Creative Memories

Yesterday my brother and I helped the kids to create some awesome Pumpkins.  This was the first year we allowed them to do so. My nephew was excited.. but they still need more time to learn how to use a sharp object.  My niece was loving the getting your hands all gooey with pumpkins guts. D wanted an angry birds pig and my niece wanted a dog. So I think they came out pretty nice and the best part are the memories we created with them. As kids my dad would let my brother and I carve our own pumpkins and we remember how much fun we had. After my mom found her way back to Jesus we stopped celebrating Halloween and anything that came with it. Pumpkins was a part of that, but we remembered how much fun it was to carve the pumpkins and the time we spent with dad making them. Growing up we didn't have many of those memories, so we decided to let them experience the carving of a pumpkin, we stayed away from the ghost and scary faces and instead we created works of art. I know people will judge and criticize us, but I pray that God sees the intention of our hearts was to spend some quality time with the kids and create a lasting memory. The smile on their faces says it all, they were so proud of their carvings. They said the other pumpkins have scary faces with triangles, but ours are happy and even have ears. Its hard raising kids in this time and trying to instill in them values, which include Tolerance and Acceptance. And its specially hard to make them understand things that many adults have a hard time grasping. We pray that God keeps his eye on them and that they chose to grow in his presence and serve him. But that is for them to decide when the time is right as for now it is up to  us to guide and show them the way. While at the same time teaching them to respect other people and respect their choices and beliefs. They need to learn that we need to treat people and respect them the same way we expect them to treat us.

So I pray that you all have a wonderful week with your loved ones and may the Lord keep you all safe.

Special News...

Hello every one... I have not been able to log on and write on my blog because I have been sick. Who knew that a pain on my shoulder would last this long. It was more than just a tiredness.. there is something really wrong, I have been in pain for almost a year and it doesn't seem to end, That's why I have been MIA and haven't been able to update. Actually I haven't been able to do much typing this will guarantee a pain on my right hand and some major swelling. The worst part is that it seems like since its my pain.. Dr and Insurance don't seem to care. But Thank God I have him... I am putting my health , My life and my future in his hands. And I trust he will not let me down. Right now I have so many limitations.. my life is on Hold... I will say that even in Darkness God always lets his Light shine.  As far as answering prayers he does more than that, He manifest is works in our lives so I know that this illness, pain will soon be a thing of the past and Gods name will be glorified.  As for now I need to rest and trust in him.

Oh Yeah before I forget.. I have decided what to do  with my life, with Gods Guidance I know I will get to full fill my destiny. It might just take a bit more and more work to get there.

I am also happy to announce that God is awesome and has open a door for me to continue my education. Come January I pray that I am feeling better health wise and ready to start my Masters Program at USC. =D Yes I was accepted to USC's  Master in Social Work Program and I am so excited to start. To God goes all the Glory and I pray that He continues to use me as a vessel to share his greatness with the world.  To all those who believe in a God of greatness, I tell you that he exists and No dream is too high and No obstacle too great that He can't overcome.

You will be Missed...

Words evade me.. as I write this post... It's sad when a Person passes away, but a bigger void is left when that person is one that has made a dent on the world and has motivated the world to "think outside the box". Not only are we mourning the loss of the person, but also the lost of his vision and his great thinking.
