I WANT TO BE THE LIGHT, WHAT DOES THAT PHRASE MEAN TO YOU?

December 28, 2017

 

The book of roo1 JOHN 1:5-7

THIS IS THE MESSAGE WE HAVE HEARD FROM HIM AND DECLARE TO YOU: GOD IS LIGHT; IN HIM THERE IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL. IF WE CLAIM TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM AND YET WALK IN THE DARKNESS, WE LIE AND DO NOT LIVE OUT THE TRUTH. BUT IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT, AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT, WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS, HIS SON, PURIFIES US FROM ALL SIN.

Hi all. I know it has been awhile, but as you know I only write when I feel led or “inspired” Well lucky for you all, that moment has come. I AM INSPIRED TO WRITE LOL. Now I know I touched on this a little bit last year but this week the Lord kept laying it on my heart to ask you all one question. What does being the Light in the Dark mean to you?

I feel that phrase has sadly become more of a Christian cliche, than truth! I look around at the world today and I see so many Christians claiming to be the Light in the Dark, but yet their lifestyles are not matching up to what their claiming.

When I say this, I say it with no judgement! I am not perfect I am far from it and I make just as many mistakes as anyone. But even though I’m not Perfect I still try with all I have to be the Light and live in love!

I am only stating what I feel the Lords placing on my Heart to share.  So if anyone has a problem with this article I suggest you pray about it and take it up with him (JESUS), not me. Because this article truly is from him, not me. I just have the courage to speak up and the strength to allow him to use me.

(Romans 12:2 ) Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Now I know we all have heard that Scripture, that’s like Christianity 101. I know, it’s probably one of the first scriptures a pastors taught you after getting “Saved”. But to me it’s sad, because that scripture verse is pounded into our heads so much that we lose sight of the truth that it stands for. We lose sight of the power it has, and again it has become another Christian cliche. So I’m asking you to do me one thing. From now on when reading that Scripture verse. I want you to truly read it, soak it up let it resonate within you, let it be your truth!

When doing a little research for this article I counted 80 different Scriptures where the Bible talks about being the Light. Now that’s only what I found in researching for like 2-3 hours! If I would have sat there researching for days or weeks like I usually do. I probably would have found plenty more! But I felt like I was being pressed for time because I really felt the Lord telling me to get this article out today!

So if the Bible mentions being the Light over 80 tines. Than clearly it’s important and clearly it’s not just a cliche and clearly it’s a part of the Lords heart and vision for us. So my question to all you “Christians”. We see how important being the Light is to the Lord but how important is it to you? And are you fully representing his Light? Truly if Jesus was here now looking into your eyes and straight to your soul could you be confident in knowing he’d be proud of you?

Could you be confident that people of the world would see his light and face in you? Are you someone that respesents the righteousness of GOD and his Light, or are you a “pretender” a fake? Now I’m not accusing you of anything I’m not even the one asking this question. I’m saying the Lords the one asking you these questions.

Now before I say this next thing I apologize before hand. Please know I’m not trying to sound morbid when saying this. But if we never woke up today or if we got in a car accident on our way to work and died. Could we be confident that we’d see Jesus face to face? And if we did would we be ashamed of the Person who stood before him? Would we be fearful that he’d be disappointed in us? Or worse would he be hurt by our actions?

These are all real questions. I know they may not seem it but when that day comes when you hear those trumpets blaring or when you take your last breathe. Those questions are going to become more real than anything you have ever imagined. Those questions are going to be the only meaningful thing to you. Your money isn’t going to be worth a single thing, your career isn’t going to be worth anything, even your family isn’t going to be worth anything. You will not be able to talk your way to salvation like you can talk your way out of a speeding ticket. The few things that will be valuable are those few questions above.

We have become such a selfish generation. It’s all about having “fun” and making everyone around us “comfortable”. That’s more important than doing what’s right by GOD and what’s more sad is Churches are falling for this trap just as much as the average person.

So I am saying I think it’s time we go back to the WWJD days. For those who do not know, they were bracelets everyone wore to remind us all what would Jesus do. In those days we used our heart and mind before acting out. We questioned our thoughts, our behavior, our desires, before acting on them. So I’m asking you all, let’s get back to that. Instead of our first reaction being let me grab my phone so I can post on Facebook or tweet on Twitter. Let it be, God is this glorifying you? Is my light going to get brighter? Or dimmer?

I am Going to regret admitting this. Because I know I’m going to sound exactly like my Father when I do. Because he’s been lecturing me and my family for months about this, but here I go LOL. After reading Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the so many other social media outlets that are out there.  I feel like in a way that has become our new “GOD”!

We are more focused on posting, tweeting and instagramming than we are about getting to know the Lord. We are to concerned about connecting to our social media accounts than we are about connecting to the Lords heart.

I feel like all the things the enemy used to trap us teens and kids with years ago. He’s now using those same things, same tactics, but now is using them on the older generations. Which in my opinion is going to be worse and more damaging .

Because at least years ago when young people screwed up, got caught up in sin, trapped in the Darkness. We had adults to lean on, mentors to go to, to encourage us, to pray with us, to console us, to witness to us. To grab us by the hand and literally pull us out of that dark place. We had people like my friend Mary Traynor who I mentioned in my previous article Who were there for us.

But it’s getting scary because I feel like the enemy is now attacking those people harder than he ever has. He’s using the things he used to manipulate us so called young people and is now using those same tactics to manipulate the middle aged, grown adults.

Eventually that’s going to be more damaging than it ever was to us 80s/90s kids. Because yes kids are our future, but if we don’t have the strong courageous adults to mentor them, to love on them, to teach them. Than spiritually their going to die! That Light, that flame is going to burn out! And yes I know you don’t want to hear this but you the adults, the middle aged. You all are their future, your their example. So you can choose to be “Cool” or be the Light!

I will shine for Christ. I will walk out his desires, his purpose, his heart. His hearts desires are my hearts desires. His joy is my joy. I will not just pretend when I’m around “Church People”. I will live my life glowing for him.

I WILL BE THE LIGHT! WHAT WILL YOU BE?

I promise the next article I write I will give an update on my book. But for now I’m going to end with this. Don’t just say you will be the Light but live it, breathe the warmth of his love in. Let it be your lifeline. That’s it for today all have an awesome day and New Years. 2018 HERE WE COME!!!! God bless BE THAT LIGHT!!!

BLESSED!!! (DEDICATED TO MY ENTIRE FAMILY)

April 6, 2011

NUMBERS 6:24-26

THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU;

THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE ON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU;

THE LORD TURN HIS FACE TOWARD YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE

Hi all.  Well this week has been one crazy week!!! I am sorry I didn’t do a blog this week, its been very hectic here.  I have lots of announcements, some good some bad lol.  Lets see where do I begin? Well to start with, the guy from Gospel innovation kept his promise!!! he made me 3 different banners/logo’s to pick from, but I am in love with all 3 and am having a awfully hard time deciding which one I want to become the official THE-BOOK-OF-ROO banner/logo, so I am asking all my THE-BOOK-OF-ROO people to help me out and vote for which banner/logo you like best, to vote just go to this website  http://www.pollsb.com/polls/p2182308-poll_the_book_of_roo_decided_upgrade_the

The second announcement is, I became an aunt for the first time! a baby girl!! she was born this past Friday April 1St she is so cute and my first name is her middle name isn’t that cute? 🙂 she has inspired me to make the video above that is of my family, please watch this video you will all love it 🙂

The third thing is more a prayer request than an announcement, but after the baby was born, me and my mom planned on spending most of the week at my sisters to get to know the new baby, but sadly on our way to the hospital the day after she was born, we all heard this big POP  and later we found out that Popping sound came from our van!! I do not know all the technical details, but bottom line is after 13 years our van finally gave out on us 😦 so I am asking, no I am begging, please all be praying for us, that some way or another GOD works some kind of miracle and we our able to get a new van!!!

You know these past few days the LORD has really been teaching me how to enjoy the many blessings HE gives us freely every day. When that van broke down, sure me, mom and dad could of got angry and let that ruin the babies home coming and we could have let that take our JOY away, but we didn’t, because we knew what was important, we knew what mattered and that was that my sister and her baby were healthy and on their way home!!!  I may not be rich in material things but I am rich, I am blessed with things that are much more important.

It took a lot of strength and courage for my sister and her husband to go through with having a baby, because for a very long time we were not sure how safe it was for her to have one, because of all my medical issues.  You all have heard me say before that the past 3 years have been hard and I have been sick  and have been through a lot and been in and out of the hospital, but the one good thing that came out of all that, was the fact that since I was in there so much, my sister had asked me if I wouldn’t mind getting a genetic DR to come look at me, of course I said no problem, my sister would do anything for me so its the least I could have done for her.

So the Doctor came and did some blood work, and through all that we found out which type of Osteogenisis Imperfecta I had and also found out that the type I had was not a hereditary thing, it was not something that could get passed down to any future baby!!! which was a huge relief to my whole family including me.

I am very thankful for my life and have no complaints but I do know how hard it is to live with Osteogenisis Imperfecta, not just on the person with the disease, but also for the entire family.

Having a disease of any kind really does transform the entire family.  All I can say is you have the choice as to how it transforms you? Me and my family choose to have it make us stronger!!

Like you all have heard before I was not supposed to live past 10 days!!! 10 days!!! there were so many things I was told I would not live through.  So many times I was told I would not have the chance to experience LIFE.  I never in a million years thought I would out live family members and friends that I loved.

Never did I think id have a chance to experience the things in life that I have been blessed to experience.  I remember as a kid praying and saying OK GOD just need to make it a few more years to see my brother get married and than id say OK GOD a few more years to see my sister graduate, and so on and so on.  I have always been at peace and have known that my life is in GODS hands and whatever happens, happens.  What if GOD didn’t answer my prayers? what if he did take me home before I had a chance to see my niece, or my brother and sister get married? would I have been mad? would I have felt like GOD was a failure? Heck no!!! we can not control time, GOD is in control of my life, always has and always will.

My friend who I had asked you all to pray for a few weeks ago, the lady who was in the I.C.U, well she is home and doing fantastic.  She is doing so well that she actually had told my mom to tell me to read Psalms 91. Does anyone know Psalms 91?

Psalms 91 says: Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. ” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.  He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.  You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.  If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.  For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.  You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.

When I read that I was reminded of when I was younger and how any time things would get really bad, or scary, my parents and my one friend would read that scripture to me.  People ask me all the time why I think I have lived as long as I have? My answer is right there in Psalms 91, read it carefully and you will understand, it says: whoever dwells in the most high, which means whoever dwells in him will be under the LORDS covering.

So again we have a choice? we can dwell on the good or dwell on the bad? But if we dwell on the good, if we dwell on L.I.F.E the LORDS hand will be on us, no disease, no harm, nothing can touch us and we will have long LIFE in JESUS!!!

I am going to enjoy every minute I have and not waste time dwelling on stupid negative unimportant things.  What is important is L.I.F.E and what you do with it, you can be a blessing, a blessing to L.I.F.E, a blessing to the world.

L.I.F.E (LOVE IN FULL EFFECT) lets make a difference in this world, lets stop living in fear and get out our armor and sword and fight for L.I.F.E!!!

I am blessed because I have a family that loves me

I am blessed because I have a roof over my head and people who care for me

I am blessed because I am experiencing what L.I.F.E is

I am blessed because I have an amazing team of doctors who care for me

I am blessed because CHRIST carried my cross and died for my sins

I am blessed because I have the LOVE OF CHRIST IN ME

THAT’S IT FOR TODAY ENJOY ALL. GOD BLESS

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 7) DEDICATED TO MY PARENTS THOM AND SHELLIE YAFANARO

November 27, 2010

HI ALL. SORRY FOR LATE START AGAIN, WAS BUSY DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS WITH MY MOM. I GOT A LETTER THE OTHER DAY FROM A NEW MOMMY WHOSE CHILD HAS O.I, SHE HAD ASKED ME TO TALK MORE ABOUT MY PARENTS, AND TALK ABOUT THE TYPE OF PERSON I AM BECAUSE OF THEM, SO THAT IS WHAT I AM GOING TO WRITE ABOUT TODAY, I HAD BEEN WANTING TO DO IT FOR A FEW DAYS NOW, JUST WAS WAITING ON GODS TIMING, AND I FEEL THAT TIME IS NOW!! WOW WHERE DO I BEGIN, WELL FIRST OF ALL, I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM IF IT WERE NOT FOR THEM, EVERYTHING I HAVE LEARNED THROUGH OUT MY LIFE, I HAVE LEARNED FROM THE GREAT EXAMPLE THAT THEY HAVE SET OUT FOR NOT ONLY ME, BUT ALSO MY BROTHER, AND SISTER. THEY HAVE TAUGHT US HOW TO LOVE, AND TAUGHT US ABOUT WHAT TRUE LOVE IS, AND WHO OUR TRUE LOVE SHOULD BE, WHICH IS OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO NEVER BE ASHAMED OF THE PERSON I AM, MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME TO ALWAYS HAVE A OPEN HEART TOWARDS OTHERS, AND TO ALWAYS PUT GOD BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE, EVEN BEFORE OUR SELVES. MY MOM IS A WONDERFUL MOTHER/CAREGIVER, AND BEST FRIEND TO ME. BOTH MY PARENTS HAVE GIVEN THEIR ALL IN TO TAKING CARE OF ME, AND GIVEN ME THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU ALL READ MY PAST BLOGS, BUT IF YOU DID, YOU WILL SEE ONE FROM A WEEK AGO, WHERE I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, AND SICK, I WAS SICK FOR ALMOST 3 DAYS, MY MOTHER STAYED UP WITH ME FOR ALL THAT TIME CARING FOR ME, AND COMFORTING ME. THAT IS JUST THE TYPE OF PERSON SHE IS, SHES ALWAYS CARING FOR OTHERS, BOTH MY PARENTS DEFINITELY HAVE A SERVANT’S HEART. MY DAD HAS ALWAYS TAUGHT ME, TO BE MYSELF, NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY OR THINK, DON’T LET IT BOTHER YOU, YOU KNOW THE TYPE OF PERSON YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE, AND GOD WILL SHOW YOU IF THERE ARE THINGS THAT NEED TO CHANGE WITH IN YOU. THOSE ARE JUST TWO OR THREE THINGS THAT MY PARENTS HAVE TAUGHT ME. ONE OF MY TWO MORE SPECIAL MEMORIES FROM WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, WAS WHEN MY DAD CAME HOME FROM WORK ONE DAY, AND GAVE ALL US GIRLS WHICH MEANS ME MY SISTER AND MOM, THIS HEART JEWELRY, MINE WAS A RING, AND MY SISTERS, AND MOMS I THINK WAS BRACELETS, AND WHEN HE GAVE IT TO US, HE TOLD US HE WANTED US TO ALWAYS WHERE IT, SO THAT WE WOULD KNOW HIS HEART WAS ALWAYS WITH US, MY DAD WOULD ALWAYS DO SPECIAL THINGS LIKE THAT FOR US. AFTER I GOT OLDER THOUGH, AND IN TO MY TEEN YEARS, MY RING STARTED TO GET SMALL, AND MY MOM KEPT TRYING TO GET IT OFF ME BUT I WOULDN’T TAKE IT OFF, SO FOR MY,  I THINK IT WAS 16TH BIRTHDAY, MY PARENTS HAD A HEART SHAPED RING MADE FOR ME, AND IT HAS 4 HEARTS ON IT, AND MY PARENTS TOLD ME, THAT EACH HEART REPRESENTED SOMEONE, ONE HEART WAS MY MOMS, ONE HEART WAS MY DADS, ONE HEART WAS MINE, AND ONE WAS THE LORDS, AND THEY TOLD ME THEY WANTED ME TO ALWAYS WEAR THAT, SO I KNEW THAT THEIR HEARTS WERE ALWAYS WITH MINE, I HAVE NEVER TAKEN THAT RING OFF. THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE THINGS THAT MAKE MY PARENTS SO GREAT, AND MAKE ME THE PERSON I AM. SINCE YESTERDAY WAS THANKSGIVING, MY TIP FOR TODAY IS TO TRULY THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR GRATEFUL FOR. I AM GRATEFUL FOR MY PARENTS. I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM IF NOT FOR THEM. I AM SO THANKFUL GOD PICKED THEM TO BE MY PARENTS, I WOULD NOT BE ALIVE IF IT WERE NOT FOR CHRIST JESUS. I’M SO THANKFUL THAT MY PARENTS WERE INTRODUCED TO GODS LOVE, AS YOUNG ADULTS, AND THAT THEY WERE THAN ABLE TO INTRODUCE ME TO THAT SAME KIND OF LOVE. BE THANKFUL BE THANKFUL BE THANKFUL THAT’S ALL MY TIP IS FOR TODAY. GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS 🙂

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 6)

November 24, 2010

HI ALL. I’M SO SORRY I’M RUNNING SO LATE ON WRITING MY BLOG, ITS BEEN A VERY HECTIC DAY LOL. I SPENT TIME TODAY WITH MY MOM, AND SISTER, WHILE THEY GOT STUFF READY FOR TOMORROWS BIG THANKSGIVING DINNER. MY TIP FOR TODAY IS TO BE KIND TO OTHERS, AND NOT BE SO JUDGMENTAL, AND JUST PLAIN RUDE. ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO I WAS IN A MALL SHOPPING FOR BABY CLOTHES FOR MY FIRST, AND SOON TO BE NIECE.  AS WE WERE SHOPPING WE DECIDED TO GO GET A PRETZEL, AND COOKIE, AND CHILL OUT ON ONE OF THE BENCHES, AND AS WE WERE SITTING THERE THIS LADY, NO OLDER THAN LATE 50’s EARLY 60’s,  SHE GOES TO WALK BY ME, AND SHE STOPS DEAD IN HER TRAPS, AND TURNS AROUND, AND WALKS RIGHT OVER TO ME, AND LITERALLY STARES RIGHT IN TO MY FACE, PEOPLE CAN BE SO RUDE TO THE DISABLED. INSTEAD OF STARING AT US OR LOOKING AT US LIKE WE ARE FROM ANOTHER PLANET, WHY DON’T YOU TALK TO US LIKE A HUMAN BEING? SO MANY PEOPLE THINK IF YOUR IN A WHEELCHAIR OR ARE SMALL, YOU GOT TO TALK TO US LIKE WERE BRAIN DEAD OR SOMETHING. WE HAVE A BRAIN PEOPLE!!! WE CAN THINK FOR OUR SELVES!!! INSTEAD OF STARING AT US, TALK TO US, IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS WE WILL MOST LIKELY BE ABLE TO ANSWER THEM. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT ALL DISABLED PEOPLE, BUT I DO KNOW WITH MYSELF ID RATHER YOU ASKED ME STUFF THAN JUST LOOK AT ME LIKE I’M A FREAK. I CAN UNDERSTAND IF KIDS STARE AT US, BUT I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY AN ADULT WOULD? IF YOUR AN ADULT, START ACTING LIKE IT!! ESPECIALLY THE CHRISTIANS IN THE WORLD, I’M SORRY TO SAY BUT YOU ALL CAN BE JUST AS BAD, WHICH IS EVEN MORE SHAMEFUL, BECAUSE YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE BETTER THAN THAT. WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARK REMEMBER? SO MY TIP FOR TODAY IS THOSE OF YOU WHO REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW TO REACT AROUND DISABLED PEOPLE. MY TIP IS, IF YOU SEE A DISABLED PERSON DON’T STARE ITS SO SO RUDE, AND HURTFUL, AND IF YOU SEE ONE, DON’T BE AFRAID TO GO UP, AND TALK TO THEM LIKE HUMAN BEINGS.  MYSELF FOR INSTANCE I’M 25 INCHES TALL, I GOT SO MANY PEOPLE THAT MAY COME UP, AND TRY TO TALK TO ME, BUT THAN WILL BLOW IT, BECAUSE THEY TRY TALKING TO ME LIKE I’M A 4 YEAR OLD LITTLE KID LOL. COME ON WORLD YOUR SMARTER THAN THAT. ALL WE WANT IS TO BE TREATED OUR AGE, AND NOT BE JUDGED BY OUR LOOKS. YOU HEAR ON THE NEWS ALL THE TIME NOW, IF A KIDS DIFFERENT IN ANY WAY THEIR GETTING PHYSICALLY, AND MENTALLY BEAT UP TO THE POINT THEY DON’T EVEN WANT TO LIVE ANYMORE, THAT IS SO SO SO SAD. A CHILD SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FEEL LIKE THE ONLY WAY TO GET NOTICED OR RESPECTED IS BY  BEING RUDE TO OTHER KIDS!! WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO ATTACK EACH OTHER WE ARE SUPPOSED TO LOVE EACH OTHER, AND ITS SAD THAT MOST KIDS OUT THERE DON’T KNOW THAT. THESE KIDS ARE ATTACKING OTHER KIDS BECAUSE MORE THAN LIKELY THEY ARE LEARNING ALL THAT IN THEIR OWN HOMES, AND I KNOW FOR MYSELF I CAN UNDERSTAND IT, I SEE IT EVERY DAY WITH ADULTS, JUST BY HOW THEY TREAT ME OR OTHER DISABLED PEOPLE, SO IF AN ADULT CAN DO THAT TO A DISABLED PERSON, AND THEIR CHILD SEE’S THAT, THAN OF COURSE THE KIDS GOING TO GO IN A SCHOOL, AND DO THAT SAME THING TO ANYONE THAT’S DIFFERENT, ITS CALLED LEARN BEHAVIOR PEOPLE!!! I AM SO THANKFUL MY PARENTS TAUGHT ALL OF US TO BE RESPECTED, AND BE RESPECTFUL, TO EVEN PEOPLE THAT MAY LOOK OR ACT DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE ARE USED TO. MY PARENTS TAUGHT US TO NOT JUDGE OTHERS. THEY SHOWED US WE CANT CONTROL WHAT OTHERS THINK OR DO, ALL WE CAN CONTROL IS OUR SELVES. THAT’S REALLY ALL I GOT TO SHARE FOR TODAY, IT ISN’T MUCH, BUT ITS ALL I FELT THE LORD SHOWED ME TODAY. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED THANKSGIVING. I WILL MORE THAN LIKELY NOT BE BLOGGING TOMORROW, I’M PROBABLY TAKING THE DAY OFF LOL. BUT PLEASE KEEP COMING TO THE SITE, THERE’S MANY THINGS TO READ, AND LOOK AT. PLEASE ANYONE THAT READS THIS BLOG I ASK THAT THEY BE BLESSED IN JESUS NAME. GOD BLESS, AND HAPPY TURKEY DAY 🙂 P.S I KNOW THERE ARE ALLOT OF TYPOS, BUT WAS TRYING TO GET THIS DONE IN A HURRY SO I APOLOGIZE

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 5)

November 23, 2010

WOW WELL THERE IS JUST SO MUCH RUNNING THROUGH MY LITTLE HEAD LATELY, I JUST DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN LOL. AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, MY ALL TIME FAVE CHRISTIAN SINGER MADE ME AND MY FAMILY A VIDEO YESTERDAY, AND THE MESSAGE BEHIND IT WAS TO BE THANKFUL, THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING IN LIFE EVEN THE LITTLE THINGS,. SHE GAVE A SCRIPTURE VERSE IN THE VIDEO WHICH IS, 1 THESSALONIANS 5 16-18, SHE, AND ALL OF US IN THE VIDEO, WERE ALSO TRYING TO SHOW YOU ALL TO NOT GIVE UP, FIGHT BACK, AND BELIEVE IN HIS WORD, HIS PEACE, HIS JOY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HIS LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANOTHER SCRIPTURE SHE PUT IN THE VIDEO IS MARK 9 VERSE 23 IT SAYS ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF A PERSON BELIEVES!!!! BELIEVES IN WHO? OUR LORD OF COURSE!!! SO MY TIP FOR TODAY IS JUST BELIEVE, AND BE THANKFUL THAT WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHERE WE CAN BE FREE TO BELIEVE!!!! IT IS SO EASY FOR US WHEN THINGS ARE NOT GOING RIGHT IN LIFE TO GET ANGRY AND MAD, AND NOT BE ABLE TO APPRECIATE THE LIFE THAT CHRIST HAS MADE FOR US. REMEMBER HE DIED, AND ROSE AGAIN FOR OUR SINS, OUR TROUBLES OUR HEART ACHE. SO WHEN YOU THINK OF THE BIG PICTURE HOW COULD YOU NOT BE THANKFUL. HE GAVE US LIFE, SO WHO CARES IF YOU GOT A BILLION THINGS TO DO BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS, I HEAR SO MANY PEOPLE COMPLAIN CAUSE THEY GOT TO GET THIS DONE OR THAT DONE, AND ARE PANICKING CAUSE THEY ONLY GOT SO MUCH TIME TO DO IT. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THAT STUFF? REALLY COME ON? YOU WILL GET EVERYTHING DONE THERE’S NO REASON TO GET DEPRESSED IF YOU DON’T. RIGHT NOW IN MY HOUSE HOLD MY MOM HAS TO TAKE CARE OF ME WHO IS SICK, MY GRANDPA, AND MY DADS BUSINESS, AND STILL MAKE A THANKSGIVING DINNER, OH AND DID I MENTION OUR VANS IN SUCH BAD SHAPE SHE LITERALLY HAS TO PRAY BEFORE SHE GETS IN IT TO MAKE SURE SHE GETS THERE SAFELY LOL. MY POINT IS THOUGH EVEN THOUGH WE GOT STRUGGLES EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE TRIALS YOU WILL NOT SEE US FREAKING OUT OVER IT, BECAUSE WE KNOW THE TRUE MEANING OF LIFE, AND WE SEE THE MIRACLES GOD HAS DONE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. DON’T GET ME WRONG YES THERE ARE BAD DAYS WHERE WE TOO JUST WANT TO GIVE UP, AND NOT FIGHT BACK, BUT WE GOT TO FIGHT BACK. PEOPLE ASK ME ALL THE TIME, WELL IF THIS GOD YOU SPEAK OF IS REAL WHY DOESN’T HE DO SOMETHING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER? REMEMBER THE BIBLE OR GOD NEVER SAID LIFE WAS GOING TO BE EASY!!! THE BIBLE TELLS US THERE WILL BE STRUGGLES, AND HARD TIMES. THERE’S MANY STORIES IN THE BIBLE, THAT TALK ABOUT STRUGGLES, AND HARD TIMES. LOOK AT THE BOOK OF RUTH EVEN, I KNOW YOUR ALL PROBABLY SAYING THE BOOK OF RUTH? WHY SHE GOT WHAT SHE WANTED AND NEEDED IN THE END RIGHT? WELL YES THAT’S TRUE, BUT IT DIDN’T INSTANTLY HAPPEN, HER LIFE WAS TORN APART, AND SHE HAD NOTHING LEFT TO LIVE FOR, BUT DID SHE GIVE UP? NO SHE DIDN’T, SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP, SHE MADE A CHOICE OF NOT GIVING UP, AND EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS HEART BROKEN BY THE LOSS, SHE STILL PICKED UP THE PIECES OF HER LIFE, SHE EVEN TOOK CARE OF HER MOTHER IN LAW. DEEP DOWN RUTH KNEW THAT GOD WAS IN CONTROL. THAT’S HOW WE NEED TO LIVE, WE NEED TO STOP DWELLING ON THINGS, GOD HAS OUR LIVES ALREADY PLANNED OUT FOR US!!! IF WE LISTEN AND OBEY HIS WORD, WHAT GOD HAS FOR OUR LIVES WILL COME TO PASS. IN THE BEGINNING OF THE LORDS PRAYER IT SAYS WHAT? OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN HALLOWED BE THY NAME THY KINGDOM COME THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. DOES ANYONE GET WHAT THAT MEANS? THAT MEANS WHATEVER GOD HAS FOR US IN HEAVEN, WE DON’T NEED TO WAIT TILL WERE IN HEAVEN TO GET IT, WE CAN HAVE WHAT IS IN HEAVEN RIGHT HERE ON EARTH!!! WE JUST NEED TO BELIEVE BELIEVE BELIEVE BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!! STAND FIRM ON HIS WORD, ANY TIME NEGATIVE THINGS COME TO PASS GET OUT THAT BIBLE QUOTE THOSE SCRIPTURES, AND SAY NO TO ANY NEGATIVITY OR BAD THING THAT TRIES TO ATTACK YOU, AND YOUR LIFE. PSALMS 50 VERSE 3-4 SAYS OUR GOD APPROACHES AND HE IS NOT SILENT FIRE DEVOURS EVERYTHING IN HIS WAY, AND A GREAT STORM RAGES AROUND HIM. THAT’S HOW POWERFUL OUR GOD CAN BE, HE IS FIGHTING WITH YOU, HE IS FIGHTING FOR YOU. SO PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD AND FIGHT OFF ANY BAD THING THAT’S IN YOUR WAY.  THAT IS MY TIP FOR TODAY. I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BLESSED DAY, I ASK THAT GOD TOUCHES THE HEARTS OF WHO EVER READS THIS IN JESUS NAME

TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 4)

November 22, 2010

WELL I KNOW ITS BEEN A FEW DAYS SINCE I HAVE GIVEN MY LITTLE TIPS, BUT AS YOU ALL KNOW ITS BEEN A HECTIC AND INSANE WEEK FOR ME LOL, SO I JUST DIDN’T HAVE THE TIME OR ENERGY TO DO IT LOL. I ALSO FELT GOD WAS LEADING ME TO WRITE OTHER THINGS, AND I DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE YOU ALL TO MUCH TO READ IN ONE DAY LOL. YESTERDAY I GOT A LETTER FROM A PRISCILLA SHE HAS A DAUGHTER WITH O.I, I SEEN PIX OF HER LITTLE GIRL YESTERDAY SHE IS SO SO BEAUTIFUL SHE NO MORE THAN A FEW MONTHS OLD I THINK. PRISCILLA HAD ASKED ME TO TALK ABOUT, AND GIVE ADVICE TO NEW MOMS WHO HAVE A BABY WITH O.I, AND ARE STILL LEARNING HOW TO HANDLE CERTAIN DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS, FOR INSTANCE WHEN YOUR BABY HAS TO GO FOR BLOOD WORK OR FOR ITS VACCINATION SHOTS WHAT DO YOU DO??? LIKE IN HER CASE SHE HAD HER DAUGHTER GET THE SHOTS, AND THAN WHEN SHE CAME HOME SHE REALIZED THAT HER BABY MUST OF BROKEN HER LEG FROM GETTING THESE SHOTS. SO WHAT DO YOU DO? DO YOU RISK IT AND GO THROUGH WITH THE SHOTS OR DO YOU SAY NO, AND NOT GET THE SHOTS? I KNOW SOME PEOPLE MAYBE SAYING THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME TO TALK ABOUT, BUT TO SOME NEW MOTHERS IT ISN’T. IN MY CASE I GOT THE SHOTS, WAS IT A RISK YES, BUT SOME TIMES YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT WHATS WORSE, TAKING THE RISK OF BREAKING ONE OR TWO BONES, OR GETTING SOME DEADLY VIRUS THAT MAYBE THE SHOT COULD OF PREVENTED. THAT GOES FOR ANYTHING IN LIFE WHEN YOU HAVE O.I THOUGH. ME AND MY PARENTS HAD TO FINALLY LEARN, OK WE CAN PUT ME IN A BUBBLE, AND WORRY ABOUT EVERY SINGLE THING THAT COULD BREAK MY BONES, OR THEY COULD LET ME LEARN WHAT I CAN DO, AND NOT DO, AND ACTUALLY LIVE OUT MY LIFE. ARE WE CAREFUL? YES OF COURSE, DO WE WORRY AT TIMES? YES OF COURSE WE DO, BUT IF YOU SIT THERE AND WORRY ABOUT EVERY SINGLE THING THAT COULD BREAK A PERSON WITH O.I BONES THAN YOU WILL EVENTUALLY DRIVE YOUR SELF CRAZY!!! MY MOM WAS MOSTLY MY CAREGIVER SO AFTER AWHILE SHE GOT USED TO MY BONES AND MY BODY, AND HAD LEARNED JUST HOW MUCH PRESSURE SHE COULD PUT ON ME WITHOUT BREAKING ME. SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU ALL IS, STILL DON’T LET A NURSE OR DOCTOR TOUCH YOUR KID UNLESS YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THEM DOING SO, AND YOUR SURE THAT THEY KNOW ALL THEY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT O.I, CAUSE YES THERE ARE EVEN DOCTORS OUT THERE THAT DON’T KNOW ALLOT ABOUT O.I. ALSO IF YOUR BABY HAS TO GET A SHOT SEE IF THE NURSE WILL LET YOU DO LIKE MY NURSES LET MY MOM DO. MY MOM MOVED MY LEGS FOR THEM AND HELD THEM DOWN WHEN THEY NEEDED HER TO, THEY DID NOT ACTUALLY TOUCH ME ALL THEY DID WAS BASICALLY PUT THE NEEDLES IN. ALSO IF YOUR CHILD EVER NEEDS BLOOD WORK, MAKE SURE THAT THEY DO NOT PUT THE RUBBER BAND TO TIGHT, THEY CAN NOT PUT IT TIGHT AROUND A O.I CHILD’S ARMS OR LEGS LIKE THEY COULD THE AVERAGE CHILD, SO ALWAYS MAKE SURE IT ISN’T TO TIGHT TO WHERE YOUR CHILD WILL GET HURT. NOW PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THOUGH THAT THESE RULES DO NOT APPLY FOR ALL O.I CHILDREN THESE RULES ARE FOR SEVERE CASES OF O.I OR AT LEAST PARTIALLY SEVERE. WELL THAT’S MY TIP FOR TODAY. HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT, GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS, WITH LOVE JACKIE 🙂

MY TIP OF THE DAY (DAY 3)

November 16, 2010

OK ALL TODAYS TIP OF THE DAY IS MOSTLY FOR O.I PATIENTS OR PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING WITH SEVERE CRONIC PAIN LIKE I AND MOST PEOPLE WITH O.I HAVE. HOW DO WE DEAL WITH IT???? HMMM WELL I CANT SPEAK FOR ALL O.I PATIENTS BUT I CAN SPEAK FOR MYSELF!!! AS YOU ALL READ EVERYTHING IM PUTTING YOU CAN OBVIOUSLY TELL I HAVE A STRONG BELIEF SYSTEM AND FAITH IN MY LORD JESUS CHRIST. AND MY PARENTS HAVE ALWAYS TAUGHT AND PRETTY MUCH INSTILLED IN ME THE WORD OF GOD (THE BIBLE) AND THERES A SCRIPTURE IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS A MERRY HEART DOETH LIKE A MEDICINE SO ME AND MY FAMILY ALWAYS TOOK THAT SCRIPTURE VERY SERIOUS AND SO WHENEVER ID BREAK TO THIS DAY I ALWAYS GO AND PRAY AND PUT ON MUSIC AND MEDITATE ON THE LORD AND HIS LOVE AND HAVE LEARNED HOW TO BE ABLE TO HAND IT ALL OVER TO GOD!!! SO IF YOUR STRUGGLING WITH SOMETHING OR GOING THROUGH ANY TYPE OF TRIALS KNOW THAT GOD IS THERE AND HE LOVES YOU AND WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEEDS BUT YOU GOT TO BE WILLING TO TRUST HIM AND HAND ALL YOUR WORRIES AND CARES OVER TO HIM/ GETTING ANGRY AT LIFE ISNT GOING TO SOLVE ANYTHING. ALWAYS HAVE LAUGHTER TOO, DOCTORS WILL THINK WERE CRAZY CAUSE THEY WILL SEE ME BREAK TEN BONES AT ONCE AND THAN SEE MY MOM MAKE A JOKE TO MAKE ME LAUGH SHE DOES THAT ON PERPISE THOUGH TO GET MY MIND OFF THE PAIN AND FOCUS ON THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE.
