God

Jesus Christ, God, Holy Spirit, the father, holy ghost

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 139 NIV

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Guidance

To be it you must seek it!

Who needs guidance;  infants, children, teenagers and some parents and for the most part this guidance comes from other generations grandparents.

Through prayer I will ask God to direct me on how to orchestrate and guide you. I want all of us to be there for Gods precious and vulnerable children in a positive and an encouraging way.

As we guide them we also allow them to be what God wants them to be.  There have been many times that I have been used and abused and yet I look back and think that had to take place in order  for me to be where I am now.

At my business I never had any age restrictions because after all why restrict them from expressing themselves?  We are in their lives to provide them with consistent support system and to encourage them.  The educational life skills they will be learning are designed to help these children strengthen their chances of a bright future.

Mentoring children will give each of them the confidence and self-sufficiency for an independent life.

I want these children to see what God can do for them through me and others.

God has provided me the key ingredient to teach the children with.

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
1 Corinthians 10 NIV

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
Luke 6 NIV

Love

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Teachable Moments

Taking Direction During Teachable Moments

I at a young age would stand near my father watching him work hard laboring; sweating, sifting, lifting, measuring, folding and cutting. I wanted to be near him, so, I would do whatever I could do to be part of the environment.

Later on in life…when I was teachable, I learned from my father by standing with him, which brought me closer to him. Eventually, my father trained me how to roll out Danish (several steps and stages to this), scale it, refrigerate it, roll in the margarine, roll it three fold, refrigerate it, roll it out, fold it three fold, refrigerate it, then roll it out to cut it, twist it, mold it, top it, proof it, bake it for it to become a sweet beautiful item to ingest or digest.

I remember my father showing me how to cup a small piece of dough in the palm of my hand and lightly flour the work bench service to prevent the dough from sticking or slipping from under my palm. He had a knack and a feel for the size you must have in the palm of your hand.  I soon learned that was key to the proofing and baking of the item.

Our workbench was about 20 feet long (he and I would share one side of it working out long pieces of Danish dough.

I lived for and thrived for my father’s attention.  I was his side kick. We did many things together including; riding motorcycles, washing our vehicles, we worked on cars together, we fished together, we water skied almost every weekend light rain or bright sunny days, we went to car races together and we went camping as a family at least one time a year.

Our time was precious versus owning possessions. I do not recall being without any of what people call the latest and the greatest items and to this day I still do not live that way.

Does that mean I had or have everything?
I think we must define what everything is.

What is everything to you?
I think family unity is everything.  

Money cannot buy you happiness, it only buys you temporary pleasures and once those are acquired, you crave more which sometimes causes undue debts or habits that will eventually kill you or at least put you in some sort of depression.

 

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4 NIV

Trials In My Life

Well I hope you are ready to hear about all the trials that took place in my life.
I call them trials because, you never know the verdict till you go to trial and for some time after you come out of a trial setting.

When you are placed in the presence of a trial, you are either innocent or guilty of the charges being presented. But, what if you are a victim in the trial setting.

What if you are on the jury, family or a friend or an innocent bystander, or a witness?

What have you experienced through all this uncertainty? My feeling is you are guilty till proven innocent.

I know firsthand if you would have made good choices you wouldn’t be questioning the situation at hand but, being we are human beings living in this sinful world.

We are among-st worldly people.

We could be committing sin and not even think much about it till you walk away or something bad happens from it.

  • Do you have all the facts?
  • Do you have circumstantial evidence?  Is it hearsay?
  • Do you keep your thoughts in your head for a bit, pray about it, then speak up?
  • Do you gossip?
  • Do you put yourself in vulnerable situations?
  • Does everyone have all the facts.

There are people who watch, listen and hear what they are being told but, we honestly may not even know if it’s true or not, till your world is rocked beyond all means by what the jury convicts you of.
