8 Unseen Evidences — The Art of Self-Growth & Planting Seeds Along the Way.

Unfortunately, the most bad luck I've had is out of people I've called my friends, who mistook "confidante" for "whipping post." If you must keep them in your life, set healthy boundaries and be a good example of a healthy person! If they continue their behavior, cut them out before they drag you deeper. You deserve happiness, and no friend/mother/father/aunt/uncle/sister/etc who loves you would go out of their way to hurt you, bring you down or make you feel ashamed of your happiness.

Sadly, many Christians have not aligned their faith with their character: "TRUTH LIES IN CHARACTER. Christ did not simply speak the truth; He was truth; truth, through and through; for truth is a thing not of words, but of life and being." ~ Frederick W. Robertson

Lol! Both of my kids are so funny! Yes I already did a post for both of you. Read carefully, you two! Joey, careful traveling today, May Blessed Mother watch over you. Bridget, get back to your studying! I don't care if your classes were cancelled today. Oh and both of you, call me later! :)

Yeah, you're not a father. So stop tryin to fool people into thinking you care about me or your wife who's too stupid to leave. She's scared of you, but I'll never be. It must Suck you're going to miss out on two amazing little boys! Oh and don't call your self a "grand parent" either.

Ha! My MIL said this to me about having to like them because they're family. I also was told that I wasn't family from her husband....so, that should be give me a ticket to drop them!

Weekend Inspiration: On Children and Material Things

This could not be more true. My mother has always utilized what she calls "tough love," but really she has just always torn me down. Degrading my body, intelligence, art etc. as a method of reverse encouragement, and I can honestly say it has only put a constant negative voice in my head rather than encourage me to change or better myself in any way. I believe that if she had positively encouraged me more, I wouldn't be fighting so hard now to shine with the confidence every woman should…

The truth hurts - have fun with that.... and you are a bad mom even all the pics you posted of your kids were always dirty til I told my husband to have some pride and clean them up

Being a mom of a teenager makes me want to go back in time and punch my teenage self in the head.// Many times since becoming a mom (step-mom), I have called my mother to apologize for my bad behavior as a youth!

Rather than criticising me for shutting people out and hiding away, why not have a look at the people who have driven me to it. Blood might be thicker than water but often it's a noxious substance and one's family of origin can be a pit of vipers.

Domestic Beauty

This is one of my favorite pictures on the Internet. It may not look like much to most, but this is my dream.

This is why my mother, my sister, and myself weep when we see Israelite men being brutalized, demonized, and then dehumanized. It reminds me of Jeremiah 9:17 When YAH says the women weep and mourn for them so that the men may weep. I'm so tired of seeing our men die.

My sweet baby... You are my lebenslangersschicksalsschatz... I have feelings of my heart skipping a beat when I see you.. I love you so much babe.. Can't wait to be yours...

Truth it is. We are each a tri part being. We are a spirit which was with God before we were in our mother's womb. We live in a body which is called the Temple of God. We have a soul which is our mind..our will..and our emotions. These three parts of us yet we are ONE. So too the God I serve. My testimony.
