WALK OUT OF THAT DARK PLACE TODAY....




I wanted to write this note today because we all struggle with darkness......Do you ever notice how when someone turns the light out, you immediately feel a sense of anxiety and maybe even fear? Your mind begins to wonder and your fears and your anxieties start to surface. I submit today that the darkness gives rise to fear...ONLY FOR A MOMENT. You have to catch yourself quickly. Don't stay in the darkness too long..Shake it off, hold your head up and come out swinging.




We associate darkness with the unknown and forget all about the teachings from the bible. Paul used the images of the light and dark to speak to us about the nature of God and of our faith. We have to believe in our hearts that "THE LIGHT" makes visible what may be hidden in the darkness. But if we spend time in the light of God's word, when we consistently SHOUT OUT WITH PRAISE of this continuous PEACE and PRAISE that God gives to us. Our spirit will continue to grow. We will continue to blossom like a new flower under the sunlight....





Darkness and fear are sometimes used in the same sentence and people get stuck on that. Even though you may experience a short moment of fear...DO NOT BE AFRAID. Never let your fear paralyze you and keep you from moving forward. Keep moving forward and eventually you will come to a place where the light is visible....It will be so beautiful. When you emerge and come upon "your light", open your eyes and watch how "growth takes place in your heart". Not only a growth spiritually, but also you will feel more peace, more unconditional love than you could ever imagine. Your soul will be fed on a daily basis . So no excuses..Walk through this darkness that you are experiencing and LET YOUR SPIRIT GROW......




I have some amazing people in my life right now. I almost didn't see them because I too spent to much time "in that dark place".

God is so amazing though. He told me to get up, shake it off and come out swinging.



The people that enter your life are there for a reason, a lesson, a journey. You never know why at first. So start today living A LIFE OF INTENTION and allow those people AND those lessons to reveal themselves. There are people who touch you with their poetry, some touch you with their spoken word, or there are some with voices like an angel. My greatest joy has been people who have come into my life and TOUCHED MY SOUL....

You never know the power of your words. That is why it is so important to think very carefully before you speak. We all have a purpose, a calling or a path. Maybe yours is to light the way for others. God uses us all to administer the light for those who have yet to come out of the darkness....Start today with a new outlook and a new purpose and GET OUT OF THE DARKNESS...GOD BLESS.

  6. Its me again.....I had to write here. This story has caused me to pause and think about how far I have ccome from that dark place that I use to reside in...GOD has given me strength. God has given me his word. God has given me the wisdom to get out of that place. I realize now that even in darkness, I can do it, I can emerge from it as a overcomer. As I am continuing to walk in the SPIRIT, I have to keep pushing thru ...Thankful for the strength that guided me this far.
    Again, I thank you for this outlet to discuss him so freely and feel good doing it :O)

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG
BY LASHON CAMPBELL




God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

Most of us are struggling to pay the mortgage... Most of us are struggling to pay our children's tuition. We work hard and yet we are constantly coming up short.....
I submit to you today that all of that can change through the power of prayer and a positive attitude. I personally believe that prayer has changed the circumstances in our home.




I believe that communication, prayer and honesty within a marriage, is key to maintaining financial freedom.












Secrets tend to destroy a relationship.








So sit down today with your spouse and openly discuss all financial matters in your house. When you pray talk to God about your finances.




Here is a prayer that we use in our home.


Hope this can help to strengthen your family and enable you to be at peace concerning your finances:




PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH




Father God, you are the source of all my sustenance. So I come to you today in prayer and I pray for you toHEAR ME AND GUIDE MEin your infinite wisdom.

My spirit is full, but my wallet is always…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

Ways to get some EXTRA CASH in your pockets

WE LOVE EXTRA CASH 


I always say that I am going to have a garage sale. OK so maybe you have heard that once before. (I am a bit of a procrastinator) When I look around the garage there are tons of stuff that I could probably sale. Recently, the kids and I donated quite a bit of that stuff to the Salvation Army. I felt really good about that.



CHARITY

The Salvation Army is one of my favorite charities and I figured the stuff was just sitting around gathering dust. Giving back makes me feel better and I am teaching my kids how to save, volunteer, give back and honor God all at the same time. The reality is, we all can use some EXTRA CASH and the stuff laying around your house could be priceless to someone. 








How much extra stuff do you have lying around the house that you never use? You could arrange the items and sell them at a Garage sale.

Before you know it, you can turn that extra stuff into cash. So today as you are going about your day, why no…

A PROUD wife reflects on the MASTER CHIEF PINNING CEREMONY OF her husband CMC PATRICK CAMPBELL

Originally posted May 4, 2011



Congratulations to my husband Patrick Campbell who has just been promoted to E-9 a Master Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy.

 No words can express the love and admiration that I feel for him right now. I remember back in 2005 when I pinned his Chief anchors on, It was a special time for us as a family..….. When he was promoted to Senior Chief I cried as I thought of his career and his spiritual victories. Now in 2011, my heart beats a different beat as I will soon see my husband receive his new anchors for Master Chief.


                                  THE BEAUTIFUL CAKE


Over the years I have watched him slowly preparing for this day. The long hours and dedication has lead him into this promotion. I know that becoming a Master chief is only the beginning and this promotion will only bring out a new fire that I have seen so many times in the past…He craves it and silently he enjoys the challenge.

THAT'S MY HUSBAND THE NEW MASTER CHIEF
