Word of the Week – Patience

This week’s word was suggested by Stephen from A Fractured Faith! But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. -James 1:4, KJV Our patience is demonstrated most clearly when we settle ourselves and focus on what we can do while we wait. – Crystal McDowell But if we…

Who’s the Best?

I am a competitive person. My sin nature always wants to be the best, and always wants other people to know without a doubt that I am the best. For example, the other day, I was practicing for the Christmas program that the kids in church are doing. My job is to accompany the kids…

Verse of the Week – Romans 5:5

​ And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. -Romans 5:5, KJV This verse was suggested to me by Notesonthoughts26, and what a beautiful verse it is! It isn’t very familiar to me, but I love it now. 😉…

Word of the Week – Stillness

Thanks so much to Stephen for this suggestion, which is so suitable to the time of year! Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace… If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In…

New Series! Verse of the Week – Hebrews 13:16

​But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. -Hebrews 13:16, KJV I just found this verse today, and I really like it. Something I’ve been working on this week is to think more about other people, instead of stumbling around in my own little world and…

How to Love Your Enemies… Like a Cat

My dad and my cat really don’t get along. When Miss Potter found us, my dad really didn’t want to keep her, but he let us have her because he is such a good guy.  Anyway, they haven’t grown on each other at all in the eight years we have owned her, lol! She darts…

Stories of the Bible – Joseph, Man of Mercy

Today’s story was suggested by Unwaetor Wisdom! As you may know, I love a good obscure Bible character. This one isn’t exactly obscure, but he is someone I hadn’t thought about very much before; his name is Joseph, and he is the earthly father of Jesus Christ. This post was also inspired by Jason Gray’s song…

Sunny Sunday 10/21/18

Guess what this is? 😉 Our African violets love the cooler weather! They thrive in 60°s weather, which is our house right now. Our wind chimes are so pretty in the sun! Well, it looks like a warm day in this next one, even if it wasn’t… Miss Potter loves the sun! There’s kind of…
