Are you making a POSITIVE difference with your life today?

Are you making a POSITIVE difference with your life that God has entrusted to you right now, today, this day in history for the generations to come?

This was the message behind an all women's conference at this weekend where Holly Wagner spoke to hundreds of women in our local area.  She was awesome and her message was direct and to the point.  Her message really got me thinking about am I all I can be today and everyday. 

I love how Milestone Church honors women and single moms.  Their men served the women all weekend and valeted our cars. I must say it is a nice change of pace and when you leave or at least in my case, I felt loved, cherished and appreciated more than I did upon being there.  Thank you!  For the challenges have been many but so worth it.

I am expecting bigger things today.  My life is getting back on track and my only prayer for me today is that when I finish the race that my Heavenly Father will say good job my child.  I hope God will use me today to show someone, anyone that He loves them and that people really do care. Do you know that I would love to write a book about everyday people that I encounter and how they are making a difference in my life and the world around them.  That everyone is significant and has a story.  I used to love that show Sixth Sense because I do believe that everyone is placed in our paths and worlds for a reason and that we do, say or how we act does make a difference today and in this moment!  It  is normally how we act in times of challenges that our hearts are revealed because isn't it much easier to be kind when all is good?  All of this was what Holly spoke about and I am so thankful that a friend purchased a ticket for me to go.  Thank you!

Here is a picture of us at Summer Splash on Friday night to include Bonnie, Elizabeth and moi.  Love it and being in the house of God where good things are happening all the time because God is good.

If you want to laugh today you can visit youtube and see some spoofs our church did this weekend on swagger wagon and anjela johnson (bon qui qui) which I had no knowledge of...can I just say I had tears streaming from laughing at our volunteers who put on these skits.  No need to go to a comedy show when you have you tube and so many people bringing us fun and comedy here.  Technology can be wonderful if used appropiately.  It was Elizabeth's 35 birthday too, so happy birthday friend.  So grateful our paths have crossed and that I have a new friend!  

I will leave you with this thought today....if you knew that today was your last day would you leave this world a happy person and would you have made a difference in the KINGDOM of GOD?  Would you have done all that you wanted in this lifetime and would your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, church fammily and anyone that is in your life know that you love and cherish them?  Have you made peace and forgiven those who have wronged you as Jesus has done with us?  Is there more you can do because you have been given another day to show someone that they are loved and cared about in a way that touches their heart and life?  Is this too much to think about or will you make a decision to RISE up to the challenge today?

I hope I encourage you to want to make a difference not only in our own homes with our own families but with others that God has placed in our paths and lives today.  If you know of anyone who is actually doing this everyday with a cause or just because he or she makes this a part of their day please come back and share their story.  Make it a great Monday and know that you are loved so much just the way you are today!!
