I LOVE THE LORD AND THAT IS NO SECRET 



This started out as a lovely day. I went for a walk and watched the sun rise. I felt great and this navy wife had a vast amount of POSITIVE energy....That was until I went to my Local grocery store. (It will remain anonymous) I went into the store to get things I needed for my dinner.


I looked everywhere but could not find the Gumbo seasoning that I always use. I asked the young Lady at the counter and I got such a RUDE response it left me speechless.




 Oh, did I forget to tell you that it was only 8:00 in the morning. What was her problem? How do you DEAL with DIFFICULT people?

How can this worker possibly be having a bad day so early in the morning? I was at a loss for words and I did not ENGAGE in any negative exchanges with this young lady. Instead, I smiled and said a small prayer for her and immediately left the store. I decided to take my business and my HAPPY SMILE to another store in the area.

I love the Lord and I shout it loud for everyone to hear. Every now and then I come across people like the one I described to you that TEST my FAITH and test my patience. This young Lady was not very kind. Hopefully whatever was troubling her is now gone. All my friends and family know that I shake off ALL negativity and TRY to FOCUS on the good in all things. That is what I did. I prayed for that young Lady and turned the other cheek. What about you? Do you have a similar story that you would like to share?

I understand that it is in my best interest to love my enemies AND people that I may not particularly like. (Smile) This sounds difficult to some but it can be achieved. You simply have to find a way to block out the negativity. That negativity can cloud your sunny day and leave you in despair. SHAKE it off and continue having a fabulous day. Just remember to say a prayer. PRAY that God will help you to love that person the way HE loves them. It can be such a hard but NECESSARY prayer! So if someone tries to steal your joy this morning, shake it off and keep smiling. IT WORKED FOR ME! 











LET YOUR SMILE CHANGE THE WORLD. 





BUT DON'T LET THE WORLD CHANGE YOUR SMILE











AND THE GREATEST OF THESE...IS LOVE!

  1. I pray each morning that I will have a safe, happy and prosperous day. Along the way we sometimes encounter people with their own personal agenda and baggage. If you are not careful they will try to spew their ugly hatred and negativity right in your path...The devil is a Liar...Do not let anyone steal your joy or dim your light this morning. I will be praying for you.

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

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…

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 LETTER TO MY HUSBAND ON OUR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

                      MY DEAREST PATRICK:

When I first met you 19 years ago Patrick, I never imagined the journey we would take as man and wife. I never knew there would be so many COMPLICATED layers to being married... I never experienced this level of love until I married you Patrick. Our relationship has been far from perfect…And I know that we both have strong heads on our shoulder....But through all these years we have continuously put GOD first in our marriage.



HE GAVE ME HIS HEART


I remember the first time I laid eyes on you, the first date, the birth of our children, joining church and living this "AMERICAN DREAM"..... One thing I do know is that GOD must have a sense of humor. Look at us, living this Navy adventure, two imperfect people….A girl from the west side of Chicago who loves Southern cooking marries a Chef from Durham North Carolina..(SMILE) We’re complementary.... I wouldn't trade any of the last nineteen years for anything Patrick. I am so proud to call …

MY BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL TURNS 15 TODAY.....

MY DAUGHTER LYRIC TURNS 15 TODAY


What a beautiful day it is....Today is my daughter Lyric's birthday...

Happy Birthday to my beautiful, intelligent and phenomenal daughter Lyric Campbell who started walking at the age of 10 months and she has not stopped moving yet!










This beautiful "young woman" is going into the 10th grade and turns 15 years old today.






I can hardly believe my baby girl is growing so fast. She amazes me everyday with her intelligence and her sparkling personality...










She has given us so much joy and I am reminded of how precious our time with her is. We have raised Lyric to be A STRONG young lady.







I LOVE MY DAUGHTER LYRIC
I LOVE MY DAUGHTER LYRIC






She has a striking personality and I have so much RESPECT for my daughter and her individuality.










We have taught her to never be afraid to ask us any questions and to ALWAYS examine her own behavior and measure it up against God's word.









What a glorious thing to watch her grow and develop. Now as a teenager she is incorpo…

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…
