Doing Good

Who can find a virtuous wife For her worth is far above rubies.  The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain.  She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.
                                                                                                                                 -Proverbs 31:10-12

Whether you are single or married, or even man or woman for that matter, it is worthy goal to have these words said of us.  Sometimes in the middle of busy weekends or chaotic work weeks, its easy for me to slip into a victim mode, throwing a pity party for things that didn't go right or extra work I have to do.  Its so easy to lose sight of my life through God's eyes and my purpose in other people's lives.  May we all be a person who longs to do right more than be right, and to give life more than get even.



October is my favorite month and we only have 2 weeks left of it!  Take note of the yards decorated today and sometime this week, take advantage of a pumpkin flavored something!  October 2010 will never be here again! :)

"Do not grow weary in doing good..."love, not only in word, but in deed and truth..."to him who knows to do good and doesn't do it, to him it is sin..."

"For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it." (1 Peter 3:10-11)

Quoted from Psalm:
"Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Who is the man who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. (Psalm 34:11-14)
