The SWEET Life!

To live in a PINK HOUSE would be living the SWEETEST LIFE!

When it comes to life, everyday should be accepted as a glorious gift! You know the feeling when you wake up happy and rested......feeling like you can accomplish just about anything! Honestly, most mornings I wake up that way! The years that we are living through in our lives are good ones. Our responsibilities as parents are not as strenuous from a physical standpoint. We enjoyed the blessing of having our children relativity young, I was only 21 when our first baby came along and 32 with the fifth and last one, so the sweet life has continued just in a different way. I loved being a mother to so many little ones...a sweet life!

As they have flown the coop, I have developed my skill of sewing and it has been a great blessing for me personally. I enjoy creating gifts for them and their children or others with my hands and using the creative side of my brain and if something doesn't work that I am creating, I can begin again.   New beginnings happen all the time in life and also in a creative project. The main purpose is to just move forward....don't allow yourself to get stuck!   Sometimes we have to sort of rip out what is not working! We can get stuck in jobs we don't like, relationships that do not work, and attitudes that rob us of God's great blessings. Take a quick inventory of your life. Are you happy? Are you a  kind and loving person? Do you treat others the way you want to be treated? Do you look for the best in your husband or your wife or your children or your friends? May I urge you to begin to look.....look up first to The Cross and then humble yourself and ask The Almighty God to restore the sweet life you once enjoyed! He will do it for is called a walk of faith, taking one day at a time, enjoying what happens as He allows your day to unfold! A simple prayer I find helpful is..."create a clean heart in me O God and renew a right spirit within me!". Let me tell you, the prayer works,  it works....EVERY TME! Ah! The sweet life....of knowing God is in control!  Such a precious thought and TRUTH....enjoy your week my sweet friend!
