Hey there. I hope you all are safe, healthy, and happy. I have some pressing ooling has this in their thoughts, for today.
First, my homeschool will be starting next week. I am anxious and excited. I cannot wait to be instrumental in helping my grandchildren to learn and flourish. I am anxious because I am wanting to do things the right way and to keep from holding them back from their potentials. I guess everyone who has started homeschooling has contemplated these very things. I just want to do my top level best. I want it to be fun ass well as awesome. Maybe it will be. Prayers are requested for me as I go on this journey.
Secondly, I worry about traveling during 9/11 remembrance date. I will be flying out and traveling to New York. I will be coming back on 9/11 and I am fully aware of the potential hazards of doing so. 9/11 was a very bad day for us, in America and around the world too. It showed us that people are out there that wish others harm, in a big way. It brought together many people through a horrific tragedy. Many lost hope, many died, a lot of others were impacted directly and indirectly. It stays in the minds of people, all over our world. Those who saw fit to take innocent lives, are not to be remembered as heroes but murderers. They should worry about facing their maker. I would appreciate your prayers for my anxiety.
Our world needs to love, needs to care, and needs to be noble. We should all be caring, responsible, and loving. Maybe we should reflect on our actions, words, and thoughts. We should practice empathy, and be sincerely interested in the welfare our world and its people.
Anyhow, I’ll leave you with this quote,
Random…Thoughts for today
I hate ever hearing the word cancer and especially knowing the cruel side effects it has on people. And people dying from it.
I am sure that dreams/nightmares, can consciously affect a person.
Everyone will not notice what you do for them, and that’s ok. It is done probably from the heart and that doesn’t need gratification if it is genuine.
I love that morning coffee. It has been a good friend.
Anyone else annoyed by the Mickey mouse on Disney?????
If it’s true that we can find love from the most unexpected place…I want it
If it is true that the morning brings a new beginning…I pray I never miss one.
If what people say about peace is true…I want my share.
If you are reading this and life has beaten you down….reach for the heavens there you will find comfort.
If we get forgiveness… I sure need it because I fail often.
If you feel you can’t keep going…you can! Just believe it is possible.
**So many If’s!!!
Life will keep moving. It is you though who has the power to change and direct your own life.
Don’t delegate your happiness or peace to someone or something else. Choose your path.
Where does love go when someone you love dies?
I think it floats and hovers over you…
I think because the person is not living anymore there is no ” receiver” of that love.
Maybe one day when God comes back, he not only collects souls, he collects all that love we had to.
Just an abstract view of love.
Remember love never really dies. It lives on with us and over us and around us.
It is up to us to give it, receive it, share it, or find it.
Find your love…if you lost it. Give your love… if someone needs it. Remember to let yourself be loved. Look for love in even the smallest places.
💜Thoughts on LOVE💘 by MwsR
Love survives where resilient lives.
It’s not always possible to love without much work.
The easiest love we have usually is from innocence or the kind like when you look at that newborn for the first time, maybe a first boyfriend or girlfriend, getting your favorite car….or job…. or vacation.
Real love takes effort to flourish. It takes a person who can overlook imperfections. Forgiving wrongdoings is part of that.
Love is not selfish, it gives up comfort often in exchange for pain.
Love sometimes can make us insane.
Choosing to love….or should I write… Loving despite the great disappointment, hurtful actions, or broken promises …. is what we try over and over when little good is in that someone or something and is hard to see upfront.
Being loved ….letting someone love you ….is when you can see what you are from their eyes and in loving yourself and believing you are worthy of LOVE.
It’s hard to forget REAL love, nor would we ever really choose to.
Christian love is Christ-like love. It is love that does not seek anything in return. It is a love we can only express if Christ lives in us. It is the greatest, selfless feeling towards others.
I have so much coming at me this coming two months. August, I am homeschooling my grandkids, holding a baby shower for my daughter who is carrying my fourth grandkid, a little boy. I am also going to Wisconsin for seven days, and in September, I am expecting my fourth grandkid, and having to go to New York. Busy for sure, but yet I am fortunate that it is a little separated in times, that all of that, is going on.
I was thinking about a friend of mine that lost her son recently, and another friend who is fighting cancer for the second time, and yet another friend who lost her father this week. It is difficult when tragedies come our way. I have such respect for those who deal with tragedies gracefully and still have the outlook that there is still much to be thankful for in their lives. I am not sure how they do that, honestly, looking at their situations. What I do know is I hope to have that same outlook should the tables turn towards me.
Sadness, death, and heartache are all part of being human and for the living. We should try always to see the good despite all the bad. Hopefully each one of us will have enough strength to. I think all the bad makes the other stuff look really better, Perhaps that is why we have to endure such things, so we can see the good. What do you think?
I will leave you with these verses…
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What do workers gain from their toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 13 That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.
15 Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.[b]
16 And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
17 I said to myself,
“God will bring into judgment
both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
a time to judge every deed.”
18 I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. 19 Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath[c]; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. 20 All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. 21 Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?”
22 So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot. For who can bring them to see what will happen after them?
I shall see you on this side of the rainbow~!
