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.

Ecclesiastes 4:4-6 Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors.  But this, too, is meaningless--like chasing the wind.  "Fools fold their idle hands, leading them to ruin." And yet, "Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind."
My Thoughts
So often we are motivated by our need to "Keep up with the Jones'" when our motivation needs to be the needs of our family.  We often look over emotional needs because we are trying to give our children what "everybody else has."  We are always chasing "happiness" when happiness comes when we slow down and give each other love. When we give each other time.  When we give each other ourselves.  We are so much more able to do that when we give ourselves to God, so that He can take care of us while we take care of each other.
