Black Friday

Today’s news
It’s hard to Breathe today.

It’s hard to breath when you know that someone you love is leaving or has left this life.  It’s hard not to weep, it’s hard to not be filled with thoughts about everyone who She has touched in her life time. It’s hard not to think about how much you love her and how much she has blessed your life and how amazing you think her life has been in your eyes.  Grandma Vela my grandma is about to leave her cursed body behind. I’m glad of this at least, it’s hard to see her struggle with the pain that is inflicting her hard to see her so bound by this body that is failing her that has stopped working.  

Today I remember the fear in her eyes as I sat with her in her hospital bed, this past weekend and I remembered something she would say to me over and over again, “if it weren’t for Jesus Christ I would not have gotten through this life.”  I never really saw her fear growing up, I know it was there though, and now I see more clearly how much Our Heavenly Father has been my Grandma’s help and courage when she has faced the hardest parts of this life.  I can see Him now calling her home.  Even now he as sent his angels to sing to her as she goes through this death.  I love her my Grandma, and I will miss her.  But I do not weep without hope that I will see her again in the next life!

Before I left the hospital on Sunday, I bent down and hugged her and kissed her, I whispered to her that I hoped and prayed she could go home soon.  Part of me hoped and prayed that it might be her earthly home, but I see now that it was her heavenly home that I was hoping and praying for.  She is going to be well soon! 

Please pray for us my family as we walk through this and are even now waiting for her to leave, all her Children will be with her tomorrow I hope.  I pray!

Today’s news First things first! It’s Monday morning, the beginning of the work week. It’s another start to something.  Our life is full of starts and finishes. We start a new week, we start a new weekend, we start a new day, we start a new pot of coffee, we start a new load of laundry and so on and so forth. With all these starts there are a whole lot of opportunities to add a conversation, a prayer to our God.  I love this idea. In all the starts of each day, I will acknowledge Him and lift a prayer, or remember something He has said in His word, Or, in that moment of start, I could worship Him or thank Him. I’m going to challenge myself with this, (and I’m going to challenge all of you to the same). And remember there are always new places to start this challenge.  A nourished life is one that starts by putting ones self into a position to listen to what our God and Creator has to say.  And, we are able to stand before our holy righteous God because of His Son, who was both God and Man…

Today’s news “Remain in me, and I will remain in you.” -John 15:4
When I don’t know what to say or what to do, when fear feels like it’s about to consume my body, the place I must go is to God, in his word and on my knees.  On most every day I start in His Word, in his scripture and messages for us.  “ For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;  it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”               -Hebrews 4:12,13
Today I spent time in Proverbs 14 I have been struggling with my own foolishness lately. Especially the way I spend my money foolishly and unwisely. I hate myself for it and I struggle with changing my actions. It is an outright battle waging within me.  I pray and cry out to God to make it easy, but even as I pray that I …
