Do Over!!

Monday, January 21, 2019

Welcome to my Monday Blog, dear Friends! Thanks for visiting and know that I appreciate each one of you. Please feel free to drop me a line now and then and share some of you with me!

I was just thinking about the fact that we all make mistakes – All of us! We’re human…that’s the reason. No one holds the patent on mistakes. No matter how hard we work, how careful, thoughtful or responsible we are, sometimes we just need a “do over”, right?

I’m pretty sure that today alone, I’ve made at least…let’s see now…OK, at least eleven mistakes…and that was before noon. What have I done about them, you ask?

Well, a few of them were totally harmless and fixable…some were an immediate do-over and some are still in the process of being remedied; however, none of them were earth shattering. I have had days though, where a thoughtless, but honest mistake took more time than I was ready to commit in that moment, to fix, and I put it off. By the time I was ready to “fix it” it was a bit more “costly” than I was prepared for and nothing to do with money. This was one of those human errors that I failed to react to in a way that my actions (or lack of) would not be misinterpreted.

In my busyness, I was only thinking of myself and had not considered the fact that my actions or lack of, at that specific time, could have caused pain to another. When I was made aware of this, my first thought was DO OVER!! I picked up the phone, sincerely humbled myself and ask for forgiveness for my thoughtless behavior. That’s all it took. Of course, I hadn’t even realized my behavior was thoughtless; however, it was perceived as thoughtless. I couldn’t take that because it hurt my heart to think that I had hurt someone’s feeling over “nothing.”

Intentional or unintentional, when we’re the cause of someone’s pain, we must take a do-over and make it right…apologize, ask for forgiveness and move on. That’s the right think to do.

“Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many times as seven times?”

Jesus said to him. “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.             -Matthew 18-21-22

This week, my prayer for us all is that we’ll ask our Savior to cause the Him inside us, to be thoughtful in all our actions so that they will not be in any way hurtful or thoughtless to others…and to help us to share a Christ-like personality in all we do. Amen!

GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!

I love you,

Margaret

How’s Your Heart?

tmb blog a beautiful heart

Monday, January 14, 2019

Hello, my Friends! Welcome to my Monday Blog and THANK YOU for sharing your time with me today. I love it and my heart is filled with Joy!

Ya know, we all need a little comfort now and then – a kind reminder that we’re not alone in this world…a feeling that there’s someone in our corner, ready with a hug, a compliment, a sweet little kiss…no matter what.

It may seem small to some of us, but there are some who would benefit greatly to hear that they’re being thought of, cheered on, and loved for exactly who they are – a precious soul who may be hurting, but just can’t express themselves for fear of rejection or even embarrassment. Trust me, I know things and this is one of them: We never know how the shoe could easily be on the other foot and we all have the need to be loved for exactly who we are in any given moment – Someone who is beautiful and wonderfully made, because God doesn’t make mistakes — That’s our failing, not His.

A beautiful heart can change the world – Literally – Even if it’s just one person’s world at a time. 

When we willingly open our hearts to bring joy to another’s, we’re sharing our blessings in a way that can bring great joy – to both of us! We never know what’s truly going on in another’s life but we don’t have to know, if we live our lives with a heart of love and kindness for all…in any given situation.

It’s a fact none of us will escape pain and sorrow before we leave this world; however, it’s up to each one of us as to how we choose to live our lives regardless of good times or not so good, while we’re here. We have the incredible Gift of Life inside us and only our own mirror to look into each night before we go to bed. Before we hit the sack each night, maybe we should ask ourselves, “Did I share my beautiful heart with someone today?”

My prayer for us all this week is that we will cherish and honor our goodness by sharing ourselves with someone in need – anytime, anywhere we have the opportunity. Amen!

GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!

I love you,

Margaret

Be A Warrior!

Wow! Did I just write 2019 …again!? It’s always like this…takes me about a month to get used to the New Year!

So, Happy New Year my dear friends and welcome to my first Blog of this new year! Actually, some days I don’t know if I’m going or coming no matter what year it is. One thing’s for sure, though…I do know who loves me, baby, and that my friends is what keeps me going – in the right direction!

When we’re clear about the how we want to live our lives, the gift of Life is so much easier regardless of the mountains we must climb. That head-in-the-sand routine just never works out very well. I’ve been at the top of the mountain and at the bottom as well…the view from the top is so much better! I choose to consider myself a Warrior. ‘Course, Warriors have bad days too, but if you’re a Warrior for Jesus, you may lose a battle now and then, but you’ll never lose the war!! You’ll never be alone, you’ll always be loved and you’ll have your true best friend right by your side 24/7…imagine that! Maybe this new year, 2019, is your year to reach the top of your mountain. Be a Warrior for Jesus Christ. He died for You! He’s the real deal and He’ll never, ever, never leave you!!

Be a Warrior and live for Him. Amen!

GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!

Happy New Year and I love you,

Margaret
