Blah Days and Disappointments.......

This last week I kind of been away from the blogging world.  I did not post nor did I visit my usual blogs.  I have had some "blah" days.  I just felt overwhelmed by life and stayed on the couch most of the time.  I did go dog sit for my sister-in-law, but that was about all I did last week.  Do you ever have those days?  No matter what I couldn't shake it.   Then today I had 2 disappointments.  Oh well, life isn't always a bowl full of cherries, huh?  Today, I visited "my" blogger buddies and hopefully I will keep back on track with my blogging.   Do you ever fall off the blogging wagon?  I hope everyone has a great week.   GOD is still in control!!!

Brad Paisley.......

Sometimes we all feel unimportant at times, but there is someone who thinks you are the world.  It could be your kids, your husband/wife, your parents or even a friend (of course, we can't forget that GOD thinks the world of you).  So don't be discouraged.  Know that you are important in some one's world

Romans 8 38-39......

Romans 8: 38-39

        For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers,nor things present nor things to come,

     Nor height nor depth,nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What a wonderful promise God has made to His Children!  Even when we think we have been separated from God,  we know His Word is true.  Thank you Jesus!!

Some people have it and some people don't.  I am one of those people that don't.  Is it genetic?  Was it how I was raised? No! I'm not blaming my mother.  Ha Ha!  But what causes people to be more inclined to have it over others.  I desperately want it.  I have so much that I could get accomplished if I had it.  Do YOU have self-discipline?  How can I create it in me?  What can I do to instill it inside myself?  Any suggestions?  I need HELP!!!

Happy Sunday.....

I Samuel 16:7

     But the Lord said to Samuel,
                                   " Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his statue, because I  have refused  him.  For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

What does your heart look like????

Forever in my heart.....

September 2, 2009 was a sad day in my house.   Our beloved pet died.  She was a sweet dog.   She was the Best dog.  She had such an amazing personality.  Although it's been 2 years, I still miss her greatly.  Below are some pics of my "Baby"
