Ought Against Any??

Mark 11:25 KJV  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your tresspasses.

Boy, this subject can be touchy, but well worth the time ,in the end. Have you ever been mistreated by a family member, CLOSE FRIEND, or a co-worker, or in some cases, a complete stranger??? I HAVE.
Sometimes, you can do all you can to resolve an issue with someone, and just when you think, ok, it is all good now, and ''back to normal''....BOOM, everything explodes again. I have seen this ALOT  lately, with different people, and I have to say, some people have really shocked me, by some of their actions, and some of how they handle little petty things, and ''some people tend to produce a stuck-up, I never do ANYTHING , WRONG ATTITUDE!!!!!!  I have had this attitude expressed to me .... I have been there over the past few years... AND just recently!!!!! but there comes a time when you have to be the '' better person'', and go on. As my mother always says,''Baby girl, Life is too short, to worry about stuff like this'', ''so, Just forget about it, and be the better person in this situation.'' I have taken this advice a lot.  BUT, if I am not careful, my dissapointment, anger, or whatever the issue can lead straight to a BITTERNESS.. a BITTERNESS that I do not like.

We have this thing called pride. I GOT A LOT OF IT , BTW. LOL
Proverbs 16:18 KJV Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
I have to swallow my pride.. It is not right, and I do not want to fail Him.
Sometimes, LIFE hurts. The word, '' OUGHT ''  means anything. Anything can be a co-worker,jealousy,  competition,talent, etc. '' AGAINST''  means ''negative''. anything that is negative. What someone said bad, negative, made fun of you, said something that was PLAIN LIES, and also USING SOMETHING FROM YOUR PAST to destroy you or your future!!!!!! This is NOT OF GOD.  ANY is simply ANYBODY!!!! a STRANGER, blood relative, close friend.. AND let me just say, they probably ARE NOT YOUR TRUE FRIEND, if they do this...!!!!!
SO.......... if we have ought, we need to go to that person. BOY, this is a BIG ONE for me.. remember PRIDE????? LOL, LOL  Tell that person, you were hurt, Don't deny it. Don't  forget it, chances are, you will never forget it, and probably, THEY WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!!!! and don't justify what they did to you.. But ask them to forgive you of any wrong doing. IF they don't forgive you, it is on them, because YOU WENT TO THEM.Even if you do this, STILL expect  NOTHING in return.  You might be ''DONE'', but HEY, YOU DID WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE!!!!!
Mark 11 :26 KJV But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father forgive which is in heaven forgive your tresspasses.
We need to obey HIS command. Give it to Him, and let Him take care of us. I have to give it to Him. Trust  God for courage to STAND.. even if it takes a relationship out of your life!!!! I have had to do this in my own life. I have had friends, and close people say and do some hurtful things. You owe it to yourself to make things right.  If you go to that person, You will be a ''better person''. because it has made me learn and be a better Christian  and to trust Him like I never had before....
Phillippians 4::!3 KJV  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Thankful for this today!!

Yogi- Time and Let's GROW!!

We went on a wonderful camping trip last week!! It was beautiful weather , and  the fishing was fun too, although we did not catch anything. It had rained, previously over the past few days, and the water was really muddy. We had fun, and had some yummy food, even had Homemade Peanut Butter Bars!!!! YEE-HAW!!!
 We went swimming, and my sister and I rode the paddle boats. It was a WILD west theme, and they even had a hayride.
Warm weather for pool time, with a Mountain backdrop!!
We finally got the rest of the garden in the ground today!! It was a nice, pretty day to work outside!!
Cucumbers , marigolds, and green beans
Pepper plants, squash, and tomatoes
I hope the garden brings nice- looking vegetables, like it has in the past. It is always fun to grow your own stuff, and watch the fruits and vegetables come in. I am always encouraged, by it. It takes me back to my childhood. I have many fond memories, of my Grandmaw, my Aunt Leila, and Grandmaw Rollins gardening. I will never forget when my Aunt Leila showed me how to did potatoes from the ground, I thought that was the grandest thing!!! and STILL DO btw!!!

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper  and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
3 John 1:2 KJV

My Mother, My Friend

 I am very thankful for my mother. She has taught me so much over the years. she has loved me unconditionally. she has seen my at my worst, and has always been there through whatever life may bring. she was my mother when i really needed her to be, and now, that i am older she is my FRIEND!!! and she is still my mother...

She can make biscuits and gravy like nobody's business, and can whip up a banana pudding that can make you sick as a dog, because you eat it until YOU GET SICK!!!! LOL
 Seems like whatever she does, she always does it so right, and makes me wonder,''HOW DOES SHE DO IT??'' I love our special shopping trips, and fun  things we do together, and never want to take that for granted. Even a walk in the park is sooo fun with her... and she has the funniest laugh!!!!! LOL  One thing I REALLY  like is when we look at each other, and don't have to say one word, and we know what one another is
She impresses me so much of her love for the Lord. she never quits, and is so dedicated in all that she does. If only I can be half the woman she is.........
She gives her all to her church and is happy at what she does. She is a caring person, and always put others before herself.  She strives to do God's will and wants to be pleasing to Him. She has certainly been a great Christian example in my life. ...  Her life speaks volumes  and her light shines, oh, so bright.
She is a true example of the Proverbs 31 woman. I DO CALL HER BLESSED... I love my mother dearly, and want her to know, i still want to be just like her, ''when I grow up!!!! '' 

also, i want to wish my mother- in - law a very Happy Mother's Day!!! I love you, Jan !!! Thanks for being such a hard working woman and for being so caring,  and for raising a fine, Christian Man..!! I LOVE YOU!!

Proverbs 31:28 KJV Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth  her.

All of us can not ''preach'' God's love for man, But all of our lives can tell How well we understand Christ's way, His special plan.

I have been studying lately on just ''being me''. lol.. i know a lot of you are probably laughing right now, because if you truly ''know me'', then you would say, ''well,you do that all the time.''..... this is oh, so true!!!  i try to be the same everywhere i go, and this is no fronts, acts, or put- ons... i am very straight forward. i will sometimes give my own opinion if it is not needed, and i am  NOT  ashamed to tell you what i think.
I have my own personal style, and try to be a simple person. i come from a simple family..

i , personally, do not put on aires for anyone. take it or leave it.  i have learned especially over the past few months, to don't accept everything  AS YOU SEE IT... CAN I GET A WITNESS????. if you are genuine, you are never wrong. i am not perfect, nor do i claim to be, but i do strive to do what's right, according to the Word of God.
Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths,
I have to put my trust in Him. even when i do not understand WHY,  I know He does...I believe in His mercy, and grace, and love. I see it EVERYDAY, EVERY MINUTE, SECOND!!! I have to have faith.. it is not always easy, but it is well worth the investment to have faith and to trust..this is not always easy, i have to put my full trust in Him.. not in myself..  DARING TO BE MYSELF, DARING TO BE DIFFERENT....!!!!

MY desire is for Him to make something beautiful of my life.
