Flowers are comforting

I finally have some time to sit and chat a bit. Lately, I have been working on arts and crafts stuff. I discovered I like to create paper flowers and decorated vases. It is so relaxing and takes my mind to a different place. It can take me anywhere from two to four hours to make a flower from paper. I like the process of cutting and arranging these beautiful items.

An interesting fact is I don’t like live flowers. They look pretty for a while, but then they die. They draw bugs and require you to do everything you can to prolong the process of death. I was never a fan of plants or flowers. There is a tree in my front yard and looks pretty when the flowers are blooming. Then the tree turns into a horror scene with moss hanging and branches falling everywhere.

Papers flowers are pretty and last long without any maintenance required. You can be creative with the flowers you make. You can make what you want, different kinds, you arrange them any way you choose. I love colorful flowers. Flowers can bring out any room. Very eye-catching and unique. I do have to admit it is time-consuming to create and put them together. The best part of this process is when I have completed the arrangement. I love the way they turn out. I started accepting requests for flowers. I plan to advance my talent.

Below are some examples of my creations

My Father

Our God is a loving heavenly father who allows us free will to learn about him and his beloved son. John 17:3

 John 17:3.

There are numerous religions available to the world. Some mention our heavenly father God others focus on other Gods and things. Matthew 7:13-15

 Depending on where at in the world you live, you might have the option of choosing which religion you want to study.

 Through the years, I have study different Faiths. I felt inadequate always, searching for something. In the last couple of years, I found what I was missing. Matthew 5:4-6

I finally found my home.  My heart rejoices, my mind is always wanting more, my body feels at peace. When I am dealing with this world system of things, I tend to submerge myself in my faith to cope. 1 Peters 5: 6-11.

Someday!!!

Someday we’ll see our loved ones who passed away again.

Someday all sickness, pain, and sorrow will be gone.

Someday war will be no more.

Someday we will smile, laugh, and have happiness again.

Someday we will be surrounded with love, joy, and peacefulness.

Someday we will have a blessed and rich life.

Someday only Jehovah’s will for the earth will be done.

Only God’s kingdom will rule on earth. 

I look forward to someday living in paradise on earth forever.

Matthew 6:9-13

When one door close another one opens

Before COVID-19, my home care business was finally about to get off the ground. I had worked very hard the last two years trying to get all my certifications in place and started applying for state contracts to hit a wall. COVID-19 hit, and everything came down like dominos pieces. I had to dissolve the business. I wasn’t willing to put people at risk for money. It’s been ten months since this door close on me prematurely.
I am an entrepreneur at heart. My eagerness will not allow me to give up. A window opened and then the door. Now it’s time for me to do what I do best to rise. Being patient is not the easiest thing for me to do, but I am learning to wait.

Do not give up when a door closes. Another one will open up have faith and be patient.

You are my……

I depend on you

You are my rock.

You are my guiding light when my world is dark.

You are my warmth when it is cold.

You are the voice I hear when I am making decisions.

When I am lost, you are the one who finds me.

When I am scare, you are the one who comforts me.

         Isiah 41:10

You are my heavenly father who gave his only beloved precious son, to give a sinner like me a chance at life, peace, and happiness in your kingdom.

       Matthew 6:10

Faith not Sight

I rely on my faith more these days than ever before. ” Walking by faith, not by sight”(2 Corinthians 5:7). In the present time, we can’t let sight lead us if we allow that to happen it will lead us into a black hole. The things we see are temporary and won’t last forever. I have come to realize things will never be the same or normal. The way we use to live has passed. 

Now we are left with choosing between what is right or politically incorrect. 

Your choices are:

  1. Continue to live your life the way you want with traveling, partying, hanging out with people not wearing a mask, risk getting yourself or someone else sick, or dying.
  2. Change your lifestyle limit traveling, socializing in person, hanging out, or doing things that require close contact with other people to keep yourself and everyone else around you safe.

These two choices have caused many issues with society. By what we can see government, politics, righteous, and unrighteous have influenced the decision an individual makes. Nowadays, They are guiding us in so many different directions. Our government has lost their minds. They are under the impression everyone is blind to the truth. 

It is sad to say we heard these things as a child growing up. Be a leader, not a follower; I can remember this as clear as day. I even instill this same saying onto my children. 

We were given a blessing from God with free will. Each human received the necessary tools needed to make wise decisions.

When you began to walk by faith; You can see the world’s view is different from yours. You can see, smell, and hear all the garage in between the lines. You can’t let what is going on in the world consume your life. You become a slave to sight.

2 Corinthians 4:18

Hmmm..

Today the world is nosy, mean, and corrupted.

You use your sight to see all the violence and destruction. 

You use the nose to smell all the foul air circulating in the world today.

You use your heart to feel all the hurt and pain people are suffering.

You use your ears to hear all the berating and belittling of people.

You use hands to touch the blood that has been shed by man.

People think if they can’t touch, smell, taste, hear or see faith it, doesn’t exist.

Now is the time to try a different approach. 

Walk by faith and not sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Take a Knee

I take a knee, not because you want me to.

I take a knee, not because you ask me to.

I take a knee, not because of the solidarity of the protesters.

I take a knee, not in the name of racism.

I take a knee, not because of systemic racism, which has been going on for centuries.

I take a knee, not for the reasons you think.

I take a knee because I have some things to say.

I take a knee because it’s the only thing I can do.

I take a knee because it’s the right thing to do.

I take a knee because of what our God has done for me.

I take a knee because Jehovah gave his only begotten son to save our lives.

I take a knee in the name of the Son our Lord Jesus The Christ (Matthew 16:16, Luke 1:31-32).

I take a knee for this reason, no matter how much faith you put into man, he will always fail (Psalm 146:1-5).

I take two knees for the faith, hope, and love I have in God.
