The Guidelines for Life, I call it… E-mail from Mom

Someone has written these beautiful words.  It’s a must read.
They are like the ten commandments to follow in life all of the time!

Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is
a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout the journey.

So why is a car’s windshield so large & the rear view mirror so small?  Because out PAST in not as important as our FUTURE.  So, look ahead and move on.

Friendship is like a BOOK.  It takes a few minutes to burn, but it takes years to write.

All things in life are temporary.  If going well, enjoy it, it will not last forever.  If going wrong, don’t worry, it can’t last long either.

Old friends are Gold!  New friends are Diamond!  If you get a Diamond don’t forget the Gold!  Because to hold a Diamond, you need a base of Gold.

Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!”

When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesnt’ solve your problems, He has faith in your abilities.

A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing your sight?”  He replied, “Yes, losing your vision!”

When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you’re safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES,,,,, it takes away today’s PEACE!

Live simply.  Love generously.  Care deeply.  Speak kindly.  Leave the rest to God!

Necessary

Why do you feel it
necessary
or feel justified

When you advocate
that killing police
should even be tried?

Randomly select
an innocent man
and shoot him’s not “bad”

Go take another’s life
to retaliate
just because you’re mad?

What of these 5 men?
Guilty of nothing
to murder about

Keeping people safe
while protesting them
when the shots rang out

Not even thinking
killing them was wrong
tells a whole lot

Like morality
common courtesy
and right or wrong’s forgot

Calculating ones
who go run their mouths
I feel are to blame

They’re just pretending
they aren’t prejudice
what a crying shame

When all the power
to end this madness
lays right in their hands

They would much rather
lay the guilt on whites
for none understands

Since slavery days
the plight of the blacks
hasn’t changed at all

And black lives matter
so shoot up the streets
and watch the cops fall

That makes us even
for offenses committed
two hundred years ago

But we weren’t alive
to own any slaves
or injustice show

Consider that without
rose-colored glass
come on now get real

I will stand behind
the ones dressed in blue
’cause that’s how I feel!

Calling Out to My Praying Friends

Hello dear friends!  September was a busy month for many reasons, some good and some bad.

In  addition to dad, Shawna and Blaine having their birthdays; Sara gave birth to her first child, Sebastian Lee, weighting 7# 1oz, 19″ long, on Sept. 17th.  She and her fiance are thrilled with their little cutie pie:

That was the good news!

A week or so after that we found out that Mark’s dad has a fast growing cancer in his throat.  Specifically, in the lymphnoid just below his esophygas which feeds all the others below it.

I am asking everyone to say a pray for him, please. 

The first of October I lost my best friend, Penny!!  Those of you who have been with me for a while know who she is and just how much I loved her.  It was a total shock and I am still processing  it.  The grief has been overwhelming to me.  I am praying that if God intends to take Al from us too that he waits for a minute or two so I can get my breath.

When things like this happen, always ask God what it is that He is preparing me for that requires me to be so strong?  With everything happening in the world right now I’m not sure I want to know the answer to that question, but that’s a discussion for later on.

Please keep us in your prayers!
Love and blessings to you all!
Terri

Some New Pictures to Share

Hi everyone!  My hand is healing slowly and it still is hard to type but I thought I had better jump on here and let you know that I am alive, lol..  I’ve been doing well with my sales at the local hand made  shop, yippee!  I even had a commission for a candle holder to encase the large sized Yankee candle order and she was so thrilled with it that she promised to be back for more.  Lucky me, I have recently had the pleasure of shingles for the second time 😦

Please say a prayer for my eldest brother, Kevin, the one with cancer.  He has been in the hospital for a week now.  He went in with pneumonia, original diagnosis, but now they can’t figure out why he is so sick.

I have some new pic’s of the grandkids and the latest masterpieces I’ve created, also a few that are still not quite finished.  I’m most proud of my owls, my new style of dragons and the one for Sara to give her boyfriend for his birthday..  🙂  Much love and many blessings to you all!!  Terri

The Moment is Right

This is to my immediate family as well as to all of you – my cyber family!!  Thank you for all of the support you have given us over the past year (or I should say the past 4 years!!)  I love and appreciate you all.  May God bless you richly, keep you safely in the palm of His hand and grant you the Merriest Christmas ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – along with a Happy New Year too 🙂  xxxxxxxxxxxxx o

(BTW:  Mark just got his third opinion last week, that doctor concurred with the first two and their diagnosis. 😦  BUT, we will not allow it to dampen our Holidays.  I plan on enjoying however much time God grants us together; hoping and praying for another miracle Christmas like the one He gave us a few years back when my brother wasn’t supposed to live long enough to see the day and we still have him!!)
