I can do anything in JC

On Sunday I went to church like I do all Sundays, and I was so happy to listen to the message. It filled me with so much understanding and a deep desire to do my best. I learned that we should be grateful for all the things that God has provided. That it is okay to want more but to always remember to trust in him. That we can work day and night, but on our own strenght we can only get so far, before we are so drained and tired. I have been doing just that .. focusing on my wants and working so hard .. to only end up tired and over now I will trust in the Lord and I will work just as hard but this time I will allow him to be my guide and I will do his will and not mine. Easy said.. but hard to do.. but he will give me the strenght to do it.

Waiting Patiently!!

One of the hardest thing for a person is to wait patiently on JESUS.. We want things to happen over night.. and when they don't we panic.. I have to remind myself that God is in my corner. That the will of God will not take you where his grace can not Protect you!!

I asked God for somethings.. and now i must remember to be patient and to wait. God is not man to lie and when u ask him for something he will make it happen. Doubt is not from him and we must get rid of all doubt and trust that God is listening to everything we ask him for. Father I placed my all in the Altar and I asked you for a Special something.. Please Lord make the wonders of your will manifest now and do not allow ur children to suffer any more.

8 Years ago.. I realized what the word Love really meant.. I never knew that one could fall in love by first sight. I learned that Love can be a painful thing.. that it makes u strive to be a better person.. 8 years ago my nephew was born and as honest as i am i can tell u he was not the cutest little thing.. LOL. he looked like a little alien all swollen. But in a couple of weeks after his birth he turned out to be such a stunner. Now 8 years old my little baby is a little man.. and today on the eve of his temporary leave.. he will always live in this house.. he sat up and looked at me and asked me " what did I see in him? He said remember when i was little well now.. what do u see.. So I understood he was asking me.. if he had changed.

I said Oh I see my Little man.. all grown up, stronger than before, now u have a voice and know how to use it, I said You are filled with The Love of Jesus in your heart , and knowledge and wisdom.. Strong legs and arms and the ability to stand up for ur self.

I pray that God knows what's best, My heart says its best for him to stay here with me, but I love him so much that I can also let him go.. and hope that his mother can give him the LOVE he deserves.. Blessings to My little Prince Ur Tia will always be there for you. Because it takes a village to raise a child and it takes Jesus and love to raise a man

Wings to fly

Today I am feeling a bit Blue and really under the weather... Like I have mentioned before I have been helping raise my nephew for the past three years. When he was 5 for reasons that i cannot state he moved in with us and we have been caring for him ever since. now his mother wants him back and he is moving back with his mom and I just hope that we have given him wings that are strong enough to help him. I pray to God and ask him to keep him safe and to help him readjusting to this second change and that this time around his mother is equipped and willing to be the mother he needs and deserves.
I am going to MISS him greatly.. =(..... but I just pray that God decides what is best for him and that this is a positive thing. I will always be there for him and his sister.. always cheering him and on and letting them know that we are equipped with some great fabric that God has given us.. that we need to strive for Success and that the past can not dictate our future.. that if we Believe the world can be ours.. just takes work, dedication and Faith is the Lord.

Love you Lots D..

The Little Prince

I am sure you all have read the wonderful book titled The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry
Here is the part that I enjoyed the most and I loved sharing it with my Nephew. HE is my Little Prince, I am amazed at how many lemons life has throw his way and he always comes out on top with a smile that can brighten your darkest days.. at such a tender age of 5, 6, 7 and now 8 children should never have to endure so much turmoil as he has.
But I believe that GOD has a purpose for him, and its up to the people who love him to help him get there.

My nephew is a dreamer and a lover of nature, animals and life. My only wish for him is to have a joy filled life and that happiness is in his heart always, may he trust in the Lord so that he never forgets or questions his value.

I used this book to teach him that even if the world does not believe in you.. YOU MUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF..and never allow any one to make you doubt your purpose and your potential , specially ignorant adults..

To my Nephew D.A.P. ... God will bless You abundantly and he will cover you and protect you and you will be a great man, for the Honor and Glory of his Holy Name.. Amen.

Excerpt from The Little Prince :
Once when I was six years old I saw a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest. It was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an animal. Here is a copy of the drawing.

In the book it said: "Boa constrictors swallow their prey whole, without chewing it. After that they are not able to move, and they sleep through the six months that they need for digestion."

I pondered deeply, then, over the adventures of the jungle. And after some work with a colored pencil I succeeded in making my first drawing. My Drawing Number One. It looked like this:

I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened them.

But they answered: "Frighten? Why should any one be frightened by a hat?"

My drawing was not a picture of a hat. It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. But since the grown-ups were not able to understand it, I made another drawing: I drew the inside of the boa constrictor, so that the grown-ups could see it clearly. They always need to have things explained. My Drawing Number Two looked like this:

The grown-ups' response, this time, was to advise me to lay aside my drawings of boa constrictors, whether from the inside or the outside, and devote myself instead to geography, history, arithmetic and grammar. That is why, at the age of six, I gave up what might have been a magnificent career as a painter. I had been disheartened by the failure of my Drawing Number One and my Drawing Number Two. Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.

On faith

Faith is living life trusting in something even if u cant see it. It is believing that something is coming. Faith is believing that the desires of your heart will be answered. Faith is believing that life will get better and faith is believing in what you can not see.. sometimes we lack some of that faith to pull us through our obstacles... I am so glad that when that happens i remember that faith is something that is in me and I can depend on it to get me through the dark trials of life.
in this trying days, when many of our friends and loved one are out of work and many are facing foreclosures on their homes, it the perfect time to place your all in the hands of the Lord. Only he can bring us out of the desert in tot he Promise land.
It is so easy to Praise god when everything is going well, when life is full of Joy and happiness, when we have excess and money is not a problem.

But to believe and Honor him during difficult times.. that's really trusting in him and showing him that he is with you in good times and in bad times. It proves to him that we wont let difficulties separate us from his presence.. So Hold on My friend to the lord, because he will pull us out of the Darkest hole and his light will shine on us..

Blessing to all

Samsung Impression

After a month and a half with this new phone.. here is my Honest Review.

I love the way it looks and its perfect for Texting.. love the size and the feel.. wanted a side kick and like I said this is the closet i can get to one.. i have AT&T..

Now the much as I love this phone this is the 2nd one that I have gotten , the first one was horrible , the camera function was always freezing and it kept turning Off on its own. The camera was giving me overly exposed washed out pictures. So i received a replacement and this one the camera works, but I still have the freezing when I attempt to open up my pictures.. Samsung was more helpful and offered to take a look and fix my phone free of charge under their warranty, but that meant having to be with out a phone for 3 weeks, and I am pretty sure that would have interfered with my AT&T warranty.. so I decided to keep it and work with it.. minus the freezing of my picture folder , the phone works great, Wish Samsung would recall all of the Impressions and fix them.. to keep them from freezing that would make this phone AWESOME .

ps.. my cover is off of ebay

Protection from all things that harm us

As I sit here listening to the story about the 2nd grader who went missing in Oregon , my entire being trembles at the thought that someone actually went to this child's' school and harmed him. I pray that God allows this little boy to be found and that he is unharmed. I am sadden that we are in an era where children are not even safe at school. I myself do not have any biological children, but I am helping to raise my now 8 year old nephew, and the thought that some one can harm an innocent child is revolting.

Its hitting home specially because I am the one who takes my nephew to school and i can not imagine how his step mom is feeling. From now on I am going to make sure he is inside his class room before I leave him, we are fortunate to have a closed campus and his room in inside a building so I can see him go into his class room, but from now on I am walking him all the way to his door. I don't care if they say i am paranoid or over protected, I just never want something like this to happen to any one. To all the parents and, grandparents, Aunts, uncles and care givers who are raising little ones..lets make a promise to keep our eyes open and make sure our kids are safe. Specially the little ones.. they depend on us to protect them.

my heart goes out to his family and I am asking GOD to please keep him safe and help them find him.

I am leaving you with a bible verse that I hold close and dear to my Heart. My grandmother taught me this when I was 4-5 years old , she knew she was leaving me, her time on earth was coming to an end , she said this was my shield and to use it when ever i felt in danger, I pray it over all the children of the world and I ask My Lord to keep them safe.

Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]

2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."
