Yours Truly

I started this blog several years ago as an outlet. To whomever reads my blog, I hope you are encouraged. I do my best to keep it short, so it can be a breath of fresh air.

Your Lamp

We had a great church service at Solid Rock in New Jersey. Bro. Wynn preached on letting go and trading your burdens with God. When we give our situation to God he takes care of it. It was a good weekend in NJ. As we were traveling back home to NY, I was looking at what is going on in the world. It's looking more and more like we are getting closer and closer to the Lord's soon retun. It's very easy to get distracted and consumed by all the events taking place. We need to be on our knees in prayer and keeping our focus heavenward. If we are not careful our lamps will run out and we will find ourselves empty and missing out and on the Lords return. I can not and will not get pulled into debates. I will not take the anger bait. Jesus came to seek and save the lost. I must be careful to not lose sight of what matters most and that's keeping my focus on Jesus. God is good.

Love As A Christian

The world is watching as America has another heartbreaking instance of life lost due to hatred in the heart of man. I don't agree with what has taken place. If I am to be a follower of Christ, I am to love. This means the extra step of loving everyone, even the ones who have been at the heart of this horrible day in America. I don't condone it and I refuse to let if cause me to let bitterness to take place in my heart. I will fight back by teaching my son to show kindness and love. To not be afraid to stand on Christian principles. To be a light of Christ wherever he goes. This world needs Jesus, America needs Jesus. I believe we are in the last days. I refuse to be unkind and not love my fellow mankind. Not one is better than the other. I challenge you to love one another, show compassion and forgive. Do not let hatred take root in your heart. God is still good.

Summer Busy

It dawned on me that I have not blogged in several days. RJ and I had a wonderful and love filled week in California. We came home to NY and unpacked to pack again for one more summer weekend in NJ. I'm thinking we are going to need at least a week at home of doing "nothing" to get back on NY time and a routine. It's been a good summer and I'm almost to the point where I'm ready for school to start again. Many good memories have been made. A deeper walk with God has been established. All in all it's been a summer of growing. God is good.

Alexis and Mathew

Twenty years ago a sweet little girl by the name of Alexis was born. She was blessed because her mom had three sisters who loved this little girl a great deal. We rocked her to sleep when she was a baby and spent countless hours doting on her. This morning, came together again to dote on her as she prepared for her wedding day. Watching her walk down the aisle brought tears to our eyes. Mathew is a good guy and we know our girl is in good hands. I love her dearly and am so glad to have been a part of her special day. Wishing you all the best to Alexis and Mathew. God is good.

Ready To Go

I unpacked from NAYC and then packed again for California. My niece Alexis is getting married and my awesome husband made a way for RJ and I to go. It's times like these that I love airline miles. I was there when Alexis was born and I'm excited to be there when she is married. It's going to be wonderful to be with family again. We also received news that a new niece has been added to the family. We congratulate Tim and Claudia on their new little baby. She is beautiful. God is good.
