I love that verse!!

Got this in an email today–what a great verse!!

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Hebrews 10:24

It’s a given that there are SO MANY great verses that speak to us at “just the right time.” It just reminds me that the Bible is FULL of so many promises, so many guidelines, so many admonitions, so many blessed are the’s, so many proverbs (which I have a calendar page that says proverbs are SHORT sentences drawn from LOONG experience 😉 ) and oh so many that I cannot remember them all but must needs re-read them day after day!!

Thank you for my Bible, thank you for reminding me how precious it is tonight and all nights.

OK so I figured . . .

There’s no way I can write in this blog every day–I’m not sure there are enough words in my head to write something each day, but I’ve been SO SIDETRACKED that I need to 1) get back in God’s Word tonight and 2) do a little work before I drop off to sleep.

Walking 18 holes of golf and pushing a MASSIVE pro golf bag on a blistery, hot, heat rash day has WORN ME OUT! I’m pretty sure it’s not because I’m OLD 🙂 or that I’m changing and can’t do things like I used to –> (sigh)

But it does remind me of the unchanging God I serve who made the beautiful grass and trees (my ball) I saw today.

Heaven & earth will perish BUT He is ever the same & His years will not end.

“Of old Thou founded the earth & the heavens are the work of Thy hands. Even they will perish, but Thou dost endure & all of them will wear out like a garment like clothing Thou will change them & they will be changed. But Thou art the same & Thy years will not come to an end. Ps 102:25-27

My Three Sons


They’re goofing off a bit in this pic, but it’s still a good one of the youngest, middle and oldest, from bottom to top, in front of our house. We were on our way to my MIL’s funeral so the older two were home–it’s sad to know that it gets harder and harder for all of us to be in one place at ONE time.
We rejoiced that day knowing that our dear mother, grandmother was with the Lord and no longer trapped in her earthly, broken body.

A gentle answer turns away anger

My goal for today: Put GENTLE back in my life!! When did it leave? Why did it leave? My heart wants to be gentle, it doesn’t want to be harsh and stir up anger– Proverbs 15:1 needs to be plastered on my forehead–that’s what they did in the OT, you know? They wrote it on the doorposts of their house, they “ate” it for meals 🙂 and they had a little pouch they wore on their head that would have in it a promise or admonition written (scrolled) down. If you do something for two weeks, it becomes a HABIT!! Hello, I’m going to DO GENTLE for two weeks–I’ll just have to write down the word GENTLE and I’ll know what it means, I’ll know. I’ve always been of the mind, it’s not so much what WOULD Jesus do, but what DID Jesus do
