ouch

No question about it, WORDS can  hurt......

Once something is said it is very hard to let it go.......to not let it sink deep into who we are.
By the time we are grown, most of us have endured many hurtful words.  Some much more than others.  For example, I have many very good friends who are black who have experienced racism.  Ignorant people have commented about something the have no right to say and do not understand.  The wound pierces deep and is hard to get over, to let go of........Now racism goes far beyond words, but lets start there.

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from  it flow the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23
This verse says it all.
out of the heart flow "all" of the issues of life
What is in your heart, will come out your mouth!
Could it be that the answer to all of our life's issues is simply for mankind to come to God with our heart conditions, and let the cleansing refreshing Word of God clean our hearts and give us a new outlook on life and on everyone around us.
I think the answer is YES!

Next time you choose to say something......to anyone......consider, examine, meditate on, your heart and ask yourself if it  is something Jesus would have you say or do!
A good place to start.....

love jackie

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
