and new and my family both old and new, I am able to see so much of a difference and it scares me to know how much I am different and how much I have grown. I am texted always by the devil and the Lord and I will do my best to past and this VACATION has should me so much. No matter how far away I go or for how long or even where I go I still need to live for the Lord and to show and tell others. The Lord opened my eyes to many things in life and I can see so many things that… well that just makes me pray harder not for me but for others.
One day I will be used by the Lord, Which I know I am now it may be a small thing to some but it is still a calling and I will do my best and hope and pray that I lead others instead of turning away.

A way of escape...



I have noticed that most while they go on vacation they tend to forget to focus on an important aspect in their life… That most important thing in our lives is The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, though we may go on vacation to visit new places or old friends and families’s we should still keep focused and keep hold of him. We are to pray without ceasing the bible says and to devote ourselves to him in daily reading and prayer.
I noticed myself slipping into that lazy want to do nothing but enjoy my time mode the first two days out here. But then I was brought back, I remembered that without his daily words I feel weak and I came across some people who I would say needs to hear his words. Those people I came across you could feel and see the evil, see the world all over them. I thank the Lord for his different ways to let me know to get away from this person because the devil is really working in this person’s life and could harm me or even make me fall from where I currently am.
I just want to say that because the Lord is working in my life I can see those who are of this world and see the true forms of others… I cry and pray for them that the important people to me can let go and realize that they are straying away from God. I remember I was hanging out with someone and I was fine but once the other person came along I started to get a bad headache and this person was just unruly and actions were, well let’s say it made me uncomfortable and the headache grew the longer I stayed till finally I said good-bye and left.
John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall        not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
            Psalm 78:10
They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
            Psalm 5:8
Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
            Psalm 119:11, 66, 67, 68
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
There are many scriptures that give us guidance and tell us to walk a straight and narrow path. That the Lord will guide us and gives us help as well as give us another way to escape the temptation. But I am glad that he gives us that way to escape to be able to remove ourselves from temptation and remove ourselves from most bad situations.

California Trip

The wait till the trip begins seems to always be the longest waiting time, I was packed and tickets in hand arriving early to claim my seats. But once at the check in counter I find out they are boarding the plane and already gave my seats away...? I am thinking I pay $60 to save my seat and you give them away yes that makes sense right? No I do not think so, me and my little ducklings board the plane for the 2 hour flight to Nevada Las Vegas or Sin City as we all know it. As we are waiting for takeoff the kids are looking out the window and the plane begins to move their faces light up and are full of excitement as we ride along the pathway and then you feel the acceleration and speed, which makes us bump and bounce on the plane letting us know we are about to go up into the sky. I tell the kids to feel and watch the window as we are lifting off the ground.



We are in the sky’s flying towards our destinations so the long and boring flight seems even longer when there are two kids needing to be entertained and not much to entertain them with. We arrive at our destination and there is my father waiting for us after we finally find our way to the luggage claims where he is waiting. As soon as I am there we hug each other and wait to claim the bags which waiting for 30 minutes we are finally able to leave and we walk out into the hot humid day in Vegas.



Many know me and at one point in time I would have loved being there years ago, but it gave me a pain in my head (literally) bring on the migraine which did not leave till we left the state line. It was nice to be in the hotel to cool off but not much to do there when you are against drinking and gambling, let’s just say my kids were saying “mommy gambling is bad so why are they doing it” then I replied “not everybody understands that it is wrong and we do know that it is wrong thanks to the Lords words, they give us the correct information we need to know what is a sin” and there were other questions and other answers.
I get to drive my dad’s new car all. The way home while everyone sleeps on Saturday the day after we arrive. By 12:30pm pacific time we arrive and unpack. The next few days I was able to see a few friends. I also was able to stop on Monday at a Mexican store to pick up my most favorite thing called “Mexican candy” which is quite yummy… now I am sitting at my dad’s table typing this while my two boys and my father are watching Rio a really great bird cartoon that came out and they love it.

Ashamed and Overcoming…


Ashamed and Overcoming…

What does this word mean to you?
Romans 12:17 – 21
Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men,
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Psalm 119: 6
Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
Psalm 119:46
I will speak to thy testimonies also before Kings, and will not be ashamed.
Psalm 119:116
Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live; and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
I choose this because we as people try to overcome obstacles in our lives but do we ever overcome anger, revenge, hatred, I think this is something worth doing.
We all should look at how David and goliath went down; David overcame one obstacle in his life and was not ashamed of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. David was made fun of by others and was told he would be crushed but he had faith and was not ashamed to tell it to other and show his devotion. He steps forward to fight goliath to show him that our Lord is more powerful then he will ever be. He loved and feared Our Lord Jesus and went to goliath and overcame what no one was able to do…
There are two things I am referring to that we as Christians should do:
1.       To not be ashamed to spread the word and live as Christians should.
We as Christians should live our lives for the Lord so we can lead others to the Lord as well, I know I want to bear my own fruit so that when I get to heaven I will know I helped others to get there or plant a seed in them.
2.      To overcome evil that we may come across in life and as good witnesses in Jesus Christ.
We as Christians should not seek revenge if we were wronged against, hurt or even angered. I know it seems hard to not want to get back at someone, but the Lord does tell us in Romans 12: 19 “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” And we may think we should but the Lord will repay them more then we could ever do. Not that I am telling you that the Lord will harm someone but we do not know when or how but he will repay them for that wrong doing, so we need to remember if we feel that need for revenge then we should put it on the Lord to handle and just move forward as believers in Christ.
I say this because we accepted Jesus into our hearts we should act as Christians, meaning act as Christ did by following his words and commandments. By showing others who he was and what he did for all of us no matter the race, size shape, ethnicity Jesus died on the cross for all our sins!

There are those times . . .



Having two boys and being a single mother can be hard sometimes, I have two handsome boys I do love them more than anyone would know but there are times when I seem to lose myself and my heart races so fast that I have a hard time breathing. Like today everything was going good the boys were playing outside enjoying the nice weather. Then it is time to come in and sit down to eat (which of course everyday goes well till a certain time and then BAM an outburst) today was more of a laid back day so let’s just say he through a fit over what he had to eat for dinner. When this happens I just get so quick to anger (which we know it says not to in the KJV Bible) anyways I walked away went to my room to pray while my kids sat at the table one enjoying the meal the other whining. I came back my heart no longer in my throat beating so fast making my breaths easier to take, I told him that he can eat what I made because he is not getting anything else to eat and left it at that. So he took a few bits and was done. When days like this come it hurts me so bad because I am human and do get upset but also because when I get upset it shows and I feel like I failed as being a mom! I truly love my boys they are the gifts from God to me and I cherish it. But it’s just so hard sometimes to have to look at my kids when they do wrong, whine, throw tantrums, I thank God every day for getting me through these hard times and the bad feelings I sometime get about myself. I am a good mom and teach my boys about the Lord and the right things to do versus the wrong but hey everyone has those off days when the day is going good and SMASH you turn into a wall (a child decides to act out).
Here are a few verses worth remembering:
Proverbs 15:1
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
Proverbs 15:3
The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
Proverbs 15:18
A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
James 1:19-20
Wherefore, my beloved brethren let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
So there will always be times when someone you know or do not know will test you and all you or I have to do is remember these versus. Because even though I do get angry I pray and the Lord calms me down. So just remember the Lord is always with us and can help us through anything from a child throwing a fit to a family or friend getting you upset by laying your clean clothes on the floor or not doing what they should have. No matter the reason always I MEAN ALWAYS take your worries and problems to the Lord he is our Savior and wants us to rely on him first!

I might not be the best but . . .

I might not be the best person,
I might not be the best Christian,
I might not have the best testimony
But I will do my Best because
The Lord loves me no matter what!
2 Corinthians 5:17-18
Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
Behold, all things are become new.

And all things are of God,
who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ,
and hath given to us the ministry or reconciliation;

Because I am a sinner I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
He died for my sins!
I am washed in the blood of the Lamb,
I have asked the Lord to come into my heart
and to save me from myself (the flesh) and this world!!!
NOTW – Not Of This World
A good versus to memorizes
Isaiah 55:8-9
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
Neither are your ways my ways,
Saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts.

The Lord God Almighty is and should be our
 first in line of our hearts and mind.
Jesus first
Others second
Ourselves last
