“Please God, make my words today sweet and tender, for tomorrow I may have to eat them.” Author Unknown
I’m afraid this post is going to make me hungry, not because I’m going to have to eat my words just because I think of treats when I think sweet.
Today is going to be a hodge podge because I think there are numerous ways to include something from all the things I have lots of passion about. You know what those things are right? Family, Food, Crafts, Faith and Motherhood….got your attention?
Have you wondered about making your own fortune cookies, I have and I found the directions. Now if I could just find the time and energy to get busy.
Not only are the cookies sweet at this blog, but so is the author. When was the last time that you said, “Today is about me and what I want to do, not what I should be doing.” ? I also really really wish she was my sister.
I thought today would be good a day to have a bible verse to study. I came up with.
Proverbs 20:17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
Wow! Isn’t that something to ponder. I hate to admit that I actually thought of one of my family members when I saw this verse. My entire adult life I’ve wondered why folks don’t just “call a spade a spade”. You don’t have to be ugly or hurtful, but just be honest. Many times I keep my opinion to myself because I know what I have to say is either going to be hurtful or the person hearing what I have to say isn’t going to accept it with the intention I am trying to give it. I also have the occasion where I just say, “I’m going to choose not to get involved in this discussion because it’s not going to have a good outcome.” Huge growth for me, I use to just say it and not really care whose feelings I hurt.
I strive for open communication at my house because I didn’t get a lot of that growing up. At our house if you didn’t talk about it, it went away. If your feelings were hurt, get over it. If your opinion differed from the parental unit, don’t share it. I don’t want a house like that, but sometimes I honestly see why people go that route, my kids sure have a lot of opinions.
If you want to be humbled and made to appreciate the blessings God has given you regardless of what is happening in your life at the moment get to know Adrienne.
This could get out of control because I’ve found literally hundreds of craft ideas for this month. (Imagine that!) Who doesn’t love Shrinky Dinks? It’s easy to find hundreds ok maybe thousands of good ideas when you luck out and find a blog that has daily, yes I said daily DIY Projects (let me warn you, go potty and get your beverage of choice before you go to this site because you will be there a long time.). How is this for sweet?
I like Busy Little Craftee Bee blog, and thought this was perfect when I saw she had titled it Sweet Kendall. I always wanted to name one of my girls Kendall, I think it’s a strong but still sweet name for a girl.
Hope you enjoyed my post on “Sweet” now go do something sweet.
