Good Friday Morning, everyone.. This week flew by, but then again at my age the days do fly past. all but January and February for some reason. The coldest months here in Alabama, and they drag on for days and days it seems.Spring/ Summer is my favorite seasons, although I was born in December I do not like Winter at all.. Over the years I have tried and tried to embrace Winter, for it’s peaceful rest and stillness. It’s a little bit better, but I still look forward to each new Spring. Just a bit about me, I am 57 a Mother of two boys, ages 36 and 30. A wife to Mr Shabby, over well over 30 years. And a Nana to three wonderful grandchildren.. I’ve always had a heart that felt others pain, and had empathy for those around me. But, it wasn’t until I got older that really I understood what it was that God wanted me to do. You know, our purpose for being here. Our purpose in this life here to me, isn’t for ourselves. But finding that purpose, our gifts, and then giveaway them ALL away to those in need.
Have I always been understanding of others, nope. As a matter of fact I use to complain years ago, Lord why do you put these people I do not know in my path? I have my own problems, I don’t know them from Adam, what is it that you want from me?? Yep, I sure did, it bothered me and I didn’t like it at all to be honest.. I was all about ME!! It was about the time I started this page that it hit me one day, God said , Debbie, I send them your way because all of your sorrow, and trials, and blessings I gave to you, to share with those that need to hear a word of Hope, inspiration. Many times the Lord said to me I have placed angles in your path to comfort you in your times of distress. Now, it’s time for you to “Listen” “Share” and show some “Love” and “Hope” do not Judge, least you be Judged Debbie. For the world is filled with those in need, and those to comfort. I tell you, when I finally got it, I was on it.. I could not wait for those folks I had complained about about to the Lord for years to come my way, again. This time my heart was right with the Lord, and I was ready for the challenges he had been preparing me for all those years. Do you know what gifts our Lord God has given to you? what your purpose is, here on this earth. Each one of us are given gifts (talents) a purpose in this life. Don’t go looking for it, trust me it is right in front of you, just open your HEART! If will come to you, and you will say oh my goodness, I had NO idea!
Sometimes when we struggle with our own identity, and in my younger years I did, for a couple of reasons. I have shared those here on my blog, we allow others to run over us, treat us in ways that are not acceptable.. But, when we finally get to where God needs us to be, the respect comes out of know where, and we learn what is now acceptable is all we will stand for.. I think it takes some of us longer to see what the Lord has planned for us, because we are allowing things around us to take place that are not acceptable for so many reason.. Once we realize our true worth, and what God feels about us, mighty things happen, and changes take place. I now know that the Lord has a plan for me, that I have a heart that cares, and wants to help others. That I am a child of God, and he is my heavenly Father, my provider, and my guide through this journey, the one we call LIFE. Blessings to each one reading this, I hope that you find your path, and stay on it..
