Make Memories, Not Deadlines...

These last few days my little family took time away from the hustle and bustle of life's busy day to day life and we made memories! 

We drove almost six hours away in hopes of experiencing the Solar Eclipse. 

What's funny is that although we tried to escape the life of deadlines, the reality is, even if you try you can't. 

Today alone we had many deadlines to meet in order to not miss the whole purpose behind our trip. 

In order to not miss out on the fresh made omelettes at the hotel we had to be in the hotel cafe by a certain time. We actually missed the cutoff time, but my husband must have looked hungry and disappointed, because they made him one despite the kitchen being closed. #Grace

We had to stop along the way so my hubby could pick up cool parts for his old truck. How ironic that the place was less than 5 miles from our hotel, and on the way. #Favor

We had to be at our destination by a certain time to get the best parking. This meant we had to leave at a certain time to try and avoid the traffic. We found an alternate route to avoid the backed up traffic jam. #Blessed 

The point is, no matter how hard you try, life is full of deadlines, obstacles, and diversions that you have to learn to navigate through if you plan on getting to your final destination. #Purpose

The key is, even when you have deadlines, you can still make amazing memories. You have to change your mindset. You have to learn to see things through a different set of lenses in order to find all of the #Grace, #Favor, #Blessings and #Purpose of your journey. 

We laughed! We got frustrated with the traffic. We got stalled along the way - but we never lost sight of our final destination! We made it work! We kept going! 

At the end, we looked back and realized that because of God's amazing grace, favor, blessings and purpose, we got to experience something magnificent He created today. 

I hope you all will take a moment to reflect on your life. Are you setting aside time to make memories? Do you have your eyes on a final destination? If not, find your purpose (destination), devise a plan, and stick with it! But, take time along the way to enjoy the blessings God is affording you! 

I often have too pinch myself and thank God for all the many blessings He's bestowed upon me and my little family. Every day presents it's own set of challenges, but we work through them and we stick together. That's what families do. 

"Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given."‭‭ (John‬ ‭1:16‬)




Have a wonderfully blessed evening!

The Son...

Borrowed, and so so good!

There is so much excitement and anticipation around the eclipse coming up on Today, Monday August 21 st. I mean, what's not to love! The moon blocking out the sun and darkness in the middle of the afternoon! It's a phenomena that the whole country is anticipating (and hoping to have the right glasses to view).

But could I tell you about another day that the sun was darkened and refused to shine? It was the darkest day in history 2000 years ago when the Son of Man was hanging on a cross. The scripture gives this account in Mark 15:33-34: "At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" (which means "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

The sun was darkened for three hours as the Father turned away from the Son. For the first time in all of eternity there was a separation of the Father and the Son. Our finite minds can't comprehend such love for us that God would sacrifice His Son. And why would the Son willingly give His life for the sins of the whole world? It's beyond our human comprehension.

Darkness in the middle of the day. Creation mourning the killing and death of the Lord of Creation. But praise God it didn't end there...not in darkness! The darkest day in history was turned into a glorious daylight as the Son arose on the third day! Salvation was complete.

The eclipse today will be an amazing event. Amazing, but not life changing. I pray that it is a reminder of that day so long ago when love eclipsed darkness and salvation became a reality for each and every person on the planet. That is life changing, but only if you receive it.

I hope you are careful on Monday as you look at the sun, but I pray that you are always careful to look AT The Son!

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim. In the light of His glory and grace."

The Power Of Your Words...

When I hear people say, "I can't," it's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. 

Growing up, my Dad always said, "Can't never could do anything." So, the words "I can't" just are not in my vocabulary. If you use those words I encourage you to stop immediately! 

WORDS ARE SO POWERFUL!! 
Words are so powerful, and when you speak them out loud, you're speaking those words into action. 

Let me ask you something. If you knew that the words you speak have actionable consequences, why would you choose to speak negativity into a precious life that is a gift? 

I love what Ayn Rand said, "The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me." 

More so, I love (and believe) that My God meets all my needs. (Philippians 4:19) I want you to pay close attention to these words. I did not say some of my needs -- I said ALL of my needs. 

Whatever you need, whatever you dream, you must believe that you can accomplish it when your strength comes from the Lord. 

Trust me when I tell you, God does not make mistakes! You were created for a specific and special purpose. It's imperative that you start believing that. 

When you let go of your fears and begin to truly believe in yourself, I PROMISE you will see great and mighty positive changes! 

Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy! 

Do something kind today. Be nice to others and respect those you interact with. Strive to make a difference in others lives, but more importantly make a difference in your own life. 

Life is messy...thank God for Bounty paper towels, Grace & Mercy!

"Pretty words aren't always true...and true words aren't always pretty, but when the truth is spoken, it's always beautiful!"

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32)

Make memories and make today count for today will never come again. GO! Be the awesome person God designed you to be and have a blessed day! 

Blessings,
Candye~

Take in the sights around you and appreciate all of the beauty - even if it's not the kind of beauty you'd hope for - open your eyes and find it! If you're not happy with where you are, take the appropriate and necessary steps to change your view! 

Today's Humor: Why is it that your nose runs but your feet smell? πŸ˜‚

Today's a gift! GO! Be the amazing person God designed you to be! NEVER let anyone or anything dull your light!! Today, Shine On!! Have a blessed day!!

Recalling God's Goodness...



We can recall the times of God's faithfulness to us when we think back and count our blessings such as remission from cancer, a job transition, or the birth of a child.  

However, we can go a step further and proactively remind ourselves of His goodness.  

Have you ever built an altar to remind you of who God is and what He has done for you?  Could you imagine walking through your home seeing a stone written with words commemorating each time God proved faithful?  It is a proactive, physical way to jog your memory of God's faithfulness.  

When difficult times come, all you need to do is look around to see God's blessings you've long forgotten! 

Have a blessed Saturday and never forget to be thankful, it's really a small act with a huge reward! 

Let Go! And Let God! be God and take control! 

He doesn't alway ask our permission but He does promise He will take care of us if we trust Him. 

"Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you." (Exodus 20:24)

Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). 

Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy!

Run Your Race Intentionally



One of my favorite quotes comes from the late Ruth Bell Graham. Years before her passing she said that when she died, she wanted these words written on her tombstone. "End of construction. Thank you for your patience." So simple, yet so true! 

You are a work in progress. I am a work on progress. We even see that Paul in the book of Philippians admits he too was a work in progress. Realize that NO ONE here on earth has "arrived" yet. We are all under-construction. Just because you have areas in your life that God continues to renovate doesn't mean you're not growing and changing more and more into Christ's image. 

Please don't get discouraged; we are all a work in progress until the day we make it to heaven. If you didn't know it yet, God is in the construction business and you are part of His project. Forget the past. Focus on the future. Do you hear that? Christ is calling after you.


Remember, as I've written before, if you take nothing else away from my blog - I pray you will never forget that you are "wonderfully and fearfully made" (Psalm 139:14). Never forget that you are the son or daughter of the almighty King of Kings and that you do not have to "BE" what the world expects you to be, but you do have to be what makes you happy!
