Sunday Prayer: Sacifice

Sunday Prayer: Sacifice

  Dear Lord, Why didn’t any one say that being a parent is about sacrifice?  I did understand my parents growing up, but now they makes perfect sense. Like them, I will give the shirt off my back just to keep my daughter warm while we walk three blocks to get home. I will carry her while her sleeping body can continue to rest and grow while I face the elements for us both. Regardless of what I will do for and how far I will go (to the ends of the earth to protect my girl), no one ever mentioned that it is something that I will WANT to do verses HAVE  to do. I can’t imagine the love you had for us when you sent down your only Son. So Lord, I want to thank you for always being the inspiring parent for us.  To teach us and show us leadership when we have doubt or question our methods. Thank you for showing us that there is more than one way to get our point across, and with different people, it will take different methods. Thank you for being the leader of patience, and showing us how we need to just give things time before we react. Just thank you....
Sunday Prayer: Taking Care of Yourself

Sunday Prayer: Taking Care of Yourself

Dear Lord, Thank you for opening my eyes.  I forgot who I was, and what my purpose was, but I have found me again. Under all the mommy shirts, jeans, and all day slippers, I have found my own look.  I not only take pride in taking care of myself, but I know Lord that taking care of myself is showing me that I care about Our relationship. It’s impossible to save others, if you cannot help yourself.  So Lord, January, I will be focused on me. Not to be selfish, but me in relation to my family, and basic needs. I cannot do the job you entrusted to me (motherhood, being a wife), if I do not take care of my personal well-being or happiness. Just this week alone, I noticed that my happiness is contagious. While I focus on health, style, and self-love, I know in the process I’m teaching my daughter how a woman and a mother takes care of her self and her basic needs. After all, she is my sheep, and I am her shepherd; I’m supposed to gently guide her to adulthood. Thank you....
Sunday Prayer: Change

Sunday Prayer: Change

Dear Lord, Thank you for allowing me to wake up to a New Year.  You have given me a the most wonderful start for what is hopefully for the rest of the year. In order to make it through another wonderful year, I want to always count my blessings. Every December some of us make grand promises to make changes for the new year, to make things different; however, sometimes we forget that in order to make changes, we must actively seek it. If there is a limitation in my thoughts about any changes I wish to make Lord, help me find it so that I can adjust it. All my success will depend on my faith, and my willingness to adjust. Just as you are a Lord of forgiveness, I need to remember that if I stumble one day, that I too must forgive myself. Please grant me your guidance to keep me on my path....
Sunday Prayer: Just Me

Sunday Prayer: Just Me

Dear Lord, Thank you for making me. It doesn’t matter if my lips are too full, or the curves of my thighs. Not even my dress size. I am who I am because you made me unique. There are times when I fall prey to thoughts of wishing for things that I do not have, but I need to remind myself that everything I have now is a gift. When I look into that mirror Lord, not one word of disdain will leave my mouth. I will praise what I see, because what you made was good. I just want to say thank you Lord for making me just as I am....
Sunday Prayer: Life

Sunday Prayer: Life

Dear Lord, I thank you every day for the gift of life. Every morning when I wake up, I know it is a gift. I wake up knowing that you have bestowed upon me another day. The day is not guaranteed, but you have given me something to look forward to. When I close my eyes to sleep at night, I am thankful that was able to live through another day. Each and every day is a gift from You, and I know that it is something that I cannot take for granted. Regardless of good or bad days, hot or cold, I am going to appreciate the different turns in my life–because I am able to experience it. This holiday season, I will pray for the families who lost someone close and dear to them. I will pray that you will help and guide them through their grief. Also Lord, I will pray that you will continue to remind us of our goals–Your goals for us on this earth....
Sunday Prayer: Holiday Shopping

Sunday Prayer: Holiday Shopping

Dear Lord, The Holidays are officially among us (yes, please pray for us). While we are shopping for that perfect gift for our little one, or hubby, or boyfriend or anyone, let us not forget that there are others out there who are trying to do the same thing. Usually during the holidays when we are trying to spread good cheer and good will, all that usually stops when we walk through the door to the shopping stores and find that there is only one Hello Kitty doll left: then it’s every woman / man for themselves. Even though there are some of us who can afford to have that “perfect” Christmas, let us not forget those who do not have the means to. Let us be mindful to donate toys to children who’s parents cannot afford them, food to the food banks, and clothes to families and people in need. I know it seems like it’s something that I’m asking for now, because most of my favorite radio stations are playing Christmas music, but it’s something that we should be thinking of all the time. Please help us to not forget that. Holidays are more than great gifts, its the perfect time to try and do something nice for a stranger. Please help me be an instrument of this good will....
