A Boy and His Dog Cover-01

A Boy and His Dog
You have heard folks say ” A Boy and His Dog! ”  This book shows the close friendship and relationship of both.  My husband is a dog person really can relate to this and we often have talks about our Dogs and our past pets we have had and loved.

This book was so cute!  It shows what a sweet loving and fun relationship he has with his dog and how they do everything together, even bath together and the dog even sleeps on his bed.  Daniel enjoyed this book, in our home, we have dogs whose names are Baby and Konike. Baby is our Great Pryensse and Konike is our Black Lab/Retriever mix who is chocolate colored.  Daniel knows that having a dog means more than just feeding and watering, it comes with expense and responsibility.

Dying is Part of This World Cover-01

Dying Is Part of This World
Everyone has to deal with this subject and it seems that we all struggle with this topic. This thoughtfully written book shares about the fear of death. There are scripture references and discussion questions to provoke great conversation and prayer. With God’s knowledge and wisdom, you can overcome the fear of death and live a victorious life! Christ has conquered death! Amen

Dying is Part of This World was sorta a needed thing for us, so getting to read this was very helpful.  We lost my Dad a year ago May 25th, on my birthday. This was hard for me, but Daniel came to NY with me and we saw him the day before he passed. Since Daniel has had questions, this made it easier for me to share my belief on this without the worry of my emotions taking over.  We could just read this book and talk about death in general. We know that my Dad is in heaven with God and having this book reaffirm this helped us a lot. At the end of each chapter is discussion questions for us to use and talk about. Really great book if your trying to share this with your children and have lost someone close to you.

Don't Forget Me Cover-01

Don’t Forget Me 
Don’t Forget Me depicts a conversation between God and the Baby through pregnancy and birth. It will bring emotions and maybe even a tear to your eyes, as you are reminded that God is the author and giver of life. A perfect gift for expectant parents and siblings!

This book is meant to be used in the Christian Home. The Discussion Book Series encourages great discussions with discussion questions and Scripture references. This book is aimed at family discussion or even a woman’s bible study or teen girls class on marriage and pregnancy!

Since Daniel is my baby, I read this one myself.  This is the most Thoughtful and Encouraging book. Not just for children but for anyone expecting a baby.  It would be a great book to read to your children if you are expecting to share the biblical worldview of God being there from conception, birth and beyond.  I loved how it showed the love of God for the child, the love of the mother for her child and also the love of the father for the mother and for the Lord. The illustrations are so sweet and portray just how it is from the womb and it gives a very thoughtful and modest way of showing what happens in birth.  This book touched my heart even as a mom who has had many a miscarriage and it really should be in the church and the home. I love the verses in the back of the book that we can use to share God’s word with our children on conception, development, and birth.  I really love this book!

I hope you will consider these books for your children and your home. Also, consider getting this for your church when it is available in paperback or audio. I would so highly encourage Don’t Forget Me, for a teen group or a pre-marriage class.   All of these books are so well illustrated and very well written.

Wow, Your a Repeated Failure ?

How to Attain Excellence

Yesterday, I talked about the Definition of Excellence and How it is Measured  by the world, the church and by others and perhaps even by you, but also how God measures it.

To Fail Repeatedly, is how we learn and how we succeed !  

So in reality while you think you are a failure, you are learning and learning is not something we fail at. You may not have met up to someone else’s standard… but who’s standard are we really needing to meet up to ?  God’s….and yet we pressure our selves or allow others to pressure us to the point we give up or we become ill physically, emotionally or mentally.

“Stress” what happens when we allow things to trouble us…

So how do we attain or excel in  “Excellence” ?

Consider the following verses…

Romans 12:1-2,  tells us we are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice , holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable and perfect ,will of God.

James 1:27, tells us that Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted  from the world.

I John 2: 15-17,  tells us Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust of thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Wow, that sort of simplified things , can you see it ?

How can we know God’s Will, unless we follow the ways in which he says to life !

The Bible is a great instruction manual !!!

We will reserve discussing roles in the Family & Home for another day….

Let’s look again at Ruth and see how she attained ” Excellence” and why she was considered ” A Woman of Excellence”.

In Ruth 3:11 these are the character traits I personally see in her…

She has strength, She is worthy, She is brave and She is capable.   She was also Bold, unafraid or fearless and the important part is she waited upon the Lord to show her what to do and for Him to provide for her.

Proverbs 12:4   Tells us, A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband.

Virtuous : having or showing high moral standards.

synonyms: righteous, good, pure, whiter than white, saintly, angelic, moral, ethical, upright,upstanding, high-minded, principled, exemplarylaw-abiding, irreproachable,blameless, guiltless, unimpeachable, immaculate, honest, honorable, reputable,laudable, decent, respectable, noble, worthy, meritorious;

informal squeaky clean “they were entirely virtuous in their endeavors”

archaic: Chaste

( I like looking at words and definitions as it gives us a better view of knowing what things mean and who we should be )

Proverbs 31:10  says ” Who can find a virtuous woman ? for her price is far above rubies.

She displays all those noble characteristics and this makes her of great value !

Who are you trying to please anyway ?

I Corinthians 10: 31  says ” Whether  therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do , do all to the glory of God”.

Philippians 1: 9-11 says ” And this I pray, that your love  may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgement; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of  God.”

Philippians 4:8 says ” Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. “

We are to be pleasing God !

You might not get all your To Do List Done…

Your day may not have gone perfectly, but that is perfectly normal !

You should be redeeming the Time, not wasting it .  This past year I started using a planner. For Home & Business, it has helped me greatly to see what I am doing and how much time I am spending on doing things. I am a Keeper at Home, Wife of a Man who is Disabled , I Homeschool my 3 children , Have this blog and Run an At Home Business ! I also  Write and I am working on a book !

What are your duties ? On a daily basis there is a lot to do !

We will talk about Planners, Scheduling and Doing all things well another day !

Stop Feeling Worthless !

Proverbs 31:30-31 says “But a woman that feareth the Lord , She shall be praised. Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

If you are known for those good things y0u do or say that are virtuous

You are Worthy and Honorable !

Join Me Tomorrow , Lord willing  as we look at

Miracles from Heaven ~ Movie Review

images

Anna Beam (Kylie Rogers) lives with a rare, incurable disorder that leaves her unable to digest food. Despite the dire diagnosis, devoted mom Christy (Jennifer Garner) relentlessly searches for a way to save her beloved daughter. Everything changes in an instant when Anna tells an amazing story of a visit to heaven after surviving a headlong tumble into a tree. Her family and doctors become even more baffled when the young girl begins to show signs of recovering from her fatal condition.

Wow, what a touching story !  As most of us we hate to see a child suffering with illness and this story just grabs your heart and takes you into the reality of it. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy ! Being the mom of a type 1 diabetic son,  I can sure related to what it feels like to be in the hospital waiting for Dr’s to tell you what is wrong with your child. It is heart wrenching to say the least.  I knew right where she was at when her daughter wanted to just have things be over with.  Each time that my son struggled with being diabetic and hated doing shots just tore my heart and made me ache for what the rest of his life would be like.  I am proud to say that my son is now 26 , A wonderful father and a great daddy !   It is not that often that we hear of someone being healed, but when it does happen it is a great and mighty testimony of God working in the lives of those that love Him.

Do you think your loved ones not being healed is due to your sin  ?  Has someone told you that someone in your lives has sinned and that this is the reason for no healing ?  I have to say that this movie will show you just the opposite and that God is a Loving and Awesome God !

This movie just may change your life !

You can order your copy Here.

Watch and Be Blessed
