Mean LOL's (YOU know what they are...)

In light of our recent chat (Jami), I loved the first few verses of our Proverb for today:
1 Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense.
2 Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.
3 Doing wrong leads to disgrace, and scandalous behavior brings contempt.
Doesn't that fit in with my dealings with those Mean LOL's??? Even in dealing with loving those that hate/are indifferent/ignore/gossip about/etc in small towns....this makes so much sense (and still makes me sooooo sad!). sigh.

14 The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit? (I often wonder this!)

24 There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.
I'm so GLAD I have a handful of REAL FRIENDS....not just friends who are "real", but who are willing to be REAL with me....and who I can be REAL with....GENUINE....that's a better word.

Thank you Jesus, for my genuine friends, really. :)

In Galatians:
7 Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
I get this....but what about a workaholic?? is that overboard? Do I need to be more patient and "let them" work with enthusiasm?? This distresses me a bit....a current thorn in my side....

18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. (love this)

OH, and the "spiritual armor" stuff has always been a needed favorite in my life....just recently I was at the site for Good Characters ( http://goodcharacters.com/evangelists/armor.html ) and saw this "Armor" T-shirt.....very cool. We gave J/J the "love" t's years ago, and I love the new "truth" t too....it is on my "wish list" :) Give lots of business there if you buy stuff on line....good, loving, Christian, FRIENDLY, people. Not too many of those in the world!

ok....thundering again.....time to shut it down (and do the cake, the popcorn, then???pictures?...I'm all out of sinc here.....).

LOVE!!

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
