"For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving" Timothy 1: 4:4.

"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good..." Genesis 1:31.

All my life I have struggled with self-acceptance. It didn't matter how many self-help books or inspirational books I read, the thought of loving myself was something I could not grasp. Lately, I have been asking myself, "Why can't I accept who I am that God made me to be?" The only answer that keeps coming to my mind are the tales that people kept speaking into my life. Negative tales, such as you're a bastard, you are Satan's spawn, because you were born out of wedlock, your mother should have aborted you instead of giving birth to you, everyone hates you, and the list of negative affirmations could go on and on! 

Now, you are probably wondering, why did you believe this nonsense? Well, when those negative words are spoken to you from a very young age year after year, and others just keep adding to it, it's really hard not to believe those negative words. Unfortunately, you start believing them yourself. 

How long are you going to keep believing these false accusations? Those negative words spoken in hate are a reflection of the person spewing the poison and NOT a reflection of who you are! Once you can wrap your mind around the fact that you are a unique, one-of-a-kind, original, master piece which was created by the Creator (God) himself, maybe, just maybe, you will see that you are NOT all those negative accusations that have been spoken into your life! There never has been and never will be another creation exactly like you! Once God created you, he broke the mold! Everything God makes is one-of-a-kind! God only creates that which is Good, so there is NO way that you are anything less! Love the unique piece of artwork that God made you to be!

January 2, 2014


There comes a time in a person's life when they must say, "No more, No more," whether it be to a person or a thing! This phrase has been ringing through my ears for the last few days as the New Year approached. Learn to say, "No more," to that which does not serve you in a positive way! 

What am I going to say, "No more," to? Well, negative people and phrases that they try to curse me with! I have had a family member who has been trying to get me to believe for the past nearly 41 years that hell is on Earth. This person is much older than I, and they should be much wiser; however, they spew poison from their mouth on a daily basis. When I was younger, I believed this person. I believed her lies that life was misery. Do you know what I got? I got misery, anger, pain, and heartache! However, all these venomous words are merely poison which this person uses to try to drag me down to the pits of hell that is their reality. 

WELL! Hear me say, "NO MORE, NO MORE!" If this person chooses to believe that this precious gift of life is hell, then that is their prerogative; however, I do not have to listen, and I do not have to believe their false truths.  

Say, "NO MORE, NO MORE," to the negative naysayers in your life! Look at life as the blessing it truly is! Life is what we make it, and I believe that Heaven can be right here on this beautiful home we call Earth! God Bless you all!

January 1, 2014


How do I know as of January 1 that 2014 is going to be a wonderful year? Because I have already decided that it is going to be a wonderful year! In the past four years, I have learned to be grateful for what the Good Lord has blessed me and my family with! We may not have the best of everything, we may be in a tremendous amount of debt, we may be struggling on a day-to-day basis; however, what we have is something that money cannot buy! We have each other! That gift is priceless, and one I would never want to change!

2013 has taught me many valuable lessons! One lesson I learned is that I need to focus more on those who love me and focus a lot less on those who walked out of my life a long time ago. Those people who left should no longer have any control over me, and if I am giving them control by thinking about them daily, then that needless act needs to stop right now! Those who want to be part of our lives will be there! There is no need to keep chasing friendships/relationships that have long ended! 2013 has taught me to "LET GO!" 

What is 2014 going to teach me? One thing I am going to work on right away is, "Accepting things in which I cannot change!" There are circumstances/people in our lives that will never change. We can keep hitting our heads on that brick wall and keep causing ourselves needless pain; however, that seems like a tremendous waste of time and energy! Not to mention the headaches it will cause!

So, last year's, "Letting Go" lesson has lead me to "Acceptance!" 2014 is going to be an amazing year! I know I will learn and grow, and while I'm at it, I will be grateful and thankful for each day of life that is blessed to me! May you start your 2014 with the same positive attitude! Sending you all Peace, Love, and many Blessings in 2014! ♥
