2 Chronicles 25:2

"And he did that which is right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart."

A friend gave me a clipping last year of a bleeding heart plant. For a long time I waited and waited for it to bud. I was amazed at how it looked like a bud being held out by its petals. In other words, the heart is in sight. Only God knows our heart even when our deeds may look righteous on the outside. I think this relates to why we do not enter the Kingdom of God by works alone. The heart is deceitful. It is impure. But it is made righteous by the atonement and sanctification of Jesus Christ being invited into our lives. Only He can make all things beautiful.


Dear friend, please stop and take a moment to acknowledge that there is nothing we can do to earn our way into heaven. Jesus is the sinless lamb that died for our sins. Only He can be the perfect substitution for us to be allowed in heaven, for the wages of sin would be death.

Repent of your wrong-doings, acknowledge Him as LORD and invite Him to be a part of your life.

Proverbs 22:7

"The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender."

by Robin

Wow, I've sadly neglected my blog so I will try to remedy that now that made a little bit of room on the plate called my life.

Jack and I are still following Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University for 8 months now and we're down several thousands of dollars in debt. Our goal is to have another debt paid off in a couple/few more months. I'm so thankful that we took this class through our church because this economy is crazy.

Anyhow, it's been beans & rice, rice & beans for us. One of our family's favorite is 15 bean soup. Yummy!! My pressure cooker has reinvented the bean for me.

In the garden, my fall sunflowers have bloomed. I wish it felt like fall outside.
