Day 19 - Pledge of Peace

When my daughter was little I taught her how to write her name by tracing.  So, I was so blown away when she suggested I perfect my drawing skills by doodling with dots!  If you click the photo you can see what I call my dot doodling. :)

My nephew has been living with us this school year and it has been a trying time for my hubby, our daughter and myself.  He's a beautiful child who has no love for himself.  So, he has decided that he doesn't need an education and he can hang with ungodly kids.  I even think he may not believe God exists.  I've talked, cried, prayed, encouraged and hugged him each and every day.  Nothing so far has reached him.  My sister has given him permission to go back home and that's where things became worse.  I have always battled with issues with my lungs and the stress of everything that has taken place since hurricane Katrina has increased my issues.  As my nephew heads back to the root of his troubles I ask you all to please uplift him in prayer.  Please pray that I will stay on my journey of nurturing myself, because it is imperative at this point in my life.

5 Things I Love About Myself: 1. My heart  2. My voice (I use it to inspire others who are disabled like me)   3. I woke up to God's will for me  4. My brown eyes (I'm fascinated by eyes)  5. My thirst for knowing God and the real ME

Today's Intentions: I intend to light a scented soy candle and go through my day putting uplifting mail together for my chemo buddies :)

Today's Kind Act: I will do breathing exercise to strengthen my lungs and I'll dance for 15 minutes to strengthen my body.


  1. Praying for you and your nephew.

  2. Beautiful plan! Keep connecting the dots....

  3. Beautiful plan, prayers for your nephew and your family. You are number 1 and have to take care of you to be good for anyone else. I love your list. I have always wanted big brown eyes. and I have wanted long eye lashes. Have a great day, I am feeling better, thanks for your kindness. take care.

    I am praying for all of you, that your strength and lung capacity will increase as you spend time exercising more, and also for your nephew. God never allows those planted seeds to go very far. Praying that He will continue to pursue him until he meets God on his own terms.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  5. i will pray for your nephew, and your whole family.
    i love that you are doodling and dancing. ; )

  6. I love your Intentions, there is nothing more calming than scented candles. As far as your nephew, the only thing you can do right now is pray and stand on God's Word (and yes, I will lift him up in prayer too). Maybe the time spent with you and hubby left a positive mark on him. Maybe once he goes home your nephew will thirst for something more solid like his education and God. Focus on strengthening your body, continue to bind him in prayer.


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
