Scriptures to Meditate Upon

Erica gave me a list of scriptures she'd been meditating upon for the past few weeks. I've been using them lately too. Maybe they'll help you too. Pass them on.

Psalm 1

Proverbs 3

1 Corinthians 13

Colossians 2

1 Peter 3

Going Green

The children of this generation are much more intelligent than we used to be. My seven year old granddaughter is now "going green" and has started recycling anything and everything that can be recycled. I'm very proud. She asked me to do a series of blog posts about how important it is to recycle paper and medals, and to preserve water usage.

I hope that some of you reading this will be encouraged by her journey and begin your own green journey. Lord knows we are responsible for this planet and how we use its resources.

Your Support System

Do you have a support system?

In these times, being a part of a local church can be the best thing in the world. I'm not really one for those large churches where the pastor doesn't know your name, but for smaller family oriented churches. Those churches can be your lifeblood when you're ill or down in the dumps. The pastor and ministers come by and check on you, pray with you and often those churches have funds available to the needy in the church and community.

Other support systems include our families. Families have problems sometimes but they are still family. We need to understand that and learn to love our family past petty issues. Be there for one another and provide support when needed. My family is rather large because my mother had 4 sisters and 5 brothers. They all had at least two children. I make it a habit to email or send cards to family when I can. I stay in touch so they'll know I'm here if they need me.

Develop a support system because the time is near when you'll need one.
