Letter to God # 3

Hi God!!!!

As you know I just dropped off my hubby at the airport to spend time with his family.  I know you knew he so much needed this, because you provided for us to allow him to go....  I know you will watch over him and keep him safe, and bring him back home to us when it is time...

This morning I was surprised to be feeling ok for a moment...  this stuff seems to sneak up on you and give you moments,  so for this I thank you.  I then was reading facebook and a old friend of mine was writing about being a ms potato head...  and it is so true...  if we would think of ourselves more like a ms potato head ( no clothes to worry about, no stress on looks, only hair, eyes and lips) and as her sister said we can put all our spare parts in our butt...  so no worries about the extra junk in our trunk.   If we looked at life a little more like this.....  I think women and young girls would not so much stress on this stuff and be able to focus on you more....  So I hope that people read between the lines of her funny update...  and see that she really even if she does not know it is sending out a profound message to all....

Next a family member Sharon posted the most awesome update.  I told her I was going to use it, so here it goes:

  Lets Stop
telling God how big our problems are & start telling ur problems how big GOD

This was the best update to see today.....   so God I am letting my nerve condition and all the issues that my body is having that they need to watch out because my GOD is bigger than this!!!  He has a plan for me and there is nothing that can stop that!!  Thanks Sharon for this message today..... 

God I ask you to keep my friends and family close to you today....  let them open there hearts and let you fill them up....  My prayer is that each one of them will find a peace today that will just make them smile out of no where.  Maybe it is a hectic day at work, maybe a loved one is sick or themselves...  thru it all...  please give peace to them for a moment to be able to see you are such a great and wonderful God whom loves us very much...

Please watch over my husband on his trip and keep him safe..

Thanks for being here once again for me  God as usual....  In Jesus name Amen...

Letter to God #2

Hi God it is me Tina,

I have had one of those days that I know you already saw. :o)  But with the day I have had I want to take today to write for someone else.

Stacey -  God, you know the trials and tribulations with Cancer that Stacy is going thru.  She never asks much of any of us and has the strength that you would as her father be proud.  She is not a selfish person at all, she has lost all her hair in this battle and all she asks for right this very minute is her skinny arm back and a small vacation with her family where it is sunny and warm.  I ask you Lord to keep Stacey and I ask that you give her back her skinny arm and that you could provide some small vacation for her and her family.

I sat and complained most of my day today, yelled at the car payment person on the phone and burned all my chicken on the grill, I even almost did not realize how great it was to be told I was loved today.!!  I thought I was going to go on here and tell all about what I needed and then God sent me to Stacey's small but huge one line update.  And that little update made me take all of my days pressures, pains, and angers and set them aside.  

God please read my letter 2 and bless Stacey and all those whom need just the little things right now...  I hope that if my letter is read by anyone today that it does what you did for me today....  made me stop and re think " was it really that bad today"?  And to search your heart and give a prayer to someone else instead, because yours was already answered when you figured out your day just was not that bad. 

I will see you tomorrow Lord...  In Jesus name Amen.

Letter To God #1

Today's letter is a Thank you for a blessing in disguise......

God thank you for the wonderful weekend with my family. You brought smiles to my family this weekend and it was just what we needed.  I sat at a baseball game today and was surrounded by two new friends Pati and Kari.... and my son Jerad.  He made us laugh all day today with his witty and warm heart that you gave him.  And for a moment  I sat back and just examined my surroundings...  this is what I saw and heard....  I heard the sound of my younger son Aundre laughing and a huge smile on his face...  which has been so missed, I looked over at my husband coaching and he was singing and dancing.....  The kids were playing baseball and having fun, the sky was blue, sun was warm.  I took it all in and realized the blessing that you have given me today......  If we learn to sit back and look at our surroundings for a moment....  you will be surprised you may see your blessings..

Please read my letter and send a wonderful laughter to fill up all of my friends and family and let them take a moment and just look at their surroundings that you may show them your blessings today.
