The Voice Of Divine Love Audio #Book Blast

More than ever I want God's word and peace for my heart. These past few days have been emotionally and spiritually challenging.

What do you use to get your spirit replenished?


thevoiceofdivineloveaudioscreen-shot-2016-09-27-at-09-50-35"The truth of God's love is a message many of us have always known, but we need to be reminded of it again and again. In our limited understanding, we have difficulty comprehending it. God has loved you with an everlasting love, and yet no matter how deeply we feel him in our lives, the word of God often goes unheard.

This is why, in the noise of the modern world, the simplicity of his message is all too easily lost. Yet while our prayers have no answers we can hear, that does not mean God has no voice. The Voice of Divine Love brings his word to you, brings you the light of God's acceptance, the comfort of his presence and love, and a guiding hand to live your life in his service.

It is a chance to hear his voice amongst the raucous chatter of the world and choose to follow his way to righteousness and eternal love. With this book, written in the hope of drawing others closer to God, helping them understand the depth of his love, and narrated as in the voice of the Almighty, you are provided a retreat in times of stress; not to simply hide from your problems, but to find their true purpose, alongside the purpose in all things.


Close your eyes and rest, find solace in knowing that, even when you are alone, he is always at your side, guiding you and taking care of you, in ways no other can. And as you are consoled, as you hear the one guiding voice which no person's life should go without, you will find answers to the questions you have always yearned to ask: why does God allow pain into your life, why do your prayers go unanswered, your wishes unfulfilled? There is no need to turn inward, to torture yourself for these answers. Simply listen, and understand The Voice of Divine Love. "   Audiobook on Audible / Amazon

#Music For The Soccer Mom's Soul - 4Ms

Soccer Mom:
So I volunteered to coach my daughter's soccer team. It was coming up on week two and we had already had to cancel their first game because there was no coach, so I decided to coach. Another parent took the reigns and wanted to be head coach.
So now, we are going about working together and getting it done.

Saturday, we played our first game - loss.
Today, Sunday we played our second game - loss. But they scored today and was so awesomely better than yesterday! My daughter made the first team score to tie the game. Oh it was a celebration!
She is so very proud of herself!
As soon as we get some practices in and see the strengths of each player, then we'll be more organized.

I'm looking forward to them having much fun and learning how to be a team. It's great that the parents are all in too!

At first, I didn't want to, I thought, surely, someone will jump in, but it didn't happen. And I decided to pray about it. So that day when it happened, it was just natural.
We now have a parent as head coach and I just fill in as assistant. I don't mind. I just want what's best for our team and he seems great at getting it done.

I don't think my husband was amused that I took on yet another thing to do. But hey, I do not like to be bored. I am blessed to be part of living.

Today, was worship in the morning. Soccer in the afternoon and choir practice just an hour ago.  Sundays were supposed to be rest day, but it's super busy. I tried to grab Saturday as our rest day, but soccer is not making that work out at all.

Oh well, seasons change.

Today hasn't been so great, but glad for the coaching distraction. Had a little outright with the husband and it seems my heart has been crying all day. I hate confrontations of any sort, but I think at this point I am just overwhelmed and not feeling particularly successful at our relationship. Or perhaps, it's the thing that happens each Sunday that wants families to be at odds with each other as we go into the house of worship.
Life happens. I'll pray for the best.

It's later in the evening and right now, the kids are beside me just hanging out and my cat laying on my feet. I will try to feel blessed.

The husband might be taking us out to dinner, so let's get the music hopping.



It's a FREEBIE y'all, so share whatever music you want.
I came upon this song the other night and realized I hadn't heard it in such a long time! I love the song.

#Music Instead Of Coffee For Exhausted Week From Short Weekend + #Win $25

This weekend seemed busier than usual.

Saturday was soccer in the morning for my son. My daughter's game was cancelled. She still has no coach. I'm so very disappointed for her. It's her first time playing soccer and she has been looking forward to playing. She really enjoyed the soccer camp.

I have been thinking/praying if I should volunteer.  They are now asking parents to volunteer.


I volunteer for our church and worked in the morning with the little ones. Always a blessing.
I didn't wake up early enough for the first service worship, so I missed that.

Picked up my son at our church from a sleepover. Oh he slept on the way home after church, slept at home until 3pm.
Then on our way to choir practice for his sister, he slept. He slept through her hour of practice! It was odd and silent. My son is always alive, loud and funny!
He said he stayed up all night. They were so wiped out that their bodies gave out to sleep unwillingly. Hahahaha. Now that was a true sleepover. Glad he had fun.

I suppose he is good on sleep for this school day. He seems bright eyed and bushy tailed now. I'm glad he finally understood what exhaustion felt like. I used it to let him know, that is how mom feels at times. :)

Welcome to another week. I have many chores and too many things to catch up on.

How was your weekend?




Theme:  Theme for Monday's Music Moves Me this Monday is "Songs about Music"!  Music doesn't necessarily have to be in the title, just a song about music!  Our Spotlight Dancer is "Naila-Moon"!

Natural Balance Celebrates National #GuideDogMonth With the Top Human-Canine Teams Who Make Us Believe

I have an eye problem and have often wondered how I'd adjust if things would change. I'm always interested in learning more about how a guide dog works and even learning sign language and all the things that aid in making life easier for a special needs person.

Question:
>> Have you ever seen a blind person in public and didn't know how to react, or worse—walked around them to avoid interacting with them? 

September is National Guide Dog Month and people who are blind or visually impaired and have chosen to work with guide dogs for mobility have incredible and inspiring stories to share about their adventures together.

Natural Balance (the maker of premium-quality pet food) and Guide Dogs for the Blind (a non-profit charitable organization that raises and trains guide dogs and serves the visually impaired) is celebrating Natural Balance's "top 10 human-canine teams who make us believe"


Here is the story of Maile & Jasmine:


Imagine, for a brief moment, that you’re in the prime of your life. You’re 23 years old and suddenly go blind overnight. For Maile George, this is not a fictional scenario—it’s what happened to her.
After losing her sight, Maile felt as if her life was shrinking. However, she met a woman who had a guide dog, who would become a role model and inspiration for her in living a fuller life.

Maile was introduced to her current canine companion, Jasmine, through Guide Dogs for the Blind

“Jasmine is a superhero times three! Not only is she a wonderful companion—there’s no one in the world I’d want to spend all day everyday with except her. She also enables me to navigate any sidewalk in any city safely, gracefully, and confidently,” says Maile.

She adds, “I enjoy volunteer work, taking classes, and I’m 100% convinced that I’m as healthy as I am because it’s just so much fun to get out and meet people when you have an intelligent, gorgeous, healthy, friendly, well-behaved and, yes, perfect guide dog!”

I had a very dear friend once whom I met through a co-worker. He was in a band, a very kind person and also blind.
It was amazing to see how well he commanded his environment. He showed confidence in his disability, but I felt sometimes he was perhaps sad. I think he could perhaps also see a little light, but not distinguish features clearly.

We were both a source of help to each other. I'd take him out to experience the town as best as I could. I remember I would always get drumsticks for us each Friday. At least, I let him know that I was getting drumsticks for us. We'd stop at the store and I'd get them, take him back to the office where he lived in a small apartment in the complex and we'd have the drumsticks. They were those fun ice cream things, and I loved them. They were a treat. He loved them too.

Surprisingly, after a few years, something happened and I was asking him what flavor drumstick he wanted. He said, barbecued! I was shocked. I explained the flavors they had. I think before all this, he would say to get what I got in regards to flavors. He started laughing.
Later he explained that he had always wondered where the drumsticks went when I ordered them!!! He thought I was ordering chicken this whole time!
Oh boy did we laugh to tears.

It's been years and I do miss him as a person. I know now that if we were still in contact or friends, I'd have gotten him a guide dog.

Our pets are so very important. We have adopted our cat, Moose. The kids love him and he is just a sweetheart to have in the family.
He stalks me around the house during the day :)


In September, Natural Balance and Guide Dogs for the Blind are partnering up to spread awareness about the amazing bond between people who are blind and their guide dogs. In addition to providing enhanced mobility for their handlers, guide dogs can also be a social bridge, opening a world of possibilities for friendship and human connection, all while showcasing the incredible capabilities of man's best friend.

National Guide Dog Month was inspired by Natural Balance's co-founder Dick Van Patten, who was blindfolded during a trip to a guide dog school and got to experience how these amazing creatures provide mobility to the visually impaired.

I truly believe we can do a great public service by sharing inspiring stories of people and their guide dogs, and highlighting the life-changing mission of Guide Dogs for the Blind!

Happy Healthy Cat Month: 80% of Cat Parents Believe They Can Interpret Their Cat's Meows

Cats have served as partners to humans throughout the ages. They were revered by the ancient Egyptians, respected by farmers as keen vermin hunters, and today, they're treated as beloved family members all over the world.



In celebration of Healthy Cat Month this September, Meow Mix has released a new data study that reveals just how far that special human-cat bond has come.

Did you know that 80% of cat parents believe they can interpret their cat's meows?


According to the Purrfect Together Survey by Meow Mix—the world famous cat food brand—in conjunction with Learndipity Data Insights, you heard correctly: People really think they are fluent in kitty!

To celebrate the unique bond humans share with their cats, Meow Mix recently launched a unique experience on the Purrfect Together website [www.purrfecttogether.com  Once there, feline fanatics can create a digital "oil" painting that helps express and immortalize their cat-love on canvas— a true Meowsterpiece!

In addition, cat parents can download a coupon for Meow Mix's newest product, Meow Mix Bistro Recipes—a classy meal to match a classy painting.


The Purrfect Together Survey results include the following fascinating insights:

Cat companionship offers something special. Why else would 57% of cat parents say they spend most of their free time with their kitty? Meanwhile, 42% of cat parents would choose quality time with kitty over going out with friends!
People believe the bond with their cats is like none other. In fact, 28% of cat parents tell their kitties secrets they've never told anyone else. And cats are good at keeping secrets!
People love to spoil their kitties and keep them happy. A significant majority of cat parents—72%—love to surprise their cats with treats.


These survey findings lead to one undeniable conclusion: Cat parents are more into their furry felines than ever before.

There's no love like cat love!
