Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road “Not” Taken

For a similar reason as the poem written by Robert Frost.  Fear, the great destroyer of plans, dreams, options, etc.  Doubt is also something that leads us to make wise decisions as well giving us time to rethink everything.  Don’t ever think of fear as a bad thing.  Yes, excessive or unreasonable fear can cripple you but sometimes you need to hold back.  Sometimes fear is that sane part of you when you wish to be reckless.  It can save your life.

For some reason my roads have always been very well thought out and planned but never turn out as I expected.  The roads all seem to lead to dead ends for me but I don’t feel sorry for myself because I have had many blessings in my life.  I believe in the will of God so I don’t question anything I do with good intent.  It appears that something always works against me in my life, but maybe it is working for me.  It is said that God knows what you need even better than you do yourself.  I can safely say I have always been level-headed and actually had a life plan written out much as some create business plans before going into business.  Short-term and long-term goals.  I think many do this.  I wonder how different my life would have been if I had just “winged” it, at least once in a while, instead of being so cautious or anal retentive.  Taking that path where I feared to tread, not fallen and not gotten lost, who knows?

Weekly Photo Challenge: I am Nothing, if Not Resilient

In fact as many times as I have been down in life with financial problems,

physical ailments,

depression,

the sin of growing old in a vain culture

and various dealings with the fickle finger of fate.

There is a core of strength and protection all around me.  It is called faith.  Faith from the living Word that never fails.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Your Path to Righteousness

There is help.  We were sent a comforter, the Holy Spirit, to guide and comfort the children of God after Jesus was crucified.

john-16-8

 

Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

John 16:9-11

Daily Prompt: Bounty of Salvation

Christmas Bounty! (the quicker picker upper)

luke-2-9-11-2Most became familiar with this scripture read in the Charlie Brown Christmas special during the children’s play.  Hopefully some of you know a little more about our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ than what is portrayed in a child’s cartoon.

Merry Christmas and God Bless us everyone!

Daily Prompt: “Trust in the Lord With All Thine Heart;

And lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes; fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest to be the Best

Good Morning!

morninggloriesflare

My quest is to have the best blogs I can from this day forward. Now let’s see if I keep that promise. My goal had always been to provide needed information to others regarding many aspects of living in todays very confusing world, with a little entertainment and pretty pictures.

I want to give others ideas and shortcuts to living in a world that will rob you blind spiritually as well as financially. It was supposed to give definite tips to save money, offer suggestions to solve various lifestyle issues such as cooking, cleaning, decorating, gardening and crafting. I have really fallen short in this area because as my mother used to say “obviously, it’s too much like work” now.

Even though I have experienced the joys of motherhood myself, it was so many years ago this is definitely not a “mommy blog.”

I plan to have more recipes, gardening tips and photo enhancement tips from Photoshop, which I seldom use, Microsoft Photodraw the first photographic software I purchased and still us even though support stopped many years ago to Ulead PhotoImpact which has awsome particle effects like lighting and fog.

Thank you all for your patience and I hope you will enjoy the new, improved Po’ Girl Shines. I owe my faith and hope to Jesus. God bless you all. Peace to you all.
