Faithful

Happy Father’s Day!

Last night someone reminded me that there was a time when I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.  I couldn’t even imagine. I told them that was before I allowed God to” take over” my life and He turned it upside down.  When I “allowed” God to take over, He showed me my purpose which is to lead others to him through ways He created just for me.

God has given me a wonderful teaching career, serving at my church (Revolution Church) and two published children’s books (paperback and eBook) which serves many countries. They are on Amazon.

When you give your heart to Jesus, He will use you (in an awesome way) to lead others to Him through ways only He created just for you.

Don’t lead others to the enemy because you decide not to give your life to Jesus.  Be the example like my Dad did with his life. He went to be with Jesus June 15, 2019 at 9:50pm.  He introduced our family to Jesus, took us to church, taught us to sing for God’s glory and made sure we knew that God is our provider, comforter, healer and savior.  He gives us unconditional love, mercy and grace. He welcomes us back home, no matter where we’ve been or how long. He taught us that people are important. And no matter what, family is always family.

I am thankful for my Dad, even if I wasn’t always the best daughter.  He gave me the best gift that I have ever received: Jesus! I will forever be grateful for his gift and will re-gift it many times to everyone who will receive it.  

 Be faithful to the God who is faithful to you!

Happy Father’s Day Single Parents

It is inevitable that I write this single parent post on Father’s Day.  I had so many friends and family remind me of my role as a single parent mother/father in my children’s lives.  Not to take away from the father’s who are in their children’s life, but to stand up for the mom’s who are the ONLY caretaker in their children’s lives.

I celebrate Mother’s Day with a passion, I deserve that as a mom.  But I, as a single parent, earned the responsibility to also celebrate Father’s Day.  Where there is no other parental support, such as physical or financial, I appreciate the thought and support that family and friends give me as a single parent.

I applaud all single parents.  It is a hard road to travel. But when you decide your children are the most important thing in your life, you will stop at nothing to protect, insure, provide, love and care for them.  With or without support from others, you can make it. In fact, you can’t see it any other way. You will make it happen.

I know that even though I had no physical or financial support from their dads, I made it work.  I fought for them, worked several jobs at a time, went back to school, sacrificed things and never gave in or up.  I had family and friends who helped me tremendously and a Heavenly Father who looked after us all the time, protected us and provided for us when things looked impossible.

I would have never made it without my Heavenly Father.  He has never left me or my children. He watches over us, protects us and provides for us even now that they are young adults.  He loves us and wants the best for us. He has never stopped giving us what we needed.

I/We have a Dad/Papa that is celebrated on Father’s Day.  He is loved and adored by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  I appreciated him for loving us and making me into a strong independent mom. His work ethic and teaching us to take care of ourselves has helped me grow into the person that allowed me to stand strong during my single parenthood.

Thank you single parents for standing strong during the time when your children need it the most.  Thank you for working hard and teaching your little ones that they matter and are loved. Thank you to my Heavenly Father who loves me unconditionally and continues to take care of me and my family.  Happy Father’s Day to all the Single Parents everywhere!
