Sept.4/20 – Kindness is a language the dumb can speak, and the deaf can hear and understand. – Christian Bovee

KindnessLanguage copy

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.                                                                                                                                                                         Proverbs 15:1

In a personal situation when i feel attacked or think I need to make myself heard, my volume can get loud  and the situation worsens without a doubt. If I can keep calm and don’t raise my voice the situation often diffuses and never escalades. I have to remind myself to be gentle with my words. The tongue can be a dangerous hurtful weapon.

Peace to you.

Aug. 26/20 – A true friend listens with their heart.

FriendListensHeart

Love bears all things.                                                                                     1 Corinthians 13:7

A friend who listens and doesn’t pass judgement but helps you keep true to yourself is like a rare jewel. Keep them in your bubble and don’t take them for granted.

Peace to you.

Even in old age they will still produce fruit and be vital……..           Psalm 92:14

Love this. We’re never too old, it’s a state of mind. Be young at heart and always have an attitude of gratitude. Yes indeed, I strive to be positive my thoughts but I do need to make it a conscious effort especially in this times.

Peace to you.

July 15/20 – In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside you.

movementChaos

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.                                                                                                            Psalm 46:10

Sometimes we are blown away with God’s display of glory in our lives. Sometimes we meet with Him in the quietness.

Stop striving and remember to be still and seek contentment.

Peace to you.

July 8/20 -What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. – Jane Goodall.

makeaDifferenceYou are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.                                                                                                                Matthew 5: 13

June 24 / 20 – Fairness – Treating everyone in a just and accepting manner.

To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
Proverbs 21: 3

21125775_1615909528473268_6393287883419102320_o copy

Ever felt life’s not fair? Just the other day during a game my grandchild hollered to his

sibling, “That’s not fair, you cheated.” Sound familiar? Sometimes I want to holler that

sentiment to another adult with whom I am admittingly envious. We have all been given

different gifts but most of us want what we don’t have. It’s a sinful world with sinful

people. I don’t think of it this way but fairness properly defined is freedom

from dishonesty, bias, and injustice. It’s a choice, it’s your choice.

Peace to you.
