Strife: Not Welcome Here


"For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work."   ... James 3:16

*****

That one little Bible verse explains why Tom and I are oh-so-careful to keep our arguments short. To get them over with, well, fast.

We refuse to let Strife hang-out with us at Hobbit Cottage lest that open our new pretty red door to every evil work which may or may not include bad times, accidents, financial lack, broken things, anger, danger, theft, broken relationships, confusion, unforgiveness and --- 

Just so you know. Just something to consider.


*******

On a lighter Christmassy note, this photo will make you smile. Maybe even laugh. I guarantee it.


*******

Now it's back to Alias. This is Tom's last day off for awhile and it's been an Alias kind of day around here. 

Over and out.

"Don't let the sun go down on your anger."   ... Ephesians 4:26

Do you listen to Joyce Meyer? I listen to her every morning and she has been talking about this subject. It is so good! Ken and I use to argue all the time. Now we hardly ever do and peace is such a GOOD thing. I can see why God tells us to pursue peace.

Elizabeth--thank-you! Glad you liked the photo... wasn't it cute? :)

Lori--aha! You caught me...smile... I've listened to Joyce for 18 years (she's my hero) and her current messages inspired this short one of mine. :)

Thanks, Ladies!... Blessings, Debra
