We Can Shine Like Stars!!!!

Good Morning........sweetest ladies!!!1

This morning I got up really early and sat on my front porch to be with the Lord. I am having to think about getting up at 5 in less than two weeks. That is early early for me. I don't mind 6 or 7, but 5?????? I have made my mind up that I will do it without complaining. I can set the mood for my family, if I don't complain. If I complain it will trickle right on down from my attitude to my sweet family. It will not be that it is not a battle with my heart's desire that wants to stay home.......but I can choose to not complain and instead pray. My Father will meet me, He will uphold me and help me to be a blessing. I will probably not do it perfectly......I may stubble some days......but I am so so grateful that the Lord will be there to help me.... if I look up. He will dust me off and send me back out to make a difference on who He is to me at the college. There are so many young people that go there that do not know Jesus. It is our families mission field right now.......He will equip do His will, not ours and the fact that He lets us do it as a family......

that is a miracle!!!!!!! 

Our boss just called........asked if I was ready and excited to come back to the! I want to cry.......but trust the Lord will help me during this time and be prepared in His might......not mine. Isn't that the CHRISTian walk when we have to do things we don't want to do? I was blessed to stay Home for 38 years. I will think on that and be thankful! 

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation in which you shine like stars in the universe. Philippians 2:14-15

Wow!!!!!!! Shine like stars? 

Today I am thankful I can do that today. It calms my heart! Saw these tags on Pinterest..........

pinned HERE.......with a reason! 

Can't wait to show you!!!!!

Hugs from my your precious HOME!



  1. Another beautiful picture and great post! I have only one comment on one of your sentences. "Isn't that the CHRISTian walk when we have to do things we don't want to do?" I feel the Lord can change our desires so that we do want to do what He is calling us to and that helps to change our attitude too so that we desire what He desires. I hope I don't sound critical. I am trying to walk the same path you are on and hope that as I work on it, my will becomes His will and my desires, His desires. Donna

  2. Linda~ I know it's hard but just like you touch our hearts here,you are making a difference in those at the college.Might not show as a big impact but like you say a good spirit/attitude will trickle down through your family, it is also trickling down through the people you come in contact being in public/work.Will keep you in prayer.Hugs!~Amy

  3. GOD BLESS you as you strive to do the LORD'S will.

  4. Hi Linda..
    Love your positive attitude. Going about your daily life with a song in your heart.
    You are a great example.

    This morning, I was up at 3:45 am; yes, it's pretty early. For me, I feel like I can get so much more out of my day, if I get up, get out of bed and get to work.
    I always say, 'I'll rest when I'm too old to work'~~~~LOL!!

    Enjoy this day that the Lord has given.

    Smiles :)

  5. Oh I can completely understand how you feel, I love my antique shop , but there are days that I just want to stay home. I will be praying for you that God will give you peace and the grace to do his will, that his desire will also be yours.
    You are such a blessing to me and so many others.
    Blessings, Karen

  6. The Lord takes us in so many directions through our lives, some we never even dreamed of. I have almost the opposite of what you've had, I've had 38 years working as a secretary, and just since 2009 (when I had both knees replaced) I've been staying home. But not for long, cause Delainey was born 11/15/10, and so my "full-time at home" turned into 3 days with her starting 2/11. Never dreamed I'd be caring for a "special needs" child with Trisomy 18. And, I'm 62, I get tired, she's a lot of care, but the blessings far, far out weigh the work. She's easy to love because she's my granddaughter. But, maybe, and I say this because your heart is as big as the Kansas Prairie, the Lord wants you to love these college students. We never stop learning and growing. Thank you, Jesus.

  7. Linda you are such a good soldier for our Lord! The students at the school will be so glad to see you! You will do wonders this year! How nice that you were able to stay home for so many years, and be such a blessing to your family.
    Blessings and hugs,

  8. My goodness I was here before. Darn blogger! Stealing me away from you! Your Christian heart shines always here! Thank you for being so uplifting always.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
