14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
When I was made in the secret place,
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
All the days ordained for me were written in your book
Before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
They would outnumber the grains of sand—
When I awake, I am still with you.
In the passage of scripture above we are reminded that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. God has created and formed us just as he desired for us to be. So with that being true why are so many women these days trying to be, or look like someone they aren’t. The great God of this universe has given us His stamp of approval.
Happy New Year !

Philippians 3:13 (NLV)
13 No, Christian brothers, I do not have that life yet. But I do one thing. I forget everything that is behind me and look forward to that which is ahead of me.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope.
Lamentations 3:22-24 (NLT)
22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends![a] His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NLV)
18 “Do not remember the things that have happened before. Do not think about the things of the past. 19 See, I will do a new thing. It will begin happening now. Will you not know about it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
When I was a child I heard my dad say several times, ” the older you get the faster time goes”. During those early years it seemed as though it would take Christmas forever to come. Boy have things changed! It almost seems like we are having Christmas every six months.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
Omar N. Bradley
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The hand that rocks the cradle / Is the hand that rules the world.” ~~W. R. Wallace
What is a Mother?
A Mother has so many things to do,
From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.
She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
She bathes the children and washes their clothes.
When they forget to wash their faces clean,
And their clothes are the muddiest you’ve ever seen,
Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
Of course, that is what a Mother will do.
How far you go in life depends on
your being tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving and
tolerant of the weak and strong.
Because someday in your life
you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae.
True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
I am confident that nobody… will accuse me of selfishness if I ask to spend time, while I am still in good health, with my family, my friends and also with myself.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
Roy L. Smith
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind, to cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
C. S. Lewis
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
John F. Kennedy
A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.
Time = Life,
Therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.
I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.
