Video blog post: I am convinced "works meet of repentance" are important..................

video

I am convinced "works meet of repentance" are important. Today at church one the pastors read...............Luke 3:8 "Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham." "fruits" that entails loving each other, but also I think it also entails some good works to..........cause if you love people your going to do some good out there!!!!!! That's what I recogn!!!!!!! Next few verses down talk about doing good works.................which is a way to bear "fruits worthy of repentance"...................
Luke 3:9-11 "And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then? He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise."
   I have came to believe that it is very important to "maintain" good works (not like copious amounts right but some) works "meet of repentance"
Revelation 2:5 "Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent."
Titus 3:14 "And let our's also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful."
This week I gave the church coffee stirrers 1000 of them : ) (they didn't have the knives out today, maybe they's using them at silverton I HOPE SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I will be's maintaining good works, so that my lampstand has light!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I once was in complete darkness and I didn't enjoy that at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I prefer to be in christ jesus like a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I prefer to wear modest attire these days - we are all judged by how we look, this is how it is in society!!!!!...............

2 my fave skirts............good length.
I prefer to wear modest attire these days - we are all judged by how we look, this is how it is in society!!!!!! (I snooped on my old church cause it was real easy while I was on facebook yesterday - click) AND THEIR YOUTH IN A PICTURE WERE ALL WEARING jeans and short skirts!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can give the link to it without getting in no copyright trouble............click.................https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.625990717456701.1073741837.525585044163936&type=1
  Bottom pic on link above they all are wearing short skirts and jeans - it was not like that at all when I went to that church. The short skirts don't really make the whole "we are walking the narrow way right now" thing uh appear to be the case! With those short skirts those girls could be heading to the saturday night disco place about to - move and groove. I have no idea what the smith's friends believe these days.....................but what I do see because I am a touch snoopy.............is how they are dressing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
  If you are going to follow jesus everyday and put the work into that, in my opinion you want to get credit for that, be sure you are wearing modest attire..............................
   Like yesterday........................(every now and then I'll think I want to watch tv right) and I thought I wanted to watch tv.............I'd describe this phenomina like craving a snack in the refrigerator.............or better yet.............................craving a candy bar in the snack drawer YOU CLEAN KNOW THAT CANDY BAR IS REAL BAD FOR YOU! But I couldn't do it............besides I watched news..........................I wrestlllllllllllllllllled myself yesterday, turn on the tv, then I'd be like 4-5 minutes later NAW NAW turn it off. Then I'd turn it on again 4-5 minutes later NAW NAW turn it off. 
  People judge each other on how we look, that's just how it is on this earth right. As I told 3 pastors yesterday HECK YA I wear the apostolic christian church of america prayer doily everyday.........................but it's the entire image.............the long skirts (when I go to the gym I shoot for wearing a skirt that hits just below the knee - that's as far as a skirt can go and I still be able to work out on all the equipment) You don't want to put in the kind of effort to follow jesus I do.................................AND THEN BE THOUGHT OF BY THE WORLD AT LARGE AS A FRIEND OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
   I am completely unable to watch tv anymore THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! because I've been telling god in prayer lately that I am completely done with idolatry, I am smart enough to know that celebrities are modern day idols. And I am of jewish heritage..........well many a time in the old testiment the jews (my ancestors) got all interested in the idolatry in the lands they were in...............it was always really bad for them in the end. Ezekiel 6:9 "And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations." IDOLATRY ===== NOT A GOOD PLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Guys don't whistle at me everytime I step out of my door like they used to..............that's fine!!!!!!!!! I am happily married!!!!!!!!! 
  I know though those are young kids in that pic in the link above and those young kids they love the slinky short buisiness, I know that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I hope they know the image that they are actually "putting across" when they are dressing like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope you alls week is going good.

Real wealth has nothing to do with money..................

Real wealth has nothing to do with money.............what you going to do with a pile of money if you have not any friends or family around you??????????? Your piles of money would be ok not useless you could buy a pool, you could buy a basketball court...........maybe buy a island make some friends with some dolphins.
1 Corinthians 13:3 "And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing." If you love people you give, I find, but I am at this moment taking good note that 1 Corinthians 13:3 is talking about someone that gave "all my goods to feed the poor" THAT GAVE A LOT! I believe I have figured out how to ensure that we love each other............John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." we pry will all give stuffs to people to, when we have attained John 15:13!

  I recommend giving to people. 2 Corinthians 12:15 "And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved." I believe paul fully knew the importance of giving!!!!!!!!  I told 3 pastors yesterday.....................Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." people think well if I give I'm going to loose all this "stuff" right......................but if you give the truth is if you give right of your time, of your money of your earthly goods.............
That's stuffs is going to come back to you sooner or later!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not"
  Now you all can have a chuckle at me for a moment........................yesterday I noticed that there was a shortage of knives at church (we eat lunch at the portland apostolic christian church of america) well people need knives to spread mayonaise on their sandwiches, and mustard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At advanced liquidators look what I got for the portland church for one dollar.........................
The abundant life jesus came to give us I full out believe, that involves a life where we have some (lot of people in the world) but some right solid friendships, and I think maybe even not just 1 set of parents..............Mark 10:30 "But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life." (I took good note in Mark 10:30 where it says "But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time............." NOW IN THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT'S POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
   It's more then possible!!!!!!!!!!! I'm starting to expereince Mark 10:30. 
money the things you could buy with money IS STUPID WHY WHY LOVE ANY EARTH "GOODS"?????????? 1 John 2:15 "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."

Video blog post, Love is louder.......................

video
The video I watched on you tube recently that I found inspiring (love is louder, but even if it weren't louder it's better love is to have that for everyone!!!!!!!!!!)..............
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT466f5epNY&list=UU9TreTE-iXwfwQl72DzDurA
James chapter 3:10 "Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things out not so to be." 
 ------- church went well today, I liked that ron one the pastors said that he wished more then one person would repent a year (he means at the portland church) I like that : ) 
(what I painted today I really enjoy painting hydrangea's........on the top of the breadbox I decopauged - orgami paper of all things I've found to be really good for decopauge cause it's a thin paper)

video blog post concerning having zeal for good works...........................

video

Titus 2:14 "Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." I think that if you do 2-3 "good works" regularly and are really zealous for them - that's the idea. The bible says.............Galatians 4:18 "But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you."
  Going to church tonight and dropping these two baby gift baskets off - I also volunteer at the foodbank both these activities I enjoy...........my husband volunteers at the foodbank to, he has frequently help put together these baby gift baskets to........my husband tells me "we are a team" and we are! 
  Have a great week !

I'm getting better at this bearing good fruit stuffs : )..........................

I passed my personal trainer certification exam - I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!
(pic of my lats these days.........I'm "leaning down" right now a lot, going to have to work on my back more - biceps are 14 inches unflexed, 16 inches flexed : )
I'm getting better at this bearing good fruit stuffs : ) I've learned a few things over time.............I've learned, to not let the sun go down on your anger (CAUSE BEING MAD IS SO BAD FOR ONES FRUIT) go pray, go have a talk with that person (cause maybe you misunderstood what they said to you which in my experience is the case often.........100% of the time I'd say) ------------- make sure the sun does not go down with you still angry at the end of the day.Ephesians 4:26-27 "Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil."
  Thinking on good things helps my bearing good fruit along, thinking on the good I do see in people around me Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." (an active desicion I am making these days to not hone in on the faults and flaws I sometimes see in people in my life) Or if I do for a day for a moment - think on something bad, or as is recently the case bothered by something real bad right..........................next day got back into thinking on the good. 
   I don't recommend not watching the news  ----------- watch the news and then............go pray that's my advice. (which I need to do that myself cause there are some really bad "conflicts" out there)
   Another thing I've learned over time which ya I'm only 30 something, but somedays I feel 90. 
   Do alllllllllllllllllllll you can do to stay humble to be humble. (which links up to my last blog post be rooted and grounded in love.........Ephesians 3:17 "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,")
  ---------------- a few times in the past I've gotten into a real dangerous mindset of "woes me" it goes like this...............
woes me nobody hardly....................................................
and woes me nobody hardly...........................................................
When I am of that mindset I have discovered that is when there is a touch of pride somewhere in me...........when I am that covinced I am "worthy" to be served. Not that I'm saying you will be stuck serving serving serving and never reap that is the fantastical thing WE WILL REAP IF WE FAINT NOT.............Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
  The greatest in the kingdom of heaven someday will be the actual what was on this earth the least FOR REALS THE LEAST, and the servant of all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (I find this verse to be comforting which may sound really odd???????? Mark 9:35 "And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all." the idea that I don't have to have that stress that I once had to make myself into something big - it's enough to just serve I am 100% that on this earth  I am that one person on earth that would NOT even be able to make myself into something big at such a low status I find myself on on this earth WHICH IS ACTUALLY A MASSIVE BLESSING FOR ME)
  Jesus came not as a high and mighty king demanding everyone serve him........Philippians 2:7-8 "But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."
  The need is great out there..............there are a great deal of people that could use "a nice letter" or a "phone call"................and the "needs" I know exist in the people in my own life are greater then I even imagine I could even like "fulfill" ------------- I clean get overwhelmed by how large this earth is. 
 Deuteronomy 11:13 "And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,"

Started some seedlings yesterday - this is just the 1st batch of seeds, this year I'm making a real go of gardening cause I found out you can make "ollies" for your garden (take milk jugs fill them w/water freeze them then poke holes in them, then bury them in the ground around your plants, and screw the lid off add water in them every day or two or whatever) pretty sure I'm about to have a really fab garden this year : )
