The Family that prays together stays together
Set aside time each day to pray with your spouse.
My husband and I have found that every night before bed is the best time for us. We ask God to fill us with His Holy Spirit, and I have it posted on my bedroom door. It brings us closer together as we care for each other every day. We think about each other through the day.Thank God for texting and cell phones. It's impossible to fall asleep angry when you've just held hands together in God's presence and praying. I Still hold his hand in public and at home.
Ephesians 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
Set aside time each day, or every night, to read the Bible together.
This might also be described as a time of devotions. My family and I began setting aside time each night to read the Bible and pray together my first gift i received from my husband was a plaque that reads the family that prays together stays together . We read to each other, either from the KjV Bible or from a devotional book, and then we spend a few minutes in prayer together.
Make Decisions Together:
Commit to making important decision together.
One of the greatest areas of strain in a marriage is finances. As a couple you should discuss your finances on a regular basis, even if one of you is better at handling $, like paying the bills and balancing the check book. Keeping secrets about spending will drive a wedge between a couple. keep no secrets always let your husband check your internet activity Face book has destroyed marriages when my husband and i started our christian walk we gave up all our time with our worldly friends usually when they see your different they dont come around.
face book can bring old friends around
Attend church together.
We always planned one night a week together sometimes just out for a milk shake.
I Knew one day it would be an empty nest and for years i prepared my self for this we plan things that we will do that we couldnt do with all the children.This will help so your not strangers when its only the two of you left.I Never let the children or grandchildren come between us.My husband was my number one friend to me before they were born and it will be that way after.
RED IS FOR THE BLOOD HE GAVE.
GREEN IS FOR THE GRASS HE MADE.
YELLOW IS FOR THE SUN SO BRIGHT.
ORANGE IS FOR THE EDGE OF NIGHT.
BLACK IS FOR THE SINS WE MADE.
WHITE IS FOR THE GRACE HE GAVE.
PURPLE IS FOR HIS HOUR OF SORROW.
PINK IS FOR OUR NEW TOMORROW.
A BAG FULL OF JELLY BEANS
COLORFUL AND SWEET,
IS A PRAYER, IS A PROMISE,
IS A SPECIAL TREAT
MAY THE JOY OF CHRIST'S RESURRECTION
FILL YOUR HEART AND BLESS YOUR LIFE.
Did you know that there are christian meanings for different colors. There are usually 8 colors of jelly beans.
The meanings are:
Red ~ the blood of Jesus that He shed.
Black ~ Our sin, His death, the final hour.
White ~ Pure and holy. The Blood's cleansing power.
Green ~ New Life that His death brings.
Purple ~ The Royal color, A reminder that Jesus is King of Kings.
Orange ~ is for the Holy Spirit Fire that glows,
Pink ~ is for the Infilling of the Holy Spirit that your life shows.
Yellow ~ is for the Joy & Celebration that Easter Brings.
For an Easter Project we fill clean empty jars with Jelly Beans and put the Jelly Bean Prayer on the outside of the jars. This makes a great Easter gift to give to friends, relatives, elderly people, and to make for a Sunday School Project. You can use small baby food jars or huge pickle jars, or any size in between.
I have had a wonderful day back at school. It was such a blessing to see all the children again.
I Got home with Caleb and he fell immediately when he got into the house, his crutches were wet I called the doctors office they told me to bring him in emergency but his sister came over and told me where the pain has subsided it should be fine.
Its been heavy on my heart to pray for a way i can go out Thursday with my church soul winning and invite people to come out for Easter. Caleb is usually with me.I am having a problem to find someone to go with me I get so excited when someone gets saved that I want the person I go with to have joy also but they don’t like it when I say the person I am with Wants to give you the plan of salvation. But for now I have got to find someone to go with me. The dogs didn’t work out people would rather walk on the other side of the street than come by two hound dogs. If only people could understand we got little time left if we have to get them through the roof to see Jesus then lets do it! Mark!2:4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay Some of Gods people today would come up with excuses why they cant go, I am scared of height Its family day the roofing materials will be too expensive. With me its usually too tired!
A Few months ago we canceled church on wed. and had it on Thursday I was discouraged but someone thought the RU Program we have is on Thursday i happened to be in the nursery when a lady came in and asked when is RU She didn’t have time to go upstairs to the church service but she listened to the gospel and God used me to witness so she could got saved that night.

Back to school
A big day ahead!Back to school
as I Was reading
Duet.23:21 When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.
Duet. 23:22 But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee.
I Can remember when one of my teens lost some $ and could not tithe He made a vow if God would show him where he lost it he would make up for it next week.It was found in a puddle where other people walked right by it.the next week came and he spent it.right after that he lost his job.Its always been proven Gods word is our instruction manual.
The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright:but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.Prov.15:1
Stand in awe,and sin not:commune with your own heart upon your bed,and be still Psalm 4:4
