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..

 

words

a few thursday words

be good, do good

be better, do better

speak kind, speak kinder

be different, live different

don’t spew mean words

don’t hate, don’t retaliate

foul words spoken

little ears hear

 it’s not amusing

that scary out of control

behavior is showing

and

 insults do not solve

they only hinder

your growth

which is meant for your good

and if you do good

we will all be better..

{Dear God, please help us all}

autumn rain

clears the air

revives the earth

from summer’s heat

hues of gold, yellow and brown

leaves that fall

and dance around

crispy apples, take a bite

sounds crunchy

like leaves under your feet..

bring out the sweaters

that wrap your arms

nice and cozy..

a cup of coffee or some tea

don’t forget about hot cider, and

of course a sweet spicy treat..

an autumn girl I am..

Sunday Soul Search

dsc_0349

O Lord, You have searched me and known me.

You know my sitting down and my rising up;

You understand my thought afar off.

You comprehend my path and my laying down,

And are acquainted with all of my ways.

For there is not a word on my tongue,

But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether..

                                  Psalm 139:1-4

numbers

on the scale

numbers

on clock

our lives

are based on

numbers

it’s a very sobering thought

outnumbered

by numbers

is that who

we are

do numbers

tell us

that we

have come far

or not..

in life

that seems

to give

those with

high numbers

the number one spot..
