Living with Intent - No Regrets

What a sweet way to wake up.... my Sono System has an alarm that allows me to wake up to beautiful music.  I have it set to Pandora and choose Dino (Piano).  Ahhh so beautiful to wake to songs of praise and hope.

Isn't that what life is about?

Centering ourselves on "What it's all about"

Living for Christ is satisfying and fulfilling.  Anything less is empty, frustrating and futile.

HE gives our life meaning and purpose.

It's been a good life for me!!!

Sure there has been some VERY Rocky times.
Climbing the mountain of life hasn't always been an easy trip.


 But in the mist of those storms and rocky terrain HE has been my shelter and guide.  Well, actually the worst has been when I have let go of HIS hand.  Non intentional, just forgetting HE is there for me and I'm not alone.

Looking at my photo's this past few years amazes me.  The expression "my life flashed before me" is a little how I feel looking at the pictures on my iPhone or Computer.  ahhh the places I have been and the people I have shared my life with.  Family and Friends.... beautiful.

I've been so blessed growing up with an amazing Dad and Mom (wow, miss my Dad!).  Such a rich heritage of a Godly Family.  And it's true the family that prays together stay's together.  It's when
we do not center ourselves in HIM that we lose  our relationships with Family.

Living life Centered in HIM

Living life with Intent

Living life with Purpose

Living life .... knowing WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT"

Waking up and counting my blessings... Wonderful Faithful Husband, Beautiful loving Family,  Great Friends .

The Number One Blessing... 

Christ loves me and payed the price for my sins.  
Because of HIM
I  have the opportunity to live with Intent and  with no Regrets.

JUST MY THOUGHTS:


Never before in my life have I seen such segregation in our Nation. But it makes perfect sense. People need a sense of "Belonging".  You know what groups I am talking about with out me mentioning them in my blog.

People have always demonstrated a need to identify with a group. This is how they think they can "find and validate themselves" .  People have a need to feel....  to feel that they are a part of something bigger than themselves. To feel they "belong".  This may include fighting for a cause.  Sense of Purpose.. yes a sense of "I'm ok because I belong to a group of people who belive I am ok".

Oh my..... Yes, We as a Nation have lost our way.  Divided (isn't that what the ememy wants?  To divide and conquer!!! 

Like Sheep led a stray by those who would like to destroy the foundation of our Nation. 

ONE Nation UNDER GOD, indivisible, with Liberty and just FOR ALL.             For ALL those who believe in One Nation Under God! 

Then because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.    Philippians 4:7 

What a comfort to know I BELONG to Christ! A Living God. A God of Love, Purpose and Hope. I have found "who I am" and "why I am" and "what my life is about".  This brings me peace and hope for tomorrow.


Praying for our Nation.  
What will it take to turn our hearts? Tragedy Unites People.. maybe that is what it will take to draw this Nation to it's knees and reach out to find the TRUTH.  I sure hope this isn't the way.  I hope it's when we STAND UP and SPEAK the TRUTH.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, 
THE TRUTH and the life: 
no man cometh unto the Father, 
but by me. John 14:6

A life worth Living -

My Thought today




The things of the world that we think are so big and important and  are what we "need"  to satisfy us really  have NO SUBSTANCE and easily fall through us... like a colander.  That is why the things of world are never enough.  We are continually striving and trying to fill our lives..... We are never really satisfied.  (overeat, indulge, addictions, ... trying to satisfy themselves). Empty Lives

The only  real thing that has Substance and Form ...  is the LOVE of GOD.  He is the only thing we NEED because HE is REAL and he Satisfies our Soul. We are Complete and Full when We have the Love of Christ.  

Silly analogy but oh so true.   We are like a Colander .... and when  get  shaken up by events and circumstances .... the "small"  non important  things of the world that we have filled our lives with.... fall through and we are left, lonely, hopeless, fearful  and  EMPTY. 

Only the substance of a Christ centered life remains in us when we  are shaken.  He and His Word Give us purpose. 

Today I am thankful that we have the opportunity to server a loving God who fills us with HIS POWER and TRUTH.  In Him we are whole and Full of Life. A Life worth Living.

Writing a Book titled: Fred Likes Donuts

Yes,  A  Crazy title of  the book I am writing for my Grand kids  
"Fred Likes Donuts" 

Sometimes it's the ridiculous and silly things that catch our attention.  Eating "Donuts"... really??  Probably one of the worse things to eat.  No nutritional value. Ahhhh,  it is nothing less than pure carnal pleasure to eat a donut.  I hate to say this but I use to love having a warm freshly made glazed donut  .... and Crispy Cream Donuts tapped into decedent treat. Warm sweet melt in your mouth treat.  

                 Gheeze where am I going with this.... well  

I had the joy of  taking my Grand kids once a week  to school.  Of course the incentive was.. "be ready on time  kids and we will stop for a donut on the way to school".  

Soooo
One morning  I asked my Grand daughter on the way to school “what are you going to do today”?  She   answered “I don’t know”  …. I then quickly responded back to her saying  “Fred likes Donuts….  that’s what you can do today”…and of course I captured her attention with my silly response.  Here is a preview of the  "book" I want to write for my Grand kids.  The Title:

Fred Likes Donuts

The first letter in name 

Fred 
will remind  you....  "F" stands for  Family and Friends.   

Each day start out by setting a goal to make a new friend or spend time with a friend or family.  Seek opportunities to "be a good friend... brother, sister, cousin, grand kid, daughter, son, nephew, niece"... etc.

---------------
The first letter  in the word Likes
will remind  you  "L" stands for Learn 
Each day start out by setting a goal to seek opportunities to LEARN something new.  It could be as simple as learning  the meaning of a word.  It can be learning about others... or learning about yourself.  Learning is what helps us grow and improve ourselves.  when you 

Love to learn and 
L earn to Love ....
This is very powerful. 
------------ Next

The first letter  in the word Donuts 
will remind  you 
about everyday  about making a 
Difference.  You Can Make a Difference! 

Each day start out by setting a goal to seek opportunities to make a difference.  

It is all about the choices you make each day
It is  all about making good choices
It is about being a good Deed Doer
It is all about making a 
positive Difference
for
You and those around You
Making a difference is as simple as...
Be Positive
Be Helpful
Be Courteous
Be Kind
Be Thoughtful
Be a Good Listener
Be Caring
Be Forgiving
Be Sensitive to others
Be the Best at everything you do
Be a good  DEED DOER
                                       Can you think of some?

---------------------
Ask yourself  At the End of the Day:

Fred    
  Did I make any new FRIEND?
  Was I kind and helpful to my FRIENDS or FAMILY ?
Likes 
  What is something new I LEARN today? 

Donuts 
  Did I make good choices today?  Choices that will make a  positive DIFFERENCE ….for me, for someone else ,   for the maybe ….the world ? Did I do any good Deeds?
