RANDOM STUFF I’D LIKE TO SHARE.

THE LORD’S LOVINGKINDNESSES INDEED NEVER CEASE, HIS COMPASSIONS NEVER FAIL, THEY ARE NEW EVERY MORNING. THIS RINGS LOUDLY IN MY HEART RIGHT NOW, AS I’M ON THE OTHER SIDE OF MY MOMMA’S SURGERY. IT ALL WENT SO WONDERFULLY, I CAN’T DESCRIBE IT IN WORDS. THERE WERE LITERALLY TIMES BEFORE THIS SURGERY THAT I FELT A NEED TO FERVENTLY PRAY, AMONG OTHER THINGS. GOD’S MERCIES IN THIS SITUATION HAVE BEEN SO APPARENT. MY MOMMA AND DADDY HAVE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH, IT’S AMAZING TO SEE WHAT THE LORD HAS LED THEM THROUGH. IF YOU WERE ONE OF THE ONES PRAYING, THANK YOU. PLEASE KEEP DOING SO-- FOR HER AND MY DADDY.

MY WEE LIL’ BABY, WHOM I SWEAR I JUST GAVE BIRTH TO, TURNS THREE TODAY. HOW CAN TIME PASS THIS QUICKLY?? IT’S SO WONDERFUL TO WATCH HIM GROW, YET SO HEARTBREAKING AT THE SAME TIME. THE LORD’S TAUGHT ME SO MUCH THROUGH BEING A WIFE AND A MOMMA. ONE OF THOSE BEING HIS AMAZING LOVE FOR US, AND HOW THERE’S NO WAY WE CAN IMAGINE HOW GREAT IT IS!! ANOTHER THING I’VE LEARNED IS THAT CHILDREN ARE GOOD, THEY ARE BORN WITH SUCH INNOCENCE…..SUCH BEAUTIFUL INNOCENCE THAT CAN OFTEN BE STRIPPED AWAY MUCH TOO EARLY. I’VE SEEN IT HAPPEN TO MYSELF WHEN I WAS YOUNG, AND TO MANY CHILDREN THROUGH THE YEARS. OFTEN, PARENTS AREN’T TRYING TO DO THIS, BUT THEY CAN. MOTHERS, PLEASE LOVE YOUR CHILDREN. THEY ARE GOOD. GOD CREATED THEM GOOD. THEY’RE NOT A BURDEN, AN INCONVENIENCE, OR THIS SINFUL LITTLE CREATURE THAT WE HAVE TO “MAKE” HOLY. SO MANY CHRISTIAN PARENTS FALL INTO THE TRAP OF BELIEVING CHILDREN ARE BORN SINNERS. HOW CAN THAT BE? I HAVE MUCH MORE TO SAY ON THAT ISSUE…THAT’LL HAVE TO BE ANOTHER POST.
BALANCE. HAVE YOU EVER JUST LOOKED AROUND YOU, AT YOUR LIFE? WHEN I SIT BACK AND LOOK AT MY OWN LIFE, AND THE WORLD AROUND ME, IT’S SOAPPARENT THAT THERE NEEDS TO BE GREAT BALANCE. YET THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT ARE LEFT UNBALANCED, SO WE HAVE ALL THE BOOKS TO “TELL US HOW”…HOW TO “BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN”, HOW TO BE A GOOD WIFE, HUSBAND, MOMMY, DADDY, THE RIGHT WAY TO DIET, HOW TO CONQUER DEBT, HOW TO STOP AN ADDICTION…THE LIST GOES ON AND ON FOREVER. TO LARGELY SUM UP MY THOUGHTS ON THIS, I THINK THE LORD GIVES US HIS WORD, HIS SPIRIT, AND OUR BRAINS TO DEAL WITH LIFE!!! (DON’T MISTAKE WHAT I’M SAYING…THERE’S A PLACE FOR LEARNING ABOUT DIFFERENT SUBJECTS, THERE’S A PLACE FOR EDUCATION…BUT OFTEN MANY PEOPLE, NAMELY CHRISTIANS, WANT A BLACK OR WHITE ANSWER, WHEN THERE IS NOT ONE!) I THINK MANY CHRISTIANS CHOOSE TO IGNORE THE BRAIN GOD PUT IN THEIR HEAD (I KNOW I HAVE DONE THIS MANY TIMES!) LET’S NOT FORGET THAT WE ARE CALLED TO LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL OF OUR HEART, WITH ALL OF OUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL OF OUR MIND!!!
THERE ARE SO MANY PICTURES I WANT TO POST, BUT MY COMPUTER’S MESSING UP. I WILL TRY TO SOON!
