I’m a living testimony
If I only listened to those who said I would was not going back to college after I had my first son…….
If I had to listen to those people after I went through this or that…….
If I decided to give up when people turned their back when needing them most……
When man says no, or judge you for mistakes or bad choices God still says YES!!!
FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION…….. NEVER GIVE UP!!!
SHARE THIS WITH SOMEONE YOU KNOW WHO NEED A PICK ME UP 😘
I wanted to share and something to think about. I’ve been guilty!
Four of the Ten Commandments deal with our relationship to God while the other six deal with our relationships with people. Relationships, not achievements or acquisition of things, are what matters most in life. So why do we allow our relationships to get the short end of the stick? Busyness is a great enemy of relationships. We become preoccupied with making a living, doing our work, paying bills, and accomplishing goals as if these tasks are the point of life. They are not. The point of life is learning to love- God and people. Life minus love equals zero. Love leaves a legacy.
When life is ending, people don’t surround themselves with objects. What we want around us is people- people we love and have relationships with. In our final moments we all realize that relationships are what life is all about. Wisdom is learning that TRUTH SOONER rather than Later.
The more time you give something, the more you reveal its importance and value to you. If you want to know a person’s priorities, just look at how they use their time. Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you will never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.
It is not enough just to say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are WORTHLESS.
The essence of love is not what we think or do or provide for others, but how much we give of ourselves. Men, in particular, often don’t understand this. Many have said to me, “I don’t understand my wife and kids. I provide everything they need. What more could they want?” They want you! Your eyes, your ears, your time, your attention, your presence, your focus–your time. Nothing can take the place of that.~ Rick Warren What On Earth Am I Here For
We can’t replace the time we take away from our loved ones, especially our children. They are only children once and for a short period of time…. Real Talk!!!
Today my teenage daughter and I started with a 1.2mile run which is part of our 40 day spiritual and physical transformation. As a family we are reading Rick Warren’s book, What On Earth Am I Here For?. To help with our physical well being I purchased a lot of foods that is supposed to be beneficial to me according to my blood type. The plan is for the spiritual+mental+physical= transformation. Today I stand at 169lbs and 5’5″. The goal is to weigh 159 by mid April. The journey begins!!! 🙂
Involving my children in various aspects of my life has led to a closer family unit.
