Wow-can you believe it is 2010 already?! I've always said, once I turned 21 the years have flown by--yes, I sadly wanted to be 21 so very much-I knew there was a whole new world out there I was missing--such foolishness, I hope my children will be wise enough to know better!
So this got me thinking on the bits and pieces of wisdom I've been given or been blessed to learn...
~My grandmother once said to me in my young days, being a new wife and then mother, "there is always enough food..." This was in response to feeding others at my home, such as surprise visits or simply thinking there wasn't enough food for so and so to come over. She has always been right-it may not be an exquisite meal but you'd be surprised what you can come up with when in need...and it is more about the fellowship than the actual meal.
~My mother said to me before I got married, "never use bad language towards eachother." I am so grateful for these words, especially since I didn't have a relationship with the Lord when hubby and I were first married. I'm thankful for the respect we've given eachother with this and now know the importance of it...we must guard our tongues...just words out of a mouth in a moment of heated emotion but like daggers in the heart, and satan will use these words to continue to cause strife and division in a relationship unless forgiveness is present.
