9.3.16 Be kind to one another…

img_6030-1

 

In a world filled with hate and anger, we must seek God more than ever for guidance. You must learn to forgive. Even if it hurts. God forgives, you just have to ask to be forgiven.

It took me a while to figure this out. Looking back, I used to hold a grudge on things that were not worth. Why stain your heart with anger and hate when you could learn to forgive and move on? People say it’s easier said than done…and yes I admit, it takes time. What I don’t understand is why people leave it for a later date. Did God wait to forgive you when you asked to be forgiven? NO. So why delay it any more than you have to?

Psalms 24 talks about having a pure heart will get into heaven. It’s a good read. The real question here is “Do you have a clean heart?” “Have you asked for forgiveness?” Maybe today’s the day you do. I promise you, that once you’ve confessed your sins to God, you will feel the elephant in the room has disappeared and that weight on your shoulders will also be gone! It’s truly an amazing feeling! Try it, and let me know how it goes.

10.18.15 Do NOT be afriad 💛

Be courageous

This post really speaks to me. After breaking up with an ex years ago, I didn’t notice, but I had lost all of my confidence and had lost myself. I had changed and not for the better. I wasn’t my goofy self.  I was timid, shy, unspoken. It took time, but with the help of our good Lord, and my close friends and family I started to find myself again.

Fast forward to now—

I am a true testimony that people can find themselves again, and feel whole. I am not candy coating it–it took time to get to this level. A lot of nervous attacks, throwing up, excessive crying and depression, but I’m out of that! I’m happily married and have a beautiful little girl. All I did was reach out for help. You can too!! Talk to me, your loved ones, your bestie….anyone willing to listen. It can work for you too! 

Hope you enjoyed my story! 

P.S.S.-my hubby comes home tomorrow!!!! 🎈💛💖🎈💞

8.14.15 Friday Inspiration  

  

So my BFF Danielle read my post on 8/12 and mailed me surprise package. I opened it and it was a 365 day inspirational quote book. How AWESOME!! This was today’s post. At first I didn’t understand it but after I read it over, I got it. It’s a great way to live life. 

My grandmother is the perfect example of this. She always gives without thinking we should reciprocate. She does not get mad when we borrow (take) something of hers and never return it. She has a holy heart and we will never forget what has she given to us. We call her Ata. I can go on forever about her loving ways.

On another note, it’s nice to see that my friends are always there for me, even when I don’t expect them to be. Thank you Danielle for this unexpected gift. Now I will pay it forward!

5.22.15 Baker in the making 🎂

My little Emily loves to bake! Every chance we get to make daddy a cake, a  box of brownies or cookies, we do. I have also been teaching her all of the ingredients in English and in Spanish. She is getting better at repeating the Spanish ingredients. I love it when she wakes me up and askes to bake something for daddy! She runs to the kitchen pulls out a chair and expects me to start whipping something up to bake. These are the moments that I will look back upon when she becomes older. These are the stories I want her to read to show her with some dedication and constant practice anything is possible.  While I train minute to be a mini me, what are your little ones up to? 😜

5.4.15 Follow your heart ❤️

Follow your heart

I completely agree with this saying. There are many times, even in recent days that I can think of when I didn’t ask.  If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.

It takes a lot of courage to ask, and even though you know the answer is NO, or maybe not right now, you feel a type of relief by just asking.  A great example is me asking my boss for a raise. Even though I knew the answer would be “no, there is no money”, I felt that burden of finding a way to ask lift away. The answer was not what I was looking to hear, but I got the guts and courage to ask.

As the ending of this saying states: If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place. Just sit there and really think about it. “If you don’t step forward….you’re always in the same place”. It can be applied to everything in life: work, marriage, weight, society, love, relationships, family….everything we strive for is founded by this single sentence. Have you had the courage to step forward?

If so, let me hear about it 🙂
