Word Filled Wednesday

"Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy:
who art thou that judgest another?"
James 4:11-12 (KJV)

The person with the tattoo...the single mom...the person with the different cultural background...the apparently able-bodied person with the handicap sticker.
We've all made assumptions of people based on our own stereotypes, and ultimately these assumptions are, in one way or another, judgments. "Oh, that person walks just fine, they don't need a disabled sticker" or "Oh, that girl has tattoos and lives in a single-wide, we know what kind of girl SHE is!" It's not fair, and the Lord commands us to refrain from having a judgmental spirit. Before judging, we need to look inward with a discerning spirit to determine whether a judgment is harmful or a part of daily life, such as judging the weather.

Thankful Journal

Get a new computer, and now I'm suddenly able to access my blog? Hm...

Anywho...I had every intention of writing up a bunch of thankful journal things to finish that project, and I did exactly that. 

1. I am thankful for family vacations...even if they are just pretend :)
2. I am thankful for a motivated husband.
3. I am thankful for God's will.
4. I am thankful for my childrens' imaginations.
5. I am thankful for the gift of salvation from the Lord God Almighty. AMEN!
