as a person thinketh

Rogue

a rogue tongue

not so fun..

being mean

what’s going on?

in you brain

and your heart

we are not all

the same..

we do all have

a beating heart

blood that runs

through our veins..

yours is not more precious

than mine

or any others..

as God is our maker

we were created by

his design..

and it was his plan

for all of us

to be kind..

1 Corinthians 13:1

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth..

 

 

 

something to think about

Worldly Wordy Chatter part 1

wordly wordy chatter

words gone wrong

what’s the matter?

prince of the air

got your tongue?

he’s having a heyday

having fun..

using your mouth

for evil

 to incite strife

nothing good and nothing right..

Prince of Peace

sadly looks on

where did the children

of God go wrong?

no longer discerning

between darkness and light

only puffed up

and following the crowd..

who think being louder

is ok

to prove their point

in what really is unsound..

                      r gould

Which way?

And you He made alive, who were dead in trepasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience. among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us. Even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved). and raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. That in ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

                                                                                                           Ephesians 2: 1-8

As a child of God we are in the world but not of it. That means we are different. To be different. Not mean. not contentious, not vulgar, nor crude. We don’t follow the crowd of disobedience but on the path of right standing..

Wednesday Words

 

He who oppresses the poor taunts their maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors Him.. Proverbs 14:31

If we are rich and see others in need, yet close our hearts against them, how can we claim that we love God.. Romans 12:3

DSC_0180-001

I urge you brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own appetite. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people… Romans 16:17-18

The Luxury of Water

DSCN7536Daily Gratitude

The Message

Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t lose out on a thing.

RSV

And whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.

stamps

Homespun Kindness

A little package came my way yesterday. In a world that seems to be very indifferent and troubled, my heart was touched by the kind gesture of one whom I have come to know through the world of blogging.

DSCN2322

I collected stamps when I was a child. The opening up of my gift conjured up memories of getting stamps in the mail when I was about nine.

DSCN2327-002

There are an assortment of very cool stamps.
