A Little Rose: Sugar And Cream And Butter Dish Set...
May I encourage you all to make for yourself and those you love
"A place of refuge and peace"
We all know how things can seem very brash and worn out in our world;
It is as if the whole world needs a refreshing coat of paint.
I remember as a child that after the parade was over, the streets were
Littered with trash and cups and it all looked so dirty.
When I come out of a store now days the parking lots look so dirty.
The streets and roads have potholes, and homeless standing on all the corners!
As a woman that enjoys clean and organized;
And I love beautiful things, like flowers and teacups,
So with this all said, I might not be able to clean up all the parking lots
And help all the homeless people! I do pray for them, for God to heal
And not just as Savior, but to make Him Lord of their lives...
But I can create a place in our humble abode that just overflows,
With beauty and comfort and joy, And where it feels clean and fresh!
It is not tarnished by worldly trash...
I feel at times that my senses are being assaulted from the liberalism,
Don't act shocked...
It seems like we are seeing such a death culture;
Skeletons on even children's clothing,
Okay, maybe everything in this life is not all Roses,
But I know this for certain this skeleton and skull stuff is just plain wrong!
If we are going to overcome the negative in this world;
We better have a course of action;
We are going to have to put a bit of effort in choosing things that
Things of beauty and life, order and peace!
~God is the Master of order and life and beauty~
They call it art or self expression, but what it really produces is this,
Death of beauty
Death of life
Death of purity
Death of hope
So we must counter this culture with as many forms of purity of
To help this next generation survive and overcome a death mentality!
Make it a priority to have a home filled with lovely and life giving
Conversations and prayer and a good belly laugh...
Because we must live life to the fullness!
Tell your children what the real truth is behind these things;
They just want to fit in with their peers, but do not give in to them!
This is where we trust in the Lord when He says this,
They shall arise and call you blessed
(Arise= older and mature)
They really just want you to not give in and give them what they are asking for!
I wish I had been told NO more times in my childhood years;
I bet many of you out there would say the same thing;
Sometimes we just have to say NO...
