Are you still flirting...

With each other that is. Do you still give each butterflies? Remember, as the years go by, you need to grow together and get closer.  Don’t get stuck in a routine! Keep things interesting and new! Spend the day flirting with the one you love as creatively as you know how! Engage and connect with each other. Show your lover, that they are still the one you want. The one you chose then and the one you can’t resist now!

My blessings

They are not all the same.  As a mother of four, I have to constantly remind myself that my kiddos are as different as two left shoes. They all have such unique talents and gifts, I had to learn to embrace and encourage them all differently. Not always easy to do, but I am learning.  I love for my kids to have excellent grades, but that doesn’t always show the full story of your child’s gift or potential. I have to constantly remind myself to look beneath the surface and realize the blessings God has given each one of my children and encourage that light in them. I am truly blessed with four gifted and talented human beings. Even though these teen years drive me crazy sometimes! 

It doesn't just happen overnight

Divorce doesn’t just happen one day out of nowhere. Divorce happens over a period of time. The relationship starts breaking down and we realize that we can no longer be together.  Many couples wake up after the break up happens, but why does it even have to get that far?  Spending endless nights worrying about what to do - to go for divorce or not? Why not to take care of the relationship today and find out what’s wrong and fix it.   Ask questions such as - Am I happy in my marriage/ is my partner happy? Am I emotionally satisfied? What about my partner? Is marriage giving us joy or pain? Are we still in love? Is one of us feeling victimized?  Are we loyal to each other? What kind of relationship do we share now? Are we feeling sick of each other?  Raise as many questions about your marriage, yourself and your partner as you can think of.   As you think of questions, you will start thinking more deeply about where your relationship is heading. Then you can truly start w

I will recover it all!

Sometimes God will wake you up in the middle of the night to get your attention , lol. He kept bringing this scripture to mind. So I got up and read it because I know me, I would forget it by morning if I didn't, lol!  1 Samuel 30:8 So David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” God's word will NEVER return unto you void. People are fair-weather, here today, gone tomorrow. Sometimes friends turn into enemies. Don't be discouraged, encourage yourself! SMILE , even when you feel defeated! When David encouraged himself in the Lord he prayed with confidence and the promise came from the Lord: “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” David would not have heard anything if he had chosen to remain discouraged. Don't give up at the edge of success. Keep pressing forward, keep striving

Don't forget date night

Between the hours that you spend getting work done, spending time with your kids, and making sure the household is running smoothly, it can be pretty challenging finding time to spend with your partner.  However, research suggests that spending quality time with your partner each week is key to having a happy and healthy relationship. In fact, one study found that couples who spend quality time together at least once a week are three times as likely to say that they are very happy with their relationship than couples that don’t set aside weekly time for each other. Here are ten ideas for ways that you can spend date night with your partner each week. Movie Night - Take some time to check out the latest movie to hit the theaters. Or, if you are short on money or can’t find a sitter, rent a movie from Redbox or Netflix, put the kids to bed, pop some popcorn, and cuddle up on the couch for a movie night at home. Picnic in the Park - Grab a picnic basket, some food, and

Uggggh not that word again...

A man loves to be loved, but respect is what he needs to survive. It is like his oxygen.  We can cut a man down just by the words we speak, which means we can also build him up with the words we speak, trust me, I know this all to well. No man can lead his wife and family, unless they are willing to follow.   A wife shows submission unto her husband when she allows him to take leadership in the relationship.  His position as leader is biblical (1 Corinthians 11:3) . When a woman submits unto her husband, she is actually submitting unto God (Ephesians 5:22-23) .  A woman therefore does not submit because her husband deserves it, she submits because she knows it is pleasing to her Lord. She can also know that nothing escapes God’s notice, and her husband will be held accountable for his actions, both good and bad.    I always had a hard time with this, I am still a work in progress, believe me, but when you are done playing and you are ready to walk in God's promises, obe

Why hire a Personal Chef?

Think only the rich and famous have the privilege of having a personal chef wait on their every craving or gourmet pleasure? Think again, it's not as expensive as you think! Why hire a personal chef? A personal chef will bring the food, create a nutritious and balanced meal, figure out the servings needed (so you don't need to deal with leftovers) and most of all give you the freedom to focus on other aspects of entertaining while still providing the best food for your guests. Personal chefs are more than just a catering service. For busy professionals who are looking for quality meals and more time with their family, a personal chef will prepare several entrees and side dishes, store them and clean the kitchen. For the rest of the week all you have to do is take them out of the fridge or freezer and reheat to enjoy gourmet meals all week. For families who turn to fast foods and restaurants the cost may actually be less than what they are currently paying.
