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.

Proverbs 14:13 Laughter can conceal a heavy heart, but when the laughter ends, the grief remains.

My Thoughts
Our bodies, our souls,  was made to serve the Lord, to do what is right, to love one another. Our bodies grieve when we don't do what we were made to do.  We can go about acting happy... doing things that we think will make us happy.  We can try our best to hide our sadness...but when we go home at night and climb into bed we will feel that grief.  Shopping, partying, playing those things will not get rid of the sadness we feel when we are not doing what we were created to do. Only loving God, loving our neighbors, doing the things God ask us to do will get rid of the grief.  Our souls were made for love and serving the God... for serving other. To have a happy soul we need to love God with all our hearts, and love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:37).
