God loves us so much that he sent his son to free us from the bondage of sin. God is always willing and capable.God's grace is sufficient God is love. No matter the situation, God is always in control. As we go about our lives we should always seek to encourage others. Iron sharpens iron. One never knows the difference he or she makes just by letting others know that they matter and have lots to offer. So as you run along be an encouragement to someone.You will be happy and they will be happy. Encourage others to do their best and live a life that is full and free knowing that with God all things are possible

Goodbyes are never easy. Now that Spring is here, there's never been a more opportune time, than now to do some house cleaning; whether its the closet, basement, or mind, there is no better time than now to do away with cluttered stuff that's just lying around.
Relationships can be one of the hardest situations to part with; yet, it is something that needs to be dealt with. Walking away after getting so attached is like a major loss which makes life unbearable at times. So many memories to deal with. Usually it's just feels so hopeless. The experience can usually be traumatic. Sort of like losing apart of one's self.
God's grace is sufficient With God's help one can overcome. God never gives us more than we can bear. Things happen for the best most of the times. Maybe after the break-up one can now focus on that something that one placed on a back burner for some time. Now should be a time of self reflection and evaluation, A time to gain a different prespective and to make decisions necessary for growth and development. Time does heal all wounds. TIME and faith in God! It's true breaking up is hard but hey, it is for the best and we all have to experience it at sometime or another. God is able and saw me through and he can do the same for you.

What do matches and wooden planks produce? Oh, you are so brilliant! Ashes is Correcto! I knew that; but, I was inquisitive, young, and senseless, caught up in a world of curiosity. I burnt the house down! Well, I was playing under a wooden house with matches and paper. Oh! I was having the time of my life. Until.....
Surprised footsteps ruined that moment for me. It sent me scampering, leaving a lighted paper with matches behind. Those wooden planks must have been rotted to the core because before I knew it the whole house was engulfed in flames. Nothing was salvaged. It happened so quickly. Everything was lost. I did not get embraced for having survived. Oh no! that night there was a weeping and a wailing. Those blows did not warrant anything, because I still make dumb mistakes. No, I am not burning down houses. I despise cigarettes. Well, God is still working. All the greats experimented, why should n't I?
My earliest recollection of one of my dumbest moments was the time I tied a goat with a vine and the goat ate its way to freedom never to be seen again. I wonder what happened to the poor sap; maybe wild animals made a meal out of him.
Children are expected to make mistakes; yet, this is no excuse for me not utilizing my common sense whatever sense I had at the time. It never really occurred to me that the very animal I acknowledged as being dumb turned out to be smart after all. After my chastisement, I vowed , that if I ever found that goat well, I would turn him into goat soup for sure. I got the beating of my life and vowed that this would be and was my last beating. So, news flash to all those men who believe that wives, girlfriends or significant others need a beating now and then, think again because the goat ate my whip
Men beat up women because women tolerate it or maybe men are still trapped in the cycle of abuse or maybe beating up women makes them feel powerful. Regardless of the reasons, there is no excuse. At the start of every relationship it's always a good idea to lay the cards on the table. Sort of like nipping it in the bud. You cannot be too much in love to forget this important tidbit. After all its your life. If women tell men what they won't and will not tolerate ,then battered women will be unheard of. I got too much blows as a child for me to allow some man who come from nowhere and going nowhere to beat me up. Oh no honey! If you value your life you won't lay a finger on me. I am no body's child, me pappy is 6+ feet under. So go punch a pillow already
