I was called everything but a child of God…skinny, little, flat chested, no booty, anorexic, and my personal favorite…a stick. Kids can be so cruel. I look back at the younger photo of me and I can laugh, but at the same time I was happy. I may have looked a mess, but every article of clothing I had on was grateful! While my mom and dad wasnt in my life, people stepped in and took care of me! They bought me things that helped boosted my SELF-esteem. To others I could’ve been the butt of many jokes, but I was really appreciative of what people did for me. I never thought I wasn’t pretty, but I always wished to look my age like other girls. In today’s time, cruel words are sending these kids straight on a suicide mission. Just because someone does not look like you, it does not give you the right to shame them. You never know what somebody is going through!
Even now, I don’t like people looking at me (why public speaking & singing makes me uncomfortable), being around a lot of people gives me anxiety (why I tend to stay to myself), hearing other people talk about people gives me anxiety (why my friends are the sweetest), and I don’t like being the center of attention ( number one reason I didn’t want a wedding).
Be careful with your words! They can give life, or they can give death!
Let’s talk about God’s faithfulness for a moment….
So yesterday was Easter right, and I was sitting at church really just thinking about how much God has done for me. I was thinking about the love that Jesus showed a dying world when he gave his life for us. I was thinking about all the times God could have given up on me, and all the times I could’ve died way too early. I thought about all of God’s promises and how he has never let me down. I thought about all the times I didn’t tithe right, but he still provided for me. I can’t name everything, because God has done so many things for me!
Today my husband turns a year older, and I am so excited!! Call me crazy, but I am excited to grow older with him! We met when we were 12, and now we are both 27. I have known, have loved, and have gone crazy over him for over half of my life now!
He is not really big on celebrating his birthday, but deep down inside I know he really wants to feel special on his special day. I am the same way! I say I don’t really care about my birthday, but deep down I kinda do. When you have gone most of your life with it just been another day, you just kind of expect that moving forward…but if someone makes you feel special – that is just even better! Continue reading
“So you must show mercy to others, or God will not show mercy to you when he judges you. But the person that shows mercy can stand without fear at the judgment.”
James 2:13 NCV
One thing about being free is that we have free will to make our own choices. We can Continue reading
It’s Story Time!!
Everyone, meet Teddy! Teddy was a birthday gift to Trinity from her Teddy Bear (God-Dad). Teddy is a Beta fish, and as far as I know a very “low” maintenance pet.
Well I was wrong! First off, Trinity NEVER feeds him. So I bet you think I feed the fish, right? WRONG! Poor fish. Teddy has gone days at a time without eating his little Beta food.
