Rrrrrrr...this makes me happy!




Making Wise the Simple...

Psalms 19: 7-9
P= Perfect - "The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. "
T= Trustworthy - " The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple."
R= Right - "The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. "
R= Radiant- " The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. "
P= Pure - "The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. "
S= Sure - "The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous."
There is my Sure word again...."surely", with confidence, without doubt...You know I have people say to me all the time, "how do you have time to blog", how do you have time to do this and that. Well, you know you have time to do whatever is most important to you. My time alone with God each morning, is something that I make time to do, and my way of expressing is blogging. I told Lelia this morning, that this has been the most challenging year of my life and the "best", because I have given God the first of my day and it has made all the difference in my life. He holds my right hand, and his grace has been sufficient for my every need. My prayer today is that in every situation, whether good or bad, that I STOP, and know that HE is with me. "The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple."

Luncheon Meeting...


I attended our Greater Tyler Association of Realtors membership meeting at Willowbrook today. Proud to say that we had our election of officers for 2010, and I will be the Treasurer of the Greater Tyler Association of Realtors. Great group of people, working everyday for to protect the rights of property owners.
The mission statement of GTAR is:

"To be the advocate for Realtors professionalism, profitability and success while defending the personal property rights of the communities we serve."


We also heard from Tom Morgan, an attorney with the Texas Association of Realtors. We, as Realtors, have the ability to call and confer with these attorney's as needed.

Great Day!



Psalms 18:1-2

I love you, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn
of my salvation, my stronghold.


I read these verses this morning, and I love this passage. I like, my.....God, is my rock...
How in the world, does anyone live without God...

Just do right...


This post is for my daughter, Lauren...You read this over and over again, and never forget this!
As far as the picture, just thought it would make you smile!

Psalms 15
"LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill?
He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous,

who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman,
who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD,
who keeps his oath even when it hurts,
who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things will never be shaken."

Recession ending?...


Three things have to happen before the current recession can be declared ended. One is underway, said Dr. Mark Dotzour, chief economist for the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University.
"I think the economy will begin to turn for the better once the health care and cap-and-trade issues are settled. Those two political debates are creating substantial uncertainty for business owners and investors," he said.
The personal savings rate is the second trend to watch, said Dotzour.
"Over 70 percent of the U.S. economy is consumer spending," he said. "When the savings rate finally levels out, consumer spending will start to increase again."
Increased corporate profits are the third trend that must occur to bring the recession to an end. There is some indication that has already begun. The last three data points were all up. Rising profits lessen the urge for companies to lay off workers.
Research Economist Dr. Jim Gaines added that the increased corporate profits have come from reduced costs, not the kind that leads to expansion.
"Keep your eye on these three issues," Dotzour said. "When they are resolved, the economy will begin to turn the corner."

Interesting, take time to read...

Surely again...

I cannot believe how many times "surely" is in the Bible. I do love this word, meaning, without doubt, confident. Everytime I read the word surely, I am going to post it. Just today I came across it two times...
Joshua 5:12
"For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield."
Matthew 28:20
"And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Columbus Day...

"October 12, observed in the United States in commemoration of the landing by Christopher Columbus in 1492 in America, which became known as "the New World" because Europeans did not know that it had existed."
One of my friends on Facebook suggested we all go around looking LOST and name things... :)
