I’ll just leave this here…..
Those who guard their lips preserve their lives,
but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.
Anxiety weighs down the heart,
but a kind word cheers it up.
Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant
than pretend to be somebody and have no food.
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
but whoever hates correction is stupid.
Those who trust in their riches will fall,
but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.
For lack of guidance a nation falls,
but victory is won through many advisers.
Hey. We got home yesterday afternoon and things were going great. My new laptop came in early, so no more posting on my tablet. But the puppies died last night. First Sev then Dudley. We made sure none of us got attached to them this time, but it still hurts a bit. I know none of it was for nothing, these things happen for a reason. Tragedy sucks. Losing people you love sucks. I lost my granny a few years back, my mom lost her mother. She stayed with us for the last month of her life. When she passed we stopped going to school. We stopped going to church so often. We were trying to figure out how to deal with the loss. My siblings and I coped by playing with each other and bonding. My mom started researching homeopathic remedies to see if their was something they could have done to prevent this. Now all eight of us are homeschooled, my mom is a semi-expert on natural remedies, and those of us who knew granny tell the younger ones all about her. Reliving memories with her and sharing her life through stories. Losing her was the first major loss in my life. Sure, some great aunts and cousins, great grandparents and great uncles passed, but I never knew them. This was the first real tragedy to hit me. I was young, nine years old. There were only five of us then. It sucked, still does. But if she hadn’t died I would be a completely different person. I wouldn’t be so into books cause it was only after she was gone that I dove into the realm of fiction as a way out. I wouldn’t be me. The same goes with the rest of my family. Losing loved ones is the worst possible thing that could happen in this world, and it hurts so much. Like your heart has been shattered and might never be whole again. But these things happen for a reason. You might not be able to see the outcome, but He can. All this that’s happening to you right now will have an impact on the future. And it might not be your future that changes. Its sort of like a butterfly effect. Something happens and changes you, you go out and share with others who have been through, or are going through, the same thing. Sharing helps, and it makes and strengthens bonds that were weak or non-existent before. Next thing you know you’ve changed some ones life. They may have been at their lowest and needing a like soul to lead and guide them through their pain, and there you come in. You may make their life so much brighter. Because of the pain and loss that occurred in your life. Everything happens for a reason, everything can change a life for the better.
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more that all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
Love each and every one of you guys!
Lazy hands make for poverty,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son,
but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom.
The integrity of the upright guides them,
but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.
Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,
but righteousness delivers from death.
I always find Proverbs comforting, and I thought I’d share some of my personal favorites.
I have never watched Sherlock.
There is a “good reason” for this though- I’m not old enough to watch it. I saw maybe the first five minutes of The Abominable Bride, but we had to turn it off cause this lady decided to blow her head off. I escaped this ordeal unscathed, but the younger kids didn’t. I brought this up because I use a lot of gifs and pics from the show. There is also a “good reason” for this as well. Ready?
He is the reason I’m even into Sherlock Holmes. As some of you might know, I’m a Trekkie, and I got Star Trek Into Darkness well over a year ago. I fell in love with his character, Khan. Before this, my dad bought the complete Sherlock Holmes collection for my kindle. I tried to read it, and I was bored out of my mind! But after finding out that “the guy who played Khan” also played Mr. Holmes, I read through all of it in about three months. I kept thinking “How could I have thought this was boring?” I soon fell in love with Mr. Holmes, in case you couldn’t tell. If he were real he would probably think I was just a stupid little girl, and I would most likely blush. That being said, don’t be surprised to find out that I dressed up like him for Halloween ;)!
P.S I have 42 pictures/memes/quotes/gifs saved to my computer. And I will spend about half an hour looking through them daily, several times a day. .)
