Time cannot be halted
In its swift and endless flight
For age is sure to follow youth
Like day comes after night.
Helen Steiner Rice
Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
Psalm 71:9 NIV
My still young soul is having problems with my rapidly aging body again. It seems that just when I have it all together, I find I’m not at all together.
It seems to me that if we all can remember to just love then we will be living the way we were meant to live.
If we all can remember to just love then we will be doing what God wants us to do.
If we all can remember to just love then it will not matter how many times we forget to dust or buy a loaf of bread.
It is what we are here for. It is what we are made for.
When we lose track of the "why" behind the "what" of each day. We don't have a way of prioritizing and ordering our task lists and our life's goals. We become buried under an avalanche of "to do's" and appointments without a reason or purpose for the whole burdensome schedule
For quite a few years now I’ve learned to put my trust in God for what is needed in my life. The tragic death of my DDH left me without much of anything. I had children to support and raise and I had a very low paying job. The wonderful thing is that God has always provided.
In coming to know Him better, we will find Him gently nudging us, revealing new insights to us, and opening doors of opportunity for us. Being rooted in faith gave me the strength needed to heal and recover from the adversities I faced I constantly look for ways to lift my self up when ever I feel down. But the devotionals, articles, and even books by my favorite authors -- are only supplemental
Believe that you deserve to be happy right now. Do not defer happiness a moment longer. Find joy in what you do every day
Let's appreciate our blessings and treasure them -- those that come to us, big and small, verbal and non-verbal. Let's not forget to thank those who blessed us with these treasures and let's share these same kinds of treasures with others
They say that women who know and practice their beliefs are more comfortable with who they are and the purpose for their lives.The more defined your values and ideals are the more committed you’ll be to living up to them. I’m hoping that as I grow older, I’ll be able live up to those principals more and more.
Some people are working backstage,
some are playing in the orchestra,
some are on-stage singing,
some are in the audience as critics
and some are there to applaud.
Know who and where you are.
Just because it has taken a long time, or because you’ve tried and failed, don’t give up on those dreams. Every dream that’s in your heart, every promise that has taken root, God not only put it there, but He has every intention of bringing it to pass.
Words truly written from my heart to yours,
Pam (mostly known as MA)
