I am definitely my Daddy’s girl! I am so in love with The Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit that I want to shout it from the rooftops! No, I am not ashamed! I am not intimidated! I am happy! I am overflowing in Joy, Peace, Love, Blessings, and Knowing Who I am!

Knowing who I am? Yes!!! I am a Child of God, created in His Image, filled with the Holy Spirit, born again (recreated) – made and filled with the Righteousness of God! He lives in me and The Holy Spirit guides my every step and action and when I stumble He is there to pick me up, dust me off and forward we go ~ Together!

He has blessed me so much with His wonderful gift of Love to share with everyone, everywhere I go! One gift He gave me was photography, to share the glorious beauty around me in all forms! I am a very blessed Woman of God and I love my Daddy!

Week 23 ~ What Impresses You?

Are you impressed by wealth? By expensive things? By looks? What really impresses you? My mother had 2 ‘sayings’ that I will never forget…’Pretty is as Pretty does’ and ‘Beauty is only skin deep’.  These both are so true!

Wealth, things, outward appearances are all superficial! When we think of wealth we think of monetary value, but there are other true forms of wealth in this world! There is wealth of knowledge! Wealth of living a healthy life physically and spiritually! Wealth of loving family and friends! Wealth of beauty all around us with the eyes and heart to see it! The list is endless.

Outward appearances are not true to what the person really is! When you see someone for the first time, do you immediately form an opinion of the person according to what you see? I have always said that the eyes are the gateway to the ‘real’ person! Let me give you an example…I once met a woman whose face was disfigured from a stoke! It was hard to look at her the first time without staring, but when I looked into her eyes, I saw the most beautiful, kindest, sweetest, most compassionate person I had ever met! I saw the real person! Then I didn’t even notice her disfigurement!

Expensive things? It doesn’t matter what the expensive thing is…jewelry, house, car, etc, etc,…that’s what they all are…things! Too many times those things become idols to the ones who posses them! An expensive house is a structure but that doesn’t make it a home! A home is filled with love, laughter, happiness and where God is the Head of that home.  It can be a multimillion dollar house or a one room shack, it’s not the cost, size or appearance of it, it’s what is inside of it! 🙂

So, stop today and think! What does impress you? I am not impressed by a person’s name, wealth, appearance or possessions and certainly not by what they say they are!!! I look at the fruit of their lives, how they live and how they treat others. Do they have the love of Jesus shinning through? Are they practicing Christianity or are they living a Christian life?Are they Religious or are they CHRISTian? This is what impresses me! Jesus is The Way ~ The Only Way!

Have an abundantly blessed day filled with God’s Beauty, Wealth, Truth and Love!

Love and Blessings,

Week 20 ~ Have You Noticed?

Have you noticed that when someone has a need for a loved one or themselves, people respond with, ‘sending healing vibes your way’, positive thoughts for you and …..’, ‘our wishes for an answer are with you’, ‘sending you our energy’ and the list goes on and on! Recently on a site I follow of a little girl with cancer who was having tests, several people posted ‘keeping our fingers crossed’! People…it’s not crossing fingers, sending positive vibes or thoughts or wishes that does any thing!!!  IT IS PRAYER!!! There is nothing as or more powerful than PRAYER! Oh, on the little girl’s site I commented “not crossing fingers, Praying!

What has happened to us? Have you ever noticed someone making a comment and using ‘G_d’! What is this? It seems that people have become so afraid of offending someone that they have become little creepy, meek hypocrites! I am not sorry, but I don’t care if I offend you, I am NOT going to offend my Heavenly Father, my Daddy, my GOD!

I am not ashamed of who I am in Christ Jesus! I am not ashamed that I am a Child of God, made in His image and loved unconditionally by Him! He is my Daddy and I am proud to say I AM MY DADDY’S GIRL!

If you don’t know Him and would like to, please contact me and I will introduce you to the One Who will never leave you, Who will love you unconditionally, Who has plans for you that are far greater than any thing you could even begin to imagine and Who’s will is blessings, goodness, divine health, prosperity and long life for you! He will not only walk every step with you, He will carry you when you are too weary to take a step! He is not about ‘religion’, He is about the Truth in God’s Word, not man’s made up theology and traditions! He meets our every need, even before we know we have it! All He asks in return is our love, trust and faith in Him and to develop a close personal relationship with Him and not be ashamed!

Oh, there will be trials and tribulations, but you know what?  He is always there, protecting, guiding, leading us and bringing us through to the other side full of blessings flowing abundantly! Through trials and tribulations we learn to trust Him and the rewards are beyond comprehension! You truly learn the meaning of ‘peace that passes all understanding’! I love my Daddy! I have faith in my Daddy and I trust my Daddy! My life is full, my life is rich, my life is full to overflowing with daily blessings!

We are a very happy, fulfilled, full of joy, peace and love family and we would love to welcome anyone who wants to join us, into our family for all eternity!

Have a truly blessed day!

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,

~Judy♡~


~ The Father’s Creations ~

This is the way The Father’s Creations was birthed 4 1/2 years ago in May 2007. Actually I asked God to reveal my gift to me. I know that He has given each one of us a gift and I wanted to know what mine was. Well, I asked and He did! It’s that simple! 🙂

My gift is constantly developing and improving and it will continue to do so as long as I have breath! There is only perfection in Heaven! If you don’t know what your God given gift is, just ask Him! He will reveal it to you and guide and teach you how to use it for His Glory! He is the most wonderful Daddy and I am definitely My Daddy’s Girl! 🙂

Have an abundantly blessed day!

Love and Blessings,

No Regrets!

Are you a “I should have”, “I wish I had” or “I could have” type of person? I had a very dear uncle whose conversations were always, “Well, I should have” or “Well, I could have” or “I sure wish I had”! Instead of seeing what he had done it was always what he should, could or wish he had done! And he actually had accomplished a lot in his life, but he didn’t see it! 😦

With the days, weeks, months and years seeming to be quickly flying by it made me think! (There I go again…thinking! :{ ) We all get so ‘busy’ doing ‘busy’ things, do we ever stop and take notice of the things that are really important? When is the last time you told someone close to you that you love them? When was the last time you called that friend or relative you were thinking of just to say ‘hello’? These are the things that are most important and that we are mostly likely to regret when it is too late! Oh, we say, “Oh, they know I love them or how important they are to me!” How do they know if you don’t take the time to tell them??? I was privileged to be with my mother for months while she was slowly preparing to move to her mansion in Heaven! During that time we got to talk, share and remember together. I got to tell her how much I loved her and was grateful and thankful that she was my mother because it was her raising me the way she did that made me the person I am today! We also got to talk about Heaven, how wonderful, beautiful and awesome it is! She actually asked me if I would go with her and I told her my bags were packed for whenever Jesus summons me! I also told her that our love would live forever and I would ask Jesus to give her a hug for me when I was missing her! You see, I know He does and she has gotten a lot of Jesus hugs! 🙂

Take the time today to tell someone, “I love you” or “I just want to thank you for being in my life”. Share a hug, a smile, a memory, a kind word. Call someone and if they don’t answer, leave an ‘I love you or Thank you for being you’ message!

When my mother drew her last breath here on earth, I cried not because I had any regrets but because I knew that she was with Jesus…young, healthy, happy, running through fields of green chasing butterflies! Instead of being a ‘I should have, could have, wish I had’ person, be a ‘I am so thankful I did’ person! If you are reading this…I love you and I am so thankful to have you in my life and I truly appreciate your stopping by to see what I see Thru My Daddy’s Eyes!

Love and Blessings

Do You See the Beauty…

Do you see the beauty around you or do you only see the ugly? When my Daddy blessed me with His gift of photographing Nature, I prayed, “Father, please let me see the beauty around me through Your eyes.”  He always answers our prayers! When people started noticing my photographs, I would have a smile in my heart whenever anyone would say, “You have such a good eye”! You see it’s not my eyes seeing the beauty around me…it’s my eyes seeing it through His eyes!

In the beginning I was asking to see the beauty around me in Nature through His eyes, but it soon changed to seeing the beauty in everything around me through my Daddy’s eyes! You see, I learned a long time ago to be specific when I ask my Daddy for something! I don’t want to see everything through His eyes, because He sees the beauty, the love, the goodness, but He also sees the ugly, the hatred and the evil! It is too easy for all of us to see the latter with our own eyes!

I have always been known as a person who loves laughter, who looks at the glass 1/2 full, etc, etc, but I am also a very strong person who does not like hypocrites, lying, immorality, etc. and unfortunately don’t mind letting you know it! Now that I have asked my Daddy to let me see the beauty in everything around me I find myself not noticing all the ugliness as much!

God is so GREAT! He does answer our prayers! I am so happy to be my Daddy’s Girl! Now I would like to share some of the beauty I have seen around me through my Daddy’s eyes! You can see a lot more at www.thefatherscreations.com

Love and Blessings,

Are You An Animal Lover?

Are you an animal lover? Do you enjoy sharing your life with ‘puppy breath’, the unconditional love of one of God’s 4-legged creatures or even one of His feathered 2-legged creatures? There are ‘dog lovers’, ‘cat lovers’, ‘bird lovers’ and even ‘reptile lovers’!  I am a 250% animal lover! ♡  We have 3 1/2 dogs (the half being 14 year old Bitsy, who was terribly abused by her previous owner’s husband and hates all men except Paul); 1 Calico cat who is the reigning queen of the household and 1 Red Eared Slider turtle, who proves that turtles do have personality and are capable of love too!

If you have never known the unconditional love of a pet, then I truly feel sorry for you! There are so many deserving little creatures of God out there that need your love, care and companionship! They don’t care what you look like, how much money you make, where you live, what kind of car you drive or what your IQ is! All they want is someone to love and to be loved in return!

I thank God everyday for the devoted Animal Rescues and Fosters out there that are saving lives! You know, even if you are a person who needs to have a ‘purebred’ (in God’s eyes they are all purebred) you can find them too, but if you are someone who just wants to love and be loved, then the perfect little guy or gal is waiting for you! These rescue furbabies are the most appreciative, loving, grateful little creatures that you will ever come across. They are the most faithful, loyal friend you will ever have! All they want to do is please you and love you with all their hearts.

Please look into adopting a ‘rescue’ baby or a ‘rescue’ senior today! The rescuers take them from shelters before they can be ‘put to sleep’ and then take care of the cost of seeing to it that they are vaccinated, heartworm tested, spayed or neutered and micro chipped before you adopt them. They have been loved and cared for to get ready for their forever home!  The adoption cost is very minimal and probably doesn’t begin to cover the cost of the care they have received! Please look into adopting one of these precious creatures today! You will be blessed beyond measure with one of God’s greatest blessings…one of His creations filled with unconditional love!

Here is my latest ‘rescued’ baby… Miss Sissi!

Miss Sissi ~ all 6.5 lbs of her! ♡

Love and Blessings, ~Judy♡~


Are You Satisfied With You?

There is so much today about how we should look, what size we should be, etc.  Now granted the world has become obese! Too many ‘fast food’ places; too many ‘super sized’ portions; too many electronic gadgets, etc.

It’s funny, but it’s not…we don’t get the exercise that we should with all the electronic devices that we ‘just have to have‘ and we have become obsessed with food…unhealthy, unnutritious, plaque building, artery blocking foods! Then we are told we all need to look like the anorexia looking stars and models!  What is the matter with us, People?  Have we become robots unable to think for ourselves or are we just brainwashed?

When I was a kid, and yes, that was a number of years ago, we had TV but weren’t allowed to watch it all day and night! We went outside and played! Active play!!! Rode our bicycles,  jumped rope, played chase, kick ball, etc! Oh, and we also used our imaginations! In other words our brains got exercise along with our bodies!

We had 3 meals a day…Breakfast, Lunch and Supper! The only snack we got was when we got home from school and it was usually fruit of some kind! Our meals were home prepared! Breakfast was cereal of some kind except on the weekends when mother would cook bacon, eggs, toast, etc.  Lunch was usually something light…a sandwich of some kind with fruit and very seldom chips! Supper was the main meal with meat, potatoes, salad and vegetables. We weren’t asked what we wanted to eat because we ate what mother had prepared! Desserts were saved for special occasions! Sundays were the day that the main meal was at noontime! Then something light in the evening for supper! Oh, and there were no ‘super sized’ portions either! A serving size was a serving spoon full of each thing and then you could have seconds! Plus there was no “I don’ like that“…not at my house! Mother saw to it that you had to take one bite of every and any thing she prepared!

All this to say, if we are not satisfied with who we are, then we need to take responsibility and change into who WE want to be! We don’t need diet plans that prepare and portion our food for us, trainers, pills or expensive equipment! We need to be in charge of who we are and take control over our lives. Women are made to have curves rather than having bones showing! We are meant to be active and able to walk, play and run (if you want to)! Families once played together! And families always ate together!!!

I don’t know about you, but I am taking my life back and gaining control of it! I need to lose weight, but most importantly I want to lose weight! Food, advertisements and temptations are not in control of me any longer! I want to be around for a looong time yet, to see my Granddarlings grown with families of their own and those Great Granddarlings grown with families of their own.

When we learn to take control of: what, when and how we eat, our exercise, whether walking, running or working out, we will be satisfied with ourselves. Don’t compare ourselves to others…God made each of us unique! With His guidance and help we can do any and all things! You see, His promise is long life, but we have to do our part too! Are you with me? 🙂

Love and Blessings,

~Judy♡~


How Old Are You?

“How old are you?” Do you ever get that question? What does age mean to you? Our society is consumed with age and their idea of age! There are more plastic surgeries in these times than ever! Have you ever considered why they call it ‘plastic’ surgery? 🙂

What is ‘age’ anyway? When you reach a certain age, people look at you differently! That certain age is ‘retirement age’, ‘senior citizen age’, etc. Have you ever wondered what the term elderly refers too? You may see on a sign on the highway or on the news where an elderly person is missing! What does this mean, what do they consider elderly?  Now here is a definition of old age:

“Old age (also referred to as one’s eld) consists of ages nearing or surpassing the average life span of human beings, and thus the end of the human life cycle. Euphemisms and terms for old people include seniors (American usage), senior citizens (British and American usage) and the elderly. Old people have limited regenerative abilities and are more prone to disease, syndromes, and sickness than other adults. The boundary between middle age and old age cannot be defined exactly because it does not have the same meaning in all societies. People can be considered old because of certain changes in their activities or social roles. Examples: people may be considered old when they become grandparents, or when they begin to do less or different work—retirement.”  Now isn’t this interesting? 🙂

Okay, I am a MiMi (grandmother) of 5 wonderful Granddarlings! I no longer have to work in ‘Corporate America’, Thank God, and I love and enjoy life to it’s fullest!  I have not been to a doctor in 20+ years; I take no medicine…not even aspirin..get no ‘flu vaccinations, and don’t get sick! I walk and live in DIVINE HEALTH!

I learned a long time ago that Jesus took on Himself all of my sicknesses, diseases, infirmities and sins when He went to the cross! I also learned that stress and worry are not from God but from satan! Worry and stress, which is brought about by worry, can and do bring on all kinds of sickness and disease! Jesus took on my sickness so why would I want to take it back? I once was a worrier…about everything including being ‘too happy’! Then I learned that God is my Source for every need, desire and want…not man and certainly not me! I learned to TRUST Him with everything in my life and I have found total peace, happiness, joy and fulfillment! I love life and living it 100%!

Now, back to ‘age’!  We are a spirit that lives in a housing called a body! Your spirit (the real you) does not age…it matures, not ages! Your body, the housing, is what ages, wrinkles, shrivels  and dries up. If you feed your body with nutritious foods, keep it hydrated with plenty of  water and keep it strong and agile with plenty of movement, you will slow down the ‘aging’ process of your body!  Have you ever felt like you were no older than 20 or 21, only to look in the mirror and be shocked? 🙂 Well, this is because the real you, your spirit is young…mature (hopefully) but young! Ever heard the saying, ‘you’re only as old as you feel’? Well, that is true! Fortunately, I come from a family of young feeling, acting, living people! I remember my Nana at the age of 90 looking in the mirror and saying, ‘good gosh!’ When I asked her what was wrong she said ‘look at all those wrinkles’!  She was 90 years young and had less wrinkles than most people at 70! 🙂 If you listen to the ‘world’ it will make you ‘old’! Listen to your spirit, the real you, enjoy life…every minute of it…and most importantly get to know God intimately and learn to TRUST Him with every thing in your life! He knows your needs before you do and He loves you unconditionally!  Happy long healthy life to all of you! ♡

Love and Blessings, ~Judy♡~
