Verses from Proverbs 29

Proverbs 29: "the godly care about the rights of the poor; the wicked don't care at all." vs. 7 "to discipline a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child." vs. 15 "discipline your children, and they will give you peace of mind and will make your heart glad." When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful." vs. 17-18 There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking. vs 20 "Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor." vs. 23 "Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety." vs. 25

I Need More...Self-Control

Image
Yes, I need more Self-Control How do I aim higher and gain more self-control? I am lacking especially these last few months. We pay off our debt and credit cards and I go spending and rack it back up again. It's frustrating and humbling to admit that I need more self-control. I am praying as I confront this issue and do what I can to address this problem head on that the Lord will give me His help in producing this fruit of the spirit: self-control. Galatians 5:22 I am by nature a problem-solver. I don't like to just have or state a problem I like to give a solution to  the problem. The problem: over spending Solution: 30 days no spending fast to start, I gave my cards to my husband and let him know I am not to spend and to be accountable to him. This is humiliating and hard but I need his help so we can keep moving forward and not backwards. We need to keep increasing our credit score not lowering it with more debt. I've got to break free from this addiction of shopping …

Happy Bday Jesus! Merry Christmas!

Should We All Tolerate Your Beliefs?

Image
"I Look up to the mountains-- does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!" Psalm 121:1-2
Today I write about tolerance for others beliefs. I am for the first time in my life experiencing grief for my children as I raise them up in this world and choose to put them in public school I can see that I not only have to teach them our beliefs but also tolerance for their peers beliefs.
I find myself on the minority as a Believer in Christ teaching my children that gifts do not come from Santa Clause and as my husband and me feel that to teach them the truth in the beginning is the best path to take. As both of us grew up in homes that told us the lie that most parents tell their children that Santa Clause will bring them gifts. When we both finally found out the truth we both experienced hurt and pain and we do not want to carry on such a tradition as it is in this nation.
Our belief is to tell them the truth and that is our belief and fa…

Turning Your House into a Home-living room makeover

Image
If you are like me you don't have the time to redo your furniture and you don't have the money to buy new furniture. Here's what I did for quick and simple and very cheap furniture covers.


i repurposed a large mens shirt and a pillow cover for the stained chair.
and for my brand new fabric  red couch i wanted to prevent stains and used a xl black lace skirt and two pillow cases.



Here's another solution and better one for the red couch. we really needed to replace our years of being peed and spilled on fabric cloth couch i didn't want to get another black leather futon which i payed $200 for so i bought this red futon with a fabric covering for $90. Here's my better solution for covering it. In the pic below I'm using 2 zebra Eclipse curtains for $9 each and they can be easily thrown in the washer when needing cleaned and they have a water proof type backing in case spills happen and they will it will protect the fabric couch until my boys are older. Now i&#…

A Broken and Used Woman

Image
"Joyful are those you discipline, Lord, those you teach with your instructions. You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug to capture the wicked. When doubt filled my mind your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. The Lord is my fortress; my God is the mighty rock where I hide."
Psalm 94:6, 12-13, 19, 22



"Being Used & Abused, a life time of seeking love in all the wrong places
one lie after another, taking from me and leaving me empty with nothing
but pain to show for all you offered me. A thick shell covers my scars
so I can keep going but now with a mind filled with how I can get you
the way you got me. Instead I will act innocent but in reality I am using
you. Wondering whose got your back? Thinking how'd I get like this....
One day I was a youthful dreamer filled with life and hope and the next
a broken and torn flower, deprived from water, yearning for love and life."

This is a poem that describes my past life, a part of my testimon…

What are you Thankful For?

Image
"One of the things I always pray for is the opportunity, God willing, to come at last to see you. For I long to visit you so I can bring you some spiritual gift that will help you grow strong in the Lord. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours." Romans 1:10-12

As I reflect on the Word of God this morning I think of this ministry the Lord has blessed me with the spiritual gift to promote and to write as I stay home as a Mom and wife handling the household and it brings warmth and thankfulness to my heart. I never knew that I could be what I am today or do what I do today and I owe it all to my life changing experience as a new child of God, believing in Jesus Christ as my Saviour has transformed my heart, mind, and spirit.

I am praying that wherever you are and whatever your beliefs that you stay warm and know this that Jesus Christ is real and He loves you and wants to introduce you to God: Father who loves you …
