It's humbling to think we are God's masterpiece considering oceans, mountains, stars, and galaxies. But think of it - out of this great big universe, we are the only things He's created capable of loving Him in return. And that is supremely precious to the Lord our God. <3 by gabrielle

I think often we take these statements to mean only about ourselves, but in this case we should realize that we too, often have a lot to say about those we hardly. We assume, stereotype, and gossip to make ourselves feel better. Let's stop that and just spread love and kindness. Besides, we know how awful it feels to be talked about. by proteamundi

How 14 Bank Accounts Saved Our Budget. Yes! This! We started this 3 months ago, when my sister told me about it and even in such a short time it made such a difference. It's easy to keep track of even a small budget and you don;t have to worry about keeping cash and carrying cash everywhere. It's like a cash budget alternative. by lea

We referred to the plans at Anna-White.com. It is made up of regular 2 x 4′s, some 2 x 2′s, and rough pine planks all purchased at our local Rona store. We had to modify the construction a bit because we did not have a Kreg Jig, but I think ours turned out pretty darn close. by Ana Oliva

I love making wreaths, it's fun experimenting with different greenery and flowers! We thought it would be fun to add eucalyptus to this one, it not only smells amazing but it dries really nice too! We went to Whole Foods and picked out a few different florals, they always have a great selection. It's festive without having any traditional holiday garland which is a bit fun, it's just simple and pretty.

Hi, God, it's me. Some of us are getting older and things are getting bad here. Energy, healthcare and food costs are too high, and the future doesn't look good. I know some have taken you out of our schools, government, veteran's funerals, and even Christmas. But God I'm asking you to come back and re-bless America . We really need you! As you know, there are more of us who want you than those who don't! Thank You, God, I Love you. by aftr

It’s that secret fear that lurks in our hearts–that many of us carry around with us. That fear that even though we have may have smiles on our faces in church, deep inside, we wonder if God really does want to bless us. This is an raw, real post about the questions we all have in our hearts from time to time. Is God really for us? by lindsay0

The law of God, when it says to us, "Thou shalt not," only sets up a danger signal to tell us where it is injurious to go. And when the law says, "Thou shalt," it does but lift up a kindly hand to point out to us the best and safest path. There is nothing in the law of God that will rob you of happiness; it only denies you that which would cost you sorrow! We know that it is so, and therefore we stand here and bow our head and mourn that we should have been so foolish to transgress... by randi

Obedience even when we don't understand. This is something I had to learn and struggle with today. God has a plan and even when it's not what I think it's going to be I know it's the best plan. TRUST GOD AND BE THANKFUL FOR HIS PLAN. by terra

Everything in the Mabry home isn't always rainbows and unicorns. In fact, until recently it has been quite the opposite as we battled with trauma, permanent disability, family death, job loss, PTSD, and addiction. Through the rough times, John and I both made a personal choice that we weren't going to let the odds against us separate the marriage that God brought together. It hasn't been easy but we hope that our 'test' can serve as a 'testimony' through Mabry Living. by jolene

I can't believe someone sat down and figured this out because it is so simple yet so complex that next to no one would have noticed. Thank you whoever you are."

I'm reading a book by Joyce Meyer called a "Battlefield of the Mind" and she mentions this verse. Your thoughts run your actions, so it's easy to not control those thoughts. But it's always left me feeling hopeless. If we stop and think of how negative our mind can be, and how it affects your whole day, it's crazy! Give God that control and he will give you peace. by lola
