A NEW DAY ~
Situations of life can carry us further than we know by sitting in one spot. Thinking that things might never get better and appearing to loose hope in the night. The day has past and a new day is about to begin. A new way to think in your now.
I am reminded to look out over the ocean with hope. The same waves that come into our lives, can go out of our lives. Our decisions and our determination makes a difference. I will not give up believing and praying for my family, friends and readers of my blog. Each day represents freedom of where you used to be in life. You are not the same person as you were as a kid.
I wrote this yesterday:
I am currently sitting outside Starbucks and listening to a group of women complaining about Mother's Day. They are about 35 to 40 years of age and complaining on buying their mom a card and just the stress of the day. I want to go over there, but I decided to write you instead. I talk to many people and some wish they had their mother here on earth. Some people wish there mom's were not aging and in care homes. Some women wish they were mom's and had the chance of loving a little life. My heart feels broken today because people don't see what the do have in life.
Just like the waves in the picture. Some people let the waves carry their sorrows out, but they come back. Other allow the waves to carry sorrows out and never come back. Some people don't see the big picture at all. Creating a huge disappointment in many heart and mother's day that brings sorrows of how your childhood might have been. Maybe a happy home or maybe a sad home. There are so many different ways people think and yet we all truly want to be wanted and loved.
I also hear men in stores complaining to their children about buying their mom a gift. NO you are not getting that for your mom. When the man just asked, "what do you want to get your mom". Then tears from a child flows while not picking out their own gift at all. Then other children so happy that they did get to pick out their gift. I hope you see what I am trying to point out today. Some people just might want to have what you have in being a mom for mother's day. No complaining but a thankful heart.
Days with title do often stink. So many expectations and yet being let down. Others get exactly they wanted and they day shines with happiness. I decided a long time ago to take off the expectations of one day and allow my heart freedom to see what I do have in life. The waves of life come and go but God remains the same. The Bibles says to HONOR your father and mother.
Matthew 15:4-6 New Living Translation
4 For instance, God says, ‘Honor your father and mother,’ and ‘Anyone who speaks disrespectfully of father or mother must be put to death.’ 5 But you say it is all right for people to say to their parents, ‘Sorry, I can’t help you. For I have vowed to give to God what I would have given to you.’ 6 In this way, you say they don’t need to honor their parents. And so you cancel the word of God for the sake of your own tradition.
HONOR ~ the woman who gave you birth.
Maybe you don't know her
Maybe you don't like her
Maybe she was mean to you growing up
Maybe it's hard to honor her
Maybe it is easy to love her and honor her
Let us allow the past to be the past and move into being thankful she birthed us for a greater purpose. Be the person God made you to be and allow the waves to carry your past out. As Mother's Day approaches, I know it's not easy for many people. I do care and will continue to pray for hearts that are broken both female and male. It's hard to honor a person who hasn't treated you with respect too.
Through it all, I've learned to trust in God. I hope you will join me in a new way of thinking and counting blessings of all you do have in life. Nobody is perfect and we have all made mistakes. Forgive yourself of you need to and allow yourself freedom to be happy. God will bring people into your life for purpose. Maybe your past was ugly, but your future is full of hope and seeing yourself stronger than you might think. Bring up the strong person inside of you. Speak words of life in all do you today and always.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT ~ never forget that
Maybe you don't have everything you ever wanted in life, but you do have a new day.
Thank you for taking time to read my blog. I care and promise to pray of you.
