Charlotte Knights- My first baseball game!

Today Zach and I went to our first baseball game with Lynn. We had a wonderful time despite the rain clouds that came by once in awhile. The game was great! I loved when the children came out onto the field and ran around. Caroline, one of the mascots (above) scared the living daylights out of me by sneaking up on me. After scaring me, I asked if she would take a pic with Zach. As you see....He loved it! As for food- Nothing beats a hot dog at a baseball game!! Best in the world! Before leaving Zach got a baseball and bat along with a cap. We look forward to going again! It was a lil rough on the way home. Rain poured to the point at times it was not visible to see the car ahead but we three made it home safe and sound. I thank God I am able to have opportunities to spend time with my family and friends. By the way, Charlotte Knights won!! YAY!!! Lord, thank you for allowing me to spend time with people in my life. I thank you, Lord for protecting us as I drove us home in the pouring rain. Amen!

Ladies in Christ

On May 14th, a few members of our Sunday school class went bowling. (Yes I know I am slack on putting this up- I'm catching up!) We had a blast!! Even though we weren't that good but we had a fun. It's so nice to have people to hang with that have a strong faith in Christ as well as being positive. Everyone needs positivity in their life. I enjoy doing things with the girls from church (Ladies in Christ is what we are called). I plan on becoming more involved in meetings and groups. I love going to PDBC!!!!! I look forward to hanging with the girls- they are awesome!!! Lord, thank you for good Christian friends, friends I can look to and grow with. It's a blessing to have positive people in my life and to have people who believe in you. Continue to bless me with good Christian friends in my life. Amen!

Me Vs. The World

. I have to admit I have let myself slide. The past couple of weeks I haven't been focused on God like I should. I let myself get caught up in the drama of wickedness by other people. Sometimes I let people's words and actions take control of how I feel and what I do. I get angry and depressed because I feel like I am not good enough. I realize I am a child of God. He is there to protect me. I may not be good enough in others eyes but in the eye of God I am good enough. As long as I set an example and follow his words I will always be good enough. I cannot fix everything and make it a better but I can do my best to be the woman God wants me to be and live the way He wants me to live. There will always be wickedness but as a Christian I need to put my spiritual armor on and know God is my protection. In the end, I will stand strong. Only thing that separates me and the evil of the world is the cross. I would rather be on the side of Jesus Christ than to have to answer to the wrong doings of this world. The past 2 days I have spent a lot of time with God and asked that He forgive me for going astray and protect me and guide me. No matter what God is always there to protect me. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven ~Matthew 5:16. No matter who trespasses against me Dear Lord, I will not fall for you give me strength and courage! Amen!
Psalm 27
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread?
2 When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though a host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I shall be confident.
4 One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD
And to meditate in His temple.
5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle;
In the secret place of His tent He will hide me;
He will lift me up on a rock.
6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice,
And be gracious to me and answer me.
8 When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You,
“Your face, O LORD, I shall seek.”
9 Do not hide Your face from me,
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not abandon me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation!
10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
But the LORD will take me up.
11 Teach me Your way, O LORD,
And lead me in a level path
Because of my foes.
12 Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries,
For false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD
In the land of the living.
14 Wait for the LORD;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the LORD.

God is good....All the time!

Lately my life is blossoming into something so beautiful! I don't worry about anything and put all things in God's hands. I know that I cannot always change people and the situation. Sometimes, I do have to remind myself that God is in control and not me. When I ask for something; I ask God to give me what he wants me to have. I have a wonderful life and I am very blessed with family, friends, and the love of my life. I could not ask for more other than for God to continue to bless my life as I praise His name, to glorify Him in every way! Thank you, Lord, for the many blessings you have given me and the blessings to come. Thank you Lord for a wonderful son and sending me a good Christian man in my life. Lord, you are so good to me. Through my trials and tribulations you are there to lift me and wipe away the tears. I thank you and I praise you! God you are good ...All the time!

God bless all the mothers in the world!

A woman goes through a lot in this world. We are wives, mothers, friends, workers, healers, and followers of God. Being a mother is a very rewarding yet sometimes stressful job. We serve the Lord as we care for our family. Each day, we ask God to help us care for our family and to give us strength. May God bless all the Mothers in the world!!! Happy Mother's Day!

Proverbs 31:10-31

10 An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself [5] with strength
and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet. [6]
22 She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.
