Habit

Our daughter, Malinda, pinned this on Pinterest this week.

Not a new idea. A very important way of life.

Some life habits I want to attain:

Breathe God in and out of every breath.

Apply Jesus’ living example to my mind, heart and soul.

Become unselfish God love

Fun times with friends

 

We have two church bowling teams participating in an 8

week holy rollers league event.  Our team names are the

Happy Strikers and Balaam’s Donkeys.  Here are a few shot

of bowlers and fans from Thursday night.

Put your name in the blank…..

you-faith-perseverance

A devotional of Oswald Chambers. Please say your name in the blank space.

Perseverance means more than endurance-more than simply

holding on until the end.  ___________ life is in the hands of

God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer.

 

God is aiming at something _________ cannot see, but our

Lord continues to stretch and strain, and every once in a

while ___________ says, “I can’t take any more.”  Yet God

pays no attention; He goes on stretching until His purpose

is in sight, and then he lets the arrow fly. 

Entrust yourself to God’s hands.

Faith is not some weak and pitiful emotion, but is strong and

vigorous confidence built on the fact that God is holy love.

And even though ______ cannot see Him right now and

cannot understand what He is doing, ______ knows Him.

Disaster occurs in your life when you lack the mental

composure that comes from establishing yourself on the

eternal truth that God is holy love.  Faith is the supreme

effort of your life-throwing _______ with abandon and total

confidence upon God.

 

P.S. When Jimmy read the post it reminded him of something he had

 written which he posted on my comments. 

 

 

I wrote this awhile back…

Arrows of Love

I imagine God with bow drawn taught
His mighty arm steady and sure.
I imagine God with an aim that is true
His eye seeing targets obscure.

I imagine God with all skill and all wisdom
aiming His faithful in directions of need.
With love and with passion God sends on the flight
His arrows to work His good deed.

God’s targets are scattered
we cannot perceive
the faithful, the lovely
the downtrodden, the lonely,
the broken, the poor, the deceived.

Like tiny little arrows of love
God’s faithful shoot forth in all directions.
They come and they pierce hearts,
they show passion, God’s affections.

Like tiny little arrows of love
the faithful redirect our thoughts
they influence our thinking,
they show us what God is like
by their love and their teaching.

Like tiny arrows of love
those lives open our hearts to understanding
that even in the midst of toil, suffering
and carrying the cross
that joy, love and patience are examples of choice.

Among the faithful
who are God’s arrows that fly
are a comfort in life who teach us that by,
living or dying it all means the same
to live is for Christ, to die is to gain.

Oh my gah. @Staci Guinn & @Savannah Harrison, Remember when we used to take these pictures all the time? Flowers? Stars? Shoes? haha

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor

female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  Galatians 3:28

 

The apostle Paul wrote these life changing words just a few short

years ago between A.D. 48-53. 

 

Are we getting any closer to understanding and living this life

 changing freedom given to each and every person through Christ

 Jesus? 

…for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

 

That is totally awesome!!!!!!

Thank you to Google Image and Pinterest for the photos in this blog.

 

No internet-low cell signal

 

Yes, we’ve been away from technology for several days. 

When we go to the hill there is NO internet and occasional

cell reception.  Have you tried going without the internet or

cell phone for a day, or two, or three?

This turkey made several trips back and forth through the

old garden while we watched from the porch.

Take a guess where the turkey is outside right now?

Just follow their noses.  And that’s my Tigger toes!
