"Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart." 2 Timothy 2:22

This bevo is going to go on a long trip from Texas to the UK. He is Texas Born and Bred. Not sure where the BORN and BRED came from, was it a movie? I know in the UK they had a show entitled Born and Bred about four years ago. I think this little fellow will like his new surroundings and will take a bit of Texas with him; he was after all born/created on Texas soil.

You were born here on earth, on God's soil. This is God's turf isn't it? If you were blessed you grew up in a family that took care of the "Bred" part and brought you up as a His child in His word. Or maybe later in life you were really blessed to discover it on your own. So I guess in a nut shell you are born and bred to be HIS children. Take pride in this legacy of love and teach it to your children. His love and His grace and His word will mold their lives and the generations to follow after.

Does it benefit your children if you bring them up to be lovers of themselves or lovers of money? What will this society be like if the children today grow up proud, abusive and disobedient to their parents? They end up living life with out knowing love or goodness. Instead their lives will be filled with unforgiving attitudes and ungrateful thoughts for the blessings in life. They will be lovers of pleasure and not lovers of God. You can read all about this in the next few verses of 2 Timothy 2:22 and on....

I am feeling better this morning. Yesterday Mom brought lunch over to me and we had a good two hour visit. When Terry got home we went for a long walk in the neighborhood. I love our neighborhood. It is a meca for little ones and families.

Then we went to Central Market. I had been there with Stacey last week and thought we would try it out. I have to say the fruit at CM was better than Whole Foods, and they had a larger selection of bread and spices, but nothing else was better. It took twice as long to shop there as at CM they run you through a maze in the store, forcing you to go through areas you do not need to go to, but then you get stuck in maze traffic. NOT FUN. Then check out...eeeeekkkkk. LONG LONG LINES and no sackers. The register people had to sack while checking you out. That takes twice as long. Terry ended up sacking out stuff. I always shop with cotton veggie/fruit bags and our large canvas bags for packing. At CM you have to enter numbers to get tags on all the veggies and fruits you buy... the stickers do not stick on my fabric bags. I end up sticking them all over my jacket till we hit the check out counter. CM is not Green for the world, or they would not promote plastic bags in the veggie/fruit department. ALL the people working there were very helpful. That experience was pleasant. It may be hard but we may have to shop both places.

Still no grand baby for those waiting to hear. BELIEVE ME...when it happens you will read it here on the blog!!! Watch for updates. If our daughter does not go into labor this week, they will induce next week. GOD IS GOOD!

JOY JOY JOY, with a blending of Abundance,

Bring your children up in the training and instruction of the Lord”. – Ephesians 6:4
