How Cheer Prevents Family Blowouts From Happening

What I can say makes me feel like I’ve been given a huge dose of cheer is my house oozing of smiles and laughter. It means that everyone’s getting along with each other, and loving one another. I have to admit, it’s more challenging than it sounds.

What I mean is, I’m not saying that having a home full of cheer is similar to going to court and throwing out ridiculous claims, like the K’s are doing with Blac Chyna and her ridiculous attempt to claim some fame. (They’ll dismiss that case before an attorney says Ray J, BTW!) But, there are certain steps that have to be made, in order to create a happy home.


First of all, there’s a mood that needs to be set! Our house has to be fun, for all of us to want to be there together. We all have a role to play, in being more loving and engaging with one another. It keeps things cheerful!

This takes effort, y’all. Second, with all of the different personalities thrown in the mix, disagreements are bound to occur. Of course, this makes it more challenging to get along!

Finding common ground is crucial. The reason is, it’s what we’ll want to focus on the majority of the time. A common ground also makes getting along and enjoying our time together even more appealing! For my family, it’s usually something to do with football – or food.

A Dose of Cheer

The third and final thing to remember, is that love’s patient and always kind. It keeps no record of wrongs! Love means we try to see a point of view different than our own. ‘Nuff said.


A cheerful heart is good medicine, but the crushing of a spirit will dry up the bones. Proverbs 17:22

I’ve felt down about things, then start questioning my purpose and what my reason for being here really is. Much as you probably do, I imagine. Because, we simply grow weary from fighting the constant battles. Consequently, it can get pretty intense sometimes – at least, for me it does. The past few years, after finally leaving my corporate America job, I’ve had times it has been difficult to find a desire for even picking myself up to go about my day. The stress in my marriage was also at an all-time high. Then, on top of that, my real estate career didn’t necessarily take off the way I was hoping. That’s the reason I gave for wallowing in self-doubt. And trust me, there were many days I did!

Then, I saw this light at the end of my struggles one day. So, I went to find my notepad to write, and got out my Bible. Thus began my new regular routine: reading my Bible, self-reflecting with devotionals, and taking notes on all of it. I did this daily, and I still haven’t quit!

It was a way to start over again, and let God go to work in my life – and He has, beginning way deep within all the way out. I saw how it began making me feel like I could be successful. Maybe not as the world views success, but successful nonetheless.. from following His will.

People – all people – aren’t ever going to be without flaws. And my husband’s one of those people. In his flesh, he wasn’t exactly what I’d call approachable, nor did he make it easy to talk to him. I guess, well..can you really blame him? He was completely freaking out about how he’d provide for us all!

With God, however, in His total perfection, I’m able to approach whenever or wherever. I can turn to Him, knowing that He’s more than capable to equip me with all I need. My life’s not’s His, and it’s all for only His glory!

First of all, I absolutely, unequivocally have a purpose. Sometimes, it takes a little digging to see it, though. My purpose is to bring God praise for all of the beauty He blesses me with! It’s that simple, y’all. Really!

Sure, there’s going to be other tasks along the way. Every single time I catch a glimpse of beauty though, my purpose is to give Him glory and praise! Amen.

We have no doubts about what we’re doing, or why. But it’s hard going, and we need your prayers. All we care about is living well before God. Pray that we can be together soon. May He who put all things together and makes all things whole, who made a lasting mark through the sacrifice of Jesus and His blood, sealing the eternal covenant; who led our Great Shepherd up and alive from the dead, now also put you together. May He give you everything you need to please Him; make us into what gives him the most pleasure, by means of the sacrifice of the Messiah. All glory to Jesus, forever and always! Hebrews 13:18-21
