No One Greater

God is greater. I don’t care who you are, God is greater. Does not matter how much money or status or power you have, all that is temporary, God is forever. The eternal God deserves the praise. He reveals His glory in what He made and what He made is infinitely better than what we re-assemble. God is greater and worthy of our constant attention, prayer, devotion , worship, respect. May God’s name be praised in all the world! And He is love to boot! The more you talk to, learn about, worship and praise Him, the better your life is and becomes. When He is the focus, the balance is soul is correct and focus is right and everything else falls into its proper perspective. Read His Bible/Word, contemplate Him, talk to Him, praise Him, sing songs to Him and about Him and you will always be glad you did. God is greatest.❤❤❤

God’s Prominence

God is the most important Person/Anything in the universe. I base that on the fact that He made everything. Think of it… everything you know about that exists in the universe was designed and made by God. That puts Him on the throne, friend. That puts everything else bowing to Him willingly (so much better) or unwillingly (a really bad plan). So, it would be so much better to put the cell phones/computers/social media/video games/entertainment/drugs/alcohol/pornography/heroes/addictions/obsessions down and give honor and praise and worship to God who designed and made you. Those things are worthless trash to distract and stupify you. They are traps of no worth. God needs to be returned to His rightful throne and prominence in our lives, our church, our city, our state, our country, our world. So much better to do so willingly while in this age of grace and mercy than to be forced to in the coming age of judgment. And because He is our loving God and we love Him back and are sincerely grateful for life at all, much less the many many blessings He pours out on our lives.❤❤❤

Happily Caught in the Light

When the garbage attitudes and evils and distractions of this world weigh in, we have a better way. Instead of falling for the garbage, we can focus on God, the light. When we fall for distractions, we become contributors to it so we must rise above it. And what is higher? God is highest, no one is greater. So I choose to put the garbage out to the curb and instead focus on being caught up in praising Jesus. What more worthy cause is there? What is better than worship? Nothing. So when the world throws relentless supplies of garbage at you over and over, flip the script and praise Jesus, our worthy Savior, who gave His all for us despite the garbage going on around Him and who proved His love right then and there, shining out light like day in the darkest night. Jesus is worthy of our focus and concentrating on Him will dispel the garbage and cast you into the fresh, clean light where He wants you to be. Protected. Loved. Happy.❤❤❤

Black Friday

I have never shopped ever on Black Friday. I have gone out people watching because seiously it is more contact fouls than a college football game. But lately it is more mean than funny and I think that is because of the rise in selfishness and my, ahem, “maturity”. Ok, I am feeling older now. But I ahem ways laughed ahemlwayst the marketing geniuses who got so many to buy into the “get it now for the cheapest price but hurry or you’ll miss it and never get it again” ploy. I am reminded of my husband’s quote, “It’s always on sale.” So true. And if you risk injury to get the perfect gift for that special someone, maybe their or your expectations are a wee bit high. Lol. But all that noise is nor my cup of tea anymore. I prefer peace. I really dig peace in my life and I am at a point where it characterizes me. Mostly, still a bit of a struggle sometimes, I am such a fighter, but I reserve the fight for the real battles and fight mostly on my knees in prayer now. (Love “War Room”!!!) So, peace to you today. And please pare down the gifts this year so we aren’t distracted by the fantastic birthday we are celebrating. If we are peaceful and quiet, maybe we can hear him cooing in the manger. Maybe we can remember the sweet momma and baby and stepdad that birthed and raised our precious Savior. Yes, I can hear it and smell the livestock smells and hear them talking about their sweet little baby. Much better than a grab race, eh? 😄❤

Detesting Evil

Evil is not good at all. There is no redeeming value in evil. It is not cute, funny, fun, interesting, mystical, magical, or valuable in any way at all. Flirting with evil is evil. Evil is dark, disturbing, ugly, grusome, and people genuinely kill and hurt other people for its master. Evil is horrifying, horrible, hideous. Celebrating any part of it supports it’s force and what it represents. Evil is destruction and violence, in direct opposition against the goodness of God. Not one iota of evil is in any way good or worth celebrating. It should be opposed at every turn. It should mortifying us. Evil should turn our stomachs. I say this truth to prove a point only and not to give evil more attention than it deserves. Our focus, rather, should be on God and His goodness, love, hope, salvation through Jesus Christ. This should be celebrated and praised all the time now and forever!❤

Quilt is Finished

Here is our finished family heirloom quilt. I finished the last hand-stitch during my technology fast and had to wait to tell you. This quilt means much to me personally because it is our story and every stitch was made by hand with love. The center is the story of Jesus Christ, and He is the center of my life. So I am covered by Christ symbolically as I am covered by Him spiritually. I have slept like a baby and it makes me happy to look at. Praise God! ❤ ❤ ❤
