Sept. 26/18 – The heart is happiest when it beats for others.

“Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”                                                                                                                                         John 15:13

Peace to you.

Sept.12/18 – He that throws dirt loses ground.

LoseGround“Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.”                                                                           Ephesians 4:25

You know the old adage when I point a finger there are three pointing back at me. I work at using more grace and being more thoughtful before I speak. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not always successful but I continue to work on my heart. Always a work in progress.

Peace to you.

Sept.5/18 – Contentment isn’t getting what we want but being satisfied with what we have.

contentmentcontentmentSometimes I find this difficult with all the social bombardment of advertisements. Telling us what we need and what we should have to be complete and happy. It’s a temporary best thing till the next best thing. It’s a choice of the heart. Be content.

“Not that i speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.”                                                                 Philippians 4:11

Peace to you.

Aug.22/18 – Never pass up a chance to keep your mouth shut.

MouthShut“Even a fool when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.” – Proverbs 17:28

This is something I need to work on consciously, sometimes my mouth is in gear before my brain. Then my need to make amends. Humble pie.
