Spiritual Sundays

I am new to this so I went to my bookshelf. I have there God's Little Instruction Book. It was my grandma Russell's. If I have met a 'saint-like' woman it was her. She was the epitome of what it means to be a 'good' woman. I can still hear certain hymns and in my mind be transported to the pew next to her as she sang with such an open spirit to her creator.

So I dug out the book...and I flipped until I found something compelling.

Your companions are like the buttons on an elevator. They will either take you up or they will take you down.

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20

I felt this was so appropriate for this blog community to which I am so new. Finding this new way to share our love of cottage style and all it embodies is amazing. Beyond that to find that so many of you are good and faithful women and still enjoy caring for our families. In all our different ways makes me joyful.
So for my part of Spiritual Sunday I say we celebrate our wise friends and continue to prove that the internet is only as good or bad as we choose it to be. Where will YOu surf today?

This is an excellent post for Spiritual Sundays. I'm so glad you are participating. I've enjoyed seeing your prior posts as well. I'm still "kinda" new to blogging. I started in January. Where did the time go? Seems like it was just yesterday.

This is a great post. A wonderful reminder to all of us that it is not just our own actions that effect us but also those we spend our time with.

It is so true that our choice of companions determines the tenor of our lives. May we always see to build up our fellow bloggers.

Hi there:

Really love your blog, nice to fellowship with a a"christian blogger". You entered my "Pay It forward" but I cannot get your email address from your blog. Could you email me with your name & address so I can get the goodies off to you? Thank you for entering, it was fun.

I wholeheartedly agree. God has made so many things to be created and the enemy has endeavored to pervert ALL that is good. Great piece!
