When your heart is hurting, present your needs to God. Through Christ, you have unlimited access to the Father 24/7

Romans 5:1-4: Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Once a mother, always a mother. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers around the world, but most importantly, to my mother. Thanks mama for the nine months you have carried me. Thanks for all the sacrifices you have made. Thanks for the love, the warmth, and the care you have given us. I can still remember cuddling up in your lap when we were at church or at one of our neighbor’s house.When I was hungry you fed me. Even when we were down to the last slice of bread, you would break it in halves, one half for me, one half for Errol and nothing for you. You were my eyes when I could not see. You carried me when I could not walk. Thanks for the values you have passed on to me.Thanks mama, for making me feel special. Words cannot express how grateful I am that God had chosen you to be my mother. I am not much now, but I am who I am because of you and I am proud..Thanks

Love And Affection: The Perfect In-Law Relationship

A Perfect in-law relationship must be un-hampering, un-interfering,  un-criticizing

Whether we be mother or father, bride or groom, the safe rule for our happiness is to take things as we find them, take pleasure in the assets, not go searching for flaws, and not ever for a single second permit ourselves the weakness of feeling sorry for ourselves.

If we who are of yesterday (or the day before that) would have the affection of those of today given to us freely, we must ourselves be free in the sense  of being impersonally independent.

We all know that nothing is harder to build than this impersonality of mind, and one moment’s relaxed indulgence in self-pity will bring it all crashing down. The first step in the achievement of impersonality is keeping our thoughts away from every trend that is sentimentally focused upon ourselves by thinking of something else–never mind what.

The one great struggle that each and every one of us who belong alone–by that is meant all those who are widowed or single and whose children or sisters and brothers have married–must make is never to give clinging to impulses a chance to develop.

We hear much about dieting and taking daily dozens and doing all sorts of irksome things to preserve physical, and relatively little about the unrelaxing exercise of plain common sense in achieving mental beauty by adjusting the capital “I” to its relative proportion
