A reason to smile.....










Do you ever wonder if you're normal,  if you're like everyone else?

You are unique in Jesus Christ.   One of a kind.  Yet, many of the issues we have in life are alike. 
We want happiness, we desire peace in our lives, we need to be loved and feel love, and too love.......
We need food and protection and a place to live.  

I guess that's about where "normal" ends  for the child of God!  Listen, you are a child of THE King!

God's Word says.............
1 Peter 2:9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:

Did you get that......we are a chosen generation! A royal priesthood!  He has called us "out"
of darkness!  And into His marvelous light!
What and honor.....to be called a child of the Most High.  
As a child of THE King,  everything about us should speak royalty. Not to be LORD over people, but to be confident enough in Jesus to be like HIM.   The way we look, the way we look at people.....what we say and how we say it.........how we interact with the hurting or hopeless........ kind, gentle, peaceful, loving, easy to get along with, tender, compassionate.
If these characteristics are not who you are, spending more time with your Father will remedy this.

There is no need for us to wonder.....there is no need for us to struggle in who we are......there is no reason to feel alone.......there is healing and fellowship and contentment and happiness in Jesus as we walk in this marvelous light.

 1Jo 1:7 if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us.
He said......James 5:11
Behold, we count them happy which endure.

Ahhhhh happy, doesn't that sound good.....thanks Jesus.
 Accept your heritage today and walk in light and  happiness, peace and victory!  
from my heart, 
love

Mothers Day

                                                                                                                                                               Mothers Day Mothers day, just the mention of it makes us reflect on and reassess our lives.   So what does a real life, good Mother look like. I believe God's vision for Mothers is to love....  Agape Love.  Life giving love that is born from a heart that gives.  She puts her children and others at a high priority.  It doesn't mean she's perfect.  If that were the criteria there would be no examples.  Some people were given  Mothers who had or have this kind of love.  A Mother who waits until everyone else has a full plate before she eats, a Mother who does everything she knows to do to bring us a good life.  As I reflect,  my Mother was far from perfect.....as a matter of fact, I didn't really feel love from her until after my Father died and our first son was born.  But listen, I also realize she gav

Let's talk about adoption

Adoption is the method God chose to bring us (strangers) into His family as His own.... When we entered into the adoption process it was a complete mystery to me.  Would I be able to take this baby and love him as my own?  When a woman births her own child, most of the time, she also gives birth to a new deeper love within herself to nurture the baby.  But, how would I "feel" about someone else's child?  God, through many trials and tears brought Isaac into my life at a moment of great transition.  He had been working on me!  Reshaping me!  Most of the time when we view ourselves, we see a pretty okay human being.   Giving ourselves a whole lot of our attention. God had to bring me to a place of seeing the deep needs of those around me and off my own perceived need.  When Isaac was born, my husband was on a mission trip.  We had not been in Michigan very long, so I didn't know Detroit well at all.  God had taught me enough about the roads system that I

together forever.....remember love

    There is an unwritten rule in our family that say's "we will be there for each other....no matter what". Though time or space or difference of opinion may separate us, the love picks up right where we left off when we are together. That's how we as Christians should be with each other.  You know sometimes, we won't see eye to eye, sometimes one or both of us will be grumpy.........but we are bound in love as the family of the Most High God.......(if you don't feel this way......why not?) We might try to walk away from the "family" but truth is we are still family!!!!!! The Holy Spirit of God lives in all our hearts as Jesus Christ believers.....Christians. Nothing will ever separate us from the love of our Father, and nothing should be big enough to separate us as believers either.  It just shouldn't be......we all have some pretty big things God has had to forgive us  and we've all had some pretty big things done to us th
