Just a Thought...

If we as Christians believe that working on the Sabbath (besides necessary jobs like preparing food and dishes) is against God's law, then why do we support people who do work on Sunday?? We stop at Walmart to pick up a 'last minute' snack for bible study or stop on the way to church for a coffee (guilty here!) , isn't supporting people who break God's law just as bad as doing it??

Just a thought.

Is Sunday Enough?

As we sit in the pew and listen to the sermon, do we take it all in? Do we really strive to listen, to learn? When the Pastor (or elder) dismisses us do we think about how to apply the message to our life or do we think about who we need to talk to.

So many times I think that 'Sunday is Enough'.
Enough....., what is the word I am looking for?

Enough Scripture, Enough learning, Enough 'Spiritual Bread' ,to get me through for days.

But is it?

'You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes....speaking of them {scriptures} when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.'

-Deuteronomy 11v18-19

I think that it is so easy to forget about our 'spiritual' needs. The needs that only God can meet.
It is so easy to get caught up in friends, blogs, books, and outside things, that we start to look to others (things) to meet our needs.
It happens to me all of the time. Instead of focusing on what is really important (God, Family) I start getting drawn away by simple things such as, the computer. Sure, I am not doing anything bad! Just looking at a few good Christian blogs, but a 'few' turns into more and more and more!
Consequently turning me away from God and Family. Those blogs have alot of GREAT things on them! Like minded girls, crafts, etc. but I am not going to accomplish anything they try to tell me if I am constantly on the computer.
I have started to wander from my point, so what I think I am trying to say is this:
Take Deuteronomy 11(18-19) to heart. Don't let Sunday be a one time event.
All week long meditate on God, Every morning, and Every night.
Whether it be a devotional or a psalms, give God everything you have, then go to the blog, friends, or books.

A Secret

A secret burns in my heart. I long to unlock it and let the whole world know. But if I do it will be ruined,stained,tarnished. If I tell, it won't be a secret anymore. If I let someone know, it will be discovered. So for now I will keep it inside, safe and sound.

Is this considered a post?? :-)

I was unofficially tagged by Jasmine
15 things I am not afraid to admit about myself:

1- It irks me that several radio stations are already playing Christmas music! Come on people, it is not even Thanksgiving much less December!!!

2- Like Jasmine, I have always wanted to get married early, and since I am only fifteen and a half I will still hold on to it for a little while longer! :-)

3- I get EXTREMELY nervous at recitals and speeches and I have one coming up in less than a month!
4- I am not a fan of peanut butter and chocolate (yes, that means Reese cups!). Actually, I really don't like mixing my peanut butter with anything (not even jelly).

5- Although I have always wanted to live somewhere where it snows and gets freezingly(is that a word??? :-) cold, I think I am happy right here where we get an inch tops.

6- While I am concerned about politics and I do care about what happens to our nation, it is not my favorite thing to talk about!

7-Most of my blog posts are in the drafts folder half finished!

8- I still cannot believe I deleted MY own blog.

9- Whenever someone asks me what my favorite book or movie is I can't think of it until much later (like laying in bed that night). I have read so many I am just not sure....:-)

10- I like riding around in a 15 passenger van, I am still working on driving the big thing!
11- I earn money by rubbing my dad's feet.....:-)

12- I rarely win anything, my brother is doing that for me! He has *won*
SEVERAL library contests, a free ride in a red baron plane (I would NEVER ride in that thing!), and numerous other things!

13-I have not understood football until this year! ( Go Bama!!!) :-)

14- I have friends of all ages!

15- My passion in life is to do the best I can at wherever God places me.

* I forgot to tag someone!!! Now let's see, who is up for this challenge?*I tag:


Now maybe one of you will do it!
