Do You Want To Hear From The Lord?

photo by jackietrain, morguefile.com

Do you want to hear from the Lord?  Does He speak to us?  I believe he does.  We must be listening to hear from him.  Have you made yourself sit down and listen?

How can you hear from him? 

1.  Be still and quiet.  You don't have to take long to do this.  Just make yourself sit down and let other things stop being top priority.

2.  Ask God to speak to you.  Talk to him and let him know you are listening.

3.  Have a notebook and pen ready.  When he impresses you with something, write it down.  You may feel unsure but just go ahead and write it.  What is the nature of God?  Write these things down until you feel impressed to write something that he is telling you.

4.  Picture Jesus sitting there with you.  What is he saying to you?  Let the thoughts or words you hear sink into your ears and write those down. 

5.  If you hear things like, you are not good or hateful things, it is not of God.  God loves you and is not angry with you.

Try this and let me know how it goes.

How Important Are Our Words

Listen to your words.  What are they saying about you?  What inflections are you using?  What expressions come out of your mouth?

Our words are powerful.  We may not realize it but they are.  Especially with those that are around us the most.  There is a tendency to let go and say things without thinking about them.  We feel they know us and it is ok. 

Make a commitment to think before you speak today.  Notice how your words affect others.  You may be surprised at the power you have.

Have a great day!

Hello my friends,

I have an auction on Listia for 5 different farmers bulletinsThey are on raising chickens, Bermuda grass, corn, and tobacco pests.  These are vintage pamphlets. 

Even though the information is old it is still good today.  At least most of it.

If you love growing things like my husband and myself, these might be something you would be interested in.

Right now, my husband is working on growing herbs, peppers, and annuals.  I love to see things grow.  We had a pumpkin patch and had hoped to sell the pumpkins but the rains caused fungus to grow and kill the pumpkins.  Oh well.  That is one of the hazards of growing things to sell. 

I hope you all have a nice day and a great weekend.

Until next time!

I Finally Went To Aldi's

I finally went to Aldi's!  I love it.  The one I went to was clean and everyone was nice.

Their produce was very reasonable.  I was able to buy several packs of chicken at a good price.  Also, I got some baking supplies.  I was hoping to get a few more to stock up but my sweet hubbie was waiting outside for me to get through.

They had a nice variety of meats and fresh vegetables.  The store brand canned vegetables I bought were .49 each.  That is a good buy.  I hope to cook up some really good vegetable soup this week.  I will let you know how that turns out.

If you have been on the fence about Aldi's I encourage you to go check it out.  It is not a big store.  I kind of like that because it is hard for me to walk all around the bigger stores.

Well, I hope this helps you decide to try Aldi's and see if you like it.

Have any of you gone this week to shop at Aldi's?  Let me know what you think about your trip there.

You Can Control Your Feelings

Do you feel as though you can't control your feelings? Are your thoughts racing back and forth?  You feel like you just can't cope with all that is going on?  I know how that is.  I go through this a lot. 

When I make myself stop and think for a minute I realize that I am in charge of my thoughts.  I can change the subject.  Or make myself sit and relax for a minute.  Then I take a deep breath and get ahold of myself.  It is not always easy.  I have not always been able to do that.  There are still times when I forget.

Practice this technique when you feel the stress coming on and you feel that you don't know where to turn.  Just stop.  Stop.  Then take a deep breath and talk in a kind positive voice to yourself.  Then go ahead and do what you need to do.  You may not get it right every time but keep doing this.  You will see that it helps and that you are stronger than you think.

Have a great day!

Hello Everyone,
Have you been trying to loose weight and feel better?  Eating fruit can help.  I have a hard time eating fruit.  I don't know why.  I have just gotten out of the habit of eating it.  But on days that I do remember to eat it I feel better about myself.  I know that I have done something good for my body.
Eating fruit gives you fiber.  Your body needs that fiber to help clean out your system.  It helps to move all that stuff out of your digestive system.  That will help you feel better.  You won't have that stuffed feeling or that blah feeling--at least not as bad.

Eating fruit will give your body vitamins and minerals.  Eating a variety of fruit will give you the needed vitamins C, B, A and all the others.  Plus trace minerals to keep your body healthy.  Bananas have lots of potassium, citrus has vitamin C.  Berries are lower in calories than other fruits.  You can load up on these to control your appetite.

A fruit of the Spirit is love.  Treat your body with love.  Speak loving words to yourself.  If you make a bad choice don't beat yourself up.  Treat yourself as the worthy person you are.  God loves you.

Try The New epantry: Introducing Baby Bundle

photo by mconners-morguefile.com

Have you heard of the amazon epantry giveaway?  You can read all the details here.  Amazon has an epantry program that is really easy to use and can save you money.  Especially this new baby bundle deal they have going.

I just joined amazon prime and I really like it.  I have already saved quite a bit of money and this is my second month. Epantry is a way to buy grocery items for your home without having to buy big bundles of one item.  You can buy one can or one box of an item and put it in your epantry box.  You keep choosing items to put into your box and then amazon lets you know when the box is full.  There is a $5.99 shipping fee no matter what is in the box.  (I am pretty sure it is $5.99.  I will have to double check and let you know).

Moneysavingmom is running a giveaway on her blog for the baby bundle deal.  Check it out here.

Have a great day!
