Week 8 ~ Never Use ‘Called’ As An Excuse!

People are ‘Called’ by God everyday to go someplace, to do something or to fill a need for someone! Some are ‘Called’ to Pastor a church, some are ‘Called’ to a distant land to serve and minister and some are even ‘Called’ from one church to another! When God ‘calls’ you to move on something, you willingly do it! For instance, if you are a member of one church and God ‘calls’ you to another church and you know that it is God, then you move, but you don’t just pack your bags and go! You do things the way God wants you to! You go to the Pastor and tell him/her that God has called you somewhere else. The Pastor will give his/her blessing and your move will be blessed.

God gets the blame for a lot of things that people just don’t have the decency to stand up and admit! Don’t use God as an excuse! “God told me to do such and such”, “God called us to do this or that” and the list goes on and on! When He actually ‘calls’ us to something, He blesses us in the ‘calling’.  One day we will all stand in front of Him and I don’t be one of those people that He asks, “What about the time you said that I called you to do such and such or the time I called you to change churches?”

I know when God calls me to something and I do it without announcing it to the world! He is my Daddy and it is my desire to serve Him and to be more like Him. Please don’t put the blame on God or use Him as an excuse! He already has His hand full without our adding to it! 🙂

Be a blessing to your Daddy as well as to everyone else! Share His love everywhere you go! 🙂

Love and Blessings,

Week 7 ~ Everyday is Valentine’s Day!

Fifty-one years ago today I was blessed to become a Valentine! Yes, a real, true, ‘honest to goodness’ Valentine! Paul Valentine chose me to be his Valentine on Valentine’s Day 1961 ~ for real!

Now in our family, everyday is Valentine’s Day, but it’s nice to have people around the world celebrate it with us every February 14th! 🙂 We are now a family of 11 in our Valentine family ~ 2 grown children; 2 ‘children in love’ (1 of whom carries the Valentine name); 5 granddarlings (4 that actually carry the name of Valentine) and Paul and me!

It is truly a blessing to be a Valentine and really makes you feel ‘special‘! So from our happy home filled with love to yours we wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

We are looking forward to the next 49 years! 🙂

Love and Blessings,

Week 6 ~ Want to Have Fun While Running Errands?

Running errands is not my favorite thing to do! I want to get in and get out and get back home! Well, the other day when DH and I were on our weekly trip to Son’s home to spend another fun-filled day with our youngest Granddarling while his mommy worked, I was praying! (I seem to do this a lot while DH is driving in heavy traffic! Hehehe! He is a very good driver but not a very patient man when in traffic!) Well, when I pray it is basically talking to my Daddy and listening to Him!  Suddenly I heard, ‘Judy, start praying for ones who cross your path whether driving or just anywhere, as My Spirit leads you to!’ I smiled and said, ‘Okay!’

So that is what I have been doing! Today I had to make a quick trip to Walmart to pick up something for dinner, so I prayed for different ones as I was driving. When I parked and got out of the car, someone crossed my path, I was led and I prayed! This went on as I walked the isles looking for what I needed! Now, when I pray, I talk to my Daddy, but like under my breath with my lips moving. Therefore to others it seems I am talking to myself! I had so much fun because when someone would cross my path, I would smile, nod my head in recognition of them and pray! Hehehe! I know they thought that lady is going around talking to herself! Oh, if they only knew that they had just been held up to the Throne of God by that lady that talks to herself! 🙂

Have a very blessed day and give it a try! It is so much fun to pray for complete strangers and the Holy Spirit will direct those prayers too! It is so rewarding because you know that He is going to answer those prayers and the people are never going to know you prayed for them! 🙂

Love and Blessings,
