- I will never speak negative about anyone in my family to anyone else.
- I will always try to find the positive in all situations and encourage them rather than join the world with the negative attitude.
- When you see someone, always speak kindly, you may be the closest thing to God that they may see that day..

Spoke a Memory..
I pray that you all had a great Father's Day.
My Dad is in Heaven with my mom,
and I miss them both very much..
But on my personal facebook page, I posted
a picture of my dad ~ Bennie G. Turner
and I asked anyone who knew him to share
their greatest memories of him..
His grand children commented
on the funny names he gave them.
Like my son Tyler was called Jabbo by my dad..
Dont ask me where that came from but
Tyler alway took it as his Indian name..
(My dad is part Cherokee )
The kids commented on how
Grandma and Grandpa always made sure that
when the kids came to visit, their favorite
foods were always in the cabinet, just waiting for them..
But the comment that touched my heart was from
a cousin of mine,
She said that she really only remembers seeing
my mom and dad a couple of time.
but when she was 7 or 8 yrs old
that my parent went to her parents house to visit
and my dad said to her,,,
Arent you a pretty little girl !
She said at that point in her life she felt
she was going through what we all go through,
that ugly duckling stage, and she was
feeling insecure and being teased about her appearance.
" I NEVER FOR THAT MOMENT"
and how it made me feel..
I learnt a few years ago just how mean the
world is, and how people just cant wait to
say something to bring you down,
to try and make you feel less than you really are.
The insecurities our children feel these day
can be unbearable..
And I personally do not want to be a part of that,
nor to be a player on satans team.
I want to show love to everyone that I come
in contact with,, whether I know them or not.
I am a Jesus Girl.
I told myself right then:
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MOMENT
WILL MAKES A MEMORIES FOR SOMEONE :
GOOD OR BAD..
So use every opportunity to bring a joyful memories to
I would strengthen and encourage you
with [the words of] my mouth,
and the consolation of my lips would soothe your suffering.
She comforts, encourages, and does him(them)
only good as long as there is life within her.
I have sent him/her to you for this very purpose,
that you may console and cheer and encourage and strengthen their hearts.
Debbie,,I am thrilled with the though of the day that
you see my dad in Heaven and can tell him of
how those simple kind words touched your heart
and I am go proud and grateful that God used
my dad that day to bring you love and tenderness.
And I hope that one day when I am in heaven
I will be able to see that I spoke
loving memories in to
someone as well..
