I have a new vision in life. My vision of abundance in Christ. The Best Things In Life Are Not Things. They are thoughts, words and actions. I have instilled inside me a new mindset. A feeling of abundance to help get me through the day without feeling poor. I AM RICH. :)
DO NOT OVERWORK TO BE RICH. - PROVERBS 23:4
An old saying says, "The best things in life are free." There's a lot of truth in that. Some people, however, believe that the best things in life are expensive or perhaps elusive. Recently I saw a sign that made me smile and think. It said, "The best things in life are NOT THINGS." What a great way to say it! The value of family, friends, and faith points us to the realisation that what matters most in life is ALL WRAPPED UP IN PEOPLE AND THE LORD. Solomon was well qualified to speak about material things because he "surpassed all kings of the earth in riches and wisdom." (1 Kings 10:23) His advice? " DO NOT OVERWORK TO BE RICH; BECAUSE OF YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, CEASE! WILL YOU SET YOUR EYES ON THAT WHICH IS NOT? For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away like an eagle toward heaven" (Prov. 23:4-5). His recommended course of action was, "APPLY YOUR HEART TO INSTRUCTION, AND YOUR EARS TO WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE......For surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off." (vv.12,18)
The Best Things in LIFE are the eternal riches that come from God's goodness and grace in Jesus Christ. We do not hold them in our hands, but IN OUR HEARTS. - David McCasland. Our greatest riches are the riches we have in Christ.
I have decided to turn to events from the church to look forward to. I have turn towards events from the marketplace to look forward to and to participate. I have turn myself to an abundance mindset to FIGHT DEPRESSION which had stayed with me through the years..... My abundance in Christ and I always go to church to praise God and to worship and to follow His Commandments. How good are you in the eyes of the Lord if you have EVERYTHING, a satisfying job and career, loads of money for shopping spree and enough money to spend when your life is not centered on the LORD??????

Luke 6:28 PRAY FOR THOSE WHO SPITEFULLY USE YOU. On this Mother's Day, 13th May 2012 (Sunday) I pray that God will Bless my spiteful Mother-in-law, so that she may bless my children.......:)
One Sunday morning D.L.Moody entered a house to escort some children to Sunday School. During his visit three men backed him into a corner and threatened him. "Look here," Moody said."Give a fellow a chance to say his prayers, won't you?" The men actually allowed him to call out to God and Moody prayed for them so earnestly that they left the room.
Had I been in Moody's situation I might have called for help or looked for the back door. I'm not sure I would have acted on Jesus' command to His followers :"Pray for those who mistreat you". (Luke 6:28NIV). Praying for the people who treat us with contempt is one way to "do good to those who hate (us)" (v.27). Jesus explained that Christians get no credit for swapping acts of kindness with other "nice" people. He said, "Even sinners do the same" (v.33). However, blessing our persecutors (Rom. 12:14) sets us apart from them and aligns us with the Most High, because God is kind even to wicked people (Luke 6:35).
Today if you feel 'cornered' by someone, seek safety if the situation calls for it, and follow Jesus' teaching : Pray for that person (Luke 23:34). Prayer is your best defence. - Jennifer Benson Schuldt. Returning good for good is human; returning good for evil is divine.
This Sunday 13th May 2012, On MOTHER'S DAY, I would like to PRAY for my mother-in-law that God may prolong her life and bless her so that she may BLESS my children and take care of them. I pray to God to forgive my spitefulness towards her and I pray that God will give me the strength NOT to dwell on the past experiences of HURT and GRIEF. I pray that God will strengthen the hearts of my two children that they may find their freedom just as I have found mine. I pray that my children will excel in their school and their studies will improve that my Mother-in-law will FEED them and wash their school uniforms for them. I pray that God will grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. I pray all these in Jesus' most Precious and Holy Name, AMEN.

My friends for life are my tea cups, my coffe Mug, my kettle boiler, my dishwasher companian, my kitchen floor mop, my precious UMBRELLA and the LORD, my God......!
These are my precious friends in life. Firstly, I had always LOVED my Mug. My Cup of Life. I have always love some good old coffee or tea whenever I am thirsty. This is my MOST constant companian in life : (as below )
This is my MOST LOYAL Friend who always SHELTER me from the RAIN. I had loved the Lord.......
Friends and Coffee - THERE'S NO BETTER WAY TO START YOUR DAY !
Somewhere, there is someone that understands. There is someone who only wants to brighten your day and paint your sky rainbow. There is someone who would let you stand on their shoulders if it meant helping you reach your dreams. Somewhere, there is someone who only wants to make you happy. You just have to find them. My imaginary friend - the LORD is my greatest SOMEONE. What about you?
My husband is just my co-worker, my boss, and I am like his employee. Freedom of sex with your marriage spouse. Juvenile kingdom ! Find someone like the singer Caprice says, "CHI' KARO" - somebody who can pay his bills, someone who can share the burden of the load - help pay BILLS !!!!!!! ( A Career Woman who earns a whole lot of money !!!!!! ) But she has her own burdens too - she has her own needs and her own sorrows and torments - the question is HOW BIG ARE YOU in the eyes of the woman, your wife? Can you be like King Midas, ORDER ORDER and ORDER only or will you be like the house-husband you are, a great giver at the same time, a good helper around the house, not a MALE CHAUVINIST!!!!!!!
KEEP ON THE SEARCH FOR THE MAN OF YOUR DREAMS !
Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
In marriage, it is all about building the HOUSE, raising CHILDREN, paying SCHOOL FEES, house BILLS, and improving your sex-life that is your relationship with your spouse! ACCOUNTS, ACCOUNTS, ACCOUNTS !!!!!!! Bills, bills, bills.....MAINTENANCE. REPAIR. FOOD FOOD FOOD and Clothes at its least !!!!!!!! Your fun is in bed. Your goal is perfection in housekeeping, building up the family, raising your children with skills and intelligence, striving to improve your relationship with your life-partner and TRUSTING THE LORD in little little things that matters MOST !
Luke 11 :2-4
Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom comes,
Give us each day our daily bread,
Forgive us our sins,
For we also forgive everyone who sins against us,
And lead us NOT unto Temptations, O Lord !
