I stink when I get wet. That's why I don't like to bathe...but playing in the rain is different...and a better smellin' stink...I think.

April 1, 2010
To Speak Or Not To Speak
[Jesus] kept silent and answered nothing. —Mark 14:61

Sometimes silence is the best response to a false charge. At other times we must speak up.

When false witnesses accused Jesus as He stood before the Sanhedrin, He “kept silent” (Mark 14:53-61). Defending Himself would have been useless. Furthermore, He was fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 53:7. But earlier in His ministry, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees, challenging them to prove that He sinned (John 8:13-59).

A pastor resigned from his church because a few members made untrue statements about him. He thought it unchristian to defend himself, and in some instances it is. But in this case, the troublemakers needed to be confronted and their false charges refuted. He should have urged them to repent or face church discipline.

Saying nothing may allow wrongdoers to go unchallenged in their evil ways. But if God’s Spirit leads us to remain silent, or if we want merely to try to salvage our wounded pride, then we should hold our tongue.

Are you being falsely accused? If you discern that it’s futile to argue, or if your pride has been hurt, ask God for grace to say nothing. But if you feel concern for the wrongdoers and want to see justice done, speak up!

Lord, give us wisdom to discern
When what is false must be revealed
Or if we need Your grace and strength
To close our lips and keep them sealed. —D. De Haan

Silence can be valuable; don’t break it unless you can improve on it.

Bible in One Year: Judges 13-15; Luke 6:27-49

I love the ‘rainy day graphic’ and the song for April, kinda bluesy! We have sunshine today and good temps but the rain will come soon! Lots of work outside that will have to wait for me.

Good Morning!! Good April !! New Month!!
Polly is going to try and jump back in today.
I’ve been AWOL for a week, trying to catch up here at home and of course standing watch over my fun Eagle’s Nest!

Pray for travel safety today. Hubby and grandson are heading from Los Angeles to Arizona today for the rest of the week. His only living brother is in Tucson and very ill. He feels the need to be with him. Polly and daughter are staying home and “ man-ing or woman-ing” the fort!!

Loves to you all.
If I have time I will read back over the past week. So much to do, so little time to do it!

Polly

I did not make your cake all by myself:
I had assistance in the kitchen.


But there are NO calories,
So, DIG IN, Birthday Girl!

With great regret, I must tell you all this news,
but today will be my last day I will be posting on FR.

I have put much thought and contemplation into my decision,
and wanted you all to know that I have enjoyed
getting to know each one of you.

Adorable graphic, tiapam, and those kitties singing Happy Birthday is precious!

Those dogs are colored exactly like my first sheltie. The big dog looks like a full collie. Mine was just like it, only smaller! The puppy is about the same size mine was when I got her. They are wonderful dogs! And such lovers!

Your text is very good! Where do you do the texting...on your computer program or another program?? Its great.
