I absolutely LOVE dogs. I had to share.

I AM LaCrease (( I don’t have to do anything else))
Growing up my parents always took me and my 3 siblings to Church. While my friends were outside playing, for some reason I enjoyed staying in the house. I loved to read books and magazines. But It was something about Jesus that made me want to know him better. Know him for myself. So, I started reading the Bible.
It was exciting getting to know the personality and Character of God. One day I came across the Scripture that read
“The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”
I was HORRIFIED!
I had never heard anyone of my friends talk back to their parents or even get mad at them in this way of the bible. We sure didn’t do it in my house. So, when I read it, it took me back because if those days were coming……. it wasn’t looking good for us. In my 14 year old mind, I couldn’t see how those days would come to pass. I remember God speaking to me saying, keep on living, you’ll see. Even though I believed it with all my heart, I kept saying, I love my mother and my father, who in their right minds would go against them.
I’m 52 years old, and Father God in the NAME OF JESUS. I have seen and heard it more times in my life than I care to mention. It saddens me. Don’t they know that their days on earth will be cut short? God gave us all parents or guardians for a reason, they are not to be disrespected. We are to love and cherish them. Even if we don’t agree with them all the time. I remember getting smart a time or two growing up, but the back hand smack was on my lips before I can get the last word out. ** Laughing**. There have been times when I didn’t agree with my parents even as a grown woman, but that does not warrant disrespect.
My daughter saw how I talked to and treated my parents. My daughter is 33 years and and she has never talked back to me. I RESPECT her, and she RESPECTS ME. Thank you Lord for the teachings in the Bible.
I’ll be so happy when this virus pass. I’ve had many different emotions about my life. This thing have me thinking if I want to stay at my current job. I’m off right now because of everything that’s going on, and its causing me to wonder if I even want to go back. This time off, is really good for me and I hope others are having life changing thoughts as well. Even if its not about a job, it could be spending more time with family, moving to another city, putting money up for times such as these, starting a business. I’m starting to feel good about my future and where I need and want to be, mentally, physically and especially Spiritually.
These last few days have left me crying and feeling depressed. At some point in the night, I had to stop and think… wait a minute…. God is in control. He’s the boss and plant manager of my life. This too shall pass. The bible didn’t say, this too shall pass, except the Coronavirus. I had to really think about that. Things are going just as God approved of them to go and there is nothing we can do, but to wait it out, pray several times a day for Peace, People and yes our President.
Once I/you come to the conclusion that God is in control, you’ll start to see things in a different light, his light, and for this, I can see again.
I never knew in a million years that I would see days like this. A virus so out cold and deadly that it has the whole world on lock down. There is so much to do during this time with all of the technology these days. I was on Messenger today with my brother, mom, and sister, where we can see each other. You can’t beat that! My mother has a iPad, so I can see her on my iPhone and iPads for our one on ones.
These days remind me of the days of Noah. As he was building an ark, people laughed at him, didn’t take it serious that who all wasn’t aboard when it took off, was going to DIE. They were too busy doing their own thing. They didn’t care. They were too busy loving themselves. I wish I had a giant bullhorn to say to the people of these days….. “Were all in this together, daddy said stay in the house until we are safe, and if we don’t listen to the rules, we could die.”
Still there will be those who won’t listen and continue to do what they want. Its some type of freedom for those people when the world is idle. They feel its there time to shine, or be heard. They want attention and to feel important doing the opposite of what their suppose to do. I find some people hate being alone for fear of hearing themselves saying how they need to change, and be a better person. Some of these people refuse to stay home. They disregard rules.
This is the perfect time in life to regroup ourselves, to learn more about who we are. To read our bibles and to build a close/closer relationship with God. Time to be creative, time to change jobs, a time to spend it with our kids and spouses. A time to reflect. There is so much to do.
Take advantage of this time, because soon enough things will go back to business as usual.
My daughter recently launched her very own handcrafted soaps and they SMELL DELICIOUS!
These days women love having their own personal soaps separate from the family. We call them *Yonisoaps* because they are especially good for your vagina, but absolutely can be used all over.

I enjoy taking photos from time to time, so here are a few that I took recently.
When spring arrives I’m going to this same spot to capture the beauty of the fountain. You wont believe your eyes.

If we would just pay attention to the moments.
I was talking to a friend earlier about her husband who happens to be cheating on her. She sees the need to check the woman when the man is the one who her loyalty lies with.
I remember being her age 22-23 and I was dealing with the same thing, but her situation is a little bit different because she has a husband and four children with him. As a woman I can surely understand her hurt and pain. The 52-year-old woman in me wants to tell her as she has been dealing with this for months and months now to file for divorce, collect child support, focus on herself and her children and to keep it moving. But the 22-year-old in me wants to tell her to keep fighting for her marriage because at that age I wanted to fight for my relationship and friendship with my significant other. But I do know that a cheating man or woman takes time to get it out of their system, and if a person takes too long waiting for that to happen, it can mess their partner up mentally, causing all kinds of trust issues in this relationship and the ones to come.
I hate to see this young couple go through this. But I also hate to see even more the back-and-forth exchange with her, her husband, and the person he’s cheating with on Facebook. If they were to ever work on a place of healing and actually get through it, they cannot take back the damage that’s been done on Facebook. Outsiders are not the easiest to forgive because they are constantly thinking about their own situation in this same area of hurt.
The Lesson in all of this….. try hard, really hard, pray if you need, keep your private life off social media. Don’t look like what you’re going through.
I’ll be back next week! 😘
