I absolutely still love this Jewish Bible I bought. In my Scripture writing for today, I had to write from Ecclesiastes. It was verses 11-13, but of course, I looked up at the “Time to” Scriptures.

Matthew 6:33, “Seek the Kingdom of God, above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Well, I have not been writing. Shame on me. I totally feel inspired this morning and wanted to share. I have been processing all that has gone on in the last few weeks. Rejection has been a big one …

Psalm 59-:16-17 …

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 Are you currently riding on life’s merry-go-round? You know, where everything just seems to be spinning around you… you are constantly doing the same things over and over. Your joy really isn’t there. You are just going in circles. How about we get …

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a …
