I want to do a little brain teaser... not a really hard one... just something to make you think a little and give you a good laugh.
I own four cats, Marshmallow, Autumn, Sheba, and Mr. Whiskers. These cats sometimes get together for 'meetings'. On January 2nd, Mr. Whiskers, the youngest cat at almost 9 months, got into my dad's cereal and managed to knock half of it to the floor where he and Marshmallow were able to eat it. On January 26th, when my dad and mom were sharing a piece of apple pie my mom stopped guarding the last piece of pie from the cats to get something. When she returns Mr. Whiskers is helping himself to the piece of pie (which also has whipped cream on it). Mom puts him into the laundry/cat room for punishment. When she comes back, Marshmallow, oldest cat at 5 years old, is…Continue
So I started a small Bible Small Group with my friend Jenna on godgirl.us. This is the first message we've done so far:
Hey ladies! The first subject will be on self esteem. I know almost everyone struggles with this, but I want to let you all know something. God made you, and you are a beautiful work of art! Let's say you don't like your hair one day. (Everyone has those bad hair days) If you say, "I hate my hair so much," that is insulting the man who created you. He is probably up in Heaven saying, "Oh, I like your hair today. I think it looks really nice." It's not bad to think that your ugly, because I (Jenna) think that every day. There are so many beautiful girls in my class, and some days I just wish I could look like them. But, here's a verse for you: For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. -Psalm…Continue
From Kindergarten through 3rd grade, I attended a school called Wyomina Elementary. Then, in 4th and 5th grade, I changed to South Ocala Elementary. I remember that, in 3rd grade, there was a girl in my class called Rebecca, and she was bullied by the other kids.
The other kids said she picked her nose and put bugers on the table, said she was ugly, and treated her like an outcast. I used to make fun of her too, but just one day we were on the playground and I looked at her, dirty blond, curly hair and green eyes and thought; What were they talking about? She's not ugly and I've never, ever, seen her pick her nose or even act like she was.
So, one day I sat down across from her at lunch. At…Continue
If you notice, in Genesis 3, the first sin is committed by Adam and Eve. But they didn't admit it right away. Adam, even though he listened to Eve and eaten the forbidden fruit, blamed his sin on Eve. And Eve, though she had listened to the snake and eaten the forbidden fruit, blamed her sin on the snake.
It says in the devotional that: "When you believe that your messed-up life is because of something beyond your control, you give away the power over your own life that you so desperately want. As long as you are busy blaming someone else for your life, you'll never be free."
Whenever we get in trouble, we tend to look for who caused the mess we are in. Let me paint a picture:…Continue
