Sunday Scripture

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:16-19

Do people ever talk about morals anymore?

I'm not sure, but after some articles that I read, I don't think we talk about them enough for sure.

The first story was about a man on a subway that was shot on a relatively full subway car, but no one saw the shooter because they were too busy on their phones or computers.


I just thought that was sad.

Then I read an article about telling a "little white lie".  Now this wasn't one of those little white lies about how you look or anything like that.

No this was one of those white lies that you tell to someone to cover something up.

I wonder at what point a "little white lie", becomes a bold face lie.  

Is it when someone does it to you?

What happened to just being honest with people and telling them what you think?  I would much rather someone say something to me that might hurt my feelings than lie to my face.

We seem to be so wrapped up in trying to conform with what's happening in the world, that we don't remember what is right and wrong?  

Are we to the point that nothing is wrong anymore?  Or are we just not bold enough to say anything about it.  

I don't know, but I think it's sad.

And I pray that you and all God's holy people will have the power to understand the greatness of Christ's love-how wide and how long and how high and how deep that love is.  Christ's love is greater than anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will be able to know that love.  Then you can be filled with the fullness of God.
With God's power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.
Ephesians 3:18-20

That is hope for everyone!

Cleaning out the memories

One of my favorite things about Fall is getting out my pumpkins and beginning to get decorated for Halloween.

While I am getting my decorations down from the attic, it usually makes me aware of all the stuff that I am holding onto that is taking up space in the attic.

So this year, I have come to the decision that while I am getting my decorations down for fall, I will go through what some may consider to be junk, but I like to call it precious memories and get rid of what I don't need.

Now, it sounds simple when you say it.  Get rid of what you don't need, but then I come across Baby Girl's favorite baby doll when she was little and I just feel like I can't get rid of that.  

Or maybe it's Baby Boy's baseball glove from when he was little, the point is, I kept it because it held a special memory to me, and part of me doesn't want to let that go.

But, what I've come to realize is that I don't need to hold on to those things to feel all warm and fuzzy about my babies.  Our house is full of memories, most good, some not so good, but the memories aren't going anywhere.  Not yet anyway.

And I don't have to keep every single toy they ever had growing up to remember it.

They are as much a part of me as breathing, so I'll just hold onto that.  

Don't get me wrong, I am sure I will keep a few special things but I'm not going to get hung up on keeping every single thing that I just don't need.  

Maybe there is someone else out there who can use it to make new memories.

Loving Fall

I love Fall, it is my favorite season!

It starts to get cooler, and the sky just looks crisper.

It's like you can see everything clearer.

I love it.

I love how the leaves change.

It's Halloween time, and I love giving out candy to the trick or treaters!!!

This is my anniversary month so Mr. Wonderful and I will be going on our annual mini-vacation, all alone.  

So looking forward to that!!  

This month I am going to get to work on some projects around the house that I have been trying to get done.  

Happy Fall Ya'll!!!!
