Guarding my heart today as my parents prepare to leave

My mom and dad have been here for a month and I had a blast having them. I loved the joy they bring to my family and seeing joy in their eyes as well. I am so sad that they are leaving tomorrow. It breaks my heart. Today above all the the verse above really applies to me. I need to focus on God, his plans, and trust that all will be okay. PJSLB

Being persistent with God

I remember as a child wanting a Nintendo entertainment system. My mom would say no but that never stopped me from asking. I was not deterred with all the “no’s.”

On my birthday I opened my gift only to see the one thing that I have been asking for the longest time…a Nintendo Entertainment System!

I was persistent and kept asking my mom even when I knew she would say no. But my mom and her love for me chose the perfect time to give the thing I wanted more than anything.

Why is it that when we ask God for something and we do not receive it immediately, we give up asking? If our earthly parents would give to us then surely our Heavenly Father would do a million times more. KEEP ASKING! PJSLB

The Sorrow of Christmas

Christmas is full of joy and laughter. A chance to be with family, friends and loved ones. Christmas is also a time of painful goodbyes and memories of years past.

This past month my parents came over for the holiday season and after not seeing them for over two years, I had such fun having them around. This morning I dropped them off to the airport so they can play “tourist” for a week; visiting some beautiful places out country has to offer. Although, I will see them in a week my heart still hurts.

When enjoying the Holiday season with your loved ones, keep an eye out on those who are missing someone. Be compassionate and be a keeper of you fellow brothers and sisters. God Bless. PJSLB
