A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Ways to share the Gospel***UPDATE***

A word of caution though-
we don't want it to become graffiti,
so always use rocks small
and easily movable so they are not in one place long.

I found this way of getting the WORD out
just so clever.
Does it replace, tracts, one on one, etc?
but it does get the WORD out and all it takes is a
Sharpie and a ROCK
Think of the places you could leave one of these

Would love to know if any of you are going to do this.
Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
it shall not return unto me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Sunday night we were priviledged to have
Pastor S. M. Davis at our church.
He spoke on "Storm Proofing your Marriage"
Excellent sermon, I had heard him before but never in person.
He is a Pastor in Illinois and also has a Ministry to families.
Please check out his web site:
Solve Family Problems.



I went and had part 2 of my cardiac testing.
It was not as rough as the first part.
I am waiting for the results and then have a echo
scheduled for next month.
I appreciate the prayers and emails.
I am thankful,

Thanks Jen****UPDATE*****

Had my tests, and will have part 2 as they say on Monday.
Today's was the rough one...I am praising the Lord
For HIS goodness and mercy and the Prayers of HIS People
Should know the results next week
Still have another one in March
Thank you dear friends for praying
I couldn't resist.
I snagged this picture from *Pen of Jen's* blog
She is using it this week for her caption contest.
I was thinking of all the things we have done,
as women to try to improve our looks.
Look at this little girl, it starts so young.
I would guess this is one of those early
permanent days...or is it?
I have read recently most women
have their hair done, more to please
other women, rather than what
their spouse likes.
I think I would agree with that statement.
Anyways, this picture sure tickled my funny bone and reminded me of my
first experience as a 5 year old getting my long hair cut off and getting a
very curly perm. When I see the old movies of it,
For more great pictures every week,
visit Pen of Jen's. She posts on Tuesday her
pictures and then you come up with the captions.

ALSO, Would love prayer
I am having some cardiac testing
tomorrow. I am sure it is NOTHING
but a tad nervous, plus I have to be off caffeine
**24 hours**
aaARGH !!!!

a verse on my mind

Do you ever mull things around in your mind?
I do, and sometimes , I THINK I do to a fault.
I was mulling again today, and this verse came to mind,
or should I say a portion of this verse came to mind.
1 Samuel 15:22
And Samuel said,
Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
as in obeying the voice of the LORD?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
and to hearken than the fat of rams.
The portion that came to mind was :
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice.
This spoke to me, don't know if it will to you or not.
It is also not a big thing, WHAT, I was mulling about.
I have to say, I do LOVE it ,when
the Lord brings to mind an answer from HIS WORD.

Happy Birthday Gina

Happy Birthday Sweet GINA
She is married to our son, Matt.
They are parents to our granddog "Husker" a Shiba-inu
Gina, is one of the most kind people I have ever met.
She is easy to be around.
She has a great decorating sense and a immaculate housekeeper.
She is a hard diligent worker, she helped my husband put the siding up on
our house one summer. She was working hard ,days and days in the heat.
Gina went to a Christian college and taught school,
she is now doing something different.
She loves to travel .and with Matt being a pilot, this sure makes it easier.
They used to live in our area and we would see them often,
now I can't even drive to their area without tearing up.
I love it, that she loves our son and even more so , that she loves the Lord.
Gina, we love you and miss you.
Mom and Dad

God Will Take Care of You

This morning, I had just finished reading my Bible.
I was thinking about many things on my heart.
Might have even crossed the line, into worry and fretting.
This hymn came to mind.
I don't know if ANYONE out there has things on their mind
or can tend to carry them , themselves.
It might be about you, a loved one or situation.
I hope the words to this Hymn speak to your heart.

Civilla D. Martin, 1869-1948
W. Stillman Martin, 1862-1935
Be not dismayed whate'er betide,
God will take care of you;
Beneath His wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.
Refrain:God will take care of you,
Thro' ev'ry day,
O'er all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.
Thro' days of toil when heart doth fail,
God will take care of you;
When dangers fierce your path assail,
God will take care of you.
All you may need He will provide,
God will take care of you;
Trust Him, and you will be satisfied,
God will take care of you.
Lonely or sad, from friends apart,
God will take care of you;
He will give peace to your aching heart,
God will take care of you.
No matter what may be the test,
God will take care of you;
Lean, weary one, upon His breast,
God will take care of you.
You can Look it up here to listen to.

Something to Ponder

Today on Mrs. B's "Cherish the Home" she has a very good (great) post on BLOGGING.....
She found this post and is sharing excerpts . She also gives us a link to read it in its' entirety.
I think as women that want and need to honor God in our lives....with the 24 hours that God gives each of us....this post will give you something to think about....It has me....
I would encourage you to pop on over....give it a read...and then ask the Lord "what do YOU want me to glean or learn from this?" Still pondering...

On the Bible--Spurgeon

Two Quotes I read today:
The BIBLE in the memory is better than
the BIBLE in the bookcase.


Never , never neglect
the Word of God.
Charles Spurgeon

2Ti 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.
