Just Saying

I just want to let you know a little bit more about me. I don't want to give the wrong impression of who I am with my writings. I pray I'm not coming across as being this self righteous person who thinks I'm almost perfect. This couldn't be further from the truth.

My writings are guided by what is given me, what I've learned, from readings I try to share, etc. I love sharing lessons learned, words that come to me, when the Lord floods me with things He wants me to share.

I sin despite how hard I try not to. I've committed some serious sins. One that I have a hard time letting go of. I've repented and asked for forgiveness more than once. I've finally been freed of the deep, deep, unforgiving I had towards myself. Don't worry, it's nothing that harmed another. Well, it could have if another had found out our secret, mentally.

Anyway, many of my writings are to help myself learn as well. I'm still a baby in all this, with the strong desire to become as close to our Father as much as humanly possible. I want to become like Christ as much as possible. To help others that have the same desire to do the same.

Despite my serious shyness which I'm slowly overcoming, I have a heart for people. I love people and have a desire to help wherever I can and sometimes due to that desire come across as a snob. Which means I try too hard sometimes. (blushing).

I really enjoy taking this walk together with all of you. I've met so many terrific people here. You've all taught me a lot in one way or another. It's a growing and learning process. Unfortunately I don't have a good writing ability, which is sad, as I've had a strong desire to write books, but have found that isn't in the writings for me. He's made that quite clear. ;) Darnit.

I had two books planned that have been on my heart for sometime. Who knows, perhaps someday it will happen, but not at this point. One was on how to live with a bi-polar and/or shizophrenic and survive. The other was on Learning to be Kind to One Another. I was going to take all the things in everday life I see happen and hear others complain about and write it in a fashion that may change the way of thinking with some in order to form a friendlier society. What was I thinking. Ha ha LOL!

So there you have it. I'm just another normal human being (what ever normal is ;) ) well I guess you couldn't say normal for me, just ask my family. Ha Ha. Trying to learn, survive, and make it to Heaven. Trying to be a good wife, sister, daughter, grandma, and friend. Like all of us, we are being transformed, while the Lord takes us and whittles away the mars, buffs out the rough edges, molds us to what He wants us to be, and polishes us up! Boy do I need some work. :) But that's okay. I say, "Father, I'm yours, take me, do as you need, I want You, I need You, for I can not do it alone, which You have taught me." I'm still a work in progress and will be until the end of my time here on earth. So please be patient with me and bear with me.

We all are an important part in each ones lives. I believe we've all met for a reason. Love to you all my dear sweet friends.

Oh you sweet don't come across to me as you've said. I know what you're up to with all that you share ;o).

You continually encourage me with words that my heart treasures up. The Lord knows what we are all in need of and speaks through each of us in different ways, at different times, for His purpose of loving.

I love your thoughts for books to write...let's conquer the world and show them kindness ;o). Seriously, it amazes me how people really are puffed up with pride sometimes causing stumbling blocks...they just can't see the beauty of life.

Keep sharing what you're suppose to. If something touches your heart, pass it along ;o). Don't get weary for the wear though...let yourself enjoy it.

♥ to you, dear blogger friend and sister ~ Heather

Nice to meet you. My heart and prayers go to you and your family...depression, bipolar, and schizophrenia are so hard. May God guide you and bless you as you seek to follow Him through this life.

Cindy & Heather,
Thank you soooo much for your kind sweet words. You two brought tears to my eyes. You're both Awesome!
Love to you both.

jcdisciple, thank you for stopping by and visiting. Hope to see more of you. Yes, the diseases can be difficult, and we have had our share of fun with it, but it can be workable as well if you stay on the medications and stay focused. Having a supportive family makes all the difference in the world. And of course, the Good Lord has helped us through a lot.
Blessings to you,
