treasure

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Another series of strands woven into our tapestries this past weekend came from the Sunday morning message.



are full of teaching as well as praise and worship...beginning with the fear of the LORD...





Psalm 112 offers GOD's promises for the righteous who fear Him:
a. blessing...our character is transformed by Christ and our conduct changed as His Spirit enables us to live differently than we did.
b. security...knowing we will not be shaken, as our hearts trust steadfastly in the LORD both in life and in death.
c.victory...over worldly temptations to greedily grasp stuff for ourselves or long and pine for earthly things instead of GOD"s true treasure.

One summary of Psalm 112 is this equation...1-1=2+

As we receive "treasure" (stuff) and we give it out (back), we receive even more...

weekend weavings...

Monday, November 24, 2014

When the weekend ended, we had woven a wee bit of wisdom wealth into our lives...

Saturday...
For many hours we met with an old friend to work on our relationships. Over time, sharp words, miscommunications and misunderstandings had worn away at the bond we have. There was a lot of discussion about "You said this..." No, I didn't, I meant that...", etc. etc. What we finally realized is that what we thought we were saying to one another, was being heard as something completely different. And then there was the problem of hearsay, too.
Lessons:
1. When offended, go immediately to the one who we perceive has hurt us and work things through completely then and there.
2. Listen with ears for understanding the intent of words spoken to us, not just the words themselves.
3. Take the time really needed to mend and heal relationships.






A person has joy in an apt answer; and how delightful is a timely word!

constantly moving...

Friday, November 21, 2014

Whew! What a day! I thought I'd spend a couple hours at the most doing more "clearning" (clearing out stuff and cleaning that area really thoroughly). However, it ended up being seven hours all together of hauling boxes and bags, dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing, packing up items to give away, getting the "toss" bunch collected and then putting back what is being kept.
For breaks from all this I did some jogging/running.. emoticon emoticon with walk cool downs... emoticon and my tap-tap practice... emoticon
Hope to finish the two rooms before Thanksgiving!!
