Proverbs 19

I was reading my Bible before I went to bed and Proverbs 19:20 just really stood out to me. If you receive instruction and listen to what your parents have to say then I will be wise when I am older! That verse has a promise in it! I hope that I will be able to keep that verse in my heart and  listen to what my parents have to say.

Proverbs 19

19 Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
Also it is not good for a soul to be without knowledge,
And he sins who hastens with his feet.
The foolishness of a man twists his way,
And his heart frets against the Lord.
Wealth makes many friends,
But the poor is separated from his friend.
A false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who speaks lies will not escape.
Many entreat the favor of the nobility,
And every man is a friend to one who gives gifts.
All the brothers of the poor hate him;
How much more do his friends go far from him!
He may pursue them with words, yet they abandon him.
He who gets wisdom loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding will find good.
A false witness will not go unpunished,
And he who speaks lies shall perish.
10 Luxury is not fitting for a fool,
Much less for a servant to rule over princes.
11 The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger,
And his glory is to overlook a transgression.
12 The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion,
But his favor is like dew on the grass.
13 A foolish son is the ruin of his father,
And the contentions of a wife are a continual dripping.
14 Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers,
But a prudent wife is from the Lord.
15 Laziness casts one into a deep sleep,
And an idle person will suffer hunger.
16 He who keeps the commandment keeps his soul,
But he who is careless of his ways will die.
17 He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord,
And He will pay back what he has given.
18 Chasten your son while there is hope,
And do not set your heart on his destruction.
19 A man of great wrath will suffer punishment;
For if you rescue him, you will have to do it again.
20 Listen to counsel and receive instruction,
That you may be wise in your latter days.
21 There are many plans in a man’s heart,
Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.
22 What is desired in a man is kindness,
And a poor man is better than a liar.
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life,
And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;
He will not be visited with evil.
24 A lazy man buries his hand in the bowl,
And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25 Strike a scoffer, and the simple will become wary;
Rebuke one who has understanding, and he will discern knowledge.
26 He who mistreats his father and chases away his mother
Is a son who causes shame and brings reproach.
27 Cease listening to instruction, my son,
And you will stray from the words of knowledge.
28 A disreputable witness scorns justice,
And the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.
29 Judgments are prepared for scoffers,
And beatings for the backs of fools.

I had some fun with the candles and with my camera settings. I thought it was really cool! I even did a "D"!
 There was a beautiful sunset the other night! I watched it slowly get darker! It was way cool!

Tea For Three

I got up this morning knowing that Mom had a lot of things to do today and that I wanted to help! So I cleaned the kitchen, (with Kelle's help) set up the dining room for a tea party with our very good friend. And I did it all before Mom came downstairs! She was really surprised! I am glad I helped her get ready!
The Dining Room table before:
Last night I made dinner for my family and I have to say that I felt like I was in a restaurant! I indeed learned from the best! My Mom!
