"On the seventh day... God rested from all his work."  Gnensis 2:2 

Do you ever wonder when the madness of daily life will stop long enough for you to catch your breath?  If you are, like myself, and most people, who are caught up in our schedule obsessed society,  you fall into bed at night exhausted and sometimes much to much tired to fall asleep.

You are right to think that God wants you to tend to business and meet your responsibilities, but He also means ...

"Show proper respect to everyone; Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king."  1 Peter 2:17


All I'm tring to do is provide some guidance and discipline while the child is still young.  The bible does say ...

Motherhood is the greatest privilege of life...  "He settles the... woman in her home as a happy  mother of children.  Praise the Lord."  Psalms 113:9.  Good evening.  What a full day we had today.  A Woman's work is truly never done.   Well, today I didn't accomplish everything I set out to do, but it was a full day indeed.  I want to thank God again for bringing my family close together, and allowing me the opportunity to spend such precious...

No Fear

Today I have taken a huge step.  I found myself able to go back into the "office".  I was not sure if I was ready for that, or ready to see anyone there, but God is wonderfull, all of the time.  "Fear cannot take hold unless it is fed."  Franklin Graham    "...I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."  Psalm 23:4  What a day this has been.  I rose to the wonderful blessings all around me, and thanked ...

Spiritual Growth

Wow, it has been quite some time since I've written here.  There have been many changes in my life in the last few months.  The most recent event has allowed something in me to die, to be reborn.  As is with any death, you have to have a time of grief and mourning.  Both of these processes are ment to heal, and not to harm.   "Growth is the goal of the Christian.  Maturity is mandadory...  If you are the same Christian you were a few months ago, be care...

Spiritual Starvation

Posted by Valerie Anderson-Stallworth on February 18, 2010 at 11:56 PM Comments comments (0)

"How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" Psalm 119:103... Many of us live in countries where food is abundant and people are well fed. That's why we may not be familiar with the symptoms of starvation. At the outset, victims have an insatiable craving for nourishment. As time passes, however, the body weakens, the mind is dulled, and the desire for something to eat wanes. In fact, starving people actually reach a point when they don't even want food that is plac...

There is a time!

Weighed Down or Way Up? If you're not as close to God as you used to be, guess who moved? "Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us." Hebrews 12:1 Wheewww... What a last few whirlwind days. I've got to get myself more committed to this Blog. Having to find the time to shout out the last few days has been difficult, but I wouldn't trade the last week for anything. I took some time to reconnect with the most important man in my life, next to God of course, and the ...

Wheewwww, another Super Bowl down, another trip to Disney Land, and another football season has come to an end. Jumbalaya... gone, wings... gone, chicken salad... gone, lots of picante cheese dip left, but just about everything else is gone. The boys are in the bed...sleep. The girls are in the bed... sleep. Monique and Ari gone home... to sleep. The house is so quiet... I can barely hear a peep. All of this calm and quiet makes me want to sleep. It's over now. What a blessed day we had today...

A New Day

Posted by Valerie Anderson-Stallworth on February 6, 2010 at 6:29 PM Comments comments (0)

Every day should be a "New Day". Life is never what you expect it to be. We begin each and every day with a kiss from heaven. God is our master, and the head of my life and house. I've been wanting to do the blog thing for a very long time. Here I go. Welcome to my New Day. This year I will turn 50 years old, and yes, Doctor Cheryl told me last week that this is the year of the Colonoscopy. I am excited about turning 50. In August, I will be a half a century older, or younger, which ever way ...
