AKA, doing all things as unto the Lord...including weight loss, not for the sake of losing weight as much as being a good steward of this temple we're given, and learning healthy habits...It's because He is Lord in EVERY area of my life, not "ju... Read more
the Value of LONGSUFFERING
Friday, June 02, 2006      0 comments

Now commonly known as PATIENCE...but I think LONGSUFFERING is a better word. One suffers for a long time...endures pain for a long time...and yet can be kind, through the love of God shed abroad in our hearts. The trial of suffering is also capa... Read more
the Belief in HEAVEN
Thursday, June 01, 2006      0 comments

Specifically, a heavenly life after this...that what we experience here and now is only a part, the SMALLEST part, of what is to come. Jesus said He was going to prepare a place for us, and that if it weren't so, He would have told us. The sur... Read more

Time is one of the things we must steward."Manage" is the term we usually use, but it IS a matter of stewardship. I NEED to have time with the Lord - He is my Life, my reason for being, my purpose. If I neglect my relationship with HIm, all else... Read more
the Belief in the WORD of God
Monday, May 29, 2006      0 comments

It's amazing to consider, this piece of literature can be read in so many ways. But best of all is its veracity and applicability to our lives, and how ETERNAL it is - How God can quicken a scripture to you, to speak directly to you for a partic... Read more

I took my granddaughter Lakeiah to church with me today. She enjoys the opportunity to dance and to wave a flag. But occasionally she forgets WHY, and I have to remind her, it is not PLAY time, and it is certainly not time to be focusing on Josi... Read more
the Belief in the FAMILY OF GOD
Friday, May 26, 2006      0 comments

I love my earthly family. Dad's gone, but I have some fond memories, and I knew he loved me. Mom remains, and she's also a believer, as are my 3 sisters, Pam, Leigh, and Gwyn - and we're all getting together this weekend with Mom! I don't know i... Read more

Civic Pride is a form of stewardship. We're given dominion over the created world, but alas, many take that and abuse it by being careless with natural resources, or by literally abusing other creatures or even plants. F'rinstance, the vandalizi... Read more

Tuesday, May 23, 2006      0 comments

"God is in control" as Twila Paris sings - when my own plans seem to come to naught, I can rest assured that HIS are still in place. And while I do try to seek to know His will and move therein, I may misstep, get the timing wrong. But He gives ... Read more

Jesus taught us not only to pray asking for foregiveness but exhorted us to forgive, giving us examples in the parable of the wicked servant who did not forgive his fellow who owed him little after he had been forgiven an unpayable debt by his m... Read more

I remember in the days of being a Missionette leader of the Primroses, we spoke about being good STEWARDS...of time, talent and money. I've been having a problem with one young believer who is lacking in maturity, and hasn't learned this lesso... Read more

Friday, May 19, 2006      0 comments

getting together with other believers to talk about experiences in the Lord, and even just to talk about STUFF..it's a time of being knit together, of enjoying one another. How's that Bill Gaither song go? Something like..."Going together, enjo... Read more

Why do we do the things we do? Lord, I know I undertook this weight loss program on Dr's strong exhortation...but what keeps me going is my desire to be all YOU made me to be, to head towards that ideal. And I want to be a good example in all ... Read more
