LET'S EXTEND A HELPING HAND




THIS IS A REALLY TOUGH TIME FOR PEOPLE RIGHT NOW. THE ECONOMY, HEALTH CARE ISSUES AND THE UNCERTAINTY OF OUR FUTURES. THIS IS THE PERFECT TIME TO EXTEND OURSELVES TO OTHERS WHO MIGHT HAVE NEEDS FAR GREATER THAN OUR OWN....




I KNOW THAT RIGHT NOW YOU ARE FEELING YOUR PRAYERS ARE NOT BEING ANSWERED. YOU MAY FEEL LIKE YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY YOUR OWN CIRCUMSTANCES RIGHT NOW. YOU ARE GOING THROUGH SOMETHING THAT MAY HAVE YOU FALLING TO YOUR KNEES IN DESPAIR. MAYBE YOU HAVE JUST LOST A JOB. MAYBE FINANCIALLY YOU HAVE NO WAY OF PAYING YOUR OWN BILLS. MAYBE YOU HAVE SOME SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES. OR MAYBE YOU ARE DEALING WITH THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE.......

MAYBE AT HOME , AT NIGHT, WHEN NO ONE IS AROUND, YOU FEEL HOPELESS, YOU FEEL ALONE..... REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE NEVER ALONE. WHATEVER YOU ARE GOING THROUGH, WHATEVER YOU ARE EXPERIENCING IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE, GOD CAN GET YOU THROUGH IT. YOU HAVE TO TRUST IN HIM AND BELIEVE IN HIM AND OPEN UP YOUR HEART. DO NOT LET YOUR EXPERIENCES DICTATE YOUR FAITH.
 I REPEAT, DO NOT LET YOUR EXPERIENCES DICTATE YOUR FAITH.





YOU CAN FIND COMFORT IN HIS WORD AND YOU CAN FIND COMFORT IN THE HELP FROM OTHERS AROUND YOU. OFTEN TIMES PEOPLE TRY TO CLOSE THEMSELVES OFF FROM THE VERY PEOPLE THAT ARE IN A POSITION TO HELP THEM. DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE EXTENDING A HELPING HAND TO YOU IN YOUR TIME OF NEED. BUT INSTEAD, LEAN ON CLOSER TO THEM. THEY ARE SENT BY GOD TO YOU, FOR YOU, TO HELP YOU. REMEMBER THAT THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE AND IF YOU TRUST AND BELIEVE IN HIM ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. REMEMBER THAT JESUS DIED FOR YOU. LET HIM CARRY YOUR BURDENS...


LET GO. HE CAN DO ANYTHING, BUT FIRST YOU HAVE TO INVITE HIM INTO YOUR HEART. HIS LOVE WILL SURROUND YOU AND YOU WILL FIND STRENGTH WITH HIM. I SUBMIT TO YOU THAT EVEN THOUGH RIGHT NOW TODAY YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES MAY SEEM LIKE THERE IS NO HOPE FOR SOLUTION.... BUT..... IF YOU REACH OUT TO OTHERS WITH NEEDS GREATER THAN YOUR OWN.... IT WILL RELIEVE YOU OF YOUR OWN ANXIETIES AND ALLOW YOUR OWN BLESSINGS A CHANCE TO SURFACE. YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TODAY. NO ACT TO SMALL, NO DEED INSIGNIFICANT. 

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE BETTER TODAY. IF YOU SEE SOME ONE WHO MAY BE IN NEED TODAY EXTEND A HAND AND EMBRACE THAT WONDERFUL FEELING THAT YOU CAN ONLY RECEIVE BY HELPING OTHERS. YOU WILL END YOUR DAY WITH A NEW APPRECIATION ON LIFE, A NEW APPRECIATION ON THE POWER OF GOD, AND A WHOLE NEW WAY OF LOOKING AT THE MATERIAL THINGS THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE....GOD BLESS

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.

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…

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 …

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
