How did John know that in the 21st century, at the beginning of a new millennium,
Our lives would be so Busy,
Our schedules would be so Crammed,
Our focus would be so Divided,
Our bodies would be so Tired,
Our minds would be so Bombarded,
Our families would be so Attacked,
Our relationships would be so Strained,
Our churches would be so Programmed,
That we would be desperate for the simplicity and the purity, the freedom and the fulfillment, of “Life in His name?”

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
By: Mother Teresa
~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
(August 26, 1910 – September 5, 1997)
Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, she was an Albanian Roman Catholic nun with Indian citizenship.
In 1950, Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (Calcutta) in India. For over forty five years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries.
*I really enjoy anything that Mother Teresa writes, it is Pure Simplicity. Especially for anyone like myself that has a hard time understanding and following the use of Large words :)
I hope you find God and inspiration in this poem.
The Lord our God will say to us
To not limit what He can do
For He is a God of the unlimited
There’s nothing He can’t do through you
For God is doing a new thing
In our lives, today, this hour
To raise us up to be His army
Clothing us with His power
Remember not the former things
The things that are in the past
Behold, He is doing a new thing
And will capture human hearts
It’s time now to go out and gather
In the harvest of the Lord
For there are many whose souls are ready
More than we’ve known before
So take His light into those places
Of darkness and misery
That they may know the God of love
To give hope and a destiny
Then they may shine right where they are
So others may come to the light
And they in turn may come to know
The saving grace of Christ
Then Jesus’ light may radiate there
Like a beacon in the night
No longer groping in the darkness
But shining forth God’s light
May the spirit of God arise in you
And empower you much more
So His glory may be seen with you
As you proclaim the risen Lord

*I found this poem, and I gave it to a few young ladies at their passage into womanhood. I really felt God in this poem, and wanted to share it with whoever come across my blog.
*We, the Church are in one of the Biggest Spiritual Wars that we will face. The Spirit of this Age is calling out to us to join with them! But We must stand strong for those we Love.
*And we need no to put off anything that has been given to us to do, because Now is the Time to do what God has given us.
*7 out of 10 of your problems will disappear, if you did the things God is Asking you right Now.

Have you been encouraged of how you are raising your children?
And what a difference has been noticed?
Well, I was given that chance...from Tina, a friend that I truly admire.
Tina, you do not know how much that touched me. Thank-you so much.
What Tina had spoke to me a week ago, was that she has noticed how well Subria is doing, and that we were doing a good job at raising her. And that it has been noticable. It really meant a lot to me, being so young in the whole raising children area; that it really made me to want to go after spiritual ladies and get wisdom from them.
And I want to thank everyone that has been in my life, from childhood into marriage
Thank you all!
Here is a quote that I saw awhile ago, and I laughed at it just thinking, how true it was.
"They say, "It takes a Village to raise a child", only they never told me where to find the place!" (Now, picture a young woman holding a baby in a car with her diaper bag, and looking at a map.) I found it very amusing and thought provoking, What if there really were young mothers wandering around, wanting help with raising their little one? Would you help, or just brush them off?

Just a follow up from my post of Dec 14th.
I did notice how little she was pulling on her ear, after two days. And Subria told me it was all better.

I am not sure how to sum up my last two months, but I will try.
Generally, I am one who really focuses on getting something done, IF I put my mind to it. But in that I am really finding that I hurt people around me, with the personality that I have. And thinking about it, I look in my famous Bible and Something jumped out at me. It totally explains what I have been doing, and after reading the study topic and the Bible passage, I do not think I want to continue in that way...Rather choose to be different.
~A Life of Purpose~
If your life were condensed into a short synopis - one brief sentence - what would be said of you? How our lives are summarized depends on the choices we make each day. We have a tendency to be distracted with the cares and responsibilites of life. Laundry piles up. Bills need to be paid. Children get sick. As we care for our families and do our work, it's easy to become sidetracked from our primary purpose: pleasing God. It is easier to give lip service to spiritual things than to stay on course, keeping in step with the Spirit.
So how will you be remembered? What will be said of you? Most important, how will God Summarize your life?
Just a few questions:
What is one sentence you could use to summarize your life so far?
What might God want to change in your life so that your life summary will be different?
What steps will you take today to walk in God's way?
Word to take with you today: Purpose (Although I think it should be, God's Purpose)
Now I hope to post more this week, I should be better at staying on track. It really is amazing to wonder what God does think of you and what you are doing. It very eye opening to read that passage. You can do everything you are "Supossed to do" and not be doing God's Purpose. That is something I need to really focus on.
I hope this is encouraging to you as well as I found it to be...
