On Being a good neighbor

Tonight I was chilling and reading the list of free stuff on craigs list. An add was on there that said to come to help stuff all sorts of stuff with the address on the leader line. It was including images of belongings with the house photo as well.
I called 911 for the add had come up only 15 minutes prior.
An officer called me back. Thanked me the family was being set up. A vendetta or prank. Within moments up an add like that can generate 50 responders on the way to the house in a frenzy.

The police were able to intervene and the home owner was alerted.

It felt so good when the officer told me thanks, and that my call had saved a family many issues. The add acted as if everything was for the taking. Imagine looking out your window to see vehicles coming and the folks getting out to strip your property and make the way inside. NEVER take anything without owner approval! ever.
Folks of common sense will know this but as we all know that is not to common now a days.

Great advice! And wow, I didn'tknow that such things happen nowadays. Ack. Have been getting caught up here at your blog--how great that you walked a mile! It's been awhile since I did that, but need to get back to it. Prayers are coming for your children.... oh, and I loved the blanket fort! I remember those days well, both my own and my daughter's, too. Blessings, Debra (As always, thanks for your comments at my blog!)

Praying for your children, and you are a wonderful neighbor.

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"
