Sunday Love

“Let nothing trouble. Let nothing make you afraid. All things pass away. God never changes.Patience obtains everything. God alone is enough.” St. Teresa of Avila

Have Faith

To know, to love, to have faith in God is to have peace in your heart. Though one may walk with the Lord, disappointments may arise in life, but to have peace with the disappointments, to believe that God is with you lessens the blow of the disappointment as God is love.

Anyway

The well known poem from Mother Teresa who says “……anyway”

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Always Choose Kindness

1-9

The other day, my son stayed with a neighbor for a couple of hours because I had errands to run. He also happens to be good friends with her daughter. They go to school together although the daughter is a year ahead of my son. They’ve always gotten along so well. I love it! Anyway, the daughter is scheduled to have surgery and while with them for that couple of hours, my son offer this girl his help at school once she returns by “carrying her backpack or whatever.” He also told her that he’d “bring her any school work that she is missing just in case she isn’t able to return when planned.”

That evening upon my return home, and my son’s return, I called my neighbor to apologize for being later than I thought and send my prayers for her daughter with the upcoming surgery. During our conversation, she passed along the above conversation to me and let me know how impressed she was with his kindness.

I will tell you what, there are no better words in the world than hearing from someone how behaved, kind, and respectful your children are. It’s like a breath of fresh air! As I’m sure many parents do, sometimes I doubt my abilities as a mother so my neighbors kind words are much appreciated.

Anywho, just a small reminder that kindness goes a long way whether it benefits you personally or not, it benefits someone else. Isn’t that a goal we should all try to reach?

Kindness.

 

Gates to Heaven

There’s natural rock formation along the Missouri River near Helena, Montana where a person can take a riverboat tour. On the tour, the boat passes through a certain part of it that’s aptly named the Gates of the Mountains. Beautiful place, a must see so if you’ve never been, make it point to visit there in your lifetime! Find information here.

Anyway, on the this tour when going through that certain portion of the rock formations, it brought to mind the gates of Heaven. Now, the picture below is mine and nowhere near as beautiful as the Gates of the Mountains photos that you can find on the Internet, but it also reminded me of the scripture that speaks of the gates of Heaven. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

God’s Presence

We may not feel it at all times. Sometimes we may feel broken and abandoned. Sometimes, the sadness and hurt seeps in so deep that we feel so alone, but God is with us Always, especially in these harder moments. We only have to trust in Him, to have faith in Him.

Quote of the Day: Yes, You Are….

Well, I borrowed this from a FB post a few days ago. And since I am a woman, I guess I find it rather important to let women know they make a difference and

Yes, You Are Everything…….

everything needed to make a house into a home, for your home to run smoothly, to encourage and build the self-esteem of your children, and to meet the needs of your husband as only a wife can (in most facets of his life). He still needs God and possibly alone time as well as time to hang out with his buddies I suppose. However, to help fulfill those needs you only have to encourage your husband to hang out, talk to God daily, and take a couple of hours to himself just doing whatever men do.
