EASTER MESSAGE Jesus' death on the cross was all about starting over. He died for us and then came to life again three days later. His death and resurrection set the pattern for what our life in God is to look like. When we mess up, God's forgiveness puts the sin to death and begins new life in our heart. It's the Easter story over and over again in our life. Easter is really all about do-overs!So in real life it looks like this:oI accept Christ as my Savior. I thank Him for His death on the cross for me, and I ask Him to be the leader of my life.oWhen I mishandle a situation with my kids, I tell God I'm sorry. I accept His forgiveness and walk in His grace. Then I apologize to my kids, and I start over.oWhen I speak and wronged my friend, I apologize to God and accept His forgiveness. Then, I apologize to my friend who I wronged and walk confidently in my do-over.Here's the best part: the more I apologize and make it right, the more I'm motivated to change. The full do-over happens when I allow God to transform my heart and I stop doing the same sin over and over again.What if this Easter, it was less about the Easter bunny and eggs and more about a new life in Christ? What if we got serious about the do-over's God offers?I think that's a treat that's sweeter than any chocolate filled Easter egg any day!MAY GOD WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE TODAY AND MAY YOU WALK IN HIS WAY. HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.WITH LOVE,Juliet AKA Modela (*_*)
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares ~ Juliet AKA Modela (*_*)THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY. YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND ENJOYABLE EVENING.ALONE AT HOME.
A cowboy walks into a bar in Texas, orders three mugs of Bud and sits in the back room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy,"You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."The cowboy replies,"Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Australia, the other is in Dublin, and I'm in Texas. When we all left home, we promised we'd drink this way to remember the days we drank together. So I drink one for each of my brothers and one for myself."The bartender admits this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn. One day, though, he comes in and orders only two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent.When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says,"I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns and he laughs."Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains."It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church in Sweetwater, and I had to quit drinking. Hasn't affected my brothers though."... LOLIT'S CAMEL'S DAY. YEP, ENJOY HUMPING AWAY ...?Xoxoxo,Juliet AKA Modela (*_*)
There is an old Jewish folktale about a cat that stole a cheese from a market. A dog saw the robbery and wanted some for himself, so he and the cat fought; but there was no victor. They decided to get the fox to settle their quarrel. The fox proposed they simply divide the cheese. The dog and cat agreed. After the fox divided the cheese in half, the dog protested that his portion was smaller. The cat agreed, and the fox bit off some of the cat's share. The cat then protested that his portion was now too small. The fox agreed and took a bite from the dog's portion. This squabbling went on so long that eventually the fox had eaten all the cheese.MORAL LESSON: Envy and greed will cost you everything.THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY. YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!Xoxoxo,Juliet AKA Modela (*_*)
Keith,The seasons are in transition and spring is in the air. Spring slides in on her gentle breezes and allows mother earth to wake up and come alive after its long lingering dream of wintery rest. All of our senses start to tingle, noses start to drip, the birds take flight in the beautiful blue skies, the earth sprouts forth its sleepy seeds of growth, and we have thoughts of peace and gratitude inside that our winter retreat has ended. Spring has sprung and our minds become alive once more to enjoy the beautiful world around us. Smile and truly enjoy the day ~ Juliet AKA Modela (*_*)WELCOME SPRING!JULIET IN RAINBOW SPRING COLOR.
Keith,There are many good reasons for drinking, one has just entered my head. If a man doesn't drink when he's living, how in the hell can he drink when he's dead? ...LOL - ~ Juliet AKA Modela (*_*)HAPPY ST. PADDY'S TO ONE AND ALL. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T GET PULLED OVER TOMORROW. DRIVE SAFE AND SOBER.

.When you stop believing in love because of a broken heart, it's often hard to start over without having remnants from the past.
