Commitment and interest!

I recently read this quote and it really stood out to me!
Several things came to my mind. First of all, it got me to thinking about relationships! Of course!!! ;) have you ever been to a conference or get together and you can just tell that a person is INTERESTED IN YOU!!! You catch them checking you out from the corner of their eyes, you know those little side glances!
Maybe they always make sure to shske your hand and say hi! Or perhaps when your out to eat and fellowship they are always trying to make little comments to you! You think is this just my imagination or is this person really ACTUALLY showing an interest in ME???
Buuuuuuut NO, it's REAL! They really are interested in YOU!!! The problem tho with interest is that, that's all it is!!! They just have an interest in you!!! Yes, they may be checking YOU out, but there is someone perhaps a few rows over that they are watching as well!!! ANNNNND sooooo you think when you see them showing interest in you that it is going to work out buuuuuut THEN...
 the next thing you know, they end up in a relationship with someone else, and your like WHAAAAAT??? I thought they really were INTERESTED in me!!! And YES, perhaps they were indeed interested in YOU, buuuuuuut they were NEVER COMMITTED to you!!! Sooooo altho disapointed, you just get up and go on with life...weeeeellll at least I do!!! Like okaaaaaaaaay NEXT!!! AHAHAHA!!!
Its NOT wrong, when your unattached to anyone to be interested in more than one person. It doesn't make you a player, because your NOT commited to any of your interests. Before a commitment, they are just an OPTION while your seeking the will of God for your life. However, once you have made up your mind and you just KNOW, they are the one for you, that is when you begin to LOVE a person! Annnnnnnnd when you LOVE someone, they are NOT LONGER just an INTEREST to you, but you are COMMITED to that person!!! For better or for worse, NO MATTER WHAT, you LOVE THEM!!!
Then I got to thinking a little further on the matter and I was thinking about how that is the same way it is with our relationship with God! When you LOVE God you are commited to HIM and HIS WILL, no matter what!!! There are people that say they LOVE GOD, but they aren't commited to him, they are just INTERESTED in God! They like God, they like feeling his presence from time to time, they like knowing that he is there, buuuuuuut they also like the things of the world. They've got one eye on God and one eye on the world.
"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 6:24)
Sometimes they live for him, but they NEVER really make up their mind completely, JUST IN CASE things don't work out with God, they can always go back to their relationship with the world! Then when they're in the world, living in sin they'll tell you, oh well I STILL love God! I still think about him, one day i'll go back to him! Buuuuuuuuut NO, thats NOT LOVE, thats just AN INTEREST in God!!!
However when you LOVE God, you are commited!!! When YOU LOVE GOD, it does NOT matter if things go YOUR WAY, your going to LIVE FOR GOD!!! When you LOVE GOD it doesn't matter what trials and storms may come at you, YOU MADE UP YOUR MIND, you LOVE GOD!!! YOU ARE COMMITED TO HIM!!! You may have your hard times, you may feel down, you may cry your tears, buuuuuuuuut you made a vow, YOU HAVE A COMMITMENT TO GOD, ot matter what,
Think about it; are you really COMMITED to God or are you JUST INTERESTED in God???
"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God
 with all thine heart, and with all thy soul,
and with all thy might."

Biggest fan!!!!

I was reading on someone's blog recently about writing and they were saying that its true, "You are your own worst critic" I thought about that for a moment and then laughed!!! I think i'm the opposite of most people!!! With ME its more like
I am MY OWN biggest fan!!!
Hee, hee, hee!!! I know, WHO SAYS THAT??? Its TRUE! I LOVE writing and I LOVE MY BLOG!!! I LOVE the fact that I can make people smile and brighten their day!!! I REALLY DO!!! Buuuuut heeeeey before you say NOTHING about me being concieted, just remember THAT...
 I have THREE BROTHERS...okaaaaaaaaaaay!!! That means THREE MEN that do PLENTY of critiquing of me!!! Actually, my lil bro JOHN, who THINKS he is older than me and SOMEHOW still gets away with BOSSIN ME, well John told me once that feels like its his personal duty in life to KEEP ME HUMBLE!!! LOL!!! He said, "Its a HARD JOB, buuuuuuut someone's gotta do it!" AHAHAHAHA!!!
Okaaaaaaaaaay so I'm sitting here thinkin, yeah, i'm my OWN biggest fan...buuuuuuuuuuuuuut THEN I got to thinkin about MY MOM!!! She is an avid reader of my blog now annnnnnnnnnnd she has ALWAYS been right there believing in me and my writing! Like, yeah, there is NO WAY I could be a bigger fan of myself then my MOM!!! Then I got to thinkin about OTHER people that have cheered me and pushed me a long the way, specifically THE ABBOTTS come to my mind!!!
The moment I wrote my first story at 14, the Abbotts began PUSHING me to write! Somehow, in the middle of all my GRAMMATICAL errors, and trust me, it was ATROUCIOUS with the grammar and punctuation, some where in the middle of all that mess, the Abbotts spotted out that I a distinct ability and gift! Over again Sis. Abbott would tell me I had a talent from God and that I needed to use it!
Then I started thinking about GOD!!! I was like Mary, do you REALLY think your a bigger fan of yourself than GOD??? Like hello!!! Who could possibly believe in me MORE than God?!! More than my creator??? More than the GIVER OF THE GIFT????
Did you all know that God is really, truely, YOUR BIGGEST FAN in life?!?! There is no one that could ever beat his love and adoration for YOU!!! Yes, there are are times where he may be there with some CONSTRUCTIVE critiquing, buuuuuuuuut its ONLY because he wants to make you better a long the way!!!
 But just think about it you guys, GOD is YOUR FAN!!! He is rooting for you! He is cheering for YOU! If God had a refridgerator, YOUR PICTURE would be on it!!! If he had a wallet, your picture would be in it!!! God believes in YOU!!! He knows that you can do it! He knows that you CAN make it!!! He'll give you the strength when your weary! When you feel like you can't walk any further, he'll get behind you and PUSH you to go further!!!
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) So when you feel like giving up and you feel like no one knows who you are, just remember that there is ONE that IS your BIGGEST FAN!!! God might not have a fridge or a wallet, buuuuuuuuuuut WHEN HE WAS ON THE CROSS...

I'll just be a white crayon!!!

Sooooooooooo I guess after my post last Sunday about getting about as much attention as a WHITE crayon
 God decided to let me be GREATFUL for my white crayoness!!! HAHAHA!!! God's like, OH so you think your NOT getting enough attention??? I'll let you learn to be GREATFUL for that!!! LOLOLOL!!!
It started on Monday when the 50- 60 year-old bus driver picking up one of the kids I watch complimented me on the flower in my hair and told me I looked good! Not a big deal...kinda sweet actually, buuuuuut it went down hill from there and just got creepier and CREEPIER as the week went by!!! AHAHAHA!!!I'll just give you all a FEW of the inccidents that happened!!!
Soooooo Friday I'm having a yard sale and a Hispanic granfatherly like man comes walking up to my yard sale! He's lookin at all my stuff and he and its like A LOT of kids stuff!!! He's like WOW! Lotsa kids!!! I'm just like, oh yeah...he's like WOW you REALLY have  A LOT of kids!!! I'm like, oh well none of them are really actually MINE...I'm just the aunt!!! HE's like, OH so you have no kids of your own? Not really thinkin ANYTHING of this question at the moment, considering he's a grandpa in my mind, i'm just like NOPE!!! NO KIDS of my own!!! Theeeeeeeen the creepiness came in...AHAHAHA!!!
He's like sooooooo NO HUSBAND THEN???? I'm like still in the DENIAL stage of this conversation...LOL...Sooooo i'm like, ummmmm...loooooong husband! He's like, soooooo NO KIDS and NO HUSBAND??? I was like, uh yeah... he just stops what he is lookin at and just STARES AT ME...this is when my heart shaped sunglasses go OFF The top of my head and OVER MY EYES!!! I woulda gone to talking to another customer except he was the ONLY one there at the moment...OF COURSE!!!
He's like...WOW, NO KIDS and NO HUSBAND!!! (I guess it don't get ANY better than that eh??? I'm just a STEAL OF A DEAL!!! BAHAHAHA!!!) Sooooo he just straight up stares at me for a few more moments and mumbles a few more times...No husband!!! MJ, who is helpin me run the yard sale leans over and loudly whispers, Ummmm...I think he thinks your pretty!!! Like, really, YA THINK??? Thanks for helping the situation and confirming that for me girrrrrl!!!
So then I'm at Target, bought a REALLY nice long, dressy black skirt for church, (Check the skirt out HERE) Soooo i'm at the front, waiting in line to pay. There are two other people in front of me, people behind me, and the cashier greets the customers in front of me very professional like, then when I get up he looks at me and greets me with a "HEEEEEEEEY!" Sooooo i'm like thinking, ok do I know this guy somehow???? Cuz I could be wrong buuuuut this doesn't seem like a normal way for a cashier to greet a cuztomer!!! LOL
 Annnnnnd he is just blabbing to me about WHATEVERRR...complimenting me on stuff...Nice skirt i'm buying...He likes my sunglasses...I'm like okaaaaaaaaay...then I pay and he hands me my receipt, kinda lowers his voice and says, It was REALLY good meeting you today!!!" I'm thinkin like, ummmm...WE MET??? But I'm like like, Oh...yeah, you too!!! Then as I walk away I hear him greeting the next customer totally NORMAL..."Hello, How are you today?" I'm like REALLLLLY??? WHY ME???
Then i'm in the parking lot, getting ready to go home and a man comes over to the van, hey Ma'aam, I'm just wondering if you could spare me a few dollars to buy something to eat! I look at the man, he looks, altho GHETTO, totally HEALTHY and capable of WORKING, I'm just thinking like REALLY, I just worked out in the ARIZONA SUN all day today earning this money, I may be GHETTO buuuuuut at least I EARNED MY MONEY, and here you are a MAN, asking A WOMAN FOR MONEY to EAT!!! Buuuuuuut being the MAR BEAR that I am, and there always being that lil tug on my heart strings, I dug in my purse and got him out a dollar!
 He's like, THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH and GOD BLESS YOU!!! He takes the dollar and starts to walk away, then STOPS does a double take and says, WOW!!! Niiiiiiiice GLASSES!!! I'm like, Oh Thank you!!! Like thanks for the compliment dude!!! I mean, it cost me a WHOLE DOLLAR buuuuuut THANKS MAN!!! AHAHAHA!!! Cuz JUST what I needed to boost my self-esteem that day, a compliment from a man that can't even buy his own meal...YES...I'm impressed...just floating up on cloud 109 over here...NOT!!! Bahahaha!!!

Sooooo after all that this week I was like, Ok God its cool... unless its a NORMAL, GODLY young man, I don't need ANY MALE questioning my marital status or giving me compliments on ANYTHING!!!!  Until its TIME...
i'll just go back to being a white crayon!!! ;)

Recent thoughts on submission and obedience...

Listening to several different preaching messages on HOLY GHOST RADIO! One preacher was talkin about how Samuel told king Saul that obediance is better than sacrifice! He said WHY do you think its better than sacrifice? When sacrifice is giving up of something or dedicating yourself to something that is important to you? He said, because EVEN when we may sacrifice, our own will is STILL involved, when you just OBEY, its doing what your told to do, even if its NOT what you want to do! In other words, its dying out to your own flesh, your own will!!!
Another preacher was talking about, WHAT is the difference between obediance and submission??? Hmmmm...this is a GOOD QUESTION!!! I mean, yeah I kinda know, and I know that you can be obediance WITHOUT being submissive, but at the same time, what REALLY IS THE DIFFERENCE??? He said that obediance is YOUR ACTIONS, submission is YOUR ATTITUDE!!!I was like Ooooooo thats GOOOOOOOD!!! A SUBMISSIVE ATTITUDE!!! I LIKE THAT!!! It gives you clarification when you pray, "God help me to be obedient in my actions and submissive in my attitude!!!

Do YOU care???

Tonight I saw a really heart moving play about foster care and adoption put on by Family Christian agency. It just went into depth of the lives of some of these things that children really do go through! It ended in a heartwrenching, yet motivating way to PUSH us to do something, ANYTHING to help! They portrayed how there are ten-year-old kids that are still in diapers, NOT because they were BORN with a menal handicap, because of NEGLECT...emotional handicap... Our lil MJ was heading in this direction!!! Buuuuut THANK GOD for intervening! I can't STOP thanking God for what He did for my niece!!!  "When God Gives You A Home!"  
Sooooo at the end of the play, They showed a boy, that was aging out of foster care and with no direction in life he writes his caseworker/mentor a letter saying that all he ever wanted was a forever home...a HAPPY HOME...but he NEVER got it and he didn't know anything else to do, except to go back to the parents he was taken from as a child. Then it shows him going to his parent's home, they have a meth lab, the father takes off his apron and hands it to the now 18-year-old son, then he hands him a baggy of white powder, and he begins his own life in a world of drugs.
Then they talked about how no matter how hard you may try with one, you can't give up, you have to treat each child like there IS a hope! And it reminded me sooooo much of soul winning, as I said HERE, it can grow WEARISOME....buuuuuuut we can't give up!!! We can't, NOT get involved! We can't, NOT let it get to us...WE HAVE TO CARE!!! Verbal Bean says, "God doesn't care till we care!" LETS CARE YOU GUYS!!!
Obviousley, we can't ALL be foster parent's or adopt a child!!! Buuuuuuut WE CAN DO SOMETHING!!!! First of all we can PRAY!!! IF You can't do ANYTHING ELSE... SERIOUSLEY PRAY!!! Second of all, there are other ways you can get involved, through tutoring, mentoring or volunteering!!! I felt like I would really like to be a mentor to someone...I connect very well one on one with people, God gave me the gift of a BIG HEART that LOVES easily...I know I can do this!!! Buuuuuuuut if you can't get involved with any of those ways at this time, I have just one thought that comes to my mind...SUNDAY SCHOOL KIDS!!! We can LOVE THEM!!! Just do your part with the Sunday School ministry at your own church...LOVE THOSE KIDS!!!  Here below is something I wrote that I wanna share with you all...
Do you ever wonder? It was just one of those days at work as a nanny. I had spent all morning chasing the kids as they tore the house a part. Finally, it was naptime. I put the little one down first in his crib. Then I told Ella to pick out a short story for me to read to her before her nap. She handed me Max Lucado’s book called, "Just In Case You Ever Wonder." I rolled my eyes to myself, I had read this story several years ago and was not at impressed by it. However, I was tired and just figured I would get story time over with. I tucked the 5-year-old girl into her cozy little bed, then sat on the edge and began to read to her…
Long, long ago God made a decision- a very important decision. One that I’m really glad He made. He made the decision to make you. The same hands that made the stars made you. The same hands that made the canyons made you. The same hands that made the trees and the moon and the sun made you. So I am just sitting there like blah, blah, blah, whatever, totally not any more impacted by this story. It continues…
God made you like no one else. If you looked all over the world – every city in every house – there is would be no one else like you. No one with your eyes, no one with your mouth, no one with your laugh. You are very, very special. And since you are so special, God wanted to put you in just the right home. All of the sudden I felt something tighten in my heart…
God wanted to put you in just the right home. Where you would be warm when it’s cold, where you’d be safe when you’re afraid, where you’d have fun and learn about heaven. I’m starting to feel choked up… So, after lots of looking for just the right family, God sent you to me. And I’m so glad he did. I could hardly contain myself as I continued reading the story. It wasn’t the story so much in itself that was causing the emotional response, but because I know some children, that can’t relate with this story. I know some children, that don’t always have a warm place to sleep at night. There are some children that aren’t safe in their own home.

Help I'm a prisoner...

This reminds me of one of my favorite chapter books as a kid!!! "Help, I'm a prisoner of the Library!" Only this is, HELP IM A PRISONER AT WALMART!!!!


Omw I'm locked in at Walmart!!! The lights went out and were not allowed out!!!

Random thought...

Random thought before falling asleep last night, when you feel the calling of God, you know longer do things out of duty or obligation, you do it because you actually feel a pushing, a tugging, a pulling within toward that direction. You don't do it because you have to, you do it because you can't NOT do it...well that was my last thoughts before drifting off into dream land last night...Just thought I would share...not even a whole devotional, just a distinctive thought in my mind! Have a blessed day everyone! :)
♥Mary Frances :)

Am I mean?!?!?!

 Soooooooo my brother John tends to think, I'm MEAN!!! WHY???? Okaaaaaaaaay weeeeeellllll let me back up by giving you a lil history in this post! Sooooooo while Hanna was here we were talking about BROTHER'S annnnnd how when you have BROTHER'S especially more than one, you enquire TOUGH SKIN!!! Now I have THREE BROTHERS, sooooooo yeah I've heard it ALL!!!
Hanna was like, yeah, brother's just feel free to point out EVERY lil imperfection you have, like, your forhead is big and you got zits, etc..I'm like YEAH, my brother talks about my nose, which in MY OPPINION IS PERFECT, but aside from that I'm usually greeted by them with a, hey big momma or a, What up fatty!
Annnnnnnd me and Hanna were talking about how there is NOTHING you can really do about it, cuz if you SHOW that you care, they just do it MORE!!! Annnnnnd if you tattle your then called an adult tattler...soooooooo yeah, you jus suck it up like a big girl annnnnnnnd WAIT for the once in a life time...PERFECT COMEBACK.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllll FOR ME...that ONCE IN A LIFETIME, PERFECT COMEBACK came this past Sunday morning. After morning service, John comes over to me and with his usual, typical brotherly greeting he says, "What up FATTY?" annnnnnnnnd without even THINKING ABOUT IT...LIKE SERIOUSLEY...God practically just put the words in my mouth for me...sooooooo he says, "What up FATTY?"

Sooooo a couple years ago, when Kim was still living with us, Kim and I were babysitting at our house for a certain-not-gonna-specifically-mention-any-names-heh-heh-pastor's children!!! So their daughter is MJ's age... very mature, responsible little thing...Basically, this PK was babysitting ME AND KIM...bahaha!!!
So she was looking at my hair accessories and she see one of my lil hat pieces that i had been wearing.
She looks at it adoringly, with longing in her eyes and wistuflly says, I really want one of these like SOOOOO MUCH!!! She goes, buuuuut I don't think i'll EVER have one!!! Weeeeellll being the MAR BEAR that I am, the strings on my heart were being tugged and I was like, Oh you can have that one if you want!
She gets a slight glimmer of hope in her eyes, then the wistfullness returns as she says, no, I can't, mom and dad would NEVER let me wear it! I'm like, Oh, like they think they are to worldly or gaudy or what?! She says oh no nothing like that, my parents just think these things are...LONG PAUSE....DRUM ROLL PLEASE... My parents think they are ABSOLUTELY HIDIOUS!!! I'm like WHAAAAAAAAAAT??? Ahahahaha!!!
I'm like HIDIOUS??? She's like, yeah, I don't know WHY, but they do!!! Wow, I can't believe this.... I mean, if this was a holiness conviction i OF COURSE would have been completely respectful of it without any questions...buuuuut HIDIOUS!?!?! LOL I mean maybe on SOME GIRLS buuuuuut I sooooooo THOUGHT I ROCKed the lil hat!!! Sooooo being ME, i decided to make a snarky little comment, I said, Oh REALLY?! Weeeeeellll you KNOW, thats because your parents have NEVER seen these on me!!!
She pauses then sweetly and matter of factly says, ACTUALLY, your the ONLY person they have EVER seen them on!!! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT???? My mouth was HANGING OPEN!!! Kim was of course practically ON THE FLOOR IN COMPLETE HYSTERICS!!! And after my ten second shock wore off I joined her!!! WE laughed and laughed and laughed!!! Seriousley, it was SOOOOOO HILARIOUS!!!
Poor lil PK neverrrr could quite figure out WHY we were laughing sooooo HARD!!! Kim was like, I am soooooooo wrapping one up and giving it to her mom for a gift...just to see her reaction...buuuuuuuut in the end we decided not to...just in case this poor lil PK would get in trouble for TALKING to much!!! LOLOL
AnywayZ, I ended up getting over my lil hat faze and gave them all away...I mean, I was kinda getting over it anyhow, buuuuuuut the HIDIOUS comment definately HELPED!!! LOLOLOLOL!!! Oh maaaaaaaaaan ... I still laugh about that!!!!
"My parents think they are ABSOLUTELY HIDIOUS!!!" "... thats because your parents have NEVER seen these on me!!!"  "ACTUALLY, your the ONLY personthey have EVER seen them on!!!"
I just wanna be like, Soooooo BROTHER, tell me how you feel about my hair accessories... No really, don't HOLD BACK,
tell me how you REALLY FEEL!!! ;P

She is like UH NOOOOO...NOT MY TYPE!!! Soooooo i'm like OH OK! Im like well I don't think he is a bad guy...Selina is like, weeeelll I guess he ALRIGHT and Aurora, the YOUNGEST, then speaks up and is like WELL, I THINK HE IS OK!!!
I'm like OOOOOO Aurora thinks he is OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! Like ooooo...Selina is like, weeeeelll I guess he is HALF OK!!! AHAHAHAHA!!! So Aurora is like yeah, I think HALF OK TOO!!! Then this is the part that just had me cracking up ALL NIGHT LONG! She goes, half OK... LIKE...
