NO SELF PITY PARTY

11696523_1621330244818937_730254036_n

My youngest son lost his full time job when the plant closed down a few weeks back.

My husband was laid off today.

Found out on my lunch. Told him he could pick me up after work than!~♥

Didn’t need to take the bus…lol

I can always find blessings, even in the worst conditions.

While we were driving home I started to pray.

Started to rebuke too.

Told the enemy he better back off.

No self pity party for us …

You know, we are in the perfect ‘storm’ for a miracle.

S.O.D.

DSCF0704

Simplify.

Organize.

Declutter.

That is what has been going on in my life for the last three years.

Be it with the house, in relationships, work, health.

Everything.

Tomorrow’s supper is all ready.

Does my heart good!~

DSCF0705

Now unto getting 7 batches of sauce in containers to freeze!~

I’m back…lol♥

Yepper, I left here to get those batches into the freezer.

Folded some laundry (which I need to go and put away still).

Finished off a Christmas craft gift and hung it up.

Just because it’s a gift, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it until I wrap it up and put it under the tree♥

For those of you that have been cheering me on, want to let you know I only had a half hour nap all weekend long♥

HOOT HOOT…

I even went to Walmart with hubby and out for coffee with a friend.

Hubby was starting to stress me out at Walmart and I told him if he continued walking and I’m following behind, I would start crying like a baby,which I proceeded to pretend to do.

Low and behold, we are walking by dolls that all proceeded to either laugh or cry.

LOL.

Did that every crack me up♥

Due to physical pain, I cannot walk as fast as I used too.

I have to tell hubby this NUMEROUS times…lol

What a pair we make when we shop together…lol

I would love to have someone follow us and tape our shopping experiences together.

lol…giggling away here.

There was a time way back when, I would just walk out of the store, or he would walk out of the store.

I keep telling God I’m trusting Him but boy oh boy, what a pair hubby and I are.

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

Thank God, THANK GOD hubby and I are working on doing good!~

My youngest son would say why am I thanking God when it’s us doing it?

It’s because of the supernatural power in us that is helping us to do good.

One our own?

 But I need something more! For if I know the law but still can’t keep it, and if the power of sin within me keeps sabotaging my best intentions, I obviously need help! I realize that I don’t have what it takes. I can will it, but I can’t do it. I decide to do good, but I don’t really do it; I decide not to do bad, but then I do it anyway. My decisions, such as they are, don’t result in actions. Something has gone wrong deep within me and gets the better of me every time. Romans 7:17-20 The Message

Well I’m off folks.

Hubby is getting supper ready.

BLT’s and fries!~

DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

11696523_1621330244818937_730254036_n

There are a few of you out there that need this right now.

You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand. Psalm 16:11

The path of living a whole and healthy life doesn’t have excuses.

The path of life wakes up filled with joy in God’s presence.

For those of us that have carried around weight (be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual) we have made a list of excuses. We covered ourselves with denial.

The joy that we seek while being in God’s presence can be covered with guilt and regret.

We need to let go of all those weights so we can hear….

I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people..Psalm 85:8

So what’s God speaking to you? What is He trying to tell you?

DO I MISS IT?

004

This is a picture of me five years ago this month when I had retired from daycare after 20 years and heading out into the ‘real’ world and working here.

Now that I’m here….

004

I get the question if I miss working there.

No.

I miss the interaction with the people, but I don’t miss working there.

I didn’t take this job I have now without a lot of prayer, tears and confirmations that I made the right decision going where I am now.

Whatever you do, do it as service to Him,
and He will guarantee your success.
Proverbs 16:3

This is a journey I am on.

HARD ONE

206727_10152381435935640_1920641675_n

Last night was a struggle for me.

My internet service was down.

Couldn’t get my post up.

Looking at the clock and seeing it was only 6:30 pm and far too early for me to crawl into bed.

I had  already accomplished my cleaning schedule.

I ended up doing some crafts.

Pushed myself to do something productive and stay out of bed.

An hour later I was in bed.

By 8:30 I was sleeping and had a peace filled sleep.

As you can see, the internet is working.

The house was almost in an uproar early this morning because two people want the bathroom.

The oldest person and the youngest person in the house.

I kept my mouth shut.

I prayed instead.

God help us.

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

I believe that. Without a doubt.

When the going is good.

When the going is bad.

God is good.

blessings, angela

 

LOVIN’ IT

002

My answer to when people ask me how I’m liking my job.

I wrote this on Face book early this morning….

“There are days when it’s hard to find blessings in your life.

Those are the days you just dig deeper.”

The customer service that I have now is different than when I worked at Walmart.

Customers don’t swear at us or call us names.

HOOT HOOT♥

I’m thankful for that.

Another difference is I’m serving more people  than when I was working at Walmart.

That means I have to be courtesy and nice ALL DAY LONG….

oh my gosh….it’s a miracle but oh my gosh….lol

So many ask me how can you be so nice?

I tell them I don’t like someone miserable serving me…LOL, so I can’t have attitude towards others in a negative way.

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

I’m not there yet…lol

Just a work in progress.♥

blessings, angela

 

I BAKED

DSCF0701

It’s been awhile since I’ve baked.

It’s  one tradition I pray I keep as long as I can physically do it.

I don’t love baking but I do enjoy it.

I’m going on my fourth week now blogging every day.

My goodness gracious.

Another ‘journal’. ….lol.

Only this one is out there for the world to see.

Wanted to mention, it’s 8 p.m. and I am still not in bed….

hoot hoot…I’m going there now though..lol

blessings, angela

 

WORKING

DSCF0692

Hubby is working on the outdoor decorations and lights,while I’ve been doing some crafts in the house.

Never made it to Church today.

I told hubby I didn’t want to have him have to stop what he was doing to come pick me up.

Another new week is upon us.

Someone mentioned on Face book that it is only 4 Sundays till Christmas.

My house is somewhat ready.

The baking isn’t.

Traditions are changing.

Some get left behind to make room for new traditions.

Some traditions change because the seasons of life change.

Each and every day is a new day upon us.

New challenges, blessings and trials.

Tomorrow is not here and yesterday is gone.

It’s this day.

How am I going to live this day?

Here is hubby preparing for the arrival of Christ’s birth!~

THE LOOK ON MY FACE

017

My supervisor asked me what was up with all the looks I was making with my face.

You know me, gotta keep it real.

“I’m having a panic attack. I had a dream before I even came back here to work, that the customers wouldn’t stop coming and I was stuck here till 7:30 pm.” We closed at 2.

Honestly, it felt good to tell her.

I’m so glad she commented on my behavior….lol♥

Seriously.

FEAR.

Forgetting everything and running.

That is what I have done for a long time when I faced fear.

FEAR.

Face everything and rise.

That’s what I  am in the process of doing now.

I’m not running away anymore.

God has called us to stand our ground warriors.

In love, respect and honor.

By the way, I’m done with my cleaning schedule posts.

I’m just going to ramble now.

blessings, angela

 

TOUCHING BASE

Sitting in bed. Just about ready to do some chilling before going to sleep.

Cleaning schedule is done.

Laundry done.

Kitchen is a mess. Hoping hubby will clean up the supper dishes.

Not much to say today except I’m keeping on track….
