Do you know what Love is?

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

God is so GOOD! Hallelujah Praise GOD thank you JESUS!

Do you know? Do you know what love is?

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 1 Corinthians 13:4

There are many forms of Love, that we relate to. But I believe one of the most important Love is to love yourself. Truly…

To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” Mark 12:33

Well I had a great lesson in Love, by my lovely baby sister who is on the left. She’s so beautiful and at times she doesn’t know it. But my sister with the little or much that she has, always goes out of her way to cheer a friend up. She always remembers how someone has been there for her and she’s just awesome.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Corinthians 13:5

So she comes up, out of the blue mind you, with a gift to surprise her friend who is following her dreams in upstate NY where she plays College ball. I think also her friend, our friend 🙂  is such an inspiration and is also amazing.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 1 Corinthians 13:6

You know, I believe if it wasn’t for Jesus and the love he has given us well we’d be lost. Jesus gives us the freedom to truly love not only others but ourselves making it possible to love others in a unique way. With no barriers or fear. Love, allows us to fully be ourselves no matter what the consequences because…

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1 John 4:18

I don’t know if you have noticed, but in every step you take to better yourself, or to do good in some way shape or form there is always someone or something trying to hold you back or saying that ‘you can’t’. And without LOVE…

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:7

…That never loses faith and believes, than you may become nothing more than a slave to what is around you.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

And if this STRENGTH, This love is not inside you…Than what do you have?

If you crumble under the pressure of what you can and cannot do than is that truly loving yourself?

Or would it be Pushing the limits and truly finding out for yourself who you are in Christ, who you are in Love? Whether it is Love of a Sport or dream, Loving a Love one, showing Love to a friend or someone who has hurt you, finding out what Love truly means without letting the pressure of the box that people may try to put you in, why not just allow yourself to be freed by love.

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (- Jesus ) John 13:35

To the recipient of this Care package:

Love is the greatest gift you HAVE. Love comes from within yourself before it can ever be seen. There are many trials in life, and many obstacles that come in many forms including at times your own family and even friends (But not Baby and I hehe 😀 ),but take heart and know that the greatest power is inside you when you have JESUS in your heart, when you have LOVE in your heart. As long as you follow your heart doing the right thing and believing, having faith because all things are possible with GOD (Matthew 19:26). Nothing can stand in your way to living a rich life full of abundance and LOVE. Be strong & courageous.

This Month… March 2013!

 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. Isaiah 35:2 photo SpringColorPalette_zps2adb3562.jpg

It’s a new year it’s a new Month and I’m just trying to catch up with myself. I love that GOD never stresses, never worries. And when I find myself rushing I just say to myself “I’m on God’s perfect Timing”.

Lately I’ve really been trying to find my voice. Change, as changes come and do my best to honor Jesus, to honor God. I’ve decided that This month, for me is a month of reflection. Just as Spring is coming closer and closer so is, I just know it, My Revelation!

There’s somethings that no one can take away from you. I’m thankful to God for these things such as, Revelation, knowing in your heart how Jesus has saved you, Knowing with out a doubt! Seriously, when you receive a life altering, life changing revelation it’s always for the better. Revelation surely comes from God.. Well that’s what I believe 🙂

Everything in Spring is coming ALIVE! And I know that that’s exactly what I’m doing. That’s exactly what Natural True Beauty is Blooming to, Becoming ALIVE, I can just feel it!

I’m incredibly thankful to Jesus for His sacrifice and how, when He lives in you, how He just causes you to Bloom. How HE takes Ashes and turns it to Beauty!

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3

You know, life is truly an adventure, don’t forget to have fun. But life is precious when walking with Jesus.

Everyone goes through struggle, through change, but the beauty that Jesus offers well, You’re missing out! Your mind changes. WOW!

Hallelujah! Praise GOD thank you JESUS!!!

Hosanna in the Highest!!!

For His Love & Glory,

P.S. I encourage you, take a leap of faith and Soar. Change, Grow and always remember GOD loves you and He has the most AMAZING plans for you.

GOD & the City… Curve Ball

Curve Ball

My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; Proverbs 3:21 -23

Hallelujah! Praise GOD! Thank you JESUS!

Let me tell you the LORD is GOOD! Truly and His mercies truly endure forever! Blessed! Thank you JESUS!

Where do I begin? Lately I feel as though life has definitely thrown me a couple of Curve balls.  Hey, I have a Hubby who is a huge baseball fan and I can’t help but add bits and pieces of baseball here and there 😛 . Seriously, Check out the picture the Hubby posted on Facebook when we announced we were having a baby:

Curveballs! I have chosen the video that you see up there, because it reflects exactly what I’m trying to get at. The illusion of how something can be coming at you one way while it may be falling at a completely different direction!

Sometimes life can be unpredictable with all kinds of situations coming right at us while only having a few seconds to react and lets face it, some have trouble with the curb. But we all have the same opportunity. Hitting a Homer. Oh Yes, you know what I’m taking about. Just having the right situations come at you at the right time making a beautiful melody of HOOOOOMME RUNNNN.

I believe that’s when FAITH  leads us to our victory in those tough situations where we can’t see.

Faith in GOD, because GOD is Love & The Lord truly knows the plans He has for you, just read Jeremiah 29:11.

So what ever you are facing this week face it with the FAITH that GOD will guide you to the right direction. You might just hit it out the Park!

Until Next time, remember:

We live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7

Hosanna in the Highest!!!

For His Love & Glory,

GOD and the City…We’re Having a Baby!!!!!

 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. John 16:21

 photo 529882_547396051948483_1369180115_n_zps9e9371af.jpg

If you are a father to be I’d recommend you go with your wife to her Ultrasound. My husband was full of WOW. He saw His baby’s Heart beating and actually considered the thoughts of “why do I get frustrated at times when GOD is with us“.

Okay, so I’d guess you all have noticed that I hardly have been posting…

I’m sorry about that, Not to make any excuses it’s because, I’m becoming a Mommy to be!

Yes I’m actually PREGGO! Pregnant, A bun is in the oven! I’m currently at 12 weeks!

We are supper excited and truly thankful and humbled to GOD to JESUS. You see for us this is truly a miracle.

Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal. Isaiah 26:4

My husband has never had a child nor I! We actually thought at one point that we couldn’t get Pregnant. And it is truly A miracle to have a blessing Growing inside you. I find it so fitting to go through what is usually called “Morning sickness” and I find it an honor and a pleasure to go through it because I know the blessing behind it.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12

Although I did worry in the beginning (I’m only human), when I first became aware of my pregnancy and was incredibly tired among other things! But it was mostly because I want to do my best with what GOD has given me. I’ve been, admittedly laying on the couch. The only movements I’ve made is waking up, eating and clicking the remote. BUT, I have walked the park a few times, Yay me! I know. I know. There was actually a moment I cried because I just couldn’t do anything. It’s been a while since I’ve actually surfed the web which I actually did without any nausea yesterday! AWESOME. I’m also looking forward to organizing a new collection that I had begun working on before I became tremendously tired. LORD willing I will keep you all in the Loop.

Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, Philippians 3:13

What have I learned? That Our Lord and Savior, GOD, Jesus. HE truly sustains. Have I cried? Yes, Lots of times. I’ve been emotional Among other things. My husband would probably explain it a bit differently. He’s such a God sent. Pray for us. 🙂 But I’ve learned sometimes it’s okay to just accept what you are feeling. In a nut shell, I know what you’re going through and it’s okay, its okay to feel. We all go through change, struggles and fights. And I’ve learned it’s easier to just say to your self. It’s okay. It’s okay to cry. To feel angry and if you feel sad, yea maybe you’re sad for that situation or circumstances and it’s okay to move on and count your blessings during those moments. I’ve also learned, when I accept these emotions they go away on their own. I’m not only accepting them but I just cast them on to JESUS. Am I making sense?

Today, wow I’m feeling so much better! I’m moving forward and clinging always to GOD’s Powerful AMAZING Word! One thing that Has truly Helped me is repeating GOD’s word whenever a negative thought has crossed my mind. WORKS AMAZINGLY!!! Not only have I had physical battles but mental as well. But it’s all worth it! HALLELUJAH!!!

I now see that that’s how we need to view each obstacle, each hardship and see it as an opportunity to GROW, Change, FLY!

I also wanted to leave you all with this thought:

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Until Next time!! GOD Bless and Stay Engaged! GOD Loves you!!!!

You are Blessed and Highly Favored! Amen!

Hosanna in the Highest!!!

For His Love & Glory,
