Goodbye 2015.....

   Wow.. I can't believe it's the last day of 2015!! This year has been a whirlwind, to say the least. My family went through the hardest time of our lives with the passing of my Mom in June. It's been very hard to go on with life without her. From now on , when I think about 2015, I will remember the day that She took her last breath on this earth. I feel funny when I say this, but in a way 2015 was also one of the most beautiful years of my life. The love and kindness We received from friends and family surrounding Mom's death brought such warmth to us in the midst of loss. Most of all , The love and comfort of our Savior, Jesus Christ, made this year a blessed one. We are so fortunate that we have a Heavenly Father who truly cares about His children. He loves us so much and it hurts Him to see us suffer. He also carried us through a difficult season in October when we lost my precious Grandma , "Mimi". I miss both of these women being apart of my everyday life, but I carry the memory of them in my heart and strive to be the woman they influenced me to be. This year along with its trials have taught me the importance of relying upon GOD. If it weren't for Him, I wouldn't have the strength and courage to face each day. Thank you , LORD for carrying me through day by day. This reminds me of the poem, Footprints in the Sand:

The Footprints Prayer

One night I had a dream...
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, There was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, You would walk with me all the way; But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, There is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why in times when I needed you the most, you should leave me.
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child. I love you, and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."

Blessed be GOD who comforts us! Let's pass on His Love and Comfort to those around us! 

Here's to a blessed 2016! By God's Grace, I hope it is a year of Love, Laughter, Peace, and Spiritual Growth for us all!!

Hello, Friends!! Happy Independence Day!

It's been over 3 months since I last blogged (in April). There's been a lot going on around here, and I'm ready to fill you in:

My Mom & best friend feel asleep in Jesus on June 19th, 2015 after a long fight against Cancer. She told me many times that she trusted God to heal her whenever He saw fit. If He choose to heal her on this earth or to wait until HIS second coming when He will take us all home to heaven, She trusted HIM. As a dear friend said :

 "She went about her work for God with confidence, constantly sharing the Gospel
 and leaving the results to Him. A life well lived!" 

  She is now "asleep" awaiting Jesus' second return. Here's a link to an article explaining the Biblical definition of what happens when a person dies ;

During these past two weeks, I have experienced the nearness of God like never before in my lifetime. He truly has been my Refuge and Strength.

Psalm 46 King James Version (KJV)

46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Please keep my family and I in your prayers through these coming days, weeks, months, years as we await Jesus' second coming. Come quickly , LORD Jesus!!

A Journal Entry- 3 years ago

Jan. 10 , 2012

Dear Lord,

I'm at my breaking point! I feel like a horrible person. Help me! Show me what to do next. I'm tired of being two-faced. I want YOU in my life! Help me! Please, Lord! Transform me! Please, I am pleading ,desperately pleading!

Romans 5;3 
"And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience."


At this point in my life, I can remember being a typical teenager. I was disrespectful to my parents, especially my Mom. I was a controlling person, and said many things I now regret. I now know that I am fortunate that GOD gave me a second chance to make things right. He gave me more grace....(see James 4:6) and I am now so thankful for that. As an 18 year old when I wrote this, I had just started a maturing process that God divinely directed. He made me into a much humbler, kinder individual. Believe me, I still have times when I am tempted to be that controlling person again. Everyday there are moments when I want to open my mouth and say something that is not Christlike nor necessary. I am grateful that God has given me more time on this earth to share HIS love and grace, and to point others to HIM. I don't know how much longer I have to live, only God knows that, and its in HIS hands.While I am alive, I will share HIS love & continue to allow HIM to change me.

Sunsets, Snow, Puppies & GRACE

    What do Sunsets, Snow, Puppies , and God's Grace have in common? In recent weeks , I have been overwhelmed by God's gifts to me in the form of these four things, among countless others.

On a Friday couple weeks back, I experienced this beautiful sunset on my journey home from work. It was so breathtakingly colorful & gorgeous that I felt compelled to stop and take a photo. I just had to capture that moment to save and to share. At the closure of a challenging day/week at work, God gave me this beautiful gift , right when I least deserved it.

Last Tuesday, another gift came in the form of SNOW!!!  

Psalms 51:7  "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." I've always welcomed snow as a cleansing on the earth. It brings at quiet, peaceful blanket over the ground. It was also this little guy's FIRST snow!! He had a marvelous time rolling , jumping, sliding, etc. on the cold, wet snow! To see one of God's creatures experience such joy can only bring a smile to the christian's face.

What an amazing hymn, Come Thou Fount! So many lines that are wonderful to be reminded of.    This is a signed 8 x 10 print of my original

This comes from one of my all-time favorite hymns : "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing". This song just about sums up my life right now.

Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace; 
call for songs of loudest praise;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,  
mount of thy redeeming love.
Dear Lord,
Thank you for your everlasting, unchanging, marvelous grace! I'm so overwhelmed by your
mercy and love for me. I pray that I will be ever thankful for it, and always ready to 
share the good news with those I come in contact with. I love you , LORD!
Your Princess,

Best Moments of 2014

For me and my family, 2014 has been challenging. It's been full of troubles & trials, but was filled with many more blessings!! It seems that when God asks us to trust Him through a trial, He's just wanting us to hold on until the "sun comes out". He knows what plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11) and just wants us to trust him fully, unconditionally. I'm praying that 2015 will, for all of us, be a year of character growth and an even more amazing walk with our FATHER! Let's look back at some great moments of 2014 for ForeverGodsPrincess! 

It's been quite the amazing year filled with family, friends, and a whole lot of God's love & grace!! Here's to an even better 2015!

Jeremiah 29:11
" For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

It's a Wonderful CHRISTmas!

lots of christmas printables! These are so pretty. There's 3 or 4 I want to print out for my home.

Luke 2:11-14(KJV)

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Merry Christmas!!
