Having peace....

The wonderful book called Webster's Dictionary gives us several definitions of the word peace. 

Such as:  a state in which there is no war or fighting: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions: harmony in personal relation: in a state of concord or tranquility.

Sometimes we get so busy in life, it seems as if we have lost or don't know where to find peace any more.  Being a wife is not easy but can be enjoyable.  Being a mother is not easy but can be enjoyable.  There comes a time where we, as wives and mothers have to have peace.  Peace is relaxing,  enjoyable, comfortable,  quiet,  simple,  happiness,  and so much more.  In today's word,  it can seem almost in possible for you to find peace.  Why?  We have to cook. We have to clean.  We have to be the nurse.  We have to be the counselor.  We have to be the teacher.  We have to be the advisor.  We have to be the Banker.  We have to be the designer.  We have to be the Cleaners.  We have to be the prayer warrior.  We have to be seamstress.  Do you see where this is going?  We think to ourselves when do we have time for ME? That question is on every wife's mind daily. 

We as wives and mothers MUST take the time for ourselves because if we don't,  then who will?  Now, I'm not saying date night with your spouse is out.... no, no, no,  those are a must.  But look at your calendar for the week,  month,  next couple of months.  Take out a day for just you.  Better yet,  if you are able to do a weekend, do it.  Go somewhere quiet,  peaceful,  just for you to clear your head.  Clearing your head,  gives you that " freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions" and sooner or later,  you will have peace.  If you do this s couple of times in a month,  quarterly,  every so often,  you will then have peace.  No more tiredness.  No more headaches.  No more being aggressive over everything.  Just pure joy and happiness!  Is not impossible to have. 

Now go get your PEACE!!!!!

Decluttering your Writing Untensils!!!

Good morning.  This website is one of my favorites.  She gives great advice on organization and personal life as well.  If you are like me and have pens, pencils, markers, color pencils, or other writing utensils all over your home and you can't find one when you need it, maybe this will help you out.  I am going to combine this with another organizational idea I received and I will post about it later.  

The Nest Effect: Get It Together: Declutter Writing Utensils: Get It Together is a series of small tasks you can do to help get your home and life back in order. Each task is meant to only take 15 min...

Happy Anniversary to all of the January couples!!!

I just want to say "Happy Anniversary" to all of the couples that will be celebrating in the month of January. May your love, peace, happiness, and joy continue throughout the days of your marriage. Look into your spouse's eyes and tell them that you love them and that you are thankful that they are a part of your life.  Love on them. Continue to support them. Comfort them. Love on them. 

I just want to personally say Happy Anniversary to my in-laws.  I love them dearly and they are great role models to me and their son's marriage.  They are truly a great example of a Godly marriage!  Mr. & Mrs. Jerry Gaston, Sr., 33 years and counting. :-) 

Happy New Year to you and yours!!!

Happy New Year everyone!  Thank God for the blessing to live to see and almost complete January 1, 2014.  What are your daily goals for your marriage in 2014?? What are you thinking of bringing back and/or starting to bring the romance back into your marriage?  1 thing that I am personally going to do is making 2 goal sheets for my marriage: 1 personally & 1 with my spouse.  The reason I am including my spouse is because he can add his ideas to the list and its something can complete together. 

While sitting down doing the list, talk to you spouse.  Get an idea of what he likes and what he doesn't. The goal list you do with your spouse can be called your "Marriage BUCKET List".  Make time for your spouse, your marriage, and your family in 2014.  We all got side tracked in 2013 and thinking back, that is probably what caused a lot of arguments, bitterness, saying things that both regrets, etc. 

Make 2014 like the year you got married.  Remember how happy you both were after that special day....yeah baby, it's time to bring that back!  Again, Happy New Year to you and your family and MAKE IT A GREAT YEAR! :-)
