Torbay is a lovely little town to live in, but there is nothing famous about it. We have a community garden in which people plant their own vegetables. Well, that's what most people have been planting so far. Those who have a plot will be harvesting soon, and we will be starting again next Spring. We do have a strong Town Council which hosts many activities for the community. A new bakery just opened up here, and they have fantastic homemade bread. I haven't had a chance to try anything else, yet. I love living here.

I think these verses are saying that having knowledge of God equates to being wise. Knowledge is not the same as wisdom. It is wise to heed God's commandments and teachings, but have knowledge of Him does not make you wise.

I agree. As we write we get new ideas that we can turn into more stories and novels. We can also draw on the things that happen in our lives to come up with plots.

I think these verses are saying that our bad behavior will turn out lives upside down, but living in the way God prescribes will improve our lives and help us have everything we need.

I think I live more like everything is a miracle, thought not exactly either. I see the positive side of things. I try to see how to make something helpful, and I usually don't let negative things influence my life or thinking. That's just how I am.

I think that these verses are warning of God's anger if we don't listen to Him. I don't see God as a vengeful or angry God. I think He would be more patient and loving if we go a way He doesn't approve of. I believe that God would gently draw us back to Him.

I am all set for my rotation tomorrow. My website account only allows me to sell five cards at a time in the shop. I would either have to rotate everyday or every week. I opted to go with the weekly rotation and offer a custom service. I almost have my next book outlined. It will be finished soon, and I will begin writing.
Here's to another busy week.

Critics thrive on people who are waiting for others to tell them whether something is worth doing, so I think Ms. Brown is probably right. We can rise strong if we believe in what we are doing, and are willing to go on with a strong resolve to do whatever possible to succeed.

I think these verses are saying that you must keep trying to reach out to those who reject or ignore you. Jesus certainly never gave up on people. He kept reaching out with His ministry and how He treated those He met. I do think their may be a point in which you should evaluate a situation and move on. You might be putting your effort to something that is not working, if you don't. But, you must keep trying until you make this determination. There are those you can help and those you can't.

I work from home so a stormy day does not interfere with my day. I stay home and work on my computer. I go out on stormy days only if I have a doctor's appointment. Stormy days don't bother me. They bother my cat a lot more.

I think these verses are telling us to not hide our wise words. Others can benefit from our wisdom, so we should shout it from the rooftops, as it were. Very good advice.

I have always wondered why fictional ghosts appear to people in fancy things like red silk or suits made of cotton or something else ordinary. I have watched some of these ghost detecting shows where the researchers think they are dealing with real ghosts, and those ghosts seem to be in common clothing. I have always assumed that ghosts, if they choose to appear to the living at all, would be wearing the clothes they were buried in. I am sure they would be more concerned with their quandary spiral than fashion.

I might not be understanding the verses, but I think that they are saying that sinners end up hurting themselves in the end. I agree with this. People who do unsavory things, especially things that hurt others, do get caught and pay for their acts in the end.

I don't think I agree with Brian Porter. Acceptance and tolerance are the first steps to achieving respect for all of humanity. We must accept others as they are, no matter their color, race, or anything else that does not matter. This is the only way to come to respect each other and come together as a community.

It looks like there might not be a prompt, so I would like to discuss one of my favorite verses from the Bible.

John 13:34-35
New International Version

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

I have always loved this verse. Jesus Christ taught many profound things about God, but He also taught a lot of common sense things. I think this was one of them. If we follow this New Commandment we can't go wrong. Just loving each other will assure that we don't hurt each other. We will certainly live our lives the way God commanded us to. Very good teaching from Christ, the man I admire most in the world.

Honestly, I had never considered Autumn flowers until I started gardening myself. Every time I use Miracle Grow, my garden is always gorgeous. About late Summer my Summer flowers start to wilt and are replaced by bolder colored flowers. Other flowers must bloom in Autumn. I just have never found out.

I suppose a sacrificial life could be a life in which the person does nothing that could lead to sinful behavior like drinking, dancing or anything like that which involve debauchery of any sort.

Don't despair,
You might need send you love on computer,
But your dog is always there to hug.

I am not sure that the promise in the Fifth Commandment has anything to do with the Commandment itself. I don't see how it is relevant now. We need to be respectful to our parents because they go to the trouble of raising us.
