One very valuable thing my Mother taught me and reinforced, was to honor yourself, speak your truth and always be good to yourself. When I was overloaded with burdens, tasks and the happenstances of life, she would remind me that ONLY I could edit, amend and manage my ‘to do’ list. She always felt that my ambitions overextended most any ones capacity, LOL I have truly learned to slow down and take it easier on myself, and life has surely thrown things at me that demanded it.

Yesterday was a very difficult day, acknowledging Mothers day and not being able to spoil her, talk with her or hug her. A day doesn’t go by where I don’t think of her, miss her and honor her many gifts of love and sacrifice.

Taking a cue from how I am feeling, I am allowing myself a day to recuperate. The Lord tells us that we are to be glad and rejoice in the day. Today I will do exactly that. Every moment is a gift. Joy comes in the morning and I cant help but try to apply that to the “mourning” as well. For me its a quest to remain thankful, happy and fulfilled.

Be back next week, God willing, with more messages of encouragement from our Lord!

Have a Blessed week!

Psalm 30:5 For his anger endures but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

Psalm 118:24 
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.


Psalm 31:7
I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.

Psalm 118:23
the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

Psalm 126:5
Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.

2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

Thirsting for God
(2 Samuel 16:1-4)
1O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2To see your power and your glory, so as I have seen you in the sanctuary.
3Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
4Thus will I bless you while I live: I will lift up my hands in your name.
5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips:
6When I remember you on my bed, and meditate on you in the night watches.
7Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.
8My soul follows hard after you: your right hand upholds me.
9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
