Thankfulness Through All

We should give thanks to God for everything.
“Give thanks in all circumstances.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

By giving thanks to God for everything it shows me how much I have been through and has shown me how much God brought in my life because of all the thing I have thanked him for.

By going through my moms divorce I can give thanks to God for showing me how much strength a child needs, or a family needs during such a horrible event. It has shown me how much it takes of a child, how much the child has to grow up, not because of being alone, but having to be there for the parent.

A divorce is more than just the husband and wife. A divorce is something that affects everyone. Now-a-days people take a marriage for granted and if it is not “meant to be” then they just trash it and get another one. Going through such a horrible event I, myself, have seen how much it tears people apart even though they don’t talk about it.
Friends can try to be there for one another, but if a friend has never been through the situation then one can not “relate”.

Going through this event has opened my eyes to what is real and what is not. Giving thanks that I was in that situation that I can help others overcome, and be that listening ear for once I was in their shoes wishing for someone to hear me.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, wish thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
– Philippians 4:6

Be thankful for the rain as it brings out the flowers and makes everything so green.

Starting your day by being thankful can help lighten the load on your heart.

Happy Thankful Thursday!


Never, Ever, I hope

Google Image 30 days of Truth is about bringing out the best in yourself. Also, to let people see the “real” you through what you write. For thirty days I will write about myself, I will dig deep and I hope you can start this journey with me. 30 days of Truth; Are you ready!?

Day 06
– Something you hope you never have to do.
A divorce. I have seen how much damage they can do to your spirit, soul, family, and friends. I have been through one and it took everything of me to come out of the depression I was in.
Bury my child/children. To read Blogs about loosing a child, I can sit here with tears rolling down my face. My heart goes out to the ones that lost a child/children/stillborn/miscarriage/grown-up. I hope one day yall can find comfort, peace, and joy. That has to be one of the hardest things for anyone to go through, and every one of you guys are so strong!
Homeless; I hope to continue having a place over my head and food in the cabinets. There is so many homeless here in the states; they have no where to go, sometimes they don’t even eat.
Tornado; I hope I never have to live through one. Maybe go to the tornado alley and watch one in the distance, but not be stuck in my house as I pray for my life.
Cancer; I hope I never have to see a loved one go through cancer again. It was hard to see my Mawmaw in so much pain, and watching her become fragile before my eyes.
Faith; I hope I never lose sight of my faith. That will be one crazy place to live. Faith is what gets me through all the hard times I am faced with.

I hope no one ever has to think about any of things, or even live through them. What a sad question today. On a happy note…
I hope all of you have a wonderful, fun, joyful day, today! It is the middle of the week and it is time to start counting down the days till the weekend.

New Beginnings

Seems lately I have a lot to think about. I figured I could write about it, get it out of my system so to speak.

Lets start from, um…

I was raised as an only child, when in reality I have 3 sisters, and a brother (1/2 siblings) on my real dads side. No one ever knew I had siblings, I never talked about it, unless someone went to school with them, or someone asked me. I went most of my life without them (my choice). I was raised by my step-dad for 13 years. He always told me he would adopt me, not to worry about anything. I even had my Letterman jacket from high school with my step-dads last name on it. However, when my step-dad and mom got a divorced, he divorced me too. He walked out of my life with never looking back.

I found my (ex) step-dad on FB about 2 years ago. I would send him private messages about twice a year (when I would think about him). I would just tell him I was thinking about him and I hoped that he was doing well. After 2 years of sending messages and never hearing anything he finally wrote me back recently. He told me I lied to him for years and he has nothing for me, and to never contact him again. (He was the one that cheated on my mom and married his girlfriend, so who lied for years?) This really bothered me that he didn’t have the balls to explain his reasoning, or why he even thought the way he did, but who knows it could have been his wife writing me back. Well, I finally said screw it. I am moving on. I went without him for this long, I can go more. That dang Letterman Jacket though, every time I open my closet it stares at me, been thinking about mailing it my ex (grandparents). I am sure if my (ex) step-dad thinks Im a lair, then they do too, so I am breaking down my bridges and moving on from the hurt, sucking up my tears and walking.

My days recently have changed a bit. My siblings have been calling wanting to come visit. I think it would be great to reach out and see how things go. Blood is thicker than water and I am willing to give anything a chance. God has closed a door so a new window will open and my window is blowing in some nice wind.
