Christopher

39 years ago today a boy child came into my life. He was all wrinkled and beautiful and rubbed a big blister on his nose while in the nursery at the hospital.. He was a hoot when we brought him home............... Today he is the love of my life along with my wonderful hubby Dennis. Christopher has a kind and forgiving heart and he has stood beside me all the years that I messed up my life and his. He forgives easy and he loved deep. He lives here in town close and that does my heart good. He is a police officer and has been for many years now and he is a good cop. I pray for him daily...... Happy Birthday Chris............ You are a good son.............I know that for your faithfulness to me during those hard years that God is going to bless you above all that you can imagine....

Love Mom

I Cried and Cried

I cried and cried today like I have not cried in a long time........... My sweet little Mom was so mistreated today and it threw her into a state that I have never seen.
If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that me and my husband and brother Paul and his wife Alpha have been taking care of my Mom and Dad for several yeas and the past year and half they have been living right out by my house. After the dust settled and I went back over there to see how she was doing, she was standing on the front porch with no shoes and no jacket. It was very cold today and I gentle spoke to her as not to upset her any further and told her she might need to go inside. I went in and finished their dinner and on my way back to the house from the bottom of my heart came sobs that I could not contain. I just cannot imagine someone taking that precious little woman and manipulating her just to get something. That is what this is all about, it is to get something that Mother owns, and this person is hell bent to get it.

I just cannot tell you how my heart hurts tonight for my Mom, I cannot tell you who did this but they are part of this family............ they read my blog and even now will be writing something to tear me down again......... I just cannot understand why in the world a person that claims to be born again can do that to this precious soul. This person does not care about others only themselves. I have kept to my self a lot about this situation in our family as I do not want to upset Dad....... (he is on the Internet) but this blog is a way for me to talk and share and find some kind of release for these things that hurt our hearts............

I want to pray and forgive and ask God to bless this person and help them to understand the damage they did today............ but some days I do not want to pray............ I do not want God to bless them, I want them to understand what they did today and feel sorry and maybe repent.
Me and PE and Alpha and Dennis are working so hard to keep them safe and well and for someone to do this is far beyond anything that my mind can even imagine.
Tell me ladies, what would you do, how would you handle someone in the family that would have no regard for the feelings of these precious little people in my care. If I were a man and this were a man we would meet in the front yard............. but that cannot happen. I just so covet your prayers tonight ........ Pray for Mom that tomorrow she has recovered and regains some of the mental state that keeps her able to stay out here.............. I am so angry, I am so hurt, I so am still crying............. Ladies, just say a prayer tonight for my Mom.............. I love her so and want her here and happy................

Watch My Mouth

Dennis and I had a great 4 days together.. We did just what we wanted to do.......NOTHING........ After getting ready for Thanksgiving on Thursday and getting all the decorating in the house for Christmas by the time that we finished dinner we were TIRED........ Just as everyone of you.......... Soooooooooooooooo on Friday and Saturday and Sunday we did nothing! We sat around and read and watched some NCIS and some Pastor Scott recordings. It was wonderful! There is just something about doing nothing and nothing is something that we do not do much...... I have much to do come tomorrow morning but that is life......... What i want to share with you is something that happened yesterday evening and as usual I reacted quick and in some ways not so good. I have been reading and studying my word of God regarding this scripture:

1 Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

1 :14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

1: 15 But as HE which hath called you is HOLY , so be ye HOLY in all manner of conversation.

Now, there it is, the scripture that I want to study more and have the Father continue to renew my mind and my heart so that when offensives come, I will not react according the the former conversations. Now if you will look at verse 14 it states that we lived in the lusts of the flesh and of the conversations in ignorance, but now we know the truth and it is no long in ignorance that we speak. I want the Lord to build in me the conversation of truth and light so that when faced with the twists and turns of life I will have the conversation to confront that storm. That is my prayer and I have been asking the Lord for such............. Why did I not see this coming? Be assured that when we begin to seek out the Lord for a specific thing and we are praying for HIM to create in us more of HIM and more of HIS conversation that sure as you are sitting there reading this, the enemy of your soul will throw something at you to discourage you and stop you in your tracks.......... That is his job and he will show up.............. That is exactly what happened in my life last night.............
Some of you ladies know the struggle I have with one of my siblings and I guess it will continue unless the Lord can reach their heart. Anyway, I was enjoying my evening and there it was, an email. Most of the time I delete all email from this person but I have not talked to them for many weeks now after helping them with money and other provisions so I felt that the email would be friendly............. oops.......... Not so friendly............
What we need to always remember that there will always be times when the word that lives in us will be tested. That brings spiritual growth in us and it teaches us that outside of Christ we are flesh and will react thus, but inside Christ we can overcome and our conversation will be Holy. After allowing the anger to subside I remembered the scriptures that I have been reading and after a while understood that all manner of my conversation can be Holy........ It is in the reading and lending our lives to the word that we read and place in our spirit man. We alone have the opportunity to respond as we please, but this scripture tells us that we CAN be HOLY....... Verse 15.........so be ye HOLY in all manner of conversation. I did ok, but I could have responded better............. I did not pass or fail, I grew......... It is the word in us that brings to our mind what the Holy Spirit wants to teach........... We listen, we grow......... Today, well I am over the hurt and moving on into the Lord , with more understanding that others are listing to my conversation, ALL manner of my conversation........... I will listen and learn and watch my mouth..............

Have a blessed Monday girls...................... Christmas is coming and the geese are getting fat!
