Rising from the ashes with FAITH and tears

Starting over after a total loss fire is never an easy task.  2012 has been a year full of tests, trials, tribulations, tears, aggrivation yet it has also been a year full of faith, determination, prayer, love and laughter. We love GOD and we believe in helping ourselves, helping others, obeying GOD for we are his children. 

The journey has been shared in photo albums on facebook.  My hope is to inspire others, show others that with faith and determination it is possible, to encourage, to share so anyone seeing will know NEVER LOOSE FAITH and never quit.  

Wild Rags Place went on store vacation through the year while regrouping.  IT IS NOW OPENING BACK UP FOR BUSINESS.   No, we did not have insurance.  There was simply mortgage insurace (paid directly to the mortgage holder not us) and it was under insured.   Leaving...  Read More

Jesus Gives Strength God is Awesome

 

Lord Jesus when I thought I had not enough strength to endure, you showed me I was mistaken by showing my trama that I dealt with and remained strong through. When I thought my faith might not be as strong as it should be, you showed me my faith was taller than the tallest mountain, deeper than the deepest sea and wider than the skies. When I continued down the path on the journey in life i wondered if I was hearing you correctly and moving forward where I was supposed to be going, you showed me that small candle burning so i knew to keep going. I know that i have faced so much in my lifetime and i have not always maintained being strong enough for my comfort but I have been shown that i was and am a strong person and stronger when I must be, it is inside if I reach for it and hold on t......  Read More

Remember to Say Thank You

This time of the year we all think of what we are thankful of.  Truthfully, we think of it 24/7/365 here at Wild Rags Place.  I could have written todays blog on a number of topics, but today is my birthday so I chose to write this positive informative sharing blog.  My gift from GOD, my gift to you, sharing a positive reminder. 

The kids and I were blessed to have attended church this past Sunday and the service was beyond touching and amazing. 

What was the main reminder?  THANK GOD FOR EVERYTHING, including the bad.  Be thankful, grateful and faithful. 

  1. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
    In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
    1 Thessalonians 5:17-19 (in Context) 1 Thessalonians 5 (Whole Chapter)

Positive Thoughts + Positive Actions = Positive Reactions

Photobucket

Having, keeping, sharing a positive everything is a very important part of life. Plain and simple. Positive thoughts combined with positive actions help to create positive reactions. Although not always the easiest thing to do... our outlook on life, our treating of others, our personality, the manner in which we handle situations, the manner in which we address the situations we handle...has an impact on our lives and the lives of others.

Inspiration, Motivation and Encouragement

The Wild Rags Place family fully believe in GOD, karma, paying it forward.  We believe in taking chances, opening doors, closing doors (reality sometimes you just have to close a few), taking that leap of faith, the importance of a smile, kind word and hug. 

Today I am sharing a little motivation, inspiration and encouragement.  Something we all need from time to time.  Seriously?  Yes, seriously!  We ALL need it! I am no different and I sincerely appreciate addoway and the staff giving me a place to be for it is a blessing and I love it here. 

Hanging in my office is a framed newspaper page.  The sweetest, most innocent, strongest little girl is shown along with her story.  Look closely at this beautiful little girl and you will see she is wearing one of Wild Rags Place's du rags. 

We try to follow the...  Read More

I am human and not afraid

Kids Du Rags I am not shy but am a little aprehensive sharing on the vast internet. I have stood in front of groups sharing, large & small, 1 on 1, online, in person, telephone, email, etc. SHARING is EDUCATING & HELPING others.  [IMG]http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i415/Wild-Rags-Place/NeckSurgery.jpg[/IMG] In 1997, pregnant with my daughter, I was beaten nearly to death. Trauma to the head, neck, spine. Divorce, burying my Daddy, giving birth, then down hill from there. My prayers were to survive long enough to deliver my baby girl. I am human and not afraid. Singing When the body go completely crazy on a person, it takes its toll. Not knowing is bad, learning the diagnoses is winning half the battle. Most times, reaching the figuring it all out stage is more than most can bear. Another surgery I worked since the age of 13, active, 2 jobs at once most times, went to...  Read More
