Lost People…

lost people

 

Lost People.

There seems to be a lot of people out there in the world that just seem lost.

No direction, no destination just spinning in circles with no place to go.

Part of this is because our busy life has us feeling out of control.

Part of this is that people are plugged in to their devises and lack real interaction with people.

Part of this is because we are in general a pretty lost people.

How do we get out of being lost? Here are some possible answers.

  • Have a direction. At least get going.

  • You can always adjust and change direction.

  • Have a plan for getting there. How, when, why are good places to start.

  • Count the cost. Pie in the sky plans are great fun, but understand what it will cost. What is the cost of time, money and energy.

  • Look at the big picture.

  • Study, learn and get the facts.

It is Okay to be lost if you can be found.

But far too many people are just lost without a place to go.

Don’t be a lost person.

Parenting Priorities

priorities

The Number One Priority for a Successful Parenting

The number one thing that parents can do for their children is to love one another and show it.

Children must see their parents love for one another in action.

A husband and wife should be hugging, kissing and holding hands in front of their kids. Children need to hear their parents say “I love you” to each other and show it.

Why?

This means that in everything you do you need to protect and respect your spouse.

Never talk in a negative way about your spouse in front of your children.

Your children need to see that you are united in your love for one another and you will not put you partner down in front of the kids. When you have a disagreement with your spouse try to solve the problems where little eyes and ears cannot witness your emotions and tensions.

When they do witness a fight or argument model for the children acts of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Show your children that there is a place for disagreements however you still love and care for your spouse and that that love will never be threatened by any disagreement.

Next time your child sees you give a big kiss to your spouse and says, “Gross”, just say, “thank you” and know that they are seeing love is a priority in your home.

A husband and wife should be hugging, kissing and holding hands in front of their kids. Children need to hear their parents say “I love you” to each other and show it.

Why?

Your marriage relationship must be the number one consideration in the family unit.

It is more important than soccer practice and dance lessons.

The love and respect you show your spouse far outweigh anything the kids will learn on the game fields and in ball practice.

Few of your children will have the chance to play professional sports, however all of them will have the chance to grow in love with other people and even marry and have children of their own.

The lessons learned from the examples set by you will be a major effect on their future.

The Number One Priority for a Successful Parenting

The number one thing that parents can do for their children is to love one another and show it.

Children must see their parents love for one another in action.

A husband and wife should be hugging, kissing and holding hands in front of their kids. Children need to hear their parents say “I love you” to each other and show it.

Why?

A love that a man has for a woman in a Christian marriage is a symbol of the love God has for us.

We God’s church and people are referred in the bible as God’s bride.

The comparison to bride and groom should not be overlooked as God established marriage as his first institution on earth.

The love that a man has for his wife is the type of love God has for his people.

It is that kind of intimacy that God has for his church. We no matter how we want to deny it or negate it are a model of God to our children. We have been made in the image of God the creator and in his image, we have become a part of His creation by conceiving our children.

These creations, our children see the love of God through our love for one another.

The Number One Priority for a Successful Parenting

The number one thing that parents can do for their children is to love one another and show it.

Children must see their parents love for one another in action.

A husband and wife should be hugging, kissing and holding hands in front of their kids. Children need to hear their parents say “I love you” to each other and show it.

Why?

Children need this model of love as a base to build their future relationships and marriage.

In some respects, psychologists are correct when they say that we tend to marry someone like our parents. Because of the patterns set by our parents we tend toward those same patterns when we seek out a mate. Much of our likes and dislikes were formed by the model our parents set for us to follow.

Because I was raised in a large family out of necessity, we ate a lot of casseroles. I came to love casseroles and move toward that kind of menu as a comfort food and a habit food.

Our parents by their examples trained us in the way we should love and who to love.

A husband and wife should be hugging, kissing and holding hands in front of their kids. Children need to hear their parents say “I love you” to each other and show it.

Why?

Children need to see the security that the parents love brings. No matter what happens in life the love that a husband has for his wife will not fail.

Other things will fail but not the love of the parents and in turn, the love the parents have for their children.

Begin again

begin again

Begin Again

One of the most extraordinary things we have at our disposal is the ability to start over to begin again.

Use that power to turn your life around.

Recreate a new you.

Begin again living the life you desire.

Begin again seeking the dreams you had.

Start anew.

One day at a time…

one day at a time

One Day at a Time.

We want things to always go faster until it is done and then we wonder where the time went.

This life that we are living only happens one day at a time. We cannot live in tomorrow and we cannot rewind and relive our yesterdays.

So what are we to do?

Live this day to the fullest. Use every minute and experience all that this day has to give.

It’s so easy to say but hard to do as we waste so much time thinking about and fretting over the time we want and the time we lost.

Live today.

Make it simple…

rather than2

Make it simple but significant…

Far too many times we we over complicate things.

In the end it all comes down to simple choices and answers.

Keep your life simple but make the simplicity worth it.

Worth the time and energy.

But not bring too much baggage into your choices.

Make it simple.

No matter how far…

no matter how far

How come…?

How come no matter how far you are from your family when you get together,they can still push your buttons?

Because they are the ones who installed them.

Your family have had a lifetime of practice getting to you. They know you and you know them.

Understand your buttons and step away from them when you get together with family. That also means you know their buttons too. So, stay away from pushing their buttons.

Getting together family can be one of the most anxiety driven times. Understand this and act to block the effects of family.

You can choose your friends but you are pretty much stuck with your family.
