Bible Reading Plan

 
 
Bible Reading
 
We are on the thresh hold of another new year.
It is a new beginning of so many things.
It is a great time to re-examine  your daily Bible reading
schedule. Or maybe to use a new Bible all together.
 
I have just started a new Bible study myself, it will help me
to get focused. I need to get back on track, after the busy
holidays. My morning time with the Lord needs to be
refreshed and organized,
 
Here is a list of a few ideas:
  1. Clean off the area you will be using (desk, table etc.)
  2. Get a new journal for notes and prayer request.
  3. Have your concordance and a dictionary handy.
  4. Have a good pen and a highlighter.
  5. Choose a couple of good devotionals to read.
  6. Get yourself a copy of a Bible reading chart.
  7.  Use a Bible you can write and highlight in.
Make a place ready to meet with Him.
May you cherish your quiet time,
and it becomes a treasure to you.
 
Be a wise women and seek Him daily!

Here is a web sight to print out a Bible reading plan
for this New Year 2013

Go to Discipleship Journal
There are 4 different plans to choose from.
Print and enjoy!

Christmas Day

The Stable
Where Christmas Started
Oh come let us adore Him





May you find comfort in
this season.


Salvation that gives purpose of living.
Thanksgiving that beholds God

Hope that keeps us in Christ until heaven or until He returns

Truth that will prevail over every false thing
Faith that does the impossible for God
Light that defeats all darkness
Joy that is strength beyond conditions or feelings
Freedom to please & glorify God with your life
Peace that ministers rest of heart, trusting in God's Word
Forgiveness beyond human ability that heals relationships
Blessings that ministers generosity
Life eternal that conquered death, hate and hell
An everlasting Love that redeems to full GLORY


This amazing poem is from a friend!

Thank-you to all
who share the gospel!





May the warmth of His love fill you

Blessings, Roxy

SWEET WORDS

 




Happy First Day of Winter
 
Today is the new beginning of another season.
May we not grow weary in doing good.
 
We are in the last few days of Christmas preparation's,
and baking and wrapping and visiting friends.
Family members may be arriving for Christmas.
 
It may seem like something is coming to an end,
Ye, another season and new beginning is come.
 
I always like to make a challenge
for myself, each new season.
This season is to:
Be mindful of my words...
 
SWEET WORDS
 
Put on tender mercies,
kindness, humility,
meekness, longsuffering.
Colossians 3:12
 
Sometimes in the hurry and bustle
we can become careless and hurt those
we love ,with our words.
Like one gals blog she said lets not be Grinchy
 
Instead of hurling angry words
That wound and stir up strife,
Use words of kindness, filled with love,
That heals and nourish life. -Sper
 
I pray everyday that the Lord
would set a guard over my mouth.
 
Blessings To All, Roxy

Happily Married


Christmas Memories

 
When I stop to think of all the Christmas's past. my heart
wells with love.
For because of God's great mercy He gave me
a husband that loved me well.
 
It was not always as great as it is now.
But there was so many things we did not understand, or know about
in those first couple of years.
 
A great marriage is a relationship
that must be nourished and prayed over daily.
It is learning to love and esteem the other better then yourself.
 
It is about putting them first and his needs.
 
Dying to myself was most painful as a young
self centered spunky gal.
 
As a newly married women I had no one to mentor me in
 the skills of being a Godly women.
And most importantly a Godly wife.
 
We both new something was not right, but we had no
examples to follow and we had no maturity
in the word of God.
 
But in God's great mercy he made us aware of a  conference,
that was for marriages.
We went and it was a whole weekend filled with:
How to have a Godly Marriage.
 
What we learned that weekend was truly a gift from the Lord.
The truth is not always easy.
But the truth will always bring life , love and hope.
 
My desire and prayer as I walk in this marriage,
is to be an example to others.
And to have an encouraging word.
 
Marriage is what God had in His heart,
so we had someone to share this life with.
 
Encourage yourself in your own marriage,
and make the effort to honor and cherish your mate.
 
Ask God for the help and resources you may need,
to make your marriage strong, and wonderful.
I still reach for my books to read about how to be a Godly wife.
It is like a good recipe, tried and true,
yet at times you need to add a little pinch of this,
or a dash of that.
 
Blessings,Roxy

Jolly St. Nick

Jolly St.Nick
 
I so enjoy the idea of the history of
St. Nicholas.
What the whole history is I don't know,
but the concept is the idea of giving.
 
It is wonderful to give!
Yet this can be a time where we give things that are
just stuff.
 
What is it that people really need?
 
"Not toys or stuff"
 
But rather something that will not perish
or fad away.
 
I want to shout from the roof tops to tell everyone,
of the wonderful gift, that was given to me.
 
My heart jumps with laughter and glee:
For my saviour
JESUS CHRIST
saved me!
 
So, now let me give YOU,
the gift he has given me.
 
Ask Jesus to come into your heart,
and ask Him to lead you and guide you
in His narrow way.
 
Now, you will know the most famous
giver of ALL.

For God so loved the world he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life.
John 3:16

Have a blessed Christmas everyone!
 
Blessings, Roxy

Hubbies Day

I Told You There Would Be Days Like This!
 
 
I just wanted to give a glimpse of my hubbies day yesterday.
 
Honey, I am gonna take your car in for an oil change.
I am gonna get new wiper blades put on also,
just in case we ever get any moisture.
 
Ok, I say to him.
 
He leaves early morning with no breakfast,
I say honey aren't you gonna eat?
No I will just grab a cinnamon roll.
 
An hour later the phone rings...
Well Rox, your two front tires are shot,
"What! we put two new ones on just last year
they were suppose to last a long time"
 
Well, the alignment was out on your car and now there ruined.
 
Ok, I say to him.
 
An hour later the phone rings...
Well Rox , your brakes are shot on your car!
 
"What you gotta be kidding me"
 
Well your brake pads are shot also on all four wheels.
and the rotors are ruined on the back.
I am gonna have to go to the bank!
 
An hour later the phone rings...
 
Can you come get me?
 It's gonna take a few hours to get the brakes done.
 
I drive into town and pick him up at the garage.
 We go eat as he is starved.
 
We had a nice lunch and we talked.
We had to laugh,
as you have all had one of those days.
 
I did get my oil changed :)
 
 
My hubby takes such good care of me!
 
Blessings, Roxy
