BORN WITH A VEIL...

By the time I was thirteen, I pretty much knew what I wanted and needed to do,
Much of that was due to a certain amount of precociousness,
A great bit of circumstances,
And a the way God made me,
I can recall when I was in eighth grade,
And walking home from work, yes work...
Someone who was a couple of years older than me wallked along beside me,
She said,
"You sure are sophisticated for a thirteen year old..."
Being so young I felt insulted,
So I asked her what she meant,
She told me that I carried myself like a much older person and didn't act like thirteen year olds,
I smiled at that then and I smile now,
Because there has never been anything typical about me,
Being 'born with a veil' as they say,
I have always been a bit odd...umm different,
God blessed me with the ability to see and know things,
Sometimes that was good, other times not so good,
It made me able to always be able to see what I needed to do to live a certain way,
But it also made me obstinate and overbearing in trying to get others to see it the way,
I felt they should...
It all seemed like common sense to me,
And I KNEW, that I would see them mess up,
And that later I would try to fix it...
Well,
Just as God provided me with it,
He is now taking some of it away,
He is teaching me that I am ultimately only responsible for me,
My kids are grown and their lives are there lives to live as they live,
And that while he has given me a grandchild,
Who I adore,
That is what she is,
My grandchild,
And I have to step out of way and let the parents parent,
OH what a relief it is to finally understand,
That I can use my talents in other ways,
And that the only person I am beholden to is HIM,
and that the only person I am responsible for is me....

BE BLESSED!

And isn't that such a wonderful feeling? Why didn't I realize that a long time ago? It would have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. LOL

Oh, with age comes so much wisdom.

Good Morning My Sister!

The gifts and callings of God are without repentance. Romans 11:29 Whatever He blesses us with He does not take them back. We are held accountable for what we do with them………
All I can say is thank you Father for allowing me to get older and wiser each day.
Take Care Ladies,
Be Bless and know you are highly favored.
