Your Interpretation Is?

Give us your interpretation on the concept of Joy? Is it centered around all the material items in your home? Can you purchase as much as you need or desire at the corner store? Or could it be the price Jesus Christ paid before and after you allowed him into your life?

Now, we're going to be bias and let you can come to your own conclusions; however deep down inside you know that  counterfeit kind of Joy isn't what your seeking. Here are two definitions regarding the word Joy. You decide which interpretation you'll stand by:
  1. The Merriam~Webster Dictionary says this about the word JOY ... It's an emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires.
  2. This is what the Bible states on behalf of the word JOY ...
Psalm 16:9 ~ And so my heart is glad. My soul is full of joy. My body also will rest without fear.

It's Unconventional

We've chat with so many Christians over the years, that tend to believe that the best way to avoid problems is by looking the other way or running away; however our Pastoral experience has taught us this:

1. In the most bizarre places and with the most unlikely people, God can Bless you ...  
2. Hypothetically speaking, sometimes it has to rain cats and dogs before the Lord opens the  NEW doors ...

Thus, don't lose your mind and rejoice in this instead ... 

1 Thessalonians 5:24 ~ He who calls you is Faithful; he will surely do it.

TIME can feel like an elevator ride in a person's life; because it lifts you up when you need it or tears you down like a wrecking ball when you least expect it ... Its also valid to say that time heals old wounds or harden a person's heart. Of course, everyone has their own story to tell and/or drama to live; but listen to this, if it weren't for JESUS CHRIST. The King of ALL things in our life's we'd be singing to a different tune right now ...  

We were blind and now we can clearly see what the Lord has destined for our lifes ... For we were also once lost and now we're found ... That's why whatever goes in our life, we MUST do this every moment we get ...

Psalm 118:24 ~This is the day that the Lord has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Actions > Words

LORD, may our Actions say more than our Words so that we may leave a positive mark in the minds and hearts of others ... We communicate this thought to all of you because every little boy needs a Super Hero to look up to and every Princess longs for a loving confidante to discuss girly stuff.

Most of all, every adult that's made a few lapses in their life's needs to meet someone to testify about what Jesus Christ is capable of doing for them. Now for all of you that don't know, our source of fortitude is named Jesus Christ, the Great ... I Am! According to the word of God, we know it to be true and that's why we'll NEVER stop telling  people this ...

 Deuteronomy 31:8 ~ It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.

Just Say ... Bye Bye

Release those pessimistic thoughts and people that won't allow you to reach your full potential! Now we're not saying that you should stop being their friends or Praying for them; nonetheless you should set boundaries between you and negative minded people that constantly feel the need to throw you a pity party instead of celebrating your strengthens. Say bye bye or until further notice to them; because you want to hop on the positive train and you don't need any excess baggage  ...

I'm making emphasis on this because people that call you over so that they can personally tear down your dreams or put the brakes on you enjoying that sweet slice of cake ... I'm using cake as a metaphor for something sweet and great that's about to transform your life in an AWESOME way ... In conclusion, when someone attempts to dim the lights on your blissful life or waste your time reliving your past mistakes, remind them of what the Bible says ...

2 Corinthians 5:1 ~ Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

I would like to share with all of you that tomorrow, June 6, 2012 my GEM & I will be celebrating 24 years of City Hall Wedding Bliss. Now what StiLL takes my breath away is the manner in which my GEM & I StiLL hold hands every where we go, eat from the same plate and his kisses still tickle my thoughts, warm my heart and curve my toes ... Lord have mercy on me,
What also blows my mind is that he StiLL remembers everything we did and said on our 1st. date ... If that isn't LOVE then my Hubby is gifted with the ability to make my heart beat faster every time I see, hear or am near him ...

OMG, my knees StiLL shake whenever he looks at me ... That's why I'm so GRATEFUL to the Lord for this ...

Matthew 19:5 ~ And said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'?

One more piece of news ... My Dominican Danish of a husband is also rejoicing in his Birthday Tomorrow too.

A Monday Morning Broadcast

We don't want to be identical to the many leafs that eventually fall off the trees. Nor do we wish to be like a fly on the wall that listens in on other peoples painful conversations. Not to mention, we don't ever want to act like a dump truck that constantly picks up every one's mess and drops it off in an abandoned yard for the world to see, smell and/or pick through ...

We will broadcast to all of you, that we didn't end up like any of the above because we're surrounded by each others Love ... All we've experienced in life is due to the Love that the Lord has poured over us ... That's why we truly believe in this ...
Proverbs 27:17 ~ Iron sharpens iron and one man sharpens another.

A Genuine Mark

A message can come in various forms or shapes ... For instance, it can be as small as a smile, a medium size wave or as BIG as a bear hug. In our opinion we don't have any particular preference on how it arrives, what does concern us is this ... That it leaves a genuine mark in a person's heart ...

Now, this is our message to all of you ... While Jesus Christ was being nailed to the Cross, undergoing brutal abuse by the Roman Soldiers and also being denied & betrayed by 2 of his fellow Disciples too ...  All he went through was based upon his love for you  and under no circumstance will he ever abandon you either  ... For he's been sent by our Heavenly Father to accompany you through all your milestones in life. No matter what goes on in our life's we'll always be GRATEFUL for this ...

1 John 4:10 ~ In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Confusing Right?

Each person has their own theory on whats right or wrong in life. Apparently its confusing for some people; however that's the price we pay for living in a nation that welcomes democracy. LOL! Now in my opinion, nature also has a  lesson for us to learn ... For example, observe the way the leafs fall from the trees, its a graceful process orchestrated by GOD's wind ... The  wonderful thing about nature is that it doesn't involve any type of power struggle!

On the flip side, here's something that I find humorous ... We're part of a society that tends to shifts gears at a spur of the moment(hey, that's the title of this blog) or like a toddler having  a temper tantrum. Why? Perhaps, we need to render our whims to CHRIST and things will turn out alright. You see life really isn't Confusing ... Right? This is one of the millions of qualities that I truly love about the LORD ...

2 Timothy 2:7 ~ Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.

When we LAUGH our predicaments suddenly don't seem that bad. It's as if the laughter we share brings about a BLISSFUL scent in our house ... Our minds are immediately disconnected from those painful thoughts and instead we feel the need to: sit in our kitchen, enjoy a warm cup of coffee, nibble on a sweet piece of carrot cake allow our hearts to reminisce on our very first kiss ... All this came about ... When We LAUGHED! 

 Before we leave, we'd like to remind all of you what the Bible also says ...  

Proverbs 17:22 ~ A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Back in the Days

Back in the Days ... I constantly laughed, cried and patiently waited for my Mom and  Dad to stop debating about the past ... It was a simple time;  nonetheless a BLISSFUL one. On account of, my childhood was filled with an array of unexpected surprises that always caught my eye because it came from the HEART.

After school my little brother Tono(which means Tony in Spanish) and I ran home to a table full of cherry kool-aid, ham & cheese sandwiches and our favorite bowls overflowing with compels chicken noodle soup. It was Mmm, Mmm Good ...

Perhaps, for today's generation full of high tech stuff, they may see my childhood as not being all that much fun; but in my mind, heart and the tears I shed every time I think of them ... I lived in a home surrounded with a lot of LOVE and with this I say adieu; because those were the Good old Days for me ...

We've Been Sent,

Plenty of things can occur in a person's life: some pleasant, painful and others perpetually surprising. In retrospect, we'd like to emphasize that what your going through won't out live you. We've been sent from the LORD to assure ALL of you that this to shall pass. For his Glory and your FAITH to be uplifted beyond your understanding ...

In your Hands

In your hands, we know who we are ...
In your hands, we're NEVER alone ...
In your hands, the pain of the world feels like a pinch, instead of some crazy rage ...
In your hands, our success has no limit; because you are the ultimate architect ...

No matter what situation comes our way. In the hands of JESUS CHRIST we're save ... Now the word of the LORD confirms what we wrote with this BIBLE verse ... 

John 3:16 ~ For GOD so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
