"Now Is The Time"

God is making it perfectly clear to me what His message is.  Whenever I begin to doubt, He speaks to me and says not to worry, "Now is the Time!"  The message was clear to me when I was laying on the acupuncture table two weeks ago getting my treatment.  As I was laying there deep in my thoughts and practicing my relaxation techniques, I looked over at the wall and there on the wall was my sign...

in a picture frame clear as day...."Now is the time: this is it"!!!  While, this hit me strong that day at Acupuncture, I didn't act on it.  So, two days later, He spoke to me again, "Now is the time". Then the next day, and the day after that, I continued to receive messages continuing to push me until I took the next step.  And today, here I am, and here I will stay.  He hasn't given up on me, and I will never give up on Him!  Everything has been coming together and everything has started happening.  Mom sold her house, met a great man and they are making plans for their future.  Life is so good right now. Life is very busy, constantly on the go and work for both Tom and I is thriving.  Very exciting times. For the book, things slowed down some, but I know now is the time.  I took a little break but it seems inevitable that when one of us slows down, the other gets going.  While I've been busy with work, Mom has been busy running to luncheons and keeping our blog alive, etc.  Now, Mom will be busy emptying out her house and making plans for her future.  So, as God has said, "Now is the Time: This is it", and so,  I have some work to do.  It may get even busier and even crazier for a while, but I know in His time whether it be Now, or later.....He will turn this into what He wants for us!  But, NOW is the time for me to continue to stay faithful to His dream for us and keep moving in the right direction.  He can only lead us.  It is up to us to follow - knowing that He is putting the right people in our path and that He will bring us to where He wants us to be.  For with God anything is possible.

Remember, "Now is the Time: this is it"!  Listen and follow and you will be amazed at the outcome! Take that first step, even if you don't see the rest of the staircase.....God will get you to where you need to be and He will see you through everything and anything, for He is always with you!

Just wanted to share something that I came across many years ago that captured my heart.  I thought it appropriate to start the New Year!  May God Bless you and your family with much happiness, good health and love in the year ahead.

GO PLACIDLY   amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in  your own career, however humble, it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.  Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is, many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment; it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy!

It has been a very busy year for Sharon and I.  We have much to be thankful for through the grace of God. This past year has been very eventful to say the least. We have shared some very sad  times in the beginning of the year with the loss of my sister and other loved ones and yet have been blessed to have also shared many happy times, laughter, and a new birth in our family to end our year on a happy note. In between all of this activity, our first book together, "Signs from God" has been published and we are taking our writing to another level.  Our book signing event that was held  October 25, 2015 was a complete success with a great turnout. We are grateful for all the new friends and acquaintances we have met along the way and we thank all of our supporters in this endeavor and feel truly blessed to have your continued interest, love, and support. We are happy to be sponsoring an event at the Chicks in Charge Women's Luncheon on January 6th, 2016 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Owings Mills, MD at 12:00 noon tomorrow, and have other events coming up in the new year.  We will keep you posted, and hope to see some of you there.

God Bless you and your families and God Bless America!
