My Thoughts Today

Everyday, it seems like I am reminded that we are living in a time when integrity is being challenged. I think in order for us to walk everyday with integrity of heart, we must possess a heart that has been molded and shaped after God's own heart. He is the Potter we are the clay. I think our heart controls the integrity of the whole body. How our heart goes, so goes our character. Over the last month God has been showing me scripture and teaching me about the heart:
~ God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7)
~ Serve Him with your whole heart (1 Chronicles 28:9)
~ He knows the secrets of the heart (Psalm 44:21)
~ Create in me a clean heart (Psalm 51:10)
~ Thy word have I treasured in my heart (Psalm 119:11)
~ A joyful heart is good medicine (Proverbs 17:22)
~ Love the Lord wih all your heart (Mark 12:30)
~ With the heart man believes (Romans 10:10)
~ Make melody with your heart (Ephesians 5:19)
~ Draw near with a sincere heart (Hebrews 10:22)

We Are Still Among the Living...I Think?!

Our family, like many others this time of year, has been fighting nasty colds for the last month. This is my excuse for not blogging in almost a MONTH Taking care of my family is always a full time job but it is especially difficult when nobody is feeling well! Hopefully we will all be on the mend shortly. More later...just wanted you to know we are still alive, I think!
