Abounding With Blessings

A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent. Proverbs 28:20 

This verse tells us that a faithful person, a truthful person, a steady person, a “do what you say you are going to do” person shall ABOUND with blessings.

Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eye service, as men pleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: and whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:22-24

You have a quality in you that is in great demand in the world today. It is faithfulness.

No More Mistakes

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. Lamentation 3:21-25 

God’s mercy, even though we do not do anything to deserve it, is always towards us. It is because of God’s continued faithfulness that we are given a fresh start every new day.

Love & Faithfulness

Let love and faithfulness never leave bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.  Proverbs 3:3-4

Love and Faithfulness are IMPORTANT. Keep conscious of them. Practice Love and Faithfulness when you have opportunities.

You can do it!

But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.  Psalm 86:15

God is all of these things. HIS nature is in you. You have the capacity on the inside of you to be compassionate, gracious, slow to anger and abounding in love and faithfulness. What do these qualities mean? 

7,369 Miles - The Food We Ate

When traveling 7,369 Miles, 1 Month, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 10 States, with 1 Suitcase, 1 Duffle Bag, a Toddler and an iPod you will need to stop for food. 

We had a small soft sided cooler to keep snacks, juice and sodas cold. And a 2 gallon water jug, at night we would fill the water jug with hotel ice, we never ran out of water and it tasted decent.

Most mornings, I would get up before the boys go to the hotel lobby and bring several plates of food back to our room. Having breakfast at the hotel saved $10-15 every day, so it was a win in my mind, especially since I love waffles and pancakes for every meal.

Lunch would be a stop at a drive through or snacks and fruit from a grocery store, a favorite was cheese and crackers or lime chips. David was always on the look out for fish and chips. I'm not a fish person but the fish was really fresh since we were so close to the ocean and very tasty.

Dinner was hit and miss. Some days we drove longer than expected, other days we found something right away or were wanting something in particular. Toward the end of our trip David discovered that extra cheese and pepperoni on a pan style pepperoni pizza from Pizza Hut was fantastic, we would order a medium for $10 and have left overs for breakfast or lunch the next day.
