HELLO EVERYONE!!!

Man it’s been a waste of money to have this thing last year. I don’t know how many times I posted, but let’s try to get that number way up there this year!! 2016 was a great year, but very very busy, which is why I never posted.  2017 I hope will be just as good or better! I want to post things on here that interest all of you budaroos who subscribe to my blog. What interests you? What makes you guys smile and happy? I want this to be the one stop shop for all things great and wonderful.  On a bad or horrible day, I want you to come to this site and be uplifted and overjoyed!! So, let’s get something big started here!! I am here to serve God by helping you! God bless and let’s shine bright together in this brand new year!!!

A New Beginning

A new beginning
Will hopefully find you grinning
As we take the first steps into the new year
I hope that you find some cheer
Put the old thoughts into a box
And make sure it locks
As we learn from what went wrong before
We will surely soar
Higher than ever before
And we will see great new possibilities
That will put an end to our hostilities
So here’s to you, my friend
I’ll be with you to the end
Have a blessed New Year
And don’t forget I am always near

Into A World

I came into a world that had no room
Born of a virgin in her womb
I lived a life known to only a few
While other’s attempt to sue
Given time I can surely tell
You’ll be on a mountain top ready to yell
Bringing praise to my name
And not doing it for the fame
I gave you my best
So that you may finally rest
Your burdens were heavy and made you weak
The future for you was looking quite bleak
So here I am with my arms stretched wide
Crying out for you as I hung there and died
Now I live forevermore
Hoping that you will open up the door
Letting me into your life every day
Even though you may stray
I’ll help you through it all
Just as long as you don’t build a wall

True Happiness

True happiness comes from doing one good deed after another without expecting anything in return but a smile.  It’s humbling yourself to serve others with no strings attached, even if you feel like they don’t deserve it. Pay it forward, be the first to plant the seed and then enjoy as you watch it grow into something breathtakingly beautiful! You were put on this earth for a reason, don’t wait for someone else to start something, start it yourself!!

Do Everything

“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you.  Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” (Philippians 2:14-15 NLT)

> Study Notes
– Why’s complaining and arguing so harmful? If all that people know about a church is that its members constantly argue, complain, and gossip, they get a false impression of Christ and the Good News.  Belief in Christ should unite those who trust him.  *good reminder!
– Lives should be characterized by moral purity, patience, and peacefulness, so that we’ll “shine brightly” in a dark and depraved world.  A transformed life is an effective witness to the power of God’s word. **

QUESTION TO PONDER: Are you shining brightly, or are you clouded by complaining and arguing?

<< This is probably one of the greatest devotions I’ve had in a long time! I got the verse off of my brothers wall, they use it to teach their kids and as soon as I saw it, I took out my bible, journal and wrote it down.  How many times do we, as Christians, find ourselves arguing and/or complaining? I do it every single day. I do it especially at work, where I need to be the best example of a Christian, and yet I fail every time.  I complain because I feel like I’m being burned out by the amount of work they give me, but the flipside is I do more work and work harder and faster to glorify God haha, so I don’t feel like it’s ok for me to slow down.  I argue with the things that I feel are common sense, but others don’t see it the way I do.  I am around it all the time.  This verse though teaches me that I need to rise above the world, rise above what everyone else may be doing and be a shining example to those around me of who God is.  It’s a horrible challenge, but it’s one that I hope I can win over time.  Will you join me? >>
