Amazing. This is lovely. Thought for the week. God help us.

Do you know why you cannot send a file that you have not first downloaded? It is simply because you cannot give what you do not have. In the same vein, you cannot forgive wholly if you have not accepted the Lord’s forgiveness.

False-Truth

Guys check this out.
If you are considering taking your life, ask for help! Share your struggles with someone you love and trust.
For those of you who know and love someone who has taken their life and you believe them to be a Christian, let me say this: Some people have asked me before, “If a Christian commits suicide, do they go to hell?” and my answer is a resounding no!

If a person goes to heaven, it’s because they know and trust Jesus as their Savior, not because of how religious or put-together they seem. In the same way, if a person goes to hell, it’s because they do not know or trust Jesus.
If you’re reading this, your story is not over. Jesus wants us to have a life full of joy, hope and peace. Just remember that if ain’t good, God ain’t done. He works all things (even the things that seem hard right now) together for our good

Well in 2017, my husband and I got married and he had two kids, so I became an immediate step mum.

WHY I STARTED BLOGGING

I was going through various blogs on steemit.com weeks back and i found a contest post for bloggers.

We were encouraged to write a blog post with not less than 300 words on any (1) of the following topics / themes:

  2. WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT BLOGGING
  3. WHAT DO YOU HATE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING
  4. WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING

So i decided to go for the first one which is ”WHY I STARTED BLOGGING”

Well in 2017, my husband and I got married and he had two kids, so I became an immediate step mum. I loved documenting everything that we were doing in our lives, I loved sharing them, but I was putting them all into a scrap book. So I literally had it all in the rough, the only time people saw them was when they visited and I will be like ”Hey, look at my scrap book”, look at everything we have been doing isn’t that great!
But the thing is the not everyone wants to go through your scrap books over and over, so I discovered blogging. Its just been so great for me to be able to document everything that we have been doing, sharing things with my friends, and meet tons of other people all through blogging, and discovering this whole online world out there.
In 2018, I found out that i was pregnant, and my husband and I have been trying, so we were super excited. Well, I lost that baby at 8 weeks, and I have been a step mum which I loved being, but there was a part of me that wanted my own kids. I wanted kids to call me mum, but unfortunately we lost that baby. I was devastated, I thought there was something wrong with me, obviously there was nothing because ever since I have had three kids who are three and half and under, so clearly we had no problems whatsoever.
Anyway since I lost a child as at that time, that became a way for me to reach out and meet other people, I started getting into online forums, and the connection I was making with people who have been through the experience was huge. It was really like a jumping off point for me to get going on my blog, and now its a huge part of my life I love documenting the things that we are doing and I love knowing that my kids are going to be able to look back and read about the things that mum wrote about when they were probably 3 or younger. I also want them to appreciate posts like this whereby one day if I am gone, the kids can look back and be like ”I LOVE READING ABOUT MY MUM, THIS IS WHAT SHE LOVED DOING”
So I love blogging, I love what it does for my family and I also love the gift that it is to give to my kids later on in life.

Below is the link to the contest if you want to join in. I will also like to read about your own experience, so do me a favor to comment the link to your blog post so I can read about you too.

Family; Blood is Indeed Thicker Than Water

They say blood is thicker than water.

And indeed it is!

When you are born, you are taken care by your parents, your siblings, especially by your grandmothers! Then comes a time when your parents put in so much efforts to give you education and take you to tours to make you show around the world. They do all the stuffs they can do with their savings to make you grow. Even though they scold us, but all that have reasons! They don’t want you to face what they faced! They are not always right but then who is always right, isn’t it?

Every thing starts and ends with having a family with values where there is a strong bond among the family members. The family gives a person a sense of belonging such that the feeling is truly amazing. Knowing that you can let your guard down and be yourself without the fear or apprehension of being judged.

Unless you are a person of great importance like a top entrepreneur, scientist, leader of a nation, a sanyasi or too poor to meet the basic ends meet then only having a family is mostly a liability. Most of the middle class couples might see their faces only at evening time or for few minutes only but that small time period is enough to give a sense of homely satisfaction.

Many people like you have begun to question marriage and family making. They are realizing the point of it is mostly responsibility, security for loved ones and proper nurturing atmosphere which can be really challenging at times, such that the benefits like emotional support, happiness, affection is merely 20–25% if looked at an average house hold. Also no matter how the world interprets the meaning of marriage or family its done for the individuals desire. Having a husband/wife, daughter/son etc is mostly for the self fulfillment rather than actually be willing to let yourself be submitted to the other persons welfare, because had that been the case many family issues that we come to hear would have never risen.

Having such a support system who are always going to be there no matter what, and who have always tried to make sure you remain an important part of their lives, I think we should also keep them under the badge of ‘most important ones’ of our lives!

How can I help my family be strong?

Few days ago i made a post on the purpose of the family, today would like to talk about how the family can be strong together.

Just as we need a family for physical support, we need them for spiritual support too.

Part of belonging to a family means we each step up to help each other. While our first role in a family is as a dependent child, the part we play is never small—and it continues to grow in scope and importance as we mature.

It is our duty, even a sacred responsibility, to care for those in our family. In “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” God expressed that parents are “to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs.” We are also told that parents “will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations” (“The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2010, 129).

Whether parent or child, sibling or spouse, every one of God’s children has a role in taking care of one another. And like the pattern set by our heavenly family, we must provide and care for each other with love. We can follow Heavenly Father’s example by encouraging our loved ones in their trials, listening to their worries, cheering for them in their efforts and successes, and comforting them in their sorrows.

By upholding God’s principles in our homes, we can influence those around us. Many people take pride in their family names and the heritage of honorable people they represent. Others are setting aside past mistakes and seeking to fulfill the divine roles of family anew. No matter our past, all of us can have essential roles in nurturing and strengthening our family ties on earth into relationships that can link generations in love throughout the eternities.
