shew! that was close!

Yesterday I came home and had to cut the grass. For the second week in a row.

That's not my job at our house. And I wasn't happy!

I will tell you, my flesh was hot!

Phyllis always says I'm a 'hot momma' and I always roll my eyes... and yesterday I told her she was right 'hot-tempered momma'. It was a great day yesterday with the exception of that. and the creeper, it was beautiful.

Since I'm really trying to work on not being affected by my circumstances I went to the bible and my study. Asked Kevin for a scripture... and that scripture blew me away. WOW! God never fails. His Word is true, He is faithful, and It and He is RELEVANT! Amazing!

And sometimes, like Sara says, we've got to get out of our own way.

The scripture that blew me away? See below. May it work in your heart like it did mine.

Titus 3:3-8 3At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.



Hosea's wife - Brooke Fraser

I just spoke silence with the seeker next to me
She had a heart with hesitant, halting speech
That turned to mine and asked belligerently
What do I live for

I see the scars of searches everywhere I go
From hearts to wars to literature to radio
There's a question like a shame no one will show
What do I live for

We are Hosea's wife
We are squandering this life
Using people like ladders and words like knives

If we've eyes to see
If we've ears to hear
To find it in our hearts and mouths the word that saves is near
Shed that shallow skin
Come and live again
Leave all you were before
To believe is to begin

There is truth in little corners of our lives
There are hints of it in songs and children's eyes
It's familiar, like an ancient lullaby
What do I live for

We are Hosea's wife
We are squandering this life
Using bodies like money and truth like lies

If we've eyes to see
If we've ears to hear
To find it in our hearts and mouths the word that saves is near
Shed that shallow skin
Come and live again
Leave all you were before
To believe is to begin

We are more than dust
That means somethin'
That means somethin'
We are more than just
Blood and emotions
Inklings and notions
Atoms on oceans

We are Hosea's wife
We are squandering this life
Using people like ladders and words like knives

If we've eyes to see
If we've ears to hear
To find it in our hearts and mouths the word that saves is near
Shed that shallow skin
Come and live again
Leave all you were before
To believe is to begin


To believe is to begin
(Leave all you were before)
To believe is to begin, do-do-do-do do-do-do-do-do
(Leave all you were before)
To believe is to begin
