Mom, You’re The Best

“Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

She opens her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

She looks well to the ways of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.

Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain:

 but a woman that fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

Proverbs 31:25-30

Cheer up! It’s Contagious

Here’s a funny little story.

Last week our youngest daughter came home from school, and told me that her sixth-grade teacher has a very funny way of cheering herself up. She said that whenever her teacher is feeling low, she pops on a funny red clown nose, takes a drive in her car, and every time she stops at a red light, she turns and smiles at the driver next to her! I burst out laughing when I heard this and said,” That’s hilarious! She not only cheers herself up but others too, in the process! “

“A cheerful heart is good medicine…” Proverbs 17:22 ♥

Lesson from “A Christmas Carol”

“Darkness is cheap, and Scrooge liked it.”
– Charles Dickens

“And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light…”

John 3:19

“But even old Scrooge came around, and let the Light shine on his ways!”  :)

Suggestions Welcome

Suggestion Box!

I’ve just finished writing a book, and now I’m going through the process of finding an editor, and other finishing touches necessary for publishing. I have a few ideas, I’ve made a few contacts, and have already spent a great deal of time researching information, but I could really use some suggestions, and recommendations from you, and  would very much appreciate your input. You may have experience in this area, or you may be able to refer me to someone who’s been a big help to you. Even if you’ve never written a book, I ‘d love to hear your comments. You’ve been such a blessing to me, and this blogging experience has given me the boost I needed to finally write this book. I’d love for you to be a part of it too, so go ahead and let me know what you think!

Thank you and God Bless!

Faith

( If you’d like, I can keep your comment private, and I’d be happy to respond to you by e-mail, if necessary.)
