Morning Motivation

My mom was an incredibly generous person.  I can remember her giving her time and money to various groups.  I remember going door to door with Mom collecting money for the American Heart Association; we spent hours working with the Special Olympics.  She had a special place in her heart for a group called Boys Town.  I have one of her bookmarks from this group and I would like to share the quote with you.

“Dear Lord, I have been very hard on myself.
I make demands on myself which are too harsh.
I judge myself too severely.
I have put myself down too often.
That is how I grew up.  That is how I was taught.
Dear Lord, I am now putting myself in Your presence.
I am one with You God as well as with others.
I am not going to beat up on myself or others anymore.
I am now experiencing being cared for and guided by You God.
Dear Lord, please heal my soul, mind, and body and those of all people.
I rest in Your peace and healing today and forever.

Every time I read this prayer, it is a fresh reminder that

God cares for us and is with us always.

Have a great week and God Bless

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
