2nd Scripture

It's the 15th of the month....time to pick a new scripture to memorize!! I did really well and memorized the 1st one in 3 days.

My 2nd scripture is Proverbs 18:8 "The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man's inmost parts".

Life Application Bible explains- It is as hard to refuse to listen to gossip as it is to turn down a delicious dessert. Taking just one morsel of either one creates a taste for more. You can resist rumors the same way a determined dieter resists candy--never even open the box. If you don't nibble on the first bite of gossip, you can't take the second and the third.

This is a hard verse to live by, working with a bunch of women who love to gossip. Sometimes you just have to walk away to help avoid getting involved in the conversation.

Good choice!

hey betty,
great verse and i bet working where you do, its hard not to hear gossip!

i read your comment on my blog. you know, these kids being adults is just a little more than my mind can wrap around. i can still see us all sitting at warren dupree for teachers meeting. whatever that is called. you all sat at the table with us and there was our sweet little babies, teeth gone and loving their parents soooooo much and needing us soooooo much.

you know what though, at least we both have great adult relationships with our kids. isn't that such a blessing because so many people do not. so there you go, our new focus, our adult relations with them and every once in a while can we just ask them to crawl up in our lap and let us love on them!

i love you friend and happy crocheting to you!

I just 'came upon' your blog, and wanted to comment how beautiful it is... just love the clouds and water. I'm on the prairies where the temps are freezing right now, so I can dream, can't I?
