I've always wanted to paint.
I remember signing up for a painting class a few years ago. It started out well like many of these hobbies/interests tend to do until we got to the difficult middle and I balked.
I just couldn't do it.
The things I drew looked nothing like the original. I was sad and disappointed in myself so I gave up.
The story reminded me that we are all painting our life story. Each morning is a blank canvas, waiting for the lines we will weave through and the colors we will fill in. But most especially, it requires that we remain consistent and willing to see it through. How many times have you given up at the difficult middle? How many times have you decided that life is too hard and your dreams and goals wouldn't work anyway? .
Perhaps, this is some food for thought. I pray we remain steadfast, anchored to the master creator. #mylifeinwatercolor#lifeofacreative

God has given women a particular role in the family, the Church, and society. This teaching of Christ is mostly ignored by modern society. "The husband is the chief of the family and the head of the wife. The woman, because she is flesh of his flesh, and bone of his bone, must be subject to her husband and obey him; not, indeed, as a servant, but as a companion, so that her obedience shall be wanting in neither honor nor dignity. Since the husband represents Christ, and since the wife represents the Church, let there always be, both in him who commands and in her who obeys, a heaven-born love guiding both in their respective duties." [Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical on Christian Marriage, Arcanum Divinae, n. 11] "Grace never casts nature aside or cancels it out, but rather perfects it and ennobles it. Therefore the fullness of grace that was granted to the Virgin of Nazareth, with a view to the fact that she would become Theotokos (Mother of God), also signifies the fullness of the perfection of what is characteristic of woman, of what is feminine." [Pope John Paul II, On the Dignity and Vocation of Women, Mulieris Dignitatem, n. 5]
God's Sacred Infallible Scripture teaches the truth regardless of the failings of culture and society. Women, we must rise up in our roles and fulfill them with love and joy so that we may be pleasing to God by being the heart of our homes. ❤🙌🙏 #wives#mothers#Homemakers#Teach#children#valuable#value#women#woman#WomensRole#thehome#HusbandsHelper#Dignity#teachyoungirls#Girls#youngladies#homeduties#truefeminism#feminine#femininity#Catholic#catholicliving#ChristianWomen#truth#Bible#scriptures#saintlife#wife#mother#traditional
My New Book ‘Back To Life’ is OUT NOW!
Have you got yours?
This book is about you recognising the power that God’s word has, to revolutionise your life from the inside out.
I know how broken I’ve been, with doubts that I would even be able to be whole again. But God. There’s life in the scriptures. Jesus said “The words I give you are Spirit and Life!” _____
In this book I share truths taken from scripture that have healed me, and taken me through some dark seasons.
It has prayers, declarations and exercises.
I explore topics such as: Identity, The Mind, Love, The Holy Spirit and more.
My prayer for anyone who reads this devotional is that you are; revived, awakened and inspired to pursue God like never before, so that you can become the person that God always intended you to be, His and whole!
For with God nothing will be impossible.”
Luke 1:37 (NKJV)
At various times in our lives,
We all have dreams and desires that look seemingly impossible but the word of God assures us more than once in the Bible (Matthew 19:26 as well) that
ALL Things are Possible WITH GOD,
and NOTHING is Impossible with GOD•
Which Dream or Desire will You (and I)
Confess that God will make happen and so therefore Believe in our hearts as we speak it🗣
I have one One or more to Pray, Confess and Believe God for,
Will You Do the same for yours?
▶WHY IT'S WEIRD: The Christian dating experience is terribly awkward. Yet somehow (surprisingly), Christians have figured out a way to make it even worse. We have taken the beautiful doctrine of adoption and made dating basically unbearable by pushing Christian brother-sister language. “You what? She’s your sister, man.” Thanks. Things weren’t weird enough.
Let’s call this advice “the sibling rule,” taken from Paul’s advice in 1 Timothy 5:2 to treat “younger women as sisters, in all purity.” “Treat her like your blood sister” is a saying that is often used to encourage strong physical boundaries between dating singles in the church. And, while it is trendy and slings a verse that seems straightforward in a sound-bite-theology world, something doesn’t sit right about the rule.
Isn’t it strange to regulate the Christian dating process by making it quasi-incestuous? The sibling rule is an attempt to make the idea of premarital sexuality seem gross. And yet, God isn’t disappointed in you for having feelings for a girl that aren’t appropriate in a blood sibling relationship. In fact, God delights in you having feelings for a girl that is your “sister in Christ” that wouldn’t be appropriate for your sister. And he is not disappointed in you for acting on them. To say anything otherwise is a misuse of the beautiful reality that we are co-heirs of God with Christ and the whole church (Rom. 8:17), which provides the context for romance to eventually blossom into that which truly pictures our relationship with Christ (Greek of 1 Cor. 9:5; 1 Tim. 1:5). Christian dating is not spiritual incest, for several reasons.◀ ▶WHY IT'S WRONG: First, the sibling rule can’t accommodate sexuality. The biblical understanding of the sister-brother relationship isn’t meant to destroy sexuality. And yet, it is often used to discourage any form of premarital sexual expression. A relationship that contains sexual expression—i.e., the husband-wife relationship—does not dissolve the Christian sister-brother relationship (Mark 3:35; 1 Cor. 12:27; Eph. 5:1, 8, 22-23). In fact, without being brother and sister in Christ, spouses cannot have a healthy (CONT.👇)
“The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible - and achieve it, generation after generation” - Pearl S Buck
What does attempting the impossible look like for you? Maybe climbing Mount Everest, starting a new business, begin a degree at 50 years old, surfing a 40ft wave, moving to a place no one recognises you (now that one just takes guts), planting a organisation from nothing, sky diving when you’re afraid of heights? Anyway, you get it. Point is, attempting the impossible is a hell of a thing. It’s really something that sticks the purity of connection and adventure together
So today my challenge to you, and to myself, is to chose that daring thing that’s been tucked away in your heart and begin discovering ways to achieve it. Just chose, plan and act because you never know, you might leave a trail behind for the next generation to follow.
