    I was dealt a hard fact in the last couple of weeks and I had to realize that grudges, anger and not speaking to someone who is not completely walking with God, was hard for me to accept. I helped a couple who in turned did not (in my mind), appreicate the help. When it was time for them to move out, frustration levels were high and I was ready for them to move. In the end, it did not turn out to good and some things  were said from this couple (mainly the boyfriend), which he is the one that has some mental issues and I of course blew my stack but I ask for forgiviness and prayed for them as well. I know that does not make it right but my heart was hurting and I fought back in the only way I knew how. We both go to the same church (he just recently joined), and he has asked for forgiviness from me & my husband which I did but my husband, I am not to sure. One of our church members said that this was a test and it was for me to pass. I did not think about that at first but now I believe he was right. I am no longer holding on to the anger or grudges against this couple but I am starting to feel like I am not doing something right in my life. Forgiveness is something that I need to work on. I try very hard to keep a straight face but the discouragement is there staring me down. I wonder, what can I do to change me to be a better person for myself. Is that being selfish?? God presence is high in my life and my heart. I know he will see me through these trials and guide me through this storm but I can honestly say, it gets hard.  Thank you Jesus for all that you do and will do in my life. Amen

    A Good Day

    Monday, November 12, 2007, 1:51 PM [General]

    I have been having alot of good day's lately and I thank God for it. Blessing comes in many forms and I got rid of one yesterday (yeah). You try to help someone with all your heart but when you are taken granted for then that is when you have to walk away. No, I am not speaking of my mother (I will always be by her side until the good Lord calls her), but I am talking about how unappreciated people can be. I guess I am just letting off some steam and needed a place to put it. If there is one place I know I can go to and that is God with all my problems and he will relive me of them. I just want to say thank you Lord for all that you do and will do, in Jesus name, Amen.

    God is truly good in my life, thank you Jesus. Tuesday I put an ad out searching for a washer/dryer set and if anyone could donate a  set because right now I am not financially able to purchase one. Well, my prayers were answered not more than 2 hours later,a wonderful couple donate their old washer/dryer set to me to help with the care of my mom. I thank him and his wife so much because the strain of me going to the laundrmat on a weekly basis was starting to get to me and my bad back. I could not believe my eyes, the set looks like brand new. I must have shook their hands a hundred times and just saying thank you, thank you. So I want to say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Lord Jesus Christ you are truly showing favor in my life. I just love the Lord for everything he does for me and my family, for all the blessing that he doing and going to do. Hallehula, hallehula, hallehula, in Jesus name, Amen

    Quiet time

    Tuesday, October 23, 2007, 10:56 AM [General]

    I woke up a little late today because my mom was sleeping alittle longer than usual. That was good for me because I got the chance too relax this morning. I am going to try and get my mom to do some exercise and activities. She is not to good with this but this is something she needs to do to stay healthy. I am feeling a little depressed this go around because I was in school and had to stop to care for my mom. It is not that I did not want to care for her, it is just I was about to graduate in May and continue my education to get my master's degree in Social work which is something I truly love. I wish my sister had came to me earlier before the semster had started, then I would have been able to schedule my classes alot better this semster. Oh well, I need to stop crying over spilled milk and do what God has ask me to do. Please keep me and my family in prayer.

    My mom

    Sunday, October 21, 2007, 9:40 PM [General]

    Today was a good day. I went to church for the second Sunday and I was very happy about that. I fell asleep a few times but was still glad to be there. I am my mother's caregiver and usually I am up all times of the night with her because of her alzhemier's disease. I love my mom very much and would do anything to help her. I was in school but I have decided to stop this semster and go back in the spring. My feelings were hurt really bad but I know in the long run it will be okay.
