1/3/2021 Just a few words of wishing you from the depths of our hearts a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

12/27/2020 Deep in thought? At some point during the day you most likely will be thinking deeply and seriously about something.  This week my wise and handsome husbandman is talking about "pondering" He's a deep ponderer! I advise you to read what Thaddeus has written because it's going to lead you to wise pondering!

12/20/2021 Be certain your spiritual foundations are right and solid in the Word of the Lord and His foundational principles and so also will the foundations you build in the natural be! If your heart and motives are right before the Lord He will lead and guide you to build strong solid foundations in both the spiritual and natural that will be worth your while and stand.

12/13/2020 So why  do you trust in and believe what you believe? Is it because you have proof or is it just your thinker thinking and possibly being deceived without full proof of what you trust in and believe?Just because somebody told you it's so doesn't make it so! So check out all sides of the matters because it can make all the difference in you life matters. Deception can go deep and be very convincing until you find out there's a truth you didn't  investigate for yourself. Don't be stubborn and stick to your guns without looking into details or you might just be one of the deceived. 

12/7/2020 Having a heart owie? Troubled in spirit? Feel as though you're going through the trial of a lifetime? Don't take it to heart. Pour out your heart before the Lord and let Him heal the throbbing troubling owies laying the heart owies before His great throne of grace. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. During these times dwell in the secret place of the most High abiding under the shadow of the Almighty. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God because he cares about your heart! With Thanksgiving?...YES!!! Because He's listening for you, watching for you to come, caring and loving you! He wants to walk with you, talk with you and make it alright and restore you to all rightness! If your troubled heart is because of wrongdoing be sure to check your heart and spirit for contriteness! Seek Him. Seek His presence!   

11/30/2020 Go ahead, wonder, question, do your research and think it through carefully in prayer before God's great throne of grace. I's all part of developing relationship with God, drawing closer to Him and finding the truths you need to walk in for success. By the way it's most likely God's Holy Spirit stirring those questions within so they can develop relationship with God and draw you closer to Him, and get your questions answered if you look heavenward to the right source!

11/232020 If you don't ask and you don't seek you just might not find what you're looking for! So open peepers; both physical and spiritual and pay attention to Matthew 7:7and 8. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you: For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened". Just be sure you're asking the right source!

11/16/2020 Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS! Again I say REJOICE! When you're in the Lord even when misery and sorrowful circumstances surround you, you'll always find reasons to rejoice! Sure we're human (well some of us anyway) and we can get downcast at times but with Christ in our hearts we'll always bounce back to happy rejoicing!   There's always that faith and hope and knowing and trusting that God is who He says He is ...Faithful Almighty, and He is the God of His Word! Remember...He's gone before you in every situation! EVERY SINGLE ONE!!! And He's watching after you with love and mercy and everlasting kindness. When He's with you and  you're with Him there's always reason to REJOICE!

11//9/2020 Don't ever never think you're gonna get away with it if you're cheating, lying, deceiving and doing wrong!Sooner or later being nasty and deceptive WILL catch up with you and you'll pay a price you may not be happy with. In fact I'm sure you won't be happy so... fess up and fly right! Ask God for forgiveness and change your ways! There's a lot that concerns you He has and is willing to pay for on your behalf. THANK YOU JESUS!

11/2/2020 What's in a name? A lot! We're known by our name; Good, bad, indifferent... Doesn't mean what people think they know about us and our name. It's what is true that really matters...And God knows what is true.

10/26/2020  Meaning communicates something that is not always directly expressed. What's the meaning you're personally wanting to convey to others about yourself? Are you looking for a meaning to communicate? Are you looking for personal meaning because you don't feel you have a meaning to express? Think about it. And think about the fact that you can have some choices in your meaning and while you're at it, mean to have worthwhile expressive meaning!

10/19/2020  Have courage! Not always easy when the cards of evil seem stacked against you. Keep in mind that satan is an illusionist. He majors in deception so making it look like he's going to win doesn't mean he will! In fact ...he's always a looser. Sooner or later he's gonna get his just deserts and every evil thing he tries will fail for him in the end. Further more, God is working it all for our good! OK, you might not see or feel it right away and sometimes it takes a lot longer than what we would like to experience God's victory and we go through circumstances we'd rather not go through, but it's all part of the illusion satan himself is defeated by. With Christ we always win!

10/12/2020 Some people say "It's a dog's world" some "A woman's world" But let's be truthful; It's God's world. Treat it so!

10/4/2020 When someone is bending over backwards to try and show you God's mercy through correction and discipline of the right ways of God don't run the other way. Receiving God's  mercy is going to be a whole lodda bunches easier than the wrath you're going to bring on yourself if you resist God's correction. Recognize that there's always a price to pay if you want true mercy for your errors but it's nodda in comparison to the price you'll pay of you go you're own way. Seek God for a heart of true repentance and receive His mercy! 

9/27/2020 You can lead a horse or other critters to water but you can't make em drink. So true and sadly so sometimes. Dry parched and thirsting to death you can lead a person to living water and they still might not drink, but at the least they have the chance to quench their earthly empty thirsts. Yes indeedie; Lead them to the free flowing LIVING WATERS of JESUS CHRIST and let them know they will never thirst again if they drink from that fountain of life!

9/21/2020 What will tomorrow bring for you? Are you prepared and ready for tomorrow and the unknown? Preparation for the unknown begins in your heart mind and attitude. If you're right on the inside when the unexpected comes you'll come through tomorrow come what may because you are prepared not to be fretful or bent out of shape for any length of  unnecessary time when a curve ball flies your way. Some surprises do take time to work through and heal from but remember Philippians 4:6,7.  which says;   Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;  and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus".

9/14/2020 Warn the wicked doers and be a true watchman; watching out for the good in others that is dormant...or OK... sometimes totally nonexistent.  They might be turned fro wickedness and darkness to the light in Christ and righteousness can possibly be instilled in them.  Be kind and attentive and prick their conscience with encouragement from God's Word, if they have any conscience and contagiousness at all and urge them on to good works iffin your heart and conscience is being convicted that what they're doing  is wrong. If they hear you then you  just may save a soul from going the wrong direction downward... if you get my drift! If they won't listen, they don't want to hear you, and they mock, scorn, call you names and think you're wrong at least you've done the right thing.

9/7/2020  If you have true love in your heart you'll do anything to save another from certain eternal death.Even if they've wronged you you'll  still care for their soul. No matter what they think you'll follow scripture and maybe even save yourself. "When I say unto the wicked, You shalt surely die; and you give him not warning, nor speak  to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand. Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you hast delivered your soul. Again, When a righteous man does turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because you hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul.

8/31/202 Warn the wicked when needed!. Give em truth from scripture and deliver your soul!  "If thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul".

8/24/2020 Seek to be pure in heart in God's eyes.  Matthew 5:8 says "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God". That means you can perceive Him, know who He really is if your heart is pure and you'll be conforming to His image. "God Himself shines in our hearts to illuminate the knowledge of the glory of Himself in the face of Jesus Christ". I Corinthians 4:6. When something is pure, it is not mixed with contaminants; like worldly doings, things, thoughts or expressions. So if your heart is pure before God it will be reflecting the heavenly image of the Son of God, Jesus and expressing pure heavenly communications. Simply put; there won't be any icky inside you that come out.  

8/10/2020 Greed makes your heart blind. The only corrective lenses that will enable you to see come from the Word of God and prayer. Seek them out and be delivered of selfish self-centered gain.God will supply your need and you'll have no need for greed! 

8/3/2020  Keep moving forward! Moving backwards or standing still will only take you past points you've already passed and don't need to pass by again. Standing still will keep you stagnant whereas moving forward will launch you towards new adventures in life that are waiting to be lived out!!!

7/27/2020 Keep your mind and peepers on target with your tasks and look well into whatever matters really matter. You've heard what they say... "The devil is in the details" So check out all the details with careful consideration and prayer.  Don't overlook the necessaries. Look well into your doings before doing!

7/20/2020 Some matters need to moved on quickly. Like taking the sour milk out of someones hand before they drink it and it needs to be done in one fell swoop without hesitation or second thinking the situation! If you know it's right just move swiftly and do it!!!

7/13/2020 Get ahead of the game !!!Stay on top of things and finish what you're doing and then move on. Multi tasking is OK to a point, but if it causes you to neglect getting done what needs to be done and you're late you're not rally one step ahead of the game; you'll find you're re behind!

7/8/2020 Keep cool! Not talking temperature  but temper cool. Don't loose it and get all hot-headed and blow your cool because if you do your personal person temperature could rise and you just might blow a gasket, overheat and who knows what could happen to your entire personal person after that? Stay cool, calm and collected!

6/29/2020  Be found a virtuous woman if you are a woman aiming to be a woman of God!  "Who can find a virtuous woman?For her price is far above rubies". Proverbs 31:10.That means you'll be found to be  righteous, good, moral, morally correct, ethical, upright, upstanding, high-minded, right-minded, right-thinking, principled, exemplary, clean, law-abiding, lawful, irreproachable, blameless, guiltless, unimpeachable, just, honest, honorable, un-bribable, incorruptible, and anti-corruptible! Pretty squeaky clean in God's eyes!

6/22/2020  Always stay ahead of the game! Five  minutes early can be twenty  minutes late sometimes... so think about being where you've got to be early so you're sure not to be late!Think about it...I was early to a sale one day. but I was later than some other folks getting there earlier than I and so I was too late to get what I wanted to get because it was already gotten by the folks who beat me there and got my intended gettings. Think about it.

6/15/2020 Temper temper! Don't allow it to rule you. If you're a hot-head your bound to act hastily,end up hurting yourself and loosing out on more than you may have counted on in the first place. In fact you're apt to end up paying for something you didn't want to pay for because your uncontrollable self set yourself up for a fall. The descend of the fall could be long and full of sorrows.  "He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalts folly". So to all you hot-heads out there... Submit that temper to the Lord and ask Him to help you be of a gentle spirit!Or else...there might be some "if only I had kept my temper and hadn't acted hastily moments to unhappily face with regret in your life!

6/8/2020 Let people think what they want about you. Pray for them but no sense in trying to convince or make them see the light of truth when their minds have been made up. God alone can do that. You've heard they're talking behind your back and never bothered to get your side of the story. That just let's you know they've already made up their minds and besides...It's a blessing in disguise. How so? You now know, since they never came to find out your side of the story what kind of friend they are and what kind of spirit they carry and what their friendship is really worth.God just did you a favor by letting you know they may not be worthy of your friendship or your time.

6/1/2020 Decline answering if you're asked to answer questions you don't know the answers to. Be honest if you don't know and simply admit it. It never hurts to just say "I just honestly don't know the answer to that one, but I'll put it to some prayer". Sometimes dead silence is wise; you can choose to bow out gracefully and let people wonder if you know the answers or not.

5/25/2020 Thank you Lord God for our Veterans! Thank YOU Veterans for fighting for our freedoms! God Bless each and every one of you!

5/18/2020  If you're goal is doing nothing you're going to have a hard time because you'll never know when you're done. So my advice is do something, understand about how long it should take, stay within reasonable time limits and make sure it's something worthwhile doing before you start.

5/11/2020 Share your smile with someone today! Share your smile with someone tomorrow! Share your smile with someone everyday!!! Share a smile with yourself, keep it inside and share it outside too!

5/4/2020  USE IT OR LOOSE! There's a couple of ways of looking at that. N0.1. If you have something in your possession and you're not using it and it's worth while to someone else... Give it away! No. 2. If you have something like a gift or Atalanta and you're not using it...you could loose it...as in not putting it to good use. So ; USE IT OR LOOSE IT.

4/27/20  "Die to yourself and live unto Christ"! Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that from now on we should not serve sin. The place you give life to sin is in you... but Jesus Christ was sinless so Beloved...Exchange your life for the life of Christ living within you and destroy sin!

4/20/2020 April showers bring May flowers and more! Time to start getting the garden, the seeds and plants ready. The sun will be shining longer to make those veggies and flowers grow so be ready. Ans while you're at it grow in the Lord because all year long the Son of God is shining!Plant some seeds from the Holy Bible Words of God and let them grow in your heart, mind, soul and body! And when the crop comes in...share the harvest abundance with everyone you can!


4/6/2020  Some great advice for you today and for every day!  "DON'T believe a lie and make certain that you are not the one making a lie to share with others and don't lie to yourself too neither" ! Know yourself and know God. Let Him love in you and you won't have to be concerned about lies!Love the truth!

3/30/2020   What's your problem? I'm not getting personal and I'm not even asking you to share your problem with me. Everyone knows I'm not nosey. But, but, but, if you've got a problem I'm here to advise you where to take it. The best place to solve the issue will be in prayer before God's Great Throne of Great Grace. He's waiting! He loves you! 

3/23/2020 All of us are going through uncertain times. Time to press into prayer and follow after God's heart! Read, listen to and obey His Voice and His  Will and His Word and His Ways! Ever get the sense that you might play a part in a major world scenario? Let's all of us as God's children consider if  II Chronicles 7:14 might be part of the part we need to apply to our lives. "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land".

3/16/2020 "Ever get that uneasy feeling? Ya know...something doesn't feel right ! Like something is about to happen and it's not going to be good. The Holy Spirit is urging you to urgent prayer. Whatever it is that's  is coming, you're felling uncomfortable because you need to get with God, seek Him and ask Him to prepare you in prayer. He may let you know what it is or He may not. Either way know or not you can be ready if you get with God and ask Him to guide, direct and protect you and others! Be prepared at all times!

3/9/202 "So, those if you reading my advice noticed that for the last three weeks my Thaddeus and I have been quoting the same scriptures. There's a reason for that. We've been talking amongst ourselves and it's important! DO IT! "And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live. ". Deuteronomy 30:6. In that I command you this day to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that you may live and multiply: and the LORD your God shall bless you in the land where you go to possess it.Verse 16 same chapter.

3/2/2020  "A lawyer, asked Jesus  a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law?Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like to it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."Matthew 22:32-38DO IT!

2/24/2020 "Love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might". Deuteronomy 6:5 Not a choice if we belong to God. "And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart" vs.6. DO IT!

2/17/2020 How are your peepers? Have you ever considered that you may be seeing eternal thing happen right before them but the only perspectives you're comprehending right now are temporal? You may not have the whole picture, see everything God is doing and therefore you're not getting the eternal purpose behind the happening. You're on a need to know basis and right now resign yourself to the fact that you may not yet need to know. If  and when you do God will let you know what you need to know.  Praise His Holy Name!!!

2/10/2020 You may think I'm not a deep thinker but, but, but I am! I think and consider and pray about probabilities, possibilities , availabilities and all sorts of abilities and even what seem to be impossibilities...then after I have consulted the highest authority, God Himself and His Holy Word I offer His advice and His abilities so that expands all the probabilities, possibilities, availabilities and all sorts of abilities and also makes nothing impossible with Him.   

2/3/2020 It's cold outside and for some in our nation inside too! Be sure and check on those elderly neighbors and those others you know that might have some needs. and just a little extra advice :In the winter months  when using the oven keep these super savings tips in mind. First of all it's OK to turn your oven off 10 minutes or so before the meal buzzer goes off. And when you take your meal out of the oven, leave the door open for a while sharing the interior heat with the house and yourself! Keep safe and warm!!!

1/27/2020 Recently met someone whose out to deceive a lot of other people for self gain.My advice is "REPENT" because the only gain you're going to gain in the long run is the loss of your soul if you don't.

1/20/2020 You'll notice in the picture above both Puddles and myself are enriching our lives by reading. Well OK I'm reading and Puddles is listening but I digress: Point is this week I'm encouraging you to pick up a good book and read. The Bible of course, daily!!! but but, but you can be enriched by reading and studying and pondering over the thoughts recorded by others in lot's of places like in newspapers, novels, magazines, and sometimes even by reading the fine print on boxes and bottles. Fact is you can pick up some facts or simply enjoy a well written fictional account. Puddles and I enjoy some fiction, but personally favor real true life story accounts about missionaries and those who have been in service to God. Check some of those out; be enriched and enjoy!

1/13/2020 Give the best advice! How do you know what the best advice is?Open Bible pages after prayer. You'll find it.

1/6/2020 For the most prosperous new year for your soul we advise you to tune in more frequently than ever before for lot's more really good continuing advice from the scriptures through diligent continued reading of the Holy Bible!

12/30/2019 Me n' Puddlie-Poo are echoing the sentiments of my handsome husbandman! Any day now we have a NEW YEAR to welcome! Welcome it with a clean heart, clear conscience and New Hope, Dreams and Expectations! And have a very Happy and Blessed one!

12/23/2019 Take a moment to ponder over friends neighbors and even strangers that might need a touch of love from God during this season!And consider how you night be used to be an extension of His Love! You can make someones Christmas a whole lot MERRIER and filled with the love of Christ!

12/16/2019 Get busy, creative and crafty and get to wrapping  those presents for the Christmas Celebration of the Birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! But, be sure to wrap your heart with love for Jesus and your fellow man and womankind and  of course extended family members like Puddles and friends and everyone!

12/9/2019  We're closing in on the Christmas Holiday. The days before are filled with celebrations, family friends, parties, sharing, hustling and bustling but be sure to prepare your heart for the biggest day of celebration! The birth of Christ Jesus our Lord! Think about spending time with Him personally because...It's all about Him!

12/2/2019 It's that time of year when friends and families think about visiting one another and loving on each other...but,but,but... some people won't be or be able to do that because of finances, distance, other difficulties or sadly because of breaches between them like unforgiving, bitter spirits that rule and reign over their lives. I'm in the prayer closet seeking God's forgiving heart to become theirs. No one will be more miserable during what should be the most festive time of the year than these, well I call them "grim reapers" . They live in all the negatives of anger, resentment, emotional wrath and everything contrary to the reason came to earth for...to forgive us of our sins and sinful nature and naughty doings. The grim reapers are NOT following the way the truth and the life that Christ Jesus came to demonstrate. What the unforgiving grim reapers  are reaping is their own grim atmosphere. Their root of bitterness is doing to them exactly what the Bible says...springing up, defiling them and many. They ruin the happiness they personally could be enjoying, if they could just muster up a true  forgiving spirit and  leave the past where it belongs...in the past. It's really simple for the pure in heart and motive, but for those who focus on satisfying self , reaping vengeance , punishing others and constantly pointing at  the wrongdoings of others forgiveness becomes more and more increasingly difficult. So I'm praying for them and pray you will too so they don't have to continue being tormented and tormenting others. A true forgiving spirit smooths the path to Christ-like relationship. "Love" after all "covers a multitude of sins"  I Peter 4:8.

11/25/2019 "Bee in your bonnet? Come on now it's winter and you still haven't let that bee go? Keeping that bumblie on top of your noggin; for what? It's bound to get antsy and when it does you could be in for an owie soooooooooo put a nix to the thing that's keeping you keeping the bee in your bonnet! The or else is too risky to risk.

11/18/2019 "Clear direction" Have you ever moved just because you wanted something without having clear direction? Come-on; get real; you know when you've moved on what you've wanted in spite of the fact that there's been that little or sometimes big huge gargantuan warning inside your head and heart. It was all connected to your spirit and to God's spirit and He wants what's best for you so He sent the warnings. Heads up! Pay attention to the warnings!! We should all have learned from the times we've trespassed paying attention and moved from waiting for clear direction that it didn't go well soooooooooooo... wait for clear direction and just be a knowin... The only really true clear direction comes from God. Prayer bones and bowed heart make ready to seek the Lord!

11/11/2019 Don't let your mind wander. Get a hold of your thoughts. Don't let your mind run a muck! It will try to get away from you during the day and keep you dwelling upon troubling thoughts that will torment your soul, but you can have control.Keep your mind stayed upon the Lord and you'll be kept in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3).
