I have recently had to deal with an unexpected change in my life. Did I get upset? Yes? How was all this new news going to affect my life? As soon as I received the news I called my husband whom promptly told me not to worry about it, their loss and now I would have time for other things.
The next day it was still tender news and still a shock. Then all of a sudden I started remembering bills that were upcoming. How was we going to cover them? I started stressing and getting upset. That is when I set down and prayed about it all again. I felt a sudden peace go over me and I knew God had it handled. He always does but sometimes we jump the gun and try to take care of things on our own.
Now a few days later everything is falling into place and I can see how some things are already working. I know we will be fine and I also know God has something in mind for me. Sometimes he has to slam a door closed to get our attention because we were not listening before. Several months ago I felt a strong urge to leave the job but couldn’t bring myself to do it, I kept talking myself out of it. So now God didn’t give me an option, he did it for me.
So if something sudden happens in your life – Remember – God is just getting your attention! He has something far better in mind.
I started out trying to say that one must have honesty in order to have a great relationship but in truth there is more than just honesty. There are several things that make up a great relationship.
Everyone wants that soul-mate, one of a kind, best love ever, fairy tale relationship but unfortunately not everyone wants to put in the effort. It takes both people putting in time and energy. Every relationship needs to start out as friends. Friends will do anything for each other and love each other regardless. When you have a true friendship then honesty, trust, understanding, and communication follow. When couples are friends and communicate then they have the freedom that comes with it because they trust each other to be honest.
The key to honesty is that you are HONEST about everything regardless of what it is. It is better to get the truth out in the open and deal with it as it comes. The most common problem couples face is that they worry about hurting the other person’s feelings, being embarrassed or the most common – what they don’t know won’t hurt them oi- unfortunately it does. This is where communication comes into play. Couples must learn how to sit down and talk to each other about everything regardless of what the issues are.
Good Luck and Best Wishes to a Great Relationship!

Tired of the same thing? unhappy? things not going right in your life?
Remember only you can make a change in your life. You have to be the one to decide that you want a change and GO FOR IT!!
DON’T LET THE HATERS GET YOU DOWN
Hope everyone is having a great day! I would like to take this time to remind you that only you can make the changes in your life and decide if you want to be Happy. You are in control of your life, no one else can do it for you. You must decide what you want out of life and go for it! Remember its the little things that add up to the big things.
Decide what you want and then take small steps or as I like to say – stepping stones to get what you want. If you try to do it all at once then it can become overwhelming, which can cause you to throw the towel in and give up. You must learn to do a little at a time and the more little things you do then the closer to your goal you will get.
Every day is an opportunity to make your life the way you want it to be. Anything is possible when you work toward it, one day at a time. Skip a day, and you lose momentum. Try to do it all at once, and you burn out. Steadily, consistently work, making every day count, and you will reach your goals. Today is a chance to grow – to do a little bit more than you did yesterday, a little bit better, a little bit more effectively. Anyone can do a little more, learn a little more, and grow a little more each day. Soon, with consistent effort, those “little bits” add up to major accomplishments. Is there something you want to change? Today is the day to start changing it. Is there a new customer you want to land? Today is the day to start making it happen. Do you need to lose weight? Today is the day to start doing it. Not next Monday or next month – today. You deserve to reach your goals as soon as possible. Control today and you control your life.

For as he think in his heart, so is he
We all need words of encouragement from time to time. There are so many days that we ask ourselves “Why me?”, “How much more?” and we wonder “What else?”. It feels like we are constantly butting our heads with someone or we keep meeting a brick wall. It is times like this that really makes us wonder if we should stop and give up or should we keep trying, we get so tired of making decisions and having to fight for everything we have or do. We keep going because in the end it is all worth it.
I have had many ups and downs in my life and have had people question me on it and how I do it. Let me tell you – anything worth doing – isn’t easy. I have learned something that I fondly call my stepping stones of life. Hence, the name of my blog. I have learned that if we just take one stepping stone at a time then we can accomplish more and it just gets easier and the number one thing is to trust in God.
I know that none of this comes easy but I hope that with inspirational and encouraging words and understanding that some of the things that I share with you will help you through your most trying and difficult times. Please feel free to give feedback and ask questions.
May GOD Bless YOU!
And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appoined season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faith.
