Romans 12 - a thought for the day


Photo Shoot

We had a photo shoot over the weekend and it was great fun, I was enjoying the new adventure with my sister and mom, my daughter and step daughter and not forgetting my sexy nice.  My daughter arranged this day for us and we had a whale of a time.
making memories was nice!
we are grateful to spend time with my mom and with the family.
How awesome it is to see how we all have grown.

Step Mom

As a step mother I feel so inadequate and most of the time I feel not worthy.I cannot imagine why God would let me be a step mother to another woman’s children.Today I am a step mother looking after two young children with totally different values and points of view.You may think you know what your future holds for you, my goodness only God knows.God knows where you will be in 10 years’ time and you hope you will be were you need to be in 10 years’ time.My only prayer would be Lord please guide me and direct my steps, I cannot do this on my own.Thank you for a wonderful husband who understands me and appreciates the fact that I am not perfect.I sometimes wonder if he doesn’t just want to run away and hide from me.I feel like a dragon on fire when things don’t go the way I plan them and explode on many occasions.You cannot believe how easy that is for me.Other people simmer and stay quiet me on the other than, I can explode in minutes and get it off my chest in that minute. Please Lord …

I have to learn to like myself.

For as long as I can remember I have been told how fat I am, how lucky I am to find a husband, how lucky I am that someone actually cared about me and married me.So many years have passed and I kept on believing that I am fat, that I am ugly and not attractive.Then I got divorced and I lived alone with my three children for a couple of years.
My perception of myself isn’t that great I still struggle with my self-image and I still fall flat on my face on a regular basis.My husband is wonderful, he never ever tells me that I am fat or unattractive or stupid.He constantly reminds me of his love for me and he constantly tells me how great I look.He looks at me with loving eyes and helps me with everything. He basically carries me on his hands.
Because of my rebellious self I need to learn how to speak to myself softly, remind myself that I am worthy of his loving kindness.I need to remind myself that I don’t have to go through any situation alone and that I have someone like him to love me …

Our Father

How indescribable is our Father God.God knows each one of us by name, He knows our daily needs.Reading this passage in the Amplified Bible – Matthew 7: 11 ‘If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!’
When thinking of the needs of my children I know that they need to eat and I also know that they need a warm house to come home to.I know they need to grow up in a friendly and homely environment.I also know they have school needs which have to be addressed.They also have heart desires and wishes that need to be addressed.Sometimes I give them their hearts desire and wishes when they come to me asking what if they could have this or that.I have also learned that yes there are many requests and some of them are just not good for them and I don’t allow it.I tell them no, you cannot have this or that because of …
