Understanding Love

Little do they know they will always be your little Prince or Princess. Loving a child can give you a greater understanding of God’s Love toward us. It is unconditional, undeserving, without fail, without judgement, pure, honest, and so much more. In healthy relationships parents love children and in return children love their parents.

When you love someone you make sacrifices for them without considering your selfish needs. When loving your children you go out of your way for their happiness. They have so much to learn and as their parent you have so much to give them. Also when loving them there exists the natural inclination to protect them. All of these things God does for us without us asking for Him to do so.

My little princess (picture here) has come to me in such a unique way. She is my sister. It has been my pleasure to Love her through everything life brings our way, be it good, bad, or indifferent. Watching her learn and grow is an amazing experience. And teaching about life is exciting and refreshing. The hardest thing to do is to see her gracefully yet boldly come into her teenage years. That’s all we will say about teenage years for now ….. 🙂

Children have no idea how much you love them until you show them with your time.  They understand your presence at there sporting events, PTA Mtgs, School Assemblies, Graduations, Award Presentations, Play Performances, Recitals, Church Gatherings, On Vacation with them, etc. all translate in to “I Love You”. And yes the reverse is true. They understand your absence as, “I have more important things to do”. Express your love and be PRESENT with your child. Help them to understand the Unconditional Love you have for them. While it is true that we can not give what we do not have, begin to understand how much they need you. Should you find yourself in a situation that you have never know a fathers love or a mothers love, then begin to introduce yourself to God who is the father of all. His love for you will give you joy, peace, understanding and put you in a position to love others especially your children in return.

So, the challenge for today is to understand God’s Love toward you. Begin by Loving daily on your child. (your sister, brother, niece, nephew, cousin, etc.)

Marriage & Renovations

What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?

One experienced that completely changed my life has been MARRIAGE! 

I think most married people may answer this question slightly different depending on the day you ask them. For the most part I pray your experience is positive, mine is 🙂

Renovation Time Ugh!

My husband and I were married on Saturday, December 29, 2012; and we hosted our wedding on June 15, 2013. With just over one year on the books I guess you can say we are still living in honeymoon bliss. Nonetheless there is nothing like a real life challenge to heat things up a bit.

On of our favorite networks to watch is HGTV. I know right, who can resist it. A moment that always gets our attention is when the couple says they are going to live in the house while it is being renovated……Noooo we tell them. However they can’t here us. Living in your home while it is being renovated is challenging. Low and behold this is exactly the place we have found ourselves; living through a renovation. As the pictures will show the renovation has taken over the entire house. We are having our bathroom done and hallway and hall closet and bedroom closet and a built-in bedroom bookcase. 

Renovations Ugh!

Back to the Marriage. We have determined and stated to one another: knowing that our relationship can not only survive this, but also get stronger in this process, we can live through anything together. The Bible says one can put a thousand to flight, and two can put ten thousand to flight. We contend that we are “The Two.” Standing together and standing for God, while literally, being in the midst of it all!

Stay tuned for completion pictures. They will be sure to knock your socks off! 🙂 

Taking It All In

You were here and now your gone your memory with me will forever live on. A Legacy you left with me one that I will always see! A part of my present and my past but it’s in my future where your life will last.

Your impressions on my heart will never be erased for you my father I embrace: your smile, your love, your jokes, and respect, I am the luckiest kid on that you can bet. Oh how I wish to sum it up, only too few words could never detect, all you’ve given over the years: your money, your time and even your precious tears.

A Legacy of Fun, Love & Respect!

While your soul may be at rest your life in me lives on. . . . I AM GRATEFUL
