Are you my Mother?


                                                      

Some days, I tell you, I am so scary I am unrecognizable.......
Tired, overworked, pushed to my edge, wanting to give in and give up.  I sure don't resemble anything that looks like the mother I desire to be.......
It is obvious to everyone in close proximity I am not doing what is needed to keep my heart and mind sane and in step with God.....
This is when I need to self examine.

What went wrong and how did I end up here?
I love my kids and my husband.  Opening God's Word and soaking in the truth of His Word as his child, my attitude quickly turns around....Counting my blessings, recognizing His sacrifice on my behalf, He wants me to focus on Him and be thankful..........

We can know how we should act and still choose wrong thoughts and behaviors.  Our relationship with Jesus dulls when we act out of repetition instead of relying on Him completely.

The peace of God and a sound mind comes to us and exists in us when we are willing to seek and understand the truth of God.  Not trying to find "our personal truth", but God's truth about us!
How can I know I am finding God's truth?

First, look in the Bible for answers yourself.......
God am I being honest with myself?
Am I your child?
Have I asked you to be Master of my life today?
Is there something in me that I need to identify and change to conform to Your image?

Help me Lord, so my children will want to say,  I am happy you are my Mother and God will say well done!

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
