Moments of Joy: September 2016

In last month’s post, I showed you what kind of clothing is worn by large shade trees. (Yes, you read that correctly.) This month has been unusual and hectic.  Since two computers “died” on me this summer — the second one is currently off for repairs — I lost my list of fun memories I had collected for September.  Since it is late in the evening, and I’m just now realizing this is the end of the month (already?!), I’ll share with you the thing that gives me many happy moments every month…

SCRIPTURE -- 2 Samuel 22:2-4 written on a photo of mountains

There’s a song on my “PRAISE” page which will help you memorize these bible verses.

Oh, and here’s another happy moment to wrap up this month:  My best friend of over 20 years called me today to say that the firstborn child she is carrying is a girl!  Ahhh, such excitement!  I’m so happy for her!

Thanks for stopping by today!  My blog has been neglected the last couple of months.  Maybe things will slow down soon, and I’ll have the luxury again to enjoy playing in the world of WordPress.  Though, I hear from many, many people that time only seems to fly faster the older you get!  How could that be?!  Wow!

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery…

…or it’s just plain funny!

The message behind this song can be interpreted in a positive way: show people your love through your actions because sometimes words alone are not enough to solve a problem.

In a 1991 newspaper article, Extreme’s guitarist described it this way:

…a lot of the time [love] isn’t real…People use it so easily and so lightly that they think you can say that and fix everything, or you can say that and everything’s OK.  Sometimes you have to do more and you have to show it — there’s other ways to say “I love you.”

~ Nuno Bettencourt

 

In other words:

By this we know love, that He laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.  But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?  Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

~ 1 John 3:16-18
