Thankful Thursday

God my Friend is so good about reminding me who I am. 
Why I am here on the blog and what good I can do, knowledge I can offer.
He gave me this life time to gain the experience strength and hope that I now posses.

Recently plagiarism of the materials here without even a "thank You" caught me up into a attitude of resentment. I looked like this...
Why should I spend such great efforts in sharing my understanding when others are selling books on it and making money. Now mind you my hands are full and if I neglected my family and duties I could write such a script. For me however knowing my own personal limitation given the scope of my life I have not done so. But I did have the energy to be offended and that says some pretty sad things about a lack of character shown in on my part.

So in honor of Thankfulness I will offer up again freely those things gained with such great efforts over so many many years

That is really too bad. I can see how you feel as you do. Another friend also mentioned something like this to me. It kinda makes me question my music I have on my website, though I have copyrights.

Cathy Copyrights do not seem to matter unless you have the time and money to get a lawer.
Well It is my heart issue that I am adressing.
If I hold my heart back when it is within me to give then I am in error.
Sharing knowledge and saving history was my goal. I can not let my attitudes get in the way of that.I suggest that if you really do not want to loose your music you look into copyright laws to find the best way to protect it. Perhaps even speaking to a lawyer.

Wow you have incredible self control, if I was in your position you'd better believe this would be a much angrier rant ;)

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
