Mothers Day

Mothers Day.

so many things go through the mind at Mothers Day......

greatest joys

deepest hurts

 proudest moments

maternal bonds

Wednesday evening we took a look at the Book of Ruth.  Naomi, Ruth's mother-in-law had to face some very tough situations. Her husband and sons died, one of her daughter-in-laws returned to her former gods.....  Coming back into Bethlehem Judah, the people couldn't even recognize her.  Life had been harsh and hard.  

Many times, I think we feel like Naomi.  Life just hurts so much and we are no longer the carefree youth we once were.  We want to sit down and sulk in our hardships.

But listen,  He was not finished with Naomi, and He isn't finished with you.  

Everyday is a chance to be a difference maker for someone.  Someone to nurture,  

Someone to encourage, someone listen, someone to be there.  

Mothers Day is a great reminder of the responsibilities we have as Mothers.

Not just for your children, but to nurture those around us.

14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.

 15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him. 

you've got this,

love Jackie

Mandisa - Overcomer (Lyric Video)

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
