Blogging 101

Blogging 101- That is what i am calling my venturing out into the blogging world, something that didn't even exist 10 years ago. It is not that I think people want to read what I have to say, it is that I need to remember what I had to say. In the meantime, if it blesses someone else, so be it.

I spoke at chapel today on the verse Proverb 29:11. "A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control." I explained full vent as Niagra Falls. Imagine that in the shower. It is way too strong and out of control to allow you to take a nice relaxing shower. It would more than knock you over. Keeping oneself under control is like using an expensive shower head that allows me to control the speed, temperature and style of the water. One knocks you over, the other refreshes. i am guilty of sometimes being a fool. But my prayer is to be a wise man. (O.K. woman). I spoke on this, was convicted of this, prayed about this and then went out to do carpool and cars stopped where they shouldn't and I feel the waterfall start to flow. How hard can it be? Sometimes the word pictures we are careful to use for elementary kids are really for us.

Maureen, I am delighted that you are teaching Proverbs in chapel. The fact that you are sharing the wisdom of Solomon with young people shows that you are already a woman with wisdom. It is growing in you. May God bless you richly -- and cause His Word to bring forth fruit in listeners of every age. Love you! TOPL...the other Proverbs lady
