Good Morning..
It is said..

"Watch your thoughts for they become words.

Watch your words for they become actions.

Watch your actions for they become habits.

Watch your habits for they become your character.

And watch your character for it becomes your destiny."

It may not be easy to form  good habits and make positive changes in life.

+Getting up early, 
+having a disciplined quiet time with God, 
+reading God's Word and meditating on it
+spending quality time with family,
+start exercising, walking
+eating right, 
+staying fit, 
+losing weight 
+improving posture
+brushing teeth in the morning, at bed time, after-food(taught in school as kids but forget as we grow up)
+honoring elders and parents(it is God's commandment)
+obedience (it is better than sacrifice)
+speaking the truth at all times for all thing..(knowing to tell a lie is SIN)
+Reading (forgotten habit)
+speaking and walking with grace and honor
+desiring for the fruit of the Spirit to be made whole in us.. 
+Being organised and keeping things in order..

+stop eating junk food, watching junk stuff and listening to junk music,
+ quit smoking and alcohol,
+stop drinking aerated drinks,
May be difficult to begin but not impossible..
Small changes like making a choice to speak to God first as we begin our day, and speaking to Him the last...and taking to Him at all times about all thing, eating healthy, staying fit, obeying God's Word, will make a big difference in our life!
We don't need an expert or designers help change a room from a mess to a masterpiece!  A bit of cleaning, dusting, wiping, folding things, putting things in order, arranging will do wonders!

 + May we be motivated to stay fit (spiritually an physically)

 + May we create goals, stay calm and press on...to our goal...

1 Timothy 4:7, ".....and exercise yourself toward godliness."
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers."
1 Thessalonians 5: 23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

May the Lord help us make positive changes that helps our spirit soul, body. It is said, "It takes 21 days to make or break a habit."
Let us take action and get started now. Let us create a 21 day challenge to create good habits and break bad one, pray and seek God's help to keep to it, and get going...
Remember, it is said "Winners never quit and quitters never win."
Have a blessed day...

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.”

A Godly Mother's Greatest Reward...

 You know what is a Godly mother's greatest reward?
(Read the quote below)
This would definitely be my greatest Reward!
And I will say that to my mom...!
This is from the 'Signs of the times' Nov 3rd 1881
Mother's greatest Reward
  When at the Judgement seat the books shall be opened; when the "well done" of The Great Judge is pronounced, and the crown of immortal glory is placed upon the brow of the victor, many will raise their crowns in the sight of the assembled universe and pointing to their mother say, " She made me all I am through the grace of God. Her instructions, her prayers have lead me to my eternal Salvation."
This would be that mother's greatest reward.
Be blessed,
Happy Mother's day to all you precious moms here today and everyday!

Moms and dads are special not just on one day...:)

It's lovely to see them being pampered by cards, the flowers, special lunch/dinner with their son/daughter.
 My mom was so...excited when we wished her. Wish I was there close by to give her some special surprise!
How blessed we are!
 But thinking of the many moms and dads who have gone to the grave broken hearted, because of disrespect and lack of honor shown to them and without once having heard their child say a "I love you", "I thank you" or share a meal with them or see them do even small acts of kindness, to make them feel loved, appreciated, honored.
 How many times our moms tears, sighs, pain goes unnoticed though our tears and pains have broken their hearts. Sometimes their tender love, care and concern for us has been returned by a cold indifference.
 Godly parents are concerned about the sous of their children but there are children dispise their counsel and stubbornly follow their rebellious path and still parents don't stop praying.
 May we those who still have our mom/dads/ or both parents around, always love and honor them.
These are days when God is turning the hearts of parents to children and children to parents
(Malachi 4:6)
May God change hearts, bind, heal restore this beautiful relationship...!
Be Blessed,

Wikipedia describes "A homemaker" as a person whose main job is to take care of his or her own family home and children. Traditionally, the job of homemaker is done by women and the job of provider is done by men, but both men and women can be providers and homemakers."

In the last few days I have been in converstaion with some 'Homemakers'. 
And I realised a few of them felt 'unworthy', 'unappreciated', 'used and abused' about what they do, because some tend to look down on a woman who chooses to work as a full-time homemaker. Some think only the "uneducated" and "jobless" will really choose to stay at home.
I hope people who look down on stay at home moms will understand that a "full time homemaker" is also doing an honorable job!  
I am not an accidental full time homemaker but loved to be one and chose to be one. It is not an easy job always but I wouldn't trade it for a second.
But I am also so...in awe of those who manage a career out and also is a homemaker!
God appreciates all we do as a woman, indoors or out.
"A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:31)
This I write just to write to those who are at home the whole day taking care of it.
Homemaking is sure an honorable profession.
Every homemaker may not have a full-time or part-time maid, some may not have even a washing machine, dishwasher or microwave to assist them and make work a bit easy but still it is a job of great worth!

Life of a homemaker may not be easy as a walk on a bed of roses. As  most of our lives is spent  pressing on, believing, holding on in faith, praying, paying bills, making beds, fixing breakfast and lunch, helping kids with home work, wiping their tears, crying with them etc. 

And many hours during the day we may be all alone and may feel no one really cares. 
So much of what  homemakers go unrecognized. The beds made every morning, toilets scrubbed, every meal made, other chores around home, errands run to the market, dust, sweep, clean etc may not necessarily get noticed. 
Seeing that our family members take their medications, vitamins, eat the right food, or stop them from eating stuff that is not good for them ensures their good health but they may fail to see our heart of concern.

 But today it is good to remind ourselves that God is with us, watching over us, so consider it all joy that we are never alone at home. Let us do all we do as unto Him and not unto man.
 Ephesians 6: 7 "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, 8 because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free."
So let us do what we do with all our heart.
Colossians 3:23, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,"

A stay at home mom has a lot of rewarding moments too! Homemaker who handles a lot of household responsibilities may not be paid for their service but it is a greatly rewarding job as it is a joy to see kids grow, being there to see them take their first step, lift them when they fall, their hug when you have a tear in your eyes and so many such priceless moments.
 And we get a lot of time to persue our hobbies (writing/stitching/knitting/painting/gardening or whatever it may be), get time to be alone with our Lord in between our chores and can do so much more.
So "Homemakers" are doing a great job too!
Be blessed...
A "Full time" homemaker,
