3rd Year WordPress Anniversary

anniversary-3

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 3 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!


Praise You, Lord, for 3 blessed years on gaillovesgod!
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
– 1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV

Complete in Thee! no work of mine
May take, dear Lord, the place of Thine;
Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,
And I am now complete in Thee.

CHORUS:
Yea, justified! O blessed thought!
And sanctified! Salvation wrought!
Thy blood hath pardon bought for me,
And glorified, I too, shall be!

Complete in Thee—no more shall sin,
Thy grace hath conquered, reign within;
Thy voice shall bid the tempter flee,
And I shall stand complete in Thee.

Complete in Thee—each want supplied,
And no good thing to me denied;
Since Thou my portion, Lord, wilt be,
I ask no more, complete in Thee.

Dear Savior! when before Thy bar
All tribes and tongues assembled are,
Among Thy chosen will I be,
At Thy right hand—complete in Thee.

Answering 30 Interesting Questions 3.4.19

God, You are so interesting in how You get me involved socially when I am trying to hide BEHIND the screen as much as possible. You take me out of my selfish mood, and remind how much others are trying to share with us, and how many would love to welcome the fellowship from anyone! We all need a little smile! We all need You! And You remind us that we all need each other! ❤

I love You, Father God!

Thank you so much Priya aka Zealous Homo sapiens of When An Introvert Speaks for the open nomination to Answering 30 Interesting Questions. I rarely do open nominations because it feels so greedy when the Lord has blessed me so much, but then He reminds me the reason He encourages me to do any of the awards and tags… to share!! A little of His love! And a little of His light. So thank you for the opportunity to bless others! 🙂 God bless you and your blog!  God loves you, Priya! 🙂


The 30 Questions:

1. What are your nicknames? What do you prefer to be called?
My family calls me Brenda Gail. My brother Charlie got everyone in high school calling me Sweets (They signed it all over my yearbooks). Some friends call me Stormy because it’s a nickname for Gail. I am blessed to have souls who call me mom, momma, momma Gail. And there are lots of other nicknames… a Child of the King… His! ❤
However, as you see in my blog all the time, I go by Gail aka gaillovesgod. 🙂

2. How often do you doodle? What do your doodles look like?
Anywhere from several times a day to several times a week. Most of it either comes out as just scribble or actual poetry. God is so generous to whisper!

3. What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep? Toss and Turn? Try to get up and do something productive?
I talk with God, read my bible, recite verse, write poetry, or even sing hymns to Him (sometimes singing myself to sleep 😉 )

4. Do people consider you as talkative or quiet?
Depends on who and when you ask. I am mostly quiet, but I can be very talkative.  Jesus wants me to tell others how much He loves them. Sometime I could endlessly talk about the sweetest love I have ever known. Sometimes I have to pray for Him to give me courage. Sadly sometimes I have to ask for His forgiveness and pray for those I failed to share with!

5. What makes you cry?
Disappointing my Jesus. 😦 Seeing Him mistreated. 😦 Seeing things that break His heart. 😦

6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Seeing people intentionally hurt one another

7. How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror?
Just enough to make sure my teeth are clean, and to make sure it looks like I at least tried to comb my hair (and put it out of my eyes )

8. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?
My dad used to call my soda… cold coffee. I literally thought that coke and coffee were the same thing… just coffee when hot and coke when cold. I use to tell my dad, “Yuck! Who would ruin their coke like that??” LOL

9. What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
A “guilty” pleasure implies a wrong or sinful, or at least harmful pleasure. I have a hard time resisting watching Law & Order… especially the earlier ones and the SVU series. I am NOT a crime buff, a forensics junky, and hate gory scenes! While watching can actually help me some days, it can also pull me away from everything on other days.

10. Who performs the most random acts of kindness out of everyone you know?

❤ ❤ My Jesus!!!!! ❤ ❤

11. How often do you read the newspaper? Which sections?
Every few months or so, unless looking for something particular… like obituaries.

12. Which animal scares you the most?
Snakes are right up there.

13. Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on?
Again it depends on when and the situation. I DETEST letting something get the best of me, so I prefer head on. I usually say, “Bring it on.” If it’s gonna kill me to do it… then let’s get it over with. However when it comes to confronting for or on behalf of others, to pray and follow God’s lead is the best thing to do. I try to pray and follow either way!

14. What was the most recent compliment you’ve received?
That I send sweet and encouraging messages. God is so loving and kind to me! ❤

15. What question are you tired of hearing?
Where is God when you need Him? (Usually said while “celebrating???” being able to kill babies in and out of the womb, while welcoming guns but not God in school, while fighting for one’s right to speak their opinion in school but suing anyone who wants to exercise their right to pray in school (even just silently sometimes), or while secretly paying a sex trafficker to find a “piece of fresh meat to rape” (the younger they are, the more they’ll pay) 😦

16. What is the strangest thing you have eaten?
Sardines!! My dad tricked me into trying one! YUCK! It tasted like I had stuck my tongue in a can of oil, and I couldn’t get it off! 

17. Do you have a whole lot of acquaintances or just a few very close friends?
God is so kind and generous to bless me with an abundance of friends, but I am ashamed to say I isolate myself a lot. (Said for any of my friends who have not seen or heard from me so that you do not think I don’t consider you a friend! Me and God love you!)

18. Do you have a catchphrase?

God loves you! ❤

19. What’s your all-time favourite town or city? Why?
Heaven! That’s my home! ❤ I am so homesick!!!

20. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to?
Gail 😉 Because it is not my first name, it would simplify things…lol.

21. When was the last time you lied?
Honestly… That’s between the Lord and me. I try to be as honest as possible. Discretion is lying to some people, however “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” – James 5:19-20 KJV

22. What’s something that amazes you?

❤ ❤ The love of God!!!!! ❤ ❤

23. Would you rather be the first person to explore a planet or be the inventor of a drug that cures a deadly disease?
Absolutely invent a cure for deadly disease!  (but on a day off I would explore whatever God wants to show us! His artwork is so amazing!!)

24. What is your favourite amateur activity?
Blogging or writing poetry I guess is amateur… but if it’s for, from, and about God that is all that matters! People need the Lord! And they need to know how much He loves them! ❤

25. What was your first thought when you woke up this morning?
I need to hurry and change out my pajamas to make it to my appointment with Dr. Buzz’s office. I am soooooo tempted to just wear them, but I don’t want everyone to think I’m crazy. I save that for my family and friends. 😉 (Thank You, God for my new comfy pjs I got for Christmas! I finally got to wear them! 🙂 )

26. What is your favourite song (at least at the moment)?
Take My Life and Let It Be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee hymn

27. List someone you know, and describe them in 5 words.
< 3 Jesus… loving, merciful, obedient, Holy, longsuffering! ❤

28. You can select one person from history and have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you select and what would the question be?
God… why would You even make it an option for Your precious and only Begotten Son to leave You for even a moment to come and suffer such agony, pain, cruelty, torture, mockery, when You knew it was my vile and filthy rags that put Him there? I know You say it was because You love me, but how can You love me after all that You have seen me say and do… with my life… my body… my words… and my sick selfish nature? Why…WHY would You allow me to have anything to do with something as precious and Holy as the blood of Your Son! Jesus is so innocent and pure! He is Holy! Thank you for loving me enough to send Him! To even allow it. Help me to have the courage, the strength, the boldness that You say we need to have to come to Your throne! I want to be as clean as YOU make a life!!!!!!!! NO ONE CAN SAVE AND CLEANSE LIKE YOU! NO OTHER LOVE! THANK YOU< JESUS! ❤

29. Which celebrity or artist do you resemble the most?
Nowadays I have no clue, but when I was in my 20s I use to constantly be confused with a local reporter we once had in our area that set her boyfriend’s house on fire.

30. What do you want me to know?

❤ God loves you! ❤

It was a blessing answering these questions! I hope they bless you!

I nominate everyone reading this to write your own answers to these questions.

Yes YOU!! 🙂

You won’t be making it up. God did allow me to nominate you!
Share! Enjoy! Have a great time answering! God loves you! ❤

My 7 Favorite Things Tag 2.26.19

“So shalt thou find favour and good understanding
in the sight of God and man.”

– Proverbs 3:4 KJV

“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
– Proverbs 31:30 KJV

These are just a couple of Your verses that You have me thinking on with Carol Anne of Therapy Bits nominating me for the My 7 Favorite Things Tag!  Thank You for her thoughtfulness, Lord.
Bless her and her blog.

Thank you, Carol Anne, for thinking of me with the nomination.
May God bless each one of you! He loves you each! ❤

The Rules:
1. Link back and thank the person who tagged you.
2. Link back and thank the blogger who started the tag.
(I don’t know who this is. In trying to find out, I see some have stated, “That was Beth.” However, I am uneasy with linking her page due to difficulties in verifying this.)
3. List and picture at least seven of your favorite things.
4. Tag at least seven people.
5. List the rules.

My 7 Favorite Things! In no particular order!
(This should JUST 7 of my favorite things because God’s blessings are too many to count. They are infinite! The are a delight to share and praise!)

12374990_1218752768139585_1140565011412187984_o1. I love that Jesus came for me! That little baby in the manger came to give His life for me, to save me from eternal death, and to give me eternal life. He did it for you too! And just in case you do not know it, He’s fine! He is risen! He’s alive! And He went away to prepare a place for you and me! Jesus loves you and me! ❤
“For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” 
– Romans 5:10 KJV

bbs4.22. I love that God knows me by name… and everything about me… and He STILL loves me! For who I am! And I am His! ❤ I am so eager to get to heaven and learn my new name that only HE knows!

43950423_10217158636227537_4643250897021829120_n3. I love talking with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in prayer. And even more so while giving Him the reverent respect He deserves… kneeling. I used to love actually being able to lay on my face as they did in the bible (it’s called prostrate prayer) when I was physically able. But no one knows better than my Jesus that I am blessed to have finally been on my knees again recently for the first time in years! Praise God for doctors and therapists!

IMG_20180518_172515 (3)4. I love God’s Holy Word… aka the Holy Bible. I personally prefer using the KJV (King James Version), but the Lord can use what He will. It is His will, His spirit, and His personal relationship with each one. God’s love letter is the most incredible and thoughtful message to each one of us. Everyone is always saying I wish there was an instruction manual on life… THERE IS! We don’t always get the answers we want, and sometimes we have to learn the hard way that there is not a set answer for everything. But God is there! Waiting to meet you! ❤
“O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.” – Psalm 119:97 KJV
I have favorite verses ALL OVER THE BIBLE!


5. I love writing poetry and stories. God blessed me with this love at the age of 9, just after I was saved but was in foster care. It has helped to save me from myself. You can check out some of those writings on my poetry blog… gaillovesgodspoetry. My favorites are those that magnify and glorify Him… whether in the testimony He created in my life, or to write about the things He gives me… like trees. I am so fascinated by them. 🙂

6. I love ladies bible studies… especially with Keitha leading them! I am grateful to God for her heart for Him. She keeps it real. She keeps it about God. And God keeps Keitha’s personality all over. HE gave her that gift of encouragement and leadership. Thank You, God, for each time You have allowed me to attend… whether just a week or a whole series!
Me and God love you, Keitha! ❤

44826417_2219240331665195_9003911818053156864_n7. I love my gift from God… my son Anthoni (aka Inner Man Theatre). He has been a blessing from the day he arrived. God has amazed me, saved me, led me, taught me, and loved me through my son. People completely underestimate what children can do to save someone from their own lives. If you’re single, underage, in a difficult situation, abandoned, or in anyway blessed with a pregnancy that seems ungodly remember… ONLY GOD CAN GIVE LIFE! That innocent life may be the very rescue that you need. God has sent that child FOR YOU for some reason. He loves you! ❤

February: What’s On Your Heart Tag 2.23.19

“And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God,
and into the patient waiting for Christ.”
– 2 Thessalonians 3:5 KJV

Oh my dear dear Lord! How incredibly loving You are to let me know I am what’s on Your heart through VICKLEA (aka Vickie) of Vickie’s Book Nook and Meditation Corner who has nominated me for the February: What’s On Your Heart Tag. How blessed I am to have a God who loves me so much, and allows me the blessing of a sweet friendship with my dear sister in Christ! Thank You, Father, for Your never ending outpouring of love. Bless my sister, Lord, and each one You allow me to encourage through Vickie’s thoughtfulness.

Thank you, Vickie, for your kindness, and for allowing me opportunity to share with someone else the whisper of God’s love. That’s just like His great love to want His children to know they’re on His heart…. just like you are! God loves His precious child! ❤


Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you to participate.
2. Link back to the original post.
3. Attach an image that inspires you regarding the month’s theme (or use the original).
4. Talk about what this month’s theme means to you.
5. Answer the questions.
6. Nominate one or more people to participate.
7. Enjoy the rest of your month.
For February, our theme is called: What’s on Your Heart


What’s on my heart for February’s heart theme:

 

February is my dad’s birthday. He would have been 75 this year. Unfortunately, we spent February of 2005 trying to bury him. By the grace of God, he has been living with Jesus for 14 years! I have been missing him so much lately. I was a daddy’s girl, and he worked so hard to take care of his family, including being such a loving grandfather to my son.
The pictures above are:
1. Our first family picture.
2. One of my dad’s favorite pictures at one of his favorite fishing spots. With his left leg propped up, it looks like he has one leg and a wooden leg.
3. The last picture of my dad just weeks before he went into the hospital and never came home. My brother Charlie is in the picture with him, but in 2007 Charlie joined my dad and Jesus.

The below pictures are:
1. My dad’s obituary picture.
2. His footsone showing that he served in the Cuban Missile Crisis. He was on one of the ships held hostage.
3. The tombstone for both my mom and dad. Mom went home to Jesus in 2015. I have this picture in my cell for when people want to see a picture of my parents. It’s the last one of them together.

 


The Questions I Am to Answer:
1. Do you believe in love at first sight?
No. Like Vickie, I too believe love is a choice. One that should be wisely made through prayer and getting to know someone one.

2. Do you believe in soulmates?
I believe the Lord can bring two people together.

3. What’s the first thing you notice about a person?
How they carry themselves and/or behave…. looking for fruit or the lack thereof.

4. What’s your ideal date?
Spending time talking about the Lord, His word, HIS LOVE, sharing testimonies, favorite hymns, etc. Even a church date or Christian event would be awesome.

5. What traits do you look for in a friend/significant other?
A genuine love for Christ and His children.

6. What are your thoughts about being friends with an ex?
If we are all to love one another we must get along, and if it is required in work settings, among mutual friends, family friends then one must. However, when one is married and it is not required or causes a problem in a relationship, our God given relationship takes top priority. Life is not high school (thank God). It is about honoring God, not whatever is popular.

7. If you’re a believer, when did you give your heart to the Lord? If not, what in life keeps a bounce in your step?
When I was 8 years old knelt at the altar waiting on my mom who had taken us to a new place (church) among a lot of screaming people, and left us in the pew alone to go kneel and pray. A dear soul named Molly came and asked me if I knew what I was doing. When I told her waiting on my mom, she asked if I knew what she was doing. When I said no, she told me Mom was praying to Jesus, and asked me if I knew who Jesus was. When I said no, she told me of this person who loved us all so much that He died to save us from our sins. My first comment to her was, “You mean there’s an adult who doesn’t hit you… even when you deserve it???” I was so heartbroken for this Jesus, and what we had done to Him… what I had done to Him. While it would be years before I understood fully that I did genuinely give my heart to Him that day, I am so glad I did… and that a relationship with Jesus is loving Him because He first loved us! ❤ Now He owns my heart! ❤

Liebster Award 12.31.18

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
-Matthew 6:19-21 AKJV

Lord, You have sent me a treasure from You that I will be able to give back to You… a crown to lay at Your feet. That is how I see Your whispering to Stu of Something to Stu Over to nominate me for the Liebster Award. Not because of the material value that can be deleted, and seen as something to brag about. This blog is Yours, and ANY glory it receives is ALL YOURS!
Thank You for the fellowship with my brother in Christ. Bless him in his blog, his ministries, his family, and in his own personal walk with You.

Thank you, Stu, for thinking of me with the kind nomination!
Thank You for the opportunity to share with others!
Thank you for allowing me another opportunity

disappointing my Jesus 😦

to give my heart and soul to Jesus ❤

domesticated
4. What was your favorite toy as a child?
I really don’t remember any toys other than coloring books & crayons my granddad use to buy me, and a small Pillsbury Dough Doll that the head came off of but would still do the famous giggle if you pushed his belly.
The doll thing was strange and I really wasn’t into dolls, so I’ll go with coloring books & crayons.
Oh wait! The Lord is reminding of a jump rope I earned when I was 6 years old by memorizing John 3:16 for a church bus driver! Mr. Farlough challenged me to learn it and I knew it by the next time he picked me up. It would be a few years before I really understood it, but it stayed with me for life!

spending alone time with God ❤

Versatile Blogger Award 11.27.18

” Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.”
