Finding out!

Wow, am amazed what I am becoming in light of God’s will and ways for my life…

Since being unable to access the net for a couple of weeks I have found that I am so hungary to learn!!

I have been to our local library and signed up for maths and IT and French courses whoo hoo…

This is fun and I feel all of it has been directed by my heavenly Father…Thank you lord…

Watch this space..

tis a funny old day!

Goodness me, the Lord does work in mysterious ways!

I was contemplating how time is running by the other day and how little of it I seem to have …been too busy doing things that distract – me thinks!!!

Anyways to cut long story short I cancelled my ISP as they have really been a pain the last few months and so we are without the net at home…well suddenly I have loads of time!! So am here in a library using some of it up! heehee

Seriously, tho, it made me think how little time recently I have been giving to God, my Lord and Saviour…o dear!!

Anyways, I am excited that the Lord is doing great things in me and am blessed that he alone knows what I do and don’t need!!

Have a great weekedn to those of you who read my thoughts…and be blessed!!

Hugs

Today I was thinking over something I have read and cant find again, typical of this 40 odd year old mother!! lol

It was about what a hug says…

We all need a hug, it tells us how much we are loved, thought of, cared about.

Sometimes words fail us but hugs can say it all.

I love giving hugs, and my children will tell you I am a 100% hugger maniac…

Watch this short video, it really is lovely…AND

Give someone a Hug..make their day and yours!!

Free Hugs

The Power of One

Best Friends…

”Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.”

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, ”Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.” I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friend tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, ”Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives.” He looked at me and said, ”Hey thanks!” There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.

I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home, and I carried his books. He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play football on Saturday with me and my friends. He said yes. We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him. And my friends thought the same of him.

Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, ”Dang boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!” He just laughed and handed me half the books.

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors, began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship. Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak.

Graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than me and all the girls loved him!

Boy, sometimes I was jealous. Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, ”Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!” He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. ”Thanks,” he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began. ”Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach… but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story.” I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met. He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn’t have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. ”Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.”

I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize it’s depth. Never underestimate the power of your actions.

With one small gesture you can change a person’s life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each other’s lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others.

“Never let a problem to be solved become more important than the person to be loved.”

A quote by Barbara Johnson..

 I was kind of thinking that sometimes we can have so many things going on in our lives and in those we love but we cant lose sight of the fact that any problem is solveable when we have Jesus, and any person is loveable too…

My train of thought goes to my son, who at this moment in time has been living a prodigal life..am praying for him.

Help me Lord to remember to look beyond the problems and see him in his dire need!!
