NUMBER ONE SON



Thirty four years ago my life change and so did my plans for my life. When I was twenty one I made a decision to join the National Guards but God had other plans for me to be a mother. I went all the way to Fort Jackson , South Carolina to be told I was pregnant.  I told them to test again because I could not believe , that I would not know I was pregnant it took three test for me to believe it. Well it was easy to join ,but hard to get release . So eating the food there made me begin to show. a mouth later I was back in Michigan . I had a boy on May the twenty third ,natural child birth because he came quickly there was no time . As time went by he realized  he would be an only child .Always saying he wanted a sibling. People called a him a mama's boy,spoiled .but he was taught to respect people and to not depend on no one and he had to work hard to get a head in life. And a house full of kids is not always a good thing. He has been working every since he was fifteen.So he has a good work ethics. Working at he same company for thirty years , these days that is a blessing .I love him to death and he knows it but some times
it's alway good to say it.Here is to thirty four more years. Happy birthday to my Number One Son.Your mother loves you.

IF OUR HEARTS


As I stood deep in the bush of rural Uganda watching a rig I’d contracted to drill a well for 700 impoverished villagers, an elderly man approached me. He grasped my hands and in broken English said, “If you could open my heart and view inside, you would see happiness on top of happiness on top of happiness for this water God has provided.”
Though I couldn’t see within the man, his words gave me insight into the overflow of his heart: gratitude, humility, meekness, and reverence for the Lord were evident. “What you say flows from what is in your heart,” Jesus said. “A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart” (Luke 6:45).
He also said in Matthew 15:18, “The words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you.” God’s Word instructs us to guard our “heart above all else, for it determines the course of [our] life” (Proverbs 4:23).
If our hearts are full of bitterness or hatred, we’re prone to speak ill of others. This ultimately results in broken relationships and isolation. If our hearts are full of love and compassion, we’re prone to speak lovingly to others and encourage them rather than condemn them. This can result in healthy, edifying relationships.
If our hearts are weighed down by fear, we won’t have the confidence to move forward as God leads. That’s why Scripture tells us, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
