Wait On God

I need to remind myself to wait on God:

I longed to walk along an easy road,
And leave behind the dull routine of home,
Thinking in other fields to serve my God;
But Jesus said, "My time has not yet come."

Beautiful In His Time

I've never mentioned this minister before. His name is Dr. David Jeremiah. Currently he is doing a series called the 25th Anniversary Collection. In it he rebroadcasts his best sermons in the past 25 years.

Yesterday when I left early from substituting teaching I heard this sermon on the radio, Beautiful In His Time.

The Mystery of the Hairy-Rimmed Tupperware Glasses

A few weeks back my husband sat down to eat his supper and discovered he had a hairy Tupperware glass. The rim which must touch your lips in order for you to to drink your drink had short scraggly plastic hairs along it's edge.

Then he spoke a question that we both had to stop and think about. How did these glass seemingly grow hair!? The two best glasses in our house are like this! Our Tupperware glasses are big sizes and are made of the best durable plastic. (I've been educated of such truth all through the years when I've attended their parties.)

Mother Teresa: Giving Unselfishly

Mother Teresa gave unselfishly in a big way with her life. Everyone should have the attitude to give. We should teach our children to give to others, to be hard workers and provide for their families and to follow after God. Mrs. Happy Housewife wrote about Mother Teresa recently. She had a few great quotes that I just had to make note of:

Dr. D. James Kennedy Memorial

Dr. D. James Kennedy died this past Wednesday. He is a godly preacher of the Bible. I'm sad to know this world is without such a good person but he is definitely in a much finer place. I trusted the words of his sermons. I learned many Biblical truths and our Christian heritage from his radio program. He is a man of high intellect who had poured so much of his life into the things of God. Here is a historical memorial of his life. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.

The Expo After Hours

Sunday night my oldest son and I did something fun. We volunteered for Habitat For Humanity. There was a big Home and Garden Show in the Exposition building on the Tulsa fairgrounds. Sam and I went to tear down the walls of exhibits. There were all kinds of exhibits varying from cabinetry, wall pictures and wood furniture to spas, brick work and storage barns.

My fifteen-year-old and I worked with several students from Tulsa Community College and Tulsa University.

Getting Revenge Is Wrong

It's easy to want to do. If someone makes you mad, to calm yourself down from them taking advantage of you, you figure out a way to get even.

Everybody has a tendency to do it to one extent or another. Even family members do this with one another. One brother breaks another brother's toy so the one with the broken toy gets even by destroying a favorite toy of the one who caused the offense.

Boy Scout Letter Home

I heard this in from a sermon by Chuck Swindoll:

Boy Scout Letter Home

Dear Mom,

Our scout master told us all write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and worried. We are OK. Only 1 of our tents and 2 sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for Chad when it happened.

Walking

Lately, I've established a new addiction in my life. It has to do with walking. One or two miles from our home there is a long walking path. I love to go there. My husband and I go together. And sometimes we go as a family.

Corner "peel" link

If you want to get an ad/link corner peel like the one in the upper righthand corner,go to http://resource68.peelads.hop.clickbank.net/. My husband bought ours a week or so ago (got a really good deal since he got the old version) and has put it on several of our sites, and here.

  3. It makes your blog look more creative.
  4. It's a cool, trendy gadget.

Voice of the Martyrs

Do you happen to have extra money or time you need to use more wisely?

An attitude of trust and faith in God are in the forefront of many modern Christians in other countries. In countries where Christianity is illegal and if you have a Bible or tell others of Christ, you could go to prison, your family could be punished, you could be beaten or monetarily punished.

There is a website of an organization called Voice of the Martyrs. It has a museum and its headquarters are located in Bartlesville Oklahoma.

Here is a list of projects that are ongoing through this ministry:

Elizabeth Elliot Quote

Today is mine.
Tomorrow is none of my business.
If I peer anxiously into the fog of the future, I will strain my spiritual eyes so that I will not see clearly what is required of me now.

I was reading through a devotion by Elizabeth Elliot today from the Back to the Bible website. I discovered this good quote as a paragraph in the devotion I wanted to share it with you.
