POTS AND PANS

1370998541_lSpeaking from the Heart

I grew up in a household with five brothers and three sisters. Meals had to be planned sometimes the day before which, to be honest, I hated. My idea of fun was to go outside and spend time with my brothers and watch while my father fix cars which were having mechanical problems. Unfortunately, my mother’s intention for my upbringing was to learn how to cook, clean, wash dishes and pots and pans. As I look back on that part of my life, I wondered why it bothered me so much as my mom taught me how to keep a home and take care of my family which is invaluable.

QUIET MOMENTS

alone time

I love spending time alone and having quiet moments all to myself very early in the morning. My days are usually filled with so many other distractions vying for my attention and sometimes it’s very difficult to be alone, to think clearly of new possibilities. Everyday we live in a world that is constantly pulling us in different directions. It is important to make each day count, finding time for solitude and silence to refresh and renew ones spirit.

Jesus sought solitude many times in prayer during his ministry due to the demands of his life. His Foundation was his heavenly father which renewed his strength to continue on his journey. This is a lesson we all can learn from, as the pressures of our daily life seems to increase rather than decrease. Time spent alone with God in prayer will give you strength and open doors to a new reality.

Our Footsteps

nQZcA7PRTyuduZPSZQ88_wanderlust

Guide our footsteps,

O Lord

Help us to walk in your truth

Hearing but also understanding

Walking in obedience

To your word

As we slip,

Help us not falter

On the rocky terrain of life

Teach us to walk on a straight and narrow path

Walking in the boundaries

You have set for our lives

Thinking out of the box

Yet making the right choices

Help us to follow our heart, in accordance

To your will

Forgiving and forgetting what lies behind

And moving forward to what lies ahead

We turn to you, the creator of the Universe

To guide our footsteps

O Lord
