On the surface that sounds good. I mean, no more having to wake up extra early on a Saturday for practice (softball, baseball, basketball, football, etc.). I used to dread it as well but now i am beginning to realize just how precious this moment is. One day they will grow up and move on. The craziness of the schedule will be gone only to be left with quietness. Take advantage of the time spent with your kids. It goes away and once its gone, you are only left with the memories. Trust me, I am midst of this surreal feeling right now. God Bless. PJSLB
The word of God has really helped me this week. I am in a place right now where i just want to give up. I am frustrated in doing my best and never seeing success come from it. The Bible this week was my “getting talked off the ledge” moment. Thank you lord for allowing me to vent and instilling in me a level of peace that can only come from you. PJSLB
This was a text message i sent to family and friends earlier this afternoon. I wanted to send it to all my brothers and sisters in Christ. It was then that i realized that ALL OF YOU ARE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST. It is with that sentiment that i ask for your prayers tonight. I humbly ask that you lift me up and that the Holy Spirit show up and show out! Thanks. Below is the text i sent earlier:
Sorry for the mass email but I need prayer warriors! The prayers have helped in the past with the move and new house. I know that prayer works! There is an opportunity presented with a university here that despite all understanding, I have gotten this far in the hiring process. The Holy Spirit has lined up everything. I claim this position as Director of ####### ####### boldly and I ask that in your conversations with God, you claim if for me as well. I am not ashamed to ask my brothers and sisters in Christ for this as I would do it for you in a heartbeat as well. Thanks everyone!
I am waiting. I have been patient. I have followed your word. I do what is right and when I fall, I am quick to get up and ask for forgiveness. When others are down and confused, I am quick to be their support. I have been called blessed. I have been called fortunate. I have been charitable in your name. I have done good deeds to honor you. I am your brother…I am your son.
