Sunday Blessing

When I read this, it really jolted me.  I thought I would share this devo with everyone today.  The following is taken from "My Utmost for His Highest"  by:  Oswald Chambers.


Reading for Saturday 15th September 2012

WHAT TO RENOUNCE

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty.
Have you "renounced the hidden things of dishonesty" - the things that your sense of honour will not allow to come to the light? You can easily hide them. Is there a thought in your heart about anyone which you would not like to be dragged into the light? Renounce it as soon as it springs up; renounce the whole thing until there is no hidden thing of dishonesty or craftiness about you. Envy, jealousy, strife - these things arise not necessarily from the disposition of sin, but from the make-up of your body which was used for this kind of thing in days gone by (see Romans 6:19 and 1 Peter 4:1-2). Maintain a continual watchfulness so that nothing of which you would be ashamed arises in your life.

"Not walking in craftiness," that is, resorting to what will carry your point. This is a great snare. You know that God will only let you work in one way, then be careful never to catch people the other way; God's blight will be upon you if you do. Others are doing things which to you would be walking in craftiness, but it may not be so with them: God has given you another standpoint. Never blunt the sense of your Utmost for His Highest. For you to do a certain thing would mean the incoming of craftiness for an end other than the highest, and the blunting of the motive God has given you. Many have gone back because they are afraid of looking at things from God's standpoint. The great crisis comes spiritually when a man has to emerge a bit farther on than the creed he has accepted.
2 Corinthians 4:2

Happy Birthday To Our Twins!

We recently celebrated our twin daughter's birthday.  The girls and I went to the city to shop for the day.  We had a fun day together.  This is the third year to go shopping for their birthday.  We have always had great theme parties for them but as they get older the ideas are slim.  Its hard to think of fun theme parties when you are teenagers, especially when you are totally opposite in personality.  Elli would have a tea party and Emma would want to ride horses.  We have promised them that next year we will have a special party, I just hope we agree on the theme.



We have also made two cakes for the last two years.
This year Elli wanted red velvet and Emma chocolate of course.
Next year one cake, one theme and a lot of FUN!

Happy Birthday to My Hubby!

Birthday morning opening presents.

He got a Dutch Oven!



We went fishing for the day.  The weather was warm and wonderful.





The girls and I decided to take a walk and not bother the fishermen.

Somehow our children have become Texas fans; could it be because their daddy in from Texas?

Ending the day with a cake Elli made for her daddy.
