Looking Back Into My Future

Today is my birthday and the first thought that crossed my mind was to give my Good Good Father my appreciation for the life He has given me.

Looking Back Into My Future

Good morning Father

This is the day that you have made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

This is the day July 19 you planned

For my entrance into the earth

At 2:18 am you hit the start button

For me to begin on the journey

Of my purpose and destiny

Sometimes it hasn’t been easy

But you’ve been here for me

To get me back to your path for me

You knew there would be stubborn times

That I would be disobedient

And do my own thing

You’d let me with a watchful eye

You were there to pick me up

Dust me off and love on me

When my stubborn actions

Got me in trouble

To let me know you’ve still got me covered

You’ve been and still are a Good, Good Father

You are true to your word

You never leave me nor forsake me

You take such good care of me

You said I am bound to be blessed

You heap blessings upon me daily

You shower me with gifts and surprises

That turns me into Daddy’s giggly, giddy little girl

I thank and praise you for letting me

End one year and start another with great

Expectations of what you want me to do for you

I do and always will love you

Need you and trust you with

Every beat of my heart

I honor and love you for being my Good Father

Harvest Protectors

Walking through the store I picked out a sign I liked to add to my fall decorations for my home. I noticed Scarecrows and wondered their significance. I heard the Lord say they keep the enemy from stealing your harvest. I immediately bought several as a prophetic act.

The top picture is of the one I have at home where the Scarecrow is protecting my harvest.

The bottom one is my display at work where I’m sharing harvest blessings with joy.

May Harvest Blessings Be Yours With Joy!

The Eighth Sin

Remember the seven cardinal sins? You’re given the serious task of adding a new one to the list — another trait or behavior you find particularly unacceptable, for whatever reason. What’s sin #8 for you? Why?

For me sin #8 is Revenge.

It’s a shame that everyone doesn’t comply with the American right to free speech and freedom to do or not do according to their conscience.

Seeking revenge against someone or their business because they don’t believe what you believe has moved up a few notches to #1 in my book.

The saying “Just say no” has become a cardinal sin to some people.

The right thing to do is say thank you and move on to the next place. Not seek revenge because they don’t think or feel the same as you.

Why should a person be sued for their beliefs and have their livelihood snatched from them.

That’s a shame no matter who it is happening to and why.

OLD AIN’T THE END

It seems to be unspoken life rules that infiltrate the subconscious mind concerning retiring and reaching a certain age.

Most of us don’t realize it, but throughout our lives we become programmed to think old is when we reach the sixties. There is also a thought that retiring means you’re old.

I believe both of those preconceived notions are completely wrong.

A lot of people have the privilege of retiring younger than the sixties. So according to the rules the retired person is not old.

Many years ago people in their sixties acted old and looked old. Today that is not the case. If they care for themselves, their age can’t be detected.

God said He would satisfy us with long life. I don’t believe He meant until sixty.

So if you are approaching the sixties, don’t be overcome by thought of sixty being old.

If you are privileged to retire before sixty—bless you and enjoy your life because Old Ain’t The End.

I Release You

I wrote this one day when I was fed up with being held captive by something that had no right or authority over me-fear. I declared that day I will no longer be held in bondage and I was breaking free to be who I was born to be. Today I face any fear that tries to rear its ugly head. I overcome it.

You’ve been with me a long time

Right by my side

Everywhere I go

You cling to me like there’s no tomorrow.

Today I release you

Time to part company

You’re no long my crutch

I will not receive the lies you’ve been feeding me

No longer do I need you to be a part of me

I release you.

Recognize there’s something new about me

I found out today that I could be set free

From the tricks and lies you’ve been handing me

That had me thinking I couldn’t be

All that was prophesied to me

I release you.

My eyes fell upon the Word

That went straight to my heart

It did major surgery

And ripped us apart

It set me free

To be who I’m suppose to be

Today I release you

You have to go

Leave my presence

Don’t come back no more

I will not take you back I’m staying on track

To be who I’m suppose to be

I release you.

KINDNESS

Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

Have you ever heard this saying?

I like to change it up a bit.

Do unto others whether or not they do it unto you.

I call that kindness.

It’s not hard to do.

Don’t take it personal if the one you are kind to isn’t kind to you.

There is satisfaction in knowing you did the right thing.

Your kindness can be a seed you sow into someone’s life.

Although it might not mean anything at the moment,

When the seed starts sprouting it can bring change to that person.

Let doing kindness become a part of you.

Do it unconsciously. Do it well.
