Today’s Grace

So, a few good things happened today. I bleached then washed and scrubbed the windows and will re-caulk them once they have dried. Cracks have developed and one coat is not enough in Florida, folks. Also, we are insulating our electrical outlets that are on outside walls. We are insulating thr sliding patio doors and adding a new threshold to our front door and complete the replacement of our lights to LEDs. And whenever they get around to it, the installers will be here of a new solar turbo attic fan to reduce the power use and strain of the air conditioner to work. All these things are paying for themselves in no time at all and will complete our home to an energy efficient one. And that to me is the grace of God at work. He provides blessings to lift n our burdens- spiritual first and then that trickles down to financial and physical. And I want you to know that God provides what we need when we need it if we stay close to Him and stay humble. He truly rewards the pure in heart with the greatest rewards. I would be ok with heaven sometimes, an eternity with Him. But His grace and provision do not ever stop, know no bounds. He keeps loving, keeps giving, keeps blessing, keeps forgiving, keeps improving us. Wish everyone could see it, wish everyone could be filled with humility and draw close to Jesus and see it all. It is beautiful! Oh how I love Him.❤

Grandparents Again!

So, my husband’s daughter just gave birth last night to baby #2, a boy. We are grandparents to 2 healthy, beautiful babies now! Yay! God blesses with life and we get to enjoy treasures like these. How beautiful!😄❤

Tribute to Getting Over It

There is a major difference between forgiving and getting over it. You can forgive in your heart from the deepest part of you and still retain that pain for a long time. You can heal from grief and still cry on a dime for a very long time, depending on the closeness to the lost and depth of your connection, history and heart. But here is a tribute to Getting Over it. Not sure that can be done by humans without God’s help or hope, but we can get to the point with His help that we can live the remainder of our lives free from the prison of pain and grief. Of course new ones will come, some stay from a different source perhaps, I mean it is life on earth and not n heaven yet. However, we can remove one burdened cloak and leave it on the road and keep walking on. And this is a tribute to that ability and glory to God for seeing fit to help me with it when I asked. Years and years have passed and now freedom in that area has arrived. Feels very much like Les Miserable. What a powerful thing to have one less burden to bear! Praise God, burden lifter!!!😄❤

Following Greatness & Child Heroes

When a child has a moral hero, that child will try to emulate that hero and have morals. If that child is given no moral hero, he will fasten onto an immoral hero and emulate that one. So it is important to put your kid’s tech down with its immoral heroes (like the killers in video games) and give your kids moral heroes in yourself or Bible (why Sunday School is so valuable) to emulate. Doing this produces better, moral children who can then grow into better, moral adults. Also, you are obeying God’s command to parents and thus storing up eternal rewards for yourselves (every act of obedience does this). So provide and talk about good moral heroes for your kids to emulate. David, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, Joseph, Esther, etc. of the Old Testament and Jesus (Superhero), Paul, John, etc. of the New Testament are examples. Superman of old was very moral and good to emulate (the new version is kind of a pansy so search out the old one where superheroes stood up for truth and morals). Another oldie but goodie moral-strong is the Lone Ranger and Tonto against robbers and murderers. I noticed a trend of new argumentative, pansy “heroes” nowadays who are about worthless, and I blame the enemy who is trying to destroy our kids so removes hope from them. We as parents need to see through these schemes and provide the moral heroes our kids need to model and develop morally into adults. They need this from us and we are told to provide this. We need to fight for and take back our kids. We are their parents, their strongest and sometimes only advocates. ❤

The Beauty of Godly Friends

We started the day with friends. What a beautiful way to start the day! It was a joy to just share some time and space and stories and gain some great Godly advice. Not much is sweeter or better in this world than Godly friendships. It soothes the soul, awakens the mind, makes you feel less lonely, brings joy and peace to the soul and heals wounds. A good ear to bounce things off of is vital to great soul health and giving an ear has become invaluable to me in hearing sage counsel. What a joy. I am so very thankful!❤

Don’t Cheapen Your Deep

Don’t cheapen your deep. God made you with depth of understanding and reasoning about eternal and spiritual matters. We are built that way and will never be satisfied until we go there. Go deep as was intended. Don’t cheapen your depth for those who cheapen theirs. ❤

Equipped to Serve

God designs us to serve Him and others in a particular way. Some to parenting, some to decoration, some to worship, some to organization, some to public speaking, whatever the case. God loves variety and loves us. We are given an innate gift to serve. Our task to honor God is to find and use it joyfully. Each person and each gift is beautiful! ♥
