Hello There Earth! | Single Mom Survival SUCCESS – Single Mum, Parents Article

We just celebrated Earth Day. It’s a pretty amazing place, isn’t it!  For me personally, it has given me years of pleasure by enjoying the time outside, doing some travel, and just watching the garden grown. God created it, And God saw that it was good. (Gen 1:9) I am thankful to God for such a beautiful ‘piece of property’ He has given us to enjoy.

Remember | Single Mom Survival SUCCESS – Single Mum, Parents Article

Our brain is a mighty machine.  Some days we think it has gone on a vacation, but the inner workings and power it has is insurmountable.  Inventions, creations, books, justice, and love is because of this fist size God-given brain.  Other times it is used for negative actions, and our thoughts can certainly give us ‘stinkin’ thinkin’.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You…
