Week 16 ~ Why Is It So Hard?

Why is it so easy to say what we think and feel to people about our government, world situations, life in general, but when it comes to telling those close to us how we feel about them it’s practically impossible? Maybe we came from a family who didn’t know how to show their feelings or express how they felt. Maybe we are afraid of looking foolish or being hurt or humiliated!

We need to take some lessons from children! They will look at you and unexpectedly say, “I love you”, “You are pretty” or “You’re my friend”! The Word of God says ‘out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks’ Matthew 12:34, so why is it so hard to say, “I love you”; “I need you”; “You mean every thing to me”; “You are my best friend” or “You are Pretty” or “You are Handsome”?

Words are so important! Words set things into motion! They direct our lives. They can be sweet, gentle, happy, encouraging or they can be cruel, hateful, hurtful, belittling! Words spoken can be comforting and endearing years and years after spoken into our lives or they can still bring feelings of hurt! Words can never be taken back and they are never forgotten.

Time is passing by faster and faster, so don’t wait until it is too late! Start today to let your feelings toward loved ones show and out of the abundance of your heart let your mouth speak!

Have an Abundantly Blessed Life!

Love and Blessings,

A New Year! A New Beginning!

Some people make New Year’s Resolutions, but I don’t! I like to reflect on the past year and seek ways to grow and opportunities for new accomplishments for the new year! I love watching God work and I just want to draw even closer to Him and enjoy watching Him work in my life and the lives of others!

There are so many things I want to accomplish in 2012 so I am praying about them, listening to hear and seeing which way my Daddy leads me! I just know that it is going to be an exciting year because I feel an excitement in my spirit!

One thing I am going to do, is post more often on my Blog! I am setting a goal for a once weekly post! Okay, I am committing to a weekly post!

Last week Paul and I took a ‘day trip’ to Old Fort Parker, the site of the kidnapping by the Comanches of Cynthia Anne Parker in 1836. We both love old historic sites and it was a fun day! I am going to start posting more of my photos from these ‘trips’ to share!

   This wasn’t part of the Old Fort, but on grounds near by! Love old log cabins, buildings, etc.

Also love trees and paths and roads! Especially when they make an arch over the road!

Then there are also bridges! 🙂
