Yesterday, January 17th, was my mother's birthday.   It was a sad time, she passed fifteen years ago, and is deeply missed.
It gave me time to think about my life, and how I was living it.  I am not so foolish as to believe that I could possibly live my life as she lived hers.  Times were different then, not easier, just different. Expectations were different then too!!

Remembering how things were when I grew up, I am thankful that my children are grown now.  This world has changed.  Not a place where I would want to have children and raise them.  Although, I know and understand that it is doable with GOD's help. 

This past year has taken me on quite a journey.  To places that I really did not want to go, but survived. Learning to take one moment at a time, knowing that time is precious and not promised.
That is one lesson that is particularly hard for me, I am one who loved thinking and planning ahead.  Even if my plans did not work out, I was always writing them down and trying to figure them into my life.  So every day I work on living in the moment and being thankful for those moments.  


1 Corinthians 10:13Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not [a]adjusted and [b]adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistanceand power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to [c]a landing place), that you may be capableand strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

Feeling great right about now!! 

It took a while but I found and downloaded the Bible, so I can get my Word.


Psalm 1 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
