Scripture Page ... Understanding .. ( i know its not the word for the week but please read)

Have you ever stopped and asked your self why , Or searched for a understanding about why things happen or the events of life and even the little things why things are the way they are ? I have more times then I can count and for the last few weeks the word UNDERSTANDING has been weighing in my thoughts alot so I decided to look it up on bible gateway and see just what was said , Wow was I ever amazed with just what I came across , As always the bible has the best stories and the easiest ways about helping some one to understand things ! Theres that word again , The Colossians 1-9 and 2 Peter 1-5 were my two most heartfelt ones that stood out to me Especially the Colossians one it touched me in a way I'm not sure how to describe but it was pretty powerful , We have a God that doesn't judge or fault but forgives us and its pointed out just how understanding he is in that verse, As always i added the other Scriptures that stood out to me and they are written on my page as well .. Thanks for stopping by I am sorry its not the word we are all on but as i stated I was so drawn to do this word , I will do wisdom in the next few days ! Have a blessed day !

Proverbs 2:1 [ Make Insight Your Priority ] Good friend, take to heart what I'm telling you; collect my counsels and guard them with your life. Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom; set your heart on a life of Understanding. That's right—if you make Insight your priority, and won't take no for an answer, Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold, like an adventurer on a treasure hunt, Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours; you'll have come upon the Knowledge of God.

Proverbs 14:29Slowness to anger makes for deep understanding; a quick-tempered person stockpiles stupidity.

Proverbs 14:33Lady Wisdom is at home in an understanding heart— fools never even get to say hello.

Proverbs 17:27The one who knows much says little; an understanding person remains calm.

Proverbs 24:3[ 20 ] It takes wisdom to build a house, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; It takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies.Proverbs 24:2-4 (in Context) Proverbs 24 (Whole Chapter)
Proverbs 25:3Like the horizons for breadth and the ocean for depth, the understanding of a good leader is broad and deep.

Matthew 13:11He replied, "You've been given insight into God's kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it hasn't been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. That's why I tell stories: to create readiness, to nudge the people toward receptive insight. In their present state they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they're blue in the face and not get it. I don't want Isaiah's forecast repeated all over again: Your ears are open but you don't hear a thing. Your eyes are awake but you don't see a thing. The people are blockheads! They stick their fingers in their ears so they won't have to listen; They screw their eyes shut so they won't have to look, so they won't have to deal with me face-to-face and let me heal them

Colossians 1:9Be assured that from the first day we heard of you, we haven't stopped praying for you, asking God to give you wise minds and spirits attuned to his will, and so acquire a thorough understanding of the ways in which God works. We pray that you'll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you'll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us.

2 Peter 1:5So don't lose a minute in building on what you've been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus. Without these qualities you can't see what's right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books.

Dear Heavenly Father ,
I come to you tonight to thank you for all of the amazing things that you've brought not into my life but into those around me , I pray that this blog page may reach just one person who is having a hard time with there faith or there understanding of why things are happening to them the way that they are and that it will help to bring them some sort of peace and understanding that they can take hold of , I thank you for showing me the amazing words and verses to help me my self grow more in understanding you and your works ways and you will , So many people Lord I have in my heart that I'm bringing to you in my prayers and I ask that you be there and guide them and watch over them as well as the ones that I haven't mentioned that maybe are struggling and don't know how to come to you Lord , Hear the thoughts and prayers in my heart Lord , Thank you for all of your many and wonderful blessings !
In Your Name I Pray ,
Amen !

Hes Had Me From Hello ... Happy Annivesary Baby

the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc.
the state, condition, or relationship of being married; wedlock: a happy marriage.


a relationship in which two people have pledged themselves to each other in the manner of a husband and wife, without legal sanction:

One word was really and truly how our story began , I think sometimes that this has been a dream and one day ill wake up from it, but with each passing day i come to realize more and more that its not a dream , That on that beautiful Saturday in June of 2001 I did marry my best friend , my soul mate , prince charming , you name it , Its hard to believe that we've been married for 8 years today but we have and tho I would have to say that these have been the best years of my life they haven't always been the easiest tho , But with the good and the bad its been a wonderful journey ,

This is the first year tho we've ever had to spend our anniversary apart :( and I do miss him like crazy

So even tho we cant be together today on our anniversary I just wanted to write a little blog up and share with everybody why I love this man so much and just what he means to me

Jason and I have always been so close but over the last year with everything that's gone on our relationship has grown so much and gotten so much stronger . And I accredit that to God , Jason and I both read the book Fireproof last year and it helped to start a wildfire of change in our relationship and our marriage and its been so wonderful !

1 Corinthians 13 - 4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Is that verse just not a awesome one ? , Because in a marriage Love has to be patient and you have to be kind to each other I honestly believe that its not just about it being Just a man and woman that there has to be that third presence in a marriage the presence of God has got to be there to make it work , Now it hasn't always been the strongest in our marriage and like anybody we've stumbled along the way and down the path , But in the last year , Ive learned so much about Jason and my Self and just how strong we really are , doing the bible study that I've been doing this year its helped to open my eyes up alot also ,

Proverbs 3-5-12 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own.Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track.Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction.It's the child he loves that God corrects; a father's delight is behind all this.

Ive learned that there are so many message in the word of God that can help in making a love story truly unbelievable , not to mention the guidance and wisdom that can be gotten and gained from just studying the word ,We are all given the chance to make our own destiny's and how we choose to do them is all on us ,But in becoming the best person that we can be you have to be open minded to changes , I thank you Jason for putting up with me over the years , I know that it hasn't been easy but you've always loved me and tho I know that our love has grown so much over the years as has your patience and understanding towards me , We've come so far Jason from the 2 people that meet back in 1999 and that moved in with each other on that spark of love that we hoped never died , Well baby it for sure hasn't died its become a wildfire of emotions , love ,trust , happiness , understand and so much more that cant even begin to be put into words and I fall in love more and more with you each and every day !

One word, that's all you said Something in your voice called me, turned my head Your smile, just captured me You were in my future as far as I could see And I dont know how it happens, but it happens still You asked me if I love you, if I always will Well you had me from hello I felt love start to grow The moment I looked into your eyes you won me It was over from the start you completely stole my heart And now you won't let go I never even had a chance you know You had me from hello Inside I built a wall So high around my heart, I thought I'd never fall One touch, you brought it down The bricks of my defenses scattered on the ground And I swore to me I wasn't going to love again The last time was the last time I'd let someone in But you had me from hello I felt love start to grow The moment I looked into your eyes you won me It was over from the start you completely stole my heart And now you wont let go I never even had a chance you know You had me from hello That's all you said Something in your voice calls me, turns my head You had me from hello You had me from hello Girl, I've loved you from hello

That has been the one song that's always said alot about us , You had me from Hello Jason theres no doubt about that , We came together and over come the many things and people saying that we would never make it , But we have baby and I am so grateful for you and love you so very very much ! You know theres probley 100 songs or better that I have heard that make me think of you but this one is our song !

Marriage Joins Two People in the Circle of its Love
Edmund O'Neill
Marriage is a commitment to life,the best that two people can find and bring out in each other.It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other relationship can equal.It is a physical and an emotional joining that is promised for a lifetime.Within the circle of its love,marriage encompasses all of life's most important relationships.A wife and a husband are each other's best friend,confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic.And there may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing,and the love of the other may resemble the tender caring of a parent or child.Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life.Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher,commitment is stronger, even anger is felt more strongly,and passes away more quickly.Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life,new experiences, new ways of expressing a love that is deeper than life.
When two people pledge their love and care for each other in marriage,they create a spirit unique unto themselves which binds them closer than any spoken or written words.Marriage is a promise, a potential made in the hearts of two people who love each other and takes a lifetime to fulfill.

We sure did go through alot to get that piece of paper but with out a shadow of doubt it was worth ever battle and struggle that we went through it made us so much closer and look at where we are now , I love you Jason with all of my heart and soul, and I praise God everyday that he brought some one into my life that has made me hole some one with the understanding and patience to love me through my best but to be there and shine that light of hope and strength through my worst times also being there and reminding me not to lose my faith and keep my chin up that God will guide us and help us through it all , I dont tell you enough just how much I love you , And i look forward to many many more years of love and happiness and continued growth between us ! Happy Anniversary Baby See Ya Soon and I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL !

Ecclesiastes 4:12 (New International Version)
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.

Creator Wk 20 scripture challange

I thank you for stopping by and checking out my scripture page the word for the week is Creator and as always i enjoyed studying this word, The first Colossians verse is pretty strong and is a reminder to me that when we dedicate our lives to God its just like trading in all of our griefs and sorrows for a new and better self but we are able to do that because God him self the creator of all made us that way , And he forgives us for our sins And how amazing is it to know that Our Awesome God the creator of all gives us that chance to come to him and he forgives us for all of our sins and creates a new and better us ! Praise God for all of the wonderful things he did create !
Colossians 3:9 Don't lie to one another. You're done with that old life. It's like a filthy set of ill-fitting clothes you've stripped off and put in the fire. Now you're dressed in a new wardrobe. Every item of your new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with his label on it. All the old fashions are now obsolete. Words like Jewish and non-Jewish, religious and irreligious, insider and outsider, uncivilized and uncouth, slave and free, mean nothing. From now on everyone is defined by Christ, everyone is included in Christ.

Isaiah 40:28 Have you never heard?Have you never understood?The Lord is the everlasting God,the Creator of all the earth.He never grows weak or weary.No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Genesis 1;1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth
2 songs this week spoke to my heart in doing this study The 1st is My Redeemer Lives By Nicole C Mullins and the 2ND is God you Regin by Lincon Brewster check these out if you haven't heard them they are great songs !

Am still around :) ... Things have been crazy and theres been lessons to learn

Proverbs 19:8To acquire wisdom is to love oneself;people who cherish understanding will prosper.

I am still around honest and I have been very busy with everything going on , Ive been doing my bible study and do have the page for desire to put up , I gotta find my camera tho to take some pics of them is one reason it isn't up as of yet , I have decided that due to some things and other feelings that I will be partaking on the bible scripture challenge my self and I will post it on the days that I get it done , I really enjoy reading the word of God and building my relationship with him and getting to know him better its been amazing for me , But at the same time Ive spent so much time trying to figure out certain things and actions by other people that i haven't fully gotten everything out of it that I can , therefor not to offend or hurt any ones feelings or get mine hurt any more Ive decided to do this on my own .

I have also been bitten again by the scrapping bug and in the last week I've gotten about 10 pages done so there again as soon as I find the ol camera ill get pics posted of my latest work ..

Job 36:5“God is mighty, but he does not despise anyone!He is mighty in both power and understanding.

Now for the crazy part , my dads been outta work for about a month now and things have been pretty hard on everybody , I know that this situation is going on in so many homes across the US with the economy in the state that it is , And while you can say your praying for people and u know how they feel , honestly until some one you love is put in that situation its hard to really imagine.. Having to face all this has opened up my eyes greatly , and My heart has come to hurt for people that are in this situation , The not knowing the trying of faith and what not is hard to deal with , But I've also learned that Prayer and the power of it is something truly amazing and I am grateful to have that and to have realized the importance of it . So to those in this situation or facing this with a loved one , It will get better and even tho it may not seem as tho it will , Have faith in God and Pray . it will help and he will provide !

I hope your all enjoying your summer mines going pretty good so far Ive managed to do a lil cleaning up and gone through my clothes in my dresser and closet :) that's a good thing .. Look for my pages to be posted sooon , because I will find my camera in the next few days !

Have a Blessed day .

1 Chronicles 22:12And may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, that you may obey the Law of the Lord your God as you rule over Israel.

Psalm 147:5How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!His understanding is beyond comprehension!

Proverbs 3:5Trust in the Lord with all your heart;do not depend on your own understanding.

Desire wk 19 scripture study

Desire - To Long Or Hope For , That's the definition of the word according to Webster , To desire to know and learn more about God and to feel him in my life has been nothing short of amazing Ive learned so much about my self and its just continues to be a growing desire to know and learn all that I can to be a better person and a child of God

Psalm 10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

Psalm 27:4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Proverbs 19:22 The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.

Colossi ans 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; - I didn't have room to stick this one on my page but I think that its soo important and it rings words that are so very true !

Thanks for stopping by I know the page is a week late but I just found the old camera ! Have a Blessed and Wonderful Day
