James 1:16-18 (The Message) - "So, my very dear friends, don't get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures."

All I can say is THANK YOU GOD! I got a chance to pack my family and Tony up for the day and we headed to Daytona Beach. Just one day, to meet some very good friends of mine. Daytona is 5 hours away from me, but let me just say that God knew I needed a day away because the weather was PERFECT, the kids got a chance to go to the beach and play and I got some thinking and calm time. After a week of being disheveled, things coming from every which way, I got some time to regroup and prepare for the week ahead.
It was the gift from God I needed.

It's gonna be a good week. I am gong to make it one no matter what happens. Staying positive are the words for the day! Be blessed my friends, and until next time, Lord willing....

  1. And to recap my day:

    I was faced with some stuff that happened last week. Things I rally did not want to deal with to be honest after coming off a really good weekend. But I got the call and had to go to a meeting at the school.... so I prayed. I just asked God to go with me in that room because I did not know what to do or say and for me, sometimes talking (and my temper) get me in trouble.... and God answered me. My ex husband and I went in, and I just listened. I didn't like everything I heard, but I didn't speak at all (well until the very end) and all I said was .." well, it just is what it is. Its out of my hands and I'm gonna let God deal with it".

    It threw them, AND me cause I literally had a sense of CALM... I wasn't happy, mad or sad. Just calm and you know what... it really IS WHAT IT IS... God is gonna take care of it for me cause I have done all I can do about it.

    So I am leaving work now. Gonna pick up a pizza for the kids, grab a galss of wine and call it a night ..early!!!
