Don’t judge me to hurt me, or hate me,

but judge me to love me, to know me,

to bring the best me forward.

Don’t judge me to hurt me, or hate me,
but judge me to love me, to know me,
to bring the best me forward.
Don’t judge me to hurt me, or hate me,

but judge me to love me, to know me,

to bring  the best me forward.

 

 Wellness

Yeah to April it’s here and soon we will celebrate Earth Day so I am looking forward to that. Also in this month I am going to dedicate some words I used everyday, that really don’t make sense like OMG and OG or Jesus this and that. Every little thing that goes wrong these words come flying out, like if I am walking and I stamp my foot or I saw something in a store, these are the first words that comes to mind and I find it very dramatic. So I have to try and stop saying them.

I did a DMV practice test on-line and I went on Tuesday and took the test and pass. So I should start learning to drive soon I think, in my mind I see myself parking but not driving I am a very good parker in my mind. My hd double park one day and I was alone a spot came vacant and I couldn’t move the car. So embarrassing, I will learn just to get myself out of situation like that. Have a great weekend and remember God is good all the time. 

Love Thy Neighbor 

Sometimes I feel like just leaving everything and going somewhere quite, and starting all over again. But I know that can never happen, or maybe it can I don’t know but what I do know is,  I can only start to live in the moment each day so that’s what I am trying to do but it’s hard. And I say that because I find there are not much people you can talk to about our lord and really have a good conversation about him. This world is full of temptation and it’s our cross we have to walk everyday but, we do need some help. Each day we face a lot, and when you go home and close that door what is it you are thinking about? Do you play your day in your head or you think about what you should have done different?  When you meet someone for the first what is it you talk about? Is it about the lord Jesus cause that will be crazy. Try this the next time you meet someone or trying to befriend a person or just in general, make your first topic about God, or at the end of your conversation say God bless, look at it like you trying to find a connection with this person through God. Every one of us will say I am my own person and I think for myself, but when you look at it we are all followers of something , what are you a following?  The person next to you, busy trying to look like the next person or god?  As I say we need one another. Ask yourself what can I do to  help my neighbor? Getting them something to eat? Take care of the poor? Taking the time to really listen to someone? And when you do, will you take it to the  grave or will you tell the first person you meet ? When I was younger I had a friend in my class, and I ask my mother if I can give her something, and she said if you are going to do this you can’t let your four fingers know what your thumb is doing, and I say ok because I understand what she were saying. So what are you willing to do each day in living your best life on this earth ? Every morning look in the mirror and ask as a child of God what can I do for my neighbor today. God is good all the time.

     

       A  Pray of Repentance

Psalm 51King James Version (KJV)

51 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

 


 

Confession    

 I am coming to the end of lent in preparation of the celebration of Easter. It’s a time for baptism, joy, life and rebirth. After all the praying and fasting there is one more thing left for me to do, in order to go forward with a clean soul and enjoy every moment in this joyful celebration. I am going to be making my first confession ever, I always do the whole 40 days of lent but never shed myself of my sins. I remember my mom always used to tell us going to school, we don’t have to confess to anyone but God, so when we had confession time I wouldn’t go, but coming back into church and getting to understand more I know now I have to do this. I saw a video of (Archbishop Fulton Sheen) and he was talking about confession and why we should go and he said, when we suppress our guilts it is there for eternity unless it is forgiven, when it is forgiven it’s completely bolted out, well how do we now through the mercy of god and the fullness of faith in christ how are our sins forgiven?  by confession, what is confession? nudity of the souls stripping ourselves of all false excuses and charm pretenses and revealing ourselves as we really are.  I take this as a recycling of our life and a rebirth of a new life, God is good all the time. Have a great Easter.

Salt to tast

Bring to boil the okra and water, as it boil the water will begin to get like glue, pour into a bowl as the liquid and the okra will mix in with the meal. Leaving a little liquid in the pot add the meal and stir until you reach a creamy consistence, then add more of the liquid and meal and stir,  you’ll do this until the liquid is gone , make sure it’s creamy not lumpy because it wouldn’t tast good. served hot right out the pot, this delicious meal is usually served with steamed fish, salt fish , or red herring but I serve mine with a pink salmon sauce.
