This New Year

Lord, my precious Savior, help me turn to You through this New Year’s prayer. May I be grateful for every breath. Dear Lord, as circumstances and issues came against me last year and have followed me into this New Year, I cry out to You. Empower me with Your Holy Spirit to overcome these obstacles with a good perspective, realizing You allow trials in my life to mold me into the image of Your marvelous Son. 

I need a Father to truly love and care for me. You are that Daddy, though at times I don’t feel Your presence. Remind me that You will never leave or forsake me. Teach me to find rest for my troubled heart. Lord, let Your Word renew my mind day after day in this New Year. Protect me from the enemy who is on the prowl to devour me.

This New Year, help me trust in You rather than be clothed with discouragement. My desire is to follow You wholeheartedly this New Year. Let my mind be renewed, refreshed, and returned to the joy of Your salvation. 

Heavenly Father, let me be not only a hearer of Your Word, but also a doer, practicing Your teachings, no longer quenching the Holy Spirit. Cause me to act on opportunities instead of apathetically overlooking them. This readiness involves praising and worshipping You with a pure heart.

This New Year, I trust Your closeness and care. I have no need for fear because You lavish Your love on me. My Father, I purpose to know more and more of You, seeking Your Kingdom and reign over my life. May my actions prove I treasure the Holy Spirit indwelling inside me. 

Let this New Year and the following years consist of You reign in me. Let me take the time daily to lift Your name on high. Let me realize all the marvelous gifts that come from above: rain, sunshine, blessings. Then, I will bless You with all my soul. 

May my mind focus on heavenly priorities: loving You and my neighbor. Lord, this New Year let me walk in humility, serving You, loving You, giving You glory and honor every day. Each day of this New Year may I acknowledge You in everything and for everything. I thank You for the work You do inside me by Your love, power, and might.

Thank You for this New Year. Let me do according to Your good pleasure and purpose, pleasing You in every area of this life. Thank You for Your mercy which makes all things new each morning - even after a day of failure.

Father, thank You for adopting me as Your child. In this New Year, I cry Lord my Father, thanking you for restoring a right relationship with me through the cross. Conform and transform me unto all godliness through the burdens and blessings You allow to cross my path.

Lord, thank You for hearing my prayer. You care intimately for me. May this New Year be truly about You – May I be all about God in my actions and attitudes. From this New Year’s prayer, let me not forget to listen carefully to You. Give me eyes to see and a heart to do Your will this New Year and each and every New Year to come. 

In Jesus Name Amen! 

Cheers 2015

A Random Day



Your Favorite Aunt


Dearest Redneck Son,
I’m writing this slow because I know you can’t read fast. We don’t live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. I won’t be able to send you the address because the last North Carolina family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so they wouldn’t have to change their address.
This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I’m not sure if it works so well, though. Last Week, I put a load of clothes in and pulled the chain. We haven’t seen them since. The weather isn’t bad here. It only rained twice last week; the first time for three days and the second time for four days.
Auntie Maude has sent you a pair of socks she knit, she put a third one in because she heard you have grown another foot since she last saw you.
About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Billy said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.
Jimmy locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours to get me and your father out.
Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven’t found out what it is yet, so I don’t know if you are an aunt or uncle. The baby looks just like your brother.
Uncle Bobby fell into a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated, he burned for three days.
Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn’t get the tailgate down. There isn’t much more news at this time. Nothing much out of the normal has happened.
Your Favorite Aunt,
Mom

godiz - My homie "Mumble Yawn" was reading this letter for me... we laughed so hard i almost pee'd myself. It was kinda sad though :'-( so, i kinda felt bad. I'm not sure if it is an actual letter?

Bible Verse Sunday

Fruity Fresh Salad

winter/summer

godiz - There are so many yummy fruit salads to make and to choose from... I usually make one when i fast. I chose Sunday as my fasting day. When I'm on my fasting, i only eat once through out the day (raw). But if i would feel real hungry, I'll add some seeds, nuts to snack on. And water, of course. I love my salad with cinnamon and some fresh ginger. The flavors combined creates a yummy wintery flavor. For summer i like to use more herbs in my salads. Google fruit salad for more inspiration. Sky's the limit to what you can do. Enjoy!

Blessings

I know that i don't know you, but i consider myself a good judge of character and i like your energy. You seem to be a compassionate woman, you have a good heart. You're actually a good woman to the core. You're happy in the skin you're in. You are a strong woman but you're looking or rather waiting for something strong enough to submit too and you're also funny. I love that you are a God-fearing woman, that is more attractive than any outfit, hairstyle, heels or jewelry that a woman could dress her self in. The fact that you ordain yourself with the word of God is the most beautiful thing you could ever put on. You seem to have the characteristics of the woman described in proverbs, that so many men are in search of. Every reply to every message, you send with blessings, when really just your spirit is the true blessing. I thought they stopped production on your kind? Nice to know that women like you still exist. Thank you for that.

godiz - to the person that wrote me this, so sweet thank you <3
Any good you find in me, is all thanks to Christ... cause He makes me better :-)
Love & Blessings to all my people!

Fire Safety Supplies

what everyone should have in their home...

extinguishers, fire blanket, fire alarm, flash light, first aid kit

Only What You Do

Success has deceived the world today
Even in the Church, so many has gone astray
They're living in a world of fantasy
Blinded by the pressures of this high society
Fame and Fortune is their reward
They don't know that man's glory lasts for a season
They must know, what goes up, must come down
Except when the Lord takes you on higher ground
Many dream their dreams and set their minds to reach their goals
What will it profit a man to gain this world and lose his Soul
A world of pride where people are forced to compromise
But in the end, they know they're never really satisfied
They've got to know
The world only gives guarantees that will not last
Knowing not who holds the future, who holds the present or the past
On Christ, who's rock you must stand
For the ground where you are standing
Is nothing but sinking sand
Only what you do for Christ will last
Everything else will fade, like the future becomes the past
Only what you do for Christ will last
Remember always,

Remember only what you do for Christ will last

Jason

The most AMAZING person you will ever meet and one of the best friends you could ever have. He actually cares about your well being. He is generous, sincere, goofy, kindhearted and down to earth a truly remarkable person. He is very loyal, is protective and would sacrifice everything for his friends and family. He go out of his way, especially for the people he loves. He listens to you, never judges you, instead challenges you to be a better person. He shows love in everything he does. What he says he will do. Through good and bad times he always smiles. A very thankful and positive person. Whoever gets the chance to know him, will be a lucky person. Jason is a wonderful man with a heart of gold. And i am glad to call him my brother and ONE of my closest friends.




Jason from the Greek name Ιασων (Iason), meaning ιασθαι (iasthai) "to heal". 
Happy Blessed Birthday Jason - may there be forever more to come
With Love Sandy & Co

Adultery

"This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called woman... Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (Gen. 2:23-24) God provided a woman as a helpmate for Adam. God ordained marriage and blessed it, "Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it" (Gen. 1:28a). To preserve the fidelity of marriage, God gave Israel the seventh commandment: "Thou shalt not commit adultery" (Ex. 20:14). "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge" (Heb. 13:4). God's intent for husbands and wives is for them to be faithful to each other. Adultery is sexual intercourse between a married man and a female not his wife, or sexual intercourse between a married woman and a man who is not her husband. If a man was found with another man's wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman were to die by stoning (Deut. 22:22; John 8:3-5). A husband and wife are no longer two, but one. "What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder" (Matt. 19:6b). Adultery occurred in the early church. "It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you... and such fornication as is not so much as named among the gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that done this deed might be taken away from among you" (1 Cor. 5:1-2). Church leadership is to correct, rebuke, and instruct the adulterer. A lifestyle of adultery keeps one from inheriting the kingdom of God. "Do not be deceived: neither fornications, no idolater, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you, but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God" (1 Cor. 6:9-11). A person who commits adultery can receive God's forgiveness. God forgives those who repent. A woman was caught in the act of adultery and Jesus said. "Go and sin no more" (John 8:11b). Believers are to practice faithfulness to God and in their personal relationships. God uses the faithfulness to His children. Adultery destroys the relationship God wants to have with His children whom He loves! Read Matthew 19:4-6 see also Deuteronomy 22:22.

A Star Named Sandy

There are soft skies in those stormy eyes. 
 They have lent their brown to color the ink 
that paints these pages with pieces of shadings 
and metaphors to make your portrait. 
Sometimes I'm just in awe and all I can hear 
 are my own thoughts sighing with relief 
 as they fall asleep at your presence. 
 And sometimes my words don't say 
as much as I'd like and they're tossed aside. 
 There may as well be a city of skyscrapers 
 built by poetry all in your name, 
 waiting for your breath to let them scatter 
 and hope you'll discover them. 
 A beauty so well equipped lives within you 
that I never knew the gates of heaven were so close, 
 And as i look at you, It's as if my spirit was bound to you, 
 like an angel in my head spoke. 
 My words right now could never amount to such glamour, 
 but you've inspired my mind to stretch a distance 
worthy enough to strike you better then ever, 
 Till this day I don't vividly remember 
 seeing such a glorious star, 
and by the grace of God, When I enter His holy kingdom, 
 I'll always remember that you brought heaven to me 
(Sandy).
