One thing I have learned about caring for those I love, is to teach them to care for themselves.
Running a daycare for 20 years, one of my roles was to guide the children to become independent.
Not giving them that helping hand when they were learning to get their shoes on but letting them work it out.
Ya, it was frustrating.
For them. For me…but when the accomplishment came to pass, OH THE JOY.
Caring for those I love means I need to care for myself.
If I am not in a good place mind, body and spirit, that means those around me will not be either.
I’m in a different season in my life where I have to figure out how to take care of myself all over again.
I’m ok with that.
I’m learning to take care of myself so I can care for those around me with love, respect and honor♥
15-17 Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
Colossians 3:15-17The Message (MSG)
I’ve had a ‘story’ to share with all of you.
It’s been tossing about in my head for quite some time now , and it’s finally flowing down through my fingers♥
I am going to be writing about homemaking, and the 10 points that are shared here in this tag.
When I was younger, I never thought much of homemaking.
I believed I would have hired help to do everything, so I didn’t need to learn anything.
Ask my mother!~ lol
Giggling away here at myself.
Looking forward to sharing more with all of you on this journey of homemaking♥
What’s on your agenda today folks?
My agenda is kicking depression’s ass by living my life.
Anyone battling any kind of disease knows that when it’s coming at you full force, there are times when your down, flat out.
Get back up.
Your not alone.
It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:32
Enjoy the video….
My question to God Almighty as I was dealing with this….
Other people’s messes.
At least at work, I get paid for it.
Before I could do my laundry, I had to empty the dryer, and empty the washing machine because someone else didn’t do their job.
Beside the question I had previously written out to God, I later wrote beside it…
I am responsible for me, for my attitude and my behavior.
That is what Abba told me.
This is what I told Him in my journal:
I’m FED UP.
“Beware of paying attention or going back to what you once were, when God wants you to be something that you have never been.” Oswald Chambers.
I’m a warrior princess, daughter of the most high God.
I even have the warrior look♥

With someone in an email on depression.
Depression kills. Plain and simple.
It is not a simple slow death though...
I've learned that we are bigger then depression.
Reason being, I know Who my Daddy is. And no matter what I'm facing, He's called me to face it and rise....
RISE♥ Not be in fear and forget everything and run.....
We need to release those that have hurt us and ignored us in love. Our thoughts towards them need to be of blessings
and not curses.
Does not mean we need to start putting ourselves out there for them? No, it just means we forgive and let those memories
