    Good Words to Live By

    Saturday, November 22, 2008, 11:10 PM [General]

    After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.

    ****The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

    a Kept Woman?

    Saturday, July 19, 2008, 8:05 PM [General]

    You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind, but GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)

    There were times when I thought I could go no longer, but the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)

    At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong, but the LORD kept my mouth shut. (Psa. 13)

    Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough, but GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.. 
    (Matt. 6:25 -34)

    When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up. When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong!
    (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)

    I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me! I'm blessed to be 'kept.'

    Are you...or do you know a 'kept' woman?
    Praise God, I'm a KEPT woman!!! 
     
    "Because you are my help,
           I sing in the shadow of your wings. 
    My soul clings to you;
           your right hand upholds me." Ps. 63:7-8

    True Friends

    Saturday, July 19, 2008, 7:58 PM [General]

    Kindness is the language the blind can see and the deaf can hear. - Mark Twain




    TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING
    THROUGH THE DESERT .
    DURING SOME POINT OF THE
    JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
    ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND
    SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
    IN THE FACE


    THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED
    WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT
    SAYING ANYTHING,
    WROTE IN THE SAND ,

    TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
    SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE ..

    THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
    UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,
    WHERE THEY DECIDED
    TO TAKE A BATH .

    THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
    SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
    MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,
    BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.

    AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
    THE NEAR DROWNING,
    HE WROTE ON A STONE:

    'TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
    SAVED MY LIFE'

    THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
    AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
    ASKED HIM, 'AFTER I HURT YOU,
    YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,
    YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?'

    THE FRIEND REPLIED
    'WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
    WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN
    IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF
    FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.

    BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES
    SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,
    WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
    WHERE NO WIND
    CAN EVER ERASE IT'

    LEARN TO WRITE
    YOUR HURTS IN
    THE SAND AND TO
    CARVE YOUR
    BENEFITS IN STONE.

    THEY SAY IT TAKES A
    MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL
    PERSON,
    AN HOUR TO
    APPRECIATE THEM,
    A DAY
    TO LOVE THEM,
    BUT THEN ,

    AN ENTIRE LIFE
    TO FORGET THEM.


    TAKE THE TIME TO LIVE!

    Luv and hugs to my Friends! Kiss

    Another Death in the Family

    Saturday, July 12, 2008, 10:37 AM [General]

    A year ago my Uncle Bobby passed away, in May Micky passed and yesterday morning Patsy went home. Its just a sad day, so many gone in a short time.   Beautiful flowers all around, all the way down the funeral home wall, cards and notes saying she will be missed. Why send flowers now? Would it have been better to spend the money taking her out to eat? Or to her favorite movie? Sending such beautiful flowers to her now makes no sence to me. Cry

    Do not be too quick to condemn the man who no longer believes in God: for it is perhaps your own coldness and avarice and mediocrity and materialism and selfishness that have chilled his faith.

    Billy Graham

    Wednesday, July 2, 2008, 9:01 PM [General]

    Why Do People Believe Only Their Church Leads to the Path to Heaven?
    By Billy Graham, Tribune Media Services
    Q: I have a friend who's constantly trying to get me to go to his church, and he finally admitted to me that the reason is because he is convinced I won't go to heaven unless I belong to his church. Where does he get this? -- M.McF.

    A: I don't doubt your friend's sincerity -- but the Bible doesn't teach that God's salvation is limited to only one particular church or denomination. In my travels, I've met committed believers from almost every conceivable church and denomination, and this has helped me appreciate the many channels God uses to get His work done.

    Our salvation depends on only one thing: our relationship to Jesus Christ. Many people think that their salvation depends on themselves and how good they are. They think that if they are only good enough, then God will let them into heaven. They know they aren't perfect -- but (they say) shouldn't God reward them with salvation if they just try hard enough?

    But this isn't what the Bible teaches. The Bible tells us that God is absolutely pure and holy -- and even one sin would be enough to banish us from His presence. The Bible says, "Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong" (Habakkuk 1:13). Can any of us claim to be sinless? Of course not.

    This is why we need Christ. He came from heaven for one reason: to save us from our sins. He was without sin, but on the cross all our sins were placed on Him, and He took upon Himself the death and Hell that we deserve. Now He offers us salvation as a free gift, if we'll only turn to Him in repentance and faith. Are you trusting Christ alone for your salvation?

    I published this list of ideas on how to be good to yourself back in February when I celebrated "Pamper Your Inner Child Day." But I thought it was appropriate to revisit some of these ideas that come from Beliefnet's holistic editor, Valerie Reiss, or to encourage you to make up your own:

    1. bathe in fragrant water

    2. drink water

    3. stretch the upper back

    4. call a friend

    5. go for a walk

    6. list three things you love about yourself

    7. list three things you love about the world

    8. doodle

    9. write three pages in a journal

    10. knit something easy

    11. bake

    12. make soup

    13. take 10 slow even breaths

    14. meditate or pray for 10 minutes

    15. make a list of 3 things you're looking forward to

    16. make a list of 3 reasons why you are needed here

    17. give something to someone

    18. call a sick/pregnant/overwhelmed friend and offer help

    19. make and drink a cup of tea

    20. water the plants

    21. read a favorite author

    22. look through old photos

    23. make a collage

    My Thoughts of War

    Wednesday, July 2, 2008, 12:56 PM [General]

    Land Of Confusion lyrics

    I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
    Been haunted by a million screams
    But I can hear the marching feet
    They're moving into the street

    Now, did you read the news today?
    They say the danger has gone away
    But I can see the fire's still alight
    They're burning into the night

    There's too many men, too many people
    Making too many problems
    And there's not much love to go around
    Can't you see this is a land of confusion?

    This is the world we live in
    And these are the hands we're given
    Use them and let's start trying
    To make it a place worth living in

    Oh, superman, where are you now?
    When everything's gone wrong somehow?
    The men of steel, these men of power
    Are losing control by the hour

    This is the time, this is the place
    So we look for the future
    But there's not much love to go around
    Tell me why this is a land of confusion

    This is the world we live in
    And these are the hands we're given
    Use them and let's start trying
    To make it a place worth living in

    I remember long ago
    When the sun was shining
    And all the stars were bright all through the night
    In the wake of this madness, as I held you tight
    So long ago

    I won't be coming home tonight
    My generation will put it right
    We're not just making promises
    That we know we'll never keep

    There's too many men, too many people
    Making too many problems
    And there's not much love to go round
    Can't you see this is a land of confusion?

    Now, this is the world we live in
    And these are the hands we're given
    Use them and let's start trying
    To make it a place worth fighting for

    This is the world we live in
    And these are the names we're given
    Stand up and let's start showing
    Just where our lives are going to
