I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Hebrews 10:24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.

My Thoughts
We are so bombarded by negativity... sitcoms are full of kids being disrespectful..... there is even a report of teenagers stomping another teenager to death... we have seen it in the movies and on TV... and in real life people standing around a fight and cheering the fight on... in fact people pay to go and watch people beat each other up..... people encourage each other to gossip.... What if we turned this all around!.... What if we cheered on our missionaries... what if a crowd of people cheered on somebody that took time to hug a friend... what if people cheered when somebody helped somebody carry their groceries... what if people cheered when somebody helped a person across the street... what if people cheered when they saw somebody give to the Salvation Army at Christmas...next time you catch somebody doing something good, and sweet and kind...somebody doing something loving take time to say I respect you!... take time to pat them on the back.... when you catch somebody doing something good today encourage them by letting them know that you notice that they choose to do good works... take time to cheer for the wonderful things around you!
