Anniversary

 

My husband and I meet fifteen years ago at a park where we took our kids for exercise. I didn’t know at the time we were there for the same reason you see my son was getting a little to heavy and being school was out for the summer I took him there. And he was there for his daughter. We would meet every morning at the park, come to find out we had a little in common I have three kids one girl and two boys, he has one girl. They all born October, two years apart my son the 7th and she is the 8th  which I find was pretty cool, but it didn’t stop their he is July and I am also we are a day apart from each other at first I was like NO!! let me see some document some proof you know because what are the odds you meeting someone like that, but it’s true yeah.I guess God know what he was doing .So today is our anniversary  and I can’t believe it’s been fifteen years already. We went for breakfast this morring and it was nice . Can’t do much because he work till late, but I am going to meet him later with my thermos and have some hot chocolate with cream and do some flash backs on our past God is good.

Connect As One

 Toothless, hair out of place you look different, all of that shouldn’t  matter because that’s not who we are. In this world we chase after lies and love what is worthless, judge each other on appearance and how we live, we never give our neighbor a chance if they don’t look or act like us we turn them away . Before it was hard for me to except someone that was different or I didn’t understand I didn’t want to be around them and I choose not to be bother. 

There are a lot of thoughts I deal with every day, people always say they “have to stay on top of my game” literally , I do because every day is different I could get up this morning and be so happy , my day is bright ahead of me even if you say the worse thing to me, I will smile and say no worries or it could be the opposite, sad and I have no idea what it’s all about. Like a year ago every time I am alone home or close my eyes I will see this man waiting for me I don’t know how I know that he is waiting I just know, at first I was scared, I talk to my friend about it and she didn’t know what to make of it and also I find he was very faint at first but the more I talk about him he would get more apparent , he also would stay in the in between holding his hands drop in front of him and staring at me in the distant.

So one day I was watching tv and I heard Joel Osteen say “what you are thinking do not bring it to light” that’s when I realize it was all in my mind I had to get but into church and I did. I know I have to keep my thoughts fixed on God,  I am confident that everything is going to be ok even if I am sad or thinking to hard about anything I will say to myself it’s going to be ok. And that’s what I live by each and every day. I find now as I’m moving towards God I had to change a lot of things , as you know being of this world the flesh is weak and as much as we try to do right and live by his commandment sometimes  it’s seen so hard and I wonder, how can I give so much power to a diet?  or even going without eating anything sweet for a whole year and can’t commit to  one commandment. So I pray a lot for this and I find comfort in it. I see clearly now,  like I am not mad if any disappointments  come my way I’m very grateful for them and my blessing . I try very hard to be understanding to every one feelings, doing this full me and I am happy in that moment. I dream one day that I was waiting for the train in the station it was an outside over head station and the train was coming towards me but, soon as it gets near it started to crumble the wind was so strong  everything was just crumbling or turning to dust, so I decided to run down the stairs but I couldn’t get out. I try so hard holding on to the walls but the walls started to crumble too and I felt the wind on my skin I got so scared first I was along and I didn’t know what was happening , all of a sudden I was floating in the air and I felt a peacefulness , it was like a very warm peaceful feeling  that take over my body  and right there I wasn’t scare any more all I feel was that peace I didn’t know anything else but that I didn’t remember anything about being scared.  Even when I awake I still feel a little bit of it. So I took that as a sign as no worries everything is going to be ok no matter how things turn out good or better it’s still ok.

To be able to have a conversation with my last son about God and for him to ask me questions about him is my icing on the cake, I see he is finding his way and I know he will be bless. Every time we are together that’s mostly what we talk about I feel so much power we connect on a lot of levels and in the moment everything look bright and I can see a little further. I am getting to understand the way of our father a little more now I know I have a long way but, I’m on my way. When ever we are ready we can follow him it’s all up to us  he don’t  force us , but when the time comes he is there with open arms. His world is one big connection and we all fit in it as one, if only we can find that connection in each other. But until we truly know who we are and our purpose in life then we will love one another as ourself God is great.

Alone Time

Tonight it’s me my PJ Chocolate Truffles and the Hallmark Channel countdown, I’m in a different world. These flowers I had like 3 weeks now and they all die out, but I keep wetting them with cold water and I just love the look vintage.The red rose I had in the freezer for five years now it belong to my sister-in-law, we were all given a red rose at her funeral and I always wanted to do something for her with the rose. I decided to place it with the vintage flowers and it fit perfect. Hopefully it would last a next five years and I would get to enjoy it at every holiday. God is good.

DIY Jewelry Organizer

I’m trying to get organize with my jewelry because I tends to buy too much, sometimes I end up with the some of the same pieces. Also I don’t get to wear most of them because I have them living in a box, and when ever I want to wear one I spend so much time tying to get the knots out it drives me crazy. So I decided to make a jewelry organizer which I will share with you. First you can go with what ever you like but I used wood,  the hooks you can get from any hardware store. The leopard print tissue paper again you can used what ever you want, or you can paint the wood, and don’t forget the glue if you are using tissue paper. Also if you want to be a little more creative you can paint the hooks with any nail polish you have it will be fun I did. After you done all that you can screw the hooks in the wood and hung you jewelry on. Now I don’t spend no time getting my jewelry, and I can hold off buying any more or so I think. God is good.

November

Well hello November I’m so happy you are here, with your ever-changing color of leaves always put me in a good mood for the holidays. This is the time to cool your body down, with some brown sugar honey and peppermint scrub, which will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated, it will also peel off dry skin and smooth you into this crisp weather. I sometimes get lost at this time of year,  it’s like the mysteries of nature while the leaves turning different colors, and everyone a little more cheerful the fruits and vegetable in full bloom. like you know something good is coming and you have to hurry and prepare yourself for it. There’s so much to do in getting  yourself ready.  As a tradition I always buy the Mulling Spices and boil on a low heat, and let me tell you the scent is so nice you will be smiling all the time, that’s one of the first things I do to get me going and also my oolong organic tea which I tend to drink a lot of in the winter. How about you guys let me know in the comments. God is good.
