Goodbye Mr. Chips

I watched “Goodbye Mr. Chips” 1939 again. In February, prior to the Academy Awards, TCM shows the ‘best’ of the movies. So many of them are my favorites. I don’t appreciate leaving them behind. I wish I could get my family to enjoy them over and over like I do…
          Traditions of another time,
          Golden language sublime,
          Mannerisms to mime,
          Scenes of an earlier clime.

In the Midst of a Storm

I was sure a tornado was about to enter my living room last night. Strong wind gales were pitching things at the outside walls and it felt like the roof was going to lift off. My dog was hiding behind the fireplace in the corner. I tried coaxing her out to me so we could get into the hallway, but she wouldn’t budge. All I could do was pray and say, “Well, here we come Lord…make safe our way!” Electric outage 6 hrs. Southern New Jersey 2/24/16


Walmart People

Yes, those pictures of Walmart people can be discouraging, but who’s to say we look/dress the picture of perfection? Does making fun of someone make us look better? We will never please everybody.

Proverbs 21:2…Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
21:4…An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.
21:23…Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
26:12…Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

Why take ye thought for raiment?
Matthew 6:25, 31…Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the body more than raiment? Therefore take no thought, saying, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

Proverbs 30:8-9…Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.

Just shop where you save the most, and be thankful you can.
