Real Connection

True and real friendship is never one sided.
If your the one who is always reaching out to connect, invite over, giving, remembering b-days, arranging times of fellowship, and calling and they never take the time to do that for you, then its one sided. This could be family as well. I have made it my 2016 to limit my list, including family, who never reach out to connect to us or be apart of our lives.( I am not talking about casual friendships or friends from the past) Love and bonding is not that if its not coming from both sides. Move on! People do what they really want to do. They will make it happen. I don't care if your from another culture or overseas, selfish love is not love. This year find real friendships to cultivate. A good test after you have reached out many times, is asking yourself this question? Are they reaching back? Do they take the time to call without needing something? If not let them go. It could be God is saving your circle for real connection and he will be the one to open the door.

I chose to completely go on a ministry sabbatical with my husband and step away from everything for 6 months. It has been so good for us. Rest, recouping, regaining strength for the next assignment is so crucial.  All new plans for Nollia, Tour of Life and another major event is trying to swirl around our heads. We have chosen to not focus on any of that right now. Never give up! Refuel for the dream!

Life Is Not Fair

One thing I have learned about life is,.. that its not fair. Time after time we are dealt things not by our choice. But, it is what we do in response to those things that happen, that is vital. Do we get it all right?...no. Is our response always right? No.
But humbling our attitude and asking God to help us through is the best way to correct a wrong response.

Chicken Rest

Every day we have a row of chickens that line up to lay an egg in my flower pot. I get a few eggs a day waiting for us to use. Nature is so incredibly!

Hello Rest

You may have noticed that I have slowed down the writings. My husband and I are on a 6 month ministry sabbatical. At the end of March will be 6 months. New things are in the works. That is not what we are concentrating on right now. Rest....Renew...Recharge. ....
So let the weekend begin.
