Blessed Monday to all of you! I pray that you had an amazing weekend. Last week I did not post any devotions for me and my family went on a family vacation. It’ amazing how the things you enjoy doing you do not find time doing them until you go on vacation. I played hopscotch game. I was shocked that I even remembered how to play the game. (I have not played that game since I was ten years old). This vacation was so well needed in so many ways.

Psalm 133:1 A song of ascents. Of David. How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! 

Unity, we live in a world where so much of that is so needed. The world is screaming for it. It searches for it. When we show unity, the world stands and take notice they see that God is with us. God’s Divine Will does not stop because of chaos. God calls the church to be a vibrant and powerful bearing much fruit working together.

How should we live in unity with one another? We live in unity by learning to respect one another. Respect is not always agreeing with someone. Respect that person or persons for who they are and not who you want them to be. You can not respect a person if you do not respect them to be different in their thinking, belief, and values and so forth.

There are homes that are chaos, we have relationships that does not have unity. Homes and families are torn apart because unity has been cast aside. Lord I pray and ask you to bring peace during chaos, come and bring back the unity that we have thrown out. Teach us the importance of unity. Forgive us for ignoring your words. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. AMEN

    I remember playing hopscotch when I was a kid. Glad you still was able to have that little girl fun again.

    Thank you Donna. My husband actually took of video of me.

  3. I love that hands picture. Where did you find it? It reminds me of the time when my older daughters were still at home. One was a brunette and the other a blonde. They always thought that the other of them was prettier. I told them that they were both beautiful and that without the other you couldn’t see the beauty in their selves. I said that the blonde was even more beautiful when the brunette was beside her and that the brunette was even more beautiful when the blonde was beside her. We have beauty in our differences.
    Oh, for the day that people would just look into one another’s eyes and just see as the Lord sees…..their heart. Oh, that the church would open her eyes to one another and come together as one. We are better together and to love is to defeat the enemy of our souls.
    God bless you sister. Thank you for a beautiful post. ❤ Hugs.

    I love what you said. Sisters are like that, me and my sister said things like that too. For none of my sisters have the same skin color complexion. We are one shade lighter and darker than the other. One day my mother overheard us comparing ourselves to each other and she said, “stop comparing yourself girls, all of my girls are beautiful, for beauty is not in the color of your skin it is what is inside of you.” From that day on we never did that again.

    As far as the picture I get a lot of my pictures from Google. I just type in a word that go along with my topic and search for images and what ever speaks to me that is the one I choose. Thank you for sharing your story.

  5. Oh I wish I would have known to say what your mother said. What a wonderful way to look at it. My mother was at the bar all the time and when she wasn’t, I was her punching bag. Then I had several foster parents who were just in it for the money, no real sense of encouragement, so I had no foundation. I read a lot of books when I got older to see how to parent. I knew all I had to do when the girls were younger was to do everything the opposite of how my mom did things.
    At any rate, I am sure you know how blessed you are. Not all of us have that foundation of a loving mother. ❤

    Sis, I am so sorry to hear that you did not have that type of Mother. Thank you for sharing that because you did not have too.

    Yes, I am very blessed to have my mother. She is no longer with me now, she’s gone home to be with the Lord.

    Your kids are blessed to have you as their mom. Blessings to you sis.

  7. Thanks for the blessings. For some reason I needed them tonight. It has been a hard day. Just that bit of compassion that you have shown has brought some tears. Life isn’t always easy and sometimes we just need to vent. Thanks for listening. I have written about my past in the hopes that it would help just one and point them to our Lord. He has been so good to me. If you get a chance perhaps you would read parts of my story. Sending love to you sis. That’s what there’s just too little of in this world.
    And then there’s this one also.
    May the Lord be glorified always. May many be brought to Him before it is too late is my prayer.

    You know sis that is something we all need is to be able to vent to someone. I am just thankful that you felt comfortable to vent with me. I find venting to be therapeutic. As Christians we must be there for one another, the good times and the bad. We are to share in one another sufferings and joyous times. For that is what Christ preaches.
    Be blessed my sister, for we are in this together!

  9. ❤ Thank you! I appreciate your genuine kindness. I pray the Lord richly blesses you for your faithfulness. Have a great day! 🙂

  10. Welcome back! Respect will go a long way in healing the chaos of the day! Great point! Wonderful Jesus!
