Sunshining in My Life

Wednesday, April 09, 2014


The glorious splendor of sunshine on a beautiful day fills the world with God's rays of hope, love, and beauty. Each time I look beyond the horizon, I see how wonderful God created a planet of mystery and suspense. We humans have "messed it up" with our selfish ways and wreckless behavior.
The audacity!

Nevertheless, I am grateful for my lessons and blessings! Yes, the sun is shining in my life! emoticon

Friday, April 04, 2014

I am determined emoticon to make this day one of prosperity, peace and plentitude!
Adjusting my nutritional goals, hitting each task head-on, and checking off completed lists.
The emoticon may have put a temporary damper on my emoticon , but it'll come out later on today.

So, as I forge ahead with a positive attitude and emoticon each challenge with emoticon in my heart, I know I will make Friday's feat one of another emoticon

March into Meditation

Sunday, March 16, 2014

emoticon emoticonI'm making myself rearrange and revamp some items in my domain. Loving my new place! It's so peaceful and my daughter and son love it too. We have come a long way since the lifestyle change and I welcome the renewed energy. Ahhhh... emoticon emoticon
Now, I'm ready to continue my job search and move my career in an upward direction. So I am about to meditate on God's Word. Guidance helps with decisions and my God has never failed me and NEVER will.

Why pick on our 16-year old daughter?

Saturday, February 15, 2014

How can you tell your own daughter, "I have 4 other children if you don't like me?"

The emotional scars...my God will heal.

I just pray that the law of the land shows justice to someone who puts his family through turmoil. Sowing seeds of discord is NOT how you escape a marriage. Placing the children in the midst of it all is absolutely unacceptable.

Praying for inner peace of my daughters throughout this trying time.
This too shall pass...

    That is sad!! He must be trying new and creative ways to hurt you without thought of what it is doing to your children. I'm so sorry that it's happening this way :( I have no doubt that your daughters will be ok, though, because you are a strong and smart woman. That rubs off!

    I am so sorry your daughter has to experience such rejection at a time in her life when she needs support. You can't control what anyone else does or says but you can explain that hurting someone with words is not acceptable for anyone. And that you love her no matter what. God bless. emoticon

    This is your opportunity to show your daughter that someone else does not control your emotions and your life. Teach her by example that someone elses' treatment of her need not determine her life, emotions and future. Good luck, honey! emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear this. You can't control the behavior of others but you can make all your children feel securely loved and valued by you. And you can not ask them to take sides with you against anyone else.

Wishing you strength, courage, health and happiness.

Tis The Season for Slimming Down

Sunday, December 29, 2013

Yes. I have celebrated my savior's birth. I have been angered by the family disconnect throughout the divorce. Christmas was our 18 year wedding anniversary. He didn't even see his oldest son (from a previous relationship), and I have prayed for forgiveness in my heart although he continues to hurt and bewilder our children.

So I am "slimming down" my emotions. Whatever happens, I know I gave it my all. Whatever is said, I give it all to my God to deal with. It is bigger than me at this point and I know I'm not perfect, but I was a good wife and mother.

So I am recommitting myself to fitness, nutrition, and mental health. "I give myself away..."

Join me along this journey to being a better me.

Thanks to all of my spark friends who have continued to be a source of ongoing support. It means more than words can express.

I know I'm not online often, but when I check in and "SPARK" I feel the love and support. emoticon Muah!!!

    You can only control yourself and actions, not his. His actions will come back to him one day. emoticon You do what you can, as much as you can...and then it is out of your hands. It is hard to let go, but it is the best thing you can do for yourself.

    Girl,

I am sorry to hear your turmoil especially around the holidays, but it is in God's hands. Rest in knowing God is in control. I need help motivating to lose weight again as I gained this year even though I exercise every day, I don't always eat well. Know that you are a good mother and were a good wife and God will see you through your turmoil. Please know I am here for you.
