Blessing For Your Son

Day 3:  “A Blessing For Your Son/s”.  {5 Day of Blessings  For Your Family Series}

{Days 1 thru 5}  

Why Bless Your Son? 

Raising our boys to be a man after God’s own heart can be very challenging 
these days.  With all the lies that this world tells us about boys and men such as, “boys will be boys”.  We use these phrases as excuses only to enable our boys and men to fall short.  
Which sadly only sets them up for failure.  

Sometimes as parents we can get off focus and feel that it is important to teach our son/s about other things such as sports, academics or talents.  Why is the importance of teaching our children about God put on the back burner?  
I know, I get caught up in that trap too with our daughter.  It’s only natural, yet thank the Lord, He is here to remind us through this post how important it is to teach our children about Him. 

Society does not focus on raising men of character, integrity and righteousness.     
That is why it is so critical to pray for your son/s and impart upon them a special blessing. 
As parents, we have the God-given authority to see that our son/s grow up to be men who love the Lord with all of their heart, mind, soul and strength.  So rise up Men of God! 

Here is a blessing excerpt taken from John D Garrr’s book entitled, The Book of Blessings, Ancient Biblical Blessings for Every Occasion.  You can also find these and many other blessings in this book entitled, Bless You by John D. Garr.


The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord cause his face to shine upon you and
be gracious unto you.
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

May your mouth speak with wisdom.  
May your heart meditate with reverence.
May your hands do the work that God has given you.
May your feet hasten to follow the path that God has laid out for your life.
May the Lord’s full will for you be accomplished.
May the Spirit of the Lord, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and power, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord be upon you.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be upon
you both now and forever,

Blessing For Your Daughter

Day 2:  “A Blessing For Your Daughter/s”.  {5 Day of Blessings  For Your Family Series}

{Days 1 thru 5}  

Since my daughter was a baby, we have been applying this blessing over her.  It stems from the ancient hebrew biblical blessing.  We were inspired by the book by John Garr entitled The Book of Blessings:  Ancient Biblical Blessings For Every Occasion.  Here is an excerpt
from the book.  You can also find these and many other blessings in this book entitled, Bless You by John D. Garr.

Since we only have one daughter, I am posting the daughter blessing first, but will post the blessing for a son next in my 5 Days of Blessings for the Family Series!
We pray this blessing over our daughter once a week during our sabbath time, but you may do this as you feel led.


May the Lord make you like Sarah and Rebecca, like Rachel and Leah who together built the house of Israel.  May your entire life be fruitful.  
May you be favored by your husband and be blessed with children.  
May the Lord’s full will for you be accomplished in your life.  
The Lord bless you and keep you. 
The Lord cause His face to shine upon you and be gracious onto you. 
The Lord turn his face to shine upon you and give you peace (shalom).

Blessed are you of the Lord, my daughter, for you have been kind and generous.
The Lord God is your God, and his people are your people. 
May all the people know of certainty that you are a virtuous daughter.
May your mouth speak with wisdom.
May your heart meditate with reverence. 
May your hands do the work that God has given you. 
May your feet hasten to follow the path that God has laid out for your life. 
May the Spirit of the Lord, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and power, 
the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord Jesus Christ, 
the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit 
be upon you both now and forever.

Why Worry? {A Mom’s Recipe for Peace}

This past week, the Lord has been teaching me about worry.  
Can you relate? 

Every time I think I got it down, I realize I don’t.  Sound familiar?  So much easier said than done, right?  I love the picture that comes to my mind when I think about Matthew 6:25-34 the “do not worry“verses.  I see the little birdies collecting their food.  They don’t worry, yet God provides food for them.   If God cares enough for the sparrow, then He is surely taking care of me and my family, everything!

Jesus tells us not to worry, and many cases we need to be reminded. . . 

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.  Matthew 6:25-34 

If you are like me, for some reason when I lay my head down at night, I seem to worry.  
The other night when I felt that worry thing creep up in my mind, I immediately thought of a plan of action.  An instant plan of action!  Just like a instant cup of coffee wakes us up.  Well, in an instant I thought of this recipe to combat my worry.  I call it my recipe for peace.  I’d love to share with you.

Recipe for Instant Peace 

1.  Recognize you are worrying.

2.  Read Matthew 6:  25-34

3.  Stop, review, confess the bible verses:  Philippians 4: 6-7 

“Do not be anxious for any reason, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God, and the healing peace of God-the very shalom of Heaven-which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Yeshua the Messiah”.  

3.   Remember a time (that’s usually recent) when you did worry and it eventually 
everything worked out for your good.

4.  Thank God for his faithfulness and tell Him you believe that He’s 
done it before, you know He will do it again.

5.  Confess your worries and give them to the Lord.

6.  Worship– sing a song of praise to the Lord

7.  Rest in Him

How are some ways that you combat worry?  

We can beat this worry thing with the Word of God.  Keep pressing on!   May you be blessed with a day of peace.

He Just Wants You To Be You

How often do we sit down to talk with our girlfriends about size, our hang ups, wrinkles and how hard it is to just keep up with age?  

I was chatting with a girlfriend this morning over red pepper hummus and bean chips.   She is ten years older than me, and looks fabulous for her age!  It was funny to be talking about how hard it is to lose our tummies and how our bodies are becoming a little bit more interesting with age.  It just seems harder to stay or be what this world calls beautiful.  

When I was a teenager, my mom warned me about this phase of life.   Actually, she warned me about growing up too fast as a woman.  “Enjoy the age you are, she said, because one day you’ll wake up and wonder where did the years go?”.   Of course, I didn’t understand what she meant.  I had no clue. 

Now, it seems my Mama’s words are beginning to linger faintly in my ears.  Sadly, bringing my thirty-something me back to a place of understanding.   Well, now I’m much older, wiser and well, older.  I think it is safe to say that I am in that zone of wondering where the years went? 

It really doesn’t matter what age we are or what season of life comes our way.  For some reason, every woman seems to be caught in that deceiving ocean that wants to pull us in deep and keep us from seeking the dry land of truth.   

How are we drawn by those ocean currents of nonsense and insecurities?  

When, all the time we are a total creation of beauty. 

Does it make sense?  

When we focus on how the Lord sees us, we can then be persuaded to see ourselves like He does.   
Did you know that the King of Kings, our true Lord, our knight in shining armor (gold at that) is enthralled with your beauty?  Wow!  The word enthralled means to captivate one’s attention.  The Lord is so paying attention to you right now.  

Why do we crave the false attention of this world, when we have the attention of the Most High God?  

Now don’t get me wrong,  I am blessed to have a business where I sell make-up.   I totally believe in women wearing makeup and taking care of themselves.  I know God wants that for us.  However, I am content knowing that all Jesus really wants you to be is you.  

Isn’t it so freeing to know that He is enthralled with you?   Any way you are, look, feel, act?  Really?  Wow, that’s hard to take in.   Especially,  when we wake up with bed head, p.m.s. cramping, eyes half open while kids are screaming for breakfast in the morning.  Do we really feel at these moments that we could have someone enthralled with us? Not really.  

Yet, our God is enthralled.  

He sees our heart.  He sees us beautiful when no one else may see us that way.  Even when we can’t see ourselves that way.  Isn’t that enough?  It should be.  

Ladies,  it’s time to start swimming back to the shore of truth.  Back to dry land.  Swim away from the ocean currents of lies and insecurities.   It’s time to believe who we really are in Him.   It’s time to find the truth that He has been speaking to us all along, 

His words echo, “You are my Beauty”. 

Ladies, let his loving arms enwrap you with his truth today.  Know that you are in no safer place than  In the presence of the King! 

What does it mean to you know that YOU are HIS Beauty? 

You are wonderfully and fearfully made girlfriend!  

Walk in His light today and keep pressing on.
