Funny Friday: Speeding Motorist

Happy Friday, Friends! 😁 I hope you’re day is going beautifully. May God continue to bless each and every one of you. Please enjoy today’s, Funny Friday and stay blessed!

Speeding Motorist

Late one night this guy is speeding down the empty road. A cop sees him go flying past so chases him and pulls him over. The cop goes up to the car and when the man rolls down the window, he asks, “Are you aware of how fast you were going, sir?”

The man replies, “Yes I am. I’m trying to escape a robbery I got involved in.”

The cop looks at him disbelievingly and asks him, “Were you the one being robbed, sir?”

The man casually replies, “Oh no, I was the one who committed the robbery. I was escaping.”

The cop is shocked and surprised that the man has admitted this so freely. He says, “So you’re telling me you were speeding…AND committed a robbery?”

“Oh yes,” replies the man calmly. “I have all the loot in the back.”

The cop is now starting to get angry and says, “Sir, I’m afraid you have to come with me” as he reaches into the window to take the car keys out of the ignition.

The man shouts, “Don’t do that! I’m afraid that you’ll find the gun in my glove compartment!” At this the cop pulls his hand out of the window and says, “Wait here” as he returns to his car and calls for backup.

Soon there are cars, cops and helicopters all over, everywhere you look. The man is quickly dragged out of his car, handcuffed and taken towards a cop car. However, just before he is put in the car and taken away a cop walks up to him and says, while pointing at the cop that pulled him over, “Sir, this officer tells us that you had committed a robbery, had stolen loot in the trunk of your car, and had a loaded gun in your glove compartment. However, we didn’t find any of these things in your car.”

The man replies, “Yeah, and I bet that liar said I was speeding too!”

Music is Life

Hey fellow bloggers!

The last few days have been extremely busy. First, I was hit with an unexpected Lupus flare (which slowed down my “to do” list). Secondly, we’ve been very busy getting prepared for an upcoming family trip to Disney World. I’m super excited because this is really a dream come true for my family. I think my husband and I are more excited than our children.

Just to give you a visual. My husband and I reactions when we officially knew we were going:

What I thought my kids’ reaction was going to be:

Their actual reaction:

Honestly, I think they won’t believe it until they see it. We’ve had to cancel family trips in the past due to my illness or finances and I know how disappointed they were back then. So, I think they are holding their excitement. I do see, the closer we get to the leave date and the more we pack, the more excited they become.

Anyway, since I haven’t had that much time to put into blogging (hence the reason why I didn’t post yesterday), I wanted to share with you a very inspiring cover sang by one of our fellow bloggers, Haley with Red Letters Blog. I love listening to her while I blog. Her angelic voice is soothing, allowing inspiration to flow easily through my mind and spirit. I would recommend giving her a visit and a listen. Below is one of my favorite covers that she has done. You can also find her on YouTube, just click the video below.


There is so much inspirational music that I listen to on YouTube. Some you may have heard and some are hidden gems (like above). Starting now, I will be sharing that list. I believe that music is vital to the survival of humanity and without it, we would become, even more, emotionally disconnected…in my opinion.

So take a listen and have a wonderful rest of your evening (early morning to my friends overseas). Stay Blessed!

Fuel for Thoughts: Monday Motivation

Happy Monday Friends!

I want you to know that right now, your struggle is only temporary. I mentioned in my post yesterday Seeking God Part 2 that your circumstances aren’t designed to hurt you, but to make you stronger. If we avoid our problems, then we will be missing out on a chance to become a better “us”.

Allow your struggles to teach you, not hinder you. Allow them to mold you so in the future you become to better equipped to deal with any of life’s challenges.

It’s ok to feel defeated, but that is when you pick yourself up by your bootstraps and push forward. Don’t live in defeat. Don’t allow defeat to become apart of you. Acknowledge it, pray on it, and give it God. Stay faithful to his will and the Lord will provide you with everything that you need.

Have a wonderful Monday, my friends. I pray your day is as beautiful as you are.

Seeking God Part 2

Good Day Fellow Bloggers,

I hope each of you had a wonderful weekend. My weekend went well. I was able to get shopping done for an upcoming family vacation. And…I didn’t get angry with my kids, which is a huge improvement. Anger has been a difficult hurdle to cross, but with Gods love, I am able to push forward and overcome it. In the near future, I want to share with you guys techniques that I have learned to control my anger. 

Anyway, today I wanted to speak more about a blog post that I started talking about my journey to seeking God, per his request. To catch up, please read Seeking God to get the full story of why I started this particular journey. I shared that my purpose in Christ, right now, is to know him intimately. Through prayer and elder guidance, it is clear that my mission is to simply, get to know him. The more to I study my bible, the more his answers become so clear.

It’s funny because I’ve been a Christian for 21 years, but this is the first time since being saved that I have actively sought out having a relationship with God. It now seems that the blinders have been taken off. So as a blogger, I feel it would be irresponsible of me not to document this season of my life. I mean, it’s the reason why I started blogging in the first place. I  love each and every one of you, but blogging started because of my Father and it’s running on His Spirit, alone. If I trusted blogging to myself, I probably wouldn’t get it done. Since I know this is what I’m called to do, then I shall obey. Plus, I would be a terrible person if I didn’t admit that I absolutely love it and it shows how gracious God is. He chose blogging to be my outlet, something I never thought I would become. I’m basketing in the glory of knowing I am on the right track to becoming his tapestry.

I’m rambling, so let’s get to the point.

I’m surprised you guys deal with it. Hehe 🙂 Today, I want to talk about what I have recently learned on my journey to seek God. (I said that already, oh well, too late to delete it.) Sometimes, I feel so burdened by my responsibility, followed by guilt that I am unable to “fulfill” my duties as a wife and a mother. There are days where I am so mentally drained, I am unable to function. And other days, I am so physically drained, I am unable to function. And there are those days that I am so emotionally drained…well, you get the drift. I have wasted a lot of time trying to get through this by myself. My husband will yell at me to “put the laundry basket down, I got it!” or “save your energy and get some rest.” There is so much that needs to be done, and pridefully, I love providing for my family. I feel that I’ve done my due diligence when I cook dinner or fold laundry. You know, mom stuff. Then, it becomes too much and my body will begin craving a comfortable sitting or a heating pad.

On those days that we are soooo mentally, physically, and emotionally drained, we are to look to God because He will ease all of our burdens. God knows our limitations and breaking points. When we feel alone and burdened by our daily responsibilities, we should pour out our hearts to him and trust him to provide relief.

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:19)

There is no limit to his power and what he can provide. The Lord will never fail us, nor forsake us. It may sound cliche and I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times before, God will never give you anything you are unable to handle. Plus, if you are unable to handle it, he will handle it for you. 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Cor. 12:9)

Whatever storm you are going through, just know it is supposed to make you grow. It is supposed to make you stronger. Your storms are not meant to break you, but to build you. Don’t allow the enemy to control you, trick you into thinking you are going through alone. You are not alone!

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” (Mt. 21:22)

Learning this during my journey has helped me immensely. I finally don’t feel like I’m drowning anymore. You can read all about that here Living with Depression. I pray that you all have a wonderful rest of your Sunday (or a beautiful start to your Monday for some of my friends in a different country). 

Lord, I pray for whoever is reading this, that you give them strength to continue their fight, but find peace in knowing that you are there to carry the burdens. Lord, bless them and comfort them. Allow them to feel your presence. Grant them comfort in their mind and in their hearts. Stay Blessed!

Lord, help me remember that no matter what happens, nothing is going to happen to me today that you and I cannot handle. -Unknown
