A Teachable Day

Proverbs 25:27
"It is not good to eat much honey, nor is it glorious to seek one's own glory.

I was reading through my notebook this morning and came across this verse that I had written down. I stopped and began to realize that the Lord was teaching me something from this verse. Actually two things.

The first thing I learned, or should say was reminded, is that it is not good to eat much honey. I am not really a honey eater, but I do like sweet things to eat any time of the day. I am a diabetic and last several checkups readings have not been good. This is a wake-up call to cut back on the sweets.

The second part of the lesson learned today is not to seek glory for the things I do.Even as a child, as young as eight, doing this. It didn't work then and it doesn't work now. It bragging, which does not come the Lord anything that I do good comes from the Lord and He is the one to receive the glory. 

So I am so glad that I obeyed and read my notes.

Why Do You Like Your Job?

I was just reading one of my e-mails and the reader was explaing why she enjoyed being an English teacher. When I started reading her reasons I thought about why I enjoy writing my blog.

First, I enjoy sharing with people what the Lord is doing in my life. I hope that these events will encourage others to trust in the Lord.

I like to write and this gives me one avenue to do so.

Even though I dont get any responses, it doesn't matter, I will keep on writing. However if you do have any comments it would be nice to hear from you.

It is always nice to be able to do the things you like to do.

Freaky phenomenon shows hundreds of spiders hanging in midair in Brazil

I was looking through the stories on Yahoo.com and came across this article. I thought would share.

Amazing! Don't think I would like to be around this phenomenon. But isn't God great in how he created each creature?

Quiet Time With God

Do you have a special time that you take out of your day to have a quiet time with God? I like to have my time before I get out of bed. When I first wake up I say good morning to God my Father, Jesus my Savior, and the Holy Spirit my guide.

Today I read Psalm 105:1-5 and to sum up these verses this is the general idea when we talk with Him.

 We can give thanks to Him.
         We can call out to Him.
         We can sing to Him.
         We can tell Him how proud we are of His Holy Name
         We can be happy.
         We can tell Him how much we depend on Him.

We also are told in these verses that we can go to Him at any time for help. Also we can tell others about Him. We can remember His miracles and all of His fair decisions He has made.

I hope that you have a quiet time with God.

Treasured Moments

As I was riding my stationary bike I was listening to a CD by Jim Brickman. It is called Picture This. The song that was playing at the time I was exercising was Frere Jacques.

Being hat I am a grandmother of nine and not really wanting to tell my age, it gives the idea that I have been around for a while. As soon as the song started I thought of my childhood days and how popular that song was and what happy memories of being able to sing a song in two languages. 


I was also thinking about other treasured moments such as the day I said yes to Jesus. I wanted Him to be part of my life. Up to that point my life was not a happy one. And I knew that I was a sinner and that God loved me so much that He allowed His Son to die for me. Not just for me but the whole world. Not everyone accepts what Jesus did on the cross, shedding His precios blood for our sins. He was buried and then rose fron the dead and returned back to His Father in heaven.

Do you have any treasured moments that you would like to share?
