Happy News

Hello, Sugars! Apologies, Once Again. This is what I get for going and seeing a concert. I lost a day to do what needed to get done…

So, that’s why I write this.  Had to do my lesson plans for the week.  Will be back on tomorrow.

Please stay tuned.

Love,

Lisa

P.S.

I’m close to launching something new!  I’m 92% complete with my travel agent program! And!  I haven’t forgotten about posting the most recent skincare products I’ve been using, and, enjoy!  A schedule will be created to help you to know what’s coming when.  🙂 Sweet dreams.  Muaw!

OMG! We Are So Blessed! Ugh! :) – Today’s Bread

These lovely ladies are call the Iguazu Falls, which fall (ha) on the border of Brazil and Argentina.  If you had to describe this picture, what words would come to mind?  What actions do you see in this photograph?  Write them down, please.

Wow.  I can only imagine the words that poured out of your mouth because that was what came to mind.  Yes!…because, they DO describe this picture.  Did you enjoy the feeling of writing those words?  Did that activity (lol) make your heart smile?

Well, folks.  That’s love, right thair, and, it’s yummy.  And, that’s Papa, ma an!  

The point that I’m trying to make is…thank goodness for nature, for love, for beauty…because, with these, we can get through our troubles, whether it’s physical, financial and/or relational problems, because of Papa’s mightiness, we are good!

Something to keep in mind…o.k.?

Just a couple of friendly reminders (speaking to myself, as well :))

  • positively thrive on all of the free energy that is available to us…
  • karma is real
  • Papa is forgiving.  He knows we make mistakes.  We’ll appreciate the lesson we learned (when Papa shows that He was disappointed), be humble and move the _____ forward.  That’s all.
  • concentrate on only the things that we can control; otherwise, let Papa take the reigns.  We just have to pay attention to the signs.

So, I look at these falls, and, I think of this analogy:

It’s majestic.  The water is traveling down at this speedy rate, crashing, then, aw…peace. Now, instead of the water pounding down, the water is gliding along…smooth sailing… Bliss. and peace…Until next time!  Repeat.  Repeat.  Let’s now replace the word water with my life/life, and, try to make sense of the analogy…how our lives are like a waterfall.

Hope you have a good rest of the day,

Lisa

P.S.

Love you, bunches.

 

 

 

 

Psalm 93     The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength.

He Looks Beyond Our “Mishaps”. ~Today’s Bread

I get it.  As a teacher, especially, we are in the industry where labels are needed for diagnosis, treatment and proper academics.  O.k. so, they have a disability.  And, yes, the modifications are made, yada, yada, yada.

We establish relationships with these kids and, when asked how “Johnny” is doing, we talk about him as a person.  He’s recognized as a nice boy whom works hard, for example.  His documented  “label” information will not be volunteered, unless, of course, it is necessary.

‘God’s grace defies labels because it is rooted in His love, not in our self-perception.’

So, I’m sure we all “beat up overselves” for not doing this, that, or the other, and, I’m sure if God wanted to put a label on all of us, I’m sure he could think of several…a) naive b) ADD c) goofball (to name a few :P)

Anyway!  Wouldn’t a label put on you make you feel almost obligated to “fit the part”, sorta speak.  “Ok! Now, I’d better make sure that I really am a goofball by always acting like a goofball.”  (don’t want to let anyone down, do we?)

“It’s not cool.  Take off the label.  Let me be a multitude of character traits and embrace them all, equally…with hopes of people loving me for me.”

When we are ourselves, truly, we will

‘find

hope

healing

and freedom in Him’

And, this is what Papa loves!…You being yourself.  Period.  And, remember, keeping the lines of communication open and thriving.  We aim to keep him smiling.  He understands that we’re not perfect.  His love is unconditional, so, let’s be obedient!  🙂

Be a ray of sunshine for someone today,

Lisa

Additional post coming Tuesday!  🙂

Romans 5:1 – 11     But God demonstrates his own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

“Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing love in Jesus.”
