Today is the National Day of Prayer. I pray that each of you will be blessed in a special way and that God will protect you, comfort,encourage, strengthen you and let you feel his love. You are not alone. He will never leave nor forsake us. His angels are all around us. Cast your cares upon him for surely he cares all about us! Let us continue to trust in the word and believe. Never give up. Stay focused! God is working things out for your good. Shalom Peace and Love!
It seems that fear is prevailing rampantly however we must not let our hearts be trouble. Fear cripples and makes us sick. There is good fear such as the fear of snakes . Everyone doesn’t fear snakes or running in a burning building on the verge of collapsing and that is ok. Fear strangles us. All of us become fearful sometimes however when it does we must get control of it and seek peace. Peace should be like an umpire over our spirit and soul. Find that quiet place and rest knowing that the future can be better that the past or present. Have a good day! Seek out someone to serve today with a call ,text or any means virtually. Shalom Peace Love
This too shall pass. This is not the time to give up. This is not a normal time that we are living in now. However things are not over . We have to dig within and find the positive. Things to do at home.
Here’s a list of tips to help get through this time:
- Wake up daily with a heart of gratitude.
- Start a hobby that is simple.
- Read only positive books and inspirational materials. write your own book.
- Reach out and call text someone
- Go outside and breathe fresh air
- Walk around outside and appreciate nature and listen to the birds
- Pray that things will get better.
- Push away from watching news consistently. It is not healthy nor encouraging
- Avoid negativity
Don’t quit . Don’t fear. Stay in the now with a positive expectation. Everything will be alright. How can i say that because in less than a week, I have loss a neice ,a cousin, my sister just went from hospital to nursing home-rehab, my friend mom just went to hospice and I could go on and on but I have learned that things are going to happen and when it does we have to be thankful and go through the process the best way we can with hope. I pray for each of you reading this today that things will get eteer and better for you. Shalom Peace and Love.
Thought for the week- Quote from William Jennings Bryan -“Destiny is not a matter of chance, It is a matter of choice-It is not a thing to be waited for , it is a thing to be achieved.” So with that being said Let’s choose wisely because sometimes there are no next time or time to do over. Have a good week. Shalom Peace Love!
Good morning everyone! With so much going on in the world now let’s encourage hope,peace , comfort for all of of us. Yes the covid 19 is the main news however let’s not forget babies are still being born, people are dying, divorcing, getting married, losing jobs, working from home, and children out of school. Everyday life has changed. Let’s not allow the stay at home order to bring about isolation and disruption even in the homes. This is a time to reflect, pray and learn to do something different. Let’s pray for the sick and those who mourn any type loss. Now is the time to pray without ceasing(stopping) God has everything in control, he never leaves us nor forsake us! Let’s continue in hope and continue to believe that everything is going to be alright. Shalom Peace Love!
Now is the time to reinvent, restore and refresh during these times of unexpected changes. We must step back and think of ways to recover and continue on our journey. Quitting is never and option for those with a clear vision. One thing for certain is that we must be ready to adapt and make the necessary changes to improve and reinvent. I had to step back and acknowledge the overwhelm and the stresses of being on autopilot which included being there for family, working, being a caregiver, and having to deal with so many family losses due to sickness and death, etc. In the process of all these things ,we must acknowledge the stress and the overwhelm and decide how to deal with all the challenges. When we acknowledge and then make a decision and come up with a plan then we can move forward. During that period in my life I had to learn to take better care of myself and to bring a balance and stay focus. The key is having a balance in work and personal life. My mission is to assist others in their journey to a well balanced life at work ,with relationships and life as a whole.

It is very important to stay connected and hopeful through these times. Reach out and contact someone by text, email, phone, social media or any means necessary to help you get through. Some are feeling isolated but don’t feel that way. This is a temporary situation and this too will pass. Our lives have to adjust to what is going on however we must remain safe. Get creative and think of things that you can do at home. Remember to go outside in you yard to enjoy the sunshine. Keep hoping for the best and don’t give up. Doing some type of movement or exercise around the house will help you feel better. We should try to think of the positive things and let’s be grateful .
With so much negativity around us today, we must remain stable and positive. We know that a brighter day is coming in our lives , our situations and our homes. Be not discouraged, better days are ahead. we must continue believing and hoping for the best. Reach out by phone, text or social media to communicate with someone that maybe you haven’t talked to in awhile. Keep looking for the best and the best will find you. Shalom Peace and Love! Linda P. Thompson
I agree that there is alot of things going on today in the world however we must stay encouraged and fear not. Things are going to get better if we just believe. Let’s try to find ways to not become anxious and depressed. It will take alot of work but it can be done. We must read inspirational things, reach out to someone , serve someone, pray, think and speak positively and not give up.
It is always a wonderful time to set aside time to revisit some things and make changes. I have been away from the blog for a few days to do just that. In everything we do we must take out time for ourselves and refresh. We have people who count on us. Let’s take time to do self inventory and make positive changes and be a light to others.
