  1. Renewed She often hid in the bungalow by the river especially during times of stress. For, she was the Bursar at the local community college in the bustling city of Anchorage, Maine. On her days in the bungalow she enjoyed going out into the beautiful green meadow to pick the yellow buttercups that grew there. She would string the flowers together to make a buttercup wreath that she hung outside on the front door to her bungalow. She would also put some of the buttercups in a vase on the table in her kitchen. They were what she needed to brighten the room. For buttercu
  2. Truly Benevolent A virgin of one score and ten years, she was immensely benevolent in her giving to help the poor and distressed. This would be her third missionary cruise to South America. She slept soundly in the berth while others chatted away about the state of the people in Guatemala. They were in dire need of personal cleaning supplies and fresh water. The schools were in dire need of books and a meal program to feed the children breakfast and lunch. She looked like an angelic being with her beryl necklace hung around her long neck. She was as gracious as the most elegant
  3. Exercising Control: An Element of the Wise Proverbs 25:28 (KJV)-He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, without walls. Proverbs 29:11-(KJV) A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

  5. Truly Loyal and Fully Committed As a Christian, I am fully committed to following the example of Godly living that Christ left behind for us believers. I am truly in love with the Lord Jesus, not just because he sacrificed his life for my sins, but because he is a true friend. When I have no one to turn to, for help, God is there for me through my fellowship with Christ. There are many instances in the bible where his chosen leaders and chosen people express their unfailing love and devotion to the Lord. From Daniel to David, his chosen leaders were fully committed to God
  6. Expect God to Never Fail Us and To Provide For His Chosen People We should expect the best out of our God and not the worse. We should expect God to keep the promises he made to us in his word and to take care of us if we seek him whole heartedly. Matthew 6:31-33, Therefore take no thought saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: for your heavenly father knoweth that ye have need of all these things, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all t
