Don't believe them!!!

I want to share with anyone who is going to read this a very important message. Mostly this is for girls and women, but hey it could fit just as well in a mans life too. What I'm going to say is a very simple fact -challenge, yet hardly anyone will be able to do it. Want to know what it is????
It is this.
Stop believing the lies that the world are telling you. I know it is hard in to today's world to figure out that almost everyone and thing around you wants to see you as less. It's hard when all your friends and the T.V tells you that you are not allowed to enjoy yourself.
I'm not talking about a be free, have fun, get drunk ,do drugs thing. I'm just a young lady who is tired of people going on diets and looking into the mirror and saying mean things about themselves. I'm tired of watching young people think they are less then they really are because they are not married. It's....... it's just silly. And trust me I know what I'm writing about because I do it too. We have all these people and things that expect us to be something that we are really not suppose to be. When God made us he did not want us to listen to "Glamor Girl." He had his own idea of what beauty and happiness looks like. But I don't even know if we know what his idea looks like anymore thanks to lies!!
Teens don't have sit at home and fry their brains with movies and Video games. They don't have to have the world think that the only thing they are good at is getting into trouble. I mean when the only thing your mommy and daddy expects you to do at 17 is make your bed that is sad. Horrible.
But yet we are not willing to show them that we can handle more then that.
So maybe your not lazy maybe you can handle making your bed ,and cleaning the house and make bread.
But are you the type of person who is never happy with yourself? When someone goes to take a picture do you turn away? Every morning do you look in the mirror and say how ugly you are? Does none of your clothes fit right? Do you think makeup makes you prettier? Do you think that acting a certain way will make you someone better?
I say yes to some of these. I live believing so many lies too. But why for what reason, tell me what does thinking you look fat bring you? Do you really want to be lazy everyday? Do you want to be the type of person that only will be happy when you are married? Or maybe only can really enjoy life when you have this job and this bill paid off? I'll answer for you.... NO NO NO!! No you want to learn to love what God has made you look like. You want to be helpful and busy. You want to be thankful ,and honestly happy right where you are now. I know I do.
Tonight I am doing laundry at 10 pm. I am blogging and I love it. I love that right now I can be honestly happy. Sure I want to be married and I have dreams other then these things, but that is not stopping me from being useful and happy right where I am.
Be who you really are. Maybe you need to change some things. But I'm sure when God created you he made somethings good in you... Just a thought.
So be challenged this week. Do what is good. Like what you look like. Laugh at who you are. Enjoy where you are.
For one week I challenge you to not think about being somewhere different or someone different. I challenge you to stop believing the lies!!

1st Birthday....baby boy

One year ago I received a call from my sister telling me that she was in labor. I knew that I should be expecting a call,but no words can describe just what was going on inside my mind. Fear and excitement. First of all she is my sister so it comes natural to me to worry for her health and the babies.Then there was the fact that I was one of her Midwives so it now became my job.....God blessed me that day. In so many ways he blessed so many others too.Being able to see the birth of my nephew was amazing, the whole birth was moving. He was a healthy little boy. So small and fragile. I prayed that the Lord would make him into a mighty man. A God fearing man someday. That no matter where he was that the Lord would protect him.
I have watched him grow over this last year. I watched as he started to crawl then walk. I heard him start to talk and laugh. I have come to love him with all my heart. And today I was able to celebrate his First Birthday with him. It was amazing. I love that little baby and he will always have a special place in my heart.
~ Happy Birthday Baby boy!!!

A well rounded me..

I know that it's past the 1st of the year, so to many it is to late to make changes ,or goals for the year 2012. But I stand from a view that at any point you can make changes. And at any point you can ask GOD to give you wisdom in what needs to be changed. I did just that this week. I asked God not only what he wants me to be doing today, but what areas I need to work on. I'm almost 19 years old, I'm done with school, I'm single, and I do not have a job that demands me to be gone for hours and hours. Sooo..... now would be the perfect time to enhance some skills, learn some more, practice things that I haven't been able to do in a while. Just because I could have lots and lots of free time doesn't mean that I should be able to spend it in a useless way. I want to make changes in my life. Changes that will affect me for the rest of my life. After I got done praying, asking God to tell me what I need to be doing. I thought about some things. People almost always make new year goals that never get reached ,and the ones that people do accomplish are goals that only will bring short time changes. I don't want to do that. If I'm going to change in an area in my life ,and if it is going to be hard work for me to do. I want it to be on something that will still matter when 2013 or 2014 comes.Something more then losing a few pounds or visiting the ocean. I want it to change me forever, making me a well rounded person.
So I made a list. Some of the stuff on there are skills that I want to learn while others are some things I know already know, but that I want to make more time for. For example,
  • I want to learn wood work.
  • I want to practice my piano more than once a week.
  • I want to play with my little siblings. I want to make time for them.
The list is much longer. I just wanted to give an example.My goals for this year are things I think will make me into a better person. A more skilled lady. I want to be ready for whenever God tells me to do a job.I want to know more then the average teen knows. I want to make myself into a WELL ROUNDED ME!!
