My Brother In Town

My brother arrived Thursday to spend the weekend with my mother and I.

The weather isn’t good for the weekend expecting to rain the whole time. It is January after all.

So we can say January’s purpose is to rain. LOL

My brother figured coming would be a good Christmas present for mom. At her age, we can’t be sure how much longer she will be around. She will be one hundred years old this year.

He will be back again in July with his family along with my sister and her two kids as well for a 100th birthday party. Also, we have cousins planning on attending as well.

Mom is feeling better and with my brother here hoping to improve on it. Anyway, enjoy your weekend. May you be blessed.

Purpose Is

Our purpose is what God has defined for us. It isn’t just handed to us we have to agree with God. He has given us free will to live our life purpose in the way he indeed.

Remember more than anything else we live a better life when living in our purpose.

Our Life

We only have one life to live so important to live it to the fullest though it isn’t easy.

We must define what our life is. Actually God defines our life we just need to agree with it. Not an easy task for sure.

Look At

I figured that I would break up the name of the blog and the meaning we should have.

Look at means there is something we should look for.

In this case, we are looking at our life purpose. Something we should look forward to every day.

I know that I certainly look at my purpose every single day. We should be excited every day when we get up. 

It doesn't mean life is going to be roses every day but it certainly better than the alternative. Amen!

Take A Break

I am sure I have mentioned before it is always good to take a break when life is being hard or even if it isn’t.

We can get burned out and it would be ashamed to stop our life purpose if we are.

Yes people may need our help at times; however, we shouldn’t help so much that we no longer can help.

Often people think we should be available at any time or better said all the time.

Our family comes first after time with God. In fact, the good thing would ask God for his strength.

Remember Moses his father-in-law gave him good advice to get help. He couldn’t give justice to everyone. Amen!

Inspire Us

Though we are created for a purpose unique to us we can look to others to inspire us.

These people who inspire can be our parents, a sibling, a relative, a classmate, a friend or someone in the public eye.

The persons that inspire us don’t even have to have the same gifts or talents we have just the way they live their lives.

Think of being a humble person. He inspires many without realizing it. This kind of person we should be. Amen!

Keeping Everything Uncomplicated

I figure the important thing here is to keep things uncomplicated. Your idea of life purpose can be totally different than mine which is fine.

My idea is God has a purpose for each one of us and it is unique to us as well. We may have a different idea of how that works out but that is how I think.

None of us are fully doing our life purpose but I hope to be close. There are circumstances and people who may get in our way for us to do so. It is ok if you haven’t done your purpose yet. You can begin today no matter what the past has been like.

This is my major encouragement today is a new day forget about yesterday and don’t look toward tomorrow let it be about today. Your purpose tomorrow might be different than today which is OK as well. Just be open to today. We have no idea what tomorrow will bring anyway. Actually, today is an open book as well so just see what happens today.

Having An Impact

The snow here this week made me think of having an impact. The weather can change things drastically in our lives so can other things.

Our purpose should impact others' lives. In fact, it should impact ours as well.

How it impacts depends on us and how seriously we take our purpose.

We may not know for years what our purpose will impact others. This is especially true for those who may have moved away then we see them again years later. 

The important thing have an impact whether small or large. Amen!

Let It Snow

Here in Western Washington, we got snow on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

How much snow depended on where you live. Where I live we didn’t a lot of snow. What we got was so beautiful though.

North of Seattle heading to the Canadian border had a lot more snow. Some of the schools were closed for the snow.

Our lives are like snow circumstances that happen to some harsher than others.  It isn’t because God loves us more or less than someone else it just happens. Like snow, it can land in one place and not another.

It doesn’t sound fair what happens to some while not others. We have to have faith things will turn outright. Amen!

Trust Is Earned

There are those who think we should trust them.  It would be nice, however, there are those trying to scam us with nice and persuasive words.

Trust is something that is earned and that takes time to do so. It may even take years to do so.

Of course, I would like to trust everyone; however, I have been taken advantage of before so it takes longer to trust.

Even friends and family have to earn trust. I am sure everyone remembers the trouble as a youth with their classmates. It took time to trust them too.

So remember if you are a mentor or a teacher those you deal with may take time to trust you. If they trust you right away I am sure it has to do with those that know you have told them about you. They trust those people when given a good report.

Don’t be upset if someone is doesn’t trust you yet I am sure it is because they don’t know you yet.

Encouraging Vs Preaching

When someone is preaching they can be encouraging. I just don’t want to sound like I am preaching here at least most of the time. I just hope you feel that I am preaching most of the time.

For me encouraging is my message to all of you no matter the form it feels like. Encouraging can seem harsh at times especially when speaking the truth. The important thing is not to sound condemning.

So there is conviction versus condemning. They may sound similar but they are not the same. Conviction is speaking the truth in love while condemning has no love in it. A person could use the same words in either circumstance but you know it is the truth when you feel convicted and not condemning.

Until next time have yourself a wonderful day. I hope this was encouragement for you.

Our Days Are Short

I don’t consider myself old yet; though a hundred years ago or less many people didn’t live as long as I have.

Recently more of my classmates have been passing away. It makes me think how much we have to do with our purpose with little time to do it with.

Every day we need to make a difference in someone’s life. Let them know that someone does care. We won’t be here for very much longer.

Putting A Smile On

When it comes to our purpose putting a smile on is a good idea too.

We can be so effective if we are seen with a smile. Others will think 
we are genuine.

It doesn’t mean we can’t be effective without a smile; however, our 
day will be better too.
