To the Graduates of 2015

I have so many things I’d like to tell you.

Like always brush your teeth, dental hygiene is so important.

Always be nice to others and try to smell good.  Those around you really appreciate that.

Hug people you love. (you never know when they will be gone)

Look people in the eye when you speak to them.  (not at your phone)

SMILE A LOT!

Ok, physical things like that are so important, but the MORE important things that I want to tell you are mental and spiritual.

You have to mentally prepare yourself for life.  Stay mentally focused on the good you can achieve.  Imagine yourself successful!  Don’t just think it might happen, know that you are going to ROCK THIS LIFE!

I know there are days (many days maybe) you want to just veg out and watch Netflix all day, but don’t ever make that a lifestyle.  You are made for more than pajamas and 5 seasons of The Walking Dead.  You are!  Don’t aspire to be a 30 year old couch potato that still makes your mom do your laundry.  Yes, there are days to rest and recharge and watch Netflix all day, but don’t get addicted to those.  You are made to be AWESOME!  Get up, get out and go be AWESOME!

In order to stay focused on the good, you need to always remember WHO made you.  God made us to be His.  He didn’t make mistakes or oopsies…HE MADE A WONDERFUL CREATION –THAT –IS –YOU!  Allow Him to guide you.  Allow Him to council you and protect you. You have to listen and obey.  The more you do that, the better your journey will be.  I sure wish I had listened to Him soooooo much more when I was your age.  I wish I had discovered the power of prayer earlier in my life than I did as well.  I am telling you this so YOU can get on that NOW… and not later.   It won’t make your life perfect, but it will make your life so much better.  Your perspective will be much brighter and your outlook will be much clearer.  (I want to belt out: I CAN SEE CLEAARLY NOW, THE RAIN IS GONE… I CAN SEE ALL OBSTACLES IN MY WAY…)

To the Graduates of 2015:

I have been blessed by your presence in my life.

Whether you were in my class or not…

I am so proud of you.  I know you are going to keep doing great things.

Go be AWESOME!

Much Love, Mrs. Clawson 🙂

p.s. We can be facebook friends now!

Life is Uncertain…

Life is uncertain…BUT GOD IS NOT!

The last two weeks I have battled laryngitis.  I’ve had a head full of snot, a chest full of congestion and a cough that catches me off guard at times and makes me cry out to the Lord.  I have been pitiful.  There was a day of fever that made me remember how horrible those things make your body feel.  I’ve taken medicines, looked up home remedies, bought stock in throat lozenges and drank more hot tea than I believe I ever have in my entire life.

I do see a light at the end of the snot tunnel.  I have seen it flicker off and on the last few days especially.  This bump in the road has not hindered me from going on our annual spring break trip, but it has silenced me many times.  ((Maybe that is a good thing!))   It has allowed me to draw closer to my God…it has reminded me that HE IS IN CONTROL.  Something we should all keep in mind ALL THE TIME no matter what is going on!  ((Screaming this, in my mind, of course, to myself!))

God knows what I need.  He knows I long to sing praises to Him.  In the past, there have been times I shied away from singing, because for some reason I think people don’t want to hear my voice again.  I have allowed the devil to whisper to me that I’m not good enough.  I let that stinky little nasty get me thinking less about my confidence.  Really, though, I don’t want to be confident in myself.  I want to be confident in my GOD.  I want people to see me singing and not see me–AL ALL!  I want them to see HIM.   Losing my voice –THE ONE GOD GAVE ME–has made me realize that I should never allow the devil to make me think twice about using it for GOD.  I should be in the front of the line hollering, “Pick me! Pick me!”

I am due to sing for a women’s event this Saturday.  That is about 45 or so hours away.  No matter what my voice or head feels like the morning of that event, I’m getting up and getting ready for what GOD HAS IN STORE!  I know He has a plan!  There are two awesome gals speaking at this event–two of my friends.  I am so blessed to have friends who LOVE GOD.  I know God will rock this church we are going to through us, because HE IS IN CONTROL.

Life is uncertain—voices crack, bones ache and heads spin, but GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL.

Life is uncertain, but GOD IS NOT.

I’m including one of the songs I’m singing this Saturday, because I truly believe that this is my life song.  This is the song GOD wants me to hear all the time.  I gotta be still!!! –AND LET HIM DO HIS THING!  God is moving all the time–He will move this Saturday no matter what!  Thank YOU God for being CERTAIN.
