KEEP THE FAITH

September 27, 2006

People are often unreasonable and self-centered

            FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY

If you are  kind people may accuse you of ulterior motives

           BE KIND ANYWAY

If you are honest, people may cheat you

           BE HONEST ANYWAY

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow

           DO GOOD ANYWAY

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough

           GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY

For you see in the end it is between you and God

IT NEVER WAS BETWEEN YOU AND THEM

           ANYWAY!

Poem by Mother Teresa

I came across this today and it hit me, if more of us were to act this way, it would be a better world. Instead of you said, he said, the love of our family and the others in our word would be soo much easier to take. When someone reaches out to us with kind and loving words, for heaven’s sake don’t slap it back in their face, it might be the last time you will ever see their face, or hear their voice; then it is too late! There is no way to be sure of your life , and it is to short ,and can be taken from us in the twinkle of an eye.

    

STANDING IN THE GAP

September 24, 2006
  • I’LL STAND IN THE GAP FOR MY SON.
  • I’LL STAND ‘TILL THE VICTORY’S WON.
  • THIS ONE THING I KNOW
  • THAT YOU LOVE HIM SO
  • AND YOUR WORK WITH MY CHILD IS NOT DONE/
  • I’LL STAND IN THE GAP EVERY DAY,
  • AND THERE I WILL FERVENTLY PRAY.
  • AND LORD JUST ONE FAVOR
  • DON’T LET ME WAVER
  • IF THINGS GET QUITE ROUGH, WHICH THEY MAY.
  • I’LL NEVER GIVE UP ON THAT BOY.
  • NOR WILL YOU, FOR YOU PROMISED HIM JOY.
  • FOR I KNOW IT WAS TRUE
  • WHEN HE SAID”YES” TO YOU,
  • THOUGH THE ENEMY SEEKS TO DESTROY.
  • I’LL NOT QUIT AS I INTERCEDE,
  • FOR YOU ARE HIS SAVIOR, INDEED!
  • THOUGH IT MAY TAKE YEARS,
  • I GIVE YOU MY FEARS,
  • AS I TRUST EVERY MOMENT I PLEAD.
  • AND SO IN THE GAP I WILL STAND,
  • HEEDING YOUR EVERY COMMAND,
  • WITH HELP FROM ABOVE,
  • I’LL UNCONDITIONALLY LOVE,
  •  AND SOON HE WILL REACH FOR YOUR HAND!

      POEM BY SHIRLEY POPE WAITE

THIS PRAYER HAS BEEN ON MY VANITY MIRROR SO THAT I CAN PRAY THIS EVERYDAY. AS I READ IT AGAIN, I REALIZE THAT IT CAN BE FOR EACH OF OUR CHILDREN. THIS IS MY WAY OF ASKING THE LORD TO SHOW FAVOR AND KEEP THEM SAFE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING OUT IN THE WORLD, BUT I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT THEY REALIZE THAT HE IS STILL THERE WAITING FOR THEIR OUTSTRETCHED HAND. I ALSO KNOW IN MY HEART OF HEARTS THAT THE TEACHINGS OF THEIR YOUTH WILL NEVER LEAVE THEIR HEARTS AND THAT SOMEDAY THEY WILL COME HOME TO HIM. PRAISE THE LORD.

WOMEN OF FAITH

September 18, 2006

What a beautiful weekend I’ve had, now it is down to earth! If any of you have ever been to a Women of Faith conference you know what I am talking about. It is what every woman needs, a complete revival of self and God. As I was sitting listening to the “girls” I kept saying to myself: I wish my girls were here, they would have loved it. I kept thinking of my oldest and I knew that she would have adored the conference, so much of it reminded me of her, I guess the Lord was talking to me, because she is so much on my mind lately. I miss her, talking to her, seeing her, but am trying to respect her feelings of not seeing me, it is so hard! But I need to let the Lord lead in this, even though it is breaking my heart.

Robin Mcgraw was one of the guest speakers on Sat.I thought how in the world did she get to speak to women of faith? Boy was I suprised, she is so much a christian and her testimony was alsome! After she spoke there was a comotiion in the background and who do you think came up on stage!? Oh yeah the man himself! Dr. Phil! He suprised her and brought the house DOWN! He is christian and spoke too. The Women of Faith team will be featured on his show on Oct. 3. Watch it!

I am so glad that I went, even though my girlfriend backed out on me at the last minute, what a stress factor, I almost backed out but then decided I’ll go on my own. I am glad that I did, the Lord ministered to me this weekend, I needed his touch soooo much. It is sooooo wonderful! Now I need to remember to carry him around with me all the time!

SAD BUT HAPPY DAY

September 11, 2006

Yesterday was my ex mother-in-laws 1yr. anniversay of her returning to heaven. boy do I miss her. She was the closest to a mom that I have ever known. I truly believe that she didn’t know an enemy! She just didn’t believe in not seeing good in everybody. That is the hardest shoes to walk in. Even in my divorce she made sure that I knew that I was considered her daughter. How humble she made me feel. I will always love her! She understood my needing to back away for my own sanity, we had many long talks about it, and I know she truly understood my hurt, my feelings. But that is water under the bridge, and there are things my children don’t know that she knew, and agreed that the kids needed a loved life, which she happily gave. To her I give my love and thanks for all she did for me.
