Communication...Can you hear it now?

"When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly." Proverbs 31:26   How often do we communicate our wishes to another human being each day?  Do we always get what we've requested of that other person?  No?  Wondering why?  A sticky little subject called communication.  If we don't...

Got Cake?

I was busy reading my devotionals and came across one that spoke of having your cake and eating it, too.  Got me to thinking... Individually, each item in a cake recipe is not all that appealing.  Some of it is downright appalling.  However, when you get to the finished product, it's a divine treat.  Life is much like a cake....

Two steps forward and one step back... Still having difficulties with the kids.  I'm gonna have to do a whole lot of praying because my patience level is dwindling.  I am not equipped to deal with this stuff.  It's so frustrating. Philippians 4:7  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your...

I don't have a lot of time today because I'm a busy girl with lots to do.  I'm enjoying the OSAS discussion we have going in the forums.  I will continue to look at scripture and look at information.  I enjoy studying my bible for answers.  It's thrilling for me. ~*~ Anyway, things are a bit better with the kids at work this...

Oh my goodness!!  Thought we were gonna get blown away on Saturday.  Our tornado sirens went off and I ended up having to go take cover.  Funny thing about that is that I got to meet the neighbors that I didn't exactly get off on the right foot with.  I had to go out one day and ask their son to turn the music down in his...

Today I have our younger co-workers on my mind.  They have trouble getting along and following the rules.  I've had people say that they think the issues these kids have stem from their home lives.  This is likely true in part.  But, a great deal of it is their unwillingness to cooperate.  They want to do what they want to ...

I have something to share today.  I got to see God @ work first hand a couple days ago.  About a month or so ago...I was eating at a fast food place on a Sat. noon and as usual I was dining alone off in a corner.  Favorite table in the house by the way.  *hehe*  Anyway, I couldn't help overhearing a discussion between 3...

Mary's Meanderings for April 9, 2012

Posted in General on Mon, Apr 09 2012 - 10:43 AM

Today I got to thinking about what it means to serve others.  Part of what I do every day involves serving others.  I can't even stop doing it when I'm not working.  For me it is habit.  It's second nature.  Yet I still lack in my abilities to serve the Lord with this same automatic nature.  Perhaps spending more time ...

Morning everyone. This morning I would like to start off praying for those who use this Christian website to perform evil acts against others.  I pray that God will help them to see the error of their ways and open their hearts to Christ and to doing good deeds.  Father please open their eyes to these wrongs and help them to make...

Good Morning! Today I want to talk about knocking on the door and asking the Lord for an answer to something and what happens afterwords.  A devotional I'd read discussed this the other day and I found it humorous when I began to think of how I behave on a daily basis in comparison to this.  I'm sure we've all at some point asked God.....

Morning...  Last night when I got home from work I felt the need to go to Psalms for comfort.  Sometimes when I feel so bad that nothing else can help me feel better, the book of Psalms is the only thing that can lift my spirits.  Here lately I've been troubled by depression.  I get depressed when I have too much on my plate...

Good morning from Kansas.  I started a thread on a teaching I was taught and it seems to be quite controversial so we'll see how long I'm allowed to stay on this site. Generally people get mad at me and I end up leaving. I just can't seem to accept the idea that if you don't do certain things all the time that you would not be accepted into...
