HaPpY New Year 2017

Hello Friends!

Hope you are having a FABULOUS day!

2016 was quite a hectic one for our family.  It seems to have flown right by us so quickly.

The one verse that clung to my heart in 2016 was:

Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Whenever things happened that left me upset and worried this verse always came to mind. It is a reminder to think on the good things.  God has blessed us all with so many good things in this life. Here are a few that come to mind for me:

Jesus - Who died for me and loves me unconditionally

Family - My comfort and strength
Friends - Bring me joy and happiness
Pets - Lots of smiles
Home - For rest and relaxation
Water - To refresh me
Transportation - To get me where I'm going

Next time you are having a bad day and someone is making you upset - think on these things!

Prayer

Hello Friends,

This morning I was checking out my FB and was completely amazed with all the dear friends that were asking for prayer for friends, family, loved ones, & for themselves.

I don't think that we realize how much power there is in prayer.  The Bible says in:

Matthew 18:20

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Just imagine all the people reached in prayer from something as simple as FB.
Today as I went through and prayed for these requests, I saw a Mommy hugging her baby probably for the last time because she felt like she would not be here on earth much longer, a little boy that passed away from cancer, a dear friend whose Mom just found out in one week that she has terminal stage 4 cancer in her pancreas and may only have days to weeks to live, and a couple who are having marital problems.

The most AMAZING thing is that God loves each and every one of them the same.  

Prayer Matters!

HaPpY New Year 2016

Hello Friends,

I hope 2016 finds you doing wonderfully!

I wonder how many of you have made New Year Resolutions?  If so, how are you doing with them?  One of mine is to be better at blogging.

I've decided to pray and ask God for one word this year.  One word that will be the theme for me in 2016.  The word that has come to mind for me is Grace.

Biblical Look At Grace:
Forgiveness
Mercy
Repentance
Unmerited Favor 

                    G-od's
                    R-iches
                    A-t
                    C-hrist's
                    E-xpense

God so loving gives me Grace instead of the consequences that I deserve.  This makes me think about how I should respond when I come in contact with others each day, especially my family.

I'm so very thankful for God's Grace in my life.
