Who do you want to be?

Hot-Fudge-SundaeOkay, this is what I’m talking about =)  Yummy hot fudge sundae with a little brownie on the side!

(Would love to have it but decided to wait on actually eating it… so enjoying the picture)

Thanks for all the wonderful birthday wishes.  

It truly made my day!

 

As I was looking at the various greetings, there were a number from my friends at Louisiana College, what fun to hear from them… if that is you, thanks again.

Seeing the notes from my college friends reminded me of a special time, an AH HA moment, I had while in college.  I was a cheerleader (yea I know, big surprise =)  We were all standing around and I  heard some girls talking. What I heard changed my life.  One of them said “You know that Jackie Holsomback… I’ve never heard her say a bad word about anyone.”

WOW – Right then I decided I wanted people to think that way about me and to make that a priority. Since that day I have made it a point to look for good and say only good about others.

Jackie was indeed a wonderful gal.  I don’t know if I ever told her about that incidence, but I hope I did.  She is no longer with us, she is singing and ‘cheering’ in heaven now. Jackie made a positive difference to me,  her friends, family, and all those around her.  What a legacy!  (January 18 was also her birthday)

 . . .

Who do you want to be? What do you want others to say about you? When they say your name, what characteristic do they think about?  

It’s a choice.  We can decide today ‘who we want to be”, what kind of person, how we live our life. We can decide to change a pattern by starting a new one… just Decide.

. . .

Isn’t it great to have so many choices? Colorballoons15

CHOOSE HAPPY – 2015

relaxed senior couple standing in the sunflower garden

CHOOSE HAPPY!  YES!  We all have a choice!  

It may sound strange but you can be happy – joyful – content …  No matter what is going on in your life, no matter what has happened, or is happening, and no matter what your fears and inhibitions.

It’s more than a positive attitude, it’s choices we make everyday, our outlook on life, our faith. It’s knowing that there is more, there is hope, and always another option.

You don’t have to just ‘take it’ and accept what happens… God has more for you.  He loves you and has great things in store for you.

This year out theme is –

Fun Fearless Female – WOW the WORLD 2015

Discover You

 life-challenges-are

The other day I had breakfast with a friend she shared with me about a really hard time she had been having.  You see this wonderful lady who I see as beautiful, talented, and soooo smart, doesn’t see herself that way.  She recently had a time of crying out to the Lord asking and begging Him to show her gifts, her talents.  She told me that she really believed that He had overlooked her, that God just did not give her even one gift.

 

It took a lot of courage for her to share that with me and I so applaud her bravery.  Sometimes we just have to reach out. She reached out and talked to her sister who gave her some wonderful input. As she kept asking God ‘Why?’ He began to show her through other people that, indeed, He had given her gifts, that she does have talent, and He is affirming her of these gifts.  Hallelujah!

.

You too, my dear friends, have gifts and talents and even if YOU can’t see them, ask God to show you.  Talk to a special friend, your sister, someone who loves you and knows you well.  They can tell you the good things they see in you. Not everyone is going to have a ‘big’ personality, not everyone is singer, painter, artist, etc.  There are so many other gifts. Seek the Lord and He will show you.  He didn’t leave anyone out, not even you.

. 

Trust, Believe, and He will show you.  This could be your day, week, and your year to discover You!

Til Next Time –

Many Blessings –

Discovery

5

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Are you all about resolutions and trying new things?  Have you looked at last year and decided changes to make?  Well, that is NOT what I want to share with you today. WHEW!  Aren’t you glad? No lists, no things to do.

 .

Many of you know that the last two years for me have been about ‘Releasing’.  Yes, releasing ‘stuff’, control, my thoughts releasing areas in my schedule, releasing THINGS.  There’ve been places in my heart and mind that God has worked on me to release to a new way of thinking and living.

 .

Now this year, I feel like this is going to be a year of Discovery.  I can already feel God beginning to show me new things about myself.  I have a big new project… ummmm am I ready to let the news out????  This blog has been a part of it as well as the speaking opportunities that I have had this year.  I might wait a little longer to tell you, but let me just say, it is a new thing I have ‘Discovered’ about myself and about God.

 

If you were to put a name on a theme for your New year… what would it be?  So funny, as I shared with my sister about 2015 being my year of Discovery, she said her’s a year of ‘Restoration’.  

 .

What is yours?  What do you feel God is telling you?  

  • Adventure

  • Discovery

  • Recovery

  • Releasing

  • Restoration

  • Rejuvenate

  • Rest

     

(Gosh a lot of these words are “R”… I’ll have to think on that.)

This isn’t about Resolutions or a list of ‘To Dos’ or ‘Don’t Dos’.  It’s about direction.  Where do you see God leading you?

 .

This year I’ll look forward to seeing what God will help us ‘Discover’ about each other.

COMING SOON!

NEW song Previewed in Las Vegas    

 

Don’t Worry – Be Happy

th-4

Don’t worry – Be happy!  Remember that song, it’s kinda funky and fun.  It’s makes you feel good just to listen to it, that beat and the whistles.  Interestingly it is an a cappella song, no instruments.  I guess I never really paid attention to that, just listened to it and enjoyed. (from Wikipedia The “instruments” in the a cappella song is entirely overdubbed voice parts and other sounds made by McFerrin, using no instruments at all.) Pretty cool, huh?
Fun, yes, but pretty profound too –
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy 

 

Or as the Bible says… 
  • Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? (Matthew 6:27 Biblegateway)
This is a concept that many find really hard to live out.  I think that sometimes we feel that if we ‘worry’ we are showing that we care, or we think ‘we’ can control it if we are ‘worrying’ about it.  Both of these are an illusion.
Worry is negative energy that feeds on itself.  The more we worry, the more worried and upset, and anxious we are.  It can get so overwhelming that it’s easy to become paralyzed, and that is a totally non-productive and unpleasant place to be. So why do we do it?  Good question.
Let’s look again –
  • [ Do Not Worry ] “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? … (Matthew 6:25-34)
  • Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6)

 

It’s simple but not easy. 
  • Take your eyes OFF the problem, turn to God who is in control
  • Pray
  • Speak positive things into your spirit, speak the Word
  • Look carefully and see what you can do to change the problem or situation, if there is nothing you can do about it then release it
  • Release the worry and anxiety
  • Put it on the back shelf of your brain, not front and center (It isn’t going to magically disappear, but it gets smaller when you ‘move’ it)
  • Think on the good things – be grateful

 

Or simply …

Don’t worry – Be happy

( and pray)

 

 

BTW – Really good article on Bobby McFerrin – click to read- ENJOY!
Today – Bobby McFerrin – Had no idea it would be so….

 

‘Til next time –

Have a Blessed week
