I don’t know about you, but lately it seems like all I do is hear complaining. Complaining about jobs, family and more. I have tried to stay out of the cycle of complaining and look at the bright side of life. When someone asks how are you today? Say “I am wonderful!”…. They may say “really?” say “I sure am!” See what happens, Every day is a gift and we are the must blessed country in the world. We have any things to be Thankful for, if we just look. God’s blessings on you day, Candy
I have been thinking a lot about life lately. It seems to be going faster the older I am getting. I am blessed to be in a family where I know I am loved. I have my parents, husband, children and now even grandchildren. I have been trying to spend as much time with my grand-boys as I can. I seem to sing silly little songs and them seem to like them and got me thinking my grandma always sang a silly little song to me…”Candy Sue I love you” Something I hadn’t thought about in awhile… Precious Memories!
I have learned that some circumstances may seem to overwhelming to bear. I wrote this poem at a time like that.
I have heard when a door closes a window opens………
Show me the window; Lord the door has been shut.
Is it time to send a sign? I know this isn’t mine to decide,
I’m down on my knees and crying out
Overwhelmed and filled with doubt….please
Show me the window Lord.
I am coming to you ….oh where do I start
In need of rest… Lord come sit in my heart.
Things happen for a reason; I don’t know why
Are you making an adjustment in my life?
Show me the window, Lord
I feel closed in and need some air.
Am I really your treasure that you hold so dear?
I sit and reflect on all the events ….to me it doesn’t make sense.
Incline your ear Lord and hear my prayer.
My heart is broken and I am feeling crushed
What was meant for evil….Lord, I know you will make it good
Show me the window Lord
Just when I think you may not be here….
I see your glorious radiance shine through the panes.
Pointing the way to a brighter day
Thank you Lord….. . All had been open
I just learned to knock.

What a difference a year makes!
This week it seems every where I go I am faced with breast cancer…. I attended the funeral of a friend that had stage 4 breast cancer. Each morning I would pray for a miracle for her and her family. She got her miracle she is now resting in Jesus’ arms. She leaves behind her husband and 3 children. She fought so hard and is an amazing example. I will miss my friend.
I also visited a dear friend in the hospital that had a double Mastectomy, Visited another friend that had reconstructive surgery from her mastectomy and got a phone call from another that just found out she has breast cancer. I am wondering if the Lord is giving me a sign to spread the word.
Ladies we all need to have our mammograms and self breast exams.
God’s blessings, Candy
When I was a kid my Grandma stayed at our home quite a bit. When I would get home from school she would hide, but when I open the door I knew she was there. She could never figure out how I knew……The secret I could smell her PalMall cigarettes. In the mornings she would have toast and hot chocolate waiting. The toast…well,the butter melted just right on every square inch of it and to this day I can’t get that perfect. There are so many things I love and miss about her. When my grandma was unable to stay alone she moved into to my folks home. I am thinking that was the greatest gift my parents gave to me and my family. The love for the elderly and family!
Grandma has been gone for years, but I think of her often and now I see her in things we do. Grandma would tell me when I was stressed with life “Can- better days are coming!” I do have to believe they are
Today’s lesson- Count your blessings, not your troubles. Thanks Grandma
I would love to hear your “Another Valuable Lesson” Moment. You can comment me your lesson.
Have a great day, Candy
“Greatest man in history, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him… He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.”
“Lost time is never found again” By Ben Franklin
I wondered what they did in Ben Franklin’s day?
All the distractions we have today.
We have so many things that compete for our time. I deactivated my Facebook for awhile I just need a break from sitting watching a screen of what is going on in our lives. I am hoping to get more done!
Have a blessed day, Candy
