Homekeeper Journal 1/25/11

Today's blog entry prompts in bold are provided by Sylvia over at http://www.christianhomekeeper.org/.  Check her out for good ideas each week and other people's entries with the same prompts. 

In my Kitchen today …..

so far I’ve eaten Wheat Thins and canned cheese. We all had the stomach yuck this past weekend and are slowly working our way back to the living, gastronomically speaking.

Proverbs 1:5 says: Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance – What this means for me is …..

that even if you think you know everything there is to know, you’d better keep an ear out anyway. And even if you think you understand something fully, there might just be someone out there who could help you because they know just a little bit more.

Proverbs 17:10 tells me that “A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool.” – So I know that …..

Proverbs 13:15 talks about favor – “Good understanding gains favor, but the way of the unfaithful is hard.” –

You have the choice to go it alone, but if you do, good luck. Don’t expect a bed of roses, and don’t expect to find favor with God while you’re out on your own limb.

And finally, Proverbs 20:5 tells me that “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out” – This is important for me because ……

My mom always said, “What’s in your heart will eventually fall out your mouth.” Usually those things that fall out of my mouth are in the shallow waters, but if you stick with me, you just might get to the heart of what I’m talking about.
