Bragging and Perfection!

Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.  Ecclesiastes 7:20

I sure am not perfect and never claim to be!  Far from it actually!  I fail everyday at many things but one thing I TRY to do, and it's not always easy, is to please Him.  I also find myself trying to please others all the time that I worry, have fear and even anxiety over it!  I try my best to remember that if I please Him then in turn I will please others....I hope!  

I received my first comment on my blog that was rather upsetting to me.  I realize that is life and everyone is not going to agree with me and that is fine but this is my blog, with my very strong opinions!  BUT...they are just that my opinions.  Never do I say I am perfect, or do everything right!   

I was told that I was "bragging" about my perfection in my last post about social media and a blog I choose to no longer read.  I am not sure how someone would get that I was bragging but if you are one of them then I am sorry if it came across that way.  Certainly NOT my intention!  My family and friends will be the first to tell you that I am not perfect, and I surely don't brag about being perfect!  How could I?  

I will brag that I serve an awesome God whose mercy and grace is new everyday for the ways that I do fail!  For that, heck yes I will brag about having!  

I will brag that anyone can read my blog and not have to worry about what they are going to put into their brain and they can watch videos on my blog with their child in their lap and not have to worry about me teaching them the S-word or worse!  I will brag that my blog is a safe place where I am just ME and I write about my family, faith and friends!  

Anyone that knows me and my husband knows that we have worked hard on our marriage to get where we are!  We trusted in Him when the world told us to divorce!  Would I brag about my marriage and how I get here today?  YES.....but I would not forget to tell everyone that we both failed many times and still do but I wouldn't change it for the world!  

I will brag that I have the best friends and family ever!  

One last kiddos are amazing and I strive, not that I am, but I strive to be THEIR perfect mom!  

I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful perfect weather day that we are having in my little corner of Texas!  

God Bless!!!!

Call Me a Prude!

When did it come to the point on social media, whether it's a blog I am reading or even instagram, that I can't even have my children sitting by me because of some trash that comes out of someones mouth?  (luckily, most of the time it is Emily or Vensly sitting by me and they can't read but they can hear!)

There is a blog that I follow and I actually follow her instagram too and today I will become an UNFOLLOWER!  Not that she cares.....she has thousands of followers but I still am going to have my vent here on MY blog that will ALWAYS be safe for anyone to read or watch if I put a video!

This girl is actually amazing as far as her determination and goals she sets for herself.  She has lost over 80lbs and physically is absolutely beautiful.  She has great tips on what she eats, how she got started and even beauty and hair tips.  She has two precious little boys and at first I enjoyed reading her blog until one day Emily was sitting in my lap and I clicked on one of her instgram videos and the first word out of her mouth was the SH word!  Very loud!
Right then I should have stopped reading any of her stuff!  Today after the F-word being said on another video I did stop!  Lately, she has the f-word or others in every post she writes!  Very sad that the same things can be said without all that added in!

Here is what makes me sad......

She has THOUSANDS (like 30K) of followers that love her and hang on her every word so WHY not do something good with that!  If I had that many followers on my blog I would try to do as much good as I could with what I had to say!  I would tell as many people as I could about Jesus and what He can do in your life!

So today I am cleaning up my social media.....if it's not good it goes!  If my babies can't be on my lap while I cruise the internet then I don't need it!

I sometimes wonder why after being off facebook for 6 months I even got back on but then again after moving I need to keep up with the many people I love and will miss like crazy!

Ok vent over!  Have a blessed day!!!!

Five on Friday- Vensly..........(posted on Saturday!)

Here are FIVE things I love about my boy!!!!

1.  That ACCENT!  It cracks me up!  Still very Haitian at times.  For all of you that know Dr. B.....I call him a mini Dr. Bernard sometimes!

2.  He always tell me "I love you the best Mommy!"  

3.  He laughs so hard at the funniest things!  He can be watching a movie and something I guess we are used to seeing will make him belly laugh!  He has the most precious little laugh!

4.  He loves Pizza.....he can eat about four pieces, he loves ice cream and he loves donut holes!  

5.  He loves school, his friends and his especially his EMMIE!  He does not like to be without Emmie!

My Prayer for My Son's Spouses.....

I have been trying to pray these things often for my boy's future spouses......especially Taylor since in reality it may not be to long before he could be getting married!  (I mean like at least 5-6 years!)  I know there are probably many things I have forgotten and I will add as they come to me but here is a good start!  I also pray he will be all of these things to her too!

These are the things I pray for……..

That she LOVES God…….

That she has a big heart…..

That she is beautiful inside and out…...

That she is pure…….

that she adores my boy……

that she can compromise……

that she is content…...

that she is loyal to him…….

that she is committed to him……..

that they together have lots of laughter…..

that they pray together……

that they want the same things in life…..the important things……

that DIVORCE be a word they never use........

that she always wants to continue to grow in the Lord……

that they always grow together in the Lord…….

that she wants to be a servant to my son……(a Biblical servant)

that she always encourage him….

that she respects him……

that she loves us as much as we will love her!

that she wants to be a mother but if not that they both agree and are happy with that decision

I pray these often and I am praising God already for the wife each of my boy's will one day have!
