Well today I've been thinking about reflecting on life: When I was young a lot of stuff happened in my life, I remember going to elementary school and I had a friend and she had a disability and I remember kids would make fun of her, 1 day one of the kids pulled the chair back when she went to sit down and she fell on the floor and hit her head and she died. We would go to Franklin Street Baptist Church most of the time. My dad worked @ GE and my mom went to people's houses to clean them.
In 1979 my mom was cooking dinner and I was in the living room and when I came in the kitchen she was sitting @ the table and her tongue was stuck out so I knew something was wrong and I called 911 and she got to the hospital and she ended up dying from a Brain aneurysm. I had a brother who died with Diabetes and a sister who died from a Brain Aneurysm also. A lot of other stuff happened in my life but I won't bore you with that right now. Years later I ended up going to VA to stay with my sister and needless to say that's where I met Ernest, we met in June got married in November of the same year. Well the next year we had Ben and after about a month we decided to split up and I came back to Ky where I wasn't planning on getting back with Ernest but after about a month Ernest called and said he has been really sick and God told him that if we didn't get back together he wouldn't have anybody at all so he needed to make sure we got back together. I guess I should let you know before this we didn't go to Church much in VA but we started going after I went back and we've been going to Church ever since. Ernest and I got saved at the same time @ Franklin Street Baptist Church and we also got Baptized it was on Easter Morning and I have never felt so loved as I did @ that moment.
Since then we've had Christina and Zack and we love all 3 of our kids which are all grown up now. They all had health issues when they were born, so we didn't know what the future held, but with all 3 we turned them over to God and God has Blessed us with 3 healthy kids. My dad passed away after he had a bad car accident before Zack was born so he passed away 21 years ago. I'm here to tell you though I know for sure that God put Ernest and I together and sure it's not always roses but we have more up days then down days and I love him as much if not more today then I ever have.
As most of you know I haven't had a job since March 27th and I've been looking and I know God has the perfect spot for me and I will wait for Him to decide which job it will be. I love my Lord and I have faith that He will provide whatever we need, He has thus far so I know He will continue. I was outside yesterday while waiting to take tests for a job and I was watch some squirrels chasing each other and birds singing and all I could think was God is so awesome. When your outside sometime just take a look around at what God has made.
2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
So yes God created everything from the little ant to you and I, so please take a look @ the things that He has made and take the time and thank Him and give Him the Glory He deserves.
God I come to you thinking you for giving me the time you gave me with my mom, dad and the rest of the family who died earlier in my life. I think you for the Sister and Brothers that I still have and I think you for the rest of my family and our family isn't as close as we should be and I desire that 1 day we will be closer. God I know we only have each other for a time until that time is gone. I want to think you for all the things that you created as I watch the squirrels chase each other or hear the birds singing. Now please be with my facebook family and friends and know that I love you. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen
