A Recipe for Longevity

I thought this could really help those of you dating or thinking of marriage. These questions were on a morning show I watch and I wanted to share them with you;

*Know who you are, but realize you are ever changing and you need someone willing to evolve with you

*Are you a better person because of them (do they bring out the best in you)

*Are you a balanced couple (religion, children, interests, finance..,). Talk about your differences

*Can you have fun apart (if they only want to be with you and can’t seem to have a life aside from you that may be a red flag)

*Are you a parent or a partner (make sure that you are not getting involved with someone who needs you for unhealthy reasons)

*Do they have your back (are they supportive of you)

Communication is key in all relationships. Just some food for thought 🤔

If you believe, Be ready

As a teenager, I knew what I wanted, and did not want in a husband. I was raised in a very loving household, and I knew I wanted the type of love my “step father” had for my mother and her children. So when I gave my life to The Lord, I prayed for a husband who was just right for me! God answered that prayer, and gave me a man who understands Me, who truly cares about Me and My well being. It has made for a wonderful life together.

My advice to those of you still waiting, is to live life to the fullest as you wait for Mr. or Miss “right for you” to come along. Trust God and know, He has a plan for you and your life, especially when you are walking in obedience to His Word. His word says, “Every good and perfect gift comes from above” (James 1:17), and I know you will agree that a man or woman in your life who loves God, is certainly a gift! God wants the best for us! He wants us to prosper and be in good health even as our soul prospers” (3 John 1:3). So handle your finances well, take care of your body, eat right, exercise, have fun, and always look as though you want to be found😊. It could happen anyplace, at anytime.

Will ya just pick up the phone!

Single folks are on my mind lately!

When my husband and I were dating, way back when! There was no email and certainly no cell phones for texting. We talked on the phone for hours at a time. We went on dates, we spent lots of time together. We were aware if the other person was happy, sad, hurt or offended because we could hear it in each other’s voice or see it in one another’s face.

In this day of too much technology, the new way of dating for some, is full-out conversations taking place via texting, instant messaging, Facebook and Instagram. The problem is, if you can’t hear the sound of a person’s voice, things can be misunderstood or taken out of context.

This behavior must change if we as people (human beings) are to maintain the ability to simply talk or hold a conversation with one another. I’ve had this issue with friends and family. I have had to pick up the phone and ask if there was a problem because I wasn’t understanding a text message. If I were you and I was in a relationship, I would demand phone calls or face time if it is possible, instead of constant text messages. It will take you so much longer to get to know a person if all you do is text or Instagram. You may never really get to know them (maybe that’s what they would like).

Technology, although meant to better society, is crippling us. We don’t memorize anything because we have it at our finger tips, especially phone numbers, we don’t add, multiply or subtract quickly, and we are quickly losing the ability to communicate effectively.

Care enough to pick up the phone and talk to those who you say, you care about. Your voice is all it takes sometimes to make someone’s day. Stop avoiding having conversations. If you have a problem, be adult enough to speak face to face or at least by phone.

Please, don’t share so much on social media. No one needs to know your every personal thought or feelings concerning anything! Be in love, be angry or even indifferent but tell the person involved, not the world!
