To add to my entry from yesterday...I love the comment that when people are most unlovable it is then that they need to be loved the most. This is one of my favorites to remind people of. I know a young lady who was beat up by her boyfriend tha... Read more

Love, Love, Love

Friday, November 19, 2010      4 comments

My favorite scripture is "God is love." What I needed most was to know that I was loved. When I knew that God loved and accepted me, my life was totally transformed. The Bible also tells us that no one has seen God, but His love is shown if ... Read more

Been a few days since I was last here. I got caught up in some video games for a few days and didn't get anything accomplished to speak of. I am already feeling the pinch of the holidays believe it or not. I have never felt it so early. I kno... Read more

Our heart condition determines the path our future will take. Have you ever really thought about that? If you are teachable you will learn. If you fill your heart wth bitterness you will become bitter. Kind of a duh thing isn't it? There is a... Read more

Life and Death

Thursday, November 11, 2010      2 comments

On a talking theme lately it seems! Maybe it's because there is some work I need to do in that area. The Bible says a lot about our tongues. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Our tongues can also bring healing. A virtuous woman ... Read more

Tuesday, November 09, 2010      5 comments

Optimism is a way of life. It is not positive thinking per se, but the two go hand in hand. You cannot be an optimist with negative thinking, but you can be a positive thinker and not a optimist. They say that someone with a positive lifestyle ... Read more

Near to the Brokenhearted

Nothing smells better to me than bread baking in an oven. I remember in junior high how good the rolls smelled as they baked for our lunches. In 4-H that was the one thing I made that got more requests from my family than anything else. I enjo... Read more

Choose Wisely

Wednesday, November 03, 2010      3 comments

The company you keep will determine the person you will become. Take a good look at those you choose to surround yourself with. Then look at the people you attract. We tend to attract those like us and hang around the kind of people we are mo... Read more

Just Be Considerate!

I got a phone call from my daughter early this morning. She was very upset and almost to the point of tears. She calls her mama to feel better about her situations in life. She knows they won't change necessarily, but her attitude will or she... Read more
