Stop The Madness...

At some point, you've got to DO something. I hear people everyday saying how they're believing God for this or that or they want to become this or that. But, they're not DOING anything. I want to be a published writer. So I read, write, re-write, write, read, write, re-write, submit, repeat.

You say you want to lose weight, but you're not exercising or cutting back on your calories. You want to move up in your company, but you're not applying for new positions or taking classes. You want to start your own business, but you've not read on up how to do this or even taken any steps towards it.

Yet, these very same people are self-proclaimed experts on everything and talk about the 'doers'. Criticize them every chance they get, talk about how it's not going to happen or work out for them. While they sit back and watch 5 straight hours of television, with their feet propped up on the table, eating Little Debbie snack cakes, sipping on a Big Gulp, every night and basically doing nothing.

Now, if that's what you want to do, then continue doing it. But don't criticize or discourage people who are trying to work towards their dreams. Stop the madness!

James 2:17 Even so faith without works is dead.

One night at Boudreaux's changed everything...

Today is my 1 year wedding anniversary...Yayy!!! :)  This first year went by quickly.  It's strange how things happen. I was out one evening with a friend having dinner. We were having a fun time and the conversation changed to relationships. She told me that I wasn't going to meet anyone cause alls I ever do is work, go home and write.....true..true...that's was my life during that time LOL!!  My daughter was gone off living her life, so I was an empty nester and just enjoying life, pursuing my passion which is writing.

I wasn't looking for a relationship at that time, certainly wasn't thinking about getting married. I told my friend that I wasn't looking for a relationship and when God said it was time for me to get married, He'd send him to me. Well, we all know that God has a sense of humor!  Approximately 30 minutes later, I met my now husband LOL!! Even when I met him I just thought...Wow, what a nice guy!! Where'd he come from? It didn't take long before I realized he was really something special, sent from heaven above. Just like happened.

It's funny because there was a time in my life when I'd really wanted to get married and it wasn't happening and you know how folks are...Oh, you'll meet him when you least expect it...and how you would just want to tell them 'Awww Shaddup your face!!' LOL!!  Well, turns out they were right!!........

Wonderful things happen when you least expect it!!! And it happens when it's supposed to happen. So, if you're waiting for your 'special something' Just know it's on the way, and could be turning the corner right now, and headed in your direction :)

Psalms 37:4-7 “Delight yourself in the LORD; and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He will do it. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him.”

My Strange Addiction...

This show fascinates me, but after last nights episodes I have seen and heard enough. I'm not sure if this was a repeat because I don't watch it every week. This lady's addiction was eating dryer sheets?!?! Yes! dryer sheets like Bounce! First off, gross! She said the smell captivated her or something like that to start eating them. There was another lady who ate soap powder and yet another bathroom cleanser, aka Ajax, Comet, etc. BLECH!!! double puke!!

And when I thought it could get no worse. This one man, who lives as a woman, lives her life at home as a baby! Complete with bottle, diapers and a crib!! Why, didn't I turn the channel after it went off? It's like watching a train wreck....The next episode really left me in shock! This lady carried her husbands ashes everywhere she went....okay,,,but that's not the kicker. She now eats the ashes!?!?! After she said "I'm eating my husband."

*CLICK* I had to turn the TV off. LOL!!

Okay, confession time. I want to know if any of you have a secret addiction. Do you secretly eat household cleansers, house plants, couches (yes, there was an episode of a woman who couldn't stop eating the foam cushions from her couch).

English Bulldog -VS- Yorkshire Terrier

So, I want a dog.

But I'm unable to decide which one I want between an English Bulldog or Yorkshire Terrier. They're polar opposites of each other. The Bully (so so so CUTE) is big, stubborn, friendly, sleeps alot, snores and passes lots of gas. The Yorkie, tiny, cute, mischievous, and yappy.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.....but leaning towards the...................................

English Bulldog......Yay? or Nay?


Psalms 68:3 But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.
