Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

Trust, Honesty, Respect

There are three qualities to really take note of in an individual, Loyalty, Respect, and Honesty, and that is someone you can truly trust. There is this song, “If you want love” and some of the lyrics are;

If you want love, you gon’ have to go through the pain
If you want love, you gon’ have to learn how to change
If you want trust, you gon’ have to give some away

Comfort in Friendships

I got a message from a friend I have had for over a decade today, and it made me feel better. I was feeling down, because it seems like, no matter what I do, it’s never good enough for my husband. I didn’t talk bad about him, I just told him well I’m not doing well because I think I will be divorced soon. I don’t feel everyone needs to know what is really going on. I do not wish to bad talk him, this is the father of my youngest daughter, and he is still my husband until he is not. From a biblical stand point on marriage. So my friend hits me up and asks how am I doing, and of course not well. This is a friend of mine that has lived in Florida forever, and I am in the Midwest somewhere, so we are not close at all. You do not have to be to be friends, but as I tell him that I am not doing well, he goes on to say somethings that are rather shocking to me.  Continue reading

My Husband, My Lord

1 Pet 3:Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

One of the hardest attacks I have had, was when I decided to call my husband Lord, after listening to a sermon, from one of my favorites, Tony Evans. I thought I would try it out. It was kind of recent, It was actually when I started up this blog again actually. The funny thing is, I thought he would be like, “don’t call me that”, but he wasn’t that way. I don’t think he minded it much, He was mean lol, and it was funny only because I could see the spiritual working already, and it was so fast. It was INSANE! I did write about it, so you already saw I think, how that worked out. But I was driving when I was listening to the sermon, so I didn’t get to read where she called him Lord, and now that I see the whole scripture, I just of course, just had to write about it!  Continue reading

Best Friends

Everything Most I write is mostly about my spouse, and praying for my husband, and what I am going through with him, or what I have been through. Today I am going to be praying for my besties. I was going to write this a while ago, and I held back only because my BF1 sent me a screenshot of a FB page and was like did you mean for people to see this? I was driving home, I did not mean for anyone to see it, and it lead her here. Fortunately, Facebook can tell you status updates, much like most websites, and let you know how many people saw what. Only one person went to go and look at the changes I made on that page, LOL, and that one person was her!

Unfortunately, I didn’t want her to know this side of me. Although a part of her already knew. We have known each other since we were basically, about 11, give or take, and we are about 33ish. so 20ish years. I sent her the handwritten version of my prayer request, which is very short for what I am praying for her and BF2. (Best Friend 1 and 2) Just in case you all can’t figure that out, I’m sure you can! LOL!

There are only 3 prayers written down,  Continue reading
