Lose Your Self

The other day I took Jackson out for a long walk through the neighborhood. As we were walking we passed the Calvary Chapel Christian School located near my home. It was the senior classes graduation day. I noticed the theme of the graduation was "Lose Your Self" and the scripture was Mark 8:35. The theme and scripture stayed with me for the rest of the walk and moved me to open my bible to the book of Mark. This message came at the perfect time because I was starting to question and doubt myself.

God sure knows how to answer your prayers and provide a message to confirm that. What I took from the passage and the theme were to let go and let God, hence "lose your self". Allow the Lord to direct your path and he will make a way out of no way. When worries and doubt begin to bring you down turn it over to the Lord and trust!!! This verse encouraged me to press on despite the circumstances and allow the Lord to lead the way... Hopefully it helped you also...

All White Now!!!

OMGOSH!!!  So, it literally took me one month to complete this post. I took these pictures in anticipation of participating in a Blogger's Challenge - Blogger's Do It Better in White. I'm way late, they have had several new challenges since then, but I figure its better late than never. I was experiencing difficulty with my wireless Internet connection for weeks... I tried everything I knew to resolve the issue, however I was unsuccessful. I had just about given up on my Dell Studio when I located the user manual. To my surprise, the first page I flipped to provided me with the answer to my dilemma. Somehow the wireless radio was disabled. How did I fail to check this, with the simple press of the F2 button my Internet connection was back up and running. I was so ready to head to the apple store to purchase a Mac book...

Now that I've found the user guide maybe I can figure this video and picture editing thing out to provide you all with better quality post. Any suggestions?

Hey Mama

Mother of Mine

How do I tell you, from this daughter
Oh mother of mine, who couldn't have worked harder
To make my life, as best as could be
How much your loved, for loving me

Things you wanted, so many times
You put aside, to help me and mine
Even when I was growing up
A back you never turned, a door you never shut

How do I tell you, how much this means
Oh mother of mine, who always beams
With a loving heart, with open arms
Caring for all, with all your charms

You made life, so very good
For me you did, all you could
You cared for me, through all bad times
Your loved so much, oh mother of mine

~ Betty Halverson, 2003 ~


Happy Mother's Day!

This To Shall Pass

Top: New York & Co. | Belt: Express | Tights: New York & Co. | Boots: Aldo

1. Stay Positive. You can listen to the cynics and doubters and

believe that success is impossible or you can know that with faith and

an optimistic attitude all things are possible.

2. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement:

My purpose is_______________________.

3. Take a morning walk of gratitude. I call it a “thank you walk.” It

will create a fertile mind ready for success.

4. Instead of being disappointed about where you are think

optimistically about where you are going.

5. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a

college kid with a maxed out charge card.

6. Remember that adversity is not a dead-end but a detour to a better outcome.

7. Focus on learning, loving, growing and serving.

8. Believe that everything happens for a reason and expect good things

to come out of challenging experiences.

9. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues

of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead

invest your energy in the positive present moment.

10. Mentor someone and be mentored by someone.

11. Live with the 3 E's. Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy.

12. Remember there’s no substitute for hard work.

13. Zoom Focus. Each day when you wake up in the morning ask: “What

are the three most important things I need to do today that will help

me create the success I desire?” Then tune out all the distractions

and focus on these actions.

14. Implement thewww.NoComplainingRule.com. Complaining is like

vomiting. Afterwards you feel better but everyone around you feels


15. Read more books than you did in 2010. I happen to know of a few

good ones. :)

16. Get more sleep. You can’t replace sleep with a double latte.

17. Focus on “Get to” vs “Have to.” Each day focus on what you get to

do, not what you have to do. Life is a gift not an obligation.

18. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements:

I am thankful for __________.

Today I accomplished____________.

19. Smile and laugh more. They are natural anti-depressants.

20. Enjoy the ride. You only have one ride through life so make the

most of it and enjoy it.
