I heard this on a show I was watching and wrote it down. It is good and true yet quaint (I like that word!) :
“I endeavor to always forget the words of idle tongues.”
I will work on practicing the words of the wise woman who made this statement. One way I can endeavor to forget it is by putting my mind on higher things. Things like this:
Beauty, goodness, peace, and joy – set your mind on such things (also, on any pretty flowers you may find in YOUR yard)!
I have always been a lover of words! Big ones, small ones, unusual ones. I am thankful for the ability to speak, to listen, to comprehend words.
I was praying this morning asking God to speak to me. He spoke of His peace, beyond understanding. How can God fill us with a peace that can’t be understood or EXPLAINED! When you ask for it, it comes, sometimes it comes without asking but it is one of the greatest gifts God gives. It came to me that it is INEXPLICABLE. So in other words don’t ask me how it happens BUT I am here to testify that it does!
Many other marvels are far beyond our understanding. One such wonder is the formation of ice crystals. See below:
A River of Frozen Clusters.
God’s Creative Sculptures
Feather in Ice
Suspended in So Many Directions.
Something else I will never understand is “WHY?”, on the police/detective tv shows, the females all run around in tank tops under their bullet-proof vests while the males all wear their heavy duty jackets over theirs. Or why, on the morning tv talk shows, the women all wear sleeveless dresses and the men all wear ties and suit coats! Aren’t most women ALWAYS cold! And turning up the heat so that we aren’t! Sheesh! Tell me why?
December is almost half over, hopefully Christmas preparation is well underway in your home. I thought I would attach a few pictures of my doggies
and my front porch decor!
Mr. Christmas Elf
May God’s INEXPLICABLE peace fill you with the Christmas spirit of joy and love! For unto us a Savior is born!
