Encouragement the bread of life shared.

Some folks KNEED a bite of encouragement now and then. Times often are those of silent introspection. Ya know a hunger can come on a soul that lasts well into emaciation of sorts. Breaking bread with one another is a good thing. It is more than what goes into a body. It is what comes out. Sometimes hurling out all that is stored up to belly hurt is a good thing. Spiritually and physically as well. Gets all that poison out of a system. Sure can make a mess though. Funny how some folk might just love enough to wipe it up or hold your hair.

This is speaking of those starved souls that feast on a simple word, a morsel even if it is dropped on the ground at the far end of the table. Now being asked up front to sit beside the head of it all, well that's an honor that almost makes a soul bow head to not see eyes of resentment or jealousy. Keeping eye low when sitting at the head of the table is a false stance. Were it not for the invite...well invited guest have right to hold head high. To eye to eye the guest sitting round about.

If your ever sitting there at the head of the table not really feeling if ya belong. Stick close to the host for he thought of you for a reason. Be close to your friends closer yet to your enemy.

The wish is always however the host be friend, fond loving and willing to fill your plate with encouragement. Breaking bread...well that's just what it is all suppose to be about.

Enjoy your preparations as your feast awaits you. Offer up those morsels to your guests. Bring the low up to the seat of honor. Let em' feast a while.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• 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."
