Verse of the day:

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Matt and Paul, We love you and you will live on in our hearts.  If your thoughts are with a loved one who’s passed this Holiday season light a candle in honor of your memories and their life.  Pray for my family as we have lost family and friends this year as we will pray for you that you may grow in the knowledge of Christ as he guides your hearts and minds.



God has Caused us to Prosper

God has caused us to prosper in spite of difficult  circumstances.  Through all the ups and downs and stresses of life, God has made us fruitful.  Genesis 40:51 “It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.”  In fact God often uses difficult circumstances to show us what we’re really made of and to cause us to come up higher but even more importantly for his glory.  He teaches us that in this life we will have tribulation, count on it!  But in the midst of all these things we are more than conquerors!

Romans 8:37 (NIV) says, No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”  All these things refers to trials, whether persecutions, or famine, or death.  Against these things, Paul says, “we are more than conquerors.”  God shows us that He can bless us while we have the problem, while we have the affliction, while people are hating on us.  Doesn’t matter who likes you and who doesn’t, you don’t need everybody liking you, only the right people!  Amen!!

If God be for you he’s more than the whole world against you.  Psalm 68:19 says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, the God of our salvation!”  And because God’s Word says so, believe that every day of your life is loaded with benefits.  Every morning, when you get up, believe that it is a day that the Lord has made, and rejoice and be glad in it.

Daily Benefits of God

  • Good Health
  • Our work which causes us to prosper
  • Home and shelter
  • Family and love
  • Recreation, root word, “recreate” we recreate our spirits in activities of leisure, and allow our minds and bodies rest from the consistent pace of work.
  • God’s Grace,  2 Corinthians 12:9  “My grace is sufficient for you,”

Happy Labor Day America!  With an emphasis on Labor, America is truly a great country indeed!  One thing I can say conclusively about Americans is We Work Hard!  I read a book recently that talked about how weekends are no longer a period of rest because people are now working 7 days week.  Being more interconnected through technology it seems the office is never closed.  The constant messages and email alerts from our phones have us constantly working.  If this is the case, you’re out of balance.  Work is a blessing!  It brings fulfillment it allows us to provide for our families.  However, God meant for us to have rest!  If he didn’t he wouldn’t have implemented sleep into our body’s system.  God himself rested. Genesis 2:2-3 “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.”

Enjoy the luxury of rest God intended for you to have.  You’ve earned it.  Although it’s an American holiday, you don’t have to live in America to labor and work hard!  Happy Labor day to all the Working People of the world.  Happy Labor Day to all SCW readers around the world.  We love you.

Verse of the day:

Happy Birthday Ron!  To my Beloved Husband You are Loved and cherished.

The Lord’s name is to be Praised!

Welcome Friends!  June 21st is the official start of summer!  Time for vacations, relaxation, and harvest.  The earth is in bloom.  Great is his faithfulness!  “Hold fast to your faith, and to that which is good in your life!” James 1:3  Because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. My prayer for you in this season is in Ephesians 3: 16-17 “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you are rooted and established in love.”  It is my pleasure to speak life to you and uplift you!  The Best is yet to come!

Celebrating Father’s Day

The importance of strong involved Fathers is undeniable.  A father is a blessing from God.  May you always honor him and let him know that you appreciate his presence in your life. Let him know what it has meant to you and how he has shaped your life.  It is a commandment from God to honor him. Ephesians 6:1-3 “Honor your father and mother which is the first commandment with a promise, so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth”.  If you’re reading this and you did not have an active father in your life like me, God has you covered as well.  Psalm 68:5 says that “God is a father to the fatherless”!  God, our passage says, is a father to the fatherless.  God has the care and concern and compassion of an adoptive parent.  He treats those who have been mistreated, those who have had no dads, as His own children, amen.  If you are reading this and haven’t been the best father, it’s not to late.  Pray and  take action to turn things around with your children.  So Rejoice always in the goodness of the Lord.  Have a blessed father’s day weekend to all.

We have a number of men followers as well that read SCW bless their hearts, and I want to give a special shout out for Fathers, You are significant!  Happy fathers day from the SCW family!!!!

To My Husband: You give our children someone to admire, respect and honor.  You are a fantastic father!  Happy fathers day to my faithful Husband. The kids and I have a great weekend planned.  It’s your weekend !!!!!

Thinking about what to get Dad for father’s day?  You can start with your acknowledgement and appreciation for all he does and what he means in your life.  Appreciation is better than any gift.  For tangible fun gifts for Dad we’ve got some ideas.
Dad’s have complained that Mom’s get all the good gifts and they’d like to have something they can actually use. Start with his interests.  What does he like to do?  Is he a golfer?  A fisherman?  A tech guy like my husband.  Or is there something particular that he “needs” at this moment?  Whatever interests him tailor your gift toward that.
  • Golf accessories
  • Tech gadgets (Best buy always has great deals for father’s day)
  • Man Crates, (this place is awesome for catering to the interests of men), whatever he’s into they’ve got a crate. One year for fathers day I bought my husband a grilling crate.
  • The Man store if he’s a tool guy you can’t go wrong browse,
  • Gift certificate to his favorite restaurant
  • Cologne – Every woman loves a good smelling man.
  • “Things remembered” (this is an awesome store for memorable gifts, awesome keepsakes he’ll always remember, you can have items engraved. Check out
Make the most of your time spent with the special men in your life be it father, husband, brother, uncle, grandfather, son, have a blessed Holiday weekend from SCW.

Memorial Day Holiday and the start of Summer

Time to unwind! Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of Summer! Millions of hard-working Americans take vacation time during the summer months.  Did you know that rest is a mandate in the Bible?  Exodus 33:14 “My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” God never intended for us to overwork and overwhelm ourselves.  He wants us to be productive.  However, the body must have rest.  I should take my own advice!  When I’m supposed to be resting, I’m thinking about all the things I need to do next instead of just living in the moment!

We shouldn’t let life just go rushing by without taking the time to enjoy our blessings and the people we love and those that love us!  Or simply just take time out for ourselves.

Mothers Day


She’s unlike any love you will ever experience! She is God’s blessing to you. An example of God’s love in feminine form.  Isaiah 66:13,  As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted.” There is a name for all that a mother does.  Such as clothe, feed, house, nurse wounds, both emotional and physical, cook, clean, celebrate your successes, lift you up when you need it, facilitate your needs and your wants, forgives, corrects, provides, dries your tears, encourages, supports, chasten, and it’s called Emotional Labor!

She gives of herself continuously, lovingly, unselfishly.  All women are not cut out to be mothers.  However if God has blessed you with one be it biological or otherwise Celebrate her!!!!  Be sure to tell her what she means to you because this is the woman God has placed in your life to love you. 

Unfortunately my mom has passed but I still celebrate her on Mothers Day to this very day!

The body passes but the spirit lives on!  “Honor your father and mother so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth” Ephesians 6:1-3.  May you have a Blessed mothers Day weekend!  To all the mothers who are viewers of SCW, You are blessed, Happy Mothers Day !

To Everyone who’s Mother has passed, Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

Happy Mother’s day Mom!! Pamela Newman 1956-2005, I love you, miss you! Looking forward to seeing you in Heaven! All my love, Your Daughter!

Shout out to all the Single moms around the world! You may be single but not alone! God is with you and your children! You rock single Moms!

So what do you ladies have planned for this Weekend? Visiting mom, taking her out, getting together with other Moms in your family to make a day of it? Getting your hair and nails done, shopping, going out for dinner, lunch, brunch, church,? Whatever you do it’s your day, you deserve it!  Relax and have fun!
