Whatever You Do


How often are we given a task and make it harder than it should be by constantly complaining about it?

Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could do everything with a feeling of love and gratitude that this is what we have been trusted with.

Resentment often hardens our demeanor where love softens it. Like Julie Andrews sings in Mary Poppins..A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down…

And even scripture tells us the same thing in a different way: Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14 ESV. Happy Monday.

do everything in love - minding my nest

Another Life Lesson


I posted this on Facebook a couple of days ago and may or may not have blogged it in the past but it is a life lesson worth repeating. It comes from a book written by Agnes Sanford, The Healing Light.

Anger tends to destroy the body. It also tends to destroy the soul. The anger that solidifies into hate, resentment, or hurt feelings deposits a continual sediment of poison in nerves, arteries, bones and mind, and prepares the body for death.

Why would we do that to ourselves?

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Ephesians 4:31 NIV

Some Sound Biblical Advice


Most people who know me know how much I love my Bible. Some even wonder why. Well, I’m here to try to answer that question.

I have found such good advice and lessons for living in the Bible that it would be difficult for me to put it aside. And here’s an example:

In the New Testament we find Paul in his second letter to Timothy giving this advice…

Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels…instead be kind to¬†everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 2 Timothy 2:23,24

Does that not sound like a lesson in living?

Here is an acronym for the Bible…

Makes good sense to me.
