I cannot imagine what Mary and Joseph were feeling especially if they knew that Jesus was the Son of God. I mean, they must have been going out of their minds. Not only because it was their child but because He is the Son of God.
And they lost Him!
Once my kids were “ripped away” from me. They were only 2 and 3 years old. I knew where they were physically, but they were “lost” to me, not home with me, their mother.
They were restored to my home 10 days later, Praise the Lord. It was a frightful time. I don’t know if my feelings were like what Mary and Joseph felt with their “losing” the Son of God.
Putting it in perspective
When you think about it, God knows where all things are, all people, and even all promises. He hasn’t lost a thing.
Pray for the location of the lost thing and for the promises to come. If you have lost something, can it be replaced? Was it that valuable that it is irreplaceable? I ask you again, could you imagine losing the Son of God?
So, the next time you think about losing something think to yourself, at least I didn’t lose the Son of God.
God taught me some amazing financial lessons while I was a single parent. And I’m still learning though my kids are grown and out of the house. I wrote about my financial journey in God’s Prosperity.
Fear is a great motivator– to hold on to what you have, and never share it. Think about the man in the bible who wanted to buildanother barn to store his goods. Why didn’t he just give away the excess?

I’m a firm believer in attending church weekly. If you didn’t get a chance to attend this weekend, here is a sermon you can listen to.
I’ve been attending this church for about four years now and I have learned so much. I have also grown from participating in Celebrate Recovery that Pastor Steve mentioned. I graduated from this Christian 12 step program.
Also, I am a Stephen Minister. I attended 50 hours of training to learn more about listening to others as they process through the life they are living. And I was fortunate enough to be assigned to someone who helped me through a rough area of life.
Yes, a Stephen Minister can take a break when life hits them with a blow and be ministered to as well.
I have participated in 3 different Life Groups or Home Group/Core Group as some of you might call it. The wisdom that was represented in these groups. And the camaraderie that I experienced was great for me.
So these are some of the Ministry Helps and opportunities to grow at Ten Mile Christian Church that can help you in your journey.
I hope you will take a listen and stop by if you are looking for a church HOME.

Sunday, January 12th, 2020 sermon at Ten Mile Christian Church
Having just watched this movie from my local library, I watched people fight for what they want. What are you fighting for?
I think about my grand children’s education and I want the best for them and that they won’t get passed over for any reason. I homeschooled my girls and there was no such thing as a failing grade in my school. We just kept at it or changed the curriculum to fit their need(s).
This movie is about education. And it is also about passion. As I sit here nearing 60 really fast, I ponder my own life and wonder what I am passionate about! Anyone who meets me might get the sense that I’m passionate about people, relationships and specifically Single Parents especially Single Moms.
I want to encourage you dear single mom while you are considering your passion in life, while you are working that job or business and taking care of your kids, to not back down. Don’t give up.
Find your passion in life.
Know when to relax and take a break.
And know when to keep the ‘pedal to the metal’.
Don’t give up, dear single mom. Call me if you need to chat, need a little pep talk or just want someone to listen.
